Catching up … Gradius ReBirth is out

Sorry. I’ve been preoccupied with Resident Evil 5, so I’ve been delinquent. I’m throwing some day-old Wii news at you. Konami released Gradius ReBirth on WiiWare, and you can download it for 1000 Wii points. It’s rated E for Everyone. Old-school Nintendo Entertainment System gamers will rejoice, as Gradius was one of the more memorable side-to-side pure shooters ever. Ah, the days when I remember my older brother throwing cartridges at the wall whenever he died at a boss for the 10th time — games were harder back then.

Anyway, I got shots, and now, so do you: Enjoy. Remember, it’s retro homage stuff.
