All of them with a few exceptions from the mid and late 90s, you just have to learn how to make them run - but for now just use the pre-packed versions from GOG and learn how they work.

God forbid you have to use your brain and a little bit of memory to navigate a complex 3D space. The iron boots nonsense is mildly annoying though. The 3DS version fixes that anyway. This and the Forest Temple are the best dungeons in the game.

This was the best console generation. Everybody likes to bicker about which console was the best, but they were all the best. The PS1 had sheer quantity and variety, the N64 had a compact library of quality exclusives and good multiplayer games, and the Saturn brought the arcade experience home. 5th gen was the transition period between old and new, it was the best of both worlds: tons of classic-styled games and new, funky, experimental games of all kinds. Whether you want traditional sidescrollers and platformers or 3D first person shooters and sprawling JRPGs, this gen had it all. The previous gen was severely limited by 2D and the following generation was when the industry started to go down hill. We will never have it this good again.

How old does a game have to be to be considered retro? Some of my favorite games were made over ten years ago but I wouldn't think of them as "retro" games. Is it an aesthetic or style? Or maybe a particular design philosophy, which old controls (tank controls, for example).

The rules need to be updated to include 6th gen. There's no excuse for not being able to talk about near 2 decade old hardware.

The "retro" era is the pre-HD / CRT TV era.


So anything up through 6th gen should be allowed.

Absolutely. I was obsessed with the character when I was a kid. He was a cute little dinosaur friend with a super chill look in his eyes every time you saw him. Yoshi's Island was fantastic too.

Then came Yoshi's Story.

Now Yoshi's nose was a perfect 3D sphere on his face, his saddle became a weird tiny turtle shell thing, his dorsal spines along the back of his neck became three little round bumps on the back of his head, his cute little dinosaur arms became massive human hands with oposable thumbs, And now he basically has no tail.

And then the fucking voice... I'll never understand why Yoshi had to become a fucking pokemon.

Modern Yoshi sucks balls. I miss my dino bro. What sucks is when they create new 2D artwork of Yoshi it almost looks half way decent, even if it does still have some of modern Yoshi's garbage design choices, but in 3D, he looks horrible.

So... i want to make my own high quality S-Video cable for Snes, Gamecube and N64 since ive bought two of those cables on Ebay and both have that checkered pattern so they are garbage.

I got a few OEM cables i could mod, and also i found a nice S-Video cable that came with one of my old videocards.

So, i would need to open the multiout conenctor, desolder the yellow cable, then solder all 4 cables on the S-Video cable to the pins inside the connetor and seal it back.

Question is... anyone knows the pinout of the connector? S-Video has 2 grounds, Luma and Chroma, so its a total of 4 wires but i dont know where to solder.

>> No.4658586

I've been thinking about doing this sort of thing for a while now. thanks for the photo.
I assume you need to hack together multiple cords to get all the pins necessary. S-video has 4 pins. RGB has what, 8 total conductors? so then two cords would be enough. The plugs will be the wrong colors if they're left on

>modding the OEM component cables trying to get the A/V connector for an s-video cable
>doing soldering work inside the SNES
>instead of just taking the A/V connector off of one of the shit s-video cables, since it already HAS THE RIGHT PINS
OP, what in the flying fuck are you doing? Put the soldering iron down NOW. Rethink your plan. Take the red and white plugs and the A/V connector from the shit cable, re-wire with properly shielded wires and your good S-video cable.

I think it's pretty telling that almost every Square property is either dead or changed for the worst nowadays, whereas the one thing that the company still puts out that is reliably great is Dragon Quest.

The Enix side catalogue was hit far harder. Only Star Ocean and poor ports of Valkyrie Profile games remain. No more publishing for smaller developers. One telling detail is how Enix wanted Fullmetal Alchemist PS2 to be the start of a new series of quality licensed games and not only those long-term plans got the grinder, but the game itself barely saw release.

Dragon Quest was and still is a joint operation between many studios and parties, and is a cash cow these parties are overprotective of, not unlike Pokemon.
Valkyrie Profile (Enix) and Front Mission/Parasite Eve (Squaresoft) are also not a single developer, but after the merger Squeenix shat the bed with all of those relationships leading to dead series and spiritual successors left and right.

And no one of you all heartless faggots remember Taito, which Square Enix absorbed and wasted its proprieties completely. Their very first act was to cancel the license for a Pocky and Rocky game by a third party developer (granted, Taito was whoring it to the likes of Altron for the GBA game), but then even series like Bubble Bobble and Bust a Move are wasted, and they didn't even deign bringing out that Lufia 2 reimagining as a budget action RPG outside Japan by themselves. Then they were never heard of again aside from smartphone shovelware.

It's not Wada either, it's a whole corporate mindset.

The tie-in was supposed to be the best part, but it awfully implemented.

It could make "make your own alternative reality. Yeah, shit happens in Chrono Cross, but here you decide your fate". Instead it was "yep, there's nothing you can do, you lose this battle and eventually you and all your friends get murdered."

Honestly, the only one that I really enjoyed was FF2's. I don't know what more you can ask for, it relies on the underused phrase mechanic, the dungeons aren't only endgame accessible, the dungeons are varied with the occasional puzzle or gimmick, the mystery behind the dungeons was interesting and the rewards from the dungeons were great.

I did dislike how you had to repeat the dungeons multiple times to get the weapons though.

I can't speak for FF1 since I've never played it, but I really hope it has similar endgame content. The other games all have mediocre bonus dungeons only accessible once you beat the game and they all involve doing the same shit again (outside of 4) for ultimately useless overpowered rewards as you've already beaten the game. It feels lazy and literally tacked on at the end.
