Just found the name of an old game that plagued me for *years*!!!

    Long ago, my parents divorced and, for a couple of years, I spent the weekends in my mom's small apartment just before she moved to the house I live in now.

    While living there, the neighbor's had a kid who was also my age (7). At my dad's house I had a Playstation, but at my mom's I had a Genesis with about fifty or sixty games (still have 'em all). The kid who I'm talking about was my friend for a short while before I told my mom to kick him out one weekend because I didn't like having to switch with him and let him play. I was a spoiled ---hole really.

    Well, now that the backstory's out, this kid would always bring this one game I didn't own. It was a space shrum and, I didn't like it, but he'd always want to play it whenever he came over. After my mom kicked him out that one time, he never came over again, and eventually we moved, but I always wondered what the heck the name of that game was. I used to know it, but I forgot. Anyway, the ASMB helped me out because while looking for something to post in the "post some funny anime/video game related material" thread, I went to YouTube this morning and posted the oft referenced opening sequence from Zero Wing. Then I started looking at videos of Zero Wing's gameplay and I said to myself, "Hey! That reminds me! I never found out what that one game was called from all those years ago!"

    Anyway, I went to Google typed in "Sega Genesis side scrolling space shoot 'em up" and looked down the list on this one page that has pictures of each game next to the game's name. I said to myself, "shrums never had a ton of games made for any given console, so I might be able to find it!"

    Sure enough, while going down the list, I saw a game called, "Gaiares" and it all clicked. I went right to YouTube and said, "Wow! That's it! That's really it!"

    K. That's all I had to say.

    Gaiares had the most awesome NA box art by the way.

    Yeah, I've gotten a little better at them myself but still no expert.

    I think people who are good at FPSs tend to be pretty good at shrums because aim is pretty important or else you find yourself dodging every frickin thing on the screen that comes flying at you.

    You'll have to call ViperSlayer to confirm that, as he is evidently our resident FPS pro.

    Hmmm... I could shoot him a PM I guess. But he goes by Demonology now. Something happened to his old name.

    He'll ask for a cash advance before giving any of us plebs gaming tips.

    A "cash advance"? Who does that? I'll just try to find them good ole FPS secrets out on my own for now. Probably won't find 'em out though.

    Needed to get the backstory in there. The moral of the story is: "Where there's a will, there's a way, and people who lived before the internet existed probably forgot a lot of things that they never rediscovered."
