One of the tips I've learned for older Goemon games is to go to wherever you can gamble and just save state until you get like max money. You will never need to grind money again, and if you do run out of money, just gamble again.

It's just the "main" one that's really... meh.

Didn't know Rokko-Chan was a browser game.

"I've become a lot less strict about using in-game cheats, or emulator save states, too, (in the interest of time) but I'll always say whether I did those things in my progress notes."

That's how I do it too, though I try to avoid emulators and save states when possible, but nothing wrong with using either. Sometimes you 'ain't got time for dat'.

Consider Yourself a Hero: Majority of games are beaten
Thank You so much for the kind words! You are one of the ones that I always ready about whenever your name pops up on my Multi-Tap. You always play the most interesting games and I love to hear your opinions about them.

When I beat my Backlog earlier this year, that was something I wanted to focus on. Instead of just beating my Unfinished games, I still wanted to do that along with buying new games and then going through older games. Replaying Final Fantasy IX was such a blast and I am so happy to have that game checked off my list. Illusion of Gaia has been a fun revisit. I haven't put much time into it, but I am slowly getting back into the swing of things. Have to be very careful with that one as I need to collect 50 Red Jewels.

So, I bought and played Koudelka a few years ago because I really wanted to play the Shadow Hearts series. The original Shadow Hearts was one of the first games I recently purchased and I have wanted to play that for so long. I am not going to put it off any longer as I am going to try and play it around October, for a somewhat spooky game. The original was quite expensive and I don't own any more games in the series, so unfortunately, it will probably be quite a while until I can find the next games in the series. But, hopefully, someday I will pick them up!

It is, but it's a weird indie game (Bioshock 2 Remastered is a major release, and it crashed half a dozen times on me last night in less than 2 hours), and there isn't anything else quite like it, at least visually. You use a WHAT!? I didn't even know that existed! I kept seeing that resolution option in games, and wondered why the hell that was even there, because it was such a bizarre size that I'd assumed that nobody would even make a monitor in that resolution. I can't imagine anyone's using anything other than 1920x1080; when I put this thing together years ago, I don't think there really was any other option, unless you wanted to get one of those ultrawide monitors that is useful for exactly one thing, and that one thing is an authentic way to play the original Darius. Don't think I've even heard of Chilla's Art. It's Domo Paradiso, without question; I know that's the first area, but Love Cruise 64 has that weird low-res look to it that none of the rest of the game has, Geo City makes my fucking EYES BLEED, and Aquanet... well, I guess that's a close second.

I don't have Jazzpunk, but it is on my wishlist.

It's just such an odd decision; I don't think anyone was asking for a Battle Network collection. No style; it was a straight-up JRPG; it's basically Breath of Fire with robots (even uses the same battle font for buff/debuff percentages). It was for GameCube, but I have it for PS2, and I think they're the same; GameCube has a little something extra, and if I remember correctly, it's just another set of dolls action figures.

Eh, the Zero series was more a continuation of the X storyline, and they didn't attempt to imitate it in any way; they played VERY differently from the other Mega Man games. Oddly enough, though, by the end, they did gravitate toward more of a typical stage select kind of structure.

I'd argue that it was successful because of the fandom; it came out at a time when it didn't matter WHAT Squenix released; no more than 15 minutes after it was revealed, GUARANTEED there'd be half a dozen YouTube videos of the footage put to In the End by Linkin Park. Personally, I would've used Metallica's So What, but that's just me; I do have this AMV of Advent Children set to Let's Fighting Love from South Park. It's just bizarre hearing all this buzz about my favorite game; it was only ever big in the translation circle prior to now. I think I kinda spoiled that for myself; I saw some very new sprites at Spriters Resource that I did not recognize at all.

And now, it has $30 DLC that you can only play on the hardest difficulty, because fuck you. NFTs are just a fucking grift, and it's the same as it always is: rich assholes get in on something, hype it up, and make their money by selling it to others, which is when its value just evaporates. If we'd just stop worshiping rich assholes, we wouldn't have so many problems like NFTs. Apparently, crypto is also dying, now? I have no idea who John Lydon is.

And as you can see, I didn't even remotely stick to that; probably starting Anodyne tonight, which was going to be the last of the bunch.

Watch GOG; I picked 1 and 2 up for $5 each. I think I originally got all 3 for free from the Humble Store, but they were Steam codes, so I wanted to pick up DRM-free versions of them... except Infinite, of course. Don't know much about System Shock; I tried to play it on an old XP machine, but I had trouble figuring it out. Of course, this was before I realized you could play Shooters with a mouse, so that might've helped. I'd seen it before, of course, but this was with Doom Engine games, so the mouse actually physically moved your character, rather than just aiming, and that just seemed like a horrible way to play. Tried it recently with Heretic/Hexen, even, and I couldn't get the hang of it.

I thought that was probably the easiest one, followed by BattleToads & Double Dragon, and then the Game Boy game; NES is still the hardest. That was surprising, too, since it's an Arcade game, so you'd expect it to want to munch as many quarters as possible. I see Prohallus has weighed in on Alien Soldier; apparently there are tons of secret techniques I never knew about...

Honestly, as much as I hate its ugly character models and minigame bullshit, Twilight Princess might have the best dungeons, because their items are usually a hell of a lot of fun to use. That fun stops the instant you finish off the boss, unfortunately, but in the actual dungeon, it's usually good. The Lakebed Temple was great, too, especially that part where you go out of bounds and run around in the water; that was so bizarre that it's stuck with me all this time. I agree with your assessment that Skyward Sword is bottom of the barrel Zelda; I couldn't believe how many times it made the most irritating decision possible, though I did like the crafting elements it had. Zelda's just a mess, because even if it tries to do something new, people are going to bitch that it's deviating from the formula, even though that formula isn't very good.

Dragon Slayer is probably the most frustrating franchise to me; I absolutely LOVE Faxanadu and Legacy of the Wizard, but you won't find any other games that are anything like them. I did try those Legend of Heroes RPGs on the SNES/Genesis, but they seemed really damn generic, and that's the impression that I get from those newer Trails Beneath a Steel Sky Railroad or whatever games, except a lot of people also tell me that the characters and writing are weirdly regressive.

I've been recommended Symphonia by a lot of people, but watching some gameplay, it just seemed really annoying to keep hearing the characters shout their anime techniques every single time they fight, like, "LIGHTNINGY CAT-BISCUIT! HA!" That and I hated how Phantasia played on the SNES, so I never really had the chance to get into the series, and now that Namco is the way that Namco is, I'm kinda glad; plenty of companies are waging the war on ownership, but Namco seems like one of the worst right now.

I don't think so, but I can't really say for sure, because it's a straight-up JRPG; it doesn't play like the others... for the most part. When you attack enemies, you walk toward them, and if there are obstacles in your way, you'll pick them up and smash them with that instead of your weapon; bicycles are still the most broken shit in the game, so it is still authentically Yakuza.

I remember taking one look at it and saying, "Fuck that," just because of how ugly it was, just like the DS version of 4. At one point - and after spending quite some time trying to figure out who the fuck Refia was from some head-up-their-asses conversation I found at GameFAQs - I got curious and watched a longplay, and HOLY SHIT. Whoever made that version didn't really get the original at all, and now, we're also stuck with onion knight worship, even though they're supposed to be a throwaway class you never use after the first dungeon. The only Playstation ports I played were 5 and 6, and while 5 was pretty decent, 6 MURDERED the sound (though not as bad as GBA did) and crashed pretty often. Don't know why I didn't play Origins; I might've just stopped paying attention at that point, or had gotten my hands on the emulated originals.

If you do, just remember that the best materials are available via a sidequest that you can repeat as many times as you want; you don't have to kill 1000 of an enemy type to get the black version, and then try to farm it from them.

The thing with Dark Souls is that it's hard because it wants you to play it in a certain way. I've played NES games; I know what that's all about. Thing is that like Resident Evil, it takes its own philosophy and totally fucks it up. In Resident Evil, you're supposed to run away more than you fight, but the shooting is just fine, while the walking is broken as shit. In Dark Souls, you're supposed to patiently wait for an opening, attack, then dodge to keep from getting murdered, which is why you have a stamina bar that depletes when you swing your weapon. That's all well and good, but dodging - the thing they want you to focus most on, I remind you - ALSO drains the stamina meter. That's just not fun to me. As for "achieves what it intends," I just don't understand why so many people assume they know what the game was intending to achieve; where are your assumptions coming from, and why are you so confident in them? You could say that about recipes I designed, when the result was a complete accident that turned out to be something great, but absolutely not what I intended.

Honestly, the games I'd recommend are the SNES games and Mystical Ninja for N64, and if you're still looking for a fix, the Hoshizorashi Dynamites thing for Game Boy Color. The ones I like, I REALLY like, but there are a lot of duds, too; I found just about all of the NES games to be kinda boring.

Alien Soldier? Don't fret. If you can handle Cuphead, you can handle Alien Soldier. Just remember:

- Some weapons are more effective than others in certain sitchyations. Flame works wonders against organic enemies, for example. (Mine goes buster, homing, flame, and lancer.)
- B+B actually converts projectiles into health. Very impotent!
- You can do a quick dash to evade. When youse at full health, you can do a super strong phoenix dash!
- Of course, practice. The only real difference between Supereasy and Superhard is that Supereasy gives youse passwords. I finished both and I can't recall if there was any real difference between the endings. Maybe some body can remind me.

General Pepper: Good luck!

Just finished the game now. Without counting the last chapter, I gotta say I feel the Edo Japan one played the best, but my personal favourite was the present-day "fighting tournament" one. What a novel idea. I knew this game was going to surprise me, but, well, damn. This game deserves to be in the same tier as Chrono Trigger.

I think I 'figured out' the game once I played the Distant Future chapter and the name of the ship's AI was given and the name looked awfully similar to the possessed horse demon I fought in the Wild West chapter. I felt a bit of a chill when I realized that it's the same villain from all the other chapters and then I knew where the game was going and had a rough idea how it was going to end.

It's also worth noting the remake has an additional last battle. After you defeat the seven incarnations of Odio again, you fight him one last time. It's not especially difficult (nothing in the game was), but it was a welcome surprise.


A lot of the challenge in challenge hacks is just stat boosting for enemies, I find, so it just drags the game out. A good hack does things that fundamentally alter parts of the game and makes you consider new ways to play it. I played a decent Earthbound hack once called Infina's Invasion that not only swapped out many enemies for monsters from other games and told a (somewhat) original story following the original game's events, but also had a lot of enemies using vastly different battle strategies like Offense/Defense Up spells. It was worth pursuing to the end. This FFVII hack sounds like more along the lines of that sort of game, which is very much welcomed.

It's especially apparent when the whole purpose of FFIV's active time battle system was supposedly designed to invoke the feelings of F1 cars lapping each other, which implies speed.

I can attest the remake of DQIV is indeed much more player friendly and comfy than the NES one, having played both (and having full party control helps). Yes, it's missing the party talk feature, but that's not a big deal in my opinion. The whole DS trilogy is maybe a bit too easy, but they're fast, relaxing plays that you can easily multitask to if you're so inclined. I'd highly recommend them even through emulation.

[raises hand] What if you've already played the PlayStation version? Man that took, like, 60 hours when I played it back in 2009.

I've been outta the emulation scene for years. How handy it would be to learn how to emulate Saturn games and stuff. My expertise doesn't go past emulating Super NES games on ZSNES (not SNES9X [Link] ) Oh well. Just don't got time.

Thoughts on the upcoming Soul Hackers 2? I know there's a PS4 version but what if they have to issue a day one patch or something? That'd be uncool. I don't have a PlayStation account. Maybe it'll come to Switch next year?

Vanquish is really good if you enjoy TPS, and it is even sweeter at 60 fps.
I replayed it not so long ago and the Platinum magic is really there. It is a short game, with good combat mechanics that may inspire you to do a second run after the first one.
Remember to toss cigarettes from time to time! They are very effective to distract the enemy's attention.
You got 3 per mission I think.
Cheers!

I played a challenge hack of FFVII a while back and I was good up until I was somehow only dealing double digit damage to the final boss. That's a bit excessive for me. I do agree the base game is too easy but I attribute that largely to Enemy Skills being way too powerful. I love the idea of making other Magic materia available early in. Doling it out at set gameplay intervals makes sense for summons since later summons are more powerful than earlier ones, but magic materia levels up on its own and can be utilized with the Added Effect and Elemental materias.

For FFIV DS, the way my bro worded it was that the slow gameplay exacerbated the "difficulty" especially near the end. Sort of like he was saying "If I'd put in this many hours into the original game I'd be overleveled, but I'm getting one-shotted by dragons in the last dungeon and I just want this to be over with". In the end it's hard to rate a JRPG's difficulty if it's just entering commands. I replayed Super Chinese 3 this weekend with the translation patch and the most "difficult" part of the game was the atrocious encounter rate, so in a way it's a matter of "willing" myself to finish RPGs sometimes. I often say I "dislike grinding" but that's a half truth because I love the DS remakes of the Dragon Quest games so dearly. They still require a lot of leveling up and gold/skill grinding, but the battles are super fast and I can easily grind while I do something else.

Man, it sure is tough isn't it? Lol. I really don't remember it being this tricky, but I played it with my mom when I was a kid so I think she must have helped a lot. I definitely think the first outweighs it massively in terms of charm, but there's loads that I love about this one too.


If you mean by alien creatures the little green things that possess the zombies, oh my god yeah. They drive me nuts! If there's different creatures that I've just forgotten about, I'm sure the rage they bring around will be fun to deal with when they crop up.

I saw some footage of it! That's great that it exists. What are somma your highlights so far? (I saw they put Gilgamesh from FFV in an optional fight.)

Silpheed actually started life as an old Japanese computer game. It was eventually beefed up and made on the SEGA CD. So yeah! It's a sight to behold. See one of what the Lunar and Grandia people made earlier and why they were such a budding company back then.

Yakuza 0 is going well, it has been my morning game so I imagine it will take some time, it will probably transition into my main console game, I am trying to use all my consoles, and AI has been my main game on my console because it is very captivating.

As for FFX, the difficulty mod I'm is just going to scale up the difficulty as I play via the mod because I think it will be a good challenge. Hope you are enjoying Nier

Hi DarkLink, how are you? Once again, I'm supersuper late with my reply, I'm sorry
Thank you for your compliments Yeah, now I've a lot more of free time, even if I'm already lost in a million of things ahahah
Wow! I read that you're on a Yakuza-fever! I really dig it and fully support that! I only played 1-2-3 (original releases) but I love the series a lot! I'd like a lot to finally play 0 or 6 (or even 7...), but the long nature of the games discouraged me a bit (especially after I had a "burnout" with the series after 3, which, while good, I didn't like THAT much). What's your favourite game atm? I honestly loved Yakuza 2 the most... the story in there was incredible. I think that Ryuji was an amazing antagonist for Kiryu and a beautiful character on his own. I've already my copy of Kiwami 2 here, but, once again, I didn't start it unfortunately

I'm really hyped for the hypothetical DS2 (or anything else), too! Yeah, the horror elements in the first game were a bit undercooked in the end, I'd like a bigger focus on the horror aspects, too! I think that, alternatively, they could go batshit crazy and go in space, with travels between systems and the micromanagement gameplay applied to ships, cargos, and flight/gravity too. I've read some interesting fan ideas about a possible sequel... but who knows! The ground gameplay could still have a lot more to offer, and Kojima and his team are more than suitable to find new brilliant gameplay ideas... I'm looking forward Overdose, too. Did you find it interesting? (at least on a conceptual level)

I think I gotta try that FFVII hack.

I don't express this a lot but FFVII is one of my all time favourite games. There's just something about the "flow" to it, the variety (yes, even the forced minigames), the atmosphere, and the aesthetic that I find really really satisfying. I don't even care about the Cloud vs Sephiroth stuff or the expanded universe beyond the main game (my favourite character is Reeve/Cait Sith). I love the game's world, the music, the gameplay, everything. I've played it a ridiculous amount of times (there was a period where I'd play through every 2nd weekend while at my dad's place). I could go on forever.
Faster and faster. And for a long time you wouldn't feel anything. And then you'd burst into fire. Forever...
