>> No.5056435

>>5056384
Hardware was solid but as you said "cartridges". Solid state memory is faster than reading a disk, but the cartridges were practically antiquated by launch and a joke in terms of capacity towards the end of the generation. Nintendo understood the hardware and capabilities and made great first party games, but it was prohibitively difficult for most 3rd parties to develop and restrict game files to ~60mb

I mean Zero Hour on the N64, Time to Kill and Planet of the Babes on the PS1. I guess there were a couple original Game Boy Colour and GBA games as well.

Duke Nukem : Zero Hour on the N64 was a decent run and gun styled 3D platformer for the console. With the "yellow keys" for movement/ strafe and analog stick for look/ turn. It controls quite well on the N64 gamepad. The graphics looked decent for an N64 title, and the level design was decent. This game was made by Eurocom, who also did the N64 port of Duke Nukem 3D. Not a bad game. I kinda wish there were more N64 games like this one.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EpDgHkTqsQ8

> Duke Nukem: Time To Kill
This game is for the PS1 and developed by >N-Space who was a bit of a shovelware developer. I never played this one much, but it is a 3rd person 3D corridor shooter with some clunky controls and really box-y looking graphics. It was OK for just being a generic shooter, but it was also pretty repetitive.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2xQKI9sQZ64


> Duke Nukem: Planet of the Babes:

I never played this one. It looked like a weird mix of Tomb Raider, Metal Gear Solid (It's like a parody of MGS) and other genres. In some ways it looks amusing from the video I posted below. Also developed by N-Space.

It's actually pretty good for a 3rd person corridor run and gun style 3D shooter. One of the more underlooked titles on the PS1.

Maybe, might need to study /v/ for a bit first though. One of the reasons for /vr/'s creation was to discuss games so old that they fell outside of the current cultural zeitgeist. This place exists for things that have zero traction at all on /v/, such as the PS2/GBA era that >>5056324 pointed out. There is nowhere for that generation to exist at the moment, the /v/ crowd is too young and crotchety faggots like >>5056327 don't want to admit that their console generation is not the only one that is old as shit now.

Seriously I don't understand what it is with the oldfags, either they hate the thought of sharing their retro safespace with a newer generation or they don't want someone shoving their perceived "Golden Era" off its pedestal (considering the amount of bitching I see on here about "modern gaming", I think it's the later).

I prefer the first one, never finished 2. Not that 2 is bad, but I couldn't get into it. I guess because it feels slower.

My memory is fuzzy on favorite areas, events, and songs. Haven't played since it came out. The Dwarf Village sticks out in my mind as being comfy.

First experience was the demo disc. I had never played anything like it, and it still feels pretty unique. Fell in love with it instantly. Best memory isn't from the game, but me running around with my dog in the backyard pretending I'm Tomba.

ITT: we discuss the best MtG videogame ever released --
1997's "Magic: The Gathering" by Micropose.

The true draw was the game world "Shandalar". A sandbox-style psuedo-RPG where the PC was dropped in the middle of the map with no instructions and a shitty deck.

The game only included sets up to The Dark, but not every card from any given set was included. For example, you won't see any gold multi-colored cards from Legends.

I used a very similar deck(Ivory Tower, Wheel of Fortune in addition to those cards) to beat the final boss. Wiped all his health, had over 100 health myself by the time it was done.

Friendly reminder there are updated cardsets available for Shandalar. Most recent one I've messed with is 2010, but that was a long time ago. Could be newer stuff since then.

While I really like WD's localizations, because I don't care if the story becomes silly with silly jokes; I'm playing to have fun, not to care about sub-par stories.

But damn their gameplay changes make me crazy: the bosses in Popful became annoyingly unfun (too fast/strong/resilient), and it really breaks with the slower pace of the rest of the game.

Don't get me started on Silhouette Mirage.

If you get all that what are you moaning about? Woolsey translations are very minor offenders compared to the likes of Working Designs and others, considering he localized some of the most critically acclaimed JRPGs in history it's safe to say the fidelity you're talking about was met for a majority of people. They're hardly 'colorful' at all in the grand scheme of things.
