    "You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to Tony H again." Thanks for this -- exactly the kind of tool that can help a lot of budding hackers!

    Awesome! Great to see some movement, and particularly nice to see a Koei game fall. Very much appreciated, and that brings us to 24 North American Genesis games left. :)

    I doubt it (that it's on anyone's list)! If you have expertise with the game, go for it for sure. I gave it a shot a while back but had little luck. Goati could speak to it more.

    I dig Curse. The frame rate may be low, but the gameplay is very enjoyable and the music is memorable. (Even if it rips off "Here Comes the Sun." :D )

    Don't get me wrong, Barone -- it's easy to see that Eliminate Down is a labor of love, with tons and tons of TLC put into it.

    Ah, got it. Wasn't sure if I was missing anything, given how difficult combat can sometimes be. Is there leveling-up in this game or is character growth all done with items/weapons?

    $300 certainly ruled the system out for me and my family. Mind you, $250 would still have been out, but less so. But sub-$100 was the magic number for anything.
