This board is for the discussion of classic, or "retro" games, including consoles, computer games, arcade games (including pinball) and any other forms of video games. Retro gaming means platforms launched in 2001 and earlier, and official game titles for those platforms released no later than December 2007 (homebrew console games made after this date will be permitted). The Microsoft Xbox, Nintendo GameCube, Nintendo Game Boy Advance, and Sony PlayStation 2 will now be considered "retro".

Thinking of making a savegame editor now the checksum had been reverse engineered. Only problem at the moment is besides some obvious stuff at the start and end, theres just a huge blank space of flags.

>Absolutely *has* to play the original NES version on a CRT or it doesn't count

And you call me the autist?


I just like games, man. I'm old enough to have played these games on actual hardware and shitty CRT TVs, and I don't care to do that for the rest of my life. For the last nearly 20 years I've just played a lot of them on emulators because it's more convenient. I care about the games, I don't care to forever chase a childhood experience I'll never have again because it's no longer 1989 and I'm no longer 6 years old.
Not to mention that in order to have the screen fit on that handheld they had cut two rows of pixels. It's literally not even the same graphics as the original.
They should have made a Fusion sequel right away

Play Shenmue with Japanese voices for the best experience
17 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
You very obviously don't understand what Shenmue is, or wanted to be. It's not a bunch of set pieces you run through to see an ending, check completed and then hop into the next game to clear some "backlog" like playing games is a fucking chore list.
It's a game that you relax and enjoy playing for possibly multiple months just doing whatever you want to for however long you play it that particular day while still keeping up with the overarching story every now and then.
That's what you don't understand. Shenmue is a pretty atmospheric game and it achieves it thanks to the small pleasures that you find in the day-to-day life of its world. You end up enjoying the everyday things its world offers. Why do you think they make you wait for the bus?
You don't like. OK. But thank God not all the games are call of duty.
Honestly the JP voice acting was pretty bad as well.

Is there an easy way to do this for the PC version? (that is, Shenmue I & II on Steam) I'm assuming the game either has it built-in to the localized version of the game, or a fan-made patch is needed, but that it's possible.

I take it as a sign that Capcom really, really, REALLY, didn't give a shit about the story in those games and if even the devs didn't care, why should I.
I usually do the spider first just to grab the leg parts, and if I don't wipe out on him I can use his web to get the buster parts in the owl's level next. I forgot what I do after that.
Part of me wonders if the insistence on Sigma was a marketing gimmick to make it easier sell more toys and shit. Each game had a new Sigma body which meant it was easier to sell more new cards and figures based on a character the kids had already grown to love (or love to hate).
Sigma's voice acting is 10/10.

I think he's just a legacy version of Wily. He's always behind everything no matter what the game says at the beginning, and shows up in a shiny new suit of armor to try to kill our heroes.

For 3D games, heavenly controller.
If the Gaycube is as universally loved as you claim it is, then that would be reflected in sales figures for its generation.
Are all zoomers this fucking retarded?
20M isn't decent for a games console, as apposed to a DVD Player disguised as a console? Just look at the software sales of the GameCube, NGC owners actually bought software.

You also need to be aware that Nintendo made money on both hardware as well as the most popular games that they own the IPs of. Compare that to the PS2, which was a third party machine.

The GameCube was successful when you look at Sales, revenue and actual profit margin, instead of just blindly looking at sales numbers.

Stop embarrassing yourself, dude.
without the Handhelds revenue, your favorite childhood brand would have withdrawn from hardware production (similar to Sega).
The original No Games Machine. You had Smash Bros and that was about all worth owning.

Best shmup console outside of maybe the PS1 in terms of raw exclusives. Yes even the PS2. Even the 360, which was all girly cave crap and 1 decent Raiden game.

You WILL hook up your DC to your TV and you WILL show off your favorite shooter. Emulators accepted.

This thread is dedicated to discussing the various fan missions of the Thief series whether it's Dark Project or Deadly Shadows. Pic related is A Midsummer Night's Heist from the One Million Unit contest.
348 replies and 67 images omitted. Click here to view.
I just started playing it again and I don't even remember the first mission existing, my memory is definitely fuzzy. I think I can make a good argument about the stories feeling disconnected with Thief 1 building into Thief 2 a lot better than Thief 1 and 2 build into Thief 3, and that events could have come to a head a lot better with references all the way back to Thief 1 that are more than just a refernce to events but show events in a different light. in that sense Thief 3 feels vestigial compared to Thief 1 and Thief 2 feeling connected.
I'm going to have to replay the game to actually validate this though, since I don't remember it very well, it's kind of shit.
works for me, anythings better than steampunk
the only steampunky thing i can think of in thief is the fact that the Children of Karras run on boilers
literally the only reason i remember the first mission is because i tried so many times as a kid to get into DS and kept dropping it partway though the first mission
i must've tried like 4 or 5 times to play damn mission, it took me like 10 years and the sneaky upgrade to finally push through the rest of the game
it wasn't worth it

I love San Andreas, but they did make the game way easier than past games:

>VC: Sunshine Autos only becomes an asset after finding a list of cars with no assistance. SA: you steal cars for Wang Cars in scripted missions where they tell you exactly where to find them
>SA: the final mission has so much health and armor bonuses and the second shooting section can't be failed because the enemies can't inflict enough damage to you.
>VC: Assets cost hundreds of thousands to buy. SA: Only one asset costs money the rest are free
>VC: Races cost money to enter. SA: races are free
>III-VC: you respect people with assault rifles. They will kill you in seconds if they get too close. SA: Enemies are a joke who can't hit anything
>III-VC: missions are more loose and allow players to solve missions how they want. SA: missions are heavily scripted and you have to use very specific vehicles and do a very specific sequence of events and use specific weapons

I found it tough but then again I’m shit at games
>VC: Sunshine Autos only becomes an asset after finding a list of cars with no assistance. SA: you steal cars for Wang Cars in scripted missions where they tell you exactly where to find them
OP, you arent comparing the same type of missions here. Sunshine Autos is VC's import/export garage missions. San Andreas has unscripted "bring this car back" missions down at the docks in San Fierro.

And its arguably tougher than VC because some of the vehicles don't spawn in SF and need to be driven across the entire state.
I never get the meme with the train mission, i have never find it hard but people act like its Ninja Gaiden or something.
The learn to fly mission on the other side almost filter me.
It's not tough if you pay attention to whether or not shots are landing.

Flight school ain't so bad for me. I can do it on the keyboard. I think I got all golds. Just gotta be patient with the game.
I agree. I think most people tend to just drive and hold the shoot button with out keeping far enough from the train for the shots to land.

Learning to fly well puts you ahead of almost everyone in gta online. When I used to play that I would always vote for air races because nobody knows how to handle plains and choppers.

Would it even run on a Retron 5? It doesn't even run on real hardware. WM are publicly stating that you need to buy a Mega Drive 2 (The audio is one of the main selling points and the target version is the one with the worse audio) for the game to actually run properly.
Oh, the "seethe" guy again... You actually do the same, asshole... Remember, sooner or later it will be dumped ;)

In an era where software companies are so fucking retarded with there own archives, that they scrap the source code with the rest of the e-waste .
OR, edit the original material to pander to woke twitter shits who never even played the original, much less will buy the remake.
OR, companies that go up in smoke and have there carcasses harvested by soulless holding companies who will perpetually hold the licenses until they can triple their money selling it to a larger media company.
AND, when software developers will bitch and moan like an impotent cunt about piracy, then buy the buccaneering bastards patches and emulators so they can sell there titles without having to do the work themselves.

Your points have as much current relevance as a phone-booth.
TL:DR: Don't like piracy, then don't pirate.
