I remember discovering a card duplication glitch in that game that would give you extra copies of any card you own. Ordinarily I would consider this cheating, but in Forbidden Memories I call it "evening the odds."

(It's in the Star Chip Usage guide in GameFAQs, if anyone's interested. It requires two memory cards, unlike the obvious method that requires three cards.)

Fuck Widepread Ruin.  Now I kinda want to play it again.  I cant remember if I traded it via Goozex back in the day or not.

Good old Goozex (not the garbage it was before it closed down). Traded a bunch of PSX games and early PS2 titles to get later PS2 titles and some other stuff....Helped me play many RPGs when I didn't have too much money to be buying games often.

And EVERY SINGLE OPPONENT topdecked like a motherfather. If you couldn't stop a Gate Guardian or Meteor B. Dragon on your first turn, you were at a severe disadvantage.

Was this the thread where people mentioned they liked trophy images that combine to make bigger images?

I think I saw a Star Wars Battle Pod at a Round One arcade in Odaiba when I was in Tokyo in May.

 

Didn't get a chance to play it but it was similar to the Gundam pods.

Had to use the Twin-Headed Thunder Dragons, only way to win

 

That and praying to Slifer

 

Shoot, I completely forgot about the Twin-Headed Thunder dragons.

 

They carried me far before I could get my Meteor dragons.

The Round 1 in my city has a Star Wars Battle Pod (no gundam ) and it was amazing. Pretty expensive though. Lol

I wonder if the Round 1 by my house has them now. Haven't been there in months.

 

I would love it if we got the Gundam pods in the states. I played it in Shinjuku and I've never played a mecha game quite like it.

That's neat. Too bad more games didn't do that. Good use of the space.

Hopefully Criminal Girls 2 gets localized as well....I honestly think it will since NISA seems to be running out of stuff to release....come on NISA give us Great Edo Blacksmith....

I wouldn't mind if NISA released more Kadokawa games as well, but it would be nice if the difficulty and level design and such was a bit more improved as well.  Hey, we'll all know soon enough anyway.

 

Then again, I would be plenty happy with a slight discount on EO2: Untold at this point and to just figure out what to do with the other games and visual novels coming out this year.

There are some nice titles and prices to choose from at GameFly right now.  8 Empires is 17.99 and free shipping, Guilty Gear Xrd and Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright are 14.99 (they might have 2.99 shipping though)...

 

Just what I wanted to say after I said "figuring out other games and visual novels" right?

FYI, Guilty Gear Xrd is also $17.99 w/ free shipping, and that's only for the PS4 version.

haha no way, silly guy.   A bunch of us bought it and it's sitting on the shelves though.

I played some of Paradox (the first game). It's a similar dungeon crawler as Mystery Dungeon/Curry God, but the maps are all extremely tiny, with a ton of VN cutscenes.

It's adorable that people complain about censorship and act like they're actually going to play the game. We all know it's just going into their backlog for all of time

What are the chances we see a Shenmue 1 + 2 collection release in the next couple years?  It's gotta be like 75%, right?

 

I had all my Dreamcast and PS2 games stolen while I was in college.  A few years later I threw out about 20 empty DC jewel cases which I'm really regretting now.
