Usually threads get locked when there is a heated debate or if it's get crude. At first glance I see that you have many words in bold and in caps with curse words, perhaps some mod thought you were having a flame war? Either way, I think that topic went on for far too long anyway and turned into an angry rant about Google rather than a healthy, leisurely discussion about Dragon Ball.

Neat hack, I'll keep my eye on this one!

I am open to any questions, comments, suggestions, marriage proposals, or livestock trades.
I will not tolerate assassination attempts, marriage proposals, or sassy backtalk while you wave your hand in the air.

So you are open to any marriage proposals but will not tolerate any marriage proposals? :o

Yeah sounds like you might not be looking for fantasy monster type things but I thought I'd offer. Even if there's anything that looks like it could be tweaked into what you're looking for.
If I'm not mistaken, Dr. Floppy probably wants images like this. It's slightly NSFW but is censored with happy Smiley faces. I pretty much used Donor Party as inspiration for this one. The image is not pretty but catches the essence of Baddest Hacks

This hack sounds cool and reminds me a lot of Earthbound. It's be cool to battle each Governor from each state. After that, you go on to battle the president! The motive of this should be that the government plans to destroy your home for a national highway.  :D

Also if you need some sprites of NPCs or enemies, I can always help! I can make the graphics trippy if you want! :thumbsup:

Very nice, justin3009. Now I can actually hear what Sailor Moon is saying! I can only assume there's plenty of room in memory as I don't think those other instruments take up a lot of space.

Nice. I always thought these sort of hacks were interesting, though I was always unsure if they were parodies or not...

I'll do you one better: Richard Longwood.
Folks, we have a winner!

This hack is going to be great! Those graphics are the quality of Batman: Return of the Joker but even better and complex.

EDIT: Also I would definitely check out Terminiator 2's for the NES music as well as Aliens 3 for the NES for some music that I think would suit this hack perfectly. You can reuse the music or borrow the style!

Since people other than Japan figured out that they like money and can make games, the gaming industry has utterly blown up. There are many many bazillions of games to choose from and a rich history of great games and utter trash (when you want to see how it isn't done).

What is your thought process when it comes to choosing what games to play? I have great difficulty deciding what to play these days so I'm hoping to learn a new technique or two in this regard.

And we're off!
I no longer buy new games as of now, I don't have the time to read reviews that aren't always accurate. I'm also tired of continuously buying new consoles and stick to my old ones. I tend to now just buy NES games now. I basically know the whole NES library well enough to know which games I should buy when I see it at a retro gaming store or flea market. The games can be dirt cheap, lowest at $5, which is great compared to the $50 games today.

Everything you say is true, but I still want/wanted to play through Hoshi wo Miru Hito. Last year I made it an hour or two into the game, but unfortunately the WIP translation (by KingMike IIRC) really isn't far enough along to get beyond that -- after a promising start, the text strings go off the rails.
Yes, it was by KingMike, I guess he stopped because the game is pretty much terrible. It's so bad, I'd actually like to play it to the end. Though I will say that the font he used is too good looking for what the game deserves. It needs the English Nanjing font used in many Chinese pirate games (ex Final Fantasy VII NES).

This looks like a nice hack, is the music MSU-1 and is it covers?

I'm currently collaborating with a person to compose music. So I will say it is kind of difficult especially when both partners have different styles of music. Of course the person was obviously enjoyable from the start, it's not as easy compared to working alone. Though there are many benefits like learning from one another so I would recommend it if you are lenient.

Some people work better together like Tim and Geoff Follin who made great music together during the 80s and 90s for video games. I recall Tim working with another person on Batman Forever, and it is very obvious the other person took over the music; the OST sounds nothing like Tim's style.

For the record, ET is a little buggy and complicated but is a good game once you actually read the manual, at least in my opinion. SOURCE: I own the game.

I must say that Hoshi wo Miru Hito makes Final Fantasy Mystic Quest look like a masterpiece. For these reasons:

* God awful music
* The graphics look like vomit, I'm not kidding
* It takes one second to move two tiles
* The first town is invisible
* The more expensive weapons aren't necessarily the strongest, some weapons are weaker than your bare hands
* There is a password system that doesn't even save your level or position. If you die, you start over at the beginning at level 0
* Overpowered enemies combined with no option to run
* Too frequent encounter rates
* Developed by the company Hot-B

and many more!

It was on the SNES, Chpexo.
Quite aware; I just haven't explored the terrible games of the SNES yet. From what I recall there are more terrible RPGs on the NES mainly because designing games at that complexity was a new thing, result in many terrible games.

Also... @Chpexo:

Isn't "below mediocre" the same thing as "bad"?

'mediocre' is the median between good and bad.  So if it's below the median that makes it bad, right?  ;P
Aw crap, I just got called out!

Well I tend to be less harsh towards games. It's less than mediocre but it's definitely not "horrible" as you said. There are much, much worse RPGs from the NES era, Hoshi wo Miru Hito comes to mind. Though how easy the game is contributes to why I think the game is not terrible. To be honest, I think Mystic Quest is much better than hardcore RPGs like Dragon Warrior NES where you have to grind for countless hours just to buy a weapon. Though I will recognize that Mystic Quest's engine is broken to favor the player and is not even closely superior to the Dragon Quest NES's, Mystic Quest at least has a sense of progression that Dragon Warrior NES lacks. In addition, Mystic Quest has little gimmicks where the player can interact with the environment.

That said, I would totally play Mystic Quest on the SNES over Dragon Warrior NES any day.

I feel I should mention that some of the battle themes in Final Fantasy Mystic Quest are quite possibly the most badass SNES themes ever composed. Prepare for whiplash.



EDIT: I don't know how many times I've heard these tunes and I still can't get over them.
The soundtrack is not even composed by Nobuo Uematsu, it's actually by Ryuji Sasai! Take that Uematsu!

That game's soundtrack is not only totally amazing, but is also the only redeeming part of that otherwise terrible, terrible game.
I can't agree that this is a bad game, just below mediocre.

This is the most wild hack I've seen in a while! You're up the there with Naked Headless Mario Fights the Dick Nazis and Donnor Party. Congratulations on such an accomplishment!

The plot so far is that Haggar's replacement character (still not 100% on his name yet) is fired for being a huge perv who watches porn and jerks off at work. With nothing else to lose, him and his nihilistic drug dealer decide to go down in flames on one last drug fueled murder spree.
May I suggest the name Haggard? I think the urban dictionary definitions match the character quite well.

That should be "only one who has noticed this". I thought about just letting it go, but then I realized you did make the mistake twice. :P
I don't know what you're talking about, I'm pretty sure I sad "who" ;D And don't you dare look at the topic in previous posts!
