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".

Why the fuck do old people love pinball so much? I want to go to an arcade and play some actual games but arcades in the US are like 70% pinball.

Well that looks weird.
No but it is clearly way more prevalent in these hobbies that appeal to dorky ocd loners for obvious reasons i guess.

heres the article

the shmup community for example is littered with trannys and pedos and openly so.
Thanks for the link, anon. Looks like both gameplay work together really well. It's a shame that it's a simplistic game and a simplistic pinball. I can only dream of a Shinobi hybrid.
Shmups generals are possibly the worst thing on /vr/. Usually full of edrama or talking about replay videos. It's either people who keep replaying the same game they already completed over and over for score, or "fans" that don't really play at all, just want to be part of their community and servers.

c64 assembly coding is really fun too and a good introduction to assembly when you're ready for it.

It's much easier to wrap your head around the c64's assembly than something more modern (and more convoluted) like x86 assembly and if you've played programming-games like Exapunks, Shenzhen or TIS-100 by Zachtronics, then c64 assembly is the logical next step.
You don't just click 'compile .exe'?
I dont know the point of learning c64 assembly when i can make c64 like games with game maker studio though.

The game's notorious for its retarded translation. This might be a bit fucky, but there's a translation mod that makes the game amazing. It adds a map and QoL improvements, but they're optional.
You can use something like lunar IPS to patch your Castlevania II rom. It's worth it.
I'd say just drop it for now and go straight to III if you just want to play some Castlevania. It's a prequel, you play as Simon's ancestor.

Fantastic art direction but the gameplay and music sucks.
Learn your history you ignorant rube.
I played the game on original hardware from start to finish. I've never experienced any framerate drops.
Are you sure?
The platforming part is good but I loved the mix of the first one so to me that one is better.

I just played this for the first time in 2020.

What was it like playing it when it came out?
I think heard it was revolutionary when it came out, what exactly was that blew peoples mind?
I would say it looks and plays pretty nice for such an old game, probably would have guessed it's from around 2002 but not 98, so was it the graphics?

>Did you play it, or play through and beat it?
I finished it.

>but I'm curious what you thought about the game.
Well it was pretty good overall and most stuff still holds up today, especially what >>7127849 said.

However there were also a few things that left a bad taste in my mouth.
One problem was that I had to reload the game several times to understand some dialog ingame, the background noises were too loud with no setting to fix it, sounds like a minor thing but ruined the immersion a lot.
And generally the game had a little too much crawling through tubes and sewers and shit, I mean it does make sense of course as you are trying to find a way to escape but it's just not that fun.
Also had crashes and some bugs unfortunately, one teleporter in Xen broke so I had to reload an old save for example.

It's hard to judge such an old game, like I said it does still hold up mostly, graphics are fine, AI is awesome and surprised me many times, gameplay is okay, level design was interesting they tried a lot of things but not all parts were fun.
The story telling was pretty good at the start, kinda felt like a scientist myself lol, but I feel like it shit the bed really fast, I mean suddenly there is an army trying to kill everyone associated with the project and most scientist I met ingame are rather indifferent to the whole situation for some reason.
I mean there are aliens running amok and the military is after your head as well and the scientists are like "oh a fellow scientist whats up bro"
>what exactly was that blew peoples mind?
That you were going to work in a tram
muh doomkerino

You can thank Half Life for Counterstrike, which started as a free mod.

Black Mesa, the remake using the source engine, is very good as well, and does a much better job at depicting Xen, which seemed lazy and tacked on in the original.

What are /vr/'s thoughts on this game? I'm currently playing through this game after blitzing through the first one which I enjoyed a lot. I had high hopes given DKC2's status in the fandom but I'm not particularly enjoying it. It kind of feels overly long and bloated with gimmicks. Reminds me a lot of Sonic 3 & Knuckles actually, which coincidentally has a similar degree of universal fan approval.

Steve Wiebe? He's innocent. Here's the greentext short version that you can trust because he told me the deal:
>be steve and billy
>get asked to do bullshit "documentary"
>say ok
That's it. There's some real things that happened in there and the facts got turned around and changed in many places concerning everyone. Steve's talent is real, though and he is not in cahoots in Billy, in fact, the real friendship that wasn't shown in the doc, was fake. Ask Steve yourself and ask others who know.

He's cheating another gamer out of their due and claiming a feat that someone else already did, again. And this time he's using a different anniversary machine, not original, so the glitch is that the kill screen can be passed.

The doc was nearly 15 years ago, lots of shit has happened since then. Somebody get this moron up to speed.
That's because Billy is the good guy, and the game's protagonist.

I don’t care if it wasn’t in the magazine Steve Kent said it was. I still believe it because it sounds like something Miyamoto would say.
