Comfy snow/winter games Anonymous 11/13/2019 (Wed) 17:49:22 No. 342 [Reply]
Looking for some games with this feel, setting or theme being related to winter or cold snowy settings preferably urban.
Off the top of my head I can think of Frostpunk, Modded STALKER and some levels in the Metro games. A couple that come close are Cryostasis: Sleep of Reason and The Long Dark. The reason that I only say these come close is that Cryostasis isn't as comfy as the three listed and The Long Dark is set in a very rural area and does not invoke the same feelings as come from the image.

For me, one of them is SSX 3. I like the music selection, the feeling of pulling off sick combos, and the overall winter/snow feel.
>>picture interpreted as winter + future + urban

>Snatcher - Sega CD
Snatcher is an extremely great winter time game. The game itself is set in a city in winter and there are several parts involving snow. Highly recommended for the vibe you're going for.
I think Silent Hill - PS1, but it's 2scary4me
>Snowboard Kids - N64/PS1
>1080 Snowboarding - N64
>Skifree - WIN95, this one is a classic but a little too frantic to be comfy. v nostalgic though
PS1 had a bunch of snowboarding games, if you find clunky 90s x-treme stuff to be "comfy". Doesn't count as "urban" per your definition tho. Also at least one snowmobile racing game I think. I think a lot of survival horror games might be set in winter, and PS1 has a lot of those.

Lots of games have a couple winter-themed levels but very few games are exclusively so, it's kind of interesting. It's much more common for games to have the opposite (summer) theme.
Diddy Kong Racing - N64 has a cozy ice world with 4 levels.
Mario 64 has at least one good ice level.
Majora's Mask has a good snow town.
Metal Gear Solid - PS1 starts out in the snow.
FFVI - SNES starts out with some snow city stuff.

Gameboy Thread Anonymous 10/06/2019 (Sun) 02:27:47 No. 94 [Reply]
This thread is for discussion of Nintendo Gameboy hardware released between 1989 and 2003, as well as games and accessories released during that time.

How are you guys doing? Enjoying the new backlit screen mods?

Quality thread, have you by chance looked into any of the recent chink emulator devices for playing GB? They look like they can run everything in the library 100% with the better screen+battery, or are you a diehard must be original hardware kind of person?
I'm familiar with and own most of the devices on obscurehandhelds.com and dingoonity, if that's what you're asking. They are quite interesting, but target different markets IMO so they're not 1-1 replacements. They give you an 80% experience across 7 different platforms, whereas original hardware w/ screen and battery upgrades give you 1-3 platforms at 100% fidelity.
The "RS-90" is the closest in terms of GB/GBA emulation, as it has an authentic GBA micro screen with 240x160 native resolution. Unfortunately the backlit TN panel, while impressive for its time, does not stand up to modern IPS panels. The devices on the market that do ship with IPS all have 320x240 resolution (or 320x480 half-height pixels, which amounts to the same thing), so you have to choose between a tiny image with borders on all sides or a blurry non-integer stretch.
Since I've set up my backlit GB, GBC, and GBA a few months ago, I haven't touched any of said emulation consoles. The fully upgraded original hardware ends up quite a bit more expensive ($200-$300 all in for console + screen + li-ion battery + flash cart) as compared to a $30 bittboy or rs-90, so they're essentially different markets. If you want the console to feel and look pixel-perfect, there's no replacement for the original hardware.

I set up my big CRT again a few days ago so I'm currently messing around with the Super Gameboy. In many ways it's the 1994 version of the nintendo switch - play on your big tv, then take the game with you.
Currently checking out the various games that have special palettes for the Super Gameboy, like Donkey Kong 1994. Interestingly enough DK94 also has an extra sound sample added, Peach's cries for "help, help" use an actual sample instead of just PSG. It's cool at first and gets annoying after a few levels. The one thing that's lame is you can't actually play Gameboy Color games on it, which I'd forgotten, but makes sense based on the release dates (1994 vs 1998). Thinking about doing the crystal swap to get the exact frequency, and idly daydreaming about looking into the crystal toggleable overclock method, or looking into swapping in the guts of a GBC. not sure it's possible though

still working my way through Another Bible. it's a nice bedtime game. also got to world 4 in SMB3 on the GBA. It's nice and responsive (better than any non-runahead emulator), but the squished viewport is kind of gay. I had at least one death that was directly attributable to the short screen. oh well. Also played a bit of pokemon red on my Pocket Sprite while poo-ing. pretty good. early game, training up a male and female nidoran pair and trying to catch a pikachu right now. I went with charmander starter so I need something good to face that chode brock.
Why would anyone play a shitty console of yesteryear when we have PC? Nah, pass.

RG350 Purchase Anonymous 10/15/2019 (Tue) 19:08:15 No. 227 [Reply]
How did I do boys, bought it for retro SNES, was it a good purchase?
OP here again, mostly for Earthbound/Yoshi's Island
(158.04 KB 1000x495 miyoo_2019aa.jpg)
nice. be sure to update us when you get it.
I'm holding out for the Pocket Go 2 (The same JZ4770CPU + screen with dpad and stick swapped). Maybe the GK350H, if they end up releasing kernel source. I have the RG-300 which is similar with a weaker cpu.
>Earthbound + other RPGS + slow games
- should play perfectly
>Platformers without special chips
- should play great, with a frame or two of extra input lag (basically every emulation on lcd is going to do this, only solutions are retroarch + desktop-class cpu for 2-3 frames of runahead, or real hardware + crt). Emulation is still great for the slower castlevania-speed platformers including Super Metroid, it's really just SMW-romhack-tier hard and fast games where you feel it.
>Yoshi's Island and other special chip games - these are harder to emulate than the usual SNES games.
My RG-300 only hits about 38-45 fps on the title screen if I turn frameskip off. You can make it playable by playing the PAL version with auto-frameskip, but it's not perfect. It will depend on just how much better the JZ4770 + optimized emulators for it on are compared to the JZ4760 + emulators on the current RG-300 and RS-97.
I saw ETA Primes recent video reviewing the RG350 recently and it looked like Yoshi's Island ran fullspeed, here's a link if you're interested.

Some Good 360 Games? Anonymous 09/20/2019 (Fri) 04:37:52 No. 20 [Reply]
All I have right now is an Xbox 360. I have the following games and will rate them according to how much I've enjoyed them

Batman Arkham Asylum - 7/10
Dark Souls II - 4/10
Deux Ex: Human Revolution - 7/10
Devil May Cry 4 - 6/10
Diablo III - 3/10
Elder Scrolls IV - Oblivion - 2/10
Elder Scrolls V - Skyrim - 6/10
Fable II - 7/10
Fallout 3 - 6/10
Final Fantasy XIII - 8/10
Halo Wars - 6/10
MGSV - Ground Zeroes - 5/10
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed - 5/10

Yeah, yeah, I know, I'm going to come off as a total pleb, but almost NONE of these games are fun. THEY SUCK. THEY SUCK SO FUCKING HARD. I groan when I look at my abysmal selections. The most fun I had was with FF13, but there's nothing left for me to do except grind out my weapons/accessories. Diablo makes me want to slam my head against the wall until I die, it is such a miserable boring piece of shit.

Dragonball Xenoverse is pretty solid. It's a fighting game but it's surprisingly laid back. Like you don't have to be sweating and sitting on the edge of your seat to do decent and have fun. Though the sequel is FAR better than the first and you won't miss much story wise so I highly suggest skipping straight to it. It has decent rpg elements too.
Go pick up a copy of Blue Dragon and have some fun. It's like a hybrid of FF3 and Dragon Warrior.
>Playing Dragon Age: Origins on X-Box 360
Kill yourself. If you're going to play DAO you want PC if only to install the fanpatch mods that fix a couple hundred broken quests, make combat skills function properly, and restore broken dialogues and missing cutscenes that are in the game but don't activate for some daft reason or another. If you play DAO, you want mods.

Thoughts on the new GG? Honestly it looks way better than Xrd and I'm really excited.
Never played a GG game but they do look stylish
It looks way worse than #Reload or AC+, tho

on 8chan's /vr/ board, there was a thread for archiving old ROM's. They posted NES and Genesis packs but I never checked back to see if SNES pack was posted before 8 got nuked. Did anyone save the SNES pack?
If you want roms check out this anon: https://the-eye.eu/public/rom/

They don't have everything but they have a ton.

>where to get roms
way back in the 56k / slow DSL days, I used to download individual titles from emuparadise. obviously that's gone down now. I got most of my fullsets over the past several years from archive.org and rutracker.
archive org is sort of a whack a mole game, as people will upload fullsets but they will get DCMAd, then another person will post etc. It's pretty great for old cartridge games, anything GBA or older you'll almost certainly find a fullset on there.
rutracker is pretty great for newer systems and disc-based sets. I got my PSX and Mega-CD fullsets from there within the past year. just search for "$systemname set", and there's lots of content.
The eye is pretty good for grabbing single roms here and there. I think you can script up a scraper with wget, but their collections aren't complete so it's not really worth it.
I've also used Vimm's lair and Edgeemulation for some stuff recently.
The hardest part about the fullsets is getting ~thousands of files unzipped and sorted them in some way that makes sense, is easily searchable, and doesn't have too many files in any one folder (some flashcarts have limitations on files per folder and don't accept zipped roms).
a quick DDG for "snes fullset archive org" ->
The "no intro" sets are a great place to start, as they don't have too many duplicates and have all the officially released games without much bullshit. The "goodset"s are great if you're looking for a more expansive collection that also includes romhacks, weird homebrews, and that sort of thing.
