The History of Shooting Games

Posted in Game News, Random Shit with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 20, 2010 by Mat$kat

Over the next few weeks, I’ll be devoting a series of posts to some of the biggest, most influential names in shooting games. From the commerical studios like Cave, Raizing, and Toaplan to the underground “doujun” developers like Siter Skain, Kenta Cho, Shanghai Alice (aka ZUN), and Platine Dispositif – we’ll try and cover both ends of the spectrum.

To whet your appetites, and to give a little history lesson, I’ve included below a wonderfully made series of videos I found on YouTube. This three part series covers the history of the shooting genre – there is a TON of good information included here and it gives everyone from hardcore players to casual readers of my blog an educated perspective on THIS author’s favorite gaming niche.

So without further ado – I’d like to present the three part documentary “The History of Shooting” masterfully created by GameOne Documentaire.

Enjoy!

I have been waiting since Feb. 25th for Cave’s newest and last region free shooting game, Espgaluda II. Finally today it arrived. I was beginning to get nervous. I ordered it from Play-Asia, and past experiences have been positive. Last order tool 10 days from Hong Kong to Saint Louis, Missouri.

Suffice it to say, I’m super excited to play, I’m gonna be up all damn night.

I’ll post a review as soon as I get through a few of the modes.

CAVE SHOOTING!
