is the coin sucking aspect of arcade games an inherent flaw? Kind of disheartening to sink my teeth into any of them when I know the primary design concern was making a grimy owner cash 25 years ago.

what's a game you would point to as being especially pure from coin sucking cheap design? no fighters or racing.
nba jam
I can't believe there's two of them
Not really. I went to arcades in the 90s. If the games were too Jewish: milking coins in a way that felt like they ripped you off, you just didn't play them anymore. It would make some money initially as it was this shiny new thing that attracted regulars, but over time as people knew it was just a ripoff it the amount of people playing it would crash and plateau. If the owner was going to buy these things, they want to recoup the costs, so you wanted to buy machines that could do that as quickly as possible and ripoff machines will take longer to do that.
As it turns out, there are still a ton of really good and balanced arcade games, that’s why people played them and why they got ports to home systems.

Was always really excited when I snagged one of those discs. Anyway, I'm trying to decide if I should fuck with digging out my Vita or just playing shit emulated for PSX. Have there been any decent translation patches released in recent memory?

Lmao I bought a PS2 With the intention of hooking up an HDD to load games from and it doesn't even have a spot for the network adapter to connect. Wtf Sony!

Just buy another one, i'm currently sitting on a throne made of xboxes.
HDD is way faster, and doesn't suffer from the CPU bottleneck anyway.
>Features are added to later models, you dumb fuck.
Being able to plug in a network adapter seems like a pretty basic feature that should be expected for a console that launched 3 years after the Dreamcast, you dumb fuck.
I did. I found a working unit with the expansion bay for $15. At least the launch unit I got came with some other stuff so it wasn't a complete waste.
Stop fucking lying.

>I am fairly sure 3 Complete won't let you use Super Sonic in the second half before finishing the game,
No, I think it does. The original S3&K combo certainly does. As long as you avoid the big rings you can stay super. And I think I remember doing it in S3C too.
>they made a Sonic pinball game, but it wasn't based on any of the original games
They could have just heavily modified Sonic 2 or something, and it would have been better. Someone should make that as a romhack actually.
3 was
Likely came from Sonic Mega Collection. It had the CD opening and ending as bonus videos.

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?

Ah, well I guess I got lucky then
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.
This makes buying one of these models a gamble every time sadly
Only the PAL version of the game is compatible with the third party webcams. The japanese version wont work with them.
Well I have the PAL version obviously.

So why isnt there a emulation station for android? Unless i have failed i cant find anything.
You have Retrobat for windows so its capabel running as its own program.
It's a front-end isn't it? Launchbox has a beta for an android version.
that's what emuelec is for
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.

I think gridiron football is the most entertaining sport to watch, with the perfect blend of strategy, tactics, skill, athleticism, and violence.

Is there an english patch for the japanese version of this game? Would love to play this in english without the changes.
8 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
People like to complain about free shit.
>As long as they get it close enough
It's not though. They're using Google translate and deepl which is terrible.
why dont you translate it yourself then
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.
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.

REmake was released 5th. HD is a remaster of the same game (meaning only an idiot would play both) Chris advance is a rom hack, and not for beginners. 2 is the second game released. Its pretty straight forward you fucking retard

>an arrange mode added in the Director's Cut is a romhack
>release order is the only order you can play games
Christ you are an actual fucking retard and I hope you are trolling
RE2 on Nightmare Difficulty also disables auto aim, and I think REmake on its highest difficulty as well
the old games without quickturn would not work without autoaim. some enemies like hunters would rape you instantly.

Get rubbing alcohol and a q-tip. Very very very lightly clean the laser with a barely dabbed Q-tip and then dry it with the other side of the q-tip. Do NOT press hard, gentle as possible.
Make sure you’re burning DVDs at the absolute lowest speed your drive can go. I burned Ehgreiz god bless the ring for my PS1 and I get minor stuttering in the opening FMVs. It can be caused from a multitude of things. Could have smudged the disc, could have been an imperfect burn, could be a bad rip, doesn’t mean it’s the laser. I’ve tested at least 50 games on my softmodded ps1 and that is the only game that has stuttering during cutscenes and it’s extremely minor.
because it was the best console in 6th gen
That game still holds up today in terms of visual quality, it's a very well made game in that aspect, impressive detail and audio
