Who spends $500 to play a $20 downloadable game? I do, if the game's the spiritual successor to the Panzer Dragoon series. Fresh Crimson Dragon screens and a new trailer out of TGS seal the deal.

I get a little bit crazy when it comes to shooting things of dragon-back while riding through Roger Dean album covers. Crimson Dragon might sport a new name and setting, but it's every bit series creator Yukio Futatsugi's baby, and I want to have his baby.

Crimson Dragon launches on November 22, exclusively for the system I am acquiring for the purpose of playing it.
