1812 Shmupfilture. Sure, it could be better, but somehow I think this is the only time I'll see Tchaikovsky mashed up with Ikaruga. @

Sorry, I'm just under contract to post anything involving shoot-em-up games.

I don't know if I'm proud or ashamed that I could identify nearly all of those from the brief clips shown.

Under Defeat, besides being FUCKING AWESOME, has some really great explosions. (:38 second mark, and again at 1:50)

This video made me giggle with glee and delight. (especially since it closed with Border Down and Defender.... :D)

If you're going to kill a TV, that's as fine a way as I can think of.

The video was great, too. Thanks.
