Board: /vr/

"/vr/ - Retro Games" is 4chan's imageboard for discussing retro console video games and classic arcade games.

↑↑↓↓←→←→ BA START
triforce
This board is for the discussion of classic, or "retro" games, including consoles, computer games, arcade games (including pinball) and any other forms of video games. Retro gaming means platforms launched in 2001 and earlier, and official game titles for those platforms released no later than December 2007 (homebrew console games made after this date will be permitted). The Microsoft Xbox, Nintendo GameCube, Nintendo Game Boy Advance, and Sony PlayStation 2 will now be considered "retro".

Hacked my Wii to play Gamecube games, what should I check out? Already played the Metroid Prime, Pikmin, and Zelda games, Eternal Darkness, Killer7, REmake, Viewtiful Joe, Smash Bros., Prince of Persia.

How are the Pokemon games? How are Megaman Network and Commmand Mission? How is the Metal Gear Solid remake (already played the original)? How about lesser known games like Bomberman Generation and Jetters?

Mario 64
>Ah yes, all my beloved assets from past Mario titles...
Ignoring maybe the first few worlds, this game looks like a tech demo of a bunch of mishmash textures and pieces. The ending result barely feels like a Mario game in VISUALS alone. The gameplay I will not argue feels just how a 3d Mario game should. I guess you could argue that these paintings are not really in the Mario Universe so they can be as abstract and weird as possible, imo that is just lazy.

Okay, no BS, just hard facts. How powerful was the Dreamcast in reality compared to the PS2/GCN/Xbox? Assuming it hadn't been abandoned by Sega and stuck around for the duration of the generation, could it have held it's own through 2006 or so or would it have been way outclassed? Would it have been able to handle the late era multiplats?

Why is this place so fucking empty and lonely? Couldn't they at least make each Toad look different? Why not add various NPCs with unique dialogue? For example you rescue Luigi or say, Daisy in a stage and then they appear in the hub world. Compare this shit to Delfino Plaza. Sunshine's gameplay may be lacking but it will forever be better than SM64 in terms of atmosphere and immersion

It's weird how Sonic Heroes had the best art direction for a 3D Sonic game, while simultaneously being the worst one in terms of gameplay. (Without taking the later boost games into account, of course.)
Such a waste. I wish the Adventure games had stages this aesthetically pleasing.

I think ditching the shitty team-mechanic would've made this game more memorable alone. Power characters are not fun, since it basically boils down to "spam B to win" and flight characters are just so sluggish and just generally a pain to play as.

Hello, it is me, Akitoshi Kawazu: director of such classic games as Final Fantasy 2 and Final Fantasy Legends 1 and 2.

Does it have any interesting games other than Donkey Kong 94 and Mole Mania?
Borders get in the way when playing the game. After I beat the game, I just look online for them.
Soundtrack from SNES, Mega Drive (Genesis) versions doesn't really matter. I would just play those versions.
Game specific palettes look like they tried to make something and gave up along the way. As for the regular palette, I used to like it in the past, but after Game Boy shaders became a thing, it looks worse in every way possible.

This fucking game is so creepy it freaks me out as an adult, if I had it back when I was a kid I'd probably wet my bed and tell my mommy I'm scared. Pulsating, rumbling bass noises, saw-like buzzing sound effects, Chakan's wild howling and roaring, extreme difficulty, occult themes, feeling of despair and demonic possession, and that hidden ending that makes you realize that Chakan is forever doomed in eternal hell... well spank my ass and call me charlie but I'm sure that this game is literally CURSED.

Modern Controller Shoulder Buttons
xbox-series-x-controller-triggers.large
In modern controllers natural resting position of index finger is on top of triggers.
So for retro consoles without triggers it makes more sense to map shoulder buttons to triggers.
For PS1/PS2/Ps3 most of the time it makes more sense to swap L1,R1 with L2,R2 given triggers are the main buttons right now unlike in the past. Button prompts do get confusing.
Also there is no travel distance with triggers as our fingers act instantaneous and given you are mapping a digital button to an analog button it would get activated as soon as you press.
There's a reason Nintendo is using triggers even digital buttons. Its comfy.

Do you prefer shoulder buttons or triggers for shoulder buttons?

Why is the PC retro gaming scene so dead /vr/?

Console games are discussed to death and everyone knows the classics, emulators are ported to every device that can run them and their preservation is top as well.

PC games? Hundreds of titles that no one ever talks about, people only know about uhh doom quake and 2 other games thats it, at least for the pre 2k era.
Preservation? Some games are extremely hard to find and even harder to get them to run.
I hate it.

2) As an "experimental" kind of console It was ridden with bottlenecks and ultimately underpowered for general gaming tasks which at the time didn't really need this new tech for the most part.

Why were most of the 8-bit palettes in classic shooters devoid of any cyan? Was it an attempt to differentiate themselves from Wolfenstein 3D which had the weird idiosyncrasy of making all metal cyan?

big guns
>Big Guns, by Neversoft
>Breakneck speed mecha combat with big guns and jumping roll dodges with robots that can fly, transform and become bigger the more weapons they equip
>Basically a 3D Probotector, already looks great even in very early stages
>Retarded sony execs told them to throw all that away and change the entire aesthetic to a generic "cat woman" with a gun (not even a hot catgirl, just a regular woman who transforms into a dumbass cat), thus ruining the entire concept of the game
>Ultimately cancelled because Neversoft had layoffs in 1997
>5th gen will forever be starved of good mecha games

Is Ninja Gaiden NES as difficult as people make it out to be? I remember kids saying it was the hardest game to beat. It's been on my "bucket list" of games to beat as an adult. I've beat Mega Man, Castlevania, and Dracula's Curse. I thought this was the only place I would get a real answer from somebody that's either tried to beat or tried to beat the game.

Popolocrois I&II – Developer Interviews
popolo04
>As for the game's concept, there was a feeling that, with the incredibly talented animators we had on-hand, it would be a crime not to use them for animation. That was one of our big design premises. Apart from that, we wanted to create something that would make full use of today's new hardware. It was kind of like we were aiming for that same "wow!" feeling of progress that players got when they saw Dragon Quest II for the first time. With the hardware back then, developers had no choice but to abridge and omit things, but even today that continues to be the case with a lot of things.

The more beta footage that's unearthed, the more it seems like the version of Ocarina of Time we got was a severely cut down shadow of what could have been. Miyamoto admitted the N64 hardware was such a train wreck Nintendo themselves couldn't even take full advantage of it and I believe him.

I stole this pic from some blogpost
I'm starting to wonder if the reason that WS games aren't translated is because they're fucking boring. Granted I'm still just a beginner at moonrunes, but so far I'm playing through games that look good/cool, and while the visuals are nice, the gameplay is often boring as shit. Not to mention, the capcom platformers (megaman, makaimura) feel sloppy, like they were made by some B team, though the shitty d-pad doesn't do them any favors.

These are the games I've liked or thought were interesting:
>Judgment Silversword (better to just get the PC port though)
>Dicing Knight (very fun)
>SaGa remake (good way to experience it)
>RomaSaGa 1 port (not the best of the series but nothing wrong with the port that I could tell)
>WildCard (weird but interesting)
>GunPey (fun even if d-pad sucks)
>OnePiece Swan Colosseum (not bad though you might as well play the Jump Stars games on DS)

And the other ones:
>Tetris (not worth what people want to sell it for)
>Hataraku Chocobo (maybe I'm missing something but it just feels like MULE for kids with no friends)
>Turntablist (can't do anything right, does this just require perfect accuracy or what?)
>Blue Wing Blitz (I'm starting to think a JP site I saw years ago describing it as kusoge weren't far off from the truth)
>Chocobo Mystery Dungeon (not bad but not sure why you'd play it vs the PS version)
>Gundam Side Story (like some mix of a crappy CYOA and a crappy shooting game)

Also the games I feel like I'm not ready for yet due to language reqs:
>Terrors
>Uzumaki
>Ring Infinity

Are there some good games that I'm missing? As I said above, I'm suspecting this system has a lot of allure but that a number of its games aren't actually that good.

Persona 3 controversial ending
persona_3
I remember people on gamefaqs complaining about the ending of this game, but completely ignoring that the main theme of the game is death.

Personally I liked the ending. It made sense if you think about it from all the hints that the game was preparing for something like this and it fits to the entire theme of rejecting apathy and living your life to the fullest. This game is a masterpiece, and it's a darn shame Atlas never made another masterpiece like this in the persona series.

Do you think the game's ending fits the entire game?

Thinking of diving in and finally beating this game after so many stalled attempts. What do I need to know before going in? Should I level up on stat and focus on it more than the others (attack, magic, life)? Should I avoid picking up extra lives until the end of the game? Where are the best areas to level grind outside of temples? I really want to give it my best shot this time and not stall again at the gauntlet that is Death Mountain.
