How is Uk`s CEX so much cheaper than the Irish? Dead Space 2 here will set you back 20 Euro. Bayonetta for a fiver..sheesh...
I miss Rathbone Place.

Well, seeing as you can`t buy Wasteland officially I think it does qualify as abandonware. Alternatively you can buy "The Ultimate RPG Archives" from Amazon...quite nice old school RPG collection.

I liked Star Ocean, also Dark Void was pretty decent. And I don't care what anyone says, for all it's clunky controls, I really enjoyed Alone in the Dark.

Lost Odyssey - as an Immortal you get drawn into war/intrigue... more serious in tone (v.sad actually), turn based battles, must have.

Eternal Sonata - you explore land dreamed & inhabited by dying F.Chopin (don`t ask), traditional but beyond beautiful graphics, music by Chopin, semi TB battles, must have.

Blue Dragon - "kids" (so what) graphics style, super charming, slick & cheerful, TB combat, trad plot, and you can make monsters fight each other, grand!, must have.

Enchanted Arms - 1st on system with so-so graphics but great TB/grid combat, "golem" farming, and likeable characters. Bargain these days so also must have

Infinite Undiscovery - kinda fun but chaotic real time combat killed it for me...too infuriating. Poor reviews also...but probably cheap-o, so why not have a go.
These are the ones I played and/or finished

Based on research: also FF XIII- it wasn`t that bad at all, Resonance of Fate - superb battle system with guns, The Last Remnant for it`s battle system also (though allegedly better played on PC - bugs reported)

If you go for all the cards you spend a lot of time making time go faster while waiting around. It's that sort of game.
Chapter 6 is always rain.
To make it rain in other chapters you just have to keep sleeping for a day at a time until you hit rain. Best place to do this is Albireo Graveyard (because there's food there). Go there, sleep 24 hours, see if it's raining, repeat until it's raining. The graveyard is the one with Brian the insomniac in it.

No it's not rare and there is a sequel called secret missions of World War 2.

They are good games hampered by poor controls.

Check out the Arcade version as well, it's a big sit down machine.

For those of you going to Replay in blackpool one of the arcades on the seafront has this machine in it. Can't remember the name of it but it's close to one called Slots Of Fun (which I remember because it's got a mame cab thing in there with about thirty games on it - played a bit of Juno First on it a few weeks ago). The blazing angels machine might actually be in Slots Of Fun but I just can't remember. It was definitely near there anyway. Midway between the pleasure beach and the tower if any of you have a wander. Well worth a blast.
