It’s been awhile! My 4-day stay at the hospital was a real drag. But hey, I’m back and ready to share with you yet another show you should never ever even think of missing, ever – make way for Gintama!
Background: Year 18xx at Edo when Samurai were still prominent, things take a sudden turn when a group of aliens called the Amanto try to conquer Earth while the Samurai try to defend it. At the latter’s defeat, the Amanto engaged in a piece treaty and placed a ban on carrying swords in public – leading to the decline of Samurai and their usefulness to society.
Technology, however, boosted all the way up to the point where humans are able to use flying cars, laser guns, surf the internet and play MMORPG with other avatars from other planets, whatever your modern/fictional sorts may. The general look would be mixing Kenshin Himura’s old Edo with today’s world with a hint of your inordinate science-fiction spice.
Plot: We follow the life of silver-haired Sakata Gintoki, a Samurai-turned-freelancer who runs Odd Jobs Gin along with his friends Shinpachi Shimura and Kagura. Odd Jobs is where our three heroes take up any kind of job as long as they’ll get paid and in turn, be able to pay their rent. Despite that though, Gin-san keeps his Bushido standing high so bending his principles is out of the question.
I’m already a retired veteran of the PlayStaion 2, but something kept telling me my PS2 experience won’t be complete without taking those Japanese only-released games for a spin. Pity that I already sold my console, but with PCSX2, I have been able to do just that!
Of course, a good machine is needed to play. Though I was able to play 2D games in my old Pentium 4 laptop with stock specs, the thing crashed after punching in FFX. It went smoothly though when I tried it in my i5 1GB-video desktop. Playing the old games again was totally reminiscent, and I just realized PS2 graphics weren’t as bad as I thought they were.
