Bundle Of Joy

The PS3 has been doing a good job so far with bundling PS2 games. Especially since the damn machine isn't backward compatible... Yes, it's gouging and "HD" textures and slapped-on 3D effects don't really soften the blow. But if it gives people access to games that you can't find on the shelves anymore, I suppose that's better than nothing(or Ebay). And anything that gives "Ico" and "Shadow of the Colossus" renewed exposure can only be good for video games, and for people who enjoy them.

(I think there's also a compilation package for the older Metal Gear Solid games, as well as the God of War series, if those are more your thing.)

Boy, Snake's really let himself go...

And it's not just Sony, either. The entire "Mega Man Zero" series was re-released on a single cartridge for the Nintendo DS. I'm glad Capcom does that from time to time, even if some things are lost in the transfer(see: the Mega Man/Mega Man X Collections).

...Come to think of it, that gives me an idea:

Eh? EH?

Oh wait, I forgot. Capcom hates Mega Man X. Or more specifically, they hate Keiji Inafune(although not as much as he hates them). Why else would they ignore the single-most requested character for Marvel vs. Capcom 3, and troll us with Rocket Racoon instead? That DLC costume to make a completely different character look sort of like him is just cruel.

Speaking of companies who don't know what their customers want, here's another bundle suggestion:

COME ON already!
