SEPTEMBER 2020 COMMUNITY PLAYTHROUGH


In September, Rich (singlebanana) and Shawn (GrayGhost81) kick it back to the XBox 360 to play one of its blockbuster titles and a console exclusive as they host a playthrough of Gears of War.  This third-person, cover shooter wasn't the first, but was certainly one of the most groundbreaking of the genre. In Gears, you play as Marcus Fenix, a reinstated military officer and member of the COG (The Coalition of Ordered Governments), a political and militant force raised to save humanity from the Locust, a genocidal, subterranean enemy. You and your war-torn comrades known as the Delta Squad, must embark on a desperate, last-ditch effort to end the war and save the remaining human inhabitants of Sera. Do you have what it takes to succeed and save your planet, or will you succumb to the terror of the Locust Horde?  Let's find out!

If you're playing Gears of War along with us in September, be sure to join our forum HERE and chat with us about the game.

SEPTEMBER 2020 SHMUP PLAYTHROUGH


In 1999, Japanese indie developer Siter Skain released the 1st of 3 games, loosely connected in a trilogy, and bound by a storyline revolving around the ALLTYNEX OS, a dangerous A.I. created by mankind that has laid dormant for many years. However, it now threatens to wipe out humanity. It's up to you, piloting the ship KAMUI, to attack and destroy the ALLTYNEX OS, and prevent it from destroying civilization.

Despite being the 3rd and final game in the story canon of the ALLTYNEX TRILOGY of games, Kamui  was released first, and draws heavy inspiration from Taito's RayForce. Not only does it resemble Taito's double-layer shooting game, but it uses it's primary mechanic as a major driving element. Join the RF Generation Shmup Club in September 2020, as we dive into PC shmup Kamui! Use your vulcan cannon, lightning weapon, and super beam to take out enemies, and rid the galaxy once and for all, of the ALLTYNEX OS, so humanity can finally have some peace.
