SFA3's music is great and it was nice hearing something other than remakes of SF2 songs where only one (Ken's) was any good. Most of the non-remake songs are pretty dull except for Rose's and Charlie's. Most everyone's A3 themes are either on par with their A2 themes while some (like Gen, Dan and Birdie) are way better. Only truly bad song is Dee Jay and it's fucking Dee Jay, who cares?

I played through both quests of Zelda 1 two times in a row in the span of two days. Why? Because I need recommendations so I can finally stop playing it and try something else. Let's discuss early action-adventure games

Time to delve into the rabbit hole that is Zelda Classic, OP. Go to PureZC and try out some fan quests. A lot of them are shit but there's a handful that are excellent. Personal recommendations are:
Link and Zelda: Panoply of Calatia
Zelda's Butt
Link's Quest for the Hookshot 2
The Depths of Malice
A Link to the Shadows
In the Lost Kingdom of the Banana Blood God
Mike's Funhouse (save this one after you get more familiar with some of the shit people pull in Zelda Classic)
The Slipstream
Quest 744
Isolation

every once in a while i remember fightcade exists and spend a few hours on it. i'm not good at fighting games but the novelty of watching two brazillians play sf3 and having the inputs piped over the internet into a game running on my computer hasn't worn off yet. also got some games of tgm2 last night which was fun
what do yall play on fightcade?

Any PSU you can get the proper stable specs out of to match the rails on the system will work, technically.
The PS2 has a 4-prong interconnect between the mobo and PSU board though. Slims have the PSU as part of the external plug.

Check out Marie, Elie and Anis no Atelier. Your former teacher tasks you with making books for the academy's library over the course of 5 years. You start with the two main characters of the franchise's first two games, Marie and Elie, and can have them act independently of each other. It's pretty cool seeing one lead a party of adventurers to a mountain to gather synthesis material while the other is slaving away over the alchemy pot at home to meet a request deadline.

"In an interview shortly before this show, Capcom senior planner Shinji Mikami stated that it would be impossible to convert Street Fighter III to any of the home consoles then on the market.[8]"

You're telling me New Generation couldn't have worked on the Saturn with the 4mb expansion? Regardless of people's feeling toward the game, not porting it for years was a death sentence.

Where are you getting upbeat and happy vibes from Super Metroid? To me, that game hits heavier than anything else in the series and carries that atmosphere from beginning to end.
>>
>>8931667
SOTN has xp-based leveling and random drops. Still a great game, but much more annoying and unfulfilling to replay as a result of these trash CRPG mechanics.

The game has back ground life, many of the enemies are indifferent creatures. Some of the enemies are comical. There are little helpers. And baby metroid wants to help her momma. Not exactly as dreary as Castlevania. I'm not complaining it is a very light story. Nintendo often does a fine job of telling light stories, through action not words.

Castlevania isn't dreary at all, it's campy Monster Mash Halloween shit. Not a bad thing that's just how it is.

As someone with a PSIO, ignore the PSIO. The maker Matt is a real cunt piece of shit. He’s been promising an update to support the Memcard Pro for almost a year now, but is too butthurt over Chinese pirates and obsessed with DRM that he still hasn’t released it.

I'm saying from a consumer's perspective (kids and parents) rather than a "gamer's" perspective. VF was the better series early on, but PS looked to be a better deal since it looked to have a game as good plus tons more. Simiarily, the PS had games that looked as good on the surface as the N64 (Crash, Spyro, Ape Escape, etc) even if the N64 had more technically impressive platform titles.

>>8933895
If you look up the "Japan only Saturn" lists, it's all really neat 2D games. Very niche for the 90's though.
