>If the player saves their game in the middle of the battle and waits over a week (At least 8 days) before playing again, The End will have died of old age. The player can also just set their PlayStation 2's internal clock 8 days ahead to get the same result.

using the platform's internal clock was nothing new. Devs did this on computers in the 80's.

Also what a stupid gimmick in this case, as literally only one thing in the game changes over time.

>peak era of gaming
MGS3 came out about 5 years after the peak of gaming. While things were much better in '04 than they have been any time since, things progressively got worse and worse every year after '99 or so. Not saying that no good games ever came out after '99, but the industry we loved during the 80's and 90's was being killed off and replaced with mainstream corporatized bullshit being marketed to low-IQ normies with ADD and "shiny object syndrome" and the decisions about which games get developed are made by suit wearing executive pricks with business degrees who never played a game ever in their entire faggoty lives.
>>
>>8258530
the original design doc was that the fight would take days, realtime, like real WW2 sniper duels did. having the end die of old age was like the bad ending for being too shitty to win properly
i think the version we got is much better though. it is possible to rush him with a handgun or whatever but there's a sniper in the arena and the tense back-and-forth is preserved. my first time fighting this bitch it took me 45 minutes real-time and i had an absolute blast

Yes, of course. No one who says the time limit mechanic is bad or a mere "gimmick" can substantively back up their argument without vague complaints and outright dismissals that it's annoying or unfair. The mechanic works fine for the purposes of the game. On the one hand the point is to plan things and to not do things all at once, for another the game is properly designed around it, and for another it's tremendously forgiving. Farming and storing rupees is a breeze, you never have to worry about running out of rupees or items, you can slow down time which is more than enough time to complete any dungeon, (and even if it's not, you can warp back and unless you're brain-dead you can remember the solution to the puzzle you just solved 10 minutes ago, it adds a matter of minutes to get back to where you were before.)

But it seems to me that for that it would be even more perfect, like

One cycle is roughly 2 hours, seems perfect for a fixed daily amount.

You'd think, but it never worked out that cleanly. Owl saves helped, but it was just stressful to be playing under the influence of two time limits.

Any language is viable for games on any system as long as it compiles to efficient machine code. 40 years ago well optimized compilers for HLLs didn't exist, and would take weeks to compile if they did. Today you can write games for the 2600 in BASIC.

>>8259068
There are. Unless your definition of "good" is letting you compile your VS project and have it run at the same speed, and resolution as your desktop PC. No. Like the easter bunny those don't exist. But if you actually know how to code, as opposed to trying to copy and paste someone elses PC code, and how to use optimization you can get code running many times faster than just pasting shit in and running whatever random compiler with default options.

Is installing an Optical Drive Emulator (ODE) to disc-based consoles frowned upon?

The Saturn ODE can do that. Also the PS3 can emulate this for PS1 games. All this from experience. Don't know about others.

>>8259614
it does to an extent. but it doesn't emulate the skipping and low performance of a dying laser, which is most of them.

Retard anon who was trying to fix music skipping on xstation and thought it was overheating in ps1 laser repair thread. It was the SD card. Got a certified genuine sandisk card, full formatted it, completely fixed. Integral SD card I was using must've been fake or knackered. If you get an xstation, make sure you use a legit SD card!

>>8260162
Well, that's not surprising, given they are not really meant for gaming, more for enterprise-level shit. Funny how even DOSBox is probably better for that at this point.

>>8260189
They are meant for as accurate emulation of physical hardware as far as guest programs are concerned as possible.

>X-Men cabinet isn't the six player version, its only four player and doesn't come with the two other X-Men arcade classics (X-Men: Children of the Atom, and X-Men vs. Street Fighter) Also if they did make this they would probably fuck it up and not put Online multiplayer.
>No Four Player Avengers themed cabinet with (Spider-Man: The Video Game, The Punisher, Captain America and The Avengers, Avengers in Galactic Storm) with online multiplayer.
>No Marvel themed cabinet with all four Marvel arcade classics. (Marvel Super Heroes, Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter, Marvel vs. Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes, Marvel vs. Capcom 2: New Age of Heroes)
They could literally put all Marvel property arcade games neatly across three cabinets, but no. Instead we still don't have Spiderman, or mvc2. And its a constant mesh mash of different combinations of the same games on different cabinets.

Never said impossible. Just uncommon. We were having a few in-person retro LAN parties per year at my place before COVID. Then COVID hit and a bunch of the regulars were too scared to meet up. After a while, the whole thing just died off. The fact is most adult gamers just want to play alone at home, and if they do multiplayer, it's online. Retro gaming is growing but it's still a niche.

Extremely original games, extremely low sales (after MDK). Why did gamers not appreciate their innovative games?

Also
>The "Entertainment" suffix was chosen because Perry believed that, should the studio attempt to co-operate with Hollywood film production companies, such companies would rather work with an "entertainment" company than with a "games" company.[1] Despite this precaution, Shiny was often mistaken for a pornography production company.[1]
