Re: Games Completed 2019

19-02 Project X Zone (3DS) Phew! Finally done with this one! Here is what I made of it, neatly summed up for my game collection catalog: https://i.ibb.co/KW5sjsY/projectxzone.png Incidentally, playing in short bursts to keep the game from getting tedious is also why it took me so long to get through...

Re: Shmups

Dull is an understatement. It's easily the worst title in the series, and after the surprisingly decent Raiden IV, that's really disappointing. Moss is one of those "new wave" SHMUP devs that thinks filling the screen with shit is good game design. All it means is that I can't see what's shooting a...

Re: Games Completed 2019

Alex, I think you’re talking about the NES side scroller Street Fighter 2010. That was released before the movie and Street Fighter II, even.

Joshi, I’d get it in that case. You won’t break the bank over it.

Re: Games Completed 2019

18-02 Street Fighter: Real Battle on Film (SAT) A week or so ago I became thoroughly absorbed by the spectacular story behind the development of Street Fighter: The Movie: The Game . After messing around with the original arcade version in MAME and having a good old laugh with it, I decided to splur...

Not sure if the Switch levels are any good but it seemed like just as it was starting to get going it finished:(
Sounds like you've only seen the first credit roll.

Re: Metro Exodus

Kinda surprised no one else is playing this (or at least discussing it), but I'm now quite deep into the campaign and... PHEW LADS. Maybe it's the Epic launcher exclusivity? I've yet to play through the previous 2 Metro games, so it'll be a while until I sink my teeth in this one, but it's cool to ...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Yeah KSub, that's just FE (and the lack of anything F-Zero of course!), where I of course agree with you. Isopod's Exhibit A is my Exhibit A of a counterpoint to Nintendo's soft edges. The way that game drops you in the deep harkens back straight to the NES days. We'll discuss all of that on the upc...

Re: Games Completed 2019

10-02 Pocket Fighter (SAT) I don't think I ever did a full run through of this game's arcade mode. I played Morrigan and I figured out some dirty tricks for when her special moves are maxed out with gems. The AI didn't stand much of a chance after that, anymore. I think I'm finally starting to 'get'...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Been playing the games Suits sent me. I'm damn near addicted to Dragon's Fury. I actually think it improves over Devil's Crush for PC Engine / TG-16. And I also played a single 'credit' of Streets of Rage II, with Blaze. It's been ages since the last time I played that game and I think I enjoyed it ...

Re: Retro gaming

I think, yours is one of the ones that would take the odd joy stick accessory, just with the cap on the hole that accepts it. Oh yeah, I remember seeing that in magazines, that you could screw a small balltop in the center of the SMS controller's Dpad. Lemme see... ... It is indeed a cap that you c...

Re: Retro gaming

The Sega controllers have by far the highest failure rate for me, I’ve thrown a lot away sadly. Same here. I repaired one successfully and had to discard 2 that were beyond fixing. Once the circuit board is failing, there isn't a whole lot I can do anymore. I tested all the games out, by the way an...

Re: Retro gaming

I think if it's advertised as a repro (and I think you have to clarify on eBay whether something is original or repro), then I don't really have too much of a problem with it. I do have my SNES Earthbound repro, so if someone is upfront, and does some nice work, then hey, why not. Yeah, the dude wa...

Re: Retro gaming

Same here. I only once bought a high quality repro, which was advertised as such. It couldn't have been real, as it was a Famicom game that was never released on a NES cart: Summer Carnival '92 Recca. Came with a redesigned NES box and translated manual, very cool.

Re: Retro gaming

Ha, thanks!

It's a nice experience to be finally holding one of these in 2019. I always just used the MD controller on my Mark II Master System.

EDIT: getting addicted to Dragon's Fury all over again after Devil's Crush, which might be my most played Wii VC game.

Re: Gaming Goals for 2019

I've mentioned this to a few people that I speak to on here already, but since I'm not on a lot of time consuming games for this year's CaR volume, I'm planning to go on a bit of a chronological platform adventure (OR METROIDVANIA IF YOU MUST) tear this year, from classics like games of the Monster...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Always happy to read your updates, Joshi! In the gaming goals thread I announced that I was going to tear through all "Metroidvanias" in my collection that I haven't played through yet (which is a fair number), but since I like to keep a sense of chronology and I can't play Wonder Boy in Monster Lan...
