i prefer 2nd game over 3rd because it's not as rough when it comes to collectibles. in 3rd game collectibles are very rigid and checkpoints sends you all the way back without retaining them. 2nd game actually encourages you to die because collectibles dont reset themselves

Spider-Man vs. The Kingpin likely doesn't count, as it's a licensed IP that got tons of video games, but that's my issue, this specific title was superb, probably the 1st one to ever get the character in it right, and then all it got was an enhanced SEGA CD version, there were plans for a sequel, but it got scrapped in favor of X-Men, nothing against the X-Men... but man, a sequel would've rocked.

I mean, all we got for Spider-Man after that until the Neversoft 3D title in 2000 were beat 'em ups that barely felt like the character and were just mediocre at best, or awful action platformers.

All of the titles that felt like they could've got a bit of the magic in this one, like Spider-Man TAS, Web of Fire, Arcade's Revenge... were just awful to play, we needed Spider-Man vs. The Kingpin 2.

Funny, I tried to play my old Croc 2 demo disc on Duckstation a while ago and some of the textures were fucked. It works on my PS2 and I'm not sure if it was just my disc not dumping properly, I couldn't even find an ISO to try because it was a PAL copy.

In my older millennial mind, I love that late 90s era of gaming mags. You saw iconic mascots or franchises like Tomb Raider or Doom 64 just BAM! smackdab in the middle of the magazine aisle or the checkout counter, and you saw these flashy, eye-catching GamePro covers with Lara Croft guns-a-blazin' ready to kick some ass. It was cool, it was fun, it was captivating for the time, especially if you had no internet. I also love the little ads they had from that era, like browsing through a '99 or 2000 Playboy issue with fucking Legend of Dragoon PS1 advert in the middle of it.

Ultra Game Players was a gut busting read. I read every word in that mag, even the legal stuff.

Next Generation was my go to for a more serious read.

Gamefan was another favorite. I didn't particularly agree with their game reviews but the anime reviews introduced me to a lot of good animes. But it was so hard to get in my area so I rarely bought it.

In those days, I remember Silicon Magazine. It was free in any video game store you'd visit and was not really blatantly advertising. Some nice articles on games that may not normally get enough of a spotlight. Sure things are better now with internet articles, but the free gaming magazine made it so you're never empty handed just browsing the games in a store. The focus on odd titles may have shaped my interests.

I'm repairing my old Voodoo 5 5500 PCI. My idiot teenage self actually managed to make it worse with my (at the time) terrible soldering skills and by putting it in the oven out of desperation... twice. I also stored it in a big box full of other PC components for years which caused a lot of surface mounted components to chip off.

Replace the remaining SDRAM chips until hopefully one of them fixes it. If that doesn’t work I may have to start worrying about the other VSA’s RAM, or perhaps one or both of the VSAs themselves may need replacing. For now signs still point to a RAM issue.

Took me roughly 2 hours or less to beat it. Recommend short games you can finish in 1-2 sittings (1-3 hours on average in total).

Click Manga Click no Hi is one of those games that I would imagine would be horribly disappointing to get as a kid because of how short it is, but in our current privileged world where we can all play any game we want whenever we want for free it's delightful. A cute, happy, bite-sized experience.

We need to HAVE a Kirby mandate. The Nightmare Trilogy and most other games not developed by Sakurai (including the crap from the GBA-Switch eras) have a ton of DeviantArt-tier characters that suck.

The argument is always that GC/PS2 games were made to be played on big televisions. It's still a small screen on a device made to fit in the palm of your hands. So I don't see why 5" or 6" should matter. You're either okay with playing 6th gen games on handheld screens, or you're not.
>>
I'm heading into this rabbit hole. I seem to have more fun getting my old devices to play games rather than actually playing them, but do enjoy it enough that I want a dedicated couch device. Ps2 would be great mostly because I want to play breath of fire dragon quarter and some other games I missed out on. Looking at the higher end handhelds the price point puts me in the why not just buy a steam deck, then its well might as well get a legion go. While those aren't exactly portable they'd work for couch gaming.

Then I look at smaller devices like the miyoo or some of the mid spec anbernics and wonder about ergonomics. Nintendo switch is enjoyable but I can't play for a long time without the satisfye grip so ergonomics is definitely a factor. Anything yall might recommend looking into for edc or couch gaming is appreciated. Seems like most handhelds have at least some dock to tv capabilities.

Don't you have to rely heavily on non-lethal attacks to do a no-kill run? It's still remarkable that you can do that, but saying you can play through the whole game "without causing harm" is stretching it a bit.

Just finished it yesterday. It's a 7/10. Would be a 9/10 if the maps were much tighter and ammo not as abundant. Game feels oddly small for how long it is, maybe because it's all split up.
Highlight for me was returning to the military base with Chris,seeing how everything canged, doing all the stuff that Claire left unfinished, but you're gone from there too soon.
