that one on the original demo's with the blocks after you..Kurushi or something?
the super blocky sequel to retro favourite Another World
There was a Time Crisis game that came out which most people never heard of let alone buy. G Police 2 went totally unnoticed. Resident Evil Gun Survivor. Tunnel B1. Porsche Challenge. The Spiderman games by the Tony Hawk's creators were good fun. Vib Ribbon. The totally underrated Syphon Filter 3. C-12. That game you played as a spider in some sewers. This is football.
if you had a steering wheel controller with pedals you could use those to control the up/down movement. remembered that being much cooler at the time. reminds of Area 51
Jet Force Gemini
Micro Machines 64
Dog in a tank
Etc. etc. etc.
Proper hard too that game.
Caesars Palace (christ)
Cool Boarders (brilliant)
LMA Manager (i remember this being fun but may of been clouded)
Theme Hospital (AMAZING FUN!)
may have been CB 2 or 3 not sure
what a stupid fucking thread
esp. considering the 64 is still the best of the Nintendo consoles (with all due respect to the SNES).
Really bizarre platformer with a bloke with pink hair. The demo was on the disc that came with the Playstation but the game itself is nigh on impossible to find these days.
I had a demo of that, it was decent!
managed to get a copy, it's a classic
but never got the full game.
Do it still hold up today?
played the demo so many times.
Surprisingly pretty decent platform/puzzle game where you played as a variety of farmyard animals?
SS:SV is pretty much my favourite N64 game (or right up there, at least, with LoZ:OoT, GE and TNT).
You're just about the first person, other than me, that I've ever seen mention it. Such a fucking brilliant game. Hilarious, and great fun.
the hippo that poos mines. :D
My favourite was the penguins with a parachute or the the farting king rat.
Bloody great fun!
I got stuck at some point in some sort of lab or something though. Think I was a rat at the time.
I think I was actually sort of weird fox or something.
is it the level where you need to zap across to a table in the middle of the room to flick a switch?
I don't think I could manage to switch off the electric gate. spent ages just randomly leaping round the room.
along the wall. Then you can zap across to the table.
I could probably tell you how to complete it from memory. And if not, I'll happily hook up the 64 tonight and play it again.
If you started as a rat, then I think that must be the level where you've got to eat all the poo to get the gold statue.
it's been like 12 years. Still got an n64, but only got Goldeneye for it. Silicon Valley and Diddy Kong Races are the two games I want to play again.
meeeh I'm tired.
Particularly good to get after you've played MK64 to death.
and was always very loyal to it. Never got MK.
you never got MK?! MK is a 64 essential!
I loved the SNES one for its tight tracks and well-balanced power-ups. The tracks in MK64 were too wide and featureless, there wasn't much in the way of jostling for position and the flat sprite-based graphics looked terrible and un-necessary. The only home console MK that I thought captured the spirit of the original quite well was Double Dash for GC, and even that had that awful co-op dynamic.
and Chrono Cross
and I wish they'd released Chrono Cross here so that I could have the opportunity to remember / forget it.
I'll also chuck in Street Racer and RIDGE RACER
Now Cruis'n USA...
N64 - Blast Crops
Blast Crops was the one where you drove a combine harvester
That game where you play a fireman on the playstation
So far ahead of it's time. Shame it just ended mind.
Psygnosis did some great PS1 games. G Police, Colony Wars, Overboard...
There were a few racing games hardly anyone played: Extreme G, Pod Racer and a lot of folks forget Wipeout 64 came out on it.
Mission Impossible was a fairly ok game though hardly awe inspiring. Bubsy 3D? Body Harvest?
By the people who made Gran Turismo. You flew through space in a jetsuit blasting the crap out of everything. I loved it despite never getting past about the 4th level.
so have actually been looking at PS1 games recently ... I fucking loved Dino Crisis, thought it was a far better game than Resident Evil at the time. It sold really well but doesn't seem to be well-remembered.
Vaguely recall it getting a slating on release but I always quite liked ODT too. Same with The Unholy War, Tenchu and Parasite Eve.
What's ODT? Tenchu was wicked too.
I had a terrible demo disc of some 18th centruy themed hack and slasher too all the mags raved about graphically, then caned.
Some more: Gekido - essentially a 3D Streets of rage with 4 players. Return Fire - the best little war game no one played. Alien Resurrection - sold poorly as the ps2 was released that month too but it was BRILLIANT.
It was a French game, which was a pretty big deal back then, and I recall that the main objective was to collect gas to fill up a ship or balloon or something to escape some weird hell-type place full of surreal-looking monsters.
the multiplayer mode on that game was incredible
A list of all the demo discs released in the UK.
have a lot of fond memories of this
And also Rouge Trip Vacation 2021 (which was essentially a forgotten Twisted Metal game)
which is this year :O *looks out for Nightshade*
what are the best ps1 games currently available on the ps network?
Rayman 1&2 and Oddworld
Smackdown 2 (the pinnacle of rasslin' games)
Special shout out to Discworld 2, Eric Idle is the voice of Rincewind for me /nerd
One of the first games that supported the dual shock controller and had anti-piracy software, discovered when my Uni housemate tried to copy it after renting it from blockbusters.
or there's a difference between the PAL and NTSC versions
"Since the end of 1998 Sony introduced the first protected PlayStation games in Japan (PoPoRogue). They added extra code, called LibCrypt, could detect if a Mod-Chip was being used. When it detected it then game could not be played."
Medievil was one of the games that had this, all the UK PAL games that had this feature are here: http://consolecopyworld.com/psx/psx_protected_games_uk.shtml
The first one was the best one though.
It probably looks really old now but the gameplay and sense of humour were great fun, I'm sure it'd still stand up today.
was Vigilante 8. it was a bit of a twisted metal rip off and the graphics and engine weren't great but i spent many many hours of my life playing it. I even loved the sequel that was rushed out before the magazines had a chance to review it. always a sign that a game would be shit.
Did anyone have the disc which came with the Official UK PlayStation Magazine with loads of amazing games?
Looking back it was a great idea.
where people made games themselves?
I can only remember that Bubble Boy one where you led babies away from ghosts or something
I remember a weird little RPG where one of the characters makes a South Park reference, and something where you had to move blocks around on an island?
and Circuit Breakers, come to that.
Some game about Aliens who came to harvest the Carbon Molecules of Humans. Absolutely loved it, but it only got middling reviews in Game Magazines.
How could a game where a native american travels through time and hunts dinosaurs be so shit?
I think that was the most expensive I've ever seen a new game (not including stuff that comes with hardware like Guitar Hero or something, or with add-ons).
many, many months after it was released. Lost interest after about a quarter way through, though. Possibly, because I couldn't handle the control set up.
No other FPS on the N64 had a chance: Goldeneye is basically cross-platform all-time top 10. Nothing in Turok compares to slappers only, Licence to Kill multiplayer with Oddjob. Nothing in life does either.
To give them a fair crack, though, the Turok games were shit in their own right, in and of themselves.
Had no idea how to advance in this game http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eUy7UWuLwxk
It was amazing and is unfortunately stupidly rare, thus expensive these days. Sometimes I wish for those simpler times; my summer holidays used to consist of skateboarding all day, playing Tony Hawk's 1 and 2 all night with mates. Good times.
Absolutely loved that bad boy. Is it on PSN?
There's no way the kids growing up with Skate had as much fun as those of us who grew up with THPS2.
Had one massively frustrating evening with it, then said sod it - dug out THPS2 and it's been smiles all the way since
It's also really smooth compared.
but I miss being able to string together combos with ease. Skate is like the Gran Turismo of skating games to me, and I was always more of a Burnout fan
Was never allowed to play that though as it belonged to my mate Adam's dad and he was weirdly protective over it. Was probably a cracked copy of Custer's Revenge or something.
WCW vs NWO: Revenge - one of the best wrestling games, especially royal rumble mode. There was a guy with pink shorts that ALWAYS turned up as soon as someone got knocked out.
Clayfighter - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ClayFighter_63%E2%85%93
No create a wrestler though, which the WWF ones always had. It was so much fun though, and managed to pack in most of WCW's ridiculously huge roster (although they didn't have their individual themes).
Just before it, you had WWF Warzone. Then just after came WWF Attitude, which was absolutely incredible. The same company that made WCW/NWO then did WWF Wrestlemania 2000 and WWF No Mercy.
and i am still baffled by this thread. name things you have forgotten.
you did forget, but have remembered. as a result of this thread getting the Old Games Hole into gear. kinda like when you go to the supermarket, reach the tills then remember you forgot to get Battenburg
ISS64- shittest commentary ever- THE GAP HAS WIDENED! GOAL! GOOOOOAAAAL!
Mario Kart 64: killing friendships one red-shell-before-the-jump-in-wario-stadium at a time.
Goldeneye- Turbo mode, DK Mode, Slappers only, License to Kill complete with knee-skating- hilarious.
Paper Mario- every bit of this game is genius.
FF8- Squall is a pussy and Selphie is my first video game crush, I remember getting butterflies after the manual described her as "a spunky fighting girl".
Super Smash Brothers- fuck you, Kirby.
though I thought Squall was the coolest dude back in the day.
and yeah selphie <3
FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT
Also, watch your back, or my Frog Drop is gonna get you ...
the only people that say that never even played 7they just think it's the right answer!
not played I, II, V or XII
You could just fly back on to the platform any time you got knocked off. Why would you be anyone else?
Chaos Engine/Smash TV rip off, set in an asylum. Not all that good really.
