  1. A few days ago I was walking around a local thrift store hoping to find a gaming gem for cheap (I found MGS there for $3 2 weeks earlier.) I saw the usual stack of PS1 games with missing booklets and small pile of SNES sports games. I was about to leave when I looked down and saw it… an SNES game that wasn’t there in my earlier trips. I pick up the nice blue NES case it was in and look at the top of the label and read “UN Squadron,” I start looking for a price tag on it… $3.99! I know the SNES isn’t the shooter heaven that the TG-16, Genesis or Saturn are, but I heard a few good things about it and it’s Capcom so how could I go wrong?

    UN Squadron is a lot of fun. I really enjoy the Capcom art style and cheesy characters. Plus, it’s not often you see customizable upgrades in a shmup.
