Caladrius shipped today... hopefully I get it before my cuz comes to visit next week as he's probably the biggest shmup fanatic besides me that I know IRL.... or more succinctly, the only one I know.

I'm going to wait for opinions before getting Caladrius or Sturmwind (Dreamcast).
I'll likely get them eventually, but with about a month till SDOJ and Delta+XII-ZEAL I'm in no rush. Looking forward to your impressions Gabrius!

I'm on a megadrive kick lately, got myself a Slapfight, Eliminate Down, and Twinkle Tale recently. And no, I didn't spend the $200-400ea that these games usually go for, I'm not that crazy...lol

As soon as these games arrive, I'm using the coupon codes to order both of those.

I've also bumped down the shipping to the free option as this is a ton of releases in such a short amount of time. As soon as Caladrius comes, I'll pop it in and give it a whirl ^_^

Radiant Silvergun (XBLA)
http://www.gamefaqs.com/xbox360/606283-radiant-silvergun

Simply put, my favorite SHMUP of all time. Originally released for home on the Sega Saturn, this game was, up to recently, quite expensive if you wanted to play... the import sells on eBay for over $200 regularly. Not so anymore you can get this gem on Xbox Live Arcade at a mere fraction of the cost! Everything about this game is excellent, from the graphics, to the epic boss fights, to the score composed by Hitoshi Sakimoto of Final Fantasy Tactics fame... even the story is awesome. Seriously, if you own one SHMUP, this should be it.


Congratulations on your fine taste, TC!

Sooo, Shooting Love 10th Anniversary...

Anybody else grabbing this one?

It's supposed to be out May 30th in Japan, guess I'll need it just to keep the collecting up.

I really need to make a separate corner for the Danmaku games, it's too hard to keep focus on the whole screen when it's a 60", but on my 27" monitor it should work better.
Sometimes I don't blink for a good, few minutes when it's really hectic, and it burns my eyes like a mf after a session like that :(

Hey Gabe, which shmups are you going to get?
