Board: /vr/

"/vr/ - Retro Games" is 4chan's imageboard for discussing retro console video games and classic arcade games.

↑↑↓↓←→←→ BA START

triforce
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.

I realize this is the last board to graphicsfag on, but couldn't they have done a bit better? This was a highly anticipated entry in a very popular series in a very popular genre, and the result looks more like an early Playstation game. Chrono Cross and Final Fantasy IX, which came around at the same time, blow it out of the water graphically. The interfaces come off as strikingly shoddy as well. What was up with this game?

A common critique I see of the 5th generation I see is that the transition to 3D ruined a lot of great 2D franchises, often killing them.

it's the completely random jumps of Hammerman. given that their is no indication of when the enemy will jump (like the tells in say, Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!!) if you encounter these guys at the end of 8-3 or 8-4 as small Mario you are fucked.

Random chance being required to win wasn't acceptable in the paper-rock-scissors of Alex the Kid and it's not okay here.

Easiest way to play each Final Fantasy Legend game?

real-map-for-final-fantasy-legend-3
FFL - 1 Human, 1-2 Mutants. Use the lack of other party members to pump the human's stats. Use the lack of other party members to 'force' RNG to give the mutant more stats. Steamroll the game since no boss really requires multiple party members, and encounters with multiple enemies can simply be run from.

FFL2 - 4 Robots. Run from all fights, use what weapons you pick up, and prioritize one AGL-based robot until you have enough found equipment to build multiple viable robots. Some bosses require a few tries, but since there's no grinding the game is 10x faster and easier.

FFL3 - ?? No idea, fill me in /vr/

Did people really go to RadioShack in 1978, plop down $50 for a game, go back home, boot up their system, and get blown away by being able to control a square shooting dots at other squares on a blank background? I understand that no one expected games to be like their box art covers, but was this system really that impressive?

I can see how Pong, Tennis for Two, or any arcade machine could have amazed someone, but was there really anyone who felt that spending $50 on somehow fucking up Pac-Man, games where circles can't even be rendered, or games that promise fantasy worlds but you're just a square moving around identical rooms, was worth it?

Imagine how much board games you could've bought instead. Or maybe even a used car. Or materials to build a treehouse. Who was actually having fun playing this? Was it actually possible to spend more than 20 minutes playing a title?

Can I get some help identifying this possibly one of a kind DSi?

RDT_20190402_130824409879835
I've posted on as many retro gaming forums as I've been allowed to, and I can't find any new information. I'll summarize all the info I do have of it.

I was browsing ebay, happened to click on a dsi, saw the strange logo in the second pic, and I bought it.

I found the logo roughly translates to "National Vendor MD Championship". Here's it typed in case you want to search it, 全国ベンダーMD選 手 権 (選 could be wrong?)

It isn't listed on the console variant website, and they denied my addition due to lack of info on it.

Only information that I do have or that has been found by others, is this picture https://i.imgur.com/zxbzDGN.jpg which is a pin with the same logo, but 2007 instead of 2008, and this article https://www.marketingweek.com/2007/05/03/nintendo-and-coke-join-up-in-fun-and-games-venture/ that shows that it fits the span of their partnership. Which doesn't say too much on it's own.

Everything else has been guesses. I've found no direct relation to any exact event this could've been for, it's kind of hard for me to search considering I'm not japanese.

I'm looking to find mainly if any others of these exist, (0 pics online besides mine and the one the seller took) what event this is from, and how/what it was given for.

I appreciate *any* help, I'm running out of places to ask.

Why is this game so fucking dark? And I mean visually not content or plot wise. Every single other game I play has looked fine, but I had to max my brightness for this thing and it's still too fucking dark to see shit half the time. Did they get too confused with making a full 3d RE and forget to add any lighting?

Whats your favourite tomb raider level from the core design series? And why do you pick that particular level?

Me I'm pick madubu gorge I choose it because its long it has the best platforming in the entire series its use of bright tropical colours and there's alot of water and it has the best gimmick (kayak) of all the tomb raider games and has well hidden secrets and leaves the player little room for error and makes good use of the control set. Climbing, ducking, crawling, swimming monkey bars. And it gives the multiple paths.

Show me some screenshots of your favourite levels and tell me why you enjoyed them so much.

i knows there's already another tomb raider thread but this one will be better

What are some good games to play with my girlfriend?
We already finished pic related. It was great, but kinda too hard with its bullet hell, so I'm thinking some beat'em up like Streets of Rage or Golden Axe (not sure about GA though). Contra is there too.

How do you go about recreating that magical feeling from your childhood?

Headphones? Long sessions only? Pillow forts and handhelds? A metric FUCKTON of weed and booze?

Talk about it. Have you achieved that feeling with any recent retro games? I have to say Wario Land 1 feels like SML2 but better. I wouldn't have the patience for it sober, but if I were a kid I know I would have loved it to death.

>no c64 general
Ok who's the biggest c64 expert around here? I want to find the name of a game from my childhood. Mostly what I remember about it is that it was similar to rasputin or fairlight but the player seemed to be a robot and it was extremely difficult to play without a manual. I don't think we even figured out how to get out of the first room.

Looking for a game

c322d62bac67a9b757624a32197140a988dac0f4ce031af18283df06c0a9b238
I'm looking for a specific point-and-click adventure computer game for children with dark visuals. I know for sure that it was published before 2004 and that it was available for sale in Germany and it had German voice acting.

The game is about a female mouse who falls down a well and wants to get back home. There's a level where she has to help a centipede with her shoes. In an other level there is a spider and a math/word puzzle. In a later level the player has to solve a puzzle while the protagonist begs a scientist mouse to stop something.

Abandoned Content from Retro Games

Harvest Moon 64 - Princess Vanilla
I just found out recently about Princess Vanilla from Harvest Moon 64 that was unused in the final version of the game. Looks like she was supposed to be a secret character, possibly a hidden girl you could marry.

Does anyone else know hidden content from retro games that was cut in the final version?

Graphical Errors in Video Games

file
On the coffee mug, in the space between the handle, it shows a green floor instead of white shirt sleeve that it should.

Also, the floor isn't even green, it's blue. So it'd be wrong either way. I noticed because I wanted to get this printed on a tea mug and I hate errors.

Amiga in Japan, ROK and Taiwan

Amiga3000TSys
Why didn't the Amiga have very much success in Japan, ROK, and Taiwan? The OCS Amigas, and especially the ECS Amigas had both graphics and sound capabilities that at least rivaled, if not surpassed the Sharp X1, many of the Fujistu FM models(especially the models from the 1980s) and earlier versions of the NEC PC-98 series.
>EHB modes, and later the HAM modes.
>the 2000, 3000, 3000T and both 4000 models had slots that allowed for things such as another floppy drive, HDD, CD-ROM drive and on the inside, ISA PC cards.
>AGA and later RTG archiecture on models such as the 1200, 4000 and 4000T.

Is retro video game collecting dying?

Atari-Graveyard-Cartridges
I know a lot of big time collectors that have sold off their collections recently, all because they no longer had interest in the hobby. Stores in my area are starting to get a lot more retro games traded in and they are staying on the shelves way, way longer than they were just a couple years ago. Also, looking on price charting, a lot of game consoles are either plateauing in price or are declining overall. What do you think? Has anyone else noticed a general pull back in interest on retro games?

Just started playing this OH MY GOD. The nostalgia hit is astonishing. I'm hearing all the dialogue in Harrison Ford's voice. The MIDI soundcard rendition of John Williams music is bringing tears to my eyes. I feel like a kid seeing Raiders of The Lost Ark AND like a teenager playing on my Dad's 386 VGA PC at the same time. It's incredible.

Is it actually a good game?

Hey /vr/, I was going through some old boxes when I found these things laying around. I did a bit of Googling but I couldn't really find much on these specific versions of the games (mostly due to their simple names). Is there anything interesting in here or should I just pack these back up? I don't own a mac or an attachment for reading floppy discs.
