Beating back some balance into the world.

Sudeki, a vibrant anime-ish action-RPG with exciting real-time battles and a robust character development system, is available on GOG.com for only $5.99.

Sudeki, a world torn apart into light, shadow and dark. Rent asunder by deceit and betrayal, the land cries out for a peace that only four united heroes can bring. Beyond the protective walls of Illumina Castle lie miles of pastoral, rolling countryside, though once a serene landscape, the Aklorian forces have transformed the countryside into a charred battlefield. Simply passing through the region is unsafe, as travellers must be ever alert for ambushes. Four friends have joined together to aid their queen. Though destined to encounter ancient gods, primordial wonders, and marvellous inventions, foes and betrayal haunt their every step. A keen eye could prove vital, exposing essential clues. And as the companions make their way through darkness and light, they’ll discover that those two extremes have more in common than they once imagined… With real-time, bone-crunching combat with incredible spells and combos, the ability to control any one of the four champions at any time, and skip between them at will, and the power to customize each character's armor, weapons, and spells and evolve new powerful attacks, this colorful action-RPG title is a real blast to play!

When Europeans experiment with the anime aesthetics interesting things happen, and Sudeki is a perfect example of that rule. Check it out, for only $5.99 on GOG.com.

Niggles: Just because a game is old you classify it automatically as a classic?
Obviously not, there's plenty of bad old games that definitely aren't classics, though I think a certain amount of time has to pass, so that we can stand back years after the game was on shelves and consider it impartially, you know if people are still talking about a game after 15 or 20 years there must be something good or at least interesting about it. The passage of time is useful because it allows momentary opinions and fanboyism to die down, I mean do you really think Bioshock Infinite or The Last of Us are the "Citizen Kane of Gaming" and worthy of those accolades the sites/magazines give them? Will they be saying the same thing about them in 20 years?

The issue is probably most likely because video games haven't been around for that long (relatively), while films or books have been around for longer. Consider that Tolkien published the Hobbit in 1937 and even today Tolkien's work are way off being considered as "literature", their still essentially thought of as genre works.
I actually wanted to buy this game for Xbox but never did because it was always so expensive.. I might have to try it finally.
Very nice release, will most definitely pick it up next time I have money.

hunvagy: Isn't there a PC version of Rival Schools? Or was I playing that one MAME... was probably MAME. The PS1 and the PS2 by now have competent emulators. I myself play my PS2 games with PCSX 2, nicely upscaled to 1080p.
Rival schools for ps1 is still one of my fave fighters. Not aware of any pc version. The sequel called project justice for dreamcast was fun too.

But how much time.
People ive discussed with cant agree on a time limit when a game shoud be considered classic.
Some say 25 years, some say 15, some say 10 or 5 and some even say that new games can become classics if they are good enough.

Who can say? The definition of "classic" is still entirely subjective, because video games are such a young medium and they don't yet have anything close to real critics in the same way films or books do (modern day "video game journalists" are a joke). But hey, we'll probably know at most by the year 3000! :)

I would say at least 10 years for a classic. Most games that people call classics and are newer then early 2000 are called classics only because the games are really good and probably aren't available anywhere else but that doesn't make a game a classic. I would say classics are games from the view off community wishlistgames that have in thousands of votes. And you can see in the bestseller list which games sell good that tells you if a game is percieved as a classic by buyers. For example if Red alert as a real clasic game would come to gog it would probably make the biggest income for gog till now. This is only looking from economic perspective off course.

Elmofongo: Even though I miss the original xbox days I enjoyed Splinter Cell Chaos Theory, Jade Empire, Halo 2 multi, Fable, Battlefront 2, Repiblic Commando, Rainbow Six 3, KOTOR. And Conker Live and Reloaded. It was nice powerhouse of a console.

Strijkbout: They mutilated Shenmue 2 though.
But Shenmue lived on in the form of the Yakuza games and I am saving to get Yakuza 4 on PS3.
Hmm..i heard much about the good Combatsystem and the nice rule-system...but i unsure because of the style and the weak story...hmm

Both games are made in a time where the gaming comminity were trying the hardest to make female characters that are not Fanservice and real normal women. Even though Elizabeth is has been rule 34ed up the Ass afterwards :P

And I played the Last of Us and I thought it was OK, but think its blown out of Proportion heck the game sometimes Reminded me of Silent Hill Downpour, Its probably this new generation of gamers who were incredibly impressed, heck when I was a kid I thought Resident Evil 2 was the best game ever and it blew my mind, now I think Resident Evil Remkae is the best game.

micktiegs_8: Holy crap I still remember this from the original xbox... wow that was a long time ago!
And here a few days someone was arguing as to whether it was a classic or not... I've got the original hard copy over on my game shelf right now ;)

That's old enough to be a classic!

lugum: Doesn't anyone else keeps having sudoku in mind with this?

Seems like a decent game i once again never heard of.
Will probably get it if this job goes through, and have some money for a change.
I wonder if there are any DRM-free PC Sudoku games that would be interesting enough to come here?

By interesting, as Sudoku is pretty linear and straight forward, I have no idea what titles specifically could come, but I guess I thought of games like Battle Chess that spiced up the original. Why not do it with Sudoku? Someone could find a way I bet. I'd give it a shot!

Johnmourby: Funny story. A few weeks ago a guy in collage called me a geezer. Being a mere 23 I replied by calling him a tosspot. A few more insults and threats of violence (not from me) later it came out that geezer in his circle just meat 'guy' bloke' or 'dude' and not "weird old man", the only meaning to which I had seen the word used before. By your logic the word geezer doesn't work and should be banned.
I give your comment a strawberry out of Banana =)
Number is a finite, precise value. It should never be possible to interpret a numeric value differently in different parts of the world. ... Of course, when it comes to review ratings, 8 in one review means something entirely different than 8 in another. Now mix into that the fact that you can't put subjective feelings into a number, as your subjective feelings will mean something different entirely to a different person. So basically, the number itself means something else in different parts of the world and it means something else to every single person giving it out.

Yup, numeric ratings are so fucking useful :-P
This looks real good, tho I haven't played it before. Wishlisted for now. Also, glad to see GOG is finally putting bigger titties on their releases :D

There's so much cheesecake on the box cover, GOG didn't bother hiding more in the screenshots.
