1. Just different clothing and personality types is all that I can discern. Though you can play as a woman and they likely are weaker.

2. Nope. But you can change his hairstyle/color. And you can buy him/her new clothes just like you can with a Barbie doll.

3. Easy at first, frustrating later on due to the excessive wind, just like I pointed out.

Panorama Cotton for the Mega Drive is kinda fun but is no match for Space Harrier! I wouldn't pay an extraneous amount of money for it when I could simply play the ROM.

The ROM is messed up.

But then again why buy ANY game for ANY system when you can ALWAYS download it for free?

Well, I tried it last night and it seems to work A-OK.

The answer: Because it enables you to play games which you'd probably never have the chance to play otherwise. Even though I've seen you argue in the not-so-distant past that playing a ROM isn't the same as owning the real thing, I don't believe that you're completely against playing a ROM. After all, it's not like you've got the actual arcade cabinets of Space Harrier or Rastan sitting in your house. In my opinion, if the emulator is in good working order, it's basically the same as owning the actual game, and I couldn't care less if the sound is 98.53787% exact.

Several reasons, including supporting game companies you like (which, btw, you're not doing by purchasing on eBay or anything similar), increasing interest in a specific series/genre, and helping the industry to survive. Oh, and of course owning the games you like at launch.

I don't have that one nor anything to play it on. I have a DS, but I don't like how that plays GBA games. Kamui079 what game are you talking about?

Oh yeah I keep forgetting about that. Hopefully my Gamecube hasn't been crushed flat by the 600lbs of dust that has collected on it.

Yes, there is: Special Edition versions. It's pretty lame, though, when companies release games and then several months later release the same game with added content. Whenever I purchase a game which I consider 'important', I tend to also get whatever strategy guide is available, or the best one, because it makes it feel more complete.

I did review a Genesis game. A bunch of 'em! Were you referring to Comix Zone? I don't have that one.

Strategy guides are for people who can't beat a game on their own.

I have the strategy guide for Animal Crossing Wild World. But they didn't tell me how I can beat the game. Did I get ripped off? I don't even know how to fight the last boss? I'M SCREWED!!!
