Starcontrol 2 and 3. Talagang challenging in under time pressure pa.
ahhh yes that was what i was talking about way back. shadow run. now i remember. thanksOriginally Posted by chelle1688
theres a pretty new game that is developed by those who made the close combat games and is very similar to that game albeit in 3d. i believe its titled westfront: squad battles.
Problema sa ibang remake, some genres have been unsuccesful moving from 2d to 3d.
Case in point. I don't know if you've played them, DeepZer0, but the new 2d GBA Castlevanias are inarguably the best in the series. Lacking in SOTN's flash, but each new installment is a major improvements in graphics, sound, mechanics and especially gameplay. Their new 3d 'vania isn't receiving that much critical acclaim kasi they're trying compete in that one with people who've already fallen for Devil May Cry (or for that matter, POP:Sands of Time). Decent game though.para sa akin, 2D pa rin da best pagdating sa castlevania.
Really telling is the beatemup genre. God, I would so love to play a 3d remake of Streets of Rage, pero nobody's made a beatemup decent enough to play in 3d. Fighting Force, The Bouncer, Crimson Tears, State Of Emergency, so many attempts to revamp and update with better technology, enhancements from other genres, etc. Who knows why nobody's come up with the perfect formula yet? Parang palaging may part na sablay.
Closest to beatemup that's decent in 3d is Gauntlet, but it's not exactly one. Also notable but unsuccesful is the Tekken minigame, because they try so hard although they keep failing in getting difficulty balance right.
And maybe Koei's Dynasty Warriors series, but i'm not too satisfied with that series either. Pretty but too easy, and why should I have to run around the map to look for my boss?
Maybe next gen will get it right. Then we'll get a wortyh succesor to SoR
Just started playing the Dark Queen of Krynn again. Really fantastic story.
I wish the entire Krynn series (Champions, Death Knights, Dark Queen) would be remade. Now THAT would be one hell of a PC series.
"If possible, conduct your business by January of 2159. February latest."Starcontrol 2 and 3. Talagang challenging in under time pressure pa.
Oh man, Starcon2 really cracks me up.
"Is it true that you are a race of cowards?"
"Oh yes absolutely! And with no reservations! It has kept us alive for years... and we find no need to change it..."
Star Control 2 rules!
I'd like to see Wing Commander series remade. ganda nitong game na to!
^ Try going to the Ilwrath homeworld and ask if they are truly evil. Hehe... another gem of text-based interaction. No voiced game could get close to this.

So with that in mind, and some other games that suffered the same fate as well, I generalized that some things in 2D are better to be left alone in that dimension.
wow! naglalaro ka rin nun? APIR! boto ako jan! hehe astig siguro... futuristic espionage type of game ang dating nun!Originally Posted by sarin
Funny you say that, DeepZer0. I've played the latest 2d Megaman games in GBA as well Actually, most people want to have nothing to do with their latest series (Megaman Zero), because it's so frickin' hard, expecially the first one! The hardest they've set for any iteration of Megaman, na possibly one of the hardest settings for platformers ever. They've been forced to bring down the difficulty level when they got to MM Zero 3, but I doubt people want to have anything to do with it.I am a fan of megaman but when I played the latest megaman in 3d version, it was more like a flunk.
Anyway, don't fret, DeepZer0, 3d has overall been a good thing. Would you rather be in a gaming world that would have never spawned Tekken, Counter Strike, Tony Hawk, Jet Set Radio, SSX, DDR, Soul Cal, VF, Doom, Unreal Tournament, Time Splitters, AVP2, Keisatsukan, Metal Gear Solid, Ehrgeiz... well, the list could just keep going.
Meron ako dati game sa Famicom ang title "Desert Storm", it's a combination of racing on dangerous road at shooting. I want it remade, kahit 2D ulit.
Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake. That's Solid Snake in the years before MGS.
@plsburydoughboy: One more game that really crapped up in 3d was Contra...remember 1996's Contra: Legacy of War and C The Contra Adventure?
Actually, I think Contra went to the crapper as early as Genesis. And not all Castlevania's were great; Castlevania 2 for NES just gave you too hard a time, going back to that stupid priest every time.
But yes, you wonder why they even bothered making C.
Actually, there's a lot more to be said a bout 2d/3d, but I'm too lazy to make another thread. So here goes:
Metal Gear was a solid enough design to be remade for GAME BOY. And Kojima started out designing this game for MSX, although he wanted to make it for NES all along (of course, Nintendo's monopoly got in the way). Anyway, he' s a genius no matter what the medium.
Not as well known is that Rockstar had been making Game Boy versions of Grand Theft Auto as early as 1996. Uhm, not sure about the year, but that sounds pretty close, and at this time the game was stuck on the top down view. The series didn't become as popular until GTA III, wherein the technology was strong enough to put in as many fun and design elements as the gamemakers wanted, such as moving camera, the radio stations, expansive world, etc. But Game Boy versions already had most of the game elements down, including the propensity for violence.
Anyway, all I'm saying is that the advances in technology has allowed for gamemakers to more fully realize their ideas. Which is not really news to anyone, only this is why 3d has been such a good thing for gaming.
My opinion will never change. I just hope people won't mistook graphics for overall gameplay. 3D is a visual thing, so when I say it suck on 3D, i just meant it suck ON 3D art-wise. Anyway visuals are more of a subjective matter. Also, I dont hate 3D in fact I cant disagree that Metal Gear Series in 3D than its previous 2D games.
Another remake I want: Battletoads
I feel for you. During my first few runs, I could not defeat ANY of the bosses. But what can I say... other "hardcore" gamers around the world are lamenting that games are becoming too easy. So Capcom served this one up for them.Actually, most people want to have nothing to do with their latest series (Megaman Zero), because it's so frickin' hard, expecially the first one!
As for MMZ, simple lang naman. You gotta have the patience to study the bosses' movement patterns. You know, like in days of old.
Are you kidding, rave? I've competely given up and moved on to other games. Some games are made to make us feel bad when we don't play them.I feel for you. During my first few runs, I could not defeat ANY of the bosses.
Actually, this brings to mind a funny quote off that old ZD TV show about videogames: "If you know people who've finished any of the old JVC Star Wars games, give them a hug. They've been through a lot."
It's not so simple to say '3d has made games shallower'. Sony has proven the casual gamer market is a big market, and that there's nothing wrong or bad about not taking your games that seriously. In fact, the so-called hardcore community has thrived and prospered since the market has expanded for casual gaming (of course the net and emulation had something to do with it too, but well you know.) Well, actually a lot of things have changed.
Anyway, if you're dissatisfied with most games now, DeepZer0, consider this disgustingly rough but perhaps valid analogy:
Atari is to NES/Famicom is to SNES/Super Famicom; as
PlayStation is to PlayStation 2 is to (insert succesful next gen console here)
3d's answer to Super Famicom isn't here yet, but expect to be really really happy when it does show up. And Sony doesn't have to be the one making it, nor Nintendo or Microsoft. Heck, who knows who else would want a bite of the gaming market pie?
Let's not forget the games that had graceful transition to 3D. Like Sonic Adventure. I don't see anyone ranting that it was worse than the 2D Sonics.
Pre what platform is Megaman Zero? Alam ko iyong mga Megaman Series sa Family Computer (up to 5 ito diba). Hindi ko alam iyong Megaman Zero. Sa PSX ba ito? PS2?Originally Posted by rave
Megaman Zero. GBA. Play as Zero in a post-apocalyptic future where X is long-gone, and Zero, revived by a band of (French?) rebels, fight against a Communistic Utopian society.
Good series. Good story. Difficult gameplay. Latest sequel is MMZ3.
The series seems to assume that MMX6 and above never happened. Because in the ending of MMZ1, the [spoiler start]soul-consciousness of X (that diamond thingy that speaks in all-caps/all-katakana)[spoiler end] said that [spoiler start]Zero has disappeared and X has been fighting alone ever since.[spoiler end]
But of course we will never know since the MMX series still is alive and kicking.
