I first learned of Ikaruga through Maddox's rave review a while back. He tends to exaggerrate, but golly, I agree with everything there. I though I was the only one who hated football games. Then I saw the good things he wrote about Contra III and concluded: this man has damn good taste in video games! I guess great minds think alike:-)
I've lurked here, downloaded kiken's videos and concluded:
1. Ikaruga has damn good sound, music, gameplay, and explosions.
2. kiken is the man, and has set a fine example. He plays Ikaruga even better than I play Contra.
3. I deserve a little graduation present. I'm buying Ikaruga for Gamecube.
My question for you is where can I get the lowest price on Ikaruga for GC? Online or otherwise? Wal-Mart, Kmart, Blockbuster Video, and BestBuy don't have it. Know where to get a bargain? Thanks a lot.
