Monster Farm Jump or Monster Rancher Hop-A-Bout, as it is known here, is not the highlight of the Monster Rancher series. Instead of creating charming monsters from CDs and raising them Monster Rancher Hop-A-Bout only hopping monster in a board game setting. Yeah? Well, Im content with not getting that as a PlayStation Classic here.

Strangely enough Sony Computer Entertainment Japan is beginning to release Western developed games as downloadable PsOne games too. G-Police, a futuristic shooter, was developed by Psygnosis before they became Sony Computer Entertainment Liverpool. Pop N Pop is also out this week which is sort of like Bust A Move meets Space Invaders with Taito cameos. As a little diversion Pop N Pop is pretty fun.

Heres whats out this week. Each game costs 600 yen ($7.50):

G-Police
