it's based around the PSX version.....that ruins it right there.

what's wrong with the PSX version other than its on the PSX?

PSX remake: No random battles, plot tinkered with.

The GBA version doesn't have an overworld map to explore, which is sad considering the original's awesome world design.

I bought it when it first came out. I was expecting a remake of the SegeCD version, but with better graphics. Oh, how I was wrong! I haven't finished it probably because I played through the original, and I don't think I'll finish it. I still think the original was better. And yeah, the overworld map in the GBA version was a big letdown.

it can play VCD (mpeg) clips even if it's not a standard VCD

what else would it be?

for example

I download some MPEG videos off the net (such as movie or game trailers) and burn them on a CD.

I put the CD in my DVD player and it plays it like it would a VCD

if its an MPEG file anywhere on the disc, it should find it.

you can have it in folders, with other misc formats and it doesn't care

same goes with MP3s or JPEGs

pretty sweet huh?

They probably aren't conveniently located and called xx.mpg, if you know what I mean. The files are there, and they may be mpeg, but that doesn't mean your DVD player will magically know which files are which. You could find them yourself on a PC, put them on a CDR renamed. Also, IIRC, there were more than one version of Lunar for Saturn, as not everyone had a VCD card. Unless that was another game I was thinking of, but I thought it was Lunar that had one version with higher-q videos that required the VCD card.
