Ikaruga – the quite brilliant yet teeth-gnashingly brutal shooter from Treasure – has appeared on Steam Greenlight. You can vote it up or down now.

Back in the day this was seen as something of leverage in high school. “What? You HAVEN’T played Ikaruga on Dreamcast? GTFO.” Yeah, we were fanboy dicks back then. Memories.
