Opinions on this series? I really enjoy the visual style and music, but the gameplay leaves a bit to be desired. It still manages to be fun, but they're really easy to beat and I managed to 1cc each game in under an hour and a half each. I also miss that Part 2 didn't have splitting paths like Part 1 did with its 5th stage (Unless you count those dungeon rooms full of annoying zombies when you fall in a pit.)
Part 3 should've been really cool with the multiple endings and creepy cutscenes but it has serious balancing issues by just spamming your AoE as Monster Rick and annihilating everything in the game because the monsters are too irritating otherwise. I heard the Japanese version has different stats for your moves and enemies though, maybe I can check that out soon.
I also played Wanpaku Graffiti. I thought the Continue system would give me shit with strictly 5 lives and no continues (Unless you count the password) along with Rick's lack of invincibility frames, but I managed to annihilate the game on my 2nd attempt after realizing how forgiving it is with super frequent health drops after every "difficult" section. Still enjoyable, but clearly made for little kids.
Overall an interesting weekend trying out all these cool games. I know there's a reboot of it too but it never got a re-release on PC as far as I know and I don't own either an 360 or PS3 (Plus a physical copy is like 40 bucks). Maybe one day I'll give it a shot, but not today.

Why did Konami disown this game? It's one of the best they ever made and they've never ported or even mentioned it since. Thank god for MAME.

>> No.9945051


I'm guessing it didn't sell well

>> No.9945052

Probably because the 1st level music is a blatant ripoff of a Kenny Loggins song and Konami doesn't want to be sued.

Why is it so underrated?

9 replies omitted. Click Reply to view.
>> No.9945012

People who care about the actual racing part of Mario Kart tend to dislike it because it's sort of bad in that regard. People who like it tend to like it for the music, aesthetics, the co-op gimmick etc.

>> No.9945038

This, it's bland, no hopping, excessive rubber banding and far too linear.

>> No.9945042

If Double Dash is so good how come it's the only Mario Kart to be outsold by the Smash Bros on its respective console?

>> No.9945046

Because the Smash Bros in question is Melee. Getting outsold by that game isn't something to feel too bad about.

>> No.9945075

>Caring about item balance in a mario kart game
why? double dash & wii were much more fun with power ups like mega shroom and chain chomp. Whats the point of the game if the items are "Balanced"? just play outrun.

A thread dedicated to helping others find those lost treasures from the past they were never able recall the name too. If it has to do with old PC game collections or PC-ware that's no longer licensed, long forgottern, or just obscure, it's welcome here.
I'm personally looking for a late 90's mecha rts side scroller that plays somewhat like assault suit Leynos. You commanded a small army in real time and operated your own customizable unit, could command and move units/ships as well and customize your lieutenants and ships. Every level would have you fighting harder enemies as you gradually commanded more of the universe. Someone help me figure out this obscure title, because I'm at my wits end trying to find it.

It's good but not the mainstream choice for favorite FF so all the tryhards who want to flaunt their gamer cred flock to it. Kinda like the guys who say Rondo of Blood or Bloodlines is the best Castlevania.

i never really much cared for any vidya story but its pretty grounded for ffslop. people seem to like it. i just found the combat and strategy way more fun in this game than most rpgs. yeah theres tons of overpowered shit but if you just play it more or less normally without trying to go ham i think its pretty fun. also id honestly recommend playing this game on emulator so you can speed up your random battles. they are quite a time sink.

>> No.9945021

If it isn't fun, it's not good, and tactics is way too fucking slow and boring to be fun.

>> No.9945085

Amazing soundtrack, good story, and the job system applied to a strategy RPG is one of the most genius things to ever happen to gaming.

Nocrt fag here. I have a question for you guys regarding color: how would you say the colors on a game played on real hardware hooked up to a CRT with RGB compare to emulating the same game on a good-ish LCD, without filters or anything?

For example, for anyone who has this game and cares to test this, how does pic related look on your setup?

Obviously I don't expect any two displays will ever look 100% the same due to a bunch of factors, but for this specific comparison, is there a big difference, assuming both displays are at least decently calibrated?

I can't find the sauce but the Japanese version he is referred to by male pronouns.

Would you reccomend this for a dude who really liked Oracle of Seasons? I know they were both made by Capcom and it seems like they brought over some concepts from Oracle like the golden beasts. Is there anything like the ring system in this one? I really liked that Seasons had linear story progression but so many secrets and optional items, hoping this is kind of the same deal.
