Wow that's actually really good especially considering it's guaranteed to come with a nice case and manual. Thanks for the heads up, I'm biting at that price.

Yeah Gamefly has done me right in the past. I was a little weary at first, being that these are probably the most used you can get, regarding buying used games. BUT so long as the laser can read the disc (i.e. check the disc!) you are getting amazing deals.

I've gotten a handful of games from them and none of them have crapped out on me. I got them all for much less than the going rate for used games go for too. You are definitely gambling a little, I think, but it usually pays off.

To be honest, regardless of nostalgia. If the games were aimed at younger people then the storylines should be simpler. That is if all kids really cared about was seeing cartoon characters and spamming attack buttons all day. Which to be honest, was what the first game started out to be.

But thats no excuse not to have a complicated storyline. You remember when you were young and you were watching a movie and you were amazed by all the flashiness and colours of the movie? And then, now that we're all grown up everything within the movie starts making more sense? Then realising that what we adored so much was crap and cheesy. Or evem possibly growing to appreciate it alot more than we had in the past.

Regardless to say, just because it does contains disney characters and brings back a form of nostalgia, does not necessarily mean it has a bad storyline and bad gameplay. It has one of the most complex storylines and fun gameplay to come out of any recent SE title.

I thought they only thing they took out was the genie guy. And they replaced him with Frank West, which is a huge trade up.

They took out the animated cutscenes, the story, and tons of unlockables and the music is all changed also.

The only thing they really left untouched was the Voice Acting, which is still all Japanese which a huge surprise to me.

The endings to each character is crappy art work that goes really stupid slow.

these are the real endings to the game.

They even took out Roll's theme song from marvel vs Capcom!!! I just find it weird that they even changed their character's songs not just the Tatsunoko's music.

Thanks again DS for recommending Metroid Other M off Gamefly. Shipped fast, was in a brand new case with a full set of booklets, and the disc was in pristine condition. The thing looks like I just took the plastic wrap off it. They are having a blowout sale on the 22nd and I will definitely be there.

Hey it's the best I could do given the circumstances. I have no PC at the moment and I can't find the charger for my real camera so I had to use my crummy iPod camera. Blame Steve Jobs.

All that bothers me about that is swapping the music. Animated cutscenes, story, and unlockables mean little to me in a fighter.

However messing with the music is a big no no. They really changed the Capcom character themes? Does Capcom not own the rights to the chun-li theme or something?

That is literally the worst thing I have ever heard. No reason to ever play the US version then.

Bought Inception, Tokyo Godfathers, Golden Sun DS and I bought a movie poster size print of this picture.



Gonna put it on my wall. Classy Bayonetta pictures are pretty damn rare.

Dr. Bombay, I don't understand that poster. Why is Bayonetta walking Amaterasu from Okami? They are different companies SEGA and Capcom. Plus a god would never be leashed.
