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".

Did your community have an inexplicable love for an obscure and obscure game?
Pic related, Brazilians have an unexpected appreciation for top gear snes because it showed up on bootleg carts apparently.

Brazilians are delusional retards with low IQ so it doesn't matters.
I love the music in this game.
When I lived in Mexico, MAMEbox arcade machines were the hot shit. Although they had tons of games, the ONLY ONES I EVER SAW MEXICAN KIDS PLAYING were:
>King of Fighters 2002 (and only 2002, maybe a weird hack of it but only 2002)
>Metal Slug (any)
>Snow Bros.
That's it.
oh yes, Mexico and kof 2002. probably Magic Plus, a hack with character switch and infinite super meter.
didnt know they played snow bros though. also i thought they simply had Neo Geo MVS with pirated carts
>also i thought they simply had Neo Geo MVS with pirated carts
Evidently not all of them. Well, there were some different types of machines, I remember playing MvC2 in a generic cabinet before, but most of them were just MAMEboxes stuffed with a shitload of roms

Goddamn these threads are so fucking retarded
How is talking about a retro console and referring to it by it's actual name retarded?
A notice My Hero says "The Sega Cartridge". There's a certain word conspicuously absent.
>referring to it by it is actual name retarded
actually it's called the Sega Mark III

This is S-video from an unmodded N64, you don't need an RGB mod, especially when the developers had colour degradation in mind.
Did DK give up his soul to the abyss?
RGB mods are such a meme but I won't not use RGB output from a console if it supports it. Like the n64 looks fine enough with S-video honestly. Looks better than when I was a kid, but still suitably blurry like I remember it.
Which one is supposed to look better?
Agree, N64 is intended to be a blur festival anyway, S-Video is more than enough for it.

The second part of the Project Deluge will be released on April 17, 2021.

The Saturn doesn't have an MPEG decoder built in. It's all software codecs. You actually can get good results with them if you know what you're doing. Sadly most devs at the time didn't:


There was an optional Video CD Card that allowed for MPEG-1 video playback, but it wasn't released in all regions and few games support it.
what's the point getting all hyped up over almost-gold-status prototypes of released games everybody could play for decades?
or is there another "thrill kill" in that dump?
this one is actually true lol
That D&D game looks interesting, I'll have to give it a go later.
Thanks for posting the archive links

Any tips on getting good at the Super Robot Wars games? I really suck at these, but I want to be good, so I can play them all. Wonderfull retro robot shit
The animations are good. But gameplay seems to be one of those mediocre Japanese rts.
How do I get good at the gamplay, then? I fucken suck
Work out what your units are good at and play to their strengths. Gundam units are decent shots and can do it at long range but a couple of hits will scrap them. Super types like Mazinger are tanky cunts but without Lock On or whatever it's called being active, they're going to miss a lot.

And when in doubt, there's no shame in camping on a base and playing keepaway.
Also, the game is much easier if you don't go for True Endings, those require beating the game under a certain number of turns, if you ignore that, you can retry stages and just grind until you become powerful.

Or play the PS1 games, or anything after that even if it's not retro, with the exception of SRW A Portable, every SRW is much easier than the SNES ones, mostly because they give you some new mechanics to counteract stuff like beam shields, also more melee units that are good at that.

And Super Mecha pilots getting Spirits that allows them to 100% attack anyone including bosses becomes more common.

But if you go for the SNES games...just either grind or treat it as a puzzle game if you want to get the best ending and hope in some cases the RNG blesses you, and accept that bosses will get no damage from beam attacks or many of your most powerful attacks.

For your last RE run, did you play original or remake?
47 replies and 8 images omitted. Click here to view.
>the point

The point isn't how the game plays with the rocket launcher, I never use it either, the point
The point is that the rocket launcher does to an enemy everything that can happen to an enemy with other weapons: take off limbs, burn the body, etc

in REmake it doesn't do that because there is no limb system.
Use the grenade launcher against a Hunter in the original: its arms are gone, its body rost. Use the grenade launcher against a Hunter in the remake: lol nothing.
Original on PC with the Gemini patch. Shit was so cash.
You don't even have a point. REmake is exactly as its name states, a remake. It doesn't need to carry over a carbon copy of every single mechanic from the original. If no exploding body parts is a deal breaker then I'm sorry.
> If no exploding body parts is a deal breaker then I'm sorry.

Yes, details like that are essential to how the game feels. Weapons need feedback in order to feel good, sound and visual, if the visual does nothing, then it won't feel as good to the player. The grenade launcher feels very week in most RE games, especially 2, because of the sound design, but in RE1 the grenade launcher kicked ass in every way. In the remake the sound design of the weapons is great, but the visual feedback is lacking.
So you care about the immersion from weapons but not the overall atmosphere? Because that makes absolutely no sense unless you're some retarded /k/ommando

the great debate

Revenge of Shinobi is brilliant but too hard without unlimited shurikins. I couldn't even beat the first boss without them.
3 isn't all about winning, you have to keep yourself entertained by running straight through the levels. I had a new respect for it when I figured out you could walljump through the area before Mechagodzilla and ignore the elevators.

Sega System version is kinda interesting

Post the games that filtered you hard
> No continues
> No extra lives
> You go all the way to the beginning
Yeah no this game suck ass. Shame, everything else is great
Get gud
Use the paper airplane every once in a while.
There are continues, you get one for reaching 2-1 and another for getting to 3-1.

I went to the hood to buy a gamegear from a guy off facebook. He ended up giving it to me for free since it was my birthday and we're both capricorns, but like most gamegears, it doesn't work properly. It came with a carrying case like pic related and sonic 2, sonic chaos and ecco.
The system turns on, but I just get a black screen.
I'm guessing I just have to replace the capacitors on it via soldering. The only soldering jobs I've ever done is replacing the batteries for my pokemon games. Do you think this would be a hard job for me to pull off with my limited soldering experience?
Also let's have game gear thread. What are your favorite games.
>Game Gear

I haven't played mine in quite some time but i remember enjoying Ristar and sweating like a madlad when I got past that infamous boss in sonic 2
Do you like sonic 2 more on genesis or gamegear?
>He ended up giving it to me for free since it was my birthday and we're both capricorns
His girlfriend originally offered me $50 and I told her I'd probably have to repair it and I offered $25. When I went to pick it up her boyfriend came out and refused to take my money for it.
Guess black people aren't so bad, 4chan. If you're nice to them they give you free video games sometimes.
