  1. Konami was/is notorious for lazy ports. The XBox version of Metal Gear Solid 2 should have also have been better from a tech standpoint compared to the PS2 version.
  2. Actually, that usually is the price I hear AO go for to a patient eBayer. Its the impatient ones that end up spending a whole lot more.
  3. You're forgetting the ability to play as teenage Maria, Coop (Unless I'm getting senile, and forgetting that one of the other releases had her as well.) I remember EB carrying imports. Software ect... did too before they were bought out by Gamestop. That's where I got my copy of SotN for the Saturn. They also had a copy of Radiant Silvergun for $40, which I'm still kicking myself for not picking up.
  4. Fair enough. I remember what they charged me because the sticker is still on the case, if you got it for 15 USD less, kudos. I did get my copy of Guardian Heroes from the same store for 15 USD. My bad. Missed it in your wall'o'text. Still, worth commenting that it was also released under the name Blazing Heroes in North America.
  5. How'd you manage that price, Coop? I'd pre-ordered my PDS as well (from Software Ect...) and mine cost me 65 USD. To be fair it could have been S Ect... price gouging towards the end of the Saturn's life. Not complaining...its not like I paid 200 USD off of ebay, but I remember it being kind of rule of thumb that Saturn RPG games were priced comparable to SNES RPGs. Sega's systems always seemed to suffer from the fact that mainstream audience always seems to tout the other system's libraries, but for those that bother to look, they find that Sega's systems had some true gems (and I'm not limiting that statement to Saturn). By the way didn't notice this one mentioned, Mystara/Burning Heroes (SRPG). Its a bit clunky, but it was a pretty fun Shining Force style SRPG.
  6. I seem to recall that a number of the same people worked on both games. Considering the era, that game had one of the darker RPG stories as well.
  7. Pretty sure its not Scorpions either...doesn't sound like the singer, and the drums are too busy. Edit: o.O Uh damn, guys...I think its Pantera. If I'm right its a previously unreleased demo from Cowboys From Hell era, and its being released to be included on the new Pantera boxed set.
  8. Heh... the 8800s weren't too badly priced to begin with, if I recall correctly.
  9. My dad knows how to do that...but he was a career electrician, who learned that work from his dad, since his teens, and he just retired 2 years ago. On the other hand, He doesn't know how to put together a modern desktop (although that has more to do with him never having had to do it. If he wanted to learn, I could teach him myself pretty quickly, but seeing as how I know how, he doesn't have to learn ) He just says "Boy! Fix this thing." (I'm 32 and he still calls me "boy" )
  10. Nice. A surprising amount of Sega's Master System seems to be represented Some selections that I recalled, I was not expecting, either. Would I be correct in guessing there are no TG-16 selections, though? Oh, I managed to guess 28 of 50.
  11. This Saturday is the US premier of Distant Worlds: Music from Final Fantasy, at the Rosemont Theatre in Chicago IL. Anyone else going?
  12. If I had a dollar for every time I've had that reaction happen after I mention the Master System. Then, they mistakenly think you're referring to the Genesis. Also, I remember Christmas, 1980. I was 5, and dad had bought the family an Atari 2600. It came with "Combat". He also bought "Space Invaders", and "Outlaw". Thus, an addiction was born. The RF switch that came with the system wasn't even automatic. You had to toggle a switch to change the signal so that you could play.
  13. I have a 1GB iPod shuffle. The On/Off button broke, and now its a glorified USB flash drive. bought an RCA pearl something or other.. has 512 MB of flash memory and a slot for a Mini Pro Duo memory card for expansion and USB plugin for file transfer. This thing cost me 30 USD, and seems capable of taking quite the beating. It does use batteries though (1 AAA=15 hrs of play time at a decent volume level. I intend to invest in rechargables).
  14. Perhaps this CD was an omen... Yes, a portent foretelling of things yet to come for the blue spiky one, and the levels of suck he was destined to descend into. It's all clear to me now. Behold! The great seers: Emerald Hill, Andrea Husak, Oscar Oberheim, and Spike Shellcraker. They alone knew the dark days that would befall the blue blur...indeed all of Sega. They tried to warn us, but we didn't understand at the time. Forgive us, Great Ones...Forgive Us.
  15. Um..there were two Space Ghost CDs *checks amazon* http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=sr_nr_i_3/002-0686181-9640826?ie=UTF8&rs=&keywords=Space%20Ghost&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3ASpace%20Ghost%2Ci%3Apopular OK, my bad...there were five Space Ghost Cds Actually, I still get a kick out of Space Ghost's surf n' turf, but I'm not listening to it for music, I'm listening to it because I want a chuckle at work. Oh, and upload that Sonic CD, today at work was uneventful and smooth so I haven't filled my daily quota of fail today
  16. As a point of interest, a number of the people on the team who worked on Alundra had previously worked on Landstalker for the Genesis which has many similarities with Alundra.
  17. Agree with you here. I know, on a personal level, how aggravating it can be to have a song you wrote as an original sound like another song (a much, much more famous song). As an example: a song I wrote about 12 years ago entitled "Seeking the Ancient Wisdom." (Sorry, this is a project recording so, frankly, the "production" if you want to call it that isn't very good. I never recorded a cleaned-up version of the song.) You get a hint of the more famous song at 0:34 - 0:59. That hint repeats, and then in the chorus, at 2:27 - 3:50, you get the full effect. Both sections repeat throughout the song. I'm not going to name the famous song here (it shouldn't need me to when you hear it) Keep in mind, at no point am I accusing the original song writer, James Horner, of plagiarizing my work (I wrote it about 9 months before the "famous" song started to receive airplay). It is quite simply impossible for him to have done so, only a handful of people had heard the final product at that point, and I can say with full confidence that none of them would have been able to (or wanted to) bring the motifs that I used to Mr. Horner's attention... ...doesn't make it any less frustrating, though. it's one of the reasons I never did a more complete version of the song. http://www.megaupload.com/?d=SXNNM4KT
  18. Craig Safan's OST for the Movie "The Last Starfighter" inspired by Holst's Planets song cycle (Mars: Bringer of War, Jupiter: Bringer of Jolity, ect)
  19. 1) Nice...might have to look into buying some of his stuff 2) As for GH III...it's not like whoever was playing got a perfect ;P
  20. Eric Mylonas (sp?) was one of the editors at a gaming magazine known as GameFan (Previously Diehard Gamefan). In one of the last issues of that mag he commented on being happy that djp had mad a remix for MUSHA (an old Genesis shmup, awesome game), I was curious as I'd just recently discovered the joys of the internet, having recently bought my first PC, and had been looking for video game related music. Because of that, I found my way here.
  21. the evolution of the VC continues
  22. Considering there's a "Last Starfighter" musical, this does not surprise me in the least. Also, I wouldn't mind seeing it.
