Whoa. Lots of new blood! Always great to see.

Whether it's shooters, arcade games, or hardware how to there is no better place in the net.

Hi everybody.

I found this website when looking for greatest shmups of all time lists. I really respect the collective opinions of this website. I recently bought Ginga Force and Psyvariar Delta which I would have known nothing about if it wasn't for this place. I began playing video games on the NES and played lots of shmups in the Arcades. Over the last several years my taste in games has gone back to skill based, gameplay focused games, and shmups are my favorite genre. I'm not the best at them. In fact, shmups are probably the most difficult genre for me. But I love playing them and reaching the limits of my ability and the work I put into them. Though I could probably get a lot better if I just focused on a single game at a time. I only play games on the PS4 so my options are limited, but M2 is a godsend. My PSN is Acidthesist. Feel free to add me.

Hi everybody,

I'm terrible at shmups but I only recently started playing them. I die every 30 seconds on Espgaluda but I love Lords of Thunder. I need to look up some more to try.

You might like Hyper Duel (either the arcade or Saturn version), it's got a foot-to-the-floor tenor very similar to Lords. No sword attack, but you can turn into a rifle-wielding mech who's invincible to terrain. :wink: Saturn's probably the best version, the arrange mode lets you lock the mech's aim for easy strafing/focus fire.

Hey Folks, I’m new here so I’m doing the introduction post. Got into shmups when I was a kid 1986-ish and my mom would take me to the laundromat so I would play an old Galaga arcade cabinet that was there. From there I’d dabble in Gradius and Lifeforce on my NES. I really got into the genre when I started playing Steel Empire for the Genesis which coincidently My first 1CC. That laid a pretty good foundation for the genre that prepared me for the crazier games like Radiant Slivergun and Ikaruga. I still mostly play on consoles with a bit of emulation here and there. My favorite shmup is Android Assault: Revenge of Bari-Arm and my favorite OST is Lords of Thunder. I wouldn’t consider myself a very good at the genre but I like it enough to keep coming back to it. If I’m not playing shooters I’m playing rpgs.

Looking forward to interacting with you all.

That looks really good, I'll give it a try. I definitely need to look into Saturn more, never had one though I tried emulating some.

Might as well start here.
I found this forum when browsing for a way to get muchi muchi pork! to run on my PC. Since my friends don't really like shmups, I'm happy to find other people to talk about it. At the moment I'm still trying to 1CC touhou games, but I have had much fun with other shmups like Crimzon Clover. I haven't played shmups for a long time yet, only for one year or so. Much like Acid said earlier, over the last year I've gone back to more skill based games, and like how they push me to my limits. Also, they are a great way to train my patience and stay calm in stress situations. Otherwise I play lots of roguelikes or go through emulators like cocaine.
I hope (and I think I will) have a nice time here!

Hi all, this actually my second self introduction, as I had another account under the name Steevtee but I couldn't reactivate the account...

Anyway, I've been playing shmups (badly) as early as River Raid and Spider Fighter on the Atari 2600, then many more from Xenon 2, R-Type, Raiden to Gradus V, Radiant Silvergun, Dariusburst CS, Ikaruga and many more inbetween. I've just bought Sturmwind EX on XO and Soldner X2 which are fun.

I enjoy making my own shmups too, and am working on a Turrican inspired shmup about which I have started a topic in the dev thread.

Cheers!

hi everyone, i've only played a handful of shmups in my life (i remember having a grand time with ikaruga on the GC), but i'm still glad to be here.
i'll be trying my best to learn the world of CRT; i understand this forum is full of wisdom.
hope you are all doing well

Welcome (back)!

Did you choose your new username because you love the Jaguar? Or some other reason? I grew up with the Jag and still play it fairly regularly. It gets an unfairly bad rap. I can't say I'm a fan of Trevor McFur, but I probably owe my love of Raiden to the Jag port.

Hi, everyone!
I found about this place thanks to a post from Sir Ilpalazzo on another forum where he shared some of his favorite games. I like arcadey games of all sorts and shmups yes, but mostly sidescrollers (your thread here is legendary), beltscrollers and I recently realized that I really like RNG, like lots of it, so roguelikes too. Nice to meet you all.

Thanks very much!

Yes exactly! Trevor McFur was an amazing... ly bad game, I always laugh when I think of the main characters as being different felines!

Yeah, I've still got my Jag, CD add-on and a load of games too. Tempest 2000 is one of my favourite games of all time... TxK is also awesome, and to a lesser extent T4K.
