Friendly reminder that this is actually the best 5th gen Castlevania game.

I felt the same way as a kid and for a long time after that as well, but I honestly think Castlevania 64 has held up surprisingly well. Playing it for the first time since childhood not too long ago I was surprised that everything about it still felt pretty good, much better than I remember it feeling as a kid that kept falling in the fucking water.

How?
Mana isn't an Eva pilot, and we know who she is. We're 3 movies into Rebuild, it's been 12 years, and we still don't know who the fuck Mari is.
Have you played Girlfriend of Steel? Mana's really not similar to Mari at all. If anything, Mayumi from Evangelion 2nd Impression would be more of a parallel since at least she also had glasses.

I'm replaying PSIV right now (haven't played it since the 90s) and it's underwhelming me. While I like the character art and monster art the map arts are bleh and the music isn't good either. The towns are full of lots of empty and repetitive space. I can see why Final Fantasy won the RPG wars.

Ah, here is someone who wipes their face after they shit.

It's actually preposterous to think that people actually beat this series on hardware back in the day. I know it was made for hardcore jrpg fans, but Jesus. I tried, but sucuumbed to save states scumming at the very end.

And she tells us the Mentana creator-god alien guys who can grant wishes can be contacted via a machine, the secret of which is written on 4 monuments on 4 different planets.
I remember seeing 2 monuments, gotta go back and find those. I think one was destroyed tho.
No leads on black hole parts for thawing frogs yet but still lots of star systems I haven't explored.

They did the 10th anniversary press conference, then two old DVD revenge challenges, then Ikki, then Karnov.

The first couple things they did were a little rough around the edges. Ikki and Karnov were a bit more polished.

This thread is for discussing the dreamy, surreal 5th gen console known as the Sega Saturn.
I turned it on yesterday, only to find out the battery has already ran its course (it showed me the date/hour screen), I changed it 3 years ago so I think it lasted more than average (have read many people say theirs only lasted 1 year). Anyway here's the weird thing: the saves are still working. I guess before it's completely dead, it deletes the internal clock first, then the saves? I already have all my saves backed up on the memory cartridge anyway so no loss for me, but was surprised.

He knew the Saturn had nothing marketable to a western audience and wanted people to get hyped for their superior Dreamcast instead.

Nintendo and Sega aren't consoles, they are companies.

The thing with Sega is Sonic didn't come into things until the 16-bit era, and he went away in the 32-bit era and didn't re-appear until the Dreamcast.

Nintendo had Mario since Donkey Kong, so 1981, and they've kept him prominent from Super Mario Bros in 1985 onwards.

In the Master System era, Sega's main mascot was Alex Kidd. With the Saturn, their mascot was probably pic related, if anything.

So I'm picking up FF3 again after a lengthy hiatus. I know, it's the pleby DS version but I was still enjoying it. I am at the final dungeon but feel like mixing up my party and going to explore the world again to grind the new jobs a little.

I'd like a balanced team with no overlaps but a challenge too if possible.

New games ported to old systems are totally within the rules though...

Really the general rule of thumb is shit like:

is it on an old console?
is it a remake of something on an old console?
is it from before 2000 on PC or arcade?

If yes to any of these, you're good to go.

I've only played the NES version, but I never liked how Ninja and Sage are the ultimate jobs that outpreform everything else except for late game onion knight. I like to mix and match my party for synergy more than just having a physical damage dealer and a magic support.

I guess it didn't really change anything though, I ran with four monks/karetkas throughout the game mostly anyway since their HP growths were high enough to tank bosses and kill them with their high damage, so three ninjas and a sage was probably a logical progression. Does the DS version change anything regarding the jobs? I'd consider a replay if it has something at least half as detailed as FFT.
>>
>>5691064
>Does the DS version change anything regarding the jobs?
Every job is end-game viable in the DS version (or, at the least, is suppose to be, but some jobs still suck pretty hard). i.e. Warrior at endgame is more of a glass cannon, thieves have insane damage due to number of hits, etc.Only a few are straight-up upgrades to an older class, and even those are usually arguable since most of them you don't get until the last crystal meaning you'll have to grind them if you want them as good as the classes you're already using.
