I forgot we have to multiply twice (old and new color) so add another 2 zeros to the cycles. Or calculate just with one decimal. Of course a compuetr doesnt calc in decimal, but in byte, so it wouldnt be 100 (for 2 decimals), but 256 or 64.

You are of course right, but not in every case. People say the saturn has no (graphic cpu) -transparency. I am just saying transparency is always possible and a very simple concept. Just very taxing (for the graphic cpu too).

It sucks for your kids that their dad is an internet faggot who everyone hates.

my mom told me my friends dad was a pedophile because he tried to take pictures of me and his son gaming, and I started to act so weird around them when I'd be at their place playing vidya that we just drifted apart.

We had some fun ass birthday parties tho.

his dad made him turn gore on low if it had the setting, but i'd convince him to turn it back up when we'd sneak back out to play after he went to bed with the volume on super low

PS you're adopted, i hope he finally told you.

At long last, the Voyager 3 space probe is nearing completion. In addition to data gathering, there will be something included on board to presumably one day be discovered by extraterrestrial life. This time, instead of a golden record, we're including video games!

You're in charge of picking 5 games which not only represent the best in gaming, but Earth as a whole. Which 5 do you choose?

Not him, but this was common knowledge among DD1 players for years. Most Youtube ecelebs probably only played the NES version anyway, which forced you to level-grind to gain the elbow strike (which wasn't as effective as it was on the arcade).

Unlike the NES version, the arcade version of Double Dragon II didn't take no prisoners, literally.

Lately I owe a big sloppy kiss to the anon who suggested trying the mobile version of Neo Turf Masters. I'd tried going back and doing the SNES golf games I knew and some of the Win55 era stuff and none were as fun as I remembered. This one is just the right level of arcadey goodness.

>there's a shitload of things you can configure
Keyword here being "can". You CAN configure pretty much everything you want, but you don't have to. Downloading a core and loading a game takes even less than five minutes. So it doesn't "take hours" to configure if you want to play games, it takes hours if you want to experiment with shaders, filters, and all sorts of settings, and that's something you don't HAVE to do.

When OP couldn't beat Caves because he's too stupid to take all of 60 seconds to practice the controls. So he jumped to the conclusion "this game is ugly therefor it sucks!" because he's a bad mad baby.

He died with dignity.
No furries.
No offensively mediocre or outright broken games.
No autistic adventure fags wishing death to anyone different, nearly everyone.
No gen-z shitposters needing to validate themselves over a kids game instead of admitting they suck at action games.
I am glad sanic got mania, but that's it.
He's still in deep shit.

This game fucking rules. It's very basic, but that's kinda the charm of it. Very much like Super Mario Bros, but with agent theme. I also enjoy the levels and the overall design of the game, it's almost like those stickmen drawings you would draw during class, but I guess that's what they were going for.
The height differences and the maze like level design is awesome.

Crystal Caves is also very similar, but I always liked Secret Agent more because of the real world setting.
