Obscure port thread?
Obscure port thread
that's not a port though, just a tech demo.
However, this was real.
Who was in charge of this port, and why didn't Capcom didn't approve that, but instead approved a Game.com version?
I'll still never understand Capcom's way of thinking.
I was hyped as fuck for this in the end of 90s: Fucking portable RESI!
Shame it didn't deliver in the end, plus they could've done better with visuals as >>256674403 shows.
The later released DS port was a great substitute though.
I knew that.
It's really interesting to see games like Chronicles of Riddick, Doom 3, Half Life 2, Counter Strike to even Morrowind as bad of a port as that was, even playing on the original Xbox. It made me wonder how much better the port of Deus Ex 1 would've been if it were on the Xbox instead of the PS2. Especially since that shit had fuck huge memory card saves.
>even playing on the original Xbox
The original Xbox was easily the most powerful console of it's generation and had a slew of great titles the PS2 couldn't even begin to play. Put Morrowind on the PS2 and see what happens.
It always did impress me how powerful the original Xbox was. I have the collectors edition of Doom 3 for it and it always ran great and looked pretty good for the meager hardware. Still curious how a game like HL2 or Doom 3 would have looked on PS2 though,
this game was incredible, only AITD i've played. i got my ass handed to me at first by that dreadful top-down combat thing, but i persevered and beat it. terrific game with some great atmosphere.
i wonder how it holds up nowadays
i dug mine out recently and games like Riddick have held up incredibly. jaggies errywhere but it's a great-looking game, and it has lean! on a console! that's the sort of thing that shouldn't be a rare treat.
This version sucks. GBA didn't have the power to calculate trajectories of the bullets, so you couldn't actually dodge them. Bullet time just made you absolutely invincible and without it you just attracted bullets like a magnet and the enemies never missed.
>actually this isn't that impressive
Dead Space for the original xbox
I just think the video was of poor quality. Looked bretty gud (from what I saw) though. I prefer horror games that use darkness to instill fear and atmosphere rather than relying on jump scares. Unfortunately, when Dead Space came out on the seventh gen consoles it was prettier and bright, but it was just jump scares.
I found about this game on another thread on /g/ and I downloaded because I wanted to see it, you got lucky, anon.
is the depth bug emulator only? if yes this game is fucking magic.
I always love seeing shit like this, concepts that they held on to or change for release since some games can end up being completely different and it is nice look and see what could have been.
im not sure if its similar to the ps1 version. but there's nothing very entertaining about it
That's full of shit. Ultima 6 was awful on SNES except for the music. Ultima 3 NES and Ultima 4 SMS are the only good ports.
7 was on SNES as well and god fuck just look at it.
God, Driver 2 and 3 on GBA are horrible. For some reason, GBA got a good number of 3D games, like Medal of Honor and Killswitch. And them you have this. On GBA.
That isn't so obscure actually
this one neither
N64 port was remade from scratch from the PC version, and managed to be even worse.
The GBC Daikatana was an overhead action RPG that looked semi-competent in comparison
I turned my head when I saw these. Not only is it Doom and Doom 2 on the GBA, it's rated T
That is actually running at a higher framerate than the PC version. The original was capped at 5 fps, I'm dead fucking serious here, and can be uncapped to 10 with the Exult emulator. There's actual animation too when moving.
Everything else makes me want to puke though.
Yeah I have both of these as well as Wolf3D, they're all reasonably good ports given the limited power of the GBA. Wolf3D is M which is odd, because Doom was T and the blood was green.
I've played a significant chunk of it and I suppose it could be worse.
Most of the original Deus Ex is there. The biggest change is the levels, they've been chopped up and loading times are everywhere. The PS2 had essentially no RAM.
I'm glad they did what they could with this game instead of dumbing it down.
Everyone knows about Doom, Wolfenstein, and Duke Nukem for GBA.
But what about this?
I had this game when my memory started working (age 2 1/2), I just remember getting up, asking my mom why I was suddenly at age 2, and then going to my bed and playing KI on my game boy. My parents thought I was retarded for the rest of the day.
There's a PC port of Glover, Star Wars Rogue Squadron and Podracer.
I'm running into a problem, my VM won't run XP any more and I need it for my shitty flashcart's client software..
I'll reinstall but it'll take time, hope the thread's still alive.
the framerate is single-digits and it's extremely glitchy, you can barely even see what's going on sometimes. The suicide bomb guys have a cool digitized AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH though so that's nice.
It's only about an hour long, you could just go play it
Smash Bros looks impressive.
It's more so that most western third parties have abandoned handhelds after PSP, so you get less lunatics with programming experience trying to cram whatever they can on small hardware.
If you're going that route, this didn't come out that long ago on the PS1's successor.
More of a "demake" but an obscure port nonetheles.
They're porting Bayonetta 1 though, should have used that.
ELINK. It's a very shitty thing, I only bought it because it was dirt cheap. A lot of games get save issues but it's booting fine.
I have an EZ IV Lite Deluxe but no Lite to play it on.
You niggas won't understand hype until you play
FUCKING STREET FIGHTER ALPHA
on the GBC
Sorry to jump into your guys conversation buy you both seem knowledgeable about carts, what GBA flash cart should I grab?
I'm about to buy a GBA SP AGS 101, I see EZ-Flash IV and EZ Flash V, but is the V only for DS systems? What is the best cart as of now to grab for it? I'm tired of using my PSP, the emulation and sound on it is very unreliable and nothing like the originals that I used to have.
>try playing RE2 on my Vita the other day
>tfw holding forward on the left stick feels like shit because of the machine's flimsy as fuck sticks
I just want to play RE2 under my bedcovers goddamnit.
The V is a DS flash cart. The IV is a GBA flash cart.
My experience with the IV is very good. I don't know much about GBA carts, but I've not had any problems with this particular one.
Works on the DS as well, and if you manage to install the FlashMe firmware it plays DS games alongside GBA games.
I'm sure there was probably a mod that recreated it but that wasn't a rom. We didn't have DS emulators back then, let alone ones that were optimized well enough to run on PCs from back then
So on the topic of that Asterix game, it looks just like the video does. Same distortion effects around the screen edges, same layering issues, same stable framerate.
One thing which isn't shown off is that L/R freely rotates the camera, which is very impressive.
It's got some frame rate dips and it's not as pretty as the PC version but considering what a power house it was the fact they made it playable at all is impressive. I'm still surprised it exists.
Nothing that great, but fun if you enjoyed Resident Evil 4.
The levels are rendered in the same way that levels were rendered in the original DOOM, and the characters and npc's are 2d sprites.
Looks really good though thanks to the artstyle. It's very surprising that all this technology was used on a licensed game.
Zeebo, a brazilian/mexican console that came in 2009 and is no longer available. It was based on digital games only but the server is no longer operating so everyone who bought it have an expensive paperweight
The last N64 game ever made.
how long will be the ps3?
The only one I know is "Zeebo Sports", but there may be more.
Fun facts: this same company still sells Sega Genesis in Brazil, basically an emulator with controllers and an a/v cable
Not obscure, but it deserves mention for being the ultimate hand cramper.
I used to play this one, was really fun since i could play withouth peripherals
I was kinda right. The library is just a bunch of ports and sports games. Also
>$170 for this piece of crap
>It doesn't even have 2 player
Man this port had so much cooler shit.
Fuck that doll that could chase you around and fuck your shit up though.
How did Gamecube end up being the RE-machine for its gen?
Resident Evil 2 on the Tiger Game.Com
My first gameboy color game. I loved rouge spear on PC so I got my dad to buy this.
It was ass but the music was fucking awesome.
Listen to that shit
This one is somewhat known.
The PSX version of THPS4 is an anomaly though.
There was a guy in one of these threads who didn't even know that THPS4 came out on the later consoles.
>Parents bought me SNES in 98, two years after N64 released (and when PS1 was all the rage)
>Parents bought me PS1 in 2002, two years after PS2 released
>Parents bought me a PS2 a month before PS3 released
Well that's a progress
>Got a job and can bought myself DS/PSP/3DS/Vita/360 in their prime era
Feels good man
never officially released, but a recent looking glass studios leak by a dreamcast collector who had LGS' dreamcast sdk revealed that system shock 2 and thief 2 were due for dreamcast ports.
Reminds me of this. Playing it is pretty hellish.
Half life 1 had a dreamcast port in the workings as well with heavily overhauled graphics, and the blue shift expansion. But then it died, so they just released Blue Shift on PC, which is why it feels skimpier compared to other entries.
There's a retsupurae video of a guy playing the dreamcast version somehow, which I've never understood.
the dreamcast version is out there, it was leaked.
It also supports HL1 mods, albeit not accurately.
This game was ported to several platforms, and the best port was for the Amiga, not the consoles. Especially musically where it completely destroyed the console versions.
there it is on bottom left, along with the majority of the rest of game boy games collection
nothing except if you use a DC controller.
but DC had mouse/keyboard support. In fact, it even has a great version of Quake 3. Which is STILL alive to this day, AND you can play with PC players.
I don't have a dreamcast mouse/keyboard.
The Dreamcast controls are shit. Analog is look, abxy is move. Everything else is mapped to the d-pad, with L being a modifier button (i.e, left is a different action to L+left)
well OK. There's more than just half-life, but if you feel that way that's fine.
There's also ICO for the Playstation 1.
Thankfully it was made for the Ps2 instead, but it's awfully notable how they STILL had the incredibly advanced lighting and animation (inverse kinematics).
It was of course, cancelled when the Ps2 came into the scene.
Diablo on the Game Boy
I played 1 and 2 on PC
>IT ALL DEPENDS ON YOUR SKILL! GO FOR BROKE
"Remake" depends on your definition. They're largely the same games on another platform, so I think they'd count. The 3ds wiki also lumps remakes and ports together, if that helps.
It's not Arcade, its just base Super, and the camera thing was a gimmick for the console. It's optional and impractical but kind of neat I guess.
They're not bad ports by any stretch, just home system to handheld ports. A lot of them are really good because devs wanted to really stretch the limits of the system and see what they could do with it. Now the opposite is happening, handheld games getting ported to home systems like RE: Revelations and Arkham Blackgate.
>tfw I will never get the chance to play Zeebo Double Dragon
God-fucking-dammit Million, port that shit over to PC or something so other people can actually play it!
Didn't they compress MGS4 down to around 33GB? I heard they did that.
Not to mention the Xbox version of Doom 3 added in online co-op which the PC version didn't had. Same with the Expansion Resurrection of Evil.
Quality of rig doesnt matter. It's completely luck. I managed to beat the game with no major fucks up, but to some the game can
>Run insanely low framerate
>Looks like absolutely insanely dogshit
>run 3X faster than it should
>CRASH CRASH CRASH
If you have it, I recommend trying it out and hoping it works cause it's awesome.
Saints Row 3 rocks too and so does 4. i never played 1 though cause im a fag with no 360
I think I may have been the only person to ever finish this.
before any idiot comes by, that's not the HD collection, it's just a mod to mock it.
the HD collection is still utter garbage.
I can always find ZOE fans who dont know this exsists, and is awesome.
This motherfucker right here has full colour FMV's, on the GBC.
The bluray disc is 31gb.
Game's full install is 9gb. MGO took around 3gb to itself, so the rest of that space used up is solely dialog and hours upon hours of mo-cap animations, with the odd FMV cutscene peppered in.
One of the last Megadrive games non the less.
PS1 port Had an exclusive 3d viewmode.
Downside was, to save the game took a whole fucking 15 blocks.
on the topic of shitty ports.
this game's PC port is all sorts of lazy.
>no jump button
>no custom controls
>fall through the floor at points
>some objects are intangible
>mouse aceleration cannot be turned off
it was ok for an iOS game but this shit should be unnaceptable on a PC.
thankfully some of the problems were patched recently.
Suikoden on the Sega Saturn.
And now they put that port on every Sega plug-and-play game
This is a top down isometric version, and is better than the main console game.
Modern Warfare: Mobilized was actually a fantastic game. The multiplayer was fantastic, but the single player was jaw dropping for a DS game. I put around 120 hours into it. I hate Call of Duty.
Bitches dont know that this had a better campaign than WAW proper.
>PS1 Transport Tycoon used the whole Memory card of 15 blocks
>Diablo 1 PS1 used 10
Jesus! Usually on average, PS1 games use around 1-3 blocks depending on the game. What was Sony thinking making memory cards have so little space?
At least you can buy those 3rd party ones which has a switch on them to change "pages" to the next 15 blocks. I knew a friend that had a memory card that had 30 blocks and you can switch between the 2 pages of 15 with a press of a button thats on the card. I know there are memory cards that has 60+ blocks on them.
That was a fantastic port. There were glitches everywhere in the cutscenes but it was otherwise a 1:1 copy with extra content. The PSP version of Project 8 was a 1:1 copy of the PS2 version as well.
better than it's reputation.
Forget the original game, and what we have is a pretty decent zombie survival shooter on the RE4 engine. With no limits outside of missions.
this. This is how i was first introduced to Dead Rising and it's story. Never played the 360 version. But i did get 2. Still love chop till you drop.
I get a chop till you drop 2 for wii u. I be curious how re4 or 5 gameplayed would stack up to the normal amount of zombies in Dead Rising 2
I forced myself to complete this aberration after paying full retail price for it.
Oh boy, a barely upgraded port of an ancient PC/360 subscription-based Monhon game.
The console Sims were pretty damn good for what they were. Especially Bustin' Out.
Better than switching to disc 2.
We Ps3 now
Here we see the Anti-port. Every one of these is a completely different game.
Had a blast with console sim games.
Doom 1 is based on the Jaguar Port, it lacks a lot of levels and they fucked up the order of the music.
Doom 2 on the other hand uses a completely different engine to run the whole thing (i think it's the same engine used for Duke Nukem Advance), it has all the levels but some levels like MAP15 and 29 had to be split in two because the engine couldn't render such big levels.
The absolute best is The Sims 2 for the PS2/Xbox/Gamecube. In fact, it's probably the best game ever, for two main reasons:
1. You can actually control your character instead of just telling him what to do. So you walk around and press X or whatever to interact with objects.
2. IT HAS SPLIT SCREEN MULTIPLAYER. It's fucking awesome. You and a friend control separate characters. Me and my brother spent so many hours playing that fucking game.
COD1 is on the 360, yet nobody seems to know.
This means, you can play every single main series CoD on the Xbox 360. 1,2,3,MW1,WAW,MW2,Blops,MW3,Blops2, Ghosts, Advanced Warfare.
>2. IT HAS SPLIT SCREEN MULTIPLAYER. It's fucking awesome. You and a friend control separate characters. Me and my brother spent so many hours playing that fucking game.
That sounds pretty great. How was build mode handled?
We ended up taking turns on Sims 1/2 back in the day of having 2+ gaming rigs in the house. Having everyone build their houses in the same neighborhood had its own fun quirks though.
Was this any good?
I used to own a copy of this, never knew what happened to it though.
Whoever pressed start and selected build mode was the one who was able to build.
If you have a friend and want to waste a few hours, I recommend buying it. I'm constantly recommending Sims 2 for consoles in these threads. It's just really cool.
Kind of a shitty video, but that's what it's like. There was also a single player story mode that was fun.
I was playing Half-Life on my Dreamcast back in 2004 or so. Just burn it to a disk like any other DC game
I remember seeing the player's guide for it at Fred Meyer about a week before it was canceled. Wish I would have grabbed one just to have
>Mfw I got this as a rental when I broke my foot
>Didnt get to finish it
That was the first PC game I purchased with my own cash
>tfw i played 3 and 4 on the PS1 for years and only years later i played the "next-gen" versions on the PC.
It was werid and cool at the same time to re-play those games but "better", 3 specially felt the same and different at the same time.
Lets take a pick up & play puzzler, and force you to sit at home to play.
About the size and thickness of 3 DVD cases.
I remember seeing one selling factory sealed for 25 bucks at where I live
Well...not factory sealed I guess, but I didn't buy it because I didn't felt like it, I just wanted a good GBA game to play, now the store that sold that one closed and god knows what happened to it
Motherfucking Rayman 2.
Fuck your "obscure port", how about finding something that goddamn game DIDN'T get ported to.
Shit thats neat.
Too bad I never even had internet for my PS2, let alone a game (Im guessing it was this and FFXI) that used M+KB
Also I remember the part when the room compacts had a glitch where you could get stuck forever
Was it the PS2 or Dreamcast versions that had that god awful voice acting?
Fucking Billy West as Rayman. Shit boils my blood. I have hated that motherfucker ever since he ruined Ren and Stimpy.
About two and a third.
Also, pic related to thread.
While we're on the subject...
How about obscure cartoons that never made it past the pilot?
>never made it past the pilot
Nigga you could see more episodes in the suggested videos.
I've got a whole set I'm about to sell on eBay. 2 guitars, drums, mic, and game. Only thing is the guitars don't have the dongles that you need to plug into the PS3 to play, so I can't test those.
>excited because the game has spanish voice acting
>Awful 5pa1n voice acting
>restarts the game
>changes the language to english
>the english VA is even worst
Good thing the N64 ver. was so much better in probably everything single aspect of the game.
