Two of the hardest bosses in gaming history


Even if you disagreed with my earlier ramblings that shmup players experience a different sort of zen in their trials and tribulations than most of us do, you have to admit that the above video -- the final boss in stage 5 of Mushihimesama Futari -- is the most insane thing ever. Shmup fans insist that nobody has beat this boss without continuing. Warning! This video may cause unsightly crapping of the pants.
Though I love me a good shmup, I've never been much for the bullet hell titles, games that focus just a smidge too much on the wee-hitbox, high-memorization, ultimate dodging super-doom style of gameplay. Still, impressive nonetheless.
Hit the jump for an even crazier video from Mushihimesama Ultra, guaranteed to make your nose bleed.
Also: don't forget, shmup fans: Radio Allergy (AKA Radirgy) is supposedly due out on the GameCube next week. I say "supposedly" because it's not listed at GameStop or anywhere else of note except Amazon and Wal-Mart. Keep an eye out, it's only twenty bucks. Ah, frugality!
