The only tracks to feature vocals do use the English voice talent, but there aren't any words—She just sings some "la la lala" stuff. The Japanese versions were the same (no words), we only changed them so that the voice would match the US actress.


Thanks Belisarius!

Thanks, dude! That was a quick response... (Also, big thanks for not obnoxiously telling me to read through all the pages for said answer! :applause:)

Wargamer is correct: It is not the "Naughty" box—just the standard edition of the game, with a mousepad and pillowcase shipped along with it.

Also, you're welcome. :)

Groovy. Your checkout text accurately communicated the contents, then! This Xmas ROCKS!!!! :lol:

Is Nostalgia any good? $15 is a decent price.

I heard it's pretty bland. Not into 3D sprites myself though. If you actually like RPGs, I'd probably day go for it at $10~$15. If not, I probably wouldn't bother.

I started playing Nostalgia and just went "ehh..." after about five minutes. Maybe it gets better, but honestly I wasn't about to risk my time on that.

I'm tempted by Last Rebellion but I have a feeling $13 is still too much for the quality of that game.

Saw a few DS games of interest at Costco--$15 each--earlier this evening:

- Ivy the Kiwi (mentioned many pages back, I think)
- The Wizard of Oz

There were a few bajillion copies of both titles, so I suspect they'll be pretty easy to find; then again, Costco sometimes works in mysterious ways.

I'm surprised Bladestorm has gone down in price like that. The game went down for a while after release and then shot back up to the $60 range.

I'd highly recommend the game to any of the Koei fans out there.

Looks like alot of recently released Mastiff games are the DotD which I've never even heard of.

http://www.amazon.co...&pf_rd_i=468642

Reload looks cool, but I've been spending way too much one games lately and I'd have to pay shipping.

This game is excellent! I paid $20 for it when it came out and have never regretted it. It's a good budget title and if you like puzzle games you really can't go wrong with it.

Whoops; I just checked this thread (where I found Ivy), not the whole forum. My bad.

After debating it over and over...decided to bite on the Atlus "Legend of Y's I & II". I've been looking for the DS game but could never find it new only used with everything missing include the soundtrack CD. And I was hoping the PSP chronicles version would be coming out but after a year, but maybe not. Anyway, it's on Amazon now for $19.59 (Hubbagames) but I'm hoping it comes with the soundtrack. After two years I think...finally purchased it.

The problem with Ys I & II on DS is that the traditional Ys control (bumping into enemies in combat) has been restricted to the stylus control. If you control using the D-Pad, you are limited with the new method of swinging a sword, but there's no range with the attack using this method.

The PSP version (scheduled for release on 02/15) will be more spot on as Falcom is doing the port themselves from the updated PC re-release. Enjoy the DS version though...it's quite rare until recently that the US has even seen this series released here. I know I was grateful to Atlus for releasing it....

Thanks Joe for your post. I actually canceled my order from Amazon (usually they process it so fast, but managed to cancel in time) after reading what you posted and then reading the Japanese reviews for the PSP version. I would rather have Falcom doing the port more than anything. Thanks again!

Not sure if we'll get a soundtrack with the PSP version though. Hopefully we do, similar to "Y's Seven".
