There are people out there (you know who you are) who will tell you NOT to play Ikaruga. They'll say stuff like, "It's too hard", or "It's really hard", or "Dear God in heaven is that game hard..."
Don't listen to those people. Listen to me. You can trust me; I'm from the internet.
Find a friend. Find Ikaruga. Play Ikaruga with that friend. Thank me later.
Also, tell those other people to man the fuck up...
