I actually discovered Super Turrican when a friend picked it up cheap; he brought it over one day when we were hanging out, and I was instantly hooked. I've actually been thinking about it, since this reminds me of the music in Stages 7-9: [Link] This also reminds me that I want to learn Famitracker (I think that's what it's called) and make a chiptune remix of the Stage 11 music using the Sunsoft soundfont.

I wasn't ever able to finish Super Turrican 2, because I couldn't find my way through that damn underwater stage, but I loved how the weapons were all palette swaps of their equivalents from its predecessor. There wasn't anything else about it that I disliked. That's definitely the game, though; I'm not sure where I heard that it was some sort of weird Brazilian prototype...

The version of Turrican that I played was on the Genesis, and that's mostly because I was already playing through the entire library, but a lot of old games on computers are really janky, so I tend to be leery of Action titles from that era. I do remember that it was a big deal, but I didn't even look into it until much later.

I actually use WinAMP for most of my VGM sound editing. I either rip my own or get lazy and get the raw data from somewhere like that (and usually wind up paying for it, because the sample turns out to be shit), pop it into WinAMP (couldn't even tell you how many VGM plugins I have for that), use the Disk Writer to export it into .wav format, then work it over in Audacity to get it sounding good before finally putting it into .mp3 format and adding all of the metadata.

Legendary Weapon: 5 or fewer unfinished games
Yeah, save for stuff like HD/texture/aspect ratio tweaks (like the Starcraft remaster), I don't really like the idea of redone visuals unless there are flaws or something in the original. I can only see valuable & non-financial reasons for re-releases when the creators/team themselves want to do so (e.g. Odinsphere) or there're perceived flaws in the old game that new technology could erase or reinterpret (Zelda remakes utilizing touchscreens instead menus). Maybe when the initial game sold poorly or needed reprints. The preservation or "introduce to new generations" arguments don't really hold up when emulation and back/forwards compatibility should be what are rewarded rather than having to create a team of people to individually port all of these games. And most people probably do appreciate older game aesthetics when they become familiar with the contexts they were made/released in.

FF7, to me at least, is fine as is though. The story, music, Materia/battle mechanics, background all seem good enough. It's like the Ocarina Of Time of the FF series: not necessarily the best but an incredibly solid game. If the remake is some new weird reinterpretation, I'd be cool with that, but I'd be sad if it tries to retroactively nullify the first game as the way to play the game like a lot of other remakes (and sequels) try to do. I'm pretty sure it's trying to be the latter (and will likely fail hard at it, but who knows).

Hell yeah, Super Turrican! After I finished that, I tried playing every damn Turrican just to recreate that feeling... unsuccessfully. Turrican, the first didn't have the big, flashy weapons that I love; Turrican 2 (well, technically, I played Universal Soldier on the Genesis, which has 3 extra stages, and the robot boss in the first stage replaced by big, stupid Dolph Lundgren, but it's still Turrican 2) was decent-to-good; and something about Mega Turrican just rubbed me the wrong way. Super Turrican 2 wasn't bad, but the level design was kinda... fuckey. Also, I don't think it was ever technically finished or released.

Sweetie, I'm 5'2"; pole vaulting to get into a big truck is a pole vault of necessity. Besides, rule of cool doesn't apply when you get a big fucking tree trunk slammed into your midsection. I am assuredly more coordinated now than I was then.

I couldn't remember the name, either, but I'd figured that I would've added it to one of my YouTube playlists, and there it was. I suppose rereading my comment to you should've sparked my memory, but my mind was in pretty bad shape by the time I got to that comment; seems that even I need a week's rest now and again.

Yeah, by the time I got home on Monday, it was resolved; it was a pain in the ass, but when you live out in East Bumblefuck, you have things like this happen. Usually, it's that a raccoon (or one time, a whole deer) got fried in some kinda power transformer, but this time, I think it was downed tree limbs. I remember having to pole vault over a downed tree to get home one time. I'm not moving, because I hate city life, and I hate suburban life even more.

Anyway, I had to look it up, myself, but it's called Sea of Eden. [Link] I knew EXACTLY which one you were talking about, though, because it made quite an impression on me, as well. Enjoy!

I have a soft spot for things like this, and while I was fully expecting it to be an Earthbound reference, it managed to surprise me in such a way that knocked me right out of my chair. ? was a special place, too; a dark rainbow wonderland that always felt too short, but I remember being completely overwhelmed when I found it the first time.

If you like OutRun and weird shit, it's something you'll enjoy, for sure. OutRun's an old favorite of mine, particularly the SEGA Master System version, which my dad and I used to play all the time. He was bigger into Hang-On, but it didn't have scenery that was as mesmerizing. I keep forgetting the name of Famicom Grand Prix 2, mostly because it's just such a generic name.

Oh, I have, quite a few times. I did mention that it doesn't bother me, but if it's some kind of security risk, I did want the site administration to know.
