    Ok, this will probably be the reason that I get a GC to go with my Xbox & PS2. All I have to say is that I'm glad I got the component video switcher...

    My favorite game in a long time - it's the reason that the DC will stay in my system for a long time. Wow!
    Also in EGM this month, they printed a rumor about SoA 2 on PS2. While I'd really want to see a true sequel, the GC version seems to have enough new for me to buy it...

    The EGM rumor was that the PS2 port of SOA (the original) was canned to focus on SoA 2 for the PS2. I'll believe when I see it, but the GC version is an 'enhanced port' - new character and some tweaks probably. I'll buy it for that. plus, it would be cool if they hooked in a GBA portion to take the place of the VMU minigame of "Pinta's quest"

    I thought that Overworks was doing a sequel on the X-Box?

    Ah..fantastic game on the DC and should make a great title on the Gamecube.
    The added character looks interesting. I still haven't beat the entire game on the DC (Ill have to work on that).
    Oh and I love the airship battles[​IMG]

    Haven't beat it?? I guess I don't have too much room to talk - still have to beat Grandia II on my DC (I think I'm mostly there...)

    It is a great game on the DC. My only complaint is the number of random battles when crossing the south seas at the beginning of the game. I would certainly be interested in a sequel.

    The other thing I found annoying was that you'd here it's acces the disc RIGHT before the random battle. You learned to dread that sound... [​IMG]
