You just had to be there...
don't get me wrong, I definitely enjoyed them back in the day, it's just a strange phenomenon to look at in retrospect like rage comics and mlg memes
I miss the days when 4chan was still basically FYAD and literally anything could be a meme.
>now everyone knows what a "meme" is
Anyone remember the video back then of someone talking about memes and pronouncing them "me mes?" I can't even remember who it was.
It was probably never meant to be the final design of the console. Only something to grab people's eyes, kind of a "Look! A gaming X!" vibe.

Welcome to The Garage, a thread where fans of racing vidya can discuss their favourite arcade, sim, kart, and any other kinds of racing games (this is /vr/, so any PC/6th gen game up to 2007 goes!). If you’re looking for something new to play or are new to the genre ask other Anons for recommendations and remember to gear up and have fun.

The previous thread was dooded: >8275361

It surprised me how significant the difference can be even in a well calibrated screen. It certainly made made the more muted parts (like empire city in NFS III) much less harsh in the contrast due to reduction in saturation. It helps that in my case AMD offers effectively a 1-click method at driver level so it can even apply in emulators.
"...In development at the time, was a dirt bike racing game called MotoRacer 2. The game needed a soundtrack - a popular band had been contracted to do the music, but pulled out when they could not agree to monetary terms. Steve and Rob offered up the services of Bottomdawg, and the other band Rob played drums for, The Have-Nots (now the V-Town Have-Nots). The two bands offered to do the soundtrack in exchange for Playstations, Nintendo 64's, and several copies of the game once released..."

I typically ride Rage Racer's big dick more than Type 4, but RRT4 really does take the cake for best /vr/oom intro. It's not just cool music playing to cool replay cameras. It's telling an actual narrative, pushes the emotional buttons, real cinematography on display, gives you a glimpse of Reiko as an actual person, music is made exclusively for the intro, it's got feet, it's got sax, has a fantastic climax. The last 15-20 seconds is pure big dick energy. Actual 90s CG intro kinography hall of famer. Posting it because it's not like Type 4 intro hasn't been posted for the 1000th time:

I should open up the P4 laptop I was given long ago and see how bad the damage is. Was my daily driver for a long, long time even when it was painfully obsolete. Hopefully the damage if any is slim to none so I can fix it, or at least salvage it for parts.

Is this game even good? It’s pretty expensive

>a man that played Kirby is in prison
>all the other inmates terrified
I played this all the time in the car, don't know how I managed back then.

But to answer your question OP, no. It is a good little spin-off game, but I am afraid for your purposes as a zoomer who missed out, the cost is not worth the plunge, and is little more than a novelty now.
Any genre of game with a Tendie reskin is an automatic 10/10 for Tendies. But for normal humans that aren't consumed by console brand loyalty? It's shit.
I had it back in the day. Its not good. Motion controls were dogshit until smartphones+wii dumbed billions of R&D into accelerometers tech. Remember how bad the original wiimote was? This is worse, and you only have 1 not so good game to play with it. So only buy it for historical reason while expecting to be underwhelmed. That way you may be pleasantly surprised, but at least you were warned when you aren’t.
I just checked, and that game isn't even close to being expensive.

Any advice on how to build up my deck?
Go on ebay and buy some cards
Play traditional and run pot of greed
Well, if you're talking about Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters (GB) specifically, and not any other retro Yu-Gi-Oh! videogame, or the real cardgame, then I'd say the best way to build your deck is by winning against Joey/Jonouchi 100 times, this way you'll probably end up with many copies of Sogen and Legendary Sword, alongside some of the best Warriors as bonuses for every 10 wins, with Red-Eyes B. Dragon being the last one, with 2400ATK, and considering the rules didn't have tributes yet, it's one of the best cards you can get.

The fact that this doesn't have levels or tributes means that, at least in theory, the best deck would be one with as many high ATK cards as possible, though early on that's not easy to do, because most of your cards are weak, and opponents' drops aren't strong either, with the main exception being the bonuses for every 10 wins you get, mostly the ones for 50 wins onwards. Fusions are helpful in many retro Yu-Gi-Oh! videogames, but here they're rare to come by, so I'd say the best strategy is Field Spells and Equips, so choose a theme, preferably one that can be powered up by either Yami, Umi, Sogen, Forest or Mountain, and stick to it, including cards that fit that theme, alongside the appropriate Equips.

I believe Warriors are best simply because grinding against Joey/Jonouchi is simple enough, and he gives many 1700ATK and 1800ATK cards near the end of the 100 victories requirement, but you can choose any duelist to do this with, like Mai so you can build a deck around Mountain, or Mako/Kajiki so you can build an Umi deck, etc. It's all up to you and your preference. Also, if you have the patience I'd go for 100 wins against either Yugi or Kaiba, because Yugi gives you Curse of Dragon at 90 wins and Gaia The Fierce Knight at 100, though with Kaiba you get many powerful Warriors, including Judge Man, and you also get Blue-Eyes White Dragon as the bonus for 100 wins, which is the best card in the game.
What is your favorite Téa/Anzu outfit? I like this one the most

Have been playing DDM for the GBA. Kind of fun. People shit on it because dice rolls are random but I feel like the dice add more dimension lol to the game.

I tried the GB game but I found it kind of boring because of how easy it is to just summon a bunch of strong monsters and just kill whatever your opponent places with one hit or so.

I'm obsessed with my super nintendo, but my controllers are creaky pieces of garbage I have some ideas on how to get a quality replacement controller, and would like feedback around this.
1)Unused original controller
2)Nintendo switch online snes controller (can I even get a bluetooth reciever to use this on an original snes)?
3)SNES Mini controller w/ raphnet adapter
4)3rd party controller (personally this fills me with a sense of disgust)

Reddit Gold awards when flashed
you probably have, but there are a bunch of little hidden events scattered around the world and cutscenes that play occasionally (including the game's "ending", which plays after the 365th dream). those are my favorite parts of the game.

not much other than reddit gold. the game never sold very well in nippon but thanks to youtuber faggotry you can expect to pay out the ass. the jewel case sure does look pretty sweet, though
It was a lot more fun when nobody really knew about it. I think I found out about it from /x/ like 12 years ago, and there was very little information around about it, so it was fun and intriguing to explore.

The appeal is kinda gone now that it's just some shit every streamer and their mother has laboured to redundancy. No mystery or intrigue, in a meta sense.

The game itself is okay, pretty interesting to explore for a few hours, but ultimately most of its appeal was in its obscurity.

Any good ideas on what to do with it? Besides playing cave titles and neo geo on it all day, i mean.

I guess this would serve as a good general thread for JAMMA/JVS arcade games i 'spose (i have a naomi universal as well so jvs stuff is topical as well)
88 replies and 11 images omitted. Click here to view.
15khz, the naomi cabinet has a Sanwa CRT and not a Toshiba/Nanao/NEC CRT. You can tell by what standard it uses, jamma is 15khz, JVS is 31. JVS doesn't use an all-in-one plug though, the VGA video feed uses a normal, well, VGA cable, so as you can imagine it's rather easy to hook up to a mame PC and have it play jamma titles
damn, i really envy you. in a good way, though. The worst part is that me (and a lot of other people i imagine) couldn't afford cabinets years ago and now that i can prices have gone up 1200%, and this isn't even the first time happening, esp in video games. I hate normalfags and redditors so fucking much for this. At least i managed to snatch some console stuff that's now going for absolutely insane prices. I wonder if all these cunts are ever going to sell their boards after their interest wanes, the hype wears off, or their wives tell them to, as i've seen time and time again.
Hell, case in point: some faggot is selling an outzone board (non-JP) for 480 smackaroos, fuck that noise..

i wish i was born a fucking gypsy or something so i would have zero issue going to these fucks' houses and just robbing them blind lmao.
I remember wanting to get into this stuff around 2014, and the only real people collecting this stuff were on forums like klov, shmups.org and neo-geo.com. It seemed like a pretty small but dedicated community, completely separated from the console retro gaming community. Superguns were not widely available either. The Chinese weren’t making them and I remember looking for instructions online on how to make them and if you didn’t you either had to get them custom made or get a Japanese sigma supergun. I remember there was an affordable supergun called the vogatek but the guy had stopped making them and finding one was hard. The RGB encoder was also an issue, but the gbs8200 was available back then.

It seemed like a very humble time but that isn’t the case anymore. Even bootlegs are getting ridiculous in price and desu that’s probably what I’m going to look at going forward lol. Repairing boards from Latin America also looks like a cool and affordable alternative too.
what's left in terms of forums? shmups, arcadeotaku... reddit is mostly new blood, but the bad kind of blood i think, they are mostly driven by clout and prestige rather than actual interest, which is always a bad combo

Back on the topic of FPGAs, would it be feasible to emulate CV1000 hardware? If it can handle PS1 i imagine it can handle CV1000... but i wouldn't know for sure
I assume that most reddit communities relating to game collecting are filled with Johnny-come-latelies. KLOV was (is?) a lot of the old guard, early Gen X and literal boomers, typically in the USA, most of them seemingly interested in wooden cabs. ArcadeOtaku was certainly skewed younger (not kids, but more late Gen X and early millennials who were into candy cabs and maybe a bit more modern-ish Japanese arcade gaming), and the majority were in Europe. No clue what they're like now.

I hate this game. Hear me out. This is not some bait thread to get yous because an unpopular opinion triggers people.

This game is full of cut scenes, sequences and constant interruptions that KICK you out of the game (play) so there actually is no smooth flow.
I know Hideo makes movie games and the guy would have better been off making movies but this is NOT a good thing.
I feel like MGS/the MGS series is part responsible and at fault for what I hate so much about modern games.
Modern games are all about cut scenes it seems they are are just movie games.
I like retro games because they are about the game and the game play. You just play it and it's fun. It isn't constant cut scenes that take you out of it and that movie experience.
So MGS paved a way I hate today and maybe if it wasn't for Mr Kojima a person who never got a chance to direct a movie gaming would look differently today / modern games would be fun.
I hate MGS for this so much.

Also the dialogues are so badly written it's just awkward and embarrassing to read. Do people over 12 SERIOUSLY think this is cool?

I don't have any of the issues you found in it. The script easily surpasses many action films, including the inspiration material like Escape from NY/LA. The voice acting in the PS1 version was probably unmatched until The Last of Us.

The gameplay is extremely fun and original. The guard segments live up to the "tactical" part of its tagline, while the boss battles are all inventive and challenge you in brand new ways the entire game. Skipping the cutscenes, you can beat the game in about 4 hours, which they reward you for doing in creative ways.

Yep, I really love MGS.
It's called a typo, razorfag fanboy.
Were the Thief games really that good or do people just use them as shitposting fuel in MGS threads because Razorfist talked about them once? The original Thief seems to be ahead of MGS in some aspects, but is more primitive in others.

The soundtrack is good, and this game is aesthetically consistent with the previous 7 main series games.

8 isn't all that consistent with the NES style, but the gradual elongation from 6 to 7 to 8 is a lot less harsh if you play those back to back.
It's one of those games where if it existed in a vacuum would be good, but falls short when comparing against other games in it's own series.
