This world, Earth, may not be approached for any reason.
Nor will hostilities against our orbital platform be tolerated.
In addition, your ship does not respond to standard Hierarchy identification transmissions and is therefore deemed to be independent.
This is not permissible -- only subservience shall be tolerated.
This drone now leaves to inform the Ur-Quan of your transgressions.
You are commanded to remain here and await the arrival of the Ur-Quan.
Disobedience will be punished.

CRT filter general

This is exactly how I feel. I’ve zero nostalgia for CRT having grown up with them. I’m perfectly happy with sharp pixels.
>everyone post no one source general
These threads are always the best.
It's very dependent on the game. Most games are fine with raw output, but some games did take advantage of dithering effects that don't translate properly without filters to imitate the smearing effect of the CRT glow.
Fuck off, zoomer trannies.

X series was the peak of the Mega Man franchise. Once they officially killed off X and Zero I stopped liking Mega Man. I don't like Battle Network and I hate Legends for being shit for otaku faggot losers who grew up on Love Hina and Evangelion and Ranma with the harem romance shit.

The X series was peak Mega Man what with it dealing with Light and Wily's ultimate creations and how they manage to survive in the world. Once the franchise abandons Light and Wily, and don't say Legend's is in any way the same one, it's just not Mega Man anymore to me.

The weapon leveling and punishing you for using upgrades you found suck ass.
Weapon levelling sucks but you can get your sabre slash on Aztec Falcon's stage so it's not like it takes a while. As for losing points from Elves, you can still get an A but obviously if you're playing godmode this becomes more difficult
Weapon leveling doesn’t matter. You can beat the game easily without ever worrying about it and if you don’t want your grade to get hurt by elves just don’t use them. It’s not difficult to win without them just gotta try till you succeed!
>Weapon leveling doesn’t matter.
It unlocks more combos, where is the fun in doing boring basic attacks over and over? No Megaman game is hard, the issue is locking away all the fun stuff for no reason.
I reckon you would get your arse handed to you taking on the final level of ZX with Model OX on expert difficulty

Story time.

I had this on Gamecube when I was a kid. Mega Man was my favorite game series so I played this all the time. But I also really liked Zelda, and I hadn't yet played Ocarina of Time. A guy who rode my school bus offered to trade me Ocarina of Time for this and I was stupid and agreed because I bought into the hype that Ocarina of Time was the greatest game ever.

I could play MM1-7 on my PC (albeit with shitty controls) so it wasn't a big deal, but this meant no more Mega Man 8. I ended up regretting the trade because this collection is way better than Ocarina of Time (I do like OoT though).

I ended up buying this back from him for $10.
I was like 14 when this happened.
That was one absolutely uninteresting story and I gotta be honest: It was definitely not something you should've shared.
needs more sec drugs and rock n roll
The story I shouldn't share is about the time when I was a little kid and my older brother tried to convince me to suck his penis and I said "no that's gay." Anything about retro games is fair game on this board, not matter how uninteresting it is.
You had the version with the horrible reversed controls so I have no idea how you developed a taste for it.

Why do so many X fans hate the Zero series?
215 replies and 33 images omitted. Click here to view.
Because they are sobbing 30-40 year olds who played the shit out of X1 and Mega Man 2 (and only those two) so they know them like the back of their hand; thus, when Mega Man Zero presents them a newfound challenge, they say it's too hard/bad design and feel like they are forced to grind to beat the first boss kek
i thought millennials liked a challenge and that zooms had it easy and were soft, what happened? it’s not even like the zero games are that hard after you beat the first one anyways. zero 2 and 3 are pretty easy if youve beat the first game. i beat some bosses in zero 2 with only one hand while eating chicken nuggets from burger king.
Millennials would ring phone numbers to give them guidance in games haha, plus they had Nintendo Power, cheat codes, and action replay. I feel you are my spirit brother, I too shall embark upon Zero 2 with Hungry Jack's nugs in hand (emu version of Burger King)
Good games don’t need a story to “raise the stakes” you bumbling autist. The quality of the writing in the X series is atrocious, anyway. I don’t know how it could be the main reason someone plays these games.
The plots may be badly executed but the lore is cool and the characters are likeable. X and Zero are niggaz. I want you to understand I not only refer to "niggaz" with an a but "niggaz" with a z. They keep it 300 hundred always

Did anyone enjoy the game corner in the original Pokemon games? Personally I hated it, you ether had to run through the elite four and then button jam A to buy 50 coins at a time or hope you have good RNG because if you don't you'd turn your Gameboy off and and back on to reload your save until you did. If only they just did mini games instead it could have been a nice break.

>but I'd usually pick Abra. That little fucker kept teleporting
lmao just throw a pokeball at it. Abra is the first catch in Cerulean.
Well, I was alive back then and we definitely knew about Missingo and getting a million rare candies.
I'm with the other dude. That's not "flaunting" anything and you are just a horny cunt who gets off at seeing ankle.

The jump is awkward and dated, this game just hasn't aged well at all

it was one of my favorites as a kid. however i hated part 2 simons quest, tho maybe i was just too dumb to figure out how to play it lol they tried to make it like Zelda which was another one of those games as a i kid was like "this is for smart people/adults. its too heckin hard!"
nah, still good. the 4th sucks though
"Aged poorly" is such retarded critique.
Yeah no shit devs don't think about what some 20yo who wasn't even born yet will think of it
Mario's jumping is floaty which wouldn't fit Castlevania. For one thing in Castlevania you're in a castle for most of the game so you'd be hitting your head on the ceiling unless you made every jump the lightest tap possible

How is the switch is good for emulation?
I would buy the normal version just for replaceable joycon because the drift bullshit.
For the price you're paying it's very underwhelming and the software obviously isn't as good as Linux/Android, but even more than that the device is simply too fucking big and the options for a d-pad suck.
Any GBA Micro sized emulation platforms with enough buttons for 16-bit consoles and up?
These are great with standalone retro emulators but retroarch runs like trash on it

Go play Baku Baku Animal, the superiour Sega Saturn stack 'em up.

this is the dark souls of retro shmups
1) stop baiting
2) stop calling everything that's even remotely difficult a "dark souls of retro x"
3) Twinbee is based
4) Recca, Gun-Nac and tons of other hardcore shmups exist
Those games can be hard too but Twinbee doesn’t fuck around

For a game to be the "dark souls" of retro shmups it wouldn'tbe about difficulty since pretty much every retro shmup is already harder than dark souls. So for that game it would have to be a shmup that is slow and boring with clunky controls and a hideous aesthetic.

The retro shmup equivalent of Dark Souls is the Gameboy port of R-Type.

I like that each loop is different from the last one. More shmups should have done that instead of just using the same design + harder enemies.

It was the perfect alchemy between the Old School StarFox High Score flying shooter, and the new School 3rd person Shooter, with amazing on foot missions with the Blaster (and other weapons), godlike Orchestral music and a good story.

This is the direction StarFox should have keep after Assault.

Star Wars reddit manchilds.
I was gonna say something similar. Multiplayer and all range mode are among the worst parts of Stat fox 64 and its "cool banter" was not good like anything that would a performance award but it's delivery were so corny and at times over the top acting that it becomes enduring like star trek. It's more fun than legitimately good though by mid to late 90s standards was still leagues above other titles you'd see on ps1 with gull voice acting.

Maybe it´s all the stuff lifted from classical mythology that gives them nostalgia from their past lives as roman peasants.
It was very popular in France in the mid 90s because it aired on wednesday morning (no class that day).
That game was such a mess. The localization team was cheeky enough to put a tongue-in-cheek ultimate password.
