There's a brightness setting in the service menu.
>Did they use some stupid monitor with the original?
It might have had a different expected voltage on the RGB signals.
Do people not like Pac-Mania? I loved it and I didn't even discover it until unlocking it in Namco Museum for the Gamecube.

And the music is so good it got remixed for Sm4sh.
Looks fun to me

Is that PC or ps2?
Pacman has always been women's favorite video game

You sound like a fag to me no offense
But it's true, anon. Not a single person on the planet ever heard of this game before that bundle. Not even the people who made it.

Don't mind the OG model 1 Sega Genesis sitting next to my mini consoles, it's just there for size comparison & to show that I still don't plan selling my old consoles.

I like the convenience of mini consoles. I can hack it, add as many games as I want including hacked versions of multiple games, including patching game genie codes for games as hard as Wolverine Adamantium Rage. I also like customizing the splash screen, adding my own custom menu music & I can even change the backgrounds. I don't have to have my OG consoles plugged in either thanks to these mini consoles.

Does anyone have mini consoles?

Agreed, the PS mini was very disappointing. Thankfully my hacks & customization of the PS mini made it better & I only bought it for $20 at Best Buy.

Understandable. I like that I own both the OG hardware consoles & the mini consoles, I like that I have options to switch between them.

I had never used the analog controller for any of the PS1 games. But I think I should have for games like RE2 since there was a dual shock version of that game.


I have a NES, SNES and MD mini. They're cool to pull out and plug into the TV when my old vidya pals are around. I also have a Mister but I keep that in my office.

i'm sad we never got the tower of power that japan got for the genesis mini.

it's really funny
Yup, those mini's are very cool to pull out & plug. I have carrying cases for them for when I travel.

Yeah, I wanted a tower of power for my mini too.
Got a PC Engine mini and Astro City Mini V. Everyone knows the Astro V's a huge letdown because of the input lag but I just can't be bothered to return mine.
PCE mini's nice but they should've included a second controller

So as a kid i was heavily into star trek ever since i got Star Trek Armada 2 on my pc. Throughout the years i have played a few others as well like Elite force 1, Legacy and armada 1. Are there any GREAT star trek games out there that are must plays? What kino am i missing out on anons?

Being serialized is not the problem, the problem is turning what were ensemble shows into an universe that revolves around one character. Or at least that's Discovery, I haven't watched SNW yet.
SNW is basically TOS fanfiction. it's not bad but it has the same problem with continuity as discovery and is about as subtle with social commentary as a tactical nuke.
I loved 25th Anniversary and Judgment Rites. Will try Final Unity, never heard of it before.
Was going to say this. Mass Effect is the closest thing we got to this Star Trek experience. 1 and 2 are good, 3 is ok

>some of the finest RPGs ever made
>trilogy sold over 3 million copies
Never heard of this trilogy before? Are they blobbers? I can't tell by screenshots. I'm always looking for a good blobber I've missed.
Yep, now there's a developer. *sip*
You have convinced me to try this series
they just remade if for ps4, nunce
The movement is like blobbers, but the combat is grid based isometric. It's based on The Dark Eye , which is a tabletop game that was more popular than D&D in Germany.

Why is this game so underrated?
It's even more baffling that the general zoomer consensus is that 7 is one of the best and 8 is one of the worst.

It doesn't affect you until people stop making good games altogether. But then I guess there's a reason we're all here on /vr/...
I think you're right. Still, there is an enormous library of retro games and I've not played a fraction of what I ought to. I'm not too fussed about them not making games for us anymore because I can just go on Vimm's Lair and find something that is for me
The lootbox comparison doesn't stand, it's more like complaining that a game has an easy mode or optional checkpoints.
I know, I just wanted to be facetious. Isn't that what we do here on this site?
Metal Man is OP. Just spam his blades all day and speed running is easy even for casuals. The game was still developing its formula at this time too. Set the standard for the games to come.

So I replayed a few hours of Valkyrie Profile and remembered how much you need to be on your toes in this game for missables and shit. Makes it a bit of a chore to replay but I really like the scenarios in this game.
Is the second game also like that or is it more straight-forward?

Second game is very straightforward aside from 1 fucking thing. You have to remember after chapter 4 you get weapons that are determined by if your whole party is at level 45 or not. This is the only way to get worthwhile weapons. Everything else is fine.

They final dungeon 1/2 way through is really fucking annoying too but that's a spoiler so I won't tell you.
I like tits and ass and feet are gross.

How connected is the plot to the first game? I'm wondering if I should press on or watch a summary or something.
The random dungeons were suck a fuck you, you could either get a bunch of stuff or it was just an empty hole
Not at all. Could easily happen before, could after. A lot of the same characters though, but a lot of new ones too.
There are no random encounters in 2

It's pretty well-known by now that the Game Boy Color remake of Dragon Warrior III has unused Monster Medals for the entire bestiary of DWIV, but looking through them, this very last one here doesn't look like any monster I recognize from it. Maybe it was meant to be a new superboss like Divinegon and GranDragon?

probably the final boss
Pretty amazing that they had a new unique boss design rather than pal swapping an existing one, but of course that's when they do that that we don't get the game.
The final boss of what
There's already two medals for Psaro, unless the superboss was going to be an un-transformed version of him (back before Toriyama turned him into faux-Sephiroth).
He looks cute in this picture

Have you ever remembered a game you played as a kid and enjoyed, but when you think about it you realize how fucking bad it was? Countdown Vampires is my example.
Rented it, hated it
Why was this nigga not wearing a shirt?
I got Chaos Legion port for PC almost on release and I remember playing it a lot and liking the Legion and monsters designs, but looking back I wouldn't touch that even if I were paid to do so. Maybe I played it too much or now that I can play other things I don't like it anymore, unlike back then that I only had three or four games to cycle through.
The same happens with PoP: Warrior Within.

Nothing in a dungeon for this game is worth back tracking for. The loot is dogshit, usually just a cookie. The best stuff is in magicant
You're retarded
I always just go down to the left as much as possible till I find it then go back the way I came
I drew my own map.

heh, nothin personnel kid

Sega goes third party.
I lost my virginity.
WCW & ECW is bought out by the WWF.
On the plus side, Slipknot released the best album ever.

Games I enjoyed in 2001 are Shenmue, Sonic Adventure 2, Seaman, WWF No Mercy, & WWF Smackdown 2.

What games did you play or enjoyed in 2001?
5 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
Not too much but there was more blood and stool than i was expecting.
I was born in 2001 and wanna play some games that were made in my birthyear. Any GBA/GC games made in that year you recommend?

GameCube had Luigi's Mansion, Pikmin, Super Monkey Ball, Wave Race, Smash Bros. Melee, Rogue Leader. My favorites are Pikmin and Monkey Ball.

I don't know GBA very well but some notable 2001 titles seem to me to be: Advance Wars, ChuChu Rocket!, F-Zero: Maximum Velocity, Golden Sun, Magical Vacation, Mario Kart: Super Circuit, maybe some Mega Man stuff, maybe Rayman I dunno, Tactics Ogre: The Knight of Lodis, a couple of ports of older Mario games, Wario Land 4, Castlevania: Circle of the Moon.

I just googled "2001 PC games" and Google said (among other things): Max Payne, Diablo II: Lord of Destruction, Gothic, Black & White, Grand Theft Auto III, Tropico, Civilization III, the aforementioned Arcanum and Ahriman's Gift, Baldur's Gate II: Throne of Bhaal, Serious Sam: The First Encounter, Devil May Cry.
GTA III was most significant. But besides that the usual Genesis Sonic games, Crash 3, Spyro 3, and NES Super Mario Bros. And Tekken 3, what a masterpiece that game is.
