Parappa 2 and Drakan reviews up for PlayStation 2. I've been playing a lot of bad games lately – mostly bad PS2 games. I hope THQ follows through with a copy of Dark Summit for GameCube.

I must be in the mood for 3D platformers, because I was reliving the heady days of Pitfall 3D when I was granted a copy of Maximo: Ghosts to Glory. Fun game, looks great, some agonizingly frustrating jumping sequences. Film at 11.

Enough small talk. Regarding Gamebits' presence on Syndicomm, I want to clarify that this web site and the availability of reviews on this site will always be a free service. Gamebits is a business that supplies content to print media; its online activities are not intended to participate in its income. It would be nonsensical for Gamebits to follow the trend of other web sites by restricting content only to paying subscribers; the Syndicomm service is simply a fun extension of this gaming site.

That said, Gamebits is offering a free video game to every person who subscribes to Syndicomm Online. We have 140 games available for nine different systems! As the time of this posting, any of the following games could be yours:
