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.
