Why is this so underrated, yet so good?

And why doesn't Square return to the charming fantasy setting instead of giving us pseudo-realistic settings with a boy-band enoutrage??


Am I the only person that found it fairly forgettable? Like, I remember it being fun, but not amazing like 6 or memorably bizarre like 7. I played through it at release and never particularly wanted to go back to it.



It was fairly popular when it came out.

>And why doesn't Square return to the charming fantasy setting

Because the Square that used to make such games no longer has the people capable of doing them, the new Square cannot return to making things it never did and as such they just piggy ride on the biggest titles while seeking newer user bases in this case the fujos.



"Fun but fairly forgettable" is exactly how I'd describe it. I remember enjoying myself while playing it when it first came out but fuck if I remember anything specific about it. With all the other Final Fantasies there are always parts of them that stuck out to me and I remember clearly, but 9 is an enigma.

That being said, I do recall always feeling really cozy while playing it, which makes it worth coming back to I suppose, but there was nothing about the game that really stuck out. It wasn't a bad game but it wasn't terribly great, either. It just was.


>they just piggy ride on the biggest titles while seeking newer user bases in this case the fujos

I actually think there's some truth to that. Square just realized what cashcows "fandom" games are and, comparatively, there's not much of an audience for fantasy games with an unsexy cast. 9 seemed to be Square's last shot at a fantasy setting in line with games 1-6 before they realized that they had created an entirely new audience with 7 and 8. A new audience that wanted handsome husbandos and beautiful waifus.

Brutal Doom would be much better if it wasn't going overkill with the pixelated graphics.

I genuinely think a remaster of Doom 1 and 2 would look amazing if done in a similar way to for example the Sonic 2 HD project….just revamping the art to a higher res/fidelity, not re-stylizing it.

Some have tried this already, with mixed results. All of them are still great, but the original artists intentions are lost along the way.



What are the other 2? Wolfendoom and ?

Can we have a thread dedicated to this string of underrated platformers? 2 and 4 especially.


How about you start us off.

Has anyone else played this game?

Is it the best Adventure game ever made? It is.

I challenge /vr/ to made another adventure game that is better then Dust.


What's so good about it, OP? This is a slow board, so you can't make a thread waiting the answers just to then say something.

What makes it better than The Secret of Monkey Island, or the old Infocom text adventures?



which of those should i play first


File: b74900fab4f3ddc⋯.jpg (326.46 KB, 800x982, 400:491, front.jpg)


Zork 1, probably. That was like their very first game and it's not too hard. Seastalker is a bit easier though, that's another good option. Don't forget to grab the manual and other goodies. Tons more infos here:





Oh shit, nice, someone else who knows that this game exists.

I played it sorta recently and it's a pretty neat point-and-click. I had to use a walkthrough for that puzzle near the end, though–you know the one. It was a huge difficulty spike in what is otherwise a pretty manageable game.

There is only one answer tbh


It's a $20 nostalgia-bait romhack.




Haven't played it, only seen videos of it.

They should have grabbed the rest of the fan project devs and made the art HD as well, not just the music.

I get that it's meant to be retro on purpose, but I would have made that something extra you enable in the options.


the game itself is great, nothing new but more of the same is ok for me, I am not a snob trying to act cool saying its shit because its a nostalgia attack, yes it is, but also the game is funny and enjoyable who cares?


I'm more interested in what Whitehead and his team will do after Mania, hopefully completely new levels and assets or bringing X-Treme to fruition.

/vr/ help me find the name of this game.

I was a little kid and I saw this game going and going in demo mode in a shop. It was for Amiga I think, at the time I had a commodore so I didn't bought the game but I could stare long time at that demo playing.

So the game was a sort of Rastan clone, and no, was not Rastan because he had a sky with several level of parallax scrolling (that Rastan does not have).

The main character was a sort of barbarian fighting with a club, but he could upgrade it with some potions and other stuff found in chests.

He could for example shoot fireball from the club.

Just to remove the obvious, it was not black tiger and it was not Rastan.

I vaguely remember 2 scenes being played in the demo. One in a montain area with a red sunset sky and another one in a forest with giant trees.

Any help appreciated, is several years the memory of this game haunts me.


Is it Lionheart? One of the best looking Amiga games for sure.


By the way, I was stuck with an A500 when Doom came out. Today's "gamers" are lucky to have their cute little console wars; true suffering would break them.



Unfortunately not, I owned Lionheart and played it a lot. Still remember the bloody giant fly. Can't really remember more about that other game.

To be honest I'm not sure on which system it was playing but I exclude PC since PC games weren't so elaborate at the time.


File: b6c419664edb37d⋯.png (10.45 KB, 320x240, 4:3, 1181242156.png)


That game is Rastan. A Taito game that was ported to a lot of consoles


File: ccc6265fdec4e1b⋯.png (8.2 KB, 320x256, 5:4, Gods_1.png)


Doom is shit tbh. Only games worth playing on PC are various old CRPGs like Wasteland and the SSI Gold Box stuff that didn't get ported to Amiga. Maybe also few strategy games like Warlords II, but that's about it.

Otherwise, an Amiga 500 and a Sega Genesis are the most "advanced" hardware I would ever want. But older stuff like Apple II/GS, Atari, C64, Spectrum, Amstrad, SMS, NES, Gameboy, and such are nice too.

There's already a DOS thread, let's have one on PC gaming in the Win95/98 era.

>tfw you will never be able to perfectly emulate Mechwarrior 3 before 2030



This game would be amazing if remade, just re-render some higher-poly models, up the quality of the huds and fix the controls (they were trying to go for a Nuclear Throne style controls but had to deal with a lot of limitations from back in that era).

Oh and I guess non-interlaced cutscenes.


The Postal series would have stuck around and received a far better future if they hadn't gone down that route. Think of the difference between Blood and the more cheesier DOS fps games.

Captain Claw, Outlaws and MDK are where its at.

MDK didn't even need a 3D-accelerated graphics card!



I've struggled with old games on 64-bit Windows for too long until I decided to dual boot Windows XP 32-bit, and never looked back.

Most, if not all, Windows 95/98 games run just fine on XP, some DOS games too.



its easier to play it on actual win95 hardware

Sega vs Nintendo

Both have great gameplay, but Mario's deepest lore is only a meme. Sonic's deepest lore is very real.


File: f63e78a5ccfa259⋯.jpg (125.61 KB, 408x700, 102:175, the best.JPG)


I love both of them equally but I'm slowly starting to side with Sega. I love Jet Set Radio, NiGHTS, Space Channel 5, Bonanza Bros and Super Monkey Ball to name a few. Sonic's pretty good too.

Also, their attempt at a Mortal Kombat clone was pretty great. Shame that the third game in the series was cancelled since they were worried the game would cause Virtua Fighter to get less attention.



Nintendo lasted longer. SEGA died in 1996 (disbanding of CS) while Ninty died in 2005 (disbanding of R&D1).



Sega because I've had better experience with their games such as Sonic, House Of The Dead, Shenmue, Virtua Fighter, Fighting Vipers, Virtual On, Jet Set Radio, Crazy Taxi, Virtua Cop, Fighters Megamix, Super Monkey Ball, Nights Into Dreams, Streets Of Rage, Vectorman, Alex Kidd, Space Harrier, After Burner, Hang On, Seaman, Samba The Amigo… man I couldn't get enough of Sega, I just absolutely love their games. Whereas with Nintendo, I've only been able to enjoy mostly Mario, Zelda, Donkey Kong, Metroid, Super Smash Bros, Mario Kart and some other titles. But most of the Nintendo titles seem too kiddie, compared to Sega titles.


File: 75111d740f7eee1⋯.png (73.56 KB, 719x1111, 719:1111, 74.png)

Sega. There games were actually challenging which puts into perspective why Nintendo's games are referred to as baby games and their franchises had for more variation in terms of gameplay, thematics, and innovation. The Sega of Japan v. Sega of America conflict was the modern day (at least industry) equivalent of the Imperial Japanese Navy v. Imperial Japanese Army conflict, SoJ sabotaged everything SoA tried to do and were responsible for the 32X and Saturn being flops especially the former which didn't need to exist.

HM64 was awesome, still have my cart here, but I've debated buying it on WiiU eshop since my current setup makes it hard to shift consoles around. Easily worth the ten quid


How's the state of N64 emulation these days? Worth checking out or nah?



I've had very few issues unless I'm trying to install mods or patches to games.

So, I'm trying to build a decent collection of Saturn games and it has come to my attention that both PAL and NTSC Japanese games the other region doesn't have.

From what I've researched the US has:

Iron Storm
Magic Knight Rayearth
Albert Odyssey

Europe has:
Deep Fear
Keio 2 Flying Squadron
Dragoball Z The Legend
King of Fighters 94

Any other games I should know? I'd rather collect games in a language I understand instead of importing straight from Japan. Speaking of which, are Astal, Magic Knight and Albert Odyssey good?

Assuming it isn't one of the games that actually makes use of the extra space a GD-ROM provides, you'd be perfectly fine.

Only NTSC-J game I can think of that I've played on mine is Triggerheart Exelica, but it worked without any problems.


To correct myself, I've also played Ikaruga and Guilty Gear X on it, and they both work fine as well.


Cool - I'll have to look into some imports then, too!



Are you wanting to collect or you want to play?

If you want to play just modchip it, and get an Action Replay. Cause sheesh some of those games are expensive like Street fighter zero 3 + cart

The Initial D game for the Saturn wasn't as bad as it looked especially since there wasn't any eurobeat.
