The infamous PS1 version of X-Men vs Street Fighter is so bad, it actually has 3.62 rating Gamefaqs, and the game has never been officially re-released in an arcade perfect fashion

Let's hope Arcade1up does the job right

Why not appreciate it for all the console exclusive features and modes not found in the original. You can just use MAME for the "perfect fashion" if that's what you are looking for. Considerations were made in the console port to cater for a home audience with longevity.

Fake news. Tag team gameplay is present. Everyone keeps perpetuating that myth about the Playstation port.
Videogames are mysterious creations from out of the aether for most people

These have to be the most intense enemies to fight in any NES game
The blue variant are way worse
The down thrust doesn't work on Iron Knuckles or most other enemies anyway, but even the tight corridors let you jump just enough to hit one in the head with the normal stab.

You can get your attack up to lvl 2 pretty easily if you just hold off on the others.

Just stab them in the face, makes them super easy. The eagle ones are the scary guys.
Zelda 2 would actually be a good game is Link's sword was longer than an ant's dick.

Its a shame because even tough its cult following and masterpiece status, youtube vids completely neuter the game.

A shame.
For some reason the CRT shit never really caught on for PC. It kinda is a good thing though, because high quality PC CRTs are way cheaper and easier to find than something like a Trinitron.
Dont get me wrong I dont want to return unless it had the same space as a modern monitor. Crt were a pain sometimes.
But in a game about fucking shadows well its absolute necessary more than other shit.
Even the original splinter cells.

Monitors are getting there I think, but are a bit expensive for now.
You can try OLED/MicroLCD. They're suppose to have more colors than the shit we have today. Then add some sort of dithering/CRT filter or something to cover up the hard edges. I know in my last comparison you could see the corners on the pot clear as day, but for 90% of the game it's pretty hard to spot them on a CRT.

It just sucks there will be no 4:3 OLED/MicroLCD monitors. For some reason when I'm playing in 4:3 I pick up way more details in the game than I do in 16:9. Probably because my attention isn't divided across a larger screen. I'm probably alone on this though.
Maybe you are sitting to close to the screen.

You know what, if somebody does a vr version of Thief that would be something I would like to try.

Even though I own the origional, I think this is phenomenal news.

They should try dubbing the first special and the Abel movie, if they haven't yet. Those would probably draw some good attention.
The Abel movie has great animation and the first special is a good one-off.
Oh,man, I went through something similar bc I kept asking the dude that stopped bringing clone games when he was going to again. But for me, I played the 4th game of thar series, which is pretty great if you can like side stories, it's a bit harder to get into, though.
>Well also Brasil didn't have a lot of anime on tv at the time, so it had the novelty going on. First shonen of the kind here.
What the fuck are you talking about, nigga? We had Manchete back then, which was full of both anime and tokusatsu, and also a lot of anime on Band and SBT.
>preparate a morir, (insert name of character here)

The most common phrase in this anime
Wrong. I'm talking about '94. Tokusatsu had died out a bit around here, by then. Manchete would bring Sailor Moon, Samurai Troopers, Tenkuu Senki Shulato, the U.S. Manga OVAs etc a couple years later, after seeing how successful Saint Seiya was.
SBT would also follow a year or two later with Dragon Ball and Dai no Daiboken, I think Magic Knight Rayearth and Street Fighter Victory followed a bit later. Bandeirantes really started messing with anime around 2000, Record probably got on the train a bit before them with some series and at least a movie or two.

Before that, the last really successful anime I recall here was Zillion, and that was in 1990.

Kids, stay in school
HD 569
They were about $250 and they sound beautiful.
yeah they're pretty great for personal headphones, lot of good highs, bass isn't overwhelming. Great pick all around. I used to do mixes off of a pair of HD 596's (really similar model) when i was starting out, and they came out good, all things considered.
It's overkill for the Genesis, but that makes it even more satisfying on a certain level.

But it didn't have everything so I also use cdromance, vimm.net, and the-eye-eu.

Romsmania randomly is missing things. For instance it has the second myst on the psx but not the first, vimm's lair has it, both, and has other random small things it'd not have. Like Final Fantasy Legend 1-3 but has Final Fantasy Adventure for gameboy as an example. The eye is comparable to vimm, but more than a year ago I saw it keep going down so I ignore it and use cdromance for bin/cue psx files, romsmania for most things, and vimm's lair when things go south there.

Once I have all 80 of my psx games backed up I won't even CARE if it goes down. As a neet I don't have the space so oh well. It' snot reddit. I'll source shit if I want to.

So, there it is. Hopefully no one posts it on fakebook or jewtube.
Also I use the p i r a t e g a y .

Even early Gen 7 still has some good stuff, it just happens to be the gen that also fucked everything up.

Don't think it's such a big deal, don't think many people are hyped to talk about games like Call of Duty 2: Big Red One.

>why the fuck is there sunlight indoors? can't see from this angle so I better use the camera to get a better look
>oh look, the sun, better gaze at it mindlessly to make sure it's not waving back at me
-No one played this game in a vacuum
-you only need 58% of the stars to beat the game
-Playtesting a game to make sure any person can find the solution organically is incredibly hard to do since you can only play it for the first time once.

However if you try to please everyone you end up pleasing nobody.
Sounds like the Nintendo MO, make a game liked by everyone, loved by no one.
Notmal but stagnant, obviously. Trying to get attention on the basis of being different is cancerous.
you sound like an expert anon, care to post some of your design work for us?
I mean, being different only for the sake of being different isn't enough. It also has to stand on its own.
Like how TLOU2 was poorly executed and manipulative for the sake of causing controversy. Bravo TLOU2 you've just murdered a franchise.

This ignores the basic fact that Agness Kaku is a literal retard who shouldn't be anywhere fucking near a piece of entertainment. There are dozens of examples in the intro alone where she rewrote shit poorly because she hasn't even the most basic understanding of how people talk.

MGS2's translation was poor thanks to Kojima, but it was even worse than it had to be thanks to Kaku.

You might have seen hundreds of hours of him, but you don't know the real Arino-sama. That guy is playing a character. I think one of the only times he dropped character was in that Angel Quiz game where he gets very oddly defensive about his daughters dating. That brought out the stern Japanese father in him.
Game Center CX isn't even Arino's claim to fame. No one here knows the real him but IN MY HUMBLE OPINION he's not going to risk his comedy career over the chubby woman on his video game show.
He has mentioned in a few episodes that as time goes on, more people recognize him as "Arino-kacho" and less recognize him as "Arino of Yoiko".
