I'm jonesing for some new shooters to play, and I'm years removed from having an arcade setup of any kind so I'm limited to the 360/PS3.

Gimmie some recommendations so I can get back in the saddle.

US or JP 360? Assuming it's a US region:

Mushihimesama Futari 1.5 (and download "Hutari Black Laval")
ESP Galuda 2

Guwange and Radiant Silvergun are good XBLA marketplace choices.

Sine Mora, RSG and Guwange. All great STGs on the 360 download service. Get the NA Raidens and import Mushihimesama Futari-Platinum label goes for around 40 bones.

I'm w/ you 98% of the way, here. Only thing I'd change, is skip Sine Mora, & get Omega 5ive instead. Hudson & Natsume?

Serious Fun!

its been said before, butt guwange is pretty great.

i have enjoyed the hell out of 'voltron' which is a pretty nice twin stick shooter and good for a change of pace (right wataru?)

Bangai-o hd is also a great change of pace game.

As much as I have missed gaming...not having proper furniture for my babies has been the murph. They are sleeping like shit, and rammy all day due to it.

The move would've been jarring enough *if* all of their familiar things had arrived on time. As it is now, the transition couldn't have been further from smooth for them...and I'm enraged.

Thinking about getting my crack squad of NZ hackers on the job of 'fixing' NAVL's website. You know anyone that could help? ~_~

Back on topic: Yagami; what you like in a STG, m'man? Hori? Vert? Either or?

In addition to those 360 shooters, on the ps3 side there are a ton of good PS1 import shooters on PSN on the Hong Kong or Japanese stores. Setting up a foreign account is easy, and you can pick up a card from Play Asia. I've got Don Pachi, Do Don Pachi, Sonic Wings Special, Raiden, and MK2 (lol) for about $25 cash.

I find it Ironic that the American system has a slew of great shmups on it, and the availability of titles on the Japanese console are scant...
