I think today I'll toss some recs for the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive

Streets of Rage 2 is the greatest beat em up video game ever made, and the best game on Sega's 16 bit console

Mazin Saga Mutant Fighter is another great beat em up, this time based on Mazinger Z. Really great animations, and a neat ass style change when you fight bosses

Castlevania: Bloodlines is the best 16 bit Castlevania. Best levels, two characters. Sorry, I don't make the rules.

Granada is a really neat and cute tank game with great controls. You get a weak little shot, a button to hold your position, and a huge ass shot that actually sends you flying back. Fun fun stuff

MUSHA seriously just play MUSHA please it's freaking amazing

Mamono Hunter Youko really tough action game with great designs. Emphasis on really tough

Alisia Dragoon is a neat action game where you play as a girl with sick lightning powers and a variety of familiars. You can charge up your main attack to be a huge screen wiping blast.

Contra The Hard Corps is the best 16 bit Contra, but only the Japanese version which gives you 3 hits before dying.

El Viento is a cool action game made by a group called Wolf Team who eventually went on to create the Tales of series. You play as the cool spell slinging boomerang tossing girl in the 20s trying to fight the resurrection of HASTUR.

Yes, countless times yes. I'm never going to watch Yuri on Ice for this reason, and I had a hard time starting Symphogear.

30: How many anime episodes is 'ideal' for you?

As many episodes as it takes for the plot to remain interesting and have a satisfying conclusion.

I've already watched Dragon Ball Z and Pokemon

It's gotta look cool, or have interesting characters and it can't treat it's girls like shit or eye candy

37: Name a popular anime you love

Yu Yu Hakusho

Tengan Toppa Gurren Lagann

39: Is there an anime you wish was more popular?

Crest of the Stars. Real interesting show

40: Thoughts on live-action adaptations?

I believe it can be done. None of the ones we've gotten are particularly any good, but I think if Hollywood actually gave it some thought they could make a killer adaptation.

Here's a list, I like doing this, hope you play some of them

Soul Blazer is a Zelda clone that throws mindless enemies and some very interesting bosses at you with a plot that can be described as "heavenly". The world is empty and you must repopulate it by killing everything. There is a goat. Learn to crabwalk.

Terranigma is another Zelda like with much better fighting and plot that I have played far less. Yet again the world is empty, except this time you don't have to kill everything, just some things. Excellent music and mood, some hard hitting bits as well.

E.V.O. Search for Eden is a game that should not be bought with human money, as it is way overpriced for what it is. It is an action rpg where you use your experience points to evolve new body parts which is also your equipment. Go through the past fighting extinct creatures while becoming a powerful mutant. Eventually you can become a man, or a dragon.

Kidou Senshi Gundam Wing Endless Duel is the best fighting game on the system. Every character feels good, the sound effects are great, the music is amazing and feels like it should've been on the show, and you can play as Mercurius.

Godzilla Kaiju Daikessen isn't as good, but it is a pretty game. The monsters feel appropriately large and thick, and one of your buttons is dedicated to grappling, which is a key feature of all kaiju eiga. Music isn't bad either

Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers: The Fighting Edition is in the top 5 fighters on the snes for sure. It's the prototype for Gundam Wing using the same engine with some differences. Character variety here is huge, not a single clone in the bunch. Music is rocking, and Lip Syncher plays like she's from an early build of Guilty Gear.

Alcahest is a top down action rpg with great controls and the instinct for murder.

Breath of Fire II is a RPG that is made better by fanfiction. The translation is bad and the game is grindy, but the story is excellent, tear jerking stuff. Definitely a game I recommend consuming via Let's Play or novelisation.

Skyblazer is an action game where you have to fight an evil demon or something, I honestly don't know. Great controls, cool music, nice sound effects, good variety and no battery saves.

ActRaiser is a game where you play as God and fight Satan.

SO there's ten games I think everyone should play. A little bland for sure, but my snes is rusty, and I own most of these so they were the first to pop in my head.

no one wants to do one thing forever

you ever get that problem where you like play one game for ten minutes, and keep swapping games, never settling on one? that was me all day today
stavekoff: (Dixon)
You guys ever play R.A.D on ps2? That game is so fricken sick. You play as this anime parson who controls a giant robot with a ps2 controller, much like you the player and your camera is actually entirely from that perspective, so you have to move around and find a good angle. And the controllers are so damn good too. you walk with the shoulder buttons and move your arms with the analog sticks and you can throw hooks and haymakers and stuff, and there are special weapons and upgrades and 3 huge mechs to control, and you can wreck cities and it's so damn good

Gundam 00 sucks

 What's good guys

Spent all day today and yesterday playing Gundam Side Stories. It's alright, but im digging the sheer variety of ms at my disposal. I started up a Zeon file in Gundam Crossfire also, I can't wait to get me a Xamel, it's actually the reason I bought the game lol. I know a lor of reviewers shat on that one, but I think it's actually a good ass game. It controls well and it's got a good feel to it. I'm not too discerning with my robutt games, and i'm glad the ps3 has a really nice variety of them.

I'm totally hyped of course, I loved Sun, and that Necrozma armor on Solgaleo and Lunala looks sick. And eff yeah Gold/Silver on Virtual console! I want hidden abilities for my johto starters as I missed the original bank events. Pokken sucks
stavekoff: (Default)
Yesterday i played about... 10 hours of the PSP version of Final Fantasy and honestly, I think I love every version that isn't the original NES one (i've not played the wonderswan one tho). I know they get easier with the PSP one being an actual cakewalk, but I love Dynasty Warriors and this gives me the same feeling of unstoppable badassery. And it just makes my imagination go nuts, I definitely almost always make my party members their own characters and stuff.

Best party is Fighter, Black Belt, and the white and Black mages. Thief is useless and Red Mage just doesn't make the cut despite having the best outfit.

A complaint I do have tho is that the bonus dungeons from Dawn of Souls are fucking boring as fuck. They're way too long and the random encounter rate is too high and the monsters are too weak to be any fun. The bosses are cool as heck tho.

I dunno what else to say, good game.

Decided to rewatch some old ass shows I watched as a kid, all dubbed of course. Just feeling some nostalgia I guess.

First up is Dinozaurs which is only alright, being a kids show to sell toys, but I like the cg, even if it is barely above beast wars level of quality. Thank god it's not reBoot lol.

Next up is Zoids Chaotic Century and New Century Zero, which are still pretty dan good. Good plots held upby a good voice cast.

Then im probably gonna binge on Transformers Car Robots/RiD. I remember very little of this show, even tho ive been watching clips, but I do remember that Scourge was amazing.

Then im gonna binge on transformers Cybertron, which is one of my top favorite transformers shows.

All of these are shows that want you to go and buy toys. Haha what is my life.

Real talk

Final Fantasy 6 is not a good game. it's boring, and all but 4 of the playable characters fucking suck. Locke keeps his dead girlfriend in his damn basement!

I just never got why people like this one so much. To me it's one of the blandest entries and I just hate it when people flip shit over mediocre product.
