Bullet Heaven Episode 185 - Super Hydorah

ocomalito is a name that nobody with a PC shouldn't know. We took a look at the insanely good Garoudan a while back in our first and only "Quickshot" EX review, but now it's time to take a look at Hydorah... Super Hydorah, to be precise! As a juiced up version of the original, how does Super Hydorah stack up?

Bullet Heaven, Episode #180 - Bullet Soul Infinite Burst

n episode 83 and 170 of Bullet Heaven. we took a look at Bullet Soul: Tama Tamashii. It offered great, newbie-friendly bullet hell thrills and some good scoring mechanics... as well as a ton of DLC included in the Steam package in specific. The newest version of Bullet Soul, Bullet Soul: Infinite Burst, follows that specific release, once again on Steam... but how does it stack up?

Bullet Heaven, Episode 178 - Battle Garegga Revision 2016 (PS4)

n episode 4 of Bullet Heaven, we took a look at Battle Garegga on the Sega Saturn. But we've always felt that it was a little... lacking. With the release of Battle Garegga Revision 2016 on the Playstation 4 though, the time has never been better to get down to the nitty gritty and give Battle Garegga its proper due, now with new modes and features!

Bullet Heaven, Episode #177 - Lightening Force (GEN)

n series 1 of Bullet Heaven, we took a look at Thunder Spirits on the SNES and Thunder Force V: Perfect System on PSone. Both games tried to capture the magic of the Sega-hardware-based Thunder Force series with varying success; Thunder Force V was great, though considered by many to be inferior to the Saturn (though we disin't think so) and Thunder Spirits was skippable, in favor of Thunder Force III and AC (Also available on Sega Saturn in the Thunder Force Gold packs.)

 Well we're back to take a look at a REAL Thunder Force game! Uhh... Lightening Force. Also Known as Thunder Force IV literally everywhere else, whoe does this Genesis shmup stack up? Let's take a look!

Bullet Heaven, Episode #176 - Castle of Shikigami (PC)

e took a look at Castle of Shikigami 2 on the PS2 all the way back in episode 2 of Bullet heaven ages and ages ago. Turns out, its predecessor, Castle of Shikigami was, in fact also released - as Mobile Light Force 2, stripped of story complete with a bizarre, unrelated cover. Degica Games is back with a restored, localized version of this classic game... but how does it hold up in the transition to Steam?
