My interest level for Zone of the Enders HD collection was very low at first. When Konami announced that the collection will include the demo for Metal Gear Rising Revengeance, my level of interest shot sky high. The original ZOE was released along the same time as the launch of the PlayStation 2. This time around, the HD re-release is also accompanied by Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner, the sequel to the original.
I don’t remember much of ZOE. I remember seeing a magazine ad and all I could focus on was the Metal Gear Solid 2 demo announcement. I did buy the game when it was first released, just for the Metal Gear Solid 2 demo, and tossed the ZOE disc to the side. ZOE is as basic as it can get. Storyline is much like any other anime that was produced. Typical simple boy stumbles upon the Oribital Frame (the giant robot in the series), tragic stuff happens, boy becomes hero.
But what ZOE lacks in story it makes up for in gameplay. The controls are so easy to master that a young kid can play it. Although up-converted to HD, the graphics are still blocky and you have to endure cut scenes similar to PlayStation 1. It is so hard to force yourself to time travel, so to speak, to play such old games, however if you want to up your street I.Q. regarding Hideo Kojima’s games, then you cant go wrong with this one.
Little King’s Story got its start on the Nintendo Wii originally and it gained the attention of at least a niche crowd. Now on the PlayStation Vita, Little King’s Story has been adapted, altered, and rewritten to tell a set of familiar, but somewhat new, tales.
This top down, strategy RPG follows the story of the main protagonist known as King Corobo. After his city was thrown into disarray, King Corobo’s first duty is to re-establish order within what is left of his kingdom by expanding the town, increasing the number of people who live within, and assigning them job duties that can be used to navigate the world, achieve funds, or simply to fight one of the many horrible, yet cuddly, monsters that have taken over the lands.
