Normally this would be a promotional piece where I urge you all to go read this review of the new Xbox Live Arcade high-def Guardian Heroes remake, but honestly that kind of direct promotion always makes me feel gross. Granted, I make some valid points, but self-whoring just isn't my thing.

So instead, I'm going to promote this Hardcore Gaming 101 piece on the original Sega Saturn version of the game. Given that the remake retains all of the content from the original, it's as applicable to the new game as my review, and the conclusion is the same: You fully, 100-percent ought to buy this game.

Especially since, by buying the $10 XBLA game, you can avoid the insane $200 markup on the original Saturn disc.
