I've had the first forever but never really got into it. To be fair, I never really gave it much of a chance. It was one of the first 1080i console games ever.

Rollcage is an awesome racing series.

Its beyond me why Sony chose to ignore it and releases wipeout after wipeout. I guess they didnt want my money that much...

With that said i got these:

Rollcage was Midway by the looks of the cover I guess that explains everything then.

I wish they had stuck with the english setting instead of doing the whole war thing. Not enough shows with that old magical setting anymore. I loved those growing up.

My buddy told me about Sherlock so after seeing that I needed more British Television. My wife and I haven't stopped watching Downton Abbey since we got it. So good. Too bad the 3rd series just ended here in the US. I was hoping we could catch up so we could watch it, but alas. A movie would be cool, but I am curious if they would even release it here. MSNBC reported that the season finale had the largest audience in PBS' history and was even bigger then some other top shows out here so there could be hope.

It was developed i belive by atention to detail and it was published by Psygnosis. I guess Midway published the game in the US, but im pretty sure the IP belonged to Psygnosis, wich was later bought by Sony and turned to dust, with the only remnant beeing the liverpool studio.

Ah! Psygnosis is a difficult one. One shouldn't blame Sony completely they owned a good chunk of Psygnosis since the early 90's and most of there games would never have been made without them I would say. It wasn't till around 98 Sony brought the whole company took what they wanted (i.e. Wipeout) and sold what they didn't to Infogrames at a later date.

So there is a good chance Colony Wars and Rollcage may well be at Infogrames.

Sony raped psygnosis. I loved that company through the 80s and 90s, made plenty of awesome games and even published a shitload of good stuff, and since sony bought them all they've done is F1 and wipeout. Thats it. Last colony wars game was 12 years ago. They'll never make one again.

Yeah, that's what they were going for during the holidays. I bet you get it for $40 or less by the end of April.
