That's right, I now have an XBox 360! I've got the Splinter Cell Conviction bundle and guess what, the console works just fine BUT, the game included in the bundle: Splinter Cell Conviction, didn't work. The game disc couldn't be read. Yup! : P So I had to exchange the game with another one. Isn't this a funny story  : P
I also got Alan Wake and WarTech but more importantly, Mushihime-Sama Futari! ( en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mushihim… ) (Mushihime-Sama means "Insect Princess")

For those who don't know, Mushihime-Sama is a bullet-hell shooter developed by a company called Cave.
This is the kind of gameplay you can expect from such a game: www.youtube.com/watch?v=nscP9Q… www.youtube.com/watch?v=mg2YcV…

(NOTE: Those videos are from the most extreme difficulty modes. Here's what Normal mode looks like: www.youtube.com/watch?v=pDeA71… )

I love 2D arcade shooters, and even though I'm not the best shooter player, I love this bullet hell sub-genre. It's just so hardcore.  ( :  Plus, Cave games have such awesome sprites and 2D art ( imgsrc.baidu.com/forum/pic/ite… ) + great music. Here is one of my favorite tracks from Futari: www.youtube.com/watch?v=CbPp5W…

So I finally got the game on XBox 360. It's an import game but Cave made it region-free to see how much it would sell in other territories. This of course makes me super happy! ( :

The game is awesome. With much better graphics than the PS2 prequel (Simply called Mushihime-Sama) and it includes a variety of modes. Even downloadable content (Called "Black Label") with a new difficulty level and extra end boss.

On June 29 also comes DeathSmiles to the US XBox 360. It's another more recent Cave franchise so, I guess all of those people who imported Mushihime-Sama Futari have actually managed to bring DeathSmiles to the US! I'm so getting that game!  ( :

So, if you happen to enjoy arcade shooters, check out this game. It may look intimidating but in the long run, it feels great when you've managed to dodge a boss' insane attack pattern. Plus, if enough people get the games, Cave might actually release more of them over here. It would be nice to see Espgaluda remade too. The PS2 version is SUPER expansive. : P

Again, Mushihime-Sama Futari is region-free, so it plays on an US XBox 360 no problem. Some of the text is in japanese but there isn't much to reach + all the essentials like the menus are in english. Check it out. It's epic. ^_^

(Oh and also, check out Soldner X2: Final Prototype and Gundemonium Recollection on the PS3. (Soldner X2 is much better than the first one in my opinion)

Yay for 2D shooters!  ( :

It doesn't seem they will be coming to the PS3 anytime soon : P
The games are not as expensive as some of the collectors edition of some games.
ESPGaluda II is around 70$ on Play-Asia. You could say it's expensive for such a simple/short game but I prefer a short game I'll replay a lot than long and boring games...^_^
Maybe I'll do a Let's Play Mushihime-Sama Futari... I don't know. I'll need to take a look at how to make HD movies on YT. : P
