Roadwar 2000 is also interesting, even though it's more of a strategy game. The Apple IIGS, Atari ST, and Amiga versions are quite a bit nicer-looking than the DOS one, if that matters to you (in fact, even the C64 port looks better!)

It's not an RPG, but if you haven't played the first jak&daxter then I strongly recommend it (PCSX2 worked for me), just don't bother 100%ing it. Hopefully it may bring you some joy. I only played it lately, so no chance this is a nostalgia-goggles recommendation, it's genuinely fun.

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

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)

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.

Banned forever from SWTOR Anonymous 01/04/2020 (Sat) 14:10:35 No. 420 [Reply] [Last]
Well I started a guild in SWTOR called "Holocaust Never Happened" and EA Bioware finally banned me after like 5 days. Here's the screen shot of the guild reaching number 1 on the leaderboards, and the email EA sent me telling me I was banned.

>>420 BTW. Managed to recover my account with CD key, account had 50merc (previous launch cap), 45PT, few mid lvl alts, but the FTP model was so shit Shame as far as MMO's go that was one of the better WoW clones that had potential. All they had to do was add a little more ARPG, tweak a few animations a bit (running, jumping etc) to make it not so clunky, use a skins only cash shop and to not be so kiked with gameplay aspects like loot, lvl'ing, bank and professions. Tried new toon that night to refamiliarize self with basics, was shocked when made it to first encounter and game gave undeserved epic loot that only could be equipped with a sub.
>>421 i deleted bitchute, their video quality sucks
>>423 WEBM 101
>>422 yes, they could have made SWTOR the best but Bioware simply didn't give a fuck. They also locked unnecessary shit behind a pay-sub which further pissed off people. Bioware didn't update their fucking game for 3 years, people were saying the game was about to shut down. I believe it will within a year or so.
fuck EA
