RadarPlays - Sexy Parodius

The Parodius series is a thing of beauty--Konami mocking their very own Gradius franchise with a shmup that's equally difficult and ten times zanier. Sexy Parodius is arguably the best of the bizarre bunch, with tons of wacky characters, unthinkably strange boss battles, and level designs only Japanese game developers could devise. Lucas, Tom, and Ryan team up to shoot down a variety of strange baddies, including an anthropomorphic ear of corn and Medusa herself. It is, in a word, glorious.

Want to hang out with GamesRadar's editors while taking a look at retro games, new releases, and totally random experiences? RadarPlays is for you. Mondays we'll be checking out blasts from the past on RadarPlays Retro, Wednesdays we change things up to whatever we feel like playing with RadarPlays Shuffle, and Friday is packed with the strangest titles you’ve never (hopefully) heard of in RadarPlays Freaky. We'll also release RadarPlays for all the new releases, so be sure to check back!

    please, Please, PLEASE!!!! continue playing this game (and possibly it's squeals[fingers crossed]). this was one of my favorite games when i was younger. i'd spent hours playing it with friends trying to complete every mission. We really didn't understand alot of the references before but as silly as it may be it was still one of the most challenging games that i've ever played. it was a real trip and a blast watching you guys play this and enjoying it as much as i did when i first got my hands on it. hope to see more of this soon.

    I love these videos and would love to see longer ones. Might I also suggest the game SCP: Containment Breach to play one Friday.

    I wouldn't mind having extended freaky Fridays videos. They are just so good. It's like cake. You want a big piece not a little one. Nice video so coins get you special stuff huh. Eh could be worse you could be purposely shooting something's like in sensual shooter. I regret nothing.

    I guess you decided to go a bit light on the freaky this week. I mean, it's more silly than anything else. I guess it's better than listening to Tom Magrino wet himself.

    That another 10 min was from Sonic.exe. Also you guys are such pervets!!!!! XD

    Don't try and pretend Lucas, the reason you couldn't play 2 Players was because you were playing an emulated version of the game, not because you had "forgotten" to bring a controller :P Anyway, I was wondering Lucas, do you ever plan to play Chulip in here? I'm just curious because I saw a lot of screens and buzz about the game back when it came out, but I never actually saw it in action. And I think it DEFINITELY fits this segment XD

    Whatever do you mean?! ;D That'd be a good one to check out--not sure how visually interesting it would be to watch, but the premise is pretty wacky. Mayhaps I'll give it a PSN download!

    I've played the games before, but I didn't know Konami made them on purpose against Grodius. The series was rather strange but somehow followed a what you MAYBE call a "series", The main Octopus character you use in the games is suddenly the boss of this new group of saviors in Sexy Parodius. And for some reason, in the third game, you fight Giant Sized versions of the missle girls of the first 2 games in school girl outfits and then they're suddenly back in Sexy. I don't even know why I care to know this much but that's because I played them back then. Ill watch the video when my battery isn't dieing or when I get home
