Target approaching! Fantastic music and great friends! This week on the show we look at our favorite SHMUP games! This is a chance to listen to our favorite shooter games without all the explosions and gun fire! Rob plays music that covers his introduction into bullet hell games, and Pernell finds some classic chiptune jams!
When I think of shmups, I think of grazing bullets, exploding pop-corn, 1CC's, and the STG bible: The Full Extend of the Jam. But let's get into the music! We're joined by VGM rock-MASTER Chris Baines to share our favorite 2D shooter music! He shares his love of all things Gradius, and we get into how there's so many awesome jazz-licks in these games. Wait are you waiting for? ENEMY APPROACHING!
