Previous thread >>3362164 This thread is for the spirited discussion of CRT displays - Televisions, monitors and projectors used for the playing of retro games!
>Try to keep it /vr/-related: Nothing past 5th gen(+Dreamcast). Slight OT might be okay if related to CRTs (E.G. 16:9 compatible models, flatscreens, etc.) Systems with backwards compatibility are also pretty safe territory, assuming you're focusing on the older games. PC CRTs are also a-ok. >Produce... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

Hello /vr/, what are your thoughts about the Wario Land series (including the spinoffs Wario: Master of Disguise & Wario World) Which one was excellent and mediocre for you? You think Nintendo will revive the franchise?

>>3387917 Never had one of those but our first ever computer game with a stack of copied disks from a family friend with loads of old DOS games. Jumpman, 3Demon, Spyhunter, Qbert, Zaxxon, were all standouts that I played them all to one degree or another. But Rouge.... Rouge was my jam. I would obsess over that game.
>>3387870 Although it says "Developed by Beam Software, Ltd", this likely only applies to the C64, Spectrum, and Amstrad versions. The Apple and PC ports appear to have been done by Sierra not in the least because the PC version has the CGA red/green/orange/blue palette which is a Sierra hallmark.
Timeline wise, 2 happens before 1, but 2's graphics and gameplay are a LOT better than 1. So playing 1 will be a significant downgrade from 2 in just about every way, so if that bothers you, start with 1.
Playing dragon warrior 7 for the first time, just got to the volcano city and i already feel it'll be a great ride. It's reminds me a bit of earthbound and also chrono trigger. The animation on the enemies is outstanding.
I played many others that didn't hook me lately (grandia, saga frontier 2, secret of mana)... so.. RPG thread i guess? Which other must play RPG games are out there?
>Buy a bunch of games from a seller on eBay >Some are repros >I know it's against the Terms of Service on eBay to sell counterfeit goods >I kind of want to fuck this guy over and get my money back on the repros
Should I do it? How do you even do stuff like that?
I don't even want the repros, they were just in small lots of other stuff I wanted.
Well you could open a case with ebay and see what happens, but if they did their due diligence and said they were repros, ebay may tell you to fuck off. If you want to make a habit of it, they'll start sanctioning your account like any other asshole who starts making a bunch of accusations of counterfeit stuff.
Were they clearly marked as repros or did they clearly look like repros in the listing? Did you bid the amount you bid because you thought they were legit games? If the answers are "no" and "yes" then definitely ask for a partial refund.
"Enduro" is a symbolic journey through life via the media of a race. The results are insignificant and what really counts is competing. Of particular importance are the lessons to be learned concerning one's self from the various encounters you experience along the way. There is no victor or loser in this test of endurance the only thing that really matters is that you make a commitment to begin the long and trying trek. This game is then dedicated to all of the "Life Riders" who have stated out on the solitary trip to find their own individual limits.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>3385831 This emulator, as far as I know, has been a dustbin relic for years now. It's probably been close to a decade since I even thought about it last. Most people use MAME or FB Alpha for Neo Geo emulation.
Does anyone know if NRX is still a thing? Is someone still developing this software?
I was hoping someone on /vr/ could help me remember a Famicom/NES game I played once as a kid. This was from one of those bootleg multicarts sold in foreign malls that often came with like 80-100 games, some of them actual games, but I'm not sure if the one I think of even exists widely. Mines was a cheap plastic red N64 controller that had an insertable cart in the back and plugged into the TV.
It was a little platformer with like maybe some canyon or desert levels you scaled up on. Your character was a small dude that was a ninja(?) and it reminded me of a Ninji from SMB2 but not quite. Shruikens or bombs may have been involded, and a power-up or something turned your character into a flashing rainbow color like a Starman from Mario, but it was more seizure-inducing. The music may have had an Arabian flavor to it.
At first I wracked my brain and came up with something with "Bomb" in the title. I looked up Mighty Bomb Jack but that wasn't it at all.
If what I'm describing to you sounds even remotely familiar to you then that'd be fantastic.
Sadly this thing didn't include something substantial like SMB or Mega Man, but it had a few goodies in there (Popeye, Circus Charlie and Ice Climber to name a few).
>>3385775 Hahaha holy shit yes thank you!!! That's the game right there.
I hated it so much as a kid but it left an impression on me. I can't believe I misremember the rainbow collectibles for the ninja avatar turning rainbow. The whole thing was surreal for the sake of it, like Tumblepop.
>>3385750 FDS is Famicom *Disk* System and it was created to make Famicom accept floppies. Floppies were cheaper for the same size of storage for some time, so games would be cheaper. Also, you could copy that floppy.
For the past fifteen-something years I've been trying to figure out the name of an obscure edutainment game. I played it in a computer lab as a kid, and though none of my classmates remember it anymore, I've searched high and low on the internet and only found a couple people who remembered it (but also didn't know which game it was).
IIRC the main game was some boring math questions or something. But after you had gotten so many questions right or something, you got to play a minigame, which was where the actual meat of the game was.
In the minigame... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>3385483 Are we seriously being elitist about modern ports of old games now?
It's not even a remake, it's a fucking port. Get the stick out of your ass. Unless you have a hardon for sketchy fan patches and shitty virtual machines, then the remastered edition is currently the best way to play the game on modern operating systems.
I've had this for a couple of years now, and this summer i've been craving pokemon and SMT, More specifically Revelations and Crystal, both of which don't seem to work on it, has anyone been able to get these to work? There were some fixes by mottzilla, but the revelations one never worked.
>>3385334 Director's Cut, vanilla drops auto-aim from the Jap version which makes some parts way more hard in a not fun way. DC Dual Shock's redone OST isn't quite as bad as some people say (there are actually a few tracks I like) but it's still inferior to the original and the addition of Dual Shock controls don't really add anything to the game. It's also the version on PSN in the U.S. so it's the easiest to get your hands on.
>>3385276 Not OP but that's not true, games like the Adventures of Little Ralph or Ufouria just to name a few are rare and I never hear people talk about them.
Anyway as far as hidden gems go, Willow on NES is a stellar title no one seems to discuss. It's a sweet action RPG by Capcom based on the '88 film by George Lucas and it really rivals games like TLOZ. It's surprisingly fair and balanced for an RPG made in the days of grinding. The game looks gorgeous and has a pretty nice soundtrack. Great combination... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
What makes you using cheat codes, Nintendo Power, strategy guides, Game Genie/Game Shark, and tip hotlines, etc. to beat a game as a kid more legitimate and noble than some kid nowadays using GameFAQs or save states to beat the same game? Using outside help to win and sharing that help was a core part of old school gaming culture, but why is it shameful now? I'm pretty sure you didn't beat the shit out of all the kids at the playground who shared tips with each other, right?
