Wait, you're telling me they fit the NES Ultima V into a 256k cartridge ROM yet they needed four double sided floppies on the Apple II and C64 despite same CPU? That's over 1MB of data.

Fucking magnets, how does that work?

1. Why are you playing the NES Ultimas in the first place? They suck donkey dick.
2. I'm not sure if they actually used all the space on the disks, it's more likely they just organized it into separate sides for the town, dungeons, etc screens because it was neater and more logical that way.
3. The Apple and C64 probably needed more code than the NES due to the disk routines and some other stuff
4. The NES Ultimas possibly have content cut out of them, I admit I'm not that familiar with these versions.

This is impossible, simply impossible, you essentially need a perfect run, you can't make a single mistake and even then there's barely enough time.

The later versions of the game actually changed the requirement to 7.500, which is so much more reasonable.

So yeah I'm going to try to beat Castlevania II: Belmont's Revenge tonight. Also going to try to beat the arcade version of UN squadron on one credit or two at the most (I can do it in four credits currently), then I'll try to beat the prize winner levels in Nectaris: Military Madness for the PS1, and later or in between play Heavy Barrel (arcade) on the Switch, which is nice since it's the first time I've enjoyed it since the arcade due to its odd control scheme.

I watched a stream of it a few years ago. It seems competently made, not as bad as he makes it sound. Then again James is too dumb to even get through the first screen of RE2 because of the "bad tank controls" so no wonder he'd hate this.

the AVGN review isn't good because most of his complaints can be applied to survival horror games as a whole. Countdown Vampires is bad because it's a bad survival horror game. No balance, tedious pacing, plenty of bugs/errors, etc

>> No.7037569

Its bad even for a resident evil clone. Its surprisingly functional and has all the things you would expect from a survival horror game that follows the RE formula of that era, but where it really falls short is that its story, plot and characters fall completely flat. It doesn't even have the its so bad its good kind of story telling that something like blue stinger or overblood has, its just a lifeless RE clone, although I'd argue the game would have been a whole point better if the MC wore a shirt.

I noticed that too. Their entire method to make encounters difficult was to throw 2-3 tough enemies at you at the same time.

James has no fashion sense mainly because...
1) he's a Nintendo fanboy, which makes him a normie.
2) if he happens to be a Leftist or an atheist, then he definitely would lack the creativity required to have fashion sense, since Normies who are Leftists or Atheists lack imagination.
