Great if you have a lot of time to try the stages and bonus stages. I loved it when I was 13 but I don't think I'd appreciate it as much now with all the time and patience you'd have to spend playing it.

One of my favorite games of my childhood.

What area, temple, and creature do you prefer:
Scrabania / Paramonia?
Scrabanian Temple / Paramonian Temple?
Scrabs / Paramites?

>> No.4544484

>>4544385
Paramonia was way more intense (that's the one with the 4 legged creatures right). The follow up before with the temple was done well IMO. The hints from tips and the foreshadowing was intense. It did not disappoint

>> No.4544486

>>4544215
Wow, I played through the entire game not knowing that. Probably for the best.

>> No.4544503

>>4544484
They're both four legged.
Paramonia is the forest, Scrabania the desert IIRC.

>>4544484
Generally, I prefer Paramonia, but I liked Scrabania's soundtrack more.

>>4544503
Yea, Paramites are vaguely inspired by spiders and Scrabs have centaur-like appearance. One thing I loved is that they behave differently - lone Paramites flee unless they are forced into a corner; Scrabs will fight with other Scrabs etc.

What did you think of the remake?
I had fun with it, but would rather replay the original because of the superior atmosphere. They really fucked up New n Tasty with the overuse of bloom.

I'm still salty that I played it before the old school controls patch. The shitty new controls were the biggest thing bothering me.

Haven't played it since the original aged well IMO. If you have half an hour to waste, check Matthewmatosis video on New 'N' Tasty and see how it compares (aesthetically) to the original: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QkhDrngAQZ0

BTW Paramonia just feels more atmospheric and brooding (in a dank chilly moss-smelling way) and Paramites are both adorable (the way they chitter, how they scuttle away from you and act like curious puppies) and terrifying (since they are pseudospiders).

HRdly. It just got a remake and it's getting another "sequel/remake" soon.

Game is a classic of the era. One of my favourite experiences on the ps1

I enjoy his robotic analysis, it's exactly what I want out of gaming videos. As far as it can get from the usual "humorous" review-skit-hybrid delivery that people usually do on youtube

Never liked it. Graphics were impressive but the character design, the atmosphere and even the gameplay left me cold.

I tried to love it, but I really prefer Japanese games.

It's one of my favorite games. The Xbox version deserves more credit. It was a great effort. What the fuck is wrong with people that they didn't enjoy that?

Xbox version? You mean Munch's Oddysee? I enjoyed it, Stranger's Wrath was better though, but that's a completely different kind of game.
