Street Fighter 2: Champion Edition for the PC Engine. Looks and sounds fantastic, plays well with the NEC Avenue 6-Button pad, though the input timing seems ever-so-slightly different than the arcade version. I'm already getting accustomed to it, but I recall the Sega Genesis version, when played with the excellent first-party 6-button pad felt dead-on right out of the gate... Hmm

Really... I always heard the TG16 one was the best out of all of them. Maybe that was just a myth.

I do feel that the Genesis version (though inferior in terms of graphics, voices and sound effects to NEC's port) is closer, if only by the smallest of margins, to the arcade version in terms of control input and response time. Then again, we're comparing control pads to arcade sticks here but the Avenue 6 pad just feels a bit less smooth than Sega's 6-button controller. Again, the difference is so minuscule it's probably only perceptible to the most discerning, scrutinizing and obsessive longtime SF2 fanatics (like me). Really though, the NEC 6-button pad is undeniably great and IMO it absolutely mops the floor with the SNES "Milk-Bone" controller. It's just not the absolute greatest in my eyes.

Interestingly, the PC Engine GT's d-pad responsiveness feels better than that of the console's 6-button controller and is about on par with Sega's 6-button performance. Which brings me to a short rant, should you choose to entertain it...

SF2:CE's button configuration options are absolutely fucking TERRIBLE for play on the 2-button PC Engine GT!!! It's infuriating that you are literally forced to assign a button to switch between punches and kicks instead of assigning them independently, even though you technically have four buttons on the portable to work with! If I could just assign the roundhouse & short kicks and fierce & jab punches to individual buttons I'd be just fine, even cutting it down to fierce and roundhouse only would be acceptable. For some goddamned reason nobody thought to include the option of eliminating a strike or two to avoid screwing up the rhythm of gameplay with the ridiculously disruptive "switch" button. Completely, totally inexcusable that this was made mandatory unless you're using the 6-button pad. Thank christ I bout that pad or it would've tainted the console's gameplay experience too! Absolute idiocy on the part of NEC's programmers, they obviously weren't as familiar with actually playing SF2 as they should've been or this oversight would have been avoided. Angry

So yeah, I'll still play it on NEC's handheld but the developer's stupid, gameplay-botching decision will forever make it less enjoyable for portable play than it should be. Morons. Sarcasm

Crazy Taxi on the iPad. I've managed to get an S rank on Arcade and Original modes, I'm just working through the Crazy Box challenges now.

It works rather well on iOS and it's certainly worth three quid.

When I heard Crazy Taxi was coming to iPad I assumed it would be impossible to play effectively with a touch screen. Glad to hear I'm apparently dead wrong! If I ever get an iPad I'll definitely pick it up.

Been playing a lot of Final Fantasy VIII lately. I definitely see why this particular entry is so polarizing. There's a ton of micromanagement required if you want to really play effectively. I'm really enjoying it so far though. The storyline is pretty good, especially once you get to disc 2.

Also: Minecraft, The Unfinished Swan, Sonic Adventure 2 HD...

I've been thinking about revisiting FF8. I hated it the first time I tried playing through it and never went back.
 
reelmojo
I tried it when it first came out as well, but got stuck and didn't have the ambition to look up what to do. My main complaint now is that once you fully understand the Junction/Draw system there is absolutely zero challenge. The game rewards you for drawing the max amount of magic out of monsters by allowing you to junction it to your base stats and make them stronger so obviously you're going to feel inclined to do so. But then, even though the enemies scale to your level, nothing in the game can challenge you. The optional fight against Diabolos was the last time I actually needed a strategy in a fight and that's within the first few hours of the game. I'm 30 hours in now and bosses don't even scare me.

But the story is really interesting, the characters are cool for the most part, and the music is great. It's keeping my interest despite the lack of challenge but in the end I don't think it'll top FF7 or FF9 in my book.
 
DarakuTenshi
I'm currently playing through FF7 on my Vita... but it's not as good as I remember. I'm sure if they ever did do a remake I'd be all over it, but this game just has not aged well. It's funny how I can go back to FF6 and it won't phase me, but polygonal games I just look at them and say "ewww."

I really want to play FFVIII, i bought it but havent got round to playing it. I just thought i would like it when it came out because i preferred the (slightly) more mature look, rather than the big heads of FFVII.

As for FFVII, i always enjoy it at first (I have restarted it about 5 times) but i never get far beyond the first disc before my attention wanders. Also i recently heard the UK version has the worst translation, it is pretty lame at times, although quite charming at others...

Retro-wise, I've devoted myself to an obscure Enix game for the PSX called Valkyrie Profile. It is loosely based on Norse mythology. This is truly an unsung masterpiece and a break away from the traditional RPG formula they (Enix) invented (and that Squaresoft stole!).

FFVIII? Sorry, that has to be one of the least original games Squaresoft ever made.

I recently bought Afterburner for my Saturn, so i tried that out today, but i am still in love with Space Harrier so 10 minutes later i was playing that. I have an analogue controller now and it works really well with it. Space Harrier still gets my vote for the best super-scalar game ever made.

I am really into old computers too at moment and have just started playing Zarch on Acorn Archimedes. Which is a game i always wanted to play back when it came out! I really like the graphics, reminds me of a 3D version of Sonic's green hill zone! you need a lot of skill just to be able to fly the spaceship, no hand holding like today. This was my 2nd go, check out my minus score Pfft

My Candy Cab was just gathering dust and I decided that I had to play on it more often. So I plugged in my eX-Board and played a lot of Arcana Heart 2 ver. 2.1 and Daemon Bride...having lots of fun!

Two of the best 32X games are Space Harrier and After Burner. I've never played the Saturn versions.

They are great, i have never played on a 32X but i imagine they must be pretty much the same.

I am still playing Zarch, i finally got onto Wave 3. I am getting a lot better at it now. I am between Meagre and Unsatisfactory. ha!

I am almost 'Acceptable' in Zarch now, after about 8 hours total play! I think that high score table is a bit cheeky.

I snapped this pic of the sea-monster (very rare), as far as i know there isn't a picture of it on the net anywhere. so was quite pleased to get this. This was only the 2nd time i have seen him.

I still play SSFIV a couple of times a week. I have just started playing as Gouken. I lost my first 5 matches but i was competitive in all of them, so i think he is probably quite a good character. This was my first win, although you can see i am not that good as him yet.

I though Zarch looked familiar.... we had the demo version called Lander on the Acorns when I was at school. I remember coming back after the summer and they'd built a new computer room that had about 12 or so of these awesome new Archimedes systems in there. The rest of the school still had BBC Micros and Masters kicking around in the rooms. The best one was in the DT lab that had the Turtle robot plugged into it.

very cool SD, i have never played Lander but yes was the proto-type for Zarch. You were lucky. We just got RM Nimbus's with some top-down train game, and BBCs of course! The Archimedes was a pretty amazing computer back in 1987. Although it was sadly undersupported for games. I used to be quite dismissive of it as a games machine, because it's just a processor really - no support chips (no sprites or playfields) but turns out it was a *mighty* processor.

Acorn developed the ARM chip as the CPU for the Archimedes, which is pretty much everywhere now days, so it's legacy lives on. My 3DS is powered by an ARM11 (the original Archimedes used an ARM2)
