He was the second son of Oda Nobuhide, a deputy shugo (military governor) with land holdings in Owari province. Nobunaga lived a life of continuous military conquest, eventually conquering a third of Japanese daimyo before his death in 1582.

An ancient weapon of unknown origin was found in a German castle some fifty years ago. Since it was obviously something of value, it was decided that it would be awarded to the best fighter in the world. After all, who would appreciate a weapon more than an experienced fighter? Eleven of the world’s finest combatants (including Cloud Strife, Tifa Lockhart and Vincent Valentine) have set out to claim this prize.

The mysterious artifact came to be known as Ehrgeiz, and the tournament that was built around it took on the very same name. Now rumors suggest that the door to a long-forgotten land can be unlocked with this weapon; a land that could reveal the secret of immortality. The tournament has taken on a whole new meaning!

Ehrgeiz-01eEhrgeiz is a 3D fighting game that takes place within elevated environments. As in most fighting titles, players seek to wear down their opponent’s life meter before time runs out, all while protecting their own character from harm. A series of ten fights comprise the tournament, with each fight requiring two victories in order to progress.

Moves consist of high, mid and low attacks, guarding by standing in front of the opponent, special attacks in the form of projectiles, and interrupts, which counter incoming special attacks. Characters can also run, crouch, jump, roll on the ground, perform throws and evade attacks by spinning their bodies.

Three modes of play include Arcade (fight all of the characters in succession until you defeat the final boss character), Versus (choose the stage, set the handicap and challenge a friend) and Practice (characters have unlimited time and health). Yet the game also includes several extras to separate it from other fighting titles. These include the following four mini-games: Infinity Battle, Battle Runner, Battle Beach and Battle Panel.

Infinity Battle is similar to a survival mode in that you must defeat as many computer opponents as you can before your life meter runs out. Battle Runner is a racing game that has players running around trying to finish a course before their opponent. Of course, combat is encouraged and successful attacks will help characters run faster!

The falcata is a type of sword typical of Pre-Roman Hispania (the Iberian Peninsula, modern Spain and Portugal), similar to the Greek kopis or Nepalese kukri. The term Falcata is not ancient. It seems to have been coined by Fernando Fulgosio in 1872, on the model of the Latin expression ensis falcatus “sickle-shaped sword” (which, however, refers to the Harpe). He presumably went with falcata rather than falcatus because the Spanish word for sword espada is feminine, although there are other presumable theories. The name caught on very quickly, and is now firmly entrenched in the scholarly literature.

Falcata-01dFalcata was one of the first games released on PlayStation in Japan, and for sure it was a strange one, the game is a mix between an strategy board game and a RPG game. In the game screen, the game draws a line connecting some different circles on a map, given a genuine and bizarre sense of atmosphere.

The game is set in 1500 BC in a land with different cities and hostile tribes, that makes most of the people to travel to other lands. The goal of the game is to restore the land so the people can stop their endless wandering, and finally arrived to that land and that will end with the tribal fights. The player’s character will be the hero to reach that? Only time will tell.

The game features 6 different parties that can be customized in their clothes and hair, all of them with their own stats. The game-play is about going around those places and examine them, in some of them you will have to fight and then the game takes the usual rpg style with turns to choose the proper actions that the player wants his characters to do. But instead of fights he can also pay to avoid the fights, make pacts or discover relics, etc.

The game credited with spawning a one-on-one fighting craze in the arcades makes its PlayStation debut, along with two popular updates, in this three-game compilation from Capcom. Included on the disc are the following titles: Street Fighter II: The World Warrior, Street Fighter II: Champion Edition, and Street Fighter II Turbo: Hyper Fighting. World Warrior has you choosing one of eight characters, from Ryu and Guile to Blanka and Chun-Li, while challenging rival fighters in exotic locales across the globe. With the included revisions to the core Street Fighter II engine, you’ll be able to play as the original game’s four bosses and master new airborne special attacks while battling at higher speeds. The PlayStation version also supports analog controls with vibration feedback. A memory card is required to save high scores and settings.

The second compilation was originally released in Japan as the fifth volume of the Capcom Generation, a series of compilations containing classic Capcom games. In North America, only the Street Fighter compilation was released, whereas in the PAL region Street Fighter Collection 2 was released separately from the first four volumes (which were released together as a bundle). Like the first compilation, it was released for the PlayStation and Sega Saturn, although the Sega Saturn version was only released in Japan due to the discontinued support for the console outside Japan.

CapcomRetroGameCollection-05eThis compilation contains a “Title Menu” where the player can choose from any of three Street Fighter II games featured in the compilation: the original Street Fighter II, Champion Edition (Street Fighter II Dash in Japan) and Hyper Fighting (Street Fighter II Dash Turbo in Japan). Some minor changes were made to game-play, compared to the arcade versions of the games. A “Collection” mode is also featured where the player can view strategies, character profiles and artwork specific to each game, some which become available after meeting certain requirements.
