Liked the DJ Hero review. No way I'm dropping $120 for it but nice review.

So who does have the rights to publish Toejam and Earl? That's a damn shame, because that game was and is a classic and wholly unique game.

Edit: So Mr. Johnson, their creator, still holds all the rights to the IP? He talks about trying to find interest in getting a game published, yet is obstructing them from re-releasing the original? I can only assume that they either went over his head and tried to cut him out, or he's insane.

Sega also offered him "very little money" for their inclusion in All Stars Racing, and he turned them down. Hey, buddy, nobody's going to buy the game or not based on your characters. You don't get to bargain here. You take the small amount of money they give you, and you say THANK YOU.

Weird about ToeJam & Earl. I'm almost certain it's been on Wii's Virtual Console for years.

Sega probably owns the rights to the ROM.
