Is ACGC worth checking out again? I played it back when it released but my memory is hazy - Wild World was the one I played the most. Didn’t really enjoy NH - I remember the villagers personalities being more varied in the GameCube version.

absolutely. its vibe is still so sick, and the core gameplay is all there. there are some weird quirks, but there's so much little weird stuff in it and it's still a ton of fun. i would say new leaf is the best objectively, but it was the beginning of the end in regards to AC losing itself personality and gameplay wise. every game is its own little time capsule that's worth visiting minus NH imo

I think people shit on City Folk too much. It's basically Wild World 2.0. The only legitimate criticism I ever see is the grass dying, which is fair.

Hell, I even miss the fucking pointer controls. Typing and clicking on things with that shit was comfy as hell. Typing anything on NH was dreadful in comparison.

idk if nostalgia could carry it, every game improved on the formula.

I know we have threads about this game / series every five minutes, but there isn't one right now and I have an opinion I'd like to put forth that I think has weight to it.

Pretty much every guide or discussion you come across, Bianca is believed to be the canon wife of the hero, the one you are "supposed" to choose. I don't think that's actually the case and the game guilt tripping the player into thinking they should choose her is a test. Sure you are childhood friends with Bianca and go on adventures, but after you're captured and she had the sense you were still alive what does she do? Farts around in hicksville for 10 years. If she were actually worthy of the hero she would have set out herself to find what happened. Nera on the other hand was raised to be a dainty stay at home princess wife but as soon as she is chosen by the hero, insists on following and helping him in any danger they face.

Another thing which is less official, but in these series of games there are loose connections many of which are aesthetic. Heroes usually have green or blue hair. Nera had blue hair, granting her children with the main character have blue hair making them true Dragon Quest heroes.

Bianca was a red herring all along.

this game got a bad rap but it's so good, save for team rose which i could do without, the other three groups are really fun and add a lot to the experience. has to have the best music in the franchise too even.

The source code for Red Dog: Superior Firepower, a 2000 Dreamcast-only video game was uploaded to GitHub as open-source software under the MIT License.

I wonder if anyone would bother to make a source port for it.

75000 slim, if I had a fat PS2 I’d test it but I don’t.
>>
>>9287013
I want to add that gradius v is a CD game, which means at maximum, absolute maximum, your PS2 drive is reading it at about three and a half mb a second, and even on a fat you should be getting at least those speeds.
It’s a 440 mb disc, so even if that video is half the size of the disc (which I highly doubt) and even if your network connection was 2mbs, that’s more than enough to stream the video without stuttering. It’s something on your end.

That's it then, as far as I know SMB isn't an issue at all for deckards. Many games are fine even with USB, in my experience.
>>
>>9285484
Actually, no. I have a PS2 (fat) and a PSP at my parents house but that's in a different country. I have a PS4 and a Vita but my PS4 is in the back of my closet and the Vita is in a drawer somewhere. My brother had a PS1 at some point when I was a kid and I got to play that.
>>9285497
Generally I do buy my games - I have a pretty big collection (pic related). But I also have flash carts, and now I'm going in on ODE's. And in the case of PS2, loading from HDD. Of course I prefer to have a physical copy, but some games are stupidly expensive and quite honestly there are some games that I would enjoy to play but don't care about enough to own.
