Romhacks Anonymous 05/04/2021 (Tue) 20:35:13 No. 12 [Reply]
Any cool romhacks or translations you know about? I recently played Rockman CX, a massive MM2 romhack with plenty of crossovers and cool new bosseshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v5WejVCT2pI

>>140 Nice, it reminds me of that freeware game called Eversion that was inspired by Monster Party.
>>145 Sorry for such a late reply. If you haven't already found it, try looking around. Unfortunately, I believed the author removed it from SMW Central so I don't know where else it could be. >>146 Yeah, it does kind of look like Eversion.
>>145 >>149 Actually, I'm wrong. It's still on the site. Here's a link: https://www.smwcentral.net/?p=files&u=7012

Anybody like this game?

>>93 The first and second W&W were straightforward, even if batshit chaotic hard for beginners. You just beat levels until the game is done. W&W3 stands out because it wasn't that. It's an open world game that you need to figure out how to beat by exploring and talking to NPCs. It's much more chill. I do recommend it to you if the first game wasn't your cup of tea.
>>91 It's the only one of the trilogy that I never played. I always liked the artstyle and music of the W&W games.
Never played it. In fact, the only one I played out of the trilogy was the first one.

Baroque for the Sega Saturn and Playstation 1 what super cool for its time. It has a really great aesthetic of machines and flesh, distortion, and so on, it's a rogue-like with a story that is also quite cool, and it really just nails it at being memorable for me. Sinful Eyes is my favorite track across all the ports.
Super Castlevania IV ending theme is one of my favorites. It really hit home for me once you finish the journey and you get those flashback animations of the places you've been.

>>101 There’s hints here and there that the games take place in the same world, but the plots are completely unrelated, so it’s not necessary to start from the beginning if you don’t want to.
>>63 It's not shit like Zelda. It's more like a SoM clone.

What's the time limit for a game to be considered retro? Anonymous 05/14/2021 (Fri) 04:49:27 No. 79 [Reply]
It's clear at this point as the years go by systems like the ps3, Xbox 360, and the Wii would be considered retro systems at this point but other disagree. What are your opinions on this because as unusual as it feels to some I feel that it's apt for the seventh console generation to be considered retro. Pic unrelated.
10 posts and 5 images omitted.
I would say not until about 2025 that 7th gen would be "retro", mainly on account of it being an unusually long generation. >>105 >>113 >hurr durr muh retro feeling Fuck off with that cuckchan faggotry. This is the mentality of MY CHILDHOOD IS MORE IMPORTANT TO YOUR CHILDHOOD
>>131 This nigger gets it. I don't care about your feelings, time is the only true measurement tool when it comes to what is retro and what isn't.

Medievil Anonymous 06/05/2021 (Sat) 00:24:08 No. 129 [Reply]
Do you guys like Medievil? I loved the first game as a kid but I could never beat it as a kid. I find it amusing that it got not one but TWO remakes across different generations. However no one ever seems to talk about MediEvil 2, was it that bad? How good is the PS4 remake?
I have yet to play the remake but it i've heard mixed things about it.

Nintendo 64 thread Anonymous 05/19/2021 (Wed) 19:47:18 No. 114 [Reply]
Figured I'd make a thread about the mediocre console with a handful of great games. What're your favorite N64 games /vr/? I've been playing the english patch of Custom Robo and Donkey Kong 64 recently, been having fun with both of those games although I wish DK64 wasn't super autistic about collectables.
Conker's Bad Fur Day was my favorite N64 title as a child but now as an adult, I can look back on titles like Bomberman Hero and Wave Race with more fondness.
I liked the N64 version of Resident Evil 2 that has a new control scheme without tank controls which makes the game a cakewalk since the enemies can't keep up with you.

this is my favorite retro game it came out two years before i was born
13 posts and 4 images omitted.
5, 6, and 7 were the peak of the series. 5 had the best gameplay and the most stupedly awsome stuff like number of worlds and best airship. 7 had the best story and atmosphere. The cancer that came out later doesn't matter, the original was fine. 6 did a good job at all those things. 7 did a great job with its minigames. Most rpgs do well to make their one minigame be tolerable.
Final fantasy nine is better people that like 7 are just closeted about wanting to fuck their male friends.
>>115 By that logic, all FF9 fans are just closeted furries.

Import games and consoles Anonymous 05/18/2021 (Tue) 06:59:36 No. 110 [Reply]
What import games does /vr/ like? I've been looking forward to playing Sweet Home. I have a Famicom I got some years back, and I can use the English translation as I own a flashcart. I'm pretty fond of the PC-Engine and MSX as well, both very interesting consoles/computers in my opinion. What does /vr/ like?
Fire Pro Wrestling anything and most Banpresto titles of yore.

Bomberman Anonymous 05/04/2021 (Tue) 20:12:43 No. 2 [Reply]
What's your favorite Bomberman game? Also definitely check out Power Bomberman, a massive Bomberman fangame with hundreds of characters and an active online community.
I'm not a big Bomberman fan, but I have a lot of nostalgia for Bomberman 64. I like the music especially.
link to Power Bomberman, which is completely free https://mega.nz/file/iXwxVAxa#MPs9PN9MhxBjPWnsDdwd9st56lMr0NchUtAxWa2DtGs If anyone is interested, a gamenight could be arranged

>>15 we got quite a few touching/molesting sims over the years (a recent one is Amuchan Developer) but their number is dwarfed by loli visual novels.
I'm pretty sure that there are no charts for old home computers like the Amstrad CPC or Speccy.

What Are (You) Playing? Anonymous 05/05/2021 (Wed) 13:53:01 No. 26 [Reply]
Title says it all. I'm currently playing through The Great Battle II: Last Fighter Twin, my first impressions of the game aren't all that great. You play as SD versions of popular Japanese characters from different franchises in a crossover beat 'em up. Extremely lackluster so far, since all characters play the exact same.

Same thing as the rest of her: puberty kicked in.
>>52 She's in the process of monsterizing into a kangaroo mamono. What other explanation could there be?
What's this game?

Retrocomputing game thread Anonymous 05/09/2021 (Sun) 02:14:25 No. 55 [Reply]
So /vr/, what's your favorite retrocomputer? I'm fond of the MSX and Amiga.. Both have some great games (especially the Amiga, check out Turrican). What's your favorite
Goddamn it, forgot to add "retrocomputers" at the end.
I haven't played that many reto computer games to make a proper judgement but the Commodore 64 seems to have the most active community and I've seen some sick demos and hardware pushing homebrew.
I played a bunch of ZX Spectrum platformers, they are fun for what they are like Jet Set Willy. These games are seriously unforgiving and probably amongst the hardest games i've ever played. The controls are simple and often satisfying when remapped using an emulator, this kind of experimental game design that tries to make out the best out of weak hardware is fascinating and completely gone nowadays. God bless the brits.
