Re: Errors on game entry pages

I know I'm probably the only person in the world who still looks at these, but I really enjoy checking out the cover scans and reading the informative and sometimes funny write-ups. But I'm sad to see a lot of the images on the index pages are missing, and game pages like Chi no Rondo and others gi...

Nintendo Switch

Who's getting one? Honestly I'm only excited for Zelda, but I assume something else will catch my fancy. Not sure how long I will wait but I think I will eventually get one.

Re: The Official WTF are YOU playing right now thread

Okami was amazing, except that it was so bloody easy. Such uninspired fights...everything else I found jaw dropping. Probably could have been 10 hours shorter though. I actually just beat Super Mario Galaxy (hardcore, huh?) Deciding whether to get all the stars or not. I got a J-Xbox and am wanting ...

Re: The Official WTF are YOU playing right now thread

Super Mario Galaxy (first one). Pretty fun... just never get an chance to play more than short bursts.

Just now reading how many stars there are, not sure if I will get them all. I got all 120 in SMG2, which was fun, but I had fewer hobbies then, ironically.

Re: Dork out: Game Goals...

I'm still plugging away at Dark Seal off and on. I can almost make it to the end of stage four before game over. I am going to get back on it this weekend. I am also still playing Sengoku Blade and working on a one loop clear with Junis. I am almost there but the lanterns...oh man the lanterns. I h...

Re: Documentary on the Japanese Game Preservation Society

Makes you wonder if anyone at the Falcom offices even have one. Who'd have thought... a fucking cassette tape. Magnetic medium though.. it won't work forever. Will it hold it's value after? Glad I have no desire for such a thing. :)

Re: Documentary on the Japanese Game Preservation Society

Interesting documentary. Thanks for providing the link! I’m wondering if the Galactic War 1 tape by Falcom that Joseph presents at the end of the documentary and that he spent 15 years looking for is the same that Beep in Akihabara is selling for 450,000 Yen at the moment? Does it even work? Is the...

Cheers! Looks like Shou's home.

Pretty cool stuff -- especially the castte games. I know they are (or recently were) sought after by a lot of groups. Surely they have very little life left. Are the DECO cassettes all preserved? Looks like at least one showed up.

And that Sigma joystick!

Re: Japanese developed games not physically released in Japan

AFAIK, there is a Japanese language version (called Mach Go Go even) that was loke-tested. Japanese text, and all, and a certain member here has at least scene it (if not own it).

You got to love 1P. And who could forget 2P? There's more Lost Worlds art I need to scan. Eventually I'll put all this stuff on Mediafire too, in higher quality. Where did it originate from? I was always on the lookout for offbeat stuff like that but don't recall an LW pieces sticking out. I tried ...

Definitely out on the Rez soundtrack. It was good, but only for a game. The VR release of the game is the only thing that has me thinking, "having a VR set might be cool". I knew Casino Versus Japan had something coming out soon but didn't know it was this month. Cheers. I will get it, eve...

Such as the "Vinyl Revival" perhaps? I follow game music and some have been released in that format. Perhaps. However, records never really stopped either. I learned how to DJ on vinyl so have always had some, even though I stopped while in hawaii. I guess the principal of actually holdin...

Re: Dork out: Game Goals...

Galaxy 2 was the last game I really, really got into and completed 100%. Shit, maybe the only game ever. Can't remember another where I got every single thing... always had too much of a back log. That being said, I'm thinking of giving Galaxy 1 a go as I skipped it. Hoping it's as fun as 2.

Re: Are we old yet? Or: Do you still collect?

Speaking of Mega Drive, I regret not grabbing a complete in box Bare Knuckle 2 for 800 yen some years ago. My logic: I'll wait for a cheaper one. That was pretty stupid of me. At 800 yen, perhaps, but honestly games are like any other collectible. The floor could easily bottom out at some points. I...
