That's my favorite post of the day. :nice!:
As I get further and further into Tales of Destiny, I'm starting to get pretty bummed that we never got ToD2. I want to play as Stahn's son, dammit.

Atleast namco isnt like square and now how and when to stop making a sequel to one of the main games in the series, and on top of that make a good sequel to one of them. From what little I have seen of Tales of Destiny 2, it basiacally keeps to the same formula as the first game but on the PS2, instead of trying to take the high road and see how we can make the second experience vary exponentially compared to the first game, prime example, FFX-2 from square. Especially since both these were from the PS2 era.

I'm only on Chapter 13 of Fire Emblem: Awakening but I'll start Path of Radiance as soon as I'm done. Star Successor is pretty amazing, the wii motion controls work perfectly in the game. That and Metroid Prime Trilogy really use the wiimote well.

^Matsuno and Suda51, doesn't get much better then that! Both are great games; Crimson Shroud is still my favourite game on the 3DS next to Virtue's Last Reward. It's a great experimental RPG with a Vagrant Story-esque storyline. And Suda51's Liberation Maiden is very much made for fans of shooters like Star Fox (in free roam mode), plus the story gets certifiably weird towards the end.

Eleven bucks at Best Buy. No clue when I'll actually play it, but I kept meaning to snag it anyway.

I just love getting three new games for thirty six bucks. You really can't beat the value of this system. :heart:
I'm not happy that FF1 and 2 aren't in the same collection as they were on the Playstation, but it is not as though they're still going for $30 each like they used to, so it's not so bad. I've been meaning to give chinatown wars a try for a while now, it's the highest rated game on the psp and ds. :shock: The Capcom collection I picked up because I'm really eager to own super ghouls and ghosts (along with the prequels, god have mercy on my soul).

New.
They stick some really weird, un-rounded prices on games every now and then, but it usually results in a nice little bargain.

this isnt necessarily a gaming purchase but its why i bought it. I went to hook up my dreamcast to play Shenmue and realized my new TV doesnt have composite hook up!! (you know, the old school yellow red white hook up) i saw half my gaming life flash before my eyes. so i bought this convertor box. you plug your composite into the box and then an HDMI wire from the box to your TV. it works great! very happy with my purchase.

Did you even check if your TV supported VGA and S-video?
