It's alright, not a patch on the more well known stuff obviously but a nice hidden gem for sure.

For me it struck a chord, I've always liked Yu Gi Oh and similar games, it was kind of a cross between that, Pokemon & Dynasty Warriors

Got three copies of Monster Hunter Tri in PC World for a total of £29.91. Kept one, giving one to a pal as a present and have already traded in the other to pay for my ASDA shopping!

Picked the original Need for Speed on PS1 up for 99p; went through all the charity shops but this was all I could find. I already have the 3do version but as I don't have a working pad I can't play it! Odd to think that this was one of the first games to go for realism whereas the later series is about arcade style Fast and Furious rejects

I went into town looking for one of the SSX games for PS2.

Couldnt find any anywhere but did buy Darksiders for 360 (which was also a censored to find anywhere)

Wow! what an awesome game and i love the little nods to Zelda in it.

I chanced upon a copy of Soul Nomad last week. This game seems pretty rare, though I don't know for sure since it has a fairly unmemorable piece of packaging that I may have missed on my many brief perusals of game store archives.

Played a bit of it and it seems a bit like Ogre Battle crossed with Advance Wars-type battle "animations". Not a whole lot online written about it aside from Hardcore Gaming's Nippon Ichi page.

^ How much did you pay? It seems to go for silly prices at some places.

Really?

I paid about $35 cdn, which is about the price of a standard "new" game around here (games like Final Fantasy XIII actually was released in stores here with a $60 price tag initially), though higher than what I usually pay for games (usually about $20, give or take) I assume the NTSC version is about as rare as the PAL version, but this is one of the few Nippon Ichi games I don't really know much about or what the value of it truly is. I just knew it was somewhat hard to find.

To be fair, I haven't looked for it at a massive number of places, so that could be it!
