Bosses are great in Einhander.
Have you been to Doom general? Literally 6-10 edgy, faggot boomers circle jerking to a shitty game. Forever.
Redpill me on the failings of the port.
It's not arcade perfect but it's a good conversion

This is the real arcade experience. If you've never been threatened with violence for abusing throws you never played fighters.
Cry more, I only chose him because he's the coolest by far.
I like that the moves list isn't too large, for my character at least. It's quick to learn so that you can instantly go straight to working on actual fighting technique and apply them there.
Who do you play, Ky? GG has some of the biggest move lists I've ever seen.

Was this the last good Zelda game?

Threads about the Zelda franchise in general belong in /v/ since it covers a lot of games that are not retro.
Yes, but also no, you just grew up. But yeah, it's also probably secretly the best.
Cool story, bro.
The best Zelda with boring ass sailing?
>Literally the best set of final bosses in the franchise

Difficulty isn’t everything, especially when it comes to Zelda.

what are some japan only retro games that you would like to play but will never see a western release or fan translation?

Two projects (last one from 2013) started translating this, and both died.
These two posts literally look like the machine translator itself is making random irrelevant replies based on what it has seen here before.
This game isn't worth wasting time on.

I am 32 and love FF7 and OoT. These meme template bait threads are retarded though.
I just don't enjoy turn based.
Yeah well, I own two houses, two cars, have two wives and two kids with each of them and earn 180k a year and you’re a faggot
How is that relevant?

Any good Retro Games on Steam. Preferably PS1/Saturn PC ports. Also reccomend collections (I have the Genisis , Dreamcast, and Atari Collections)

R-Type Dimensions EX
Raiden Legacy - Steam Edition
Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap
Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom

Pretty much every classic Sega game and Final Fantasy is on Steam
Steam doesn't bother to get any retro games in working order. Never buy any old games on Steam unless you want to put as much effort into getting them to run as you would be pirating them.

Part of political militancy includes meeting people where they are and reasoning with them why your ideology is better and/or theirs is harmful. Shunning and isolating ignorang people for badthink and virtue signaling is why the US is on the brink of a new civilwar between a neofascist party and a snowflake safespace. It's not just about listening to racists but reasoning with them that blacks and jews are not their real enemy
holy quads of good insults batman, checkd and kekd
>checkd and kekd
We are not at the brink of a civil war.

Which part of the 2000s was better for gaming?
16 replies omitted. Click here to view.
2000-2004 was the best time.
I had to think about it, but the earlier 00s were more soul. The latter half of the 00s is where things started to go downhill and it was hard to accept for a long time.
>early 2000's
Soulful culture, not much different from the late 90's, people were flawed but not so bad, some music on the radio was still decent.
>late 2000's
Same dogshit culture of narcissism and self-importance that have made 2010's-present day miserable, and everyone's just a cunt, and all music on the radio is irredeemable, unlistenable shit made for tasteless, toothless dogs.
2000-2007. After 07 the vibe changed and became lame (social media).
Didn't Malcolm in the Middle end around 2004?

This game has too much 'real' in it. I think I'm going to have to go cry now.

Censorship after ghosts, violent police states, near rape scenes, love triangles making friends hate you, acting autismal, etc. She even has jobs.

Oh that game is by the same developer from WPJ 1 and 2? Nice.
I always wanted to play that one, maybe one day.

time crisis 5 is on pc
Does it run well on mame?
Fun art and idea, but loaded with waaaay too many bullshit moments that just take off health and you can't do anything about it. House of the Dead 1 and 2 give you a fighting chance. Kino if you are willing to put in the tokens though.
Laser Tag place near me had the big cabin version of this one. Loads of fun. I was always able to hit the special segments.
for a console that was perfect for the genre we sure didn't get as many for the wii as we should've
Aren't light guns just a subgenre of rail shooter? Like how belt scrollers are bmups.

Have you mastered Retroarch to achieve the ultimate emulation experience?
7 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
PCSX2 is constantly improving, read the latest developer update.
Several emulators have reached placebo-tier levels of accuracy for years now.
Anecdotally, when I go back to playing on real hardware sometimes I will notice stutters and crackles that I would have previously blamed on emulation, but it's actually there in the original hardware.
it's constantly improving upon a shitty base. you can shove all the hacks you want into that mess, it's hardly what I'd call "improvement".
there's a reason N64 emulation was shit up until someone decided to sit down and rewrite it from scratch.
Since I'm open minded and always developing my taste, I don't generally use emulators for games I already completed on the original hardware. So I wouldn't have this problem. It's for people with shit, narrow taste. Also, >>7122194 . There are so many games where I pity people who had to play the inferior original version now that there are endless improvements you can apply.
That guy is clearly autistic, but his point about things just feeling "off" is exactly how I've felt, traditionally, about emulation. I'm trying to see the light.
