I don't get how LJN became a punchline when Gametek was clearly the worst NES publisher.

>> No.10867918

Nigel Mansel World Championship could have been good. It's a realistic simulation F1 title on NES at a time when everyone else was doing arcade design.

However the AI has the worst case of rubberband I've ever seen. When you're in first position the second car is always RIGHT on your tail no matter what you do and the first tiny mistake he passed you over. It's very frustrating.

>> No.10867924

probably because LJN stuff actually proported to be real games people would want to play while nobody considered anything Gametek shat out to be a "game."

Is there any real strategy to the combat in this game or it's just button mashing?

>> No.10867647

Combat? A bit there's a few moves that Turner has that will make some encounters go much smoother like using Roadkill on females.
The real strategy of the game is to treat each panel like a puzzle.

>> No.10867678

I button mashed my way through this game as a kid and recently I've learned that there are various button combinations that make Sketch do moves I've literally never seen before despite the fact that I'd been playing the game over and over again back in the days

>> No.10867691

I usually mix up high/low/mid attacks very quickly to get around enemies blocking. Doing so acts like a cancel, so you can attack much faster.
You can grab and throw some enemies, at least one panel requires this to blow up a power hammer blocking the door.
Grabbing the green monsters turns them into other enemies.
Button combos deal a lot of damage (down up punch for scissors kick, up down punch for shaolin kick) but are slow. Strigils will always dodge the shaolin kick, but I think Styx will always get hit by it on wakeup.
Roadkill can combat by zapping enemies, the females are afraid of rats and will die instantly. However, enemies can hit Roadkill, and he can die easily. He respawns some panels later.
For the little metallic facehuggers, you can only hit them with stronger attacks by juggling them high enough.

that's all I remember.

I miss when pokemon was about taming wild animals, it makes the concept of being an adventurer cataloguing new species for a scientist much more believable. At some point (probably around gen 3) pokemon definitely stopped being wild animals and became just magical creatures.

I acknowledge that this game is crap and significantly worse than its predecessor but I still enjoy it anyway.
There's something about the physics and gameplay flow that simply no other Sonic game managed to replicate. It almost has an arcade-ish feel to it with the same degree of replayability as Doom.

I'm an avid pinball player and you're pretty off the mark with that idea. The point of the special stages is to be trial and error, because your chances for the later ones grow thinner and harder to find, the further in you get, until the last few levels don't even have them. Pinball by its nature can just throw your ball down the drain, if the flippers are too far apart (see the bullshit behind Fish Tales as a prime example), and as the chances grow thinner further in, you want to be able to build off of whatever parts were successful in a previous attempt at the later special stages.

I wouldn't call them masterful or ingenious game design, but functionally they at least make complete sense. Imo Mania strikes the best balance by having at least 3 laps usually, with the first two being at really manageable speeds so you know what's coming, and in turn theoretically have a way higher chance of passing on your first try.

Also there's pinball bonus stages in Spinball, and desu they're pretty fun, so I get where you're coming from

the only problem with blue spheres is it makes you pick up every ring. You should just get them when you transform a block of spheres.

>> No.10867387

This mini game seperates the players who actually have fast reflexes, and the ones who play through Sonic games by bruteforcing their way through with the ring system and learning everything by heart.

The later get destroyed by this mini game.

I picked up this game last week. I tried to enjoy it. I tried to see the pros and cons, but honestly, after a while of trying, I dropped it. To be frank, I don't get the appeal. It doesn't feel like a worthy successor to Mother 2 at all; the charm is notably lacking and the humor feels forced. I wouldn't have minded so much had it not also been busy trying to be dramatic and "2deep4u", which is where my main gripe with the game begins. The times when it tries to be serious feels so out of place and unnatural, like a fanfiction written by somebody who misunderstood the appeal of the original source. It's not "Mother" at all. As far as I'm concerned, it's just a poor mimicry of the much more superior Earthbound 64 that we're never going to get.

Honestly, I should've just stuck with Earthbound.

hey /vr/, most of you are going to lose your marbles at this post and tell me to sudoku, but I still need some advice
I've got a bit of a conflicting situation here.

I recovered my old CRT from my grandmas place, and now I'm frustrated on not being able to find a simple all-in-one solution regarding playing old games.

I love those mini consoles, and I've got a SNES mini, a genesis mini, and a PS Classic. I'm a gimmicky fuck. I would love to acquire any possible advice on how to connect that to an old Trinitron that is SCART capable, or at least composite. From what I understand, it's very, very difficult to achieve HDMI->SCART lag free.

On the other hand, I've got an actual saturn and an actual ps2 coming, plus a fenrir duo, which I'm planning to buy some SCART cables for. If the minis setup is too impractical/too fucked lag-wise, would it just be better to play the ps1 roms on a ps2?
If so, what's the best modding solution for playing ps1 games on a ps2 in 2024? Would be ideal if cheats were kept in mind.

Lastly - I have no solution for n64 games yet. That's where I'm considering purchasing a Wii U, because from what I UNDERSTAND, it's capable of running SCART "natively". Do correct me if I'm wrong, and if I need to reasses some things.

Thank you kindly for the advice - any is appreciated.

>> No.10867086

Getting a mini console to work on CRTs isn't worth it. You'd need a 720p -> 240p downscaler, and that's a whole rabbithole innit of itself. The best all in one solution for <=gen 5 is MISTer.

Holy shit man, that's like what, 10 hours into the game if you're taking your time?

I just started playing the game last month or so and each of those sections took like 1-3 play sessions at most to get through. Are you playing this for 5 minutes at a time on the phone while on the bus or some shit?
