Episode XXIX: Midtier Are People Too, The Shmup Skill Gap and Grind with KZ the Kusoplayer

A really fun episode with fellow Shmup Slam Co-Host, KZ the Kusoplayer. In this episode we talk about the struggles of being midtier players and the scene's tendency to only pay attention to top tier level play. We also talk about the grind, getting into scoring versus survival only, and other attitudes we've run up against. I'm super proud of how this episode turned out, so please check it out.

Episode XXVIII: The Shmup Evangelist, Hustling STG with Frenetic (the Homie)

Today the podcast is graced by Frenetic, a co-founder of STG Weekly, contributing member of the overall scene, shmup evangelist, and awesome host of many shmup-meetups over the years. We talk about the start of STG Weekly, his history with the genre, the Cali arcade scene, as well as some ideas for hustling shmups to a wider audience. We also discuss my idea for a shmup meetup for next year: Shmup Invasion 2020.

Episode XXVI: Wine, Cheese, and Hibachies; Stunfest 2019 with Plasmo

Today l get the chance to talk with the omega-level homie, Plasmo, about Stunfest 2019! This year was killer as always and we go over everything (at least that I could think of). Featured players this year were Maribel (playing lunatic Touhou Ten Desires), Kiwi (playing parallel Blue Revolver), and Gus (playing 1.5 and 1.01 Futari Ultra). All the runs are highly recommended viewings.

[EXTRA] Watched Evangelion for 1st Time, My Interpretation

I just finished watching the 26 episode Evangelion anime series for the first time. I loved it! I went into watching the show completely blind, I did not know anything about its story, plot, or themes. What I have recorded in this episode is my own raw interpretation of the series. I have not read reviews, read about the show, or listened to other people's ideas. I think this is a fun listen and am curious how it compares to how other people view the series.

Episode XXV: Emulation is Religion + Future of STG

||Unchained|| Rivals of Aether with Bumblebomb

This is the first "unchained" episode of the podcast (non-shmup related). This isn't going to be a super regular thing so no need for my shmup homies to get fired up. A new shmup episode is already in the works. On this episode I get to talk about an awesome indie platform-fighting game that I've dabbled with since September 2015, Rivals of Aether. My guest, Bumblebomb, is a passionate community manager and commentator for the game. We go all in on Rivals in this episode, from the mechanics, design, OST, to community history and future plans. I think this episode is a really fun listen and it is my hope that there might be some cross pollination between the communities of Rivals and shmups.
