Obscure and Rare Games

Post by densha on Mon Oct 15, 2007 11:24 pm

Please post any obscure and rare games. Include coverart, images, description, and a Youtube video of the game if possible.


Please don't list just the game titles!.





wordimagesoundplay (PS2)

WISP is a collection of experiences for the PS2 console. Human and strange. Animal and familiar. Happy and sad. Music made from people. Stories crossing each other. Japanese and English. Language and translation. Sound and shapes. Seeing stories and hearing tales. Films and pictures. Music and sound.



There is gameplay on WISP, but there are no games There is no story that holds the whole thing together, but there are stories. WISP isn't a music title but it's filled with music.

Audio and music composed by Underworld and Johnny Conquest commissioned by Sony Entertainment Japan.

Flower, Sun and Rain (PS2)

On the island of Lospass, sits a seaside resort unlike any other. Flower, Sun and Rain may be more apt as the title of a National Geographic piece but amidst a tropical paradise, it's the epitome of lavish surroundings and well-heeled relaxation. Amenities galore, beautiful women, and modern contrivances are it's other perks. Detective Kodai Sumio figures it's be an enjoyable couple of days at the resort but a host of pampered guests and socialites alter his immediate destiny by badgering him for help. Aided by a multi-purpose device called a "Dial", Sumio-san divines the circumstances surrounding a situation or a problem by using the gadget in conjunction with the game manual which relates locations of places and about the people encountered in the game. An additional feature of the "Dial" is the ability to determine the nature or purpose of an object.




Rendered in 3-D, Flower, Sun, and Rain pleases the eye with it's fluid animation and sumptuous graphics. The gameplay may be likened to standard detective sims where clues are ferreted, folks questioned, and point A must be visited before going to point B. All in all, an enjoyable and unique game brimming with interesting scenarios, characters, and puzzles to solve.

Koufuku Sousakan (PS2)

Sometime in the far off future, technology has progressed to the point where life experiences may be fulfilled entirely on a computer. The new development bodes well for the legions of miserable citizens roaming the streets of Japan with disgruntled lives and destitute dreams.

Dubbed CLOVER, the technology serves as an indulgent Matrix, if you will, where potential happiness may be found. When the CLOVER system debuts, 100 unhappy people immediately sign up as trial subjects to find true happiness inside an alternate reality. Things seem to be going well until CLOVER conks out and traps the 100 souls inside its system. As the certified Happiness Manager, the player takes the reins of the system and guides its hostages to individual fulfillment and happiness while keeping the illusion of normalcy inside CLOVER alive. Some of the malcontents in the system suffer from mundane tragedies such as impending bankruptcy, unrequited love, an infertile womb, disinterested parents and other believable life dramas.



In addition to the 100 normal citizens, there is a rabble rouser who works to bring down the happiness level of the CLOVER collective. When any one person reaches a high level of happiness, the trouble maker challenges the player on a 7x7 grid. Defeat him and the happy individual stays happy. Losing will revert the happy person back into another recruit in the army of misery.

0 Story (PS2)

0 Story, pronounced "Love Story," was developed by General Entertainment and published by Enix for the Sony PlayStation2. The live-action digital novel spans 2 DVD-ROMs. You take the role of a young man who dies and becomes a ghost. The ghost meets with an angel, who tells him that he can be brought back to life if he finds true love within six days. When the ghost is sent back to earth, he sees a girl sitting by the seashore....

The game is quite straightforward, and the story progresses on its own, as if you are watching a movie. In certain scenes you are required to make a decision, and the story splinters from there. But while the paths may differ from game to game, the final goal remains the same.




The other interactive action in the game is shooting arrows. You must occasionally shoot arrows at the girl, allowing you to read her mind. Reading her mind raises a love meter, as does picking the right paths and winning minigames. The minigames range from baseball to rhythm/dancing games, similar to Parappa.

Yoshinoya (PS2)

A frenetic cinema introduces players to the staff at a virtual Yoshinoya and some scary looking customers. The customers are drawn that way for a reason...as we'll soon explain. The decor in the video version of Yoshinoya looks fairly true to life with a simple counter area for customers to sit down at and steaming bowls of food that are served up with lightning speed. Players take up the role of a menial laborer who shuffles out food like an automaton. Customers line up outside the automatic door in an endless procession and alight upon the stools in hungry anticipation. Face each customer, press a button, and they're served with a bowl of food per their order. When customers are happy, they'll spin and seemingly do a little dance on a full belly. However, when an order takes a bit longer than normal to dole out, hell hath no fury... Watch fascinating facial expressions of anger and frustration appear on the face of the slighted one.



Bosses who appear to be beef bowl connoisseurs appear after each successfully completed stage. These overly demanding customers have special needs and beef bowls have to be prepared according to their specifications or they simply won't be satisfied.

Dobutsu Bancho / Cubivore (GC)

In the circle of life, all beasts contribute to the never-ending road of consumption. In a theoretical jungle, rat eats roach, cat eats rat, and vampire bat saps the blood of cat and rat. When rat, cat, and bat succumb to the reaper, roach feasts on all.

Doubutsu Bancho, loosely translated into Animal Leader, takes the concept of consumption and plies it into a unique video game. At the onset, you take control of a simple mammal with limited mobility. All similar sized animals roaming the fields are fair game to your appetite, as you are to theirs. As a predator, you kill prey by knocking them down and biting them until dead. Eat an animal with superior mobility, such as a pair of legs, and you'll evolve on the spot. Other attributes may be culled by consuming various prey and assimilating new skills and motor functions.



Scattered across the land are animal bosses which when defeated, pass on their attributes and titles to you. Once you're the king of a region, it's time for mating in order to pass the bloodline down to a new generation where you start over again as offspring. Although it's a new beginning, you're also faster, sleeker, and better endowed to carry on the Animal Leader lineage and take on new challenges.

Yeah, I've been after it for a long time (I'd give it a **** for the Sony Rarity guide, if you want to add it.). SUDA51 developed it (Killer7, Michigan: Report from Hell, No More Heroes, and the upcoming Fatal Frame IV).

Gussun Oyoyo-S (SS)

Not really rare but a really obscure puzzle game. Xing have provided Saturn owners with the original Irem made Arcade version plus a Saturn version which features far better audio but same game graphics. The game is sort of like Lemmings in a way were by you have to guide your little guy to the exit of the level.



Thankfully Gussun Oyoyo S is aimed more at the fun aspect rather than the taxing aspect of a puzzle game. The game plays by blocks falling from the sky which must be placed together to form a path for our little guy to reach the exit. There are many other little extras that fall from the sky such as bombs which can be used to blow up any misplaced blocks. There's even a two player mode to keep people who like a human opponent happy.

Gekibo 2 (PS2)

David Goldman, intrepid newspaper photographer extraordinaire, goes on assignment in Japan to capture wild and wacky events on film. Under seemingly normal circumstances, which can quickly get out of hand, David clicks and snaps opportune and interesting shots which will please his chief editor and ensure his continued employment at the Times. David's aspiration since childhood has been the snaring of a Pulitzer and the Japanese assignment dovetails neatly with his dream. The first level plants our maniacally grinning friend on a Japanese street where citizens coalesce and dawdle. The people eventually start hamming it up, ignite incidents, and essentially open themselves up for blooper-magnitude photo ops. A limited amount of film requires a game plan of paucity when taking photos, limiting yourself to only the money shots. Later levels find David in a forest filled with spirits, a sports arena, a zoo, and a shopping center, among others. The game touts support of the Popegg camera once it's released and players may take a photo of themselves and paste their face on in-game characters if so inclined.



Gekibo 2 was meant to be released for NTSC-U Playstation 2, as Polaroid Pete. The game was cancelled shorty before release.

Yakiniku Bugyou Bonfire! (PS2)

Sizzling barbecue game, apparently a tie-in with Japanese barbecue chain Gyu-Kaku, in which you must please three customers at once by serving up perfectly seared slabs of various meats and vegetables. The massive barbecue takes up most of the screen and can hold twelve food items at once, though you will not feel confident enough to grill regularly on the spots in the middle of the grill, where the intense heat will turn your prize steak into disgusting ash if your attention is distracted for even a split-second.



Depending on their happiness, customers rant or sigh with pleasure in appropriate measure. Drawing anticipatory cries from these ravenous masticators as you flip a golden brown meat bun at just the right moment, sending up a fragrant plume of vapor, does something to get one's juices flowing. But you gotta move your chopsticks fast to keep everything on the grill simmering to perfection--take a moment too long to flip that steak and it's ruined. Keeping track of the timing of each piece of barbecue, with different foods cooking at different speeds, can get quite hectic. Go for cooking in the middle of the grill as well as the outsides and you've got quite a tricky task ahead.

I like those obscure games. Some of them like Flower, Sun and Rain are not even listed in the play-asia catalouge so it has got to be very rare and I would like to own a sealed copy! :!:

Lack of Love (DC)

It's certainly a strange RPG. The game starts with a nice opening
sequence of an alien coming to a planet. The alien seems to be of a
peaceful nature until he reaches the planet that is. Once he lands
there he sends out 100's of robotic machines. Then the game starts. You control an egg under
the water. The egg soon rises to the surface and changes in to some
sort of snail type creature.




The music in L.O.L. is by the
famous Japanese composer Ryuichi Sakamoto, who is responsible for many
beautiful pieces of music. You may know of his work from the now
aging movie Merry Christmas Mr. Launce. Surfactant to say that the
music in L.O.L. is beautiful.
