Why did The Last Revelation have such a polarizing reception critically? Tons of critical reviews panned or wrote it off, yet among Tomb Raider fans it's considered one of the highlights of the series.
Dont remember a single bad review.
As for me the best in the series, I still remember the pyramids, scorpions (large ones) underwater level, planets you had to pull with skeletons running around.
I just realised I need to replay all games because I barelly remember them and with TR always being a bit otherwordly when it comes to the mood of the game, there is no alternative to those games.
>The Last Revelation have such a polarizing reception critically?
I don't remember any negative reviews on the game at the time. It was being marketed and reviewed as being the very last game in the series, though. I wish it had been.
Then Chronicles came out and that was the point I lost interest in Tomb Raider at all. I'm sure that game was the one more hated.
Fans that want more of the formula vs. average players that were tired of the formula. Not that hard to explain. Even for TR3 I remember reviews complaining that the engine hadn't updated significantly enough and it was mostly a game for diehards.
Why do I hear people complain about retro game prices, when compared to new prices factoring inflation they're pretty cheap.
So is paying $20 to $80 dollars for a quality game really bad or is it just poorfags complaining?
There's quite a few games that are common that cost far too much. Earthbound, Final Fantasy 3 (US), and Chrono Trigger are extremely common games, but the demand for them causes their prices to inflate annually.
Most retro games are pretty cheap though.
Inflation doesn't apply on a used item. Of I bought a regular-ass game for $89.99 in 1985, used it for thirty years, and tried to sell it for $120, it wouldnt sell based on price and inflation alone.
What the fuck is that little thing? It looks so dumb. This game has terrible space ship designs.
How does that little fin thing even make sense in terms of physics?
1) How do you land that thing?
2) How'd they even build it? How is that little thing on the bottom supposed to support the entire weight of the space ship?
i really like the ships in this game no homo
Variable geometrey winglet
Utilized for atmospheric manuevers. Due to battle damage it is partially stuck in it's exposed position, otherwise it would be fully retracted for battle on the moon.
If you want to see truely retarded ship designs, pic up any Euro/US shmup.
I will beat this game, I know I will
'Cuz I'm the king of wishful thinking
What are your opinions on Simon's Quest Revamped?
I'm primarily a shooterfag/shmupfag, but I've had my eye on RPGs for a while and am really curious about them.
I wanna expand my horizons and try some new stuff, but since I've mainly played bangshooty games I'm not sure what the best way to ease in would be.
Outside of the obvious answer of "action RPGs", can you suggest any RPGs with neat battle systems?
I started up Legend of Legaia and it seems pretty fun. I like punching the monsters.
In retro games. Triace is your answer to different battle systems. Valkyrie Profile and Star Ocean have interesting battle systems. One is made of having to think the order in which you will attack and what attacks you will use to break through some enemies defenses, especially since a lot of enemies can one shot you in this game unless you take them out early or have specific equipment to deal with them. The other is very much "live action" in terms of going to the second screen to do battle, but once you are there you control your character as an action rpg of sorts.

Decided to play another X-Men Genesis game since X-Men 2 was so fuckin fun.
Why is this game so subpar? Cyclops aim stance and random button lag is actually giving me migraines...Does it get better? The music is good though...
What are some good Sega Saturn sports games?
I like NBA Jam: Tournamnt Edition, Sega Rally Championship, Fire Pro Wrestling S: 6 Man Scramble, WWF Wrestlemania: The Arcade Game, and WWF: In Your House for sports games on the Saturn.
I used to enjoy a lot of sports games but there are few I want on the system.
Im looking for a Genesis, but i know shit about thge system so i just want to ask for some advice.
How much is pic related worth? is that a model 1 or 2 Genesis?
Still the best wario game
The controls, the setting, the music, the retro feel...
Can we all admit that this game is perfect?
Hey /vr/, I found a Game Gear with Sonic 2 at Goodwill for $9 today and picked it up because I didn't have one.
It seems to work fine, but I notice it's extremely quiet. I can barely hear it at full volume. Is this part of the capacitor issue I hear so much about? Can it be fixed by someone without a ton of technical knowledge? I mean, it's playable, I can hear it reasonably well with headphones, but I wouldn't mind having it fixed.
Also, what games would you recommend? I notice games for this thing are pretty cheap, which I'm quite happy about.
Minimally, the audio caps need to be replaced. You should probably replace them all. I'd say its a medium difficulty soldering job as far as retro system work goes. If you have a friend that knows what they're doing then beg a favour of them. It's $7-8 for the cap set from console5, a little cheaper on ebay.
I picked a couple up too. One of them I can't get anything other than scrolling lines on the screen and the sound is faint. The other has screen lines which clear up after a couple of minutes powered on but the sound is completely dead.
I'm going to recap this second one and maybe use the first for spares unless it could benefit from the same treatment. I also got a TV tuner but can't seem to get it to accept a composite signal. Do these need recapping too or is it just dead?
Pic is games I have. Any dead wood or notable exceptions I should pick up?
I am going to buy a Super Famicom. A friend had one when I was younger and I was fascinated with it, so it has been like a lifelong desire. I'm wondering, is there any way to play an SNES game on the Super Famicom? You know, like if I want to play A Link to the Past or a game with dialogue so that I may understand it.
How do you feel about All Stars? Better or worse than the originals? Which would you rather play?
I prefer the All Stars version of 2 and 3, but the originals for the other two games.
Also, they should have kept the sound effects the same, or at least just the fireball and jump sounds, they don't carry the same weight in the SNES games.
Sup /vr/, I want to buy pic related, but want to know if they come with batteries for saving in the cart. Can you share your experiences with them, do they last long before shitting out and not saving?
I turn on cheats when I play just about any game made before 1995
>What's the point of scores? I don't care about my score.
Just got a MAME setup with a complete romset. I've played all the obvious ones and I wanna check out some new ones, name your favorites.
I recall years ago when some games worked better on 1.6 than 1.7 and viceversa,now we have version 2.3,this version is truly the best or im better installing older versions?
PD: sorry for my english.
use the latest one. i think audio is worse in current versions because the devs dont care about it much and dont test it but the rest is improved. alternatively mupen is on the same level of quality so try that too.
I have been playing Super Mario 64 and TLoZ: Ocarina of time on the 2.3 version with a program called 3D Analyzer and works perfectly.
Psx games with a fucking good OST ?
How about one of those threads for how you imagined sprites and models?
Pic related is Captain Syrup, fyi.
is the SNES version of SimCity the best version?
How come a lot of Japanese retro games are fully in English?
The real question is, why is Ristar so angry on the western version?
Post the worst ports of classic games you know of.
Here's two examples
Ghosts n Goblins on NES
Castlevania on Amiga
How good are you at Tetris?
ITT: Old Lego games
pic related is my favorite and also one of my first games
It sucks there never was a true LEGO Jump'n'Run game, all we got these days are pay-to-play MMORPGs and mediocre LSW games for several licenses.
Only had the GBC version which I liked a lot because of the track builder.
But the console versions seem to be inferior to Lego Racers, even though both are kind of different games (one being a party racer, the other more about... stunts??).
LR had more variety, though, and was lots of fun. Could you even build your own car or racer in LSR?

Which method do you usually use when you're in the mood for some Gameboy?
I am about to start playing through the pic related series, before I start I wanted to ask what the best version of Ghosts and Goblins is?
Here's my example.
In oracle of Ages, the block puzzles where you step on squares to change the colors can still be completed if you fuck up and have a square left. You can place the Cane of Samoria block on the last square and for whatever reason it will still count. Never seen this on any guide nor heard anyone speak of it, but it's definitely a thing.
Oh come on guys, I want to be amazed. Here is another example. On Boomer Kuwanger's stage in Mega Man X1, you can actually wall climb on these spikes with no repercussions even though every other set of spikes in the room kills you. Weird stuff.
If I remember well, there's one puzzle in particular where you must use the Cane of Somaria in order to pass it. I believe it's in that extra dungeon you get access after you beat both games.
What's your favorite CRPG, /vr/? I'm tempted to say mine is Fallout 1, but I'd have to think on that for a while.
Fallout is a top tier game. I knew I had to play from the second I saw preview screenshots. Even as a dumb kid I could tell that was going to be next level shit. And it was.
But Baldur's Gate is my favorite, because of the variety and replayability. There are just so many ways to play the game; there's really nothing like it. I still play it and have yet to get bored after hundreds of hours.
