Created by Hideo Kojima, this 2003 action RPG may be one of the most innovative titles ever made for the GBA.
Its cartridge has a light sensor built into it, forcing players to occasionally rush out into the sunshine to charge up their character’s primary weapon - a bit of a problem when it's raining, but a clever idea nevertheless.
The Big Short, the film adaptation of Michael Lewis' book of the same name about the causes of the financial crisis, opens in UK cinemas this weekend.
How will the story stack up against the greatest films about business?
Although it sounds like a gimmick, the sensor dovetails perfectly with the game’s story, which sees its protagonist, Django, fighting vampires with his solar gun.
Like Kojima’s favours stealth over direct combat, and this, combined with its day/night cycle and expansive fantasy world, makes it one of the GBA’s most unique and absorbing RPG experiences.
I had tried to play the game a few years ago when the fan translation came out. The main problem I have is that all of the characters except for one of them, treat the girl (that’s you by the way) like sheer crap. But the main character is so dumb that she wants their love and affection anyways and so she decides to lose weight to impress these assholes. considering the fact that this game is ONLY available for sale in asian markets — 89 KG is 196 lbs…. Now before you get all mad and butthurt, I’m not trying to stereotype (or body shame anyone for that matter), I’m just saying that over there, with body shaming and stuff, and the peer pressure to fit in, o they would typically be a laughing stock at that weight because you know, that’s just how their society rolls over there. There are better games out there, that actually you know, help you to burn calories, such as “Walk it Off” or “Dance Dance Revolution” or “Just Dance!Predictably, this allows Jill to drill through certain parts of the game map, adding a pleasing sense of freedom to the usual running, jumping and collecting mix you’d expect from a platformer.Unsurprisingly, , but it’s a brilliant game, and it’s a pity that it wasn’t commercially popular enough to prompt Game Freak to make a sequel or two – a DS version with stylus-controlled drilling sections would have been a great, logical progression of the GBA game's mechanics.Although not underrated from a critical perspective (most who played a fun, quirky platform game with a manic sense of energy.You control Jill, a young girl who travels everywhere in the titular Dozer – a kind of mecha suit with a gigantic drill attachment mounted on the front.
