X360 Dream C Club - New Import, In Stock

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» A new and highly exclusive hostess bar is debuting in Japan this week. Their liquor license has been approved by the authorities and patrons who are fortunate enough to become members will get to enjoy an added dimension to their nightly activities. Dream Club is the name and libation's served by lovely hostesses is the game. Literally. Dream Club is a hostess bar simulation where players visit the Dream Club, order colorful alcoholic beverages from an extensive menu, and talk to hostesses.

By being somewhat clever through the input of prompts and cues, players try to learn more about the girls and get them to drink. By loosening a hostess up, she might reveal a personal secret or get up on stage to do a little dancing or singing. Familiarity normally breeds contempt but not at Dream Club. The more that you visit and spend your hard-earned yen, the friendlier the hostesses get. You won't find love at Dream Club but you'll get lots of undivided attention that might not normally be forthcoming. Remember, as long as your money is flowing, you can do not wrong at Dream Club. D3 Publisher is giving away a bonus DLC card with early preorders for the game and we're including the card with all preorders that are shipping today and with new orders while supplies last.

NDS Nanashi no Game Me - New Import, In Stock

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» In the Japanese novel and film titled Ringu, viewers who watch a spooky video on a cursed VHS tape die within seven days of the viewing. Square's Nanashi no Game from 2008 hews to the same style of curse. Hapless players who engage a cursed RPG are destined to die within seven days if they don't plow through the game and finish it. To make matters worse, neither a FAQ nor a walkthrough is anywhere to be found.

The sequel to Nanashi no Game follows the same curse convention but this time, the protagonist is an 18-year old college student at Nara University who gets involved in the cursed RPG. To add to his folly, he also plays a second cursed game which is a side scrolling platformer for a double dose of the evil eye. Supporting characters include the hero's anthropology professor and two classmates who offer assistance and aid.

PSP Tenchu San Portable - New Import, In Stock

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» Back in the 80s, ninjas were big not only in Japanese pop culture but in the West as well. Ninjas are enigmatic, shadowy, and highly skilled practitioners of an ancient art which are attractive qualities. However, somewhere in the ascension of the ninja, the marketplace reached a point which we're going to call "Peak Ninja" and it was all downhill from there. Kids no longer dressed up like ninjas on Halloween, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles disappeared from Saturday mornings, and throwing stars were no longer sold at flea markets. After the crash, ninjas slowly made their way back into pop culture but they would never enjoy the love they once knew.

The Tenchu franchise has been around for a little over a decade and we've watched its sales performance on a number of consoles and handhelds through the years. The games have been solid sellers and the PSP conversion of Tenchu San (Wrath of Heaven) Portable looks to continue the tradition. The game takes place one year after
the demonic Mei-Oh was slain right inside his stronghold by Rikimaru and Ayame. Despite the success of the mission, Rikimaru is presumed dead by Ayame and Kiku when he doesn't escape with them. Tenchu San follows the adventure of Rikimaru as he returns to action and battles another evildoer named Tenrai. Making a return is the demon known as Onikage who is now under the employ of Tenrai and working to revive his master Mei-Oh. Along with Rikimaru serving as a protagonist, Ayame, Tesshu, and three new characters are featured in the game along with new missions and moves.

PS2 Hakuouki: Zuisouroku Limited Edition - New, In Stock

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» Girl gamers are a growing force in the marketplace and Idea Factory has been more progressive than most of their publishing kin in catering to the female audience. Idea Factory went so far as to create a separate gaming label dubbed Otomate that's dedicated to serving girl gamers with a steady diet of interactive romance games. The latest in the release line-up is Hakuouki: Zuisouroku where players take on the role of a medieval maiden named Yukimura Chizuru who's surrounded by hunky and chiseled boys. She's on a mission to Beijing to find her missing father. Some of the guys in the game look like girls but maybe that's how they bred them way back in the day.

Similar to other Otomate games, Hakuouki: Zuisouroku is presented as an interactive adventure where characters converse, experience events, and forge bonds during the course of the drama. User input is fairly limited and players are primarily relegated to the role of a viewer who reads the onscreen conversations and stares at the examples of manhood that appear on screen. The voice acting by deep-voiced actors injects an additional sensory dimension to the overall romance antics.

TOYS Jabba the Hut Supreme Edition Costume - New, SOLD OUT

From the Distributor
Become one of the richest gangsters of a Galaxy Far, Far Away with the Jabba the Hutt Supreme Edition Costume! This full-body costume will transform you into the famous Hutt with a body piece (complete with tail), headpiece, and a battery-operated fan to keep you cool.

NCS Product Description
When NCS started accepting preorders for the Hutt costume, we assumed there'd be apathy from the marketplace. Wrong. It sold like gangbusters and we're thinking there's going to be a bunch of Jabbas roaming around the streets when Halloween 2009 rolls around.

The manufacturer Rubie's Costume Company doesn't state what the costume is made of on the product packaging but we originally assumed highly flammable plastic. It's actually made of a mix of cloth and polyester based on our touching and feeling of the costume that we're keeping for our private collection. An orange fan with on-off attachment is included with each costume to inflate the Jabba suit to its full girth. NCS will probably hire someone to wear the Jabba outfit and a sandwich board whenever the Playstation 4 is announced so we can get some local pre-sales. We're just hoping the cops won't arrest whomever we hire for causing a spectacle and possibly a public nuisance by way of Jabba. All preorders ship today.
