    Default Can Sega-16 Beat Every Sega CD Game in 2014? - The Official Thread!

    Time to move to the new thread for 2015!

    Can Sega-16 Beat Every Sega CD Game in 2014?

    Current status: 32.6% complete (46/141)

    See also:
    Can Sega-16 Beat the "Other" 172 Genesis Games + the 65 PAL Games in 2014?
    Can Sega-16 Beat Every 32X Game in 2014? - The Official Thread!


    RULES

    • We're beating all of the officially-licensed games released in the US for the Sega CD, except the 32X games which are in a different thread. Of these, 142 141 total are beatable.
    • We begin at midnight on January 1, 2014 in your local time zone, and end at 11:59 PM on December 31, 2014.
    • Victory conditions: the "default" is to beat each game on Normal/Medium or higher difficulty, and to do whatever's needed to get a good ending (it doesn't have to be the best ending, but can't be a bad ending). If the game allows you to change the starting number of lives or continues, you may, though default settings are slightly preferred.
    • We're using the honor system, but screenshots of the ending screens are strongly preferred. Best of all is to take a photograph, and put a piece of paper with your username in the shot.
    • No cheats, codes, or old passwords/savegame files from before January 1, 2014. Emulation is OK but no savestates.
    • No claims or "reserving" games -- first come, first serve, and anyone can beat any game at any time. But if you're working on a long game, let us know and we'll try not to step on each other's toes.
    • If someone else has beaten the game you wanted, you're welcome to beat it too, and we'll make a note of it. You're especially encouraged to beat it on a higher difficulty, get the best ending, use a different character or a different scenario, 1CC/1LC the game, etc.
    • If you don't know what it takes to beat a particular game, ask, but we may not know the answer for all games. You don't have to beat fighting games with every character. If a game should have special conditions, let us know.
    • Any registered member of Sega-16 can participate. Members with fewer than 10 posts are strongly encouraged to include screenshots of ending screens; if you just say "Hey, what up, I beat Sonic and Shining Force", we'll probably ignore you.
    • PAL exclusives and/or Good Deal Games releases may be added for a "bonus", but aren't part of the main event.
    • Everyone is encouraged to write a little something about each game. Tell us how to beat it, tell us what you like or don't like about it, tell us something you discovered that no one else on the Internet has written about. Make this thread fun to read, and a helpful document for future generations of Sega CD players!

    ^Nice. Vids seem to be marked private at the moment, but I'll mark down the wins regardless!

    Sega CD The Lords of Thunder are now peasants of mere sparks.

    I beat Lords of Thunder.

    Nice shmup, with a shop system, fantasy visuals, FMV and rocking metal soundtrack. It is also quite easy, I 1LC'd it on normal, have done so on hard before.

    I'm currently working on Popful Mail and I must say that it is a very fun game indeed.

    Mansion of Hidden Souls got pinned to the corkboard:





    Played and beaten tonight, with my fiancée. We'd never fired it up before, but were able to finish it within 3 hours.

    It's more enjoyable if you think of it as a visual novel than a graphic adventure/puzzler, since the puzzles don't amount to much -- there's even an in-game oracle that tells you what to do next -- though there are one or two clever touches. It's not as attractive as I was expecting, though, with painfully slow animations and a lot of Sega CD dithering. And occasionally the dialogue is almost incomprehensible, especially the Hunter's extended soliloquy which is buried in audio effects and low sound levels.

    Panic! got its buttons pushed:



    The final shot before the end credits, which are rather nicely done. Not sure if there's anything special for 100% completion (we had something like 90% scenes, 75% gags) or not blowing up any landmarks (we destroyed 28/30!).

    I beat this with my fiancée, who made maps while I handled the controls. We'd played Panic! before for an hour or so, but we'd both forgotten how big it is, with 100 different scenes and tons of content that's only occasionally reused. All told, it took close to ten hours of gameplay, and while we could've been less completist about it, you do have to try just about every branch in a game like this.

    We didn't bother saving until we were well into the game, so we overlooked the game's limited-but-readymade mapping framework until we'd already made maps that ended up looking like this:



    Pretty convoluted, but it got us through.

    I'm going to start working on Sonic CD now. Btw, I think games with saves/passwords should still be claimable. Could be quite annoying if two guys work on the same game for a long time and then one beats it, which makes the other one's efforts in vain. Just my two cents.

    I think individuals should be encouraged to beat as many CD games as possible this year. Inevitably the 142 game goal will be an bi-product of this. I like to work on several games at any given time and alternate games as I feel. Completing a game you enjoyed playing would never be in vain. Two people working on a horrible game or extremely difficult games simultaneously would increase the odds of it being completed. I can see how one might feel their efforts where in vain in that case.

    I don't think its a bad idea to let people know what your working on if you want to. And if you feel its a race, hurry up!

    ^Well said! While I'm definitely sympathetic to the idea that it'd be disappointing to get "scooped", the claim system was problematic and I think we're probably best served by encouraging folks to play as much as possible. I often juggle several games at once, and find that it helps to keep gaming from feeling like work. Last year we really had a lot of people who claimed games and then disappeared for months at a time, or never came back.

    That said, if someone's actively working on a game and is getting close to the end, it's nice not to snatch the victory out from under them, especially if you've beaten the game before and they haven't. That's part of why I encourage people to post progress reports on long games.

    I was reading about "The Misadventures of Flink" in the issue of GameFan that arrived two weeks ago, and it looked pretty good. (Volume 3, Issue 1 - Phantasy Star IV cover.)

    Today, someone is dropping off "Flink" & Terminator for the Sega CD, so "I think I'll Flink". I've only played a few minutes of it on an emulator, but I'll be playing it on real hardware and take screenies at the end.

    You'll ike it. I own a copy and it has great music and visuals. It has no save system though so be prepared to play straight through.
