I guess I'm still technically new here, but if theres any videogame you want to play on emulator from 1980 to 2002, ive got absolutly every ROM, id be happy to email you a copy.

I'm playin Yoshi's Island, woo! I'm in snow land for now, so far got perfect scores for the first 4 worlds. Saving the bonus levels for the end.

Up next...I'm thinking of playing Seiken Densetsu 3 or Final Fantasy Tactics

I finished Mario 3 a few days ago, holidays are hard for me. Anyhow, I got 3 whistles but didnt use em. did every level. I got the N spade house like a dozen times, but didnt find the white ship.

Now I started Super Mario World, 96* here I come!

Up next week will be Mario World Yoshi's Island. I hated the kiddy graphics as a kid, but I've gotten past em and enjoy the game.

Nobody has done this...that you know of. If it worked, you wouldn't know, would you?

Is there a hack for SD3 with 3 player support? I'm sure someone here has that ability

Crimson Echoes rules, Wooo!

Still my favorite game :)

Magus is an old word for sorcerer, which is his end goal of summoning Lavos.

You're taking it a bit too far.

Comparing something to Nazi Germany does not equal mass murders and concentration camps. The rapid rate of military growth, the sudden change in government, and the authoritarian way in which they appear to run things (granted, El Nido is a suppressed colony) points toward a Nazist regime.

I will concede the comparisons between much older empires could also be applied, but if you consider El Nido to be like Poland (rapid expansion and taking over into another nation), but consider that perhaps Guardia has more in common with America before/during World War I (basically turning its back on the actions of the Triple Alliance), then you could see why they could do what they did to El Nido.

I think his comparison was to the ideals of Germany, not verbatim its actions. Remember historically that the initial goal of the Nazi party was not explicitly genocide, rather that was a path they chose. The initial "problem" was economic, blaming a religion for it was a scapegoat, the same thing is happening in America now, not the same results but the idea of using hate and fear as a scapegoat. So I do see the correlation, but this does happen historically over time, its not always as absolutly direct (where your probably thinking a blatant Nazi connection, more Casablanca or Indiana Jones)

Not sure if this was explicitly stated but I found it funny even the first time that Janus was dropped near a town called Medina and then defines himself as a prophet. Though he wasn't truly one, he time traveled with information before others. Some could argue that he was sent 'through time by a higher power-Lavos', but this goes along the story of a false prophet from Medina. I'm sure this was deliberate.

Chrono Compendium Discussion / Re: THREAD NECROMANCY IS PERFECTLY OKAY

Just checking that bringing back old threads is still okay.

either Chrono Trigger or Mario 3, leaning toward Mario 3.

However you tell me. If you know of the prequel or sequel to Terranigma lemme know. I for one was confused at the end. The whole final parts of the game got confusing, as there were two 'girls' and i kept forgetting by hair color who was suppose to be "your" girl from the underworld verse the one above from Stockholm. The end I THINK was suppose to mean a lead in to something unfinished, so I didnt consider it a tragedy. if i got more drawn into it, i suppose the overall plot was horrendously sad, one of those 'it was all a dream'....sort of. again, confusing for me still. im looking forward to someday replaying it.

What got me was how it had one of its "memorable moments". Chrono Trigger has several, that depressing feeling when you arrive in 2300AD, the first time you hear Chrono's Theme, time when you know your lost as crap. the horrible music of Zozo from FF6, that stuff. In Terrinigma for me, the "aw shit" moment for me when i play it again will be Lahran (or was it Louran?) due to the game's annoying physics, I was in that nightmare in the desert for hours (and given how little i play during the day...weeks) trying to figure out where the hell to go before realizing that one enemy walked into a crevice in the wall. That is going to be a song for me along with level 3 of marble madness which will dwell up in me an "oh crap not this again, the horror!" thought. Its like that moment when a boss jumps out at you and your out of everything and those most awful thought hits you "when was the last time I saved" which is the worst thing you can think.

If it helps anyone, consider this. When trump ran in 2016 is was considered laughable he would get in office because "nobody" wanted him in, yet half the country felt that way.

My point here is that you are not alone in a world of 8 billion. You may feel separated, but even I with all my socially odd views (for some) know there are others. There are some who do not forget, but more importantly there are some called radical dreamers (pun intended) who believe in things like a free internet, more importantly, free expression. I'm sure it seems tricky in a world of closed and deleted topics thinking that 4chan is the last large truly-open forum.

Is the world worse off right now? Yeah. But I am posting this to let you know that the dream of free speech, freedom, is still there, but some on my side really need to be pushed to the limit to do something drastic because we are busy working for those we care about. There is a mass bias online, ive been kicked off of many websites, forums, programs, etc. and not told why. If this forum is still here, it means whoever in charge may not like that im a 2nd amendment promoting, capitalist loving Catholic guy, but are allowing me to stay here. So take hope in knowing that some of us DO care and DO remember these things.

As for my view, I'd vote for "open the locked threads" versus making new ones, seems to be an old view of the internet, but hey, the internet was better in the 90s. Long Live Zeal!

I finished Terranigma (or Terrigama as its sometimes called) a month or so ago.

I understand this was never released in America. Knowing nothing about it, I was told after I beat it that it was like 2 of 3 in a series. The ending was open ended, and it didnt start as a typical RPG, it started with another world, which was different but also cool, but again very very different. I can see how some people didnt vote for it to get sold in America, but had some extremely unique and to this day, still rare and original things about it. The physical gameplay was somehow lacking with the moves, so its an action game like Zelda far more than an RPG like Chrono Trigger. It has its flaws, and they are big ones, but they make it memorable. Difficulty was I'm sure pretty high for its time, making it tricky by modern standards, but aggrivating if you were a novice in the 90s, especially if you didn't have the internet to help you. Its best feature was the soundtrack, different, but on par with Chrono Trigger at times, yes its that good. The oddball stuff was it references...the whole world. but not entirely right. You have the basic continents, labeled Australia and North America and such. Some cities are analogous like when you go to South America and end up in Rio (called Carnival I believe) and yet in America you have a destiniation simply called Colorado.

The other interesting plot point is how in many games you collect items to get a special one, in this game you travel around the world and the actual goal is promoting global free-trade via your learned knowledge of economics and capitalism. Interesting plot for a 90s game huh? at one point you meet someone studying a new thing called Electricity, the man's name is "Eddy", a reference to Eddy lines (if your not in the electrical field, just look it up). And another time you help the invention of the camera, go to other cities and take pictures and spread em around to encourage vacationing. As a result, cities actually grow, buildings get bigger, like you go back to an old city, but on the map now its two buildings instead of one, and when you walk in, the entire city map is twice the size and nothing is in the same place.

Very different and unusual game, but I liked it.
