Guilty Gear X looked great to me through VGA. I don't know if its supposed to look any better, but I didn't notice anything bad about it on its own.

I never did get around to picking up Ikaruga, so I'll probably buy the XBLA version.

I'm really looking forward to Omega Five. Since its being released through XBLA it can't cost that much.

The VC Turbo emulation is alright. The main thing is that the sound is fairly distorted and the graphics use and ugly blur filter. There are random differences on a title by title basis. Aside from the sound and blurring, it was clear that they aren't putting much effort into the emulation when they...

[XB] Tengai Makyo ZIRIA on XBox 360

At the recent XBox 360 Summit Hudson announced a remake of the original Far East Of Eden: ZIRIA for XBox 360. :D Here's what 1UP.com had to say- "Hudson held a hot hand this afternoon, revealing anime role-playing game Tengai Makyo Ziria from Sakura Taisen developer Red Entertainment.

Super ugly. I hope you can turn off the in-battle screaming busts. At least the maps have been touched up and the battles actually have bg art.

Re: [PS2] Ys: The Ark of Napishtim Screenshots

Konami has added some very small, but viewable screenshots for their upcoming Ys: Ark of Napishtim. Looks cool. Although I'm not happy that they dropped the ramming attacks, I'm glad they're still using the character cutout onscreen when you meet someone. Since I hate playing games on PC, I now hav...

If you're talking about Playagain, then I guess it depends on where you're downloading from. The games close to 100 megs only took me like 20 minutes to download. If thats too slow for free working roms, its still fast enough for me ;)

Iron Storm for U.S. Sega Saturn, if you're a gaijin. Also, aren't Adavance Wars games supposed to be similar?

Well, I think that they were better off dropping the "Homogalutan Special' or whater ever in the U.S. release of Sega GT. Black Dragon -> Black Tiger -why? I still love it but why? especially since they're mortal enemies. Winds Of Thunder -> Lords Of Thunder Area 88 -> UN Squadren Tatakai no Banka -...

I hated the graphics. Its all new art and instead of the cool gothic theme of the original and Shining In The Darkness, its all pastels now. They even changed the hero's promoted outfit from black metal to fruity shining armor. The game is totally redone and the balance is out the window. Now, the o...

More ramming please

I love ramming games! I want more Ys ramming, but will be satisfied with whats already out if they never ram up Ys ever again. Ys III is not ramming, its a Popful Mail port theme Ys. And of course, by 'themed Ys' that only means that Adol's in it and some of the items seem familiar.
