New set by published 1 October 2017

Game Preview:


A 1-player fantasy ARPG with a birds-eye-view. It's best described as a Ys-like or RPGed Zelda-like with a broad variety of weapons. It was a Japan-only release but a translation is available. This is a stand-out title on the Mega-Drive, as there are few like it on the system in this style or presentation.
As a young fighter you're tasked with retrieving your master's stolen sword, but it's not quite that simple...

New set by published 1 October 2017

Game Preview:


A 1-2 player (coop) top-down action beat-em-up/shooter, best described as a commando-like with fists. 1 of 4 ports. This time around weapon-play is simplified and limited but the gameplay is more bad-ass than ever. It's not about who has the bigger guns but who's punch, kick, and roundhouse is harder. Roundhouse your way to glory through all 6 acts.

The admin have recently made some decisions for a few set changes:
_____________________________________________________________

1. The Set Panel De Pom was converted into a bonus set for Tetris Attack.

2. The entire set for Strip Fighters II (PCE) has been demoted (removed), not because of the game's content but because the set was so poorly put together and incredibly bug ridden with tens of achievements triggering at wrong times. It was a long list of duplicate achievements for defeating each character on multiple difficulties, ignoring most actual aspects of the game. A dev who's interested in working on this game can start from the ground up and do a much better job.

3. We determined to completely remove Street Fucker from our database. We're not banning adult games, especially licenced ones. But we've determined that this game is too obscene for our library; it isn't licenced and isn't even a close to being a good game. It has no redeeming values in our eyes, even as a joke.

4. Slylock has been approved for a full revision of Snoboarder Kids (N64). A large portion of the set will be removed and replaced with achievements that have better protection and cover the game more adequately. Some of the old set will remain but will recieve additional save protection, and any other changes Sly sees as fit.

5. Four demotions were approved for Super Mario RPG by LupineDream, these were redundant cheeves for killing bosses that are rewarded moments later by getting stars. He's also adding a few achievements to cover some aspects of the game that were previously passed by.

6. One achievement was approved for demotion, suggested by Luuh for Ghostbusters (Gen). It's an achievement to complete the game without using continues. No one has completed it in the four years this set has been up.

If you have any questions about any of these changes, or would like to see needed changes like these to existing game contact the active admins and we'll discuss and vote on the proposed changes.
