I feel bad for Hydrophobia because I keep seeing it for sale for almost nothing. But then I realise there are plenty of less well-received games out there that never willingly drop their own asking price to a pittance, and I suspect the developers/publishers are more interested in getting people to try their game than actually profiting from it at this point, which is actually uncommonly awesome and forward-thinking of them. I seem to recall that it had something of a buggy mislaunch, received a lot of bad press and then couldn't get anyone interested in it again once they'd patched most of the problems a few months after the fact - something I feel might happen again with this SimCity debacle, once EA and Maxis finally admit that their silly "always online" fixture isn't quite so inflexible as they claim and drop it for the sake of whoever is still interested after all this awful word of mouth.
Talking of water games: Sink or Swim, SOS, Wetrix, Vessel, Puddle and, uh, Waterworld? You shouldn't have any problem building a whole season of blogs around these things; we're practically drowning in them. Or they're pooling around our ankles, at least. Water terrible torrent of puns I'm pouring out here for all to sea; I'm so washamed.
Obviously I've never played your SuFami game du jour, but I did find a complete list of SNES RPGs somewhere that I'm semi-curious to try out. I've played at least a bit of all the ones that have seen US/EU releases, but it's only about a third of what's out there. I ought to play Mystic Ark and Treasure of the Rudras at the very least, since I hear their fan translations are top-notch. Then again, I said all this about Genesis games a while ago and point-and-click adventure games before that, so I should probably commit to something already. I think for the time being it'll be watching the archives of that stupid VGCW show that Jeff and Intern Ben got me into.
