Zed Blade - Konstruktion, Universe Blue (Manabu Namiki)

This man was clearly inspired by early Detroit and Chicago Techno. He even samples Jupiter Jazz in Battle Garegga

Haunted Castle - Cross Your Heart Stage 1, Bloody Tears Stage 3 (Kenichi Matsubara, Masahiro Ikariko, "T")

By far the more underrated title in the Castlevania series. Didn't know about this one until recently.

Let's discuss Project 1999 (Everquest)

its just dated is all. DAOC's client is pretty shitty as well
It's more than dated. The client has always been shitty even when EQ was modern. It's dated and shitty now, everything from the camera control to the lighting to the UI is awful. And let's not even get into the gamma issues.

Plus, if a new client were implemented, it'd be easier to add new content to the game. Classic EQ isn't classic when everyone knows everything about everything in the game and it's locked forever at some unchanging endpoint. But, like I said, not going to happen. Not nearly enough interest in EQ anymore to do something like creating an MMO client and several community attempts at it over the years have died.

as a kid I had no access to the internet, but I bought this magazine that came out every 3 months and which among tons of other things, had DN3D maps on its CDs.

Hexhouse is one of those memorable maps I got from that magazine which I remember to this day.
Pretty cool. Did you play the sequel back then?
The only memorable levels I played back in 1996-97 were the Aqua series by Ben Roffelsen. Did he make any further stuff for any games?

holy HELL this game aged like trash.

Most roguelites are fairly crappy in my opinion, but if someone plays them and has fun I'm fine with it the same as them having fun with Chrono Trigger. The popularity of Riguelites has bled over and is part of the reason for the surge in Roguelikes as well. But even for people who don't migrate to the "real" genre, I'm happy if they're enjoying Dungeons of Dredmore or Pokemon MD or whatever.
Interestingly, the Pokémon games have true roguelike modes within the overall roguelite game. I don't know if this is popular though
I've played a couple of them, they require slogging through the regular story mode first abd then aren't great (at least in my opinion) but I think they may be a good gateway drug for some to get deeper into the genre.
As you know this usually doesn't work, since they get to love them for the aspects that aren't in roguelikes. If they were interested in the latter in the first place they would've played that instead. With some exceptions, specially considering this is a Pokémon game, so many Pokémon fans may have played this just due to the IP and then became curious about other similar games, where they previously didn't even know the genre existed
It's all good in my opinion. If someone plays PMD abd likes it then gets to the bonus dungeons and doesn't care for it that's fine. Just the same as someone who plays through it, finds it middling and then gets hooked on the bonus dungeons is also fine. I don't care if someone else's tastes line up with mine just so long as they're having fun.

It's a little like beat en ups and fighters. Even though they share some surface similarities, player vs player fighting games are probably my favorite genre of all time, while beat em ups are right at the bottom as one of my least favorite. Even though I'd literally rather go to the dentist than have to play Streets of Rage again, I am still happy someone else enjoys it. If it makes them curious about KoF or something that's awesome, and if it doesn't that's cool too.

How does /vr/ feel about the Super Star Wars Trilogy?

>There are so many lame jokes and 'go nowhere' scenes
Yes, because Star Wars and Empire totally didn't have scenes like that. Need I remind you of the whole C-3PO subplot in Empire? Sounds to me like you're mad at a Star Wars movie for being a Star Wars movie.
Why is it so hard?
> with only one on-screen Ewok casuality IIRC
Wrong. Theres plenty.
Played them as a kid. Felt very confused and unsatisfied. Probably haven't touched these since 97.
Not him but no there isn't. Not on screen anyways.

I enjoyed these games a lot. Empire being diffucult made me get it in a sweet trade so that's a bonus to me.

I just recently learned that some people prefer classic Megaman over Megaman X. They must not have played much of it. Boy, are they missing out.

Megaman X is truly the evolution of Megaman and going back to the classic series with Megaman IX was a huge mistake.

X is superior in every way. The X series introduced a dark and complex plot with character development outside Megaman and Dr. Light getting duped by Dr. Wily over and over again.

The enhanced movement options such as the air dash and wall jumping open up a more exciting and dynamic world.

The movement of X is smoother and the level designs are more consistent and are not just disappearing blocks over death spikes repeated over and over in different settings.

Capcom alienated Inti? What the fuck? Explain.
X 1 is great. The other X games just can't rival the NES classics though.
Nigger games like Mega Man 5 and Mega Man V are night and day, being able to easily distinguish the two is pretty important

>Fuck the age rules
Check out nekochan.net , it's Silicon Graphics Indy, early 3d workstation and it's really cool. It's running IRIX, a unix operating system made by yours truly, Silicon Graphics.
DO NOT THROW IT AWAY. It's damn precious.
If he's lucky it could have Nichimen Graphics N-world - a precursor to Nichimen Graphic Mirai. N-world was used in lot of early PS1 games and of course N64 too. It's a 3d animation package and really good for low poly stuff.
It could also carry PowerAnimator (precursor to Maya) and some other stuff.
SGI machines are cool, I had O2 and Octane and was collecting old software lot of people havne't even heard of.
Just google Nichimen N-world and you'll get better idea.
Unofrtunately they require probably a dongle and license server so he can't probably run them. And if he also needs a special cable for connecting it to monitor, not sure if he has it or not...
>It's damn precious.
You know, it's really not. It's a painfully outdated piece of hardware that, while fantastic in its time, serves no appreciable use at all in 2018. Like, none. The only reason they command the prices they do is because there's a fairly pathetic collector's market, mostly comprised of larping children with scorching cases of retrofetishism, who are obsessed with the notion of owning "an authentic vintage eunuchs workstation" despite the fact that the day of the Unix workstation has been gone for ages. The workloads these machines handled have been entirely supplanted by x86 machines running either Linux or one of the other gorillion Unices still available.

Additionally, the chances that OP's unit had any involvement in game development are slim to none. These machines were predominantly used in other industries.
