Anyways I think some people expressed interest in knowing which shmups for the Xbox360 are region free, so you can know if
Pretty much in general, all XBLA releases work on any console, and the only two region-free retail disc games are Mushihime-sama futari, and EspgaludaII Black Label (normal edition only), both of which are very excellent games. If there's just one you must get, I'd recommend mushi futari for its slew of many modes that both novices and experts of the genre can enjoy, and overall represents quite possibly Cave's finest work, and a very good modern bullet hell shmup in general. The music is fantastic, the scoring systems in all the modes are fun, and it also features Palm the shota, as well as the delicious no panties wearing Reco. There is a platinum edition that recently came out for it, so its pretty cheap to import it now (~$35). For you fortunate NEETs out there getting SSI money and whatnot, add this game to your list of figures!
