This board is for the discussion of classic, or "retro" games. Retro gaming means consoles, computer games, arcade games (including pinball) and any other forms of video games on platforms launched in 1999 and earlier. With the release of the 8th generation of consoles, the Sega Dreamcast will now be considered "retro", though the remainder of the sixth generation (Xbox, PS2, GameCube) will not.

Just beat this tonight. The final boss battle with Dr. Wily was a bitch. Overall I really enjoyed it. Why does this game get such a negative response online nowadays?

/vr/, what is your favorite entry into the classic Megaman series? Do you have high hopes for Megaman 11, even without Inafune's involvement? (which at this point may be a good thing)

Also, MM7 Wily Stage 1 best Wily theme ever. Really makes you feel that shits about to get real

I loved MM7

Didn't know people disliked it until this thread
>Aladdin on Genesis has bigger sprites
>Platforming is much harder and the hit boxes are terrible

>Aladdin on SNES has smaller sprites
>Solid platforming and things hit you where it makes sense
>"booo dis game sucks"

But then /vr/ hates Mega Man 7 for its huge sprites, despite good hit boxes

Makes no sense.
Because this game, and 8 are so slooow
Intro stage, then 4 robot masters, then an intermission stage, then 4 more robot masters, then Wily's castle. Unless you want to get some extra items, making backtracking way more important in 7 than 1-6.
>implying aladdin threads aren't just stealth east vs. west shitpost matches
Stagger made robot masters too easy to defeat with their weakness
Otherwise amazing game

/vr/ I need help finding a game I don't remember the name of. It was an educational computer game about dinosaurs from the 90s-early 2000s. I remember it being 3D and the graphics being pretty terrible. I played it as a child in 2004 in kindergarten. I remember it revolving a lot around math. There was a little flying dinosaur that led you around and showed you mini games. I remember one where you there were dino eggs with numbers on them and you had to add them together to win. I've searched the internet for about 4 hours straight so far trying to find this, but I've found nothing. It's not Dinosaur Adventure 3D. Coming here is a last resort, but if anyone can help it'd be greatly appreciated.
Bumping to help you out, bro.

Yeah I did a double take when I saw that. Everyone born in '99 is 18+ now though, crazy as that is to think about.
It freaks me out that I'm 19 already

if I was 19 again I'd have unprotected sex with everyone I could, spend all my money on booze and drugs and die of STDS and consumption before I turned 21.

I think both SC ans SC HD look worse than TibSun.

And while sc is best for multiplayer, isn't it funny how the most popular coop mode in sc2 has features like unit specialization and global powers that were never in sc.

Why does no one ever play deathmatch online?
Mild update: Quaddicted and Quakewiki both work just fine in the same browser but running on Linux instead. Time to get fiddling and updating, fuck my life.
small fanbase?
people just dont like deathmatch?
people have bad internet?
confusing to filter out the shit servers filled with 20 shitty wads you have to wait to download?
people are too lazy?

it's a pity, yeah
It's all coop, survival, and fucking megaman WADs
Yeah people like things you don't, shocking I know.

The 3ds ones are real great but even the first ones on DS are really good and well worth playing if you have the means. I found Strange Journey and SMT IV painfully dull and easy after EO though. So be warned the series does kind or ruin other games.
>. I don't really understand why games with permadeath let you reload your game.

Because players want it. Not everyone likes that feeling of real consequences.
Beyond the Beyond. It's a very early PS1 game where the plot is unimportant and the endless combat grinds you to dust.
A cheap 3DS to play all that and more is a very reasonable decision. If you're poorer than that, a PSTV has access to many decent crawlers. There are quality and challenging RPG for PC as well, some that I especially enjoyed were Last Remnant and Genius of Sappheiros.
>Valkyrie Profile
>more emphasis on gameplay than story
You what? You can't even start controlling a character and playing the game until you've watched about an hour and fifteen minutes of cut scenes and dialogue. That number isn't an exaggeration, I've timed it. Ok, in the middle of that, you can control the character for 20 seconds to walk down the road and get to the next thirty minutes of dialogue, but you get my point.

You got the flu shot earlier didn't you?
Next year don't do that.

Flu shots are a blue pilled medicien designed by (((them))) to weaken the goyim and decrease their lifespans.
What kind of games are you into? That would help us help you.

If you like platformers, Umihara Kawase is pretty fun. Shining Force and Shining Force 2 are pretty nice SRPG/TRPG, might help to pass the time if you're laid up for a while. Some others that are fun in no particular order: Devil Dice on PS1, Kirby's Dream Course, Micro Machines, Link's Awakening, Lion King on genesis, Red Zone (epic game), Sub-Terrania, Worms Armageddon.

That fucking scream of him, fuck I wish I didn't remember.
I like Spyro 1 the most, but like that other anon said, it feels flat now since I already know everything.
I loved the exploration part, looking for the last few diamonds and seeing them glistering in the distance is absolutely wonderful.
Also liked the music in the first game a lot more, it feels kinda magical, Copeland did a fine job.

Would've been more happy with the later games if they added more platforming challenges rather than boring minigames that aren't worth replaying most of the time.
That boxing minigame in Spyro 3 was particularly aggravating, I never quite understood how it worked.

>rushed because of time constraints.
I mean, what other reason could there be? Of course you rush games due to time constraints lol. 2 is probably the least rushed of the trilogy though it still can be felt in Winter Tundra a bit, that world is the shortest by far and it seems weird to have hubs based on the seasons and only have three of them, while the last one is the shortest one. Hm.
Enter the Travesty was both rushed (even moreso) but also by a less competent dev.
They also reused dragon models and characters with the excuse of them being turned into statues again lol
>Also liked the music in the first game a lot more, it feels kinda magical
This, it's much less "samply". And Bentley boxing is retarded indeed.

I'm about halfway through Spyro 3 now.
The new playable characters try to bring some variety but I don't know if it was really necessary.
All I can say for now is that I love this guy.

Why did Nintendo do BA instead of AB?
Because from the perspective of your thumb, A is closer.
Why, for that matter, not 1-2? Or 2-1?
Or basic geometric shapes like Playstation?
Roman numerals and "run" like PCE?

How do birds know which way is South in Winter?
How does salmon know to return to where it was born?
Really makes you think
fun fact: the snes controller works on nes and the buttons map so y becomes b and b becomes a
Because Japanese is written from right to left.

Yeah, tried it that way now. All that did was give green enough time to stack a fuckton of creatures on different heroes so he can fuck up all my towns at different points of the map.

I get the distinct feeling that if you don't pick Pathfinding and Logistics on Kilgore in earlier scenarios you are simply fucked. The map is too fucking big and there's too many nooks and crannies for the cowardly cuckheroes of your enemies to just hide while you have to chase bigger targets, i.e. a Yog with 20 attack and a fuckton of creatures trying to fuck up your castle. This scenario is a bullshit mess that requires you to know a) the design of the map, such as the green portal and underground area b) to move all over the fucking place in few turns with no Dimension Door or possibility of attaining a movement spell c) defeat 3 enemies that always seem to focus on you instead of acting - like the scenario says - like it's a Free for All.

To think that I even got through the last scenarios on Sandro without having to re-scum all the time...

Fuck off, I was here from the very start of /vr/ and it did not "use to be a HotA and succ" general. Back in the old days, no one would actually mention that.
Yeah they did. Deal with it faggot people were arguing about HotA vs WoG for a long ass time.

What is your favourite lesser know adventure game?

We all know that King's Quest V, Full Throttle and Monkey Island 2 are fantastic.

So let's discuss some adventure games that aren't quite as well known.

They probably don't know. Also much of the old guard of furries (from the 80s and 90s)are either broke homeless or dead.

Anyway Chaos is a game nobody seems to remember. Also secrets of the pyramids

I mentioned it here. >>4520391 Love that game.

It's one of those games I can't believe I finished on my own as a kid when nowadays if I get stuck in a game for 5mins I pull out a walk through :(

So much damn fun with the rolling ball control!
