The win98 thread inspired me. This game deserves its own thread. Awesome back in the day.

I don't remember any music. I can hear the sound effects in my head now though.

The other game on my pc was an Indiana Jones one, can't remember what it's called.
It had good music, check the youtube videos.
What kind of engine this game used? It would be great to see its real possibilities.
I have negative memories of this mainly because we were poor at the time + I wasn't allowed to play violent games anyway so this is the shit I had to play while my friends at school talked about the secret nazi level in Doom. I did have Descent at least.

I want to start playing famicom and super famicom games, and the original plan was to stick to platformers that I didn't need to know Japanese to play.
However, I've become interested in playing some games like goemon or clock tower. Would it be feasible to try to translate line by line? Would it be too painstaking for a puzzle game like clock tower?

What if I was emulating on my phone?
There is the auto flashcard import feature (vocab mining) on anki and this list
Ah I was gonna say you can use Renzo if you have an iPhone but maybe they have one for that. It also has a topic oriented vocabulary list and it’s much cheaper and convenient than getting the book. I use it for pretty much everything, even when I am doing translation work. You’re right though there is a plethora of information that you can use even at a low level. When I first got to Japan even as a beginner I was able to buy a bunch of Shonen manga and understand most of it, and it also helped with my reading because all the kanji that was used had furigana so I could input it into my electric dictionary, because I only had a galakei when I first got there. What are you going there for, btw?
No it’s sepcifically designed for a test but I’m sure you can find something online for that. Lemme look around and see if I can find something.
Actually they do have it for Android so you should get it, it’s a pretty good app. I’ve been using it for 3 years without a problem except for when they update and changed how you search by radical. It was free when I got it but it might be a few dollars now. Check it out and let me know if it suits your needs

Is there any retro games you still play multiplayer on?

I've jumped on Quake 3 a few times, but it's pretty dead. CS 1.6 is still going strong, though.
What's your favorite multiplayer game?

A lot of old online Linux games still have very tiny communities. Only problem is that the people still playing have spent the last 15 years gitting gud, putting them at a godly level of skill.
If you aren't new to the games it generally only takes a few hours to get back into the groove of speedy arena shooters. Worth sticking around and playing with those 15-year players, especially since they're generally really nice people and just want to keep people around.
Might be a good time to try it, someone made a steam group and it's pretty active right now.

Any anons here started with games on floppy disks? Share your best memory.

Personally, I was born in 94, but my first own computer was with Window 98 and a floppy drive (PC was not a cheap at the time in my country, and I was lucky that my cousin gave me the thing, alongside all of his games.) I played the shit out of Doom and what-was-it-called golf game. I got so used to that the first time I saw a PS2 (there used to be arcades near where I lived, but instead of arcade machines, they had PS2) and the CD player, I was in shock.

Oh yeah. I remember getting Wing Commander 2 for my 286, just because the box art was so cool. I kept the game to this day even though I have no way to read 5.25" floppies.

I don't know what would be the best memory. I guess it was the fact that no instructor could be the collective abilities of the students with the school computer networks as they couldn't find where practically all games that existed were stored/moved throughout the network. It was the wild west to copy and share games from schools to bring home to play with the floppies you got. Found so many great DOS games and played almost all of them from full retail releases, full registered releases, adult games, tech demos, demoscene, etc.

If I get the time and money, I am considering upgrades to my 486DX. However, I am also saving up to get the remaining parts for a kickass J-Win98SE machine. One thing one anon here recommended that I get a floppy emulator, which is high on my priority list, but then I cannot afford a USB stick for it either at this time.
I detest 3.5'' floppies. The reason being that they're far more prone to failure then other mediums. I used them regularly up to my late teens, and recently I made archive backups of about 300+ floppies I had laying around, about 50% of them had at least one track with bad data. On the flip side I've got 5 1/4'' that are still alive and kicking even though they're older.
That said, I guess I still to this day enjoy holing one and sliding back the cover, it was my fidgit cube for the time.
I enjoyed the "disposable" nature of floppies in their later years. It made passing files around large groups of people easy.
I had a few games on floppies, can't exactly remember which though. My fondest memory of 3.5's was probably using them to spread porn and the anarchist cookbook through school. I wasn't the best child.

Just finished replaying little big adventure.. again. And thought I'd ask here, before replaying lba2 again, what other games are similar to this?

Before the Souls series got megapopular and made difficult ARPGs more widely accepted, US reviewers tended to give unfair treatment to games that they would have paid more attention to after “git gud” became a thing.

Post games like this. I’ll start.

Well to be fair, games like these were judged fairly back then. Now there's the "lol, so hard" fad. So games that would only have appealed to a niche audience now get meme'd to death.
Those games were ass
>no music
>vague non-story that feels like an amateur tried to copy TS Eliots' The Waste Land
>combat isnt difficult its just tedious involving a lot of kiting on damage sponges
>trial and error gameplay where you wont know whether or not youre strong enough for an area unless you let an enemy hit you, otherwise youll be kiting dumb damage sponges for a solid 5-10 minutes
>shitty control setup that cant be changed to make the game more difficult than it needs to be
>no music
Is this bait?
>vague non-story
Yes, it's bait.
>kiting on damage sponges

>shitty control setup that cant be changed
Did you even look at the options menu?

Anon, you can gauge shitposts by how much of their "point" is greentext. Reread the post, but only the black text, and it's a better picture of how much the guy has to say.

The entire Kings Field series.

While there is valid criticism there most reviewers absolutely hated those games without even looking further than the control scheme.

Is this game worth checking out now even for solo play? I don't think I ever beat the sewers.

Ultima goes P2W once you hit Episode 2 Ultimate because they jacked up Ultimate enemy stats to the point where you need to have weapons from donations to survive.

Ephinea still has the original balance and no need to pay for anything, so you'll be fine.

And for anyone that wants to start out, Ephinea is starting an event where you'll get 50% more XP starting Friday and ending next Friday, so it's a good time to hop in and level up.
Ultima is good if you like the balance of the game being shattered, being able to cheat your way to victory by paying the server admin and speak BR huehuehue. Ephinea is just good.
Got it. I'll see about starting sooner rather than later then.
Just one more question; I remember holiday events occurring during normal play, where they gave season items, does that happen with ephinea as well?

And I'm fine with doing a /vr/ run, I'll probably play a force if I can remember everything I used to do.

Yeah. Ephinea's Easter event is starting soon in fact. It's got the original event from Sega with the Egg Rappies in Episode 2 and a new fan-made event that usually involves a custom quest or two.
Ephinea just started their Easter Egg event.


Basically, all enemies drop easter eggs you can turn in for goodies like nice quality weapons or gimmick weapons. You can also gamble them to get really kickass stuff or to get the basics as well.

Do you people even know this game? have you played it?.

I know is not really a "retro game", i am 30 and i was already around 14 when i played it, but is now of the most important games for me.

What i am trying to say is, anyone else thinks this game is one of the best games EVER?? why is people never talking about this game anywhere??, why you people think this game has been forgotten.

This isn’t the FPS thread. You should go back.
I bought this due to some hype back when it came out, and I fell in love with the character and the atmosphere, but I never actually got that far with it. I feel bad, but I’ve also never been that good at adventure games. Maybe I’ll try to get the GOG version running in Wine or VirtualBox.
nah dont fell bad... is not a perfect game in any mean possible, but it is good enogh and for example i consider it better than most of the games that today sell millions... just if it gets the opportunity of getting itself known by new gamers... that's all i dream, for it to be a little bit more recognized... or respect.
I played it, never finished it...I'm not a big fan of point and click games, at least not enough to finish them...all the stupid puzzles and dumb shit weigh on me and I just can't be bothered after awhile.
>What i am trying to say is, anyone else thinks this game is one of the best games EVER??
Because atmosphere, and because fucking flaming hot latinos-derg-husbendo.

love the 3rd part!

have both parts for Neo Geo and also the soundtracks for all 3 games.

and this lol
I love puzzle games and this one is the best I've ever played. Fun, Frantic, charming characters, easy to get into but tough to master, great music...I just wish more people knew about this great series
I bought an Arcade stick for Saturn to play 3.
The controller was too slow pressing left and right on the D pad, plus pressing buttons is easier since I would have to play with my pointer and middle finger on the buttons to be fast enough.
How do I get good at Magical Drop 2? I suck

Back then, arcade machines were everywhere. I remember so many places that had them. One can opt to take their lunch at Burger King, and they'd have a NBA JAM machine. The 7-Elevens would have the arcade TMNT games. Ames stores will have a corner devoted to arcade machines for the kids like Karnov, Bad Dudes, Roadblasters, The Ninjawarriors. Chinese restaurants will have tables that had Mr.Do, Ring King, Super Mario Bros., Dragon Spirit, Karate Champ, etc. built in. Bus stations would have Yie-Ar Kung Fu, Double Dragon, Paperboy, etc. Woolworth's had Donkey Kong, Mario Bros. A donut shoppe would have a pinball machine and Galaga. A bakery set aside its basement for kids to get their WWF Superstars, Time Soldiers, Double Dragon 2, Golden Axe, and Gauntlet on. A VHS video rental store had Samurai Shodown, NBA Jam, some bootleg chipped SF2CE. Movie theaters would have the bass turned up for Final Fight, U.N Squadron, Super High Impact Football, their own MVS machine, etc. I remember a schoolmate had a family store for novelty items that had Renegade, Samurai Shodown 2, some boxing game, etc. Pizza Hut even had sit-down MVS machines. Cafes, bowling alleys, etc. All in addition to dedicated arcades. The school arcade was a great place for the students enjoying the Marvel Vs. games and lightgun games.

What is the best way of storing loose Game Boy cartridges? I've been keeping mine in Ziploc bags but I realize that's not the best method, especially if I want to actually organize them in a clean fashion.

Any of you guys thinking of selling gear? I have an old collection of N64 games and I feel that console aged pretty badly. Not imagining I will miss it, except maybe Mario 64 at times.

Anything you've regretted selling?
11 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
I lost my childhood genesis collection at some point after getting an n64, memory is foggy. Gave away my n64 collection to my little brother when i was like 14, and have no idea what became of it. I still have my gamecube and wii, but I sold a lot of great gc games about 10 years ago when i was in a tough spot, i regret all of these decisions. The wii turned into a emulation powerhouse though, and ive got all my gc games on it again. As for the gc itself, i dont really know what ill do with it, guess I'll just hang onto it a while. Also have a ps3 im gonna try and mod one of these days and get into ps1/2 library
Post your N64 collection OP, maybe some people here would be interested in buying
Literally all 3d games from 5th gen aged badly. N64 is blurry and runs at 20fps, and PS1 looks muddy , can't render open spaces well and has massive texture warping. Not to mention tank controls are cancer.
Use a CRT to display SD games and they will look less blurry/muddy.
As for 20fps, as long as the framerate is consistent and the controls good, there's no issue with that.
I feel you. Did the same thing in the late 00's, but it was mostly gba and ps2 stuff. Fortunatly my genesis was boxed up and away at the time, plus back then they weren't worth as much. Gas was expensive back in those days although cigs were cheaper.
