Hi there. I must confess I don't play games that much these days, but when I do, it's usually Ikaruga.
I've been playing the game since forever; in fact, nailing the first Max Chain is the earliest memory I have.
If you'd like to get in touch with me to talk about the game, I can be reached on the shmups.com forum, where I go by Xer Xian for some reason.
I'm not regret
