Are you sure this is a thing? On ebay I can only find it for the PC.


Yes, several on eBay under its localised name, Phantasm. See: https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R ... n&_sacat=0

The first 2 seasons are great.

Multiple discs and PS1 are a recipe for an absolute disaster of epic proportions. This isn't anything like multiple discs for a PC game, because those don't have agonizing load times. How did people accept this stuff back in the 5th gen I have no idea. I wasn't so incredibly thirsty for "modern" games that I'd make that tradeoff.

Talk about mudflaps, my VCS got 'em... how can I leave this BEHIND?

(The original song's lyrics, as well as the use of nothing but bass guitars for the strings for the whole track, are pure comedy genius.)

Panzer Dragoon Saga (Saturn) came on four discs, I believe. In the world of PC gaming multiple CD games were pretty standard in the late 90s, so why not on consoles also?

I thought the X-Files was really good. Was it just not your cup of tea or did you just never get around to watching it?
