That's all so dissappointing. Strategy games are really the only type of game I have the time or the patience for nowadays. And with that SF was a huge standout for me. I do like other titles as well: Front Missioin, Fire Emblem were a couple others I like but still SF is my favorite.

I have SF III for the Saturn which I would never be able to part with. Just loved that game. Great characters. Are there other SF titles that are available either for PS2 or PS3. Someone once told me they were available on Genesis Greatest Hits collection but never found it.

Also, any word of any new releases in production? Been away from any news on this series for years.

All Gundam kits added. Many bonuses with the bundle purchase.

Lower prices on others. Very negotiable. Items must sell.

Added a DS Lite Bundle!!!!!!

I'm also now LOOKING FOR Shining Wisdom, Shining The Holy Ark, Knight of the Old Republic (xbox), Chrono Trigger (DS) as possible trade items for something from my list of items.

I'm looking to buy a pony. Do you have any of those for sale?

Sorry, don't have any. If it isn't on the list I don't have it. However, I will be addding a ton of unbuilt Master Grade Gundam kits.
35  The Rest / The Bazaar / Re: FREE Final Fantasy IV DS or FREE GITS Special Edition_collections for trade/sale on: October 01, 2011, 02:15:57 PM
Actually, you still need to work on the prices for some of these. We're savvy gamers, we know when we're offered a good deal, and stuff like the Dragon Quest games and a few others can easily be found sealed for less that what you're asking for.

I am more than happy to adjust any price here. If anyone sees a title(s) they are interested in just let me know and we can try and work out a price or trade.

I added an original Xbox and a DS lite (virtually mint). Also added. Fire Emblem DS Shadow Dragon.
36  The Rest / The Bazaar / Re: RPG & ANIME Collection _lower prices_ALL NEGOTIABLE!!! on: September 30, 2011, 10:28:49 AM
If someone wants some item on the list just make an offer and I'll price gouge you.


Totally not called for.
As I've said if there is something you want I will try to work out a deal with you. We almost did work out a deal I just decided that I really am only interested in Gundam and even though there was more to the trade I wasn't really interested in the other parts. I also said I would work with people on money offers or trades. If you have something other to trade in place of the one anime set maybe we can still work out a deal or even cash with Gundam stuff. I'm open to offers and suggestions but to literary insult me is not called for. I would gladly welcome the opportunity to discuss other options to a trade/sale.

I have listened more to the new album (ADTOE) and I have to say I am more impressed each time I listen to it. I feel like it is DT of old with some new contemporary elements added in. No ridiculous angry screams. 5 minute guitar solos that don't feel like they gel with the rest of the song. Just a great album. Greatest song for me is Breaking All Illusions while the weakest would be Build Me Up, Break Me Down...it is that scream in the background that kills it for me. Actually, I was wrong saying no screams.
38  The Rest / The Bazaar / Re: RPG & ANIME Collection _lower prices_ALL NEGOTIABLE!!! on: September 30, 2011, 08:09:52 AM

If someone is interested in an item(s) I will work with you to work out a deal. Please make an offer and we'll see what we can do. If prices seem high tell me and I'll try lower it to what one can pay. Tell me the item(s) you are interested in and what you can pay. Thanks.


Not sure I really understand this. I don't really see the issue. If someone wants some item on the list just make an offer and I'll try to work with you.

Like many I'm sure...I was pleased to see CT coming to PSN...(never played this title. Somehow, missed it all these years.) What a let down now that it isn't available. Yeah, I really don't have the time for most rpgs but every now and then I try to play and I was looking forward to finally giving CT a try. Maybe soon it will debut.

I remember when BC&SL debuted and I listened to it and was so disappointed...still am after I've forced myself to listen to it thinking it would get better with age. It hasn't nor has SC. Actuallly, over time SC sounds worse now than when I first heard it. Both these albums just say metal with some progressive elements to me. And MP and JL screaming and grunting is just horrible. I'm ashamed to even play them because up until those albums all the others seem so creative and I was proud to introduce someone to DT because I knew how talented they were. Now, BC&SL and SC seem like any metal act with no magic. From SC my favorite track is probably Ministry of Lost Souls followed by...can't even think of the name of it but I believe it was the first track. That's really it for me on that album. BC&SL my favorite track (believe it or not is Wither. Beyond that track there is not one other one I can listen to completely. Not one song gels together. There are parts of them that I love...for instance, the slow part in A Nightmare to remember. Then it gets all thrash metal sounding. No thanks. Count of Tuscany, I thought was magical. The beginning few minutes is awesome then it gets far too fast and aggressive for me. Then I loved its ending. So again, love pieces just not the whole compositions.

I listened to Awake today and it still sounds great. Okay, there are a couple tracks where James' singing is anything but...for an example, parts of Voices(think that was the title, it was the second part of 3 pieces), there are moments when he sings beautifully in that song and then later in the same song he's screaming or sounding real angry. It just ruins songs in my opinion. There's a couple like that on Images and Words too. Still I&W, Awake and A Change of Seasons are probably my favorite albums by DT. I can get through the whole thing without skipping pieces or tracks.

Enter the new album ADTOE. Now a few more listens in and On the Backs of Angels is good. Build me up, Break me Down is okay or would be okay if it wasn't for that annoying scream in the background. Why? Why is that necessary. Take it out and nothing is lost in the song at all. The rest of the album is generally good to great in spots. The real problem I had and still have with DT other than the screaming at times, angry yelling and the generic metal junk is the overall sound. It sounds distorted. Awake and Images sound so crisp and clean and still a lot is going on in those songs. But it sounds so much better.

I know nothing really about making music but I know what sounds like art to me. Older DT (6DOIT and prior) sounds creative, inspiring, rocking and just pure art. MOST everything since sounds like generic metal. Only now with this album has my decision been swayed back a little more to the positive where I find myself saying "Okay, they are really trying to get back to their roots while still exploring new territory." But for whatever reason they still find the need to put songs like BMUBMD on a mostly well crafted album. Heck, I wouldn't even have minded another beautiful slow or slower song instead of BMUBMD. Is it possible to have a slow but yet long progressive epic song? Without 2 guitar solos for a total of 5-7 minutes. Maybe a ballad sounding song with an orchestra. A song that still runs 10 minutes maybe. I know JP is probably the best guitarist on the planet I just don't need to be remind every other song.

Recently, I have discovered other bands that seem more creative and inspiring (Touchstone, Seventh Wonder and even Nightwish). But I am happy that DT seems to be headed back in the direction I had hoped they would. I just hope they continue on this path and get more creative and loose even more metal weight.

Oh, and is it possible to purchase the instrumental versions to the new album without buying the dexluxe $100+ set? I would gladly pay around $20 for the original album and the instrumentals. Didn't BC&SL have a release like that for under $20? Thought they did.
43  Media / The Soundroom / Re: Mike Portnoy leaves Dream Theater on: September 15, 2011, 07:26:41 PM
I'm actually looking forward to purchasing this album soon. Heard some of it and love it while other parts I'm left with the same feeling I had with the last 3 previous albums...more metal less creativity. Breaking all Illusions is my favorite by far. The other long epic tracks just feel rushed and the tempo changes don't feel like the mesh right. Outcry is pretty good but the other 2 (forget names...oh one is Bridges in the Sky)...that one is okay I guess. I do like On the backs of Angels and I like all the slow tracks. So all in all this album is better than the last 3, but why does James sing so magical and emotional on some tracks and then they have to have a couple tracks where it is just aggressive and angry sounding? To me that isn't DT. It's DT doing what everyone else does. Going to listen to more after I pick up the album. Does anyone know if you can buy the instrumentals of all the tracks without buying the deluxe version? I don't have that kind of cash.

Finally got Front Mission 3 and I have to say the game is amazing. Sure the graphics are dated but the plot and characters are more than enough to carry the game. Customizing the wanzers is as complex as ever but nothing short of diverse with a wide array of options. A solid title and well worth $6. Are there any other titles like this one available for download?

Still waiting for Chrono Cross but who knows how much longer we'll be waiting for that one.
45  The Rest / The Bazaar / Re: Farscape_Suikodens_Wild Arms_Grandia_others_LOWER PRICES! on: September 06, 2011, 11:40:48 AM
More items have been sold. I have added a few dvds and the Farscape collection.
