What happened to the sales & giveaways thread? Or was that on the old board and I'm mis-remembering?

Anyway, Obduction (a surreal adventure game made in 2016 by the creators of Myst) is free for 24 hours on GOG.

The ending of the words is ALMSIVI.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/granzella/r-type-final-2-aiming-for-a-brand-new-the-best-shmup-ever

Things to take away from this:

1. MOAR R-TYPE!!!
2. R-Type Final 2 is a terrible name.
3. Granzella is bad at Kickstarter. I only just found out about this and it is the last day. Last half-day, I guess.
4. For two and a half grand, you can get them to record custom audio for your copy of the game, so you can have the launch sequence flight controller SAY YOUR NAME when you start a game. That's ridiculously awesome. For ten grand, you get a custom fighter, unique to you, with personal naming rights. This is, somehow, less awesome.
5. I'm sad they are very clearly not making it to the two million dollar stretch goal, because it would be nice for R-Type Final 2 to have one more fighter than R-Type Final did.

He's bullshitting just a little bit saying that R-Type Final was the "last game", since a bunch of PSP games and remakes came out after...

The highly awaited, fan-funded (mostly) Shenmue 3 PC version is now an Epic Games Store exclusive:
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ysnet/shenmue-3/posts/2532170

We don't know yet if Sweeney opened his mighty Fortnite checkbook to sweep out another game out of the reach of Valve's hands, but what we do know is that this comes out from its publisher, Deep Silver.

Needless to say, some backers are VERY pissed off with this move. Not because they can no longer get the game from Steam (noone would be complaining if they decided to take it to GOG, for one), but because noone likes what's Epic is doing with their store, their awful launcher, or the fact PC gamers don't want more fragmentation in the market.

Unfortunately, Deep Silver is not giving refunds due to this reason.

And before you dare complaining about me complaining on games I'm not going to play on stores I'm not going to be purchasing content: While certainly I have no horse in this race, and I consider Valve to be awful on its own merits (censorship of sexual content being the one that bugs me off the most), but they aren't pulling the same "buying exclusives" stunt on Steam - most games are Steam-exclusive solely because their publishers want it that way, they fear "piracy" if they go DRM-free on GOG, or they're simply lazy and keep fueling the "network effect", not because Uncle Gaben is giving away free money just to kill their competition. (And their CEO isn't comparing people that want to play their games on the OS of their choice with "those that voted for 'other parties' just because they didn't liked A Certain Candidate", which is a easy way to burn quite some bridges with the gaming community, no matter how niche are certain segments of it)

Once the "battle royale" fad wears off and Fortnite joins the junkyard of deceased online games noone plays anymore, it would be interesting to see what happens to the Epic Games Store. Unless they reach feature parity with Steam or they adopt a GOG-esque model, I forecast nothing but dark clouds on their future.

Ah well, I guess Yu Suzuki won't be getting that new Ferrari anytime soon...

Nobody mentioned that it seems "Secret of Mana 2" finally got officially localized.
For 40 bucks for the Mana collection, I'd want to wait for a physical copy though (even though I already have a phys JP copy). Though I hear that may be coming as a LE.

And yet SD3 is ALSO getting a remake which will be localized as well.

So after waiting 24 years we go from none to TWO localizations.

Also, Romancing SaGa 3 is coming officially in a remake form.
Though I'm guessing digitally. Not sure if it is being packed as a compilation with, apparently, some Vita SaGa game or if they are being ported individually.
Nice to see, as the RS3 fan-trans has long needed a proper font hack (so we can name O U R P L A Y E R correctly without needing a ZST hacking tool)

It was the last "real" R-Type, since the PSP games were SRPGs instead of scrolling shooters.

Sega apparently showed off a fucking PANZER DRAGOON REMAKE, and I am having trouble believing this is a thing that is actually happening. I thought Sega forgot they owned this.
It isn't April first, is it? I need it to not be April first right now. Someone tell me this is real.

Oh yeah, played the original on a rented Saturn back in '95.



Game was pretty impressive back then but I don't know how well the on-rail gameplay would hold today...as weird as it sounds looking back at the original with all its jankiness, the game was more of a technical showcase, I think (plus it had a very impressive orchestral soundtrack).



FFVII is actually looking pretty promising. Though Cloud looks like Lighting from FFXIII for some reason...


Shenmue 3 looks like it will be, well, a Shenmue game, which is good imo.

I don't know why I expected Battle Arena Toshinden in that blind link.

I'd call it an art game. It cares a lot about aesthetics, and the soundtrack ties into that. Which is a sound approach for a rail shooter, really. You have a fixed path with a fixed travel time, so you can control the player's view of the world to a much greater degree.
Were it designed a few years later, it would've been a light gun game. That's where all the rail shooter development wound up.


I think PD Orta showed that the game concept can still hold up in the modern era. Though semi-related Crimson Dragon bombed horribly(which seems to be largely credited to the publisher micromanaging development).

Heavens no. The success of BAT was always something of a mystery to me. I thought the game was not really good, even back then. Tobal No. 1 (though that did came out a year later I think) now that was an amazing 3D fighting game. And of course: it was commercial failure unlike BAT (and had it not came with a FFVII demo disc it would probably have been completely overlooked).

We didn't get Tobal 2 as a result. Well the rest of the world didn't. I did though. First game I ever imported. I don't even recall how that worked exactly (I think I saw an ad in a magazine or something...possibly from Next Generation). Took like a month or two to receive the package in the mail but it did came through. Mind you, I didn't even knew about the internet back then.

Whether it was good or not had little to do with whether it was hype or not.
...
Though I think Toshinden's success had a lot to do with being a 3D fighter in a time when there weren't many. According to teh wikis, it actually introduced z-axis movement into the genre, almost a year before Soul Edge. It could be argued as the FIRST 3D fighter.


Teh wikis also reminds me that it was a Playstation game first. I only ever saw the Saturn version.

Well if you want to get technical, Virtua Fighter 2 (released in 94) had z-axis movement type dodges similar to what you had in BAT. But weirdly enough, only two characters (Shun Di and I think Lion - the two new characters) had those z-axis evade moves.

I didn't find a vid with players actually doing the move but this FAQ mentions it if you search for "side step" (back/down+Defense for Shun Di) and mentioned here also.

edit: Meh, just took a screenshot from MAME and yeah, it's there. Down/Back+G.


Soul Edge (which I had not seen in the arcade so it's not like I was already hyped for it) was absolutely amazing on PSX. That was even more impressive than Virtua Fighter 2 in some respects, despite running on less powerful hardware and at 30fps instead of 60.

When I saw that on the Nintendo Direct I had a mindsploding nerdgasm :D

Now I just wish for a remake of the Soul Blazer trilogy...
