Featured Game: The Embodiment of Scarlet Devil

A little odd, but it works well
Embodiment of Scarlet Devil
Year: 2002
Genre: Vertical Scrolling Shooter
Recommend: YES

If you were to sit me down at a PC a month ago and show me one of the Touhou games, I'd give up and walk away in not much time. After seeing a friend play the series often, though, I became fascinated with the Touhou series and the vertical shooter genre as a whole. There's something innately satisfying about massive amounts of bullets flying around on the screen and being able to dodge the lethal ones. Oh, and did I mention that Lunatic mode is @$#%&@#$!! impossible?!

What you'll need

You need a netbook...and Windows...and that's about it.

Want to prevent flickering on Cedar Trail netbooks? All you have to do is set Refresh Rate to 1/2 instead of 1/1 in the configuration utility. Viola!
