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.

Looking for games similar to Dark Seed to watch play throughs of on Youtube.

Phantasmagoria and I have no mouth but I like ice cream, I've already watched. Maybe not stuff like Shivers, it's a bit too tame.

Dark Seed 2
Bad Mojo
Dreamweb (I prefer Amiga version due to music) and Martian Gothic
maybe, Mortalus (oh, by the way, there are no playthroughs of this timeless masterpiece on YouTube, so good luck playing it yourself, L.o.L.)
Midnight Nowhere, maybe? anycase, drop it after you exit the hospital into the street
Deadly Premonition
D, Enemy Zero, D2 (just watch supergreatfriend's LPs of these)
Angel Devoid, maybe Burn Cycle too, althrough the latter is dogshit
maybe Daedalus Encounter, maybe maybe Black Dahlia, dunno whether they'll fit
For Dark Seed, it's probably because it's actually incredibly bad and convoluted for a point and click adventure, aside from the fancy licensed Giger visuals.
It's nice to look at but the puzzles are just soulcrushing trial and error, it's REALLY not worth playing as a game.
There's actually good and playable point and click adventures out there too. I suggest trying some of them out.
I see that, I do that myself sometimes (Vinesauce is a guilty pleasure in that regard), but I also think you shouldn't get used to it to the point that you'll just totally eschew playing games, watch out for that, because that can start to sneak up on you.

Quiz King of Fighters. You should recognize some of the characters from KoF like Terry Bogard, Mai Shiranui or Nakoruru.
This. Or the info is just out of date.

I never had to blow a cartridge in my life but apparently that's something that was very normal back then.
I had to clean some dog poop from my Spot Goes to Hollywood cartridge when I lent it to someone once, though.

Do they actually do anything for emulation or is it just an overrated multi-emulator?

>clone the repo and pull+make whenever you want
>vs downloading a standalone that works
And it's unfinished. Until its finished and usable and the controller bullshit is fixed, there is no reason to use cuckarch on PC
It's literally a glorified skin. The authors need to know nothing about emulation or console hardware. Seems like a teen's pet project.
retroarch offers features that standalone emulators don't offer, and I use many of those features. what's the fucking problem?

yeah I tried to use photoshop once and I couldn't figure out how to make my dick look bigger after fucking around with it for 5 minutes. obviously photoshop is trash
It doesn't do anything for emulation except for screw up your gamepad configurations and somehow run Dolphin like dogshit. But I still use it because I'm too lazy to get the actual standalone emulators :/

What do you guys think about the sequel, Star Gladiator 2/Plasma Sword?

While SG was its own thing, 2 was more like a common Capcom 2D fighter with high emphasis on supers, while 1 didn't feature supers at all.
It was a good game, but pretty cheap (reused the models from the first game, added clone characters and very few new characters), but completely overhauled the game system.
It had a pretty mediocre port to Dreamcast.
This is so tight. Like Megaman X on steroids.
Intrasting but ultimately a waste of time since no one plays it
The whole game is pretty cool and has good music.
As no one plays Star Gladiator, Rival Schools, Cyberbots, Tech Romancer or any fighting game besides Street Fighter.

Where does it rank?
79 replies and 7 images omitted. Click here to view.
I just played through Frontier 2 for the first time and it certainly didn't feel finished. It felt like entire scenes were missing from the plot. Some characters never get introduced, some get introduced and never do anything or have any plot relevance. There are entire scenes that have nothing to do with anything else in the story.
>Magnetic Storm especially is an almost certain party wipe in mecs' case, as it will deal massive damage to mechs even with a lot of armor on.
all your normally status immune mecs getting red mess and palsy is probably the worst part desu, it's not like mecs can't have force and electric defense the game just doesn't tell you that powered suits don't have that
every SaGa game is like that intentionally because SaGa games have mimetic storytelling rather than didactic, which is honestly just another filter for low attention span tastelets
>Some characters never get introduced, some get introduced and never do anything or have any plot relevance. There are entire scenes that have nothing to do with anything else in the story.
Sounds like your typical SaGa game.
It's weird here though, because of the increased focus on an actual narrative structure. This kind of thing isn't really a problem for the other games because they are more open ended. Frontier 2 sets itself up as a game with a more conventional structure but doesn't follow through. Frontier 2 is way more restricted in terms of open ended progression compared to the other SaGa games I've played too, which I assume was an intentional trade off to try to incorporate a more conventional story. It just doesn't work on either level. I really wonder what the design intent was.

The highest drop rates for the low uniques are all (properly) in Act1 Norm, it's just that people don't seem to spend a whole lot of hours farming there
>What were Blizztard North thinking?
I can accept these feelings in general, but this part probably works as designed... that rare, 'oh shit' occasion of a unique drop in the beginning of the game. Maybe it's TOO rare?
how do i use (((gheed's))) two warranty lads
I found Axe of Fechmar in the Den of Evil when playing a barbarian once. I was able to use it all the way into hell because of how powerful the +3 freezes targets was.
how does Titan Quest compare?
I only ever got up to the Desert area in it, never got very far. Been thinking of going back to play it again but not sure whether it's as good mid/late game as Diablo 2, or if anything like a holy grail exists for it

So which one has better sound? I remember Earthworm Jim sounding like garbage on the SNES
59 replies and 5 images omitted. Click here to view.
the genesis does a good job of sounding like an 80s synthesizer, because it is an 80s synthesizer.
the snes does a poor job of sounding like an orchestra, because it is an 80s synthesizer.
Except the SNES does a fine job sounding like an orchestra. There has been countless of examples posted on this board already, I don't need to provide evidence of this.
>Except the SNES does a fine job sounding like an orchestra.
Not if your standard for the sound of an orchestra is a recording of an actual orchestra.
The SNES & Genesis have the capability to sound just as good as each other, it just depends on composition of the music. For example, I really like Sonic the Hedgehog's soundtrack, but it would sound terrible on a SNES sound chip.

We had a thread about Turok 2 the other day so let's try another.

I just beat level 4 'Lair of the Blind Ones' meaning I've beaten the first 5 levels (I also did Hive on the Mantids before) but I only have one life remaining. Something tells me that isn't going to be enough for the last level, let alone the final boss.

Do you think if I revisit levels I might be able to collect tokens I missed and get more lives?

Feel free to talk about the game and Turok in general.

Has anyone played Rage Wars or Turok 3? How are they?
Rage Wars is a full-on multiplayer game in the vain of Quake 3 or Unreal Tournament. It's pretty great in that regard. Over 30 maps, a ton of cool guns, and large roster of characters to play as, including a raptor and a pack of mantid mites.

Turok 3 is divisive. It's the most linear of the N64 games and is much more story focused; it's got a very Half-Life feel to its structure. You can play as either Danielle Fireseed or Joseph Fireseed, each have differing arsenals (for example, Danielle has an explosive shotgun and Joseph has the 'Shredder', an electrified shotgun that stuns enemies). The graphics and animations are a downgrade from 2 but the performance, as a result of that, is generally better. Even the gore is toned down. The multiplayer is okay with a lot of boring characters to play as and more and more interesting game modes than Rage Wars but much worse guns and maps. If you want MP than stick with Rage Wars.
There should be an inventory screen in the pause menu.
Doesn't 3 have an unlockable 3rd campaign too
You get to play as Joshua who has the full arsenal. That's the only difference.
