Has anyone actually bothered with emulation on iOS? While I think it's a great step to create mainstream interest in emulators and maybe inspire some would-be devs, I just don't see the point. No buttons, no external storage. MAYBE I can see myself throwing some simple turn based Gameboy/SNES RPG's on it, but I have a couple chinkhelds and 2 hacks 3DS's, so... why?

I know I'm definitely not the target audience for this, but I'm curious about everyone's thoughts.

anon provides contending information, im wondering if this issue is actually resolved, if so the whole apple slowing down on purpose should be solved completely? I gotta agree that the smoothness and consistency across the apple products are a nice change from android, but maybe that was just when i switched for the first time.

Zoomers won't remember jaggies being a huge controversy on PS2. Everyone wanted it to have aliasing like N64 back in the day.

Must have been a big controversy on Dreamcast, Gamecube, and Xbox too given 99% of games had no anti-aliasing there either.

Dead or Alive 2: Hardcore looked worse than the Dreamcast release. Jaggies and worst lighting.

Magazines fell over themselves with the coping and justifications in reviews of the time.
>>
>>10880302
Looked worse because it is a port and devs had little experience and knowledge on the PS2 hardware in the early years of the ps2 life.
Max Payne is super bad because of this
Soldier of Fortune (a pc game ported to consoles) is a reliable display of how far behind the Dreamcast hardware was in terms of technology just 2 years after its release.

god DAMN this game is a huge improvement over the original

This. Every thing you do in 2 is either basically trivial or straight up obscure bullshit. Gems don't require you to not die to get them and are hence all about knowing about hidden boxes, while the game only has one 'time trial'. Boss fights in particular are hilariously bad.

3 is one of the absolute best platformers ever made and outshines the rest of the series. You can spend as much time as you want focusing on the relic challenges and maximizing your %, for which there's always something to do.

I know people claim it does nothing, and that simply reinserting the cartridge is what does the trick, but I disagree with this, as blowing has a better success rate than just reinserting it.
And isopropyl alcohol does a pretty mediocre job of cleaning anything that's really dirty. I've had some cartridges which no amount of iso fixed, and I indeed had to wind up using a bit of stovetop cleaner to get it to work. Also, Deoxit is great once you clean off some of the grime, especially since it works as a bit of a lubricant, really helpful for things like MVS carts which are notorious for connection problems.

It's great because the cartridges last just long enough to work when the store owners tests them but then the corrosion sets in by the time some dumb faggot buys the plastic crap lol

just played through and beat Castlevania Legends for the first time because it's on the Switch Online thing. didn't plan to but it turned out to be a short and mostly easy game outside of a couple of sections.
also recently beat Taro's Quest on the NES, which is an unreleased English prototype for some Ninja Jajamaru game that always kind of interested me for some reason. Very barebones and Dragon Quest as can be, but I'm old so I can still enjoy that.

I always play retro games with a scan of the manual handy, but not even the manual explains how the boots work, it just says "these boots allow you to jump." The game lets you equip a magic spell and the jump boots at the same time but since you get magic first and equipping both defaults the A button to magic there's no way to intuitively understand that you have to unequip magic to use the boots. They really should have made the game controls prioritize the jumping so if you tried to use magic after equipping the boots you'd jump and realize you need to unequip the boots.

Its not a period piece Anon. It was just set contemporaneously (or a couple years in the future I guess) with its release date. The remake would be a period piece, but not the original.

Nice pew pew cowboy game. Playing the Xbox version at 60fps. The shooting feels nice but the enemies can be a bit dumb, and for some reason my headshots rarely land. The girl character also has a nice butt.

Duels can be hard. How am I supposed to win against three guys?

Maybe it is tied to higher difficulty but the base game wasn't good enough for a repeat playthrough on a higher difficulty. It sets up what feels like is going to be this grand story spanning multiple decades but then it just kind of boils down to "the asshole is here go kill him" and nothing really feels resolved. Call of Juarez which came only a year or so later is a much better game in basically every regard but is mostly forgotten, whereas even people I know who barely played video games were big GUN fans for some reason.

Yeah. I had to use the manual within five or so minutes because I had no clue how to exit town. I'd get to the world map and then select other town but had no clue how to wander the maps. Then I read the manual that said you pick up adventures from an inn.

I remember when I first moved out, I was living in an apartment in bumfuck nowhere with no computer, it was the middle of winter, and I could only go into town about once every two weeks. I saw this in a bargain bin at Gamestop for three bucks and thought "perfect, this'll give me something to do for hours" (I had my TV and PS2, but none of my games and the TV was too old to pick up the newfangled broadcast style).

Even with literally nothing to do, I still couldn't bring myself to play it. If the game had come with a manual or something, it might have been a different story.

I gave it a chance. I wanted to like it.

It's a bore; and I couldn't grasp why until I made a direct comparison with the PSX titles. The movement is slow and sluggish, and the camera is farther removed which doesn't help, levels have too much empty space with nothing going on. And of course the new gimmicks suck.
All they set out to achieve is copy Warped and they couldn't even do that right

>Fire up TLOZ for the first time in like 35 years
>get absolutely mogged trying to find the dungeons
Good lord, I'm surprised just how much trouble I'm having getting anywhere in this. I remember all the enemies and items but apart from the first dungeon which is right near the start across the bridge which I cleared, I can barely find ANYTHING. I'm not playing in huge long sessions, just an occasional burst before bed every night, but each time I wander out from the starting area and get lost and eventually killed by tectites or armos or something. I managed to buy the blue candle and I remember there are certain trees you can burn, finally after burning every suspicious one I managed to find... Level 8! But I haven't even found 2 yet. I found the white sword but can't claim it yet, I remember how to get through the lost woods (NWSW), and I found the graveyard and remember the ghost trick, but past that, this game is flooring me.
I'm sure I'll find them eventually, but for such a "small" map it sure is surprising how hidden away everything is. What a trip.

It's wild to me that you remember how to get through the lost woods (which isn't even mandatory) but not the location of all the dungeons. Granted, I wish I didn't know the entire game world by heart, because the exploration aspect is completely missing from my playthroughs now.
