Appreciate the input on these survival horror games opa, stickem, and Ack. I saw a listing on ebay for Carrier and Blue Stinger for about the cost of one of the game's current going rates. Maybe I should have jumped on it, but have some other games currently stuck in the mail.

I saw some footage of that Alone in the Dark title a few months back and thought it looked decent -- good to hear it's recommended. I'll have to check that one out down the line. Alone in the Dark on the 3DO was the first survival horror game I experienced back in the day, as my cousins had it.

I've wanted to try this for a while, the gameplay footage I've seen looks pretty good. Glad to hear you liked it as well. Did you end up finishing the game?


another snow day home from work so i spent a few go's on this one today. the first playthrough, i made it to the final stage again before it glitched on me, not advancing the game after all bad guys cleared. next playthrough beat it, takes about an hour with 5 stages/worlds. at some point i'll run through it again with the other 2 characters. basically streets of rage 3 on the saturn (but easier) with more wackiness thrown in. heck of a soundtrack as well, combos to pull off, double jumps.

I'm envious of your snow day but hope the weather isn't too harsh where you are. That's too bad about the glitch throwing off your first game, but it happens -- part of the joy of playing on original hardware. Lol, but it's awesome you were able to finish the game. I think I'd really enjoy this title, as I'm a fan of the SOR series. I'm gonna check it out through emulation tonight, but I might also have to add it to my Saturn want list.

Beat emups weren't really my thing when they came out so I'm just now getting into to those.

usually if it's a game I like that I've pirated, i purchase it within a certain price range. I have stacks of cdrs i don't play anymore because I've purchased the games.

I am kind of in between games at the moment, not sure what I want to play next, I bought bloodstained: ritual of the night because I heard there was a linear classic mode added and I started that. It is fun, but it so blatantly rips off the original Castlevania that it feels more like a rom hack than its own game. The level design is near identical as are the enemies and placements, the bosses are changed, but I was expecting a game inspired by castlevania(like curse of the moon) not a game that just copies it. A bit dissapointed but I will probably finish it.

I wanted to finish seven mansions tonight but hit a roadblock. halfway into the game you run into something that infects you if you get hit. there are 2 paths to follow after that, depending if you get infected or not. no indication you have so much time left infected to find the serum, just extra steps and fmv sequences I thought and in the gamefaqs walkthrough. I get over 2/3's into to this and I finally get to a cut scene and find this serum but no matter how fast I do this sequence the game ends on me like I had the virus to long. replaying from a start point, moving as fast as I can, sometimes I can heal myself but not my partner (2 serums to pickup and use), other times I may hit a wall running to fast and I can't heal before the death sequence. If I have to start over and use a walkthrough to have enough time, It's fucking bullshit like this that make me not want to finish some games. I literally need more 20 seconds lol.
