NGI departs for space this week with a special dedicated to the legendary Gradius series! Nemesis, Salamader, Life Force: Whatever you call it, they’re some of the best sidescrolling shoot-em-ups ever made, so it’s only fair that some great remixes by CarboHydroM, SnappleMan, bLiNd, Scaredsim, Benjamin Briggs, and more complement them!
