New Games, Manga, and Anime

Went with a friend over to Shreveport the other day, and stopped by this used game store called Game Exchange. They had tons of used games including NES games. The prices weren't bad either. I got Robotech: Battlecry, and Robotech: Invasion for the PS2 for 5.95 each. Blue Dragon for the 360 was only 9.95.

More after the jump.....

Jade Empire was 7.95. While SSX Tricky and SSX 3 were just 3.95. Only problem is apparently Tricky isn't XBox 360 compatible. They had a few other games I was interested in, but they didn't have the manuals. I don't buy used games unless the original case and manual are included.

We also stopped by Gamestop, FYE, and Books A Million. I got Kanon volume 1 which was the only volume I was missing. Kanon is an awesome series, and I'm glad they licensed the 2006 series which I think is much better than the 2002 series. xxxHolic volume 2 and Yotsuba@! volume 1 were also purchased. If you haven't read Yotsuba@! you need to. It's by Kiyohiko Azuma, who also did Azumanga Daioh, and it is a hilarious series (or at least book 1 was).

Last manga purchases were Fruits Basket 8 and Trigun Maximum 1. And in Trigun news apparently there will be a new Trigun manga to go along with the upcoming movie. (Source: Ain't It Cool). At Gamestop I got Halo 3: ODST and....

....Class of Heroes. Class of Heroes wasn't exactly what I expected. Was expecting more interaction with the whole going to class and grouping with other students mechanic. But there isn't any real interaction between you and your classmates. In fact you can create your entire party from scratch. And the going to class part consists of accepting a quest at the library, and then either answering a quiz or being sent to the dungeon on some specific task. It's still a decent 3D Dungeon crawler though.

I also got some games from JAST USA in the mail. Back after Christmas I took advantage of JAST's "Buy 2, Get Snow Sakura for Free" sale. X-Change 3 actually came in about 3 weeks ago, but Snow Sakura didn't arrive until today. If your wondering what the other game was I ordered to get Snow Sakura free, I pre-ordered Cat Girl Alliance.

The Robotech games are real fun, and i havn't got a chance to play X-Change 3 yet. i have had the game for a few years now. Class of Heroes has been a game i have been looking to maybe pick up, since i try to buy alot of games Atlus releases.

X-Change 3 is the best of the series in my opinion, followed by Yin-Yang: X-Change Alternative. I'm hoping Jast picks up Yin-Yang 2 soon.
