Episode 12: Shmups with Justin Parker


For this episode, we sat down with Justin Parker, aficionado of Shoot ’em Up games or “Shmups”.  Justin knows a lot about Shmups and he’ll be hosting a panel this weekend on Shmups at RamenCon, a local anime convention.  We talk about his history with Shmups and the history of the genre in general, plus we seemed to have tried to set a show record for how many times we can say the C word in a single episode.  No really, it’s in there a lot, but we hope it’s not too offensive.  Sammy got in on it, too, so hopefully the female imprimatur helps to take some of the sting out of it.
