still no clue.  What system was it on?

Based on the low end graphics and the resolution of the screenshot, I'm guessing NES. Maybe the Master System. *shrugs*

I just dug through my listing of NES games and nothing popped to mind. I do think us gamers are stumped on this one.
15362  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Rising Price of Games? on: October 07, 2004, 11:49:30 PM
Quote from: "pr0ner"
I forgot that N64 prices were in this range, too.  I just read on IGN's XBox site that Conker's Bad Fur Day for N64 retailed for $70.

I bought that game the day it came out, and I know that there was no way in hell that I paid that kind of cash for that game.

Back in my younger days, I remember all SNES and Genesis carts running $50, the industry standard. Short of Phantasy Star 4 (which I remember was like $70 when it came out), and Virtua Racing (included some extra chips for the console), I remember the standard pricing.

That doesn't sound all that great to me.  I was hoping more like $5 for classic games.  frown  Still no word on when it's coming out.

Considering how easy it is to 'find' some of these old classics, as well as companies selling 10-15 classics for $50 (or cheaper), that price seems outrageously steep.

Took me a while to find some screens of this game.  Ah, the memories.

Okay, it seems that you've stumped us on this one. Care to give us a hint?

Quote from: "Graham"
Don't forget that you have a large number of Collector's Editions of Halo 2 out there.  Although they aren't much more expensive, the profit margin on those should be a bit nicer.

For $5 more you get a ton more stuff. Methinks the profit margin is less on those, personally.

Actraiser?

Yes, I can personally confirm that this game is Actraiser. What a classic. You're up.

And as far as that Darkstalkers pic goes... It could also be Night Warriors on the Sega Saturn (import) or some uber-combo game that had all the Night Warriors/Darkstalkers games on one disk for the Dreamcast (also import). No, I'm not a gaming geek. smile

I also stand by my position that FF6/3 was the best of Square's titles (and, yes, I've played them all since then).
15368  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Name that Game, Graphic Edition on: October 06, 2004, 05:51:04 AM
And the amazing part is that I only remember seeing Mr. Bones on the back of my brother's Saturn box. We never owned it.

Anyway, for my next image, I bring your way this classic RPG from when story and plot meant far more than graphics and sound. This game was from a time when there was no FMV, no CGI movies, and no Dolby Digital Surround Sound. It was also (IMHO) Square's (or Square Enix, or Squenix, or whatever they call themselves now) best RPG they've ever made:



Freaky final boss, no? *looks around for his soundtrack*
15369  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Name that Game, Graphic Edition on: October 05, 2004, 05:54:31 PM

Mr. Bones on the Sega Saturn?

Wait.  What?  Eddie already went, right?

Unless I've really missed what's going on, the next up is you with your screenshot from a game I can't place. Unless you were wrong with your Beach Spikers game (but I think you were right).
15371  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Name that Game, Graphic Edition on: October 03, 2004, 03:40:34 AM
Well, you're right, Dimmona, it was Stun Runner on the Lynx.

I heard that it might've come out on some recent combo release, but I'm not sure about that offhand.

As for your non-console shot ( smile ), it's from either Call of Duty or the expansion of the game. Nice explosion though.

Edit - DOH! stiffler beat me by less than a minute. Your post. smile
15372  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Name that Game, Graphic Edition on: October 02, 2004, 10:57:34 PM
Well, let me give you two a hint - as far as I know, this arcade game was ported to exactly to one console. And that console was a portable system.

War Gods.  The MK4 tech demo!

Perhaps you were lucky enough to play this one on my favorite console.

War Gods? Ye Gods.

And as far as your image - Dragon Force on the Saturn. Excellent game and a pain in the ass to beat.

Back to the classics. For fun, name the game AND the console it was on.

This one is a contender for worst fighting game ever.... I wouldnt even mention it if it werent for the fact that TML and I created it but got ripped off!

I thought that Pit Fighter was the contender for worst fighting game ever, but I can tell that this game isn't it.

What it is exactly I have no idea though.

Wait...now that I look at it, it looks like a horrible fighting game out of the '64-bit' Jaguar console. What was it called... Way of the Warrior, or something like that?
15375  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Name that Game, Graphic Edition on: October 01, 2004, 01:29:25 PM
And that would be Time Crisis on the PS1.

I have to say, I never played Body Harvest.

Conker's Bad Fur Day absolutely rocked though. "I, am, the Great Might Poo, and I'm going to throw my shit at you." biggrin

Anyway, let's head back in time to a handheld that eventually couldn't:

that superfx chip is getting a work out today!  That appears to be Star Fox.

Yup, that's Star Fox. Good old demon headed Andross that showed up on the Hard difficulty path. And unlike most of today's titles, that game was actually hard.

Go find us a game, GatorFavre.

Kid Icarus for the NES! Man, what a classic.

Here's another classic on the very slow (by today's standards) SNES:


Edit: Yes, the game really did have black borders that big around it at all times.

15379  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Nintendo DS:Consipracy Theory... on: September 29, 2004, 08:56:38 PM
I look at it this way - there's lots of possiblities for the little handheld that could. One thought is that the console is capable of piggybacking any DS that gets into range, to extend the range of the first console.

Just imagine if it could actually do that.

And on the other side of the coin - since the game uses 800.11 (or whatever the low-end wireless standard is called), the Warp Pipe Project guys (the ones who get LAN games on the Gamecube to go online over the internet) are going to work on that console as well.
15380  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Name that Game, Graphic Edition on: September 29, 2004, 02:19:55 PM
What the hell is that game... I know I've seen it before.

Is it even an American game?

Final Fantasy 2 indeed, Dimmona... And you call yourself a gamer. biggrin
My very first RPG (FF1). Now that was a classic game.
15382  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Name that Game, Graphic Edition on: September 29, 2004, 12:02:00 AM
Well, I'd say PaRappa the Rapper, but I know that's not it. So, let's see here...

*light bulb explodes*

It's a Parappa the Rapper lookalike - Gataroo-Man. That's a classic I never played. Seen some people play it really well (or something like it anyway) in the arcades. Impressive.

Here, let's try another classic game (this time hosted on my personal server to make sure it works):

I haven't seen Eldon in here yet, so let's pull him in with this CGI render, borrowed from IGN:

Crystalis on the NES (and GBA if you want to get technical).

Now that was a game ahead of its time.

Here's another classic:

Not only is it the Sega CD classic Night Trap, it also appears to be in French.  I guess that would make it Pi├Ęge de Nuit slywink

That's what happens when the random game I'm thinking of is SO old, no standard site has screenshots about it anymore. smile

And the answer to your shot would be Soul Blazer on the SNES. What an awesome Action/RPG for the time.

And, here, another great SNES RPG that I personally loved:

Uh, I found out how to open any new link in a new tab in Firefox:

It's called the middle mouse button.

The only thing that won't work on are Java based links and a few rare instances in general. Other than that, the middle mouse button is your friend.

That screenie looks so familiar...but I can't put my finger on it.  Dangit!

Shame on you - how can't you know what this game is?

It's the classic Blast Corps on the N64. What a simple and outstanding title.

Okay, let's continue my tradition of gaming greats with this screenshot:

Read my review of DMC2 to understand how much I hated it.  I believe my review kept a lot of people from picking the game or at least I hope it did.  I had the review out on the day most people would get it.  Worst $50 I've ever spent and the beginning of me relying on renting more than buying (which I'm glad I did with Fable...that is several levels of suck as well).

Personally I'm enjoying Fable right now. Then again, I'm only about an hour or so into the game.

As far as DMC2 goes, it's regarded as one of the worst video game sequels ever. Sad, no?
15390  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Its a gaming smorgasbord! What are you playing?? on: September 25, 2004, 06:35:00 PM
Personally, I just finished up some of the extras in Star Ocean 3. To say that the game is huge (IF you want to finish it with 100%), is an understatement. You can expect to put in somewhere between 100 to 150 HOURS if you want to see and experience everything that the game has to offer. It also has a totally messed up and outright unexpected plot twist along the lines of KotOR deep inside.

Next up is Fable. After that, either I'll finish up some little extras in Tales of Symphonia, or play any one of the following (of which I'm all over the place in completion):

X-Men Legends
Doom III (PC)
Sudeki
...and many, many, many more. Trust me on this. And there's a ton of games due out between now and the end of the year that I must play...
15391  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Name that Game, Graphic Edition on: September 25, 2004, 04:28:15 PM
*edit* so we stop hitting that page

Well, unfortunately that page won't let you hotlink inline images like you're trying to do. Nor can I get the site to pull it up any other way.

So...care to try again? smile

One quick note - if you're trying to find an image from a relatively recent game, check out our database (link on the upper right of any page that isn't the forums) and search for it. Odds are we have a few screenshots there, and they all support linking.
15392  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [PC] Valve holding Half Life 2 Hostage? on: September 24, 2004, 11:38:17 PM
Now this is an odd article I found over at Gamespot:

Quote
In court filings dated August 27, 2004, VU Games' senior vice president and deputy general counsel Eric Roeder entered the following statement into the record.

"Valve has announced that it will deliver a release candidate version of Half-Life 2 (HL2) (a game required under the 2001 SPA) to Sierra/VUG within the next few weeks. If Valve delivers a release candidate version that complies with the contract and is a Final Milestone, then VUG will have six months to release the product under the 2001 SPA. Valve is pressing VUG to release the product early within that six month window, and its representatives have made a number of public statements without our consent or concurrence that the product will be published and released to the general public in September of this year."

The statement's implication is that VUG, angry with Valve's "public statements," could sit on Half-Life 2 for up to six months. But would VUG use this six-month window as leverage to force Valve to back down from demands contained in its original August 14, 2002 lawsuit?


Uh... That can't be good. Will it happen though? Good question.
15393  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Name that Game, Graphic Edition on: September 24, 2004, 11:33:05 PM
Let's see...that graphic tile set can come from any of a half-dozen games made with the Gold Box D&D set they used so long ago...

Curse of the Azure Bonds, Secret of the Silver Blades, Pool of Radiance, one of the Dragonlance titles...

Heck - I'm gonna use this link as my answer, as that covers about a dozen Gold Box titles, and call it right. biggrin

So, I'll give you an image of the best 3D fighter ever made:

I'm drawing a complete blank there.....

Based on the low resolution picture, and 256 (64?) colors, I'm guessing it's a very old PC title. And a sidescroller of some sort at that.

However, even with my vast knowledge of PC/console titles, I have no clue what it is either.

Quote from: "AgtFox"
Hmmmm...this was a bit part of GT4, something they were selling this year at E3, correct?  Something tells me that if they had dropped it earlier we'd already have the game in our hands.

Yeah, it was a big thing. In fact, it was nicely highlighted in our fact sheet for the game until just recently. smile

With all the car tweaks and whatnot this would be a perfect online title. However, I don't own the Network Adaptor (nor will I ever buy one), so I don't really care.

But, to get the game going - Mortal Kombat.

In the IGN review they mentioned that all the characters are fleshed out very well, with exception to cyclops. There's a reason for that; he's a frickin' cardboard cutout. Even the *COMICS* couldn't make him interesting.

Oh, come now. He was a great Ryu/Ken clone in X-Men vs Street Fighter, which I played in perfect arcade form (and no loading time) with my Japanese import on my brother's Sega Saturn (with 4MB cart).

Why the hell I just said that I have no idea.  :twisted:
