There aren't any. You'll need to get a Pico.

Castle of Shikigami ll
Raiden lll
Gradius lll & lV
Some good ones on the Taito collections (Gekirindan, Gun Frontier, Raystorm)

The import shmups are much better than the localized ones.

I think Red Star is the only shmup on PS2.

I gave myself five tries tonight to come up with something good, and here's what I got on the fifth try:

pierrot - 4,579,310 - 5-9 (Boss) - Saturn

Thoughts? At some point we'll need a new title either way - may as well do it now?


So, I was thinking, what if we did our own STGT in November or December, or something. I know it would be on a vastly different scale, but it could be fun if the Shmups forum STGT doesn't happen.

My crazy idea was to shift the entire schedule up a month and then leave December for exclusively voting in 2014's schedule (including an alternate backup if no STGT next year) so we could have everything ready to go by the end of the year and so we wouldn't be still working out a schedule after Christmas. I'm not really up for another round of voting to determine a game to play in 2 days just because they couldn't get their act together over there, nor would I be terribly crazy about having our own.

I vote for this.

Great idea. We can do Homura this month and Raiden IV in October. Regardless of a shmups STGT, it isn't the worst thing to start our own mini-tournament. I personally don't think we need to take a month off for STGT anyways as all racket members aren't over there, plus sometimes the STGT game is no good so it would be nice to have something going on over here anyways.

While Homura is going on we can start a separate thread for our own (small) STGT where teams are formed and games voted on. We know numbers will be considerably smaller, so i'd suggest 3-person teams and the 2 highest scores submitted count for your team.

I'll start a thread - if we can get at least 5 teams of 3, then I say do it. If we can't get at least 15 people interested, well then, not meant to be...
