In the last few days, I've been looking for some new (old) stuff to play, to see if there was anything I could get into. On one note, I found my favorite pinball game of all time again, Alien Crush, for the Turbo Grafx 16. Surprisingly, it still stands up against even the newest and 'best' pinball games to this day, and in my opinion, still beats the crap out of them. With all of the bonus stages and bosses, as well as it being generally easier to play than most pinball games, it can give hours upon hours of fun in a single gaming session.
I've also been looking through some NES/Famicom games and found one that I'm playing currently called Cosmo Police Galivan. There apparently is an English version to this, but I've only got the Japanese version. I suppose one could call it an action rpg.
Another game that I was surprised to see on the famicom was Dragon Wars. This is an old DOS and Commodore 64 RPG game I remember from back in the day. It was kind of like the earlier versions of might and magic, dungeon magic, even wizardry. Unfortunately, it was only released on the NES in Japan as far as I can tell, but there apparently is an English translated ROM around the net that I need to try.
Another game I've messed with a little bit is called Jaseikin Necromancer, another Japanese game, for the PC Engine. This was actually the first RPG to hit the pc engine (turbo grafx 16) and surprisingly, it had pretty good graphics and game play. I've figured out how to fight, how to heal, and what the menus mean. The main thing is to figure out the spells and items and it should be a relatively easy game afterward. As with most JRPGs, talking to everyone and exploring everywhere gets you to where you need to be. The worst thing with JRPGs is when you have to talk to some one several times and can't figure out where to go or what to do next.
Anyone else playing any classics?
