Is there a more hilarious and bigger failure in game history than the Atari Jaguar?

Can you imagine trying to make waves in 5th gen with a non-3D system that specialized in FMV? What a dumb gamble, not even the most extreme luddite anime otaku would buy into that.
I still have my ngage
PC-Engine had always been the otaku console but the PC-FX ended up losing that spot to the Saturn. Nevertheless the PC-FX seems to have still had some support in the hardcore otaku circles, for istance I don't think I've seen a single PC-FX game that did not have surprisingly well animated anime scenes in it.
This was like the last home console with porn games officially released. It's a big shame it flopped.
Yes. Any DMG rival not made by Sega, NEC, or Atari. If we're being honest, all of the better known rivals were also massive failures by comparison. The original Game Boy was a fucking juggernaut.

The Atari Jaguar lives on, by the way. I believe its tech is still used in vending machines, hospital equipment, or some other crap. I think I read something about sewing machines, though, that might actually be the 3DO.

One of the best action games on the SNES ( albeit being a bit on the short side ) None of you faggots ever mentioned it. Shame on you! Really! Do yourself a favor and play it, NOW!

Why no sequel?

That's good retro game design. It's supposed to be full of brick walls since the cartridge can't store months of content. Your parents wouldn't feel like they got their money's worth if you finished it within a week. Disney had a specific rule about typical player progression percentage over time, so their games would be unlikely to be completed within one rental period:

What are you referring to, the edges of the comic panels and the white spaces between them? In that case, it's supposed to look like a comic book page.

Anyways, it was a pretty late Genesis release and SoA wasn't interested in 2D games for Saturn (comic books are a 2D medium), but I suppose they could have come up with a 3D concept, like maybe this time the comic characters escape into the real world?
Each enemy takes a while to defeat. The progress is glacial and very easy to lose. Not very encouraging.

>That's good retro game design
Nah, me and my friends just got frustrated and played other games. I remember us getting a game over at the Chinese long nails dude and everyone being really mad.
Sega's still got the patent (for comic book looking beat 'em ups, don't know the patent no. but it's probs on the Wikipedia page). Surely, they could make or license some kind of sequel? As others have pointed out, it still looks fucking awesome for a game made 20+ years ago.
It was normal in the 90s to get bored of all your video games and do something else. We couldn't beg our parents for more because we hadn't finished what we had. I didn't say it's good game design, just good retro game design.

I'm not very experienced with emulation
After reading multiple posts on how to get PS1 games running on the SNES, I managed to get the CORE_psx_rearmed_neon thingie on Hakchi2, retroarch and all.
What I don't get is the part concerning the bios. Everywhere I look, the BIOS files are all upper case, and every post I've read on PS1 emulation tells me to make sure they're lowercase. I'm afraid that I can't find these lowercase bios files, despite being named the same way - anywhere.
I have SCPH-5501.BIN, SCPH-5500.BIN, and the SCPH-5502.BIN, and I'm not sure what to do with them now.
Sure, I could just try to slap them on the SNES Mini with the BIOS installer, but I'm afraid that I'll mess it up.
Could anyone shine a light on this situation?

please and thank you
How about renaming them to lowercase?

Also, this isn't Idaho.

Post every single green herb you can remember from an old vidya. Why it became a standard anyway? It's kind of Japanese thing like asking for your blood type? You know the game is ultimately comfy when there are no medkits and first aid packs but just green herbs

Jammin, we be jammin
I know it's sophomoric, but I never stop chuckling at the idea of the game characters smoking grass to recover health in games.
>Why it became a standard

Using herbs to treat injuries has been a staple of fantasy long before video games even existed. Obviously the practice even exists in some actual cultures, not that random plants just rubbed into a wound have any real medicinal effect aside from creating a physical barrier against bacteria entering.

And I would say that potions are the standard in RPGs going back long before JRPGs were a thing.
there are real plants with antiseptic or styptic properties while your antidote herbs might be anti-histamine or anti-inflammatory

Why do hero sprites work incorrectly? I noticed it with Crag too.
>Why do hero sprites work incorrectly?
Original game had a single sprite for each class of heroes, regardless of their gender. HotA people fixed that by adding both male and female variant for each class.

When my brother saw ads for this, he thought they were trying to rip us off with cheap 2D graphics so we never got it.

Also, Game Boy Pocket should be cheaper because it's smaller.

Hmm, you might be right on pacing but charm-wise I found SMRPG's pre-rendered sprites a little hard to love. I don't hate them, or anything, but Paper Mario's style is just more appealing.
I do find it funny after reading OP's comment that the SNES RPG tries to look 3D and the N64 RPG tries to look 2D. Gotta admire both of em for wanting to be different.
t.40 yo lmao
I remember seeing footage of Shenmue back in the day where they showed the quicktime events and I thought the entire game played like that.
You can still get a CRT television, a NES and a copy of Duck Hunt for cheap, dude. What are you waiting for, Nintendo to make a new NES Classic with Zapper support?

the game has "gravitas"
it's not a very fun videogame to be honest but it has storyline and aesthetic or something I guess

I don't really like the blue/white and black/red thing myself, it's kind of dumb
Because it does something novel, unlike 99% of other shmups.
