You aren't supposed to go into the Great Marsh, it is an optional area (that is sometimes not optional at all because the level generation in Act 3 is crazy and unpredictable).

Couldn't have put it better, Square is just giving everyone what they think they want instead of making stuff that would be good game idea like in the past (isn't Final Fantasy gameplay just a KH rip off now?) and then produce it well, at least that's the way for most of their international releases, handhelds have suffered less the transition I think but smartphones are taking care of that now, after all, it's their way of getting some quick profit back from their massive budget games.
>Modern technology pretty much requires large teams for that AAA development frivolity.
Fixed. A team of 20 guys can absolutely make a proper game still. It just won't be as pwetty with the big gwafix and bloom wowie wow!

The problem is devs and consumers being faggots who want pretty shit instead of games.
>isn't Final Fantasy gameplay just a KH rip off now?
FFXV plays way worse than KH2.

Your "improvement" boil down to tweaking numbers around and adding bullshit faction. Now you are making bullshit tweaks in skills. Soooo much improved!
Want to know the difference between your mod and WoG? WoG is OPTIONAL. If I don't like some feature from it, I can simply turn it off. Which I do.
In case of HotA I'm forced to take entire pack in, all the shit I hate included, because fuck me, right?
This could be doable with upgraded Pixies. 6 stacks of 1 fairy each + 1 main stack with the rest. Turn one wait on each stack, after the lizardmen shoot (should probably all target the main stack) move to the middle of the map as much as the range allows. Turn two move next to the lizardmen without attacking (except for main stack, main stack attacks normally), blocking their ranged attack.

But upgraded pixies aren't as sexy as vanilla pixies.

I'm playing this right now and it's a lot of fun. I love the idea of controlling cute police girls and solving crimes and beating up perverts, drunks, old ladies all around tokyo.

Anyone else played this? Is there anything else with a similar aesthetic/theme?

Does the player even have a presence as a character in the first game?
Yeah, you can choose to do things like taking the girls out to dinner or one-on-one training sessions.
english version anywhere?
This, it looks actually pretty good.
I guess there's not all too much text. I'll try and have a look at the pc98 version's game files when I get home.

I imagine a good portion of the text is burnt into images though, which makes things a bit tougher.

Playing first Harvest Moon and as simplistic as it is, its comfy as hell.
Made me wish for more comfy games where instead of killing same kind of mob for hundredth time I would just spent time walking through town, chatting with people who've got their own lives, romance chicks pet my dog and stuff.
What other game that let me do this, bonus point if its something I can play without learning moonrunes.

It can be a fishing sim or games like Shenmue or Yakuza as long as it is comfy and let me live in imaginary world.

Doubutsu no mori (N64)
Actually all of them but that's the only one that's retro
>vomit like stardew

Lol. Stardew Valley is basically just Harvest Moon but better. You'd have to be a full blown contrarian if you like Harvest Moon but despise Stardew Valley.
Somehow Stardew valley artstyle feels tumblresque to me.
Cant pinpoint it but SNES artstyle is comfy, Stardew feels soulless because I feel like I already seen this style hundreths of times.

It gets props for Gekisha Boy and Gomola Speed, two interesting and unique games for the system. Gomola is kind of wonky with its controls, and like all UPL games it just "ends" (you know what I mean if you play UPL games), but the ramp up of challenge and variety is quite nice. And boss fights in a snake clone/remake!
What a thought.

go go Gomola! Don't let anyone bring you down!
I love the turbografx. The PCE-CD has a lot of fun looking JRPGs that I'd love to play translated.
One thing I really love about the PCE CD is that there are a lot of games that feel like some 80's/90's anime OVA complete with delicious red book audio

Why does it matter if "no one heard about them"? The reason for that to begin with is that you fuckers deliberately look over them while praying daily for AAA not to fuck you over despite knowing they'll do it anyway and not pay child support to boot. The literal epitome of "I want this but not like that".
Because indieshit cannot be used as representative of the industry in general. I listed a lot of modern well known JRPGs that are not indie. Why can't westacucks do that?

Part of growing up is to cut ties with abusive assholes that aren't really your friends.

Hour was a fast one, usually it was two due to slowest possible setting to not fuck things up.
I still remember how revolutionary it was when suddenly you could burn at 16x without instant failure. Shit man, CD ready in 15 mintes? Sign me in!
Not to mention how huge a difference pendrives were, but that's not retro. 95 mb of space that doesn't have to be burned and literally can't fail? Only 100 bucks? Give me two!

>why not blu ray-rw?
Because pic related. And portable hard drive, too.
Blu ray exists pretty much solely for the purpose of movies at this point, since everything else is either done by fast internet connection or using portable memory. The advent of USB technology pretty much killed discs as a mean of moving data. I remember how I brought a 8GB pendrive in 2008, because at that point, games were slowly getting bigger than single DVD. It was cheaper to spend at once 15 bucks than buy 20 DVDs in the long run, especially since half of them would be left mostly empty when burning things.
By 2012 said pendrive was reduced mostly to a keychain. I still use it, don't get me wrong, but my actual "duty" memory is a 2TB portable drive, along with a 128GB pendrive for "small things".
Never sold burnt few to my friends. They have given me cd-rs so I can burn games for them.
never had one, never needed one, never will
what the fuck, who would charge for using that? As in, the group can't even play without the game? And it's not like it gets used up for installing a game

Why are people spamming this phrase constantly lately? Like I know it's always been in use but recently people are being really obnoxious about it. Are you specifically trying to kill it? Is that the goal?

It's like that with every meme ever. People see it being used and start to use it as well to feel validated and part of the cool kids. /sp/ is complete cancer with this shit.

Majuro Ou / King of Demons thread, because I can’t get enough of this game and more people need to play it.

I played it, it's alright i guess. I love the art.
I'm in akihabara now and this game is getting pushed at retro shops now that it was on game center cx. I'd probably rather download for wii though, not that the game is very expensive (it was way less than whatever fuji TV paid), I just don't really need a copy.
>it was on game center cx
I wondered why everyone was making threads about it all of a sudden when it got translated years ago and nobody said a word...
I don't think that the episode was subbed yet, but I saw it on Japanese TV a short time ago.

Also disregard previous message, I suck cocks. What I saw turned out to be "CIB" repros of Majuu Ou being sold for about 50 USD.
i got an english repro for $20

ask in /v/
Hey, i am just asking cause i saw the thread, figured theres at least a small chance someone will know it. but very unlikely with the very hazy memory i have of it. it kills me because i really liked it but i cant remember what happened to it, i think i borrowed it from a friend back then, he had these shitty games that i couldnt enjoy back then but see the good in them now. there was this other one too. i couldve sworn it was called Guilty Gear. It msutve been called something Gear, or Guilty something. it was an actuin game i remember one of the first levels was like grey or at night time
ohh, the 2nd 1 is 'gungrave' come on that is a retro game dont get mad at me.. look at that game. some of the early ps2 games are retro game if ps1 are retro now.. it looks like an arcade machine from 90s

Fuck, ive been wondering what this game is for years the first one. im thinkin about goin through this entire list of early ps2 sega games until i find it. actually come to think of it, some of the games were on teh sega and ps2, so it would techincially be retro if its on the sega, it must be probably maybe. it was one of thos sega games you know like JSR but you were on your feet and it was the same art style and graphics iirc. in my memory, i remember as the main character being like Mugen from Samurai Champloo, and you fought enemies action style and it was like an boat and alcove near the very beginning of the game. Been wondering for years. my memory is so weak of it that ill probably never find it
FML, just checked a shitload of games in this list, and don't think its on here. i think the thing is it was very sega like but not an actual sega game. i think i remember reading some review of the game im trying to find saying it was a ripoff and had poor controls
I shouldve known you wouldnt be able to help.. only true gamers can find the game i am looking for off the info i have.. one day i will find one.
