Found a japanese ad for TMNT3 where they have infinite lives with the infinite symbol. I checked and the symbol is still in the game.

I wish the screenshots weren't so bad. All the grey turned to blue for some reasons.

It was probably part of the settings menu that lets you set number of lives and select a stage but taken out because it's a little much for actual playing. The small scores on the screenshots also tell us they used the stage select.

The Journeyman Project trilogy, I've just been replaying it
>>
>>7464292
The original Journeyman Project (get the turbo version) was heavy on security. This should help out anyone who needs help in that area with the game:
TSA Entry Code: 6894895
Temporal Security Left Annex Monitor Code #42: 0524133
Historical Code For Disc: 0291384


Also, a few cheaper games from that era, but I'm enjoying them for what they are:
D (PS1)
Light House (PC, Sierra)
The Crystal Key (PC)
Dracula The Last Sanctuary (PC)
Beyond Atlantis (PC)
There was a really cheap one that I didn't like called Mysterious Mansion or something for the PC and Sega CD and a terrible one on a boat for the PS1 (the graphics were almost non existent).

As a kid it blew my mind when somehow I unlocked the ghost racers in time trial. Does the manual even mention it? I feel like it does not. The ghost racers are the runs of the devs or play testers.

I only ever owned Double Dash. I beat everything except the last 150cc marathon race where you have to beat every track in a row to get the cup and I just dropped it completey without even trying.

Years later I decided to play it out the blue and thought what the hell why not just do the last cup right off the bat and I did it with little issue. That was weird. Definitely had a lot of trouble with it back when I played it a lot.

Why is it so reviled?

Bust/Slash wasn't confusing at all. It was the best idea 3 had, and I'm glad it carried over into the far superior SS4.
It basically doubles the cast as the difference in movesets completely changes your gameplan.
Bust Galford and Ukyo are fucking beasts compared to their slash versions.

that's fair. desu i think, absence of kyle katarn aside, rogue one works reasonably well as 'dark forces the movie'

This game had such a specific and dark feel through it like the Empire Strikes Back, the only other times I had this feeling were the X-Wing and Tie Fighter games, Shadows of the Empire and Jedi Knight.
This game needs more love.

Anyone else see the new lost vikings port in the blizzard arcade collection?
It adds the genesis exclusive levels to the snes version, and the genesis world intros.

here's a comparison of the old versions
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FBHmCx722Qg

here's the definitive snes version. if we're lucky there's a new rom to find.

Man, look at this, this and the Natsume remakes are the new standard to be beaten by retro revivals.
I still remember years ago when Blizzard simply put the snes games roms on their site and Rock'n'Roll Racing rom didn't even have music because of rights and shit, the emulator package was zsnes tier too, and they called that the BLIZZARD CLASSIC.

Almost none of the criticisms for this game make sense.
>Over-the-top cutscenes
Go play MGS2, 3, and 4.
>Favoring a grey(-ish) palette to a blue(-ish)
So what? It suits the cold, industrial feel better.
>Sucky voice re-recordings
Nothing could be done the original recordings were too compressed/noisy to use on anything but the PlayStation.
>You can eliminate the enemies across the map. MGS2 mechanics weren't made for MGS1 maps!
You could also do this in MGS2, they work as intended.
>The OST sucks
That's too subjective, but I agree, it's less memorable. I also can see how someone could prefer the more industrial & ambient OST of TTS.
In-conclusion: FUCK YOU. I LIKED IT.

Do you get all your opinions from ecelebrities?
>>
>>7463615
I consider myself neutrals. I desperately wanted to play TTS back when it first came out, being a MGS fag, but was broke at the time. and couldn't find a copy for the life of me.
when I finally got to play it years later, but still not late enough to be a jaded fuck, I found all the criticism to be more or less true, and the original to be superior.
more than anything I find TTS lacks subtlety.

Should I pick up dance dance revolution for ps2 for fun and exercise?

Also, do ps2s still work anymore? Can u emulate them or anything on raspberry pis somehow?
9 replies omitted. Click here to view.

>>7465916
Literally picked a PS2, a dance pad, DDRMAX +DDRMAX2 a couple of weeks ago, and it's been some of the most fun I've had in a long while. A couple hours in I'm sweating balls, exhausted, and yet, I'm still compelled to play. Just bite the bullet on the upfront cost (it's only a buck fifty, tops), and you'll get hours of good entertainment, and some decent cardio while you're at it. My only complaint is the dance pads are a bit slick, and struggle to stay in one spot, but it's a struggle I can easily work past, and I'm sure I'll upgrade in the future.

No, they all simultaneously exploded as soon as the PS3 came out, just like the PS3s did when the PS4 came out, and like the PS4s did when the PS5 came out. Tough luck, junior.

I'm thinking of giving the ~$20 ones on amazon a shot.

Those exact ones, probably. They were about $20 a pop, and I got them on Amazon, too.
