Grandia was mainly ignored by the masses for the crapfest that is Final Fantasy 7/8

Sure i saw it on PSN at christmas - may have to download to the PSP if so. I remember the reviews saying about it being pig ugly but good - I dont mind the graphics , I prefer them to the very polished FF's. Plus I have spent waaay more time playing grandia than I ever have FF - I went for Vagrant Story from Square after finishing grandia , using the bit ugly but good fun theory that made me choose Grandia (and my ex wife)

Clearly there is nothing crap about Final Fantasy 7 or 8.

Got a boatload going out tomorrow as well, decided to do a carboot and get rid of as much excess as i can. Doing Col's carboot at Himley if anyone's over that way, and wants to say hello. :D
Finished Ghosthunter, very good game with stunning visuals. Pity you play on an LCD though to spoil the experience! :P

Bit rubbish when 240p doesn't display though.

It's why I opt for my Official AV-Multi SCART Sony PlayStation 2(TM) RGB SCART cable. :lol:

Comp cable is just the official PS3 one.

SCART through my 15kHz Amiga monitor reminds me of how bad it looks on my LCD though. :lol:

I may well get one of those RBG cables...i have machines fighting for one set of component inputs :) Always nice to have the option anyway.

There is a stunning looking Sony 21'' 4:3 Trinitron in my local cash gen. It is a video combi but it has a flat screen and looks mint. Only £19, was very tempted.

Would be a nice upgrade from your widescreen CRT. :mrgreen:

I'll be looking out for a 14" Trinitron to shove on my PC desk soonish - dedicated PS2 screen for when I'm sat at my PC. :lol:

After realising i had a whopping £25 store credit in gamestation, i used it all up on a copy of Metal Gear Solid Snake Eater 3D which came to £15.
I better make a start on all these 3DS games because my library is getting larger each month.
I asked for orange. It gave me lemon lime!

As I say, for my desk.

Good job with the PS2 HDD btw, it's nice for the stuff it works with. :)
