glad i still have my original copies. Not getting this anymore.

I don't see a single thing they did that is a negative.

I can understand the feeling behind not wanting something to change, but it's unfortunately something that has to happen. I too get disappointed when I see a blurred/edited WWF logo from Wrestlemania 3, or hear somebody other than Pink Floyd on WKRP's Thanksgiving episode. But when something has legal issues, or is cost-prohibitive, it means exactly that.

I was gonna ask what brands are actually in the game, because I couldn't remember any. And just the fact that I can't remember means that if they were there they weren't that important.

Skipping the remaster as well. The sound a Dreamcast makes while reading discs is an important part of the experience.

Glad I have my spindle of CD-Rs that is also the entirety of the Dreamcast library.

My Dreamcast had trouble reading discs, so I had to stack another disc on top of the game. That somehow helped.

Man, this is bringing back memories. I spent so many hours and batteries on Chao Adventure..

To be fair, they only mentioned "Coca-Cola" being "Jet Cola" in those versions with no mention of other brand-name changes.

I kind of just want this thing to come out and people including myself play it and maybe see it's not that great a game. I've been burned by nostalgia a few times already and I feel it will be happening again here :).

It's not that we think it's a fantastic game; every game has its flaws, and this one certainly does. But it's still decent as a game, and what people love about it is the story, the characters, the charm, the collecting, the forklifts, and the living breathing community.

I didn't know that was possible.  I wonder if that would work with my 1 ps2?

Dont see a problem when the brand names are probably too expensive to license out, especially for just a remaster

If anyone does have a spare playasia coupon, could also use one for Bullet Girls.

I didn't know what all the fuss was about for Gotta War, but having played it recently, I highly recommend using the coupon and trying it out if you haven't already. Instantly shot up to my top 5 games list.

Gotta War.
GOTTA WAR!
GOTta War!
GOTtaaaa... waaaaaaar.

It doesn't have quite the impact it would have had if I was there in person, but this will at least give you an idea of what it would have been like.

Just putting out to say Hapymaher is now out from Mangagamer. I've started playing it, and it's unique compared to VNs I've played recently. Somewhat more dark than usual, and not just happy go lucky time. It's a strange beast, but alright. Still taking a bit to get to my first ending. It has good graphics and music and story seem alright. I'll give more impressions as I finish routes.
