The only one I've played so far is 13, and I very much enjoyed it. I intend to play 15 eventually, because it has cute husbandos.
Same except put 8 between 3 and 1 and 5 above 4
is this a typo or do you mean IX?
I meant IX. I was drunk when I did this last night.

i'd really like to know who thought level 4 was a good idea, so i could rip their dick off and shove it down their throat.

it's pretty simply as I laid it out. The license got pulled from Sunsoft mid-development - I can't say why. The Terminator game which did finally come out in 1992 was developed by Radical Entertainment, and you can see just what dreck it was in the AVGN review.
I happen to have a cart of Anarchy Edition, the first and during more than a decade it was the only, romhack of this game. It doesn't change much, some palswaps, weapon available, and gives a stage select; but it's pretty cool nonethless. It was never realized as a rom either.

>I have beaten this game no death

I have done it as well, multiple times. It's really not that hard as everything can be learnt.

There are however a couple of spots in the game where not tacking dmg is almost impossible. This is where the game design fails a little.
>It was never realized as a rom either.
Then dump it you fagoo
>stressing the blocks in that one level
It's pure luck I'm convinced the game is bugged in that spot, if he dies, he dies.
>teaching you the ways
a big key to this game is noticing that you can control where the camera is tracking your sprite (i don't know if that's the right way to describe it) basically , you can be at the far left or middle, or far right of the screen and this makes all the difference for dealing with baddies. Also, I do the piano finger, as I find it easier to mash with my index.
>speedrun autism trick
the speedrunners only use the normal gun during levels and then switch to the better missile sort of gun for bosses.
Best of luck fren, either way it's an awesome game with an even awesomer soundtrack
I just got a famicopy of this the other day. thankfully I get to play as the cool robot instead of the faggot kid

Tomb raider. The first 3d cinematic platformer
>it has pixels, so it must be the same!
lester the unlikely
I remember replaying the last level several time because I didn't notice the elevater at the end.
If someone had told me that Tomb Raider is basically Prince of Persia in 3D with pistols then I would have played it much sooner. Great game.

So I got some money to waste on some PC games. Want to buy some older titles, but some more lesser known middle of the road games like Redneck Rampage. Genre of game doesn't matter. Recommend me some of your personal choices.
Chasm: The Rift
Kingpin: Life of Crime (with the widescreen patch [which might be called the "Monkey Harris Patch", but I don't remember for sure])
TRON 2.0 (with Killer App mod)
Uplink: Hacker Elite
Crimsonland (the "Classic" version is worth installing if you can get it in the same bundle, but what you really want is the "updated" version, which massively improves the experience and takes what was originally a mediocre game and makes it actually pretty fun)
Capitalism Plus
Postal Redux (I don't consider the sequel "middle of the road" [it's the best game ever], so I'll just list the original)
Requiem: Avenging Angel
Rise of the Triad (1994)
Soldier of Fortune
Soldier of Fortune II

So why did they massively increase the difficulty for the American version?

Weren't most games localized the other way around, so it's harder in Japan?

Turns out he was secretly an Abbo, who as we know are the primitive ancestors of Kangaroos.
>Weren't most games localized the other way around, so it's harder in Japan?

in the Genesis case, it was the opposite: Streets of Rage 3. Castlevania: Bloodlines, Contra: Hard Corps and I believe Rocket Knight are all harder
oh, Working Designs Sega CD games are also much harder
Really it's not too bad one you get a feel for it. But the true final boss sucks, whoever thought that was a good idea is a very bad man.
Contra Hard Corps was released in America first, so the life meter and codes of the Japan version were never meant to be part of the original game and only added because Japan couldn't handle the actual difficulty.

I find it to be single most creepy /vr/ screen of all time, what the fuck were they thinking? It's like a masonic ritual gone wrong. These are occult pixels. I can't believe there weren't any traumatised kids back in the 80s/90s when they booted up this game. And it was a pack-in game? Phew, a ballsy move. I still feel terror down my spine when I think about that title screen and the obnoxiously off-key chimes and tribal drumming/farting (depending if you love Genesis sound chip or not).

>that American Werewolf in London howl when you transform
Well very interesting. They should have put all these additions for the Genesis version. Pads the game out at least a bit more for the better I think. Only transformation I don't like too much is the shark. It seems out of place compared to the other ones since its just a regular shark.
>It's like a masonic ritual gone wrong
I mean how can you go wrong where there's already buggery and human sacrifice and pedophilia and orgies and shit to begin with
>god damnit mary you forgot to refrigerate the human blood and everyone got diarrhea!
I just noticed: isn't that the rideable chicken-thing from Golden Axe?
yes, you fight them in the game too.

>Genesis w/ CD and 32X addons
>is better than the Saturn in areas such as CPU (66.11 MHz vs 57.2 MHz)
>developers elect to do jack shit with the hardware and just churn out FMV games instead
I'm afraid I don't understand. The CD had some good games, the 32X had some good games. Why did nobody even try making use of both? Four CPUs, CD-quality audio, 32X graphics hardware, it would have been sick as hell.

Were devs just retarded?

>tfw you'll never know what 32X CD is really capable of

Not really. Most games released only in Brazil were only released because Tectoy was "stuck" with Genesis (and the Master System) well into the late 90's, targeting poor and uninformed people (like Tectoy scumbags always did) who wanted video games but couldn't buy a Playstation or a Nintendo 64 or didn't understand the consoles differences, and Tectoy desperately needed more titles to keep the console and all the add-ons alive.
So they grabbed some cancelled games here and there and published them, and also did some shitty BR exclusives like a Woody Woodpecker game and cheap cashgrabs like Genesis Duke Nukem, Game Gear to Master System ports and fucking Street Fighter 2 for Master System.

Although they have a huge following today, thanks to some insane nostalgia, Sega wasn't that huge, as the consoles were extremely expensive in Brazil. Actually, during the nineties SNES easily outsold Genesis in despite of being released later.
Not sure where you get the idea video games aren’t progressing, it boggles my mind how almost photo realistic these Battlefield and Grand Theft Auto games are when just 20 years ago I was playing boxy-ass Counter-Strike
Didn't 32X and Sega CD games still rely on the Mega Drive for SFX, though?
>is better than the Saturn in areas such as CPU (66.11 MHz vs 57.2 MHz)
it doesn't work that way, even with the CD+32X the Genesis can't compete with a GBA, let alone a Saturn
>developers elect to do jack shit with the hardware and just churn out FMV games instead
because this frankenstein monster was a pain in the ass to program for and the small userbase wasn't worth the effort
I bought a duo AC adapter for the Genesis/Sega CD instead of a trio because fuck the 32X.

Was this the best Castlevania?

There are some games where the fanbase can hurt your enjoyment though. Undertale was literally designed to be played without knowing anything about it. It was supposed to emulate the feeling you got from games when you were a child where it felt like the game was way bigger than it actually is. Now that it's been spoiled to hell and back it's just le funny skeleton meme game
I played through it last year without looking up anything about it, and still haven't so I probably missed stuff.
Self control is a thing
>There are some games where the fanbase can hurt your enjoyment though.
No, that's absolutley stupid. I'm guilty of being scared off of even trying something because of a fanbase but I'm well aware how foolish that is. Having liked something and then suddenly deciding it's not as good because these poofters like it too is beyond bloody reason.

Every other game with the Castlevania name is irrelevant.

it's "Wind", okay? you call him "Wind". Or do you wanna make his daughters sad again, anon?

Yeah some minor differences in storage type and cfw persistence, but its basically the same. One thing to keep in mind is PSP has had iffy batteries for awhile now, and the Go's is smaller on top of that.
As excited as I am for this, the pi zero can't do PSX or PSP games, and it even has trouble running SNES games without overclocking. I'd love it for for the 80's and early 90's stuff, but that's about it.
What's the best for someone looking to only play GBA? pokemon mostly. NDS would be nice too, but unnecessary.
A DS. The PSP ain't bad for that either.
