Anthropomorphic ferrets are only cool if they break dance every thirty minutes in the game.

So they took the Pokemon: Mystery Dungeon interface and used it in a different game.

'I can barely take care of myself let alone a beast.' Classic line.

That wasn't bad, I was expecting them to be like really hating the game but they said they enjoyed a bit.

I expect an ineffable Japanese word...

Mystery Dungeon: Shiren the Wanderer was released for the SNES in 1995. This game is Shiren the Wanderer 3.

Pokemon: Mystery Dungeon is a licensed spinoff that Nintendo ordered from the makers of Shiren.

This is a roguelike. It's based on the classic 1980 American-made PC game Rogue. It's nothing like other Japanese games today.

I'm buying this and all, but I don't need a plot. If the plot consisted of a message at the beginning of the game that said "Crawl these dungeons, asshole!", I would gladly crawl them for eternity.

I kinda got the feeling that Jeff wouldn't mind playing this game all the way through.. Or at least a while longer, I think  they should make a few episodes out of it....

another ignorant post from a gamer who has no idea what they're talking about.  Roguelike games have been around for over 25 years, and they started here in America.  Shiren is an ip that's been around for a while in Japan, but has never really made it big here.  So if you enjoy a challenge, aka unlike most games out now, I suggest trying this one out.

The recent games that have gotten a quick look leave something to be desired.

Jeff play some Dark Spire on the DS if you want a dungeon game.

It's not ignorant. Even if it is Roguelike why does it play exactly like a SNES game? Why does it look like crap? Why have menu's and UI's that have been around for 25 years? Japan barely ever advances games these days keeping the same formular nearly every time. That's what I meant.

These Mystery Dungeon games are an acquired taste...but for those of us who have acquired it, this one rocks hard!
 
This is a game all about trying to most effectively manage the random items you com across so as to kick the dungeon's BUTTOX!
 
Also, goofs, this is just the trainer dungeon, don't worry, your MISSION will become clear soon enough.

#31 Posted by S0ndor (2715 posts) -

This and Master Blaster are the only 2 quick looks I don't like.

#32 Posted by Rhaknar (5939 posts) -

These are so hilarious when you just skip through the videos about every inch or so. You just hear random comments. Someone needs to make a collage or random things said in Quicklooks.

Heh, as for the game, mystery dungeons were always kinda funky. I played a few of them, but I couldn't get into them.

#41 Posted by ZenaxPure (2569 posts) -

I enjoy this style of dungeon crawling RPG every now and then and the last one I played was the original Pokemon Mystery Dungeon, kind of want this game.

#43 Posted by Myomoto (310 posts) -

If you're the least bit intrigued by this, look up Dungeon Crawl - Stone Soup. Free opensource roguelike for the pc, very awesome.

Pogs and Homeboys in Outerspace. This is the most '90s quicklook ever.
