Not a Sonic fan.

Oooh. A gold-colored version of Sonic Adventure 2. I've successfully resisted buying this "collector's item", which is only available this weekend. The graphics are crisp, but the control sometimes works agains the camera angle. Oh well, I never finished Sonic Adventure 1 anyway, why pick up this bundle? So what if it comes in a special case with a 10 year anniversary medal?

Can't wait to play with linux?

I wonder when my PS2 Linux kit is coming...

U.S. games in Japan, Wanting limited ed stuff.

Color me surprised when I found Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2 (GBA, US) at the Sofmap in Nipponbashi. I think they had those US games for the GBA because of the US launch. Other than Tony Hawk, they had Army Men, Castlevania, and ... um I forgot. ^_^; So far, I'm addicted to the Tony Hawk game. It's cool!

On my next list of conquests, I'm planning to get the new limited edition Pokemon Ceramic Green Game Boy Advance. (2nd one is now lime green) I find in hard to believe that you have to go online to register for a purchase. Last time I just went to the Pokemon store to reserve my copy.

Oh, I forgot to mention that I was infatuated with the Chrono Trigger (SNES, US) soundtrack. I bought the original SNES sound 3 CD set from Seidensha, and then I bought the arrange album. The arrange album is supposed to be real instruments, but it still sounded like crap.

Games games, I don't play much any more. Gran Turismo is just sitting on my shelf, collecting dust. Hey, make it easier for me to set up my steering wheel and maybe I'll play it more. Maybe I'll go buy me a brick to keep the pedal base from sliding. Yeah, I can't imagine walking home with a brick in my bag.

Still the evil, Final Fight One

I've been on the Arcade/Console ROM search for the last couple of weeks. Ever since I got that console controller converter, it's been playing games for nostalgia. I would share with you the list of ROMs I've got, but well, I don't have the license to play these games anyway...

But now I've bought a game that I'll share with you... Final Fight One (GBA-jp). It's cool. If you remember the beat-em-ups from the early 1990, you'd remember Final Fight. This time around, you can change the color of the fighters and even get turbo-attack so that you don't wear out your action button. I've already beat it though. But at least this is the first game I've actually liked on GBA (save for Mr. Driller 2).
