    Buy Slitherlink and Picross DS.

    Ouendan 2 is now less than $40? You'd be stupid not to buy it now.

    I'm pretty sure you can just click the referral link and then search for whatever items you're looking for from there. Thanks much! :^:

    Everyone and their moms need to buy Ouendan 2. So delicious. I'd also really suggest DJ Max Portable 2 for any music-game-loving PSP owners. I have it and it hasn't left my PSP in months, aside from occasional trysts with other games for 15 minutes or so. I'm tempted to buy DJMP 1, but I think I'm going to hold off for a while.

    I got Dialex from the bit generations. 14.20 $ seems pretty good. Hopefully Visa will not charge that much for foreign use.

    Too bad Coloris is that much pricier.

    Edit: Just for kicks whats your cut in those 14 bucks, Lunker?

    it tells you "Affiliate earnings" on each item description, it's not alot for each item, but last time there was a sale like this, I had a comprehensive OP that tracked all the prices, and what was in stock and I earned just shy of $100 (but people viewed my OP, copied it to other sites as if it was their own, and didn't change the links, there was a bunch of different sites that got refered to me)

    I think it's a cool dollar or so, so you're helping to offset the shipping of my impulse buy. :) Thanks again!

    I have Orbital, which is very, very cool (think an outer-space Katamari Damacy) and serene. I want to get DotStream but I never can justify the slightly higher pricepoint; I'll pick it up one day. Soundvoyager sounds really intense; you actually have to play with headphones and use the left/right panning of sounds to position your onscreen avatar in the correct places. I read a review and I knew I had to try it out.

    Honestly, if you're a packaging whore the BitGenerations games are almost worth their price for the boxes alone.

    I'm totally grabbing DJ Max Portable 2. I was going to get it yesterday from the local import store, but I couldn't bring myself to get it at $55...

    This is much better.

    DJMP2 is made of pure love. <3 I have yet to try the multiplayer, but the single-player is so robust I don't think I'll ever need it. Whoever decided to add experience and gold to a rhythm game was genius -- it keeps me plugging away at songs over and over again.

    I've only been to a few import shops here in NYC, but they're all overpriced, too. I bought Ouendan 2 for $59 but it was worth the instant gratification at the time. :rotate:

    EDIT: Added link to third-party Wii component cables -- only $8 before shipping! I'm also rooting through the toys to see what they have, but I'm hoping I won't get fired at work for looking at anime figurines in my cube. :(

    Does anyone have any experience with these earphones? The ones I use on my iPod died not long ago, and these will probably be used mostly with my DS. They seem to be cheaper than the similar options I can find elsewhere, but I'm suspicious.

    Ugh, my wallet's still hurting from GameStop and TRU's recent sales. I can't afford this :(. I really, really want one of the Jump games though. Can anyone describe the online experience of Ultimate Stars? I'd really like to get a more comfortable stylus as well (the regular one feels too small). Any suggestions?

    1 is out of stock and thus not eligible for the sale, so 2 is your only option, though they might get more of 1 in stock before the sale ends.

    Ouendan 2 is generally the better title anyway, IMO. Song patterns are the hardest and most fun out of the series. If you were to get both I'd say start with O1, because otherwise it'll feel outdated after adjusting to EBA/O2, but they're both really solid.

    I've got Jump Super Stars. Picked it up from a local Best Buy back in December (Best Buy imports games? I was WTFing too.), damn good game. It's the closest you'll get to SSB on the DS. I had most everything by 34 hours, though. And seeing Ultimate Stars series roster, I'm inclined to say that it expands on Super Stars in a big way. I'd like to pick it up myself, just depends on whether or not I can scrounge up the funds.

    JUS is better than JSS in every way possible. Easier for an importer to understand too, and about ten times easier to unlock shit in. Oh, and you can play it ONLINE, so no more waiting for nerd conventions to play it multiplayer. Well, besides the demo download mode.

    Look at both links, they should say no region encoding.

    If they say that you're sailing easy.

    Personally I'm just upset Planet Puzzle League hasn't been out for 30 days.

    Mind you if I wait till the 11 of July will the discount kick in? Because I can wait.
