did any game get this right? the only one i can think of is the original half life in which you land like 10ft backwards of where you were standing originally, pretty satisfying to see the devs had a grasp of physics while modern devs get it wrong every time

Why are so many of these NES homebrew games of the screen flipping variety? Is scrolling tricky to implement?
A, that one.

Is there any other game in development for the NES?
I'll try to have it up by Saturday-Sunday, but I'm making no promises. A lot of major shit has been happening since the end of last thread, so my time has been short. It should turn out very great if my plan for it is completed as intended. I'll also keep track of the requests/additions in this thread when editing the updated stuff, too, so keep the good content here coming!
For the moment, anyone interested can consult the old (outdated) list here >>6013381 >>6013390 and scroll through the thread it's in to scour for roms.

What are are some of the greatest retro 3 ~ 8+ player multiplayer games out there?

I personally own a PS1 and a Sega Saturn and I just recently got a Sega saturn multitap for pretty cheap but I don't want to just limit the thread to just PS1 and Sega Saturn games.
Crash Team Racing and Crash Bash. But don't bother trying to 100% Crash Bash, because some of those extra challenges are horseshit. But otherwise, it's a lot of fun with some friends. All minigames, mostly based on pretty good action concepts. None of that turn based board game shit.

Crash Team Racing is the best kart racer ever. Including the microtransaction-filled remake.

It's a downgrade since they replaced all real time 3D exploration and cutscenes with visual novel menus and talking heads.
What? You still fight him.
The only real negatives here are the Ocelot boss fight and jeep chase at the end being rendered kindergarten-baby-games-easy by the first person camera mode. Other than that it's pretty solid, unless Grey Fox going ULTRA CUHRAYZEE during cutscenes is a dealbreaker for you.

Honestly I was having trouble thinking of a bad remake. Most just improve the graphics, make minor changes and add stuff. Though I bet the new FF7 is gonna be shitty.

>p3p is a port with extra content
P3P stood out to me because it was a release of the game that took away 75% of the 3D modeled environments and replaced them with non-animated 2D sprites. Adding a pointless girl mode and only a few new personas.

It was certainly a more of a reworking than just a simple "port" of Persona 3/Persona 3:FES, no matter what Wikipedia says.

No it's in there ... goes on to youtube to check, first vid shows the boss fight.

>the Ocelot boss fight
Dude, do you even remember the original? You could win that thing in seconds adding first person shooting (which I'm assuming is your point) didn't make it that much easier.

I'm playing through this bad boy again and honestly it's still one of my favorite FPS' of all time.

I remember when got it as a kid...my toaster couldn't run it properly because I had a fucking Banshee and not enough RAM. Even turning the sound off didn't improve the FPS.

Still...solid fucking FPS. Under-appreciated imo.

Not to take away from the PS1 version but the CD version is probably better aged. Both are great though but this pixel art is still beautiful.

While the PS1 version has an additional dungeon, the Saturn version is technically better. The Music is higher quality and even the FMVs look a bit nicer.


Which dungeon did they add to PS1?

I dont play Dragon Quest, Final Fantasy, or tLoZ for that reason, but they're the only thing similar to D&D I could think of on the NES.

>enjoy a computer game for what it is instead of cursing it for what it could never possibly be.
My favorite nes game is Dragon Quest 1 with all of its flaws, FF1 is also up there, im fine for enjoying things for what they are, but for a D&D game thats different, D&D im suppose to use my imagination to solve problems and overcome things, an NES game cant do that. why should i play these games and not the real thing, or just a game made with the limitations of the NES in mind (the games i mentioned before), and not something that was scaled down to be on the NES (these AD&D games)
>tl;dr why play this other than Dragon Quest, Final Fantasy, or tLoZ?
I'd imagine he meant the limitations of these and not DnD?
>Pools of Radiance
Yeah, if you were born in 60's or 70's. As someone who loved stuff like Realms of Arkania and Betrayal at Krondor, PoR was barebones as shit, and it's still one of the most tedious DOS games to play out there
But these ARE games with the limitations of (IBM compatible PCs) in mind and are not supposed to perfectly recreate an AD&D game, just like Final Fantasy 1 isn't supposed to dispite essentially being an unliscensed adaptation of the same tabletop game.

I just can't understand your thinking. Nobody's saying you should play a computer game instead of real D&D, but I am saying they are two totally different experiences and it's pretty nutty to expect one to even try to emulate the other.

tl;dr D&D is just a brand name, and D&D video games shouldn't be held to a (ridiculously) higher standard for just using that name.

Quick Man's stage is the gayest fucking stage on God's green earth. I understand that pattern memorization is a legitimate and fundamental aspect of any game, but with limited lives and such a harsh penalty for failure it's just, well, gay. Take a quarter of my life bar and that's understandable, but this is a stage with three dozen or so instant deaths that you need to be prepared for so far in advance that you can't even see the oncoming threat. That shit is inexcusable, and it's baffling it's in a game that isn't sucking the quarters out of my pocket.

Thank you for reading my personal blog.

>I understand that pattern memorization is a legitimate and fundamental aspect of any game
This admission alone makes the rest of your post seem meaningless. Why complain about having to remember what, 3 or 4 screens? Honestly, once you learn where to land and remember to constantly keep moving, there's really no excuse for dying repeatedly at that part.
Mega Man 2 has poor stage in general, some of the worst in the classic series. I don't really get why it's the face of the franchise
