Rhythm Heaven, indeed: Technictix


I have a really cool life. Case in point: last night, I recorded RetroforceGo!, which was comprised of Topher, Stella and myself talking about Japanese rhythm games for two hours. Niero heard the majority of my end of the conversation and was inspired (as was I when I was done -- I wanted to play every game we had talked about!) When I signed off, there were stacks of rhythm games on the coffeetable. Unfortunately, we didn't get past the first one we played (to be continued tonight!), but it was worth it, because I discovered a totally awesome PS2 game I had never played before.

That game is Technictix, which you can see in action here. It's very simply: you move your character around on a board, stand in the middle of a ring, and push a button when the inner ring meets the outer ring in time with the music. PURE ADDICTION. We played until 4 am. I'm wiped today but it was totally worth it. It was in Japanese and English, with the menus mainly in the latter so it is very easy to navigate. Each time you complete a level successfully, you unlock a new character to play.

Track it down if you like rhythm games, it was totally fun. I'm going back to sleep now =p
