Wow, The Wand of Gamelon had some good music.


>> No.5304741

Yes, both of these games have unironically good music, though very unfitting. Some of the painted backgrounds are good looking, too.

>> No.5305095

I was listening to the Faces Of Evil soundtrack at work the other day (I work at a record store) and it sounded like the composer borrowed some riffs from Depeche Mode, Kraftwerk, and Siouxsie & The Banshees.

Somewhat related question: Why does Tim get literally all the attention even though his brother Geoff was just as prolific, and indeed co-composed with Tim for a couple dozen games?

Hell Yeah Plok

>> No.5308490

This settles is. I'm gonna start a Tim vs Geoff thread sometime soon. I need to start my research.

It's not exactly bad, but it's not exactly great either. The controls can be inflexible which causes some artificial difficulty, especially near the end of the game. But there's still fun to be had, and as we've established the music is kickin',. so I rate the game as a slightly above average 6/10. So why is it considered bad? Because all games are seen as bad if they aren't 8/10 or better.

>> No.5308945

The main criticism I hear of Chrono Cross is for its story so I think it's more one of those games that's subjectively viewed as bad. Some people especially don't like that it essentially renders everything that happened in Chrono Trigger worthless, which is a fair criticism considering I hated that in Star Wars.

desu if I had owned a the game in 1993, the cutscenes would have blown my mind. An action adventure game where hand-animated cutscenes were integrated into the gameplay? Who else was doing that?


The two creators of Plok have a Discord. They're doing a puzzle game spinoff of Plok and use it to post progress.

Since this is the music thread, does anyone know where does the music from this video at 9:30 comes from?

That's music from Undertale. Not a joke.

Thanks for confirming it. I figured it was from some Genesis/Saturn JRPG

Understandable, Toby made a point of making the music sound pretty retro. I do recommend playing Undertale though, the entire soundtrack is fantastic. Also I'm kind of curious why someone from /vr/ is watching a video called "Funny Tik Tok Ironic Memes Compilation"

I was watching James' videos on Action 52 and Cheetahmen earlier today, and I have to say, the Genesis version of Action 52 really does not even look that bad. Don't get me wrong, not amazing or anything, but I am genuinely surprised that after making the complete pile of garbage that was the NES version, they not only somehow made another one but actually improved upon it a little bit. I'd like to learn more about the history behind the development of the Genesis version.

I don't know if I'd necessarily call this a bad game, just one of the worst Sonic games ever made. I have no idea why they thought making it was a good idea. Just goes to show you that even in the old days Sega was making stupid decisions with Sonic.
