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.

Not worth the cost of batteries.
>he didn't grease the drive
I just got one what should I look out for? What games do you guys recommend?
That’s just what Dreamcast drives sound like even when they were brand new. My Dreamcast sounds the same now as it did on launch day when I took it out of the box.
Dreamcast drives are not greased with anything, factory new. I greased mine and the noise went down.

This week in stupid effort for small details: fancy 3D rotation for projectile/attack origin. Possible thanks to KeksDose's libeye library, just like the accurate cursor projection.

Instantly made the gun feel a lot more "there" in the game world imo.
I really love how Arcane Dimensions by Simon O'Callaghan became the defacto standard for quake modding.
Damn, that looks cool, anon.
that's legal? neat
Thanks. It will be really useful for spawning smoke clouds when normal guns fire too.

Both are very aesthetic.
I've done all secrets in like an hour and a half. Orang utan Gang has terrible secret designs, not to mention that last missable secret. Fuck you, Cranky.
DKC1 because it's what I've been playing. Never had it as a kid. I can see why Miyamoto would have been bitter about it, seeing fresh new faces making a mechanically sound and simple game with top-notch production the way Nintendo proper would've done ten years prior. And at a time when the latter was diverting from performance and fidelity as a hardware focus in favor of "features."

>port was amazing
I'm sad this fact has gotten diluted by the sands of time what with all the wannabe-arcade purists who obviously grew up well after that time. Overcoming slowdown is as much a part of adapting to the game as the meta itself with how bad it is on CPS1. The SNES has it too but at least it's consistent, and Genesis ought to be the standard.

Why would the princess invite them over for a picnic when she has a huge fuck castle?

She obviously doesn't want to spend all day in a damp-ass fucking castle.
Damn, I wish I got invited to her huge fuck castle.
Super Mario RPG featured Toad Chancellor, implying that Mushroom Kingdom has a parliament or an advanced government cabinet. In recent games however, Mushroom Kingdom looks much less organized.
They have a peaceful turtle-free ethnostate. They don't need much governance.
They only try to appease the few humanoids who show up so they won't stomp on them.
Peach is the only one who won't leave, so they humor her by letting her live her fantasy of being Disney Princess of her own Magical Kingdom.
>she has a huge fuck castle

The "fuck castle" is probably having too big of an orgy at the moment so they have to take their picnic outside.

I finally got the Sega Genesis Mini, Now I just need to add more games to it.
Is the C64 mini or Neo-Geo Mini worth getting?
Also kinda hyped for the TurboGrafx-16 mini.

>Why buy it? Shouldn’t you wait until 2020
If your referring to the TG-16 yes I'll have to wait for next March but I'm highly anticipating it.
I kinda don't like how the mini-consoles are smaller than controllers. One of (but not only) the reasons why I have full-sized originals. But maybe, maybe I'll get the TG16 Mini.
I was unsure of the $100 price for the TG-16, but with 57 games and 32 of them being Japanese PC Engine releases. Seems werf.

This game is worth existing for the fictional internet alone.

For those of you who were actually alive and conscious back in 1994, what was your initial reaction to Sonic 3?

>and conscious

First I was amazed, then I loved it. Then I realized that even though it was a great game it had lost something that Sonic 1 and 2 had but I'm not sure what it was.
Could it have been the soulless visuals/music and speed-over-platforming level design?

It looks like they did finally release the Alex at some point. If I remember right he was supposed to be paired with an aborted PC release
there are minor story changes. nothing significant.

the audio fidelity is better on ps1. the cutscenes have been redone. re-recorded the voice acting. spells are named in combat on the ps1 game.

the devs of the game considered the ps1 version closer to their initial vision for the game over the sega cd version. both games are excellent though. ps1 is a bit easier so go with that. but check out the sega cd sometime. it's awesome. some prefer it. not sure why. it was my first (played it in'94!) but still prefer the ps1. avoid the gba and psp versions. they're garbage.
they never released the alex. victor ireland (the head guy at working designs) has two of them. they're both prototypes that never made it into production. he said he would part with them but it would have to be a lot of money.

What /vr/ game would you say has the best OST for you personally? I think Rock n Roll Racing on the Sega had the best pure soundtrack, in terms of how much SOUL the Sega chip put out, but when it comes to best all time song, it's Stage 1 from Space Harrier.

Pure Kino

Chrono Cross
Super Castlevania IV
CV4's soundtrack is good for falling asleep to, but it's not very memorable.
The only tracks that I could see fit for "falling asleep" would be the cave, and maybe the ending theme.
The other slower-paced tracks, such as the waterfalls, or the intro music are too tense and dark to be comfy and fall asleep.
Most of the rest of the tracks, I don't really see it, how could I fall asleep while something like Chandelier or Forest of Monsters plays?
Library also starts very comfy, but then also turns pretty hectic and darker.

Hey boys I'm looking to actually finish some final fantasies and want to know, which release version is the best for each game?

I was pretty sure I read in an interview that they had purposefully left out the connection to avoid fan favor, but I honestly can't find it right now. So take it with a grain of salt.

>Apply this patch over Restored patched version
The Psx version of FF1 is just the NES but better.
Had a friend who claimed to have beaten the NES Final Fantasy when he was 12 or so. I believe him because I've always known him to do things like that. That had to test his patience.

Reminder this shit always gets a Black Friday sale, might as well wait. Last year it was 20% off
that already went on sale for 11.11 sale. It's the chink sale because they know it takes a number of weeks to receive shipments
I was referring to only the knock offs of course
Does it have a rtc?
wow sure worth paying the $150 for a HDMI mod.
