I have a lot of games added to my collection for this update, a total of 25 to be exact! It’s madness I tell you, MADNESS! If you’d like to watch me go over the additions you can check that out on my YouTube video. Since there are so many titles for this update, I am only going to cover a select few here. Watch my video to see them all!
Dragon’s Crown (PS3) – I have already played through this game and it is a delight! I’ve been playing as the elf as I mentioned I would in some places and she seems like a really strong character. If you are looking for someone to co-op with and are in need of the best elf in the land, don’t hesitate to let me know and Daerwen will be there to kick ass!
JoJo no Kimyo na Bouken: All-Star Battle (PS3) – From the makers of the well-known Naruto: Ultimate Ninja series, CyberConnect2, comes their take on a fighter for JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure. Unlike most JoJo video games that focus exclusively on Part 3, Stardust Crusaders, this game as the name implies brings together characters from all 8 parts. It’s a fan service game so if you’re looking for a tournament quality fighter, you won’t find it here. Having said that this game is still the best fighter CC2 has ever put out as far as I’m concerned.
Ketsui: Kizuna Jigoku Tachi EXTRA (PS3) – The premier shmup developers at CAVE have finally released their first PlayStation 3 game and it is a port of their early 2000s masterpiece Ketsui! I got my hands on the limited edition which includes a 2-disc soundtrack and superplay Blu-ray.
Sokkou Seitokai: Sonic Council (SAT) – Add yet another obscure Japanese only released fighter to my collection. I played a bit when I received it and the game seems pretty good.
Akumajou Dracula X: Chi no Rondo (PCE) – One of the holy grails I put off acquiring for quite awhile, but I now have it and my copy is super minty! Arguably the best of the old-school Castlevanias, you can experience the original on the cheap on Wii Virtual Console or PSP via Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles.
Star Fox 2 (SNES) – A game that I anticipated in the mid-’90s that was canceled in spite of the game essentially being completed in favor of the N64 Star Fox game. This is a reproduction from the people at TimeWalk Games and it is very nice! I’m looking forward to playing it!
Panzer Bandit (PS) – In a similar way that Gunners Heaven for the PlayStation is a Gunstar Heroes clone, this game is a Guardian Heroes clone for PlayStation. Hopefully it’ll be more competent than Gunners Heaven was!
