Kind of a weird game. Camera is zoomed in more than the past few MMX games, and the stages aren't really built for the same high speed blasting around like the older MMX games. But the presentation, soundtrack, and boss fights are all top tier. Sadly, at least to me, this was the last MMX game I could call above average. The basic game design went into the toilet in X5 and X6, and I don't really know why. And it goes without saying X7 and X8 are rough.

I can't get into X4 - The production values are tremendous but the game just bores me. The level design has very little vericality, mostly being full of linear corridors where nothing happens, the difficulty is too low to ever really engage outside of the final boss (Which while challenging borderlines on tedious with how much you have to hit him and dodge his attacks)

I genuinely prefer all the other PSX entries to it.

Oh no, Inafune always praised Iwamoto and he was one of the guest designers for Mega Man & Bass' robot masters. The guy loves Iwamoto as much as he does Ariga.
It was actually a jab at Okohara, who went on to direct X5 through X7. After X7 he got demoted/"transfered" to the mobile game division (as in, the old cellphone games, pre-smartphone) and was replaced by a different director in X8.

Okohara, despite writing Bass' ending in Power Fighters, had this headcanon the X series wasn't the future of classic, at odds with Inafune, Kaji and BAMBOO on this.

The Ranma 1⁄2 anime aired 35 years ago, I think we should have a thread about the videogames based on it.
Starting with imo the best one, Chougi Ranbu Hen, I think Japan still has tournaments for this game.

Ranma 1/2 Hard Battle/Bakuretsu Rantou Hen is probably the most well-known game due to being the only one with an overseas release (if you dont count Street Combat), it tries to be an easy to play fighting game by using simple commands instead of motions (think of using special moves in smash brothers), the results are mixed overall (i think it feels kinda odd to play) but there's some positives, I do like the spritework in this game a lot for starters, I prefer how Akane plays in this game in comparison to her Chougi Ranbu Hen counterpart and while the roster is missing some key characters (I dont think there was people excited to play as The Gambling King over someone like Kodachi), I do like that it has Pantyhose Taro as a playable character (there's also Happosai but he's only playable via debug codes).
Not a bad fighting game but I'd rather play other SNES-exclusive fighters, including CRH.

Ranma 1/2 Datou Ganso Musabetsu Kakutou Ryu is the last Ranma game for the PC Engine, it's a fighting game that goes from the Bathhouse Battle story up to the Hiryu Shoten-Ha arc.
This is another really simple fighter where the combat is mostly just mashing the attack button when you're near the opponent or hold the button to unleash Ranma's Amaguriken attack, though it manages to be entertaining unlike the first PCE game, and the presentation is still top notch with nice looking cutscenes, you also get extra lives by playing a card game against the gambling king.
It's nothing extraordinary but its a charming title, worth a playthrough if you like the series.

Do you enable crosshairs when you play Doom? Is it considered cheating?
16 replies omitted. Click here to view.
>>
>>10860304
Yeah, but the guns all point exactly where they going to shoot, so the combination of that and some horizontal aim assist make crosshairs just a visual preference. It really is just showing where the center of the screen is, not even where the bullets will go since there is so much auto-aim in Doom generally.
>>
>>10860857
Part of it for me is that all the later shooters built those neural pathways of using the crosshairs for me over the decades, and with all the ports of Doom giving me the option it's what feels natural to me.
It's also that I sometimes play GzD and sometimes Woof, and the consistency feels better, even if it matters less for Woof. It doesn't intrude on classic or classic-like gameplay like some port options can do, so it's fine to me.

On the other hand, the guns point the direction, but the dot in the middle still gives a much clearer indication, which is nicer for playing fullscreen and with higher resolutions where the gun will be further away from the screen. Mind also how the gun sways back and forth as you move, with point of impact staying the same.
It also provides a consistent point of reference for the times custom .wads have replacement graphics which either aren't pointing clearly, or uses guns angled from the side like in later shooters.
That last one is thankfully less common in .wads (GzD or otherwise), people seem to have settled on the notion that centered sprites with centered projectile origins both handle better and fits Doom's aesthetic better.
>>
>>10860848
I don't have that problem myself, and this is the first time I've heard of it, but I can see why that would work for some people via the crosshair providing a visual grounding point to intermittently return focus onto with ass-hauling movement.
>>
>>10859185
This. It would probably drive me crazy how bullets don't even go where to cross hair is. Besides, you're supposed to be focusing on doing projectiles.
>>
>>10858106
Why on Earth would someone need a crosshair in a game where vertical aim doesn't exist

I love Natsume games and their remakes.

Play the Kikikaikai arcade game or the FDS game for a comparison. Pocky & Rocky SNES looks downright modern in comparison. Though P&R can be pretty tough overall.

I grew up in the absolute peak of pokemania but going back and playing these games again it's crazy how poorly designed they are.
>The opening third of the game is brutal. If you pick Charmander you're completely fucked and forced to grind for hours because all the trainers besides bug catchers are nothing but rock pokemon and there is nothing you can catch or train that they're weak to.
>pokemon types are almost worthless because they barely learn any moves. besides pikachu, which knows thundershock as a starting move, everything else you can catch just knows tackle or scratch or whatever until you grind them into the 20s
>because type matching barely exists and everything you can catch is just normal type anyway, battles are just spamming tackle over and over. Moves like hyper fang and sand-attack are actually S tier because of this.
>trainers pokemon for the first third of the game are way over leveled, and then they spend the rest of the game severely underleveled. Rockets in Mt. Moon have level 16+ pokemon. Trainers on the routes around Serge have pokemon level 18-24. And then the entire rest of the game 95% of trainers have pokemon barely at or under level 30. All of the wild pokemon are 10+ levels under trainers, so you again have to grind for an hour.
And then once you make it through the absolute slog that is this first portion of the game, the game becomes boring as fuck because once you finally learn type moves they usually one shot everything. Going back and playing these is like rewatching Space Jam and realizing it's actually a terrible movie

Not just "across the nation", here in Spain it was a rumor too among all the kids. Same thing with the glitches and Missingno. It was so creepy and fascinating and mysterious :)

There are a few games I still want to get and I'd like to get into other consoles eventually, but for now it's just too expensive and I'm lacking the space. For the foreseeable future it's emulation for me. Any other collectorfags that feel the same?

This is the correct answer. I don't, nor would I ever want to have a collection that big I just needed an image kek. I can provide my spreadsheet of games (though it's a tad bit out of date) of there's any doubts though.

>>10860710
Good. Collecting fucking sucks. It was fun in the late 90's when no-one else gave a fuck, stuff was dirt cheap and you could actually find things in the wild. Scrolling eBay and social media for overpriced crap blows. I weep for the zoomers.

Which part of Eastern Europe are you from?

This right here is my favourite game of all time. It has flaws, like any other game, but I don't understand one thing about old games, especially in this period and maybe middle 2000s.

Why are there so many spider enemies? Not only in this game but Diablo, Thief, Blood just to name a few more popular games. I don't have a problem with them, they're the right amount of scary and dangerous but why spiders and not snakes or bats or rats or something else.
