But still, Spyro doubling in price is bullshit.
That's metal jesus' MO right there. He single handily turned a game called kim possible: what's the switch for the ps2 which was a shit 2 dollar bargain bin game into 15 dollars or more.

James and Mike made sky kid into a 50 dollar game when it was 10 tops.

YouTube ruined the retro game market and none of them are willing to take fault.

Classic Game Room did that to the Vectrex and the Gottlieb pinball TX Sector.
The Pin was already somewhat of a cult classic but a Vectrex used to run you thirty bucks at best.

Overhyping shit is good business for retro game "collectors" (aka flippers) I guess.

Metal Jesus' entire channel is "mediocre or okay games that I will greatly overhype to make you think you should start shelling out mad cash for a dead console or abovementioned mediocre games."

Remember that Bruce Willis game Apocalypse? I played it years after the fact and it was okay, but nothing like what it was supposed to be. Instead of a 3rd person co-op with a CPU Willis sidekick, you play Willis in a top-down shooter but the cut scenes weren't altered so he basically talks to himself because the other character was removed.

On the plus side, the game introduced me to Poe, who is hot and a decent singer.

Praise the lord and pass the bullets.

Although ff9 is my favorite, even that's faggit furry shit. :-/

Sony pisses me off with Legend of Dragoon too. They had this great chance for a remake or sequel and just refuse to address it. It's like they hate money.

Given the people who make up video game companies these days, they may in fact really hate money. Besides, do you really want a sequel to anything after seeing the fuck ups that are Mirror's Edge 2 and Beyond Good And Evil: Wigger Monkey Edition?
