It is Castlevania and it is 2d so it is bound to come out. What was the name of that Castlevania game that came out late last fall in the states that originally only came out on computers like 15 years ago. If Konami is willing to give up that pile of stinky stuff for $20 on the Playstation, then th...

Looks like we've got a winner (ICP). It is just too bad that there were so few games within the adv/rpg/strat line on the DC like there were on the Saturn or a topic like this one would probably be irrelavent; but since there is just so little...everyone is giving their thoughts. Time Stalkers is an...

I love PSO even if it is somewhat redundant at times, but I swear it is one of the prettiest games I have played. I have not been so astounded at such beautiful surroundings in a game since Unreal came out on the PC. I also have never played it online, but I have been able to level up to 20 somethin...

According to Sega, their old Dreamcast games have been discontinued although finding most of the older titles is not too hard (sega sports in particular) but finding something like a new virtua fighter 3tb is next to impossible. I remember back in late 2000 you could find new vf3, star wars episode ...

PS2 Linux Dev Kit

I just got an email from Sony stating that PS2 Linux dev kit is available for preorder with shipping in May. Has anyone heard anything interesting made with it over in Japan like playing any Linux version games like Quake 3 or Doom?

I guess perhaps that is why it never made it to the states, but that is no reason for it to have come out anywhere if it was that bad. However, that is just a fact of life when it comes out to console games. How many times do they ever have recalls because of quality issues with console games. Usual...

As I sell and buy stuff on ebay all the time, if it looks too good to be true, it probably is. Also, the Dreamcast itself is so much harder to find these days that used units, atleast here in the states, are selling for $70 at places like EB and Gamestop. It is a fake auction.

Exhibition of Speed...an SoE exclusive release?

I remember late last year that there were still a couple of games still listed as having a release date here in the US, and one of those games was Exhibition of Speed. When time passed, I simply forgot about the title, but I stumbled across the name while looking on ebay. Has anyone played this game...

The gc is technically superior than the ps2, but the ps2 is a lot more games that consist of far more mature content than the gc. Nintendo made a great move in getting the Resident Evil series, but only time will tell if others will follow. It is a good thing that Take 2 is giving some good support,...

I really don't think that IGN is going anywhere. The only thing I have witnessed is that they have increased their amount of advertising to an annoying level with the ads right in the middle of whatever you are reading. Not to mention, it is Imagine Media, the publishers of pc gamer, psm, next gen, ...

It is all about the advertising. I completely agree with everyone's fine comments about this topic. I used to by a very staunch Nintendo supporter, but I always had a strange curiosity for Sega. Mario in my mind could never be super unless he went on a diet while Sonic was loud and disrespectful. Th...

I've got both Saturn games, and the comments of RE on PSX vs Saturn are right on target. As for The House of the Dead, I got that some months back. If you get the US version, plan on spending a pretty penny for that one. I spend $50 to get my hands on the US one, but you can get the SoJ release for ...

That is true.

Blue Shift was made by Gearbox and supervised by Valve. It would be king if Half Life DC ever did see the light of day. The problem is that there are a lot of people involved to probably get it released. You've got Valve (the creators of Half Life), Gearbox (in charge of making the enhancements to H...

Yes, Sega GT 2002 will be a sweet addition to the Xbox and will definitely be a wise choice as an exclusive for the X (although I think that a GC version would be in order IF it an fit on those little discs). People who love GT and have a PS2 will stick their GT.
