It's not that it's hard, it's just dull to play compared to a proper platforming stage. MM2 is full of these little annoying things, it's got a strong identity for sure but beyond that i'll never understand how it came to be considered the crowning achievement of the series.

Thoughts on SMBDX? Personally my favorite way to play the original.

Yeah, here's some more comment on the screen.
nothing else to be said about it. it would be amazing, but for the gameboy resolution, which renders it unplayable
I had a lot of fun with it back in 2002 or so
Haven't played it since
Excellent game. The only downsides imo are having to scroll the screen up and down and the missing "storm" in lost levels 5-1 and 6-1
It doesn't have worlds 9-D as well

when does this get good? I loved Planescape and Fallout, but oh man this doesn't have half of the atmosphere, writing, and originality that made those so good.

All the games are very connected, it would be unwise to skip any.
yeah I didn't mean to skip the game completely, I worded it poorly, I meant this:
get a controller with auto fire
The game really picks up after episode 2, I like it a lot. Episode 2 was just a slog though

i am new to /vr/ too and I got my ass chewed out for using an hdtv.

what setup am I supposed to use? what video signal?

>what setup am I supposed to use?
A CRT but don't fall for the Sony/broadcast monitor ruse.
>what video signal?
The best you possibly can. RGB/Component>Svideo>Composite>RF
CRT with RF is just fine if you're truly old school.
I can vouch for these PS3 cables, they're great for my PS2.
As for the SNES, I just use 3rd party S-Video cables since the 1st party ones are fuck-tardedly priced for even used sets.
Play however the fuck you want. Like I care about some cunts opinion. Just tag an anon and tell them to fuck off it'll feel much better.

fuck off
did you even search?

Yes. Quite well actually.

Console cables and misc body parts / fluids. The crystal keeps the souls away, the bags keep away the stench.

What is the worst game you have ever played?
203 replies and 19 images omitted. Click here to view.
Any of those fucking RPGs where they give you a choice of 30 character classes but you can only beat the game with 3 of them.

>Final Fantasy 1 (NES)
You completely gimp your ability to beat the game if you choose the wrong starting classes.

>The Final Fantasy Legend (Game Boy)
Same thing. The bug monster dudes seem awesome. The ability to transform into other monsters and gain their abilities? Amazing. Except choosing one of them for your party severely gimps your game.

There are lots of RPGs like this, where you're given so many options for starting out but only a FEW of them actually WORK. That's complete horse hockey bullshit.

If the one year crunch to push the game out with reused gaming assets wasn't a random and unnecessary annoyance, then how is the game mechanic of three days repeated that either? Try to imagine that the stress the developers felt creating the game has been faithfully represented in the game and you might gain a new appreciation and perspective on it.
The game revolves around it so it's far from contrived. Sadly the game was supposed to feature a repeating week but they had to cut it down to the nitty and gritty to make the deadline. Once you can immerse yourself in the world and embrace the atmosphere of the game it becomes an enriching experience and you'll understand the love the game gets. Like the three day cycle, you'll find yourself returning to play through the game again because you enjoy it too.
I'm not sure what the worst Zelda game I've played would end up being. I'm not sure if I can lump any of them into that, except for maybe Botw, maybe, because it's such a stark contrast from the rest of the series and I'm salty that there's a lack of content and laughable over abundance of repetitive content such as the bite sized shrines and the kokorok seed collectibles. Botw doesn't revolve around them for plot related reasons so it's more egregious to me personally.
Without question, the most overrated "classic" PC game I've ever played, more so because of how an affront it is to the first game

>ground zero for Ken Levine's meta-narrative bullshit that would get worse in Bioshit

The reason to choose SS2 over 1 was because 2 was, for a time, easier to get running with a modern control setup. Now, you can just pirate the enhanced edition of SS1 without rebinding keys with an additional program or some shit, and how it's still a better designed game, with or without tank sim controls.
fucking loved that game
you can actually find it pretty easily online. it worked without much fuss on win10

Kind of my plan honestly. I'm getting really tired of having stuff laying around.
Do you finally understand why your mom has been telling you to clean your room for the last 15 years?
Do you faggots really have that much of a difficult time to find multiple consoles? I have like 8 Snes, 4 which had memory issues, 3 model 2 SNES, 9 NES that all work, too many model 1 and 2 genesis, 4 model 3 genesis, 4 model 2 sega CDs, and a bunch of game cubes and 64s lol

I think the first is better for sure. All the masks are ok but I only play JP if I want an extra challenge (hard mode is harder and you have limited continues)

Hi. For some godforsaken reason my roommate thinks retro gaming is cool despite not being alive for most of it. He wants to get into Sega stuff, but all I have for multiplayer on the Genesis/Sega CD are like, NBA Jam and maybe Toejam and Earl. It basically gets worse on the Saturn (besides Virtual-On and fighting games from Capcom, I guess) and Dreamcast.

If anyone has recommendations it would help a lot.

Lol gee I wonder why! This from the board that has a tamper tantrum when an old game resells for more than 10% of it's original value. Not saying money is the be all and end all, but this thread is embarrassing even for here.

This is a really fun game. The unfortunate problem with it is my back up copy has all of its CD audio tracks playing back as static ear rape. It sounds like data being played back as music. The tracks sound totally fine when played back on a PC mind you.

I'm not sure what the issue is. I am playing on a model 1 Saturn with Psuedo Saturn Kai v6.314. Does it work fine on your Saturn?

I'm only interested in playing on real hardware. If anyone else would like to try I can share my bin/cue of the game, see if you get different results.
Post it, I'll burn it and post results tomorrow
Sure, give it a try. Let me know what happens. I think it might just be my Saturn at this point.
Gotta swap the endian-ness of them bits, son.
I already tried ambi-famulating the euclidoids and I got the same results, static ear rape like it's trying to play data as audio, not audio as audio.
