I think he did COD4 aswell.

Magical sound shower!

I dont know who composed it, but Oblivions soundtrack was absolutely stunning regardless of wether you like the game or not. Amazing.

I would love to play many of the games mentioned in this thread. Im still looking into a Japanese 360 Arcade. Rather expensive though. Im guessing the warranty is the same if it RRODs.

I forgot to add this to my list. Its a steep learning curve, but great once you get used to it.

DS is crying out for point n click compendiums. Not everyone can play SCUMM games on a flash card. There really is a gap in the market that needs filling. I totally missed out on so many classics.

Cracking start on that Treasure Collection. I really wish I could somehow play Guardian Heroes. Bleach DS is a great fighter, but Im not a fan of the style and its nowhere near as revered as GH. Bangai-O DS and Mischief Makers can be picked up for cheap, but Bangai-O 64 appears to be very hard to ob...

I need to pick up this console asap. The other day I drew up a list of classic DC games to purchase and play over the next few months. So many quality games on what seems to be a beautiful machine.

Damn you Sony!

Nes USB Controller

Ive seen a few nes usb controllers and usb adapters floating around ebay, and wondered if anyone had ever tried one. I want to play through some nes classics on an emulator, but the 360 D-pad is nasty. Anyone recommend a good pad? Are the nes usb adapters available worth a purchase?
