New Senko No Ronde: DUO screenshots and videos

(I love the begining to this song.)

I really want this game to come out on the 360 again, I also want
it to come to the US again.Its unlikely that this is going to
happen thanks to how much the first one sold here though.I still
go on a couple nights a week around midnight to see if I can get a
couple games going, sometimes I do and sometimes I dont.

The game is looking awesome though.So far there are only 3
returning characters (Cuilan,Fabian The Fastman and Baek Chang Po)
and 6 new characters (Ley LeFanu, Henri Xia Xiaotien, Luca
werfel,Katie Xia Xue Juan, Dixie Dutilleux and Itsuka.)Theres some
sort of partner system going on where you pick your character,
and a character that changes your stats along with giving you new
special attacks.

from what ive seen, luca might have to be my character of choice
this time around, her rounder (mech) looks almost exactly like my
favorite character's rounder but lev's is looking pretty awesome
too. so yea, enjoy the screenshots and videos.

By the way, if you have Wartech for the 360 and have been looking
for a match, try coming to this website. There
arent too many people signed up yet, but who knows, maybe there will be soon.

5 reasons to play Lost Planet: Colonies Edition

5. Frank West

Just look at him, he's incredible

4. The People That Play

Most of the people that you meet in this game are very nice and they know how to use teamwork(especially the japanese dudes).When i first started playing lost planet i always went off by myself, so i would get my ass handed to me while my teammates were doing well, so after a while i started sticking with the rest of the team, and now id like to think im pretty good.

3.VS Annihilator

like this, but with more people

This mode is awesome. Each team has one person on thier team with a VS(vital suit(mech)). Its the other peoples job to either take down the battle gauge of the other team, or take down the other teams VS. so its kind of like VIP in some other games, except that the VSs have infinite lasers so they also go after the teams players and mech.

2. Counter Post

In this mode there is only one data post(flag) and both teams have to fight over control of it. After one team gets it, they have to defend it for a set amount of time. the other team has to attack and try to attack to gain control of the post so they can defend it. Basicly this mode is like domination on call of duty 4, but with one flag instead of three.

1.Akrid Hunter

BEST ONLINE MODE a full game, its 12 humans versus 4 huge akrid. the goal is simple, kill the akrid so that thier battle gauge reaches 0, but its ALOT harder than it sounds.The Akrid have tons of defense, alot of health, and any of thier attacks can kill you in one hit, so if you dont use teamwork... you're going to lose very fast. i remember this one match on canyon 810 with a full game it kept going back and forward between the two teams, in the end, the humans(my team) lost, but in the end game lobby, nobody bitched about losing, and nobody rubbed the fact that they won in the losing teams face. Everyone just laughed cuase it was such a crazy match.

The game is only 30 dollars. and with 11 modes,21 weapons, 7 grenades, 20 maps and a good community, at least rent it, theres bound to be something that will keep you coming back for more.

Cute 'em up 2: Trouble Witches

Trouble Witches
Studio Siesta
Horizontal Cute 'em up

Another Studio Siesta game.This game managed to go from doujin game, to arcade game, to getting an english release. i dont know when the english version is coming out, but the manual is already in english.(Heres where i couldnt think of what to write.I'm also lazy so this is where i tell you how awesome everything in the game is, how good it looks, how nice it sounds, how the option has a magic thingy that slows down bullets and if the enemy that shoots those bullets gets destroyed, the bullets turn into money for you to buy cards that change your bullet patern.)

So yea, download this game, and if you like it, buy the english version whenever it comes out :).

Trouble Witches+ Patch download
Trouble Witches English Manual

By the way, you're going to need daemon tools or something similar to run the bin file so you can install the game( or you can just burn the image to a cd and run it from there).
Daemon Tools

Z = Shoot / Yes (For Menu's)
X = Special
C = Use Card
Up Arrow = Move Up
Down Arrow = Move Down
Left Arrow = Move Left
Right Arrow = Move Right
Escape = Pause / Quit

Cute 'em up 1: Air Rade Air

I've been meaning to make a post about this game for a while now, but ive been kind of busy. Airrade Air is one of my favorite shoot em ups ever made. I love everything about it, even though its not a very hard shoot em up.

The monsters: dogs,frogs, fans, little girls, dinosaurs, seagulls and other stuff.ive always like cute em ups more than shoot em ups becuase they're always different. shoot em ups are mostly just ship, bigger ship, boss ship.

The characters: Theres so many of them,and they're all different, and they all power up thier bullets. also you arent given every character when you start the game, you have to unlock them.

The music: It fits just right, and makes the game 10 times better that it already is.

Everyone needs to download this game, and play it.
I would tell you to buy the game(even though im giving you the full version), but i cant find a anywhere to link you to, sorry.

Download link: Airrade Air
Here are the default controls:
o Z = Shoot / Yes (For Menu's)
o X = Punch 1
o C =Punch 2(uppercut)
o P = Pause Menu
o Up Arrow = Move Up
o Down Arrow = Move Down
o Left Arrow = Move Left
o Right Arrow = Move Right

Have fun.

2 bits of shoot em up news(actually one is more of a rumor)

ill try to keep this post under 10 lines, cause i dont really need more than that

retrohead from DS-Scene is making a homebrew version of radiant silvergun, it looks awesome, watch the video.(its an alpha, i know the video doesnt have sound)

XNEWS has something about Otomedius G being on konami's supply website for the xbox 360. i hope it comes to xbox live, or if its on disc, that anyone but ubisoft brings it over to the US(assuming that its actually coming out and that i read google translated text right).
(Video is of Otomedius)

What happened to her face?

im confused, this is supposed to be a team ninja game, which means nice bodies and cute faces. the video starts off nice enough but then all of a sudden they show her face... and my face went like this...

how could this have happened? were they not watching when they made her?did the person making her let the mouse slip on the sexy-meter or something?

Im sad now :(

(still buying the game day 1 though)

little bit of a comparison

Ha Ha, Show Them Online Part 11: Exception

[edit: i decided to let you choose one of TWO songs you can play... also a gameplay video for the game]

before you read the post, if you're wondering what this song is...too bad, or if you know my youtube just look there.

i decided to change from ten games at once to one at a time
becuase I'm too lazy to write 2-3 sentences about 10 games. You'll
still get your 200 games, just very slowly.

Ok... Exception, its a simple game, you're a cube, and you shoot
other cubes. nothing shoots back at you and there can be hundred of enemies on the screen... ah screw it, heres the full game, i dont feel like writing the rest of the paragraph

(End note: it took me a week to write this post...seriously.)

From what it was, to what it is.

Genetos is an evolving shoot em up that takes you through the history of the genre. the demo only has three stages. The first bring a space invaders clone, the second a nes game and the third a snes game. basicly you shoot things and take the green(or blue) circles to fill the gauge at the bottom. once it gets full the gauge will reset but your ship will evolve into a stronger one.The music in this game is pretty cool and fits the game well. The demo is only 3 megabytes, so i suggest everyone try it. Also, i know i posted this yesterday, but for some reason it never went on to the community blogs after i pressed publish.


And of course, where i usually find my shoot em up news: Shoot The Core

Ha Ha, Show Them Online: Part 1 of 20

I'm not a good writer, I cant write paragraph after paragraph of information telling you why you should or shouldnt play the games im gonna show you. I can however, find alot of games for you guys to waste some time on when your're bored.As of right now i have almost 1000 doujin games sitting on my computer, and i decided to share 200 of them with you... little bit by little bit.Some of these games are only gonna be demos of thier full versions, cuase i dont want you guys to pirate games from indie guys, but i will give you the website of the people that made them in case you want to buy them.

(BTW, download link for every edition will be at the bottom of the post)
(BTW 2, not every game in here is a demo, some are freeware)

1.Beast Invaders 3
The sheep have had enough of Ron Workman's antics and decided to fight back, shoot em up style. its your job to put them back in thier place.Everytime you kill one of them, they talk to you kinda like how in space giraffe you see those game related memes.

2.Clanada: Gensou Shoujo
I love when you have to fight weird things in shoot em ups. In this one, you fight slimes, party hats, star shaped cookies and playing cards.the graphics are really nice on this which is always a plus.

3.Crazy Patterns
This game is more of a bullet pattern simulator than a shoot em up, basicly you just see how long you can dodge the bullets while shooting the middle. It doesnt matter where on screen you are, the bullets always aim for the counter in the middle and the patterns can get pretty crazy(hence the name).

This game is pretty cool, and not just becuase it has the same name as me. its kinda like an old mario game, but instead of hopping on things heads to kill them, you slash them with a knife. also theres wall jumping.


Basicly you start on either a black or white screen and use your mouse to move your guy around, balls of paint show up, and you blow them into smaller peices, after they're completely destroyed they change the color ofthe screen a bit, so the goal of the game is to change to color of the screen to the opposite of what you started with. or you can take binary zoos description:
mono - part Asteroids
mono - part Robotron
mono - part Paint Shop Pro

7.Shmester 5000
I really like the graphics on this game, they remind me of alien hominid.Enemies dont shoot you, but if you touch anything without any shields, you die.Short description is short.

Unyaa is a very cute game, but its also very small, it has few enemies and no music, but that doesnt
mean it isnt fun.this is usually the first one i go to when i have 5 minutes to kill.

9.Sky Swimmers Heaven
i talked about this game a little bit in an old post, but even though its a 1 stage demo, its awesome,
it has action, it has shooting, it has awesome music. You would be stupid not to try it.

10.G-Type[Cant find the website, but its a full game anyway]
G-Type is a mix of Gradius, and R-Type... i think thats all that needs to be said

Well, thats it for this part... next part goes up after i come back from el salvador. Cya.

Escatos - 3D "shotting" Action RPG(also flash game inside)

Youtube link

...or at least thats what it says at Onion Entertainments official site. i dont know much about the game other than what it shows in the video, has co-op, PVE and PVP. its coming out for the pc and the closed beta is (im guessing) febuary 2008. if i could read korean i could tell you some more info, but for now you have to settle for the video and the flash game that i included in this post that has nothing to do with this game but is still fun.
