  • I am looking for a game with photo dvd in it for PS2

    I saw a game at a shop, and it disappeared before I could buy it and I don't remember the name of it. It's perhaps Japanese in orgin, has anime characters, and is slightly retro, and it has an extra DVD which allows you to place it in your PC for photo manipulation so you can implement/integrate the photo in the game, thus allowing you to fight monsters w/ photos of your friends on them.
