>Went through 3 pins in about a year

It just became to much of a hassle for me trying to fix them up though. That, all the organizing that went into swapping and selling them, buying parts, and college + work started picking up. So I ended up just selling them all and picking up a 82' Chexx for my dad and I.

It was damn good. Pokemon pinball on gbc was fun too if you liked this one.

To me at first Kirby pinball seemed really simple and like there wasn't much variety, but the more you played it, the better it got. It ended up being one of my favorites for the system.
It's not "vidya" but it is retro gaming.
I bet a bunch of people on this thread would be interested to hear that there was a Street Fighter II pinball machine with a Car Crunch lower playfield. Here's what it looks like.

I just got a sega genesis to get for my mom and dad and little brother for Christmas. I know a bit about the system and am going to get them Aladdin (they had it when it came out), all the Sonic games, and MK2.

I know my folks will like it for the nostalgia factor, but for my little bro I want to introduce him to some older games (he's 14). Any suggestions. I'm thinking MK2 since we both like that but beyond that I'm unsure. Also, general genesis thread I guess.

OP here. So far, thinking of Sonic 1,2,3&K, MK2, Aladdin, F117 Night Storm (Dad used to own it and cheap), and Gauntlet IV. One more cheap multiplayer game would really round it out tho. Thanks for the help so far anons
you need a beat em up / belt scroller. Streets of Rage should do the trick. Plus its pretty cheap.
That would round things out nicely. My little brother is into superheroes and I see a lot of Spider-Man games on the console. Any strong opinion on any of those? Maximum carnage looks like a good beat em up. Can't seem to find decent comparative reviews
Max Carnage is pretty good the other spiderman games are kinda forgettable. Most people who had a genesis played X-Men but its pretty mediocre. X-Men 2 is a better game and its co-op 2 player. Captain America and the Avengers has really good music like streets of rage.
avengers is also 2 player btw

i seriously don't understand your post. is collecting bad? or a joke to you? im not even sure. its a fucking hobby dude.
Those fucking guys believe that the humidity will ruin Cds over a period of time, Cd decay they call it. I live in Arizona so I don't think its even possible, hell even when I lived in Chicago, the only Cds that ever decayed on me were the music cds I burned that I stored in my car door storage that got water in them when it rained. Those decayed. Basically, keep your shit dry and you won't have a problem.

I'm jealous of Lunar and Skies of Arcadia, but I got some of those and a bunch more about a month back.
Forgot to mention I got Sonic Adventure, long-box Resident Evil 1, and a Dreamcast with it.

I had never played Art of Fighting 2 and what a pleasant surprise, it is pretty damn good. Sure it's full of AoF idiosyncrasies (control scheme, spirit gauge, some strange hit/hurtboxes,...), but it looks great for its age and it's way more fun to play than the original.

There's two problems with it though. First, half of the cast is shit. The only new character the designers cared about is obviously Yuri, she's got a lot of fun animations.
Second problem and a huge one, it is horrendously difficult. The only way to beat the ai is to abuse cheap shit like leg sweeps and throws, and finding patterns to trap it. Geese is the kicker, he is broken as hell.
I wonder how fun it is on versus. I have never seen someone play AoF competitively (it's probably a taunt/charge spam at high level).
Whats wrong with the control scheme?

Oh my.
Why isn't Epic updating this game with an update to fix some stuff like SS2? Last I heard they upgraded the master servers.
So who wants to get #rekt on period Athlon XP hardware at a retro LAN in Florida I am hosting after Christmas? Once I get the server up I'll post IP here but we're going to do some vanilla maps and some other ones too including Deemerdoom for max lulz

Why aren't you using the latest RetroArch, /vr/?

On MAME you can overclock by enabling cheats on mame.cfg and then going into slider controls with the in-game tab menu
Why aren't you an adult with disposable income, OP? Also, retoarch sucks hairy balls.
This, but not weak baiting, Retroarch does suck.
What's the point of even using Retroarch, except the fancy screen filters? It's much easier to just download a separate emulator and set everything up as you like.
Retroarch is clunky, unreliable and pointless.
Because I moved to BizHawk and never looked back.

Real talk, I've loved BT for ages but I've never really appreciated the gameplay in 1. It feels way too slow paced to walk around, even with Talon Trot. It's simple in the number of things to find and not over complicated, but say I fall down a tree, it'll take me forever to get back up there! Mario I could zeep-bop-badoo-bop bing bong jump. Anywhere I wanted to be I can be there in a matter of minutes, as long as I knew it was there. Tooie fixed that because more of its levels scaled vertically, and I could just jump downhill wherever the point I wanted to get back to. It felt like I was still being punished, but recovering wasn't as bad.
Granted, Tooie had a deal of backtracking that was somewhat minimized by the crossing levels, you have to backtrack at least once in Kazooie but no more.

this. I still like them both a lot, but they should've stayed more focused. I actually really like the moveset from BK, but none of the platforming challenges really required you to be very good at maneuvering. I was disappointed when they just added a bunch of useless gimmicky moves in Tooie, I would've rather seen Tooie limit itself to the old moves and just have more difficult platforming, kinda like the jap smb2.
I loved Tooie but HAG-1 was a nightmare

Thats neat. Usually to move around big levels I just take fall damage anyhow since it amuses me.
Notice How Rare platformers focus more on the horizontal movement, and jumping or climbing kills horizontal movement, making Mario-esque climbing impossible. I always preferred Mario 64 because of this, getting around in Rare games felt so \tedious.

are there any good mods for this game? i've finished it like 8 times and i want to try something new
Unfortunately there won't be any. The source code was lost a long time ago so this is hard to make any change in the game. Still we have a map editor, but fans only created a multiplayer maps...

I really need to replay this game. I lost my progress when my laptop hard drive corrupted many years ago.

honestly the writing in the game is so good, wo would have to post everything. I love the talk of the ilwrath too. And the sales star guy... and the rat/dog suicide race creature... and the other creatures that try to kill you and sometimes not. And the translation problems with the Orz that wanna bang you hard or something...
Orz are actually maybe the scariest race in the game.

Its my first time truly getting into an Ultima game. I played a bit of some of the earlier series and a lot of Underworld a long time ago, but I've been craving an RPG and I've heard VII is one of the best.

The problem I'm having is navigating the world. The map that came with the GoG version has all the places labeled in runes, and if I try and find a map online with the towns labeled, what I get is a bunch of maps with everything possible spoiled on the space provided. I don't want to know where in the forests I'm going to be jumped, I just want to be able to tell where I'm going. I'm used to grid mapping with games like M&M3, so this is different for me by quite a bit. Does anyone have a link to a map that isn't spoiler-ridden, or any tips for in game navigation?

Definitely worth it.

One of my favourite things about Diddy Kong Racing was the exploration, like finding hidden keys without the pressure of being against a time limit. At times it felt like Mario 64 on wheels.

I've never seen this done since and I want it to make a come back. Diddy Kong Racing 2 when?

Of the big three kart racers of the day, MK64, DKR, and later CTR I'd say MK64 is easily the worst and far worse than it's predecessor. Now if we're comparing Super Mario Kart to those other two games it's pretty close.
MK64 worse than SMK?
there wasnt much collecting in dancedancerevolution

SM64 was the only one with solid FPS

its only problem was that some of the tracks were really bland

there was a code that allowed you to respawn in place
