Rare Replay First Impressions
 
IMO, they nailed it.

Walecs 4th August 2015 03:16 PM

You beat me! I had the same idea for a thread, but then again I spent the last 8 hours playing Rare Replay.

Anyway:
0. Rare Replay is the best game ever. /undeniablefact
1. Jetpac: It's ridiculously easy thanks to the rewind function.
2. Lunar Jetman: I don't have the slightest idea what to do.
3. KI Gold: I don't have the slightest idea how to play, I keep dying. Shouldn't they add a tutorial or something?
4. Menu themes: They're all adorable.
5. Previously unseen: A bit disappointed by the lack of several titles, but amazing nonetheless. Moreover, it's really cool to see Sundown and Tailwind, since there is nothing about them around the internet.
6. Grabbed by the Ghoulies: It looks gorgeous on 1080p.
7. Nintendo 64 games FPS: People have been complaining about this, but I personally can not.
8. Ticket: It's an awesome idea, I love that you unlock concept arts/music by collecting ticket stamps.

So N64 FPS is still in the 20's?

I severely regret going to bed before 9 last night; it was right before your stream. I would have watched it but I thought Replay was releasing hours later....

i recommend skullgirls if you want a fighting game that will explain things so that you can actually start playing fighting games

Conker and Blast Corps both ran great. Honestly, the biggest performance issues were with Nuts and Bolts, though they say a patch is coming soon. That was almost unplayable at times. Can't say anything bad about N64 games that I tried.

I skipped around a ton last night, ended up spending a bunch of time playing Jetpac and RC Pro Am, because those games are damn good. I'm not sure that Solar Jetman is even a video game, if somebody could explain to me how to play it, that would be cool. I'm honestly going to try and beat as many of these as fast as I can, because some of those special features... apparently there's a track from Dream in there. Also Kameo 2 concept art. It's a gold mine for us.

All ive played so far are the ultimate games and they are terrible. Cant wait to get to the rareware stuff. Havent a clue what im supposed to be doing in any of these games. Apart from jetpac the rest are all the exact same with tedious enemies all over the place and annoying ticking noises. An explanation of what im supposed to do would be nice.

welcome to the early 80s in video gaming

this is why people do not commonly look back on the ZX Spectrum as the golden age

Atic Atac actually seems kind of interesting, and definitely was impressive for it's time. Otherwise, I generally agree, Jetpac is the only one worth playing until you get to Slalom. Also, gimme your gamertag so I can see you in my leaderboards.

Atic atac has been the one i spent most time on so far. Im currently trying to find (buffalo bill) i think? Gonna give this one up too its boring.
Gamertag is Scrubber89

I'm installing everything before I play first, so I've got a little while to wait :p. First time I've been excited for a game since Smash Bros.

BellyButtonLint 4th August 2015 07:01 PM

Just got RR an hour ago and it's installing. Can't wait to try Gunfright and Boggy's Sled Racing: The Game Slalom.

Get comfortable. Infact go do something like get some food or go on vacation. Mine took 1 hour 50 mins to install fully.


Right I'm up to slalom now. Let the games begin.

fighting games didnt start getting in-game tutorials until around 5 years ago but im sure theres an online ki community you can learn the basics from

not really worth it though imo

also, if tooie has n64 slowdown despite the 360 port being fine, that'd be kind of amazing

Andre 4th August 2015 07:41 PM

Worth noting that I preloaded every game, yet still had to perform updates on every 360 game.
