Hi /vr/, I am playing through the X series and I want to see all the bosses, so it's kind of confusing in some games where there are alternate/optional bosses. I don't think X1 had any but in X2 you can either fight the the X-Hunters in their basic forms or you can fight Zero. And then in X3 it seems you can fight Bit, Byte, and Vile in the middle of maverick levels, but if you beat them with their weaknesses you fight different bosses later. So what alternate bosses are there in the rest of the games?

>> No.4197456

X2 - if you fight and defeat all three X-Hunters, you won't fight Zero. If you fail to defeat at least one, you have to fight Zero.
X5 - if you launch the shuttle or fire the laser early, you don't need to fight all the bosses
X6 - if you defeat Nightmare Zero, you can skip almost all of the bosses and just go to the final stage

>> No.4197460

On X6, if you go past a certain ammount of Nightmare Souls (starting at 5000), bosses get stronger

>> No.4197491

>Actually playing X6
I marathon'd the franchise and stopped at X5 cause it was bad and heard X6 is even worse

Do you feel obligated to play "the classics"?

It seems weird to me when some says they enjoy games but has never played something like SMB. There are just some games out there that any fan of the medium should play at least once.

Post "classic" series you never played any games from.

I've never played any Tomb Raider, Quake, Crash, Spyro, or Fire Emblem. I only got around to playing Doom a year ago.

I was born in 84 so the classics were all I had as a kid. I can't name a single popular series I haven't at least tried, even sports titles.

You need to get on Quake. And make sure that it has the original music playing, too. It's a creepy as fuck, gothic game to begin with, but with Trent Reznor's music playing in the background, it takes it up about 9 notches.

Building my first MAME cabinet. I scored a Golden Tee '99 cab from a local thrift store for only $25! It didn't work, that's why they let it go so cheap. Got it home, plugged it in, nothing. Luckily it had the keys with it, opened the back, and the plug was disconnected from the power supply. Plugged that back in and it worked!

Digging around in the cab, which was just plain black, I saw that it started life as a Killer Instinct. Was stoked, but alas, all that artwork was destroyed when whomever in the past converted it to the GT'99.

Decided to try to strip the paint off, and lo and behold, the original artwork was intact! Ordered a new OE marquee and CPO, some Happ controls, etc. Making big progress on it, I should be up and running in just a few more weeks. I got a JAMMA to USB interface and an ArcadeVGA to drive the W-G monitor.

>> No.4197074

>> No.4197090

It works but sometimes it can take over a minute to flash a new rom while the sd2snes is always very fast. This and the sd2snes has just slightly higher compatibility

>> No.4197179

It's an exact clone of an older version of the Super Everdrive which is a different product from SD2SNES. It only has a slight difference in a few components that make it incompatible with newer versions of the Super ED firmware so don't try to upgrade one.

>> No.4197191

It works. You'll want to get a Class 10 card for it though, because sometimes it can be sssslllllooooowwww to load with any other type of card. Even with the Class 10, it still can often suck. I got a Sandisk Ultra 8GB, and that definitely helped over a standard SD card.

Now that Mania is finally out and the dust is settling fast, I think that we can finally declare Sonic 1 as the undisputed best entry in the series, the patrician's choice.
Sonic 2, 3, S&K, CD (yes, fuck you plebs who don't understand tansaku-platforming gameplay) are all great, classic games. And Mania is, well, it's what Classic fans wanted, it's exactly that. I don't mean it to be a derogative, but it is a glorified ROMhack. A beautiful, top-tier ROMhack, the best ever.
But man, Sonic 1... it's still the perfect game.

And that's bad why? Yeah it kinda sucked like half of Mania were just redone stages but the game is really good besides that. I just hope if they make a sequel it's nothing but new stages so I can finally get the Sonic sequel I've wanted since I was like 9.

CD is not the same kind of game as Metroid and SOTN, and you're retarded for thinking it is.

Why does it sound like you all somehow played this game but were ready to review it the whole time you did -- no wonder it sucked for you you goddamn peasants

if you just went with the flow and excepted everything as it happened and suspended your own reality -- FF8 is incredibly interesting and has a LOT of character

Being able to break the junction system at the beginning is a plus for the game because then you can give yourself the luxury of paying attention to every little thing everyone says
