Where:

  • You own a PlayStation 2
  • You own official PlayStation 2 discs

    • PlayStation 1 discs will also be researched.

The use cases are much the same as with DVD ripping:

  • Back discs up before disc rot sets in.
  • Rip discs and keep them safe

    • e.g. parents with little kids who damage discs.
  • Playing on a PlayStation 2 which has a broken DVD drive.

I never really got around to pursuing this as a proper project.

This got posted here instead of mobygames because they own comments after they are posted. No thanks, I write for me or for free.

Okami is a PS/2 game.  It's an action/adventure type game, with an expansive world to explore, a huge set of skills, a lot of things to do .. and is just generally fun.

A tactics game so good it's worth buying a PlayStation 2 for.

Well, it's got a sellout anime feeling to it. The graphics and sound are more cartoonish. A number of the annoyances of the first game have been hammered out, but there is a "toy" quality to the game which replaces the original gritty feeling of the original game.

A particularly good scroll-and-slay type game. Pseudo-rpg, with character improvements via weapons and equipment.

Decent game. Has a fair amount of complexity but it's manageable. The camera controls somehow don't work for me. A bit repetitive until you get into things properly.. and then it's fun.. repetitive but fun. Crap-assed ending.

A Pretty boring elements-based game. Basically.. from memory, you must select the right combination of moves.

The scenery is boring. It's a bunch of interconnecting rooms. You walk around and get lost, and have randumb encounters.
