"F$#^ing long games..." , posted Mon 25 Jul 12:40post reply

I want a game that is relatively short that I can go and beat and feel fulfilled about.

Right now all the games I have sitting around my house are games that will take from 20 to 40 plus hours to finish, and I'm just not in the mood for that right now.

Things that are pretty are preferable, but not required.

Is this limited to non-imports?

Yeah, Space Channel 5-2 was a pretty fun game. They never released it in America, did they?

How short? I'm playing Haunting Grounds now, the game is pretty short but it's not a finish-in-one-sitting kind of short... more like about 8-10 hours.

IIRC they released the PS2 version along with the first one as a collection.

Virtually any fighting game on the planet. Destroy all Humans! is also surprisingly short.

I personally don't hate long games since I almost never finish games as it is.

I'm not in the mood for fighting games since I've played so many so much...

Ikaruga I've already played a whole lot.
ESPgaluda ditto, somewhat less so.

How is mushihime? What are the systems like? Sometimes I tire of Cave shooters because they become more and more Donpachi-like in their style and bullet patterns...

Another Code isn't out in English. I'd play it if it were in a language I could understand.

Space Channel 5 Part 2: the amusing thing is that the past few days I've actually been looking for this game! A bit hard to find in retail outlets (new/used) for me... though I remember seeing tons of used copies in Berkeley's EB...

I'm trying to satisfy some urges by playing Shadowrun right now, dunno why that game...

You can import the European version of Another Code, it has the English language. But it should be released in the USA anytime now I presume.

what's the quality of the translation?
are there any little things that add meaning to the experience that aren't translated? is there any speech, and if so, what language is that in?

On topic, I'll go with classics... Another World, Beneath a Steel Sky if you like adventures, it's freeware now (download from www.scummvm.com, I think). A small jewel.

And... I'll think of more. ^_^;

Yeah, I'm interested too.

And, more important, does it have Japanese language option?

heh. I talked all about this on other boards...here too I think.

translation is apparently fine, and the game takes 5 or 6 hours to beat, and is not hard. dunno about japanese option.

I'm not importing, since it's like $60 US before shipping, whereas the US version itself will be $30~40, and basically the same game.

I say get Beyond Good and Evil, which takes 8-10 hours, and is largely wonderful.

I've actually been playing BG&E on my PC. It seems pretty good...

I beat Beneath a Steel Sky already... the plot didn't go the way I expected it to off of what I had heard and seen, but it was good.

Out of this World/Another World gave me super rage when I played it on the SNES. I don't think I can muster the discipline to defeat it.

I played Dororo up to somewhere in the 4th chapter... and then I checked a FAQ to see how many chapters there were... OMG. Dororo is crazy long.

Excluding Original mode which plays more like Raiden, Mushihimesama feels a lot like Dodonpachi, expecially in its scoring system. It's good, but there may not be much in it for you if you're burnt out on DDP.

There is no Japanese language option in the European version of Another Code, unfortunately.
Beyond Good & Evil is a very nice game indeed.

I'm having lots of fun with Sengoku Basara right now. So much fun, I was about to start a topic on it to give a more favorable impression than early demo reports gave (not that I blame people for thinking poorly of the game after only playing a level). If you like 3D beatemups (or think you could) and don't want to spend a lot of time, it's a great game. Actually, you can win the game in half an hour if you don't screw around and play on normal, but I find that I like the game more and more the more I win it.

I just went and beat BG&E. The ending parts were great. The game almost felt long at some points, but I'm glad I stuck with it... though the pretty visuals and nice audio might've kept me in anyway.



Spoiler (Highlight to view) -
I wonder just what happened at the end with the Domz overlord and Jade... it almost seemed like Jade either took control of the thing, or "came together" with it... But then, Pey'j has the Domz growth on him from being resurrected by Jade... so in fact, the source of the Domz is ultimately Jade, and by "giving them life", she turns them into Domz... I wonder what the Domz priest meant when he said that they gave Shauni a human form... I'm not sure whether or not I want a sequel to it.

I heard that it had a similar look to Snatcher...
...btw, I'm playing the SNES one. I tried the Genesis one, and it definitely seems like the better RPG, but something about the SNES one clicks with me, even though it's gameplay is by all rights THIN.

Now that you mention it though, I vaguely remember seeing a Sega CD Shadowrun in a magazine ages ago. Was it any good?

Funny, I have the same opinion: the Genesis game is arguablely the better of the two, but for some unexplainable reason I preffer the SNES one. It's been awhile since I've played it though. Maybe I should pull it out again...

There's a nearly confirmed rumor that there will be a Shadowrun game for the 360 (already in development even), though it'll be an FPS, which I think is lame.

"Shadowrun Mega CD" , posted Wed 27 Jul 00:27post reply

Hell, the MEGA CD version was the best one. Nothing to do with the SFC and MD versions. It was a RPG that included the dice rolls of the original Shadowrun, produced by Compile at the end of the Mega-CD's life. The adventure / mistery parts were indeed displayed in a Snatcher fashion, whereas moves on the world were displayed like a traditional 16-bit RPG and fights were foughts la Shining Force II. It only came out in Japan, sadly.

There are screens on Mechakucha's excellent page.

Yeah, I've heard that one too.
It might be good. I don't know.
It also might just turn into a Deus Ex clone, which would suck.

I've never had the systems explained to me in that way... that's REALLY interesting. I've only ever seen screenies of the game. Shame that it only came out in japan... what I wonder though is... since when did japanese companies ever pick up western RPG systems?
