Can we have this thread without fanboy shit?
Even though snes have way better specs, i will say that what makes a console great, is the games it has.
With that in mind, how could anyone favor the genesis when snes have:
>super metroid
>super mario rpg
>super mario world
>super mario kart
>chrono trigger
>secret of mana
>final fantasy
>donkey kong trilogy
>megaman x trilogy
>final fight
>turtles in time
>demons crest
>killer instinct
>and the list goes on and on...

now the genesis?
>quack shot
>Mortal Kombat 1 with blood
and thats that.

>> No.5390282

>Can we have this thread without fanboy shit?

I'd like to make this thread about the development of old videogames. You can post retro interviews, technical articles, etc. It shouldn't spin around romhacks, or mods, or eggs, but everything around the original development of videogames.

Let's get started with Carmack writting on designing the networking side of QuakeWorld with low latency in mind

Does anybody know whether during the 4th and 5th generation PAL releases of Japanese games were translated using the American versions as a base of the Japanese original? I have a feeling they translated from the English translation which would suck ass

>> No.5389745

Some publishers didn't use the US version as a base. For example (not retro), the PS2 has a lot of PAL games that were never released in the US, and were localized directly from the japanese versions.

>> No.5389749

Most of the time they were based on the NTSC translation with a few exceptions. I know Ape Escape 3 received a brand new translation.

>> No.5389758

Yeah I thought so. Guess I'm always going to use the NTSC version for every localized game

You can make the light very dim, anon, the problem with the original GBA was people tilting it around everywhere trying to see.

You only need a bright light when you are sitting in a place where you are in the glare of sunlight at a bad angle. They could just make the light not serviceable in that situation and people would have still been okay with it.

>> No.5389917


This is true. I have no idea why there are people on this board that insist that GBC is a separate platform. The New 3DS can do things the original 3DS can't, including playing SNES games, and nobody considers that a separate platform.

>> No.5389931

THIS, I've never considered it a separate product, it felt more like a stopgap revision while people waited for the GBA.

It was also kind of bad, the screen was crap, and most of the games were shovelware.

>> No.5390102

>It was also kind of bad, the screen was crap
how so? It has no screen ghosting/motion blur like OG or pocket has. It wasn't front/back lit but so wasn't gba until many years later. I guess its smaller than pockets screen but the size never bothered me(then again I've never had pocket).

My only complain is the plastic cover, when it gets even slightly scratched you cant see shit through it, and if you take it off(or replace it with modern glass replacement) its clear and you can see it no problem even without any kind of light mod or wormlight(assuming you aren't sitting in complete darkness or in very dim room).

Gunstar Heroes, Silhouette Mirage (saturn), Silvergun, Ikaruga, Bangai-o are all fantastic.
Worst is probably dragon dive i guess.
It's shit as usual. It's missing half the graphics, censored, rubbish translation, really bad voice acting, slowdown everywhere and they butchered the gameplay and changed all the difficulty parameters.

>> No.5389878

Romancing Saga 2 has barely any empire building or base management. You can fund like 4 buildings and some weapons armor and magic. It’s not in depth or anywhere close to the customization you would see in a PC game.

With that said RS2 is a phenomenal game that you should play as soon as possible. It’s basically what a SNES era JRPG would look like through the lens of a CRPG.

>> No.5390018

The empire building part is just about funding specific constructions and building new arms as you grind for more revenue by killing the shit out of every monster encounter you're in.

The fun part about being the emperor is the quests. Each few times you complete a quest, you get to skip a generation or two to see your empire and anything you're previously involved in develop, for better or worse. And you can influence these quests in different ways, and see the results you would never really expect. sometimes it also means your empire has expanded to that area as well.

It's kinda Kawazu's way of making an Ultima game without bearing the Ultima name and putting a slice of squaresoft in it.

Guys, sorry to bother, but could you please elucidate me on this arcade game I once played as a child?
It was a pretty wild bike racing game. There was the usual bike men dressed in bike racing outfits, but then you could choose and old timey fellow with those old big wheels bycicle, a band(?) of elvis impersonators, a recently married couple with a sidecar and a bunch of cans tied to it. I think the graphics were mostly 2D sprites instead of polygons, but I could be wrong on that.
I was able to find the name of most of the arcade games I used to play as a kid but I can't find that one at all.
