There's lots of stuff added to Skies of Arcadia: Legends. I think the only thing that was completely removed was the VMU minigame, so unless you have a VMU the Gamecube version is better. Although the music is a small notch worse because they couldn't fit the orchestral recordings on a single disk (the Dreamcast version has two disks), but that's why I just have the soundtrack on my computer. Also I heard that there are fewer random battles on Gamecube (a really good thing 'cause there are still too many imo) but that in the Dreamcast version you could sometimes predict that a random battle was coming because the disk would spin up, and then go into the menu or something to avoid it.

I do own two MVU's for my two controllers. And what you've mentioned is quite intriguing. From what you've said it sounds as though the Gamecube only outclasses the original version by a small margin, so I could simply play either one and have a great experience. It all depends on which copy I would have a better time of finding in these parts.

You can read all about the differences on Wikipedia. There's a lot of detail there on what was added, like new discoveries and the wanted list for some special boss battles that can be harder than any of the storyline bosses, especially if you wait until later because those bosses scale with player level. Also, I couldn't imagine Skies of Arcadia without the Moonfish sidequest which isn't in the original (I gather that to some extent it replaced Pinta's Quest, which was basically impossible to include because it's a VMU minigame)

omg I remember doing that!! I loved that game. Though not nearly as much as I loved Grandia 2 and Shenmue. Ugh I need to get a Dreamcast again and play all my old favorite games. I saw one a month or so ago at this thrift store in town but I was too scared to get it for some reason. Oh and Record of Lodoss War!!! That game was soooo f*cking fun. Actually, before getting a Dreamcast, I had never played an RPG in my life (Zelda doesn't count fyi) and that's actually what initially got me into "RPG Maker 2000". Ah, the memories..................~

Ah, I own Shenmue 2 for my Dreamcast, and although I own Grandia 2 for the PS2, I would love to have a Dreamcast copy. I believe there is Record Of The Lodoss War on the SNES, but I've yet to find any translation patches for it, which makes me sad. What is the Lodoss War game on the Dreamcast like?

I had Shenmue 2 on Xbox, and f*ck I loved that game so much. I want to play them both again soo much.

Record of Lodoss War is like Diablo 2 styled kinda. Isometric-type of camera angle and just a bunch of dungeon crawling and phat loot etc. It was so fun, cause it was the first game I played where I actually had to grind and get tons of gear in order to beat a dungeon. That concept was completely unknown to me beforehand.

My mistake, it was in fact Shenmue 1 that I own on Dreamcast, although I have seen Shenmue 2 for the Xbox on occasion, I ought to pick it up.

I love Diablo 2, and still play a bit of it on occasion. It definitely sounds like this game is up my alley as well, I shall endeavor to find a copy for myself.

The last time I had played before I restarted, I was nearing the end of the game. I had arrived at the second world (most if not all Tales games has two worlds to explore, so it does not count as spoilers in my opinion), and I believe I was attempting to obtain the secret Elementals, such as Valkyrie or whatever her name is. She was strong, from what I can remember.

I've bought two games off of Steam, Torchlight (a direct clone of Diablo with different graphics and story, even the sound effect for items dropping from monsters and stashes is the exact same as in Diablo) as well as Terraria, which is a 2-Dimensional side-scrolling Minecraft-like game (although some people will try to make you believe it is not) with spriting that greatly resembles Final Fantasy 5 battle sprites.

omg I just bought Terraria too!! I love it. I'd probably say I like Minecraft more, because there's more creativity and scale in Minecraft, but I love how Terraria is more action-oriented and all the epic loot and dungeons and stuff. It also seems really fun to do multiplayer, just going around hacking up zombies and stuff.

Also I'm dying to get "The Witcher 2" ugh. I SHOULDN'T spend the money to get it, but it's a developer I really want to support and the game just looks amazing. I just bought a 27" monitor yesterday and Witcher 2 would look amazing on it..........

Edit: Have you heard of "Darkspore"? It's basically Spore + Diablo, it seems really fun. I'm becoming increasingly obsessed with all the indie games on Steam.

I've seen gameplay on Darkspore, but am unsure as to whether or not my laptop would be strong enough to play it. I was happy when I could run Torchlight and Terraria well on my laptop. I believe Darkspore was roughly 49.99 US on Steam.

I was having a gander at Steam and that Terraria game came up. It looks intriguing! Though I'm still quite attached to my games in a box, I must admit I've really warmed to Steam. A really intuitive piece of software, and there's some fantastic offers on there. In fact I did grab the first Witcher game when that was cheap, though I'm going to take one mammoth RPG at a time. Looks excellent from what I've played, mind, and at a time when publishers will happily produce a half-arsed add-on pack for their games and charge you top whack for it, it's admirable that the developers of The Witcher offered all the work they did to improve the game experience free of charge to gameowners. If developers like our friends at Lionhead and EA are concerned about the lack of loyalty/reduction in sales of their releases (methinks it's only really the latter they care about), they could do much worse than see what those Polish guys are doing.

I am refraining from playing any demanding games until I can afford a desktop, but I have plenty to play on my laptop as well as whatever games I add to my collection.

I've been playing much Torchlight, it is great fun indeed, the game is a Diablo 2 close in the most positive light, I'm enjoying myself even though it has this World of Warcraft Single Player feel to it. The pet was a touch of genius I found, I rarely have to use any Town Portal scrolls.

Terraria is also fantastic. There are so many various aspects to the game; building, mining, exploring, fighting, character advancement, community advancement (achieving certain goals will grant you some helpful NPCs that will live in your buildings such as a merchant, nurse, demolitionist, arms dealer, etc.), and I've yet to truly delve deep into the earth to find what lurks within.

And on the collection's side: I've just purchased today two Playstation 1 games. MediEvil and YuGiOh: Forbidden Memories. MediEvil was a fun game in its time, and although the graphics obviously took a downturn, the gameplay is still intact and I am looking forward to playing through this game once more. Forbidden Memories was a fun game that I enjoyed back when I was in high school, and although I dislike the real card game, this particular video game adaptation was done well. I can only remember one other adaptation on the Game Boy Advance that I liked, I believe it was very RPG-like, in the sense of being able to explore the town during the Battle City Tournament, which is... either Season 2 or... 3? I am unsure.

I had bought Drilldozer for the GBA and Rune Factory for the DS, I was unsure as to whether or not I had mentioned it.

Drill Dozer, was a very awesome game for the GBA. addicting as hell, good story, when you think it´s over you recieve extra challenging levels.

The downside? eh.... you could easily develop carpal tunnel syndrome with that game  XD

I do find it interesting that there is a Rumble Pack within the small cartridge itself.

I've heard good things about The Witcher, and may give it a try once I purchase a desktop. There are many games I haven't had the opportunity to play because of the state of my computer, including Heroes of Might and Magic V.

I've officially given up on The Witcher 2, it's a shame that a game that has so much going for it can have such dumb, but significant, flaws.

I'm playing L.A. Noire for the 360 right now and absolutely loving it, such a clever and polished game. And I'm not even a fan of GTA!

I don't purchase recent games often, the last I've purchased were Brutal Legend and Borderlands.

I am waiting for Pier Solar to come in the mail. For those of you who are unfamiliar, it is a game completely made from scratch by a group of people, and made specifically for the Genesis. They made the box, manual, and even the cartridge themselves. It is an RPG in the vain of Phantasy Star IV I believe, and I am greatly anticipating this game.

I also played (and cleared) Castle of the Winds part 1: A question of vengeance,    

this very old PC game based on nordic tradition, with lots of Odin vs Loki references, what I liked about the game is that it entireley used icon files for both character and monsters, so I altered the hero´s sprite into a custom semi-black and white Sesilou sprite.

you should give it a try, it´s challenging, there´s 2 parts, part 1 was freeware, you had to buy part 2 to get to the good part of the plot, but in 2006 the author released both parts as a freeware package, also if you were lucky and knew the guy, he could give you the source code of the game.

however, when I tried to use my custom icon file via the game´s menu, it never read it, so I had used a hex registry/resource to alter the player icon into my custom icon, fooling the game into believing my custom sprite was my default sprite, as an extra I can access other registry files to say: alter the dialouges or enemy icons, 

well considering it´s a very old windows 3.0 series game, altering it resembles a bit to rpg maker. just a bit.

Indeed. I can still remember Duke Nukem, the original side-scroller that reminded me of Commander Keen in certain aspects. I have many games that can garner my attention for now though, and going out to search for older PC games seems like I would be stretching my alloted time for games quite thin unfortunately.

If I say that I'm really looking forward to the new Duke Nukem game, am I showing my age, really sad or both?

Having said that I'm really interested in L.A. Noire, which sounds like it's right up my street. I'm interested in the 'crime-solving' aspect of it, which from what I've heard reminds me of the Blade Runner game, which in my opinion never got the credit it deserved. Extraordinary game.

I believe you mean Gum, and that is a memorable quote from the King of Ass-Kicking himself. I might someday give the game a try, but I haven't even bought some of the big games that were released when the Xbox 360 was launched, let alone kept up with games to date, and by that I mean keeping my game library up to date. The newest game I have is either Borderlands or Brutal Legend.

Started playing The Legend of Dragoon once again after not being able to play it for years. Maybe I'll finally get around to finishing that epic game. I'm also still playing Dungeons and Dragons Online, the most anti-social mmo in the world, and Vindictus, nexon's most epic mmo game available at the moment.

I've been playing RPG-based games heavily lately. Maybe I shall try my hand at other genres soon enough, I don't wanna stay in the rpg section forever XD

I haven't been playing much of anything lately, which is why I haven't been posting. I am still playing Drilldozer, quite a fun platformer.

I've played some Warriors Orochi, having gotten Xiahou Dun up to level 99 finally, and Dian Wei close to max level as well.

I've purchased MediEvil, Sly Cooper 3, and Summoner, for the PS1, and PS2 respectively. I tried Medievil, and although I find the story to be fantastic, something that could have been a Disney or Pixar film, the fact that it was practically a launch title for the system made its controls absolutely mood-killing for me. It's strange how the controls could have been so bad then, and yet so good during the NES/SNES era and the current era.

My friend at the flea market is currently saving a boxed copy of Ys 3: Wanderers of Ys, and Final Fantasy Tactics Advanced which is also boxed, so that I may purchase them at a later date. I am happy to know this person, as he knows that I am as avid a game collector as he is. Knowing game vendors who collect and know what to look out for is really a terrific pay-off if you wish to begin buying older games.

It's high time I come clean about my activities lately.

I saw my dusty ol' SNES crying in solitude at my parents' house and I thought "Oi! Why don't I take this with me, then?"

Now I'm on a huge SNES binge. There's a pawn shop a block away from where I work, which is DEADLY (I'm obsessed with buying things second-hand). I have to say, the SNES games are damn expensive. -_- Ones you've actually heard of end up being like $50.

I nabbed R-Type 3, F-Zero, Donkey Kong Country 3, Super Mario All-Stars, Star Fox, Super Valis 4, Herman's Huge Adventure, Secret of Evermore... that's all I can remember right now. I ordered Soul Blazer and Super Metroid off ebay, I am SO excited.

I have a tradition of waking up early on Sundays and playing Earthbound. Hehe.

You are very lucky my friend, a few of those are definitely on my list. I will be purchasing Ys 3: Wanderers From Ys for the SNES, boxed, for 30$ from my friend at the flea market.

I've begun playing Okage: Shadow King (which is funny because Kage means shadow in Japanese, and the O stands for king in Japanese, though it would normally be O-Kage, not Okage). It is a very goofy, quirky, and funny RPG, which reminds me very much of Earthbound's brand of humor. Your main character gets possessed by the Evil King Stan (Yes, Stan...), who believes himself to be an all-powerful and very VERY evil king, although he comes off as funny and strange. The dialogue of the characters is great, and is a strong-point for any RPG. Ari, the main character, actually gets to speak his mind a LOT during the game, which is all but unheard of in older RPGs, and you are given three choices. As far as I can tell, they are: Goody-Two Shoes, Pessimist, and Jack-ass, from top choice to bottom. And I LOVE the Jack-ass's responses. Such sarcastic, smart-ass remarks, I love it.

If you ever see this PS2 game in the Pawn shop Zatham, I urge you to purchase it. I bought it for very cheap, around 10 to 15 dollars I believe, so it should be a great addition to your game library.

Well if you bought Earthbound then it would be expensive. I'm happy enough with my SNES collection...FF4, FF6, Chrono Trigger, Donkey Kong Country 1, 2, and 3, Kirby Super Star, Super Metroid...and those are just the major titles. Lots more like Populous, Legend of the Mystical Ninja, Star Fox, and the much-harder-than-it-looks Toy Story.

I recently got Metroid: Other M and played through it. I'm very happy with that game. I even got all the items (much easier than usual because it marks the locations after "beating the game", and much better than Fusion because I don't have to wonder where the secret rooms are). My next conquest will be Chrono Cross, which I got for $15 at this awesome game store that just opened in town (it has an arcade and lets you playtest SNES games!)

I've continued playing Terranigma, I've beaten the first two dungeons outside of the inner-world, and have released plant life and birds. The next dungeon is in the Savannah, the animals I believe. I personally enjoy the game, but there are people who simply have no positive opinions on it.

sadly, the psp on the official side, is dead IMO, unless you enjoy homebrew and adventure yourself into modding, the psp holds nothing new.

In the end, according to blue barry, and a handfull of friends I know who own the 3DS, all agree that it has been a major letdown, so maybe I'll try saving enough cash for a PSvita.

I agree that Okage was poorly executed. I dislike that the death of my main character, while I have two members still alive besides him, AND I have many resurrection items on hand, still means that I'm Game Over.

I will still purchase a PSP (most likely a 3000 as it is what a friend who has it has recommended to me), because there are quite a large number of games that I wish to play on the platform.

Game collection-wise, my friend at the flea market that I frequent has gotten me a boxed copy of Final Fantasy Tactics Advanced for the GBA (which I believe is still good, although I can see why some people might not like it; the Judge rules make it more challenging. Then again, I can't respect someone who doesn't like a game because of difficulty alone.).I've also gotten a complete copy of Wanderers Of Ys III for the SNES, which I already owned as a loose cartridge, therefore we traded and I purchased it for 25$.

Miraculously, he had come across both Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island AND Super Mario RPG, for 45$ and 55$ accordingly. He has them both set aside, along with Donkey Kong Country: Million Sold edition (the normal red trim is gold), so that I may take them off of his hands when next we meet. I am VERY fortunate to know him, as I get most of my old NES/SNES games from him.

The Wonder Boy series was a fantastic thing for the Sega systems. Wonder Boy in Monster Land was the first one I played. There is a Japanese-only sequel to the series, which I believe isn't called Wonder Boy in Japan, that has a young girl as the main protagonist, and it looked very much like a sort of Metroidvania game. I will most likely purchase it from the game reproduction site after a fashion. I still have great games that I can purchase here.

It's awesome that you're about to get Yoshi's Island, Super Mario RPG, and Donkey Kong Country. I used to have Super Mario RPG, but my brother convinced me to trade it for Star Fox. I still have the other two. I've tried playing Mario RPG on an emulator since then but it's never the same, even if it's on a TV with a game controller. Actually, I'd say that was my first RPG; I probably subconsciously judge all RPGs against it. Maybe that's why I think random battles are stupid?

If you want to play some fun Metroidvania games, you can try these two free browser games I played recently: K.O.L.M. and Holdover (warning: Holdover has an animated teenage girl sometimes running around naked; check those hot pixels!). Short but pretty awesome.
