Panzer Dragoon Orta is final entry in the Panzer Dragoon series and one of the many exclusives released on the Xbox by SEGA. The title retains the style of the previous SEGA Saturn entries, but expands the scope of the gameplay with multiple Dragon forms available to the player at any moment.
The Undead Syndrome is a bizarre trip that would make anyone question why they’re playing it. But giving the game even a short bit of your time will leave you with an experience that has an unforgettable presentation and atmosphere… for both the right and wrong reasons.
As with any DLSite game, you can find the game here.
Yoshi has had it rough. Most will point to Yoshi’s Island as the pinnacle of the series. But even with excluding the puzzle games, there’s one other game I think every fan should spend at least some time with.

It’s easy to forget about Spectrobes as it had a fairly short run before puttering out. While sales whimpered with the final release, it did go out with a bang.

Mega Man Legends is the series first foray into the 3D space. The title came out in a fascinating time as many developers were trying to get their bearings in a 3D world. Mega Man Legends fails in some areas, but also impresses with its ambitious design and variety of gameplay elements that go well beyond what the series’ past formula.

Final Fantasy IX, the last Final Fantasy for me to sink my teeth into, for now. It’s the final release in Final Fantasy series on the original PlayStation, but encompasses everything the series had been to that point.
Unfortunately, while the game is available on PlayStation Network, it has yet to be updated to HD, leaving it definitely one of the most pixely 3D Final Fantasys.
