Suda 51 and Seaman creator making the Four Rooms of games

11:00 PM on 10.13.2011 // Jonathan Holmes

I love the 3DS for a lot of reasons. One of the biggest is that it's the last place for games that are not quite AAA budget HD titles, but not quite $1-$15 downloadable, to potentially thrive. With the PSP and the Wii both on the cusp of passing the torch to their HD successors, the 3DS is the last place where "punk rock" games might find success on the retail market. 

Case in point; Guild 01. It's a collection of 4 different 3DS games from 4 different creators, which is interesting enough in itself. It only gets better from there. The first game comes from Japanese stand-up comedian Yoshiyuki Hirai. It's called Rental Bukiya de Omasse, and it's about running an item shop in an adventure RPG, not unlike Recettear and that one part of Dragon Quest IV. Their next game comes from Vagrant Story and Final Fantasy XII veteran Yasumi Matsuno. It's called Crimson Shroud, and it takes place 1,000 years in the past, before magic became commonplace. There has been magic around for 1,000 years and no one told me? What a bunch of jerks!

Then there is Air Porter, the airport simulator from the creator of Seaman. The slogan of the game is "Check Your Luggage on Time!", which is makes it instantly amazing. Finally, we have a new title from Suda 51 called Kaiho Shojo. It's about the President of New Japan flying a giant robot (called the "Liberation Machine") and kicking all the asses; the ones that belong to the evil criminals who stole a Shizuma drive-type thing. Sounds too much like Metal Wolf Chaos you say? Not to worry, this President is a young woman, and she's still in High School! Try to act surprised!

This collection of games will form the Predaking of videogames, and it will be better and stronger than every other videogame ever made.

Sonic Lost World is coming to PC on November 2nd for $25! I may double dip, hopefully they'll make the final boss less rage-inducing. Ah well, I can always grind for extra lives lol.

Went to play MGSV, got prompted to download the MGO data; it's not on the PS Store yet. Or maybe it's Kojima-san's way of telling me it's not the real MGO data, but is instead a janitor who once protected me from a puddle of pee and now wears my face.

Recently watched the Cannon Films documentary, by the director of Not Quite Hollywood. Super entertaining, hilarious, and it almost made me want to watch some of the Cannon films. Almost.

Tip for those who have plasma TVs and are playing MGSV; go into settings and make the weapon icon only appears when you're aiming. I had to buy a new TV because the weapon icon got permanently burned into my plasma.

I was excited to learn one of my favorite Philip K. Dick novels, The Man in the High Castle, would be receiving its own TV show. After watching the pilot, I'm cautiously optimistic. Looking forward to the rest in November.

I'm going to be honest; this is my new favourite line in anything ever. GOTY 2015 and all that. Also cocks: [img][/img]
I thought Laura Kate's Destiny piece for Polygon was pretty neat.
