Jeanne D’Arc Impressions, Riviera PSP and DJMax Portable Disc Rewards

Two new PSP games popped through my door yesterday morning and they're Jeanne D'arc an SRPG and Riviera for the PSP, third iteration of the Wonderswan RPG. Too bad I didn't get any of the pre-order goodies. This particular copy came with an extra leaflet with the basic gameplay instructions in English. I only just found out that only...


Brave Story DVD Collector’s Box and Black Jack: Hi no Tori

And YesAsia packed in another sample of their new YesStyle site's "Love Passport" perfume... Guess I'll pass it onto someone else! Anyway, the much anticipated "Brave Story" movie was just released on DVD on Saturday and we just received our pre-order of the Collector's Box through the post this morning. It has English subtitles and...


DJMax Portable International Version, Phoenix Wright 2

Yes, two more games arrived today for my collection! Took a little longer to arrive than my last order with Yesasia.com (which was the Nintendo Browser), being a week instead of a few days but nevermind. Been waiting to play DJMax on the PSP! Here's a closer look at the Gyakuten Saiban 2 box contents. There's a slip asking for players to...


Tekken Dark Ressurection

Just received my copy of "Tekken Dark Resurrection" from Gameplay.com this morning and this game is impressive (for the PSP, of course)! Gameplay's smooth, short loading times, great graphics and plenty of modes to get through. Being able to download Ghost data off the internet is just another great thing that adds to the...


Freedom to Hunt, Monster Hunter Portable

Well, just got my copy of the game on Monday but haven't had much time to play it. The graphics are impressive so far apart from the inventory screens which, is just a bunch of very small 2D icons instead of 3D representations of items. It's good to see gear changes are reflected on your character, though! Something I find missing in many...


Legend of Heroes VI: Sora no Kiseki PSP Version

I just had a play through the PSP version of ED6 and the port remains true to the original PC version. I noticed they added in a few tweaks though such as the random title screen image and the animated loading screen characters from SC. Things feel just a little bit cramped with the smaller res... Yes, I'm a fan of Falcom games so I imported...


Final Fantasy Soundtracks

Well, I finally decided to grab a copy of the FFIII soundtrack (DS version of course!). The opening theme song and the Black Mages remix of "The Final Battle" were just too good! Thought I would purchase the FFXI OST too while I was at it because I liked the music in that game so much. Not to mention it reminds me of how much time I spent around...


Sega’s Brain Age v Nintendo’s Brain Age, Impressions

Yay, just got my copy of Sega's Brain Age from Play-Asia today, 4 days from dispatch! Apart from the usual sticker and coupon, there was a playable PC/MAC demo of "In the Groove" packaged with it. Maybe I'll try the demo later... I find Sega's "Nounenrei: Nou Stress-kei Atama Scan" (meaning, "Brain Age: Scan Your Brain for Stress") much...


“Survival Kids” and “Trauma Center” for the Collection

It was pretty hard to find a new copy of "Lost in Blue" (as it's known in English) because it seems to be sold out everywhere in the UK just like "Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow", apart from the Amazon Marketplace or Ebay. Then I found Foxy.co.uk was selling it so I put in an order. I never shopped with the site before so I checked out reviews of...


Nintendo Browser Impressions and a Little Surprise from YesAsia.com

With the long lines for a computer at the univsersity library and little desk space when you do manage to get one, I thought I would try out the DS' Nintendo Browser and put in an order at YesAsia.com. The package arrived around a week later after putting in the order and there was a little surprise in it when I opened it today... They sent me a...
