Ridge Racers - A very cool racing game with some really awe-inspiringly colorful and awesome tracks and an intensely awesome techno soundtrack. It has alot of retro bringbacks to the original Ridge Racer, is really fast-paced and really awesome, especially if you play it in first-person.

Ape Escape: On the Loose - An excellent port of the original Ape Escape. Gameplay is completely unscathed and it's nice to play one of the best platformers ever made on a portable device.

Sega Genesis Collection - Tons of fantastic gems from the Sega Genesis for really cheap. Shinobi III, Sonic 1 & 2, Golden Axe 1-3, Phantasy Star 2-4, etc... It's also a pretty good price nowadays for 28 games (14-25$)

So, if you're thinking of getting any games, I'd definitely recommend those three.

I was wondering, has any one played SSF4? For someone who only has ever played Melee and Brawl, would this be fun?

Both are outstanding games and offer pretty similar experiences, so either one would be a great choice. Ultimately though, Cave Story is one of the all-time greats so I have to say that one

I ended up getting Vanquish, and I'll get Marvel vs. Capcom 3 hopefully some time next month.

Who knows. Street Fighter is good for newcomers to the genre. Just understand that it's nothing like Brawl whatsoever. They're not even the same genre. Brawl is more of a competitive Platforming action game, Super Street Fighter is a 1-on-1 Fighting game. Perhaps you'll like it for what it is. I know I had no trouble getting into Super Street Fighter 2 despite having little experience with the genre.

Is Borderlands is any good? I don't know if I'll like it because I usually don't like RPG elements. I just prefer simplistic games most of the time. But even if I like simplistic games more, I doesn't mean I don't enjoy games with RPG elements sometimes. In fact, I was just checking out the review on IGN. I first saw the written review but didn't read it all, and I saw a screenshot that showed your inventory, and there were a whole bunch of weapons. One was selected and it showed it's damage, accuracy, fire rate, ect. under the image it said "If this screen isn't interesting to you, you might not like Borderlands." And I was actually interested. I watched the video review and it looked like an interesting game. Do you think I'll really like it, or will I be overwhelmed by all of the stats and all of the RPG stuff?

And I wish you the best of luck. It is, in my firm opinion, one of the greatest fighting games of all time.

The Diablo style elements just make the game more addicting since you'll be wanting to upgrade your specs and grab new guns as you go. Otherwise it is a pretty simple FPS.

^Everything I've seen and read points to Luminous Arc being a very standard SRPG. If you like that kinda stuff, and can't get enough of sRPGs, It's probably worth a buy, especially now that its prices are going down.

Should I get Marvel VS Capcom 3 or Radiant Historia?

@Estoiagamer

Crystal Bearers was a mess IMO, riddled with bugs, a bad camera, and questionable gameplay choices. I wouldn't recommend it. I know nothing about Darkside Chronicles, though.

@KanrakusPizza

You got any friends who play those? Battlefield especially is only fun with friends, but I hear they beefed up the singleplayer in BC2 this time around. Still having friends in Multiplayer that you can coordinate with goes a long way in increasing your mileage with both games.

Should I get Sonic Mega Collection Plus or the Sega Mega Drive Collection or both? I've never played any of the games in the collections, and they're both really cheap right now. Or should I just wait for the day that I get a PS3 (which might be never) and get the ultimate collection then?

Get Both. SMC+ Has a bunch of fun Game Gear games that weren't included in the Mega Drive Collection. SMC+ should be cheap to get nowadays, and I shouldn't have to mention the great deal that is SMDC, all in 60 Hz.:) I wonder if the European version of SMC for the Gamecube had all the great extras the NTSC version did?
