I had heard that Sony removed certain games for purchase from PSN, but this is a bit too far IMO. They may well have their reasons, but to remove them from your download history too?

It's still one of a dozen that I haven't played yet (aside from testing)!

Another new Euro release date for an RPG, this time Blazing Souls from Idea Factory (formerly released on PS2 and 360 years ago in Japan). Rising Star are at the helm of this release once again :)

Anybody know where to pre-order it from? I imagine this is going to be a very low-key release indeed.

Spotted in a crack converters today Bubble Bobble Evolution for £3.99. No idea whether this is a decent price or not, but seems pretty low and love a bit of bub and bob :D

i've played this on my brother's PSP and though I'm not a Bubble Bobble expert, just judging it on it its own merits I didn't find it a very good game. ( If you love the original, it might seem even worse. )

It's about par for the course pricewise, 2nd hand I've seen it about 4-8 quid depending.

But, as a fan of Bubble Bobble it's hard to say what it's "evolved" into, other than a mess of a game that'll make you weep! :(

Best thing to do is play the original through emulation on anything from the humble speccy right through to the GBA version. :D

Have you got custom firmware on your PSP, JD? I honestly think you'd love the emulation side of it. I found it surprisingly easy to install and set up once I'd looked through a couple of tutorials online :)

I shall PM you with some handy/links info soon. :wink:

It's honestly really easy to get going once you've got the hang of where to copy all the files on your memory stick. The files take up hardly any room either, so even if you've only got a 1gig memory stick in there, you should get a fair amount of retro gaming goodies on it. I've only got SNES, Mega Drive, Gameboy, Gamboy Advance and NES emulators on mine at the mo, and another that runs most Capcom CPS-2 games...there's Master System. PC-Engine, Neo Geo and others you can get too. :) Even a Speccy one. But I use my DS to play Speccy games on. :wink:

Has anyone pre-ordered Fate/Extra CE from Ghostlight? I was very tempted as it came with The Fate/The Facts book, although the price is £39.99 compared to £26.99 at Play.com, although this extra book is obviously not included.

Yes I pre-ordered before I knew about anywhere else doing it as I didn't expect it to be available from the usual suspects.

Does anybody know where to pre-order Blazing Souls Accelate from?

Also, I read yesterday that the American release of Grand Knights History has been canned :( . Is a Euro release still on the cards does anybody know?
