I can't find any 2019 info and people have clearly got through it do it can't be that bad. There were patches but not sure if they fixed everything.

Will serve to just experience it and it's only $20 at the moment.

One of these days I might just import a new Dreamcast. Tons of games I want to try on it.

Such as? Most games I know of on the system have since been ported. Only title I could think of would be Power Stone. Any other tips?

Blue Stinger, Illbleed, Rent a Hero, Berserk, Frame Gride, Soil Fighter, Zombie Revenge, D2, Carrier and yes, Powerstone.

There's more but I can't remember. I have a list somewhere. I'm not sure if some on this list have been ported. I'd still rather play on original hardware where possible.

Got Shenmue. This game is ROUGH.

I'm wandering around some town looking for clues and haven't experienced any combat yet.

The movement is pretty bad while exploring. Getting stuck on stuff and not able to turn smoothly. Indoors it's a nightmare.

Interacting with stuff is bizarre. You have to go into first person and look at something while also being within a certain range which is pretty close. Then, if you're within the correct range, the camera will zoom in. You can then press X and Ryo's hands will come out (this part is all first person) if it's like a closet or drawer and open it. Otherwise you'll get some text.

I'm just running around following the clues and not going to bother with searching for crap because most of the time, there's nothing in the cupboards but grandma's old tea set or some other pointless shit like cutlery.

There's a day and night cycle. Stores close so if you need to speak with someone you have to wait. This part is similar to Deadly Premonition.

One really cool aspect is this arcade I found where you can actually play old Sega games, looks like in their entirety. I played Space Harrier. Haven't played that since I was like 7 while walking home from school.

I had the first one and liked it. I think 2 is good too. After that they turned into large open world-ish games from what I remember. Played a little of 3 and couldn't get into it but that was so long ago.

Thanks for the reminder. I'm going to get my hands on the first game and I'll do some research to see if there's any decent videos or mechanics explanations to post here.

Way of The Samurai 4 is great dumb fun. It is open but the levels are small. I really enjoyed the game having a combat system I couldn't fully understand after playing for 20 hours. There is depth there, is it good depth? Hard to say, but I had a blast with it. It was cheap on steam too.

Just looking into the first game again.

In Japan, an updated version called Samurai Kanzenban.

I can't find any info other than it's an update with bug fixes. I have this and the English ISOs buy can't burn them at present.

Mind that there is a difficulty swap. Cube Normal is now Hard. And Cube Easy is the new Normal. They actually bothered making Easy any easier.  
Rolling Eyes Time stamp. It started before the Wii.

Jolly good haul. Be sure to give Shadow of Rome the time in the lab. Maybe the Octavianus ( Laughing ) passages are a bore, but don't stop till you've had enough. By that I mean higher difficulty. It becomes insane survival. Go salvo!

Grabbed by the Ghoulies.

So I've wanted to play this for years. I'm enjoying it as the art style is like Luigi's Mansion and The Nightmare Before Christmas. I love it.

The combat is weird though. It uses twin stick controls and you attack similarly to Death by Degrees, by pressing the right stick in the direction you want to attack. Thing is in that game you could use other buttons in combination and do tons of attacks where in Grabbed, each attack is based on the enemy type as well as some random elements I haven't determined yet. For this reason, you can't practice outside of combat. The character (Cooper) will just do an initial attack for the directional input and that's it.

For example, if an enemy is really short, like these knee high imps or spiders, Cooper will do a low stomp, like he's kicking someone in the shins. He will never do this on taller enemies.

It's actually kinda like something like Streets of Rage. I might be remembering wrong, but in that game, when you hit an enemy and kept pressing the attack button, the character would do this auto combo, culminating with a move that knocked the enemy away. Grabbed is exactly like that.

So if I start attacking a skeleton, Cooper will do a few light attacks then a heavy attack that knocks the skeleton back. Sometimes the attacks are different though. So it's basically like a light, light, light, heavy ender type string. You can't just do any of the heavy hits whenever you want.

Another thing that can change your attacks is when an enemy is in a downed state, or when they enter a kneeling or stunned state when low on HP. Like on a downed skeleton, Cooper will jump and do an elbow drop.

There's no dodging, but due to the twin stick controls you can move around while still facing the enemy. When there's a lot of them though, it seems to come down to herding them and keeping them all on front of you.

You can pick up various things to use at weapons. There's are really helpful but break after a few uses. They are far more reliable with their attacks because they don't have combos. You can still do directional swings though. Some are throwable items that have a set amount of uses, while some are single throws.

Another thing of interest is you can send enemies flying into others, or into walls to stun them.

That's all for now.

Sudeki and Dragon Quest Builders 2.

Sudeki is for the original Xbox and is an action RPG. No idea how it plays.

Still want to try Sudeki at one point. I remember as a kid my gaming-magazine came with a poster of the game's 'hot chick' that was on my bedroom wall for nearly 15 years. Never played the game but it always inspired me when writing fantasy. Was it any good?

Not gonna lie, I looked into the game based on that cover alone.

Going to give it a try this weekend.

Yeah just hit 500 hours.

Been doing the Kulve Taroth siege which is similar to the Ur Dragon in Dragon's Dogma where many squads are fighting their own version but contributing to the hunt overall. Hard to explain.

I've always wanted to play it.

I think I have ISOs but this laptop won't burn anything.

One of my friends nearby has it I think. Might grab it for a quick jam.

Knack 2 is on sale on my PSN which is NZ. I guess all of Europe should be getting the same deals.

Control looks really creepy, like Inside. Sadly the only rental place left isn't getting it in so I have no chance of playing it until it goes on a serious sale, and that won't be for ages.

Sold a pile of PS4 games that I knew I wouldn't touch again.

Made $135. I'm going to grab a copy of Astral Chain as there seems to be only a few copies around with some stores saying they don't know if they'll get more. I'm saving for a Switch anyway so might as well grab it.

Edit: Ni no Kuni remaster is $89.99 here. Digital only. What a fucking joke.

Birdman

Got Astral Chain and still saving for a Switch. My little bro might pay half and we'll share the console.

NNK1 actually does have a PS4 physical release here for $70. Might be worth grabbing because in addition to having the convenience of PS4 (not that pulling out the PS3 is hard) we get new display options and the previously exclusive DLC. Not 100% sure if it's all the regional DLC though. Still researching this.

Jesus christ man! That's a lot of freak'n games haha! More than I've probably bought in the last year or two. I see a lot of high quality titles though. Especially enjoyed Fist of the North Star and Mario 3d World. My god, which one are you going to play first?

Bought Atelier Sophie. Need to go pick it up from the depot because no one was home when they tried to deliver this morning.

I'm only interested in the alchemy system. If it's good I'll look into other titles.

Birdman

Lost Magic and FF12: Revenant Wings. Still waiting for them to arrive.

Got my eye on other Atelier games, but they aren't priorities. Still playing Sophie to see if it's a series worth getting more into.

Haven't bought jack for a long time. The last thing I can recall getting for myself was probably DaS3. The next I might buy will be Elden Ring. If AEW really makes a proper No Mercy clone (much less improves upon it), I will consider getting that. Thought about getting T7, but Oni isn't able to measure up, I don't play online, I have no one else to play with and find little satisfaction slapping the AI around. It is even worse with SC6 (Oni wouldn't even play it). They would have to put (original) Kratos in it (again) to make me consider proceeding with that much. I might consider MK titles if Boon wasn't such a cunt (bring back Rain you piece of shit). FighterZ just can't win me over it seems.

Mad Max has awesome Batman combat, and a looks pretty good. That is where my praises end. It has the most boring open world in a while, a lame skill tree, and almost 0 difficulty in fights, with no difficulty selector.

I played a bit of STS, if you like what you see from footage I think you'll like it. What I played was very high quality, there is a reason it is very popular.

Birdman


Moderator
Is it a straight Batman clone?
Does it have anything unique? Gameplay videos show a lot of grappling and then there's the fact that Max has no issue killing people.

How is the car combat? One really cool thing I saw was going into first person and shooting another vehicle's gas tank.

>STS
Do you keep your deck if you die?
