Re: Quick Reference Guide to Retro Metroidvania/Platform Adventure Games

As I explain on the Outliers page: "A page for those games that are related to the genre in some ways, but don't quite fit in for one or more reasons, generally relating to the their overarching structure or a lack of platforming. I've decided not to include strictly overhead/top down view action ad...

Re: Non-gaming music that reminds you of game music

Casiopea - Sounds like a lot of 80s game music, particularly some of Sega's arcade games MSTRKRFT Nine Inch Nails' more ambient work (Quake). Some of Brian Eno's ambient work sounds a bit like it as well. Jean-Michel Jarre YMO I agree with some of Gary Numan's work as well Anamanaguchi (duh), Slagsm...

Re: Castlevania

Bloodlines is roughly on par with Rondo of Blood in terms of gameplay. SCIV is the best after those, though it plays a bit different in that you can whip in eight directions as well ass swing it around more freely, plus you can control your jumps in mid-air. This makes some parts, especially early o...

Re: Amiga musicians/C64 musicians

The "lowest common denominator" on Amiga was insanely high, it's almost hard to find bad sounding games compared to other contemporary platforms. Some of my fave composers: Chris Hülsbeck/Huelsbeck​ Rock 'n Roll (AMI), ​R-Type (AMI, different) Turrican II (AMI, 1991), Super Turrican (SNES, 1993), Tu...

Re: Why are there so many Amiga fans on this forum?

Thanks. Well it sounds like you and I are mostly on the same page then? I just think there's a point resolution-wise (and not upscaled low-res) where it's no longer pixel art, even if I can't say exactly when just going by the dimensions as it's also about the techniques used. Higher res art tends t...
