One more for my PAL PS2 Nippon Ichi/Gust collection:

Just one more to get now and I should have the whole set.

Makai Kingdom. I'm looking at between £10-£15 per game if possible and I managed to get lucky and snag Phantom Brave on a newly listed £10 BIN. It's in great condition too with the soundtrack CD etc. This is the list of what I already have so you'll have to let me know if there's one other than Makai that I will need :wink:

Atelier Iris: Eternal Mana
Atelier Iris 2: The Azoth of Destiny
Atelier Iris 3: Grand Phantasm
Ar Tonelico: Melody of Elemia
Ar Tonelico 2: Melody of Metafalica
Disgaea: Hour of Darkness
Disgaea 2: Cursed Memories
La Pucelle: Tactics
Mana Khemia
Phantom Brave

I'll have to consult my oracle, but offhand looks about right :)

I was going to get the PAL Ar Tonelico's but decided to go for the ntsc deluxe editions instead, they just look so good....as it happens i have the first one en route :D (astonishingly cheaper on ebay uk than importing) The second one seems to be a tad on the expensive side, mind.

Yeah, they do look nice. The NTSC version of the first game will be better too because the PAL localisation apparently has a hell of a lot of spelling/translation errors (but is still playable).

As for the sequel, you may want to research on the crippling final boss glitch. In the US version, the game will lock-up and freeze if you don't defeat the last boss in a certain number of terms. I think this was fixed for the PAL release so our version has something going for it (but no 60Hz I don't think).

Is the second one expensive now? I got mine on launch for something silly like £15 on Play.com.

Cheers for the heads up. I still want the nice big box and extras though :lol:

The PAL version seems to be around £30(ish) at the mo' but the ntsc deluxe version will run to about £50-70 (condition dependant) including customs/delivery. Just hope one pops up for sale in the UK.

That has really shot up. It used to be the original that was harder to get and more expensive while the sequel was relatively cheap.

Once I've got Makai Kingdom, I'll be focusing on trying to complete my NIS/Gust collection for the PS3. It's a much bigger set!

I've got a few of the PS3 games, but not many. Not something i've delved too deep into, tbh. How many we looking at?
