  1. Nice epic list there. I have to say, although i'm chasing every shmup for every system. I do often wonder if I should write myself 'a must buy' list first and go from there. I think i have about 160-170 shmups now and i probably havent even played most of them.

  2. That's why you need to get playing those games and get some review videos up for us to see mate!! :D I have got a shorter list of games I'm actively seeking at the moment - most of the games revolve around the 360 and the Saturn, no surprise there I'm sure.

  3. Hey Geoff! Your list is epic! I could provide you with Thunderforce V (SAT) but I'm not sure I can part with it yet :P

  4. @harlequ1n Ha ha mate, it's one of those games that's way on down my list because I've got the standard release, awesome game though isn't it? The list is a bit daunting but I've already checked a few off!!
