Not a bad idea. I had so much fun when I did that on Genesis a couple years ago. Such a gem, that one.

Man Ys should just be called "Balance: The game" Everything in it worked out to such a meticulous fucking detail especially the bump system. its possessed of a complex simplicity that most casual and "midcore" games wish they could master.

Going back and actually looking at some of these older games as systems and even as storytelling machines I'm starting to zero in on some of what has been lost over the last decade or so of game design.

Holy crap. A casual Tekken Rev session I was in quickly escalated to a hate spewing argument via mic and text chat. :lol: :lol: :lol:

It's times like this I wish I had recording equipment.

I'm rather glad I never play online matches with voice chat. An experience like that would probably make me never wanna play it again.

Nope its freeware so instead of trying to sell it they patch it and let you have it. They also give out games randomly at times like I got the original Duke nukem games and Divinity 2 for free just cause.

Listening to my Xenogears CD's on the stereo. Game is great but personally I like the OST more. I also enjoyed XB more as a game. Not saying it's better or XG is better. XB had a nice OST but XG I will say has a far better OST IMO and one of the best on PSone. To me the best OST's on PSone are in no real order,Final Fantasy IX,Chrono Cross,Xenogears & Suikoden II.

I just need the Suikoden OST now.

Yuji Naka's done it... he's gone and created the fishing game I've always wanted... I used to struggle finding great games on the wii, but now they just keep popping up out of nowhere! I'm getting this game as soon as I have the opportunity!

http://www.amazon.com/Kingdom-Hearts-HD ... d_sim_vg_2

so apparently they are coming out with a hard cover guide for the KH 1.5 remix. I have the original guide for the first KH, but this one is looking pretty sexy, im trying to figure if it will be worth a purchase. I am not sure if I should pre-order now or just wait and buy it once it comes out. The game comes out September 10th and the guide comes out September 24th... weird. Maybe I'll wait for some reviews for the guide, im still pretty interested in it though.

Thought this was pretty cool of Kojima leaving Metal Gear/general trivia on his Twitter:

Jeager. Chuck Jeager, Frank Jeager, and Elen Jeager. Jeager means hunter in German. That's why Naomi's fake name is "Hunter".


Naomi Hunter (Jeager). I was going to name her "Naomi Kay", the anagram of KONAMI.


"MG1(87)"-"SNATCHER(88)"-"MG2(90)"-"SNATCHER CD(92)"-"POLICENAUTS(94〜96)". Was tough time for "POLICENAUTS" during company restructuring.


Releasing "MGS The Legacy Collection" on the very last day of 25th anniversary of MG. And 25th anv of "SNATCHER" in this coming Nov.


Snatcher re-release on PSN/Xbox Live/Nintendo eShop? I wish.

Plus some details on MGS5:

BTW, there will be crawling in my next "MGS".


Restriction of using the enemy's weapon was because of the future setting w/ ID weapons. Next game setting is in old days so u can use them.
