NDS Minna no Conveni - New Import, In Stock

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» Operating a convenience store ain't all that. The hours are grueling, the profit margins are thin, and there's a problem with shrinkage. That's retail lingo for theft. Instead of calling it outright theft however, shop operators massage the word and soften it into something innocuous like "shrinkage." If you've ever wanted to run a convenience store but didn't want to confront the "shrinkers," Minna no Conveni affords you the fantasy of being a shopkeeper who does it all in a world without crime.
From manning the cash register to stocking the shelves to choosing the product mix in the store, players try to make bank by running a Conveni. Popular products lead to higher foot traffic which leads to more sales. More sales means more profits and all that commerce leads to expansion and eventual world domination by way of donuts, trinkets, and soda pop.

PSP Tenchu 4 Plus - New Import, In Stock

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» Rikimaru and Ayame are back as stealth assassins under the employ of Lord Gohda who skulk in dark places and attack with sword slashes and one-hit killing blows. Tenchu 4 emphasizes the use of stealth and the game provides a bevy of shadowy places to hide, wait, and attack from. The environments are darkly lit which also attend to a ninja's need for stealth. Unsuspecting enemies who approach Rikimaru's general vicinity but are unaware of his presence may be killed with a single critical stroke. For example, when a hapless victim draws near, Riki can grab him and then perform a powerful blow to the head which kills him instantly. Rikimaru can also topple an enemy from afar by throwing a single shuriken which causes the victim lose his balance and fall to his death. Another killing attack allows Rikimaru to choke someone for about a second but that single second is all that it takes to induce the long sleep. Dead bodies may be stored in large urns or pulled behind bushes to hide them from view. That way, they won't alert any other guards to Riki or Ayame's presence.

As the story goes, a rival of Gohda has kidnapped his daughter Kiku-Hime and spirited her away to an unknown domain. Rikimaru and Ayame are charged with venturing forth and rescuing the Princess. Tenchu's original developer Acquire returns to the franchise that they built and the "Plus" edition of Tenchu 4 includes a new ad hoc communication mode where players can skulk together in stealth-slash-kill missions. The game also features new skills when multiple players collaborate together.

NEWS General Updates

WEATHER Phil Was Right
«©NCSX» Snow fell all day on Thursday in NYC; there was a respite in the morning but that was the literal calm before the storm. The snow fell all night and it's still dropping this morning. According to the tanned weather guy on TV, snow will be coming down consistently until tomorrow morning.
Punxsutawney Phil saw its shadow earlier this month and that's why the yoke of winter is still upon us. Snow isn't caused by atmospheric conditions, numbing temperatures, or moisture content high up in the sky. Snow is ultimately caused by a little groundhog.
