This board is for the discussion of classic, or "retro" games. Retro gaming means consoles, computer games, arcade games (including pinball) and any other forms of video games on platforms launched in 1999 and earlier. With the release of the 8th generation of consoles, the Sega Dreamcast will now be considered "retro", though the remainder of the sixth generation (Xbox, PS2, GameCube) will not.

alternatively delete the apparently useless PNAMES/TEXTURE1 from spookygfx1.wad

which only define a single texture S3DUMMY of unknown purpose. (where did it come from?)

It seems like over the past couple of years, next to no one has talked that much about any console older than the NES. The Atari 2600, the Colecovision, Vectrex, Odyssey 2, etc., it seems as though any and all conversation about these has been thrown out the window. Why is this?

My 2 cents:

1.) Home consoles were a niche phenomenon back then and had not yet arrived in the mainstream. Thus, less content, less interest.

2.) Arcade games were the genre-defining medium at the time, so are more often talked about. Games that were neither arcade ports nor knock-offs were a clear minority on early home consoles.

No problem, Bro. I also have the unreleased Vectrex adaptation.
I think they made a remake or something.

good game

>that would be simple but unfortuantly it is not possible

It absolutely is and anyone can do it with the starting weapon, crafting, and killing every enemy you encounter without excessive chaining.

Hey /vr/ I want to replay this game because I'm in the mood for some capeshit retro-vidya, what's the best version? PC, DC, PS1 or N64?

What is the best retro Zelda game and why is it Oracle of Seasons?
15 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
Friendly reminder that the Oracles games are competently made yet boring as shit.
I keep hearing this but still don't understand it.
"Boring" is subjective. I don't see how it's any more boring than LA.
For once the Oracles keep you on too tight a leach. You can actually sequence break in LA.
There's for sure one dungeon you can do out of order in Seasons. And there's more side stuff to do if you want to explore.
I remember LA leading you through the dungeon order. But you're probably talking about glitches or something.
>For once the Oracles keep you on too tight a leach
I don't care.

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?

Is Adam Bomb in the game, /vr/? Sal Divita confirmed that he was in the game, but he wasn't completed, probably meaning he didn't have a complete moveset/missing graphics. Of course, it could just be one big meme and he was never in the game at all. I've been trying to find a way to uncover any sort of graphic for him, but I don't think there's any graphic editors for Wrestlemania the arcade game. Curious about finding him because I actually really like this game and think its better then mk 1 and 2 and vanilla mk3, only losing to umk3
Also, if he does indeed exist, I'd say only in the arcade version, as Undertaker's fatality got removed from console ports, so if Adam Bomb was really in it, he'd probably be removed as well.
This is one of those games where all the console ports suck, but for different reasons.
I mean, the sega saturn version isn't so bad. The loading times and no music during the fights is pretty crappy, but it has everyone and the graphics aren't that compressed from the actual Arcade game. The SNES version on the other hand...

The 32x version SHOULD have been the best but its sound design is atrocious. Acclaim could never do justice to Midway's game, In Your House proved it.
32X is also running at only 30fps as well.

Trying to remember the name of a game? Ask here! Make sure to be as descriptive as possible!

I played a 3-D truck driving game years ago that I can't remember the name of anymore. I think it was an arcade game, but I'm not 100% sure. I distinctly remember driving on highways. The only thing that I am 100% positive about is that it was NOT Sega's 18 Wheeler, nor was it a "sim", ala Eurotruck Simulator or those types of games.

>genesis fighting game that was 2D. was really coloful
Eternal Champions? I don't think it's Japanese, though.
This is a flash game. Can't tell if its as valid.

You were a brown robot, kinda like a model doll you use for drawing and you had to escape or do some objectives while you moved on some tiles but at the same time you could not go step tiles you already stepped on. So it was kind of an puzzle-adventure game. It was isometric too. You were going through some lab and dark settings, pushing buttons (can't remember if reading logs), going from level to level.
No, he just plodded along. Just a simple walk.
What platform was it on?

Face it PSO fans, Rangers are the best class type in the game.

* Best weapons in terms of looks and abilities (Spread Needle for one).
* Coolest looks
* Most versatile class type. You have an effective support that can hurt things well (RAmarl), the best jack of all trades in the game (RAmar), and fucking shit up with high attack power (RAcast).
* Androids don't depend on traps to be able to hit a Booma like their Hunter cousins that couldn't hit shit if their lives depended on it.
* Two waifubait characters, while the other classes have one.

Hunters are retards that think they're cool with their high attack power and big-ass lame swords while Forces are buff and debuff slaves that occasionally get uppity and cast an attack technique or two to pretend they're useful for anything besides letting the adults in the room hurt things better.

Late but I fucking love you my dude.
it really does seem like hunters just got ignored or nerfed as the versions rolled out, or maybe ranger just got brought up to par and just them removing some shit from hunters is what makes them seem so much worse

Hunters weapons are still fun but it gets less fun when you realize the game is much smoother with ranged weapons and that you kinda just get shit on most of the time when you try to man mode shit without a buff slave

I think Hunters were at their best in V1 and V2. V1 had good common items, Spread Needle, and all techs available to them. V2 had good common rares for them.

Once the GC version hit, they got hit with the nerf stick real bad, while Rangers got better guns in the form of S-Ranks, and much easier to get rares from V2. RAmarl is a solid addition to the Ranger roster, while HUcaseal is kind of a gimmick that needs buffs to stay competitive for damage. BB hurt them even more, with their new rares being junk or gimmicks, while Rangers got Heaven Striker and adding hit to Baranz Launcher.
How many people play this still?
I'm aware there is a free one that still has a somewhat active userbase, and i've debated getting it before, but I'm not sure if the community would be fun to play with or not.
ephineas population has gone up actually, it used to only get 30 or so players at any time now it seems to always be 100+, its a small community, but its actually pretty easy to get games going

but due to the community size its probably not a good idea to be an asshole cause you will be instantly ostracized

Come on, Anon. Classical literature isn't that hard for a child to grasp. I was made to study literature and the piano when I was 8 and I wasn't some kind of prodigy. Give kids more credit.
No, you just need non-autistic parents.
It befuddles me when people tell me stories about their parents getting them a console but never buying any games, or just telling them they can't play for more than 5 minutes a day or shit like that. I had restrictions when I was a kid, but never so severe. And I had all the time in the world both to play games and read books. Your parents were assholes if they had to dictate how you should spend your free time.

Why is this game still not on GOG?
23 replies and 4 images omitted. Click here to view.
I would actually create an account and even downloaded that stupid client of theirs just to get this game.

God fucking dammit I miss it so much.
You don't need the client though.
Only like 3 multiplayer games depend on GOG Galaxy, otherwise there's no reason to install it.
Mars Guo is my dude!
I know. What I meant was that this game would make me install it if they forced it. That's how much would I be willing to sacrifice for this game.
I always started with Ebe Endocott then jumped to "Bullseye" Navior as soon as I unlocked him.
