  1. They are five of the GB games - different the the NES/SNES games. The first one Dr Wileys revenge is a classic!
  2. Mmmmm? So there was a better Mario style platformer on the C64? Ignoring Giana Sisters....that was just plagurism and Mayhem's controls were far more fluid and responsive
  3. Currently I'm working my way through the stunning Xenosaga episode one as I have been for much of the week. It has quite simply the best plot I have ever encountered in an RPG - I'm mesmerised. Punctuating that with some mindless action from Van Helsing which is great fun. I also had a blast on the Psi - Ops demo and was extremely impressed - enough to get me straight over the vg+ and order it...
  4. Mayhem wasn't published by Thalalmus, it was a mail order only job from the Apex Twins themselves (who coded it and the Creatures games). It had a dreadful multi load too! Anyway I was never a massive fan of the Creatures games...but Mayhem was pure platform perfection - the closest the C64 ever got to Mario
  5. Actually I quite enjoyed the demo... The game still looks lush and I am still looking forward to it immensely. This doesn't change the fact that Galleon was dire however!
  6. Hmmm you know it was all going so well until the god awful pun at the end
  7. Hmmm but that only makes up for the fact the early Dizzy games (Dizzy - Treasure Island, Fantasy World, Magicland etc) were pure Speccy port with the awful graphics that went along with them. Mind you I hated the Dizzy games...although Bubble Dizzy was a fun platformer type thing... Codemasters best platformer was CJ's Amazing Adventues on the C64 - not that was class!
  8. They have....its called the Super Mario Advance series
  9. Woooo Just had to say that as you may be the only other person I have ever come in to conatct with who has/likes 'Life is Sweet' by Maria Mckee. Must go add it to my ipod
  10. It was originally scheduled for beginning of May...then end....then june... *sigh* Now its out on the same day as Tales of Symphonia. Damn. Anyway whats with these supposedly finished and ready to go translated games slipping eh? How long ago was the japanese release eh? *humph* Anyway I'm excited about the goodies as well....growlanser watch and everything!
  11. It was DMC2 wasn't it? Dante in jeans was a hidden costume
  12. Hmmmm yes but the single version of vegas was sooooooooo much better than the tinny mix on 'Smart' Anyway I always liked Sleeper....the last album 'Please to Meet You' was a mini - masterpiece imho. and 'shrinkwrapped' is still gorgoeus even now... Plently of crimes against taste in my music collection too although I suppose my biggest embaressment at the moment is my unabashed love for Avril Lavigne's new album. No it is really good...honest
  13. La Pucelle Tactics: less over complicated then Disgaea and has a far better plot. .hack series - has probably one of the most intruiging stories of recent times and real time action based battles.
  14. Did you every play the C64 version of Robocod? My god the cassette version had the most incredibly bad multiload ever. Each level - 2 mins - then loading....loading....loading And it was a pants game too. Actually Robocop 2 was pretty good as I remember - that was the one done a bit like a cartoon right?
  15. I disagree - thought this section was great. Its rather like taking the stabilisers of a bike for the first time and realising that they may have helped but you didn't really need them at all. You can fly on your own. Or erm something like that
  16. Hmmmm no vandal hearts II was bloody awful and a disgrace to the earlier games great name. I have a strong suspicion the two games had nothing in common other then Konami chose to give them the same title. Anyway my five Vandal Hearts Arc the Lad II Suikoden Xenogears Final Fantasy Tactic Anyone notice the large presence of RPGs in everyones lists (yes I know mines just made up of them but thats pretty much all I played on Psone). Playstation as the best machine for RPGs ever?
  17. pfft I'm middlecore and so is my wife (sorry did I miss something - was there a discussion about a magazine going on somewhere in here?)
  18. Cave 5 is evil - pure and simple. Caves 1-3 are easily beatable at lv30 onwards tho
  19. *more La Pucelle Spoliery stuff* So have you got through the dark Eclair/show down with Homard demon nemesis bit yet? If so how did you manage to kill eclair's evil twin with a lv25 Culotte? *qudos* Anyway on cave one take advantage of the fact the shrooms and bears only attack you if you get near enough to be in range - so pick them off no more then two at a time and concentrate on one side of the map at a time at a time. Also keep one char near the exit so you can flee if you all die horribly and keep the exp. Anyway that map is easily beatable once you get most of the cast up to lv30 - which really doesn't take that long - the exp you get in the caves is loads. 3-4 hours and you'll be laughing - no really it honestly is!
  20. Hmmm yes this is all pretty true and character separation is incredibly annoying - whats more irritating maybe is the implication that the other characters have been doing absolutley nothing whilst you were away battling demons etc... But these games are written for the japenese market - and levelling for them it seems is all part of the fun. I suspect that a RPG that required very little levelling would not be too successful in Japan - which is the market these games are primarily written for. Anyway Juria: La Pucelle - *spoilers ahead* Its no where near as bad as you think - to clock the final chapter you only really need to level your party up to the mid 40s- 50s. I finished the game on about 43 hrs with my best char on level 57. The training cave is excellent for rapid levelling and you can retreat from the level at any point and keep all the exp. The experience is split if more then one char kills an enemy so I found its best to soften up the enemy to almost the point of death and then use a weak char to kill them - I jumped Alouette from lv17 to 22 by killing one dragonshroom thingy. So yes some levelling needed but only a few hours or so and the training caves a fun for trying strategies out on and I thought were some of the best designed battles in the game - well unti lyou get to n.o 5 which is just silly!
  21. Thought I'd resurrect this thread since SRPGs are flavour of the month with the Disgaea PAL release this week. I'm approaching the conclusion of the game now having done a serious week of play (week off work = actually having time for life engulfing RPGs) and I've thoroughly enjoyed it. I've found the game a little simpler then Disgaea and has a much less steep learning curve. The story is also far more impressive - starts off as the usual anime fluff but actually gets quite interesting towards the finale. The levelling isn't quite as well handled, but recruiting and training an army of tamed monsters is class. Having to level up quite seriously now however - the game suddenly gets very hard at the begining of chapter 11. Anyway great stuff and should be investigated by anyone who is either bored of Disgaea or found it all a little too bewildering...
  22. Sorry did you miss the enough of the cliche bit? B)
  23. Xbox - hmmmm yes real manly games like Whipped, Blinx, I Ninja, beyond Good and Evil etc etc PS2 - casual fare such as the FF games, Disgaea, La Pucelle tactics, Xenosaga GC - kiddy games like REmake and RE0, Eternal darkness, MGS TTS, Yada yada, enough with the cliche already....and leave my GC alone you fool
  24. PS2 most - basically it has more games I want to play (mainly RPGs/SRPGs) and as its modded and my Xbox/GC aren't I tend to get all the NTSC multiformat stuff for it GC - second - can be neglected, but whenever a big title comes out for it it enjoys a huge resurgance and of course it gets all the multiplayer larks (monkeyball/Mariokart etc). I also get the PAL multiformat stuff as I prefer the pad to dual shock and controller S and damn it the GC is cute and deserves more time in front of my telly! My favourite if not my most used console... Xbox third by a long way - currently getting a fair amount of use for Ninja Gaiden but once thats done no doubt it will be gathering dust again until another big exclusive hits PAL shores - as I hate the pad (yes even the S version) I seldom buy multiplatform stuff for it....unless its cheap of course
  25. Somehow I think the SEGA brand is far more valuable to Sammy to let it die. Afterall its the main reason they bought the company...
