i'm thinking about saying fuck it and actually trying a traditional jrpg for the first time, but i have no idea where to start. my only experience with anything resembling a jrpg is super mario rpg, and i haven't played the paper mario series or mario & luigi either, so it's incredibly limited.
i'd rather start with a retro game, preferably 16 bit. but where the fuck do i start? dragon quest series? final fantasy series? earthbound? or should i just say fuck it and play the simple mario rpg games?

>>2882443 no reason to try the genre other than the fact that i have never really given it a fair shot. like i said, the only jrpg game i've played to completion was super mario rpg. although now that i think about it, i did play pokemon red and gold as well.
also the games i usually play seem fairly irrelevant but my preferred genres are fps, platformers and survival horror. i don't even play many wrpgs unless they're a blend of genres like deus ex or system shock
>>2882265 Because it you weren't lucky enough for Link to wake up there, the Nightmares would have taken over and turned it into nightmare world. Which is presumably a fate worse than death, otherwise Link is the bad guy.
I have been in possession of this gold version game cartridge for about 15 years now. I traded some Pokemon cards for it. The reason why this is an interesting cart is because the sticker is upside down. >pic related I come to you guys at /vr/ to ask if this rare item is worth anything. Ebay sells normal gold version carts for about 20 dollars. I tried to research this to see if there was anyone else that had a similar game cartridge with an upside down label. I didn't find anything. The game has been tested and works and contains no... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

Hahaha No shit, the battery ran dry about 6 years ago, man. Same as every other.
Not sure if you're serious but it is most likely somebody did that themselves. How on earth is a cartridge going to be processed upside down, then pass quality control? At any rate, in terms of worth, probably about the same as a regular Gold cart, give or take a couple of dollars.

>>2882162 >Why pink hair? To provide the player with a strong visual anchor. There's a lot of greens and browns in the game, with brown hair as seen in the official artwork the player character would blend in too much. With pink hair it is easily trackable even with peripheral vision.
Recently bought an adapter that allows my pc to hook up to my crt tv, but when I plug everything in it just comes up with a green screen. I just wanna emulate some of the older games that I missed. Is the tv incompatible or am I just doing it wrong?
Sounds like your computer trying to detect the monitor's specs and getting confused that it's a converter box. Did you set your resolution as low as it would go at a 4:3 aspect ratio before you plugged it in to the converter?
There may also be some dip switches you have to play with to get the converter to output properly.
>>2881707 Yeah I messed around with all the switches, changed the resolution and was following a guide online, can't remember the guide I used now though. But if it isn't obvious I'm not too familiar with the technicals of Crt and building arcade machines. Regardless I should've mentioned I'm using a Sanyo. Not sure if that changes anything but hopefully it can narrow things down.
>>2881681 I bought a device that looks exactly like that, but it's black. It does analog > VGA, but not the other way around. The VGA input is only for post processing, like forcing an aspect ratio, back to VGA. It doesn't work with 240p systems either.
Maybe yours is different, but read the instructions or store page and make sure that it outputs analog.
>What is your favorite of the 3 Insomniac releases?
>What is your favorite level in each game?
>What is your favorite world?
>Favorite music in each game
I only played 1 and 2 myself, but I loved them. My favorite music is probably Toasty from 1, and Autumn Plains for 2. For World, Dream Weaver's in 1, Autumn Plains for 2. Fav level in 1 is Treetops, 2 is Skelos Badlands
I think they're all great desu. I ended up playing them in reverse order over the years and loved all three. My only criticism would be that the camera in the first game isn't quite as maneuvreable as the other games which slows things down a bit.
Megami Tensei II Kick Master Monster in My Pocket Monster Party Super Spy Hunter Nes Batman games Werewolf the last revenge Robocop 3 Astyanax Castlevania 1 & 3 (try the JP version of 3) Double Dragon series Magic of Scherezade Faxanadu 8 Eyes Cowboy Kid Fire N' Ice Getsufu maden Mad City Majou Densetsu 2 Punch out Ninja Crusaders Ninja Gaiden series Splatter House - Wanpaku Graffiti Silver Surfer Shatterhand Trojan.
Kid nikki/Kaiketsu Yanchamaru 1 and 2 are alright but maybe don't stand out among the many other action/platformers on the system, however the 3rd game is actually amazing, was never released outside of Japan though, it was a late Famicom game from 1993.
King's Field General? Why not. We have a dozen other useless generals clogging up the board. May as well try a different subject for a change of pace.
>What is King's Field? KF is a medieval first-person RPG series by FromSoftware. The series is known for its hellish difficulty, complex dungeons and murky atmosphere, which players either love or hate.

The plots seem fairly independent from one another, so I guess it doesn't really matter where you start with the series. The gameplay elements are also generally the same, including the selection of spells and equipment available. You're more or less just exploring different environments in each game.
KF1 (Japan) is more of a dungeon crawler, and comparatively short. KF2 (KF1 outside of Japan) takes place in an isolated island region. You spend a fair bit of time exploring underground labyrinths,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2881345 I remember playing UT with up to 15 other assholes, then one day I read in a gaming magazine that a new console (I think it was the 360, I'm not sure to be honest) would allow up to 8 players games, it took me years to understand why were they so excited.
Anyway, my favorite game mode was domination and my favorite map was deck16, however I played a lot of facing worlds because my friends loved capture the flag and I didn't really care. My favorite weapon was the Railgun.
Who would have known that a common Lion King cartridge would end up being one of the most useful ways of determining what chips your SNES has without having to open it...
>In Options, press B, A, R, R, Y (for programmer Barry Green) to to access the debug menu. This menu deserves special mention for being one of the very few that will easily tell you the CPU, PPU1 and PPU2 versions of your SNES console, which is useful info for testing hardware and software compatibility.
And just in case... When typing the R in "B-A-R-R-Y"... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

Bullshit. The person who wrote that clearly doesn't know shit about the SNES.
The differences between revisions hardly affect games at all. There is a DMA crashing bug on some of the earliest Japanese systems, that's it.
The 1chip and SNES mini systems apparently don't put as much emphasis on mid scanline changes, but even those things and any other difference you could name will have fuck... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
