  4. I'd like to see a scraper for rom hacks personally
  5. Thought we could have a thread where people can request videos for rom hacks if they're struggling to find any! Personally, i'm looking for Pokemon Pink (Hack of Blue) and Peaches Winter Adventure (SMB nes hack)
  6. is there anyway around this? this is the only theme i've found that i like but the black videos are annoying as hell
  7. that's swell, thanks a lot! hopefully they'll include it soon!
  8. sorry but i can't seem to find it at all would you be kind enough to send me a screenshot?
  9. Hi was wondering if you have any logos available for the following Rom Hacks? Knuckles in Sonic The Hedgehog Knuckles in Sonic The Hedgehog 2 Sonic 2 Retro Remix Sonic 3 Complete Sonic Crackers Sonic The Hedgehog The S Factor
  10. awesome collection! i am so jealous of the tales of destiny and lunar ones...I have collectors editions of tales of xillia 2 and tales of symphonias ps release Yeah Koudelka's a good un. Haven't played it in a couple of years actually, i should sort that. I think i'd appreciate it even more now since i got into H.P Lovecraft etc. I'd forgotten about Future Cop, haven't played it since about 2001ish. Never noticed before but you're right - it is an ED-209 knock off lmao (incidentally- why did OCP program 209 to squeal?) and speaking of Robocop... Robocop VS Terminator for Genesis! also do game recs have to meet a certain criteria? I was just thinking about how to define not well known games given some might be more well known in certain countries than others. Oh and can we rec rom hacks?
  11. mine too! I've never understood how the N64 was considered serious competition for it. I mean, look at the sheer amount of games in each genre the PSX has compared to N64 then look how many of them were best sellers and still considered must plays today. You've got final fantasy 7-9, metal gear solid, tekken, tomb raider, resident evil 1-survivor, wipeout, suikoden, star ocean,soul reaver and dozens more. N64 has ocarina of time, majoras mask, mario 64, mario kart and golden eye lol. 300 physical? bloody hell! i probably have about 30 or so haha. i'll recommend Koudelka, It's a 4 disc survival horror with a final fantasy style battle system set in an abandoned monastery in the 1800's. It's also a precursor to the Shadowhearts series on PS2. My only complaint is that the battle system could do with a few tweaks,other than that it's pretty damn good. There's some gorgeous pre-rendered backgrounds, the voice actings excellent for the time, characters are solid and believable (Koudelka hersef is a qt) Enemies are varied and pretty horrific looking, the soundtrack is good but not Nobuo Uematsu good and the story is really good. Fans of the original resident evils and final fantasy psx titles should check this out https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wlFT2dhViMk
  12. Yeah i actually have a physical copy of it in here somewhere! haven't played it for a long time though! I might do recs' for a few ps1 games when i get off work later
  13. lol you're welcome! it's not an easy game by any means but getting good at it feels pretty rewarding. I'm going to cheat slightly with my next rec. This game IS well known but i think most people wont have played it solely because it comes across as a kids game. World of Illusion for Sega Genesis The game is pretty much your standard platformer when you play alone. Mickey and Donald are pretty much the same character, since both can use their magic cape to attack the enemies, but it doesn't work to jump on the enemies in this game. They can also both crawl which allows them to reach tight places, but when they are crawling they can't attack. The real difference if you choose to play as Mickey or Donald is that about 1/3 of the part of each stage is different depending who you picked to play as, so you can almost say that playing as Mickey is the easy mode in this game and playing as Donald is the more difficult mode. However if you can find a friend to play with then the game offers a lot more entertainment, since you both play at the same time and share the number of 1-ups together. Teamwork is also now one of the most important things in order to beat the game. Sometimes one player needs to carry the other so the other can jump high enough to reach a place, and then throw down a rope to the other player, and of course there are some other clever twists. Sometimes it even feels that you are playing another game because it's clear that the programmers wanted to player to play with a friend, because then you get to play the most entertainment stages in the game. The graphics are gorgeous and colorful, all the stages are a real pleasure to look at and the soundtrack is superb, I could spend hours listening to the music for the forest level and the magic carpet ride level. It's an absolute gem of a platformer, don't be put off by the disney characters! Gameplay/review: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bTudNOuVtzU
  14. I'm going to recommend Atomic Runner for Sega Genesis. I'll concede that the gameplay is an acquired taste: the continuously scrolling screen makes for a steep learning curve and the unique controls get in the way at first. It definitely pays to find out which control layout - there are as many as nine - suits you best and then stick with it until both moving and shooting become second nature. This is when the fun begins as the seemingly cumbersome and counterintuitive controls prove very responsive and extremely accurate. Chelnov does exactly what you tell him to and does it with unmistakeable grace, thanks to very fluid and life-life sprite animation. Jumping - which could've single-handedly ruined the game - is executed particularly well; Chelnov is fully controllable in mid-air and it's easy to steer him with pixel-perfect precision. This is of crucial importance as Atomic Runner is a very unforgiving game in a one-hit-and-you're-dead sort of way. Fortunately, it is also supremely fair - numerous continue points in each stage help you make good progress, extra lives are earned by collecting points, power-ups are in abundance, collision detection is absolutely flawless, and not a single cheap trick is ever played on you. I was overjoyed by the fact that all of the game's challenge lies in creative (and occasionally brilliant) level design and meticulous enemy placement; with even the best games occasionally at fault here, Atomic Runner is indeed a rare gem in this respect. I love the bizarre art style of the levels and enemies and the soundtrack is awesome. Gameplay/review of it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ra2xP480fJc
