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!

This December and January, the RFG Playthrough guys will be taking a much needed vacation before rolling into the 8th season of the Playcast.  We're sorry for any inconvenience this might cause for those who enjoy our annual site competition.  We hope that all of you enjoy your holiday season and we will reconnect in January to announce our February playthrough title.

In the mid to late 1980's, Konami was on a hot streak, having found much success with arcade games such as Gradius, Contra, and other games. And their Famicom/NES conversions were equally lauded, often taking the original games and changing up the formula a bit to better suit the home market, often resulting in what some consider definitive versions of the games. One of the games they didn't take too many liberties with, however, was the arcade shooter Top Gunner. For those who are more familiar with the NES library, than lesser known Konami arcade games, you may know this game as Jackal. Released in the arcade in 1986, and followed up on the Famicom Disk System (as Akai Yousai: Final Commando) and NES in 1988 as Jackal, this is a Konami classic that might not be quite as well known as some of their other 80's output, but it's no less relevant.

You take command of a unit of elite soldiers, on a mission to rescue POWs behind enemy lines. You take the fight to hostile territory, with only your wits, and your heavily equipped military Jeep. As you rescue some POWs, they can help outfit you with better weaponry, to give you a better tactical advantage. But the fight won't be easy, as you'll encounter soldiers on foot, turrets and cannon emplacements, tanks, and other enemy forces, all vying for your destruction. Join the RF Generation Shmup Club as we play something a bit more shmup-adjacent for December. Whether you play the arcade original Top Gunner, the Famicom release Akai Yousai: Final Commando, or the NES release of Jackal, you're sure to have a good time!
