Arcadey games where the only replayability is autistic tranny speedrunning is grounds for cheating so I'd say he was in the right.

These games that get solved easily have no value. There is already a world record set. Why would you slave over something that is of no benefit to you.

Kirby is a lot of fun at its core so I think I would enjoy an extremely difficult Kirby game outside the boss rush modes.
>>
>>7332120
>more content
But not good content. Mostly just reskins of existing modes and made even fucking easier than the original game to the point of being totally braindead. At least the original Super Star required you pay attention at least a little bit.

Hi guys, i'm new here, sorry for my bad english
Im trying to find a computer game that I played many years ago, it was maybe 2004, the computer was an old one, it had windows 98 if I remember correctly, but I'm not sure

The game was about space and passing levels with an astroship ufo like or a rocket, I think they were red, about the levels I remember that were presses or pistons that could smash you ship, also were some big rolling rocks or asteroids type that you should avoid, also were lasers that I think came from some statue's eyes. I hope someone could help me to find that game, I'd like to play it again, but just find the name would be fantastic
Thank you :)

Terrafire or Astrofire?

https://www.ortsoftware.com/
>>
I think it seems similar to terrafire, like you have to avoid obstacles in a defined path, I want to believe that there is no much profundity perception, could be terrafire, but really I'm not sure

Anyone who played this game has my full respect.

Didn't matter. You only had to manually play your first 1-3 colonies, after that it was just a matter of swarming the entire garden from the "map view".

I wanted to but Mom never let me order it from the book club catalogue. Would it have been fun for an 8 year old?
>>
>>7333154
Yeah I played it when I was like 7
>>
>>7332961
It was an alright game, but very shallow. There's never a need to actually play the game past the first colony, and you always start outside, so there's all these cool systems inside the house that you never need to interact with. If it was actually difficult to generate queens and required a bit more work, it would be fun.

It's been a while since we've had one. I just started Psychonauts up last night after seeing a thread about it, it's been like 13 years since I played the version GameTap had for PC. The Xbox port is great and loading off the hard drive makes the load screens take one or two seconds, it's crazy how fast it is.

What have you been playing or working on with your original Xbox? What kind of set up are you running? Looking for any patches or mods for your games?

Probably this:

>Another difference is the character Holly wears an all-new costume this time and the character Clarissa wears her original costume from the Japanese arcade version (basically the same except it is more revealing than the costume used for the western versions).

from https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/OutRun_2

Dunno for sure though, I never played it and there is no tcrf entry for the XBox version of the game

You may not like it but this is what peak performance looks like:

>highly interactive world
>NPCs more or less as convincing as modern ones
>branching storyline which can be completed in non-linear fashion
>tons of easter eggs and side quests
>positive and relevant moral messaging even after all these decades

>The game has aged like milk,
What is that supposed to mean?
>>
>>7332276
It might have been revolutionary at the time but now it feels extremely dated, primitive and lacking. Still an OK game in my opinion though
>>
>>7332316
How is it no longer revolutionary? Was there another game that did overworld exploration like that inserted before it?
It was primitive in 1981, it was written in BASIC. If it wasn't lacking then the sequels should have turned out differently.

No one else made RPGs for the Apple][ until Lord Britty made one. He was the pioneer.
No nihonese did it, no real britbongs did it, no other murikan fag did it. It was LB. He was the first.

But yes, it aged like milk. That's what the term means.

I think the "RPG for Americans" meant "American console audience". Square had decided against releasing FFV for the SNES thinking it would be too advanced for American Nintendo players, but considered a DOS port.

No. RNG in this game almost guarantees you'll die at least once before the end.

Team rocket the organization is in Red/Blue/Green. If you're referring to James/Jesse/Meowth they're only in Yellow.
>>
>>7332238
Fellas, you need to distinguish between "Team Rocket Grund with a whip" and "Team Rocket consisting of Jesse James and a fucking talking cat", you're confusing the zoomers

For me, it has to be Karnov´s revenge. Its so shit and fun at the same time.
