    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?
