Does anyone know of any PS2 shoot-em-up games in the style of classics like R-Type, ie: 2D scrolling, loads of power-ups, huuuuuugggggeeee end of level bosses etc.

Ideally something futuristic and vaguely Japanesey in style.

That's a kinda dead genre, isn't it?

Really? I'm sure it's pretty popular in some kind of small way.

Another question: Does anyone know why it's so difficult to buy RES these days?

if you want shoot em ups the best bet is MAME

although ironically Ikaruga has just been released for gamecube which is allegedly amazing
