Loved the first game so can't wait to get stuck into this one.

P.S. If anybody is interested in my other copy then PM me. It's the game (complete in box with manual) and the OST disc in it's clear sleeve. Just missing the outer card sleeve.
Did you manage to snag the Luminous Art book as well? Quite a nice little freebie. :D

European although I've been used to importing a lot of DS games from the US/Canada. I guess that will change now. :|

No because this is the PAL Ltd Edition. I think it's only the US version that got the artbook (jammy gits). I'll look at picking up the book on it's own from ebay at some point since I've seen it being sold loose before.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

Actually, Cauterize found the same (french) copy a bit ago and posted it on RetroCollect iirc. Was before you got internet again though ;) Here you go:

They put God Hand and Okami in the same box.
Are they mad?
Heh, well, and they're selling it for a SRP of 20 EUR too ;) There's also a double pack with Killer 7 and Shadow of Rome. Madness :D

Ah, didn't know there was a PAL Ltd Edition. I bought my copy with freebie artbook from Canada.

That the PS2 version? Gameplay's spot on but I don't like how they've messed with the graphics and presentation. Lucky they got it right later with The Orochi Saga.
Yea its the PS2 version, agree graphics are off a little, but like you say, the gameplay is there, and slowly getting used to it (never been a big SNK/NEO GEO fighter man apart from the last blade games) .

On 11 and Neowave you can adjust the filtering and all that to sort the visuals on PS2. Can you do it on KoF 2000 too?

1000 pages! Nice job, fellas. I post on many other forums and rarely have I seen any long running threads reach this far. :)
