PS2: Ibara - Made by Cave but feels like Raizing, and its just insane. DoDonPachi Dai Oh Jou - Pure bullet hell bliss. Twinkle Star Sprites: La Petite Princess (doesn't do much that the original TSS doesn't but its still fun and far cheaper then any version of the original) Oh and the AES ROM versio...

I'm all for spreading videogame love to the masses, but there is just no quality. I don't even want to know how many FPS's have been released over the past few years as they all look the same. Also now that videogames are big business we have things such as SCEA's "quality control" :roll: that basic...

I don't plan on picking up a PS3 till at least a few years after its release. Price is a factor, but its more because I still have so many other games I still need to track down.

By some luck I was able to pick up a HiSaturn with VCD card off ebay for only $76 (shipping included) last week. So now everything I've been playing has gone on hold since I can finally play Lunar: SSSC (MPEG version) that I've been wanting to play for years. So far I'm really impressed, the cutscen...

This is actually a quality release if you want a perfect port of the original. It is, from what I remember, spot on. It really makes you remember how much they improved with Zwei though --- bad frame rate, and control... and the soundtrack is really bad compared to Zwei and Azel. Arrange mode is pr...

yeah I have to agree, the PS2's water effects do look like a downgrade from the Saturn original. Sega is really starting to piss me off with the quality of the Sega Ages series this generation. Sometimes they do a really nice job (Gunstar Treasure Box and Dragon Force) but then sometimes they just g...

Tales of Destiny 2 MAD Video Great footage of the crazy stuff you can do, this video is kind of old, but still great footage for anyone interested in the game.

Is this ToD2 Japanese, or Eternia? I liked the first one at a smidge over 30 hours. Fun battle system, although relatively easy. Is it about the same length? Yeah I have the real Japanese ToD2 for PS2. Its still the best Tales game in my opinion. Entire game runs at 60fps and is smooth and fluid. I...

How is this one? I've heard it is leaps and bounds over 2 and 3, which were definitely not impressive. Not only is there no roaming, but the whole crappy scaled characters against (admitedly ugly but) high res backgrounds just got to me. About how long is the game? I found the first one painfully l...

Pretty much your standard multi-path adventure game. Each girl has her own path, and some have to be completed before others due to plot progression and the difficulty increases by path as well. Game is divided into chapters, in each one you'll generally go through 1-2 hours of dialog, the important...

After playing such "classics" like Steam Hearts' and Advanced Variable Geo, I decided to take a look at what Giga was up to these days. I ended up with Baldr Force, which turned out to be quite a good game. Features a really fun 2D robot shooting battle system. Its quite customizable, and plays quit...

In my opinion ST3 is the best one. I thought 1 and 2 were kinda fun but they didn't really do much for me. (One big reason is because Iris just pissed me off so much) However I decided I'd give it another go and went with 3. Its hard to describe why, but 3's cast and overal "feel" just seem so much ...

Well my Japanese isn't that good, but from what I can tell the Famitsu for 4/14 came with a playable Growlanser V demo disc, with some intros and other extras.

Hi everyone!

Well, I've been a big Saturn/PCE-CD/PS1/PS2 importer for a while now, and I finally stumbled upon this webpage. Simply the nicest import fan site I've ever seen. Also its nice to have a board where you can talk about imports and not be considered an elitist prick *cough GameFAQs cough.* Anyway my im...
