Anyone just cycle through these old games?

By the time you've played a few it's been months the urge to come back and replay the first comes right back around?

Doom 1+2 -> Duke 3D/SW/Blood/IF -> Quake/2 -> Half Life -> Turok 1/2 -> Heretic/Hexen -> etc etc Repeat

I barely play new games anymore I just cycle old games. And by the time you come back around to play other stuff there's new map packs and mods

If you plan to play games from your PC with a direct connection be ready for a lot of fucking around in settings. It uses SMB 1.0 which windows is trying to kill off.

Also if you use OPL manager make sure you rename your ps2 isos after getting the art for them to remove the "SLUS.xxx" if you want to add them to your hard drive. Otherwise they will not sort alphabetically.

>> No.8377963

According to Wikipedia it was supposed to be a Sega System 18 game. That arcade board was an improved version of the famous Sega System 16 board, which itself was the inspiration for Mega Drive. I guess that the port is possible but it would suffer from inferior hardware. Sega CD could probably serve as a better target platform.

>> No.8377973

I think the arcade system combines a genesis VDP with another entire additional VDP (which might be a system-16 one), so that's way more sprites and layers than the genesis could do on its own. not much point really.

>Use your PC for emulation

>> No.8377742

The virtual console games work great, the actual emulator for n64 is terrible. The wii is great for playing anything 4th gen and back at 240p, that's all it's good at

>> No.8377745

The wii has always been a good system for emulation. N64 emulation isn't so good but you've got all the virtual console titles available that run well, and Yoshi's Island was on virtual console. But it's great for emulating 3rd and 4th gen, I think PSX can be emulated although I don't think copy protection shit is bypassed yet. Then of course you can play GameCube and wii games natively on the system with just isos.

I personally use it the most for PC Engine, Gameboy, and Wonderswan, since these days I mostly just use flash carts on my real systems. The wii is nice to play for niche systems like the Wonderswan that I don't own. On a small CRT the gameboy emulation looks gorgeous.

As a kid I used to just play the early part of a game, quit when I got to a part that took me more than a few tries, and generally avoid things I found too challenging. Mostly it worked out because I was gifted in school and that's all adults cared about.

But now I want to go back and beat the kinds of games that I gave up on when I was a kid, as a first step toward being more willing to challenge myself in general. The problem is, when I struggle with a part for long I tend to beat myself up. How do I stop doing that?

>> No.8378441

Compartmentalize problems. If you spend your time focusing on the end goal of beating the game you end up making more mistakes trying to force your way to the end. If you learned at least one new thing each attempt you haven't failed. Sometimes it's how to deal with a tricky enemy placement or how to avoid taking damage more consistently. If a section tends to be really long, I try to break down the earlier parts into repeatable actions that I know work every time. Mega man is a great example; if jumping in one spot makes the enemy behave in a way that is predictable then you should keep doing it. It's all practice and execution. Once you get used to that loop it can be addicting, it almost begins to feel like a puzzle to be solved.

>> No.8378450

Thanks for the tip. I'll make sure to keep that in mind next time. It's been awhile since I've played megaman 2, but my first playthrough was on the atrocious iOS port, and I remember heat man took longer to beat than the other bosses.

Animal Antics on DKC2 was the hardest, hands down.

>> No.8377632

I played 3, as another poster said, it's fine. It's a competent DKC game, a mild sequel to 2 of the most legendary games of all time.

I think it has the easiest levels of the three overall. That's not to say it doesn't have moments of difficulty, but it doesn't have as many of "those" levels, you know, the ones that eat away your extra lives and laughs in your face.

If you haven't played it, try it out. The overworld is the most interactive and interesting of the trilogy, and (hot take incoming) the graphics look the best of the trilogy, only downside is that the music is so-so; I guess they couldn't get David wise to come back to make the OST . You'll be very whelmed, but not disappointed, you'll have fun.

And yeah I also agree it's the coziest of the three.

Overall though, I find DKC2 to be the most fair of the three. it's still difficult, but the hard parts don't feel like asshole level design like in DKC1.
