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

Basic grunts should usually just tread randomly around the player occasionally coming in for a jab. In the standard Final Fight model they're pretty much just used as support for actually threatening enemies, and to give the player a sense of fun from bashing groups of dudes without getting oblitera...

Re: [PS3/PSV] Dragon's Crown

Only nine 'stages' was a bit of a surprise to me, a good surprise. I was imagining the game would be super epic with a billion locations, many of them reusing art. Nine stages means that its focused with each stage being completely visually unique. I reckon that completing the game by only doing the...

Re: The inevitable next gen thread...

I have a whopping zero interest in the new consoles, the only info I cared about at e3 was stuff on Dragons Crown. Its funny to see how much consoles have stagnated. Big jumps in graphics to make each new console actually stand out simply doesn't exist anymore, and companies more than ever are embra...

Re: Horror Visual Novels (Human Entertainment, Chunsoft, et

I was disappointed by the action scenes in Marine Philt, Dead of the brain 2 is superior in that department.

Action scenes aside its a cool game, obviously drawing on Aliens, Predator 2 and Split Second.

Re: [AC] Vampire

I actually wouldn't be surprised if that was the original Japanese artwork too hahaha this is the early 80's after all.

It definitely looks hilarious but the colour composition is superb.

Re: MSX Laserdisc games

Does anyone have any comments about the current scene in Japan for Laserdisc arcade games? Do they ever really show up on YAJ that much? Is it equally as hard to find both the boards and the discs for a single game? Does this stuff sell into the thousands of dollars? By the way Triad Stone/Strahl wa...
