I'm in the market for a Neutopia, but to play, so I can't justify paying the sealed premium.
Good luck with the sale.

Quote from: Digi.k on 10/22/2014, 08:03 AMThis reminds me I need to buy the wonder boy collection on XBL at some stage.Yes!! Get it. It's not every day that a company releases a long unreleased game (the English version of Wonder Boy in Monster Land) and a newly translated game (the English version of Monster World IV) from that era.
Quote from: Digi.k on 10/22/2014, 08:03 AMJust got Adventure island - pce in the post today from japanI really wish Hudson had put out a SCD version of Monster World IV.
Quote from: SamIAm on 10/22/2014, 07:08 PMI just want to reiterate that those numbers are literally what's on the price tags. I have added nothing to them. I just want some cash in my paypal account because I don't have a credit card here in Japan.I'm not in the market for any of these special releases, but if this shop has any harder to find (or just pricier) regular releases for decent prices (compared to eBay, etc.), I'd be more than willing to fill your Paypal account.
Quote from: ultrageranium on 10/19/2014, 04:37 PMThe interview was not back and forth, all of the questions were eMailed at once and answered in a reply.Quote from: PixyJunket on 10/19/2014, 04:08 PMI contributed to that interview!Ah, nice! I see your name in the credits now that you mention itQuoteAnd I'm not seeing where you're picking up any desperation or being out of touch in there, not even close, almost all of the questions are pretty straight-forward and the questions on any future prospects are answered fairly candid as well.It could very well be my own (mis)interpretation then.
What I found odd when I read it was some of his answers towards the end of the interview, openly asking for suggestions, almost thinking out loud maybe? For instance "where to find a good 3D artist?", "Please tell me which game platform is appropriate for MW", and "If 'Aquario of the Clockwork' were released as part of the 'Sega Vintage Collection', would people be interested in buying it?". It felt strange, and a bit insecure, to read such direct questions from such an experienced game designer. Also, the fact that these questions are not answered by the interviewer, at least in the published version, I think it further isolated his responses somehow.
Quote from: ultrageranium on 10/18/2014, 05:41 PMThis news reminds me this interview that I read some time ago:I contributed to that interview!
At the time it struck me how desperate some answers were. I remember wondering if it was bad translation of something that was too culturally contextualised, or if Ryuichi Nishizawa was genuinely overwhelmed, or out of touch somehow.
Quote from: NightWolve on 10/17/2014, 10:23 PMThanks, I figured it was something about that, but since it plays bought games okay I haven't had a dire need to do much about it. I'll ask around for a tune-up at some point when I can justify doing a few other things to it (RGB mod, perhaps).Quote from: PixyJunket on 10/17/2014, 07:38 PMI would love to try it after the patch too, but my Duo-R won't read CDRs.Needs a tuning job of the 3 CD laser-related potentiometers. Failing that, a new laser. Ask for a quote from one of our PCEFX modders: thesteve, turbokon, Keith Courage, etc.
Quote from: NightWolve on 10/19/2014, 08:37 AMInteresting finds. I used Borland's Turbo C++ and Turbo Assembler back in my university days around ~'96. That's what I first started to really learn programming with.I started with Commodore 64 BASIC, but I did a lot with Turbo Pascal and Turbo C++ in high school.
Quote from: Digi.k on 10/18/2014, 05:34 PMPixy you're a fellow GAFer right ?Yup, but lurking more and more everyday as.. certain aspects.. of the forum become more and more prominent.
Quote from: Ayce on 10/17/2014, 10:56 PMWow Madou Monogatari looks really cool! I wish that one would be translated.Is there an active translation community still? Being that it's a dungeon game, I don't know f it would have a mammoth amount of text. If somebody could at least extract the script, I might be willing to poke a friend of mine who may (or may not) want some practice with her translation skills.
Quote from: guest on 10/12/2014, 12:23 AMWestone does not seem like a very prolific studio. In fact, I'm constantly surprised by how long small studios manage to hang in there in Japan. US companies seem to fold much more quickly even with higher output.Apparently, for some time now, Westone was basically just Nishizawa doing small contract work on educational software and some mobile stuff.
Quote from: Opethian on 10/15/2014, 05:12 PMDragon Knight III rox!A friend of mine used to have an English version on PC back in the 486 days.
Quote from: SuperGrafx on 10/12/2014, 10:09 PMGreat games.$27 for both.
How much did the 2 Dungeon Explorer games set you back?
QuoteSad news for the Wonder Boy / Monster World fans, the Tokyo District Court is investigating Westone Bit Entertainment for debt. Financial reports indicate the WB/MW developers will file for bankruptcy soon.Pour one out. A piece of my soul dies today.
Westone's official site has been closed already, while their Facebook account has been left intact since June 13th. Due to this problem, their upcoming software development and deliveries to PSN 6 Xbox Live have been paused, there is also the copyright problems of their IPs that will enter in hiatus.
Quote from: Bardoly on 05/24/2014, 11:15 PMNice!That's what actually convinced me to get it (also, it was cheap).
Play the 'Cook's Quest' in Minesweeper.
Quote from: MrFlutterPie on 05/23/2014, 07:58 PMI believe that Nintendo, Sega and NEC can live together in harmonyI agree, I love all of the 8-bit and 16-bit stuff.

Quote from: HailingTheThings on 05/23/2014, 01:30 AMWoah, there be some butt, wow.Both of these games are heavy on the cheesecake, oh yes.
Quote from: Bardoly on 05/22/2014, 10:01 PMI believe that it's Good Deal Games.Much thanks, I will pick up a copy soon.
