What are some good Vania rom hacks to play /vr/?

top kek. i choke the upload speed so it never seeds to begin with
It's a one hour game. Spend an extra hour to learn how to play it. Jumps don't have a date you lazy piece of shit.
>this is for smart people/adults
That's the thing about dumb people today. In the past they knew they were dumb. Now every retard is oblivious to the fact and make threads like OP.

i swear this game commanded as much reverence as Ocarina of Time did on release. i remember following it from code name Project Ego all the way to release, those screenshots, and the interactive adobe flash visual novel application.

the music in this game is legendary, the gameplay is intuitive, it's the first game that comes to mind when someone mentions their comfort, or comfy game. it's totally a saturday morning cartoon video game. effortlessly immersive.
it's pretty fun and the boast system is cool, and its good/evil stuff is fun to play around with. I still never played TLC but I always feel like it's just missing a little more to do in each area. Like when you complete a region, apart from a few demon doors, why would you revisit them?

I totally get the criticism of this game but I loved it at the time. Except for the jumping parts. Fuck that.

The idea for you being sent to a world where there is no virtues was a pretty interesting one but the execution was terrible.
Beat it without the jumping fix and still loved it. I see it's flaws now, but I'll always have fond memories.
I tried doing this and started getting chunks of the splash that wouldn't go away. I gave up after a while.
I remember there was another woman you could kill without triggering that fire dude. I always got her house.

I've wanted to play this game for a long while and finally had the opportunity to do it. It's never talked much at all compared to other early Mario games like Donkey Kong or Mario Bros. The same year Super Mario Bros. released which set Mario's course.

And damn I REALLY enjoyed this game. Why does no one talk about it? It's a puzzle game where you have to destroy all the walls for demolition to complete each stage. This is way easier said then done due to the unforgiving, relentless pursuit of all the enemies in the game as you must find out how to navigate each stage (called "Phases") to do it successfully without also accidentally trapping yourself. Mario not only also cannot jump like in Donkey Kong but the normal swing of your hammer doesn't hurt or slow down most enemies. And if you stick around in one spot for too long Fireballs will spawn from the opposite end of the stage and begin traveling towards your direction, so if you didn't move by then you're going to get scorched.

There's so much to keep track of in this game sometimes that it's nuts. In fact by the end there were still some mechanics I never quite understood, mainly because of the panic I didn't have time to. While I had fun, never has a Mario game made me also seethe. This game is not easy and there are times where the solution was way above my tiny brain in being able to figure out. It was a common occurrence to be stuck on a single phase just trying to figure out what is the strategy. Of all the 100 Phases to complete, I've had to look up a hint or the entire solution for 5 of them:

>Phase 65
>Phase 74
>Phase 80
>Phase 91
>Phase 95

It was fun watching Arino play this one.
I was born in 1980, but somehow I've gotten this far without ever even seeing a screenshot of this game. Weird. It does look potentially fun, so I will download a ROM and play it eventually.
I've got that physical and it's one of the black box games I never played growing up but now that I've got my own copy I've grown to love it. It's really underrated.
First time hearing about this game, will check out.
Man I fucking loved this game.

What are some good Retro Western RPGs?
I already played Gothic and KOTOR is Morrowind any Good? im a Zoomer never played Morrowind before
9 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
First question: 2 or 3D?
Morrowind has day/night cycles too, unless you're referring to NPC behaviour.
>Check out Planescape Torment
>It got remastered by Beamdog
Any infinity engine game
Might and Magic series (not heroes of)
arcanum is pure jank but if you can get past that it's playable
risen is an updated gothic
if you want to go really old, betrayal at krondor, pool of radiance, dark sun.
Morrowind and all the other elder scrolls games aren't actually rpgs but just adventure games with a stat system
Easy anon. the torment remaster is somehow the only one they didn't fuck up. No lgbtnpc self-inserts, no clumsily jamming a game into a different engine while completely fucking up the balance. It just does what it's supposed to. I know it kinda sucks to support them after all that, but at least they did their jobs for once.

Choro thread, choroggers.

Been into this series lately, there's just something about modding SD toy cars with stuff and seeing how they do on the racetrack that's a simple joy. Depending on the game you're modding your cars into supertanks and boats, too, which is all kinds of awesome. Somehow translation patches for the PS1 games have been fairly frequent: one's in the works for 4/Wonderful now. I only got to try 2 and was turned off by how freaking easy it is to spin out, which sucked cus I loved the aesthetic/music. It's probably better when you don't have to struggle with shit steering but even the first races were absolute bullshit. Handling's fine in other games.

Stuff I know that's rad that I've tried:
Road Trip/Choro Q! (GC) - semi reboot, has Mario Kart powerups and Micro Machines-esque 'big' environments.
Road Trip Adventure/Choro Q HG2 (PS2) - the friggin' open world one. Essential Chorocore.
Gadget Racers/Road Trip Shifting Gears/Choro Q Advance 1+2 (GBA) - comfy Mode 7 racers with weapons and boat/plane/tank leagues

Found out about one simply called 'Choro Q' even in the west that's more open world (it's HG4 in Japan) - meant to try that out. Also a frickin' Wii one for those with a tiltsteering soft spot.

Is that a chibi S2000 on the cover?
The handling in HG4 is similiar to the PSX games.
Yeah, that's what the series is about.
I saw some of the toys at Toys R Us the other day and I was wondering if the games were any good. I think I heard that black guy who's friends with Metal Jesus talk about them before but I've never looked into it.
damn, I thought they all did that. then yea, HG2 is the GOAT then
The PSX games have a smaller hub-world you can drive through

>It makes the idea of carrying spells around stupid.
I've never done a no-junction playthrough but saw a streamer do it up to the final boss. It can be done but you're relying on RNG a lot and hoping Ultimecia doesn't cast apocalypse on you.

but here's the twist. Did you like it?

For me, not really.

Played the tomba demo so many times I memorized the entire thing, then played the full game and gave up after I left the first zone
Played a lot of BZ2, but never the first.
Absolutely loved it and still playing it from time to time. Getting the ball rolling is genuinely challenging, but once you do that, the game is super-fun. Highlights include shit like buying some resource at a bargain price, move to other town, then another, then another, still looking for really good price, once you eventually roll to the town you've bought the merchandise in the first place, only to find it being in super-deficit and with high demand with the shit you've bought a month earlier.
Highly recommended game.
Oh my fucking god, I've been looking for this game for years and asked here several times to no avail, and now I find it by pure chance.
I remember playing this on an arcade cabinet once in a bowling alley once
I believe on Amiga that was called SWIV and wasn't obscure or underrated at all.

>All of that and no real cultural knowledge of how to store all these libraries of material
Lmfao you act like they were in the Stone Age and said this on a board filled with manchildren who hoard thousands of dollars worth of plastic entertainment in their “man cave”.
Cultural knowledge of how to store material? That doesn’t even fucking make sense. Some people are minimalist, some people aren’t, that’s how it fucking is you autistic idiot.

Can't believe the original leak links are still active, lol.
>Queen 3

It's the one with the twist things that spin you around, also you get bumped by all kinds of assholes all the time, right before turns on the narrow spots.

Seriously, fuck this track, it destroyed a perfectly fine Queen Master run.
Although I must admit I have forgotten all of the tracks, so if I practiced for a week or so I could probably beat that shit.
But my thumb hurts.
>But my thumb hurts.
Lol there's so much A button mashing you need a controller with minimum travel on button presses to avoid an RSI.
I am playing on GBA.
It's just not made for adult hands, and I already have small women hands.

Is Knight of Lodis good?
Play it and find out for yourself
ouch, those (comparatively) low sales levels for Mario 2 and Yoshi's Island are really shocking to me, especially the former.
>even when you're not playing it, you're playing it
jesus what a mouthful of a slogan, no wonder the gamecube never really caught on, the advertising for this was abysmal.
I wonder what the reaction to these were back then, I bet it would have been a bit disappointing that out of the three revealed pokemon, only one was truly interesting (duskull) after so much waiting.
gotta hand it to melee, it really did provide a "killer app" that the gamecube desperately needed. I don't think any other game from it has nearly as much of a huge fanbase to this day.
This looks strange, anime wrestling russian chess? Might emulate it just to see how it is.
I love this ad so much, the internet is sorely lacking fun interfaces like this these days.
>Golden Sun best in-game dialogue
Well, it's definitely "most" dialogue, I don't know about best, lol
It has a lot of yes/no questions, that apparently makes it good.
