Game Dungeon Wish List

Recommended Posts

White Day: A Labyrinth named School (2001)

 

I have a long history with this game, I can send you a clean Korean iso, and help you with installing the English translation, and guide through the many  (many) issues you will have with this game on a modern OS. Would love to hear your opinion on this one.

PARASITE EVE for a future Christmas episode. In Captain Zzap, Ross said he was running out of Christmas games he feels like talking about, and every year since then I've suggested Parasite Eve in the comments, but they usually get buried so I don't think he's noticed.

 

Ross, I know you really only do PC games on the Game Dungeon, but you might want to make an exception for this one. It's far and away the best Christmas game ever, and it honestly seems like the kind of thing you'd like a lot. It's got great atmosphere, hilariously incorrect soft science, mutating animals inspired by The Thing, unique RPG hybrid gameplay, people exploding into orange goop like in End of Evangelion, shotguns, kickass music; basically everything you could possibly want for Christmas.

 

Seriously, listen to this shit. This is the map screen music for fuck's sake.

 

Hell, if you're interested in covering it sometime, I'd straight-up donate a physical copy of the game just so you can emulate it legally. It's totally worth it.

 

LOOK AT THE FIRST ENEMY. LOOK HOW RAD THIS SHIT IS. THIS IS THE GOOMBA OF THIS GAME. AWESOME

DROD, an incredibly quirky, incredibly good, and some incredibly odd design decisions made in the first games. Basically, it's a turn based/tile based puzzle game where you have to kill all the monsters in the room and exit it. It had almost no marketing behind it, and the series was somehow held up to 6 different games with support from incredibly dedicated fans. It seems like a perfect fit for the Game Dungeon (and not just because most of it takes place in one)

Hey Ross, love your work been watching it for years and even got my girlfriend into your videos. I made an account just to send this suggestion

 

siege of avalon, it's an isometric medieval fantasy abandoned ware title from 2000 that takes inspiration from baldurs gate and diablo

 

though the gameplay was kinda boring (LOTS of go back and forth, back and forth) the story, setting and interface really stuck with me for years and I would love to see you do a video on it.

 

here's the link that I used to download the game and I can confirm it works and hasn't blown up my computer

https://www.myabandonware.com/game/siege-of-avalon-bfl

 

be warned though, I think this is one of those games that isn't compatible with newer OS's. the frame rate can be painfully slow and I don't have any sound or music (shame because I rather liked the soundtrack)

 

edit: played it again and for some reason the music and sound is working now . but I still can't see the opening cinematic (not missing much with that but still)

Hi Ross! I'd like to recommend Mobil 1 Rally Championship. If you sucessfully activated your powers of deduction, you'll find this is a racing game, featuring immense rally stages. It was the last game developed by Magnetic Fields, and released in 1999. The main attraction of the game are the super-long stages, created using real-life data from maps from the Ordnance Survey, a mapping agency for Britain and Ireland. They feel like a journey.

 

Looking back on it, the physics are nothing special, with sound design being quite poor in fact, however it's a game I thought you'd like due to the sheer immensity of the setting. IIRC there's a stage lasting for over 30 minutes (racing pace), with most of them averaging 10 minutes I'd say. IMO it was the best rally game until Richard Burns Rally released in 2004.

 

EDIT: I took screenshots of all the stage description screens in the game: https://imgur.com/a/h1bRD8a

Adding up, the game has 652km across all its stages, and 18km averaged on its 36 stages! For 1999, this was a proper achievement. It still is! And they received great reviews too, mostly nines across the board.

I would like to recommend Phocas Island 2 a Doom mod. I know this isn't a game and i am not sure about what is allowed to be recommended, but i really wanted to share this. In my opinion this is the best doom mod/map and one of best games i have seen. It uses strifes level connection and has huge maps.

 

The plot is, you are stranded on island and you need to get off it, very simple. In game you can find notes that were left by someone. It's open world exploring with doom combat and puzzle elements. I remember someone describing it as point and click in doom.  I really love the atmosphere in it. It uses custom textures and monsters, most of em ripped from different games.

 

I really hope that someone in future would make something similar. Sadly Phocas island 1 is different beast, more a classic doom level. If someone gonna decide to run it then i should warn that despite it recommending to use GZDooM, newest one wont gonna work. One level transition will gonna fuck up and insta-kill you, even in God mode. I am not sure which GZDooM version gonna work, but i played it with Zandronum 2.1.2 and i guess old ZDooM gonna work too.

Xenus 2: White gold

It's perfect game for summer in tropics, all sub quests you gotta look for but they are amazing, main story is so stupid it's actaully funny.

First Xenus is just boring and bad so I wouldn't bother with it

I'd love to see Ross try his hand at Mechwarrior 4.

Pretty sure he'd enjoy it. Specially since it ticks off most of his biases TOWARDS liking it.

Personally I'd like to see him review underrail or arcanum, even if he hates them.

You really need to try Xeno Clash I and II. It's a first person fighting game. The game play is unique and good enough for the length of the game. If it were a 8 hour Half-Life 2 thing it might get old. Either way, the universe setting is bizarre and worth experiencing. Just look at screen shots of this game and tell me you don't think "wtf is that?" It's weird and wonderful and not that well known afaik.

I'd like to see some of those 2nd/3rd tier FPS games from the early 2000's get some reviews on the Dungeon. Ones that come to mind are mainly Pariah and Mace Griffin.

I'm new here, but I want to post my suggestions.
GOTHIC I, II and expansion "Night of the Raven".
This are some of the most climatic and impressive games I have played in my childhood years.

 

First Gothic I

The story is set in the Khorinis Island, where penal colony has been set to force criminals to dig precious magic ore. It's a very good material for creating weapons and the kingdom need them because orks have invaded the mainland country Myrthana. So to meet high demand for magic ore a new laws have been passed. Every criminal no matter the crime will be sent to the colony. And the colony will be surrounded by a magical barrier. But some magic shenanigans later the barrier consume more than it was intended to and anyone that will try to leave will just die. The prisoners use that disarray to take over and now the king is forced to give them what they want in exchange for magic ore. And that is all you now when they drop you, ass first into the lake behind barrier.

Here are some points that in my opinion make the game good.

The world feel alive. The people do their daily stuff, react to weather, and fight off monsters.

NPC are interesting and many of them are very memorable.

The story is somehow standard but still feels right in the world of the game.

Enemies stay dead. Later it can make the world feel empty when you kill every single life form in some parts of the world, but well, there was suppose to be respawn system that would respawn animals every new act, but to my knowledge it was scrapped in the final version so once you clear a location it will stay clear.

They were more features like that. For example, there is a stage in old camp that was suppose to be used by in game version of the band 'In Extremo' with music and all after finishing second act. The Alchemy was scrapped. Smithing swords was suppose to be better but you can make just a basic unfinished sword.

Almost everything is interactive. You can kill some animal, knife some meat out of it, go to the camp, buy a frying pan, go to the bonfire and fry it. The more time you spend on that, the more meat you fry. So if you have like 15 pieces of meat it will take longer than a few seconds.
You browsing your equipment don't stop time like in skyrim. When you want to eat something to recover HP your character will it, that in game with animation and sound.

According to some people the game has clunky controls, but to me they were good.

There are mods to the game that restore content and fix some things. There is polish mod "enhancededition" that adds more quests, factions, items, and many other things. I don't know anything about English mods or English versions of polish, german and russian mods (the game really did good in this country).

Now Gothic II

Take gothic I but add time to finish the features that were planned for G1, add more polish to the game and bigger world that is just as rich as the one from G1, add interesting mechanics to combat the players cleaning the map, new factions and fucking dragons. You have G2.

I could write more, but seriously this game will speak for itself if one is willing to give it a chance.

And on top of that the expansion "The Night of the Raven" is the expansion. It adds so much new content along with a new big map and enemies and other stuff that you will cry at the thought that content poor DLC's are what we have today.

So I got Flare, the RPG.

 

Man, this brings me back. The graphics remind me of Icewind Dale, the Avernum series, and even Cabela's 2003 hunting game. I love it. I like how it's a bit of the reverse of Avernum, Arx Fatalis, and Underrail : instead of clinging to the underworld, you want to get back into it. Definitely a game I can see myself loving for a long time.

I'd really love Ross to review Two Worlds 2 - it was criminally underrated and overlooked thanks to how fatally mediocre the first game was, but is surprisingly magnitudes better than the original. I played the first game all the way through back before I had standards and bought games straight out of the bargain box at my local games store and I honestly loved it for all its flaws purely because of how charming I found everything, despite it being a horrible and broken mess, which only meant I was even more surprised than everybody else to find the second game was actually very playable and fun. I think Ross would appreciate how weird and wonderful it is, especially given his tendency to play through shitty RPGs.

We need a Star Control Game Dungeon. I know it's not super obscure but it obscure enough and original enough to deserve a review.

Oh I played Star Control 2, and it was god awful, music was okay though.

I don't think it has enough material for a full blown video, and if it somehow did, I think it would be very stretched.
