>more life sim and a very well realized one
I wouldn't say that. You can hardly do anything anywhere that isn't related to Ryo's current objective. They're really good adventure games based on Asian traditions, lots of good moments. Unfortunately lots of agonizingly boring and frustrating moments too. I'm having a hard time getting through 2
It's the first open-world game ever made that inspired gta and fallout or whatever Sega fags say.
It's literally a TV Drama game, just like Deadly Premonition, which was inspired by Twin Peaks in particular, Shenmue is a lot like those kinds of TV dramas from the 90s. I believe Twin Peaks was never meant to be entirely resolved, Shenmue at least followed through on that end.
but Half-Life 1 & 2 are so good anon.....

what can you tell me about this game /vr/ ? should i get it if its like 3 bucks ?

they're the exact same game
Yeah but the youtuber narrative decided one is bad so it needs to be parroted
It's slow as fuck. There's no way to speed the animations up. 30~40 hours long.
Less polished game, simpler mechanics but character roles are more unique, worse animations for special attacks
Infinitely more interesting story and world
interesting concept but kind of a slog to get through. it might be worth playing for a bit until you get bored.

Seems OK, if a bit easy. What's the part I'm supposed to hate? Is it just like how a vocal group of X fans hate X4 and up because they're not on Nintendo?

I like 2 and 3 the best. I also like 9 a lot (not retro but almost there). 6 is gimmick heavy and really easy but it's fun. 5 is decent. I'm not a huge fan of 4 but a lot of people here seem to love it. All of them are pretty good, really. Especially anything 8-bit or faux 8-bit.

This level has been a delight so far
Some secrets worth knowing about this stage in particular:
you can get some Ghosts n' Goblins musical easter eggs by holding down B when you choose the stage, but it stops working after Shademan's defeated
there's a branching path midway through, depending on whether you finish off the mid-boss by attacking its core, or shooting the eyes of the exterior shell
if you destroy the outer shell, you can find the Energy Balancer by having Rush dig under the Wily portrait
Biggest spoiler here:
if you destroy the inner core, then go right past the Sniper Joe, there's an area where you can fight Protoman for access to his shield, assuming you haven't yet defeated Shademan and found Protoman already in Cloudman's and Turboman's stages
Long story short, Shademan has the coolest RM stage ever.
No it wasn't. Minakuchi Engineering (who did 1, 3, 4, 5 on the Game Boy) did Wily Wars and X3. They didn't do 7.
This stage is so oddly packed with content for just a random robot master stage. The opening with the moon, all those secrets, the part with the lights going out, it just has so much more than any other stage.

wasn't there a cool website that had all this deep lore about this game?
putting it on a pedestal doesnt make it true. crying when somebody points that out or denies your whimsy doesnt make it true or make you right. does the "G" in "/OoTG/" stand for gooning, where everyone just circle jerks in worship and nostalgia? whats actually dumb is "i cant play other games anymore". thats either the dumbest, fakest take, or you need actual mental therapy for deeper issues.
jesus christ dude
>whats actually dumb is "i cant play other games anymore". thats either the dumbest, fakest take, or you need actual mental therapy for deeper issues.

Nah dude, I get what he means. Obviously it's somewhat figurative, but the level of satisfaction/nuance that OoT is capable of giving you is just unlike anything else. It's like, other games can certainly be enjoyable to a good degree, but compared to OoT there this certain hollowness to everything. It's just a uniquely good game.

Is there a ROM that works on dolphin for gamecube that I can use to test out a controller?
Why not any?
There's a homebrew that works on dolphin called gc controller test on github, just run the dol. Otherwise the official gamecube service disc if you can find it somewhere.
Send link?

Is there really no magic solution?
I saw some youtube video some guy showed where the video looked really fucking good and he used some 70 to 100-200$ cable I forgot the name of.

My Monitor/TV has component plugs, so I get clean 480p and it looks bonkers good, as clean as a DVD image. You will go from Cable TV quality to DVD image.
the carry handle was nice
Why are people trying to sell those things for $200 when a 1st revision Wii is cheap as potatoes and can play Gamecube games? I can get a used Wii and a new official Gamecube controller for less than that idiot is asking. Meanwhile a used PS2 is extremely cheap even though most PS3 consoles cannot play PS2 games and the ones that do command a premium by themselves. "Retro" market escapes any logic or reason.
They countered a failure by releasing a bigger failure?

Maybe this Christmas I'll skip replaying 1 and try to finish 2
just be sure to have a happy THIRD birthday.
you should at least finish it. the lore and story are really interesting (goes into the sort of human experimentation and super gross body horror that the first kinda skirts around). it's just a pity its weird clunky and hard as shit. I'm also a sucker for the horror trope of "female horror protagonist has to protect a child" so im a sucker for the character of Eve Brea

It goes by LibRetro naming scheme. But now that you mention it, I am questioning DOS.
Some of those are a stretch but nice
People use Retroarch for stuff like PS3 and Switch? That's a bit silly, you want to squeeze everything you can out of those emulators
Why is Deep Fear on the JP only list when it was released in europe? Just a misplacement when the chart was made?

For me, its Mario Golf for the Gameboy Color.
What a great tune.
Did you know that Camelot made another golf game for the GBC after Mario Golf and that it got translated to English not all that long ago?


Lacks the story/RPG-lite mechanic, but the golfing itself is top notch and it's a lot of fun.
>decent golf games

The PC use to be the only platform that had 'decent golf games'. Microsoft owns the Links franchise.

Yeah i found out about it about a year ago - what a pleasant surprise that was. Really feels like a meaty dlc

It looks Thief: The Black Parade, the long-awaited fan-mission campaign for Thief Gold, has finally been released! It's been 7 years in the making and it features 10 expansive FMs, covering an original story with its own protagonist. Thoughts, fellow taffers? Been waiting a while for this one, gonna reinstall T1 to try it out.

Here's the TTLG thread about it:

So finally some kind of convincing theory about the big dot levels was proposed: they contain a secret exit that leads, eventually, to fortresses: canilla dome 1 eventually leads to vanilla fortress, forest of Illusion 1 leads to forest fortress, and Valley of bowser 2 leads to Valley fortress.
The yellow big dot Vanilla Dome 3 is still a mystery, though.

I bet you believe the whole "Miyamoto dislikes DKC" thing
Nta but I'm 33 and it never appealed to me visually, too many large uninterrupted chunks of level geometry with really basic color and texture, ruins the look for me because the character and enemy sprites all look great. I don't think it ruins the game or anything, I think its fantastic and I've 100%'d it twice at least, but I've never cared for the visuals or music. Most people like both, I just never did.
>forest of Illusion 1 leads to forest fortress
Shouldn't it be Forest of Illusion 4 instead of 1, since that one is closer to the fortress whilst still being on the main path.
They probably used to have 3 exits and it was scrapped.
probably just visual variety

That's SlitherSquares, a square-focused spinoff of the genre-defining things-falling-into-a-well game WildSnake
It's actually really good but the fact that the snakes all just look like clumps of square tiles really turned off a lot of fans of the main series so it never took off

We actually learned in a previous thread that Willy Wombat is the actual good 3d platformer on Saturn that segalordx DOESNT want you to know about, because it's actually good and doesn't make for good clickbait screenshots
I'm a bit surprised that it didn't come to the west considering the voices are already in english.
solid scotformer
Looks fun, what is it?
3D platformer with tank controls, don't expect something like Croc though, you can't even kill enemies in this game.
