Re: Taito Memories... the collector dilema

If I remember correctly, the boxsets were for the South Korean versions of the game and not sold in Japan - therefore, collectors sometimes tend to avoid these.

Re: Wild Fang and other REALLY violent games

Is there a fan-translated version of Dead of the Brain 1 or 2 available? I would like to play it, but with my humble Japanese skills it wouldn't be much fun.

Re: [ETC] Natsu Game Museum Akihabara

Looks really nice, will keep that in mind. ;)

By the way, is that a Qix sideart on that Space Invaders cab? O_o

Granted, the price drop this time is one of the earliest for any console [...]. It's also unheard of for a company to offer a later bonus for early adopters. I don't wanna be the smartass here, but all this has happened before with the original Xbox in Europe. It launched for 479 Euro on March 14, ...

Eric aka Japan-Games is very knowledgable on pre-8bit consoles in Japan. You might want to contact him over at Assemblergames or through his store on ebay, he will know what those consoles run for on YAJ. An Odyssey will definitely get attention, a Fairchild Channel F... not so sure. CIB Atari stuff...

@GP Having finished the latest seasons of 30 Rock and Big Bang Theory, I'm looking for a new enjoyable comedy/satire show. I read you liked Peep Show which seems good from what I saw, but maybe you could elaborate a bit what the humor is like and if it's what I'm looking for :) I recently got "...

Dexter's what I'd refer to as a "good show", but I didn't think it's as spectacular and ingenious as some people think. I don't believe many things that happen there would be possible or likely in real life and that's a bit of a killer for me since the show wants to be realistic, shocking ...

Here's a pretty interesting and funny article by an essay ghostwriter. There are more than a few parts that don't seem very plausible to me, but it's still worth reading. Depressing indeed. How can people who can neither write nor talk in English get admitted to a US university? What are the admiss...

I think the design is pretty disappointing to be honest :( Nice collectible for fans of the game, but they could have done much better. Why don't they ever use these transparent buttons? Or glowing ones? I think this is just as boring as the Death Smiles ans Futari sticks :/ If I would have to choos...

Sounds like an exponential score system. If I were at your place, I would suicide at an early stage in the test, try to get the rank as low as possible and then score at maximum power until the end. ;) Topic: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A5Vb9SLkq5k&feature=player_embedded The Manslater... &qu...

I've used MAME a few times to try something that I read about and have never seen, but I find the experience to be lacking. Same with me. Most of the shooters I tried first on MAME weren't successful in keeping my attention. The complete opposite with PCB's or console shooters - the practical aspec...

Is this stick unit sold by Hori? They're very pricey, and shipping is absolutely ridiculous. I would not expect to find one outside of Japan for less than $500 USD. One of these was sold for about 200 GBP on Arcade-Otaku not too long ago! I am still crying myself to sleep for being too late... :cry...

Although you're right that there's a blue version as well. Super Pang has it, but this doesn't explain the existence of the red board shown above. O_o

I saw it at the same festival as CIT in August. The entire movie had an incredible velocity written all over it: story, animation, sound.
