What retro games have epileptic stuff like this? Preferably NES (Famicom) /Master System
4 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
glad that some rom hacks fix that.
Not sure if epileptic but I hate the rainbow effect when you open the menu in Final Fantasy

as for what would be considered epileptic causing these days, pretty much everything on NES. Even just the flashes in combat in JRPGs like Dragon Quest.
Final battle in Mitsume ga Tooru can be tough for eyes (ironically).
But the battle itself is really easy and quick, you can even cheat and throw spear at boss when he appears, it will damage him while he's preparing to attack and he will die in like 5 seconds.
that video is easy difficuitly though, you wouldn't survive on normal difficulty tanking damage against the boss like he does

besides world of ""longplays""" is actually world of TASes

Why in gods name would you play Metroid at an arcade
It was a different time. Arcades were good friends.
well it does have a password system, but only in the us one
granted they might've dummied that out
either way it's not really the kind of game for that though yeah
Could be why the Metroid password is so shit. Perfect for an arcade machine with the pressure of an instant game-ending time limit that you can only extend by putting in more money.
Panic sets in when you realize you're time's almost out and you scramble for pen and paper, wastes time writing the long-ass string down, and it also eats into your time when you enter it on your return.

>stinky antisocial neckbeard thinks his embarrassing anecdote is objective truth
damn i wish i had a big bro growing up.
cool footage OP
The Jordan Mechner journal through the time he was developing PoP is a really nice read. Part inspirational to start a project you have full control over (and make big money) and part a strong sense of 'fuck I missed the golden years of gaming and want to go back bros'.
PoP was the first game I ever played at 3 years old on my dads IBM DOS PC.

What were they thinking?
24 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
Thinking about it, yeah. The GBA had a really short lifespan when you compare it to the GBC and the NDS.
In F-Zero's case, it was probably a case that they could probably whip them up quickly by re-using the engine and making a few new tracks. Climax even had a track creator mode.
Wouldn't have change shit.
You don't make 3 games of an already poorly selling series, in a console with a ASININE engine ffs. Who the fuck asked for 3 SNES F-ZERO clones, but worse?
F-Zero Climax on DS could have been just like F-ZERO X, but with Wi-Fi Connexion to have online games just like Mario Kart DS, therefore a much better game, with potentially much more sales that in GBAss.
It would change the popularity of the games via emulation.
Fighting Comet master race.
Fighting Comet has absolutely laughable stats considering how it's unlocked.

Better question: Did anyone ever unlock the Jet Vermillion the legit way?

It's an umbilical cord. You're performing an abortion.
Cecils heals can hardly even keep up with regular mobs damage, IIRC everyone had like 900 or so HP and cecil was not even healing 300 with Cure 2/Cura. Been a long time though.
Theres lots of games like this even later on, once you get past NES you have to stray away from the popular stuff since the trend was for games to get easier.
>healer can only 1/3rd of the dmg dealt by enemies

is there a GF ability to upgrade magic or do i need to specifically farm firaga from enemies?
I love this game so much bros
Yes. If you just want to convert fire elemental magic, I think Ifrit has it. Shiva has ice and so on. Ideally, you want to convert cards into items and items into high level magic instead.

I remember when I first played it in high school and having lots of high level magic before I even got to assault the sorceress but that was because I was having fun with the game a lot and accidentally unlocked the other GF abilities.

Anyways, missile base had a boss with meltdown and aura as drawable magic if I recall. Meltdown makes this easy game to very easy imo

show us the room so we can tell you what you're obviously doing wrong
It was a huge shock to me when I discovered this game had dungeons and side scrolling parts. I never could make it past the 3rd stage.
Go to every room.
How the hell are you getting stuck here? There's like two dead ends in the entire dungeon, just take the other route.

What does vr think about the Analogue Pocket?

I'll go first.

Screen and speakers are very nice, plastic quality feels like a step or 2 above 3d printing, d pad feels cheap & facebuttons need to be pressed firmly and centered to assure the input is detected.

I imagine someone will eventually port over the MiSTer one, but it's a fairly shit core to begin with. The WS is a system with very little interest, probably because most of its library is JP only and text heavy.
It really does have an incredible screen, but everything else about it a meme
afaik this is the best list of available cores right now
Im sorry to tell you thats actually pretty close to what a game gear looked like, theres a reason the game boy kicked its ass so badly
The games will look shit since they run natively at 75hz and will need to skip frames.

why the fuck are there no USB Dreamcast controllers with VMU for PC? Emulators exist and they also emulate the VMU. What's the best way to play Dreamcast without owning the console with its shitty drive?
9 replies omitted. Click here to view.
>Probably cause the controller sucks except for the vmu
Opinion invalidated.
Emulation sucks.
It’s true though, using the control stick for more than 30 minutes makes it slippery and using the d pad for more than 15 hurts your finger because it’s concave and has sharp edges. Even the controller’s best feature, the analog shoulder buttons hurt your finger after playing too much crazy taxi. The only actual good thing about is is the face buttons are close enough together and small enough to act as a second dpad
Spot on post. It sucked that there were no alternatives that fixed these issues without creating more problems.
I have this controller in slime green.

Holy shit, this is the most hardcore racing game I've ever played. Extremely tight tracks, really sharp turns, challenging physics, and incredible speed. It's hair pullingly hard but fair. And once you've spent time mastering it, it's just awesome because you're able to zip through really sharp turns without losing speed at all.. There's no rubberbanding opponents or a fake sense of speed. It makes mario kart and f zero x look like babies first racing games.

Wipeout 1 is weird, you actually have to use first person a lot of the time because the maps are very vertical so you need to see whats coming up ahead which is way better in first person than third person IMO, I prefer wipeout 3 for that reason the maps are way more fun to learn and I like the grinding on walls mechanic AND the risk vs reward speed mechanics

Thanks for reminding me of this gem. I remember owning only a demo for it with a few minutes of one race. Forgot the game's name for at least two decades after. I gotta go back and check this baby out.
Kill yourself.
I find this with original Ridge Racer, feels very unresponsive in third person but doesn't in first person.
