This Week In Games
What are ye buyin'?
This is so good. I am almost in tears at how good this is. I love Chrono Trigger, but specifically I love its soundtrack. I also love Jay-Z. I can’t believe no-one ever thought about mixing the two together until now — but this incredible mash-up is here and it’s amazing.
Over the course of my 28 years of life, I’ve beaten more video games than I can count. I’ve never been the type of gamer who finds one game and sticks with it for months or years. Rather, from childhood on, I was the kid who would rent a different game from the local Blockbuster almost every week and beat it.
World maps in video games are usually pretty great. We love world maps! You can use them to track the results of your progression through some grand adventure as new locations become accessible and your control over the world grows. A well-crafted world map in any game is always a sign of high quality.
Over the past few months I’ve been anxiously awaiting the new PS3 title Tokitowa. While some are looking forward to the love story aspect or to its attempt to make a playable anime, the core of my anticipation is something altogether different: I’ve been dying to play another Japanese time travel story. To me, time travel is the perfect narrative setting. It can be used as a backdrop for any other type of story: mystery, action, romance, or even a magical girl anime. And when it comes to the exploration of time travel as a concept — and the sheer fun of a time travel adventure — there are few places better to look than Japanese games.
