SHMUPS Episode II: Next Gen

The first shmup I played was probably Darius Gaiden for Sega Saturn which was about a 7.5. Then I bought the pretty awesome Gradius V and R-Type Final for PS2. I pirated some saturn shmups and ps2 shmups for emulator usage. I got a modchip memory card that plays pirated PS2 SHMUPs on any PS2. Previously, I used PCSX2 of course.

I noticed a lot of expensive region free DoDonPachi Xbox 360 games out made by CAVE, the last SHMUP developer. SHMUPS are expensive and stupid, yet I pay up due to the $50 stable market value. I have nobody to show off too. DoDonPachi series is the hardest bullet hell shmups anywhere.

I purchased DoDonPachi Daioujou Black Label, Do Don Pachi Resurrection REV 1.5, Espgaluda II Black Label, Mushihimesama Futari Ver 1.5 this week, because I had that kind of money. Each of these are as good as Gradius V on PS2. They have review scores ranging from 7.5 to 8.5. I also realize that I can get these SHMUPs free if I can find the MAME Roms via rapidshare (no easy task, yet I'm impatient $$$$).

Everybody sucks at these games. I am a suicidal pilot who is lucky to get to level 3 before game over. This happens to hardcore gamers as well. Theses games are really over the top as far as difficulty.

Guilty pleasure X360 games!!!
