Re: off topic: Other games. I'm a pretty big fan of bullet hell shmups too. Mostly DoDonPachi (as anyone who has played will know from my avatar), Esp Ra.De., Guwange and Perfect Cherry Blosson (from Touhou). Dunno why I like the style of game so much, but I enjoy the challenging aspect of it. I'd post my record for PCB, but it's invalidated by the fact that I get considerable slowdown on the bosses after about the 4th level, so it makes it a lot easier.
