I have been playing the D&D games a lot recently, they are both quite fun. Tower of Doom is very solid and challenging, it's the perfect balance between melee combat and RPG elements. Shadow over Mystara has more content and variety but is kinda broken. Still, it's quite enjoyable.

It's a bit annoying at first, but eventually you get used to it.

Playing with Magic User in Shadow over Mystara is definitely a bit boring though, too many interruptions, it feels more like an action RPG than a beat 'em up.

>Favorite games?
The Punisher, Violent Storm and Night Slashers
>Whatcha been playing recently?
Double Dragon II on the PC Engine. Plays kinda like a mix between the Arcade and NES versions, but nowhere near as good or polished as either of them. The character designs are very weird compared to the proper Technos version. Worth playing mostly due to the cheesy anime-style cutscenes. Better than that crappy XBLA version from a few years ago.

Probably the original Streets of Rage, with the arcade version of Double Dragon II coming a close second.

>and some bosses are too cheeseable
every single final fight boss can be used an infinite. why is it god tier then?

there's a reason why on Arclive/suparc, cadillacs is the most played beatem up at all times.. because among ppl who played these game for decades, cadillacs is the most favorite and respected. be honest u started play only 2 year ago

why must things be added? Why not take the game on its own?

>> No.2866741

>every single final fight boss can be used an infinite. why is it god tier then?
Because it did much more for the genre than Cadillacs and Dinosaurs did. Also, combat with regular enemies is more interesting in Final Fight, the enemy design in Cadillacs is kinda lame except for a couple of them.

>why must things be added? Why not take the game on its own?
Because it's important to add new elements, Warriors of Fate did what Cadillacs did 1 year earlier, except with better combat, better AI and better bosses.

The reason of why Cadillacs is so played is because it's the easiest to get into, i also played it a lot when i got into the genre along with SoR2.

Look at the game on its own. Stop acting like everything has to be next step in evolution. You are viewing game from a post-20 year view. Back when Cadillacs came out it was God Tier, it is still God Tier.

Cadillacs is different STYLE from Final Fight and Warrior of Fate. Final Fight is slow style. Warrior of Fate is slow style. Tower Doom is slow style.

Cadillacs is FAST style. Punisher is FAST style. Shadow mystara is FAST style. Understand?

You obviously prefer SLOW style. Some people prefer Fast style.

You say Cadillacs Dinosaurs is not God Tier. But hundred EXPERT arcade gamer on suparc/arclive say Cadillacs is best beatem up ever made.

>> No.2866768

>Cadillacs is FAST style. Punisher is FAST style. Shadow mystara is FAST style. Understand?
Final Fight can be finished faster than all of them (except for maybe Shadow over Mystara which is fucking broken)

Punisher is good but it lacks character variety to be God Tier, and just like AvP, it has many gimmicky shooting sections that lose the focus on melee combat.

Shadow over Mystara is broken as hell, it's a fun game, but in terms of overall balance Tower of Doom is definitely more polished and requires a bit more strategy than just spamming LBOs and 3 hit + Lightning bolts. The standard combat is a joke as well even compared to any of the games i said.

And Cadillacs, again, it's kinda Final Fight with running, but i felt the enemy design was significantly downgraded (bosses are equally cheeseable).

I'm not that big into fightans dear chinese guy, but i'm decent at Vampire Hunter if you are interested.

>> No.2866785

I'm talking about game style. Not length of game. Cadillacs is rushdown game. Speed and BTFO enemies quickly is the point. Also, so many weapons and guns. Beautiful. Final Fight is more on careful decisions gameplay. Both are good. Not one is better than the another. Apples and Oranges. Both are god tier.

You are like Street Fighter gamer. You like Final Fight, Warrior Fate, Tower Doom.

Me? I like KOF games. Fast paced, rushdown, offensive. That is why Cadillacs so loved in countries that KOF > SF. Asia, South America, etc.

Punisher is not god tier, very good but not god tier. Shadow Mystara is not god tier, very fun game, but game is too messy and easy even on Level 8.

Cadillacs yes, it is god tier. It is complete package. Timeless game. Loved throughout the world.

I agree with your list. Except for Cadillacs. Have a happy gaming. My last post for today.

>> No.2866795

Kinda agree on your first point, but Final Fight isn't as slow-paced as you make it sound, you can just scroll if you want and have 10 enemies on screen any time given time, and having a screen filled with Poison, Gados and Andores is certainly more menacing and fast-paced than most stuff in Cadillacs.

>> No.2867156

it's this >>2863752

and it also has its own story mode, alternate modes, AI teammates, color pallets/sprites, unlocks, guns, custom weapons, etc.

It also combines all 3 games into one as if all 3 games were different area's of the city. I personally love how it adds custom pathways in levels, like SoR2 stage 1, you can go to an alternate route after dealing with a sniper that involves a building burning, followed by a roof top level. Think Starfox in how you can go to any planet you want and no matter which one u go to after "6 levels" its Andross time. Gives it tons of replay value.

Undercover Cops stylistically. I just like the rawness of it and digging up fucking steel girders to beat your opponents to death with. It also has that Irem visual grit that I really like which left the company with Nazca.

Wizard is on Shadow over Mystara. Anyway, first of all you should use Project Image with all bosses, now some specific strategies:

Tel arin: 9 knives + LBOs, if he is still alive cast some magic, magic missile maybe.

Exhorder: First, be sure to pick Staff of Wizardry in the room before. As for the boss, stay away from this fucker and spam lightning bolts (spells and rings if you have), then cast other spells, Ice Storm, Conjure elemental etc.

Spiral stair: Mainly cast some area magic here when the screen is filled with enemies, like Reverse Gravity.

Dungeons: Magic missile the gargoyles for more spells.

Dark Force 2: This nigga is a joke considering how the amount of magic you have at that point. Anyway same as Tel'Arin, 9x knives + combo + LBOs, if he is still alive cast some magic, Reverse gravity do tons of damage to him. Meteor Swarm is also deadly, but it's bugged with the Staff of Wizardry and do little damage, so you should swap to your standard Staff if you want to cast that.

Nagpa: just spam magic, you gain a level here.

Synn: Project image, wait for her meteor attack, when she comes down just LBO the bitch. After that just cast magic, mainly Ice Storm.

>> No.2870908

he's talking about the last boss of tower doom.

>> No.2870925

What i do is bait him to my line, i never directly attack him on his line. So when he comes to your line do a rush and combine it with run+attack or run+jump attack, after that go away from him. That's pretty much my basic offensive, if you have some spells use it with the undead guys and his Protect Image. If you are playing Elf, Ice Storm is the only magic that hurts him.

As for defense, be extremely aware of the magic attacks. He will cast lightning bolts if he is in your line far away. For fireballs, just evade them with run+jump. Meteorn swarm: run to the end of the screen in the oppossite direction from where they come. Fire circle thingy: just try to not stay near him too much time, when you attack him then run away.
