This is Episode 009 of Shoot the Core-cast! In this edition, MetalFRO and Addicted look at Zanac, the classic NES shooter that most of us played as kids. Does it hold up? What's good about it? Why is it so well loved? To help us answer these questions, we called upon Collectorcast members Duke.Togo and Crabmaster2000, to weigh in on the game. We hope you enjoy it!

Welcome to Episode 006 of Shoot the Core-cast! This time around, we take a good look at the HOT-B Sega Genesis classic, Steel Empire! We dive into the original game, and dissect the re-releases since then, talking about the changes, and getting into the game's steampunk world. MetalFRO and Addicted go into great detail about the game's history, talk strategy, share high scores from the month's participants, and discuss how this game has lived on since its initial release.

Ladies and gentlemen, the RF Generation Shmup Club now has its own official companion podcast! Shoot the Core-cast is your destination to hear all about the games we're playing each month in the RF Generation Shmup Club. Hosted by MetalFRO and Addicted, each episode will be a recap of the month's shooter game, with discussion about the game, commentary, shout-outs to forum member discussion, and highlighting scores and strategies. Couldn't join in during a month? Listen to the episode and see what you missed! Episodes 01 and 02 are now online, and you can listen to them here:

Come hear Addicted and I wax intellectual about R-Type, including its design concepts, HR Giger-inspired art, its many ports, ominous music, and its lasting impact on the genre. In our second episode, we discuss the mighty Gradius and its huge influence on horizontal shoot-em-ups, and the genre in general. We have plenty to say about these bona fide classics, so please, have a listen!

We're already listed on Google Podcasts, and will be submitting to other services in the coming weeks, so if you have a favorite service you use, stay tuned for more announcements about other platforms!

Until then, keep those lasers blasting!
