Hi

I was wondering if anyone can help me with obtaining Steam Hearts and Suikoden 1 and 2 for PC.
Any internet shop suggestions?
Or good shops in Tokyo or any in Asia where I can email or phone .
Thank you very much

Have you tried using a yahoo japan 3rd party buyer for foreigners?
I am sure they would buy them for you if you pre-paid.

I have searched through rinkya and can't find those items there ...I thought than Maybe when I get to japan in 10 days then It would be easier to find it in a specialist shop in Tokyo...

Steam Heart's was a PC-9801 game originally, so the chances of finding that in a shop in Japan are probably close to zero as you are going to get. There is Steam Heart's perfect collection which has the PC-98 and PC-Engine versions of the game which is suitable for a Windows 95 PC but it is 13 years old and again trying to find that would be a challenge and a half in any second hand adult game shop.

Unlike console games, ther are very few shops that just sell second hand PC games, and the ones that do tend not to want to buy in any game over a few years old, and if you find older games they tend to be old stock or rare titles that might sell.

However as Steam Heart's is an adult game, you will find a lot of shops that do sell second hand adult games and you are going to have lots of fun next to all the Otaku who don't know what personal hygine is.

10 days seems a long time and you might be able to search every dodgy adult game shop in Akihabara in that time, including the ones that are a small door unstairs or downstairs next to a larger shop. Remember that every shop has their own way of listing titles from publishers to type to even names...

Still Yahoo auctions is probably yuor best bet.
