Got rare SNES games

Four of the Rarest SNES games and great scores on GameFAQs. Proud to own these. is better than Secret of Mana. Terranigma is better than Soul Blazer prequel. Terranigma got a 10/10 on some game sites like Tales of Phantasia is great 8.0 out of 10. All in English.


Bought Ibara: Sequel to Battle Garegga

I bought the most expensive Playstation 2 SHMUP available, Ibara. It got a nice score of 9.5 and I can play it in my Modchipped PS2. It was $150 and no region free Xbox 360 port! Shame on Cave for not making this beautiful game region free for 360 like others.

Cult developer Raizing could only lament the end of an era in the year 2000, when the team was folded into sister company 8ing and ceased producing its own games. Some time down the line, though, former rival Cave decided to bring Raizing bigwig Shinobu Yagawa on board for a new shooter, and Ibara (rose, thorn, or briar) was the result of this once-unlikely partnership. As might be expected, in many ways this isnt really a Cave game; its best-described as a spiritual sequel to Raizings iconic Battle Garegga. Once again the main keys to scoring (and, by extension, survival) are expending your bombs (which you must build by collecting shards) on specific score-rich targets, dismantling (and greatly angering) the bosses, and weaving through enemy fire to snatch falling medals. The games rank level, which bumps up the challenge, tends to increase quickly, and the only way to knock it back down a peg is to die, so youd better keep racking up those points (and resulting extra lives) if you want to last very long. What videogames should i buy, taking suggestions.


Bought Radiant Silvergun / Battle Garegga for Saturn

I had these off Megaupload (defunct) and they are very well designed Shumps for Sega Saturn, except I play them in the modded Sega Saturn. Sega Saturn has mod chip. These are expensive games, 130 dollars USD. Working Designs was supposed to publish Radiant Silvergun in United States in November 1998. They hadn't. Silhouette Mirage was published by Working Designs in 1998 which was a mistake. Working Designs could of even published Radiant Silvergun in US instead of stupid Magic Knight Rayearth!

Capcom was supposed to publish Battle Garegga for Sega Saturn in 1997. Capcom published 1944 instead. Battle Garegga is a better videogame than Radiant Silvergun, yet this is unknown. This is due to Gunstar Heroes on Sega Genesis, Ikarga on Nintendo Gamecube. Battle Garegga is supposed to be the best space shoot em up for 32-bit consoles.


Espgaluda, Mushihimesama, Space Megaforce, UN Squadron

I heard of these six years ago when Radiant Silvergun was still mentioned in Wisconsin. That was 4 years before the Xbox Live version came out. So I got the fourth and fifth best SHMUPs Mushihimesama and Espgaluda. I think it has something to do with CAVE. The sequels were region free on Xbox 360. I had Mushihimesama and Espgaluda on DVDR since 2009 and played them on a modchipped Playstation 2 since 2009.

I have no idea why Ikaruga was published by Atari, but Mushihimesama or Espgaluda never had American publisher like Atari. Beats me.

ESPGaluda has a basic shot for use when tapping the fire button, and a beam shot that slows your movement speed down, but does more damage when the fire button is depressed. Your hit box is small, which allows you to weave in and out of narrow holes in bullet patterns something that really makes a tough battle even more intense and rewarding. However, in addition to the typical Cave features is a special ability: the ability to slow down bullets with your ESP powers. When in normal mode, you collect gems for killing enemies. These gems are then used up when you switch to the slower bullet mode. While in this mode, any enemy killed will have its bullets turned into points (a way to really boost score) and you will automatically use a bomb if hit. However, if you let your gem supply run out in this mode, the bullets will turn a darker shade of pink, and the speed will be increased beyond that of the normal game.

I also found Space Megaforce, and UN Squadron and bought both for Super NES today. Space Megaforce was $35 and UN Squadron was $7. Space Megaforce is the top SNES game somewhere.

The British Rising Star Games is supposed to publish region free Mushihimesama HD 1.5 next year for xbox 360 slicing $20 off the price and ITS REGION FREE. No modchip PS2 required!

Wii U controller revision

think the latest Wii U revision where they have two analogue sticks near the top, is an improvement. Nintendo should copy dual shock and have the analogue sticks near the bottom.

Didn't Nintendo take any hints from Sega Dreamcast and Xbox's controller S doesn't work. The controller is not that well designed with analogue sticks near the top. They should be smarter than this unless THEY WANT Wii U to fail.

Dual Shock 2/3 is one hell of a controller, the best ever made. Nintendo is being STUPID!

There is 1000s of people on GiantBomb, you think that users would come up with similar ideas.

Your idea that the fisher price Gamecube controller didn't make the gamecube fail, it was just OUTSPENT by PS2. I remember people complianing about the fisher price controller and no DVD-ROM to play movies. The Panasonic Q was only released in Japan. The Dreamcast failed because of the 200 MHz Hiatchi Super4 CPU and 16 MB of RAM and no DVD-ROM. Dreamcast look N64ish so it wasn't the controller ??? I think it was the CPU, GD-ROM and Dreamcast controller made Dreamcast lackluster. The Dreamcast controller looked kind of like Fisher Price. The xbox controller was designed by Peter Moore, who was hired by Microsoft Game division from Sega Dreamcast divsion proving Xbox is pretty much a 'Dreamcast 2'.

EDIT: I cannot reply, there is a 5 post limit.


E3 2012: Wii U impressions

My favorite game for E3 2012 was Halo 4 with the FMV video kind of like Command and Conquerer 3! The graphics looked really good.

Nintendo needs a Dual Shock 2/3 for wii U than it's fine. I agree the games being dumb. Wii U needed a Mario Kart 8, Super Mario Galaxy 3, Legend of Zelda U, Super Smash Bros U and a Final Fantasy X HD. I tend to think that New Super Mario BRos U is old-school. I liked Space World 2001 a lot better, because it had Mario Kart Double Dash, Super Smash Bros. Melee, Super Mario Sunshine, Wave Race Blue Storm, and Metroid Prime in it. For my birthday in 2001, Nintendo had a Mall of America tour that I went too with all those games playable plus Legend of Zelda The Wind Waker. I don't remember the Nintendo 64 launch. I barely remember the Dreamcast launch on 9/9/99 at Toys R Us.

Nintendo better make all games compatible with Wii's classic controller since that controller is a lot better than Wii's nunchuck and wand.

I never cared for New Super Mario Bros. Wii or Pikmon, but I like Assassians Creed and Batman Akham City.

Playstation 3 and XBox 360 and Wii all feel more epic than Wii U and in that order.
