Kirby was my trademark fighter in that game. One of my best friend's fighter was Pikachu, and she was really good at reigning thunderbolts upon me as I crossed platforms above. :lol:

24. Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons
25. Shining Force II (GEN)
26. Rayman Legends (WIIU)
27. Gorf (ARCADE)

After a little practice, I was able to and loop Gorf with a single ship. (I destroyed the "Flag Ship" over breakfast before hibernating my PSP, and I will be curious to see how far I make it with a single credit.)

Gorf is a classic arcade shmup that knocks off both Space Invaders and Galaxian pretty hard. (The second level is even titled "Galaxians".) Your ship also looks just like the Starship Enterprise...so...the game has a lot of IP issues and has never received an "arcade perfect" home port. It is nonetheless a really fun game, and it improves upon both Space Invaders and Galaxian in several respects. First, the game allows you to move your ship on both the x-axis and y-axis, like a traditional 2D shmup; so, dodging is much more dynamic than in other shmups of its era. The game also features some sprite scaling that would later be implemented in Konami's Gyruss. Finally - and perhaps most importantly - the game features five varied levels and a rudimentary "boss" - the Flag Ship. (You have to shoot the core!) The effects of these design and gameplay innovations are apparent in modern shmups, and this game is critical to anyone who wants to understand the development of the genre.

MAFIA starts out with scene of a cigarette being thrown, yes? If so, I need to replay that asap.

I beat MAFIA back in 2007 on PC. That game gets to be extremely hard at times and has wonky driving physics. It had an above average story though, and really impressive graphics for its time. It was a love hate thing for me.
PLAY KING'S FIELD.

I loved my characters in Saint's Row. Nothing beat Drag Queen Katy Perry wannabe, wearing nothing but a big deedely-bob and knee high boots. Lots of Cellulite and tattoos as well. Best character ever!

I approve.

Now try Phoenix and Pleiads when you have a chance (you most certainly own the compilations they appear on).

I'd be more willing to vote for her if she also sprayed opposing world leaders with feces from septic trucks.
