ITT: that one series you wish wasn't dead
It made it until last gen but by now it looks really dead.
Juuust scored a Sega Saturn and this game today. Incredibly excited.
On topic though: Bomberman.
One of the most commercially successful franchises in gaming history. Had ~70 games. And now? Best we get is an iOS/Android app announcement.
I could name a shit ton. but in interest of the thread Ill say Fear Effect because they did have a third game planned.
This game defined comfiness
Just scootin around in my lil sub, salvaging treasure, trading resources, exploding sea life in a shower of gibs with lightning beams
You should have bought Clockwork Knight 2. It has the entire first game on the same disc as an unlockable.
Good taste though, CK 1 and 2 are among the most charming, polished, soulful games on the Saturn.
My most favorite game series of all-time is not only dead, but even its 20th anniversary was ignored
so many fighting games simply ran their course, and don't need a resurrection. Then, there are games like this one... This game could be so awesome, with the new SF5 engine and some updated costumes for the characters. Hell, even totally new characters playing with the same tropes. like, their everybody's kids, or something.
also, Darkstalkers. because, in this world of grimdark shooters, Tomb Raider clones, and open world RPGs, we need some stupid fun
Ah, I didn't have a say in it, the guy I bought it off of just happened to have it and a couple other games. I'm glad to have picked it up though, maybe a while further down the line I'll pick up CK2 but I just ordered Panzer Dragoon as well so I have plenty to play for a good while now.
Wild Arms Sixth showdown when.
At the very least I want them to get to Wild Arms Magnificent Seventh
... I've played that game. What do you like about it? I'm intrigued.
Tell me about it. I just bought 3 of the ps1 games in hopes of playing it with a guide just to get that Goemon fix. It's ridiculous how they've turned it into a stupid pachinko machine.
Not OP here. When I was a little kid I was transfixed by the art style in these games - the colorful characters, as well as some of the levels, like the library level in the second game. It was probably the first 3D (well, 2.5D I guess) game I played where all the models didn't look like complete crap.
I should go play them again and see if they hold up.
Also Rocket Knight Adventures
2nd Offense was such a step up to the original and it could have just gotten better too. What happened to car shooters /vr/?
New Virtual On arcade game with a card system like Initial D. Win currency from matches and buy new robot parts/weapons.
i hope bloodstained holds up to its pricetag
if you liked the rest of the series you'll like 5
Asgard is awesome
Dont make me talk about that new game
>tfw the "every level is unique and absurdly difficult" genre is dead
Nah man. The last decent one was Fatal Shadows. Z had some neat concepts but was a half assed game and all the others started straying way too far from what made Tenchu loved in the first place.
There was that and some weird Bomberman styled game. Anyway Shadow Assassins ditched a lot of the core mechanics in favor of an extremely linear game with an RE4 style camera and QTE takedowns.
Im both surprised and dismayed that Falcom never went any further with popful mail
With today's technology to have more realistic character models & damage to limbs/clothing/scenery, it would be so awesome.
Looks neat but that's more of a Monster Land II clone than an actual sequel, it's like a respectful imitation. Still, I'm glad the original creator of the series is supposedly having some fun with it, but it's just not the same as an entry that acts as a true evolution of the series. Especially without Maki Ōzora designing the art and graphics
It has a cheesy 90's Sega charm.
DAAAYYYTTOOOONNAAAAA isn't heaven on the ears either but you can't have Daytona without it
Likewise with ERRBODY'S SUPER SONIC RACING TRY TO KEEP YOUR FEET RIGHT ON THE GROUND
With the exception of Blood Omen 2, this was an amazing story telling experience. It ended decently, but I feel like they could have come out with one more. Maybe two.
Despite playing it a fuckton at my cousins house, I remembered that Clockwork Knight existed for the first time in like 13 years when I played Undertale, for pic-related reasons
Megaman Legends and Mother comes to mind.
One felt like it needed resolution to the story, so the whole highly calculated almost soulless ReDash seems so pointless. Mother doesn't need one I just really enjoyed the games.
This game was so comfy. I was introduced through PSOII BB's quest with him in it and it was equally comfy. In an ideal world there'd be a special edition for every Holiday too.
Toejam and Earl is getting a revival. I have no idea how it will end up but I funded it just so I could get some toys and more dumb merchandise I kind of regret spending so much money on.
It's late I worded my post so wrong. I only played the Gameboy Advance version when I was a kid but I have been meaning to play the remastered Saturn Version. I never played the Wii U version. I knew the games existed as a kid but I had no idea where to find a Sega Saturn or even a Dreamcast. The GBA was so much fun but you had to download it from the Gamecube Episode II servers (I meant to EP2 not BB in the last post) so I don't know if I could even play it again.
I wish it was still a franchise, I might have been able to play more games or play them now.
Beautiful, wacky series of games. I mean, at least they tried to make a comeback on the PSP, which was not only good, but released internationally, even in 'murica. But I need more.
I grabbed up the Wii one as soon as I could because I was so happy it wasn't being left in the dust. I couldn't tell if it was nostalgia or not, but I didn't really like it. The surface stuff was like, kind of a dumb, involved story (unlike the vague, more effective story of the original) and not quite as charming graphics as the original. But I thought I was just sucking nostalgic dick too hard.
Then I met a friend who said he played the Wii one first and went back to the Saturn after all these years and he said he hated the Wii one as well. I figure it's a mix of trying to catch lightning in a bottle twice, as well as not as good design in most aspects leading to what only looks like a disappointment in comparison.
fucking capcom, for putting it on the fucking PSP
>Playing it on my PSTV
