Why do you post mainly Japanese video games, I wouldn't call them obscure just a different nationality that wasn't localized, some of these are quite popular in other nations. Where's the American or even PAL obscure games?

Oh I’ve done plenty of Western games. I just like Japanese games better, and that’s mostly what I play for fun. And the only reason I do this blog is for fun. My fun. There are plenty of great blogs that only do Western games, like dos-ist-gut. So if you don’t like my blog, just unfollow me, and go follow them instead.

But before you go, you might want to check out just a few of the Western game GIFs that I have done:

Bandana City

Dark Seed

Deus Ex Machina

Fury of the Furries

Haunted House

Rex Ronin

Rick Dangerous 2

Rockstar Ate My Hamster

Smurf

Starquake

Terramex

The Colonel’s Bequest

Thunder Hoop

Waxworks

This “tube shooter” is sometimes compared to Rez, but it came out two years before (and only in Japan). It’s a superficial comparision though. Mainly it’s the art style and thumping breakbeat techno that’s similar; the games feel and play a bit differently. I really enjoyed it (especially the puzzle-solving parts) and I highly recommend hunting it down. And, in case you’re wondering, pretty much everything is in English — not that you really need it in this kind of game.
