#Shmups


8===D
  Watch Video I've talked in the past about game preservation, and I can't stress enough how important it is. While many pine for "the old days," and are somewhat blinded by impartial nostalgia, there are a lot of incredible works in our past that need to be remembered, studied, and enjoyed for years to come.  Pretty much all of Cave's catalog, including DoDonPachi Resurrection, falls into that purview.   read

Tachyon Project

  Watch Video I was lucky to have been introduced to Cave shooters at a young age. I had a friend who lived in Japan and had family there, so he'd just bring games back over and we'd play them. Most were ported from the arcades to the PS2,...   read
