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.

GARO : Makai no Hana

Dear Bandai Namco Games, please re-aquire the GARO license so that you can make another game with the GARO characters. We are very content if it is a fighting game. You want ideas, but also how to have it be cheap for you and good for us? Don’t worry, Banpresto is always there to make something like the first game that was made.

Or you can hire DreamFactory and ask them to make it more like Toshinden War Budokai.

(Come on, this is practically GARO on crack!)

Sincerely, all of the GARO fans.

Random Ramblings Vol.08 : Dissidia Madness!!

Ah, Dissidia. The first game that ever taught me what “hype” was and the first game I was forced to do serious search and research upon and the japanese language in general to understand what was going on. While some games I had bought before that were in japanese and were japanese-heavy in text, they already had guides in english and explained the hiragana / furigana / kanji the games had so it wasn’t much of a problem for me. This one was new for the time and I would buy it the same time as everyone else and I certainly couldn’t wait for who knows how many months before it had a guide, I couldn’t wait anymore…I had been waiting for 10 years already and the trailer that made my dreams come true was hitting me hard on the head with its awesomeness.

Needless to say that when Cloud and Squall were announced, I was ecstatic, but a bit dissapointed that Tifa wasn’t in the game and neither was Auron or Lulu, but my two favourite leads and Ocarina of Time Link’s “rival” would finally be playable in an action game and it was enough for me. And in December of 2008, I finally had it my hands and have clocked in over 600 hours in just the first game.

5 years later, I still crave for more Dissidia but not necessarily the Final Fantasy one anymore. Maybe this one isn’t so random as other ramblings, just maybe but for this post I’m going to write about the manga, anime, visual novels, tokusatsu and even other video game series that can benefit from the gameplay system of Dissidia should they ever be or are in need for a good fighting game.
