Re: Akira for MegaDrive

That Amiga game looks horrible. :)

Interesting read there about THQ. Sounds like the bit off way more than they could chew.

Re: Akira for MegaDrive

Agreed... wonder what the story behind that on is. You could do some fun with with the concepts in the film. I admit, it would be caching in, and as it stands, it needs no follow up (and I hope it doesn't get one) but could still be fun.

Re: The emulation thread...

At this point I'd way rather see Distopia than DDP Campaign Version. But fuck, why not wish for both? I do kind of like the mystique that surrounds this stuff. In the late 90's when I first moved to Japan, there seemed to be tons of untapped game knowledge... at least to the gaming world. Akihabara ...

Re: The SRPG thread

Not got a lot of experience w/ this genre, but the first couple of Langrissers are apparently the bees knees. I played through Black Matrix on the Saturn (liked it). Black Matrix Zero I believe on the GBA as well was good. The 3D ones... not so much. The only series I played most of was Sakura Taise...

Re: Jet Set Radio series

I've lost faith in the lot of them. I have had the hankering to play a game or two from time to time, and I admit, my Dreamcast is high on that list. But go out and buy a game? Not sure if I'll ever purchase a new Sega game again.

Re: GP's music picks

Got the new Radiohead. Not thrilled w/ the way they're distributing the vinyl, but oh well. It's a long, dark tunnel for those that haven't heard it. If you like long dark tunnels, you're in for a treat. If you want another OK Computer, you'll likely be upset.

I've got a hankering to play a few things but only a PS3 hooked up. No cables to hook up the old consoles to HDMI only. Might alleviate that soon though.

Re: The emulation thread...

I'll donate in a bit, even though I'm not playing much. You going to get the word out? My guess is a lot of people in the Assembler & Shmups communities would pitch in.

Anyway, good work. I tip my hat to your tenacity.

Re: Jet Set Radio series

There was no "thought" element to the tagging, but this resulted in a much faster paced action game. To do the stages well, you needed to fly past the tag areas and hit them just right. I won't say one was better than the other but I do love Future... the art direction alone I find superio...

I've never listened to Eluvium (probably should), but you may dig Inventions, the duo he plays in with one of the dudes from Explosions in the Sky. I haven't had a chance to listen to their first album or their recent EP, but their second album may be something up your alley. Most definitely -- tha...
