Kimi ga Aruji de Shitsuji ga Oro de: Oshie Nikki - In Stock

A young man named Ren Uesagi and his older sister Mihato venture out into the world to avoid familial strife at home in the form of an alcoholic father. On the train ride to the big city, Ren rests his head on Mihato's lap and big sister thinks of how their fortunes are likely to change for the better. Upon their arrival, the two spend their first night in a city park by the ocean. Job prospects are dim and they spend a few nights in the park. When things begin to look somewhat despondent, the Fates intervene and a conspiracy of events leads to the siblings' gainful employment in the Kuonji household.

Kimi ga Aruji de Shitsuji ga Oro de was originally released on the Japanese PC as an eroge with adult themes and situations. The PS2 conversion washes all of the mature subject matter away to leave a family-friendly interactive novel that anyone can play. Updated features in the PS2 conversion include a brand new scenario and a significant number of new illustrations that have been integrated into the main game. A new opening cinema and the addition of new spoken dialogue also round out the upgrades in the PS2 game. «NCS Game Notes»

Pro Baseball Spirits features all 12 Japanese professional teams, their respective stadiums, 2008 team rosters, and a control scheme that's borrowed from Konami's Jikkyou Powerful games. Players may enjoy tried and true modes such as Pennant Race, Home Run Race, and the card»based Spirits Mode.
