Always wanted to play that game since it was released and after all those years I finally played it on MAME (it's coming to the VC I think) it's a great little game. Even though it was one of the earlier AES/MVS games it still looks good
Fantastic game indeed. Very hard though, imaging if Ghouls and Ghosts was harder and this is the result.
Ultimate Ghosts 'n Goblins for PSP is what you get ,or is it worse than even that :?:

Ultimate G n G is easier I guess. I've gotten further through on that than Magician Lord (though the golden rings hunt sucked). Ultimate G n G Kai is more on par with Magician Lord due to the limited continues, less health etc.
Both are very good games for their respective systems to.

But some like fifa 2008 and to be honest it is the best fifa so far , just a bit slow.
No. I wouldn't. I've never liked Pro Evo much and even Komami admit 2008 is a pile of cack.

I don't want nor Pro Evo 2008 or FIFA08. I'm still enjoying Pro Evo 6 online for while it lasts. I do admit to being biased towars Pro Evo but 2008 is an absolute disaster. You'd have to be the most fanatical of fanboys to say Pro Evo 2008 is still in the same quality as their previous releases.

It's obvious enough but I'm Woody Cool on XBOX live.

Anyway, being slightly new to this XBOX Live stuff, how do you add someone to your friends list??? :oops:
