Blue Skies Can Be Yours for 20 Quarters

Just in case anyone is interested, After Burner Climax is 1/2 off this week. I think that would make the price 5.00 USD.
Unfortunately, I already bought it at full price.

Here's the link:

Is the sheer awesomeness of Sonic running a loop inside a giant glazed doughnut with sprinkles what makes the second link a "hell yeah," or am I missing something?

Re: Super Sonic Galaxy

I was just listening to some music from Sonic 3D Blast on YouTube... Forgive me for being so ignorant, but exactly how much SA music was taken from Sonic 3DB? Wow.

Re: Blue Irises!

I guess the redesign and cartoon are meant to make Pac-Man appeal to a younger audience, but, how popular was the old cartoon, exactly? I'm guessing not very. And that was much closer to the height of Pac-Man's popularity than this.

Re: There Can Be Only One

My plan is similar. I recently filled out my PS2 collection for the purpose of eventual emulation on PC. I guess holding onto your games then emulating is the most practical way to play all the games you want.

Re: Confirmed: XBL and PSN get Dreamcast games

SA and Crazy Taxi are pretty tired, I guess, but I hope they port a bunch of DC classics. Roughly 40% of my collection is just a rebuild of my DC collection (for other systems).

There Can Be Only One

Personally, I'm for the idea of there being only one game console on the market. There would still be competition among developers to create games that people want to buy. I suppose, though, that it could result in hardware stagnation. Maybe this could be avoided by having a group of companies work ...

Re: Oh boy a true ds successor

Yes. GBA SP is where it's at. I find using the triggers a bit uncomfortable because of the square shape, though.
Look for one of the backlit ones (model AGS-101). They have a much brighter screen, like the Micro's.

Who is the other evil in this relationship?... As Kogen said, many of the games I listed just aren't good. So one game in a given pair is the lesser of two evils. (ex. Shinobi or Nightshade). ...but if you are only just now getting around to a PS2 then you probably don't like Metal Gear?... You're ...

The Lesser of Two Evils (PS2 Recommendations)

I noticed that there are several Sega PS2 games with sequels/revisions. For each pair of games below, which do you think is "better"? 1. Shinobi or Nightshade (Kunoichi) -Nightshade is a little easier? 2. Gungrave or Gungrave Overdose -HG101 says Overdose has better gameplay? 3. Headhunter or Headhu...
