DC has better graphics, sound, and pacing which leads to more enjoyability. On N64 you have to farm fruits to power up your bomb and your starting mech's power sucks and doesn't carry over to each level, so you have to use an in-game shop to keep upgrading it. DC version replaces the fruit bomb with proximity bomb, so you get more energy back based on how closely you use your bomb to bullets and enemies, and does away with the shop system completely. Also DC is the only one in English if you care about dialog/plot. Some people say N64 has a better controller for it, but I don't mind how it works on DC; the stick controls your 8-way gunfire, while the face buttons control your mech movement. Anyway, just play both and come to your own conclusions.

Romancing Saga 2 has barely any empire building or base management. You can fund like 4 buildings and some weapons armor and magic. It’s not in depth or anywhere close to the customization you would see in a PC game.

With that said RS2 is a phenomenal game that you should play as soon as possible. It’s basically what a SNES era JRPG would look like through the lens of a CRPG.

>> No.5390018

>>5389878
>>5389474
The empire building part is just about funding specific constructions and building new arms as you grind for more revenue by killing the shit out of every monster encounter you're in.

The fun part about being the emperor is the quests. Each few times you complete a quest, you get to skip a generation or two to see your empire and anything you're previously involved in develop, for better or worse. And you can influence these quests in different ways, and see the results you would never really expect. sometimes it also means your empire has expanded to that area as well.

It's kinda Kawazu's way of making an Ultima game without bearing the Ultima name and putting a slice of squaresoft in it.

Guys, sorry to bother, but could you please elucidate me on this arcade game I once played as a child?
It was a pretty wild bike racing game. There was the usual bike men dressed in bike racing outfits, but then you could choose and old timey fellow with those old big wheels bycicle, a band(?) of elvis impersonators, a recently married couple with a sidecar and a bunch of cans tied to it. I think the graphics were mostly 2D sprites instead of polygons, but I could be wrong on that.
I was able to find the name of most of the arcade games I used to play as a kid but I can't find that one at all.

In Super Mario USA, the sky color should be the blue seen on the US flag, in honor of the game's release in the USA. The sky in the original Doki Doki Panic, should be the color of the sky in SMB2 (Japanese), given the game's self-aware nature of being a Japanese exclusive *version* (again, Japan exclusive like the then Japan-exclusive SMB2 FDS release) of the game which would be later released under the name Super Mario Bros. 2 in the USA.

A purplish blue, same as SMB was intended, according to the artist himself. Anyone else is trolling or ill-informed. This color palette was specifically chosen to be displayed on CRT screens due to how they represent colors.

American studios developed the first big box computer games, actually King's Quest would be the first such game. It took seven months and cost $700,000 to develop. A team of eight people worked on the game. This was in 1983 when games were normally developed by one guy in about two months.

Unreal Tournament isn't even the best Arena FPS. It's basically "we threw a bunch of random content into a box that looked cool" the video game. Which is fine if you're just running around the levels with your brain turned off shooting bots, I guess, but the game design does not hold up under scrutiny. id software's early games had incredible base gameplay that had the unfortunate distinction to often be paired with levels or gametypes that didn't take full advantage of said gameplay.

People made levels and mods for Doom and Quake in order to push the game systems further than the designers intended. People made levels for Unreal Tournament just to make a level that looked cool, maybe even as resume fodder so they could get a job in the game industry.

The original game has a lot of thought put into it especially the SFX, which are all designed to create a claustrophobic feel of being trapped in a cave/mine full of boulders that could flatten you at any moment.

The NES version is just too cute (especially the music) and lacks any sense of tension. I mean, stuff like the GOOD message and Rockford doing a little happy dance when you get to he end of the level. It's just...no.

Very possible. Alucard makes the stages a fucking joke and on his route there is one block that is a pain in the ass to play without him (room with the falling blocks where you have to wait for them to pile up in a way upwards). Basically Alucard makes stages his bitch but bosses are a bit tricky if you aren’t used to his default attack. As for his main bat gimmick, it slowly eats your hearts (quicker in US) But this isn’t a big deal because you’re not using hearts for anything else unless you want to use the shitty stopwatch.

And on NG+ where you can bring any partner with you to the start of the game, it is possible.
