I like it ^^ I have the Gradius Collection on my psp and it`s one of my favorite stages along with the volcano stage.

T_T suprisingly, a lot of people..
you won't believe how many folks just can't put their finger on what this is, and one person thought that it was "some kind of weird abstract art" XD

VERY well done! The detail on the Vic Viper is great and all the moais from different directions. Nice!

Gradius (especially the third one), is one of the few shooters that really frustrated the heck outa me. To battle as hard as one does, to fight a final boss the shoots marshmellows, then blows itself up without you pressing a trigger. "WTF?" came to mind quite quickly. A nice gallery you have, I especially like your "Philasoma" Image aswell.

oh gawd, thats better than i can say.. i finally got GIII (as part of the PS2 g3/4 pack) and g3 spanked me stupid. I really wish i had more time to play it beyond the 3rd stage, and my own PS2 so i could play it period (i have to bum my bf's PS)

and thanks. I don;t know if you ever got to play Philosoma (it was a 2st generation PS1 game), but it was pretty dang good, it told the storyline with a series of transisitonal cimematics that took you from one view to another (it had areas where the view was from overhead, horizontal, underhead, pseudo 1st person (like space harrier), and isometric) the ship is one of my all time favorite designs :)

Yaa, i have played Philosoma. I did enjoy it, though it was just a little too dark for me at the time (i was heavy into Panzer Dragoon on saturn back then and still Raiden DX at the arcades). So while i enjoyed it, i don't think from memory i got heavily into it. I did remember thinking it was really different from anything i had played up till then, though probably a little short. Wouldn't mind getting back into it though. My favourite all time shmup on the PS1 was "G-Darius". i loved all aspects from the graphics to the music to the gameplay. It was marvelous ;D.

Cool well have a good fevereon

Ok ok....what exactly is this shmup stuff? I've been trying to figure that out for a while...and didn't want to seem slow and ask. Heh...cuz I was looking at your stuff on your personal site and saw a lot about that. :giggle: I'm so slooow.

Oh,and this wall paper is nice. I think using the airbrush it balance. =3
