You're taunting me, aren't you? :P

Also, it was a pretty god deal, I'd say.

The boxes I bought didn't come with styrofoam though :(

Where the heck would I get them from? I don't see any auctions for just the styrofoam on eBay.

Why no WWE Allstars? Its a great game.

I've been meaning to pick it up, but I just haven't gotten around to it, yet. Originally, I was waiting out a sequel, but since the studio that developed it got the ax, the first will probably be the only one we'll get. :(

Is Puke a playable character in any of those? And if so...does he puke?

Droz was in WWF Attitude and WWF Wrestlemania 2000. While he doesn't have a puke taunt (IIRC), you could rename him to Puke in WM2K. He might have also been in No Mercy and the PS1 Smackdowns as generic create-a-wrestler parts. To be honest, I don't know if I've ever used him in a video game outside of the week he was paralyzed.

I'm planning to track down a complete super famicom after the holidays.

Are you wanting to have the hardware itself or just the ability to play Japanese games? If it's the games, all you need to do to play Japanese Super Famicom games on an American Super Nintendo is remove two otherwise-useless plastic tabs along the back of the cartridge slot and you're good to go.

Also, for those that don't like to mod their original hardware, a game genie can easily be modded to act as a pass-through adapter :)

I gotta ask, why buy Gundam UC on DVD? I know it's a little bit cheaper, but it's still a lot of money. At that point you might as well just spend a little bit more and get the Blu-ray version.

It's not a little cheaper, but a lot. Try $5. :P

Also, have you seen the prices for the blus as of late?

The DVDs can be found for really cheap, and I believe they come with 2 episodes. The Bluray equivalent is like $50-60 per episode, so you're looking at a 1:10 or 1:20 ratio.

Exactly. The way they distributed a single episode per blu was just ridiculous. At least the DVDs include 2 episodes per, which is a much better value to me regardless of how much better it could possibly look on the blu.

Last time I looked it was like ~$35 vs $50. I didn't realize they put two episodes on the DVD releases, though.

Why did you buy Steel Battalion? IGN gave it a 3 and I caught the episode of Xplay were they tried to review it but it was so broken the guy couldnt even really do anything. That being said, the one for the original Xbox was sweet.

Only one that's still around $35 is Vol.1.

But yeah, the two DVD parts contains 2 episodes each, so it's way cheaper in comparison.
