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".

I have a Dreamcast and I plan on getting a Saturn soon. Should I get a MODE, or a GDEMU clone and a Fenrir?
>inb4 get 2 MODEs
42 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
get a satiator and a GDE clone, then tell terrasoi niggers and their shitty overpriced buggy closed firmware update trash to fuck off
or better yet wait for any of the several better DC ODEs being worked on and burn a few discs while you wait, or dare I say it, finish a game or two on the saturn
GDEmu still doesnt support every version of Dreamcast like MODE. Becareful what you buy.
And satiator is still $200 so is not much cheaper than MODE.
MODE will work in both your Saturn and your dc so it's the budget option. Who cares if some Chinese game you can't understand doesn't work due to some minor fluke or limitation.
You guys need to search better for gdemu clones. I just grabbed one a few weeks ago for $75.

Ignore this retard OP. Mode and GDEMU are identical and you would never know what is used if you booted a game up without saying for a retard like I am calling out here.

get GDEMU clone and Satiator. Fenrir had too many games it had issues loading and working with.

Can I play System Shock 2 before 1?

SS2 genuinely plays worse than SS1. as soon as you learn the interface for ss1 you're flying. SS2 physics are fucking horrible
>SS2 genuinely plays worse than SS1
>open game FPS game
>don't have free control over your camera
Enhanced Edition certainly improves it by some degree, but that's certainly going to be subjective about 'plays worse'. For an older dungeon crawler that makes more sense and it wouldn't seem out of place. But System Shock is not really an actual dungeon crawler and is somewhere in the middle of dungeon crawler and first person shooter. So the controls just seem weird and unintuitive in my opinion.
Nope. Can't do it. Don't care about your faggot opinion of me. Give me a version without cancer controls and a viewport that isn't AIDS and we'll fucking talk. Will not argue or discuss further.
You can, but why would you want to? 1 is so much better.

>m-muh zoomers!
This is retarded. I'm 22 and I enjoy retro video games. Many of you would even say I have good taste. My brother on the other hand is nearly 30 and can't play tomb raider or system shock 2, to name a few examples, because they're "clunky" for him. In my experience millennials are just as averse to retro video games if not more so than zoomers are, hence why you see so many 30-something year old journos shitting on the recent system shock remake for being "archaic".

Pic unrelated.

lol? You idiot. If that was the case specific things we talk about here would be easy to say "you are a gen x". They never are.
No....? No they are not.
NTA he means circumstantial experience not memory of that experience
I don't understand the argument. Are you saying I need to have been 8 in 1987 to enjoy Castlevania 1 on NES? Because that's patently false.
Good, glad to hear you're not a faggot. Now, continue that trend by never bringing up that you're a zoomer again (especially as an OP).

I'd like to directly contradict OP and state that Grand Theft Auto (1997) is in fact a great game, particularly the London mission packs.

Truly infuriating. I think its the fact they give you the fake illusion of choice. But doesn't actually matter.

I don't know what I'm doing. Controls are unintuitive. I triggered scissor guy, hid in bathroom, he nicholson'd the door and killed me. Reloaded, same situation except he fucked off instead. I don't even get what I've done differently, is it scripted or random? Tips?

Git gud. But seriously it's a pretty simple game and pretty entertaining and engaging compared to the average point-and-click adventure.

Anyway, maybe try the PS1 version or the recent-ish patch that adds mouse support to the original; it may help.
>Although the game refers to it as Jennifer's health, the color of the background where her face is shown changes to represent her current fear level. Blue means she is in a calm state, while yellow means she is startled, orange meaning she is alarmed, and finally red, where she will begin to panic. In red, she is more likely to be attacked during a direct confrontation with Bobby. Additionally, while running away from Bobby, there is a chance Jennifer might trip over her feet, making her vulnerable if Bobby is close by and lowering her health by one level. To recover Jennifer's health, the player can make Jennifer crouch by not moving her.
>Controls are unintuitive
Nigga it's a point n click game
You're probably not hitting the panic/struggle button when he goes in for the hit. Whenever you see Jennifer's portrait start flashing, you need to be mashing whichever button that is. If your health/fear is lower, the struggle might fail. Otherwise you go down a health/fear state, knock him down and run away.
Source: Almost beat the game as a kid before getting stuck at a forced panic section and realized there was a button to defend myself
And yeah a couple things are random like a key location, a few rooms can be swapped, some jumpscares/puzzles as well.

>Winners don't do drugs
>But arcade games are too hard and 99 % of people end up losing at them, which makes them the opposite of winners

That explains my drug use, I never could beat Simpsons Arcade without putting in minimum a few bucks by the end
Winners don't use more than 1 coin

retarded take OP
nothing good comes from drug use

psychedelics might show you parts of the map, but you still have to follow the map

arcades used to be a common spot for drug dealings
Then heed Matthew 6:5 and trust the process, preachy

There's one with a turbo VR6 and AWD making about 800 horse making the rounds on YouTube. Think the guy is outtake Florida. Same Chassis as the Golf or the Jetta IIRC

Been trying to play this game on actual hardware with a burnt disc, so far I'm just getting stuck on the scene where you go to the abandoned factory. Sucks because I was getting super into the story when reading some of the logs at the computer :(
Have you tried burning another disk at the lowest possible write speed?
I'm having a similar issue right now with Policenauts (PS1 translation). Every time I try to watch a BBC news report it gets stuck trying to read the disk. So far I can avoid doing that and watch the clips on YouTube but I'm sure I'll eventually run into an unskippable scene so I've just stopped playing for now.
I'm looking into getting a disc drive that supports lower write speeds but all the ones I can find only advertise their highest write speed.
I always burn at 1x speed, I use tdks and Sony cdr's too. also I use redump roms too and they work on emulators but not on hardware. Starting to feel like it's something to do with the model 2 mega CD I have... Also playstation 1 lasers are notorious for skipping on fmvs when they start to poop out
Oh I'm using a PS2, don't know if they have the same issues with their lasers.
Nah. When you really look at how movies are made, you see that auteurs and films made with a singular vision are actually the exception, not the rule . Very often, the director won’t even have the final say on how the film will be edited, and editing is as essential to filmmaking as anything else. In the case of Blade Runner, Scott clearly did not shape what the final product was, or else he wouldn’t have felt the need to recut it so many times to create new products more in line with his vision.

why is quake 64 so fruity looking
The "spam colored lighting so it looks modern" school of game design.
wtf did you do where's the soulification-blur?
>Led Generic Weapons
Just a decent almost vanilla set of weapons
>Dark Passenger
Tilted angle weapons that look decent and has a necronomicon you can charge to cast a buff with. Runs like shit with certain wads though for some reason so it's a bit broken.
>final doomer
A bunch of vanilla-like reskins with some small differences to their balance.
Also tilted angle. Less pretty IMO but fun to use anyway.
>High Noon Drifter
Western style and pretty darn nice.
Actually an overhaul with quite a lot of new weapons that changes balance a lot. Adds classes and upgradeable weapons that can be turned into other weapons. Pretty fun, but not so vanilla. Works well with a few other addons too like the Zeta shop and/or DRLA monsters.

Everyone knows about the ship of harkinian Ocarina of Time port, but it doesn't seem like many know about the Link to the Past port. It has a number of enhancements, including native widescreen. there's even a launcher for it that does everything for you and is capable of self updating.

i will play this, ty
Would it be possible to add more than 4 hotkeys for items? The number keys plus the F1-F12 keys would total 22, does the inventory even have that many slots? (I just checked, it only has 20, if items were automatically assigned hotkeys when picked up you could play through the entire game without needing to use the menu a single time lol) One of the things that has turned me off from the Zelda games is the tedious as hell constant swapping of items in the inventory. I've always felt it would have been much better as a PC game.

Best version of this?
Probably DOS as it has multiplayer and more music for the campaign levels, though I believe the European revision of the PS1 version has said extra music as well.

Game was developed in the UK lmao

What games do you remember to be different than they were when you replayed them?

Wait a sec. I recognize this way of talking. You're the faggot I had an argument about the "The" in "The House of the Dead" last year, aren't you? You're still fucking at it?
You know what? You're absolutely right. These are things I find to be odd & out of place. Especially the cover art to Rambo, it just blows my mind that they choose the green shirt instead of the iconic topless one.
Parallel universes are not impossible, the merging of them or travel between them would be the impossible part especially without FTL travel, two different universes merging would cause causality and space-time to rupture destroying the both of them, as it is now, the only way one would be able to touch another universe or receive any information from one is via Astral projection, which people often unconsciously do in their dreams and memories from the version of yourself in that other reality, can be transferred as you dream of being them.
cite your source for all this bullshit you fucking schizo
Faggot your brain leaks DMT during REM sleep. They're hallucinations.
