Which mega man level had the best aesthetic design? I personally love frost mans level from MM8.
31 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
I wish MMX followed classic's aesthetic more often, the games are so good but I always hated the boring gray buildings a good chunk of them take place in, and when they do something different it's always very uninspired
>Own it but never played it more than an hour to be honest, so I never beat it. One of these days I will, just don't have the motivation.

Do it, it's genuinely one of the tighest designed ones alongside MM9. The pacing is excellent.
ignoring the most kino game, 7 with it's music, and atmosphere.
It's pathetic, just because you don't like it. It shows how good it is that you have to deliberately ignore something you don't like.

I think Pic Related is? Also which is the best Darkstalker/Vampire game?

The best games are generally considered to be Night Warrors/Vampire Hunter and vanilla Vampire Savior. Darkstalkers 1, like most other first entries, is pretty rough around the edges and lacking/awkward in places. Has great aesthetics and soundtrack, though. Vampire Savior 2 and Vampire Hunter 2 are basically just worse versions of Vampire Savior, pretty much all of the system and balance tweaks were downgrades. Chronicle/Chaos Tower is kind of a mess that is supposed to be a combination of all the games in the series but is really just another worse version of Savior with more downgrades and inaccuracies thrown in.

Enchanted Castle wasn't that bad. Yeah, I said it.
>dat naked girl

Is that the Arab chick? I don't remember seeing her naked in my version of the game.
from what I've read, the problem with enchanted castle is
>they started developing the game before they were even aware of what the genesis was supposed to be
>some of the team moved to sonic projects before it ended
Just lazy writing for combination, as if it was a lock.
Japanese version only

best game

I might be alone in this, but I actually prefer THPS1 over 2. I mean 2's great and everything, but it feels more "padded" to me. Like a lot more shit was shoved into it and goals made more annoying in an attempt to keep the player engaged with the game longer. Not to mention the money based upgrades.
Meanwhile 1 is just pure arcade style fun. I can 1cc the whole fucking game in like half an hour and still do so. It's everything it needs to be and has replay value in modes like free skate and multilayer games. Perfection.

I feel like THPS2 is like if Capcom had made a street fighter game where you had to beat every opponent 3 times before you could complete the game, and had to unlock special moves. Know what I mean? They took a nice, fun and simple ideal and overdid it by a TON.
Based, THUG2 is good but it feels more Jackass than Tony Hawk
i had good fun making retarded long combos but the ability to get out of the skateboard i feel made it way to easy and killed the balance between versatility and difficulty previous games had. I still played it quite a lot but it was more like a relaxing game to de-stress a bit sometimes.
The sequel was 1000 times better, everything went to shit after that

Whats your personal limit on buying retro shit?
137 replies and 17 images omitted. Click here to view.
I don't pay to play. I pay to own and to make poorfags butthurt
I'll only pay if I feel it's more convenient to me than pirating.
I pay to collect. It's not my fault you're too poor to have your own collection.
$20 for a game, $60 for a console.
I have my childhood games and I'm fine with emulation and flashcarts. I only buy physical if I find them cheap.
>buying shit that is free
Emulation is superior, if you want the original hardware go for it, but play retro video games. End of discussion.

How come so few burgers realize how easy it is to live the rgb meme just by buying a rgb to component transcoder and slapping it onto their old consumer sets?

I swear if people actually knew they existed pvm's would be far less of a thing and less people would be memed into electrocuting themselves by attempting to open their crt classis so they can wire rgb patches into their set's on screen display

Thank you. I hate constantly being told that these games are meant to be played with giant ass window blinds. Not even arcade monitors looked like that and those were hand picked for specific games by the designers.
>It says transcoder right on the fucking case
You're making us burger-tachi look bad, anon-kun
Rent free.
Yeah, I just looked at the product page. It's not a line doubler, you are right. I'm retarded. My bad. Sorry
this and you don't need to electrocute yourself opening the set. you can add RGB to plenty of sets for about 3$ in components if you count the connectors/cables. also circuit bending and trying out circuits on tv sets where there's no info on the internet is fun. better than watching RGB master class videos on youtube and complaining about how expensive everything is.

Been emulating fourth gen consolefag games. Why do SNES games have such terribly compressed audio, and how do I fix it? Genesis games sound crystal clear.
29 replies and 3 images omitted. Click here to view.
Internally I believe the SNES outputs music a sample rate of 32khz, while Genesis does the standard 41khz sample rate all be it noisy due to analog noise.

The muffle is normal, just don't worry about it. It you're playing SNES try Super Metroid if you're into that style of game.

No it doesn't. It always always ALWAYS sounds like antique toys made of tin (but especially cheaply made ones) being thrown around in, and rubbed up against the walls of, a metal shack. The compositions sound great in some games and crappy in others, just like on any popular console, but the instruments are always a substantial weakness. It's true that the synthesis is more flexible in certain important ways than the SNES' sample playback, but it's less flexible in other, much more important ways. If you want to play Mozart or Metallica on SNES, you gather some orchestral samples and some guitar samples and some rock drumset samples, and it all works out reasonably well. If you want to play Mozart or Metallica on Genesis, you struggle hard to mold your poorly-made-tin-toys-being-abused noises into weak suggestions of classical and rock instruments, squeeze in some fancy dynamics where you can, and lean HEAVILY on the listener's generosity. Even at its best, Genesis sound is jangly and strident, and that is never going to suit every composition.


Certainly the NES embarrassingly outperforms the Genesis in this respect. Its synthesized instruments are not in-your-face buzzy or squawky. They are pure and simple and nice, and they can be used for many purposes. Whether the NES sounds better than the SNES is endlessly arguable.

It's just bizarre that so many arcade machines used the same kind of bzzz fffrrrzz bwAAH music as well. Why not try to sound more like the Master System or the NES or something else like that? Plenty of primitive old games sound awesome, or at least inoffensively bland. Why accept that horrible buzzy jangle? Surely it wasn't a matter of saving money on hardware. Making a square wave or a triangle wave can't be expensive can it?
Only model 1 genesis sounded like that.
Genesis Plus GX?

Is that important? How long has it been since the Genesis itself has been updated? Is Sega putting out a lot of hardware revisions these days?

Underrated sincere post.
Has a ton of charm, but the gameplay is a bit offputting to me.

Jane Whittaker is giving away the source code to the Alien vs. Predator game for the Atari Jaguar.
This source was already released years ago, though?
Will anyone bother to port it to PC?
A literal giveaway for source code? He clearly doesn't care.
Just google it. Jaguar AvP source has been floating around since 2008.

Anyone played chaos legion?

I wish we could get a sequel if it's based on novels
Yeah and her gameplay sucks she's like trying to finish DMC with handgun gunslinger Dante only i.e a tedious slog.
Underrated game. Better than any Devil May Cry. Best Jojo stand simulator until Astral Chain came out. Will never get a sequel because most everyone forgot it.
saw a retro tuber review that called it shit recently, but its clear the guy didn't unlock the player moves nor get that far.

game is fun but perfect thanatos' drill auto attack sucks hard unless you're on the 1 hit kill mode.
also in the official ost the next to last boss "azrail" has alt alt song for your summoned legions which kinda makes the final boss not having one more significant.
It's really not very good. Boring and clunky.

What if they remake Xenogears in this artstyle with Octopaths engine?
4 replies omitted. Click here to view.
would be complete shit
>What if they remake Xenogears with a dogshit artstyle
reading shit like this makes me want to puke
if they remake it it would be in the same way they remade Trials of Mana. A remake of Xenogears wouldn't be a bad idea considering the base game wasn't even finished but i don't think there would be enough interest to greenlight it. Even the mechanics in Xenogears are shit, anything would be better in the gameplay aspect, the only cool things Xenogears had were its story, concepts and settings but the game was tedious and shit to play.
What game is that in the pic?
But this looks like shit
