lets play Namco Anthology 2

A few weeks ago, while looking up more info on one of my favorite games to play on MAME, Valkyrie no Densetsu, I came across these screenshots: http://www.hardcoregaming101.net/valkyrie/valkps4.png http://www.hardcoregaming101.net/valkyrie/valkps1.png Like, "damn", right? That looks fuggin...

Jesus, God. I only found out about this game like four weeks ago, but Namco Anthology 2 is a FIVE STAR GOLDEN CLASSIC.

Onimusha, PS2 Got the 3rd one in the mail, but felt the need to re-play the original before trying it. This game is easy, but fun. Very satisfying to kick a monster down, then impale him. StarFox Command, DS I hated it, but found myself playing it a lot regardless. Terrible controls, crappy 3-secon...

but yes, ALL new PS3's have no PS2 backwards compatibility whatsoever. :/ So I would have to find an older model to have it run PS2 games? I'm confused. One other question: lets say I did want to play online. If I have a JPN PS3, is the network going to lock me out of playing a la XBox Live with mo...

Teach me about the PS3.

Okay, so last night I bought a sealed VF5 (US) for a real good price. So now I'm at least considering a PS3 purchase. But I'm pretty clueless about it, so... 1. What is the region lockout situation on it? If I buy a JPN PS3, can I play US games and vice versa? 2. Only the 40 gig version will not pla...

Been getting back to my roots lately. Virtua Fighter Specifically, Virtua Fighter 4 PS2, Virtua Fighter 3tb DC, and Virtua Fighter 2 Sega Ages PS2. It had been some time since I had played one of these with any regularity until I re-acquired VF4 in a trade. Now I'm like a fiend, practicing my Jacky ...

X is okay for score. Its also the best game in the series.

Metal Slug died when SNK did. Every new one gets a lot of hype, and every one has been stinky ass. Just forget about it already.

I still love VHS. Recording and copying for me usually starts with a VHS master, since so much worthwhile ancient shit has never been put on DVD.

Big Tournament Golf (Neo Turf Masters) is not "literally identical" to Irem Skins Game. Come on, man. They're similar, but Neo Turf is way way better.

Baseball Stars 2 is by SNK and is one of the best games on the Neo.

Alien Soldier, Megadrive
The best Treasure game on the system, probably the best game on the system, totally kickass.

Then a bunch of other stuff that hasn't seen enough play to write much about. I will say that the original Klonoa on PSone is still a winner.

Tecmo Bowl: Kickoff (DS) I play the three good games in the series enough that this is seeing a fair amount of play, though its no NES TSB. A curious mix of US production with Japanese programming, its pretty clear there was a lack of direction in its development. No NFL license really hurts. I usu...

Apologies for the self-bump, but I thought it was ironic that within days of this thread's original posting,

I know its only a few screens and all, but something I find troubling about this is how bland and sterile it looks.

I'm so jaded to new gaming that I can't get excited about this. It may be fine, but somehow I doubt its as good (or better) than the original.

Sin and Punishment is one of those games that negates the opinions of N64 bashers. A classic.

I've never had to go to the hospital for sickness, but I had one of those "24-hour flus" a few years back that really knocked me on my ass. Nothing a little love and hot soup couldn't cure, but the day prior and that morning I felt near death.
