Oh God.. "Kirby super stars" for SNES is one of my favorite games of ALL TIME. I still never found all the treasures in the treasure hunt game, damnit- despite playing the game for over 10 years or so! (This is the first time one of the humorous "Buy this if" lines accurately describes me ^^)

Question about Disgaea- I've heard so much about this game, and I know the original PS2 version is rare and expensive now. Are the DS and PSP port basically the same as the original, including cinemas? I know part of the fun of that game was supposedly the anime-ness, and I wouldn't imagine a DS card would be capable of holding much video...

Absolutely no one can disagree on the sheer awesomeness of that Megaman 9 Press Kit...

Makes me wish Capcom will hold some kind of contest or something with a few of those babies up for grabs... *keeps close eye on the blog*

About 80% of the games I plan to buy this year come out this week and I am now a broke student who is unable to buy more than one of them.

The original didn't really have cinema's. It's cheap-ass animation all over (stills, big portraits, lots of sprites) and that's why we love it Smile If you want Disgaea, you might as well buy the DS vesion, since it's the cheapest one.

I agree too; all the classic games were amazing. Mega Man 8 is still my all time favorite.

That said, the fact there's a Mega Man 9 is all that matters. I've waited long enough for just Mega Man and Bass to whet my appetite.

Now I have to go buy a Wii...

Last I checked, the PS2 version is the cheapest of the three (the most recent print is Greatest Hits.) The only downside is that you don't get the portable bonus mode.

Oh yeah, I had forgotten about that! One would think the news of hell freezing over would be memorable.... whoops...

Ah well, it's not as if Europe is getting a budget edition (right?), so the DS version is still the cheapest in 1/3 major regions Razz

Most people don't know that Karas was originally an American one-shot comic book by Dark Horse Comics.

I'm still struggling through the DS Lost in Blue... It's basically turned into a housework sim. Every day I get up, feed the fire, milk the goat, look for seaweed and firewood, come back, make his packed lunch for tomorrow and wait for him to get home. He eventually arrives at some stupid time like four am, eats the food I've lovingly prepared, tells me there's nothing new today and goes to sleep, with hardly enough time to get rested. At least they didn't blur the screen to simulate my near blindness.

Is Lost in Blue that boring? In Stranded Kids I fought tigers with a knife, explored ancient ruins, kept a monkey as a pet and even did some crocodile hunting.

Would kids these days even remember Hamtaro? Even if they do, I'm sure they wouldn't care about this game The show is no longer on [US] TV and the DVDs are damn near impossible to find.

TvC: I'm holding out hope for Komugi (Nurse Witch version) or Runa (Soul Taker version), though Kyosuke is more likely.

Phantasy Star 0 graphically looks good for a DS game, but bad overall. I actually loved PSO and PSU and wouldn't mind seeing more in that vein.A continuation of the original Phantasy Star canon would be awesome, but looking at the recent SEGA remakes, I don't think it would be a great idea.
