Instead of me picking three or four games to choose from for February, I am going to open it up to public discussion. Post what you want to play. Quote posts that contain a game you want to play with a +1....whatever game gets the most “likes” is what we’re going to play. Anything goes as long as it’s a SHMUP so console and PC are cool too. What do you want to play. Midnight on February 1st we’ll call the game.

I like SOTM 'cause it gets me to play shmups I never really played before so I'm not sure I have much to suggest. Also not about to go back through the SOTM history books to see what's already been played, but my suggestions for games I like but haven't put time into:


Varth: Operation Thunderstorm
Raiden IV
In the Hunt
Parodius
Soldier Blade

Arcade - Carrier Airwing - sequel to U.N. Squadron / Area 88

+1 on Carrier Airwing

Raiden IV would be nice, because it's also available on GOG - easy to access.

As for variety and suggestions:
*) Sine Mora EX (PC/XBone/Switch)
*) Apidya (Amiga)

That’s on the TTX2 multi, right?

For those of us without the multi, what is the next best option? Someone said its on GOG? I see Raiden IV: OverKill for ten bucks. Is that the play?
