We mention which game we played last/are playing and a little review.
Just for the fuck if it, I'll do it as a haiku:
>exactly like Castlevania
>ripoff with stick and eagle
>does not make it bad
8 Eyes plays quite different to Castlevania though.
On topic, i just 1cc'd Kozure Okami from Nichibutsu, it's an early beat 'em up with pretty simple mechanics based on the "Lone Wolf and Cub" Manga. Can gets quite difficult at times, but it's worth trying out since it's easy to pick up and understand the mechanics.
Oh also, the PCB is rare as hell.
The Terminator - Sega CD
Hot DAMN! I keep getting surprised with this game. I went in expecting a generic run n gun like many of the other Terminator games. Fuck no, this game actually expects you to fight smart. Make good use of your grenades, and don't use them on t-800's. The T-101's can insta-kill you by running you over. Duck often.
THE SOUND! I swear to god some of the level BGM sounds like some Joe Satriani style rock. This might be my new favorite OST to a video game, holy shit.
The game actually seems to follow the plot of the first terminator movie pretty well too, I just beat the 3rd level(I think?) and I fought against some teleporting asshole then stepped into the portal, and now I have a shotgun and a trenchcoat. This shit is pretty damn good, and I'm having a blast with it. 10/10 music, 8/10 gameplay, 7/10 graphics, This is some solid stuff.
8/10 game, 10/10 GOAT Terminator game, will be the best Terminator game until someone does a proper remake of the PC game.
I like the idea of haiku better
> geoscape base build
> got good weapons researching
> shit, terror mission
Megaman: The Wily Wars
So I never got into Megaman, just missed it as a kid, but have always heard praise for it. I have fiddle around with 1 but didn't seriously attempt it, and tried the Game Gear one outta of curiosity. Oh and I play some random fangame (Megaman Rocks) that was decent. Was bored and wondering want to play next, wanted to play Megaman, found out there was this compilation, considered playing originals, saw it had additional stages so picked them.
Apparently it wasn't the wisest choice, music isn't poorly recreated, huge slowdown issues, and it's takes a solid button press to make him actually move left and right. But I feel it mostly captures the spirits of the originals.
I can see the appeal, the levels are fun, but holy fucking shit the bosses are fucking pure rage aneurysm inducing, I fucking cannot stand it. Thinking about it right now it's getting me pissed off. Seriously, it's either pick the rock weapon to his scissors or spend fucking 10 minutes doing 0.1 damage with the Mega Buster until they finally die - if you don't fucking die in 3 seconds (seriously what the fuck it up with Elec Man, faggot could seriously shoot me once and it was over). And heaven forbid you should die, because no fucking ammo refills for you! FUCKING ALIEN BEING IMMUNE TO THE MEGA BUSTER.
How can anyone stand this? I guess when the originals were around, games had to be Nintendo Hard, but nowadays it's just archaic.
All in all, I dunno like 7/10
Played some Rival Schools 2 on the Dreamcast. It's a great little gem, never really got much love from Capcom outside of a few guest appearances. It's really fun thematically and I like a lot of the characters. It's also funny, which is nice. The Aerial movement is a little clunky, but that's not so bad as it forces you to move around the arena and dash more, it's kind of like Street fighter EX but not shit.
Me again. Just made it to the factory level where you have to deal with the skeletonized t-800. Keep getting my ass handed to me since touching the t-800 is insta-death. Still loving this game and the soundtrack.
Trapped inside the walls
Looting gold, ammo and crowns
A soldier screaming
Throw the enemies
Even if you don't mean to
Throw bad guys to win
It's MGS except in 2D.
And it's better in almost every single way.
It's music is pretty kickass, too.
Crashed it every fucking time
Arcade's much better
At least I'm good at stunt jumps
I fucking hate bees
There's no point though, I can just play less
artificiallydifficult games, I'm not stuck in 1989 or whatever year the originals came out with no option but to master them. I just used save-states before each boss, because I don't want to waste a month of my life mastering a videogame, let alone three.
Currently playing Lufia 2 on Snes.
>Puzzles in dungeons are cool
>Dialogue is funny
It's a learning curve, it's old, they have ported it to newer systems and it works.. It's the most advanced fps game I've played to this day, it doesn't hold your hand and it will keep you engrossed for hours. Give it an hours worth of your time and you won't regret it. Nuff said

What is this in reference to?
exploring and having fun
like when I was young
it's my new favorite game
tankas are fancy haikus
sharp controls, decent graphics for the 64, attacking other ships is hard but I like using the spin move during jumps for style points (no actual points awarded) has neat unlocks but I can't beat the first cup on master difficulty. Is it even possible without cheating?
>Gameplay still feels fresh
>Even better than the first
>Why no more sequels?
>>clicky frantic joystick sounds
>>dying all the time
It's not hard and never was, because as you say there is the rock-to-their-scissors thing. In fact there are multiple rocks per boss, generally, though some tend to work better than others. The gimmick is shallow and kinda silly, but it isn't hard. Just try different weapons until you find the one that makes it easy; and if you don't have such a one then play a different stage instead. Anybody can do this. The trouble is that it's up to luck, whether you pick the right stage from the start--but you can always pick it later, if you didn't start on it.
