Of all the Sega franchises, I really miss Panzer Dragoon the most. The SHMUP genre has a plethora of classics to choose from, leaving many of the names off this month was not an easy decision. Titles like Arrow Flash, Zaxxon, Thunderforce, and M.U.S.H.A. will certainly get their time. But I can't think of a better game to wrap up this month with…Continue

What would a month focusing on SHMUPs would be if I didn't speak of the origins of the genre, some of the grandfathers.
