i think it had a very unique atmosphere, much creepier than any other doom port
didnt really enjoy it though

I think 8 hours of play time is a pretty good length, especially for one as good as Doom 64. When I got back into playing it I forgot how good of a game it was and I was hooked all the way through. The only irk I have with it is the "what the fuck did that switch do" syndrome, but that can be seen as a positive since it makes you pay more attention to the environment and try to recognize what changed when you tread back through for the way forward. Also the final boss is literally impossible without cheesing if you don't have the upgraded unmaker.

What? It's easy as shit, man. Were you playing with a controller or something?

It's only a problem in the space station levels. Then later on you'll get more Caco's, Mancubi, and Arachnotrons. The weakest parts of Doom 64 are front loaded, because SSG'ing Barons and Hell Knights aren't fun in hallways. When you reach "Even Simpler" is when Doom 64 kicks off.

Last month, we had a comfy thread of anons sharing (mostly) retro game music that would sound good on the old school weather channel.
https://desuarchive.org/vr/thread/8810017/
https://battaglia.ddns.net/twc/twc2.html
That thread culiminated in this based playlist of 191 YouTube tracks.
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL_6TxgIrAWl7m-b0fdSgMhF3NbVYKLzgh

During that thread I mentioned I wanted to make an album based on this, and after many hours of finding better quality versions and sorting out proper track names and sources, this is the end result.

This album is available in three formats distributed as a 7z archive split into 200MB parts:
>320kbps CBR MP3 at original sample rates
Part 1: https://files.catbox.moe/748mxs.001
Part 2: https://files.catbox.moe/s0ts4g.002
Part 3: https://files.catbox.moe/0g8law.003

It's just a 7zip archive.
You know how to use 7zip right?

Fix the file extensions by changing them from .001 to .7z.001 and so-on, and they'll all need the same filename like music.7z.001, music.7z.002, until all parts from that split archive are present.

It's a good for Nintendo that they didn't. It would have flopped. These console drive attachments had low sales, few games, and pissed off the highest spending customers. It could have even killed Nintendo because they didn't have another successful console after the SNES until the Wii that wasn't a handheld.

Nah, its not a bad game but it doesn't deserve its reputation. 4 and 5 are both much better. AC6 has the best boss battle, great mission variety and battle mechanics without often resorting to gimmicks and gets unfairly shit on for the sole reason that its on the Xbox.

I know, that's exactly what I was saying, but that doesn't mean the others are far worse, (although I do think people overrated 5 too much simply because of the PS2 TRILOGY HUR DUR)

I'm sure once you get a Series S set up, it's the perfect emulation box next to lugging your actual desktop and plugging it into your TV.

I used a Raspberry Pi 3 back in 2016. Was a pain to set up because I wasn't too familiar with Retropie and Retroarch at the time. Controller bindings were annoying, hated the Xbox 360 controller, and the 8BitDo setup would never connect via x-input. Stopped using it because I got frustrated and decided to set it up as a DreamPi for my DC.

I then bought a PS Classic when they were on sale for $35 in the summer of 2019. Performance wise, they're basically the same as a Pi 3. The default PS1 emulator is dogshit. The controllers are great, and work exactly as they should. It's piss easy to set up. I load it directly into Retroarch when I use it. I was also given a SNES Classic which I modded, but never use. It has a limited amount of space, so I just ended up hacking it with NES and GB/GBC games.

I also stream my desktop to my living room TV through my Steam Link. Input lag is noticeable, but I can kind of adjust to it. I play slower-paced games on it anyway.

>Why yes, I do spend more time messing with gadgets and menus than playing the games. How could you tell?
>>
>>8930358
I had a similar experience

>first do a desktop plugged to my TV with launchbox
>had issues with saving, input lag and performance issues, with even slowdown in the menu

>also had psclassic with retroarch up to SNES/PS1
>no analogue on the ps1 classic controller
>the ps4 psclassic adapter had issues with setting up dual analogue
>had weird compatibility with USB extenders

>didnt bother much with my snes classic because it was JP import and was too lazy to load games without a direct USB

Series S is the way to go, everything is preconfigured out the box, you just need bios files and thats it.

I'll probably pick up a Series X during the holiday season if I can find one, since I have a bunch of OG Xbox games that are compatible.

Except it really doesn't. You don't see the same kind of texture warping all over the screen like you do on PS1. The only time you see textures distort is when large polygons approach the edge of the screen.

You are correct that neither have perspective correct polygon rendering, and neither have subpixel accuracy. But those cause different issues and are not the same as texture warping.
>>
>>8930369
Lack of perspective correction is exactly what causes textures to warp. That's what it means by definition. You're wrong.

MK9 is indeed great, but it suffers from having too much of what made MK3 poor.

Humans transcend by not reminding everyone and themselves of their own lack of physiological control. Instead bettering themselves by being less base and more self aware. It's a part of sincere empathy. If you feel a compulsion to live like a monkey that lost it's defensive, protective warm fur. And are in denial about it. Then it would imply that you seek to be less evolved. And ergo, less human.

"Self" creates meaning and truth behind relationships and connections to people. If you act in a knee jerk fashion. You are a self harming, sad degenerate. And bad for the society.
