This board is for the discussion of classic, or "retro" games. Retro gaming means consoles, computer games, arcade games (including pinball) and any other forms of video games on platforms launched in 1999 and earlier. With the release of the 8th generation of consoles, the Sega Dreamcast will now be considered "retro", though the remainder of the sixth generation (Xbox, PS2, GameCube) will not.

Any other games like this?

Pretty sure the Wii U version was always or at least more commonly bundled together.
It's based on it, but not what I'd consider a remake. It's about as much as Kirby's Blowout Blast is also a 'remake' of Kirby's Dream Land.
what makes the gamecube/wii games worth playing over the GBA titles

I'm sure that it's a good game, but I swear it has the ugliest art style I've ever seen in a game.
I'll probably still play it, though.
Only in the combat animations and the overworld sprites. The rest is gorgeous. The characters were designed by the Ghost in the Shell artist for crying out loud

Have you considered it wasn't designed for unlawful pirates who expect it to manage all 748 various dumps and hacks of link to the past?
It used to be garbage until this year. Now it's all I use. It just werks. To think autists work on that for free and brainlets like me get to use it for 0 cost. The days we live in.

Before this year it would take minimum of hours of troubleshooting to get set up, then a few days in x core would cause crashes or the menu would crash at x submenu etc etc but it's great now

The literal goddamn person who said "sex is a social construct" recanted their IRL shitpost.
Transvestites and transsexuals are different and both have been around in various forms for a long time. The internet has provided a forum (as it has for many things) that didn't exist before which majes their existence much more apparent.
I mean considering Mileena's whole thing is that she's a genetic fuckup it's plausible that she's got some big sausage tucked in there isn't it?

The quality of the threads does seem to be dipping lately. There’s been an influx of younger posters and with them they’ve brought a bevy of shitty tendencies.
>prototype featured Mario characters
>several Mario staff worked on it, including Shigeru Miyamoto (who was barely involved with the other SMB2)
>conversion to SMB2 was worked on by the SMB3 team (one of Mario’s sprites was recycled into SMB3 and Princess Toadstool has the same sprite)
>was rereleased in Japan as SMB USA
>was included in their Super Mario All-Stars
>was later rereleased AGAIN on the Satellaview with new cutscene graphics
>is part of the Super Mario Advance series
>Shyguys, Bob-ombs, Snifits and more return in later mainline titles
but muh diduknow dick
cope harder burger gamecuck
SMB2 is the lost levels
"SMB2" (doki doki panic with mario characters) was only released in north america and PAL regions
>You prefer the easiest Mario game?

The easiest Mario game is either Super Mario Land or Super Mario Land 2. Leaning towards 1 since I once beat it so drunk that I was playing it mainly to stay conscious.

/v/: the thread
Dragon Warrior 1&2 are pretty bleh. 3 was when the series started to get good.

yikes. cope. seethe. cringe. rent free. have sex. dilate.
I liked 1 and 2, but I've been having a hard time getting into 3. I don't really like having to manage so many party members.
>jr high me during summer in mid nineties
>setup Dragon Warrior on shit 13"crt I had for years
>setup broadcast TV on slightly larger shit crt I just got from grandparents
>grinded through that game while watching syndicated daytime TV for half the summer
Those old rpg's left a lot to the imagination, and the grinding that was part of the adventure definitely does not hold up today. And it wasn't just leveling up, it was searching for what the fuck to do next.
Still though, won't deny I have good memories from it.

So uh, what are you guys gonna do in 10-20 years when all the PCBs in your old ass cartidges and all the components in your old systems die? One day all of these retro games and systems will be gone and you will be forced to buy repros.

Still not using LARP correctly.
I'm already in the process of selling everything. I played the originals in their time, and experienced the real thing. Needing anything beyond flash carts, and emulation is autism.
If this stuff is stored properly it will likely outlive me and my children.
u mad summer?
I'm going to upload my own consciousness along with all my games into a supercomputer and live forever playing them in a simulated reality.

Or, maybe I already did it, and you're all just the NPCs in my retro heaven.

No shit, does that actually work? Why would it load anything at all, shouldn't the game just stop once you swap discs?

Psx was always really interesting about that sort of thing. Monster Rancher games had you inserting your random CDs to generate your new monsters, then swapping back to the disc. It even had unique monsters if you had certain albums, like Raggae Plant from a Bob Marley album

Switch to the Japanese language if you dare!?
Did it and blew my load.
After buying the pi, the controllers, a case and then the sd card you would end up spending more that the cost of the mini console. The mini console is also better because the emulator is better than lag ports you get on the pi. The cost is also cheap, less than a days pay for the experience of getting a brand new official classic console. I will get one later because after the snes and nes mini fiasco where they were limited but then very easy get even now, I predict no trouble finding this console.
You can't honestly believe people don't see right through this shill post. Just read the thread, everybody knows the Gen mini has lag. The jig is up.
