>All Animal Crossing threads do is attract meta shitposting about the rules not allowing sixth gen, etc.
But that's what you're doing right now.
Read the rest of the thread, it's mostly people sticking to the actual first AC game, discussing the NES games in it and stuff, and some mild discussion about Deus Ex running on older PCs, nothing really bad or shitposty.
At the end of the day, the first AC is still a N64 game. Banning AC threads would mean we'd have to ban all games that got ports in non-retro systems... we've had this discussion before.

Yknow it's really a testament to how good of a game SM64 really is when, even decades after it's release, it can preserve a sort of mysterious sense of wonder like this.

That seems to be true for XL 3DS models. On smoll ones the screens are tiny. Of course the black empty space might bother people, it bothers me for example.

Also you’re excluding the smol new3ds with the face plates, my personal favorite model.

>>6464985
I might had a brain fart there, pay me no mind. As for new 3ds, it is the best 3ds model. It's just I had no reason to buy one. If my devices crap out on me I will buy it, or if I find it for dirt cheap. Whichever happens first.

This is the strangest and arbitraty opinion to have. You can do both anon, depending on what you’re up to at the time. Riding a train or a plane with a game boy is just a nice way to travel. If anyone has a problem with your use of whatever devices, they’re an asshole and a busybody. I play my game boy out and about because that’s what it’s for and it’s nice to feel the sun and grass and breath in some fresh air while l play. If a grown adult takes it upon themselves to interrogate or insult me for how I choose to travel or otherwise enjoy my own time I’m just going to dismiss them and go about my day, this isn’t high school.

My parents were the opposite. They were far too strict when I was young and shielded me from anything violent until I turned 16 and then suddenly they stopped caring. I think they just started focusing on their jobs now that me and my sister could take care of ourselves.

I am trying to find all those retro games with cute anime girls as protagonists. Bonus points for fantasy or extravagant 90's attires.

Pic related is Varis. It seems the Sega Megadrive versions of Varis 3 and 1 are the best.

What do you guys think of the powerup system in this? I think it's pretty good but situations like this are abysmal

I both don't mind and sometimes completely despise Twinbee's whole bell power up system.

>Get a bell to what you want

Always annoying when it happens.
>>
>>6465254
Yeah, I feel pretty much the same. At first I thought I hated it but after realizing how quick the upgrade path is I decided it wasn't a big deal, and is kinda cool in some ways.

If you were to modify the system, what would you do? For example, I might make it so that powerups require 2 shots instead of one to cycle off.

I've been thinking about this series but almost no one talks about it, redpill me on it and tell me which ones i should play or which versions and if they're even worth playing

They aren't janky to the point of being unplayable or anything, but I do find mario a little bit slippery and weird at points for sure which has lead to me getting disoriented and dying a few times last I played. I would say nintendo really refined the controls in later 3D mario platformers.

>>6466224
I wouldn't say janky, just nonsensical.
There's a reason non-Mario games never use triple jumps, sideways high jumps, and high backflips.
>>
>>6466230
I've played Galaxy and 3DLand, and while I liked them, I felt they allowed for less freedom than SM64. I never felt SM64 had slippery controls, always very precise.
>>6466270
>There's a reason non-Mario games never use triple jumps, sideways high jumps, and high backflips.
But those are things that are usually praised in SM64. Also, Banjo-Kazooie also did similar stuff, I definitely Banjo having a backflip jump, but the thing with Banjo is that, as much as I like that game, the controls are slower and less-momentum based than in SM64.
I feel the reason non-Mario games never used stuff like sideways jumps and backflips is because it's hard to program all that and then playtest to make sure there isn't any glitches or weird clipping and stuff like that. Easier to just make a regular jump and call it a day, but again, that takes away all the freedom and refined momentum-based 3D platforming SM64 has.
What non-Mario games were you talking about, btw?

A bunch of mario world roms

I was datamining PS1 games today and I found something odd...

The NTSC copy of Jimmy Johnson's VR Football '98 has a file named SRDATA.DAT that is actually a password protected zip file, and inside is another zip file named STUFF.ZIP. There's no information about this file anywhere.

I haven't been able to crack it. Maybe someone else can?
