yeah phantasy star is fantastic but nigh on impossible without a walkthru, same goes for phantasy star 2, phantasy star 3 is just censored but 4 is great and stands up as being modern and user friendly enough to play without any help. PSO was fantastic on the dreamcast... but I dont own any of the n...

I'd guess it's easier to get an stepdown converter: http://www.play-asia.com/SOap-23-83-1tnb-71-fl-77-2-49-en-15-stepdown-84-j-70-1rl8.html Okay that sounds cool, but how does it work? Do you just plug the stepdown into the wall than plug the japanese ac ada...

Well, unless you have no friends... :shock: I think the funny thing is even if u were one of 5 people to still have a g7000 and all the board game bits...
