who played street fighter 2010? did somebody beat it?
8 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
Man the original sequel to SF was really weird,

you guys think it'll ever be acknowledged by Capcom? If it hasnt already ofc idk
yeah. back when i was about 25 or 26, i learned the patterns of abadox and in about 4 days, i could get to the 5th level on 1 man. i still can. its ass simple. same with turtles 1. i could get to the technodrome w/o losing a turtle. but both those games... i never beat. just gave up after that.
tl;dr.. cant win, dont try
quality post
>2010 felt on par with batman or bionic commando for difficulty.
Both of those were cakewalks compared to SF2010 for me, beat them automatically whenever I wanted.

>I would put it even a step below tmnt.
This I'd agree with.

Modern Capcom has officially recognized it as a Street Fighter game set in an alternate universe, but canon is the Japanese story where it isn't Ken
I did and yes, when I was like 9 or 10.
Once you beat that hard as fuck first guy/level, the rest isn't as challenging. Still difficult and worth the play through, but that first thing always fucked my head in when I was a kid.

A fucking stupid and meaningless term
It was never used. Period. Anyone who did was retarded.
It's totally arbitrary.
Belt scrollers were specifically beat em ups because of how the whole thing feels like a conveyor belt that keeps moving. It was a Japanese term though that's never been widely used outside of there.

A girl I am dating is coming over to my house for the first time. What's a good 2-player NES game we can play? She doesn't like shooting or sports games (but yes she does like video games in general). Preferably something co-op or comfy
124 replies and 20 images omitted. Click here to view.
The co-op version is for pussies. Play versus.
Nice, sounds like a good memory there. I've never played it but I might have to give it a try, I always like games with hidden areas. Thanks for the story.
What would that entail? O-oh...
Were the women semi-attractive at least?
Anon, I think your definition of hobby is mistaken. Something does not have to be niche to be a hobby, that's not at all part of the definition.

Do you prefer short bursts of fun, arcade-like experiences or video games that have a giant world or story to sink a bunch of time into? I personally like the former a lot more. I think gaming lost a lot of its charm after the dreamcast. Sega was the only company to heavily push games that were very "in the moment-like". Games that didnt try to be grand or epic in scale, but games that focused more on delivering brief sessions of exciting gameplay similar to what an arcade does. I dont know why, but when I have to invest in a long story or campaign, the whole thing starts to feel like a chore playing. (Ex: Not knowing where I left off, cant play the levels that I want to play immediately in most games, way too text or dialogue heavy, etc.) Feel free to discuss this topic in the thread. I wanna know what most of /vr/ prefers.

Gotta start using Limiter Cut.
This website is autistic as fuck and I'm loving every bit of it. You can tell this guy breathes Crazy Taxi.
I prefer short bursts of fun, but every now and then I'll play a game with a story like Shenmue. Resident Evil 4 is the best, in my opinion, because even though it has a narrative the gameplay feels the same from beginning to end and it's a fucking romp
If the games good, I can enjoy both, but I still prefer a fast paced arcade experience over a large expansive world. If I want to get immersed in a piece of media, I'll read a book or watch a movie.
I've played all kinds of games in the past and ended up not being able to be hooked by games anymore, except with games that offer short bursts of fun and are gameplay focused. Examples of this are: doom 1 and 2, smash bros, 2d sonics, pretty much all of the arcade cabinet games, etc.

>The KKK is really in EarthBound?
First played it all on pc emulator when I first was getting into the series. Then I picked up a physical copy when it was $100. Eventually sold it and in the present day I got the SNES mini and beat it again.

It's definitely one of those games you can pick up again years later and play it start to finish. Also not so picky on whatever I play it on. It's pretty simple graphics wise.

Why can we never just discuss what we're speedrunning? It's always about the meta bullshit when it comes to RTA threads here.
because of the howling babies that occupy this place.
Sure, I load the stream whenever GDQ's on and use it for background noise while checking in when it sounds like something interesting is happening.

I'm wondering if/when they will save the animals ever again

I think that is a plasma thing, more than a LCD thing. I've had no such problems with my television so far (had it for 10 months). Maybe it's older sets that suffer.

Welcome to another thread anons!

> What is this?
This is a Super Mario World romhack being created by various anons here on /vr/. Think like the VIP hacks that the 2channel/5chan community have made. At the moment, we have 11 levels complete. We were also working on a potential overworld outline last time, although that did not pan out the way we were intending. While progress is slow, we have a lot of other levels that are in the works too! The final hack will contain around 36-40 levels total!

> Can I Join Too?
Of course! Half the levels are still left to be claimed. In order to claim a level, head of to Google Sheets with all the claim content and request access. As long as a level is unclaimed, you're free to claim it for yourself! Please be sure to mark all the things you need for your level, including submaps, Map16, sprites, and music if needed. When submitting your level, please place all these in a .zip file to send so everything can be inserted. The link for level claiming will be listed below.

> How do I get started?
To begin, follow the links below to design and test your levels!

> For the actual general usage SMW Editor, you'll need Lunar Magic - https://fusoya.eludevisibility.org/lm/
> You'll also need an emulator...I recommend ZMZ - https://www.smwcentral.net/?p=section&a=details&id=5681

no way...
flare gun is to powerful

Got it.
I tried NBllood yesterday and it seems pretty "well done". It does feel a bit different though when compared to the original DOS build. Given that it's early in development I think the dude has outdone himself.
Not at all. Fresh Supply is off in some of the important little details.
Is Fresh supply actually bad, or just different? It's a brainless old-school shooter anyways, does it make the game worse if some gibs fly around with slighlty different physics?

there's nothing retro about that at all tho
This is Gilda, the protagonist of Gilda's Green Grimoire. It's a 3D collectathon platformer in the style of Donkey Kong 64 or Banjo Kazooie, where you play as a witch who has to find the scattered pages of her grimoire in order to banish the mischievous elemental spirits who are running amok and making life difficult for her friends in Witchhaven.
I know everyone hates your gay ass but I would play your witch collectathon for what it’s worth
I will model this in 3D.

Forgot about that one. Yeah, I honestly agree.
Stickerbrush Symphony is hard to compare to other songs outside of video games. That kind of fluffy relaxing vibe is something more commonly found in bands like Cocteau Twins, so it's not surprising that a lot of people latch onto the track when it's so novel for many people
Glad you brought up Cocteau Twins, I'm also a big fan.

It also gives me the same vibe as these Erasure tracks:

>The new model is built around a Broadcom BCM2711 SoC, which, with four 1.5GHz Cortex A72 CPU cores, should be a big upgrade over the quad core Cortex A53 CPU in the Raspberry Pi 3. The RAM options are the even bigger upgrade though, with options for 1GB, 2GB, and even 4GB of DDR4. The Pi 3 was limited to 1GB of RAM, which really stung for desktop-class use cases.

will emulation be better now on this thing or is it more of a software problem?

600MHz faster clock speed on the XU4 compared to Pi3B+ when the latter is not throttling, along with 4 extra cores. Pi4 is around twice as fast as the old model actually, the CPU can process more instructions per clock and supports out-of-order execution.
Yup, the much faster FPU will also help here, particularly if versions are made to specifically support the NEON instructions. I recon Dreamcast stuff may aslo become fairly playable... maybe.
at least it's not mini-HDMI like on the Pi Zero, that connector is rare af
Lakka is nice but it also has less game ports than RetroPie. RetroPie is simply supported better and gets stuff like zdoom, openbor, streets of rage remake and more.
I'll give you openBoR and SORR, but I personally don't care about the FPS engines

>8 CPUs
WHAT WERE THEY THINKING? And even the most competent Sega developers at the end of its life were only able to coax out the graphical equivalent of sub-par PSX games.

Not gonna lie, packing all of EIGHT separate CPU in a kiddie game box in the mid90's, 10+ years before consumer grade PCs could even DREAM of having a measly 8 CORES, is pretty gangsta

Hats off to the japs
Now go count how many CPUs there are in your graphics cards.

Can a processor be central and specialized at the same time?
Japanese folks didn't consider these "kiddie game boxes". The Famicom was the family computer. All the while in burgerland, nintendo had to disguise the famicom into the hideous NES, even adding stupid fucking loading mechanisms, all just to make it look like a VCR, because American companies basically ruined the videogame industry and consumers wouldn't buy a "kiddie game box" anymore. As an American myself, it's obvious it's not Americans I hate; it's the general stupidity our population suffers from.
It was absolutely called the PSX by a bunch of people. It was codenamed PSX, it was referred to as PSX in gaming mags, and it was even advertised as PSX for a while in the US before the system came out.

The real "zoomers" or wtfever you guys are calling them are the ones who don't know anything about this.

>Metamorphic Force
One of the best Konami bmups, very simple and straightforward but fast paced and fun. Some aspects are really frustrating though, like the ground attack can be finnicky, and enemies get grab invincibility when attacking. Also bosses are all fought the exact same way, and the only reason they're challenging is because you can't interrupt their attacks which can be annoying. Super easy on normal, but actually on par with most Capcom's games on the hardest setting.
Final Fight always felt clunky to me and not fluid

D&D felt more fun in arcades during era due to the multiple kinds of fantasy enemies, items, classes to choose from, etc

Streets of Rage also felt darker, preferred the visuals/music
If you credit feed yeah I guess. FF is an acquired taste, feels clunky at first but then everything clicks and it feels really good to play, besides maybe a lack of superjoy input buffers. Though, you consider FF clunky but like D&D ToD?
>Guardroid fights

Nah. A good 9/10, though.
