SSS is as bad as the reviews say. It's fun for the first hour or two... but after that, it's all downhill. The staged levels (aka boss fights) are well done, but the random battle stages are terrible. Sometimes you'll get screwed just for having the wrong ship / gun combination.

If anyone's willing to pay for the game + shipping I can grab a copy of SSS. I dunno the retail price (either $20 or $30) but they were marked off 40% from there. Had a bunch of copies too.
For anyone that doesn't know, a whole bunch of Sam Goodys and Suncoasts are closing down and liquidating all of their stuff. Most of their video games were overpriced to begin with so there's no particularly great deals, but you might find something.
But yeah, other than the music, SSS is kinda not so hot. It's an amazing concept and I really have a lot of admiration for Wayforward in general, but they didn't pull it off well at all.
Neowave I'm kinda apathetic towards, considering it's just 2002 gussied up a bit. Aren't they adding some extra characters for the home release though? I mean, Young Geese is in there, and that alone sounds pretty cool.
The only thing new I want is Valkyrie Profile 2: Silmeria, and I have a bit of a wait for that. Well, I'd buy Chulip too if Natsume still has any intention whatsoever of bringing it out in the US, which I'm guessing they don't. I'll probably end up importing that eventually.
Everything else I want is considerably old, but I'm not on the look out for very much at the moment. I got way more than enough games already piled up.
