Come on, /vr/, let's discuss the beta versions of retro games

This is from the 2D version of Simon the sorcerer 3D, that was scrapped and thrown away.

Maybe it was for the best.

Never forgive, never forget.

They should have restarted development on the Gamecube.. Or released the 2D version as a console title

This reminds me that I still have to try that Toejam & Earl 3 beta they released months ago.

>> No.1577710

I wish it wasn't scrapped

N64 REALLY needed RPGs at the time, it only had quest 64, hybrid heaven (that were pretty shitty compared to what the PSX had) and paper mario (that was a late release)

At least the GBC had some decent RPGs.

Ogre Battle 64 faget

Oh, yeah.
It wasn't released in europe, so I always forget.

Started out as an RTS incidentally.
Videos here. Time to go way back.


Machetes, third person gaming, multiplayer oriented, with about two dozen weapons, that all became sequel fodder.

Holy shit I never saw this screen before.

I have about 17 of these beta info stuff on OoT but they get posted sort of frequently.. I'll post more if people are interested.

>> No.1577792


The Halo shots are from before 2000.

I don't see you getting angry at the guy who posted the Mother 3 N64 screenshots. I swear this board has the most annoying backseat moderators.

>> No.1577805

Too bad, the OP says beta versions of RETRO GAMES. This board is about RETRO GAMES. Just because Duke Nukem Forever was in development since 1997 doesn't mean it belongs here.

>> No.1577807

>backseat moderators
Think of it more like people who care about the quality of the board and want to encourage others to maintain it through their posting etiquette.

>> No.1577820

>Just because Duke Nukem Forever

The footage of DKF that's from the 90s is fine here. The finished game we got a few years ago is not.

>Think of it more like people who care about the quality of the board and want to encourage others to maintain it through their posting etiquette.

If you want to improve the quality of this board, do some research before posting.

>> No.1577827

Research indicates... The Halo is not a retro game. I'm sorry anon, take your cancer back to /v/.

>> No.1577836

Research indicates you're not actually reading posts.

Still don't see you complaining about the Mother 3 N64 post.

>> No.1577839

You shitposters always pull this shit. Just because I haven't spotted an earlier shitpost doesn't make yours any more acceptable.

>talking about beta versions of games made 1999

Yeah, I'm done responding to your stupid ass.

>> No.1577849

You're the one throwing a shitfit over exact wording. If it existed before 1999, it's retro. End of story.

>> No.1577856

>If it existed before 1999, it's retro. End of story.
Nope. This opens up way too many non-retro games to discussion that don't belong here.

>> No.1577864

Mother 3 for the N64 was a canceled game, not a beta of anything.

>> No.1577867

Discuss versions of a game that existed before the cutoff date is what I meant.

>> No.1577871

The problem is people are inevitably going to discuss the finished game as well and that's just a slippery slope we don't need.

With so much drama in the gaming of PC,
it's kinda hard talkin' bout oldschool Halo CE

lol, so you shit up a conversation based on something that hasn't happened, but that you THINK is going to happen

Those rhymes you're trying to kick are quite bootylicious.

The only ones shitting the thread up are the off-topic, non-retro shitposters.

I don't see how that's a problem in a beta thread.

Just ignore him from here on out. He's already gotten the attention he so desperately desired.

>> No.1577917

Nobody cares except you, so really that's not the case.

>> No.1577931

In case you can't read the OP, it's a "beta versions of retro games" thread. Not a beta version for anything that was in development before 1999. Games released after 1999 are not retro games and thus their beta versions do not belong in here. Or in /vr/ in general.

>> No.1577996

I don't see the problem with discussing non retro games in a thread when it cones up. Hard to talk about the FF series without mentioning the future releases. Why pretend a retro game didb't have sequels?

Now STARTING a thread about non retro sequels would be a missuse of the board

Light Crusader had some items that didn't make it into the final product. Can be accessed through debug mode.

Boots let you jump super high.
Empty bottle can be filled up in water, giving you a bottle of water. Fairly useless, because water just cures poison, which is rare.
Blue crystal, don't know.
Black crystal is a portable save point, destroys itself once used.
Satchel, don't know.
There are also graphics for Rings which are never used.

There is also some armor, Dillo, that I think can only be accessed through hacking. I've never gotten it. Not sure if it's stronger or weaker than Gold Armor.

>> No.1578068

Woops, I say
>graphics for Rings which are never used
And there they appear in the screenshot. Disregard that. Don't know what the rings do, if anything.

>> No.1578517

Can you post them? I've not seen them before.

>> No.1578567

It really depends. "The thing in development in 1998" is quite different from the final DNF from 2011 or whenever. Unless you can provide exactly what was and wasn't carried over.

So many decent ideas completely and utterly ruined and terrible.

I remember being in the Starmen.net IRC when the N64 version got definitively cancelled and there wasn't even an inking of hope yet that it would make it to the GBA.

I think that was 2001 that the N64 version got canned? Or late-2000, I don't remember. Starmen.net had already switched over from its old earthbound.net name though.

There's a lot of speculation that Fado was the Wind Sage at one point, not Saria. If so it would have been interesting to see how Saria's role collided with Fado

Yeah, just think about it, it could have been a generic everyday shooter like every other that no one would remember in one year and all we got was a highly memorable franchise with amazing characters that would become the face of PC gaming for at least half a decade and still gets new content today.
