RetroforceGO! recording episode #32 tonight: SHMUP EPISODE, OH GOD YES photo



When Dyson called to tell me we were doing an episode on 2D shooters, I had to check my calendar. My birthday isn't until May, and Christmas was weeks ago, so I was a bit confused. What had I done to deserve such a fantastic gift? At that moment, the heavens opened as angels sung the hymn of danmaku and my world was filled with resplendent color and light. Spring had come early. Cherry blossoms danced softly in the breeze, birds began chirping, brooks bubbled and splashed to life, flowers sprung from the ground in all directions. Then he said it was because Omega Five came out this week. 

Oh. Well, whatever.

Anyone who listens to our show knows how i feel about shmups, so there exists the possibility that this episode will consist mostly of me yapping about Japan-only Saturn titles and trying to hold back orgasms for an hour. As such, I have been fitted with a high-voltage "correctional collar" to ensure that the other cast members are allowed to speak. While I try to coax Chad into telling me which one of them has the remote for this thing, hit the comments with your questions.

Review: Ironfall: Invasion

Developing a Gears of War-like cover shooter for Nintendo 3DS is unconventional, but that's just what VD-Dev did with Ironfall: Invasion. Featuring both local and online multiplayer, as well as an 11-stage campaign, the project seems fairly ambitious for the handheld, and as you'd expect, there are mixed results. While multiplayer turned out well enough, the campaign is a mess.more

Far Cry 4 somehow gets more dangerous in Valley of the Yetis

If Far Cry 4's jaunt through Kyrat serves as any indication, the Himalayas are an incredibly dangerous place. Whatever isn't trying to maul you is trying to shoot bullets at you. It's like being caught between a rock and a h...more
