Topher Cantler loves shmups to infinity play. This Gradius game is hard as MegaMan 9, but mega man 9 is getting more easy for me don't ask me about the crazy achievements (such as 30th time beat MM 9). I here Topher talks about shumps on Retroforce GO show particular on dreamcast game (Radiant Silvergun, Geometry Wars, R-Type, Raiden, Donpachi, and especially Ikaruga).
