Posted under news, Thank you, Playthrough, Shmup Club, submissions, Donation Drive, NES Challenge, February

We interrupt your regularly scheduled program to bring you the March 2019 edition of the RF Generation's Site News! In this issue, we would like to update you on our site Donation Drive, announce our April 2019 community playthrough title, unveil the next game for our site shoot 'em up club, and of course, thank those members who sent in submissions to our site and registered approvals last month. Thanks for keeping it on Channel 3!     

REMEMBER: If you have any news about upcoming events or topics that you think the site needs to hear about, please PM singlebanana and put "RFG Site News" in the subject line.  Who knows, maybe your news will make our front page!



As you all know, the month of February was dedicated to our site donation drive. At our last update, we were at 71% ($1,068.00) of our goal of $1,500.00.  I am very excited to report that we not only met this goal, but exceeded it by almost $300!!!  The total amount donated during this drive was $1,794.00. Thank you so much for your support!

I want to express my personal gratitude to all of our site members. Though the drive is a good deal of work, I am always graced with some wonderful comments by our donors. Seeing the generous donations from members who may not be as active, but have been members of this site from its beginning really says a lot about how much it means to all of us. Also, I received a good number of donations from new members and from those are not active on our forums who added notes like, "I love the site," "Keep up the good work," or "Thank you for helping me track my collection."  It's really the pride and labor of love that fuels all of our staff members here and I want to give a special shout out to all of our staff for tirelessly working to make this site the best it can be.   

I want to give a BIG thanks to those who donated since the last update and pushed us over our goal:

Please stay tuned to our front page for the fund drive raffle. It's COMING SOON!

Join singlebanana and GrayGhost81, in April as they tackle two titles from independent, Danish developer, Playdead. Next month, we delve into two very aesthetically pleasing, puzzle platformer adventures with Limbo and Inside. Both games have received high critical acclaim from, as well as, polarized many critics due to their stories.  These titles should be a refreshing, action-packed jolt after a month of intense grinding!

Limbo and Inside are trial and error games; you can die unlimited times and respawn at your last checkpoint.  Both games have a very monochromatic palate and an art style best compared to German Expressionism, combined with eerie, atmospheric soundtracks. These games are dark and a bit violent, so be warned should you be playing them around young children....unless you are singlebanana. Both titles are available individually or as a set for most 7th and 8th generation consoles and for PC.

We hope that you are as excited about these picks as we are, so be sure to grab copies of the games before the month begins! Also, please join in our discussion of these games by signing up on our Limbo & Inside thread located HERE.



April 2019 brings a unique event for the RF Generation Shmup Club - the only shoot-em-up from developer and publisher Squaresoft! Known far more for their role-playing games, particularly the mammoth Final Fantasy series, Squaresoft ventured into a few new genres during the early-mid PlayStation era. In the fighting game genre, they released Ehrgeiz: God Bless the Ring, and they also published Brave Fencer Musashi, an action game. Despite still being an RPG, they also dipped their toe in the "survival horror" genre waters with the excellent Parasite Eve as well. However, one genre they hadn't explored up to that point was shooting games. They finally dove in, and ended up making one of the more highly lauded genre pieces on the system, the mighty Einhänder!

Strap into the cockpit of the Einhänder, an advanced spaceship, to take on the Earth regime, as you fight for the survival of the moon colony. After the events of the First Moon War, much of the Earth was left destroyed. Now, in the Second Moon War, you're sent to Earth in a single fighter craft to destroy as many defense resources as you can, so that residents of the Moon can get back to Earth to gather valuable resources. Do you have what it takes to fight off hordes of Earth drones and military fighters? Join the RF Generation Shmup Club in April, and test your mettle against Earth, in this horizontal scrolling, PlayStation shooting game classic.

Great job everyone!
After seeing we were only at 71% at the previous update, I was starting to get worried the site may not hit its goal this year.  But the members if this site stepped up like they always do and smashed the goal to pieces.  Fantastic job to everyone to keep the best game collecting site on the internet going for another year!
Super excited we had a last minute push to meet the goal! The trend continues lol.

Great game of the month picks coming up. I would join the Einhander playthrough, but I suck at the game haha. I've never made it past the second level. Fantastic game though, esp the music.
