Meta Review: Castle of Shikigami 2 – Dreamcast, PS2, Gamecube, XBox

Castle of Shikigami 2 (also known as Shikigami No Shiro II) naturally originated in the arcades and was later ported to the Sega Dreamcast (in the series of late shmups that kept the DC import scene alive), Playstation 2, Nintendo GameCube, and Xbox. The game was released in Japan for each of those mediums and […]

Meta-Review: Street Fighter Anthology – PS2

The Street Fighter Alpha Anthology has hit the streets and is ready to give 2D fighter fans a retro fix on their PS2s. While SNK has been quickly putting out a number of its old titles via emulated compilations, Capcom took the time to create fully arcade-authentic ports for the PS2 resulting in a very […]

NEStation Mod – Upright NES With PS2 Style

The NES is definitely one of the most popular consoles to mod. Over the last year we’ve seen a number of things like an NES turned into a PC, and NES DVD player, and much more. However kotami, one of France’s (if not one of the world’s) premier console hackers has put together one of […]

Panzer Dragoon for PS2 – New Screenshots and Info

Back in July of ’05, I mentioned that Sega was working on a graphically enhanced version of the first Panzer Dragoon game (originally for the Saturn) for the PS2. Since the original was a great game, but had rough graphics, I was very interested in this upgrade. Today, Famitsu magazine released some new screens of […]

Meta-Review: Namco X Capcom – PS2

Namco x Capcom is a game that has quite a hardcore buzz around it. We still haven’t heard any news on it coming out of Japan, but I know for a fact that it would sell well if it did. I believe Namco is making a huge mistake if they do not export it. This […]

Megaman X Collection Released – PS2, Gamecube

The highly-anticipated Mega Man X Collection has finally been released here in the US. I personally suck at the games, but I know there are a lot of Megaman fans out there (hence all the games). The compilation is being released for both the PS2 and Gamecube (I guess XBox gamers aren’t much for Megaman) […]

Vol. 25 of the Sega Ages 2500 series (aka The Treasure Box) for the PS2 will include Gunstar Heroes, Dynamite Headdy, and Alien Soldier. (Read more about these games on my original post). I’ve just learned of some […]

Meta-Review: Dragon Force for PS2

Radiant Silvergun and Panzer Dragoon Saga aren’t the only Saturn games that command a high premium on eBay. Dragon Force was one of the best RPGs on Sega’s 32-bit system. Fortunately, Sega is re-releasing Dragon Force on the PS2 with enhanced graphics and sound (without butchering it like many of their other updates). The remake […]

Twinkle Star Sprites -La Petite Princesses – Opinion and More Info

Piyokun shared a nice little bit of information on one of the games I’ve been keeping an eye one — he says: “I bought the Twinkle Star Sprites -La Petite Princesses- for the PS2 but I haven’t opened it yet. Did you know the original SNK and Saturn game is unlockable? .” It’s some good […]
