thoughts on borderlands series?
5 posts omitted.
>>414 Same here, even solo'd 95% of my time in mmo's. As I recall all B1 story line was all solo-able There may have been a side quest for a raid boss at the end I do remember grouping up for a dlc boss at the end. Also by skipping 'release' and playing the games a year later I generally find you can miss the worst part of pug fags in the beginning. Also I had pirated all games up till last year and we were using a program (Tunggle) for borderlands that allowed internet gameplay for pirated games that had LAN enabled. So it goes without saying it wasn't your typical online console culture. >>368 (20 days old, so may not ever read) I did buy borderlands packages when the were on sale awhile ago OP, (haven't replayed much more than act1 of B1 so far) so if you want to give game a try, Im willing to play a bit.
RNG with guns doesn't work, no matter what. The "humor" is intellectually insulting.
>>368 Meant for normalfag. Normalfags are retarded. >>412 >buying games Look at this normalfag lmao
>>368 Boring, outdated, cringe and lifeless the faggot game creators insults you with retarded jew sjw talk for just playing the game.

The game was made by a literal Jew, and if you played it there are various references to the holohoax, the 6 gorillion figure, and the head of both anti-UN globalist groups are niggers. Also "ebil" germanic type cast for one of the UN soldiers. All in all the game is probably the closest we ever got to telling most of the "truth" about the world as it is; but again, just as in our world, misdirecting people away from the real parasites and scapegoating other groups/ fake entities/ illuminati or "white people".

Old school Doom is the best tbh. The balance is perfect, both in SP and DM. And it's a piece of cake to make stuff for, so there's endless new levels and mods coming out all the time. >>444 Everyone has their reasons for playing a certain way. Nice thing about Doom is you can do it with keyboard only or gamepad if that's comfy for you. It doesn't even matter unless you're playing pro-level deathmatch or something. Hell, with Chocolate Doom there's no autoaim or mouse look anyway, and that's what I use 99% of the time, so my custom keyboard bindings are all I need. Also I don't even own a mouse. I fucking hate them and kill on sight. ^_^

>>470 > no autoaim Eh, I meant there is autoaim rather, in the vertical direction. Like I can take this mutha out just by turning left a bit. So that makes it possible and comfy to play with keyboard.
>>400 practically all mainstream entertainment is lefty. at least the stuff in deus ex doesn't feel like a mindless caricature of rightwingers

This thread is dedicated to the Nintendo DS. Say something nice about it.
All members of the nintendo DS family have two 256X192 pixel screens. When considering both screens together, the total pixel count is 256x384. This corresponds to a 2:3 aspect ratio. NINTENDO DS: (OG DS): Reflective TN screens, frontlit NINTENDO DS LITE: Transmissive TN screen, backlit NINTENDO DSI: Transmissive TN screen, improved time constant, backlit NINTENDO DSI XL: VA/IPS type screen, good response time, backlit now you know

>say something nice about it -flash carts are cheap and generally available -tons of games released, with basically the entire system library is freely available for download. -file sizes are generally manageable (most games 16-64 MiB, some games up to 512 MiB) -good amount of RPGs, tactics, and puzzle games -a handful of full 3d action games, including Super Mario 64 and Tony Hawk Proving Ground and finally: The OG DS uses a reflective screen, so it is easily viewable in direct sunlight. As far as I know, the OG DS is the most recent gaming device that is fully playable in direct sunlight. The only other things that come close are Panasonic toughbooks and hacked e-ink e-readers. The DS is very comfy for a nice little morning sunbeam warmup session.

New 3DS homebrew & emulation experience Anonymous 09/23/2019 (Mon) 15:52:15 No. 39 [Reply] [Last]
How well does the New 3DS handle arcade emulation through the Retroarch FBA cores? Is performance good? Input lag acceptable? Would a Vita provide a better experience for arcade emulation?

I am considering picking one up as the prices decrease.

I've heard citra can't run AC new leaf, is this still true? pretty much the only game I want to play
I played New Leaf recently, you can run it and most of the DLC to my understanding, it ran just fine.
>>39 >>46 Ever since (((androids))) this sort of thing has felt dated. This coming from someone that in the early 2000s wished he had the Korean gp2x thing. I did end up having a psp emulate things okay, the old phat kind. I used that lumines game to hack it. The only psp game I ever bought was that game just to hack it to use the psp the same or similar way that I used a normal PC. I watched entire anime series on the thing back in the day and even browsed 4chan. I used it for music and as a pda basically too. It's snes was fine. It's n64 was awful. A cool thing about he original DS is that it had a dslinux. The PSP only did linux for proof of consept due to it already behaving as a pc well enough. The DS needed an actual opera gba device to even get online. I also remember reading in 2007 about a hack to put the gp2x online. I never owned anything but the original, non-hacked DS, and the hacked PSP that was the phat version. The only consoles I own now are the ps1 tiny thing, the gamecube, the ps2, the original nes, the original snes (talking US here), original gameboys, gamegear, and then just the old laptops and android devices of which are all I use, those last. Most of my games, approx 80, are roms. I don't have very many nice actual physical games due to being a poorfaggot and then NEET my entire life.
>>39 Oh, aside from that little blog post I just made OP, I just have to say that I have never vomited harder than when I tried out retroarch. It's bad. Fuck retroarch. It makes me want to go into the past and play a literal windows 98, as my first computer was better than the shit they have now days. Retroarch I tried with lakka on a raspberry pi and discovered how shit it was, modern programming. The zero can't even play snes properly. Everything is bloatware. But what REALLY got me was that no matter your device it only plays bin/cue rather than img/iso. Lakka let me know just how shitty that fucking garbage is. They obviously are spooked and being told not to let the downloadable common versions of the psx roms/isos to be usable. The iso/img are the altered non-detected kind. Fuck retroarch and this current year in general.

>>458 I have an Allwinner A20 SBC, and quickly realized most modern emulators are designed for modern x86 hardware. I haven't yet found a SNES solution, but it's not a high priority for me since I mostly care about Sega Genesis and older systems. These are what I'm using right now, with good results, and without even needing the OpenGL driver blob loaded. binary packages are from Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, since that's the Armbian build I installed. The others I built myself from source. NES/Famicom: fceux 2.2.2+dfsg0-1build1 Genesis: dgen-sdl-1.33 (./configure --without-cyclone) Amiga: e-uae-0.8.29-WIP4 (./configure --with-sdl --with-sdl-sound --with-sdl-gfx) Atari ST: hatari 1.8.0+dfsg-1 Atari 8-bit: atari800 3.1.0-2 MSX: openmsx 0.12.0-1build1 C16/64/128/etc: vice 2.4.dfsg+2.4.25-2 PCE: mednafen (I use "mednafen -force_module pce_fast" but not all games will run like this, so OpenGL is needed for the others) ZX Spectrum: fuse 2.9.4-1ubuntu3.1 Amstrad CPC: caprice32-4.2.0 (works generally ok but keyboard code needs a bit of work, but I can probably fix this)

>>441 It's kind of blah as an emulation machine. Except for PS1, that's pretty good. I think they did some fancy stuff with the hardware due to the CPU simularities, i've heard it called "simulation" instead of "emulation" for PS1. PSP games are pretty sweet when you run them from a memory card instead of the big disc drive, which fixes my original complaint about the system when it was first released. There's a pretty widely disseminated REDUMP set out there on some DDL sites and some good torrents. ~~info post~~~ One thing I haven't seen mentioned much online is that PSP systems do not seem very tolerant of large microSD cards. Compatibility can vary based on the exact microSD->sony bullshit adapter used. I tried to use a 200 GB card but couldn't get the PSP to actually format it correctly, so I went to 128 GB. The 128 GB card works, but there are predictable, relatively long (2-3 second) pauses at times when the card is accessed, such as when calling up the games list on a fresh boot. This effect seems to depend purely on the size of the formatted partition, and not on how full the partition is.

The FFIII remake and Star Ocean remakes are pretty good. CDRomance has a bunch of undubs available. Even as a non-weeb I like the undubs, since they zero out the extremely grade-c english voice acting and replace it with easily ignorable bug babble. A+.
>>445 It was better at emulation than the original ds you know. Back before the (((androids))) it was a stellar option for that sort of form factor thing. Now that they're here no one cares. The PSP has a fuckton of games is it's 'thing' though. I still find it funny that they made it so small when they could have had the ps1 be protable and large enough for real dvds. Those tiny discs they had were silly.

>>459 I have a DS Lite with flashcart. It's mostly just good for emulating other portables like GB, GBC, GameGear, and Lynx. Otherwise the small screen size and resolution make it not so useful. But it can also natively run GBA and homebrew games. And having a touchscreen with keyboard on it makes sense in some cases.
I still like the PSP better than the DS for MD emulation since it's nice and easy and it can actually fit the full 320x240 frame for most games. The 3DS has enough for a full 320x240 frame so the PSP loses the advantage there. >playing GB and GBC games on DS this is actually fucking sick. I'll make a new thread

how does it stack up with the nintendo switch?
I have the GPD 1 and it's pretty comfy, but I ended up not playing games on it much. It's too weak to play many N64 games fullspeed, at least with default retroarch settings. Handles SM64 perfect (easiest rom in my standard test), can't keep 60 in Rush 2049 (hardest test rom I use). Dpad is a little mushy but it's apparently fixable if you're willing to do a full disassembly to swap out the rubber mat and d-pad cross with a DS lite.

It's still pretty great if you just want a "laptop" to permanently leave in your bag. I use it for connecting through hotspot when I want a "real" web browser, and for doing minor edits to .cfg files or file management for MP3 players. I would not recommend the GPD Win 2 if it's still $800 or something nuts like that.
>>60 It's not eve 'cool'. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DragonBox_Pyra Sort of thing should have taken off.
(181.59 KB 1600x900 handheld-comparison.jpg)
>Dragonbox Pyra That's basically a portable raspberry pi zero that costs ~$800. The CPU is 5+ years old at this point. It never got popular because it's a hobby project, and between the original and the pyra there were multiple consecutive years where you couldn't actually buy one, just put down a $100+ plus preorder for a device with no guaranteed shipping date. It looks like they finally started shipping *something* at least in December 2019, 3-4 years since the product started. GPD managed to go from concept to mass, widely available production for at least 4 competitive products in that timescale. My autism appreciates the fully-open-source, hobbyist nature, but as a consumer product it misses the mark by a wide margin. If that guy ever decides to produce a cheap, cut-down version at $300 I'll consider it. I understand why it's priced as it is, but $800 is too much for what is essentially a toy.>>460

Old, Mediocre Games Are Better than Modern Games Anonymous 02/11/2020 (Tue) 04:48:32 No. 448 [Reply] [Last]
2007 - Conan comes out. It's a cheap God of War rip off and feels middling as hell. It looks like they forgot to add textures to the game. I drop it after 30 minutes out of disgust. 2020 - Gaming has become so awful I've gone back to Conan. At least they tried to copy a combat engine that isn't utter ass like a Demon's Souls clone. I don't even care that the game looks like ass. It plays better than most action games I've played in the past 8 years. Have you gone back to any games you didn't care for and then suddenly realized that they weren't so bad, now that we're in CY+6?
>>448 There's a bunch of N64 and PS2 games that are just kinda fun but tedious platformer/collectathons but I've started to play them since they're still 100% times better than anything else that comes out these days. I've been having fun with Crash Bandicoot: Wrath of Cortex.
>>449 Any thoughts on how the Crash Remastered Trilogy is? I never got into them on the PS1, but a lot of people seem to really love them.
(241.84 KB 563x320 bugmanRemake.png)
>Crash remastered I took a quick look at it, think I pirated the Switch version or a xb1 demo or something - I remember not being very impressed. I got some weird furry nu-male vibes instead of the SOUL of the original games. IIRC the remasters run at 30 FPS - that was an acceptable framerate in 1997 but it's complete fucking garbage for a platformer in ~2020, especially one that's supposedly """"""HD""""""". I think you're better off just playing the originals. I'm currently set up to play PS1 and PS2 games on original hardware on CRT, but PS1 games emulate pretty well. I use the first level of Crash 1 as my controller+input lag test, if I can get 100% boxes on the first run I know the setup is good, if I fuck up the box jumping over the chasm then I know my setup has too much lag or a controller problem. (I get 100% every time on real hardware -> CRT) So yeah I'd get the remaster for free or cheap, but I wouldn't pay money for it. If you want to go full autism just use a gaming pc and the OpenGL hacks to render at 960p etc
>>454 > I think you're better off just playing the originals. One of these days, I'll put in the effort to set up RetroArch and figure out how to OC the PS1 core to soup up the frame rate for those older PS1 titles. The PS1 Armored Cores at 60 fps might just wreck my life replaying them again. >If you want to go full autism just use a gaming pc and the OpenGL hacks to render at 960p etc kek, hadn't even gotten this far and we agree on the proper course of action! Thanks for the insight on the remake.
