Favorite import Japanese games
NO, this ain't about beer! This is about Japanese games that you like that never came across the waters to wherever you are. If you played them, it would have to be in Japanese or fan-translation. These games need to be never licensed in your country and you need to have played the Japanese versions. For me, these are almost all Comiket games. Anyways, here are some (lots of) fun ones.
Higurashi Daybreak - Think Super Smash Bros in 3D with Higurashi characters. I LOVE playing as Rena with her machete or HUGE zweihander, Rika with her homing syringe missile-bombs, Shion with her knifes, and Mion with her rocket launcher. Mindless fun.
Blood Over - Great side-scrolling shooter. Short but sweet, and with a pretty good story for its length
TWlight INSanity - Also known as TWINS, this is a FUN (which is rare) bullet-hell game. Kudos to letting you play with a twin set, thus letting you have two bullet types, even if both the Hoshimi girls sucked.
Melty Blood Re-ACT - All your favorite Tsukihime characters in typical crazy Japanese 2D fighter. There's even a story mode. Akiha, Ciel, Ren, and the Hisui/Kohaku tag duo are great.
FatalFake - Pretty good short Fate-Stay Night pseudo-3D fighter. A bit more simplistic than I would've liked, but still fun. Saber's the only good one.
Combat DX9 - Kinryu vs. Xentex - Fun 3D combat with customizable moe-dolls from the Hoihoi franchise. These firefights are almost as good as Daybreak.
DuoPrincess - Great overhead adventure game with the two princesses from Threads of Fate. Surprisingly long for such a game (its a doujin).
Eternal Fighter Zero - Typical Japanese 2D fighter with the Key and Tactics. Shiori and Kanna are great.
Guardian Heroines Final - HUGE number of characters from SO many Japanese games in a side scrolling fighter. There's even penguins.
M.U.G.E.N - Last count over 200 fighters from EVERYTHING. Key, Marvel, Capcom, Touhei, Nintendo, even Fat Albert. Pretty fun, but HARD.
Queen of Heart 2001 - Comic Party 2D fighter. Pretty good
Acceleration of Suguri - Weird 2D flying fighter, but fun.
Full Metal Sister Marilu - Kinda like Metal Slug.
If you're curious, I'm sure there are youtube vids of most, if not all the games. I know for a fact there are vids for Higurashi, Melty Blood, Blood Over, EFZ, and MUGEN.
