Been playing N64 games lately, beat Banjo-Kazooie and now just made it through Pilotwings 64 (great game), now playing Wave Race 64 and it's amazing.
Are you playing anything N64-related lately?

Everdrive probably has better compatibility, emulators and more options and customization (i think you can even emulate controller paks with latest FW), but like I said it is way more expensive.
ED64+ is pretty much an older version of Everdrive and most games work fine but some games must be cracked (like Banjo-Tooie or Jet Force iirc) and some games don't work (Animal Forest, DK64, Star Wars Racer and Perfect Dark don't run i think), also you have to reset before changing game or your data will be lost (at least for battery-saves).
>>
>>7648747
The x5 also requires a reset to keep save data apparently, but that doesn't bother me. I dunno, I'll mull over it some more. Thanks.

I have an x5. You have to hit the Reset and wait for a moment before shutting off the console or else you'll lose whatever changes you made to your save file since you started playing last. Not a big deal so long as you remember to do it. I haven't really delved that deep into stuff you can do with the EverDrive, Smash Remix is pretty cool and it sort of has NES emulation

really? guess it must be another Everdrive cart then.
ED64+ also has romhack and homebrew compatibility so you can play shit like goldfinger, DK64 swap anywhere or mario 64 sapphire, i also tried the doom and wolf3d ports and they work.
I have a Super64 (pretty much ed64+ but cheaper) and it does its job pretty well.

That's what limited memory, hardware, budget, and resources does. You'll notice a lot more cut content in older titles. Developers had to decide what was worth implementing, every little thing had to have some level of importance to them. Less staff meant there was usually some common interests between the team too. But it also meant everything included required so much more effort and effectively meant that much more. Artists couldn't just easily slap a texture or asset in without help from programmers, even composers back then needed to have some coding knowledge.

To create a game like Castlevania 64 with a cohesive tone and atmosphere throughout the entire game is a monumental effort and deserves some praise for that alone.

Hack your PS3 (every model on every FW can be hacked now) and pirate it to keep it forever.

The Wikipedia article makes it really sound like PS3 os the only one made by CAPCOM.
>>
>>7646906
The loading times are better on the overall for PS3 since the first game plays without the 4MB RAM cartridge on the Sega Saturn. I guess some may prefer that it is on one disc on the PS3 so it is faster to switch between the two games.

At the end of a systems life cycle they often have a shit ton of bad licensed/cash grav games released on them. Is it because the hardware makers simply does not give a shit anymore? See ps1/ps2 and GBA/DS

One probable reason is that there are enough resources and people with experience to do it cheaply at the end of the cobsole's life cycle. Also large enough customer base that even garbage games can sell enough, so there is little financial risk. The first few years people are learning how to use the tools and how to get most out of the system.

I think it's always been more for (baby/actual) boomers and above (my dad still watches the detective shows and masterpiece theater, Father Brown, Doc Martin, Luther, etc). Dr. Who even started out in the bboomer era, but is practically a sóynerd show now like Big Bang Theory, so that may be the sort that the more youthful normalfags in Engelant watch.

>it's so clunky

no, it's deliberate. you have to commit to every action you take. it's not unlike dark souls in that sense.

>it has no story

true. the world is very lovingly-crafted, though. still, if you want story you'll be disappointed.

>it's just like an MMO

it has none of the downtime, microtransactions, or tedious level-grinding of an MMO. you only grind for loot, like diablo or PSO.

>hunting monsters takes too long

once you get past the initial learning curve and understand how the game works, hunts should take you 10-20 mins. less if you're playing with others. if it's taking you longer, you're doing something wrong.

Overall yeah. Particularly in the earlier parts of the games yeah but there are tons of endgame and dlc (all MH dlc is free btw) quests that will give even full parties of experienced players a run for their money and have to keep up efficiency.
