That makes sense. I think i read somewhere that before release SEGA opted to cut down the mega drives ram by half, since the cpu was already costing them an arm and a leg.

The first one, you can play US version but the Japanese translation one is more faithful to the Japanese story without localization strangeness. Either is fine though. Also scenario 2, 3 and premium disc are all translated.

I think PC version would otherwise be the best version due to its graphics and audio, but it's not as polished in some parts. There are some graphics/gameplay bugs, with the most important being that Timon's bonus stages don't have any purpose.

Way easier on Genesis since you can grab onto one of the hippos that you can't on SNES, and it effectively skips an annoying platforming section across water.

1991 was easily the best year. SNES arrived in the west, Street Fighter 2 was released, Sega was wowing everybody with Sonic the Hedgehog, the Amiga hosted a number of classics, and we had a sneak peek at the future. with the Virtuality system.

You're not wrong, OP.

When I was playing through FFIX last year, I thought to myself that a lot of good games came out that year, especially when you think about the western releases.

>-The only two damaging Bug type moves are Pin Missile and Twin Needle and are only learned by Pokemon too weak to properly utilize them (Jolteon is the only exception)

Jolteon has low attack and only pin missile which sucked with it random damage.

Twin Needle was at least viable with the bee thing, assuming that you boost its speed and use doubleteam to avoid getting hit by psychic attacks at all, because the bee is part poison type.

>the encounter rate is obnoxiously high

But can be negated with repels. You gain exp from trainers anyways, random encounters don't contribute much to your team's levels.

>catching Pokemon is reliant on RNG rather than any sort of skill

If you only use Quick Balls like a retard yeah. Carrying False Swipe and a status move is actually 'planning ahead', eg skill. Not much skill, but it's fine for a kids game.

On the coffee mug, in the space between the handle, it shows a green floor instead of white shirt sleeve that it should.

Also, the floor isn't even green, it's blue. So it'd be wrong either way. I noticed because I wanted to get this printed on a tea mug and I hate errors.

I've moved twice since then. Still in legal proceedings with the landlord over the condition of the former place, but the new one is pretty clean still cause I've only lived here for like a month.

Landlord actually accused me of not following my nationality's expectations, which was odd because it's stupid to think a whole nation of people has to be clean, and he was an immigrant.

well I have to like the character before they can go on a mug. And they have to have a scene where they hold a mug or I can have them commissioned holding a mug if they never do and I like them enough. And the character has to have a neat design, I probably won't bother with a cookie cutter character even if they are good. And I was never a big Gundam fan. And the backlog of characters I need to get is long and my collection grows slowly. I still need to get Ryuko and Seras and Raphiel and Lina and maybe Gendo. Probably need Phoenix Wright too, and there's trails in the sky which has a million good characters. I also might need to get some mug reprints.
>>
>>5513452
Lordy. Well, to each his own. Good luck with your mug collection.

Just started playing this OH MY GOD. The nostalgia hit is astonishing. I'm hearing all the dialogue in Harrison Ford's voice. The MIDI soundcard rendition of John Williams music is bringing tears to my eyes. I feel like a kid seeing Raiders of The Lost Ark AND like a teenager playing on my Dad's 386 VGA PC at the same time. It's incredible.

Is it actually a good game?

I know it's not Harrison Ford doing the voice. I'm sorry to say I'm actually playing the game in a browser on classic reloaded. There are no voices. But the "camera angles", scenarios and characterisation are so authentic and cinematic that my imagination is filling in the dialogue.

which makes mods sound like consolefags , frankly. PC games should go back OS. Since OS pretty much dictates what hardware and era of games can run on it. imo if you're gonna allow all 90s console games, you gotta allow any PC game that runs on Win95/ME/98.

I don't think it even originated on Genesis?
>>
>>5513039
Yeah the Immortal was originally on the Apple IIGS and didn't come out on the Genesis until a year later. Dunno how much involvement EA had with porting the Immortal to the Genesis since they were only the publisher. However, Polterguy WAS developed by EA, but the Immortal was not. Polterguy also came out two years later.

Genesis version is probably the more easy to get running in this day and age, so it doesn't really matter.

I know a lot of big time collectors that have sold off their collections recently, all because they no longer had interest in the hobby. Stores in my area are starting to get a lot more retro games traded in and they are staying on the shelves way, way longer than they were just a couple years ago. Also, looking on price charting, a lot of game consoles are either plateauing in price or are declining overall. What do you think? Has anyone else noticed a general pull back in interest on retro games?

I'm not saying the CPU is not beefy. I'm saying it's not beefy enough.
Soon, either through new CPUs or software optimization, you will finally have decent N64 emulation. Something that was not even on the horizon before Parallel Angrylion existed.
