Why doesn’t it have any beat ‘em ups?

Akshully they planned to port Spikeout Final to it but they ran out of time so the project was moved to Xbox.

bmups were pretty much dead at that point (1999) because vs fighters killed them off.

Atomiswave exclusive Knights of Valour the Seven Whatevers is interesting in that it was co-designed by the japanese and chinese teams. Apparently the Japanese audiences didn't like inventory, item, spells and rpg elements too much so they completely removed that.
And then the same board had Demolish Fist which was ok I guess.

You can run this piece of obsolete chink trash on Demul

Question, does Spawn in the Demon's Hand count as a belt'em up? It's more of an Arena fighter but there are belt scroller elements.

The reality is that by that point public reception was already cold and indifferent. Even though I love these 3D walking beating scrollers it still felt like I had been there, done that, seen it before on playstation.

Does Canon Spike count as beam' up or a shooty shooty?

>> No.6006110

Not sure if it counts but the "Beats of Rage" homebrew series seemed to get a lot of attention, they were always releasing something new or doing some feature, I hadn't any interest in it.

>> No.6006115


>> No.6006181

It has a ton of them though.

>> No.6006191

Because it's impossible to get mad enough for a beat 'em up when you're playing such a smooth and aesthetically pleasing system.

I know there's still a lot of people making tons of Beats of Rage fangames for Dreamcast.

Sega was too lazy to make streets of rage 4 they invested too much time,money and manpower on sports games with their 2k division instead of letting EA make the sports games

>> No.6007613

I don't know why but I really hate this game for some reason. I wrote a review of it when I was like 13 and shat on the game pretty bad.

Like for whatever reason DHA is fun but whatever element was there, Dynamite Cop shit the bed.

I think I need to play it again. I feel like I'm letting biases of a snotty child interfere with a fair judgment of it.

>> No.6007621

EA sports games are slow ass simulators where half the strat options don't do anything.
Sega games are tight, lightning fast Arcades.

What's wrong with shmups?

>> No.6007662

greatest beat em up ever made(also on arcade)

>> No.6007678

Sega sports sucked this is something Sega of America knew.

It's why the original CEO of Sega of America gave EA low Publis price for their sports games he knew Sega would waste too much time on sports games which they did eventually.

Beat em ups
>Dynamite Cop
>Zombie Revenge
>Best version of Jedi Power Battles
>Sword of the Berserk
>Soul Fighter
Not really beat em ups but kinda
>Gaunlet Legends
>Cannon Spike

It has a fair share of them considering the system short lifespan and the decadence of the genre. Ands a few of them are actually pretty fun.

>> No.6008638

About one meter, give or take 25cm.

>> No.6008728

So you ignore the non-traditional beat-em-ups already mentioned ITT but list Gauntlet of all things as one.

>> No.6010902

Beats of rage and the other games like cannon spike were fine for me. I didn't see too many lacking beatemup options for the dreamcast.

>> No.6010928

No its because theyre jews. Sega sport games are better every step of the way just like how PES and International Superstar Soccer are better than any FIFA game

This but unironically.

>> No.6011303

It doesn't matter if the 2k sports games and other Sega sports games were better then E A.'s they were not profitable.

And a waste of money time and programming and design talent.

>> No.6012616

As others have already stated, there was Zombie Revenge and Dynamite Cop, two fucking amazing beat em ups. Then there's Slashout and Spikeout on Naomi which unfortunately never got homeports, no fucking idea why also shenmue

I always considered it a bmup n shup. Great game in general.

Oh yeah, always forget about Berserk. Unironically love that game.

>> No.6012945

How is it a waste when people more likely to play them and revisit them over the boring crappy EA Sports shit?

>> No.6013005

DC was much more than that. You're thinking of the Saturn.
