I've known about the Parodius shmups for over ten years, but I've never tried one until today. The obligatory question to ask would be "what the hell was Konami smoking," but that wouldn't be fair to drugs. No substance known to man or beast could produce something so bizarre. It's one thing to do a clever parody of your own games, it's another to do one with evil bathtub ladies and barfing clowns. With a soundtrack that borrows heavily from classical music.

That not weird enough for you? Try this: http://youtube.com/watch?v=UmE4-bIMMQA&search=parodius. Four words: Steam-powered pirate cat.

Yes, there are weirder games, but the less I think about them the better.

kuso.

holy crap, those first two are weird. and so obviously from the same publisher.

I can see why you enjoy being a retrogamer with stuff like that floating around.

Now for the weirder games.

Did you play Sexy Parodius? I didn't find it all that sexy, but it was really funny nonetheless.

I'm not that big a fan of the stickguy. The neutered flying pig is my favorite.
