I got this for Christmas from my fiance. I had told her on the phone one day that I was about to order something on ebay, and she asked what it was. When I told her, she said "DON'T BUY IT!" in a scary demon voice, and I ended up finding this on my doorstep a few days later. :lol:
It was the last game I needed to complete my Time Crisis collection (I've been trying to get every one in their big box "plus Guncon" releases), and this one was actually completely new in its original wrapper. Feels good opening a new PS1 game after all these years.
Whatta gal.

I also got the Arkham City: Game of the Year Edition, Dishonored, and Sniper Elite V2 for Christmas from the folks. Nice little haul this year. :D

Yesterday I found a game I had searched for a long time, and which I thought I'd never get, not even paying top dollar, as I absolutely just couldn't find it anywhere. Then, as I was scrounging around online, there it was, a sealed copy, which I managed to haggle down to half-price (15euro + shipping). I still can't quite believe it, and I probably won't until it arrives. Hope I haven't jinxed it now.

The game is

^^ That game, imo, has earned it's place in the boxart thread

Anyhow, what's it about?

It is essentially an experience focused on the story of a man and a woman, living in different countries, brought together by an uncanny nature they seem to share, based on a trilogy of novels by Nick Bantock. The characters use postcards and letters to communicate, which constitutes the basis of gameplay, as each is a puzzle.

It also won Best Sound and Best Moving Image at the BAFTA Interactive Entertainment Awards in 98.

Actually the project itself is something else, but the "Thunder" is related to it in a big way. ;-)
(meaning yes, that is the reason I bought the collection)

Really good guess (great series, too) but no, it's something else.
Though I am getting the urge to play the one you're suggesting, now that you bring it up. Kind of a shame the last game was edited for violence in the Taito Collection 2.
