Comiket 65, catching up on gaming
- Parsec47 (WinPC-jp, free shooting!)
- Doom 1: Inferno via PrBoom 2.2.4 (WinPC-us, my first FPS)
Now stacking:Another Comiket (CM65) has come and gone. Well even before that I was busy busy busy with work so I had no time to play a long game. But here I am on my break enjoying free time.
- Ever 17 Premium Edition
sci-fi save the damsel in the distress adventure)
- Warning Forever 0.99
CM65 edition (WinPC-jp, shmup on time)
- Banshiryu (WinPC-jp, kasuri buzz shmupping with bullet on all sides)
- other CM65 games I forgot to mention
- Prikura Daisakusen (SS-jp, isometric anime gal shooting)
- Double Dragon Advance (GBA-us, retro street fighting updated for the 21st century)
First off to start is Parsec47. This game is really really good. On my lowly P3-500 I have opened up all practice, normal, and difficult. For hard I only need three more boxes. The trick is to die. Yes, if you restart a level and make sure to get enough lives from gobbling up the pointage you will probably be able to open up the next level. I even play this game at work. Great.
I want to play Soushun, and I even loaded my laptop with it. The only problem is that I need to click on the application icon. I saw that this game was going used for 2500 yen. It went 1000 yen up! Whoa.
I've been playing some Doom. Mighty fun this simple gaming. Why does the sound of a shotgun sound so invigoratingly satisfying? And I discovered punching. Oh well. An online personality says that PrBoom does nothing for them while ZDoom is the bomb. Well I like PrBoom since it was working well for me, but I can see how ZDoom has its advantages.
As for the games I got for my visit to Akihabara: I had to get Double Dragon Advance once I saw it. I was playing the game on a demo unit at Messe Sanoh, running and jumping into baddies like it was the good fight. This isn't as simple as Final Fight One. This is way better. I remember the fun I had playing the Double Dragon version for the SNES. I didn't bring my GBA to Tokyo this time because I knew I would be busy prepping for Comiket. I can't wait to play it at home!
I bought Purikura Daisakusen on a whim and I regret it because I probably haven't touched my Saturn in like... well let me consult my gamelog for the details. It's just that I don't think I will be playing this game when I have other Saturn games stacked away. Besides, I haven't figured out why I bought this game instead of Gunstar Heroes. That game was cheaper.
I seem to have developed a better attitude towards buying games. Or at least I hope so. At least I have a stronger feeling of regret for stacking games this time around.
But Comiket games are different. These games are not available except at Comiket so I gotta buy them. It's a must. For example, Amusement Maker games. These guys just don't understand that they have fans! Consequently they don't sell at those doujin soft shops.
I should be able to update my log during the New Year's break. See you next year!
