Original Doom 64 is the dimmest (even with the brightness maxed out), followed by EX, followed by the re-release, if memory serves. Of course it doesn't help that I've only ever played the N64 cart on a CRT (which is the "Doomiest" feeling of the three options in my opinion).

Regarding quick dashing, EC Wolf is a source port of Wolf 3D and thus probably doesn't have that (I've never used it). Whatever Doom source port you're using that is compatible with Brutal Doom/Brutal Wolf will probably have it.

Interesting, I didn't know Star Fox 2 was significantly easier. Star Fox and 64 are the only two I've played.

" The fact that Blood's marketing featured Type O Negative makes me love it already. [Link] "
1. I've never seen this trailer, thanks for showing me something new. Quality too high, can't see it through all the pixels. =P
2. "Type O Negative". I see what they did there. Still, the song works well enough in its own right. I wonder if it's on the actual disc; I should check. The trailer says "Featuring this hit song" but that could just be referring to the trailer, not the CD-ROM.
3. The ugly-as-sin cutscenes actually look okay behind all of that artifacting. Go figure.
4. "I hope to start Blood sometime this year!"
Blood was my "Spooktober" entry last year, might be a good time for you too. "Coming Halloween '98"

EVO and Brain Lord are great, too; wasn't able to get into Robotrek or Wonder Project J.

I knew he was popular and wanted to give him a fair shake... and had about a million loads of laundry to do, so it was a good day for it. Some of them were good, but there were a LOT of duds, too.

Not set up; just hanging out under there. Macs only have one plug, because the monitor and CPU are the same unit, so it isn't much to have under there. It has Cosmic Osmo, Cairo Shootout, SimEarth, and Billiards Parlour for sure; not sure what else might be on there. No need to be sorry; I knew what it was and didn't follow the link.

This whole thing would've been impossible with that damn love seat. Next Thursday, I'm going to get a second bulb, and though it's technically for my lady, I'm going to test it out in a lamp first to see if another lamp would be worth getting, but other than that, and maybe a better place for this tray table (I can't really open the drawer with it here), I'm good; I do have a few new elements that I think you'll appreciate, including a pastel drawing that my dad did when I was little. Now that I've given the printer the boot, I can just use the top of the Kallax for the laptop and/or Mac Classic; it'll be even more room if I can find a better home for these atlases I have, which are too damn tall to fit on the shelves. Oh hell no; I couldn't live like that. I think the official one does have the red cable, also, because I can't picture one without it... not that I'm sure what kind of stereo output the NES would really have.

I'll have to check that out at some point; I don't have any other music projects going on at the moment, other than Prophallus's latest list, and I'm hoping to finish that within a few days.

Well, now that you have it, Scenario 3B has 2 extra boss fights that you need at least 20 of those rainbow eggs to reach, and I think what's at the end is one of those; it's been a minute. I didn't miss any keys either time, so I don't remember what was there.

Beats me; I haven't played any of the others in quite some time, but it does have some great quality of life improvements.

Yeah, my brain's just not wired for something like that; I hate being rushed, because I want to explore every little thing, and be as thorough as possible.

Oh, Corpse Party is definitely worth playing; just don't go in expecting horror, because it's really bad at that.

The beetles, themselves, don't bother me too much, just the fact that we have holes large enough for something that size to get through; we REALLY don't need wasps in here, and that's the window where they were nesting when we first moved in. Had enough wasp-related trauma from that window. Did I ever tell you that story? What I tell everyone - usually the aforementioned sunshine junkies while they're pouting at the rain - is that any kind of weather becomes more palatable if you tie it to a beautiful memory that you've had in that kind of weather.

Alcohol was always readily available in the house growing up, any my parents never gave a shit, because most everyone drinks underage, given the chance, and if I got fucked up at home, it meant I wasn't going to be driving like that. As a result, I almost never drank; I wasn't really getting away with much of anything, and beer tastes fucking terrible, so that sure wouldn't have been alluring to me. Anyway, the next morning was Mothers' Day, and I showed up... not quite hung over, but... Okay, so you remember the scene from the Exorcist right after she freaks out and mom's giving her that sponge bath, but she just has that "lights on; nobody home" stare? That was me. The whole family was ripping on me; it was pretty funny.

My mom wanted to go, so she dragged me along, because I speak Spanish; turned out that was a good idea. This was also right before they closed down the big ziggurat, so we were one of the last groups to climb to the top; stairs were hot as fuck, but slippery, too, so coming back down was one hell of an ordeal. Even got myself a nice book about Mayan history there, as well as a cool chess set carved by one of the natives. Got my lady a really cool carved wooden dragon while I was there, too, which we still have on display. Monster of Monsters has one of the best soundtracks, not just because it's good, but how consistently good it is.

They still make CRTs!? That's... odd. Aside from playing Hogan's Alley, what's the reason anyone would want one? ...though if the screen doesn't have the curve, you couldn't do that, anyway.

I didn't finish the demo; I got about 15 minutes into the village and half an hour into the castle... or the other way around. And like I said, it might just be a bad port, but I don't think it's my hardware. I mean IT'S NOT ME BECAUSE I HAVE *LOUDLY POSTS ALL HARDWARE STATS WHILE FLEXING AGGRESSIVELY*

Like picture some girl you know pretending she's Stone Cold Steve Austin or... whoever the suck-it guys were; I haven't watched much WWE: Get the F Out, but I remember them from the turn of the century, because everyone had their t-shirts.

Well, remember when Sony "won" E3 by not doing the whole Big Brother thing? Now, we're finding out that not only did Microsoft lie when they said they were walking it back, Sony was doing it, too, along with some other shit. It really makes you wonder what kind of ticking time bombs exist within every console, and that includes Nintendo; they've been pretty quiet about all this, too. I used to think that a streaming-only console - which, I might add, they wanted to do with this new generation - was going to be the death of video game preservation, but it looks like we have a lot more than just that to worry about.

As well they fucking should; the Zelda timeline is and has always been completely fucking stupid, and Wind Waker together with A Link to the Past can basically invalidate the whole thing. Besides, Zelda games don't have good story; they've never had good story; that's never been the point. What Zelda games do well is lore, and you'll find plenty of that throughout the series. Just look at all the crazy shit they have in the official guide for A Link to the Past; they detail Hylian garb of the time right down the the fucking earrings they wear! That's remarkable attention to detail, but the individual plots of each of the games are generally nothing to care about, and neither are most of the games' characters.

As far as I know, Final Fantasy 5 is the only game that ever discusses The Void. They reuse characters without any real connection to each other throughout the series (aside from Final Fantasy 9), so it's not necessarily even the same Gilgamesh, and as far as I know, Ultimecia doesn't show up anywhere else in the series. Canonically, all of the games are taking place simultaneously across several different universes, so I don't think they're related.

Thank you! It's been a fun time! MediEvil is still my favourite game of all time, it's something that just hasn't been able to be touched for me, tbh. So many memories attached to it. It's nice to hear that someone else loved it as much as I did too.

Seeing you having so much fun with Suikoden II is really making me want to try it; my wife played the first one last year all the way through, whilst I played it to around 3-4 hours in or so and I really enjoyed it! I thought the character art and the music was really nice.

I have a patched version of Doom 64 for the N64 that maxes the brightness automatically on bootup if you want it. There's another patch somewhere, can't remember if it was Romhacking or not, that actually messes with the lighting engine in some way. Maybe it just affects the gamma, but I kept getting visual bugs when trying that version where I could see through the stage geometry and stuff. Still just a hint dark this way but it's playable. I can't remember if there are any other changes to 64 EX or not, I guess mouse look probably makes that the superior version anyway though.

I'm with Prophallus: don't forget the Lennus games; they're unlike anything else I've ever seen or played before.

One day, I binged all of the content he'd posted, loading videos in between rounds of laundry, and I think I laughed exactly one time: it was the review of Congo, and things are all serious and shit; people are getting murdered by hippos, and... the fucking Hungry Hungry Hippos music starts playing. The one you probably know; not the one from the '80s. LOST MY SHIT. Oh, and this: [Link] Of course, that wasn't want of his jokes; that was just a real PSA. Anyway, I do like some of the people who were on his site, like Todd in the Shadows (TitS) and Rap Critic, along with Lindsay Ellis, but her stuff is usually longer than I have time to watch. Spoony was good, too. I've never actually seen a 3DO in the wild, but they did publish those Heroes of Might and Magic games that I sank thousands of hours into back in the day.

I don't remember how I found him, but he's got some neat stuff. Lots of Game Genie, of course, but also a lot of games for old Macs, like the one I have under my table. I should totally include that in my setup pics when everything's finally finished. Definitely going to hang that pastel drawing my dad did a million years ago; that'd look great in the blue light. Anyway, I can't do the ASMR shit; because of the way my PTSD was created, it triggers me. Not badly, but enough that I'll get really pissed off and frustrated in a big hurry; I tried to watch his, but I couldn't make it more than about a minute and a half. The Terminal Montage one was fine, and I think that's because what really sets me off is the soft, slow talking. That led to some awkward moments early on in my relationship with my lady before we figured it out. Like, one time, I spit at her and I'm pretty sure I threw a bottle of water. It was fucked up.

The best part of my setup is that it's in a little corner, so it's nice and cozy. We just have the PS2, PS3, and Wii hooked up to the TV, so it's nice and simple; PS3 goes into the HDMI input, DVD/VCR combo goes into Composite 2, and the 2-way switchbox for PS2/Wii goes into Composite 1. Oh, and the XP machine goes into VGA; we don't really use SVideo. I think we do have another HDMI port on the TV, but we don't have anything to put into it right now. I do also have all kinds of spare parts, if we need to hook up anything else.

I don't think I've heard the new Birthday Massacre. Unless it was that one you linked me, which was just a cover for the theme song of a movie I've never seen. That was okay.

Before you do, let me say this: don't worry about backtracking just yet, if you haven't figured it out. And yes, fuck those stick figure guys. But isn't it great how you can grab an item, already know what it does, and be excited to use it? That's something I feel Creepy Castle does very well.

The writing was SO good! And they fucked it up! Next thing I played was Skyborn, which was made by the same developer, and since it was an earlier title, it wasn't good. I got it for the main character, and I wound up not really liking her at all; the description on the store page made her seem very different. But yeah, LEGO is pretty reliable, and I'm remembering that now. I've unlocked the fish chainsaw for my character creator. Yes, really.

You really don't have to; I don't think most of them even talk. Actually, one of them is a skeleton, so he can't talk; no larynx, you know. Yes, that's an actual plot point.

LOOK AT THE LITTLE BOAT! ❤ I used to have one just like it. Did I have one just like it? I don't remember. Anyway, I love the look of it, but I'd hate the gameplay, and no way in HELL am I hooking up a webcam, even if I did have one that wasn't relegated to my service for the CVS Corporation, I don't like the idea that this thing is watching me. It's bad enough that some games actually monitor what choices you make and share them with a big-ass database. Corpse Party is a good game, but it's terrible at horror. The hard-driving techno music and the fact that you're collecting ID tags from dead students, whose gruesome deaths are described to you with all the lurid details just makes it silly. Like a Halloween hack for Contra or something.

The name sounds familiar, but I think I thought it was the subtitle for one of the myriad Fire Emblem games.

I like sunny days, too, but the fact that 97% of people are obnoxious sunshine junkies often ruins it for me. Certain ways the light hits on a late Spring afternoon, a hot Spring morning, or even at sunset or sunrise can be absolutely gorgeous. I'd love if this window were a bit more airtight, especially in the Summer, so the heat from my PC could just blow outside without those big-ass beetles crawling inside. Of course, we have carnivorous plants now, so maybe that doesn't matter as much...

Charlie? I haven't seen him in years; last time was at his wedding. That was a really interesting night, too. I ran into his friend, Jason, on the way out, and the last time I'd seen Jason was when we were all teenagers, getting shitfaced on Charlie's back porch for his 18th birthday. Crass, backward hicks, all of us, but he's surprisingly deep and intelligent; while about as drunk as I've ever gotten, he and I fired philosophy back and forth to each other while everyone else... I don't know what the hell they were doing, but they were barely conscious; I have NO fucking idea how Rufio made it home alive that night. Anyway, we stood out under the light of that old tavern and shot the shit, exchanged philosophy again; it was a cool event that I'd never expected to happen.

Tombs & Treasure is especially neat, because it takes place somewhere I've actually been; I've seen all of those places... though they don't have any weird monsters or anything. It's definitely a guide dammit game, but very enjoyable with one, I'd say; the music is vaguely reminiscent of Godzilla: Monster of Monsters, too, and I think they have the same composer. I'm not sure I know what a Trinitron is.

Oh, this hack. Yes, I LOVE the run animation; I can't wait to play it someday.

She'll have to figure that out if she ever gets her own PC and Steam account; I'm not that worried about it. I didn't get quite that far in 8, though I don't know if you can with the demo. I don't know if it's the demo or just a really shitty PC port or what, but the thing didn't run worth shit on my machine. The parts I did play were more like a bare-bones Adventure game, like a very graphically impressive Babby's First Unity Project. I just don't think I'm ever going to like the series.

No, more like being able to unlock classic Dante in Devil May Cry 2; she's just a skin. Same wild gesticulations; same deep-ass, growly voice. She started thrusting her junk aggressively, and let out a good, "ZOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOS!" and I just lost it; couldn't breathe, much less see.

Yeah, alternatives to YouTube usually go about as well as Google's alternative to FaceBook. Remember when you just HAD a G+ account? Neither does anyone else. That's a good question, and now's the time to check that out, while you can still go back to the normal way of doing things.

I love that Zelda is going back to its roots of open exploration, but the series has fucked itself; everyone goes into Zelda with a completionist mindset now, and you JUST CAN'T DO THAT with a huge open world. Yakuza kinda does it. Yakuza also has a very reasonably-sized open world. It's also way out of touch; I remember one of the selling points being something like, "Dude, if you look into the distance and see a mountain... YOU CAN GET TO THAT MOUNTAIN! AAAAAAA!!!!" You mean like every other open world game that's come out in the last 20 years? Eh, new species at this point would be a bit apocryphal, depending on where it is in the timeline, but it already sounds like it doesn't fit, because if it has the Rito, it's after Wind Waker... and not underwater. Also, if my hypothesis is correct, the Rito don't even exist in that part of the world; Breath of the Wild takes place in Western Hyrule, whereas they'd be in Eastern Hyrule. Maybe they're just doing that to troll the "fan theory" crowd; I'm 87% sure that's why Toby Fox created the whole Gaster thing.

I finally finished them, too, and cleaned up some of my collection. I don't know what I was thinking; I might've been trying to lean into that Treasure Hunter medal, but now that I've almost doubled that, it's no big deal.

That's where I heard about him, and his big thing is that he decided to marry his wife when she got him a copy of Princess Tomato in Salad Kingdom, because he'd been looking for it for years. Smart man. I can confirm, too; that was hard as fuck to find.

That is crazy; the time of year I most remember playing 7th Saga is the dead of Winter.

I think Adventures was airing on Toon Disney (which had access to several DiC cartoons) in 1999 - 2000, but I heard that channel had limited distribution.

Lilith would be the one fer Sonic ROM hack recommendations, but I'd say Complete and that one where Big the Cat fishes are good choices.

Oh and Paladin's Quest and Lennus 2. Don't forget to play those Enix james.

Lux and Esuna complement each other extremely well, with the added bonus that they're the only two companions that will never randomly betray the player when you acquire a rune and neither will ever be the traitor apprentice in Patrof. Lux just works a little better as main because you can upgrade him in past Melenam by talking to a guy, whereas if he's the companion it takes some finagling.

If you want to use Lejes he should be your main, because he has the highest odds of trying to snatch your runes as a companion.

You should! It's the PSX platformer that's been left in the dust, playing second fiddle to Crash and Spyro. Just like Rayman maybe? Oh, and many congratulations for clearing The 7th Saga. [Link]

Congratulations on your victory, King Lemele. If you do get around to that second go at 7th Saga, I'd recommend the team of Lux as main character and Esuna as partner.

The Suikoden series sure brings back lots of memories for me. For me, Suikoden IV would be my favourite. Suikoden II and III are good as well. Though, I have a little impression about Suikoden V (maybe because I haven't completed it). Perhaps I will go back and replay Suikoden some time.

Oh Doom 64 is right alongside the original for me, too. It went unappreciated for so long, seeing it getting the recognition is deserves is such a good feeling.

If you try Brutal Wolf 3D, just know that he's not kidding when he says the bosses are total horse shit, 'cause they are, which is unfortunate. If you're playing with a source port or a mod that allows for quick dashing (where you double-tap strafe to dash/roll to the side), make liberal use of it as well as crouching, rather than 100% baiting and bottlenecking.

The more difficult Starwolf fight on Venom is where I quit. All that happens is you get shot in the ass. Loop de loop, get shot in the ass. Do a barrel roll, get shot in the ass. Shoot them in the ass, and the other three shoot you in the ass. If there's a trick to it, I couldn't find it. I recall looking up guides and videos, and they didn't seem to be doing anything that I wasn't, so it may very well just be a crap shoot.

"Not for long." ~Civvie 11

I'll be interested to hear how it goes. Like everyone's first night of Minecraft, everyone's run through that first level is different.
I haven't played Shadow Warrior, but if you have, Civvie describes Blood's normal difficulty, Lightly Broiled, as being equal to Shadow Warrior's hardest skill, just for perspective. Extra Crispy is intended for co-op, which I didn't know until I saw his videos (which I highly recommend after you've beaten it, or at least each episode; each video covers one episode).
