Game isn't actually that hard at all, and it's actually quite solid for a NES shooter. Not really sure how it got the rep, but there are way harder shmups on NES alone, and it doesn't even hold a candle to the harder arcade shmups.

Anyways to the topic, Battletoads, Lost Levels, and Adventure Island are all really hard. Ghosts N Goblins is also hard but moreso because it's jank. I'm sure there are other harder games, but these are definitely the hardest of well known NES games that live up to their difficulty.

its really really tough
theres almost no merchants left in the game, you can only get most spells by random drops from killing casters, and all the roads and settlements are a mob scene. you basically have to just run from the zombies at low lvls and grind up your skills on random animals/creatures as you simply dont stand a chance against the 6th house as it should be imo. it adds a lot more new corprus beasts variations too. forgot to mention i have an economy rebalancing mod on top all that too, so the few trainers left are prohibitively expensive

i usually play on max difficulty, but with that 6th house mod on top, im still struggling at around 20ish on the difficulty slider
granted my character is kind of a wimp. i just barely got her END up to 50, so the extra health should help. problem is that the new mobs start spawning in to scale with your lvl
cant wait to see how broken the dagoth bros are. from what i read in the mod description, they have hax bullshit constant effects on par with, or even exceeding, your avg late-game nerevarine

The dire rolls aren't the problem, the problem is how the outcome of the dice rolls is communicated to the player.
If you miss a swing for example there should be an animation for that and not just your player swinging their weapon as normal but without anything happening. That's just terrible and Morrowind fags still won't admit that.

It’s enjoyable enough to revisit occasionally. I liked it much more on release but even back then I noticed how different it was and went right back to playing T2 when I was done with it. There’s nothing from T3 that I wish were in the previous games. Right now it’s part of my not-Thief stealth game rotation alongside Darkmod and whatever other stealth games I’m trying out. I used to find it surprising nobody made a suitable successor for T1/2, but after all this time I don’t think it can be done. Talk about original flavor.

Ok, so one small change is that they replaced "Freon" with "CFC gasses" but that's a pretty close translation anyway

>>10879190
Yeah, from what I looked up Freon is just one brand of CFCs. Like how Advil is a brand of Ibuprofen. I guess Freon was just a very well known one back then (I recall an episode of the original TMNT cartoon also talking about it, remember hearing about it by name often back then), but it's manufacture and import has been banned since the 90s apparently.

While it might not be a literal translation it's still more or less the same thing.

Why the fuck there would be gothic and greek art on 17-18 century transilvania?

When It should have been closer to orthodox greek art and bizantine art than it being a collection of french rococo shit?

Do you think I would have not noticed that?
Why the fuck a gothic castle in rumania have french rococo art?

Why the fuck is there a gothic cathedral on Hungary on the 17 century?

Had a apex 20" but now upgraded to a 24" trinitron i got for free from my aunt.

Spyro the Dragon > Year of the Dragon > Ripto's Rage

The first game has the best level design, they're the most fun to explore, and it's low on gimmicks. It also has the best super charge, it is a tons of fun to control and the super charge jump-glides are awesome. They not only nerfed the supercharge in the sequel, you can not longer have long jumps/glides, but it feels a lot worse to controls being more finnicky.
The only real negative is that combat is too simple and pretty much never a threat, something they worked on in the sequels.

I think spyro has some of the best hub worlds of any game period. Although the ones in spyro 2 are my favorite, each game sets up them up with a unique theme. exploring a brand new home world for the first time was always one of my best memories from each game.
>>
Everyone complains about all the characters and minigames but I actually like all of them in Spyro 3. It's not like Crash 3 where half the levels can suck my ass.
>>
I kind of flip-flop on whether I like 1 or 2 more. 1 is short and lacks gameplay variety, but the level design is better, the lack of missions/minigames to get in the way of exploration and platforming makes it feel more focused, and the brevity is honestly kind of refreshing; there's still a generous amount of levels, and the fact that you can beat some of them before their music track even loops means there's a constant influx of new environments, one every few minutes.

2 can kind of meander, and sometimes I'm not sure I like its more "cinematic" approach, with the increased cutscenes and necessity of tracking down NPCs to talk to and get objectives, but I guess 1 has plenty of cutscenes too if you actually sit through all the dragons, and most of the orb missions can be done from the get-go, usually you don't actually HAVE to talk to someone first. I genuinely like most of the missions (and I say missions instead of minigames, because there really are only a few where the controls and gameplay actually change, instead of just using Spyro's normal controls to do a task), and imo Spyro just plain doesn't feel complete without swimming.

In any case, to me 3 just feels like a lesser version of 2, though that only means it's like an 8/10 instead of a 10/10. I honestly don't mind the alternate characters, but I really don't appreciate shit like the submarine, hovertank, and UFO.
>>
replayed the trilogy recently. i think 3's minigames are way more annoying and time consuming than 2's. there's a lot more missions that feel designed around them wanting you to fail them a couple of time before getting them right. some were like that in 2 but it feels like they double downed on it. sgt byrd's missions suck and his music is whack. enemy and npc design in general feels worse. still a good game though but i find it the weakest of the bunch. best one is the first game imo. 2 is way better when you input the cheat that unlocks all skills so you don't have to backtrack.
>>
I never see anybody mention the lightning stone mission in Hurricos when bitching about 2, on my most recent replay I was surprised how annoying that was compared to how I used to remember it. I had to run around and replace practically every one before the thieves would show up, and there was only time to kill 2 or 3 at most before having to repeat the whole process. I swear to God the last thief despawned with the rock in his hands or something, I ran around for like 8 minutes unable to find it anywhere. I didn't want to have to come back to the level just for one orb, so I jumped off the cliff to kill myself and had to restart the entire mission. Whole thing took like 15 minutes.

about to play this for the first time and yes, the translated snes version because I am too much of a poor fag to buy this on DS and missed the opportunity to get that version back when it came out in 2009 since I was young and didn't know anything about the dragon quest games. any tips would be welcome and you are free to discuss who is better waifu between the 2 in the snes version. got the game booted up on a little hamdheld emulator and can't wait to have a comfy time with it.
