Today out of sheer boredom, and inability to find something decent to post about, I stumbled onto the Japanese Playstation store. I figured it would be pretty interesting to see what is coming out over there to buy. End result: I am pretty damn jealous. But alas I feel that my jealousy will not last forever, odds are if Japan is getting these games, were next on the list right? Anyway here are some of the cool things worth mentioning:
If you have never heard of this game, then you should just run toward the nearest sharp object until you suffer a mortal blow. Or you could just click on the link and read the wikipedia summary. Anyway, it’s a groundbreaking PS1 game, which is next to impossible to find these days. The 6 dollar price tag is much easier to swallow than well… the standard going price…
This is the game that really makes the series. If you want to play Metal Gear Solid 4, at the very least you should be familiar with this game. Obviously the whole series is ideal but if you’re in a rush to play MGS4 at least play this one! There is a whole chapter of MGS4 that probably won’t make sense to you if you don’t. I would love to have this game for my PSP too, the graphics seem to work well for the smaller screen.
This game is the predecessor to the highly anticipated (but much more complex) fighting game Final Fantasy: Dissidia. There are better fighting games out there in the world, but if you have ever wanted to show your Sephiroth-loving friend up, no better way to do it then with this game. At least for now…
I bought this game for the soul reason that it came with a demo of Final Fantasy VIII when it was released. Much to my surprise at the time, it was a damn good action/adventure/RPG game. The first one I had ever played which featured night and day, unbelievable!
Seeing such awesome downloadable content on the horizon makes me very glad that I bought my PS3. Hopefully, since all these games were localized, they will also be available on the North American Playstation store soon.
Roy Blakely started Kotowari.org in 2008 while studying abroad in Japan. There, in his lonely dorm room, the site provided a much-needed outlet for his love of games. The site grew quickly, along with his authority on niche Japanese titles. Today, in addition to posting on Kotowari, he hosts a podcast, writes guides, and dabbles in programming. What a cool guy, huh?
