Pic 02: A majority of my purchases from my most recent Japan trip. You'll, uhhh, notice a certain pattern to some of the purchases if you know enough about various topics. *laughs* I found a section of a bookstore and went a little crazy. (And no, none of it is porn!) Covered-up PS2 game is Dance Summit 2001 (never tried it, and it was only 500 yen).

Pic 03: Just for fun, the chu-hi (type of Japanese alcohol) offerings I brought back. I'm a sucker for trying out different kinds of chu-hi.

Damn all these Vita posts, colour me green with envy.

Can't pick one up until at least a couple more weeks (damn you, bills!).

The amount of Vita in this thread is unbearable. I wish I had the money to cough up for a Vita this very day, but alas, no.

Happy Vita launch to all btw. The photo's are great, keep em' coming. It's good to see the platform getting some GAF love after all the pre-release bashing in the press it's received.

if I'm not mistaken, you had to buy the hole lot of Mcfarlane MGS figures to get RAY. Each action figure came with one part of the metal gear.

I'm a little more than what I would assume is half-way done with Enslaved, and SotD is on my to-buy list. Enslaved is great.

I think that's one game that I'd definitely play on a console instead.

What were they thinking... Putting every song from the game on those 2 CDs, but for those 2 important ones. It seems the only way to get those otherwise in Japan is via iTunes store. Why - why - why.

EDIT: If anyone is interested in this: Just searched around. Those 2 songs were originally released on a single in Japan, but it was released digital only. Additionally there seems to be an album by singer Teshima Aoi released end of 2011 called "Collection Blue", that also features those 2 songs and this album seems to have been released on CD as well as digitally. It's available on yesasia.
