Psychic Force (サイキックフォース, Saikikku Fōsu?) is a 1995 fighting arcade game created by Taito which was later ported to the PlayStation in 1996. The PlayStation version was released by Acclaim in North America, and in PAL regions. The game was a 3D fighter which combined the normal features of an arcade fighting game with psychic powers. There were eight playable characters available to choose from in the game and a final boss who is playable through the use of a code, all deemed as 'psychic masters'. The game was released without much hype and failed to sell many copies. In 1999, a sequel was released under the title Psychic Force 2012 also for the arcade, and was ported for the Dreamcast console. It was adapted to the PlayStation under the title Psychic Force 2.
There was also a Puzzle Bobble style puzzle game released that was known as Psychic Force Puzzle Taisen. However, this game was never released outside of Japan. In 2006 from within Japan, all three games were released together as an anniversary pack for the PlayStation 2.
Famous quotes containing the words psychic and/or force:
“It seems to me that all of the evil in life comes from idleness, boredom, and psychic emptiness, but all of that is inevitable when you become accustomed to living at others expense.”
—Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (18601904)
“Americans have internalized the value that mothers of young children should be mothers first and foremost, and not paid workers. The result is that a substantial amount of confusion, ambivalence, guilt, and anxiety is experienced by working mothers. Our cultural expectations of mother and realities of female participation in the labor force are directly contradictory.”
