Are you joking? I thought you meant the first level boss.How are you already shorting in the second room of the game?

>> No.5208381

Ok. Since it looks like you didn't read the manual, let me explain this.
Galerians is a survival game. Meaning, you have a limited inventory, and you must use your powers sparingly. When you use your powers, even for investigation, that bar goes up faster than normal. When the bar is full, if you press R1 again, you'll "short out". This makes you sorta invincible, but you're also out of control and losing health fast. So what you have to do is:
- take Delmetor empty the bar
- fill the bar up, but only short out when there's a lot of enemies in the room that you want to kill, THEN use a Delmetor

The problem with there isn't really a lot of Delmetor in the game, and you must search everything (files, cabinets, etc) to find more. And even then, you'll never have enough.

Now, what you have to do. Just run away from everything. Killing things is a hassle in this game, so just try to dodge everything. They're not like Resident Evil zombies that grab you when you pass them by. The enemies with guns can be a little harder, but just bear with it for a while. Search everything. Because your inventory is limited, only keep 1 of each capsule to refill power. Fill the rest up with Delmetor and that medicine that refills HP.


And if you thought shorting out was an auto-win button... sorry, but it isn't. You can defeat the first boss with it, but the rest are immune.

>Does everyone in America play at least a Metroidvania game back in childhood and like it?

Metroid games were probably played by at least 2 million people each in the 80s and 90s. They were big hits, but nowhere near as big as a number of other games. They WERE well regarded though. Symphony of the Night also did decent sales and had a strong reputation.

>Why do you think there are so many indie titles that are Metroidvania-style or paying homages to the Metroid and Castlevania series?

Even though the games were like 2nd tier sales-wise, they seem to have made a BIG impression on one type of people in particular: NERDS THAT LIKE EASY GAMES. And if there's one thing that's consistent among game developers it's that most of them are nerds that like easy games. So I think by coincidence they were games that an extremely disproportionate percentage of game developers played when they were kids (or that they played in emulation as adults, since the games are easier for people that suck at video games to get into compared to most other older games).

>> No.5208386

Another thing is that it's a FORMULA. And most developers have no talent or creativity, so it's easier for them to make a game if they can just copy a formula.

As I've mentioned before, home computer games of the period like C64, Spectrum, Amiga, etc tended to be poorer quality and more amateurish overall than console titles simply because anyone could develop for them and there were no rules or quality standards.

>4 discs of epic story
the game is actually rather short
>Full 3D active battles where you can tactically move on the field
battles suffered from being pseudo realtime, waiting for gauges to fill up isn't all that fun
>every NPC is voiced
but the game is sorely lacking memorable NPCs and dialogue
>non grindy gameplay and levelling
I'll give you this much, but at the end of the day it was a JRPG with fewer random battles and polygons, but still a JRPG with all the clichés that entails
>fully realised lore with an in game encyclopedia
the game has cool art but it was basically Nausicaa, there wasn't really all that much to it

I'm playing devils advocate to some extent, because PDS was an exceptionally ambitious and innovative RPG, but the experience of playing it doesn't really live up to the mystique around it. There aren't really that many places to go or things to do in the game, you're barred from visiting the imperial city, only a few settlements comprised of a few huts, you can walk round in full 3D but it's about as worthwhile as walking round in NiGHTS.

I'd sooner Sega spent the money they wasted on Shenmue (and don't lie to yourself, Shenmue was a colossal waste of money) to bring a better Panzer Dragoon Saga to the dreamcast, rather than deliver a gimped tech demo to the Saturn.

>> No.5208453

Coming to bat for OP, I think a lot of what you've brought up are actually points to both its quality and lack of broad appeal. I don't really like JRPGs, but if more of them were lean and had a more involved battle system like this one, I'd play a lot more. I'd outright disagree about no interesting NPCs or lore, at least compared to its contemporaries, and as such that it's still stuck with all of the typical JRPG qualities.

This of course also explains why it was left to twist in the wind: if you design a game to be everything that the most popular ones of its kind are not, it's obviously not going to be popular. It's legacy today has more to do with trying to sell a 3D Saturn title in a genre hailed for its aesthetics to anyone who didn't grow up in that era.

I agree with most of this but
>>non grindy gameplay and levelling
>I'll give you this much, but at the end of the day it was a JRPG with fewer random battles and polygons
I definitely felt like there were way too many random battles and they were no fun to play because I knew exactly how to win in seconds yet each one took some time to complete.

>> No.5209153

The limited variety of enemy formations does wear down on you, but at least there were moments where the game knew not to bombard you with random encounters.
I think the battle system is still the most enjoyable part of the game despite this, even though it can be trivialized in most cases just by sticking to the Power/Agility form.
I loved how Orta integrated it into its own boss fights.

This degenerate DOS Rom is more trouble than it's worth.
First off, it doesn't run in Windows 10. Why one Windows it works but not the other? This is another example of planned redundancy to force you to upgrade.
I solve this problem (after wasting 3 evenings on it) by opening the Rom's properties and setting it to Windows 95 compatibility. It's smooth sailing until I get to a part demand a word from a page in some book. Now, I ain't interested in no fancy book learning, so I find some book somewhere and type the word.
It works now, but I have to use the keyboard for everything in this game. My finger don't do nothing. It's made for dames, and I don't dig no games in the computer. they doesn'r mix.
