    I was wondering who's video I'd seen that on. I believe it was Dave that was raving about that game.

    I'm not saying it's Dave's fault, but the price of a complete copy quadrupled right after that vid. So it's Dave's fault.

    Yep. YouTube has indirectly ruined the classic games market. Part of me thinks it would be financially beneficial to stock up on cheap no-name garbage then publish a video of the game to "market" it so people would buy my newly listed (and marked up) copies of the game. I don't because I'm not evil, but it'd work for sure. It works every time.

    On topic, I picked up Valkyria Chronicles 4 on sale (digitally... so no tank) for Xbox One X. Going into chapter 2, and so far it's pretty clumsy and slow, but reviews assured me that things will get better.

    Unfortunately resellers or just money-grubbing a-holes in general, know that it's smart to watch what popular channels promote and then snatch them all up and resell. It doesn't take much to completely change the perception of a game's value, and sadly collectors are always dumb enough to just pay whatever is being asked. The value of games is very artificial compared to other collectible items, people just kind of arbitrarily assign a price to a game and everyone just goes along with it. Someone did an experiment with Rampart for the GameBoy where they over-saturated eBay with their own listings asking a much higher price and it actually warped the value of the game indefinitely to reflect his higher price. It's all just BS and everyone knows it.

    Scratched one more off the PS2 list.

    I recently learned the first one was ported to PS1 under the name Mobile Light Force and had the charlie's angels on the cover.

    Life!? ... What console is that on?

    Weird thing is there is a Mobile Light Force 2 (exact same cover art as well) on PS2 but isn't Gunbird 2. Shikigami no Shiro instead. How is the PS1 port btw?

    It's unfortunate both of those games were released ahead of the actual Charlie's Angels game that bombed so hard. Might've put an end to the Angels phase before it started. They at least dropped the MLF nonsense for Shikigami 2.

    I don't even mind that they did something so silly, but you at least have to go all the way with it. Don't just slap a completely unrelated label on something and call it good. Convert the whole thing, and the more ridiculous it gets, the better.

    Not a game but a soundtrack I've wanted for a long time. Just always been a bit out of range what I was comfortable paying. Recently found a used copy really cheap. Not a knockoff. One of my fave OSTs ever to a game. Years of waiting paid off.

    Snagged this from letgo on New Year's Day:



    I'm kind of surprised no one came from under me to get it considering it took a while before he could actually meet. He was going to include Linux too free of charge but said he forgot to grab it and left it at home. He said he still has more games to list and if I buy two of them, he'll throw the Linux one in for free again. We'll see.

    Nice! Did you know there is a .hack GU HD collection on PS4? Pretty enjoyable games if a little dated. I do hope we get one for Xenosaga this gen.

    Wow, pretty cool to see such an old thread still going! Very interesting to see what people were picking up 11 years ago!

    I just recently found out about Saturn NetLink peripherals so I just had to add them to my collection. So far I have the Modem, Mouse and Keyboard and just waiting on the Keyboard Adapter to come in. I know the Keyboard was never sold separately and only came with the Saturn NetLink System so I made up some artwork and will get it printed and adhered on to a Dreamcast keyboard box for display purposes. I just photoshopped my artwork into this pic so I could see what it looks like.
