It's some 1998-2000s (not sure, I found it on a bargain bin for 10€ during that period) pc game about space racing.
On the cover you could see that yellow ship, which is one of the latest unlockable vehicles.
The final vehicle is that blue disk and it steers like utter shit.
The starting one instead is that crappy red/blue tank thing.

I've been trying to figure out this game for fucking years.

Can we agree on these?

I played the original Silent Hill recently and was actually surprised to find out how closely it adheres to the Zelda formula. You run around the foggy town ‘overworld’ to find items that allow you to enter the large interior ‘dungeons’. You then fight enemies, solve puzzles and defeat a boss which nets you a key item.
>>
>>4919574
Yes, both games are action-adventure games.
>>
>>4919579
So is Resident Evil really. “Survival Horror” was just a marketing term that Capcom came up with and it stuck.
>>
>>4919584
Yes, you can say that.

Many have argued that survival horror is not a real video game genre, because video game genres are defined by gameplay mechanics, and survival horror introduced the notion of theme (horror).

However, action-adventure is a very board term. Like stated, that could include Zelda in the same genre, which is true, but it's good to have sub-sub genre to define game genres more precisely, which is why even if it's an exception to the rule, survival horror is good to have as a genre.

Backtracking the game. Lost count how many times progressing the story was going back and forth between the same npcs. Grinding is ridiculous even more do to get half decent digimon. Music is good though.

What are some games that absolutely NEEDED one of these beasts either when, or shortly after it came out? I didn't realize how much of a premium item these were until recently, or how much they'd run for.

Remember that Doom would run on a 286.

>Quake ran like shit on a 486.
You could get away with a 486 100mhz with writeback cashe (486DX4), and get surprisingly somewhat reasonable framerates around 10-15fps at 320x200. The fact that you can get even get that framerate from Quake out of a 486 class chip amazed me at how utterly optimized that game was.
>>
>>4919504
It would probably be closer to 10 FPS than 15 FPS consider a Pentium 100 ran the game around 25 FPS and the 486 is literally twice as inefficient per clock if not more than the Pentium at running Quake.
>>
>>4919512
You're probably right on that, it was more then a decade ago so memory on it's exact FPS is a bit fuzzy, but me and a friend were doing it to play DM over IPX since it was the only other PC that he owned. We were more amazed that it worked then anything.
>>
>>4918057
it has nothing to do with optimization, doom ran in 32 bit protected mode and a 286 is a 16 bit processor
>>
>>4919060
I ran UU on my 386DX2/80 with textures at ~10fps

>>4919472
Doom also ran about that speed on it

It was actually a quite remarkable processor

so far the only reason to like it is because of graphics and music (and maybe contrarianism). are IX this shallow?

breath of fire 2 is better written than panzer saga, stupid hipster

Just started and I'm getting my shit kicked in... Every battle I find myself frog hopping with enemies. I get behind them, attack, they do the same. Also having trouble trying to figure out if I'm going to throw items into rocks. The music in this game is amazing btw.

>combat is a very poor SRPG without any depth.
You're not doing it right. You can optimize your party order to maximize your actions and outflank the opponents. Throw in some tactical spells at the right point to turn combat in your favor.
Ultima 3 had little depth beyond luring enemies to walk straight into your missile volleys but I guess that's still fine for a game from 83.
>>
>>4919542
Maybe but I'm mostly just using sling to fire up as the enemy walks to me or they standing there throwing rocks/spells until they die or flee while I don't really feel a reason to move unless something is blocking my attack.
>>
>>4913123
If you're having a hard time, at the beginning of a game in character and party creation, you can move inventory between party members before starting the game. So you can make an 80 year old alchemist, move his inventory to one of your guys, then dismiss him, then add him back, repeat, dismiss, etc. then you have a TON of valuable potions you can sell when you get into the game to give you a leg up.

That said, you don't *need* to do that. If you spend your first few weeks just sleeping in gardens and walking between slums, you'll have enough encounters with thugs to get your party's skills leveled up a bit and to kit yourself out with moderately OK equipment (you'll also get a good reputation in your starting town which will help open up more quests).

>spend lots of time off and on trying to get into BG2

maybe it's because I did goldbox and IWD prior to touching BG, but I can't stand the pre-made companions
the only game I've done where they were okay was Arcanum and you could basically ignore them in that game
