Video Game Ad of the Day: PlayStation Dual Analog Controller

PlayStation Analog Controller UK
Before the DualShock, there was the PlayStation Dual Analog Controller. Sony only let the Dual Analog rule the roost for about six months before introducing the force feedback enabled successor. The most notable differences between the Dual Analog and DualShock, other than the obvious lack of rumble, is that the former has longer handles, concave analogue sticks and a third mode to make it mimic the functionality of Sony’s Analog Joystick, indicated by a green LED in the middle of the controller.

Video Game Ad of the Day: Hagane: The Final Conflict

Hagane JP
Hagane: The Final Conflict is the poster child for so-called hidden gems that have exploded in price on the secondary market due to spikes in demand through increased exposure. The game is decent but not worth the $US275+ it seems to command.

Video Game Ad of the Day: Bubsy 3D

Bubsy 3D UK
Widely held to be one of the worst games of the fifth generation era, Bubsy 3D is a shining example of just how wrong things could go during early 3D game development. The developer, Eidetic, did eventually learn how to make good games in 3D – they went on to develop the Syphon Filter series and became a first party Sony Computer Entertainment developer known as Bend Studio.
