Re: Thread of Adventure

99% of Japanese adventure games are the picture and text variety rather than point and click, but there are a couple on pc98 that are an exception: http://fullmotionvideo.free.fr/screen/G2129.html http://fullmotionvideo.free.fr/screen/G3665.html Tokyo Twilight Busters in particular is rather incredi...

Re: Shadow Force move list?

I think there used to be a few but they are long since gone. I've only ever really used Tengu, and this is some of the stuff I remember so the same commands might apply to other character: Spinning lariat - half circle forward, punch Charge throw - back, towards, punch German suplex - towards + punc...

Re: The emulation thread...

I believe Tao Taido also has 2 players co-op mode vs the computer (3 fighters on screen), which is pretty strange because it isn't a VS boss only game like Dadandarn and Oni The Ninja Master. I think I recall seeing screenshots of Knuckle Heads where 3 characters were on the screen at once but I've ...

Re: Unemulated arcade belt scroll action games

Yeah the main tactic in the beat em up sections is to just stun guys with a few jabs, then throw them to the side where other enemies are to get everything on one side, at which point you do full normal combo's. Spriderman is also the top tier character because his throws have the best arc for hitti...

Re: Unemulated arcade belt scroll action games

So while digging up another board that needs dumping, I found my Spider-man which I dumped and submitted to MAME today. It still does drain your health. The manual says default health is 400 with difficulty on 5. I played this a bit seriously at the start of the year for a few credits. Despite the ...

I was a bit bored with the arcade and ended up playing SSF2X and VF2 most of the time after getting the high score on Pac-man. lol Did you register it at Twin Galaxies? lol I got another Night Striker recently, maybe we can set that up somewhere.

Re: Re:

Grappling and realistic melee action is not as fun as the wild anime-style fights that DMC and co. are trying to simulate. Real grappling is two dudes on the ground barely moving. For everyone other except the actual combatants, it's almost a yawnfest. And that is how it is with videogame players -...

Re: On gamengai, Gaijin Punch and videogame theory

Oh man 3D brawlers still have the most potential and I'm desperate for something to my taste to come out on the current generation. Stuff like Bayonetta, Lords of Shadow, God of War 3 and MG Revengeance are insane games and offer pretty much the most astounding looking visual set pieces and cinemati...

Re: [PC] Steel Strider

The full version of this is godlike. Stages are epic as shit (the demo isn't even the entire of stage 1) with great setpeices and insane bosses (5+ bosses per stage). One of the best action shooters I've played.

Buy it http://www.7-iro.org/store/

Haha I was just gonna add a couple of games to the list but it spiralled out of control and I added like 30 more games to the front page. Also added more info to a lot of existing descriptions and more screenshots, so make sure to see the added stuff on Dragon Unit and Max Warrior among others!

Re: Huge ass fancy thread on Famicom action games

Yeah the AC version of Guevara is quit slow paced and requires careful strategy while the famicom version is one of the most blazing fast paced action shooting games you will ever play. The additions in the famicom version are great too with the proper mini-bosses and crazier stages. Yeah ikari 3 ar...

Holy shit, I used to play Guerilla War as a kid (pal 50hz...) and then I kinda ignored it in recent years due it being an arcade port. Cranked up Famicom Guevara before though and was completely floored by how fuckn fun and awesome it was. Way better than the arcade version, its just so insanely fas...

Re: [PC] Steel Strider

Demo version is out with 1 stage http://www.interq.or.jp/saturn/takuhama/ss.html Traditional Japanese arcade style but with the control scheme of some modern Western games in the genre (WADS to move, mouse aiming for shooting, DOOM style gun inventory) which is something I like so no problem for me....
