There is always that one game that you love that gets a remake/reboot in the future and that offers a new experience.
I've been thinking about replaying the original DQ monsters on my GBC but I have also downloaded the 3ds version with an english patch, I havent finished either (as a kid I wasnt able to finish the original) but I'm loving the 3ds version and I personally think it adds a lot to the game.
When everything is said and done, what are some remakes that you found superior to their retro counterpart?
What exactly is the difference between the N64 Everdrive v2.5 and v3? Is the v3 really worth paying that much more?
ED64 Plus (chinese clone) - $65 shipped, can find it from USA sellers on ebay. Cheapest option. Probably goes even cheaper on taobao etc. Downside is that it's a bit of a pain in the ass to get it working wrt getting all the necessary files. Chinese driver CD was only readable by one of my two computers (vol. label was in moon runes), had to format my SD card a couple different ways before I found one that worked (couldn't get gparted FAT16 or FAT32 to work, mac "FAT" format finally did the...

Are there any that you find interesting or simply decent? Mine is the Mega Duck.
Supposedly came out 4 years after the Game Boy, while it doesn't have the same quality games, the clone games aren't as bad as you might expect on other systems.
Just a pic I found.
Is there anyone who has -or had a Super A'Can? How is it?
Din... With her strong flaming arms, cultivated the land and created the red earth.
Nayru... Poured out her wisdom onto the land, and gave it the spirit of law.
Farore... With her rich soul, produced all life forms who would uphold the law.
The three great goddesses, their labors completed, departed for the heavens.
Is the Pandora even worth considering?
What games are worth playing on this thing?
So i bought a S-video cable for my N64, the cable is not like pic related, mine doesn't have a yellow composite, just the black one. However, the image improves a lot that it looks bad in my tv. I'm using a flat Sharp tv that looks amazing with retro games. I tried plugging my N64 to one of my HDTV's and while it looks good (i can see scan lines) it doesn't look like the 480i i was told i would see. So what's the best setup for an N64?
Very few N64 games run in 480i. The vast majority are 240p.
If your TV is shit, it might interpret that 240p signal as a 480i signal and try to deinterlace it, causing ugly artifacts and lag. You don't want that.
>i can see scan lines
There are HDTVs that do that out of the box?
>it doesn't look like the 480i i was told i would see.
Some N64 games are 480i, some are 240p, and some switch back and forth depending on the what portion of the game you're playing; Pokemon Stadium 2 is a good example of this; 480i for a lot of the menus, 240p for battles and the like.

Why /vr/ is so hipster?
Return of Double Dragon or Streets of Rage 2
Which is better?
Specifically want to play some old RPGs like FF7, 8, 9, Tactics, Valkyrie Profile and such.
Picked this baby up for 5 dollars at my local game store.
I've seen it sit on the shelf for like 3 months so I finally got it.
Played two levels and turned it right the fuck off.
Can anyone please help me figure out where this music is from? It would really help me out!
All I know is the developer is Capcom.
Why is it so much better than Douk and Shadow Warrior?
2bh it's not. I like it more too but that's just personal preference. Imho the three games are literally tied and anyone could prefer another one for different reasons.
But fuck my ass bloods weapons feel too fucking satisfying.
It's better in several ways like enemy/weapon balance, weapon use, some enemies AI like the cultists, etc
But DN3D and SW also have their strengths, in other aspects. I don't think people realize how good and innovative DN3D's level design really was. I know Blood's development started long before Duke was released, but when it did come out, they had time to learn from it still for their own game.
>N64 emulation still sucks
>Horrible awkward layout that nobody misses
What is the point of this thing? And why are 8bitdo charging $50 for it?
Project64 isn't emulation, that's just reading the rom files, calling up a few api's, and guessing how the game runs. At no point does it actually emulate the N64 architecture, and it's riddled with accuracy errors as a result. Not forgetting the creator recently stuffed fucking malware into the last update.
Post news coverage/stories that relates to old vidya shit.
Holy crap, they were upset the SNES cost more then NES.
Do any of you faggots remember this gem? It's underrated as fuck.
Fucking Pat looks like Sai Baba.
Also what he's saying is right, people in their mid 20s without family and a job will spend money on shit like old vidya, and in their cases, 6th gen is already par of their childhood nostalgia.
If that's what you wanted to point out, OP (because the embedding here doesn't let you post videos at specific time, but I noticed the 24m on the link), then let me tell you /vr/ has a rule. /vr/ is not "your nostalgia is welcome here", /vr/ is 1999 and before.
>/vr/ is 1999 and before.
No problem. You can talk about the PS1 version of FIFA 2005 on /vr/. Good luck getting anyone interested on it.
Did you e-mail hiro already? Stop wasting space on here, the rules won't change.
Are there any Thanksgiving or turkey themed /vr/ games?
It's Pink Goes to Hollywood on SNES. However, the Genesis version is better imo. That level in particular has a strange forlorn and depressing music track on the Genesis, almost like strangling a suicidal turkey. Snes music doesn't even compare.
Let's talk about the very last era of gaming /vr/ covers. Talk about games released in 1999 or after (if they're released on /vr/ hardware, i.e Majora's Mask on N64 or Castlevania Chronicles on PS1).
Whenever I think about 1999, I remember seeing Evangelion on the N64 at a local store who had imports (owner was japanese). The graphics and overall presentation of the game shocked me. I never bought it because it was insanely expensive for me though.
Highly sophisticated PS1 game, conceptually, technically and in execution, one of Namco's peaks during 5th gen.
Winning Eleven 2002 was frequently roster-hacked and bootlegged in South America... and turns out, in Indonesia as well. Back in the day some of the bootlegs featured songs by a famous local singer and others even have the roster of local leagues. Pic related.
(Dunno if this is the right thread...)

Is this the best emulation box for the price ?
Are there any NES or Genesis emulators on par with Higan's SNES emulation? I'm kind of particular about cycle accuracy. Everyone says to use Nestopia and Kega Fusion but I'm not sure. Also, what would be my best bet for cycle accurate PlayStation emulation? Thanks.
For Playstation, I'm quite sure Xebra is as accurate as it gets. It's also regularly updated and the interface is a lot more friendly than it was when I found it years ago.
It's an amazing emulator but everyone seems to prefer epsxe instead because they like to look at their 90's polygon games in crisp 1080p.
There is so much weird stuff on MyAbandonware. I highly recommend browsing through. When I was a kid I thought I'd played all the adventure games out there, but it was a drop in the ocean.
90s games that use digitized photos of people have aged very strangely
What did he mean by this?
Opinion on this? Any cheaper HDMI consoles?
Haven't seen anyone talk about this. On Steam and GOG at the moment. I play a LOT of FPS and I had never heard about this until I found it while randomly browsing Steam.
Uses an in-house engine that seems to be on par with Unreal Engine 1. The game is set in your standard futuristic dystopia but has Christian themes which makes it unique. You have all your typical FPS weapons but you also have "angel powers" to spice things up.
If you like late 90's / early 00's FPS, this one is a must-play I think. I will warn I played on the hardest setting...

I was able to run the Steam version in Win7 with full 1920x1080. Dunno about Windows 8 or 10. The Steam and GOG version are the same and have been patched to work on newer systems though. There is a nglide_config.exe in the game directory that lets you set higher resolutions.
There's also a Direct3D executable, but text in the game looked better using nglide for me.
>Dunno about Windows 8
Tried it on 8 and it's working flawless.
I really loved the game back when it was released but yikes, replaying it now and it definitely hasn't aged well.
I always thought that stuff like blowing up someone or something and ending up with three heads, two ribcages and something that's just some mesh with a random texture was because I only played it unpatched but turns out this still happens in the Steam version.
I also never noticed that the soldiers have their face mirrored on the back...

I've made an updated 2016 version of this 5th generation hardware reference guide.
If you have any feedback post it here. If required, updated versions of the image will be posted in this thread.
Please note that the chart isn't meant to exhaustively cover every aspect of the consoles' hardware. Its purpose is to give people who don't know too much about the 5th gen hardware some rough idea what the consoles were capable of and their strengths/weaknesses.
I think it may seem that way because the Playstation was certainly the most well rounded/balanced hardware of that generation even if the Saturn and N64 had places they could excel in.
How do you say Ryo's name?
Guys, Age of Wonders is on sale now. I'm a heroes fag, but I've been looking for getting into this series. Are really old games like AOW1,2 and Shadow Magic any good nowadays, if you honestly put nostalgia factor aside? What should I start with? Will I'll be missing any lore if I start with AOW3?
The lore/story in AOW is pretty pitiful IIRC.
Start with AOW Shadow Magic for the best experience. It's very pretty and plays quite different compared to Heroes.
The first AOW's graphics has its own charm, though I think the gameplay is average at best.
AOW3 is not retro and I haven't played it yet, so no idea.
What are some comfy games for the following console:
Pic semi-relate, Gargoyle's quest is fun.
for the nes, the adventures of lolo
not a very well known title but it's a fun little puzzler with 3 entries. they're all good and the game has some great charm despite not being all that popular
