Apparently NiGHTS was written entirely in Assembly and the code was completely worthless to anyone trying to use it for something other than NiGHTS. It was never "Stolen" or "Used" for SonicXtreme because it wasn't something they could use.

The whole Naka threw a tantrum and killed SonicXtreme story is just another lie from former Sega of America and STI members.

This is only acceptable when playing Wizardry 1-4 on SNES or PS1. The rest of the time it's something far worse than the original game. Console versions of the Might and Magic 2 got the worst treatment. Missing encounters, missing enemies, EZ-mode in-game full maps(the automap is acceptable, the actual map isn't), Disintegrate is even more reliable than the computer versions making the hardest fights much easier, and no more than 255 enemies in any encounter.

What bad GameCube discs are there? Some such as Twin Snakes are prone to label deterioration but these aren’t like PlayStation discs where the label protects the data. You can scratch off a GameCube disc label and still play it. GameCube games are protected by a non data layer on both sides, and no data is contained on the inner rings, so they can also be cracked and still play (as long as they still spin). Nobody has ever been able to give me one example of GameCube disc issues

I also want to preempt anyone giving examples of tiny “holes” being visible on discs when held up to light. If square shaped, these are for copy protection purposes and are intentional to the printing process. Compare a licensed game to an unlicensed disc such as an action replay or freeloader - those don’t have those “holes”

Play a level or two on your phone via MyBoy first. It supports the gyro controls. Fucking with your viewing angle to play the game kinda sucks, and the level design and mechanics aren't all that strong. Neat gimmick, definitely a "want to like" game for me, but it's just not all that fun to play. It actually plays a little better on an emulator that supports a motion controller, so your screen can stay static. I know for a fact this works a 3rd party Switch emu.

I played the Famicom and SFC games and I liked them.

The FC game you need patience though, the AI takes forever to make its turns even with fastforward, and once there are enough units on the screen moving stuff around is quite laggy.

With that said I enjoyed them. A lot of rules are different compared to the GBA ones, for instance you can only use your base to build units, factories you capture in the field are only used for refilling, you can't land units on mountains/forest tiles and it takes two turns to load a unit into a transport vehicule and then move that vehicule; etc but there are also unit types that don't exist in the GBA ones. The SFC game also has (optional) unit exp/level up system.

Also, difficulty is actually better in the FC and SFC games than in Advance Wars (1). Perhaps even AW2. The AI is really bad in AW1. On top of this, there are two difficulty settings in the FC game and in the SFC game generals are more or less good which also works as difficulty settings.

In both games you need to beat the campaign twice, once on each side, to see all the content because the last map(s) are unique to each side. The final two maps in the SFC game were hell, harder than anything else I played in AW1/2/DS

Just give them a try and see if they hook you or not.

Pic related, I thought that blocking the enemie's port so I could control the sea before landing on their island was the best plan.

It took me 112 turns to do just that, and an extra 32 turns to beat the map. Holy shit. All in all it probably wasn't the grandest of plans.

9070112

all in all I would say they are a good experience because the lack of factories in the middle of the field + the fact that units need refilling more often leads to strategy games that require more and better foreplanning. If you don't plan well ahead the punishment will be greater than in AW in which you can make up for it by building what you need to make it up closer to enemy lines. This also results in paying more attention to units health and sacrificing them less, and also lessens the will to just bum-rush with a single unit type (although bum rushing still works to some extent especially with bomber planes in the first game, but you still need to back them up and pay attention to their fuel)

Looney Tunes had plenty of references that no one under the age of 84 would know. I absolutely loved it as a kid because there were multiple layers of comedy and that's why these cartoons are still funny as hell 100 years later.

Use the dpad, analog controls are not the best. Dpad and shoulder buttons to strafe is where its at, with the manual button for crosshairs. The game was built around it, enemies reaction times and actions have been created to rhythmically coexist together with it.
