Re: ZSNES is not dead - Still in development

The best SNES emu available that I've used would have to be the April 17th(this year) test build release of 9x. That emu is quick enough to run on fairly weak PCs and gives the user a gazillion different audio & visual config options. To top it all off, it has perfect sound and shader support. E...

Re: WHAT GAMES ARE YOU PLAYING THESE DAYS

Been replaying some old SNES games like Yoshi's Island, gonna replay CT and Super Metroid next and boy do I need to continue playing Xenoblade(not X, original). XBC is a HUGE timesink though. Also, regarding MMOs I haven't touched that genre since friggin Ultima Online in 97-99 along with some fan s...

Re: WHAT GAMES ARE YOU PLAYING THESE DAYS

All I do during the intro is get as many hearts as possible with the secret stairs and spam hydro storm. It's basically an insta-kill for both forms of Drac. Having played Rondo as well I find it really cool that the last boss of that game was re-imagined in SOTN. Rondo Dracula is known for being on...

Re: WHAT GAMES ARE YOU PLAYING THESE DAYS

Oh and someone correct me if I'm wrong but I believe luck mode is the only way to play SOTN with(minus the obvious luck) terrible starting stats. If there's a way to play the game on "hard mode" without the luck bonus, I've never heard of it. Also the Drac Tunic, while pretty decent is ver...

Re: WHAT GAMES ARE YOU PLAYING THESE DAYS

Oh yeah, that's how I got my first Ring of Arcana/Rare Ring, and once you get to the inverted castle(only works once you get there) you can also get the Dracula Tunic via the same method of smacking the librarian from beneath. It does not drop until you have reached the reverse castle though.(trust ...

Re: WHAT GAMES ARE YOU PLAYING THESE DAYS

Agreed, assuming said enemies are not very mobile. I'd say the easiest and most disappointing boss fight in SOTN is Death. He's the dickhead that steals your stuff at the beginning of the game and it kinda sucks that even without cheap crap like the Crissagrim and such you can just wipe the floor wi...

Re: WHAT GAMES ARE YOU PLAYING THESE DAYS

Yeah the Shield Rod+Alucard Shield as well as the Crissagrim/Val Manwe are so stupidly broken that they are basically just cheats. The Alucard Sword is very fast, powerful and kinda cheap as well but I don't feel too guilty using it. The Yasutsuna katana is a rare drop from Werewolves and it acts so...

Re: WHAT GAMES ARE YOU PLAYING THESE DAYS

He's located in a tight space near a room entrance so you're not really in a position to jump over the guy. You'd be much more likely to die trying to do that rather than just killing him. The Basilard dagger is good if you wanna melee him since those blue guards as well as their stronger palette sw...

Re: WHAT GAMES ARE YOU PLAYING THESE DAYS

Spirit summoning is for people that can't land a soul steal. Sarcasm aside, early on in Luck mode you don't even have enough mana for soul steal. I'm talking the period right after Death takes your stuff before you fight Slogra & Gaibon. You have such a tiny amount of MP that the 50MP soul stea...

Re: WHAT GAMES ARE YOU PLAYING THESE DAYS

In that case when I start on the DS CV games, Order of Ecclesia will be my first. Aria is incredibly easy just like SOTN and you're certianly not the only person who has said OoE is a challenging game. Hope it keeps touch controls to a bare minimum or preferably none at all because that's a big time...

Re: WHAT GAMES ARE YOU PLAYING THESE DAYS

Not only is SOTN inherently an easy game even on "hard" mode, but due to my obsessive item farming I always end up insanely overpowered by the end of the game. Farming for God's Garb from Final Guards levels you up really, really fast and it can take a good while for it to drop even with t...

Re: WHAT GAMES ARE YOU PLAYING THESE DAYS

I certainly wish luck mode were available from the start, because the normal game is too easy unless you're a total beginner who has no idea what to do. Even on luck mode, once you get the diamond knuckles and Mirror Armor you're pretty much good, at least in my view since I always use fast weapons ...

Re: WHAT GAMES ARE YOU PLAYING THESE DAYS

Yeah the PSP VAs being bad is one thing we totally agree on. It's like a really bad anime dub from the early 00s or something. Richter's high ass voice would make sense if he were 19 like he was in Rondo I guess but he's like 24 in SOTN, and Alucard just doesn't have any sort of charm at all. Richte...

Re: WHAT GAMES ARE YOU PLAYING THESE DAYS

I suppose you are just more into B-movie type melodrama than I am. It's just not my thing which is why I prefer the admittedly more bland but significantly less ridiculous fan translation. My only real(albeit very minor) gripe is that when checking for items I don't have online, many items have comp...

Re: WHAT GAMES ARE YOU PLAYING THESE DAYS

I dunno man, I like the fan trans much more, and here's a video of the opening battle which is kind of this trans in a nutshell. It's not quite as melodramatic but there's definitely some of that in there, but imo it doesn't go overboard like the 1997 translation. The video is in 240p with tons of a...

Re: WHAT GAMES ARE YOU PLAYING THESE DAYS

Gil, have you tried out that SOTN hack yet? If so I imagine you'll find the dialogue a bit bland because you seem to dig the super corny stuff more than I do. My problem with the original US dub was that it was absolutely hilarious the first 5 times I listened to it(namely Richter) but I don't reall...

Re: WHAT GAMES ARE YOU PLAYING THESE DAYS

Yeah it does take the fun out of a game when an item you really want just wont drop(like double Heaven Swords to activate its special attack) but I literally got 2 Crissagrim drops on luck mode within a span of around 10-15 minutes as well as the Fist of Tulkas(or Orichalcum in the trans I'm playing...

Re: WHAT GAMES ARE YOU PLAYING THESE DAYS

There's plenty of corny shit in this trans as well, just not as much as there is in the original '97 US script. As you said regarding the equipment bug though, yeah the game's super easy already even on Luck Mode without cheating. I did a cheat/test run first just to make sure the hack didn't crash ...

Re: WHAT GAMES ARE YOU PLAYING THESE DAYS

I didn't grow up playing SOTN as a kid so I don't have any emotional connection to the English voice acting, so I simply see this translation as a better alternative as far as the VAs are concerned. I can see what they were trying to do with Dracula in the US version with the actor trying to sound g...

Symphony of the Night, JP fan translated version. I never played this much back when it was released but now I understand why so many people love it; it's ADDICTIVE.

I assume he meant flash carts. That said, it looks like the higher-quality 256 GB SD cards are around 200. I briefly looked up SD2SNES and saw like a $190 pricetag when I made that post so yeah I mean the high-quality SD cards. I have never used one and don't really know anything about them, so the...

Re: ZSNES is not dead - Still in development

The GOOD SD cards are insanely expensive for sure, else I would've picked one up for personal use a long time ago. I'll probably get one eventually but when you have more important stuff to deal with it's hard to justify spending almost $200 on an SD card. I wish you well dude and I look forward to ...

I would probably not took that as sarcasm although, the amount of work that was done (and time lost) it could have been taken seriously anyway...

Re: ZSNES is not dead - Still in development

My mistake then if it wasn't meant to be taken literally. Sarcasm doesn't translate that well to text often times because body language and voice tone play such a big part in person.
