Re: 2020/7/12: Playstation: Elemental Gearbolt

P.S. If you want to see REALLY expensive.. check out the "Assassin's Case" version of Elemental Gearbolt, which came with a gold-plated Guncon. I just learned about it while googling the game. Supposedly it was an E3 prize and less than 50 were made, so they're ultra rare and a sought afte...

Re: 2020/7/12: Playstation: Elemental Gearbolt

The review isn't too long at all IMO. The background about the game and your old saves adds length, but I think it makes the review more interesting. I had never heard of this game before, but I would definitely buy it if not for the exorbitant price tag. (Looks to be selling for around $150 on ebay...

Re: Best Light Gun Game?

I imagine they would, but I'm not sure. I've never imported with the PS1 and never had a modded console. But it seems like as long as the gun is normally compatible with your console hardware, then it shouldn't matter that the software is imported.

Re: Best Light Gun Game?

Never heard of Rescue Shot but I'm interested. It's an import. I've never played it, but I've seen it on Youtube and it looks like a pretty unique style of light gun game. Reviews are mixed (but mostly positive), but the uniqueness might make it up your alley. This is a video of it: https://www.you...

Re: Best Light Gun Game?

We're failing here. I was gonna guess Rescue Shot, but I see that you haven't reviewed that one. Elemental Gearbolt is an obscure one.

Re: Best Light Gun Game?

Based on the PS1 hint, I'd usually guess Time Crisis or Point Blank. But from your reviews, my actual guess is Die Hard Trilogy. For me personally, I have a soft spot for Virtua Cop on the Saturn. Virtua Cop came with my Saturn set that I got on ebay sometime around 2002. I played it a bunch and had...

Re: Halloween is Coming!

Also, for PS4 and Vita, it looks like there was a limited run release for Japan. It sells for like $40-ish on ebay, so it's a bit cheaper than the Switch version. But not sure if it's English-friendly. Probably not worth the risk though. People are also selling Switch digital codes on ebay for $10, ...

Re: Halloween is Coming!

Is Hotline Miami available on physical media? Yes, there was a recent physical release on the Switch. The game is on several systems, but only Switch got a physical release. It was a small "limited run" release by Special Reserve Games, and Limited Run Games also collaborated on it. This ...

Re: Halloween is Coming!

Will telling you that Hotline Miami is a surreal, hallucinogenic slasher-movie simulator starring a mentally-ill man wearing a collection of animal masks get you to play it for Halloween? I'll say anything at this point. I'm with you. I'll always take any opportunity to tout Hotline Miami . This ga...

Re: Limited Run Games

Just now I noticed an interesting game up for preorder Jay and Silent Bob: Mall Brawl. This thing is, this an NES title ported to the Switch. If I can get an NES copy I would prefer that. But I'm trying to figure out if that's even available. From what I've seen, the NES version was a very limited ...
