Random Ramblings Vol.19 : Tales of the Heroes Twin Brave – Elaborations and Additions

This time I’ll talk about how to make TotHTB more…Tales-like. Now these additions I’m gonna list aren’t really to make the game better per se(it won’t make it worse) but it would give it a feeling that it belongs to the series and takes notes from its games. Those could also be used for a hypothetical sequel. Continue reading

Anime Monster Hunter – How about Bleach?

So, for all those years that Monster Hunter and its clones have been popular in Japan, that even series that have nothing to do with monster hunting have had games like that. Fairy Tail and Naruto come immidiately to mind, with Fairy Tail having three games like that. One Piece did about 4 games that are like Phantasy Star Online while their latest one on that series was very MonHun-light. Toriko is logical to have had three so far, it is MonHun with food…it was at least before the mangaka decided to make it pure crap. Yet Bleach never had one. You’d think even when Treasure, the guys behind the Bleach games for SEGA did a Monster Hunter game called Gaist Crusher, SEGA would have them capitalize on that. Nothing. Let’s fix that quite easily. Continue reading

Create a Character Dissidia Edition – Vol.08 : Hope Estheim

I love the Dissidia games immensely, especially the second one, Dissidia 012 Duodecim. So, as you can guess, I want to contribute to the game and its community and try and “create” a new character for it. For this instalment, I give you the hope of Cocoon, Hope Estheim.

Random Ramblings Vol.14 : Warriors Orochi. How can we make them more interesting?

Warriors Orochi. The name of the first crossover between Koei’s two major franchises at the time : the Dynasty and Samurai Warriors games, a match born in heaven at the time, all the Warriors one loved from the games in one game with new mechanics and a new system but most importantly, new characters that could pave the way for something more and exiting. Despite that, I do believe that after the first game, some things kinda fell apart for the franchise and it went down a road I don’t think is exactly good or beneficial for the series.

Random Ramblings Vol.13 : So…when’s Drakengard Warriors?

Just like the title says…when’s Drakengard Warriors, or Drag-On Dragoon Musou? 😀 We know you have more plans for Koei-Tecmo after the Dragon Quest Heroes : Anryuu to Sekaiju no Shiro, don’t try to deny it. 😀 But, as Final Fantasy Warriors gallops towards existence(it was pretty high on polls by japanese fans on what series KT should make a Musou out of, Hokuto no Ken coming first and DBZ coming second…that reminds me…when’s Dragon Ball Musou? 🙂 ) could it be you should try to give another series of yours a chance and this time not force it on Taro Yoko or something…or just have him tie the story and game he wants to make on a license you didn’t want to hire the right people for, so long ago? 😀

PSP Game Projects Vol.08 : Ougon Kishi Garo Project

So, apart from that one Garo game on the PS2, how else could one make a good Garo game. I had already said that some categories of fighting would fit Garo and even made a post about…yet, ultimately, the perfect way to represent Garo in the gaming world is via a very certain combination of PS2 games that perhaps nobody had thought of before.

Random Ramblings Vol.12 : How to fix and enrich the gameplay of the Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm series!

Despite being a really small time fan of Naruto(I mostly try and see what will happen at the end since I hate leaving things I invested so much time unfinished), I still love very much the first half of the series and always loved the videogames that came out. A stark contrast to the second part of the manga / the Shippuden anime, the games from that era only advanced forward and made things more awesome! When Storm came around, it was a dream for me who loves those completely 3D / Free-roaming fighters. It has sadly gone so far downhill ever since then but I have enough solutions to make this whole series better.

PSP Game Projects Vol.06 : Fairy Tail Portable Guild series retrospect and improvements!

If you haven’t heard of the Fairy Tail Portable Guild games for the PSP you either don’t know about Fairy Tail or simply loved the series but didn’t know about them because the games remained exclusive for Japanese players and regions(aka Japan only). If you are interested in seeing what happened with these games or already know and want to see ways for them to get better, hop in.
