I'd like to ask you all, did you ever see a single screenshot from a game, or hear the title of a show, and imagined a totally different story than what the game/show was about?

Pic related. I originally saw Chrono Trigger in 2007 issue of Nintendo Power, advertising the DS port. Based off the tiny description and one screenshot, I believed that the story was about a medieval kingdom discovering time travel, and essentially having an "age of exploration", but throughout time. It was an accidental discovery, and I thought in this scene, they would be charging Crono with exploring different eras. Later I had slightly more info, but didn't know about 12,000 B.C., so based on Magus' art, I thought he was a vampire guy from an 1800s industrial time period. I kinda wish that one was true.

Additionally when I heard the name Attack on Titan, I honestly thought it was supposed to be a scifi anime with some colony on the moon of Titan.

How about your stories?

I was fully expecting FFT to be more like Jagged Alliance or Heroes of Might & Magic, every TBS game I had played up to that point sans Shining Force had an emphasis on management and territory control.
If my first time playing Chrono Trigger was the 2018 PC version then what does that make me?

This game is shittier than Castlevania 64 but nobody will admit it

THE COPE. Rondo of blood is the best classicvania by far and you know it. Overrated (but still good), CV4. Bloodlines is way better.
First sentence sure sounded like an argument, and frankly your explanation sounds just as halfassed, anon.

>stuff that wouldn't look stupid in an action movie
This is probably the closest you came to saying something that worked. The changes in gameplay probably had more to do with it becoming more cinematic, for better or worse, and in the case of LoS in particular, it likely partially stems from coming from a long line of games borrowing from each other since it was what worked from times then to times now, like from DMC to GoW and so on and so on.
>Rondo of blood is the best
As an entry point to the older games, maybe, and a good game in its own right,but outside of bosses, there's nothing to Rondo's gameplay that the other classicvanias don't outshine it in. Inb4 muh copius amounts of pixel art, aesthetics can be and are an important part of CV from the beginning, but gameplay should never take a backseat to it, and Rondo of Blood is the point in the series where that crept in, if not sooner.
Dracula X was called Vampire's Kiss in some regions.

Thoughts on Tenchu? Currently playing through it for the first time and enjoying it quite a bit. The soundtrack especially stands. The English voice acting is absolutely dreadful however. Is the sequel just as good?

Ok that sounds super cool to me. Just from taking a short look at the game on YouTube you wouldn't think there's much there at all and initially I was like 'Meh. Not sure about this one.'
Like I said. Art, music and characters are meh.
What you can do with the engine though is impressive.

Controls take a while to learn, because you kinda run pretty fast and crouching while moving the camera is janky. But know that after that, you'll be able to zip through stages like no one's business.

Just beat the game with Ayame. While certainly a little janky it's still quite enjoyable overall. The atmosphere, art direction and music are outstanding. My favorite levels were Missions 9 (Reclaim the Castle) and 5 (Execute the Corrupt Minister). I like that it doesn't solely focus on stealth but gives you enough combat prowess to take care of business once you get found out - actually digg the combat quite a bit even though a few more attack moves would've been welcome. The boss fights ARE GARBAGE - all of them! As is the voice acting. Intentional or not, that shit is straight up heinous.

Which GB/GBC games that don't have ports on newer consoles are worth playing?
35 replies and 9 images omitted. Click here to view.
I missed the second part of your post, but gender has nothing to do with Legends being an issue, especially since CV has plenty of female protagonists like Carrie Fernandez/Belnades, Sypha Belnades, Maria Renard, Charlotte Aulin and my personal favorite from my favorite Castlevania game: Shanoa.

I already brought up the plot, but now onto the actual gameplay: Legends controls really STIFF, and not intentionally stiff like Castlevania on NES, where moving Simon still felt good, and the jumping was the only stiff part of it since you have to commit to it. Legends feels really slow like Christopher does in Castlevania: The Adventure and much like in The Adventure, the level design really doesn't complement the controls you have to deal with, unlike Belmont's Revenge. Which is disapointing, since Legends came out WAY after Belmont's Revenge, at a point where developers knew how to code on GBC and all it's workarounds.

Are you fucking serious?
Belmont's Revenge is in the Castlevania Anniversary Collection
Does anyone know if Spud's Adventure is any good?

Should i give this a try? Sure the game has a obnoxious fanbase but i never tried the game so im curious.

>better netcode than 99% of games

Yeah I think calling it top tier is dumb but definitely in a unique position.

what's the death spiral? No more online tournaments? Bedsides the ones that are probably gonna happen anyway, like the Lud tourney.,...
At this rate someone will just make an almost exact melee clone but with the IP taken out. The game is basically immortal for better or worse.

>implying not capitalising the "I" isn't the bigger crime
I had the first one. It was a good RPG. You also absorbed your armor stats on ng+ which means every time you beat the game you could get stronger and stronger until you could one shot every boss. I never did find all the frog cards.
The PC version is unsurpassable
idk if i ever played this one but i played philosophers stone on the gameboy like 10 times through for some reason i fucking loved that game

speaking of archive.org looks like someone uploaded the april everdrive packs here

For some reason the N64 archive won't open and you can't extract it either
I dont understand this thread. Why are you pretending finding ROMs and ISOs on the internet is difficult?

If you've been around, you know these sites come and go and even in the current age, with Google being absolute shit, any game you want is only a few clicks away.
On that note I hope someone's able to hack together GBC support one day, the SD2SNES has pulled off pretty incredible shit so it doesn't seem too far-fetched.

X3 Sigma is the worst bossfight in the X series.
Ditto 5 and 6.
Also BN5 and BN6.
RE4 will always be trash, no matter how many times you try to force this shit.
The only problem with Shenmue was Sega thinking an adventure game could be a system seller, on a home console even when they were even dying out on PC, and also everyone recommending it as a general classic when not everyone likes that genre.

I find it easily as great as GTA, just the fact that one focuses on action while the other does adventure, tells you all you need to know about how successful they were. Maybe it could have done a lot better in Japan if they compromised it into jarpig tropes, but i can't see any scenario of it succeeding in the West on console.

Commodore 64 - The best selling home computer on the planet. Why does it make speccy fanboys so mad? Were they hoping to get a C64 for christmas but their parents got them a speccy instead? frightening if true. also: general about the best computer ever invented.

that's still 170k of space
The NES port of California Games suffered because Rare were cheap fucks who insisted on using a 128k cartridge ROM when the C64 original used a double sided floppy so they had twice as much space.

I love my C64, recently got into making cartridges for it. made a dead test cart/defender/ghostbusters/IK+/Pac-Man/Centipede/Pit-fall so far.
sometimes stuff just doesn't wanna work though, like Giana Sisters. it goes to the title screen but then doesn't wanna load the rest.

magnets. yes

I remember reading about someone doing this, or more accurately putting a tiny C64 program that displayed some text on an album. But the idea isn't crazy. We stuck a record on V'Ger. I guess they didn't know about grooverot back then.

Ever since the rule updating, this is now considered Retro. Released on 2003 for PC as a free download, have you ever beaten Don Ramón, /v/?
It's unfortunate that there's no actual retro Chavo games, like imagine a Chavo game for NES.
But yeah I played Street Chaves (the brasilian version, didn't know there was an actual spanish version), and I beat it, it was a terrible mugen but pretty hilarious. The brasilian chavo songs are something else.
The Spanish translation came out apparently a few months after the original BR release.
