Man, I just don't know if I could play Xenogears again without the Gameshark code that speeds up the text. I read very fast, and there's a LOT of extremely slow text. Without it, I never made it past the sand city. With it, the game gave me 50 great hours.

Still mad I missed the PA bundle sale last week due to my PSN issues. RE2 is attractive but I think I still own the disc copy.

Wow, Ys 1 and 2 for $25. Might not wait for a sale after all.

I'm buying nothing this week. I'll eventually buy Alien Breed: Descent (when it goes on sale) and Xenogears, but not yet. Next week, though, is PixelJunk Shooter 2, that game will have my money.

Trying the Yakuza 4 demo and the Dragon Age 2 demo. I'm debating about buying Yakuza 4 at launch because I still haven't played the second game, much less the third, but I want to support the franchise and make sure they continue localizing the games. Especially since Sega likes to mess with the US audiences on whether or not we'll get them.

I want Dead Money, but I'm trying to hold off for the eventual GOTY.

By the by, Kmart's got a great deal for Yakuza 4. Buy it in its release week, get $10 back... and a free Yakuza 3. Since I've only got 1 and 2, I'm sold.

Seriously? Damn, I still don't have 3, that'll sell me. Damn you forcing me to spend money! ;)

Is this online or in stores? I've got Yakuza 3, but if this is online, I'd be totally willing to turn around and sell an additional copy. I don't think there's a Kmart anywhere near me.

Homebrew-enabled PSPs can run PS1 games with gameshark codes. For my millionth Xenogears playthrough, I maxed all character's skills and levels from the start. Great way to replay.

I think I'm going to grab Lost and the Damned + Gay Tony bundle. That's a good price, I think.

I'll be grabbing that Dragon Age 2 demo, for sure. I am also tempted by the GTA IV DLC... but I think I much prefer physical copies.

Ditto -- any more details on this deal?

I believe it's only in-store. Kmart has deals like this on pretty much every big release now. Here's the CAG thread on it:

Kmart is a bit out of my way, but they make it worth it.

Who the hell makes a licensed game out of Days of Thunder in 2011?

Nobody even gave a shit about that damn movie when it was actually new, 20 goddamn years ago.

I'm buying Xenogears. Never played it and I've always wanted to so that's a must.

It's a wonderful game, and I really liked it. The only problem with it is the terrible, terrible text speed, that makes towns a chore. Some people also hated the Tower of Babel, which mixes somewhat challenging platforming with random battles, but that didn't bug me too much.

It's got a pretty serious JRPG story, though, the kind that we don't see much anymore.

The second disk also turns off a lot of people. It becomes clear they ran out of time and money to finish the game, so a lot of the second disk is plot summary. Every time I think about it, it makes me wish they could get a remake. The graphics were also pretty pixelated.
