Rayman origins is awesome.

Rayman 2 was good for its time but is meh by todays standards. You cant really compare the tightness of the controls on a 2D game to the ones on a 3D one.

I actually wasn't going to buy it, but after the disaster that was the SH release, I figured I should get the original version just in case.

I don't even normally like platformers that much, but there was something about Rayman 2 that just gelled with me. I can't say enough good things about it.
i loved rayman 2 but origins takes the cake by a far margin, imo.

I heard that most of the games that you buy are $5 or less. Is that true? Because if it is true, then that might explain how you are buying so many games.

Not all of them. Most range between $5-15, ususally ranging around $8-12. Sometimes I get lucky and find stuff I'm looking for for as little as $2-4, depending on what it is - like Rollcage and all 3 Colony Wars games or both Project Gotham games and Prey for 360, when they want to get rid of stuff.

Koudelka and Growlanser were $20 each, but that's the cheapest I've ever seen them. Especially Koudelka.

This chain of stores I shop at is locally owned, and I have no idea how they charge so much less for games than Ebayers do.

They had a copy of Misadventures of Tron Bonne there for $90, which is *insanely* cheap for that game, as it usually goes for $150 at least.

I might get it when I get my tax return.

Growlanser II and III are a pair of fantastic games, Urushihara Satoshi's artwork is so nice.

It's a pretty strange game but still a good game made by Grasshopper no less.

I almost forgot to add that I bought this DVD with the expectations of thinking that this "special edition" was going to have something SPECIAL, but it only had the regular DVD stuff in one disc. There was no need to call it that, and I double posted instead of editing what I said on the last post by accident.

I won an ebay auction for Three gamecube games. Super Monkey Ball. Star Fox Adventures, and Rocket Power. Got it for a cool 99 cents plus shipping. No box or books but it came in a cool box that neatly holds all my gamecube games plus I really only cared about the games so I'm very happy. Especially at that price. Already got them in the mail and tested them. Actually feeling like I had a stroke of luck.
