    Shoot the Core-cast Episode 033 - Demonizer (March 2021)

    In Episode 033, Addicted and MetalFRO dig into a relatively new indie shooting game, with a decidedly old school look, feel, and sound. Demonizer brings a 16-bit, early 90's arcade aesthetic to the table, but does it bring the fun? Listen to our thoughts, as we talk about the game.

    Shoot the Core-cast Episode 032 - Under Defeat (February 2021)

    In Episode 032, Addicted and MetalFRO dive into discussion about a shmup celebrating its 15th anniversary, Under Defeat! Developed by G.rev, and published by Sega in arcades, then later for the Dreamcast, this game puts a fresh spin on an old formula, and shows that the genre's roots aren't dead yet.

Jamestown+ was developed by Final Form Games, and is the full realization of the original release from 2011, with extra content and tweaks. Does it warrant your time this holiday season? Hopefully, we can shed some light on that for you!

    Shoot the Core-cast Episode 028 - Darius Twin (October 2020)

    Shoot the Core-cast Episode 028 - Darius Twin (October 2020)

    In Episode 028, MetalFRO and Addicted tackle the first console-exclusive entry in the Darius series! Taito brought the aquatic-themed series home after 2 entries in the arcade, and brought a 2-player experience to the SNES, when most shmups of the time were still single-player experiences. Is this game still worth playing in 2020?

Just..... so pleased!!

There are officially two podcasts that are in English that continue to entertain and meet my never ending demand to satisfy my hunger for shmups! Thank you guys so much for putting the time into presenting a top notch podcast.

Awesome gamers.

I really enjoy this show. I always loved shooters, shoot em ups or schmups. My problem is I’m not the best at them. I love listening to their strategies that they have for each game of the month. They have great personalities with great gaming skills.
