    Let's see how this goes  :-)


    If you happen to see a good or even questionable bargain, especially if available as an import, let everyone know.  With the lack of region coding, the DS is perfect for it.  Even if it is in Japanese, hell, don't let that stop you as I have built myself quite a good collection of Japanese titles.

    Share  the love  :-)

    Here is a Japanese title that is a bit of a novelty I believe.


    product info

    Shipping at US$ 4.90
     


    Slide Adventure: Mag Kid
    NintendoCompatible with Nintendo DS™
    No Region Protection
     In stock, usually ships within 24hrs
    List price: 
    Special price: US$ 9.90 (~12.83 AUD)*
    You save: US$ 49.00 (~63.50 AUD)
    description
    Follow the wacky adventures of Mag Kid as he slips and slides into enemies while solving puzzles. Use the slide controller peripheral to make a stand for your DS and slide it around a smooth surface, making Mag Kid move around the screen with it.

    Apparently, no language issues as it is almost entirely image based.  It requires you to move the DS as it has a weird little periphereal.  I understand that it is more a kids game, but it could be a cheap and novel piece of fun..  It is a one week special at Playasia.  I am both tempted and curious.

    The Target I work at has either Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time or Ring of Fates on Clearence for like less than $30 I think. It's one of those 2, thats all I remember.

    I was going to make a post a few days ago telling you guys about this awesome DS deal. Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword for the DS was on sale for only $12 new at Amazon, but then I noticed there was only 1 copy left so I stopped myself from posting it.

    It is times like this I wish I had access to American game stores  :-(

    I can only rely on online stores that ship at a reasonable cost.  I would SO pick that bargain up (it's still only $25 Au).

    Not only do the Poms beat us at cricket, but they also have good games cheaper.  Sucks I say - I would get that as well ($26 Au, where the cheapest I have seen it is $50).

    Should I be shocked that someone with "Valkyrie" in their name would pick this up? Dont feel guilty: i haven't popped it in either, and it might be a while before I do.
