Why is the Sega System referred to as the Sega Master System by newfags?

...whose memories are these? Could there be a global crisis arising that will wreck hell on planet earth? Could it be related to the Sega System and the suppression of the truth?
It's the Sega System.
Blame Sega.
Oh just FRIG OFF already you insane BIRDHEAD.

Just finished Thief Gold for the first time and I'm downloading some FM for it. Any suggestion?

Dark Mod's pretty but it just seems like they hear too goddamn well. Should I just lower the AI down to the minimum to make this fun? Feel like it just lacks a certain something the LG games had, but wondering if I'm just being impatient with it. Seems like it lacks certain shit like how you can still score knockouts if you get behind them in the dark.
I think you're just comparing that spike of activity to a norm that has always existed.
Thief threads were always popular but the threads got buried in the spam during the rule change and didn't bounce back. The spike from Mandalore just reminded everyone there's still an interest in the game.
Even if I played it recently I feel like this. I want more of that atmosphere and more of that feeling. It's truly a fascinating experience.
Go to thiefguild and search by best for a certain time frame. Start from the oldies, play the best 5 - 10 and then go on to the next year. Makes you appreciate how the FM scene has evolved.

what am I looking at here?
Okay, so I'm running doom on windows 98 in DOS mode, how do I go about playing wads, is it as simple as replacing the doom1/2wad inthe respective games folder with the custom wad or what?

Also any wad recommendations for someone who just likes killing demons instead of navigating through long labyrinth like levels? I've only ever played the official levels but after seeing how much more fun a lot of these custom maps look I want to get into it.

i'm 8 hours in the first game and its the only JRPG i like

there are no hard JRPGs, the nature of the genre makes it almost impossible to make them difficult while remaining playable.
7th Saga
Shut the fuck up you mongoloid. There's too many hard jrpgs for me to count. Just don't be a faggot that sits on their ass and grinds until they're overleveled sucking all the challenge out of the game.
whit what guys can i make "unite" attacks?
first game. yes i re-recruited him. even tho i'm very sure i did recruit him before. oh well

this thread again?

What's the best way to play SNES FF 4,5, and 6? There's like a new translation or improvement patch released every other day. Mind boggling. Should I just play the vanilla versions?
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
Translated Japanese version. Vanilla English has spoony bard, but the gameplay is far too easy.
GBA translation patch
Modifed Woolsey patch or translated Japanese version
I agree with this guy
but he's right about IV being too easy
There are so many retranslations and improvement patches it makes my head spin. About 90% of them are made to cater to a very small group of people anyway. I think the most uncensored version without any patching would be the PS1 versions maybe.
play vanilla then go back and play patches if you feel like you missed something. Speak or read Moon? Cool play those, if not who gives a shit about what some fat antisocial Otaku on 4chan says?
Gameboy Advance versions. The best available translations of all them, and in FF6's case fixes a lot of game breaking and game ruining bugs.

Turok or Turok 2?
2 because of the weapons and music.

there's no other choice for a weapon.
Stealth or Leaf while "probably" be able to carry you through Hell, Grief makes you breeze through hell making it the only choice you have for your weapon if you are a physical melee char.
So if you can get one of the endgame runewords, the unique weapons and armor become obsolete without exception? And the uniques, in turn, make the rares and most sets worthless? And nobody needs plain magic items?

I remember how in Diablo 1 a humble blue King's Sword of Haste could outfight any unique. Those were the days.
>obsolete without exception
No. In general you are correct, yes, runewords are the most powerful items in the game for most builds.

...but there are exceptions to everything you just said however. Some blue gloves and helmets are best in slot, as many rare items can be, too, though they're exceedingly rare. Hardcore characters will tend to favour uniques as well, as they can get some very powerful damage reduction stats on them among other things.

If you're willing to not be a disgusting metafaggot, you'll find you can make builds 80-90% or so as powerful as the minmax bullshit but with a lot more flexibility of choice.

Grief and Enigma need to be deleted from the game, along with the teleport skill.
the only worth items outside uniques and runewords in my books are 3/10 sorc ammys and 3/20 amazon gloves.
of course the usual gg circlet is also there but that's another set entirely.

Do you own any handheld emus? Post yours. This one for me, it's comfy as fuck for RPGs and Tactics games which is what I mainly play anyways.

is there like no overall good device?
I have a hacked vita so technically i dont even need to get one of these but my consumer mentality needs me to at least buy one of these things.
I just need something that will at least play playstation games.
If you have the tools, consider building your own with a retropi. There's plenty of videos on the topic and you can make it exactly the shape and size you want even without a 3D printer. A nice stained and coated wood shell could look really nice.
ive actually considered that at one point but i only have a resin 3d printer. been wanting to get a fdm printer but the one i want is always selling out.
doing one in wood seems cool but dont have any sort of tools for wood working.
i actually turned an old madcatz arcade stick into a retropi "plug and play" device. it was a fun project but ended up giving it to a friend.
Powkiddy V90. 30 bux cutie and it can play some PS1. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3BHkqP7BhSY Don't expect anything amazing though.

I made it to the second level one time

That may be, but the NES version is something special. It's halfway broken and feels like it at all times. I could see being filtered by it, even if it's not REALLY as difficult as some of the usual suspects are.

Those games are so weird. I hit the last level of Ironsword as a kid - it can't be that hard, can it, since it has a password system right? I think it does anyway. I never actually finished it then though. I had to come back and try to achieve 1CC as an adult (which I eventually did). I don't think it's a super hard game if you practice, but it's unfriendly and I sure wouldn't call it an easy game.
I can beat it no code no deaths in 20 minutes.

Get on my level.

I prefer 3 but 2 has the best boss fight in the series with metal gear ray IMO
Both are excellent, but it’s 2 for me.

Siege of Avalon was re-released as a digital version on Steam or GoG. Worth it? I have only vague memories about the game, but I know that I had a lot of fun with the free first episode. It's been 21 years... should i play it again?
