I couldn't find a 1CC thread in the catalog, so here it is. 1CC stands for one credit clear, usually being used to describe arcades, so completing a video game without using a single continue, though its meaning can vary depending on what you're playing, for example when regarding consoles, the concept of credits isn't really identical to how it is in arcades, so many consider a console 1CC to be a completion without losing a single life, instead of simply not using continues, though opinions may differ, and some still consider a console 1CC to also be a matter of simply not using continues at all instead.

>What 1CC are you currently working on?
>What's the latest 1CC you've managed to get?
>Which 1CC of yours are you most proud of getting?
>How do you perceive console 1CCs to differ from arcade?

I struggle a little with 1CCs, as I do love the idea, that of mastering whatever you're playing completely, which is what it takes to even stand a chance, but it can definitely be a shame to be on a good run only for it to go to waste near the end. I personally consider a console 1CC to be a perfect run, not losing a single life, unless we're talking about arcades, which is where this idea originated from, and with that in mind my proudest 1CC is probably Sonic the Hedgehog, the original SEGA Mega Drive classic, I grew up with it, so getting a 1CC, and with 100% completion too, was both fun and special to me.

Any of you use these large aftermarket PS2 memory cards? Do they have issues like save corruption or are they fine to use? Would be cool to have all the saves in one place without having to FTP them constantly

Some games like MGS 3 will not reliably work with any card above 8mb. It's not really worth the hassle of even 'officially licenced' larger memory cards when the 8mbs are so easy to find.

Don't fuck around with memory cards. Official ones are still cheap and worth using over chink shit that WILL fail.

If you buy used games or consoles you wouldn't have any need for these since you'd just naturally accrue memory cards without paying anything. I got 6 8mb ones and have plenty storage, though it's cumbersome to
keep track of what's on them

I've been playing games on the new playstation 2 and it's a pretty complex system. Action games like devil may cry make you get all technical with it, unlimited saga had me pissing and shitting and thinking a whole bunch, stuff like that. I don't really know if the playstation 2 has a more casual and simple side. If anyone has recommendations for relaxing or just simple ps2 games that would be neat.

It's my understanding that this thing is pretty much just for playing movies. And it has this system where it basically does proto dvd menu technology for "interactive" features. Like point and click education software. And somehow, somewhere, some people in the company really overestimated the DVD menu tech and commissioned some really unsuitable games to be made for it. Is that right?

It was kinda fun, having weapons and animals as a bit novel at the time. But I'd always rather spend my last few tokens at darkstalkers. There was a lot of competition with the MK games, Street fighter and the more linear arcade beat em ups.

I lived in that time and thought Neo Geo was rad, however in the US it was like the 3rd option. Tekken and MvC wasn't big yet.

>>9606938

I don't even like it, feels like there are far less fluidity to the fighting. Also a good lack of moves which bores me. However, just like KoF it looks beautiful.
>>
>>9608725
What fluidity? It's samurai sword fighting. You're not supposed to be mixing combos. You're supposed to get in there and get good clean power shots. It's not meant to be played like SF. It's meant to be more like Bushido Blade.
>>
>>9608760
Yeah I was talking about mixing combos. I really enjoyed doing that in other games. Last Blade too was a bit of a let down because of this.
>>
I've heard that for a few months at the height of SF2 craze it was more popular in japan when Samurai Spirits II came out, but who knows.
For me personally a pizza spot had an MVS in it and SamSho2, which I spent hours on as a kid. To this day it's my favorite arcade game.

Love Siegfried/Nightmare from Soulcalibur. Aside from his moveset, I love his story, his character-progression and the arcs he goes through throughout the games. For a fighting game franchise, Soulcalibur has a lot of really in-depth lore and well-written and interesting characters.

I really like the Blob from Clayfighter 63⅓. I remember renting this as a little kid and getting my dad to play with me, I was just mindlessly button mashing and somehow got him stuck in some kinda ridiculously long combo that went into the triple digits, about halfway through it he dropped the controller and vowed to never play this game again.
It was funny as hell.

Because the people making it were super geeks who respected the source material as much as their audience. They knew people wanted to feel like an imperial conscript just like in the movies, so that’s what they gave them. Those kinds of people are not making video games anymore, and if they are, they are being bogged down by a culturally sick committee.

They came out during the prequels but aren’t a direct result of them. BioWare decided on a middle ground between the OT and the PT, and that’s exactly what KOTOR feels like. Rumor is Yidsney is working on old republic or “high republic” movies so get ready to watch that one burn too.
