You can't make achusshations like that without evidence, I asshume you have some?
I wish we'd gotten the planned Perfect Dark 2, where it turned out one of your female team-mates was a Skedar all along. Microsoft were so fucking incompetent back then, killing Rare's projects through sheer disinterest.

I wonder how much of that game will make it into the next Perfect Dark that's supposedly in development?

As someone who is a working adult with a life, I still find time to play games to completion. You just don't WANT to find the time. I used to same the same thing

I think of Sega rather filling the same shoes as Microsoft, not Nintendo.
That's a disgrace to Sega. Microsoft is a fucking joke and has no right being involved in vidya.
Dreamcast could fucking emulate the PS. It wasn't halfway at all.

Does Final Fantasy 9 use too many references from past games?
46 replies and 6 images omitted. Click here to view.
>FF is a game where Ninjas throw swords, Chocobos go "kweh", Cid builds stuff (mostly airships), and the Great Crystal (source of all magic) is imperiled by an ancient evil

Final Fantasy VII had basically of this, though? It had a ninja who likes to throw shuriken and other weapons, there's chocobo racing and even breeding, there's an airship captain named Cid... and like, the four Huge Materia are pretty blatantly the four elemental crystals from classic FF.

>Kingdom Hearts
you're just mad that you don't have anyone to eat sea salt ice cream with >:T
>the game you grew up with you only like because of nostalgia
>the game which was REALLY great was the one which I grew up playing
You VI fags are all the same
You've amazingly overlooked what I pointed out, let's just use FF7 as an example.

>One of the primary villains is named Garland (FF1)
One of the primary villains is named Sephiroth (Fiend) his design would essentially be reused for Bizzaro Sephiroth (FF6)

>whose castle is called Pandemonium (FF2)
Whose final dungeon is underground at the core (FF4)

>flies around in an airship called the Invincible (FF3)
flies around in an airship called the Highwind (FF2 Ricard Highwind)

>The Four Fiends of the Elements (FF1, FF4)
Granted but this is a trope across a lot of Asian media called 四天王, you could make the argument that the Turks are a version of this (with poor Tseng left out).

What's the general consensus on this controller?
Yes I know it's wireless.

Am I better of with this one or the version with the handles?
46 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
The SF30 Pro is shit. The regular SF30 is identical to an OEM SNES pad.
They're all wireless with the option to play wired (how I play).
Plastic and buttons are higher quality to original SNES/SFC controller. However the d-pad is smallish and bad. L/R buttons also feel smallish. I really wanted to like it but gave mine away mostly because of the bad, small d-pad.
So far I've read some bad stuff about them here, is this all also true with the newest builds?

I'm wondering if they addressed some issues with recent releases.
That's fixed on the Xenoblade 2 Pro Controller, fortunately.

Now this is an exclusive /vr/ problem, as thankfully 99% of most YouTubers call it out rightfully as the trash game it was - the same trash game I played in the late 90's.

So what's the deal? Is it because of the music? The general feeling that it could be more but isn't?

In my opinion, I feel like because there are a finite number of retro games, so some people are getting desperate -- especially in regards to quality N64 RPGs. Not to mention it's cheap as chips because of its low quality

So /vr/, what's the deal?

When I first heard about the game, I thought it was a joke parodying video game naming conventions.
Could Quest 64 beat Final Fantasy Mystic Quest in a fight?

most of the magazines that expensive back then were ones that came with demo discs
I never knew this existed and I'm a 30yo boomer.

What are some games with checklists or "totals" screens?

Including but not limited to collectathons. They just have to be games that let you track your progress this way or through some other concrete metric.

how ya doin', /vr/
today I have a comic I bought a while ago for the game Countdown Vampires for PS1. this was, apparently, released before CV as a sort of marketing tactic. while not technically a game, I figure it's close enough to a game to be posted here so what the hell.

anyway, I haven't seen it anywhere else on the internet so here's what probably isn't the first dump of a mediocre comic made to market a mediocre, though ambitious RE clone.

It's just a worse version of Panzer Dragoon with grating NPCs and an inferior OST.

while the babysitting in SF64 is slightly annoying, it's more than made up for by all the branching paths, alternate routes, and secrets in each level that give the game a ton of replayability. I like PD too, but it's much more simplistic and bare-bones
What a laughable comparison. SF64 is objectively superior in every conceivable way. SF64 is one of the greatest rail shooters ever made, meanwhile PD stews in mediocrity. Linear as hell, the controls are ass, the graphics are absolutely fucking abysmal, and it's repetitive as anything.

Now you take SF64... simple to learn but hard to master, tons of branching paths and hidden routes for endless replayability, more abilities and techniques to use, multiple vehicles to pilot, more enemy types and bosses, better graphics, better controls, multiplayer, a decent story, memorable and funny quotes (that apparently you are gay enough to consider 'grating' and not charming like most people)... I mean fuck, the fact anyone could actually think PD is comparable, let alone better, is just astounding to me.
I don't think OP even played the games. Notice how the only thing he comments about is NPCs and OST. Like wow, so much gameplay in your head OP.
Also, PD1 isn't really all that good. PD II Zwei is great though.
>Linear as hell
Woah a linear rail shooter what a fucking trash
I always loved the Aquas music, it actually reminds me of Panzer Dragoon music
So atmospheric and comfy.

With a game written with such specific hardware in mind, how much of it is even portable? Does anything survive of this version minus maybe a few graphics/sound assets?
There is no power in OP's arms.
There's a good chance that no hoarder beyond one of the developers even has this. If Sega ever goes fully under and sells off their office inventory, then maybe.
>that shit would have been maybe 15fps at most
Original Dreamcast Japanese version of Shenmue II drops below 20 sometimes in several places of the game (usually when there are more than 8 NPCs on screen at the same times, which is a very notorious case of that Kung Fu temple's courtyard with training monks).
Simply put the Saturn wasn't the correct console for something like Shenmue. Looking at 3D games that are considered boundry-pushing like Panzer Dragoon Saga, there was no real way for Shenmue to actualize without horrible compromises. I'm glad the Dreamcast turned the impossible possible.

I'd offed you myself with a real katana, if I'd met you on street.
I emulate everything on whatever offers the path of least resistance and has at least recognizable accuracy. I believe doing anything more than that to play old games is a waste of time and energy, and anyone who cares about input lag/scanlines/filters/CRTs/CBT/BDSM/minor sound/graphical errors is an absolute blockhead.
I just like testing emulators.
I write software that is designed to do this.

The only thing I have that is considered /vr/ is my old Sega Genesis and its games, which I've had for decades and played well into the 2000s, until it started having heavy difficulties loading games.
Never played anything on NES, SNES, N64, GB/GBC, Saturn, Dreamcast, PS1, or really anything until the GBA, DS, 3DS, and Wii. Also got a second hand Xbox.
Probably the oldest game I've really played and finished is Eastern Mind.
Spyro series is a bottom barrel platformer if you're looking for good gameplay.

Anyone have high quality Saga Frontier backgrounds?
It's really nice looking. You could just go in there and clean up some of those artifacts in photoshop pretty easily too to make it look better.
