Pretty slow week. Shame about Dororo, seemed Sega held back the game and really tried to make it something worth playing.

Aren't Oubreak 2's numbers a big step down from its predecessor?
I think so, although from most accounts it doesn't even deserve those sales. Also while I don't think it's ever been confirmed from what I understand File 2 is less a sequel and more Capcom cashing in by releasing the stuff that was originally cut from the first without attempting to address any of the criticisms of the first game.

Btw, the first has only just been released in Europe. With no online play. I hope it bombs, badly.

Should I wait for File 2 if I didn't buy the original Outbreak? Or should I just go ahead and get Outbreak. The reason I ask this is because I'll only be playing it offline.

Well, if Outbreak File 2 improves the load times and simply includes some minor omissions from the first game then I wonder if it's worth the effort. But if the titles are very dissimilar than I'll bite. I mean RE2 and RE3 different here.

From what I hear, you'll just have to wait for RE4.

Waiting for RE4 is easier said than done. And don't shoot me, but I rather enjoyed the new movie. And it only heightened my excitement for the series all over again.

Time for Nintendo to give away Cubes with every GBA sold, then they might build up a near-decent interest for their next console ...

I still say Japan would be an infinitely improved country and economy if they stopped wasting their lives on pachinko/pachislot.

It really is quite amazing.

Pachinko and Pachislot suck that bad?
Has anyone here played any of these console Pachislot games? What exactly is the attraction of playing them if there is no money involved?

No, but I've played the real version and it sucked ass. I can't imagine video pachinko being much better (unless you really love watching virtual ball barings drop along arbitrary paths)
