How can an entire game be considered a meme

Could be because of its severely over-hyped/"sacred cow" status among more casual/non-shmup players. Comparing literally every shmup (and sometimes non-shmup games) to Ikaruga is/was a classic Gaming Journalist move (as was Sine Mora for about a week and a half). You could say that Ikaruga is the Dark Souls of shmups, even. :oops:

I guess Radiant Silvergun could probably be considered something of a meme as well, given how infamously-gouged the prices for the Saturn port is. Speaking of which, was it Sonic Wings 3 for AES that had that shitstorm about it? But I guess that's more of a collector meme than a shmup meme.

RSG is more like Dracula X (PCE) - it was never actually that pricey or rare, even now, so much as it's always been lauded as an import killer app.

These days both are downright reasonable compared to the fuckery going on with other titles/platforms. RIP Super Famicom halcyon days. 3; AES is a fucking horror show of comedy prices and, even worse, entrenched counterfeiting. I wonder when the latter will really bite down on the relatively "mainstream" consoles... MD and its snapcases in particular.

Slightly different situation - Aero Fighters 3 AES was an outright fabrication made up by some counterfeiting cunt named DavidG, and sold for a cut to the English-speaking AES community by brazen thief/TOTALLY INNOCENT PATSY TonK (pick a story - total shitshow either way).

Five or so copies iirc, sold for thousands apiece. Much hilarity ensued at the Neo Geo.com forums when DavidG's swiss cheese-esque story came out. "MY UNCLE WORKED FOR SNK DOODS, I FOUND DEEZE RARE CANCELLED GAMES IN HIS GARDEN SHED" about covers it. :wink:

Not to be confused with the official, uncontroversial Japanese AES release of Sonic Wings 3.

Hem, up to about the 2007~ish turn console games in the 150~ were still considered damn expensive!

Ah shit, remembering that period and all the missed opportunities to complete my collection still pisses me off (a bit)

A classic shitpost, but nevertheless exquisite. Almost as classic as the good ol' "Ikaruga isn't even a shmup".

We're in the ShMeme thread and you're expecting me to not shitpost?

It's like telling me not to crap in the toilet.

How about something actually on topic.
Didn't Blazing Star create the fail meme or something

Technically all the Ikaruga discussion in this topic is off-topic since it hardly qualifies as a shmup anyway.

Ikaruga is more like a puzzle game.

We can all sleep soundly knowing this thread completed itself on page 2.

One could say Ikaruga is a very polarizing game, heh...

I'd also like to point out that Radiant Silvergun is not a very good shmup.

I don't know why it has ever been in a top 10 shmup list, everyone knows that Mushihimesama is a better shmup.

Harder than Mushihimesama Ultra Mode. I noticed Jaimers91 typed that in Undertale All Bosses Compilation during the battle of Mettaton EX with that pop quiz segment.

touhou is harder.
