Flurry of games

December 30, 2008


I wish I had a Ps2…

With the new year coming and Comiket and other unforseen circumstances which I should not say, some long-awaited or desired games are coming soon or are out already.

Fate/Unlimited Codes
Well, first I’d like to talk about the new installment in the ‘Fate’ games. Fate/Unlimited Codes.


This is one of the 4 official trailers. Watch the rest here.

Fate/Unlimited Codes is basically a 3D fighting game(sorta like Street Fighters and KOF) developed by 8ing/Raizing and cavia, and published by Capcom. It was scheduled to be released for the arcades and exclusively for the PS2 by 18th December, 2008.

I know, I know. 12 days overdue.

I was abit too lazy to do abit of research, my bad. xD

Or rather, you could have pre-ordered and gotten a Saber Lily figurine along.

I already have this liking to the OP of this game, sounds really nice. The only info I have about the opening of the trailer is that it was sung by Sachi Tainaka in her new ablum:Mata Ashita ne/code.

Here’s the full version of the song with a nice picture of Saber Lily. xD

Final Fantasy Dissidia

Imagine a game with a compilation of Final Fantasy Villans and Heros fighting each other. Yes, that’d be awesome, right.

With a Psp, that dream would be fulfiled.


Oooooh yea.

Made by Square Enix, and also to celebrate Final Fantasy’s 20th anniversary (Happy Anniversary!), this game is a whole new revolution in final fantasy terms. Remember the good ol’ final fantasy we used to play? Active Time Gauges? So many options to choose?

Not any more.

Character movement is within a 3 dimensional field map. Anyone who’s played Kingdom Hearts or Dragonball should know how this works.

So the story starts with and ongoing conflict between two gods, Cosmos and Chaos(No prises for guessing which is the evil side). After a few eons of battling, they finally call upon the main protagonists and antagonists of the Final Fantasy series. (You’d think they would’ve done this earlier.)


Look at it. LOOK AT IT!

Mind you, those are characters from Final Fantasy 1 to 12.

But, as always, enemies always have worthless lackeys which are limitless and can appear out of nowhere, providing you constant minor inconveniences.


THIS ISN’T MINO— OMG!

Each Character also has their own specific “Unique Attack”, “Limit break”,or “Last Arc” “Overdrive”, whatever you might wanna call it.

Like Squall with his Renzokuken,

LAST ARC Limit Break!

Cloud with his Omnislash,

What?! Only 506 damage for so many colourful attacks!?!?

You get the idea.

Battles are divided insto stages, each taking place on it’s own ‘checkerboard’ map. Basically, they can move about, collect items, fight enemies, etc etc etc.

However, DPs (Destiny points) have to be used to move around the board.


Wait, I have 3 destinies? COOL.

And points can only be refilled by, as per usual, massacring obliterating destroying defeating your opponents.

There’re still some other games, such as Hidamari Sketch DS, and a whole bunch of C75 games to review, so I’ll stop and rest abit.
