  1. Man, this is looking more and more like my collection! Minato No Trasia is known simply as Traysia here in the US. It’s definitely an acquired taste as it’s a bit hard for a while until you grasp the battle system. I hated the game the first time I played it because my party kept getting wiped out, but I finally say down and gave it a chance over a few weekends and it became a favorite.

    Super Daisenryaku is like Advanced Daisenryaku in that unless you like that type of strategy game it’s easy to dislike it, lol. Then again, SystemSoft is one of the best strategy game makers for this sort of game on consoles and has a VERY large catalog of titles for many platforms. They also did Master of Monsters, one of the best fantasy strategy games on the Genesis (you can play with up to three other players).

    Zoom! I can take or leave – it’s cool because it’s funny, but it also gets hard (well, for me) after a while. I don’t have The Kick Boxing, but I think I’ve played it here (it looks like Best of the Best). Dick Tracy I actually didn;t like at first because it’s so darn day-glo it game me a headache. But I’ve come to appreciate it a bit more over time.

    A quick note on touch-ups – I’d use something like a pigment-based marker over a Sharpie, as those don’t bleed usually don’t change color over time and are as permanent as a Sharpie. There are a few manufacturers (Sakura and Copic are two), so try one out and see if you like them.


  2. Minato No Trasia is Traysia?! I had no idea. I don’t know why I didn’t recognize the screen shots… But this is good news. I have Traysia so I will be able to play this RPG after all 🙂
    I’m glad to hear you opinion on Traysia. A friend of mine told me he didn’t like it at all. Similar to your first impressions. Maybe he didn’t give it enough time to learn it’s ways.

    I do like strategy games but being all in Japanese will cripple any chance I might have had. But the case does look good, so I love Super Daisenryaku anyways.

    I’ve noticed that Sharpies do bleed. I’ll check out Sakura and Copic. Thanks for the tip!


    • LOL! I read your first comment before I left work and I was going to say I believe you when you say you’re going to get Dick Tracy… because you always follow through!
      …but you got it even before I could say it! 😛
      £5.99 with shipping seems pretty good for one game. Let me know what you think of it when you try it out.
      I’m looking forward to your Dick Tracy blog post!


      • I’ve always found the movie so darn weird to watch, but it’s worth a look if you have two hours to kill and don’t mind being blinded by the art direction and its use of so much color.


        • I know I’ve seen the movie but it’s been so long I can barely remember anything about it. Except that it was very much over the top. For the time the costumes and makeup were pretty bold and unique that is couldn’t help but catch your attention!
