This board is for the discussion of classic, or "retro" games. Retro gaming means consoles, computer games, arcade games (including pinball) and any other forms of video games on platforms launched in 1999 and earlier. With the release of the 8th generation of consoles, the Sega Dreamcast will now be considered "retro", though the remainder of the sixth generation (Xbox, PS2, GameCube) will not.

If this does very well, Grezzo might remake the Oracle of Ages & Seasons with the new engine and aesthetic. This game looks amazing, so I'm buying it to support the developers.

They developed OoT3D and MM3D too, so it's completely possible.

I remember Neokamek was being bitched at by that Jango guy (one of them was accusing him of riding Big Eli King's coattails with his Reiko), but then again Jango always had a bone to pick with someone. Compared to some of the other contributors, Kamek was a very mild individual, and I commend him for making a full fledged character out of a character with 3 or so frames of animation.

The Warner Bros characters, you mean like Opera Elmer? A guy called "Derrick D. Rowell" was responsible for him and other cartoon characters, and his characters were derided for being too powerful. I'm sure Jango mocked his Popeye for having a black palette and saying that the intro where the characters were dancing to some groovy 70's music was raycis. I'm pretty sure DDR is black himself.

DDR is definitely black. No white person I know cares about Sho Nuff.

It's a shame most of the MUGEN creators didn't know how to deal with drama / or started drama for the dumbest reasons.

I think the only creator that is still active and is absolutely based is The_None. His shit is consistently creative and fun.

Pic related, the tank from Chrono Trigger as a character.

>master quest was neat i never really played it tho
It's got a very straightforward design to the dungeons I've played, often times seemingly easier than the ones in the main game. However the mirror image flip of the world is disorienting for me having memorized the game beforehand, and the enemies dishing out double damage makes the beginning challenging.
I got stuck on the water temple like 2 years ago and restarted so I can have a fresh take on the experience again.
>>just something new that i wasn't aware of before
Time Stalkers is a neat roguelite for DC, Toy Commander is good I hear, Shadowman, Chickenrun is a hiddengem, E.G.G.,
do you want anything for another console?

it sounds like a good playthrough, reinvigorates a classic.
my childhood best friend had master quest for the gamecube, but i only played it at his house, i never played it myself, which is what i mean by never really played it

yeah i'd be down for something for 5th gen, started played these dreamcast shmups again but honestly they look like shit. i had a ton of games on my other computer but the charger died and i don't have many games on the computer i'm on. was delving into the ps1 library, started to play xenogears.
E.G.G. seems cool though

>chest is a shapeless blob
>cape is stiff and doesn't look like cloth at all
>lack of consistency, some parts have outlines but others don't?
overall it needs a lot of work but you're definitely on the right track. i suggest you take a look at sprites from games like street fighter and mark of the wolves since you seem to be going for a similar style to them. pixel art is just a medium so you can grind your fundies like perspective and anatomy any way you want to as long as you're making sure you do it consciously. honestly if i were you i'd join a discord server or a forum with people who know what they're talking about so you can get a constant stream of advice and criticism to improve with
>>5892345
most people use either mice or tablets, just pick whatever you feel comfortable with
>>5892373
that's actually a good technique but it's not going to be of much use in OP's case
>>5893906
wrong. the fundamentals are what's in your brain and have nothing to do with the medium you're working with. just because some people have some warped idea that pixel art is dumbed down doesn't mean it's true

Psx was always really interesting about that sort of thing. Monster Rancher games had you inserting your random CDs to generate your new monsters, then swapping back to the disc. It even had unique monsters if you had certain albums, like Raggae Plant from a Bob Marley album

my only guess would be that they're all running on similar engines. but even so it was still crazy to see.
