European VC and PSP Update: Hanabi Festival Fizzles Out Edition

Last year's Hanabi Festival finished with a massive bang in the form of the awesome Sin and Punishment. So we've got another awesome import N64 game that justifies the price hike and keeps me going for months right? Nope.

Game 1 - Gley Lancer
Sega Mega Drive - 900 Points

Its a shooter, it looks like something I'd play.

Game 2 - Digital Champ Battle Boxing
Turbografx-16 - 700 Points

Yeah, the Turbografx has gotten a lot of love out of this festival but its a bit of a shame that the games uploaded have been kinda poor. I have no idea what this is by the way except that its a boxing game.

Game 3 - Star Parodier
Turbografx-16 - 900 Points

PARODIUS!! Some top cute-em-up action right there.

So that's your VC lot, we're back to domestic releases next week with the occasional import. Also I think the race is on now for who's getting Earthbound first. In the meantime there are 2 games for your enjoyment on the PSP store.

Wipeout Pure has gone platinum and downloadable for a nice 15 so if you don't have that yet its a good time even though you'll probably find it cheaper on UMD. Then there's some damn fine unintentionally hilarious cutscene action with Command and Conquer: Red Alert, purists might scoff at the PS1 port of an RTS but I like the PS1 version of this game.

Oh and don't forget to load up the Wii points, WiiWare Europe launches on Tuesday.

njsykora is pronounced like this.

Yeah it would be easier if it were spelt njsikora but it doesn't look as cool does it?
