    You keep buying all of those Switch games and some around here might start accusing you of being a Nintendo fanboy. :P

    I decided to buy Final Fantasy III from a guy on Ebay. The price was reasonable ($12 shipping was not) and the cart was in pretty decent shape. I thought I'd still had the box an manual for it, but it turns out that I only had the manual now, and for some odd reason, it was in a case with the map from Mystic Quest and the original Final Fantasy. When I was notified that the item had finally shipped, I'd noticed that it was coming from Missoula Montana, where my brother lives. I joked with him (told it better be a legit cart) about him selling it to me. It gets even funnier, because when I powered up the cart to see if the saves were still good, one of the save names (Joe) was the name of my brother. I had to send him a picture and joke with him about it more.







    I was up in Denton Texas on Thursday. I had some time between jobs, so I went to the Mall there, to check things out. This guy had a videogame store and I decided to check it out. His prices weren't great, but I thought I'd support a brick and mortar place of business. He had this clean RR64 cart, and I already had the box and manual from when I'd owned the game a long time ago. Now its complete and almost like new.

    If you played the demo on the Switch it's terrible. If you played it on PS V, Series X it's such a different game. Its much better on the One X too.

    Played it on PS4 and it was terrible. Never touched the Switch demo. Funny the demo still sits on my PS4.

    Played it on the PS5. I really wanted to like the game TA. I really did but it's just lacking very very badly. I don't usually hate on stuff from Naka but this one did it.

    At least you tried. I think it's like NiGHTS, BLiNX where they aren't amazing have issues, but just feel and look different enough to warrant a playthrough and where Ohshima-san art direction is amazing along with the lovely music
    Balan for me plays and feels like a Platform version of NiGHTS.

    Really enjoyed it along with Sackboy A Big Adventure, which for me is the best platform game I've played in years

    Here's the thing. NiGHTS on PS3 is a better game then Balan. That's about all I can say.

    I'm not the biggest fan of NiGHTS tbh and never played the PS3 version, but if it's anything like the 360 version it's not really in the same class as the Saturn game. I loved BLiNX mind and really enjoyed Balan its looks and feels like a Platform game based in the NiGHTS Universe

    If youíre not a big fan of Nights, then why would you use that as a reason to like Balan?

    Edit*

    * Just checked out a video of the game. Oh, hell no! It looks like some crap European Amiga platformer that was converted to a 3D world.

    Just picked up a Neo CD. It was just too clean to pass up. Not quite new in box because the seal was broken, but the controllers and booklets were still sealed in their little bags with original tape. The console and wires had been opened, but it is so clean, I wonder if it was ever played with. And whenever you see these controllers nowadays, the clicky d-pads are usually messed up, so I'm very happy about this.

    Thanks, fellas. I got one from a local shop about 10 years ago, but it was in rough shape and it stopped reading games after maybe a year, so I was pumped to come across this one. Games were a heck of a lot cheaper back then though, sheesh. Looking over ebay, it seems like half the library goes for over $100 nowadays.
