This game still holds a special place in my heart, good memories, the sequel was good also, but not as charming as the first one.
Metal Combat. It's one of the worst games i've ever played.
That's a robot walking. It's a fighting game, you see. Amazing design, i know.
It's depressing how many AAA titles I've left unfinished while playing shit games to completion.
>only game included
>HEEEEELP MEEEEE forever ingrained in my mind.
No, but I've played many Russian FPS in hopes of discovering some hidden gems, like Hellforces or Übersoldier 2.
I've never played it, but I still remember the ad campaign.
this is pretty rad never played the first one though
I got it from a bargain bin at a games store some years ago. I literally haven't seen or even heard it mentioned anywhere else.
It's actually pretty fun
Nah, I jammed the hell out of this. First played it some demo disc, then tracked down a copy because I have an obsession with sea creatures.
More games need giant sea beast fights. Preferably in first person.
I fucking love this game
So, it's a "Games only Russians played" thread?
I forgot to put the fucking picture
More of a software than a game. I would sit around and compose shitty tracks for hours on end when I was an 8 year old kid.
pic related, Gunlok and Project Earth also known as Starmageddon.
Shame the only downloadable Golem is in russian
I grew up on it, my dad bought it for me at a yard sale.
I was that kid whose parents bought him a Master System so I'm sure there's plenty of shitty games nobody else has played.
Does anybody remember
i used to play the shit out of this game
Shit, I haven't played it in years so I'm not even sure. I've still got it lying around somewhere, though.
Never played the original, I found 2 in a discount shelf when places were trying to get rid of their remaining PS1 game stocks.
Except everybody in Russia played it.
But what about this masterpiece?
Yes, but made by russian devs, because original game was so popular here.
And lets not forget about this russian indie masterpiece.
I think this was actually the first strategy rpg I played. It was pretty budgeted but it was decent from what I remember. I know I hated it the first time I played it since I had no idea what the fuck was going on but I started liking it more after beating a few stages.
You are right.
Also, this game.
Bought it one time and loved it.
Strange game (????? ????? ??????? ???????????).
Is there a reason why Neighbors from Hell is associated with Russia? I always thought it was big only in Germany, considering that it had been developed in Austria and coincided with a popular German TV show about evil/annoying neighbors.
>a game that inspired a tv series
>I ONLY PLAYED IT I"M SPECIAL
It's that phenomenon when something becomes really popular in another country for some weird reason. I suppose that it happened because localization was pretty good, the game mostly relied on slapstick and not on writing, and neighbour looked like a person that you can meet in everyday Russian life. Also Jowood may have had some ties with Russian vidya industry - they were publishing Silent Storm on the west, for example (and they fucked up a lot with this one, by the way)
Codename fucking Panzers
Remind me of that Adult Swim game. Was the idea basically the same?
I think you're in the wrong thread
Im still unsure why I like this game, but im also really pissed that nearly every person I ask in Warframe has almost no idea what DS is.
Game wasn't too good, wasn't too bad. It was literally called Sheep. nothing special.
Well, there are also European *console* games no one has played.
Sorry to hear that. See that why I asked, honestly you can never judge the game based on the title or boxart alone.
Beside a few rare cases I often found games nothing to be like what I thought they were going to be. Image related, I thought this was a giant sandbox where it was literally survival of the fittest and you have to grow and evolve to take down the big boss. Turn out it had stages and the sandbox you do get at the end while fun is meaningless as you are already a god by then in terms of power.
X-Play while great back in the day and help when it came to getting games you know you will like actually was pretty misleading with this one. With that said I can't say I regretted buying it, I loved every moment of it.
Alternatively called Empire of Steel in other regions. This is a great game, and you owe it to yourself to play the Genesis/Mega Drive Version.
I know a lot of people who have this in their Steam libraries but I don't know anyone who's actually played it.
I still got this as a sticker on my old TV. U never playeds the actual game but it was in gaming magazine around 2000 or something. My 15 year old self thought this was pretty cool.
The trophy said coming soon. It is basically you eating other colored monsters to get the stats you want. After you get far enough in the stage and eat enough love bugs (I believe they were called anyway) your animal thing died after breeding a few new animal pups with an added limb. You pick your favorite and repeat the process until you get six limbs (five generations after your great granddaddy decided to take on the big boss) and you are powerful enough to complete the game.
I most likely made it sound boring as fuck. Honestly just watch an episode of a Let's Play or something for a better look or just emulate the game if you are willing.
It is a short but overall fun little enjoyable game. Something you would want to replay out of the fun of it all.
It actually correctly taught me about evolution as a kid. I was one of the dumb fucks that actually thought there was a dinosaur that jump off of a mountain enough times to grow wings. I was a little slow as a kid.
Posted this about 4 times before but still haven't gotten any replies.
It's a great game too
You are now aware that there was an FPS based on Starship Troopers.
OH THAT GAME WAS FUCKING AWESOME
scratched an itch for Metal Slug
thanks for reminding me of it.
>Ctrl + F Battle mages
I feel special.
When I was about 11, my parents tried to start limiting the time I could play on the PC we had because they thought I was becoming a shut in(I was). My 3 year old brother got this for christmas, so I'd use this as a segway to me getting on the computer and playing my own games.
>mfw I actually had a blast playing it
pic related as well (ST: Terran Ascendancy) - cool tactical RTS with loads of equipment options. features battlesuits which always gets me going.
both are annoyingly hard to get working on modern systems
Uhm, I'm not really sure. But if it exists, there has to be a download somewhere, I guess.
U:S: Most Wanted is a FPS with some stealth in it, I think.
I've never played it long because I got stuck early on and it was many, many years ago so I can't really remember.
But have this
>tfw its an official learning tool in poland
I've learned basics with it but I wouldn't ever guess somebody used this to learn people.
Well on the other hand...
It should happen more often.
Cant replay it anymore, only Win98 compatible.
I hope I'm not the only one who's played this but I've never seen it talked about
Uncomfy as fuck but in a good way
The original is worth it if you can find it for under a tenner. If you have a console that's region locked to NTSC robo pit is only on Sega Saturn. However if you have a PAL console then pick it up
Or just emulate it
there is no way any of you have played this gem
I have never met another person who's even heard of this game.
i played the demo so many times that i've got that little "glwb" noise he makes when unattaching from a surface burnt into my mind.
demo level was great fun, how was the rest of the game?
this game had the best fucking music
Im really sad it's one of those games that got forgotten. I thought it was pretty good. I'd kill for a remake of this today. This was Custom Robo's granddaddy yo
Pretty sure this was the first game that Games Workshop published.
If you like XCOM, you should emulate this; It was made by Gollop and plays like XCOM lite.
haven't played the N64 or PS1 versions, but did have the gameboy one
it was pretty frustrating, but not really too terrible.
I still have this game. Despite how shitty I thought it was I still played it for hours - even getting to that ice temple on mars.
I remember going into the options and reading the manual looking for a way to turn on audio as in Starfox.
You act like shitty licensed games on ridiculous properties aren't a thing.
I remember it being a Lemmings-styled game where you have to secure a safe path for a bunch of those fucking things to the end of the level. You played as something I can only describe as something that looks like a cross between a garbage can, a submarine, and the vacuum cleaner from Teletubbies.
I was 9 and had nothing better to play at the time.
This game was fucking weird. I bought it thinking I was just going to run a pizza joint, and eventually ended up running an italian mafia using the pizza joint as a front.
Wacki: Kosmiczna Rozgrywka
For you Polan.
You mean to tell me there's more than one game named "Hamsterball"?
Franko the crazy revenge.
Cheap as fuck these days but it's a fantastic RPG.
Highly recommend it if you like RPGs that don't stick to the norm.
i miss this game. I even miss the shitty story mode
>"I gots gas"
Welcome to the Space Jam
I am actually interested in how many people have played this game maybe the only good game Ubisoft was associated with
Why I liked this when I was a kid is something I will never understand.
i've actually been waiting for Sucker Punch to announce anything new about this game, even a remake or something, but there's nothing.
it's a shame because the game was brilliant.
got it at a book fair in elementary school
I can out-fail that. I made my parents buy me a new computer to play this.
Little Big Adventure. Classic adventure game that no one seems to know about.
There was a GBC or GBA game that had you playing as some sort of Warrior chick who could summon big ass animal spirit warriors or something for boss fights. it was a platformer of sorts, and your main weapon was a sword. Anyone know what the hell I'm talking about?
Never met anyone else who played space diablo.
You people have no idea what true horror is
I never understood how that game worked.
You chose a hero, and he can effectivelly become immortal by collecting experience. In the end, he regenerates health faster than anything in the game can damage him for.
Then there are genies and dragon caves, but I never figured out their point. And if you leave the map through the side of it, you enter another level. What the hell?
I'm glad no-one else played this. You literally couldn't complete it without exploiting glitches and downloading a patch.
I bought it on release for ten bucks to play with a friend, it had some players during the first week or two, then it just died. Shame, the game was pretty fun, the map consisted of three different sectors (warehouse, etc) that the players voted for. Only issue was the cover system, you had to always sit and dash between cover or else someone kills you in a second. It got poor ratings too.
I know that the game isn't really old and some people here probably know about it, but still.
I don't know if this is the perfect thread to ask, but I might as well give it a try.
Anyone here remembers a Devil May Cryish game on the PS2? I think it had standard hack and slash action + shooting guns, but the main character transformed (kinda like Devil Trigger from DMC) quite often and the form was more solid than the devil trigger. I think I also remember there being 2 playable characters with different transformations, and huge bosses.
It's just something I remember my brother playing when I was really young, I never actually got to play it myself I just watched him, but now I want to give it a try no matter how shit it is.
The Devil Inside? You could transform into a female character at certain points throughout the game.
>Nipponese game from the creators of Custom Robo that was only ever released in Europe
It's really good.
Me too. I've posted this in a few threads and this is the first time I've seen anyone else post it/acknowledge it.
I was watching some footage of it the other day. Felt like trying to torrent the PC version but it's probably easier to just emulate the psx version.
Game got pretty hard.
Nah, it kinda had camera and graphics like DMC or Soul Reaver, third person and walking across sections.
I also remember there being some huge bosses near the end.
I just hope I didn't actually merge DMC with another game in my memories.
Pretty sure nobody here played this one
I loved this game, I wish I still had the original disc.
Adding another "no one played this" euro platformer to the mix. It was kind of refeshing to see such a colourful game was actually produced in my country.
Mixed Bag: The Game. Some stages were very enjoyable, others were dreadful.
The Russian version of this (not the Steam release) AND the sequel.
I'm not even Russian. The game just looked cool.
RTS which emphasized colony building over combat.
Now that the sierra website is back up I'll be hopelessly optimistic for outpost 3
>mfw every single mission about "we just settled, build more stuff, then grab shit and run"
It was basically a clone of Master of Orion 2, a space 4X game.
>I bought it thinking I was just going to run a pizza joint, and eventually ended up running an italian mafia using the pizza joint as a front.
Oh fuck, I played that at a cousin's house once. She had so many fucking PS2 games it wasn't even funny. This stuck out the most so I popped it in to try it. I had no idea what the fuck was going on though, I guess it was too much for 10(?) year old me.
I would happily give it another chance now though.
>These threads are always full of unique looking weird games
>The game industry is in its current state because nobody bought unique games back in the day
pretty sure i'm one of the few person to even own that game
In my opinion they should start doing them again. This time there's the internet and Let's Players who will spread "unique" games like wildfire.
Thought it was pretty entertaining. Too bad even the gog version doesn't work on my computer.
I still wish I could get a refund on steam for how quickly this died
aside from the several shitty bugs
still my favorite hidden gem
