If have to revisit SoR2 again to do a comparison. But I can say that I agree with a bunch of the additions and changes they made to modernize the game. Is it as good as 2? Iím not sure yet. But from what Iíve played so far, Iím enjoying myself.

Interesting breakdown of SoR4 and a run through of their engine they build it in. Very cool stuff if you're into the development side of things.

I'm still unsure about this game, personally.  When that youtube video juxtaposed SOR2 and SOR4 it kind of illustrates my unease with the new one.  The hit boxes are way off and the characters are practically on top of each other before you can hit them.  The enemies, oddly, are able to hit you from much further away and can often suck you into attacks while you're just swinging your fist into their face but not connecting.  It feels like flash animation games I was playing on newgrounds 20 years ago.

All those graphic flourishes are gee whiz but don't really add much to the game.

I didn't really like their Wonderboy 3 remake much, either.  You can instantly toggle between new and old graphics on that and I don't think much of that sprite artwork needed much updating.  In fact, I'd say the dragon bosses look better on the 8bit version.

Different strokes.

I personally haven't really encounted the hit box issues you're mentioning, other than the knife guy having a hit collision on his back. which is just ridiculous.

As for the flash animation games comment, I don't agree at all. This feels way tighter than those cheapy newground games.  The fact that people are learning new tech for creative comboing shows that it's got more depth than what's on the surface.

WB3 didn't do anything for me either. It was just a re-skinning of the original. Nothing more added. At least SoR4 actually improved on the gameplay by adding or changing things up. In 2020 I think this is acceptable for this genre. I don't expect a 2020 beat-em-up to feel like a 90's one. That's just not reasonable from a game design progression, or accessibility standpoint. There has to be some modernizations and i feel this game has done so in tasteful ways.

The graphics still bother me.  They aren't bad, they are just in the wrong style and not very detailed.  It becomes more apparent when the old characters are unlocked and they have more detail than the newer ones.  Mind you the newer ones are better animated, but I'd much rather have the jerkier old school animations with better graphics.

I don't have much experience with console games, and I never  played the other SOR games.

This game is fun.
I have trouble disengaging from an attack sequence to dodge a new threat. I don't know if that is a bug or a feature.

More importantly, Blaze's panties are red. That is just wrong. She would never wear red underwear with her red dress. Being a classy lady she would wear white cotton panties. I have considered writing a strongly worded letter to the developers.

You owe it to yourself to play Streets of Rage 2 if you're into (as the YouTube put it) "brawlers.". It is an excellent game that stood up to what was in arcades at the time.

I'm having a lot of trouble with the boss at the end of the prison stage on SOR4, so I'm maybe just salty. SOR4 should also have a way to dash. It just feels kinda slow.

Anyway, awesome to see something new and polished in this genre. I think I just prefer Streets of Rage Remake on my Xbox to this one.  Better a new brawler than another pixelated metroidvania.

Maybe this is a good excuse to buy a Genesis.
I have some ---smurfy--- USB game pads. I suppose I could setup an emulator on a PC.

I didn't know the arcade machines actually contain throwback boss fights to play!

Quote
At first, they look like a piece of set dressing that's also a decent in-joke, as Streets of Rage shipped in Japan under the name Bare Knuckle. Each one of the arcade cabinets is a little more significant than that, however, as they're hiding four secret boss fights.

To access them, you need to hit the arcade machine with a stun gun. No other weapon will do. These are often carried by nearby enemies whenever there's an arcade machine around, although if you use up or ditch the stun gun beforehand, you're just out of luck. You'll want to avoid picking them up at all, as a stun gun in a player's hands breaks after one hit.

You guys should do yourselves a favor and watch Opt2not's twitch stream.

It is fun to watch. His love for the games really comes through, and he cheerfully puts up with my harassment.

If nothing else you can watch me heckle a guy whose ass can play video games better than me.

Give him some support and tune in.

Can you believe I was not prompted or paid for this?

Iíve enjoyed them.  Itís also introduced me to Twitch.  Some of our fellow hobbyists are clinging onto their 15 minutes of fame for dear life and it was some of the most depressing stuff Iíve ever seen.  Some cool concerts and DJ sets, though.

Opt2not is exceptionally good at some games, and horrible at others.  I like to play along and shake my head at him every so often.

 :cheers:

Thanks guys  :cheers:
I do admit Iím not great at all games but I can at least be somewhat graciously entertaining at being bad at them.
But this is keeping me sane these days, and Iím excited to do these every week. Plus I get to share some of my original gear with you all and just talk about games to someone. My wife tries to stay interested in my gaming ramble, bless her.
I just need to figure out a smoother way of starting up my streams without reconfiguring things every time. I think once I get a dedicated streaming pc, one thatís not shared with doing work and gaming, I can probably have things more streamlined.

Speaking of being bad at a game, Iím going to replay Life Force around 2pm PST today. Probably play a fighting game of some kind afterwards...Iím in the mood.

I keep missing them..... been busy believe it or not.  I'll set an alarm for today and hopefully I can watch for a little while at least. 

I'm not big on twitch as a medium but when somebody comes along that genuinely loves and respects the games, particularly the older genres, it's always worth a watch.  Plus opt's setup is really slick and production value does matter people.

Life Force is ridiculously hard if you die and lose your power ups.  I got to the stage 2 boss and turned on infinite lives and was lasting about 5 seconds. There's nowhere to hide from the bullets.

Got my new pc up and running and had a three month trial of game pass so I threw streets of rage 4 on there.  Overall I like it, but something feels a bit off.  I think it might be the sound design as punches and kicks don't give that satisfying chunky thud like they did on the genesis.  Gameplay engine is pretty solid though. 

Sorry I missed another one... the simpsons is a ton of fun.  I'll start setting alarms again I guess.

Do you know what you will be streaming yet?

I just got my internet connection fixed. My ---smurfy--- DSL was hitting 8 Megabits download at the most.

I am back up to a less ---smurfy--- 23 megabits, and almost 1 full megabit upload.

I call Comcast every 3 months and beg them to lay cable down my road. Their nearest service is only like a mile away.

Yeah, today I'm going to be playing a bunch of Saturn arcade ports (some of the ones that are expensive as PCB's) on my cabinet.  There's a LOT of great, nearly arcade perfect ports on that system (that were never released in USA). It's ridiculous.  So many shmups, a bunch of fighting games, and beat-em-ups.
To name a few: Battle Garrega, DoDonpachi, Metal Black, X-Multiply, Die Hard Arcade, Raystorm, Salamander (life force) 2...

So many shmups!

So I didn't realize that Twitch doesn't notify you when your Video On Demand videos expire.  I just happen to notice it when I was looking through my preferences.

I ended up downloading all my streams and uploading them to youtube. Hopefully they'll stay online now.  If anyone wants to check out the past streams, you can find them here:  https://www.youtube.com/user/gillaxian/videos

I'm still on my Dreamcast Racing game kick.  I'm going to be streaming some Championship mode in Daytona USA tomorrow @ 6PM PST!  Then we're going fishing, I'm gonna play some DC Fishing games after racing. :D

I'm going to play some PSX exclusive shmups (and a few arcade ports) on stream today.  6pm PST!  Looking at games like Einhander, R-type Delta, G Darius, and Gradius Gaiden and Xevious 3D.  Maybe more if there's time.

Come hang out if you're not doing anything!  :cheers:


PS.  Also, I just wanted to make this clear, I don't do this for the money. I don't get paid doing this, and I am definitely not shilling my channel to make a fortune off this stuff. If it comes, it comes -- no biggy if it doesn't.

I'm just interested in chillin' with some drinks and a bunch of fellow gamers, playing and talking about games, and sharing some of my collection, live.  No editing, no pre-recordings, no gimmicks.

I post these updates here for those who don't use Twitter (where I put my stream updates mainly), or for those interested in seeing real hardware. I try not to emulate if I can help it.

You guys missed another great stream.

There were:

exploding space ships.

robot snakes with lasers on their heads.

flying robot fish with lasers on their heads.

Opt2not swearing at Easter Island heads that kept murdering him.

Panda fornication. Well sort of. Not really.

me and pbj typing not so subtle ---steaming pile of meadow muffin--- that nobody else understood. Mostly sexual innuendo of some kind.

some actual good information about consoles and scalers and other nerd ---steaming pile of meadow muffin---.

a guy who is streaming and not self promoting a hundred ways to try and make a buck.


     You guys are missing out. Opt is straight forward and having fun playing games with his friends watching. There is no salesmanship. He is not playing up some lame persona.

Haha, now that's an endorsement!   :applaud:

Thanks guys, yesterday was a fun stream.  It was really lively too, at one point I had a hard time keeping track of the chat.
But it was great that everyone was kept engaged and interested in the stream.

I like these streams where I get to play games I didn't really play before. Yesterday we covered a bunch of PS1 exclusive shmups. Xevious 3D-G, Gradius Gaiden, R-type Delta, Einhander, Harmful Park and G Darius. Spent a bit too much time on Gradius Gaiden though...

I don't know how my schedule is going to be like once the 2nd child is born, but I really want to try to keep streaming for as long as I can. These streams are fun, and has breathed life back into my collection of boards and consoles.

Glad you guys are enjoying the stream. :cheers:

It was such a sense of freedom to get a VCR and to setup recordings and watch when I wanted. With streaming, it was even more freedom since I didn't have to setup the recording. I could consume shows when I found them. With live twitch style streaming, I can't get my head wrapped around being tied to a screen at a specific time. I'm watching it now.

Love Galaga - watched you flub up the stage 11 challenge stage and I could totally relate. That was the one that would gives me fits to this day. Galaga is my favorite game, mainly for sentimental reasons. The strategy you took to get the double ships, used to be what I did, but I switched up to single single ship after losing my fighter. The upside, I can get much higher score, but the game isn't as fun.

The stage 13 where you died waiting to recover your ship.... major bummer. When it happened again on 14? LOL!

No Galaxian for GILAXIAN? I don't blame you, it hasn't aged well.
