Don't mind me, I'm just the most useless unit in the entire game.
they're meant for tanking anon
What is tanking?
please stop posting
a unit that is used to absorb damage that would otherwise wreak havoc on your weaker units
Well since their units never reach the front lines and therefore their fellow teammates never take damage, I suppose they are the ultimate tanks.

Gradius and Gradius 2 are definitive ports with new content
Snatcher was a remake and added Act 3
Tokimeki Memorial and Rondo were new games

If you look at the X68000 Konami's support was similar
yeah it means you're retarded

>Redump.org just included 22+ European PC CDs within the last 24 hours
yea, they're always dumping stuff. i probably should have written "most software people actually give a fuck about" :)

tosec is far from a complete or a perfect archive. they've thrown in all kinds of trash without much thought. good to see epforums still around. some interesting users there. a dump might be there but from what i can remember, redump.org do everything themselves or from trusted dumpers.

>I'd help you get as much shit as possible, but there's no one handling this shit.
there is. you just don't have the right connections. ;)

>, some mouthbreather will always step in to "make it easier" with their super all-in-one just unzip and play edition that will always kill off every other distribution.

that depends on the site. some sites will let any old shit be uploaded. others will not spread such packs as they mean nothing. no scene value, not an original dump..etc. repacks are generally frowned upon by everyone.
ROM Shepherd has a "scene release" section that handles all the cracks and Steam releases, so if anyone wants to set up a section over there for DLSite shit or whatever, feel free to see as you better start now, then. There was some loli game released on there for GB called Strip Rock Paper Scissors for some reason, so I tracked down all version & sent it to GoodSet.


Go kys. You probably circlejerk with people who redump console Barbie games just cause they're licensed. If I had money, I'd send them all over to them, and at least I know they'd do it compared to whiny babbies like you.

I'll admit, it wasn't as gr8 a meme to post as this.

>it was worse than donkeykong 64.

DK isn't a bad game though, it's padded and tedious but not bad
Back in the day, me and my friends thought it was absolutely amazing, an instant classic. It's just a bit too hard to figure where to go sometimes. Still have it in perfect condition, my N64 collection is pretty dope.
>Bomberman 64
>Ogre Battle 64
These are some of the most critically, commercially and player praised games on the N64. You are as close to objectively wrong as possible, in addition to being the bearer of shit taste.

Could the SNES have handled Metal Gear 1 + 2
26 replies and 3 images omitted. Click here to view.

Track reminds me of something else. Maybe Snatcher or Policenauts. Maybe it was re-used in Metal Gear games.

I'm picturing a lobby or Reception area for some reason.
Melodically is not even close to being as rich. Listen to the part at 0:25 onwards Jungle Infiltration, plus the dynamic and upbeat rhythm.
It's a great theme. I'm sorry if I called them "generic", I actually like that MG2 track now that I listen to it, but while I played the game, none of the tracks really stuck with me.
Easily. The graphics would be better, MG2 would be slowdown-free but the music would be inferior.
>NES Metal Gear is a heavily scaled down port,

no it's not
Konami considered ports of their MSX catalogue to the SNES, with new English translations, starting with SD Snatcher.
An earthquake at Konami Kobe put an end to those plans.

This is a great game. Might be my favorite game of all time.

I just played it and beat it the other day.

Some of the secrets in it are so hard. They took me forever to find them. For instance, one DK coin is hidden WITHIN a bonus area. Fuck, that one was difficult to find. I doubt any kids could find all the secrets in this game.

What are some other games with really difficult secrets?
2 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Bomberman 64. Rainbow Palace isn't too difficult to get to. You'll most likely get all gold cards after playing each level two or three times. But once you're actually there, the bomb jumps are crazy. Bomb jumps, which, mind you, are not taught anywhere in the game. Its truly above and beyond in terms of bonus stages. That and there's other hidden areas elsewhere in the game that contain costume pieces which require some bomb jumps.

I was blown away when I found out in order to get to a location I had to knock myself out with a bomb, so I'd bounce into another set of bombs. Easy to visualize, very difficult to master.

Yeah, but kids are dumb, so they would probably keep missing the secret over and over.
>I doubt any kids could find all the secrets in this game.

That's why they made strategy guides. I had one for all the DKC games.
I found them all when I was a kid. I couldn't find the secret area inside a secret area in DKC1 though. It's been a while but I don't remember any of them being totally stupid, there's always some kind of subtle hint. It's not like Metroid 1 or something.
I doubt very man kids would care. I'm 30 and I don't care about hunting down every last secret. In time it would take you to find a few tokens you could have played an entirly different game.

Hunting down every last toekn is for people with very few games or autistics.

I only used it so I could say to an NPC "TELL ME ABOUT: BANE".
Why does /vr/ pretend this system is more immersive than just dialogue options?
Because that didn't happen

It's even better in games where this is the only way to interact with NPCs

Imagine being this fucking stupid.
I disagree. The materia system is really fun, the random encounter rate isn't too bad, and boss battles are usually pretty good. What was your problem? If I had to nitpick something, it would be that everyone can do everything so the characters lack individuality. That's a problem in most FF titles, though.
only 9 is good
the others are weebshit sci-fi
We would've had PS2 updated re-releases of VII, VIII, and IX, as well as a WonderSwan Color remake of III if Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within didn't bomb horribly.

I actually really love that movie.
