Last ex-GF's name was ZOE... Does not bode well for Mugen. Must have missed this while I was living in Japan, but with so many awesome JRPGs can't blame me.

This game was so stylish back on PS2, but I think everyone remembers it for having that MGS2 demo on it!
But enough talk, have at you!

I'll probably just pick up the regular edition, but it's going to be so worth it.

(nuthin to do with konami i know i just want it now)I'd like to see an Onimusha collection too, and as Capcom are the money grabbing whores that they are, and have already given us HD rereleases of Resident Evil 4/Code Veronica and Devil May Cry, I don't think it's entirely a pipe dream wink

As for ZOE... I only ever played the first one. Still have it for my PS2, and I may dig it out prior to the release of this collection to see if it can enthuse me towards getting it.
I vaguely remember the anime series being ok too, so I may have to track that down again.
