OH JOES! (A Proto Man Adventure)
Beat the game on Normal, but still have to find all letters/secrets and go through all routes on Difficult.

Updated about 3 days ago

☆★★★★ This is a refreshing take on the series, with levels being designed around Joes to turn it into a puzzle-platformer. Stages are very challenging and full of secrets. The soundtrack is quite good for a fangame, the music in the final stages being my favorite. Once you finish the game, you can go back to previous levels to find anything you missed, and switch the difficulty; the replay value is pretty high here. My only major gripe is the lack of controller support, which will be patched.

[Cleared "Sink Below" Stages: 3/36] That fourth level is kicking my ass pretty hard.

Updated about 9 months ago

★★★★★ This is my favorite puzzle game of all time, and it's physics-based. It's so fun and addicting, but once you beat the first set of levels, it becomes one of the most brutal puzzle games ever. You unlock a new set of 32 stages called "Sink Below", and some of them are just next to impossible. It's worth getting to that point though, just to see Cubie go through a weird change of personality. There's even a co-op mode, which includes a unique enemy and mechanics.

I don't actually remember what the manual had, but I do remember some pretty cool artwork; the guide went really into depth with the lore, though, going so far as to show actual hylians and what they'd wear, right down to their fucking jewelery, and how the rupees all were different shapes; not just different colors. It also talked about how their long ears gave them fucking psychic powers! Ocarina of Time came by and just fucking trashed it all, though. Anyway, the book had drawings of some of the most random things, like a cracked wall with a hidden room with treasure behind it, just illustrated because.

Chrono Cross is a game that immediately hooked me, had a long dull patch that caused me to put it down for months, and then just picked up and fucking SPRINTED until its end. I played it long enough after playing Chrono Trigger until it melted that I wasn't worried about blasphemy or anything, and I'm generally not one to judge a game by the rest of its series. That said, it was actually Radical Dreamers that made me want to play Cross. I actually don't remember what video mode I used.

Yeah, I'm going to go ahead and play what I want on what I want, and people can call me an "ignorant console gamer" all they want. Yes, I've been called that, and I just laughed in his face. Nintendrone was pretty funny, too; fuckers don't even know my game collection, much less know me. I've actually been blazing through games, lately, but tonight, I think I'm just going to chill with some videos, or maybe a few episodes of Ghost Stories, because it's funny as fuck. There were some real gems in the Red Light District, but I think my favorite is Cold Sweat Sex Machine, just for how abrupt it is. Did you pay for the hooker yet? I'm curious as to which service you elected.

Yeah, the KrazyFelinez controllers were pretty shit, though their memory cards worked just fine. Worst D-Pad in existence? Pfff... someone's never used a Microsoft Sidewinder. I don't remember the Game Cube's D-Pad being bad at all, but the more I think about it, the less sure I am that I've ever actually used it for anything...

I've performed better; you can't get more than Level 5, but I've hit harder than 60,000 damage, I'm pretty sure, and used fewer WP/JP doing it, because Tower blows your whole load at once. The combos aren't anything all that special, visually; the different parts don't look any differently when they're used as individual moves. That said, some of them do flow better than others; some look very fluid, where one move goes right into the next, whereas others just look like each person doing one move, then waiting for the next. Some are boring, too; Fist basically combos with itself, both sending and receiving, so you can have a Level 5 combo with just that. If you plan on completing all 5 scenarios, though, DO master the system before attempting Riki's scenario; that's all I'll say about that. Okay, maybe not; I'll also say that I fucking hate Riki's scenario, and if I have to completely trash my memory card data, because it truly is corrupted, I'd almost be fine with it if I can just keep Riki's completed scenario and my System Data, so that I don't have to play him again. Anyway, this one isn't possible with out cheating, but it is pretty bonkers: [Link]

Yes, but it's not necessarily the setting; Nox jokes around a lot, and I love it, but the jokes are actually funny and well timed. Anyway, the only reason they were ever Dragon Warrior is exactly like you said. Did you know that there is also a Warrior Dragon? Best I can tell, it's an old PC game where you're the dragon, fighting against evil knights and shit. I'm a bit picky about Final Fantasy numbers, because there actually are 2 and 3, and they're very different game. As a matter of fact, 4, the old 2, is my favorite by a mile, and the actual 2 is shit; it's a little insulting. Well, yes, and also, I'm not misusing the terms, snowflake or millennial.

I thought you were going to tell me that the downside was the full English voice acting. That reason doesn't make any sense, though. I mean, it's Squenix, and they suck, but that's like saying you're going to chop the fingers off of your dominant hand, so that you can type faster. Less wind resistance, you see. I'd probably be upset if I didn't have a powder blue version of this hand towel in my bathroom: [Link]

Yup, but I don't know how bad it actually was; could be the same kind of otaku bullshit that calls the North American translation of Final Fantasy 6 a travesty. That is a strange decision; the gaming community at large pops all kinds of boners over orchestral soundtracks, which is why they show up on the backs of boxes like some sort of totalitarian checklist. THIS GAME HAS ORCHESTRAL MUSIC. THIS GAME IS IN 1080P. THIS GAME RUNS AT 60 FPS. THIS GAME HAS A CRAFTING SYSTEM. THIS GAME IS A ROGUELIKE SAND BOX. THIS GAME HAS BEEP BEEP BOOP. I agree, though; I like the orchestral overworld music better than the synth version. I picked up Dragon Quest 8 because it was something like $3 when and where I found it, I think. Gameplay was still same old classic Dragon Warrior, and the graphics were admittedly gorgeous; by the end of the game, I was still stopping to stare in awe at every sunset. Well, sure, it's like when Valis made Valis X to try to please newcomers with sex appeal. Sure, it was always there in small amounts, but now, you have a porn game that isn't Valis at all. Also, the series is now dead.

Any and all round things, actually; it's pretty funny. The things you're thinking of, assuming you mean those pesky little bastards that infest Tourian, are Rinkas.

The boxes, I can see, but the manuals? I always used to read them for NES games, and usually also for SNES. I don't know if I ever read the Legend of Dragoon manual, though I probably have it.

No; lips like these: [Link] That sentient candy cane doesn't quite capture it. The new stuff is definitely generic, but the old stuff is hit-or-miss, which is why they're both 50/50 for me.

Rokko-Chan is pretty... what are the kids saying? Bomb-ass, I think? Great game and great soundtrack; I sometimes have trouble telling it apart from Mega Man 10's. No, but games don't exist in a vacuum; it isn't just the hardcore fans that are going to play and know about it. That said, if they at least please Castlevania fans, they'll already be head-and-shoulders above Mighty No. 9.

Pokémon cards were a bit after my time; I wasn't into any trading card games, though my sister had a deck. In fact, I gave her the E3 Pikachu that came with an issue of Nintendo Power that I had; I wonder if she still has it. She's the one that got me into the games, though; I was helping her with them, and I realized, "Hey, they're RPGs! I know those!" 50 pesos!? Shit, that's barely worth the paper it's printed on!

Oh. OH! Ohhhh.... Yeah, most of the porn star names I know are from the '70s, because that's the shit I had when I was a raging ball of hormones; Candy Samples is the one that comes to mind.

I think you're thinking of the NES Advantage; this is the bastard: [Link] The red thing in the middle is total fucking gar-bitch, but if you just press on the black ring around it instead, it works just fine. Joysticks piss me off, too; I've never liked them. It's a ProPad 6, apparently: [Link]

I'm honestly not even sure how that would work in Theresia. I'd say maybe finding all of the memories, but I think you need to do that even to complete the game. Uninvited is the forgotten child of the MacVenture Trilogy, but still fun in its own right. That said, it might also be worth tracking down the Game Boy Color version of Deja Vu, since it contains the only console port of the second game that I know. Well, the Gabriel Knight games are on sale at GOG this week, so those might be a good start. I'd also recommend Dragonsphere, but I don't think that's free anymore. Beneath a Steel Sky might be, but while it's good, it's a bit overrated, if you ask me.

I'd give you a link, but I honestly don't remember where I found the game. I do have 2 of the videos saved to my YouTube favorites, though.

So, RPGs are about exploring, grinding, and planning your next move; shit that you take your time to do, and that's what makes it a satisfying experience. That + Timer = Bork; it's inherently bad game design. Now, if a game is interesting enough, I might be motivated to put up with its shit just to experience that, but Linda Cube doesn't quite meet that criterion; it's not weird and interesting enough for me to put up with THAT level of bullshit.

Thanks! [Link] (she played one of the Ghostbusters) I actually did it with my keyboard, because I was too fucking stupid to realize that I had this awesome controller packaged up right next to my elbow; probably kept bumping it, too. I don't remember how long it took me, but definitely more than a day, and long enough that the pre-battle speech just stopped happening.

Umm.... Sweetie, it's made by a Brazilian developer; that's Portuguese. Besides, I'm not Dutch; I'm Pennsylvania Dutch, so even if I spoke more than a few words, I imagine it'd be closer to the German Turm. I actually heard about it on the Cinemassacre channel, and wanted to get it for PS4, back before I got a gaming quality PC. I haven't played by ICO, but it is definitely more puzzle oriented than Zelda, plus you can jump, so exploration isn't a chore. Not that there's all that much to explore, but there are hidden areas to find, and getting to experience them is more than its own reward.

GOOD GLORIOUS FUCK; it's like Skyblazer and X-Kaliber 2097 had a child that swam in LSD instead of amniotic fluid for the 9-month gestational period! Yeah, if there's any kind of motivation for me to get a MAME upgrade running, it's that!

Oh, are you fucking READY!?!?!?!? I had the silver slim PS2. That's it, unless you count that Atomic Purple Game Boy Color I had. Probably not. I also have this really weird Game Cube that's all white, and has a motion controller that looks like TV remote. Wacky. As much as I don't give a fuck about the N64 or care for translucent consoles, I do have to say that the N64 models all look great. I did almost buy the Ghost of Sparta PSP, but as cool as it looks online, in real life, it just looks cheaply made.

Honestly, I didn't play Difficult; I did play Easy a little bit after getting all of the letters. Can't say much more about that until you're there. Wasn't it? I added most of it to my personal collection, given that, you know, I did have pretty good access to it. Of course, mine are trimmed down a bit to 2 loops or a minimum of 1 minute. Huh. I didn't use Skull Barrier for that; I used Laser Trident. Break Man is both easier and harder to play, depending what situation you're in.

Oh, uh... thanks! I don't really keep track of that.

Heya my friend!
Suikoden II is indeed a masterpiece, one of my favourite game of all time
And yeah, I know Gensō Suikogaiden! I will play it one day, even if I'm not too much into VN (I played some, but I prefere read on paper, after a while my eyes get tired!) and I even played the GBA card game Do you know it?
Anyway I think I will get the new God of War sooner or later, hope the Toxic Sony Fanboys will not read this, but it don't look like that masterpiece that everyone say it is at all... Anyway it seem to be a nice action hack n slash, and I sure like this kind of games!

I have to wonder whether I want to play both games on Dreamcast or PS4. Probably PS4, if only for the fact that I'd have to go through hell to get the Shenmue II PAL DC save to work with the 1 NTSC save. I'm hoping for a Skies of Arcadia rerelease, or even a sequel. It did place on the top 10 Sega IPs people wanted. I'm a bit upset that Sakura Wars was #1, I have virtually no interest in them. I suppose if there's a new one on the horizon, then maybe I'll play them, but...the last one came out in 2010, Skies of Arcadia was 200...3? on Gamecube, and I feel is much more deserving...but I guess that's what you get for making the survey focus on Japan's population. Yeah, they're separate releases, they're by M2 (which is GREAT), and the Phantasy Star port is getting the features from the PS2 collection, which makes me wonder if they're based on the PS2 Sega Ages line...but obviously different games. Oh yeah, Saga needs a rerelease for sure, it's definitely not worth like $500. $150 that I got it for? Probably, but it's fucking insane most of the time.

No, CVX actually released on Dreamcast in Japan. Look at the Biohazard: Code Veronica Kazenban in my collection, that's the one. The US release I have of CVX, yeah, is a repro, that I might as well get rid of, because it seems the guy never got around to restocking it after he sent me the vanilla game.

I'd like to play the Persona games some day, but I'm not really in a hurry to. I've seen streams of 3-5, that's good enough for me for now. I might still play 1 and the 2 games. If somehow I got around to playing them, I'd definitely get the Yakuza DLC.

I have heard of it, but was never very interested in getting one. Maybe if I make room, I'll get one some day if it's not insanely expensive. I do have an X'Eye, and my RetroPie can emulate laserdisc games, so I don't really need one, it'd be purely for collective and novelty purposes.

The Dreamcast games on my wishlist are the Kickstarter games. I'm really looking forward to Elysian Shadows, but that campaign was like in 2013 or so

Yeah, I'm really enjoying SMT4, and I feel like I'm making some decent progress in it. I'll have to give Last Bible III a try once I get through the first two games, and I've actually been watching a stream of the SFC remakes of MT1/2. I really think that some day, I'd want to play those too. I wish that there were more translations for the Devil Children games, since I'd be interested in seeing how SMT works with Pokemon gameplay. I still am in the Solids base in Digital Devil Saga, do you know what items I have to get in order to turn the statues off? I haven't tried the Devil Summoner games, but I think I heard Soul Hackers is a remake of sorts to the first game? That'd certainly make sense given they never translated the Saturn game, but we did get Soul Hackers. I did some looking around, and I guess the Devil Summoner games aren't as well liked as the Digital Devil Saga games? I still probably will play all three, but maybe not for a while. Right now, I'm thinking of doing DDS2 and SMT4A after these two, then maybe Nocturne and Strange Journey, since it'd probably be out by then.

I had my doubts on just how easy Easy mode would be, I definitely feel like there needs to be a middle difficulty, easy is just way too easy at this point. I probably will be fine on Normal mode, given at this point my Agi, Luc, and Mag are all at least 50, and the fact that I don't think I've died at all since the minotaur, at least Flynn, my demons have died sometimes. I got around to getting one with Media, but it still only heals the party for like 60hp. Is that dependent on the Magic stat? If I put it on Flynn, will it heal for more? I have like 70 app points saved up, that I may get the Party MP recovery, but if the heal is dependent on Mag, I'll grab another slot for it for sure. Yeah, I can't wait for SMT5 now, which is weird, I just started out the series like a month or two ago, and already love it to pieces and want more. It's definitely among my most anticipated Switch games. I'd like another game in the Digital Devil Saga series, but it seems the only spinoff they do anything with anymore is Persona.

I haven't really been using items at all, just maybe the odd Life Stone/Medicine/Healing Water to heal when I don't want to use MP. Oh yeah, and Chakra Drops, but apparently I maxed out how many of those and Chakra Pots I can carry last night, which...I guess is good?

So far, usually you recruit people from sidequests. I've warmed up to it quite a bit

I think she was both invincible and too "heavy" to be carried away in the armor suit. I also remember Leon having a harder time catching her when she had it on. I definitely remember having her with it on at that part where you have to snipe chains off of her, and instead I just shot a rocket launcher at her. Miraculously, I think it worked and she was totally unhurt. It was super hard to do it normally in my original Gamecube run, because somehow I managed to beat the game without any kind of rifle, which meant I had to guess where the Regenerator parasites were, but I also ran from all of them, minus the mandatory kills ones.

Doable on keyboard? Probably, but I've only ever played Diablo/Warcraft/Command and Conquer games with a keyboard (and probably Mass Effect), everything else I've plugged in a USB controller, usually a 360/Xbox One controller (360s seem to be the best, even over XBO). The stuff that's not natively compatible with a controller, I've gotten to using Joy2Key with, meaning I can play some of those games with my Saturn controller (I have a spare, one of those white ones with the colored buttons, and I have a Saturn/N64/PS1/2 Mayflash USB adapter). So far I've only set up AM2R and Pokemon Uranium with Joy2Key, obviously the game would have to not use very many buttons. From what I've played, REmake PC seems okay though, but if I had to choose, I'd pick PS4 in a heartbeat. I'm probably gonna get RE0 PC for the mods. I actually don't really mind RE0 too much, it gets too much shit.


I mean, Sonic 2 has a ton of slowdown on Sonic Jam, and that doesn't stop people from loving it. At least, I got a lot of slowdown when I played it on Saturn.

I bet that's why, cause I don't know if I CAN get the standalone 4DO on RetroPie, it uses RetroArch for most emulators with an EmulationStation frontend. My Shield Portable runs on android, so I can just grab whatever emulator off the app store, on which 3DO does run well, but Saturn, most N64, and most Dreamcast are still super iffy.

I've been looking for news on the PSP translation since 6 released today, but I guess they said like a few months after 6 came out or something. I just know that they've gotten a few more translators, and were already done with the main story, just hadn't done much with the substories, so maybe those can get done? 3 is...okay, it just drags a lot in the first half. The second half is much better, but I feel it's overall not as good because of that first half

Yeah Chris can take the most damage so it makes doing Knife Runs a lot easier, but it is still a little bit a pain in the butt since you cannot see the enemies so you will take more damage than you would think. I could probably honestly manage a time under 2 Hours if I could just see the Enemies to make dodging them a lot easier and more precise.

Resident Evil 7 is possible with a knife only from what I was told but I'll try that out if I end up enjoying RE7 enough that is to muster more challenge playthrough's let alone replaying it after the first time.

Both the Banpresto game and the Atlus game look pretty neat, but I don't think I'll be playing them anytime soon.

So, Gideon Zhi (ghid-ee-in zee?) is Aeon Genesis?

Hum, Far Cry 5 is indeed a "good" game, a solid Open World FPS with several stuff to do, is pretty much the same game as Far Cry 3 and 4, it refine some stuff but it also, sadly, take some steps back.
Is not a masterpiece by any mean, everything is good / ok but never great, but at the end, is a fun title.
If you never played a "modern" Far Cry game, is a good place to start. So yeah, at the end is probably not a "Day 1 Must Have" kind of game, but a good find if you can get it for cheap in the future

That's another really good one; it really delves more into the lore than most supplementary Zelda material, and none of that was in the actual game. The maps were fantastic, and the actual quality of the artwork was unbelievable. I don't even know where I got mine; it just kinda showed up one day. No; I borrowed the game for one hot minute from a friend a very long time ago, and then, didn't play it again until I got it for my PSP. I don't remember, entirely, but I think it's Deku Stick/Nut upgrades that you get there; I don't think there's a heart piece.

It might be, but Steam is such a pain in the fucking ass to navigate, which is why I don't use it for much other than buying games. I've heard bad things about the community, too, but I spent quite a few years at GameFAQs, so I don't imagine it's all that bad; it's just that instead of being console elitists, they're PC elitists. Don't know why we can't just fucking play games and not insist on labeling ourselves and becoming martyrs for companies who don't actually give a fuck about anything but our money (because they're businesses; that's what they're for), but people do. Yes, every Anachronox character does have an upgrade for his/her/its overworld ability, but you don't need all of them even to get everything; I missed a couple, and still got all my shit. Well, except for one weird bug that didn't let me get the robot's best weapons, but that's what Debug Mode is for; if the game is going to cheat, then so am I. And yes, you do get a character's ultimate weapon from that. Personally, I'm a big fan of the Red Light District; some of the names of those strip clubs are magnificent.

I don't think I know what a Hori controller is.

I'm not your dude, Bro! I'm not your bro, Chief! I'm not your chief, Man! Anyway, the combo mechanic, like most of the rest of the game, is kind of a mess. Certain attacks can combo into certain others, and it doesn't always go both ways. Also, if an enemy is set to attack in between the attacks (which is more or less random), it will break the combo. It's awesome to pull of a big-ass combo like that, but it's not terribly consistent. My run, though, was more about custom building my party members and learning all of the techniques that go into those combos. Also, I agree that Tower has way too high a cost for a combo that only deals ~60,000 damage. Yes, I said only. That was a pretty neat one, but I've seen better.

Yeah, tonally, it's gone from [Link] to [Link] The older games did have the odd joke now and again, but now, you're a troupe of travelling clowns (the unfunny ones; not the creepy ones), but somehow, I'm supposed to take them seriously when they're going to save the world with the legendary sword? Fucking please. *sigh* Okay, so I don't think we should retcon the older games into being called Dragon Quest, but that guy's just being an asshole about it, and needs to learn what the fuck a snowflake is. A snowflake is someone who thinks they're special and unique and should be treated that way; it's not just a generic insult. Also, I call them both; the old ones are Warrior, and 8 onward and the newer remakes are Quest. Why? To distinguish between what are, tonally, 2 very different franchises. Just like how it was Princess Toadstool before Super Mario 64, when she started turning into a braindead parody of monarchy, rather than just a princess.

It could be like Ys 8: Lacrimosa of Guts Man's Ass; the original localization was said to be so fucking terrible that the PC version has actually been digitally recalled, and is undergoing a total reworking. I've seen it for sale on GOG, and now, it says that it's coming soon. That reminds me: I really wanted to hear the Japanese OST for Dragon Quest 8, since most of the symphonic one is so goddamn boring. Oh, so the 3DS version is kind of a different game, then? That makes a little more sense; I'd just thought that it was the exact same game, but with lower polygon counts. Dragon Quest's popularity in this day and age is a fucking anomaly. The only reason anyone ever bought 8 is that it had a Final Fantasy 12 demo with it, just like the only reason anyone ever bought Brave Fencer Musashi is that it had a Final Fantasy 8 demo with it. Unlike Brave Fencer Musashi, though, Dragon Quest BLEW THE FUCK UP, arguably doing better than the game that was the driving force behind its purchase. But it's such a fucking oldschool RPG with such generic storylines that I cannot understand its popularity with today's JRPG crowd. I understand why I like it; just not most other people. But now, it's so popular that it has Dynasty Warriors games (DW huh huh), a fucking Minecraft/Tower Defense hybrid, a Rail... Slasher, and innumerable other weird spinoffs that everyone loves.

Similar, I suppose, but that reminds me more of the Super Metroid comic where Samus is obsessed with round things. Super Mario Bros. has more outlines in black and white than that kind of artwork, though. I'd liken Metroid 2's artwork more to Kid Icarus, I think. Well, okay, but they could have been evasive about using gendered pronouns, rather than just being wrong. Or give it away, anyway, because nobody reads those; Super Mario Bros. 2 USA even had a goddamn in-game intro that tells you flat out that it's all just a dream, and people were still surprised to find that out in the ending.

You know, I think I finally understand why people hate CG and love those shitty old clay stop motion effects: the original artwork isn't necessarily better, but it's clear that a lot of love went into it; the new art looks like generic stuff made by a computer. That said, I like the Zeta and Omega Metroids better in the new artwork; I've always thought that the old ones look like some hideous cartoon character wearing lipstick. You're welcome. The new Alpha Metroid looks like the crawlers from Beyond Oasis (or Rygar for the PS2/Wii), but super pregnant.

I don't care if you've never beaten a Metroid Prime game before; you can't play everything, you know? I loved the original trilogy, so I got Hunters for cheap, and it's fucking terrible. I've heard that it's mostly only good for the multiplayer, but that's not why I buy a game, so I traded it in for Kirby Squeak Squad; no regrets whatsoever. Well, the same could be said of Mighty No.9; all you have to do is make Mega Man with different characters, and they didn't even try to do that. Hell, Rokko-Chan was a browser game that was more of a new Mega Man than that was. They can always fuck up a tribute game. I don't think it's irrelevant at all; if it doesn't do anything new or interesting, or at least pull a Wild Arms (take the same old shit and put it together in a very interesting frame, possibly with a BATSHIT INSANE story), it's just going to be another face in the crowd.
