I haven't seen anything posted here about these, so here we go.. If you haven't heard, two new shmups have been made available as downloads for the XBOX 360. The first was released last week and is called "Shooting Love 200X". It is a compilation of a variety of shooters by Triangle Service, one of them being Trizeal which saw a Dreamcast release in Japan over a decade ago.

It is "Under Defeat", an excellent top-down/vertically scrolling shmup where you control a helicopter that has the ability to swivel the aim and lock it into a specific position. It too was released on the Dreamcast years back and is one of the more expensive shooters on the system (running about $100 on the used market last I checked). This HD update to it was also released on the PS3 a couple of years back, but it was news to me to find it has hit the 360 as well.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RZf6xVDxIK0 Drunken Master Paul joins me again this week to discover our Favorite Sega Genesis Shoot 'Em Up game (shmup) on the system. This involves beer, multiple arcade sticks and a willingness to kill, destroy and blow stuff up real good. Hell, let's throw an a cappella Bon Jovi song in there for good measure! Oh yeah, and the "Seaman" comment is a running joke, as I am playing that game right now on the Dreamcast… and he makes fun of me. The Bastard.

Earlier today I uploaded a video talking about and ranking 19 SNES shooters (shmups) released in the United States. What are your favorites on the system? If you have played all of them, how would you rank them? Video: https://youtu.be/Fl9Y13XR3cM
