Re: My Tumblr Site

Speaking of Lost Worlds, apparently Two.P from Final Fight is officially 2P from Lost Worlds. Check out his profile here (I can't find it on the Capcom Fighters Network site). http://shoryuken.com/2016/11/17/jessica-rick-j-two-p-and-phantom-bison-bring-the-cfn-portal-site-to-200-character-profiles/

Re: Replacement SFC Plastic Cartridge Holder Insert?

I don't recall if SFC games were sealed or not. The wrapping did seem unusual now that you mention it. I figured new would be the best bet for quality. I recently ordered a new SFC game from a retailer's old stock, so I'll see what the plastic situation is when it gets here.

Re: My Tumblr Site

You got to love 1P. And who could forget 2P? There's more Lost Worlds art I need to scan. Eventually I'll put all this stuff on Mediafire too, in higher quality.

My Tumblr Site

While the original Megashock remains in cryogenic stasis indefinitely, I started a Tumblr page for posting video game artwork.

Replacement SFC Plastic Cartridge Holder Insert?

I recently got a new sealed copy of Akumajou Dracula for SFC. Surprisingly when I opened the box the plastic cartridge holder was yellowed and shattered in some parts. I've seen cartridge holder inserts (cardboard) for SNES, and I'm wondering if anyone makes a SFC equivalent. If not I guess I'll ste...

Re: Dork out: Game Goals...

Did you play it solo or with others? I played this and New Super Mario Bros. U for a couple of hours with two others and always got annoyed by how they turned themselves into bubbles when about to die. I played 3D World solo. I've since played through Galaxy 2 and enjoyed it.

Re: Dork out: Game Goals...

I haven't played either Galaxy game so I can't compare them. Something about the gravity gimmick and waggling for those star bits rubbed me the wrong way at the time, but after seeing some footage of Galaxy 2's course designs I think I'll give it a shot some day.

I will be re-launching MEGASHOCK in 2016, and there's one detail regarding the title that I would like some assistance with. The official title will be "MEGASHOCK", with the logo stylized as "メガSHOCK" in reference to the Japanese Sega Mega Drive logo. As for the subtitle (English...

Japanese Font Identification

Does anyone know a site like myfonts.com for identifying Japanese fonts? I've been trying to get some of these identified for a reproduction project I'm working on, and I've yet to find an exact fit.

Re: [PC] Steel Assault — action platformer, looking for test

I can think of Assault Suits Valken (and many of the games inspired by it) and a few other SNES/MD titles, but no arcade games.

In Strider Hiryuu, Meiou talks during the lead up to the final boss fight.

I enjoyed their last game, Oniken, but I didn't think that it surpassed any of the games it was paying tribute to (except maybe Jigoku Gokurakumaru). This one looks like it could.

Re: The Official WTF are YOU playing right now thread

I'm excited for Sunset Overdrive. It very much has the look of a 90s SNK game. Despite the Strider series being my second favorite series (Ninja Gaiden is #1), I only just recently downloaded the new Strider from XBL. After playing it for a few hours, well, it's okay I guess. I lost interest in this...

Re: [PS4] ASSAULT SUIT LEYNOS

Looks worse than the MD game, so I don't see the point. Hopefully they'll eventually tighten up those graphics into dot art or go for the Vanillaware style.

Re: Belt scroll fans unite, please give me some advice

If you can only have 6 characters on the screen, I would recommend that you specifically program the single-player for 5 enemies instead of 4 with 2P opt-in. Low enemy count is what ruined virtually all console belt-scrollers except for the Bare Knuckle games.
