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.

I believe that Sagat's design is inspired by the character Tong Po from Kickboxer. A tall bald East Asian man and martial artist. There are men who look like that.

Later designs made him much more bulky, and more European looking.

I like the SFII models the most out of the series since they are all much more plausibly built with not that much exaggeration. Later designs draw more from bodybuilders and they are too bulky.

There's a bit of a loss of nuance in the translation. A more accurate translation of teh original Japanese would be. "You can go back home. You have a family too, don't you?" "Too", as in "like me". It's his guilt of deserting his family to enter the tournament showing through.

>>
>>2366552

Mario Maker special. I referred to it as "another NES Remix" because that was the other case where an episode happens and the team decides "we have to sub this quick".

Which I'm fine with. From what I've heard, the special is rad, so getting it subbed faster is cool.

Do you think there is a certain appeal in collecting disc-based games in slim CD cases?
>>
nope.

Yes, I know some people that do this, such as myself. It's gained a cult following over the past years, and plus it's cheaper since you're only buying the disc, not the manual.
>>
>>2366558
No, because all CD games use standard jewel case tray cards which won't fit in slim cases. Why would you do this? Unless you have a bunch of burnt games, in which case who cares.

The plot of Paper Mario really cozy.

It feels like all the other Mario RPGs are trying to be darker or add meta-humor in, often with new villains and settings and such. And some of them are done really well. But the first Paper Mario feels like the most genuine telling of the traditional "Bowser Kidnaps Peach" story, with extra elements and characters building onto that rather than twisting the story or joking about it.

The Paper Mario sequels, especially, feel like they're more self-aware; but playing the first one is like reading an old storybook. Every bit of the aesthetics and gameplay feels innocent and honest. It knows it doesn't have to play with the audience's expectations too much, and knows that it can stand on its own. And it's probably the best at representing Mario and Peach's relationship, IMO.

It's really cozy.
