Preservation is dead. Is this the future you wanted?
i do not care
>>5578243yeah I could literally care less about a promotional version of DDP having the game itself is fine
>>5578243cave is a terrible company the sooner you accept that the sooner your life will move forward
Why won't they be dumped tho?
>some actually unreleased stuff>mostly slightly tweaked versions of already known and dumped gamesI'm more concerned about Marble Madness 2 and Beavis and Butthead.
>>5578243There are very few true preservationists on this board. This is a pirate board.
For everyone that claims it's dead, even the preservationists waste too much on dumping discs and cabinets while the ones who have no money could spend time on archiving the freeware, ROM hacks, Flash games, homebrew or whatever. You got a copy of Command & Conquer: Attack Copter from pogo.com laying around? Do you have the original versions of SFXVI for X68000 laying around that was on the original website? No? Exactly.>tfw No-Intro handles digital DLC for disc-based systems & Redump handles disc-based PC games, but neither of the faggots have preserved official update patches for PC games from the original sitesDo something, lazy cow.
Don't pretend you care. You'll be dead and nothing will matter. All you want is to play even more free stuff that you don't have a right to.
>>5579809video games are toys for children.
>>5578243The tone of your post suggests you are blaming me, the reader. Why? How is this helpful? What should I be doing to correct this?
>>5579206Well I’m sorry I didn’t live in Japan and purchase some limited edition PCB for the three seconds it was available for preorder and then dumped it for you to play. Is that what you want me to say, okay fine... Sorry.
>>5578243Your post suggests that I should preserve my Xbox 360 instead. Jokes on you, I did.
>>5579815Japs are non confrontational cowards. Go to Cave's office or underpass or wherever they are now, look them in the eyes and in an authoritative tone say "where are the cabinets".
>>5579849Okay! I’m on my way!
>>5578243I don't think anyone really cares about Jap games.
>>5579861That's how we got the Sonic 2 prototype. Some Chinese guy just walked up to one of the devs at a convention, snatched it out of his hand and walked off.
>>5579872SW proto came from New York you dumdum
>>5579889Which they were at.
>>5579889>Naka What? You're kidding! Tell me more. I'd really like to get that back. *laugh* I guess we know what happened to that now... You see, back in mid-1992 we had taken a demonstration cartridge to a toy show in New York. It wound up being stolen, and although we searched and searched all over, it was never found. So that's probably where the data comes from. What's the Hidden Palace in this one like?
>>5579803good point tbqhgoing to be much more difficult the newer the games are and if they were tied to one of the drm-stores.shame.
Wake me up when Vertexer gets dumped
>>5578243Caveshit? Good riddance! As long as Touhou games are preserved all is well.
>>5578243Nobody gives af about incomplete prototypes, sperg
>>5580076 Touhou sucks
>>5579206Arrr me matie, what makes ye think that this here be the domain of the black flag. We be wantin’ To preserve the booty of games that there be out on the high seas.
>>5578243All those games are probably shit.I can't believe people give a shit about some undumped beta of a piece of shit game but don't care about preserving things like god tier amateur porn in high quality. Shit is disappearing fast or only avaliable as reencodes with giant watermarks.
>>5578249Then you had no business posting here.
>>5580336Are you a Nintendo rep?
>>5578249>>5578251>>5578257>>5578320>>5578497>>5579809>>5579867>>5580076>>5580336Kill yourselves, dumb 30yo materialist boomers.
>>5580434Collecting digital data is the opposite of materialism, especially if you use it as a substitute for real human interaction.
>ching chang chong shityeah no
>bunch of shmupsCan't you just play one of the other thousands of identical games in that stagnant genre?
>CaveLiterally nothing of value lost.
>everyone complaining about Cave and shmups>not realizing that there's only 1 (ONE) retro game in that listYeah this shit is barely /vr/.
>>5578243>ITT: rom hoarding zoomer is buttblasted because there's a few megs on his SD card not filled with shitty versions of games he'll never play
>>5580938>rom hoarding zoomerWell it'd be great if kids were smart and downloading complete rom sets but that's probably not the case. More likely to be a rom PRESERVING boomer, who plays and enjoys old video games regularly.
>>5578243Unless you were planning to take all these games to the afterlife with you, get over it
>>5581446>as a wise old zoomer once saidtop kek kid
>>5578243well, that's too badthere are also lots of old H-games for PC or PC-98 that aren't dumpedBut life goes on, somehow.
>>5581423>Well it'd be great if kids were smart and downloading complete rom sets but that's probably not the case.Well, I bought my first flash cart when I was 17, downloaded a complete rom set.So I'm not 100% sure what you're on about.
