Anyone remember Panza's Kick Boxing? Another martial arts game that on paper should have been fun, but sucked in the end.

Do people actually like this shit or is it just meme retro youtubers? You might as well play with a fucking dvd menu.

Figuring out what to push and when to push it was a fun puzzle, for a short time. Watching the animations was fun, for a short time. It's a novelty game and it's shallow, yes. But people can indeed like novelties... if only for a short time. Which is long enough, since it was initially an arcade game.

Also, some people may like it for longer periods of time because of nostalgia or because they primarily are interested in the animation or because they appreciate the history of it or for some other specialized reason like that.

Also, you're stupid.

I know most people don't consider them gaems, but japan released (and still releases) shitloads of visual novels for DVD players.

Do you treat joke characters as a novelty, try to make them work, or just consider them a waste of resources?

In MvC1 she was smaller than Megaman, all her supers came out slower so she couldn't really combo them, and her strongest normal punch was as strong as Ryus weakest punch. The only upside is that her throws were okay, and if you could connect the laser beam on her qcfPP super it did good damage.

She was super fun to fight Onslaught with due to just how small she was.

Norimaro was legit useful, but then he was in a broken game. His headbutt throw and qcfKK super was histerical.

Why didn't more games copy its style?

Why aren't we using the clearly superior Japanese version released 3 months later?

Japanese version has:

>huge list of balance changes to moves for the better
>Aska has a skimpier outfit
>new much clearer voices for the characters and announcer
>Aska has a new kawaii win pose animation
>Turtles blimp has their logo on it
>blimp cutscenes during the day

Is this backwards compatible on Xbox Series X?
>>
>>7303373
I don't like the main weapon change personally, the bat feels a lot more flimsy and useless than the frying pan. I also don't care for the general aesthetic changes like Conker's new outfit, where before he was aping 90s mascot platformers he now resembles the 00s style like Blinx, Jak & Daxter, that kind of thing. The multiplayer also got gimped terribly if that matters to you. Other than that it's fine and looks beautiful, personally I'd reccomend it for a second playthrough but not a first.
>>
>>7303912
Every single game that works on the Xbone also works on Series X, including all backwards compatible 360 and OG Xbox games.

>>7303373
Yes, unless you want to play multiplayer. N64 had way better multiplayer modes.

Is there any way to play some of the "newer" PC games from 1995-2004 using a CRT filter like what's available as shaders in retro arch? I haven't found anything for this. I remember owning a CRT up until 2006.

And no, I will not pay $2000 for your shitty Trinitron. If shaders can work with older console games on emulation, it should be possible for PC games as well.

What is PD2 and why am I not playing it

>>7305684
pvptism

windforce might have higher max damage compared to this but add on the +3 bow skills and etc added damage types rares can spawn with and it will out damage WF without filling the sockets granted for this to happen is like probably 1:10 000 000 000 godly rare GMB's should have 440+ max dmg and are beyond fucking expensive
>>
>>7305808
This particular bow has only +1 and anyway, does +3 bow skills and other bonuses wf doesn't have really add that much (physical) damage? I mean it can't spawn deadly strike or something so I thought it had something to do with aspd.

That looks a lot like a big publisher's name down in the corner there...

The first indie developers in the modern sense of the word (as compared to computer scientists hacking together games on mainframes just for entertainment) were probably the euro microcomputer people.

I miss when emulator filters were seen as a joke and we'd mock people who use them cause they always looked awful. Now you have people unironically using filters in retroarch and others thinking it actually adds to the experience.

What the fuck happened? Is this just what happens when too many young people get into retro gaming? Maybe I outgrew the scene.

Are retro games really that much worse on HD TVs than on CRTs?
4 replies omitted. Click here to view.
>>
>>7304320
Yes. They only look good on CRTs.
>>
>>7304320
LCDs are rubbish. They lag, have no depth perception as in paper flat, shitty unnatural colors, produce ghosting, blur details in motion, lack of luminosity, etc etc. Becaue of their perfect geometry LCDs are great for PC/windows and stuff. But completely useless for games.
>>
>>7304320
On original hardware it makes a huge difference to use a CRT as LCDs introduce lag and have shitty upscaling qualities. These games were also designed to look good on CRTs. Ranking goes:
CRT + Original Hardware > CRT + Emulation > LCD + Emulation > LCD + Original Hardware

>>7302697
They have aged pretty badly and this is coming from a fan. They are very slow, the combat is horridly simple and boring, but there is a lot of charm and the OST is great.
I like the Shadow Towers more though although the first Shadow Tower has the same major downsides of King's Field. Abyss to a lesser extent since it was the first game with half decent combat.
>>
>>7302697

Games don't age. You either like it, or you don't. I first played it this year, and I like it.

What the fuck is UU and SS? The only SS I know of is "Straight Shota" and "Sibling sex."

Neither do movies. Jaws is just as scary today as the day it came out.
