Are the people that say "Sonic was never good" memeing or actually serious? Saying Mario games are better is one thing, but acting like the 2d sonic games were bad or even average platformers is just ridiculous. Even for the 16 bit generation, the best gen for platformers, Sonic was an S tier game among its peers in the same genre.

Yep, they're great. I unironically think anyone claiming those games are bad are just trolling. 3d Sonic games are good too but they're not as good as 2d Sonic.

Games that your school had but have not seen anyone mention it again?

This one was bugdom, and everyone loved it but I only saw someone once get past stage 3. Then later saw the mentally handicapped kid at recess got to a level with human legs actually walking around.

We had The Castle of Dr Brain in the 5th grade. After about three puzzles, there's a DRM "puzzle" where it gives you a word and you have to look in the instructions for the corresponding symbols. Since we didn't have the instructions, we all just assumed it was a puzzle that we were all too dumb to solve and we spent HOURS trying to figure out the solution. Once or twice, somebody solved the "puzzle" by sheer accident, then immediately forgot which three symbols solved it, so we could play the rest of the game right up until some random kid inevitably decided to delete the file and start over.

>Pic not really related.

So I loaded up my Black Knight game again. Spent like a day clearing ruins and nodes as usual. It was official patch 1.31.

Then I forgot to save before fighting a pair of earthly Wyrms plus a Basilisk. Slingers and Werewolves badly wounded one of them, and my Blackknight finished it off. Basilisk lightly wounded my Black Knight.After more slingshots, I tried to finish off the 2nd Wyrm(at about 1/2 health) with my BK again, but it killed off my BK in just 2 hits. Damnit, it's like the first strike effect didn't work! A 25 Attack/19 Defence Black Knight wasn't good enough to take down a wounded Wyrm. Also failed to cast Berserk because they were in a Nature node. Crakcalls failed to work too, but that's expected.

Remembered that I haven't saved my game in like 20 turns 'cause I was doing so well. So I tried to reload the "Continue" savegame, but it seems to overwrite the "Continue" when I quit to the main menu. Damnit. I already got myself 5 retorts, and 12 books on the shelf, before my BK died.

At least I got my hired elite paladins units back, in my older savegame. I couldn't make any paladins of my own 'cause the map had absolutely no human towns. I think I lost both of them when some Dijinns dispelled their Flight enchantments, so they can only counterattack the flying Dijinns. I thought Magic Immunity protected against dispels???

wiki has a good explanation of how monsters are allocated to encounters. Usually you will see the strongest enemy there (I've never seen it say skeletons when there are shadow demons for example). But of course you won't know how many. It's always a safe bet to be ready for sorcery nodes to be full of phantom warriors or phantom beasts, unless it explicitly says Phantom Warriors (or maybe Nagas).
But in some cases the creatures are poorly ranked. Earth Elementals come to mind. A node will say Giant Spiders but be filled out with 3-4 Earth Elementals.

>phantom warriors or phantom beasts, unless it explicitly says Phantom Warriors (or maybe Nagas).
sorry that was confusing.
I meant anything except phantom warriors and nagas might have a handful of phantom beasts along for the ride.

Someone could just have the same game made again basically with just bug fixes and adding more content, like higher amount of wizards in a game, larger/more detailed map generation settings and possibly expanding diplomacy so you could actually have allies.

In particular two wizards could agree to magical contracts that you had to fulfill to the letter like non aggression pacts or not expanding to certain areas or even perhaps agreeing to use your magic to buff each others cities/units and such.

Thanks! I just wish the game wasnt being vague like this in the first place. Its similar to what HoMM has with its legions/lots/zounds bullshit but worse.

>>5691334
I hope. I played AoW 2 and got instantly turned off by the game giving me an furry starter hero and units being single entities instead of squads. What the fuck were they thinking?
Funnily enough MOO2 seems to be in the same loop where companies will make a worse MOO2 over and over again. Some will blatantly copy everything down to the race concepts.

>>5691345
The game needs an (2D) HD remake or a openMoM or something. The biggest hurdle for me and most others I assume is the UI. The majority of it is excellent, but what is shitty really is shitty. Movement of armies that have mixed unit speeds seems to fuck itself half the time or im missing something. There's also just many convenience features from newer 4x games that'd make the game much more pleasant to play. I need to take it in one or two hour sessions where as with MOO I can autism out and do the whole playthrough on a max size galaxy in two bursts.
As stupid it is to complain about it, I think one aspect of the game that also needs additions is the soundtrack. The building complete theme is good, but having it pop up 500 times each turn once you have a bunch of cities makes it really irritating. The overworld tunes are also good but too few. And it could be my dosbox settings, but the battle theme turns into an unholy mix of bleeps and bloops 25ish seconds in and its distracting as fuck. I wouldnt complain if MOO1 didnt have a better soundtrack or if MOO2 didnt have arguably one of the best ones out of the whole genre.

I'm thinking about picking one of these up because the prices for a GBA everdrive are ridiculous, as well as the prices for a decent handheld to play them on. But do these little handheld consoles have save states or only in-game saving?

I've just been going through the Zeldas I haven't played in 10+ years so this was next on the list.

Anyway I'm about to enter Turtle Rock. The dungeons are way way shorter than I remember as a kid. This took me weeks back then. Now I've blazed through 85% of it in a day, no guides even. Just need the cane of byrna and 4 heart pieces and I'll have all items too.

Yeah nonsense, because that skepticism over incompatible platform upgrade cycles wasn't related to the crash at all. In fact most of those parents probably never dealt with that before during the second gen, which is why it was news going from NES to SNES.

Why the fuck not? In Japan, the Famicom was still going strong, despite the release of the Super Famicom. Shit, Nintendo didn't end production of the Famicom until the 2000s.
They probably figured that North America might be the same, but it turned out that it wasn't.

>>5688903
Pretty impressive how they used so many animation frames for Simba, I guess (I know, copied over from the SNES/Genesis versions), but other than that it looks like sort of Chinese bootleg Famicom game.

Not in 1994. By 1994, Playstation and Saturn were already a thing.

I got a Gameboy Everdrive recently, it works, but when I use it in any of my systems there's a very audible buzzing noise coming from the speaker that's not there normally. Also, when I use it in my Super Game Boy there's a buzzing noise coming through the TV speaker. Is this normal? Is my shit going to catch on fire?

There are many tests you can do to diagnose this. Google for procedures and if you still can't solve the problem on your own post the results here.
