Obscure Video Games: Zettai Zetsumei Dangerous Jiisan DS

Aug 15 // Obscure Video Games
Now while the objective of each mini-game is usually obvious, the reason you are doing them rarely is. So I asked Grandpa for some explanation, and here's what he said: "When you go for a walk, always bring along a bag of dog poo in case a homeless person asks you for food." "Grandpa's inner thigh is feeling very sore today. Could you be a good boy and massage it for me?" "The roaches aren't screaming; they just have built-up air in their shells." "Stop being a pussy; this is how real men bowl." "We're taking a trip to the moon today, but I need you to fill up the gas tank." "Grandpa's gonna get you some ice cream like he promised, but first he needs a visit to the little boys' room." [embed]297486:59891:0[/embed] This is just the tip of the old man's iceberg; there are a lot more mini-games here every bit as crazy as these. So go ahead and touch your Grandpa. You might like it more than you think.

Because "Canada" sounds like "Kaneda"
Today is Canada day. And since "Canada" sounds kind of, sort of like "Kaneda," the hero of Otomo Katsuhiro's groundbreaking cyberpunk manga-turned-anime Akira, that's reason enough for me to put on my favorite red jacket and talk about one of his favorite pieces of media ever... Japanese, Canadian, or otherwise.
