Holy fuck when in the hell did prices for this system start shooting up? I haven't bought a games since 2006, Zelda TP. I kind of want to round out my collection pictured a little bit and get some games I always wanted, like F-Zero, Super Monkey Ball 2 etc. But holy hell they are more expensive than they were new, sometimes double! What are some must-haves that I should pick up before they shoot up anymore?

Wii is the real thing. A Wii is a GameCube with higher clock speeds.
You can probably go on Craigslist right now and find a Wii for next to nothing. Letterbomb it, stick in a thumb drive and just play the stupid games you want to play. It’s so worthless to pay premium prices for something that’s just going to collect dust after you’re done with your nostalgia trip.

When I was younger, I owned a D-Link DSB-C100 webcam and my dad swears he saw me playing this game with it though I don't have any memory of it myself. I lost it when I moved, so I imported one of those Create Labs webcams that was on the compatibility list and sadly it didn't work for me. I found some forum posts that corroborate that they don't work for everyone.

Anyone actually played this game with a working camera?

Yeah, some cameras have the right chipset, some don't. Sometimes they had internal revisions and shit. I've got a camera that works, I bought it 6 years ago for 30 bucks along with a hyperblaster and a copy of the game. Can't remember the make off the top of my head.

Don't mind the OG model 1 Sega Genesis sitting next to my mini consoles, it's just there for size comparison & to show that I still don't plan selling my old consoles.

I like the convenience of mini consoles. I can hack it, add as many games as I want including hacked versions of multiple games, including patching game genie codes for games as hard as Wolverine Adamantium Rage. I also like customizing the splash screen, adding my own custom menu music & I can even change the backgrounds. I don't have to have my OG consoles plugged in either thanks to these mini consoles.

Does anyone have mini consoles?

I think they’re very cool even though I don’t own any myself. I find ODEs, flash carts and soft modding on old consoles much more interesting and don’t really feel bothered by hooking them up whenever I want to play a game. I wouldn’t exactly go as far say that it’s half the fun of playing old games for me, but it might be like a fifth of the fun.
>>9284675
I really can’t believe how hard Sony shit the bed with the mini PlayStation. It was the one I was most excited for, too. I would have bought one if it came with Dual Shock controllers. Just about every other mini console out there seems like it was very well put together.

Igret is from Taito, so it's got stuff like Space Invaders, Kiki Kaikai, Arkanoid (if you get the spinner), etc. It's got a rotating screen (and supports rotating monitors if you use HDMI out), has a expandable game library, etc.

Worse, it outputs 720p which is already an upscaled output of whatever emulator you're playing (even the official Sony's) which is upscaled one more time by your 1080p TV, and the end result is FUCKING HIDEOUS to look at.
It's the most powerful and the easiest to hack of all the minis, the controllers are nice and supported by everything out of the box but in return you'll have to deal with its image "quality" (at the absurd price if you haven't bought it yet)

Who knows. Why was the official Windows branch halted? At least there's a continuous up-to-date backport going for that one. ES is difficult to set up on its own though because there is absolutely no automation. I shiver to think what that would look like on a mobile device unless you do everything on desktop and then just copy it over.

Twin Snakes is unironically superior. Anyone who says otherwise is a emotional deluded nostalgiafag.

>Anyone who says otherwise is a emotional deluded nostalgiafag
Actually, I played MGS:TTS first when I got a wii. Fun game but after playing the original on PS1 The original is a more pure experience, feels more authentic. The game was never designed for MGS2's controls and the "actual film director" cutscenes are really cringe. They were probably cool when the game came out because of shit like the Matrix but these days they're just too over the top to take seriously.

TTS is a much easier game, a lot of the BS like backtracking and equipping your card key is taken out, which is good, but also kind of robs you of Kojima's original plan.

It's not though. They're using Google translate and deepl which is terrible.
>>
>>9284042
why dont you translate it yourself then
>>
>>9283302
Well, the long version is that back in 2014 I was following the translation progress of a game I really really wanted to play. I checked for new developments every day because I was so passionate about it. (It was Rance VI.)
At the time a /vg/ poster told me if I cared that much I should just learn Japanese and play it, but I didn't listen because I had this worshipful, idolizing view of fan-translators who did so much work and asked for nothing in return.
Well, after nine months of waiting not only had no progress been made, the translator quit, deleted the little he had translated, and vanished off the face of the earth.
Having my childish belief in someone else ripped from me so suddenly made me furious and bitter. Those emotions metastasized into a cold hatred against all translators, which led to me teaching myself Japanese so I never had to deal with them again.
Since then my studies have softened that hatred and replaced it with instead a deep appreciation for being able to read stories as the author wrote them. That being said, anyone who trusts a translator blindly is a fool.
I'll repeat the advice I was given: if you care enough about a game to be excited about a translation, you probably care enough about it to learn Japanese. The earlier you realize that the less you'll regret it later.
>>
>>9284045
Because all translations are inherently bad and all forms of media should be enjoyed in their original language.

I just finished this. I didn't like it much at first, but it kinda grew on me (except the constant door transitions, those can fuck off). So where do I go from here? Chris Advanced? Resident Evil 2? REmake GCN? REmake HD Remaster?

But one thing I don't get is why is auto-aim the default aim (and in some cases, unchangeable) style of the game? When I first started, I rebinded my controls which for some reason disabled auto-aim. I got through half the game like this and I thought it was great. It really made combat feel more tactical and added tension to encounters. But then I was reading about the rest of the games, and found it's supposed to have auto-aim so switched to that (since that's what REmake and future entries use anyways). But with auto-aim it just feels so basic; you just 180° snap to a target, mash fire, and then move. There is no tension or high stakes to the combat at all. It's especially baffling since the one thing tank controls excel at is being able to precisely line up shots and move backwards while still facing a target, but yet they just choose to just fully automate it for some reason.

Also what is it about RE2 and REmake that are supposedly so much better that everyone considers them substantially better than RE1? As far as I can tell, in both games the inventory system is largely unchanged and the combat is very similar as well compared to RE1, and those are really the main flaws of RE1, aside from the excessive backtracking and door animations.
