The NTSC versions of the game ran at 30fps
The PAL Versions ran at 50fps (except for the gamecube version)
The prototype/beta builds of the game ran at 60fps
I have no idea why they did this.

Is there a retro gaming "bubble" in the market? Why or why not?
I just want to justify purchases as investments.
>>
>>8007653
No bubble OP. It's just like real estate.
Real conversation I often have with envious friends:
>"Ooohhhh your house is going to be worth NOTHING in 5 years from now! Hahahaha"
>"I don't think so. As long as people keep being born, the price is only going to go up by the year"
>"That shit's FAILING BRO! You're going to be FUCKED, you're going to sell your house for 10 cents!"
>Price keeps going up by the year because population increase is absolutely insane so a 30m apartment now costs what a 100m house cost 10 years ago
Retro gaming is kind of the same. There are only so many original software and hardware available.
>"People will stop collecting bro"
No, they won't. Prices can only go up.
>>
>>8007681
I do think it all comes down to whether there will be some demand by some collector out there, but I suppose if there's less buyers overall, it's just harder to liquidate games.
>>
>>8007681
yeah but younger people don't care about physical media. also younger people care about what they grew up with (switch, wii, ps3, ps4), NOT what we grew up with (old sh!t).

property is always worth investing in. video games are not. they will always have value, but it won't keep going up. some shit that hits pop culture status (mario etc) might. but generally interest will have to wane as kids grow up and want the shit they had, and the people who care about the shit we had will all be dead.
>>
>>8007653
It could go either way.
>>8007681
I don't think it's anything like real estate. The best analog would probably be the retro toy market, which always lags ~20 years behind the age of the target demographic. As that demo starts to lose interest or die off, only the pristine pieces continue to increase in value, while everything else becomes thrift fodder.
>>
>>8007681
>prices will always go up
Yeah Combat for the 2600, I just can't find one for less than $14,000.

No. The outside of a disc spins faster, and therefore reads faster. The bigger the disc, the faster the outside ring is.

That's why small games usually have padding to push the data to the outside of the disc.

All the kills are (cleverly) censored by a bad video camera filter, as it's a game about being a snuff film star.

Do you think a survival horror game in the style of the PSX classics could be successful today? I'm talking about something on the same level as silent hill or resident evil in terms of scope. Do you think people would accept it today, so long as it was actually scary?

Steam reviews for this game often note poor camera work which prevents you from seeing important things and frequent crashes. But I guess, many modern players probably don't even realize fixed camera was a thing back then and not used to it.

>r this game often note poor camera work which prevents you from seeing important things
It's just Resident Evil camera's. I do have a small gripe with the camera's in that it controls like Silent Hill 1-3 when they have rooms with fixed cameras, but it has extremely dramatic camera angle shots like in classic RE. It's a little awkward. IIRC the devs weren't retards with the cameras and you didn't have shit like walking straight into an enemy that's off screen in a room you first entered with 0 warning or items never being in frame.
>But I guess, many modern players probably don't even realize fixed camera was a thing back then and not used to it.
Yeah. It kinda supports the point I'm making that an RE fixed-camera style game would get bad flack due to retards. There's probably 100s of decent obscure horror games with RE fixed camera angles that get review bombed on Steam because "Muh bad camera work". I know I saw at least 2-3 on Steam in the works before that greenlight shit and Amnesia's release.

>frequent crashes.
Somehow I never crashed when playing it. Maybe I got lucky or it was really buggy on release.
>>

Seriously, do they just think we're all going to put down the controller when we turn 50?

so why did people start considering this game bad or mediocre? are they underaged or something?

I think of Mario 3 as a very polished entry that I don't really personally like because it plays it very safe and doesn't have a very unique flavor. Soulless, if you will. That's why new super Mario bros and 3d world / land take so many cues from it. I feel similarly about link to the past.

> general puzzle game thread recommend some /vr/ puzzle games please!

My top 5:
1. Magical Drop ( definitely 3 ... or money puzzle exchanger if you played em all )
2. Super Puzzle Fighter
3. Wario WOODS BB
4. Puyo Puyo / Mean Bean Machine KEK
5. Chu Chu Rocket

Boomer Mention: Puzzle Bobble ( boomers love puzzling their bobbles )

PS holy fuck wario woods is HARD. seriously you can eliminate lines diagonally, vertically, horizontally. then the controls are like you can jump to the top of a column, pick / put 1 or many, kick, fall throw. I thought this shit was just a yoshi cookie but it legit takes skill. also any tips I can only make it to round 30 ish?

I really like Star Sweep. VS Puzzler with a unique mechanic where you match the star points on this columns, rotating them to fit, sending junk over to the enemy. Plus the music is great, and good music always elevates these games.

RGC actually allows me to buy their cables, unlike Retro Access, which is run by a lazy runt.

RGC had issues in the past but their cables keep improving over time. I have their cables from several different years and they certainly look better in 2021.
Retro Access on the other hand refuses to sell you their mythical top of the line very very bestest cables unless you happen to catch their 1 hour open window once or twice in a month. And fuck you if it's 5AM in your time zone when it happens.

I wish I had taken a picture but I was already getting beat down in the rain. If I had to guess it was 40" but I obviously didn't measure it or anything. It had a large wooden frame, with what appeared to be two composite inputs and one component input. Brand started with a T I think. My neighbor is loaded, frequently drives all over the state picking up weird shit from junk yards, thrift stores, Facebook market listing, etc. He's the kind of guy that has three trashed classic cars in his yard that he's fixing up. He already flipped one that he restored. I wouldn't doubt it if he had a good TV like this. He's also an insane audiophile. I'm almost insulted he didn't even ask if I wanted it considering we talk about this stuff. I'm gonna yell at him next time I see him.

I mean a lot of them are doctors and shit too, but it's easier to outsource customer support to places where they have proportionately more wagies in their pool. The only reason they don't use Chinese people is because they're somehow even more incomprehensible or don't even bother learning English, at least that's what I saw at uni.
In any case enough of the thinly-veiled /pol/, did anyone else have a 14'' Matsui CRT as a kid and do they still use TVs from that brand? I had one and had my PS1 hooked up via SCART, always worked fine enough. Sold it years ago and thinking about buying it again for old times' sakes.

I started a game a few weeks ago and got half way through but I restarted. Just defeated Thor. I'm making much faster progress in about half the time.

My current hero. I am playing as a "pokemon trainer" style build with monsters in the front as my tanks, while my fast but low health hero is in the back. I found out speed is a very, very, good stat. It increases your agility, and defense as well as turn rate. The only downside is that with low health and low magic, he gets wrecked by magic spells.

My current party. Law and Chaos heroes are mage-knights. They have decent magic and strength but have low HP.

Also, since i had no clue who was going to come and go I always dumped my stat up items on my hero. But now that I know that Hero-Heroine are end-game characters I split them among those two. Never gave Law-chaos any.
