Let’s Play: Glory of Heracles III Part 12

Donnerstag, 5. Juni, 2014

I keep mentioning this game in my articles and have used several sample movie scenes of it as well. But one really needs to have experienced the game in full to appreciate its quality. If you haven’t been spoiled yet (or even if you have), watch this series of youtube videos first before you read any of the related articles. I’m planning a weekly release schedule.

If you haven’t seen it yet, start with part 1. Or better yet, play it yourself. There is a fan translation patch available at romhacking.net which I used for this Let’s Play.

As our heroes arrive in Troy the story is beginning to pick up speed. Is it really all that great to be immortal? And what is going on with the sun? Why is Heracles such a wimp? And what do you use a trojan horse for exactly?

This episode has some not so surprising turns of events you can see from a mile away, you wouldn’t believe the praise this game gets for its unexpected plot twists. But don’t be fooled, it’s kind of intended and the joke is on Reion I think for probably being the only one to not see through the situation in our last episode.

After discovering the works of director Nobuhiko Ōbayashi with his 1983 movie Toki o kakeru shōjo (The Girl Who Leapt Through Time) on the video on demand service Wii no Ma: Cinema no Ma, I came to understand that his early 1980ies movies seem to be intrinsically linked with the rise of otaku culture, that has become so popular in the West, and one of their favorite media, the video game. Toki o kakeru shōjo released close to the Family Computer (Nintendo Entertainment System in the West), Nintendo’s first console, which is also the reason why this movie was the first to be chosen for relase on the above mentioned video on demand service.

Another one of Ōbayashi’s movies from two years earlier, Nerawareta Gakuen (School Under Fire, 1981), also contains at least two striking connections with Nintendo. Let’s take a look at this scene from the movie, in which the protagonist Yuka Mitamura helps her class mate Kōji Seki win a kendō tournament using psychokinesis, a power she believes to have received from god.

With the travel wings, our heroes check up on some of the earlier locations to see what happened since their last visit. Then they finally make some progress in their search for the place from their dream. There are rumors about yet another immortal too.

In Driskos you can talk to the old man who founded the town to hear its origin story. Such old men who often ask you before telling their lengthy stories are another recurring motif in Nojima’s games, there are more examples of them in Glory of Heracles 4, in Final Fantasy VIII and the best known must be Maechen from Final Fantasy X.

Travel wings have become awfully expensive because due to severely limited availablity of the necessary resources demand greatly outstrips supplies. Our heroes will do something about this and help Daedalus out of his predicament. He is bound to pay back the favor later during the adventure.

Kanji Duel

Dienstag, 22. April, 2014

 

In eigenem Fenster spielen.

Dieses Spiel soll zum Üben von Vokabeln und schnellem Tippen dienen. Es ist inspiriert von Segas The Typing of the Dead, eine Parodie des Zombispiels The House of the Dead, bei der die Gegner durch Eintippen erschossen werden.

Einbettungskode (die Werte für die Höhe (height) und die Breite (width) lassen sich anpassen):

<iframe name="kanjiduel" src="http://playable.electrolit.net/kanjiduel/" height="450" width="800"></iframe>

Kanjivokabeln fliegen auf euch zu. Schreibt ihre Lesung, um sie ins Visier zu nehmen. Aber sie muss 100 % korrekt sein, um die Vokabel zu erledigen.

Einige Kanji haben mehr als eine Lesung. Nur eine jedoch kann das schwebende Kanji besiegen. Versucht es mit einer anderen Lesung, wenn die vorige nicht gewirkt hat.

Je näher ihr die Kanji euch auf die Pelle rücken lasst, desto häufiger werden sie auf euch schießen! Aber um euch anzugreifen, müssen sie ihre „Namen“ preisgeben, also nutzt diese Information, um sie zu erledigen, bevor sie euch erledigen.

Einmal getippt, kann ein Zeichen nicht mehr gelöscht werden. Müsst ihr eine falsche Lesung verwerfen, drückt die Leertaste, um jederzeit zu schießen.

Für Smartdevices ohne richtige Tastatur gibt es unten ein Touchtastenfeld.
