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!

Richard Osmond came home one night to find a small key sitting on his coffee table and the telephone ringing off the hook. He answered the phone and was greeted with some bad news — his father’s home had caught on fire and the old man was missing. Accompanied by a policeman, Richard returned to the house to investigate and find any clues he could of his father’s disappearance or the fire.

As he was sifting through the ashes and debris, he came across an old key for the grandfather clock. He inserted the key into the clock and opened up a secret passage. Startled, he entered the passage only to find a large red book telling of the Rockwell dynasty. The family, as well as 45 other people, had vanished one year ago aboard the luxury boat Orpheus.

EchoNight-01bThe story then tells of two talisman stones — one blue and one red. It is fabled that a certain figure lusted for their power and with the stones, he could fulfill his wildest dreams and fantasies. Anyone with the stones has supreme power and is granted immortality and the ability to do whatever they’d like. Those with a heart will destroy them.

As Richard, you are then thrown into the past and aboard the still missing ship. You soon find out that everyone you encounter is a lost soul — a ghostly figure who never got the opportunity to make amends with loved ones or failed in the course of duty. In addition to finding your father, you vow to help the people who lost their lives aboard the ship by fulfilling their last wishes or regrets. If you do, they can finally rest in peace.

Echo Night is a first-person adventure game from the makers of King’s Field. As you journey around the ship, you come across items that are needed to unlock a specific part of the ship or solve puzzles. These puzzles usually include giving a certain item to a ghost, which then opens up a flashback scenario. Continue reading ‘Echo Night, (SLPS-01518)’ »

Wild Arms is a Western-themed role-playing video game developed by Japanese software company Media.Vision and Sony’s internal studio Contrail. Originally released in Japan in 1996 for the Sony PlayStation video game console, it was later translated and released in North America in 1997 and Europe in 1998 by Sony Computer Entertainment. It is noteworthy for not only being one of the first role-playing video games on the PlayStation, but also one of the few to feature a Western American setting and motif. The game features 2D computer graphics for normal gameplay, while battle sequences are rendered in 3D.

WildArms-01dTaking place in the fantasy world of Filgaia, Wild Arms follows the adventures of a band of miscreants and adventurers called Dream Chasers who scour the world in search of excitement and fortune. The player assumes control of a young boy named Rudy who has the ability to operate powerful weapons called Ancient Relic Machines (ARMs), forbidden remnants of a lost age that resemble guns. Along with his companions Jack and Cecilia, the group must use their respective skills to navigate through the vast wastelands and dungeons of Filgaia and prevent an otherworldly threat from reviving their lost leader and destroying the world.

The story builds gradually, and though a bit confusing at times, reveals interesting bits of our characters’ sordid pasts. Overworld adventuring is standard, but Wild ARMs stands out in its Dungeon scenarios, presenting challenging and downright fun puzzles to solve around every corner.
