In hindsight isn't it weird that such a random country is responsible for half of what video games are? Think about it, imagine if it was any other random ass asian country, like Laos or something, wouldn't it be weird as fuck?
So talking to a friend today about our backlogs and how strapped we are for time to play games, made me think of when I was younger and was instead time-rich and game poor.
Not a new notion by any means, but which games did you put the burn on back in the day, the games you played to death and then just kept on playing?
For me I remember Shining Force III on Saturn got so many hours of playtime. I got up to the Vandal boss in the haunted house and couldn't get any further on my first playthrough. I re-started the game from the beginning, and managed to finish... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Played the hell out of Rayman 2 on the PC. The game is pretty linear but I still went through trying to get all the lums, cages, and secret level endings. Still my favorite Rayman game in terms of gameplay, story, and aesthetics. Overall really charming. Really felt they nailed this one. I still make an effort to play it through at least once a year. 3 was kind of a let down, but still hoping we'll see any kind of Rayman 4, even if it's not like the 2nd.
I bought one a little over 2 years ago and although I wouldn't drop the amount of money for a brand new car to play Neo Turf Masters on it, I think I've gathered up a pretty decent little collection at this point.
So far I've got The Super Spy, Ninja Combat, (meh I know but they were the ones that came with the console), Top Player's Golf, The King of Monsters, Samurai Shodown, Fatal Fury Special, Magician Lord, Crossed Swords, Baseball Stars 2 & Nam 1975
I would like to pick up a few more for it but I'm not sure which ones I have... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2783246 Yeah some of those are really nice especially the consolized MVS's made of stained walnut wood but damned that AES is a sexy machine too. How much are MVS to AES conversion carts going for these days?
>>2783239 I would advise getting rid of the AES and getting an MVS instead honestly.
AES is just too damn pricey. I'm even feeling the burn on MVS and theres only a handful more games I even really want for it. namely Neo Drift Out, Neo Turf Masters, Twinkle Star Sprites, Blazing Star, Bust-a-move 2, and Shocktroopers.

I went back to play on a real genesis for the first time in like 20 years. Damn the sound is terrible. I mean I never owned one but I played on my buddies at the time. Hours with zombies ate my neighbors.
A good revision too.
Was actually the first time I remembered something from childhood not being that terrible only to play now and it just being so inferior to the SNES.
Have any games from your childhood turned out to not be that great now that you’re an adult?
I would say the Dreamcast versions are pretty great. As you can see the N64 version has it's unique items, but I think the Dreamcast's Nightmare mode is better than the item randomizer, and that the Ex Files, while neat, are something you can just read online.
The other qualities are things you need to decide yourself, but the choice is probably between the Dreamcast and N64 versions.
Also, don't be afraid to play a few different versions. After you get any good at them you can really speed through them. In RE without even trying that hard I was... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Are there depressing retro games about nihilism, absurdism and existentialism like Lars von Trier's Melancholia? NES,SNES,PS1,N64,Dreamcast,Sega,Gameboy(Color)?
I must think of all Final Fantasy titles, even the modern ones, mainly JRPGs. Mostly Final Fantasy VI - Kefka >Life… Dreams… Hope…Where do they come from? And where do they go…? Such meaningless things… I’ll destroy them all!
Anybody played this? I have the emulated version and I think its a pretty badass game. It would be cool if Konami made a remake of this game. Also does anybody here own a physical copy? just curious since copies of this game are rare.
Miss? I play em all the time but I'm pissed my ps2 disc tray motor is fucking up. Gotta hold it out while I put the next disc in while it desperately tries to snap my ps1 X Files disc. Buying a slim from a buddy for $20 so I'm excited to excise this paranoia for good.
I should really pick one of those up, just for its history.
Gizmondo is Windows CE, NGage is Symbian and if you want the trifecta with a Palm device it's pic related - Tapwave Zodiac.
Mobile devices have seen enormous progress in the last decade so all of the above are shit devices by reasonable standards. Screens are shit. Batteries are shit. Resistive touch screens are shit. Just emulate all three platforms on your Android game device.
The libraries are all worth looking at, though. They have a certain flavor that isn't /vr/ related but... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I guess for the most seamless transition you could try JRPGs with CRPG elements like SaGa Frontier, it features a free scenario system where you can travel the world talking to people and whatnot from the get-go. I personally didn't like it and found it a bit too free but I encourage you to try it and see how it feels to you.
If that's a little overwhelming for you then try Legend of Mana, that game is far more JRPG friendly and only has a few elements similar to CRPGs. You have complete control... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
