>who cares if you press jump 1000000 times or other stupid shit
I said difficult or odd things, not retarded things.
What fun is there in getting an achievement if you unlock it by simply playing the game normally? An achievement should be rewarded to you for doing something difficult or really strange, not by simply completing the game. What's the point of calling it an achievement if you're not doing anything difficult to achieve it?

On a smoko? I should leave you alone.
The minor toxic people like more show their ego about having more points than others, make other people demotivate for the first objective : have fun . These wanting top leaderboard just want their dingu sucked- oh they don't know nothing valuable could be with them when being in the grave.
I like the idea, but its implementation is far from perfect.
Since they're made by users, it's always boring shit like "beat the first level", "beat the second level", until there's a turbo-autist adding something insane like "beat the game without getting hit once", "get all your characters to level 99"...

games you would like to have the source code for, maximum of 6 allowed, choose carefully.

I'll start

Aliens vs Predator 2 (AvP2) PC
Goldeneye N64
Harvest Moon SNES
Perfect Dark N64
Alpha Centauri Planetary Pack PC
Super Mario Kart SNES

Also, if the source code for one of your favorite games exists, what would you like to see done with it? Do you think there are instances where the code has been released and its just gone to waste?

Jagged Alliance: Deadly Games

Forgotten middle child, I know, but it would take very little effort to turn it into an insanely good tactical roguelike with infinite replay value. It was almost there.
It's just RingWide. There's an emulator out there just for RingWide/RingEdge and a few of the other PC-based modern arcade games. See here: http://emulation.gametechwiki.com/index.php/TeknoParrot

Have at it!
In no particular order:
1. GTA 1 and 2 to make them run better.
2. Blood
3. The Dark Engine (there has been a source code leak but you can't do anything with that legally speaking). Imagine playing Thief with VR support modded in.
Can't think of anything else right now.

I'm looking for a list of all Famicom games in chronological order. Can someone tell me if this is an accurate list? I'm not knowledgeable enough about the Famicom's library to spot any mistakes.
Looks accurate. This data is well documented in Japan, so it's not hard to find online, and I can't imagine any websites getting any details wrong.

Famitsu has a complete list of all games released for major consoles. However, it's not listed in a super nice single list like that. It also doesn't include unlicscneed games and bootlegs from China. Many of these online lists are likely using Famitsu's data, or using the same database that Famitsu uses anyways.

For instance, according to them 160 games were released for the FC in 1991. 1994 seems to be the last year anyone released FC games, with 7 released and some of them were compilations.

The site is not super easy to navigate, but you can just use these links:

Didn't find another thread like this. Let's get one rolling. Forgot the name of that one game you used to play? Ask here, try to be as descriptive as possible. Also help other anons remember games.

I'll begin, RTS game for PC/DOS from the 90s. Looked and played like a straight Warcraft 2 clone, but is based on medieval Japan. I think it had a number in the title, like "7 realms" or something, but not 100% sure.
Don't know your OP, but I have a very generic one...
Mega Drive game, probably a fighter, but it may have been a beat em up, only thing I remember was a stage on a boat with some sailors (?) in the background

Seven Kingdoms?
Seven Years War ?
Battle Realms ?

Let's have a thread for two of the best PC racing games of the nineties. Do you prefer 1 or 2? I've played more of 1 so I guess I prefer that one. They're both fantastic games in their own right.
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
I prefer 2. Got hooked on it after playing a demo that came with one of my sister's Kerrang or Metalhammer magazines.
I bought the full game, played the shit out of it, bought the patch disc to uncensor my version, and still have all the useful cheats memorised. Love it.
I got the original not long after, and while I enjoyed playing through it, C2 is just a much better sandbox for fucking around in.

I never played them. How did they compare to twisted metal?
Love them both, but I prefer the first one. The race you have to do on the ski resort track in Carmageddon 2 is absolutely miserable.
They're completely different. Carmageddon's car combat isn't weapon-based. It's more like a gory demolition derby.

Yesterday, On Doom's 25th anniversary, John Romero announced an upcoming unofficial Episode 5 for the original Doom to be released in February.

The mod will (OF COURSE) be free. But there is also a boxed "Collector's Edition" that comes in 2 versions (with one considerably more expensive than the other). (This was skipped over (presumably mistakenly) in the Doom General, so I'm making a thread for it for people who missed the announcement.)

Why do we have to wait 2 months when the wad is practically done?
I see no problems with any of these.
It's not like back in the Dai-Katana days where he had the gall to outright said he did most of the work on Doom.

I'm assuming because of the physical copies. The .wad itself will be free, but I guess he wants the incentive to remain, so that two months from now, it won't be "Whatever, I already played it."

Could also be that it still needs polish, we've seen what, two or three levels or so? There's more that needs to be done, and we've only seen the Deathmatch arena of one map I think.
This just reeks of trying to cash in on another company's IP through his past association. He should just make his own game. In fact if this isn't promotion for a new game called Sigil, then I don't see the point.

He should retrace the ID's series. First make a 3D game with low polygon environment and 2D sprites. Low budget, tests the water for interest. This can re-use the maps from Sigil for episode 1. Then if this game is a hit, make a fully 3D game with more complex lighting and more polygons (roughly equivalment for Quake or Quake II). Keeps the budgets low, and focus on gameplay and action.

its not even half as good as kirby adventure. you have shit taste if you think all stars is better
It controls way better than adventure, and I enjoy the variety
Adventure is among the best NES games though
Beautiful game, amazing AMAZING controls, fun as fuck.
I admit I never played Adventure more than the few first levels, I should go back and finish it someday, but Superstar really blew me away. Mostly because of the controls, but I ended up loving the shit out of the aesthetics, music and characters/enemies/bosses.

>tfw you genuinely like Amiga CD32 and it will now be considered a shit console thanks to the nerd

It has some real gems which the nerd obviously didn't bother to mention and thanks to the leaked developer's kit people are porting over Amiga 500 and 1200 games onto the console. It's more alive than ever. But no, it will now forever remain nothing more than a laughing stock and shitstain in gaming history in the minds of other people thanks to that episode.

I'm going to be playing through the first two System Shock games. Anything I should know going in?

skip SS1 with its clunky controls (yes, even with mouselook) and godawful mazelike leveldesign
horrible post ignore this guy
daily reminder only absolute fucking retards can't adjust to system shock's controls in 5 minutes of play
Be prepared to get lost. A lot.
SHTUP is a quality vanilla mod.

Pretty much any built you go for will be viable, just put a few points into research at some point. Also for some reason Normal weapons ends up being borderline OP by the end.

System shock 1 is an excellent game, especially for it's age. Just expect backtracking later on.

Both will kick your ass, but save your hand grenades in SS1 for when you first smash SHODAN's nodes. She will send a literal army of cyborgs after you, once you have just gotten the handgun and if you know anything you'll be spamming that thing dry and using frags to try to cull that horde.

This, but in a good way.

This but 10 minutes and with Ultima Underworld.

Willow is kind of a cool game, and it's a shame it's only remembered as a poor man's Zelda today. It's rough in a few spots: too many areas are a bit same looking, too little enemy variety, with bland looking bacgrounds, and ti desperately needs SRAM saving. The sprite work Willow, the enemies, and the dialogue scenes are all great looking for the Famicom.

It had a bunch of MM devs on the team too. It was directed by MM creator Akira Kitamura, and MM3 composer Harumi Fujita did the score. MM artist Naoya Tomita did monster designs.

>Sounds like that poor man's Zelda title is well-earned.

This exactly. Every other thing that's supposedly "totally like Zelda" is always inferior to the actual Zelda games.

It's German for ambition

It's a lot better than Zelda 1 in some ways, worse in others. More detailed graphics, more varied sword play and spells. Better music.
>willow is a pretty cool guy
