Oh man, Squaresoft screwed up big time for cancelling the official english translation of Seiken Densetsu 3. That game is one of the best 2D JRPGs ever made! I remember reading about it in video game magazines, Secret Of Mana 2 it was supposed to be, and then pulled the plug. God bless fantranslation groups for giving us westerners a chance to play it without having to learn japanese.

You have to change the batteries inside the cart to fix savegame issues, they are slowly and surely getting drained during the 15+ years. tongue.gifYou can buy a kit from ebay for couple of bucks. Also you may need a gamebit screwdriver or tip, couple of bucks that too.

Yea maybe I might look into it and I know it's the batteroes

Yeap, it  really is one of it not the best 2D jrpg in that it has SO much replay value! 6 chars each with 2 final classes and 3 different story lines each with a different final boss... you do the math xD

Donkey Kong Country's music is a good example of FM-synthesis sounding like real life instruments being recorded.

 

I recently discovered the music of Japanese turn-based strategy RPG Energy Breaker, some tracks (not all of them) are mind-blowing.

 

You can either go listen to the game ripped track at my soundcloud (game is not so obscure but a lot of its [even best] tracks are not on YouTube yet): http://soundcloud.com/devouringone3/r3edl7l

 

Or take this enhanced and live instruments recorded remix, partly performed by the original composer, for the release of the OST in 2006: 

I said "enhanced" but if you go listen to the SNES version you'll find it sounds almost the same.

 

It's (principally) by Yukio Nakajima one of the two composers who made soundtrack for Lufia II: Rise of the Sinistrals. Official soundtrack for these games got released only recently in the Game Legend Trio (Lufia 2, Chaos Seed and Energy Breaker, because they all share the same composers). That trio of game is an exceptional one, but since very much all of the three got released a bit before, meanwhile, and a bit after the release of the N64, not too many were interested in buying/playing the game at the time.

 

My favorite SNES soundtracks are from the games (will put in grey those which were already cited):

-- the Megaman Xs

-- Tetris Attack

-- Both Super Mario Worlds

-- the first two Donkey Kong Country

-- Super Bomberman 2 (and a few tracks from the later ones, the FM is one of the best made that was for the SNES)

-- Super Mario RPG

-- Zelda: A Link to the Past

-- Lufia 1 and 2

-- B.O.B. (amazing futuristic, robot city themes, as well as organic caves and volcano themes on this obscure gem)

-- Kirby Super Star

-- Pocky & Rocky 1

-- Sparkster (amazing stuff in this Konami proprietary only SNES-title franchise's, very adventure-like: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NXhg9uP43M8)

-- Super Metroid has some very nice ambiance to it but it doesn't sound like your typical SNES game, lol. As a kid I rented the game and played it before going to bed, of course I got stuck at the gold statue but I had nightmares during the night, the music helped causing this. I've returned the game and never played it again until I reach 14 years old (was 6-7, am 22 now).

-- Stunt Race FX (that I prefer to Super Mario Kart for the most part)

 

But I always recommend playing the game instead of just listening to its music. It's hard to find the time though

Just found this thread. I among those who loved this console for the JRPG's especially.

Has anyone played Earthbound? That was a fantastic game.

I also loved the first Namco "Tales Of" game, Tales of Phantasia, which came out for SNES, if I am correct, in 1995 in Japanese only. DeJap made a fantastic translation.

 

Terranigma was also very very good, and probably underrated... back then, I preferred it to Zelda: A link to the past, they had somehow similar mechanics.

 

I agree with people mentioning Crono Trigger, possibly my best experience on the Snes.

It was fun playing Heroes of Mana, the prelude to Seiken Densetsu 3.  Not a SNES game but an okay NDS real-time strategy game.  Buggy AI really detracts from the playing experience.  You get to find out who Angela's parents are, you see Kevin's father kicking some @ss.  Valda obviously really went sour after HoM, I don't remember why.  Loki rules.  Sad that some of these heroes in HoM go on to become villains in SD3.

 

Lastly, best SD3 girl:

You sir are my new best Friend...

I LOVE HER SO MUCH!

But yea... we could poteinally start a whole thread just to discuss tatics and team set ups for SD3

 

And on that note

 

One of my favorite SD3 Teams is

 

Rise [Light-Dark]-For Buffs

Carlie [Light Light]- Swords and those nifty sheilds

Hawkeye [Dark Dark] Debuff Magic and Silencers ect...

 

That's just me, there are other options too, my first run of the game was all 3 girls and I didn't even fight the second form of the Final Boss [Killed it b4 it changed...] xD I spammed Buffs De Buffs and DEATH Magic lol

 

But yea SD3 is a fun game and Rise is a great char! Strong and can be a Buffer [her de buff class isn't worth getting as other chars have better de buffs]

 

 

I'll have to play HoM as well, what system is it for? OF course the DS, just when I'm trying to sell mine I've got to buy another game for it xD... or is there a working Emulator that runs this smoothly?

A true Nintendo fan buys the [DS] system, rather than emulate it at 1fps.  tongue.gif

 

My main team has Riesz (light-dark) for buffs, too (if I remember correctly), Magus Angela, and light-light Hawk (whatever the job names were, lol).

 

MaZa, HoM has been released in North America, you should be able to find a copy at a Gamestop, Wal-Mart, Best Buy, etc.  You need a NDS or 3DS to play it.

I have a DS lite still for the time being, Magus Angelia is good, but Light Light Hawk Eye is kinda redudant imo :3 still, once you beat the game once who cares! A fun team is still better than a "good" team in the end ;3 

post #55 of 151

Now that I boot up the game and take a second look, Hawk looks like he's there as filler more than anything, LOL.  I probably should have gotten Kevin or Duran.  I don't remember how effective Wanderer can be, if at all.

Now I feel like playing again.

I, too, still have a DSLite.

 

I just noticed that you have a Pengin avatar, which makes me think of pengin_chugging_wine.jpg.  wink.gif

Yea Penguin ^^

 

OMG is this from Heros of Mana if so... CRAP xD I might have to BUY it 

post #57 of 151

That's Lightgazer versus Riesz, Hawk, and Kevin; how could you not recognize at least Riesz???  Shame on you!

 

Also, HoM is years before SD3, most of the SD3 heroes aren't even born yet, but we get a different set instead.

I knew who all of them where obviously, I didn't recognize the high res they where in, I was wondering if the game you where talking about just looked that FREAKING epic

post #59 of 151

Jeez, you guys seem to like it so much, I will download it and pop it in my DS too.

 

I have Children of Mana for my DS, which is certainly not their best, but the Mana games are all so different. Secret of Mana on SNES was fine, and I loved the music of Final Fantasy Adventure on game boy:

 

 (rock arrange of the Game Boy song by MintJam)
