Shmups aren't (usually) very newbie friendly, practice practice practice is an understatement lol its more like a religion

Ikaruga is still (in my opinion) one of the finest shmups ever created

That has to be the best goal I have ever seen!

I'm a day late, which is bad because the sale only lasts four days.  Deathsmiles is now available for iPhone4/iPhone3GS/iPod touch 3rd and 4th Generation/iPad/iPad 2 currently for $4.99 until Sunday, July 10, 2011.  There are a few differences between this version and the XBOX 360: an exclusive character, new music, new artwork, new modes, and no Sakura or multiplayer.  I totally forgot to mention the sale three months ago from April 9-17 on all Cave games.  In other news, Arcade Shooter: Ilvelo for the Wii has finally been cancelled, but Otomedius Excellent for XBOX 360 is coming either this month or next month.  The collector's edition will include an artbook, soundtrack, and a pillowcase.

It looks like Otomedius has been delayed again, this time until November 1, 2011.  I was hoping to have already played it by now.  In the same week as Otomedius Excellent in US, Europeans are getting Dodonpachi Resurrection for XBOX 360 on November 4, 2011 which will be region-free if you don't want to play the IOS version or if you rather play it on XBOX 360.  If you want another shmup on XBOX 360, there is also Radiant Silvergun on XBLA.  As far as IOS is concerned, Espgaluda II has been re-released as Smartphone Mode, Arcade Mode, and HD for iPad 2 owners, and they're all on sale until Sunday, October 16, 2011.  If I cared about iPad 2, I would have gotten it.  I already bought Espgaluda II when all Cave games went on sale in April, and it makes no sense to split Espgaluda II into two versions.  Plus, all Cave games had gone up in price a month after Deathsmiles was released on IOS, so I recommended waiting for another sale.
