We need spaceships as insane as this...


#1

Surely?

#2

Yes.


#3

I don’t know…

I think that would fly in Gratuitous Airship Battles where we tone down Sci-Fi and go full out Steam Punk with ships similar to Final Fantasy and Skies of Arcadia.


#4

Not in that style.

Just that insane.


#5

And we would need to toss in the XB-0, Arkbird, and Aigaion, too…


#6

I can definitely visualise ‘gratuitous steampunk battles’ in my head.


#7

I like the 'shop with it equipped with battleships guns and also taking on a Nazi UFO. The UFO also has battleship guns on it.

Now thats gratuitous! :smiley:


#8

oh god.
(runs and hides)


#9

In Soviet Russia, giant plane flies YOU!

I’m sorry, I just had to…

Haha, that plane looks like its out of those old 1942 games the vertical shooters with huge wing spans, dozens of weapons and so forth. Would make for a perfect fit for a new race :stuck_out_tongue:


#12

I loved those topscrolling shooting games. So gratuitous. :smiley:


#13

Heh, if you want gratuitous vertical shooters, play any game by CAVE or ZUN. Just be ready to die. A LOT.

You want examples? Here, have a couple:

CAVE: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sQZuidKexBQ
ZUN: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gu56ZSAkWPo

And here you thought fighter/frigate/cruiser laser spam was gratuitous…


#14

lolTouhou


#15

i have to remind you that the vast majority of people still possessing a brain in a solid state does not consider that a shooter game but a OMFGIMGONNADIE application,or rather a tool for instant insanity so you can avoid work on medical reasons

try THIS

if you want a proper shooter…
hey maybe its not vertical but sideways,but it still is more fun :smiley:

the video shows a “mow `em down for fun” type of a mission… not a hard one but they included it just for the fun factor :smiley:


#16

there could always be a race that got lost in time…

That thing looks like it would take years of training to learn how to take off…
It also looks like it would fall apart tif it went over 100 Mph.
