trying to figure this out - was trip world in europe only released in Germany?
Wikipedia just says Europe released so it's useless information.
On Ebay I cannot find a single listing which does not have "herausragende seite" on the side (german). All manuals in listings have "spielanleitung" on it (and german text). These are listings from France, Italy and UK as well, not just germany. Not that the region matters since the game has english text across all regions but it's just out of curiousity. I can't find any evidence of another EU region release aside from Germany.

Does this game get shit on because it’s by Treasure and it’s so different from their other games? Maybe I’m a fanboy but I recently discovered this game and it clicked with me. I enjoy it a lot and I hope there are others out there that appreciate it. What an awesome surprise on the Genesis because there really aren’t that many action rpgs.

>Light Crusader was late to the game and is probably better than Arcus and WBiMW

But Wonder Boy in Monster World is the best of them all.
It's really not. about 30% of the game is backtracking
>Light Crusader's aesthetic is supposed to be a joke. It was made in 1996 man, it's poking fun at western rpgs intentionally
Oh, come on. Nobody would make a commercial game that needs to make the company money just to poke fun at Yankee games. That's just not sane thinking, m8.
I was never able to get the crystal sword or whatever the secret best sword was. I got the golden armor and the special gloves, forgot their name, but I could never get the secret sword.
I tried everything I read online and none of it worked.

More fun than going out into a bleak empty world again and finding none of the cool shit that happened in the narration.
Honestly after tower of Babel I was getting pretty sick of the dungeons, I almost appreciated just getting a text dump even if it was incalculably lame.
The respawning enemies are not programmed well but I love the shift in tone. Zoda's Revenge had a pretty sweet retrospective endgame.

I can't think of the worst right now but I always found Secret of Mana's endgame way too abrupt.

Why does the minigun wobble organically in the first person view?
Shit man I'm getting all nostalgic, remember putting together my first gaming PC to run UT99, joining and playing Assault on HiSpeed with rockets flying around. That main menu music while tweaking settings, I want to go back, I was young and healthy and had my whole life ahead of me.

At college my roommate had a demo of 2K4, remember watching him play Torlan over and over and loving all the Manta boosting and vehicular combat, I had Halo on the Xbox but this was something else. Built another PC with a Radeon 9800 to play 2k4, loved those custom team deathmatch and CTF servers with random maps like the kegger dorm room and kitchen rats maps, the one with a pirate ship on a beach, random cities and shit. Anyone remember what I'm saying? Loved when I had a good streak twitching with lightning and sniper rifle, or pulling off a shock combo. Man I want to go back, such an innocent time...take me back fuckers
Does anyone know the name of this UT99 map where its a house but it's giant, or rather the players are all tiny?

What went wrong? Was the transition from Squaresoft to Square-Enix fueled by a merger similar to Blizzard-Activision that resulted in a noticeable drop in quality of their games?

The same thing that went wrong with all modern games. Though square really started jumping the shark hard around FFVIII (no matter what you think of the game), they started overthinking the most basic concepts of game design and what made their games fun, it's like they didn't know how to handle their newfound super success and everything became more and more corporate.

Avatar was a respilled timeless classic about a group of dedicated nationalists trying to stop a bunch of soulless corporate (((humans))) from spreading globalism to their lands and wiping out their way of life for more strip mall culture.

Only reddit bugmen hate it.
I'll say this. No movie has ever made me root for the villain harder than Avatar did.

Hey /vr/, I got myself one of these Sony Bravia PS2's, KDL-22PX300, not too long ago. I really like it as a console, and want to use it as my main PS2 console to play games with.
Only problem is, I have a lot of imported PS1 and PS2 games, and this is a European system.

I was wondering if someone could help me find info on how to mod this thing to play region-free.
Ideally something like a chip.

What I know is that this system uses hardware from the latest revisions of the PS2 slims, and it has a bios above 2.30 at least.

it's the same people who think hot glue is only something retards use while if you open any consumer appliance, the chance of hot glue being used is very high. Retro gamers are retarded to begin with to pay the prices they do, so they don't understand what they are actually buying but if a vlogger makes his aesthetic with a loud voice, they want that too and its the only thing that matters to the simpleton retro gamer
It doesn't sell though, does it?

People see mod jobs like that, go "oooh nice", find out how much it costs, then either do it themselves or settle for a conventional install at half the price or less because nobody is ever going to see it and functionality is not improved whatsoever.
I make a decent amount of money from PS2s, used to be more before every kid with a Hakko started offering them. Technically, crosstalk is a thing which is what those people boast about. But I still have my PS2 from over a decade ago thats a rats nest and still works fine, just idiots not understanding what they are buying
Just to be honest since I'm stopping, I make about $2,000 profit a month from that image I posted, total time spent "working" for that is about 4-6 hours. Silly thing is FMCB is free and has all the same functions almost. One thing I refused to get into was video mods, people who buy that stupid hyped up shit are dumb and the people selling it know that. I can't charge someone $100 to make his pixels clearer, absolutely ridiculous.
Too bad PS2 isn't retro yet.

I could get advice on God Hand from this board if it was.

everquest is more about the journey through it's world then getting to 50 as fast as you can compared to many if not all of the post WOW MMOs though,you could spend your entire year just messing around the lower levels around 25/30 & still have enough to tide you over on the main continents without ever leaving towards kunark
Heh, I remember lvling up to lvl 16 in High Pass, then running all the way back to Ak'anon, because I didn't understand how shit worked, bought spells, tried them out, used my new Point blank AE spell that aggroed all the Class GMs that killed me, losing my lvl and spawning back in high hold.
Had to run all the way back naked...

Time to discuss pre-5th gen console FPS titles. I'd argue that there is no finer than Zero Tolerance, despite it's tiny resolution
7 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
Zero Tolerance's window size and FPS were fine for a console shooter from that era. Yeah, Bloodshot looks better, but that doesn't mean Zero Tolerance was bad.

I doubt many people these days would have the patience to play through either of them, though.

I hope the Piko versions can get the Wolf3D guy working on it and squize out a little more game window, but apparently he's disappeared (eaten by his starving country men?)

I've had the game crash (hang up) on multiple occasions with the 10MHz mod. Not sure if it's up to the specific chip I used.

It does play amazing on it, though.
RF is just a noisier version of composite, which is the real target of most MD games.
As a big fan of early FPSes, I've tried to play through Zero Tolerance a whole bunch of times (I've owned it for about 20 years), but the controls get me every time. If I could play it on PC with Doomlike controls I'd definitely do it, although it'd probably absurdly easy if I did.

>What's a randomizer?
A randomizers is a program/website that creates randomized ROMs by shuffling various game components around to create a new experience based off of the original. While commonly used for speedrunning contests, they're fun to play even from a casual perspective.

>Whoa, you got a list for me to check out?
The BIG List of Video Game Randomizers is a fairly comprehensive list of generators and is updated regularly:

The Legend of Zelda (NES): https://sites.google.com/site/zeldarandomizer/
Super Metroid/Link to the Past Crossover: https://alttsm.speedga.me/

Smooth can be achieved if you jump from the top of the blocks to the bottom block without landing to one side. It actually refers to the optimal speed route for that small segment - since in a run you would wall jump up and then hop down onto the block, which requires a bit of precision since just holding left causes you to land on the ground next to it, costing time.
Sorry, I was half awake. BALL, the room where you pick up BALL.

If anyone is looking to get the DARING bonus, you just gotta clear out this room: https://wiki.supermetroid.run/Fast_Pillars_Setup_Room You can get a SECRET bonus after you power bomb the floor by falling into the gap on the right. I think I got DARING by clearing out the pirates and then jumping in the middle on that platform up top, but you might be able to get it just by jumping there, I don't know.
does the universal randomizer for pokemon only works once? I keep getting the same starter pokemons with the same rom, do i need to modify it through the universal randomizer everytime i want a different pokemon starter?
I have no personal experience with that one, but I would say that's probably the case. You'll likely want to fire off like 10 or 20 generated ROM seeds at once and then go through them one at a time.
I'm no expert, but the only ones that I know of that can randomize new seeds within a game itself use .ips patches to change the ROM, like Super Metroid: Arcade.
Unfortunately CD-based games are very difficult to work with. There's only a few on that BIG list thing.

>who cares if you press jump 1000000 times or other stupid shit
I said difficult or odd things, not retarded things.
What fun is there in getting an achievement if you unlock it by simply playing the game normally? An achievement should be rewarded to you for doing something difficult or really strange, not by simply completing the game. What's the point of calling it an achievement if you're not doing anything difficult to achieve it?

On a smoko? I should leave you alone.
The minor toxic people like more show their ego about having more points than others, make other people demotivate for the first objective : have fun . These wanting top leaderboard just want their dingu sucked- oh they don't know nothing valuable could be with them when being in the grave.
I like the idea, but its implementation is far from perfect.
Since they're made by users, it's always boring shit like "beat the first level", "beat the second level", until there's a turbo-autist adding something insane like "beat the game without getting hit once", "get all your characters to level 99"...
