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 started playing this /vr/, what am I in for?

A mediocre action RPG.

With a couple of buddies?
One awesome evening.
The first RPG I played at the age of 14. I didn't even know games went beyond platforming (in Yuropoor at the time). I can't tell you anything OP, my vision is blinded by nostalgia.
These are both true to various degrees.
Also the sequel has better gameplay, though I prefer the atmosphere of SoM.
An action-RPG with spells being undodgable is bullshit. And the 'skill/item wheel' is always a pain in the ass.

Any suggestions for good games to play with the Dreamcast arcade stick? Besides fighting games, I mean, since I'm full up on those.
You could always use it for shmups too. I know that I'm always better at those at the arcades than at home with a dpad or thumb stick.

I need to figure out how I can map a screen onto that computer monitor without too much distortion. But yeah, the idea's sound.

breaking the path the level designers intended you to take
it means skipping areas of maps that would be impossible to skip if you couldn't jump

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.

I agree.

SNK's Sagat design is my favorite Sagat design.
Sagat was from Thailand?

Damn, I always thought he was a Russian.

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.

The niconico thing is totally worth watching, btw. Arino's reactions to people dying in his(?) Mario Maker levels is priceless. And you can see Miyamoto suck at Mario, kinda embarassing.

Looks like we have another NES Remix on our hands.
Wait, is that about NES Remix 2? Or Mario Maker special?

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?
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.
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.
>It's gained a cult following
I don't think you understand what that means.

University semester is finally over so I can play Paper Mario again. Just got two stars tonight. The invincible Tubba Blubba is an asshole. Eating boos alive is the most violent Mario has ever gotten.

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.
It's a hack, check out rom hacking dot net.
Damn, are you me? Paper Mario actually really helped me get motivated to learn how to read.
I can't wait for its release on the WiiU VC next month
OP here. Just finished Bowser's castle and now I'm about to face the big cheese himself.

Why isn't Street Fighters 2: the World Warrior appreciated by retro gamers?
Not that big a fan of SF in general.

Because later iterations are more fun.
