Playing through this again after 10 years and holy shit.

>Medbay, lil spooky
>Engineering, Kinda spooky
>Hydroponics, gloves are coming off
>Operations, super spooky
>Recreation, fucking terrifying

Im playing on hard and I know this isnt the hardest game, but holy fuck, this shits got my heart racing and adrenaline pumping and its incredible. I also like how Thiefs stealth seems to be implemented, just no indication because no lightgem. Can anyone confirm if its 1:1 of Thief since it is the same engine, or is it altered?

If they have a default name or a well established known name for the character (Loto/Erdrick) I just call them "Hero". If there are recruitable characters with the same premises I stuck to simple four letter names like "Lily, Enix, Jack, Anne, Sara, Gary, Thor" I find it ruins immersion when you do retarded shit like these reddlt faggots.

Do you have a favorite retro video game weapon?
Mine is the Grenade Launcher from Quake. It's a lot of fun to bounce grenades around corners and into monsters, or lob them high into enemies far away.

>>6931703
The bounce sound really does make it sound incredibly heavy, doesn't it? Kinda fits with the short range the launcher has.

>>6931686
That one's fun. The rate of fire is so crazy high that you can actually easily waste ammo for it, and not necessarily the way you think.

Goldeneye 64 has a limit for how many hits that a character can register in a short period of time, and the RCP90 easily goes over that limit due to its insane rate of fire, leading to many bullets hitting, but not registering as damage. Of course, you're hitting a guy with a torrent of bullets like that and you'll get back to damaging him really, really soon.

I love that it's theoretically so powerful that the game can't quite keep up with it.

/vr/ being the land of the jarpigs and fatformers, it's pretty difficult to get a sustained conversation about fighting games going. Now that 6th Gen is allowed, however, there should be far more to discuss.

Tell me, what do you think is the value of playing old fighting games? Emulation and ports give a lot of these a little bit of second life, and many scenes are still going about as strong as you could hope for, but what use is there for younger people to jump in, when new fighting games are released all the time, and even early 2010s & late 2000s games would be considered dated by today's standard?

Just about the only scene that manages to consistently attract young blood is Super Smash Bros. Melee, which many ignorant purists incessantly insist isn't a real fighting game. So there must be some failing with its peers (or, in said purists' deranged mind, "superiors"), certainly? The arcade boomers are not going to be around forever, and with their retirement, even long-lauded staples like Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike will find themselves without a playerbase, either of experts or entirely.

It's a doomsday scenario where modern fighting games continue to get worse, the fans of the genre become more casual, and the craft of playing fighting games becomes harder and harder to find. Again, only SSBM's community has managed to seize mainstream viewership, inspire hardcore devotion, champion the artistry, and maintain the competition. At the current rate, every other game will die out. And what's more, there isn't even a Canon of the best of the best yet, so young people don't even know what to come back to.

Don't get me wrong I'm certainly not saying 3S is perfect, just that it's better that A3.
>>
>>6931207
Being the biggest title on Fightcade isn't a "low player count". That's pulling bigger numbers than say FEXL or KI. And you haven't even tried refuting my point about A3 infinites. What the fuck are you even trying to say? Back your argument about why you think 3S is better with points about how it functions.

>>
>>6928673
While Jet Set Willy and Technician Ted are known as the progenitors of the Willynician genre (formerly Metroidvania), for me the Dizzy series for the Speccy is a high watermark of the genre, going on to influence such classic Willynicians as Super Metroid and Castlevania: Symphony of the Night.

In 1983, just a few months after the US destroyed its own games industry with what is widely regarded as the worst video game ever made, the highly innovative Manic Miner was released for the Speccy, single-handedly kickstarting the 2D playforming genre and igniting the seemingly unstoppable boom of the UK microcomputer scene. Why were US developers so primitive and underdeveloped compared to their British counterparts?

>>6930870
Mario isn't my favorite videogame franchise, but I kinda get why it's usually revered.

Sonic, Spyro and Crash Bandicoot, for example, have better presentation and characters, but the level design and controls of those series usually don't introduce very interesting mechanics or aren't well thought like the ones found in Super Mario games. IMO, none of these mascots have a moveset that is simple, but yet complex as Mario in Super Mario 64 or Donkey Kong (GB).

TL;DR: Mario is a very boring and archaic series in terms of presentation, aesthetics and characters, but the structure of his games is usually pretty good.

Dude, mario is absolutely loved in Japan. It's one of the most universally loved things there are.

Hey /vr/, I got a Genesis recently and I'm looking for recommendations. There are a few games I've played before and know I want (Sonic games, Castlevania Bloodlines, Rocket Knight, Streets of Rage) and I've been trying out a lot of games on emulators before I get them. I'm mostly a fan of platformers and beat 'em ups but I'm also trying to get into shoot 'em ups. Any help would be appreciated.

Get a Sega CD as well or a MegaSD.
Sonic CD is a really great game and so is Hideo Kojima's SNATCHER (a visual novel/interactive anime film).
It's easier to burn your own CDs or play them on a MegaSD than to track down used copies.

Capitalism is the opposite of corporatism. Corporatism (ie, big businesses using politicians to own everything) is objectively leftwing and is a step towards communism, because it, like communism, is against competition and opportunity.
