Just beat System Shock 1 for the first time ever, using the Enhanced Edition mouselook first time I tried it in DOSBOX I gave up because of the controls. It's one of the most well-paced shooters I've ever played, with amazing level design, an entire ecosystem of weapons and tools to play with, and a story that's basic yet remains pertinent throughout (though cyberspace sort of sucked).

Moving on to the sequel now; unlike SS1, which was an RPG more in the vein of a tabletop game with the stats removed (ie an immersive sim), SS2 has more traditional RPG stats and builds. I'm worried I'm going to fuck up my game by building the wrong way: are there any tips I should know before going in?

Also, should I play my first playthough with the SCP mod installed? I like the look of SHTUP, but as for the rest I only saw something about SCP as a necessary set of bugfixes.

>This short interview with Demon’s Crest creators Tokuro Fujiwara and Masahiko Kurokawa first appeared in the November 1994 edition of Famicon Tsuushin. It mainly covers the creation of the Red Arremer character and the challenges of trying to hybridize action and adventure gameplay. Fujiwara’s remarks about new possibilities for the action genre foreshadow his subsequent move to Whoopee Camp and the development of Tomba series.

I kinda wonder how it would be like if they were to do a modern remake of Demon's Crest? It was a really nice game after all, and it would be awesome to play as a demon in a game with modern graphics and all that. But odds are that they'd just manage to screw it up somehow...
it would probably be exactly like DMC/Bayonetta/Nioh/etc. etc. etc. action rpgs

Firebrand would have a melee punch combo and different breath specials and a dodge button and all the dumb shit
Try Firebrand in MvC:i for a clue.

I love the hover-jump mechanic in Demon's Crest. More games need fun jump mechanics.

I like FF5's Neo Exdeath. With the multiple parts all doing their own thing it feels like you're fighting a legion.

Which are the hardest?
Makes sense. I rarely play JRPGs anymore myself and I don't just play games for challenge. I still like roleplaying elements although not as much as when I was a kid/teen.

wow nice challenge, nerd.

That's like flipping through a book at the fastest speed you can without even skimming shit and claiming you've read it. The second fastest way to FAIL it, right after just closing it out.

Also, Tyrian.
>Literally that guy:
No you faggot a lot of those low tier games can be 1ccd on your first blind attempt if you concentrate and I assume that someone who likes the genre wants to play it instead of just watching visuals while brainlessly pressing buttons. There are plenty of easy shmups that are still engaging and well designed instead of Tyrian which is just junk on every front from basic movement being slippery shit, to shooting feeling terrible to no iframes and bizarre knockback on collission.

So it's the shmup version of Avenging Spirit?

What is the appeal of this shovelware ridden piece of shit? Why did eurofriends latch onto it?

A few games like Civilization and X-COM have AGA versions, but you may as well just play them on the PC.
The AGA Amigas for some brain-damaged reason still used planar graphics which meant no Doom.
Why wouldn't it?
Commodore did a lot of bad decisions at the end. I wonder how it would have played out if Atari bought Amiga Inc when they were up for sale instead of Commodore.
Planar graphics made sense in the 80s due to limited memory, but it was completely stupid to still be doing by the time the AGA Amiga were out.

There's no such thing. Even my favorite game isn't close to be perfect, it has a lot of flaws. The more i like a game, the more i start noticing things i don't like.

The only problem is it's not retro.
I used to be such a little shit that I'd insist on trying to use the bongo controller when my neighbor wanted to play melee, so that it would be no fun for him and we could play something else.

The gay RPG

Yep all of the PoPo games have been disappointing, yet I've bought every single one except the ps2 game. The worst of them was the latest, the story of seasons crossover shit.
Are the anime any good?
You do know the PSP port was mutilated beyond recognition, don't you.
It tries to cram an entire series worth of plot in one game, like those shitty 12-episode animes so numerous lately.

Series is baby's JRPG, SNES underdeveloped port edition.
First was actually challenging.
It has a lot of charm, but too many duds (Poporogue, PS2, PSP)
They tried repeatedly localizing it (1, 2, 4) without success, even so far to have official English titles.

Basically there's a manga, and then an unreleased idea for an adaptation with a slightly different grander story (Pietro's mother, Narcia) in a more fleshed out universe.
They did an animated pilot for an anime, but it went nowhere.
Sony bought the rights, had a developer adapt the full story as videogames (1 and 2).
The 1998 anime is a filler story about side events happening in the older continuity, but still really good.
Same team (I.G.) who did the anime FMVs in-game.

I didn't, no. Not sure if I'm happy that the Japanese didn't get a terrible version or irate that I'll never get to play it. Apathetic at this point I suppose.

So this arrived today.
It was in great condition in the ad.
Paid over 500$ for it shipped.

Really, cause i saw one go for 1000$ and the only one that is still left on ebay the guy wants 2000$ .
So people have been paying 1000$ for clean examples of these so if you had any brains or knowledge then you would realize 500$ is a good price.

>Paying 500$ for this

The fact that there are neckbeards willing to pay (even more) money for it doesn't make 500$ good price for this piece of shit.
>i saw one go for 1000$
post worthpoint screencap
Yeah this happens every item I buy from the US since every American seller seems to be signed up to the GSP. They take it out of the original packaging and throw it loose in smaller packaging that isn't fit for purpose. On the plus side I did get a $300 game for free due to this because the case inevitably got damaged.

Hi 4ch. Any ways to remove damn frames on it? Help please.
4 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
No, just look at how squashed the actual game is. It's shoving a widescreen 720p signal into a 480i 4:3 display via a $4 chinese converter box. Everything that could be wrong with the image is wrong.
Whatever you're using to downscale the HDMI might have a zoom/stretch switch but I agree with Anon this is ridiculous. What you're doing is a job for a Wii or real hardware with a multicart or flash cart.

Look at dis shit. Now it looks ok. Just choose 4:3 res.
With a big tv it would be just dope af.
And just turn off fucking frames
It's still not even close to a correct aspect ratio and it's no doubt 480i not 240p so you're only getting half the frame rate. You should really lurk /crt/ moar.
That is still squashed as hell my dude

How the fuck where people supposed to be able to figure this shit out back then without the use of a strategy guide? Because that kind of information sure as hell didn't exist back in 1997 internet

This is the only guide book I actually returned to the store because I thought this was so retarded.
So just play through the game again and don't miss it next time. It's not like an extra 20 hours is a long time to put into a game.
you photoshopped that, cunt
I had internet and I lived in the midwest, but my dad was really into computer stuff so we had all sorts of nice things other kids didn't.
