usually vidya music threads don't take off but I'll try. post silly retro tunes that get stuck in your head. stuff that is NOT your symphonic RPG OSTs, rock, metal, etc. rather, weird silly music from less "hip" genres / defying genres.

Any advice on how to build up my deck?
2 replies omitted. Click here to view.
>>
>>8401407
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.

So i just bought literal pic related

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)

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
>>
>>8401072
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.

It's a great game if you like personalizing your characters through the Master specializations and enjoy classic turn based rpg combat. Combining dragon forms is also fun.
Pretty grindy though, if you don't like the combat you'll probably get filtered.

Still one of the greatest consoles of all time

It has a charm to it nothing since has ever been able to replicate

PE2 had some nice ideas, but it was a piss poor RE clone and it's kind of a slog to play. The premise is Iwao's idea for a RE sequel and he awkwardly grafts it to PE. It would have worked better as a RE storyline.

Dunno if this has been posted yet, but about two weeks ago a reconstruction of beta Master Quest was released by ZethN64

This is the original "expansion" planned for the 64DD, which was even more difficult than the original and the version of Master Quest released on Gamecube.. Also the actual "Ura" Zelda which was just harder Master Quest, which they dug through the overdump to find the layouts and code to.
Figured this might be interesting, I got to Dodongo's Cavern and already the puzzles feel more engaging than the retail version of MQ, which had it's difficulty cut down
