Hey, new to the boards

@  RichardT1977 : (20 September 2020 - 02:29 PM)

I had an idea for a Spiral Zone/Go-Busters crossover fanfic...

@  wonko the sane? : (19 September 2020 - 06:35 PM)

I loved what was there, and think it's pretty ripe for "renegades" style reboot.

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 03:13 PM)

It's a shame as I loved Spiral Zone, and the design from the Japanese Toyline of the same name are fantastic, I adore the monowheel motorbike.

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 03:12 PM)

Hasbro doesn't seem to have any interest in doing anything with the TV show, haven't greenlit any attempt to rerelease it, and there have been approaches, so I think it may be aother one of Tonka's legal carcrashes where everyone involved owns a piece and it's not really worth anyone sticking their neck out to claim ownership.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 01:47 PM)

I feel that homages and references would be a fun way to expand the GI Joe brand, and give a little love to lines that are unlikely to be acknowledged beyond such capacity.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 01:47 PM)

I was under the impression that Bandai was more the character design aspects, not story or characters.

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 12:55 PM)

Also isn't it in rights limbo, given how it's loosely based on concepts from a BanDai series much like GoBots?

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 12:52 PM)

We don't need a Spiral Zone reboot, in a decade or so we'll be living it.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 September 2020 - 12:49 PM)

Yeah, but it would fundamentally change the base premise of both gijoe and spiral zone. It's either not the world spanning threat it was, or the zone riders are backed up by a competent force. Either way, you compromise the context of both.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 12:19 PM)

Akin to what was done with Matt Tracker in 2008.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 12:18 PM)

Again, not a PURE transplant, but an integration of ideas and concepts into the world of GI Joe.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 12:18 PM)

@Wonko The Cobra Overlord, with help from Dr. Mindbender and Cesspool, develops machines capable of generating a mind-controlling fog. GI Joe stalwarts Flint, Airtight, Lifeline, and Psyche-Out are joined by Colonal Courage to infiltrate these zones and disable the machines. Figures would sport hostile environment suits (Eco warriors cross with Spiral Zone) and make new versions of the mono-wheel vehicles.

@  Maximus Ambus : (19 September 2020 - 09:39 AM)

Hasbroverse.2 with bought properties: Bravestarr, Ulysses 31, Galaxy Rangers, Shadow Raiders, Manta Force, Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors, Mighty Orbots, Jem and Bigfoot and the Muscle Machines. Seamless.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 September 2020 - 08:32 AM)

While acknoledging spiral zone would be pretty boss, I doubt they could actively integrate it into anything else: given the scale of the villains deeds.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 08:03 AM)

COPS, Spiral Zone, Shadow Strikers, Action Man, Centurions, MegaForce. They wouldn’t replicate the old lines, but simply acknowledging their existence would be nifty.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 08:01 AM)

I would love to see GI Joe become something of a “celebration of action figures”. Hasbro has SO MANY old action figure properties, and many could slot into the GI Joe umbrella with relative ease.

@  Otaku : (19 September 2020 - 12:04 AM)

G.I. Joe, CyberCOPS, and M.A.S.K. all seem like something that would work from Animated or Prime, though CyberCOPS might have been a bit trickier from Prime.

@  Sabrblade : (18 September 2020 - 11:02 PM)

Rik Alvarez originally wanted the last episode of Prime to spinoff into a new MASK reboot.

@  Otaku : (18 September 2020 - 08:19 PM)

The failed Hasbroverse reminds me how so many things could have been spun off from Transformers: Animated and (after that) Transformers: Prime.

@  ▲ndrusi : (18 September 2020 - 12:43 PM)

Requiem of the Wreckers was post-Revolution, but it was also, you know, a single issue.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (18 September 2020 - 11:06 AM)

But Roche didn't have a series to keep out from the crossovers since Sins of the Wreckers was before Revolution.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (18 September 2020 - 11:01 AM)

Oh wait, that post said Roche, not Barber.

@  Rycochet : (18 September 2020 - 10:46 AM)

And then seemed surprised nobody particlarly wanted it.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (18 September 2020 - 10:25 AM)

Wasn't Barber among the editorial guys that pushed for Hasbroverse?

@  Maximus Ambus : (18 September 2020 - 10:19 AM)

He did it possibly due to 616 Spider-Mans marriage reset between Civil War and Secret Invasion.

@  ▲ndrusi : (18 September 2020 - 09:20 AM)

Bendis kept a tight leash on Ultimate Spider-Man because it was mostly set far away from Earth?

@  -LittleAutob... : (18 September 2020 - 08:49 AM)

I'm learning so much-

@  Maruten : (18 September 2020 - 04:21 AM)

At its worst it was better than MASK, sure.

@  Maximus Ambus : (18 September 2020 - 02:15 AM)

At it's worst it still stomped all over the failed Hasbroverse. Roberts and Roche kept their respective series well out of that one for the same reasons Bendis kept a tight leash on Ultimate Spider-Man when Loeb and Miller wanted greater control for Ultimatum.

@  Maruten : (17 September 2020 - 06:37 PM)

That's so accurate it's physically painful.

NES.

Megaman. all of them.(though i'd specifically recommend 2 and 3).
Dragon Warrior 3 and 4. 1 and 2 are ok, but more grind heavy.
Destiny of an Emperor. similar to dragon warrior, but more interesting.
Final Fantasy
Faxanadu
Blaster Master
Metroid
Legend of Zelda, of course
Super Mario Bros 3
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 1, 2, and 3.
Marble Madness
Little Nemo: The Dream Master

Great call on Little Nemo! I loved that game and I still have it!

I'd also recommend Town & Country Surf Designs: Wood & Water Rage, I'm not so much a fan of the surfing side of the game, but the skating part was just SO darn fun when I was a kid!!! You keep playing similar boards, but they get longer and more difficult every time.

Have fun!

Crystalis. It's a better Zelda than Zelda. Seriously. It has all the same gameplay aspects as Zelda but without any of the infuriating issues. You don't have to die in order to save, the mechanics of firing energy from your sword are MUCH better, there's an RPG-esque leveling system and you can interact with people in towns. It might seem a little ho-hum by today's standards, but the game was lightyears ahead of its time in the 80s. A shame SNK has forgotten it exists.

Street Fighter 2010. People hate it because it's called "Street Fighter", is made by Capcom and has *nothing* to do with the Street Fighter franchise outside of the main character being named Ken and shooting energy blasts out of his hands. But don't be fooled: this game rocks. It's basically just a series of boss battles, one after another with only a handful of platforming levels in between. So pretty much all the good stuff without the boring bits. It's one of the most graphically intense games on the system and you can pull off some really impressive moves once you get a handle on the controls.

Isn't Street Fighter 2010 for the Super Nes?

Or am I remembering stuff wrong here...

Anyway. North And South. Delicious comedy strategy is delicious. 2 Players are a must.

Chip And Dale Rescue Rangers. Fun, fun platform game with good graphics. In the same vain you need to play Ducktales.

Its amazing how Capcom made so many awesome liscense games on the NES.

My favorites were always:

Super Mario Bros.
Super Mario Bros. 3
Duck Hunt
Bionic Commando (though I never got far...)
Contra (you kow the cheat!)
1943 (king of top-down shooters)
Blades of Steel (great with a friend, especially when you get in a fight)
Excitebike
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Arcade Game
Dr. Mario
Micro Machines (race through Cheerios mazes!)

It's really hard to beat an NES for simple, fun, pick-up-and-play games.

This thread is SERIOUSLY lacking in a few AWSOME NES games:

Ninja Gaiden 1, 2, and 3. Seriously people. How am -I- the first one to mention them. Yeah they're kinda hard, but they're NINJA GAIDEN.

The Guardian Legend. Awsome zelda/space shooter hybrid.

Video of the first space level and Zelda style gameplay. (Ignore the short Lufia intro)

You can also pick up the first Metal Gear which ain't that bad a game.

People have already said Zelda, Metriod, Castlevania, and of course Megaman. So I won't go there.

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles games have been mentioned, but for THE LOVE OF GOD do NOT get The first game. Just get TMNT 2: The Arcade game and up. Skip the first one.

Another vote for Great call on Little Nemo. Awsome game.

Street Fighter 2010 is indeed on the NES. I own it. (PS: It's suppose to take place in the Street Fighter universe, or alternate one, as the Ken in this game IS the Ken we all know and love. There is someone else in the game from the street fighter franchise that I won't spoil. This game is basically called the black sheep of the SF franchise. Not that it makes it a bad game.)

Others you may want to try out:

Whomp Em - Great little 'megaman' style game. See it Here.
Wizard and Warriors
Zanac - Space shooter
Totally Rad - This game is TOTALLY RAD! icon-waspy.gif Seriously though you fight a giant corn on the cob punk rocker. Yes you read that right.

As for RPGs:
Star Tropics
Star Tropics 2: Zoda's Revenge
Ghost Lion - Ghost Lion is an interesting beginer RPG. That only I seem to own. >_<

Course their is always Uninvited and ShadowGate if you like the point and click type adventures.

Random:
M.U.L.E. - Can't really describe this. But it's an interesting game, and has an AWSOME theme song.
Pools of Radiance - If you can find this gem. I say pick it up. Great D&D sytle game. I wish -I- had a copy. >_<

Despite his hate for the game, You should try it out. It's a lot different then the rest of the turtle games. Being made before the Arcade game, it had its own look and feel. Being a one player game is it's main drawback. You control one of the four turtles at a time, switching between the four on the pause menu, between an overworld map and a side scrolling adventure game. It's got some weird normal enemies that have nothing to do with the TMNT, but bosses tend to be taken from the old cartoon series, like Bebop, Rocksteady, Metalhead (robot turtle version),and the Technodrome. The Damn level is frustrating as heck, especially in the swimming bomb diffusion part. The last fight with Shredder can also be frustrating but is easy to finish with Don if you know how to. I actually prefer it to the straight arcade sidescrolling beat em' ups, due to the variety of gameplay.

Actually I don't hate the game. I even own it, though I only do because it was a buck and my collection looked weird without the first game there, but even so. I've played the game and seen the reviews for this game. It's pretty universally agreed that it sucks. Even the Angry Video Game Nerd reviewed it.

Of course you SHOULD try it out yourself, and if you find it for cheap enough, go ahead. But I wouldn't pay a lot of money for the game.

If you like strange little video game curios, sure. But it's hardly necessary. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/R.O.B.

Get a light gun and Advantage joystick first.
