Any good romhacks out there? I've played the original a billion times and I'd like something new that isn't a randomizer

fair i'd also prefer it without that, though i don't think it ruins too much since you can move while doing a counter unlike in samus returns where the metroid fights are all stop and go.

i dont even remember QTEs in Dread
and i'd agree Dread has the best bosses in metroid in general, not just 2D Metroid. might've been the best part of Dread

when i did my 1st speedrun i was slapped in the face to learn you need at least 3 bars of health to enter the hyper beam cutscene with mother brain, otherwise you die. i thought simething wrong was going on. that alone brings a lot of tension to the fight if you didnt go crazy with the health upgrades. also lower brinstar is the best song in the game

When did you realize that RE3 is the best classic RE game?

>The city is very lively with RNG aspects, events, different interactables, new level design, etc

>Great OST
>Gunpowder gives you lots of flexibility in how you want to approach the game combat wise.
>Probably the most weapon variety in a single run (RE2 has them divided among characters, maybe Code Veronica has more than 3 though. They're a little more unique in 3 imo).

>>Nemesis encounters that are far superior to X in every fucking way
X is a surprise to mix up the second scenario, I would expect the thing the game is named after to be better than him.
>>Actually exploring the actual Raccoon City (unlike RE2)
You explore a bunch of back alleys. RE2 also never sold itself as being that.
>>The city is very lively with RNG aspects, events, different interactables, new level design, etc
The RNG aspects in the city events amount to whether you get dogs or crows, and "new level design" is complete bullshit.
>>choice system
Yeah, it sucks. You make about 3 worthwhile choices in the whole damn game, the rest are fucking laughable.
>>new mechanics like dodging, knockdowns, shoves, 180 quick turn
Three of those are the same mechanic and it was implemented horribly.

those R games arent bad, i think bomberman is probably most sustainable as a budget series anyway

>>10868117
Hero is the definitive single-player Bomberman game. Runners-up for that category are Bomberman 64, Bomberman Quest, and Bomberman Tournament. Have not played The Second Attack or Generation, so can't comment on those, though they're supposed to be really good, too.

Key thing about all of these is that they make Bomberman into an action-adventure game rather than an "arena-action" game like all the others and like the multiplayer is (best one of those is probably Mega Bomberman, but I hear great things about Saturn Bomberman Fight and Bomberman Online, too).

It's okay, they're calm.
In France, sellers must come by car to the city center or to a large parking lot to come and exhibit.

It's 5 a.m., people don't have time to get their stuff out of the car when guys are harassing them to find out if they have video games!

We all know that modifying Game Boy games to include colour, like the Super Game Boy and GBC did, is wrong and taints the original vision, but were the games intended to be played in green, or can you play in just black and white too?

Kek I remember getting filtered by that jetpack game pretty hard. The DK machine wasn't too bad tho
>>
>>10864987
If you like it now you'll probably enjoy the whole thing. I think its great. I only played it for the first time recently since I missed it back in the day but I genuinely don't think its tedious or too big at all. My only criticism is that a couple of the minigames are a little obnoxious but even thats really not a big deal. I actually think its slower pace and more atmospheric take on a 3D platformer is really refreshing and unique for the time.

I gotta try Banjo Tooie next, its another one I didn't play at the time but I loved the first one and people complain about it for the same reasons as DK64 so Im thinking its probably good.
>>
>>10864987
Bad, never. It's not a bad game. But for me at least it started getting tedious around Frantic Factory.

Only because you grew up on it. Zoomers grew up on games like Minecraft where failure doesn't exist. I tried to teach my 14 year old nephew to play SMB1 and after dying repeatedly to the first goomba he smashed my NES and threw it in the trash.

2 or three times. I got stuck in that temple with all the tubes first time I played it. I got lost, ragequit, then tried it again a couple of weeks or months later and found my way pretty easily. Never had any problems with the water temple in Ocarina Of Time. The one in Twilight Princess had me stumped for a little while. For some reason, I'm terrible at mapping out dungeons in my head. And I never liked using dungeon maps.
Don't know if they are actually useful in Zelda games.
>>
>>10869753
Randomizers generally have sanity checks to make sure you can't get stuck. But yeah they generally shuffle placement of items to force players to go through the game in a weird order. Sometimes a run can be super fucking easy where you get super good equipment early on, or maybe you'll have a run where you're struggling through the entire thing with the most baseline equipment.
>>
usually once every 1-2 years. i like to go thru the dark world dungeons 1-4-3-2-5-6-7 for the red tempered sword early. and i always liked how you actually need a good amount of rupees for the zora flippers. wish more Zelda games made use of money
