Play Asia lets Mag Kid's price slide

Curious about Nintendo's Slide Adventure: Mag Kid? We totally are. We'd love to play the game designed for that weird sliding optical-mouse-esque DS stand doodad (the official name.)

Play Asia conducting a Nodame Cantabile sale

We've put up several posts in the past about Nodame Cantabile, a conductor-themed rhythm game that follows Ouendan's tap-circles-to-the-beat formula, hoping someone would eventually pick it up and let us know how its mechanics compare against its predecessor's.

Go ahead, Jump! Ultimate Stars sale

As if language barriers aren't enough to dissuade would-be importers from ordering Japan-only games, the pricing on these titles often border on lunacy when compared to what new releases usually cost in the states. So while Play Asia's Jump! Ultimate Stars sale for $29.90 might not seem like much of...
