NHL '94 updated for the 2024 Trade Deadline!



Quote
This hack will completely update NHL ‘94 for the 2023–2024 trade deadline. The goal is to try to provide the most refined and realistic modern versions of this all-time classic game. Key features include…

New in ’24. 800 players obsessively rated, up-to-date rosters, and realistic lines, based on even more extensive 2020-2024 regular season data. Logos, Colours, Uniforms, Arena names… everything up-to-date for the 2024 season. The Bench area has been completely re-designed, new puck design & animation, re-designed graphic overlays for Shoot-Outs, Penalty-Shots, Goal, Injuries, Stars of the Game, etc. and numerous other refinements.

Gameplay Revisioned. The gameplay has been adjusted for a more realistic modern hockey feel, with harder to score goals, easier to hit crossbars and posts, more realistic speed burst, fewer penalty calls, custom energy depletion and recovery rates (balanced for more realistic line rolling and shift length), and player rating distribution curves that have been carefully calibrated for more realistic gameplay on the ice.

Graphical Refinements. Hundreds of other refinements have been made including ...

So, hypothetical question, if there were a new Ristar game anytime soon, how would you imagine Sega would renovate it or what direction they would take it?

I've seen the fan game "Ristar 2" but it's been over a year since DevBoyDibs made any updates over it and I dunno if I would want Sega to keep Ristar a side-scroller when he could have gameplay like Werehog Sonic.

Double Dragon Studio Wanted To Make A New 2D Golden Axe





Quote
The developer gives a little more information on how the game's magic system would have worked, as well as a proposed dismemberment mechanic:
Magic would be AOE (instead of full screen), but I imagine that the elements would play a big role, not only in terms of weakness, but using different elements against different monster might have different effect, giving opportunity to chop off different parts.
This isn't the first time Secret Base has expressed an interest in working with this IP; last year, it revealed a different mock-up for a new Golden Axe.
Since revealing the proposed pitch, Secret Base has ...

I'm not sure.
What makes me love Ristar is more on the colourful and cute 2D presentation, not the gameplay (I still prefer Sonic's gameplay).



Changing it in 3D is already making it lost half of its charm for me so I would rather it got 2D sequel but with more playable characters with totally different controls.

If taken in a direction similar to Kirby, I can imagine Ristar in a 3D game. Though given Ristar hasn't had a game since the Mega Drive, I doubt it is in Sega's interest to bring him back.


I'm not going to do anything... but I do have ideas for how a new Ristar game could work. Inspired by Meta-Knight, I can imagine a Ristar OC named Alistar, despite being an anti-hero, still wants to help Ristar.
New "minions" to Kaiser Greedy in mind are Null and Void, twin-villains.

EDIT: I've given it some thought, and maybe a "Raymans Origins" approach would be a more ideal approach for Ristar. Reintroduce him as a reboot with a more animated style like modern Rayman games, but still has that colourful vibrancy as Kirby games.

If I ever feel like attempting a concept demo, I might try it. I can imagine face-designs for Ristar, as well as a brand-new backstory as a demigod. I'm tempted to introduce something of the likes of "Star Warriors", his father was a legendary hero amongst them and likely the last of the Star Warriors, who the Star Goddess Oruto had a child with. Because of the heroes absence due to Kaiser Greedy's takeover, Oruto awoken her son to save the Valdi System and find his father.

A reboot with a more animated style?
I would definitely prefer that over 3D reboot.
May be something like the canceled Eartworm Jim 4.

That's a nice story concept.
Kinda remind me of Opa-opa's story in Fantasy Zone II W.
