Eight PS2 games are headed to PS4 tomorrow

Yesterday, Sony inadvertently published a video for Level-5's role-playing game Dark Cloud ahead of its (unannounced) release on PlayStation 4 via emulation. Now, we have our confirmation. Eight souped-up PS2 titles are heade...

Obscure Video Games: Michigan: Report from Hell

Oct 24 // Obscure Video Games
You also get points for camera activity. These are separated into three categories: suspense, immoral, and erotic. For suspense, an example would be finding a dead body. An immoral activity would be filming a reporter getting killed. When stumbling upon a pornography stash, you'll receive erotic points (along with the sound of a woman moaning). The depth of the game comes not only from the points system, but also your news team itself. If you let a reporter die, then a new reporter has to take their place. They all look different and have different names and personalities. So, depending on who lives or dies (and when they die), you can experience different events, explore new areas and hear distinct dialog on multiple playthroughs. Your sound man Brisco can't die during the game, as he mostly seems to be around for comic relief. However, if you pay attention you can occasionally get some helpful advice from the man. I know I may sound overwhelmingly positive about Michigan so far, but it definitely has some issues. For one, the dialog is ridiculously bad, and goes on for far too long. I actually enjoy the campy conversations, but they're not for everyone. Ironically, despite all the dialog, there actually isn't much of a plot or story revealed here; and a lot of obvious questions go unanswered. The graphics are serviceable, but don't expect Silent Hill 2 quality. The puzzles aren't exactly brilliant either and mostly just involve finding keys. Also, as I mentioned before, you don't even get to actually perform the combat yourself; telling your reporter to shoot a gun for you isn't really that fun. So if you're an old-school survival horror fan looking for something a little weird and different, then Michigan may be up your alley. However, you should probably first watch the video below just to make sure you can stomach it. Be warned, my emulator runs a bit slow -- which has the delightful effect of making everyone sound severely inebriated. You may want to have a few drinks yourself before playing it.

Obscure Video Games: The Aka-Champion

Jun 13 // Obscure Video Games
The snowboard slap-fighting in my GIF above is just one way to brutalize your babies. Some more examples are: electrified jump rope vicious polar bears skydiving "accidents" giant killer snowballs And that's just the tip of the iceberg. There's a ton of dangerous mini-games here, and they're divided into summer and winter events. Some are fun, some are frustrating, and some are just weird. There's even a two-player mode, so you can injure infants with a friend. The Aka-Champion isn't an easy game to find (even online); but if you see it for a reasonable price then grab that baby and see if you can beat it. [embed]293652:58928:0[/embed]
