also just obscure gems on psx
Holy fuck I've been trying to figure out what this game was for YEARS. All I remember is playing the demo of it once on one of those old PSX demo discs and that it involved setting traps to dudes dudes and you played as a young girl or vampire or something?
Not really obscure, but probably forgotten.
You played as a girl who was raised by vampires/blue skinned people. You go around setting traps because people keep coming to attack you and destroy the house. Pretty neat, especially the various traps you unlocked depending on what you bought and how the story had branching paths depending on what you did during the missions.
The sequel (Deception 3) did even more story stuff and took you to a bunch of different castles for the trap-making.
Threads of Fate is hardly forgotten my me, Anon.
Stop saying words like "Adored" and "Gorgeous" when you're describing games, you just sound like faggot.
Thank to Tatsunoko vs. Capcom, I remembered about this game. I had completeñy forgotten about it.
Too bad I never finished the game because the version I played as a kid was completely in Japanese
Apparently this was popular enough to warrant a sequel.
it's threads like this where you can post this image
You have a flying island, two planes, sanic fast jetpack and beautiful endless sky around you. The only problem exploding bugs led by a wizard are coming for your ass and it ain't gonna be easy to kill them.
I'm trying to play the first Deception after an anon suggested it yesterday. And I'm having a lot of trouble getting into it. Do I have to actually walk up to a trap to trigger it? Can I trigger it from afar or maybe have it trigger when someone walks over it?
>Learn the instagib B-A-B-A combo for Ignatius
>Use it on literally everything thereafter
Not him, but 'adored' is not a complex word, it just makes you sound like an asshole.
I really mean this in the least offensive way.
Who remembers this fucking GEM right here
Tecmo's Deception (the first game) was fairly different. You setup traps in the castle before things began, traps cost "money", and they were single-use. You also stood next to the trap to activate it, and held down the button to keep it active. When it was done, you had the option to sell the victim for gold or kill them for their soul.
Rather than a pre-set characters each round, you instead choose who you'd like to attract from classes like merchants, knights, and so on. You also went and customized your castle as the game progress, and unlocked stuff like monsters. I just thought the game was okay, but you might as well check it out.
There are also two more games of the series, both like Deception 2/3 rather than Tecmo's Deception. One is Trapt on the PS2 and the other is the recent Deception 4 on the Vita.
HOLY SHIT I USED TO PLAY THE SHIT OUT OF THIS GAME AS A KID. I thought it was the most bad ass thing ever, now i have to find a rom and replay it.
Thank you kind anon :3
Played this game a ton as a kid. Actually unlocked everything and maxed out every character. I'd kill for a remake.
The first Tecmo's Deception is a lot different than the other games in the series, as mentioned >>257060083 You do need to activate the trap manually and then stand next to it to drain their HP. There is a range on the traps, so you can't be too far away to trigger them. I don't fully recall the mechanics, but in general killing characters gave you money for more traps, while taking their souls was generally used for summoning monsters.
Did anybody else play this? It's a real gem of a game.
>using cheats to make every swing chop a monster's limb off
>that cheat that let's you paly as all the monsters in the game
>tfw unlimited items cheat and usking that skull item that causes monsters to fight eachother and betting on who would win your your brother
FUCKING GOAT AS FUCK
I remember playing some frogger like game on the xbox where you play as a cricket with electricity powers fighting a giant hawk or something. I also remember after beating the final boss you saw a closeup of his asshole. Don't remember the game though, but I've never found any information on it online.
Everyone I ask doesn't seem to know of it's existence. It was really fun.
I played all the way through this. Only got three of the six really big summons, although I hardly needed them. The only magic I really ever used was healing, and between that and stringing together all the combos, was able to get through the game fully.
My only complaint was that after a few hours, the whole combo system got very old very quickly. Maybe if they kept the list in-game it would've been more bearable, but trying to "find" any combo beyond a length of 4 was just not worth it. The best attacks anyways were just Up, Down, Up, Down, Up, Down, etc. (different for each character) thanks to that stringing together combos most efficiently.
I had no idea what the fuck to do in this game so I just flew around casting spells.
I only came in here to call everyone casuals because I figured it wasn't going to be posted.
I was never able to beat it though I think the game got to hard for me towards the end I think,
The first game is pretty much entirely different from the rest. It plays almost like a side-game for the others, with somewhat familiar elements but really different gameplay.
I'd say play the rest in order first (2, 3, Trapt, 4) and then give the first a try when finished or bored, to see if you like it. That way, you won't be disappointed with it partway through playing the rest, and won't be disappointed by the others if it turns out you prefer the first over them.
Yes, it was a cheap Mario Kart knockoff.
No, it wasn't as good as Mario Kart
Yes, I loved playing it anyways. And given that I had both, that's saying something. I really loved this and Chocobo's Dungeon 2, and was kind of disappointed that Dice de Chocobo never appeared in English.
Yes, I picked up Chocobo Tales on DS and Chocobo's Dungeon on Wii as well.
Some anons helped me remember this game a few years back.
There is one other PS1 I've had trouble remembering for years. Doesn't help that the only stuff I think I remember about it is vague as shit and all of the titles that might fit don't seem to be it.
I certainly hope you people remember this.
If not, I pity you.
the fact that i hadn't seen a single reference, screenshot, video, or any such bullshit in any thread or anywhere in my time online until one of those threads which was "describe an obscure childhood game as best as you can that you forget the name of" where i found out it was "brave fencer musashi" means that yes it was goddamn obscure
AWWWW YEAH MY NIGGA
But it DID keep a list of all your discovered arts in the game. All you had to do with hit triangle when you were doing the inputs and it would bring up the list of discovered arts. In the early parts yeah the up down up ones were easiest but as you progressed more interesting ones opened up if you actually looked.
Cool your jets hothead, I don't think it's obscure. Whenever it gets brought up, everyone knows about it.
This is because it came with a demo for Final Fantasy VIII, and people shit on it now because VIII was pretty lame, but at the time no one knew that and everyone bought it, and it turned out Brave Fencer Musashi was better than FFVIII demo or even the full game.
Never met another living soul who's so much as even heard of this game.
My favorite pick-up-and-play PS1 game of all time.
One of the characters (Noa, if I recall) had a combo that was just up-down-up, so just making her imput up-down-up-down-up was the best damage she did outside specials. One of the other characters, Vahn I think, had one that was right-down-right or two which linked together in a similar fashion, so you could just keep pounding on everything with him as well.
I seem to recall that Gala wasn't as effective that way, which was disappointing, as Gala was a great party member otherwise. That was okay though, because he still had great magic anyways and could just heal everyone at the end of a round.
It's been awhile since I played the game, though, so I'm probably forgetting some details.
Motherfucking Destrega. I love how you can transition from ranged magic combat to melee combat depending on how close you are to your enemy.
This was a pretty fun action game back on the PS1.
Shame about the sequel
Also Galerians was like some sort of parasite eve/akira hybrid where you played a psychic kid and could kill people pretty gruesomely. You had to take a drug to keep using your powers or you'd lose health though
Yeah, Gala had a shorter bar in general so he couldn't make huge combos but he made up for it in raw damage and short specials. It was worth it to give him the accessories that boosted Spirit or whatever it was that increased the bar size. I think Gala had a lot of guard crushing moves too so enemy blocks didn't mean much.
I replayed it about a year and a half ago and it's a lot more fun when you're actually old enough to grasp mechanics and shit. Like, I feel that way about a lot of games really. So much just went over my head when I was younger.
maybe /v/ remembers this game, but no one i know IRL knows about this shit save for my older brother who actually was the one that rented it from Blockbuster back when PS1 came out.
I doubt I'm the only one, but Guardian's Crusade was such a charming JRPG no one remembers because PS1 was full to the brim when it came to that particular genre. Those fucking 70 Toys, man.
goddamnit you nostalgia bombed me. i remember this so hard it hurts me.
Multiplats count? It was no CTR, but still a damn good racing game with a lot to unlock and a nice risk vs reward stunt system that actually impacted race performance.
I know it's big news since the screwed up DS release, but I wonder how many people played Rhapsody on the PS1.
I remember trying a demo once. It was some sort of side scrolling platformer, similar to oddworld in that you mostly avoided traps. The difference is that when you died it was always shown and really gory and would also say the way you got killed like eviscerated, or decapitated.
Maybe it wasnt psx, I though it was on a demo disc for it though.
I'm sure this game isnt real though, its never shown itself again so I could just have a faulty memory.
Super advanced for its time in terms of the openness of the world, ability to pick how you want to fight and over 100 characters to recruit to your party.
Plus actually awesome story and decent endgame and replay value with ng+ and another half of main story (at one point about halfway through the game you make a choice to side with one group or another, from that point onward the game is drastically different depending on your choice, everything from your party composition to your main city hub changes, as well as your ending of course)
nigga, we played point and click adventures on ps1. with a gamepad. it's about as pleasant as it sounds.
>playing through this game
>fuck those cheap deaths and kills from opponents
>game ends if killed
>game ends if lose race
>don't feel like playing through the game repeatedly just to learn the tracks
>reload from last save whenever exploding
>do this repeatedly
>finally finish the last track
>get message you get when you've entered a cheat code
Fuck it, I beat the game. That's what counts.
Not really obscure but i had forgot the name for a long while
I still need to play that. And while PS1 games emulate easy enough and it does have a PSN version, finding a physical copy has proven quite difficult where I live, as I prefer those for games/series I enjoy.
I liked In Cold Blood, but I didn't like the fact it was meant to be a P&C adventure where they always gave you a gun and made violence part of the solution. Methodical puzzling and action segments don't really mix that well together when enemies can surprise you.
I had this when I was like 8 or 9. Holy fuck is it mysterious. You run around finding out clues about your own murder and other peoples murders, with a clock in the corner counting down to zero. And when that happens you get stabbed in the fucking back by an unknown phantom
To my young self it was horrifying and the fact I don't have it anymore makes it that much more spooky
This fucking game. I've never beatin it.
legend of mana was pure graphical perversion and probably the best looking 2d game on the system
ps1 gems are cool because they aren't as old as console but also there's a good chance they're only on the ps1...
it's like finding gems in the pc games bargain bin
Actually found this one at the local rental store.
I know. I fucking hate square enix.
I also played the shit out of this game when I was a kid. It came out just as the monster breeding/catching genre was going through its early phase. Was fun but I dunno how well it holds up.
God I still think that game is gorgeous, though I think Saga frontier 2 beats it out on background art.
I played this shit when i was fucking 9 god damn years old.
Someone owes me an apology and a fucking explanation.
I'm sure everyone has played the demo, but no one has played the full version
Hard to find good screens to back my opinion up though.
Uh, sorry man. That fucking sucks. If you can i'd suggest playing it at least. Sorry about your friend though.
Replaying this game right now. Wish we got a modern version of it.
>I know. I fucking hate square enix.
Funny how Square-soft and Early Square-Enix could be pretty damn good, while modern Square-Enix just sucks, having killed off or made various series mobile only (SaGa, Chrono, World of Mana), while pretty much just localizing Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts in the west anymore (while giving stuff like Dragon Quest the shaft). In addition while they had a good deal of stand alone games in the past (BFM, Threads of Fate, Xenogears, Radiata Stories), they seem to only do them rarely now (like with TWEWY).
reason why I got a multitap. so many great mini games.
Yeah. Growing up squaresoft was a massive part of my childhood. I loved all of their games I played. Now? I dunno. It just kinda hurts looking at them. It's like... I dunno. You grew up with a really great uncle but as time went on he just started letting things go and got really weird and when you see him now he's not doing so good even if he tries to bring back some of that old glory like bravely default.
Awesome rhytmic game, you can put your Audio CD's and play with them.
mfw not even anyone on /v/ has heard of one of my favorite psx games from childhood
Look n gais. It hurts okay. But look. The gais you love are still around . I'm all about crying over SE brand milk but think about it,
-The Last Story
The big ones that brought you in are still alive and kicking just with different names.
I know it's not the same but dont give up.
Square Enix is where the whole JRPG industry died if ya think about it.
I still have this one. The last time I started up a game, something seemed to have happened and the water amulet for the fountain didn't show up like it was supposed to.
Ah well, it's been a long time since I last played anyways. I'd probably be restarting when getting back to it anyways.
Look mang, I know that. The devs are still out there for the most part, but it's just, its a nostalgiafag thing.
Getting home from school to eagerly play the FF4 you rented at blockbuster, getting really stocked that you got FF6 for your birthday. Playing secret of mana, getting in tears because your mom got you a PS1 for your birthday and your grandma got you FF7, then continuing to grow a bit older each year with lotsa squaresoft games to paly along the way. Xenogears, einhander, chocobos dungeon 2, the FF series, threads of fate, parasite eve 1/2, etc.
And they were all made by the same people so it was like some sort of quality seal.
This was all almost twenty years ago. I'm a lot older now, it's just simpler times and missing them I guess.
Okay i'm being a faggot now i'm sorry.
I know that. It's still just kind of sad to see that happen to a company and their series. Especially when out of the various RPG series started in third, fourth, and fifth gen, there's not a huge amount that are still around (others like Wild Arms, Breath of Fire, Koudelka/Shadow Hearts being dead at this point), with some like Dragon Quest that might as well be considered in the west as far as actual releases/localizations go now.
Don't remind me anon. WA3 is one of my favorite RPG's.
Yah. I get ya. If my favorite series wasn't still kickin' I'd feel the same way. Who am I kiddin'. It just aint the same.
NO. DON'T YOU FUCKING CALL YOURSELF A FAGGOT FOR SUCH FOND MEMORIES. I have such a damn similar experince, except me and my bro worked up cash every so often and split among certain RPGs, renting games from blockbuster and weeding out goods from greats. It truly was a Seal of Quality back then, something that people who play games nowadays can't possible know about. I feel nothing but pity for this new generation. Hold on to those memories as dearly as you can, for you are among the blessed for having them.
Fur ran the item store, from >>257067490
Here is your Selfi.
Still surprised it hasn't found it's way to the PSN considering it's a fan favorite as far as the series goes. On that note, apparently someone didn't even care enough to get Wild Arms 2 in the right category there. It's not in the RPG section like the first game, but rather over in the action section instead.
Oh well, not like it's hard to find the third game to begin with, nor is it expensive. ACF, on the other hand...
Xseed said the PS2 wild arms were really hard for the PS3 to emulate so they won't be doing it.
Virginia is mai waifu
>had a multitap and this game
>me, my friend and my grandmother played it every other weekend
>gran eventually got better than us and would absolutely destroy us
>would ask her if she could get us some food or a drink so we could sink her ship
>would refuse to get us anything after that until she beat us again in the next match
Loved that game.
At least Tales, Atelier, SMT, and YS are still around as far as western localizations, while Dragon Quest and Legend of Heroes are still coming out if you can into moon. Not sure if it's good or bad that Final Fantasy's still around, given the quality some of the recent entries like the XIII games (people do seem to like Type-0 and FFIV DS as far as last gen Final Fantasy releases go though).
>dem awesome tracks
>driving off the edge of a table as an ice cream truck playing the music
Fucking loved this shit.
Is the case for why most PS2 RPGs aren't on the PSN? If so, I guess that might answer why DQ VIII isn't on there either (better than Square-Enix just not giving a fuck, I suppose).
Still, I suppose it hits some games harder than others to not have a PSN release. The first Shadow Hearts is about $50 these days, and Wild Arms ACF ranges from $45-60.
I wouldn't exactly consider Breath of Fire 6 to be the rebirth of the series, given it's a fucking mobile title.
As I recall the point of that image was that one of the main guys that worked on Wild Arms has now been working on Symphogear, hence the "passing of the torch" sort of image.
Beat the whole damn game too. Loved the big ass round knights.
I got around 2/3 of the way through, if getting characters is any indication of progression. Clerics and wolves were the best companions.
Not exactly a PS1 game, though.
Why haven't we seen this one anywhere but the Dreamcast, Sega?
Oh, that's right. Sega is ignoring anything that isn't Sonic.
from my demo disc
At least Skies of Arcadia got a Gamecube port. But yeah, Sega can be pretty stupid. I mean, they can make and publish good games, but a lot of times they mishandle them through poor marketing or low prints, or don't make eventual ports, or fuck around with the sequels not understanding what made the original so enjoyable (like Valkyria Chronicles 2 compared to the first game), or generally just plain forgetting a franchise exists.
I have heard they actually did a pretty nice job on that Sega Collection on the PS3 and 360 though.
has anyone tried talking like him by pinching your nose
Wish I could still find someone to play it with. But not only is it hard for me to try to get anyone to do multiplayer games these days, but I'm sure Hot Wheels isn't too high on the list of things people are apt to want to play at this age.
This and the second one, Return to Arms are two the best games for playing with friends especially if you had the multi tap for 4 player.
I only got to play it with other people a few times. If i want to guess i have at least a thousand hours from just single player alone.
>have a best roommate ever
>we find good/bad/strange games and play them for shits and giggles
>we shoot the shit, make jokes, good times are had
>want to make youtube content through this
>don't have a capture card
>no money for one
>can't capture through emulator's because weak-ass computer
enough is never enough anon
if you've played this you win obscurity.
I had this. My dad was buddies with a guy who owned a cafe we went to pretty regularly. When he found out I was nuts he gave me a stack of ps1 games and demo disks. Fucking score dude.
Played the fuck out of it.
>playing in a low level party of iksars fighting through kurn's tower
>manage to descend to the lowest level of the basement
>momentarily panic when i hit a zone line down there only to discover it's a secret exit out with no way back in from there.
>everyone starts to wonder where i went while they get swarmed by like a dozen greater icebones
i just started playing on the p99 servers and the nostalgia is overwhelming, so far the general community has been really nice and i enjoy playing it again but without SOE to ruin it.
Champions of Norrath and BG Dark Alliance pretty much summarize my early teens.
Also, Blazing Dragons.
I always feel like I'm the only one who played this game. Did anyone else love it as much as I did?
I don't think many people have played it. It's quite a nice puzzle platformer, if I remember correctly.
Can't remember how many times I died in this game, accidentally freezing myself and smashing on the ground below.
Shit man, I had two multitaps, but I rarely used even one. Me and my buddy would gather damn near every Friday for a year and pull all-nighters cooping that fucker. Those games were our shit.
I'll contribute a couple I never hear anybody talk about: Impossible Creatures and Ring of Red. I don't ever recall actually finishing RoR, but I know I loved it.
Blaze and Blade: Eternal Quest
God damn this game. Ugly as hell, but fun like the ride never ends. Played this with my brother for so many hours and we never made it through. Like 10 years later, I got myself a MultiTap invited 3 friends and we marathoned it while we had summer holidays. Some of my best and worst gaming memories ever.
I loved this game.
As soon as I read 'only games you remember' I thought Nightmare Creatures 2. Game was fucking weird.
Played the SHIT out of that on one of the PSX demos.
I had a nokia phone with an N-Gage application on it. I can't remember but I think I pirated a whole bunch of games - there was some interesting stuff in there. Pic related is an OK game.
I don't know if someone knows this but there was a demo of a game I played but I can't remember what its called.
It was pirated themed and you were on beach. I think you needed to collect gems and there was a boss fight in a cave.
Dunno if anyone knows the name of it?
Not so obscure, but it was a good 3D beat 'em up.
God I miss this genre.
This is for the same system, and it's the first MGS game I played. It's not terrible and it's got a couple of unique features, like using the camera to select the colour of your camo. I don't remember much of the story, all I remember is that it's a VR sim and Snake proves Snake is Snake by telling Otacon he pissed himself.
Could someone help me find a game?
It was a Pirates strategic vidya, from the early 90's I think, it was RPG with dice rolling for combats, and you could search for treasures and such.
>Playing this 4 player with friends when I was a kid
now that I think of it, I've never seen any posts about this game in all the years I've been here
Wanted that, ended up getting Monkey Hero by mistake instead. I ended up liking it.
Mmmm, I wonder if anyone else played this, it was awesome.
BFM is damn underrated IMO. I'd put it on par with the LoZ series. This was back when Square could actually make a decent game, and they were fucking awesome at it.
Still one of my top favorite games.
The whole being able to add guns to your sides was a neat mechanic.
The PS1 had so many obscure games that were fucking awesome.
Danm loved this series...its a shame they tryed to catter for more sales going full anime on it...the dark tones of the first ones are one of th things that make those games interesting.
The final boss you have to take advantage of a broken game mechanic with the time spell and town scroll spells just to beat him. Fucking comfy ass game, though.
HOLY SHIT I remember these
my entry is pic related
>tfw you will never pull off a combo this sick
holy fuck im surrounded by 12 year olds.
This game was fucking epic. Once you get passed the shitty stages at the start you have to collect Mana by killing creatures, tagging the mana with spells and then create a castle, you then continue killing creatures and other magic carpet guys to get more mana until your castle is ownage.
yeah man, on my good ol' c64.
cant beleive my mum threw it away after i moved out
>all dose games
>all dose memories
Originally introduced to this through a Playstation Underground demo disc.
also pic related, just picked it up again today and it's way harder than I remember, mainly because i'm not used to the controles anymore
anyone else ever heard of this? live action cutscenes if I recall, but my PS2 doesn't get past the cutscenes so I haven't played it in forever
idk man maybe not that obscure but i feel it was so underrated
Fuck I remember going to my buddy's house and him showing me that first level. Shit was crazy good looking.
I still don't know what the fuck is up with his running animation. It looks like his legs are broken but he's still able to run
Micro Maniacs is one of the best local multiplayer games I have played. So much fun to play with brothers and friends, yet frankly I have never found anyone to speak about this game
played all of them
me and my lucky friend did. Actually I give him it few weeks ago to play it on his PS3. Awesome game. Much easier now with 22 years old.
Fighter Force anyone?
>Always pick the 2x2 gorila
>tfw 10 yo and throwing car engines to enemies
Bet none of you fags played this amazing game
Machine Hunter anyone?
anyone remember this? it was actually a pretty cool game
I-I had that
My brother stole and sold it for about £1 to some pawn shop
>my face RIGHT FUCKING NOW
>There will never again be a time when video games were so new & amazing as the PS1 era
YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW LONG I HAVE BEEN TRYING TO REMEMBER THIS GAME.
SEVERAL YEARS, AND IT'S FINALLY OVER.
Friend owned this game, it was a shockingly complex puzzle game were you control like 4 different characters with different skills. Also had some really terrible 3rd person shooting randomly tossed in.
I hated this game.
AND I STILL HATE IT.
And I couldn't stop playing it.
Deception series is fucking awesome.
These games need more recognition.
New one is fantastic, too.
Rented this and played it with my brother on PS2.
>Get to the end of the game
I think it was anyway
>Need all 4 characters to push 4 buttons at the same time
>Robot falls into a pit but didn't die

>Last save was too long ago so we just give up
When I returned to school after the winter break, I noticed that all the cool kids had another interest: Hacky sacking. It was a simple sport consisting of kicking a bean-sack into the air as many times as you can without it landing on the floor. They all had hacky sacks, and they would spend recess and lunch kicking them with each other, since skateboarding wasn’t allowed on school grounds. I didn’t have a hacky sack, and I decided that I needed to do something about that. Mother took me to the store Pac Sun where I got a hacky sack with an orange and green design. When we got home from the mall, I started practicing. I remember struggling with it first, but I spent the next few afternoons concentrating on getting good at it. I spent many hours well into the night practicing in my backyard.
Once I was able to kick the hacky sack properly, I made a big deal of the fact that I was now interested in it. I would go up to the group of cool kids and show off my skills, and I played with it every single minute I spent outside during school time.
I never finished the game as a kid.
Man, there's a ton of great games in this thread.
But here's one of my absolute favorites that I never see posted.
This is a mech action game with lite dating sim elements, and it has character artwork and beautiful anime cutscenes by Masakazu Katsura (Video Girl AI).
It's easily the most technically impressive PS1 game I've EVER played. The game throws you in against huge boss fights taking place in large, fully animated cities with trains, buildings, cars, etc, and absolutely EVERYTHING is fully destructible in just about one hit, without dipping into performance. Combine to this that it's a fully dual analog game that controls great, all of the bosses are creative and well-designed, and the girls are sexy, and it's damn near a perfect game.
Only two problems:
It's only 45 minutes long
To get any of the secret endings, you need to know Japanese well enough to succeed at the dating sim bit.
Either way, highly recommended to everyone, even if you don't speak a word of Japanese.
This game was so fucking fun man, I mite emulate it for some nostalgia.
Devil Dice was the shit
I'm about 5 hours into WA3 and i'm not finding anything super special about it, it's kinda fun I guess but enemy variety is a little low and characters don't seem to have much depth
The atmosphere and music are really great though
No one EVER mentions this but me
Man, how on earth do people still honestly believe the N64 was a better console than the PS1?
The PS1 is just absolutely filled with great games and hidden gems, and the N64 has maybe 10 games worth playing. And two of the absolute best ones for it are Japanese. And the best NA-released game, nobody played anyway.
I just don't get it.
Meh I think a lot of people played it but where I grew up I was the only one who had it.
I got my PSX used able to play burned CDs with over 100games but the dude I bought it from took real bad care of it and only like 20 CDs were playable. also me being 10 or 11 and not speaking english didn't help. evenetually I stopped playing because I didn't know where to go any more I think.
The whole game is basically resident evil with dinos.
I really don't understand why this game is obscure as it is. It's just so damn good. It even stood out among other RPGs at the time due to the different battle system.
Also I think I spent like 3 days in Tower of Sol as a kid (but I'm guessing it's not actually anything special, just that I was impressed easier back then)
so, I remember playing a demo on the ps1 back in the days where you played as a woman with a huge sword walking around in a creepy dungeon. you fought men, it was really hard and you could find food on the floor. does anyone remember the name of that game?
Yeah i still have this and Dino Crisis 2 from way back when, Regina seriously had the best body on PS1, everyone knew about Lara Croft but she only looked good in CG
Regina had hips n ass all the way through.
As a kid I learned that there can be bad games as well. This one however was the first to show how horrible they can be. That is an achievement considering how easily impressed I was back then.
I remember seeing this game in my cousin's English literature book, and his homework was to give points on why this cover art is not acceptable for the ethical treatment of children. Good memories.
Dino Crisis 2 is pretty sweet if you get the chance to try it
It has a mode where you can fight as a Dinosaur, and lets itself become a little more action-based in order to differentiate from the typical Resi style
It also has a plot written by Shu Takumi, the guy who wrote Ace Attorney, so it is half-decent
I don't know anyone else that has played this game. Someone must have because it got a shitty sequal.
this thread has proven me that ,to this day, I still am the only one ever to play this game
This, and all of the other Net Yaroze games for some reason bring back the most nostalgia for me from the PS1 era, and i was always amazed by how well Terra Incognita was coming along, and the terrible translation made me laugh too.
Another favorite of mine is Psychon, it's sad that these games and developers didn't get anywhere with Yaroze
