Ok, a lot of people remember old tomb raiders fondly. And a whole lot remember legacy of kain franchise as well (granted, it went downhill on the ps2, but it is still well remembered). Why no one remembers fear effect? I remember it being fairly popular and even spawning its own image comics mini series.
Motha. Fuckin'. Fear Effect.
I occasionally watch longplays of both games just to appreciate how good they were. The cross between future-tech, chinese triad syndicate stuff, and the supernatural - especially chinese myths and legends. It all blends together so well.
Throw in multiple endings and a couple of twists and, much like Hana, you got a tasty pair.
Damn shame about Inferno though. Not to mention it wouldnt survive a reboot or being a classic survival horror, not today. RIP.
Im a pretty huge fan of the series. Really regret Inferno getting the shit can
I can;t help but whatever happened to the Kronos guys
Only played 2 but this face always cracked me up at the beginning.
Stan Liu seems to be a sports photographer that seems to specielize in the sort of bland ultra cheesy stuff that usually ends up in stock photo collections...
not sure about the rest.
>it was 90s cgi based, and only in RE2 and ownards, the first one looked like a cheesy b-movie
That doesn't even make any sense. What were you expecting from a ps1 game? A fucking 1080p 60fps real time high res textures?
And even back in the day the survival horror genre was getting repetitive and lame, that game brought a new atmosphere that blend blade runner asian-futuristic atmosphere with heavy supernatural, mafia etc.
And you went full retarded saying it is "anime resident evil". The game was developed by western people and the artwork was HEAVILY influenced by, hmm, guess what? WESTERN COMIC BOOKS from that time.
>able to render and show human characers with facial expressions
Seriously, chrono cross ain't got shit on these graphics.
yeah. the team actually cheated in pretty much every regard but hey results is results and at the end of the day the game did look very good.
Hell you more or less had to cheat back in the PS1 era
I actually wonder if the creators would ever express interest in a kickstarter or something to get Inferno off the ground
If freaking Battle Chasers can come back this shit can too
You knew damn well what she meant and are just trying to show your retro gamer cred by being a bunch of cunts. Fuck off.
Hey girl I'm sorry about those horrible posters you had to deal with but don't worry baby we all ain't like that. Hope you stay on /vr/ and discover there are nice posters as well~
Replaying Fear Effect/Retro Helix after you've beaten them several times, it kind of loses its charm. You know the solution to all the puzzles, and any that are "don't step on this tile" aren't exactly difficult.
I don't blame an anon for watching a longplay to reminisce without going to the trouble of replaying.
>Being afraid of dying in a game
come on man there has to be some kind of challenge and penalty for loosing.
I just don't think that's really so much a problem is all. I did die a metric shit ton of times but never the same way twice.
Plus a lot of the death animation where pretty sweet.
It was just the style of the time.
>come on man there has to be some kind of challenge and penalty for loosing.
No one is arguing against challenge and penalty retard. There's a difference between dying because you fucked up and dying because the game is filled with one hit kill traps the player would never suspect during their first run.
>the game is filled with one hit kill traps the player would never suspect during their first run.
there really isn't as many as those as you seem to think there was. Or at the very least it's pretty obvious when you shouldn't be sticking your neck out in front of a gun ship
>TFW you learn how to properly stealth kill
it's a shame the game was advertised so poorly. I though Hana and Rain's relationship was actually kind of nice towards the later half of the game
>it's still hormonal teen bait any way you look at it.
Well, kinda. you're not wrong but at the same time it's very hard to call a lot of the stuff in the games gratuitous. The characters of Hana and Rain are very sexual by nature and the game and the world don't shy away from reflecting this. Yes Hana and Rain flirt and get hot and steamy with each other but that's kind of something couples do and by the end of the game you do really get the sense that they're actually a real couple.
There is more to the setting than just fap bait even if the game wears it's fap bait on it's sleeves.
Nope. Bungie. Would you believe.
Not that guy, just answered a question. Though he seems to have answered back to you anyway and you're being an elitist dick about it.
To digress a bit from this thread topic for your "amusement":
The fact is that as time goes, the lines of what's considered retro are gonna be stretched a bit. I don't see why PS2 can't be included here since there's a clear line between that generation and next one when digital distribution and HD resolutions really took off.
Also PS2 and its games see as much discussion on /v/ as /vr/ "approved" consoles and games do i.e. almost none unless it's some series with recently released games.
I still have a Fear Effect T-Shirt.
I work in the industry and we had a day at work where they wanted everyone to wear their most obscure game related clothing. I guess I'm too old because literally nobody recognized my shirt or said anything. This was a couple years ago but I was disappointed how nobody that works in games, at least where I work, recognized it.
Pushed it to limit for sure. I was playing the dreamcast more at that time, and I remember thinking this is just about as far as they can take the PS1. Chronocross was one of the later PS games that was really good looking too, though a bit of a disappointment otherwise.
Guys, I'm playing this game right now and I fucked myself. I saved right before a boss with my health in the red, I die from one hit. Is there any way to regain health aside from at scripted points or do I basically have to start over?
