Shadow Of Destiny Coming To PSP
Some games just never got the proper attention from gamers, and if we ever get a second chance to experience it a second time, we consider it a blessing.
If you were an early PS2 owner, you may remember Shadow of Destiny by Konami; it was an adventure title that featured an excellent concept: essentially, you had to stop your own death. The game would show you how you would die and then would turn back time in an effort to let you try to prevent it; you had a set amount of time until death, of course. For example, at the start of the game, you get stabbed in the park. In order to avoid this, you had to assemble a bunch of people so the killer wouldn't be able to strike; you accomplished this by getting a street performer to haul in some onlookers. Then you stuck to that group and with so many witnesses, the killer was forced to retreat. There was a very cool mystery entangled within as well, and if you didn't get a chance to play it then, you will soon get another shot on your PSP: according to RPGFan, Konami plans to bring Shadow of Destiny (Shadow of Memories in Japan) to Sony's portable unit, and the release date is October 1. We're not sure yet if they will include any new pieces of gameplay content or other upgrades, but if they do, we'll be sure to tell you about it.
Really, this is one of those unique titles that should at least be tried by most every hardcore gamer. It was a fresh experience then and it would still be so today.
