Over the eons many a game have become lost to the sands of time and greedy hoarders. Post undumped games or beta stuff you will never get to play.
Does this mofo even dump his shit?

I'm still wondering what happened to Vertexer, whether it's dumped or not, since he apparently has a PCB in possession.
This guy needs to start dumping. But he won't and the creators are actually looking to release the game/rom.
Midas should release their Game Boy Color games. They sound way too good to be lost.
And look quite good too.
>a game where you shoot stuff on a giant racing hamster.
Monster Maker for Sega Saturn would have been a trpg.
All the games in the series are very cute.
Another anime game with cute girls lost.

Little Dream for DC also had a little girl.
Jazz Jackrabbit 3D for the PC would have ran on the Unreal engine. The public test demo version is easy to find. There are a few levels but not a whole lot to do. I think there might be multiplayer too.
>tfw you'll never play a gorgeous looking rpg on the snes
only pro is Banjo out of its cancellation but the game looked fucking solid on the snes. Wish we could have both
I'm happy we eventually got mother 3 but I still wonder about the n64 version. The concert art makes it look really bizarre, even this picture with lucas sitting in the mouth of some mech looks pretty weird. I'm mostly interested in the removed plot points and ending. Itoi said he was thought the original ending he wrote was "dirty" and even talked about how "the ending would make the player question the main character" is really interesting.
A large rpg like that was too ambitious for the n64. Compare it to Quest 64 and you can see why that game has barely any npcs. The dark n64 graphics and lighting would have fit the game perfect. If Nintendo didn't fuck up the N64DD.
Connections & rich as fuck and loves to brag about his wife. Yeah im jelly.
They did dump Hammer Away. I guess we just have to wait.
Galloping Ghost also gets a lot of rare arcade games.
I know there is a less finished version of Primal Rage 2 but Im not sure if they dumped this yet?
He collects some, yes, but he isn't much of a hoarder. I think he resells a large portion of these games. He strikes me more as a reseller who somehow has great connections.
I hate to be too critical, but yeah. That was awful gameplay. I wish people wouldn't be so eager to point out differences from the released game. All they are doing is making him ask even more for it. Pretty sure he just sees it as a ticket to other things and doesn't give two shits about the proto itself.

And I also don't think he realizes that, even though a lot of people in the comments are intrigued by it, most wouldn't pay more than maybe a few bucks for it. Those who would pay a fair price aren't going to pony up several thousands or some other nonsense since, while interesting, it really isn't that different from the final game. Any other X series proto that has sold within the last year went for right around $1,000. Not cheap, of course, but I suspect that he thinks it is worth a lot more (which it isn't).
A white city Rockman X might command a higher price, but an apparently mostly finished X3 with some different sprites just isn't worth oodles of money to all but the most autistic.
What is with the fucking MGS-ass Lucas in the corner? Also, I'm glad the final design for him is unique compared to the past two protagonists.
But truth be told, I sometimes wonder what ending Itoi had in mind as well. The final game seemed tragic as it is.
Basically one of the best guys around and super unpopular. Really sad.
If you care, he has a youtube channel and uploads interesting stuff, sometimes. Like the original version of the tune you just posted before it was dumped down for GB and GG.
Mad Dancing by HUMAN is interesting in that it was to feature 3 plane fighting akin to Fatal Fury or Guardian Heroes, as well as other unorthodox design choices for a beat em up at the time such as levels consisting of 3 rounds followed by an overall level boss, lacking health restore items and recovering health while holding still or after each round instead, blocking by holding the attack button, crouching while holding the jump button and jumping upon releasing the button, lacking bonus lives meaning if your health bar runs out it's game over. There's also the regular super attacks and special attacks that deplete your energy bar with each use. There's no gameplay video currently available and it's unknown if someone possesses the game.
Another interesting game is Aztec21's Warlocks of the Fates for the Neo Geo, the first sprite-based fighting game to feature flying and air dashing. A company called NCI announced that they had obtained a proto cart and were location testing it before reproducing it for commercial distribution, but that was back in 2012 and there has been no update ever since. The game itself might be crap but the graphics and music are really awesome.
Not retro but Ken-Ju for the Atomiswave arcade platform was to be Sammy's, the studio publishing the Guilty Gear series and creators of the Rumble Fish games, first attempt at a 3D fighting game. Featuring cel-shaded graphics and interesting character designs, it went through location testing before ultimately being scrapped for reasons unknown to this day. A proto appeared for sale back in 09-10 that fell in the hands of a greedy Assemblergames hoarder.
An interesting blogpost about the game, it's designs and possible connection to Capcom Fighting All-Stars, another fighting game that never saw the light of day.
I still occasionally hear players talk about the location test builds of Darkstalkers 2. But they have yet to be dumped.
Hmm, this seems likely. It would be very difficult to kill a non mind-controlled Claus considering he was the catalyst that kicked off the story in the first place (Wondering where he is, is he alright, etc) The fact that Lucas is the one who would have to kill him makes it worse.
It's a shame that nothing came of this other than Super Noah's Ark 3D
I always interpreted it as that when lucas pulled the final needle he would be in such grief from claus's death that instead of the world being reborn he would instead destroy it. Just how I interpreted it.
Thanks these all look awesome. I've never seen KenJu before but those cell shaded models look really good. Gameplay reminds me of Rival Schools. Arcady type games are my favorite and its sad that so many get abandoned or go missing thanks to collectors. Warlocks also looks great but the voice samples are slightly annoying. Mad Dancing would have been interesting and probably played more like a fighting game rather than streets of rage.
