    Does anyone know anyplace reputable left that I can order this from!!??

    Buyrite games still has it for preorder but I have heard bad things. NCS, Tronix all have the preorders locked. I really want this one too but didn't take advantage of the pre-orders before.

    Any ideas?

    The Rage are good - I haven't used them too much, but they've got a very high rep & are very friendly etc.

    As are cartmart/VGD to be fair.

    Interesting news:
    (sorry if I am repeating old news)
    Ikaruga is coming to the Gamecube.
    My bro will be getting the DC version, and while I did not jump on the preorder wagon soon enough, it will be interesting to see what the 'improvements' on the NGC might be.
    Ikaruga on NGC would be necessity have to be a port, so the DC version would sport the best graphics... right?

    Not necessarily. It's a port to a "superior" piece of hardware. All depends how much care & time it receives, combined with what "improvements" it receives.

    Bangiaoh was similarly ported to the DC from the N64 - along the way it received some tweaks. There's a hardcore of fans that much prefer the N64 version.

    Interesting.. I remember seeing the comparison screenshots of Bangai-O (I have the DC version myself). I hope that contigent of hardcore gamers are basing that on gameplay tweaks, because the graphics on Bangai-O for DC were just amazing by comparison.

    I don't mean to stray off topic too much (it deals with import games and availability)... I've pretty much given up on ordering DC's Ikaruga, but I just started playing Shenmue 2 (European) and am loving it... I wonder how many 'added bonuses' the Xbox version will have.

    Was 100% gameplay tweaks + the difference in control systems, Joseph, not the graphics.
