Games/Movies Pickups for June 2013

More games! And this time movies, too!  Triggerheart Exelica Enhanced (PS2) - Fun looking shmup with a unique enemy swinging mechanic that was originally on Xbox 360, then ported to PS2 the year after in Japan which is quite the strange trip backwards wouldn't you say? KOF: Maximum Impact Regulation "A" (PS2) - This is the arcade upgrade version of Maximum Impact 2 which only came out in Japan and was later ported to PS2. I've always enjoyed the Maximum Impact series even though they didn't perform well in sales for SNK. Homura (PS2) - I can't remember exactly why I originally wanted this game, but clearly something looked interesting or I wouldn't have put it on my want list. When I get around to it perhaps I'll remember what that was. *heh* Next 2 games not pictured Ace Combat 5: The Unsung War (PS2) - I've enjoyed Ace Combat 2 on the original PlayStation so perhaps I'll enjoy this one too. Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner 2 - Raidou Kuzunoha vs. King Abaddon (PS2) - My MegaTen PS2 collection is now complete!  Spaceballs - Probably my favorite parody film because it actually makes jokes and not just a bunch of references like in today's "parodys." Ninja Scroll - One of the classic animes of the 1990s. Not a lot of substance, but definitely a whole lot of flash. Death Proof - I really enjoy this movie and I know many don't, but just love Tarantino's dialog scenes and this one has more than is usual for him. Oh yeah, there's also a ton of great car stunts in the final act! Hard Boiled - One of John Woo's many great pre-hollywood action films. I also recommend The Killer and A Better Tomorrow. The Player - A very underrated satire of hollywood. A fun watch! Zatoichi - If you can get past the fairly distracting and poorly done CG blood effects it's an entertaining good time watching Takeshi Kitano play the blind swordsman, Zatoichi. Downfall - A very interesting dramatic look at the last moments of the Third Reich.
