itt: games that were almost decent, but fatally flawed.
pic related, I tried this out and it's almost fun. with savestates, it is fun. but the fact that you only have 1 hp and everything kills you makes it really frustratingly difficult to play through fairly.
also this. it's almost decent, I liked the towers and boss fights. but the dungeons are mindbendingly ridiculous, you start off too weak, you always get sent back to the beginning, too many cheap ways of getting killed, etc. the basic idea is not bad at all and I always liked the atmosphere, but the execution is what ruins it.
I forgot to mention that silver surfer has amazing music.
Does anyone know a good audio video switcher that doesn't have lag and lower the quality? I noticed mine lowers the quality and causes faint lines to scroll up the screen. Pic related. That's the one I use
Why does Murasamejou get the occasional nod, but this shining example of classic gaming doesn't get any recognition? Surely Mike Jones, with two games to his name, commands more respect than Takamaru or the various other one-hit wonders that Nintendo trots out every once in a while.
In Osaka, I'd recommend Space Station as a video game bar to check out, as it's owned by an American and is very foreigner friendly. Get there at opening though (8pm) as it fills up quick as it's very small. Also, there is a mandarake near by which has a decent selection of games.
Also in Osaka, do to Den Den Town and particularly the Super Potato there. It's loads better than the Akihabara Super Potato, which is utter shit.
I just finished Beneath a Steel Sky and frankly I don't understand why adventure gaming enthusiasts seem to like it so much. The comic panel intro seemed quite innovative and I was expecting something completely different, but the story was a mess, characters bland and backgrounds all drawn in such exciting colours as brown and grey.
It wasn't all bad, but it was just so mediocre that I felt a little betrayed because of the great expectations. I was always wondering whether the start was just slow and the game would get interesting at some point but it didn't.

>>2798367 BASS got overhyped when GoG starting giving it away for free. Because it has a cool cyberpunkish setting, people starting yammering about it like it's some lost gem of the genre, when it's a sometimes cool, sometimes funny, seriously flawed game as you said. It's got quite a bit of the things everyone loves to hate on adventure games for, like pixel-hunting for important objects.
I don't think it's a terrible game but it really doesn't deserve to stand up there with the classics.

>>2798367 I thought Sam & Max was well below other LucasArts adventures like Monkey Island and Full Throttle. Yeah, the humor was there, and I liked the characters, but the puzzles were mostly stupid and the plot was lame. The interface is a pain in the ass too--no mouseover text, and giant mouse icons so it's hard to tell which object you're hovering over.

In the Early 2000s, when the N64 was on the cusp of officially dying, I foresaw this problem and bought up quite a few controllers. Thanks to that I still have 4 like-new controllers with nice, taut joysticks.
Is there any way to make classic PC games look a bit better? Everything is blurred to hell, which I get is due to upscaling it from 480p, but I'm wondering if I can make the image sharper somehow. Any tool/program/wrapper for this?
Looking for the most satisfying platformer. I want a game that you just turn on and you're instantly jumping around and everything feels snappy and responsive. Usually I load up a save state in Megaman X where I've already collected the dash upgrade (and then exited the level) so I can just get right into it but I'm looking for something other than Megaman X.
