well, the PS2 is not dead to ME yet because i'm the guy that waits to buy a game until he can find it used or at a really good price (last game i paid full price for was probably the first Midnight Club back when i first bought my PS2 oh so many years ago) - even if i buy new these days, i look for a bargain (bought Spider-Man 3 when it came out, but got it for $50 instead of $60 - the extra $10 i saved does not make up for the heartbreak that is that game... but another time).
anywho, picked up 2 more games i've been trying to track down for the PS double tonight - Grandia III and Samurai Champloo: Sidetracked. i've been meaning to pick up Grandia III ever since i heard it had a killer combat system (even if the story is a little lackluster) and for some reason or another i'm on a huge RPG kick as of late - so i'm looking for solid PS2 RPGs. Samurai Champloo i picked up because i played it at PAX last year and thought it was fun for a hack-and-slash. that and i liked the presentation and art style... and i'm a fan of the anime (even if i haven't had time to watch them all yet).
Grandia III i got for $19, Samurai Champloo for $11. not too shabby.
still couldn't find my most wanted game at the moment, Odin Sphere, used anywhere, but that's to be expected since it only game out a few weeks ago. wouldn't mind a copy of The Darkness and Overlord as well (both for the 360) but those just came out this WEEK, so i can wait a bit for those. lord knows i've got enough to play.
