Is Demons Crest underrated? I never see it in any best SNES games lists. Would it deserve a place?

It's a hidden gem alright. Now that the dust has settled, it aged well.

Why 3 is so mediocre compared with the other TR?
Even Chronicles is better.
The entire level design it's a fucking mess
The difficulty is brutal with no reasons at all
You cant' even know what items you pick up (WHY)
Sure the artic levels are nice with The thing vibe, but that's it.

2 is also very flawed. It's hard to develop these games in a year and it's kind of a shame core were put through that.

>2 is also very flawed
It's not, the level design is nearly perfect and the difficulty is ok, and the feature "pick up three dragon or no bonus" is neat.

>> No.6144446

>You cant' even know what items you pick up (WHY)
Implementation of the object preview function was probably unsatisfactory in the ps1 version, leading the devs to disable it for all versions of 3. In the Area 51 demo, the 3d previews would clip through things. The beta from 1 month before release ended up just using static previews that didn't really look that good. The implementation didn't have as many issues in the PC version, but apparently they weren't the primary focus. Here's a couple videos for refresher.

You might want to try the MD Raiden.

They're "shit" cause they have lives, but recoveries are sometimes literally impossible when playing the checkpoint versions/sides. Somewhat less the case with the MD port of 1. Anyway the designers of Kyukyoku Tiger (the Toaplan game Raiden is a shameless copy of) explicitly stated that recoveries and checkpoints were very thought out and the core of the design. Something Raiden never got "right". But if you can accept it for what it is (one life game with a preview of the next n frames before you formally lose your credit) then it is quite fine.

Tonight has been nothing but absolute shit and all I want to do is play a 22 year old computer game

I've been trying to play the Game of Life (1998) and nothing has worked. It worked well on my laptop, once I got a few things on there everything was fine, besides the color, which corrected itself. Now when I play on the laptop, the color is fucked up again despite no changes being made. Anyway, so I tried it on my desktop so I could do netplay and nothing has worked.
I tried to run it in compatibility mode for Windows XP, 98, 95 and none of them worked
I tried using the vgVoodoo controller and it did nothing
I even went with some guy's registry entry and adjusted it all but not even that worked.
the game just fucking refuses to work and I've about had it, I just don't understand why nothing can be done for this game
Any suggestions I'm absolutely open to and any help whatsoever I'd appreciate. I hope you guys can understand, I just want to have fun, that's all I ask for

>> No.6144193

Oh I forgot to post it
Here's every resource I've used to figure this out
Also here's what I'm trying to run this on, before anything I've got my old Dell Latitude I can run this perfectly on, but for netplay I'd prefer if this can get up and running well on Win 7 or 10
-i5 7500
-16gb RAM
-GTX 1060 GPU
-Windows 7-64bit

The 64-bit OS is probably the biggest problem since the game was made for x86 systems

>> No.6144196

I mean that's worst case scenario, and at the same time I could just stream it and play with friends that way, but I'd still like to give it a shot before giving up
How does it work with your system? You think I might be missing something in the install? I just dump the vgVoodoo exe where life.exe is and configure from there, nothing else really needed as far as I found

The Saturn would have been moderately more successful in North America. But still lost. And the DC wouldn't have a Sonic game until what would be Adventure 2.

It's a pretty fun game where you have to paint the floors of a castle while avoiding/defeating enemies where every new level is a different room, you can use magic to attack or defend yourself from enemies but that costs MP (You can shoot, stop time, walk inside of walls, etc)
every couple of rooms you learn new magic stuff from the king (pic related)

the game is pretty good and has a lot of different enemies, i haven't finished the game tho so i don't know if it has an ending or not, the game is pretty fucking hard
Eh kinda, it has a lot more depth tho

I had the most profound experience last night playing super metroid on lsd- I realized something i've known for years but often forget. And its that snes was and always will be the greatest system of all time. Stuff before that era was too primitive by modern standards and stuff after focused too much on technology and less on the gameplay experience (of course theres major exceptions to both).

Theres a certain innocence of snes games that is unmatched, made before the internet was big, before everything was connected, before political division, before everything was super fucked up. The graphics and soundtracks are like beautifu mosaic clockwork.

I dont give a shit about modern gaming. I think overwatch is for fuckin losers, and that people who play whatever the next elder scrolls will be have way too much time on their hands. ps5 is going way too far with tech, and gaming has lost its roots. I'll never forget snes, and ill never forget this experience. When video games were good, and everything was right in the world. I hope I have children someday just so I can show them these games.
