I love pretty much all the themes, it is hard to pick favourites. But for me 'The Gensokyou the Gods Loved', 'Reach for the Moon, Immortal Smoke', 'Deaf to all but the Song' are up there, along with countless others.

I base my themes on Tiers; I have no favourite theme per se, but all of those I rank on the top pretty much equally.

I can't even really tier mine properly, I go through moods. Sometimes I'll just need to play one of them over and over.

I personally tend to enjoy "invisble full moon" the most, but on the whole I agree with all of Daimon's tier 1 themes. I find that I love all the windows era characters roughly equally though, except Lily white, because fuck Lily White, ruining your day halfway through stage four.

Lily White isn't big on my list, but I find it her pretty hilarious.

I love it when she is mentioned in the Touhou manzai skits.

How can you not like the fairy herald of Spring? Come on, it's Lily White!

more like "herald of even more bullshit that will end you" because after you beat her the *real* punishment starts coming.

In case you couldn't tell, I *really* don't like stage four of Perfect Cherry Blossom. The Prismriver Sisters themselves aren't that bad, but the stage itself is utterly annoying. It's even worse than stage five and six put together if you ask me.

I liked all the stages of Perfect Cherry Blossom, and especially stage 4 - mostly because it was the only one I could consistantly beat on lunatic. Lily white wasn't too bad. Best run I ever did ran to the middle of Youmu in stage 5 before I had to use my first continue.

Wait . . . really? how are you that good?

If you're having problems with PCB try using the sync patch. Also some people are just good at certain classes of cards and crap at others. I know there are types of cards people have real trouble with that are jokes for me, and others tha people do fine on that are hard for me.

I generally don't use continues, because it feels wrong to me to keep going on if you died that much.

Not going at 60fps is a bit :-/ though.

Well it's all good as long as you're having fun. :-)

Ouch.

But the thing I love about Touhou is that its so inclusive, it's really for everyone, 'easy mode' jokes aside.

True, I mean, I've 1cc'd around half of the games on easy by now, but have yet to even *clear* any of them on normal

will I get in trouble for announcing that TH15 Legacy of Lunatic Kingdom's full version is set to release in three days? what if I mention that ZUN has included a totally new "point device" mode that gives you unlimited attempts, but only one life per attempt per section?

I...don't really remember the rules on Necroing and can't find anything in the official rules threads

and yet I'm doing it anyway

Well, I just 1cc'd Touhou14 on normal. So I guess its time to move onto Legacy of Lunatic Kingdom.

BTW: Shaft-angle boss who spins stage around is NOT COOL ZUN. :? :? :? (Okay, the level is fun, but holy wtf I was spamming bombs like no tomorrow)

... Holy fucking shit. Touhou15 is unbelievably hard. Normally I can do okay on Hard but Normal th15 is totally wrecking me. Stage 5 in particular is god damned insane.
