Just found this picture with Arino and Toshi from X Japan.
Do you guys think Arino will be doing Virtual Shock for Saturn next?

Less than a month until Arino and Bakarhythm fight it out? I wonder what they'll play.

>>4336326
I would have guessed Goemon 2 for the next game after that, except they already did one of the Goemon 2 games on DVD last year.
>>
I saw them in New York when their did their first world tour they were amazing such a good band. Saw them again while living in Japan in their home prefecture of Chiba nonetheless and was equally as amazing. The game was pretty interesting from a fan perspective, I like how Hide practically kills you if you give him anything but sake before the show.
>>
>>4337725
I also saw them live in 2011 when they came to my country, with Sugizo on guitar.
It was amazing, one of the best concerts I attended.
It was also special because I went with all my friends who were also into X Japan back in the late 90s and early 00s, I remember we mourned hide's death and never ever tought X Japan would come back, much less we'd be able to see them live with Toshi on vocals and all. And while hide can't be replaced, Sugizo is the next best guy for the job.

I've been thinking of going back to play some PS1 games, and quite like the idea of getting a chipped console hooked up to my TV to do this, and have been weighing up whether to go PS1 or PS2 to play the games. I'd prefer the idea of using a PS2 being that I can also play PS2 games if I wanted to in the future.

I remember the PS1 having a coaxial cable connection which I think would work, but I don't think the PS2 did. And as my TV doesn't have component connections, I'd have to get a HDMI converter or something for that to work, and even if that is possible - would it be any good?

So basically what I am asking is, how easy is it to get a PS2 connected to a TV with only HDMI, and will it work well or be trash?

PS2 had an rf switch available. Funny thing is it's also compatible with the PS3 so you can play PS3 in RF on your CRT from 1975.
>>
>>4337070
Big trouble in little MUU

>>4337237
Is the RF switch quality OK for the PS2, or even the PS1?

I can't remember there being a difference in quality but I'm not sure I would
>>
>>4337716
Is that crash bandicoot
>>
>>4337716
RF is the worst video quality for either system. You'd be better off playing PS1 games on a PS3, you'll get native HDMI that way and all versions of the PS3 can play PS1 discs.

Inspired by another thread we had about this subject. I love games that have a grimy or grungy art direction/aesthetic. Some examples include Wolverine Adamantium Rage, Spider-Man Web Of Fire, Chakan, Spawn PS1, Judge Dredd. Anyone else out there into this?

If Deus Ex isn't retro, how do you explain big PS1 games that were released after it like FFIX
8 replies omitted. Click here to view.
>>
>>4338628
This makes the most sense but too bad we'll never get an updated sticky because the mods are lazy fags that enforce unwritten rules without any consistency so we end up with constant threads like this
>>
>>4338639
Must have gotten the numbers mixed up but you're definitely right. Maybe I forgot to combine the XIII numbers because of multiple consoles, I dunno.
>>
>>4338569
FFIX was released on PSX, thats why its considered retro and thats what is on the sticky anyway.

>>4338624
Unreal 1 is an engine not a console.

The cut-off year for consoles is based the release date of the console itself. The cut-off year for PC games is release date of the games, with occasional leniency when it comes to >2001 or thereabouts.

This is justified by pointing to the relative ambiguity of PC "generations". Nothing drastic separates PC games from 1999 and 2000 on the scale of, say, introduction of 3D acceleration. Therefore the rules are intentionally arbitrary and different from consoles.
This understandably creates friction, and maybe a universal cut-off year would be best, but good luck advocating that. Tbh I selfishly want to be able to talk about 2002 games, since I feel it's one of the best PC years.

Go with the Saturn version, even if it doesn't have the 3D rendered backgrounds

As of yesterday I have beaten half-life 1 and soon I will go on to its sequel. So far half-life 1 kinda still holds up as one of the best games of the 90s and beyond. What are your thoughts /vr/? and please ask me anything of what I thought of this master piece.

Yes, I played it at my aunt's house and won it for the first time. Then I didn't want to stop playing and my mom had to hold my head under the tap and pour water over it so I would go home with her.

Also played the hell out of Prince of Persia.
