>Due to the time-consuming nature of the modeling process, Diddy's model was used as the base for Dixie; the ponytail was then added, the clothes were changed, and his features were made more feminine.

One of the most shocking and unexpected moments in retro gaming was when forced feminization came to a Nintendo platform.

In Manhunt 2 the shooting levels really are pure action and they suck dicks.
In Manhunt 1 in most of the shooting levels you still have to be sneaky and will get overwhelmed and die if you act like Rambo.
>2 is worse than 1, but has better executions
apt, but 1 is not only better, its a masterpiece
- dont bother with 2 if you havent played 1
- dont play 1 on ps2, theres no right stick camera. xbox is best or you can mod the pc version
- configure your play environment as if you were playing survival horror
the gunplay is fine if youre going for headshots every time, which you should be.

The MiSTer is one of the easiest fucking things to set-up ever, literally all you need on it is an internet connection, a couple of scripts, and it'll download everything you need by itself.

>unlike mister which you would need a chain of adaptors to do
What? Mine goes from VGA to 5 cable BNC. One cable. I guess if you only have SCART you'd need an adapter, but who doesn't have a PVM?

It's overpriced junk that exists only for "retro collectors" to buy for a photoshoot. Nobody is seriously using these analogue things for any gameplay, I guess a few people might use the pocket for 10 minutes at best.

It bugs me that Mega Man STILL doesn't know Proto Man is his brother 30 years later, according to the Japanese materials.

The only handheld sonic game that's any good.

Why Sonic Adventure 2 is the Best Sonic Game Ever Made

Tails Adventure is a pure soul and comfiness. Pocket Adventure is technically ok, when you want some more official classic (almost classic) sonic. PA definetely has a better level design than a Advance 1.
it's a 10/10 game, IGN said so.

3rd is the most ambitious of them. But it was 2006, so it's always most buggy. Also levels are clusterfuck, but some people like it this way.

playing this for the first time, it's actually pretty good

Man the contrarianism of this place has really reached critical levels. How pathetic.
OP here, I decided to stick around and am after the hospital now. Not gonna lie the game is boring especially once you get a grip on how combat works and have better weapons. Feels like a massive step down from the previous entries, burping monsters? Seriously? The one thing that keeps me going is wanting to see what will happen next in the appartment and that's being ruined, apparently standing near random objects kills me now and I can't heal anymore.
>When does it get good?

>apparently standing near random objects kills me now and I can't heal anymore.

You can use candles in the apartment to remdy that, but yes it sucks
gets better during the escort quest.

Alright fellas Its time for another soundtrack thread. Everyone seemed to love the comfy 90s/early 2000s theme so here's a few of my favorites from last thread to get things started. Feel free to post your favorites bros


The playlist I created from last thread will be updated throughout the week with your contributions. Like before, I'll try to weed out the extended versions of songs for easier listening

What is /vr/'s thoughts on The Karate Kid: The Video Game?
le hidden gem
I can't remember any details about it other than it was vaguely annoying
It's a shitload of fuck!
bros, I'm finally watching Cobra Kai... holy shit, how can something modern have SOUL?
The lead programmer of this game went on to work on some other release for Namco in whose ROM he left an hilarious angry rant about his co-workers on The Karate Kid and how much he wanted to kill all of them especially one slacker who'd never show up to work half the time and a thot who used to brag about all the sexy stuff she did with her Chad boyfriend (she coded the minigames in TKK).

Do you know of any romantic story regarding retro game devs? Other than the Sierra owners being a married couple, and Sakurai working along with his wife.
I often wonder if any game dev got to fuck a female fan, like rockstars did.

What if OP is a girl? what upsets you about it?
This thread is nice, I didn't know about the Squaresoft couple who worked on CT and Xenogears, or the story behind IGA and his wife he met doing playtests of Rondo.
This might actually be one of the few threads that has some interesting discussion that isn't the typical shit, yet you are complaining about it because "muh girls!"

I have a very similar memory to you. It gets really hazy after the forest level.
One of the most frustrating things was losing Minnie and then having to find the way into that room with the 6 angels and guessing the right one to get her back..
considering the game is like, 4 or 5 levels long that's probably a good thing
were all their 8-bit domestic titles just reskinned Disney games?

They also ported Shadowgate, Deja Vu, and Uninvited.

any way to emulate this on PC? Please, Denise is in there! I need it


I cannot believe how much better the levels are in this than the base game. If you somehow replaced London with this I honestly think TR3 would be remembered a lot more fondly.

I would start with 1. 3 in particular ramps up the difficulty. Try 1 and if you like it work chronologically. If you liked Underworld also, Legend and Anniversary are the "prequels" to that and I like them. The classic series is completely seperate though
>tfw AoD is my favourite
How? Not to put you down Anon but I played through it start to finish for the first time this year and it is literally one of the worst games I've ever played.
Are either of these good?


If so, which is better?
