Works for me, more time to acquire the funds I'll need to build a new PC.

I took it and it was an oddly enjoyable experience.

In the past I rarely ever used public restrooms and after one terrible visual experience a decade ago I decreased that statistic to 0. Luckily I've pretty much fully repressed the memory of what I saw, I only remember that it was horrific, whatever it was.

I already own one and I pre-ordered on Amazon when it was listed at $100 and only paid that. /raiseroof

I actually own all my old video game consoles (along with games) but dragging them out individually to hook them up to a HDTV is a pain. I can't even hook up most of them as I only have the RF Adapter for them. So being able to hook something up via HDMI is pretty great.

I didn't have the issue Jeff seemed to be having getting it to recognize carts. I definitely had to re-seat games on occasion but it has been pretty good. I think something could be wrong with his console. His other complaints however I find to be totally valid:

- The controller that comes with it is garbage.

- Pulling cartridges out takes way too much effort, feels like you might crack the cartridge in half trying to rip it out.

- You have to hold the power button like 5 seconds before it will turn on. When I first got my system I thought it was defective for about 20 minutes before I figured this out.

- Would be nice if I could connect on the internet to update system instead of using SD card.

I just wish I could play Atari 2600 games on it but besides that I'm pretty happy with it. Being able to plug a SNES controller in and play a Genesis game (and vice versa) I think is pretty awesome. All the save state stuff is awesome. Being able to mess with options on the fly is great. It is definitely a cool product that would benefit from some minor iterations but the past few weeks I have been playing Shining Force and that is great.

I approve.

I'd love to see a bunch of donwloadable 8-10 hour JRPGs, that would be awesome. But nah, not all games. I enjoyed Stick of Truth's lean approach but I'd be severely dissapointed if Persona 5 cames out and it was only 8 hours long.

I think I remember reading a recent article that said there will be serveral self-contained DLC "episodes." I remember a moment in the game that sounded like they were hinting at something.

After you complete the rumor quest for the girls a few of them mention an upcoming slumber party. Wendy also leaves a message on facebook saying anyone who can read her message is invited.

Persona 4, often I forget that I never actually played it myself. The ER did prompt me to play Persona 3 though.
