>wut an STG
STGs is another term for shoot 'em up/shmup (though typically used for Japanese made ones), all of which kick ass.
No, though we came close. STGs have been kept alive in no small part by doujins, which has led to such awesome games as Crimzon Clover, Blue Wish, Hellsinker, and Blue Revolver, and the players who have been documenting, replaying, and scoring since the early days.
Blue Wish Resurrection is awesome and free:
Sure. Just try out Dodonpachi at some point.
What are you playing?
What are you replaying?
What are you scoring?
How's that highscore going?
How's that survival run going?
Horzy or verzy? (Verzy is the correct answer.)
What's your favourite ship?
What soundtrack has the highest bop ratio? (It's SaiDaiOuJou)
Why was CAVE so good?
Are you excited for the original M2 STG that's in development?
Listen to the ESP Ra.De. Ψ remix soundtrack of that port if you haven't yet!
