N64 had Elmo and exclusive Rugrats shovelware. Both systems had baby-tier shitty games. Irrelevant because nobody is playing that trash. Look at the games people go back and play/were playing at the time and I think the PS1s most popular titles are geared more toward an older audience than the N64s most popular titles.

Games like Parasite Eve, GTA, Xenogears, Silent Hill, MGS, Tenchu, Medal of Honor, Twisted Metal, RE 1&3, etc

I used it from the get go and ended up disliking how autisticly over-complicated the game was, so I tried to go back to vanilla but I'd have to re-install the whole game I think. So I just said "fuck it" and stopped playing.

Fighting games were shit on the N64
>b-b-but Smash Brothers
Would be a 6/10 on a console with Tekken 3, and that god awful N64 controller was just not fit for fighters.

JRPGs were shit and nearly nonexistent on the N64
>b-b-but Paper Mario
Would be a 7/10 on a console with the FF trilogy, Chrono Cross, Xenogears, Breath of Fire 3 and 4, etc. Seriously, the amount of them is massive on PS1

SHMUPS were nonexistent on the N64
>B-b-but... uhm...
AHHAHAHAHAHAHAHHHAHAHAH OH MY GOD WHAT A PIECE OF SHIT - ONE OF THE MOST BASIC GENRES THAT EVEN THE SUPER NINTENDO COULD DO

If there's one place the N64 actually crushes it, it's FPSes. PS1 is abysmal when it comes to them. The fact that one of the best FPSes is a bad version of the N64 version of TWINE, then you know you got problems. Hell, FPSes on N64 make Dreamcast FPSes kinda embarrassed, they're that good.

Hey /vr/, what's a good price to pay for a bundle that includes a Genesis, Sega CD and 32X all together? I'm looking at several different listings for such a bundle, some of them missing the cables, another one the Genesis and 32X work but the CD is unable to be tested, and another they don't know if the 32X works.... I just wanna know what a good price should be for these three so I can know if I find a good deal or not.

There are literally no good games on 32X that aren't ports. Even Knuckles' Chaotix is only good for the first 1 or 2 hours worth of gameplay, after which it becomes ever more apparent how much the vertically focused level design ruins Sonic's fast horizontally-scrolling gameplay.
>>
I kinda wanted to get a 32X just for the novelty of it, but I really just can't justify it. Especially when it's a pain in the ass to track down all the necessary cables. And it doesn't match the Model 1 Genesis I own, and I'd need to get a new Genesis RGB SCART cable because the 32X uses the Model 2 output config.

One day as a side project to tinker on, I'd like to pick up a Model 2 and a 32X just to try out doing an all-in-one mod.

>I am pretty sure it can max output at 640*480 at 30FPS.

the resolution outputs at 256x240p, 341x240p, 256x480i and 341x480i. Not 640x480. One of the main selling points is that the machine can display clean looking video at 30fps. To be honest the video quality for the machine is better than what the PS1 or Sega Saturn could do. The 3DO has good video output too. But, the PCFX was meant to be an anime-gaming machine.

Clock Tower is one of my favorite gems.
The grim ambient, the feeling of hopelessness and art style worked well together and turned it into a classic.

It's pretty sad that they abandoned the pixel art style for that half assed 3d in the PSX sequel. It just wasn't the same.
Why haven't we seen any proper spiritual successor? I would have loved to see more of the same.

If you enjoy Echo Night, and perhaps even if you don't, please check out Echo Night 2, aslo for PSX and now with an English translation patch that is 100% complete.
I spent a couple summers ago with Echo Night 2, and it is hands down the best game I have played in years.
After I cleared all of the endings in EN2, I played Echo Night. EN2 is vastly superior. I have not played 3, but I don't expect it or any other game to ever top 2.
I did find a few parts of EN2 genuinely scary, and that in itself is a feat. But the atmosphere and story are what really makes it shine.

Are there more games like Buzz Aldrin's Race Into Space? I just love the level of detail and immersion as well as the style. Probably one of the best simulations I have ever played.

I cant think of much retro. Theres a few space sims that are newer and you can sit in or control most everything that's been launched, and even a lot of specific historical missions.

Hi /vr/ I never played in my life Civilization.

I heard the III is the best followed by the IV, can you confirm this?

Also, do you prefer a version of the game in particular, some mods to recommend?

Thanks guys!

>You are, again, evading each of the issues and carefully omitting others
In every post, I've answered as much as I can within 4chan's 2000 character limit.

>the tyranny of Nazi Germany was aimed at the disenfranchised
>violent suppressions of dissidents in German-occupied territories
You're kinda evading the issue of whether Germany was a police state here, because neither I nor anyone else I know claims that the German government extended the same rights to foreigners and people in occupied territories as to the people the government actually claimed to be its subjects. That's anything but unique, it's not like everyone living in the British East Indies was given all the rights of the Magna Carta.
The Jews were indeed singled out as a threat to the German population after the horror of the Jewish-led Bavarian Soviet Republic (now there's a tyrannical police state for you!). The goal of denying them civil rights was to get them to leave the country, and they were allowed to take all their stuff with them (whereas an ethnic German emigrant would have to forfeit upwards of 90% of his possessions upon leaving). Look up the Haavara Agreement.

>who were actively disarmed
... after a Jewish terrorist shot a German diplomat, yes. Funny how YOU accuse others of "speaking the truth partly."

>Cited multiple times in mainstream academia
You're merely appealing to authority here, and not providing a valid primary source.

also, it's interesting that you dismiss the entire point of the video based on the host's political opinions, rather than looking into the historical facts and evidence mentioned by his guests.
I don't think I'll be able to change your mind on anything, given that you don't seem to care too much about facts and merely look for someone you perceive to be in a position of authority to tell you what to think.

>historical facts and evidence
>this B A S E D author of books based on flimsy evidence, not supported by any sort of peer review, and only pushed through by a publication house that hosts almost exclusively books for Nazi fetishists is a better source than anyone else
Oh yeah, technically she "is" a Polish-American historian, but it's obvious by her lack of notoriety anywhere except for a sketchy publishing house that relishes in a very specific type of publication, or acknowledgment in anyone worth listening to, that her books are the furthest possible claim from a "credible source". And that's absolutely rich considering that you're accusing ME of appeal to authority! Why else would you bother listing all of those obscure no-names by their lot in life?

Oh, and don't pretend that the act of banning guns in 1938 was somehow completely divorced by systemic denial of civil rights to the Jews since 1935, and that the assassination wasn't a convenient pretext to move on with continuing that process.

You are asking me for excellent sourcing at every step and then pulling out the most appeal-to-authority garbage that you possibly could have. Don't bother responding; this time I certainly won't.

I've played 1 through IV. IV is the best of these but I also think 1 is indispensable.

Sure there is left wing shit in the civilopedia and some of the game mechanics. (Like in 4, global warming will turn the world completely into desert for now reason at all unless you take very odd measures to suppress the mechanic). It's not too much to deal with unless you're a sensitive person, and I think it's offset by the basic fact that the human's best strategy for overcoming the hardest difficulty is to be a brutal, opportunistic, slave-driving military imperialist tech broker at pretty much any stage.

Every single time i emulate any N64 game he's just smiling, but it got worse, every single time i played Mario kart 64 i could just hear him say his lines, even when i didnt select him, which i never did he's shit, but i learned later that he WAS really saying his lines when not selected, this has scared me. So last week i decided to check out into buying a original 1987 Nintendo 64, not used and still in box, great deal right? Wrong. that mother fucker. i went and first played Paper mario, but the VERY FIRST TOAD i talked to, its lines were so different, it just kept saying "I'm here and always will be." over and over again, for like 20 lines.... maybe i was going crazy? yeah sure, until mario kart, oh i remember this fateful sunday WAAYYY to well, he just kept saying it, since the start..... i dont know if anyone will be reading this but Please, if you know someway, ANYWAY out of this i will be glad...... Please, he always sees me, and i cant not hear him, my hands are bloody and im missing a finger....
