So, apparently just a few hours ago Atari bought Intellivision (I thought Atari itself was now just a brand owned by some other company that was just using the name/logo?)

... and they are already whoring out the branding with merch like clothing. For some insane reason they also seem to want to keep the Amico going, I guess some of the people from 1983 are still there making decisis if that is the case. Wonder if ColecoVision is next, might as well unite the three big players of the 2nd gen to... umm.. did they even have any mascots to do a crossover with?

>leave the dungeon and do things out of order with the new item.
There are plenty of situations where you need to beat the dungeon boss before a cutscene or event will activate. It's not a deal breaker, but in my imaginary perfect Zelda game story locks would be reserved for very specific situations, not sprinkled around the entire game.

it's actually the opposite.

DCAU/BTAS harley fucked her way to a degree while the version from her current cartoon was a relatively competent but inexperienced psychiatrist. like she was able to help ivy deal with her shit but couldn't see through the joker's manipulation.

i personally prefer the version from the batman who was a daytime talkshow quack ala dr. phil.

What a shit character. She is literally only """"popular""""" because DC needs to shill

There is ltierally nothing interesting or remarkable about Harley Quinn. Contrast her to the joker.

She literally was made as a character who only existed to reflect from the joker and show how he is to people around him (AKA evil) remove the joker and who is she?

Literally nothing.
She is not even a female joker or something, she has no theme to herself no nothing, jonx from LOL is a far better female joker.

Theres is a boss in super metroid, that falls to a river of lava. When the boss is only bones, it
still can move, roar and destroy a wall before falling. But i wonder, how that creature could
move, roar and destroy a wall when it was only bones. No muscles, no blood only bones and stillit could do all those actions with only bones. How that is posible?

>>10963031
then what?
>>
>>10962564
It was his dying gasp. By the time you see him fall
through the wall, his body has fully disintegrated leaving only the skeleton, but he had enough strength to get into that position before dying in a last ditch effort to avenge himself and stop Samus. The sound he makes before falling the wall is a soft grunt, it's basically the last air leaving his lungs. Also note that although he's drawn as clean bones, you could think of this as a visual metaphor for a acid stripped body. If the graphics where more detailed then there would probably be some remaining gore on those bones.

So I was replaying TFE since I played it way back as a kid.
I remember linking TFE back in the day, however....
As I play it now TFE looks bad.
The fights are repetitive and the un interesting AI of the enemies makes it boring.

The game also spawns enemies on every step you take forwards making it tedious to try to progress.

The Skeleton fights are boring and repetitive with tedious circle strafing of this crap.

I look back at games like DOOM II and see that DOOM aged far better the enemies of DOOM are not this predictable of running at you non stop. Also DOOM lets you simply walk away from most encounters

TFE also has a nasty rabbit of spawning enemies right behind you. Some of it can be because I play the GOG version and there can be glitches however once the game spawned a rocket walker when I was facing the wall and it insta killed me like taking 100 HP away with one rocket (I think this is a glitch). I also did not like the random traps, I pick up one HP team since I'm low on HP and the game simply traps me and spawns laser walkers around me. Clear death sentence.

It looks more like blind memorization f what spawns where.

It's funny how the anon goes on to explain this and it's literally just "I was bad at Resident Evil."
Why doesn't this excuse fly with any other RE game?
>RE1 is bad because I wasted all my ammo thinking the Guardhouse was done, and then Plant-42 raped me!
>RE2 is bad because I wasted all my ammo after beating the Super Tyrant, and G-5 raped me!
>RE3 is bad because I wasted all my ammo in the Clocktower, and the Nemesis boss raped me!

If the NES has SunSoft, the Mega Drive has Treasure, and the N64 has Rareware, what do the other systems have?

By this I mean I a studio besides the big ones like Konami or Square that just popped off releasing innovative ludo after ludo classics on one system, but faded into irrelevancy shortly thereafter.

I wouldn't say each of these devs released "classics", but their output was solid for one particular system before their demise/decline.

PC Engine: Compile, they pivoted hard toward Puyo Puyo after 1993, shut down in 2003
Sega Saturn: Lobotomy Software, bought by Crave Entertainment in 1998 before being quickly shut down
Super Nintendo: Quintet, released a few not-as-good games for Saturn/PS1 before becoming a support dev
PlayStation: Psygnosis, UK offices bought by Eidos in 1998; Exact/Sugar & Rockets, rolled into SCEI in 2000

The only thing they are really notable for is Powerslave it seems. They also ported Duke Nukem 3D and Quake to Saturn, but those aren't exclusives like Radiant Silvergun and Guardian Heroes
