Okay, so once again I'm buying some import games from Japan. And once again I am faced w/the dilema of shipping options. I've always gone Airmail bacause it is quite a bit cheaper. I don't mind the longer wait either. Yet I always worry about the package getting damaged or lost. I haven't had any trouble yet, but it is a fear.

Anyone have any horror stories w/Airmail? Or am I worrying for nothing?

Airmail for the win. EMS is best. OverLand is dreadful. As T2Kfreaker will testify, is awful.

I'll be able to do a first hand comparison, cause I opted for the cheaper shipping on my other batch of games (Belzerion, No Tatsujin, Winning Post) I'll see if there are any drawbacks other than a longer wait.
