  • Do we need another Summer Shmup-off?

    All has gone very quiet since the conclusion of the last MGL. Where has everyone been hiding?

    The shmup-off a couple of years ago seemed pretty successful, should we have one up for the holiday period this year to keep the competitive and fun spirit alive?
    Nothing serious, just a bit of button mashing and avoiding countless bullets

    Thoughts?

    I have no idea what a shump off is, but if it involves button mashing then count me in.

    november / december is the busiest time at work for me being in a retail warehouse so i need something to distract me.

        I don't know what it is, but I think I need a good shumping off.

          We should do something as it's pretty quiet, but not suited to a full MGL round. Shmup probably suits the carefree summer days better but I've always fancied an "Amazing Mazes" mini comp.

          We could do;
          - 3 concurrent game
          - duration 1 month of play
          - games selected by public aa poll, one vote per contestant - edit: three votes per contestant would be better
          - the ballot paper assembled by a mystery maze aficionado
          - say approx 10 games to select from - need a relatively low number so that voting works and we don't get one vote for everything!

          Any interest?

            I'm on holidays, so I would sign up for this, despite never entering an MGL before.

            I love SHMUPS

              I was thinking something similar to this: http://www.aussiearcade.com/showthre...The-Shmups-Off!

              I'm crap at organising these things so I threw the idea out there in hopes someone would run with it

              I like the idea of 3 games over a month to 6 week period

                  I'll have a few games of whatever comes up - but I totally suck a shmups.

                  How about a comp where we play driving games - preferably ones where your car is capable of jumping in the air? It would be cool also if the comp featured driving and jumping car games where you got a bonus for not killing any cars during a level/pattern.

                    Doesn't have to be shoot em ups. I like the idea of maze games

                    Anyone want to volunteer to organize this?

                      Any sort of theme would be good - we did the Puck-Off a couple of years back which was pretty cool. A driving/racing/motorcycle one was suggested at some stage, but so many of the great car games don't play well with a keyboard or controller - they really need dedicated wheels.

                      I'll volunteer to run it, but there is zero chance of me starting it until after Christmas.

                        I reckon a SHMUP off is the way to go, as you say, anyone with a standard cab or a keyboard and MAME can play.

                        Plus, SHMUPS are the greatest games ever made
