Has anyone played the Magic Carpet games? I got them off of GoG. I got to level 30 out of 75 and called it quits because the levels are pretty repetitious and average to about 40 minutes. So I moved onto the sequel. There are only 25 levels but there is much more variety, feels more like a proper vidya.
Just wanted to give you some input on these games used to play the hell out of em. Back in 94 my friends dad got Magic Carpet 1 the other worlds and we played the hell out of it. I loved the crazy monsters on it and the spells. The level were long I get you on that but damm scorched earth on the levels was great. As for part two I liked the increase in spells they gave you, and the day and night maps. I didn't really care for the underground maps myself. The multiplayer part is a plus too. I just felt it was too short. My favorite is the first one, but two is good for the...

nothing is sacred
They are for mobiles
>ForwardWorks, the mobile gaming division set up by Sony from the ashes of PlayStation Mobile, today announced it will be launching its 2 maiden games in 2017 for Android and iOS devices. They were revealed to be mobile versions of classic PlayStation RPG titles, Wild Arms and Arc the Lad. This is just the beginning, as ForwardWorks will be focused on rebooting PlayStation titles for smart devices.
What's the ultimate handheld console emulator?
I'd love to be /vr/ on the go or /vr/ and comfy, but I can't really choose what's the best console to play everything.
Are there any /vr/ approved consoles?
what are some retro games where hot chicks fight monsters
Ghost Sweeper Mikami
Golden Axe series (1 for juicy ass, 2 for nice cleavage)
So I really love GBA RPGs like Final Fantasy Tactics Advance, Golden Sun, Advance Wars etc, and I've just discovered emulation and overdosed on SNES RPGs.
Which of these should I play first?
>Dragon Quest VI
>Final Fantasy: IV
>Final Fantasy: Mystic Quest

Phantasy Star IV is better than every one of them.
Why the fuck didnt this get a Super Nintendo release
Its not like theres much text to translate
Well, let's take a look at Mario Paint sales around the globe:
North America: 1.43m (51.9% of all units)
Europe: 0.54m (19.6%)
Japan: 0.71m (25.9%)
Rest of the World: 0.07m (2.6%)
= Global 2.75m
So looks like the peripheral wasn't exactly a failure. But maybe mid-1993 was a little too late for a new game for it, or Nintendo simply didn't have enough faith in it..
Hey, /vr/. Do we have a list of good Sierra style point-and-click adventure games anywhere? Pic related is probably my favorite game of the genre so far, and in my opinion maybe the funniest game of all time period.
It's easily the best thing George Lucas was ever lucky enough to have associated with his name.
Anyway, I want more such games, to play for fun and to help me get a better feel for the genre because I have this weird urge to make one myself. They can be funny like DotT or more serious like the Gabriel Knight games, just as long as they're good.
Should I bother playing this before playing Soul Reaver? I tried it once and got a short way into it but dropped it for some reason I can't remember.
Just a reminder to all of you fighting two decade long console wars that you're all lucky, spoiled brats who have no idea what a REAL terrible game console is like.
>literally only five games
>all of them are light gun shooters
>system uses VHS tapes, so there's no way to ever really change or interact with anything
>can't even get a game over
>all the system does is track if you hit the targets and keeps score
You know, I played this as a child and just recently replayed it. Held up well. Opinion?
How were the 90's the comfiest for games?
What is the appeal of difficulty games?
Is this translation good or should I go for a fan one or sword of mana instead?
Did it have any games on it that weren't irredeemable garbage?
What are your thoughts on using a raspberry pi as a retro console ?
>What are your thoughts on using a raspberry pi as a retro console ?
It's fine if you want to emulate something from the second generation, but anything else is going to lag to hell and back. SMS and Genesis may run fairly well, also. You can certainly forget SNES, PS1 and N64 emulation. You might be able to get "acceptable" SNES performance, but that's going to include occasional audio stutter and other hiccups.
You may be better off recycling an old desktop and just hooking it up to your television via VGA or whatever output you can support.
It's still spooky.
What makes you happy, /vr/?
In terms of /vr/ matters?
Playing with my actual childhood consoles and games and still being able to enjoy them.
The fact these things are now expensive and sought-after also add to it, but it's mostly just the joy of playing.
Segas? It'll be a flashback, anon...
Before I die I just need to know one thing. Has anyone else played and beaten E.G.G?
I got it from a friend who didn't like it and handed it off to me.
I got as far as the stupid 14-gate puzzle or whatever before I quit in frustration.
Also, a lot of the walkthroughs seem inaccurate.
Got a fuckton of these for a cheap price
What the fuck is this? Is it worth anything?
...and no, they're just poopy shareware titles
I just learned something:
> Duke Nukum was the Title of the 2.0 version of Duke Nukem in order to avoid a lawsuit with the Captain Planet cartoon show. However Apogee learned that the name was not copyrighted so they registered it and used it for all future titles.
Contrary to popular belief, most of the reasons people have for the video game crash of 1983 are mere myths:
>It wasn't Pac-Man or E.T.
>It wasn't the amount of consoles on the market
>It wasn't 3rd party devs
>It wasn't the PC industry
>It wasn't bad games

Need some help finding a CRT TV for some good old retro gaming and also possibly some no frame lag fighting games. Any suggestions?
>using the on board speakers full stop
>tfw mine has better speakers than my satellites and a built-in sub
Yeah... I dunno. Anybody try this out?
I'm pretty skeptical. Could a service like this really be beneficial for the business and retro gamers alike?
Don't these services always send out fairly cheap bargain bin games though?
I have a feeling the samples they send to youtubers are cherry picked to have good stuff, but most people get crap.
>Don't these services always send out fairly cheap bargain bin games though?
Indeed. There's no way they would stock some of the more expensive retro games, much less risk letting them fall into the hands of unscrupulous individuals who would never send them back.
Little known video game facts
A mildly experienced player can reach literally any World in SMB3 in under 5 min, with the tradeoff of less (or no) backup inventory items. It was a perfect setup of built-in mechanics and shortcuts, conceived to make a save battery basically pointless.
And yet there's people in this board RIGHT NOW who think the SMAS version is superiorer because it slaps save mechanics on it
Snes emulation / Nedi shader
Does /vr play like this?
What went so
rightwith this one...
foot in my mouth just fuck my shit upwith this one?
Well I mean, only one of those three is /vr/-approved...
But you shut your whore mouth about SPM. It's still just as charming as the first two even if it isn't an RPG and doesn't have cool partners.
retro character that are literally you
Not sure if anyone is really knowledgeable about this, but when I try to play King's Field (Japan) via swap method, the game doesn't load. I read others have the same problem. They claimed the only way to play it was by importing a Japanese PS1, or just emulating the game. I would really rather play it on real hardware since I have it. Surely there's some way to get it working.
Any good alternative to this wiki? Used to look it up because I thought it had all games worth playing of a platform even if there was tons of mediocre shit in it but can't trust it anymore after I failed to find some true classics on it.
I still use it for reference material but at this point I rather look up IGNs top 100 lists if I want to find a new game to play.
An alternative? No.
You could just update the wiki. Keep in mind that typically speaking, anybody that's played the classics that should be added to that list aren't using that wiki or don't go to that website anymore.
It's a wiki, just fucking add them - nobody's going to take them away. There's shit on there that has single digit scores on Metacritic but as long as you write up a little description anything's fine.
I don't really get the recent backlash towards it either, it's a useful tool to find some obscure games. Using it as some kind of test of your personal taste isn't useful.
