Hey /vr/, last month I was feeling nostalgic for my first console so I bought a Master System off eBay. I have bought the several games I owned as a kid and now I'm wondering...

What games does /vr/ recommend for the master system? I'll try anything if you think it's good.

I second this. Probably the best platforming game on SMS. I have beat it many times and it doesn't get boring.
Lion King is good, enjoyed more than the genesis version
Golden Axe for the Mastersystem was an impressively fun port, even if you only got one character, all the gameplay was there, for a solo player game.

If you have Sonic, find the hidden life on every level ...theres always at least one!

Seconding the Wonderboy 3 recommend. That game was heads above the rest, and the name is misleading, wonderboy one was NOTHING AT ALL like 3. (Action game vs rpg)

Populous on MS was pretty cool
Golden Axe Warrior. Ignore the Nintendrones who dismiss it entirely because it's not Zelda.

It obviously takes a lot of inspiration from Zelda, but it's a great game in its own right.
No. In fact a lot of MS games have been hacked to use the genesis pause button so load those on your everdrive and never get up to change your wep in wonderboy 3 again.

Does vintage midi hardware supports black midi?
Somebody tried playing "Necrofantasia- All Hell Freezes Over" on a SC-88pro, the synth got all hung up and froze.

What I want to see is a black midi played on those old-style player pianos with those piano rolls.
I know. I went to music school, I literally sequence MIDI every day and have been doing so for over a decade. I'm extremely familiar with MIDI, I'm just calling that guy out for being a retard. These threads are always a shit show because no one fucking understands what MIDI is.
Yeah, that's why you say "CD audio made with high quality MIDIs" when saying "MIDIs" in the plural form refer to MIDI files, which isn't made of sound data, and then claim there's no "high-quality MIDI files"? Sound isn't the only thing that can be of high-quality, the way a tune in a MIDI file has been sequenced can be of high-quality. Bet you think there are no high-quality printers or monitors either?
High-quality posts only, please.

Is there any way at all to identify a N64 game that has no label, without a console of course.

Ive found one lady seelling games, its at a flea market but theres no way to plug a console and test the games, many of them have no labels last week i got Starfox 64 and Kirby 64 for cheap, labels are destroyed but luckily i could make out the face of the robot on Starfox, and a pink and yellow spot on the side of Kirby 64.

On Snes you can identify the games by the catalogue number printed on the actual EEPROM, but N64 i dont know if this is possible.

>>4344461 (OP)

You need to see the board

Open it.

The CIC NUS- number on the lockout chip can give a guess which game it is, though the same versions were used in multile games. There is also the NUS number on the board which again was used sometimes by multiple carts, but the combination of both numbers can at least let you hazard a good guess which game it is, especially which ones it CANNOT be.
You can look up the numbers online.
Actually, i just niticed that the catalogue number printed on the bottom of the label, is the same as the one printed on the flashrom chip, now IF ONLY i could find a list of the catalogue numbers i couod just print it and open the carts... lady told me i could open them.
HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA nevermind, just found a list with the catalogue numbers.


wish me luck guys, there were like a dozen labeless carts.
keep us updated

Was this ever mentioned in the game itself? If it was I genuinely missed it.

Look, Rhys has a fetish for 80s anime girls with glowing hair. Don't judge him.

This thread reminded me that I have a pdf of the unofficial artbook one of the artists for the game did years ago. I zipped and uploaded it up for anons.


And a translation to go along with it:

No, hence why I said you need to find the 'official' alternative media sources(>>4344794 might have posted one such source, for example) or fill in the gaps with your own headcanon. This isn't such a jump in logic though, considering the possible proximity in age between the two characters, as well as the fact that they ARE heirs to neighboring kingdoms...

Dungeons in Zelda are pretty boring imo. I like that game because of the not-so-many side-quests, that give the serie an atmosphere.
that water temple enema musta been REAL painful for people to still be butthurt about it. goodness gracious. never got enema'd m'self, but damn kinda wish i did.
>the one experience with that game i'll never have. lucky plebs.
MGS1, 3, PW, R & 5 didn't have a lot of cutscenes

2 & 4 were the ones that were full on movies
Not even hipsters either. My normie friends praise BOTW as the goat though I'm positive it's only because it's a Zelda game
I genuinely have never liked Ocarina of Time, nor did I like Link to the Past. Had them both growing up. People have different preferences and likes, you god damn autist.

>Battle Garegga
Yeah I mean Dimahoo and Batrider make so much more sense
I really liked the first game more too, even though it's objectively worse. it's unbalanced, tedious and cryptic to the point of requiring a walkthrough thru like half of it, but the relatively open world, all the secrets and the wonderful art style and music just makes it so much more memorable than earthbound imho.

Why is this game so much less fun than previous entries in the series? The levels are fucking boring.
I find it hard to believe that people actually like it more than Sonic 1 & 2.

Just because you're a filthy casual who can't enjoy these games on a Dreamcast, doesn't mean it isn't good.
There is only one block that you push on a button in the entire game. You drama queens over exaggerate pushing blocks in Sonic the Hedgehog that it is hard to take any of your criticisms seriously.

Sonic the Hedgehog had great locations, a real sense of speed as a reward due to lack of a spindash and you'd have to use the level to build up speed once again when you lost it. It is also a perfect length for anyone to beat. You don't need an intaminte knowledge of the levels to finish it in an hour or less. Unlike something like S3&K which is a fairly long game and doesn't lend itself for a quick play through.
If it got a competent camera and controls that weren't overly sensitive and if everything was more like the Sonic levels then it would be better.
>There is only one block that you push on a button in the entire game.
There are several instances of block pushing. To press a button, to ride across lava, the floating cork platforms in labyrinth zone that raise with water levels...

I never said anything about buttons.
>S3&K which is a fairly long game and doesn't lend itself for a quick play through.
S3K also has a save system though, which completely undoes any complaints about length. Sonic 2 is a bit of a pain to do in one sitting, because you can't power off the system. But Sonic 3K is a perfect game to return to.

Snow Bros is my second favorite in the genre. But nothing beats Bubble Bobble in terms of sheer variety though. A billion powerups, +100 (+200) stages and that satisfying risk-reward system of trying to cluster up as many enemies together at once before popping them.
If you can play as a pig and can throw weapons at people and wolves so you can collect food then it's gotta be a good game.

When I was 11 me and the kid next door skived off school to get to the final level on the Master System. Such a well rounded arcade style game, amazing multiplayer.

If /vr/ has never played it, highly recommended.

Jr looks good, but I prefer the regular US SNES and SFC.
The original one looks better because it reminds me of a corvette. The SNES Jr does look better than the U.S. SNES though. Hell I own an American SNES Jr.
I don't even like nintendo, but the original super famicom is one of the best looking pieces of hardware I've ever seen.

Give me your best (or worst). This isn't limited to just SNK, as other companies like Capcom & NAMCO like to be cheap with their end-game bosses

I like to use red venom against his first form, you can do a lot of damage with his multi hit attacks BUT red venom is easy to kill, so you gotta be careful. teaming RV with Ryu, Megaman, shadow lady or maybe war machine should help you knock out onslaught quick. Also make sure to use iceman, michelle heart, or maybe Shadow Charlie as helpers to get more damage in.
Pretty sure WW AI is easier than Turbo.
Orochi is fun, he dodges all over the place and characters with triangle jump can jump over his fullscreen sdm, which is a useless and dangerous trick but very fun to do.
Orochi's fun beat compared to other SNK bosses, he's piss easy.

I have played from 1 to 7, but only recently gave 3 a chance. It seems to be the forgotten entry, probably because for being an old game with only one remake. Remakes for 1 and 2 did a good job keeping the good old touch while making the games playable. The DS remake on the other hand changes a lot of things.

I wanted to see was iii and these are my conclusions:

- Is the closest one in spirit to one: great world full of adventures, little story in the way, and lots of adventures with the advantage of job change system.
- Not as grindy as i was expecting. In fact, dungeons are usually small and encounter rate in the overwall is reduced.
- The world in itself is a rarity and fun to explore. I can't think of a world that allows you that much grade of freedom (maybe 2). The world also features the most charismatic places i have seen in FF.
- I actually prefer the way spells are handled in contrast to the mana pool way. For every spell level you have a number of uses, independently on what spell do you use.
- A lot of hidden chests in every place, the game rewards you if you take the time to examine walls.

A shame the game doesn't receive as much attention as it should, and people who rate the game low while rating 1 high probably have not played the game. What do you think about FF III?
Also, favourite party? I'm right now using a warrior, monk, and white/black wizard.

No. The game as released is ultimately the product that matters. It is the one that influenced later games, the one that left it's mark on the world. It's better that you appriciate a game flaws and all than play some revisionist's idea of how the game should have been.
I still can't believe the managed to put all that in a NES game
Hope you bring a dark sword with you.
Seems it adds the ability to buy items in bulk and the ability to dash on the overworld, as well as doubling boss HP because muh remakes did that. The rest is just fixing shit that was intended to be in the game but was broken for whatever reason.

Does anybody plan on buying this? From what I've read & heard, the problems had been fixed. I plan on buying one, simply because I might be able to mod it & it will look great sitting next to my Sega Genesis model 1 console. Although I'll cover the AtGames logo with black paint.
