News Shmuptacular is coming back


Staff member
I've decided to revive two of my "dead" sites from the past.. The one I'm working on now is Shmuptacular, which is a shoot'em up game (Gradius, Galaga, Raiden, etc) enthusiast site. I originally started this site thirteen years ago.. the year I got married actually. I had a lot of success with it and had a good time working on it. The reason I stopped it was due to a massive server hack at the ISP I was using. Many sites were hacked.. I didn't have it backed up, so I just chose to take it offline. The original site had files, image galleries, forums, chat, user blogs... this site is mainly just going to be a blog and forum format... nothing as involved as I had originally.

I finished implementing the forums and you can access those at, the blog is the next piece of the site I will be working on. But if you are a fan of classic side scrolling shoot'em up games I welcome you to pop over there and make an account and help us get the site off the ground.
