Hello Fellow Gamers

I love SHMUPS... maybe not quite as much as some of you folks, but definitely more than the average gamer. After a few months/years of watching some members channels on Twitch and YouTube, I've decided to bite the glowing pink/blue bullet and join your club.

A very brief gaming bio: I've always believed that shooters (along with platformers, strategy, RPGs, fighters, and simulations including sports) are one of the fundamental pillars of gaming. Whenever I acquired a new system I liked to have one of each type before getting a 2nd. On Commodore it was Gradius, on Nintendo-Lifeforce, on SNES-Gradius 3, Genesis-Insector X (not my best pick :lol: ). Growing up my favorite "consoles" were the arcade (loved Street Fighter 2 and pinball far more than SHMUPS back then) and PC (DOS and Windows 95/98 for flight sims and strategy/war games). I took a long break from gaming and got back into it a few years ago, but I never completely quit.

What/How I Play: Now that I can enjoy all the arcade games I never had enough quarters to clear as a youth, SHMUPS have become my favorite type of game to play. I almost exclusively play using a Qanba Obsidian stick (of course modded :D ). I've been a fairly skilled gamer since my late teens, and as an adult I love the challenge of most SHMUPS.b I do not generally care for memorizers (with some exceptions) preferring games that are more about reflexes than preparation. Unlike many I love when there's a strong RNG element because I get a gambler's excitement knowing that any credit could be "the one" where all the random elements align and I clear/high score the game. My current favorites are the "Bat" trilogy (Garegga, Batrider, and Bakraid). While none of my scores are yet worth reporting, a 1 cc will happen if I keep playing regularly... I make no promises as to when. :)

Why I Joined: I've lurked your strategy board for a couple years now, and I can't wait to ask some questions of your membership. Not to be a kiss-ass, but I'm quite impressed with some of your accomplishments and would love to get some input on improving my play. I would eventually like to make some contributions of my own when I feel able to do so.

On Twitch I use the handle 1stworlddf.

Hi!

Another younger, but devoted shmup/shoot 'em up fan here. Just as much into learning and researching about the history of the genre as I am into playing the games. Hope to learn a lot more from all of you here on the forum!

Hello! I'm Flobeamer1922. Some of you may know me as that Donkey Kong guy, but I've recently been introduced to the world of shmups through my friend Pearl. Now, while I'm not the biggest shmup person in the world, there are quite a number of games in the genre I enjoy; I like my early 80s shmups like Galaxian and Galaga and Donkey Kong 3, I really dig Toaplan games, and I do dabble in danmakus every now and again. I'm terrible at most of these games, but (at the time of writing this) I do have one clear to my name in the form of a Zero Wing 1-ALL, and I do have other shmup goals I hope to accomplish at some point.

Hi forum folks,

Been a shmup fan since early 90s but only started that delicious g r i n d about 2 years ago. Currently working on a hi-score run of DOJWL (PS2 copy). My gaming habits are trending toward spending more time with fewer shmups instead of playing tourist all the time.

I'm also the webmaster of Video Game Den

Welcome!

Video Game Den is great, I'm always checking it out from time to time!
:)


Thank you! I'm so happy that you like the website :)
I can't believe that I've been working on Video Game Den for 15+ years! There are still soooo many games I would like to review and add to the site, but between my work and side projects, free time has been really scarce... blarf... but I do add information and goodies from time to time - for instance I just got a nice selection of Famicom flyers and other Shitajikis, I will scan them soon and add them to the website :)

Good to be here

Getting heavily back into shoot 'em ups, and really appreciate the small and dedicated community that exists for help with strategy. Located in the Mountain States of the US. Currently playing Ketsui, Battle Garegga, and Rolling Gunner, but haven't decided what to dedicate myself to.

Hi,
I am a casual arcade gamer, I own a "small" 29" CRT arcade cabinet (euro style) , and i love arcade hardware and it's history.
Also I am an electronic hobbyist, and i made some custom PCBs for superplayers.
my favourite games are mostly shmups, so this forum looks like the good place ;)

Hey, I'm really casual with games in general, mostly playing gacha, 4x or casual calm games for the most part, shumps aside.

Aside from games I'm into movies, series and comics of both western and eastern entertainment with my favorite genres being scifi and horror.

Hi,

I signed up in 2014, I was convinced that he had introduced me but it seems not ... (how rude)

My bad English has always pushed me back at the time of posting, and it is not very practical to always be with the translator ... it is an issue that I have pending :|

I have always been fascinated by shmups although I am not very good with them nor do I have enough time to play. I have been collecting boards and console games for years, and I have learned a lot with contributions from Fudoh and other forum members. I hope to return this knowledge someday and help other members of the forum with less experience.

Regards from Barcelona, Spain

Hi All, I’m completely addicted to Shmups. Bullet hell CAVE shooters are my absolute favorite! I’ve not really been playing long enough to have developed any real skill at the games but I still love to play them.

I was just lucky enough to pickup an authentic DoDonPachi DaiOuJou pcb which I’m playing on my arcade Supergun. I eventually plan to add a candy cab to my collection and of course more CAVE pcbs.
