I recently started playing my SEGA Dreamcast, pulled out a few favorites.
Anyone out there have some good memories or rare shmups they would like to share?

WOW! iv played the Darius games before but never the arcade, that's epic!
Ever herd of Lords Of Thunder? it has this amazing cheesy 80s metal soundtrack and kinda reminds me of Ronin Warriors if it where a SHMUP. :)

Oh, so that's what a 'shmup' is. A sidescrolling thing.

I think I remember playing Lord of Thunder but I forget what it was like.

Sadly this was announced on April 1st.



The cabinet measures 19,290 x 1575 x 1885 mm and weights 4,080kg. Taito says that it's currently seeking a Guiness World Record for the screen width.

Forty-eight players can play Darius Burst Another Chronicle 48 together. Taito notes that, regardless of player, when your ship is destroyed, it will regenerate at the far left. The player in the far right seat will have to wait about a minute for his ship to arrive in his area of play.

That giant boss shown in the cabinet shot is "Unagi Fossil." It's meant to be 32 meters wide.

Its really unfortunate that arcades are dead here in the US, gameworks is about all we have and very few at that...
