Ghost In The Shell
[Mission 9] Mission variety is quite good, it really is. Gotten used to using the d-pad (yeah, it was before the PS1 had analog). Holy shit, the OST!

☆★★★★ it's ludicrous how the PAL copies of this were mostly rental onel, and it's rare as hell, and goes from 50 on onwards used. Finally found a copy for a reasonable (the "not in debt" but still expensive since it's uber-rare) price, so happy to have this in my collecton. :)

That's funny; AVGN actually made a Top 50 Shitty Shark films, and Avalanche Sharks is on there at #48. [originally, when he made this video in 2013, it was a Top 40, but he updated his list in 2017.]

Well, it sounds like your situation could have been worse. [my situation I'd rather elaborate via PM, sadly. just don't feel comfortable sharing the rest in public.]

Right now, I'm just working through my backlog. was working on the VC games, but I'm now working on my other non-VC games.

Yeah, SNK has played it safe for some time now. =/ Ever since they became SNK Playmore, I can't think of a game they made other than SNK Heroines, SNK vs Capcom DS (which sucked) or King of Fighters. Everything else is just a re-release of something.

Well, I enjoyed Burst personally. Also, Renewal didn't feel like such a big improvement overall tbh. Sure, it's prettier and smooth and the areas are much bigger and better, but it felt like it was exactly the same game to me. I can't think of any other remake I played that felt so much like it wasn't even trying to do things better, just prettier.

Take ghostbusters, for example. New Ghostbusters 2 (made by HAL; yes, the same company that made Lolo and Kirby) [Link] is almost universally considered to be superior to Ghostbusters 2 (made by Imagineering; not to be confused with Imagineer, which is a JP company), [Link] sadly, it never came out in America (although it was released in Europe, and there was a US prototype online). Compile's take on the series is good, too. [Link]

Maybe I'll import it once I get things back in order.

All I can say is, I hope Ganbarian learns their lesson from their previous OP games. did you know the founder of Ganbarian used to work at Technosoft? [if you're not familiar with that name, they're the company behind the well-beloved Thunder Force series.]

I never went to dive myself, but I have been on the beach a few times when I was younger, and my mom also fished a few times as well. I've not heard of that manga, though.

You're braver than me, then. because of my current condition, I usually don't buy LE/SEs. the only exception I made was for Senran Kagura (because I can't get a physical copy otherwise) and Persona 5 (I was able to get the LE for about $65, a dollar above what I usually pay for a brand new game).

I've not went to theaters (at least, not recently), but I stumbled upon an German animated film that had numerous knockoffs of well-known characters (such as Mufasa), and the animation was awful (characters simply shake their heads when laughing, for example). the English dub somehowhad even more problems (there's a constant ball-bouncing noise every few seconds, the song is just the Dutch dub dubbing over the German voices in the background, etc). the numerous comments on the video making fun of it almost broke me. XD [Link] making it worse is that the English dub was on a PS1/PS2 disc (rather than on DVD/VHS like in other regions) and they just slapped on some minigames so it wouldn't be rejected by SCEE. it has to be seen to be believed.

The Town With No Name is another "favorite" of mine. I think it's supposed to be a parody of western films, but it's just... I mean... wow. [Link] it only came out in the UK (because the console it was released on didn't came out over here).

Well, if they were to forget adding Metal Slug or SNK Card Fighters and only chose some fighting games, it'd be a big disappointment. If they put those two plus Biomotor Unitron and Crush Roller, it'd be a great selection though, no matter which other games they choose to go with.

Before the 3DS ones, I feel like the main story could be beaten in a reasonable time. I'm not so sure for Gates to Infinity, but Super has a really long introduction (many many hours before you even have the chance to recruit other pokemon). It doesn't actually have better writing than the previous ones either, it just takes too long trying to make sure you know what you're doing before letting you play. =/

Also, have a great new year. Sorry for the late reply. :P

Appreciate it. should be less of a pain now that my most of my nephews/nieces left (including one who has been very violent has of late). hope you had a good holiday, too (probably far better than how mine went).
I wish Compile Heart would make a brand new game from the IPs they got from D4 Enterprise. the only one they've made so far is Sei Madou Monogatari (released here as Sorcery Saga: Curse of the Great Curry God), and that one flopped... which isn't a surprise, since it was the first new game on non-mobile platforms in over a decade, was a dungeon crawler (one of the first, but better ones that have came out since then), and it doesn't star the original heroine, Arle Nadja. [to elaborate on that last bit, Madou Monogatari spun off into Puyo Puyo, using many of the characters from MM as enemies. Sega bought the Puyo Puyo IP in 1998, and when Compile went defunct in 2003, D4 bought the rest of the IPs. CH got all of them back in 2010. so they have the original series, but not the spinoff or the character who starred in them. it's weird.] at least M2 is making an Aleste game (Aleste was also Compile).

Also consider that the next Omega Labyrinth game and the updated version of Moero Chronicles are coming out on Switch. given that SCEA/SCEE both blocked its western release, that should tell you something.

I think it's only this game so far that was censored via patch. the reverse happened with Nora to Oujo to Noraneko Heart; they got rid of the lights (likely due to all of the complaints), but now they're just wearing more clothing.

The slider being hidden was probably the company's decision to do that, behind Sony's backs. apparently, Sony now requires you to send a report of the game's content to them in English, even if the game is going to be Japan-exclusive.

Ah, okay. I wanted to be sure; not really watched Mary Poppins. when I hear "Mr. Banks", I immediate think of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air; the family in that show have the last name of Banks. [I don't know if you've heard of that show, though.]

Many of these license games being so terrible is why I rarely buy them nowadays. back in the 80s, licenses were handled weirdly; western licenses tend to do poorly in the hands of a western developer because they are usually sold for a quick buck (there ARE exceptions like Goldeneye). while in Japan there tends to be more care put into those same western IPs. I don't know why.

No, but I understand that the people I talk to have busy lives (unlike me), hence the "used to it".

Thanks. always had an affinity for aquatic-related characters (always picked the Water-type starter first), and I really liked Sun & Moon's setting. probably because of my ancestry.

Unfortunately, the only reliable websites I can think of is Media Create, a website tracks Japanese sales of games on a weekly basis (their weekly sales are frequently posted on Gematsu and Neogaf/Resetera). there's also NDP Group, which tracks US sales. don't know any website that accurately tracks EU sales.

Well, I can understand reviewing a game... especially if it's so bad it's good.

Oh, by the way, I got around to read your review on that One Piece game; maybe it was a good thing that it wasn't released in the US.

That could be a possibility, too.

and Gal Gun 2 has it on PC only, i think.
I knew that... I just noticed that I accidentally said former when I meant latter.

Mary Skelter 2 had a minigame where you had to rub on the body parts of girls to purify them. it's similar to the rubbing minigame in Moero Chronicles and its direct sequel, Moero Crystal (they're all made by Compile Heart). the Japanese and Asian versions came out uncensored, but later IF released a patch for the Asian release that ended up preventing you from "interacting" with the girls, leading to some complaints. [Link] this despite the fact that the game is rated 18 in Taiwan.

Nekopara had its boob jiggle slider hidden (the graphics for the slider were removed but not the slider itself).

Mr. Banks?

he didn't code them all himself with a needle and thread.
That's not what I was saying. what I was saying is that sometimes, a game that's not quite as good as their previous games can be because a different team within the company worked on it. it's rare, but it happens. as I've told you before, the development staff of Ganbare Goemon: Mystery of the Black Ship was composed entirely of people who had never worked on a Goemon game before, and it showed. curiously, many of those people would never work on the series again. of course, this example is different (being a franchise made by a big-name company and not a bunch of unrelated one-off games), but still.
Present Time.
