    Game Dungeon Wish List

    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.

    The Urbz: Sims In The City

    I wasn't sure why they switched over to HEALTH with their more "electronic" sound for MP3 either, but they absolutely killed it, so I'm not complaining.

    The Urbz: Sims In The City

    I'm with you on that front, I think if you're going to listen to the theme you should always opt for the higher quality version, but I think there's just a certain charm to that really awful quality of GBA noise that speaks to my nostalgic side. I think they did well with what they had, and that's an important thing to keep in mind. I don't much like comparing apples to oranges, so to speak.

    The Urbz: Sims In The City

    I did actually play the Max Payne GBA game! I'm something of an aficionado for good Gameboy games, and the Max Payne game really surprised me with just how excellently they managed to capture the core gameplay of the PC port with such a limited control set. That ambient music is also great. EDIT: I say "great" considering the quality, but I'm a bit too used to that sort of sound by now for it to even bother me, otherwise I can totally understand where you're coming from.

    A pitch for my mind series.

    They say imitation is flattery, but I actually think you've got a decent talent here! Keep it up friend, you've earned a sub from me.

    Best Pixel Art

    Take a look at Hyper Light Drifter - it's a very "stylised" game, but has some of the best pixel art I've ever seen. Beautiful game. I'd say maybe check out Stardew Valley too, but in my opinion, that game suffers from what I like to call "Mana Syndrome"; in Secret of Mana, a lot of the sprites were differing resolutions from one another. It still has some great art, but you really want to make sure you scale everything proportionately for it to look organic. That's just my two cents, though!

    The Urbz: Sims In The City

    Hey everyone, first time poster here, I wanted to share one of my all time favourite soundtracks from one of my all time favourite games. If you've ever played a Sims game, I doubt you'd ever expect them to end up on the Gameboy of all consoles, but lo and behold, the Urbz: Sims in the City is an open world game released on the GBA and is not only one of the best looking GBA games ever released, but also in my personal opinion, the best Sims game ever made. Unfortunately, the soundtrack is really horrible quality, but I'd love to see if anybody here experienced in MIDI can work their magic and un-compress the audio. If you're interested at the prospect of a Sims game on the GBA, I promise you it's unlike anything you've ever played, and I totally recommend it. I plan to do a video on my own Game Dungeon-esque show soon, but I'm not sure self promotion is allowed here, so I'll leave it at that until I can learn more
