Jikkyou Oshaberi Parodius: Forever With Me (実況おしゃべりパロディウス ～フォーエバー・ウィズ・ミー～, roughly translated as "Chatting Parodius Live") is the fourth game in the Parodius series by Konami. Like it's predecessors it pokes fun at other Konami franchises, especially the shoot-'em-up franchise Gradius.
Jikkyou Oshaberi Parodius is an odd entry to the series and was released solely in Japan. Whereas gameplay is mostly similar to the previous titles (two of which can be found in Parodius for the Saturn and the final in Konami Antiques MSX Collection Ultra Pack), every aspect of the game has a running commentary, from the menus to the game itself. This commentary is in Japanese and has never been translated, which, along with the numerous Japanese references, may explain why the game was never brought to the west.
The direct sequel to Jikkyou Oshaberi Parodius is Sexy Parodius, also not released outside of Japan.
The game offers a selection of new characters, some of which replace those found in the previous title, Gokujou Parodius!. The Saturn version of the game (along with its PlayStation counterpart) introduces several new levels not found in the original SNES release and tweaks many bosses and graphics. It also benefits from higher quality sound and simultaneous 2-player action without as much slowdown.
