That's a good reason to select it, IMO. Stimulating discussion is the whole point.

Also, expet changes to how we handle nominations to TR next year.


Good. No one can keep up with 50 pages of thread, and TR doesn't really need to be a democracy. Votes are great for gauging interest, but that's it.

This is probably for the best. It is nice to feel involved in TR, but this nomination process was exhausting.

The "beer method" might be the best bet.

Space Harrier is out in 3D on 3DS this week apparently, if anyone is looking for ideas for what console to play that on.

I've noticed that you can unlock Space Harrier on Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection if you achieve a certain score in Super Thunder Blade. Problem is, I suck at Super Thunder Blade.

Actually, if I suck at Super Thunder Blade I'd probably suck at Space Harrier too, huh?

Thunder Blade is much harder and much worse than Space Harrier, and I say that as someone who dislikes Space Harrier.

For a much easier method of unlocking space harrier, follow these instructions:

1.Start Super Thunder Blade on hard difficulty.
2. Fly into the top right or top left hand corner and hold the control stick in that direction constantly.
3. Mash the fire button.


You're invincible here for the majority of the level. Your missiles will kill some enemies, giving you points, and you'll also get points for distances travelled. There are two point where you WILL have to actually play properly though.

1. When the midboss of stage 1 appears (the big tank) just fly in counter clockwise or clock wise circles endlessly and he will never hit you.

2. In the overhead segment at the end of level one, you'll need to play properly. This bit is MUCH easier though, and you'll probably reach the highscore threshold whilst playing through this section.

Easy.

For those of you with a modded original Xbox and a dislike for online play, there's a hack out there for Phantasy Star Online Ep1&2 that allows you to play the online quests offline just BTW.
