Why is Ikaruga always in the top 5 (if not #1) of every list of top shmups?

Yeah, I had it bootleg on a Dreamcast multi-game image because it was so small.
I think you have me confused for someone else, I don't even understand this reply under any context in the thread so far.

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.

What are some retro systems that are easy to program for? I dont mind assembly, but cant stand poor architecture that leads to hacky code
14 replies omitted. Click here to view.
The Atari 2600, that also has one of the best homebrew scenes and documentation.
The 2600 is weird in that there's no hardware framebuffer, meaning you need to implement it in software
The Apple II is insanely well documented as well, because Apple's manuals told you everything down to the signal level, but then its architecture is a little too minimalist so not many people want to code for it.
I would argue the same with Amiga vs Mega Drive. The latter is designed to do sprites and side scrolling really well, so the Amiga can never hope to pull off Sonic or Vectorman, but since it's a computer, it's a bit more well-rounded and has flexibility the MD does not.
It could but saying it can't do scrolling in an integral part of underage signaling

It was very normal to not have a frame buffer back when enough RAM to implement one would have increased costs many times. You don't "implement it in software" any more than I implement velcro straps in shoelaces. They're different ways of achieving the same result.

What was the best special weapon?
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
The Megabuster is still the best weapon since the RM's ones are way too specialized.
In X2? The Buster
>Crystal H.
Hydrochloride of meth?
Storm tornado and triad thunder if we're talking the SNES games
the powers in x2 are cool but their not exactly good or fun. that being said speedburner does absurd amts of damage to certain enemies, along with crystal hunter being ohko to small mobs. my problem with the powers in this game is that you can't L/R scroll through them while you're charging or else you will inevitably activate bubble shot or silk shot's charged so you never really get to have quick fun with the charged up versions. you should really ask what was the best charged up or favorite. personally i thought the charged up version of crystal was really cool and whacky in a weird way (time distortion) but it slows you down too. charged up bubble shield is fun for clearing one hit enemies like going through the moth stage with all the AIDS mosquitos.

Works surprisingly well. Expect the odd frameskip. Good enough for rpgs. I played Megaman 7 and X series without big problems too.

I like to think that if brave firefighters was ever released for the 3DO, it woulda been weird. And i woulda loved it
Weird Dreams. What a disturbing game. If you have a chance to read the story that comes with it, the game feels all the more eerie.

Why is the NES port called Double Dragon if it's only single-player?

There's a store here called Double Dragon. It had some serious code violations and had to close temporarily last year. That explains how it's so much cheaper than wypipo stores.
Definitely the best DD3 that's for sure. But that's like saying the shit I took the other day was shinier than the one I took this morning.

Chris Seavor Releases Draft For Scrapped Conker Sequel
I don't know if the recycled tutorial elements are a fun mirror of the first or if it's a sign that the game would suffer from rehash syndrome
I don't get the movable context system
Looks like it would have been to Conker what Tooie was to Kazooie - a refined, and ambitious all-around follow-up. The only part that sounds meh is Conker swearing more. Though he said he changed things so who knows. He was fine in Live and Reloaded. I actually prefer that Conker.

Will this game be considered one of the first masterpieces in videogame history, just like today we admire a bach fugue?

>inb4 generic SEETHING reply
Stay mad

I wouldn't say sotn is the first. It is definitely maybe peak castlevania title that is both polished and accessible. There might be a technically better castlevanias but not as many people have played them.

Other possible first would be Mario 3, Sonic 2, tmnt arcade, Y's I II.

And if those dont count, though not retro, I would say Nier is a masterpiece. It takes the platform of gaming and crafts a narrative that impacts the player with both an overall moral and emotional response.
I agree.

It's been a stupid urban myth for ages.
One of MJ's collaborators worked on it and tossed in a few homages and people jumped to the retarded conclusion that MJ was involved.
That fucking song predated Sonic 3 by more than a decade. Fuck off
exaclty, thats why he included it in Sonic 3
I have the Sonic classic collection on original DS, is that accurate to the original experience?
Very likely.

No. Runs like ass.
