Tsukiyo ni Saraba US$ 12.90 ASIA

Not bad if you don't mind the Asian version. Hell I might pick it up because it's so cheap.

Is this the same as the one I would pick up at the local EBGames? I just want to be sure, because for ~$23, I'm interested.

The Japanese Pac-Pix DS is on sale for $29.99--but it does not indicate if it would include the Pac-Man Stylus or not. If it does, I'd probably get it. Hmmm.......

I just picked up Star Fox too. OP, I think you should change the title to the games that are on sale so more people will know that Star Fox is cheap.

Question is, should I wait on it until it ends up as a PC title, and therefore $15 GGC'able? Most of the reviews I've seen of it have been pretty "meh".

its got a long time to go before it drops to PC status since it only came out in Feb.

I heard it was great with the flying missions but the rest was not near as fun. Kind of like Rebel Strike in a sense

The game does look fun to play even though the reviews weren't that great. I don't think Nintendo drops games onto the PC line as fast as everyone else. Mario Kart DD isn't even a PC game yet.

Time Crisis 3 is tempting, as long as a US Guncon works on a Japanese PS2

Accessories are universal so the Guncon 2 would work. It works on my Japanese PS2 also.

I definitely have to stay away from Play Asia as I've made another order today (both orders totalling over $200+) but the bargains are sooo good that it's hard to pass up. I picked up the following with my order

Project Altered Beast $29.90
http://www.play-asia...4-j-70-dvt.html

Tsukiyo Ni Saraba $12.90
http://www.play-asia...4-j-70-h1e.html

To be totally honest I played Tsuliyo Ni Saraba already downloading a copy of it off a newsgroup and was having a blast playing it. Think of a Japanese inspired action game with a lot of gunplay and kung fu.... The camera is a little quirky but it's definitely worth the price)

Shinsengumi Gunrou-den $19.90
http://www.play-asia...4-j-70-bs6.html

I've been anxious to try this one, simply because Sega is not going to be bringing this game out here or in Europe and I'm hoping it might be like Blood Will Tell. Character designs are done by the artist from Rurouni Tenshin if that means anything to someone :). I haven't read much about this game, but stare at screenshots (heh) so if anyone wants to know how it turned out, just PM me or I'll post it in the PS2 board..

Psyvariar 2 Ultimate Final PS2 $39.90
http://www.play-asia...4-j-70-b5u.html

Very good shooter that originally came out for DC. They also have an XBox version on sale for $19.90 as well, but the PS2 version comes with a bonus DVD with demonstrations of competive play, so I decided on the PS2 version instead...

and last but not least

Tales Of Symphonia Gashapon (Full Set) $14.90
http://www.play-asia...4-j-70-522.html

I'm a sucker for Gashapon (the PSO sets rule!) and since I'm not trolling the streets of Akihabra everyday, I figured to add this to my display case as well...

Starfox is one of the worst games this generation. I honestly wouldn't even pay $5 for it, as I felt ripped off after I rented it.

Um, or not.

I picked up the game back on its launch date and I don't regret it one bit. Sure the game isn't as amazing as it could've/should've been, but I still had a blast going through it.

The 1 Player mode consists of flying and on-foot missions and I thought the story was actually quite cool. The flying stages are lots of fun and the on-foot stages, while not as great as the flying stages, are fairly well done too.

However, the main selling point in my opinion is the amazing multiplayer mode. My friends and I have spent endless hours playing the game and unlocking all the hidden modes and character (Peppy Hare). Its one of the best multiplayer games I've played in a while.

For $20, DEFINITELY pick it up. I will say that the 1-player game is quite short (can be beat in a few hours), but the multiplayer more than makes up for it.

It's a fun game once you figure it out. Took me a day or so, but now I'm getting a hang of it. Plus there's almost no chance for a US release, so why not?
