Destrega, a free-roaming 1 on 1 combat game for the PS1.

A friend had it and we used to play it quite a bit. We were both fans of Bushido Blade (I liked the original and he liked the sequel), so we enjoyed what we saw as non-standard take on the fighting genre quite a bit.

Tecmo's Deception is a very special game. You become the evil lord of a demonic castle. You build traps and capture adventurers. You can make magical spells and creatures out of them, build new rooms in the castle etc. Your fiancee, a princess, wanders into it and you can have her around, build her special rooms and shit, unless you fuck up and she dies. I remember having to free all 15 blocks on the memorycard to save, but it was always worth it. Gets kinda repetitive, though, so I beleive I've never managed to actually beat the whole thing.

Hourai Gakuen no Bouken! is one of my favorite SNES RPGs, but I never see it brought up on /vr/ unless I'm the one talking about it. Yeah, the random encounter rate is pretty high, and the game turns into "Press A to win," not that far into it, but that doesn't detract from the game's charms at all.

It's a different kind of RPG. It takes place in modern times. You gain your skills by joining clubs in the school. It's got an irreverent off beat humor to it. The game's been translated, too. There's a patch out there for it, so you don't have to worry about knowing moon. Here's a link for a more in depth description on the game:

I guess if I would compare it to something, it would be Deadly Premonition. It's one of those games where, if you look at each aspect of it individually, it would be considered mediocre to poor, but somehow, when everything comes together, something magical happens, and you get a fantastic game that you can't put down and becomes a classic.

Violinist of Hameln is another game that never gets mentioned around here, but really should a lot more. It's based off an anime or manga, I dunno, but that's neither here nor there. It from Enix, and it's one of their non RPG efforts. It's a platformer actually. If the game, you play as the titular Violinist. Armed with only your trusty violin, you're out to help a town liberate a town from repeated ogre attacks. Your music can lull them into submission. You're not alone in your quest, though. You've got your trusty sidekick, Flute, to help you along the way. You issue her basic commands like "come" and "stay", and she serves several purposes. For one, she can help you reach higher up platforms. Her more important purpose, though, is her ability to transform. Along the way, you find various costumes for her to put on, and you use these to navigate the treacherous environment.. Whether making her turn into a frog to jump higher, or an ostrich that can walk over spikes, or even a robot to knock down walls that are in your way, Flute has a costume for everything. The controls are tight, so you'll never be fighting against them. The soundtrack also deserves a mention, as a lot of the tunes are reworked classical songs, and they all sound great. There's a translation patch available, so you don't need to worry about knowing moon, too. Check this one out. You might find it scratches an itch you didn't even know you had.

I feel like I'm the same boat with ADOM. I always see DCSS, Nethack, IVAN, hell, even Dungeons of fucking Dredmor talked about, but never ADOM, which in my opinion, is the King of Roguelikes. Hell, the game even finally started getting updated again. It now has music, sounds, new races and classes, and even graphics. Not a tileset, actual graphics! I've been tempted to attempt an ADOM general on /vr/ and seeing if it goes anywhere.

I loved this game so much. Loved it even more when I found out there was a code that turned the fighters into characters from Romance of the 3 Kingdoms. Who knows? Maybe that's where the idea for Dynasty Warriors even came from? Many forget that the original DW title was a fighting game.

My problem starting a Rogue thread is that it's one of those games that I was completely obsessed with when I was like 10, but now haven't played in decades so I don't even know what I'd say about it at this point.

>>2214397
Roguelike general is similarly useless because the roguelikes in recent years I've put a lot of time into like Powder or Shiren aren't things the people that go there seem to play. Of course if I get to playing something new, like finally delving into ADOM then I wouldn't want to go there for fear of being spoiled anyways. I get my roguelike discussion fix from Roguelike Radio which does a good job.

But now sounds like a great time to finally get into ADOM.

>> No.2214435

Be sure to get the latest build. The recent updates fix a lot of the bugs that were in the game for years. It's weird. Part of me got so used to them, that it seems like part of the game is now gone, but at the same time I realize it's for the better. I've even gotten used to the graphics and sounds now.

Be fair warned, ADOM is massive and unforgiving, even for a Roguelike. If you find yourself needing help or some direction, look up Andy's ADOM Guidebook. It's outdated now, as he stopped work on it well before the game started updating again, but you'll never find a more complete source of ADOM information.

Good luck and have fun, anon. I've been enthralled by ADOM for over a decade now, and never grown tired of it. Only managed to beat it 3 times, too.

I used to do the nastiest shit in Shifter. I'd play the arbiter class most of the time, hide a teleport beacon somewhere in their base. Often behind a generator or something like that, it would often go a whole game without them finding it and I would just be in their base all the time, wrecking shit constantly.

A favorite thing to do was to cloak and then run into the flag room shooting and teleport away almost instantly. Inevitably they would all start shooting wildly and end up team killing each other.

The other thing I would do... holy shit I was such a prick. I'd get a deployable air base right at the start of the game and then just run off into the hills. At first I would set it up a little ways off, but once it got figured out I started going all the way to the edge of the map. Depending on the map when you got to the edge you would either drop down or float up once you stepped off. Either way, I would do that and then set up my base far below or far above the actual map.

Once done I would set up a portable missile launcher, the ones where you could control the missile after firing it. Then I would do only that, bombarding the enemy base over and over and over with nuke missiles. It was such a shitty thing to do, but I loved it.

Even as a little kid, when the mission of the game was, "FIND YOUR DAD," I had a feeling he was going to be the final boss. Also, at first I thought it was going to end quickly, then was surprised at it's length, but then it actually did end shortly afterwards.

Still a great game though. Like a weird robot marble battle.

I used to do that cloak telephone shit Ann the time. Top keks.

In any version of OG tribes I used to fly across them map in a scout and then fly it straight into the enemy team's hanger and jump out right as I entered (bottom left of the base there for people who don't know). It acted like a freaking missile against any players or vehicles coming out of the hanger, and would usually clog theit vehicle pad if it flew all the way in.

High five my brother. God damn it was so much fun to upset people in that game. Story time!

There was a clan back then called Fox Pack than played on shifter a lot and one of their guys named Madd Dogg team killed me to get to an invo station at the start of a match. It was no big deal, but most of Fox Pack were dicks and I held a bit of a quite grudge.

This was back when I was doing all sorts of nasty shit like teleport cloaking, missiles etc so my score was usually the highest in the game and sometimes higher than the whole enemy team. So eventually the Fox Pack leader started asking me to join. Really, I had no desire at all to join a clan but I told him the reason was because Madd Dogg tk'd me. So he asked if he kicked him if I would join and I said maybe. But when he went and did it, I still didn't join.

So some months later some guy comes into a server I'm on and he's swearing like crazy, team killing everyone, blowing up his own base's shit and generally acting like a crazy dick. Everyone tells him to fuck off, he gets booted after like two minutes and I ask what the hell that was all about. And someone says, "ohh that guy used to be Madd Dogg Fox Pack till he got booted and now he just goes around acting like a dick"

One of the best moments of my life.

One of my favorites. I got hooked on it on my cousin's Coleco. I had the board game as well, and the first cabinet I ever purchased for myself was Super Zaxxon.

>>2216332

I'm trying to remember. Gotta bear with me, as I haven't played the thing in nearly 30 years. I know you were able to adjust the height of your ship playing piece, much like in the arcade game itself. IIRC, the board had 3 "tracks" if you will. The ones on the left and right stared at the bottom of the board, and then came together at the top to go back down in one combined center track. You'd have to place obstacles on the board like enemies and fuel tanks. I don't quite remember the rules, but that's at least how it was set up. I found an image via Google so you can get the basic idea.

Speaking of board game versions of video games, I also had the Pac-Man board game as well. Any other video games have board game adaptations?

Man, fucking Zaxxon gets mentioned. This is why I love /vr/ so much.

It's essentially a Zelda game with Bond substituted for Link, the graphics are nothing to write home about but I played the shit out of this when I was younger.

Awesome. It always feels good to cause ripples like that in an MP community, be it good or bad.

Forgot to mention before that my story >>2214954 was on pic related but you seemed to get it.

Another story I have on that same map was when I was flying a scout over the base and jumped out planning to land on top of the base (near the higher level entrance). Suddenly I was surrounded by a few enemy players all looking around like nothing was going on. Took me a moment to realise that I had landed in the seat of an enemy HPC that was flying toward our base so I jumped out and killed the pilot.

Good times.

The game is based off the Violinist of Hameln manga.

It's an amusing comedic fantasy adventure story. Hamel, the titular violinist, is a greedy selfish asshole that uses his violin to control Flute and other people by playing classical music, making her do all the work on their quest to theoretically save the world.

Protip: Every time he (and you as the player of the game) use the violin to control Flute, you are permanently shortening her lifespan.

The anime is darker and more serious in tone, with Hamel being an angsty tormented hero type, rather than an asshole. It's fairly stereotypical 90s fantasy adventure anime with classical music themes.

It's a great game. I played it before the translation patch was out due to being a fan of the source material.

Legend of Xanadu for the PC Engine. Along with Ys V on SFC this is one of Falcom's earliest console only games.

It plays a lot like early Ys titles with the "bumpercar" combat in an overhead perspective, but also includes really nice sidescrolling levels at the end of each chapter which feel a lot like Ys III. This game is absurdly long and quite difficult, definitely one of the hardest on the system. It culminates with a massive 32-floor labyrinth, a tower filled with puzzles and traps which takes hours to complete.

Unfortunately, this is one of those games which might never see a translation due to RAM issues. This game is unique in that it loads from the disc only once to load an entire multiple-hour long chapter and only fits barely in the available RAM. Changing that to English which would mean over 2x the amount of text it simply won't fit.

There's also the sequel, the much shorter and easier Legend of Xanadu II.

This game plays about the same, but has a color palette which makes it look a lot like late-era SNES RPGs. The sidescrolling sections are now only used for the boss battles.

This game is a lot easier to translate as it loads from the disc more often. If I recall correctly a project is underway but stalling as usual.

How about Cyber Knight for the SNES? It was a pretty fun jrpg, never translated officially, but there is a patch for the english version of the game.

Basically, your team wakes up in a space ship on the other side of the universe and wants to get home. To do that, you need to travel through various space systems, land on planets and go out in mechs to explore ruins and collect ancient technology that lets you upgrade your mechs with new weapons and to find ways to get back home while fighting off an alien invasion of robotic creatures.
