Ideas for games for Retro Shamer

Post by yethboth » Sun Feb 17, 2008 11:40 am

Here are a couple of games that I strongly request should be featured in a future Retro Shamer features please:

1. Shaq Fu

2. Crypt Killer

What on earth were these people thinking of when they created these two dreadful games. :cry:


What other dreadful games does everyone think that should be in a future feature of Retro Shamer?

E.T, that game has a heck of a story about it which is shown in the Wintergreen Music video 'When I wake up'. The game got rushed and courtsy of that theres about 5 million carts buried somewhere in the Desert. Anyone wish to borrow a shovel?

Battle Arena Toshinden It was a bad game at the time but it's aged really badly too, those polygons are textured terribly. Join with that annoying characters and the simpllistic playabilty very bad

I feel strongly that the hideous-ness of Star Fighter 3000 for Saturn and PlayStation be acknowledged by the community. :evil: I know it may be a little too modern to be in RG but it's such an appalling conversion. :cry: I'm a huge fan of the 3DO version, and the Saturn and PlayStation would've been capable of hosting a superior version if it was converted by someone with talent or who could be bothered to do it properly. As it is, however, they are both so bad, far inferior to the 3DO version in fact, that I can't believe they were even released. The graphics are atrocious, and on systems with superior capabilities too...

Crazy Ivan - what do you mean the player would want a draw distance!!?? Played this the other week for a giggle becasue I remembered the crappy fmv and the even crappier voice acting, but theres just no gameplay.

Pit Fighter!

I remember that at school we were all crazy about this game, but the megadrive / snes versions were terrible - and I'm pretty sure the original arcade wasn't much better.

Digitised graphics does not a good game make!

Same here... I think myself and my friends loved it because the digitised graphics made the violence feel far more exciting. But even in my mind, i can just visualise those two characters bobbling their way around the screen, with that horrendous stripey floor / background and the crowd with three frames of animation. Urgh!

Yep I agree with that, saw the screenshots in a magazine early mid 90's and thought brilliant, the motor bike screens with Kaneda's bike looked good and the platform bits looked interesting.....got to play it many years later and what a disaster...wasted licenese...

Always wanted someone to translate the Akira adventure game on the Famicom as well, got that on an emulator but my Japanese consits of Konnichi wa, sayounara and Baka Gaijin (stupid forginer) so kinda stuck at the best of times....
