Yeah, I'll admit that I didn't participate nearly as much this year as I did before.

Ain't no thing but a Giga Wing...

This was my first taste of the "bullet hell" genre, and yes I got the chance to play this in an arcade first. Soon after that, it became the first shmup I got for the DC. I credit fed the heck out of that port. That being said, I'm well versed in this, more than Mars Matrix, maybe because the multiplier is a lot friendler, but not that reflect barrier! After warming up and getting a not so great score on Stage 2, I switched ships and got this -

ExedExes - 1,253,544,752,780 - Stage 4 - Stuck - MAME

I'll try to get this for Dreamcast. Not a fan of using emulation so if I can't get a DC copy I'm out this monh.

ARCADE

DocHauser - 2,915,148,887,270 - Stage 5 - Sinnosuke - Shmupmame 4.2

Not sure what my best ever score is in this. I made it slightly further than this run when I was playing it in an arcade in Kyoto earlier this year. Hopefully I can get even further during this month...
