Well I’ll Be Damned

Shenmue II for Dreamcast box art

Ya know, I often give Electronics Boutique a lot of flak. Especially when it comes to their lame trade-in values, in which they give you $1.20 trade credit on a game only to turn around and put a $49.95 “PRE-OWNED” sticker on it. However, they’ve finally done something really cool that I just got wind of.

Due to such a large number of orders by american gamers for a european copy of Shenmue II from EB’s UK website, all North American EB’s are now taking pre-orders for the game. For $59.99 you get a copy of the european Shenmue II plus a “converter” (most likely one of the many boot discs that you can buy on the web) that allows you to play the euro-disc on your american Dreamcast. The game ships on the 19th of this month and you can place your pre-order online HERE.

Fatsquatch

Discovered as a young 'Squatchling in a Pacific Northwest woodland area in the mid-70's, Fatsquatch was soon domesticated and introduced to the fledgling arcade scene, where he became addicted to the magical sights and sounds of gaming. As years passed, his addiction only worsened, and eventually lead to his desire to write about all things gaming from a veteran point-of-view. Hence, Fatsquatch created The Jaded Gamer in 2001, and set about leading it into permanent obscurity.
