  • Ohh amagami psp is pwning, and even ps2 verison is still on top 20, haha, ps2 is just too that cool

    Im actually curious by Ar you Alice? it seems it has a manga, and is a crazy story based on alice wonderland, has someone read it before? O.o is it good?

    • Zero_Destiny

      Heheheheheheheh =D
      I’d buy it if I could. Good memories. Miss the show already.

    • kroufonz

      since are you alice published by idea factory make me almost sure it is an otome game

      and amagami doing very good, isn’t this is just a port with fixed bug???

      • Nope, is not, i also thought of that, but i did a bit of research, it seems to be a normal VN for both girls and boys, like, a normal book you know? with mysteries and such, not dating sim (of any kind xD).Besides, what made me start researching into it is that the MC was a dude… and he was… “Alice” so i was like wtf, and it had drawings of otome but it didnt look otome at all.And nope o.o, it’s not just a port, it has a bunch of extra scenes compared to before, is like, a little remastered ver.? o.o, and as far as i know, they made the mahjong game (or something like that, dunno how it is spelled) to be able to play by using a machine to play for you…. So you can play even if you dont know the rules…So im asuming this was in the game before too…Umm.. i couldnt tell you specifically, but im sure it was not just a port/re-release of the previous ps2 ver.

  • With 32 mln DS units, it sure is taking the 3DS a long time to break that 1 mln mark.

    Must be a low selling week when Mario Kart Wii and a PS2 title are on the list also odd that Layton is done better than Nintendogs, which I thought was more open to more gamers (lifetime)

    Dynasty Warriors keeps on chugging. Is that good for EDF2? What did the original do?

  • I hope D3 will bring this over, as extra motivation to buy a PSP.
