Cute, humorous, Japanese, hack n' slash, RPG..... all words that typically define a successful pick for a monthly playthrough over at RF Generation.  Rich (singlebanana) and Shawn (GrayGhost81) are pleased to announce November's playthough, Brave Fencer Musashi, originally released on the PS1. This 1998, action/adventure RPG offers real-time, sword-based combat with a cute and humorous slant. You play as Musashi, a young samurai who is summoned to a parallel world to defend Allucaneet Kingdom from the Thirstquencher Empire. With his swords, Fusion and Lumina, Musashi must search for the Five Scrolls, which enhance the powers of his swords, and face the Wizard of Darkness to save people of Allucaneet. Will you restore peace to Allucaneet Kingdom? And will this game scratch all of the Playcast itches that its initial attributes initially purport to?  Join us and find out!

Brave Fencer Musashi is available on the original, Sony Playstation. We are very excited about November's pick, so be sure to obtain your copy as soon as possible and join us.

Also, be sure to join our forum HERE to discuss the game with fellow site members.

In the 90's, as arcades were in a general decline, many games that originated in that setting began to move to home consoles, as a way to continue to proliferate. When you have a recognized property that sells well enough based on the name, it makes sense to continue that, right? While home consoles can't always match the power of the arcade hardware, they can offer a way to get that experience in front of a lot of people, and give developers a chance to change things up. Irem gave developer Tamtex that opportunity, when the venerable R-Type series moved from the smoky arcades to the living room, with the arrival of R-Type III: The Third Lightning on the Super Famicom and Super NES.

The dark forces of the BYDO Empire threaten humanity yet again, with more powerful weapons than ever. Over the past few years, they have crept close to Earth, building hidden bases for their fleets. The Earth Science Center had believed that all of the BYDO Empire was destroyed. Now they know that somewhere a BYDO mother ship carries the remnants of that foul civilization. Earth will be overthrown unless the latest R-series vessel, the R-90, can defeat BYDO's armies. Equipped with the mighty Round, Shadow, or Cyclone Forces of power, the R-90 can warp into different dimensions and meet the enemy ships and ground troops on an equal basis. As the Captain of the R-90, you must seek out the mysterious mother ship and destroy it to save humanity.

R-Type III initially saw release on the Super Famicom, and made its way to the west on the Super NES in 1993. A Game Boy Advance version followed 2004. Because it has long been a sought after and expensive game, Retro-Bit licensed the game for re-release (alongside its SNES counterpart Super R-Type), and released R-Type Returns in a single cartridge, which allows you to choose between the two games. Join the RF Generation Shmup Club in November 2021 as we take off and strike the evil Bydo empire in R-Type III!
