Am I in for a good time?
Also recent buys or backlog thread
Here's a time stamp because I didn't do that before, but yea I got the physical version cause it would've been better and authentic to do, also got MGS2
Boktai really is something special. The solar power gimmick might get old, though. If you have a DS, Lunar Knights is a good sequel with a really good soundtrack. Years later, I still find myself humming songs from that game.
Yea I remember hearing about that game way back, but I forgot all about it until now. I might get it after playing this.
>It came with a Nintendo Power flyer
The solar gimmick is utilized in a lot of very cool ways but in the end it's still an annoyance. Still, the game is excellent and I highly recommend you play through the whole thing at least once.
I remember being hyped as fuck when it was released way back then, they chose the worst time to release it though and it was right when school started again, meaning fall was around the corner (Sept 2003, last half of the month I think).
I was never one to play vidya for just a couple of minutes, I wanna sit down for an hour at a time and I quickly lost interest in it until more than a decade later when I just played it in an emulator with a sunlight cheat. It was a great game when I finally got around to it, don't get me wrong, but the gimmick was a bad idea. Then again, fall and winter in NYC aren't forgiving.
It does actually what the fuck anon how do you know.
The actually yea you could get some stuff for MMNB4 and also get megaman stuff for Boktai. The reason the cartridge is longer is because The game actually uses sunlight to power the gun in the game, as in REAL LIFE sun.
Benefits? Only requirements, you need UV rays to hit the sensor on the cart and recharge your in-game solar gun. Of course, I heard its possible to work around this with a greenhouse lamp.
Fun tip: MGS 4 has the solar gun and Snake shouts SUNLIGHT! when he raises it. You don't need any specific location though, just be outside in daytime chapters. Don't think it can be recharged in act 3 as the whole chapter takes place at night.
Well it charges the gun up, but the manual also says that too much sun will overload your gun as well, so you have to be careful in deciding where you play the game, also talks about how glass makes sunlight weaker so playing near a window might not always work.
I swear this game sounds like a HIDEO Kojima game alright, blow your mind by merging the game with real life and keep screwing with you to the end.
You only REALLY need the sun for piledriver boss fights. I think that means you need to be outside 5-6 times.
You should check out Boktai 2 and 3 (on emulator) if you like them. 2 really builds on the western stuff while keeping all the Norse mythology in play.
Forgot my pic
>Mom walks in
>Why are you sitting next to that weird light?
Would just like to note, playing Boktai on a GBA SP will hamper your experience as carts fit in on the bottom. So you'd play it at a weird angle and that's no fun. Played it on my Micro and it was fun.
Your gun uses solar energy as power. Using your gun takes power. If you're outside (ingame) and the sun is out, you can hold A to charge your gun. The more sun is out, the faster it charges. If you're inside (ingame), there will sometimes be windows where light goes through, and you can charge in those spots as well.
After you beat a boss, you need to drag their coffin back to the Piledriver to purify them. Using the Piledriver requires irl sunlight to work. You activate 4 mirrors around the vampires coffin with your gun, and they start hurting the vampire. The vampire will attack you and try to break the mirrors; you dodge the attacks and shot the mirrors with your gun to fix them. The more sun there is, the faster you defeat the vampire.
But wait, there's more!
What if there's no sun? How do you charge your weapon? Well, when you're in the sunlight (in real life), you'll passively earn some solar energy which goes to the Sun Bank. The longer you're out in the sun, the more solar energy you get. You can withdraw solar energy to charge your weapons, and there's also interest in the bank, so it (very slowly) generates solar energy. You can also take out loans to get solar energy for your gun, but the interest rate is exorbitant.
There are also some items you can use to restore solar energy, but you do need actual sunlight to use the piledriver. Also there's no better feeling than playing Boktai at noon on a summer day.
>Decide to pick it back up in the dead of winter.
>Only have an MGR plasma lamp.
>100% the game (with the exception of the bonus dungeon), including maxing out the Solar Tree.
It was apparently dangerous for the cart, but I got my fill.
Manlet by any chance? You have to be small if you think that shit was comfortable at all, pic related its probably you.
What happened if you couldn't pay off the interest? Didn't you have to run on a treadmill?
Also it was great coming back to my save file years later and having a full bank account from interest.
Also also, you can use the solar grenades in pile driver boss fights. I believe with 5 you can kill the first couple bosses, but its mainly just for help if it gets cloudy during the fight.
I think you had to run on a treadmill, I never actually took a loan.
That's true, I forgot to mention solar grenades.
There are a few different kind of grenades in Boktai. Solar grenades give you two bars of sunlight (even indoors, iirc) for maybe 20 seconds or so.
I recently got

>Fragile Dreams: Farewell, Ruins of the Moon
at some resale game stores. Did I do good /v/?
Right, we shouldn't have any talk of that around here. Glad you agree
Absolutely no questions, no discussion, no back and forth conversation or anything of the sort. This is not the place for that.
'Cause it definitely is a great discussion when someone wanders into a thread without knowing the first thing about a game. It's a sure path to intelligent and worthy discourse!
See, my statement about someone wandering into a thread and not even knowing the first thing about the game? That's not an exaggeration.
Your representation of my argument as being "nobody should ask questions ever"? That's a strawman argument. When you are incapable of actually addressing the point of the person you're talking to and you have to substitute another point to argue against you're really not worth arguing with at all.
Thanks for being a run-of-the-mill retard and making this simple.
No problem, I honestly remembered this game because some other anon talked about it. That's how I usually hear about games to get, whether it's a good idea or not remains to be seen, then again I got a physical Boktai so I think it's turning out alright.
>Having actual vidya discussion and asking questions is against the law
>Plenty of threads that are just veiled shitposting like yet another kickstarter 'game' or fap requests
What have YOU added to this thread, dear faggot who forbids someone from asking questions about Boktai? I got plenty of time, I'm taking a dump.
>buying Boktai in the winter
See you again in march.

Never EVER NEVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HA H S H AGGGAH H AHGASH DA AGGAAAAAA
Dunno, famicom. Sega does seem to be in high production this year.
I still see the sun here, it hasn't start snowing yet. But you make a good point, also damn I remember custom robo.
I got it on amazon, the tag says 20 dollars but I bet it sold higher then that because of its rarity, then again some games are just sold at that price, I ended up with mischief makers at 20 dollars. So it usually comes from seller to seller
20 dollars. Sorry about the long ass post.
The reason that whole thing is happening is because someone asked how the games solar gimmick worked, and with how things are here, things got volatile quick. I can understand keeping dumbasses out, but this thread is one of the few chill threads I've seen in a while.
>I can understand keeping dumbasses out, but this thread is one of the few chill threads I've seen in a while.
Thread seemed pretty cool until someone got mad that people were answering some other guy asking about the game
Those questions didn't seem to dumb to me either since this game is kind of unique and all
