I was mostly ramblin' about the comic and Gundam video games in general BUT when I finish the third Blue Destiny game let's do a podcast on all three!

Hi! Thanks for commenting! I'm glad you enjoyed the podcast. The closest thing I can think of to a Gundam game in that vein is the Famicom game, Z Gundam: Hot Scramble. It's super old, though. Note that it includes booth first primitive person shooter sections and Thexder-ish shooter parts. You might enjoy the arcade game Gundam: Final Shooting, though, which is along the lines of like Steel Gunner or if you need a more American example, Terminator 2 The Arcade Game:

I haven't played any of the more recent arcade/PS3 games like the Extreme Vs. stuff, but I'm assuming it's built on the foundation of Fed vs. Zeon?

There's also some

There's also some side-scrolling shooters for Sega Saturn covering both original Gundam and Zeta. They're very similar to the Macross: DYRL game on Saturn (and PS1).

The current Gundam Vs. games

The current Gundam Vs. games are technically part of the same family as Federation Vs. Zeon, but they don't play anything alike (and haven't for a quite a while). They're much closer to fighting games and a lot quicker moving than the much more straight forward original. Man...I really want an HD version of Federation Vs. Zeon DX on modern consoles...

Not all Cave games are

Not all Cave games are sugar-pop saccharine. Have you played Cave's Ketsui? It's probably one of the greatest SHMUPS ever made and not drop of "sugar-pop saccharine" in it.

Also check out the YouTube channel named "shooting games weekly". It's a visual podcast format channel all about arcade style SHMUPS....arcade style, is because there are two distinct philosophies governing SHMUP video game design. Design for the arcade OR for the computer/console (these are typically dismissed as EUROSHMUP). Both philosophies have their uses and fans. But I just want to warn you that "shooting games weekly" isn't going to cover popular games like Tyrian or Jets'n'Guns favorably.

Also there was a Tekkaman Blade game for the Japanese SNES. It's a 2D side scrolling shooter like game but the boss fights are like one on one fighting games.
