Is there anything in-store for you?

Nothing for me.
OT (slightly), there is a free dynamic theme (US Airforce) on the US PSN. It isn't very dynamic but it is free.

Thanks Andy.

I have a few of the titles already as Martial Arts/Beat-'em-up/Fighting Titles are one of my favourite genre(s), but I have avoided "Revenge of the Wounded Dragons" due to cost until now.

I used to play "Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection (Online)" every evening until the early hours of the following morning, but have not done so for quite some time. Maybe I'll find some new challengers over the next few days

PS. The "Kane & Lynch: Dog Days" (Single/Multiplayer Demo) is also available to non-PlayStation Plus subscribers today too.

BFN,

If Mortal Kombat 2 is playable online I will get it later, any knowledge on this?

Final Fight is tops. If anyone buys it please hit me up for some co-op

In that case check out the soundtrack which the composer uploaded for free - I just wish that they weren't so short...

Purchased SF2THDR last time it was this price and was worth every penny. I do enjoy fighting games but the problem is my thumb wears out quickly on a D-pad, and as I learnt SF on the SNES I just can't work with the analogue stick!

The review of "Mortal Kombat II" at UK.Gamespot.com seems to indicate that online play is available...

I might get SF2THDR too - something else to use the arcade stick with. I bought a cheap(ish) one from Amazon, and it is great for a lot of the PSN games - Final Fight, 1942 and Marvel vs Capcom 2

Street Fighter 2 Turbo HD Remix for me, cheers

Hmm i got Rag Doll Kung Fu from the US store last year when it was on there for free, question is if i buy the Time Savers pack for it will it work with it, are the US and Europe versions different for 79p its worth a try ill give it a go when i get home

Cheers OP

That's a good price for Tekken DRO.

It won't work.

DLC must always be from the same region as the game it is for.

SuperEd

Yeh thought as much cheers for the heads up though

Sorry?


Ha ha I thought the same. The number of times I said that line in my head trying to make sense of it.
I just put the comment down to a little too much sun or perhaps a Porterhouse blue.

Bought Final Fight for £3.99, never would have bought it at £7.99
Remember to press Square to switch over to Magic Sword, which is a far better game than Final Fight. They should have named it Magic Sword: Double Impact

What you mean press square. Is it two games in one?

Ta

I went for Final Fight, that'll have me pumpin' my fists for a bit

Yeah, Final Fight Double impact is Final Fight and Magic Sword. At the top of the main menu it says Square button Swap Game. You press that to play Magic Sword instead.

So you should be!

I went for final fight as well.

I didn't get where I am today by reading.
Here is a video review by the Classic game room guy...
Final Fight
Magic Sword
PS. Don't forget to catch the awesome Demon's Souls review by the same guy.
Edited by: "Andy@XCite" 22nd Jul 2010

And this review for Magic Sword youtube.com/wat…0pU
I swear that a lot of people won't even know they've got the game, the menu system completely hides it's even there

Many thanks fp, weighed myself in with Final Fight then went back and pulled the trigger on SFII.

I'm now buying on every update it seems!

Grabbed Double impact.

Used to play Final Fight on the Mega CD and £4 is nice for a bit of nostalgia. I'm sure i'll get a bit of use from magic sword as well.

Really like the way you can play the game on a simulated CRT with the scanlines... it at least keeps some of that retro feel rather than everything being super smooth and ultra clean.

I'm the opposite. I was looking forward to it in proper HD and widescreen. Just looks like a cheap and nasty port how its been done. £8 is a mickey take, and £4 is a bargain. Never played magic sword, so looking forward to that.......

It's not a cheap and nasty port, it's exact emulation of the arcade games. You can go into the options and turn the cabinet off and turn other screen effects on and off.
