1: The Regal Cosmos of Katamari DamacyIn the cosmos of gaming, where royalty reigns supreme, one would expect a game named Katamari Damacy to exude grandeur. Surprisingly, this game takes a delightfully unconventional approach. Katamari Damacy Re-roll, a remastered version for PC, invites players into a world of odd aesthetics and whimsical controls. Tasked with recreating the galaxy after a drunken mishap by The King of All Cosmos, players control The Prince as they roll a magical ball, picking up objects and transforming them into stars. Brace yourself for an extraordinary journey that will lead you to strange new worlds of comedy.
2: Embracing Chaos in Stranger of ParadiseStranger of Paradise may not be the epitome of gaming brilliance, as it occasionally stumbles into cheesy and cringe-inducing moments, displaying a lack of tact. However, once you delve deeper into this ultra-edgy game, you'll discover a solid almost-Soulslike experience. Assume the role of Jack Garland, an ardent chaos destroyer, and engage in battles against respawning enemies. Employ tactical strategies reminiscent of Dark Souls or Elden Ring, and you'll find yourself somewhat at home in this peculiar realm.
3: Friday Night Horrors in Killer7When the clock strikes Friday night, it's time for fun, and what better way to indulge than in the Grasshopper Manufacture game Killer7? Originally released on Gamecube, this HD remaster of the blocky-low poly horror game is a rule unto itself. Step into the shoes of Harman Smith's fractured psyche, embodied by a group of seven killers, each possessing unique abilities to annihilate enemies. Traverse a designated path in this on-rails adventure, transforming combat into a thrilling shooting gallery. Prepare for a cult following-inducing experience unlike any other.
4: Final Fantasy XII's Unseen BrillianceOften overshadowed in discussions of the best Final Fantasy games, Final Fantasy XII deserves its moment in the spotlight. With the inclusion of quality-of-life improvements from the Japanese-exclusive Zodiac International version, this game ascends to the top of the hierarchy. Its unique combat system allows your party members to act autonomously, and you can seamlessly switch between characters as battles progress. The game also offers a fascinating feature: the ability to customize commands for each character, providing hundreds of possibilities. Just as this sale offers a range of unique experiences, Final Fantasy XII explores new frontiers in RPG gameplay.
5: Mastering the Grind on the Steam DeckAs many gamers know, grinding is often an integral part of the gaming experience. Luckily, the Steam Deck, with its 4x fast forward feature, is the perfect companion for tackling those level-grinding sessions. Whether you're exploring the whimsical cosmos of Katamari Damacy or engaging in battles against chaotic forces in Stranger of Paradise, the Steam Deck ensures an efficient and enjoyable gaming journey.
Green Man Gaming's Japanese game sale is a cosmic celebration of gaming diversity, offering peculiar adventures and hidden treasures for PC gamers. From the regal absurdity of Katamari Damacy to the edgy battles of Stranger of Paradise, and the Friday night horrors of Killer7, this sale caters to every taste.
