If you don't compare it to the first Alundra it is a good game to play, at least on this one the puzzles reset themselves without leaving the room

Fuck you, you silly faggot. These have been going on for years.

I'd really like to get into old-school blobbers. I read about cRPG history all the time, but getting into the games proper is a bitch for me. Isometric RPGs with easy mouse interfaces were common when I started gaming, so it's very daunting to go back to barely textured dungeons.
I've started Might & Magic I, figuring I'd prefer its more adventurous approach to hardcore shit like Wizardry. Is it even worth it making my own maps, though? I can't imagine constructing 50+ sheets of graph paper by bumping into walls. Any advice to ease me into it is appreciated.

I'm going to try my luck and ask on here again.

Does anyone have an original, first-boot ROM of the Apple II version of Might and Magic I? Every version I've found is either a bad dump or edited in some way (usually the starting team has been removed, edited, or replaced).

I'm glad the DOS version exists and is close enough to the original, but its still not *quite* the same as having the Apple II version, imo.
I don't know if they're right, I don't know much about the games in question, but a bunch of really old games used to be a bit too much for a computer to run alongside the actual OS, so you'd have to boot directly into the game off a floppy.
Yeah, googling tells me Wizardry was one of them.


Seriously, this used to be a thing.
I agree, you can't get by just spamming whatever your current best attack spell is. I like that you don't automatically choose another target if the guy you're attacking dies, too, so I'm probably a weirdo.
This should be brought back, imo. Imagine, a game like that would run regardless if you use Windows or Linux.

So uh, I hear constantly about how Brigandine: Grand Edition's fan translation has screwed the pooch so to speak. Not only with terms and the like, but with gameplay changes. This is even present on /rhg/.

Does anyone have any good examples of this? I'm completely new to this game, and I haven't seen anything like William Shattner jokes yet.
I know that the Missing Link has been brought up, and it's fairly obvious that it's missing link.

I find it hard to believe that this game caught on has much has it did considering the amount of bullshit that it contains. I love the humor, the art direction, the soundtrack, but aside from a few levels its pretty bad, right?

I liked the whole thing, even Down The Tubes. It's the second game where it didn't work as well for me.

Andy Asteroids is filler though.

Down the Tube isnt that bad once you find that hidden canister in part 2. But I feel that this game has the Sonic 1 syndrome where every level after first one gets less fun just for the sake of being harder.
That's funny because to me the first level feels like a bit of a waste. It's funny, and was good for getting the player ready for how things work but it's the least 'fun' level in the game.

On Sonic I agree completely though.

Best retro baseball game and why is it this?
10 replies and 6 images omitted. Click here to view.
Because most retro baseball games were made by Japanese developers who focused on the fun factor rather than realism.

Western devs generally lack creative talent, and that is why they make realistic simulations.

In the arcade version of RBI baseball, Mark McGwire stats show him with 62 homeruns, one more than the record of 61 by Roger Maris The game was released in 1986, 12 years before he actually broke the single season record for homeruns.

Little Samson is great.

There is this other game called The Krion Conquest (US) Doropie (JAP). It is a re-skinned Mega Man game where you are a witch, and you have an inventory of different powers from the start instead of acquiring them from stage bosses. You have to utilize the powers to complete the map, use a broom to fly over spikes, etc. It's okay. I think is the only enhancement is you can fire up, but everything else is Mega Man just re-skinned.
Little Samson feels too long and dragged out, and lacks the immense replay value and comfy atmosphere of Cocoron.

Is Hitler in P.T.O 2? Asking for a friend.
He makes an appearance depending on if certain conditions are met. Also, if you're Japan and if you knock the British out fast enough, Germany will send the Bismark and Prine Eugen to the Pacific.
Would Hitler play Koei games?
Play Europa Sensen if you want the European theater.

And yet here you are.
Start off with a garbage pile,
evolve it into black aggro,
finish with a combo deck,
that crashes the whole program every other game.
Good times.

It absolutely is and anyone can do it with the starting weapon, crafting, and killing every enemy you encounter without excessive chaining.

I really enjoy playing Retro JRPGs and Dungeon Crawl games, and I figure that a lot of you guys do too. So, why not have a weekly JRPG discussion thread.

Feel free to discuss anything related to Retro JRPGs.

>Something was wrong with my actual copy my brother and I had for the SNES back in the day
Was it a bootleg, perhaps? Chrono Trigger has anti-piracy checks that can make it impossible to get the Epoch.
>I preffer a shit version just because it's older
grab III for the SNES for the delicious 16-bit graphics or the GBA version for something closer to the NES version but better and with more content. it plays like a primitive version of VI - IX's vocations but don't get me wrong, the game had a lot more to offer with that and it's still stands the test of time. the story was non-intrusive and actually quite good when it does play out. it's a game that you'd do more exploring and finding new cities to do quests in rather than going a long a specific plotline so, if that's your thing, i'd highly recommend it
Good choice

Pokemon or Digimon /vr/?

The "Yeah, thought as much" comment, Anon, do you not pay attention to what you type?
By the way, covering your ears and going "LALALA I CAN'T HEAR YOU" over how a fucking comment is presented is proof enough you're just here to suck yourself off. What, can't handle that you were playing a game wrong so you decide to nitpick responses?
I think there is like 4 issues but I liked the more "adult" jokes and art.
I like the pokemon games and the digimon anime.

The artist is actually famous for doing hentai, I believe.
The Viz Comics version was censored to hell and back.

Inspired by another thread we had about this subject. I love games that have a grimy or grungy art direction/aesthetic. Some examples include Wolverine Adamantium Rage, Spider-Man Web Of Fire, Chakan, Spawn PS1, Judge Dredd. Anyone else out there into this?

Yes, but the Sega Genesis version has the MA-13 rating. Probably has something that the SNES version doesn't, but I'm not sure what that is.
I'm pretty sure both movie and games are based on a 90's comic series.
