Posted under news, Thank you, Playthrough, Shmup Club, submissions, September, 2020

We interrupt your regularly scheduled helping with your kids schoolwork to bring you the September 2020 edition of RF Generation's Site News! In this issue, we announce our spooky October Community Playthrough game, reveal our shoot 'em up club title, 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 and please continue to keep you and your loved ones SAFE!     

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!



If your 2020 hasn't been quite scary enough, please join Rich (singlebanana) and Shawn (GrayGhost81) as they play through the second of three games in the Fatal Frame series, Fatal Frame II: Crimson Butterfly.  Released during the 6th Generation for both the PlayStation 2 and original XBox (as a Director's Cut), Fatal Frame II follows twin sisters Mio and Mayu Amakura as they happen upon a haunted village where paranormal entities threaten to use them as a sacrifice. As in the first game, instead of weapons, players must use their Camera Obscura to photograph these evil spirits in order to exorcise them. This third-person, survival horror entry, both sisters may take damage, but if even one of them takes too much, it's GAME OVER.  How will a game without "weaponry" fare among other titles from the survival horror genre?  And will the sisters be able to escape the now confirmed urban legend  that is the Minakami Village?   We hope you're feeling photogenic!

If you're playing Fatal Frame II along with us in October, be sure to join our forum HERE and chat with us about the game.



In 1987, Taito released Darius in the arcades, and pioneered the shooting game genre's first multi-screen game, setting up a horizontally scrolling shooter that spanned three arcade monitors. Two years later, the sequel, Darius II slimmed down the configuration somewhat, employing only two monitors. These games not only included multiple monitors, but were also very recognizable due to their excellent soundtracks, vibrant graphics, and the iconic aquatic theme of the bosses in the game. They also introduced the idea of branching paths to the shooter landscape, giving the games more replayability, and some degree of variable difficulty. In 1991, Taito shifted the focus from the arcade to the home console, with the release of Darius Twin in 1991, on Nintendo's Super Famicom. Coming just at the end of the launch window for North American consumers, it was an obvious choice for early adopters of the Super Nintendo who were still craving arcade action at home.

A thousand years ago, legendary pilots Proco and Tiat repelled the Belser forces from the planet Darius, bringing peace to their world. In the centuries since, their descendants colonized other planets in the galaxy, including the resource-rich world of Orga. They established a galactic federation, based on this planet, that would govern peaceful colonies across the galaxy. However, the Belser forces decided to expand their empire, and once again set out to conquer the galaxy. The Federation has enlisted its two best pilots to meet the Belser threat head on. Jump in the cockpit of your Silver Hawk, and join the RF Generation Shmup Club as we blast off in October 2020, and play Darius Twin!
