Chit-Chat / Why are so many indie games so cartoony looking?
« Last post by Naniyue on October 03, 2023, 09:17:56 PM »
  While I like both realistic and cartoonish stuff,  too many of these games lean toward the cartoon side of things.  Why is this the case?  A game doesn't need to be cartoony to be retro looking.

i bought a PC-FX and now i search a memory unit for this. I would take a full working original or a non-volatile rebuild version.

best regards from germany

Setting up for game conventions we have tons of problems with consoles and power strips going bad, so it does happen from time to time I guess, lol....
And don't forget about the power setup at venues for cons/events! I always say, "It's not a con if we DON'T blow a breaker". All those CRTs daisy chained over multiple power strips. It's easy to hit 15 or 20 amps real quick.
Chit-Chat / Your arcade memories?

Please share your arcade experiences, no matter how simple!

Two of mine:

1)  I've always liked Make Trax/Crush Roller.  I remember playing it for the first time when I was maybe eight years old, in a dark recess of an eatery at a flea market.  Even as the years passed, the game was still there, a reliable presence, all the way up until I had fully grown and the market finally closed down.

2) I'm sure many have had this one.  A game you really liked, but was still 50 cents.  And then, one day, it FINALLY went down to 25!   :D

Long before "The Legend of Xanadu", came the 1985 classic!

I was really worried this was going to be a thread about drinking way too much and not remembering it.
I enjoy anime but haven't played a lot of "anime" games for obey due to language barrier. However, I did enjoy Private Eye Dol's recent fan translation. I'd considerate it to be "anime AF". I also recall playing Future Boy Conan decades ago and beating it. Since it's a platformer, it plays easy enough for a non-Japanese speaker.

I played Cobra on Sega CD b/c it's in English, but it also is on PCE. I'm not the biggest fan of digital comics but I did finish it.

YuYu is on my short list to get for PCE. I've emulated it, and it's seems pretty simple and not much meat there, hence it sells for $10-20. Reminds me of Operation Wolf.

Always at the top is Ys Book I&II, Spriggan, and the Thunder series. That's all CD stuff though. For just Turbo HuCards I'd go with R-Type, Air Zonk, Dungeon Explorer, Neutopia II, Soldier series.
I'll add the Devil Hunter pair to my list of stuff to try to beat.  As a retard, I can't outright skip the first game...
I don't remember, but it was a decent watch, regardless.

If you enjoyed 3x3 Eyes, the Yunas, and all that, I do suggest playing the second Devil Hunter Youko game.  It takes place where the first one left off, but the first one was such a boring chore, I suggest skipping it.

  All three Ranma games have great cut scenes, but game quality varies.  I swear the first is impossible to beat without cheating.  The second is like the Yunas and I found it amusing.  The third is a mediocre fighting game, but it wasn't too bad.

  Anyone tried the Yuu Yuu Hakushou one?  I'm not a fan of the show, but I'm still willing to give it a try.
