Guilty Gear Xrd -Sign- Demo Nov 25th-Dec 8th

A free download for all PS Plus subscribers. Play a limited, demo version of the upcoming fighting game: Guilty Gear Xrd -Sign-. I’ve never played this series before but it’s an anime lovefest. From what I can tell the main characters are all original, and in typical fighting game fashion all have a backstory that plays out over the course of the game. The demo has two characters available Sol Badguy and Ky Kiske. Watch me take “control” of Sol Badguy above and barely defeat Chipp Zanuff.

Looking forward to the full release of Guilty Gear Xrd -Sign- on Dec 16th. With animation this good looking, I wish this game would have some crossover characters from popular anime like the Japanese game Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax does.

Everything had turned out just fine, there was nothing to be afraid of, until that night at bed time, when the lights went out…

A Disney State of Mind

People seem to think Summer ends after Labor day, truth is, Autumn doesn’t start until September 22nd or 24th pretty sure. What PS2 journey would be complete without tapping into the Kingdom Hearts series, the unexpected combination of characters from Disney and Final Fantasy. Just enough time for one more in the Summer of Playstation 2 and I’ve committed to finishing this sucker.

I know kung fu

Forget what you know about video games based on movies for just a minute. Now imagine a movie that you loved (or in this case a trilogy). Wouldn’t it be great to continue that experience in game form; to relive those awesome moments with you controlling the action. I believe that was always the intent with movie games but it almost never seems to work out. Perhaps game developers should take a look back on some PS2 era games because The Matrix: Path of Neo is a great game.
