So the wireless SNES Retro Receiver is finally out. Any reviews?
For those of you who don't know it's a plug in adapter for the SNES and SFC that allows you to use PS4, Wii U Pro, Wii and almost any blue tooth controller on your SNES
Here's a link.
What are some good old fashion rpg games where I have to write maps and write down things. Kinda specific I know, but I want to try something a bit different.
Hey guys, just picked this up at the flea market. What do you think of it?
My friends and I were playing it and my one friend said he was going to jump far-
And we all thought he was going to say fart! And so we laughed and laughed! It's was so funny!
And then my other friend accidentally hit the 'no' continue button instead of 'yes'. Then we stopped playing.
Joe & Mac is pretty cool.
Played the arcade game and had the NES version, which was actually quite good, all things considered. It has one of the best parallax effects I've seen on NES games.
Joe & Mac 2 is also good, less talked about than the original. I think it did co-op better than the first one.

Being able to select the stage you wanna play makes the game very comfy.
God tier retro Formula 1 games?
Does an adapter exist for using a sega saturn pad on a playstation? I specifically want to use the saturn 3D controller.
How did Konami get away with it?
Actually eating dogs was always seen as pretty desperate/shameful by the Japanese, who admittedly have no problem eating whales and adorable racoons.
You're probably thinking of Koreans and Chinese and basically every other shitty southeast asian country.
Holy shit this game is awesome, how did I never know about this?
I'd like it more if I could actually see shit. It's a technical marvel for '96, but fuck me getting shot at by two pixels that I mistook for a teammate is not fun.
Also the cutscenes are cornball fests.
Can anybody help me out? I'm trying to get my game on with the DOS mode on my Win98SE PC, but whenever I load a DOS game it loads up and immediately goes to a black screen. I've tried it with Might and Magic 3 and with the 1989 freeware port of Mille Bornes. This happens whether game runs in DOS prompt through Win98 or if it reboots to DOS mode. The video feed isn't being ended though, the monitor light still stays green and no sleep mode occurs. Anybody know why this would be happening?
If you're launching from inside of windows, could be the case. Some DOS games didn't like to play nice with the video and sound cards if windows was running at the time. May need to boot right in to dos.
But my real suggestion is to just run the game in DOSBox on a modern PC. 99% of the time it just werks. No tweaking or fucking around.
Sorry if this has been asked before, but anyway.
How could Nintendo give a green light to a console which literally gave a headache to the players? Did they even conduct product testing? I guess 9 out of 10 people would say Virtual Boy was simply hard on the eyes, not to mention red/black palette simply looked like atrocious.
Does anyone on /vr/ follow the Atari Jaguar? It might've been a commerical flop but it seems to have a huge homebrew following these days, and a flexible, unofficial API that homebrewers use to make games. Not sure how I haven't seen this until now, it even has a European festival.
YOU GOT BOOST POWER!
Opinions on postal 1?
Let's play a game /vr/. Post a heavily zoomed in and cropped screen shot of a game. Answer if you can identify a game. I'll start off by posting a few.
I have an nes emulator for wii... and it scrolls really bad and is blocky... most know what this means and why this happens, but does anyone know how to fix it or is there just no good nes emulator for wii?
it runs perfectly but it is blocky when it scrolls.. it has a filter and when that's turned on it seems to smooth it out nice enough and from far away you can't notice it's filtered... but without the filter you can notice it's blocky
What neat little doodads do you have for your systems? Like the Super Gameboy or the 32X. I just got these little speakers for my Genesis. They work okay, but the driver is a bit worn. Does anyone know what kind of drivers these use? I'm looking to fix it.
Pick up Bill and Ted for NES, and goddamn if it's not a pretty cozy game. Basically wander an interesting landscape, looking for people and items. Nothing fancy or tricky; perfect for a hangover day. But it looks like it reviews poorly; what am I missing?
How did people develop NES games back in the day? Did they use DOS or something? Fuck, maybe even an Apple II?
Sometimes they literally used pen and paper. Sprites and things like that were translated into assembly code by hand or through crude implementations using PCs of the time. Then the game was either burned onto an EEPROM and used in a special socketed cartridge, or it was sent directly to the NES CPU through a custom rig they built. Every company did it differently.
Any Cybernator/Assault Suits Valken fans out there?
IMO it is an amazing game in everything from story and music to graphics and gameplay. Rarely if ever mentioned despite this
I remember being blown away by just about every aspect of the game. The music in particular got me really pumped.
I also discovered the napalm weapon on my own, since the trick to unlock it is identical to the trick to get all weapons in Target Earth/Assault Suit Leynos.
PC games with local multiplayer thread? So far I downloaded C-Dogs and Liero.
Never really see this game mentioned on /vr/ Probably one of the better games on the ps1.
Beat retro game or console finds at a flea market or online
Today I found a retro shop that I didn't know about that actually HAD good SNES games like Super Metroid and Kirby Super Star. I ended up buying too much and now I am scared I got ripped off.
The prices online don't seem too different.
>I am scared I got ripped off
>The prices online don't seem too different.
Yep, sounds like you got hosed. Keep feeding the retro inflation beast buddy. Someday you'll learn about emulation.
So the advertisement for it mentions playing the classics in "HD".
Is there any trickery going on in this little machine that's helping translated these made for CRT images onto HD TV's?
Or is it just straight up emulation?
anyone like the old Tony Hawk's Pro Skater games?
PlayStation 2 is apparently not old enough to be allowed on /vr/ yet so let's limit this to THPS1 and THPS2.
pleasedisregard the horrible PS1 versions of THPS3 and 4. (they are fucking ATROCIOUS. you can't even do an indy grab on your create-a-skater.)
anyway, do you think THPS1 or THPS2 is better?
personally I like both.
THPS2 obviously has the big addition of the manual, which changes things up a lot, as well as more tricks, create-a-skater, better soundtrack (full songs instead...

Why are opinions on this game so divisive? You'll either get people calling this one of the best jrpgs ever or people calling it absolute shit that paled in comparison to Trigger.
Most, if not all criticisms seem to stem from people who are angry at Cross not only because it wasn't related "enough" to Trigger, but also because it "shat" all over its story by killing the main characters and making you play through the perspective of some characters who think Crono and company were actually wrong.
These people obviously pretend that the entire setting, history and antagonist factions of the game are not reskins/continuations of Trigger plot points, and they seem...

I think most opinions is that it's a mediocre JRPG with pretty good music and pretty pre-rendered backgrounds.
I haven't seen people saying it's an absolute shit, or anyone calling it one of the best ever. From overrated PS1-era JRPGs, the overrated unfinished pos is Xenogears
just kidding, I love that one, but holy shit that disc 2.
Not him, but what's wrong with a good ol' manual thread?
What was THE independent gaming mag back in the day?
It felt like all gaming mags in the 90s were based.
The worst of the worst of retro vidya game cover art, the thread
That wasn't even the actual box art. I mean, the actual art isn't much better, but it's not that hideous.
>"PS1 may have been the better console, but Saturn had the best 2D"
What are these 2D games I keep hearing about?
Don't fall for this delicious may may, PS1 was better able to render 2D due to having a true 32bit bus architecture. The Saturns bus was 16bit, requiring twice as many word transfers which limited the framerate.
Which ones you wish you got? I got inspires by "the World according to SF"
it's interesting how good SNK was at the whole global diversity thing.
For a long time their biggest hero was pure American. None of this 3/4th Japanese crap and they even had the whole universe bet set in Southtown USA before going international with KOF.
And yeah they got the usual YOUNG JAPANESE HERO thing going now there's still a shit town of Americans, a shit town of Hispanics, plenty of Koreans, a Canadian or two, some Italians etc
