    That's one of the systems I've yet to have started importing for, due to the fact that I don't like to hard-mod my systems and my PSX is 2000 miles away, so I don't want to mod my PS2. I hear Zanac X Zanac and Cowboy Bebop are good though!

    Funny, I've heard that the Cowboy Bebop PlayStation game is utter garbage.

    Anyway, I suggest Gunners Heaven. It may be a rip-off of Gunstar Heroes, but it's also an enjoyable little action/shooter in its own right.

    The only ones I have are GunCon games, I'm not sure of the titles at the moment. I don't even own a US PS game and never have. Well... I take that back, I had 4 sealed games from an auction I won, but I sold them.

    Definitely Gradius Gaiden, Salamander Deluxe Pack Plus and Namco Museum Encore. Gradius Deluxe Pack is a good one too.

    I've not played many PS1 Imports but I'd go for Guitar Freaks and Ore No Ryouri (My Cooking). The latter is nuts - like a chef's version of Tapper.

    My import collection - which is actually a pretty sizable chunk of my meager Playstation shelf - consists largely of gooey creamy retro goodness. The Japanese love their retro-arcade compilations, and SO DO I.

    Namco Museum 2 (JP edition - has a different game on it than Super Pac-Man)
    Namco Museum Encore
    Nichibutsu Arcade Classics
    Irem Arcade Classics
    Space Invaders Collection
    Superlite 1500 3-In-1 Arcade Classics (Taito games: Qix, Crazy Balloon, Space Chaser + updates of all 3)
    Capcom Generation 3 (which led to my current addiction, Pirate Ship Higemaru)

    @ Yashiro - what's on those Sunsoft comps? Anything I should be interested in?

    Higemaru ROCKS.

    Wow, there's a Sunsoft Memorial Volume 6 now. Each game in the series contains 2 Famicom games (ripoff, but at least the price is low)

    Vol. 1 - Ikki & Super Arabian
    Vol. 2 - Route-16 Turbo & Mystery of Atlantis
    Vol. 3 - Madura no Tsubasa & Toukaidou Gojuu-San Shi
    Vol. 4 - Blaster Master & Ripple Island
    Vol. 5 - Raf & Hebereke
    Vol. 6 - Battle Formula & Gimmick

    PDF - If you love the arcade Higemaru, try tracking down the Famicom game Higemaru Makaijima. It's got the same style of gameplay as the arcade, but the whole world has been fleshed out. You now travel from island to island (at least one of which is themed after Ghosts 'N Goblins) and do all sorts of stuff. At the very least, you can download the ROM from my site The Ghoul Realm (#4 in my sig).

    PDF - Let me know what you think of it! I just got my hands on the actual Famicom cart recently, and I've been playing the hell out of it.

    Is it just me, or do the Sunsoft Memorial games have a horrible buzzing sound that doesn't go away?

    Internal Section - Gets my vote for the greatest Square Non-RPG, just edging out Einhander.

    Twinbee Taisen Puzzle Dama - Great puzzle game, and comes with the original Taisen arcade game, Taisen Pazurudama as a bonus!

    The Famicom Higemaru game is pretty cool, but without knowing Japanese, it's impossible to tell what you're supposed to do next. Here's hoping a translation is made some day.

    I unfortunately can't comment on any Playstation imports at the moment, but I can safely say that Namco Encore is probably a must own just for Rolling THunder alone. Rolling Thunder is one of the best arcade games of all time.

    Say, with a hardmodded psOne... would you be able to play Vib Ribbon? Is there anything one would need to know? sorry for asking here, but it seemed better to do here than make it's own thread.

    Holy crap. It's been a while.

    The search tool does work! Nearly 2 years old, but whatever...

    I'm just wondering what you're favorite Japanese only (never came to usa) games are. I think I might want to collect a few, but don't know what the "greats" are.

    Metal Slug

    I have this. I figured that the Japanese version would include the blood that became "sweat" in the US version. Great cover art as well

    Salamander Deluxe Pack Plus

    I wasn't aware this was on the PSX....does it cost less than the Saturn version?

    Possibility is infinity! You must be satisfied!
