    I'm a firm believer that the more a strategy guide is needed the worse the game is.

    If we're talking just cover aesthetics then Cosmic Fantasy 2 is probably the worst. That airbrush nonsense is just awful. What a relic from the 80s. Gungriffon Blaze was also kinda average.

    The alternate Rayearth logo is neat to see. The game's manual even has a screenshot with it instead of the revised one which I can only assume was intentional to give people a glimpse of it. But if...

    Sega never knew how to manage a console. It was primarily an arcade game operation. A lot of people forget that the Genesis is a full two years older than the Super Nintendo and its early marketing...

    This reminds me of another annoying feature in old RPGs, at least the ones without good combat balance. Some games could get really picky with how you played. Either you used the specific strategy...

    It doesn't make them unplayable but it's a mechanic that has zero respect for the player's time. It also doesn't help that a lot of old RPGs would combine them with labyrinthine dungeons, sometimes...

    Eh... It's a tough one. Games like Vay and Albert Odyssey really only rises to the level of "tolerable" when the localization is taken into account, but at least Albert Odyssey looks nice. For...

    You're probably right that the chaos during localization may have had something to do with the decision. And unrelated, I also forgot how the game just sort of stops. The ending is an abrupt return...

    The game made me watch the anime and I much prefer the game's interpretation. It's just more charming throughout.

    I honestly don't see what's wrong with Sony's localization of Grandia. It's at least within the competence of what was expected of the late 90s. Nothing in it strikes me as a particularly...

    No it hasn't. It gets random after market unlicensed games but so does the NES on occasion. That's not the same as being "alive."

    Yeah definitely a good idea to stick with systems that are actually alive -- even if barely so.

    Such a shame about Langrisser. Perfect series to localize but such terrible circumstances conspiring...

    So that must be like 1994-1995ish? You'd think someone at Sega would say, "hey, maybe we shouldn't hire the guy the competition fired after a year" but, ya know, it was Sega, after all. :rolleyes:

    I'd bet my bottom dollar that the PC port is just the PlayStation version with higher resolution. It's extremely unlikely that they used the Saturn version as a base.
