I'm playing pic related.

- Epic Soundtrack
- You can beat the game blind in 3-7 hours
- Class system in 1989
- Game is actually easier with fewer characters instead of harder
- First instance of memento mori in a video game

How about you guys?

I love that game but wouldn't really say it has a class system.

>> No.4477406


A proto-class system, with three classes.

I've always wanted to get into SaGa games since I only played Minstrel Song (and I had no idea what I was doing).
Should I play the original GB games or the remakes? Since I've never played them nostaalgia obviously isn't a factor, but I don't want to touch the new versions if it's like the butchering job Square did to Seiken Densetsu.

>> No.4477426

Outside of arcade games which I can't discuss on /vr/ I'm playing Blazing Lazers / Gunhed recently.

>> No.4477494


It sort of depends.

The remakes are good, (presumably the remake of FFL3 is the only good version of the game) but they do lack some of the obtuse, broken mechanics that make the originals so interesting. So, it depends on if you'd like to experience the sorts of RPGs that made it market in 1989-1992, or the cleaned up versions with more modern mechanics and graphics.

Subjectively, the DS remakes have inferior music, and I also really don't like the style they use either. The sparse graphics, and obtuse language are great for producing a lonely, existential feel.

Holy shit, you guys have time to play games right now?! What's that like?

I don't celebrate Christmas or other yearly stuff such as birthdays, etc. My family does but I don't care and since I'm on a break I actually have more time lol

Been playing Turok 2 in my time off for N64. Being stuck on Hive of the Mantids with no working L button(the map) has been fucking brutal though. Killed two of the queen things but can't find how to open the shields for the master computer.

Probably going to play Parasite Eve while I'm off of work. It's a nice Christmas game.

>> No.4477562

Seeing how you are in /vr/ you can go with the original. Though the Wonderswan Color version of SaGa 1 does look nice if you wanted updated visuals. The remake of SaGa 2 has added mechanics so it is up to you if you want to play it in its original form or not. I also think that the Gameboy music is better than the music on the NDS.

Unlike other series you can often say that the SaGa remakes are often better than the original, but you have to realize that they often add mechanics that weren't present until later games. So if you want to get eased into the series might as well go with the games that you just grapple with growth mechanics rather than many other sets of it.

I am playing the Romancing SaGa 2 remaster. I cannot believe that this is an actual SNES RPG.

>> No.4477691

yo why do you keep complaining about not being able to talk about arcade games all the time?

We have arcade threads all the time and no one gets upset if you do, they're just not that popular so you're not gonna get a lot (You's).

Reddit has taken over 4chan and they don't allow acade discussion anymore, too racist.

I like arcade games also.

Just wanted to specify that I'm playing arcade games but other than that some Blazing Lazers

I'm replaying Romancing SaGa 2. Again. It's one of my favourite games and now it's more accessible so I hope everyone gives it a try.

>> No.4478023


I just completed two perfect saves on my old Pilotwings 64 cart, which I'd done just once before in life, years earlier. In practical terms, this is the highest stored (saveable) achievement on the game pak, and saves cannot be copied on the pak, so you have to do everything twice.

Shutter Bug 3, arguably the game's hardest stage, tortured me on the first go-around, that memory of how hard it was stayed with me - but I did perfect it, twice, way back when. This time around I broke the thing into its component parts and pretty quickly knocked it out, starting cold. I got it done twice before going home for Christmas, I was giggling and giddy, not at all as hard as I'd remembered it.

I need to finish it one more time this year. Both of my favorite games turned 20 this year, so I've played them both at least a dozen times or so. This is probably going to be the last game I finish before the year is over.

I might play Legend on Christmas though, that sounds really comfy.

The plan is to play Phantasmagoria 2 over the next few days and a ps1 game after that I've not chosen yet

Yes, it was still pretty uncommon even though DQ3 is a huge success. Even then, DQ3's system is a bit limited compared to later stuff.

For me, it's this masterpiece, though

>> No.4481245

A fuckton of stuff. Have a bunch of family and friends over and enough rooms, consoles and screens to have more than a dozen people playing at the same time. There will definitely be a lot of people playing light gun games with actual light guns and super smash and racing games. Invariably a few aspies will grab the systems with LCDs and sit in the corner playing whatever aspies play by alone. But at least everyone will have a good time.
