Velocity 2X is great! I really enjoyed RIVE as well. 

What was your favorite from the Psikyo collections?

Ah I love Gunbarich! I've never played a game that managed to mix those genres together so well before. It's truly unique.
Sol Divide is brilliant. I also love Strikers 1945 II and Samurai Aces. Oh and Dragon Blaze and well I like them all but yea it just makes me wish that company hadn't been bought out and shut down.

I really like Dragon Blaze :) That dismount mechanic is so cool.



I'm a shmup fan so, far I only have 1 shmup playthrough in my youtube.



Cute and honest Sega Saturn fan, also noone should buy Sega grrrr, Sega for life.

I mean it depends where you'd draw the line on what consitutes a shmup I guess.

Had a lotta good times with the likes of Super R-Type, R-Type III, Gradius III and Pop'n Twinbee on SNES, Ikaruga on Dreamcast.

Loved Sin & Punishement Star Successor on Wii if that counts? Also Starfox SNES and 64 if those qualify.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

I think technically Starfox counts. I would not hold it against anyone who wants to count it. Some more hardcore people might scoff but I like Starfox. I was just playing some Zero Gunner 2 earlier today.

Well, Starfox SNES and 64 are both in my top 20 games of all time. The genre as a whole tends to be a bit too difficult for me, but I have certainly greatly enjoyed some entries in it.

I like shmups, I just wish I was better at them. If Star Fox counts then that is my favorite series in the genre because these games are beginner friendly. However, I also have Ikaruga and R-Type Dimensions EX on the Switch. I liked Sin & Punishment Star Successor on the Wii and I remember playing Axelay and both R-Type games as well as Phalanx on the SNES.

I can never get past Stage 4 in Ikaruga. Just reaching it is already tough!



For those who play Shmups on the Switch. Do you own a flip grip to play in TATE?

Ah yea it's such a clever mechanic. :)



I'm pretty sure it's spelled Trump, not Shump
