DS Daily: Year's best imports
We talk a little about imports around here, but there are just so many that we can't possibly cover 'em all. Mostly, we hit the biggies -- the games that will generally head this way -- or things that are completely awesome, like the Ouendan titles. Beyond that, of course, we look at quirky, silly games, because we are quirky, silly people and we like to laugh. But how about you? If you're importing, or even surfing sites and thinking about it, what piques your interest? What did you buy, or even consider buying, this year? Games that you just couldn't wait for, or things that had little to no chance of a release outside Japan?

How about that "Air Traffic Controller DS" game? I think it's fun, dunno about other people, though.

A first release Pokemon Diamond or Pearl to take advantage of the glitches.

I imported Jump Ultimate Stars and Taiko no Tatsujin DS. Of the two, TnT is definitely my fav.
And now I get the wonderful experience of playing it all again because I accidentally deleted my save file. T_T I had only beaten all the songs on Easy though. Half of them were gold crowns, too...

I got "Jump Ultimate Stars" and "Super Robot Wars W." I love them both. These are two games that will never be localized for us Westerners. :(...

Got so many imports this year. Best so far...
Taiko no Tatsujin DS (Definetly my fave so far)
Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland (sooo good)
Ouendan 1 + 2 (still finishing the first one)
Jump Ultimate Stars (suck at it...I need to learn japanese)
Game Center CX (Another game I need to learn japanese for)
All in all I think 07 was a great year for imports

First import was yesterday using Play-Asia's Ouendan 2 sale.

Lol, same goes for me! I couldn't resist the discount.

I got Xenosaga I & II.... It's alright, I really enjoyed the three PS2 games so I figured I'd try out the DS version when Play-Asia put it up for its weekly sale (sometime in the summer).
Most of my imports were for systems other than the DS. DJ Max Portable 2 for the PSP, some visual novels for the PSP (my computer is too filled with crap for PC iterations so I'll hold off on those until this upcoming summer), Fire Emblem 10 for the Wii (because I couldn't wait), and The Idol Master for if I ever get a Japanese 360. :)
I thought about getting Ouendan for a while but I decided against it because I've been really enjoying DJ Max and I don't want to distract myself from improving in it yet.

Being in Europe, I happen to import some games never released outside Japan/US.
Plus, I like the US covers better.
In the games I imported from Japan : Oendan/Oendan2, and Jet Impulse.
I imported a few US/Japan-only games (like draglade), but I'm not sure you care.

I import like crazy, not just for DS, but for all my other systems as well.
For DS, I got Bleach, Ouendan 2, and some kanji game (the one with the number "250" on it).
