  1. Great stuff phychotaku but I know you didn’t just challenge me, if so you don’t know what you got yourself into. Keep up the great work man.
    Also did it blur out for anyone else or is my graphics card starting to fail?

  2. Oh right I remember Ehrgeiz. Cool game. I never beat the dungeon mode though, I kept starving to death.

    Er…I mean Tobal 2. Yeah, the one NOT released in the US. And doesn’t have six FF7 characters in it. Yeah. >.>

    1. In my opinion Ehrgeiz had nothing on Tobal 2. It was a fair game. Felt more like Power Stone than a fighter, and Power Stone was really fun. And the dungeon mode in that was pretty cool. If I remember correctly it actually had weapons in it.

      And putting in FF characters in a game does not make it awesome, just look at FF X-2. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      1. i had a copy of FFX-2 but apparently you’re NOT supposed to wipe your rear with those??? idk they don’t work too well afterwords, but they make fun things to throw at homeless people

  3. Sure Tobal 2 was never released in America but it doesn’t seem that much different the Tobal no. 1 was. The dungeon crawling looks the same, it has most of the same character even Mufu and Udon just more then the original.

    1. Okay so at face value everything looks the same. Except for the fact that there’s an inventory system for your items, more characters, a village, and the graphics have been significantly upgraded.

      Now it may not seem that different but believe me when this game came out, it was awesome!

  4. What am I doing up at 2:30 in the morning? Oh, right, I’m watching Furious Freddie… wait… CURSE YOU PSYCHOTAKU! Again you interrupt my favorite shows with your random video game reviews! When will it end! D:

  5. The other day I tried to buy a ticket for freddie’s flights to get to the other side of the island, but instead of a ticket, I got an imported Japanese game. I can’t even read Japanese!!! >:^(

  6. Why couldn’t it come out in America?! Well, now I know about it.
    Hey, I was watching that Furious Freddie! I had almost mastered the Phoenix Blow! I’ll get that game if I can.

  7. YES! That game looks so awesome. Combos are like the greatest things in fighting games EVER.

    I was totally laughing at the fact that the list of things that are better in Japan included Power Rangers lol.

    Great job Psychotaku! ๐Ÿ˜€

  8. Aw man, I used to LOVE the original, used to play it on my Playstation all the time. I was ultra dissapointed when the sequel wasn’t released here.

    P.S. Nice Cardbo statue on your shelf.

  10. I may be twenty or more years late, but I’m starting to buy imported games. Mostly classics. Now if only I already had all the hardware I need to run them… D:

    At least hard-modding a US Snes was easy, it took a pair of needlenose pliers and about five seconds… but stupid Terranigma has a lockout chip! Lame-o’s!

  11. Guess i will never get to see freddie use all 3 epic moves at the same time. oh well il wait for a re-run unless Psychotaku picks to steal the show then as well. o_O

  12. Did I..did I just see a kung-fu fighting ferret or did I just imagine it. Either way, I think I need to go lie down.

    That was awesome :D. You got dungeon crawler in my fighting game! YOU GOT FIGHTING GAME IN MY DUNGEON CRAWLER!

  13. Do all Japanese games shoot out a rainbow when you open the case? If so, that’s pretty amazing.

    Also, your suit reminds me of Damon Gant from Phoenix Wright.

  14. Okay, that game looks really blasted awesome. Truly the American continent mourns when a good game doesn’t do well in sales. Thanks for bringing another great one to our attention Psychotaku!

  15. Wow!! This looks like a really cool game!! I wana try it! xD
    Stuff like this really keeps me working on learning Japanese!
    Another Awesome Episode! Can’t wait till the next one!
