Here’s a video from 2014 with a robo suit more like Ripley’s in Alien



That thing above is more like doctor octopus or mecha Belial

Ah fuck I love you guys. It's one of the best-designed worst-designed games ever. Used to play it for hours on SNES with friends, NEVER got past the 2nd level. EVER.

The original arcade game was designed with two joysticks for each player, one to move your opponent and one to aim in the direction of fire so you could move in any direction while shooting in any independent direction. No buttons. Obviously the controls had to be altered with the regular snes pad. ( I think you could strafe by holding down a button but it still wasn’t any where near the level of control ) making the home ports much more difficult in what was already an extremely hard quarter eater.

I think that was true of the 2-button NES port but not the 4-button SNES?

Yeah I think you could shoot in 4 directions ( maybe you could hold with L and R ). I forget how the genesis 3 button version handled it.

EDIT, the NES version let you use the D pad on then second port.

I played some re-release on the first xbox and had so much fun. I loved that game in the arcade and always longed for making it into the Pleasure Dome. I read a bunch of guides on gamefaqs and finally did it. definitely underwhelming, haha.

I never hear people talk about the follow-up, Total Carnage, which satirized the gulf war SHOCKINGLY quickly after it began. within a year, I think?
"An evil Middle Eastern dictator named General Akhboob has been building an army of mutants and a stockpile of chemical weapons at his country's "Baby Milk Factory." It is up to Captain Carnage (Player 1) and Major Mayhem (Player 2), to invade Akhboob's base, rescue all the reporters and other hostages, and capture Akhboob." I felt like it was clearly a send-up, but in retrospect maybe it was 100% xenophobic? best case is Team America territory, I guess.

oh jesus that "NO WAY" is so legendary. if I remember right (and I sure as shit ain't wading through dozens of twitch talker-overers to answer this) mutoid man's intention felt like it shifted from a "no way [you can beat me]" to "no way [this is happening - I am being bested]" as the battle progressed. of course this is all in my head - there was only one audio clip. BUT would it loop and interrupt itself as he was on the ropes? like "NO W- N-N-NO WAY"? pretty sure that happened, and I loved it.

yeah I have zero fond gameplay memories of total carnage, but I still think its a curious political relic

nothing captures the fragility of the male psyche quite like the catastrophic hollowness of the experienced Pleasure Dome
