what is touhou and how do i get into it?

hidamari-sketch:

some dumbass set of soot ‘em up games. there’s a pretty large number of them now so it’s kinda difficult to say which one is 100% the best to start with, but I’d personally recommend Perfect Cherry Blossom (which is the seventh game). It doesn’t have as many cute girls as Imperishable Night but it’s overall progression is a lot more straightforward.

Wow not suggesting Mountain of Faith or Subterranian Animism what a pleb

Also trying to figure out if it’s worth trying to stream my bad valve server gameplay.

Still not totally sure about the Crusader’s Crossbow but I don’t really use my syringe gun too often anyway.

I’ll probably stick with it for a while to actually get a feel for it, but recently I’ve just been using my Ubersaw for self-defense, when not just running away.

Fun Idea

AU based loosely on the concept of Samurai Jack. Jack is Tenshi, Aku is Yukari.

Still a good idea tbh

Update!

ahelpfulhamster:

There still is not an official Touhou series game called “Unthinkable Natural Law”.

TOTALLY ORDINARY

TOTALLY ORDINARY

I’m surprised that the stage 1 mid boss from DDC is popular enough to have her own day.

Super Eirin thwarted by the strongest foe of all: Consistent Crash to Desktop.

That said, I was in the Renaissance around turn 120 (aka 600 AD) so things were going well otherwise. Honestly was in a good position to not reach triple digit population before winning the game.

Time to get this started and see how it goes.

(Warning: I have barely streamed so my settings for audio might be off, adjustments will be made if needed.)

I’m getting a good start pre-saved for Super-Eirin. Stream in a little while I guess?

I might actually stream Super-Eirin or another Marisa game tomorrow if anyone is interested in seeing me play civ mods.

And I still want to do a nuclear conquest as Utsuho and a true world conquest as Ryukyu in YNEAMP.

i accidentally chose Eirin for the AI civs twice and she really does not like herself.

Eirin as an AI tends to be a powerhouse and if there is anything a civ AI powerhouse doesn’t like, it’s other AI powerhouses.

I’ve actually never seen AI Eirin accomplish much. It doesn’t seem to abuse her specialist/GP bonuses to the absurd degree that human players can, so she usually ends up middle of the road. If I play with all Touhou AI civs, Alice, Nitori, or Cirno are usually in a strong lead, Keine, Kanako, Eirin and Mamizou can do alright for themselves, Remilia sits in a corner for the entire game and does nothing, and Okuu either conquers her entire continent by 1500 AD or pisses everybody off and ends up in last place.

All of that sounds 100% accurate, even if it excludes poor Shinki and Yumemi.
Do find that Suika and Yukari are rarely successful, by the way?
That said, here’s King AI Eirin in the game I played as Remi where I never built world wonders.


Eirin does usually do decent at science by AI standards, so yeah, I can definitely see her going runaway in the right circumstances. I don’t have Shinki, Yumemi, or Suika installed. I should probably install Suika, but her civ bonuses looked kinda bland. Still, it would be a decent change of pace, I guess.
But yeah, Yukari is in the ‘sits in her own corner and does nothing’ tier with Remilia. In my current game, she’s something like #3 by score, but that has more to do with her starting on her own personal continent than her civ. Usually, she’s a strong contender for ‘least successful civ that hasn’t been mostly conquered.’
I keep meaning to try playing her myself, since I’m pretty sure that her indirect fire bonus is the kinda thing the AI will never succeed in exploiting, whereas I think I could do terrible things with indirect fire Catapults, Trebuchets, and Cannons. Then I remember that I could instead play with Alice’s completely broken Doll Lumber Houses or Eirin’s absurd specialist/GP setup, or Nitori’s ‘as long as I start near a river, I will be an age ahead of everybody else circa the Renaissance’ science bonuses, or Okuu or Remilia or Mamizou or… yeah. In player hands, pretty much everybody (except maybe Keine) is broken in their own way, but I find Yukari to be the least interesting brokenness.

Suika is actually getting reworked by bouncymischa after I suggested that she be looked at for a revamp (because I found her to be quite unsuccessful compared to Nitori and Utsuho), and especially now that there’s a mod in beta that sort of ports the EU4 events and decisions. (She definitely isn’t anywhere near as interesting as bouncymischa’s later work right now.)
While aranicar still exists (he even has a blog on tumblr >__>), he doesn’t seem to be involved in his three pack anymore, so Yukari’s unlikely to get buffed by him. (And Alice and Nitori aren’t likely to get the slight nerfs they need.)
Eirin’s bonuses actually came up as a balance concern, and Huitzil says he’s looking to rework her a bit. I might see how stupid an abuse of the great tile improvements I can do before he does that.
Also, you might be interested to hear that civs based on Yuuka, Yuyuko, Mima, Marisa and Reimu are at least planned and partially complete.
I’ve actually played a game as Marisa and it was pretty great.

Utsuho has the best city list of ANY civ I’ve ever seen and it’d take a goddamn miracle for me to believe otherwise. (I modified the capital name because the default is dumb and long.)
