We kick off this update with a confession. It was only very recently (after idly sifting through the comments on a Game Informer post about a Resident Evil anniversary collection) we found out that, despite not playing PS2 games, PS3 consoles still bizarrely support PS1 titles. Armed with this new knowledge, and the comforting convenience of playing PS1 titles with a wireless controller, we eagerly hit eBay in order to snap up some forgotten gems.
We came up trumps, certainly in terms of obscurity anyway, even if we can’t verify the quality. We added five games to the collection this time out, all PS1 games, and all but one being titles that we had never even heard of before, including a sequel to office favourite Flashback in the form of portentously-titled Fade To Black. The game we were familiar with in terms of its popularity is, of course, Vagrant Story.
The other dusty relics we unearthed on the auction site are The City Of Lost Children (based on a Jean-Pierre Jeunet film of the same name), Necronomicon: The Dawning Of Darkness and Vampire Hunter D. If you know anything about these obscure old titles, or can advise whether we scooped up retro bargains or paid through our collective teeth, don’t forget to sound off in the comments below.
