How did you discover this gem of a game?

  The games overt Japanese sensibilities instantly won me over. So when I saw the game at the Game Crazy in my local Hollywood Video I immediately decided to get it--I knew if I didn't get it now the only place I would ever hope to find it was on eBay for some outrageously high price. One of the best purchases I've ever made.

I don't remember how I originally heard about it, but it was right around the time it released, so I picked it up a bit after launch. It was the last copy the store had too O_O

I used to refresh Magic Box and GameWatch like a maniac and kept seeing Gigantic Drive and just kept praying and begging aloud that someone, anyone, would bring it to the U.S. Just about the time I gave up hope it showed up as RAD. I think I got mine at Media Play for a marked up price but I was so thrilled to see it I just jumped!
