Rest of Japan loot 2014 Part 2

Final Fantasy tactics! My favourite FF game ever.

Found this at a retro game shop in Nipponbashi.

Luckily not as expensive as the Grandia 1 guide book though its still rare.

Ah, Gamearts. Wtf is my Grandia 4?

Love the Grandia music. Right now replaying Grandia 1 on Vita and the music gives me goosebumps.

Was looking for Sega Consumer History book all over. Retail cost is only 1900円 but I got it second hand from Super Potato for 3280円. Either this book is very rare or I got ripped off bad.

Naka Yuji, dude responsible for Sonic, Sakura Taisen and NiGHTS.

Sonic! Software Planning dudes (now known as Camelot) who made the awesome Shining series. The once proud series has been reduces to Tony Taka art and crap gameplay. Unfortunately, they been doing Mario Tennis and Mario Golf instead of RPGs.

How come I never played this game on the Saturn before?

Collection of essays by Nagoshi Toshihiro, producer of the Ryu ga Gotoku series, back when he looked like a human being. Google his current pictures at your own risk.

Wasn't sure I wanted this book since Ryu ga Gotoku is only talked about in the end but this paragraph gave me a strong feeling of 'I have to read this'.

Arisa from God Eater Burst and I've never played the game.

I just had to buy it. Normally I avoid any figures that stand on one leg cause they will eventually fall but its got support for the sword.

Tempted to buy the game on my Vita to see her story and at 1900円, its not going to get much cheaper. Not a fan of MonHun games in general though.

The foot's got two pegs so I'm not worried about it getting loose.

Very nice back view.

Shingeki no Kyoujin jacket. Not a fan of the manga but I like the design.

Didn't get this from Japan but Ao no Kiseki Eolution was released on Thursday and I just got it.

Fully voiced RPG so I don't have to pay too much attention to reading. If only the Sen no Kiseki series were fully voiced. Its going to be hard to go back to a battle system that's not as exciting. Sorry Grandia, I'm too lazy to read and am going to have to put you on the backburner.

I love final fantasy tactics, it's my fav. final fantasy game too. I've replayed it every 12-18 months since I got it years ago.

Why does that Ryu ga gotoku guy look like some sort of alien now?

Why does the Nagoshi book feature so little on RGG? It's because it was recorded very early in the game series?

I've yet to replay tactics cause I've got too many games to play but its always on my to be replayed list. Nagoshi went overboard with tanning.

The book came out in 2006 and is more about his ideas on games in general.
