The important news here is Rag Doll Kung Fu is free in the store, just for this week. Yay for not getting around to buying it. This is all a Sprint NASCAR sponsored deal (no luck for Euros), so you have to go into their section to grab it.

- Texas Cheat Em {$10} - Texas Hold 'Em with cheating. Eh.
- Zen Pinball {$10} - I might go for a $10 pinball game. There's a free demo to help figure it out.
- Bionic Commando Rearmed is cut from $10 to $5 for a week.

One of the forgotten entries in the series, since '98 was the first Dream Match and probably the best entry of them all, and '00 was SNK's big fan-service sendoff to the series before they went under. They started a new story arc, went a lot darker with just the way things looked, and it was their first stab at a few new things, some of which wound up being implemented going forward (strikers), and some of which we'd all like to forget (4-person teams). Is it worth $6? Absolutely. But you're probably better off shelling out $20 and hunting down one of the two discount titles they released recently for PS2 - I'd go with King of Fighters '98 Ultimate Match, which is probably the best version of any game in the series (having not played the '02 Ultimate Match released in Japan this past February) over the King of Fighters Orochi Collection, which contains '94 through '98, although both are great.

IGN gave this a 9.7 out of 10. ( If I wasn't working on two other games at the moment (and I'm playing about an hour a week at this point), I'd pick this up tomorrow.
