Since I was a wee boy one of my favorite games of all time has been the Monster Rancher series, to those that don't know, it's a typical pet simulator with a fantastic twist; your pets are spawned from your CDs. You'd open up your Playstation and put in a different disc and it would read the data and ask you to reinsert the Monster Rancher disc, then it generates a monster based on the data.

Who else has played parts of this imaginative and original game series?

Dude, I wanted one of those games, but only my friend had it. And he was lucky because he had it for dreamcast, and he seemed to own every dreamcast game in existance. So he had alot of monsters.

If only I could find that game now...

Wow, that brings back memories. I started to watch the TV show, and play the game at the same time. I loved it. The show rocked my socks. I remember searching my entire house for new CD's to get new monsters. I almost went out and bought new cds just to get some different characters from them. I loved that aspect of the game, and taking your little (or big) guy out on adventures. But most of the game was just menus, and fighting wasn't as fun as it could have been. After a while, I just got bored with it. But while the whole phase lasted, it was good.

P.S. Suezo rules.

SUEZO IS PUNY!

The Durahan shall conquer all!

I have bought Monster Rancher 2 (twice, broke the first one), Monster Rancher 4, and Monster Rancher Advance, and I don't regret any of it. They're all uber-fun.

They are fun.

The ability to create monsters using words/CDs/DVDs/games is such a unique concept I can't wait for a sequel... I mean a true sequel, I'm not buying Monster Rancher Evo... circus stuff is lame.

In other news (and a double post, a rare from me) I entered Smon into Monster Rancher Advance 2 and this is what I got:

Can't... yet.

You start out with just the ability to enter 4 letter codes.

I'll find a save file later on and load that up and enter... later.

I always liked the way those jelly guys looked. So badass. But mine would never connect with the cannon fire move. It always seemed to miss, and he always got his butt kicked in fights. So I had to send him to that big Monster Ranch in the sky....

Smon

Jells do kick ass. Snott is half Jell, half Zuum. He knows seven different techniques... OF DOOM. Jell Top, Ray Beam, Spiked Jell Top, Whip, Jell Cube, Stab, and Pierce. He's Rank C as of today.

Hehe, Darl.

Anyway. I have MR2, and MRA2. I don't know where my MR2 is though. My favorite monsters to train were Zuums and Worms. It made me sad that the Worms aren't in MRA2.

I remember the cartoon somewhat, too. I got into it before getting into the game.

Smon
07-14-2006, 06:04 PM
BEHOLD! I also picked up MR1 and MRA1 (they're dirt cheap) and created more monsters!

For my MR1 monster I just popped in MR2 and went with whatever came up, to my surprise it was purebred golem I promptly named Thrik, after our local resident moderator.
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v445/Smon/thrik.png
My MRA1 monster is generated from... a word I forgot, it might've been Taco... idakno. Anyway, he was a purebred Suezo and I named him Lee Lemon... if you don't get that you don't watch Futurama enough.

And here's a full pic of Snott from MR2.

I don't wanna say anything illegal, but you can find them at pawn shops and stuff... *coughcough*Romsites and torrents*coughcough* but since Tecmo doesn't even make money off them anymore (PS1 and GBA are dead as of Final Fantasy 8 and Drill Dozer) I doubt they'd be at Gamestop or anyplace like that.

not until you make me. Or have the ability to type in more than 4 letters and do 'Hannibal'.

Also, you said there would be fish filet....

Smon
07-14-2006, 11:54 PM
That's a joke about the unofficial, official thing.

Also, I couldn't make Thrik either. I just named the Golem Thrik.

If you want me to name a monster after you, you'll have to specify what kind of monster you want to be.

Half Pixie half Suezo? Half Zuum half Gel?

The combos are all here, and I have enough CDs to get a lot of monsters, so I can just mix-n-match, just pick from MR1 and 2 only, I can't find 4. (http://www.monsterrancher.com/)

I hate to double post BUT THIS MUST BE HEARD! ...or I just want to drum up traffic, either way...

I'm sick of Monster Rancher 1, so I'm tranferring Thrik into Monster Rancher 2, and I will prompty make him fight Snott, who are you betting on? Thrik is very strong, but his accuracy and speed are crap, while Snott is all around average at everything, but specializes in accuracy and speed, so place your bets!

Played the game like an ace, now he's in this place, a place where the monster's rule. Monster Racher! Monsters rule. Monster Rancher. Monsters rule. Monster Rancher.
