Chippoke Ralph no Daibouken: The Adventure of Little Ralph is a fantastic side-scrolling action-platformer for the PS1. You play as a young boy armed with nothing but a sword facing off against a horde of cartoon-esque demons and monsters. The levels have thematic variety and an overarching Ghibli-esque art direction which is very pleasant.
The best part is the gameplay. Similar to the Mario or Mega Man games, you are given a very limited arsenal of moves but have to absolutely master them to overcome levels. Whenever you gain points by beating enemies, chains of dangling... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Segare Ijiri for PS1 is a deeply strange Japanese game. You play as a boy with a big, yellow arrow for a head. Your mother is an omniscient giraffe. The game is something of an abstract coming-of-age story as you clear various challenges designed, allegedly, to teach you various life lessons. If you don't speak Japanese that whole aspect would be lost on you, but I suspect it wasn't very clear anyway.
Segare Ijiri is a 3D platformer where physics are regularly disregarded. You make your way through non-Euclidean levels divided into box-like rooms where each... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Napple Tale: Arsia in Daydream is a 3D action-platformer with RPG elements for the DreamCast. At its time of release it was touted for being developed by an almost entirely female staff, a rarity in the Japanese industry. It tells the story of a girl whisked away to Napple World, a dimension between the living and the dead; now she must recollect the pieces of her scattered soul to get back home.
Napple Tale features a hub world and four primary sub-worlds with seasonal themes. Though it was touted as an RPG, it's no more of an RPG than, say, Klonoa is, though it... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Do you guys have any incomplete games? From missing manuals, stupid inserts, or maybe a bonus demo disc/sticker/map/etc? Hell, you may be missing the entire game case/box. Does it bother you or do you only care about owning the game itself and no more? I was just reminded of Parasite Eve and I feel like playing it again, but I'm always bothered that my copy didn't have a demo disc. Not gonna complain and cry my eyes out because of it, especially since I got the game for like $10 at a flea market in great condition like 3-4 years ago, but it just annoys me... Comment too long.

I have magic knight rayearth (e) without the manual, but with case and rear art. Also tales of destiny with manual but no case. The magic knight manual bugs my a little but I'm not paying out the ass for it.
If it's a cartridge game, I don't give a shit. The box & dox are fine to have, but ultimately it's only the game that matters. However for disc-based games, there is NO good excuse for missing any part of it, so they must be complete for me. >tfw one of my few incomplete disc games is Mega Man Legends. (missing the manual)
You posted it. Most of them are quite meh, but if you desperately want to play beat'em up on SNES play the Capcom and Konami ones, plus some others like Sonic Blastman 2, Denjin Makai, Kunios and a few other SFC exclusives.
>>2889963 Phantasy Star for me. It has better, more interesting themes and settings, and I like how there's a consistent plotline that has an immensely satisfying end. Final Fantasy has great gameplay ideas in some games, but it's like it's trying too hard when it comes to setting and plot. Phantasy Star has an understated, effortless style of pulling stuff that FF beats you over the head over and over in an attempt to manipulate you into caring about the plot. FF is good too, but PS is better for me.
Currently I am very pissed off about Steam. I saw they were offering the 3D Realms Anthology for 10 bucks until the 4th of January. I felt like buying it today and it's just gone. I have a screenshot of the cached steam page and a screenshot of the 3d Realms page which says "get it before the 31st of December 2015 - after that you'll never ever get it again". So what do I do now? Also: Apogee game thread.
About two weeks ago, my scumbag junkie cousin ran away from home; she stole my old NES and game cartridges and sold them all for drug money. I don't feel like finding her or tracking down my old stuff, but now I really miss some of my old games (like Zelda, Zelda II, Megaman, etc.). I have a 3ds, and I'm thinking about downloading some retro titles off the eshop. Does anyone know if it's any good? Are there any common bugs/errors with the Virtual Console titles?
>>2889147 So there are no real issues with the games then? Also, I can't stand the bitch. She'd been staying at my apartment for about a month because my gf is one of those people who believes in second chances and all that nonsense. After she bailed, we found out that she stole my box of old games and a bunch of jewellery and clothes from my gf's closet. We called the cops but they couldn't really do anything about it. I'm just glad she's gone.
