Euroshmups pt.4/SNFU review SLASH MY FACE OFF WITH A RUSTY RAKE!
In 1995 Canadian punk rock legends SNFU released their 5th studio album titled "The One Voted Most Likely to Succeed" it's opening track "Rusty Rake" describes my current predicament quite well.

To quote lyricist Mr. Chi Pig;

Birds eat worms, and pigs eat turd. If ever I say a discouraging word, slash my face off with a rusty rake, it will be something that I deserve.
It's not like I live on the street, it's not that I live in a warzone, it's not like I can't afford to eat, it's not like I don't have a home.

That's right I've reached part 4 of my expose on Euroshmups. Although it has been a gauntlet of torture so far, if you can believe it, I've hit a tipping point and now have nothing left to complain about. Well almost.

Click spoilers for Sky Force Reloaded review.


I'm cheating at this point, because from here on out I'm not reviewing any Euroshmups, rather shmups developed in Europe that happen to be good. I think in these dark times it's important to highlight a very important message to prospective European indie shmup designers... you don't have to make a game that sucks! It isn't destined to fail if you have the right influences and inspiration. Just don't fuck it up by doing anything stupid basically.

I'm begging you. The less I have to complain about the better. I don't need to develop high blood pressure from playing anymore shitty games. Thanks in advance.

I commented and my comment got deleted with the comment "this comment is trash", and got forum banned. They're sure afraid of contrary opinions.
