>>3372015 This. If you want a decent non-VN retro porn game learn to emulate PC-98 or I guess play Rance. I dunno if Americans have ever made a good porn game. They all feel like even the devs jerked off after 35-45 minutes of their work day and half-assed the rest.
We all know and love the arcade games of Sega, Namco, Taito, etc. Both their big hits and more obscure titles. But what about games from companies you don't hear about often?
Van Van Car is a simple but fun maze game from a company called Sanritsu. You drive around a maze popping balloons and avoiding enemy cars, which you can jump over or shoot if you get the "E" balloon. Picking up the striped balloon when it appears will automatically clear the stage, and award a bonus.
>In the end, despite having perhaps the most powerful hardware and arguably the best graphics in the industry plus a game that drew rave reviews, Bouncer was never released. So what happened? In a February, 1985 Replay article Ron Clark claimed that the game failed because the graphics were too good. So good that many mistakenly believed the game was a laserdisc game at a time when laserdisc games were getting an increasingly bad reputation for reliability (the... Comment too long.

I remember using the internet browser in the wee hours of the morning. I went on chat rooms, looked up cheat codes, and I remember looking up .wav files of farts online. But one memory that stuck out for me was I stumbled across an H-site. I don't remember what it was called, it was similar to The Citadel of Lost Love or something. The disclaimer at the entry page was real unique. If I could recall the page went along the lines of a mysterious stranger in a trenchcoat greeting you. He tells you of secret place to where only those of 18 or above were allowed. I was so... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Apart from the cutscenes, it's a really ugly-looking game. Also, the levels are flat and boring. There's a level in one of the Redneck Rampage games that takes place in an Old West town. That one level is more fun than all of Outlaws.
The Dreamcast uses special GD-ROMs instead of CD-ROMs for its games. GD holds more than CD (but less than DVD). Games that take up the whole GD need to have their cutscenes, music, or sound effects cut or degraded to fit CD-Rs.
How bad is the downsampling? Will cutscenes look Sega-CD quality and music sound SNES quality?
Shenmue is the one that people still talk the most. But around early 2000s until the mid-2000s it was a problem for a bunch of games, some wouldn't work right or would have graphical problems, but things changed and the isos got better even just using 700mbs cds. Shenmue needs 900mb cds.
>>3370186 So I started playing the original rouge on a mac plus emulator.
It's fun so far, but holy fuck are the controls weird.
I skimmed over the readme file, but I forgot what the key combos for quit session and close game were. I basically just mashed buttons until it quit, since I can't force quit the emulator without banaging the disk images.
It was like the Vim of video games.
Still though it was fun.
My only prior experience with rougelikes was the Pokemon Mystery Dungeon... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>what is your favorite Ultima game? Ultima IV: Quest of the Avatar
Thinking about that game it is 30 years old now and I think there still aren't another RPGs that does NOT feature a villain for you to fight but only resolves around bettering yourself. Things like this alone makes me consider answering yes to OP's question.
>>3368531 > Ultima I > or Questron ? it wasn't brilliant, just different You might say Ultima III was brilliant because of how many lights Japan shone upon it. or if you are using "sublime" to mean inspiring then yeah Ultima III and Wizardry I inspired an entire industry over there.
Shen Long no Nazo is really fun if you Game Genie to have infinite health. The constantly depleting health mechanic due to Goku's hunger is simply a load of shit and literally ruins an otherwise fun, early Famicom game.

The problem with that is one, I think they'd have no repatent a lot of the hardware used for the NES, and two, getting a manufacturer to mass produce a bunch of vintage circuit boards and connectors that don't even exist anymore would probably be pretty costly. I think anyway, could be wrong
But I'd totally be into it. Most of my old consoles have yellowed or broken down in someway. Would love to have new ones
What are games similar to similar to SNES Starfox? Like flat-polygonal rail shooters? Or just rail shooters? inb4: Space Harrier, Afterburner, Galaxy Force I know Starfox is nothing special but it was the first game I got introduced to.
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 OC! Get... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>3360478 It seemed more like he was just asking because he didn't get it but I'm not sure what the complaint is. That's just the way the game is. Wisdom is an important skill necessary to cast advanced spells, that's why all the magic heroes other than Necromancers start with it. Expert Air Magic just represents your proficiency in that sphere. Even if you get shafted and never pick up Wisdom being able to mass cast low level spells is extremely useful so it's not like it was wasted.

>>3377475 The Atari 2600 set the precedent of console games having different modes. 2nd gen consoles made things a bit "easier" by allowing you to select your game mode via key pad rather than flipping a switch on the actual console. This and the whole advent of the personal computer I guess (i.e. trying to replicate a keyboard).
I'm not familiar with any Coleco games that actually used all of the buttons (personally I just select the game mode I want, unlug the controller, and promptly plug in a genesis... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
