I recently bought a Model 1 Mega Drive in Japan as well as a Flashcart. What are some /vr/ approved titles I might not have played for it?

Also, is it true Model 1 has superior audio from the headphone jack and I should plug that into my speaker setup instead of the regular RCA?

Sonic Adventure 2 was kino. Sonic's swan song.

A lot of Shadow's lyrics had to do with how conflicted he feels. Even in his theme, "Throw It All Away", it comments on how, even if he is immortal, it doesn't matter and he would rather throw it all away because the life itself is meaningless.

In Rhythm and Balance, the White Jungle stage where you have to save Rouge before the island explodes, the song asks over and over if Shadow is scared, once again that if he fails, he will lose yet another person close to him.

In the Supernatural, Final Chase's stage, the song starts asking if Shadow is even the Ultimate Lifeform to begin with as he gets closer to Maria's "dream."

The Biolizard of course, is unironically what I'd call Shadow's swan song. "Supporting Me" sounds just like the title, Shadow has finally given up revenge and learned that he wants to protect the world but he doesn't really know how to do this. He will do everything in his power, knowing that Maria is supporting him in order to fulfill her last wish, even if it means his untimely end, which the song references at the end of the song as well.

And of course, Live and Learn. Pretty explanatory, but it's learning to live with your mistakes and to keep moving in life even if all seems lost.

Shadow's story was unironically a great lead up from a broken individual lead on by hatred to one of redemption, giving his life to the ones he tried to destroy in the first place. We really won't have kino like this again, but at least its here.

I mean, when you say it that way it might sound dumb, but I can do that for any IP people might be passionate about, the truth is we have many interests and hobbies, and IPs we like, an IP can be about childish or silly things superficially for sure, but that doesn't stop it from dealing with mature themes and/or simply being appealing, which Sonic is to many, I just can't see the issue.

I see people be passionate about Nintendo, or other forms of media outside of video games, I mean mostly manga and comic books, but really anything goes, and it's fine, it's not just autism.

So how do rare items work anyway and what makes a "good" rare item good?

I've kind of always ignored rares in favour of sets and uniques because I can't really identify one well enough to tell if they're worth it or not.

14 replies omitted. Click Reply to view.
>> No.10971285

So, at some point, you're going to develop an idea of what stats are good, and what you'd look for on a magic item. For example, people used to look really hard for Cruel Colossus Blade and they'd just straight up use that over a lot of uniques or rares because it just gave so much damage. Compared to its unique version (The Grandfather), a Cruel Colossus Blade could potentially have +300% Enhanced Damage compared to the Grandfather's +250%, and while it'd be missing most of the other stats, it a hell of a lot easier to find a Cruel Colossus Blade than it is a Grandfather, and it still had a ton of raw damage. It would get even sillier if it was a Cruel Colossus Blade of Quickness, having +300% Enhanced Damage and +40% Increased Attack Speed, making it quite a bit better than its unique version.

But then you might think, "What if my magic item could have more than two stats? How many stats could I get on an item?" And this is where rare items come in. Rare items are just like magic items, except they can have up to three prefix bonuses and three suffix bonuses. So with a magic item, you'd have to choose between a Cruel Colossus Blade for its Enhanced Damage or a Master's Colossus Blade (Less Enhanced Damage, but also gives Attack Rating). Not so with a rare item; you could potentially have a rare item that's effectively a Master's Cruel Grinding Colossus Blade that had the following:

>+450% Enhanced Damage (+300% from the Cruel mod, +150% from Master's)
>+250 to Attack Rating (From Master's)
>+74 to Maximum Damage (From Grinding)

And you'd have a stupidly powerful, stupidly rare sword that would utterly dwarf any unique item you could find, and still have three potential slots for more suffix mods. The chance of finding that weapon is rarer than winning the lotto IRL though, so good luck trying to find it yourself. But hey, you don't need something perfect, just something with better stats than you'd get on a unique.

>> No.10971292

Does the rare item have better mods than the unique item? If no, then it’s obviously not better

Rare items to look out for >>
Weapons: don’t bother unless you’re using it as a leveling weapon. Uniques and Runewords are a better choice.
Boots: Dual Resists in the 20-40% Range, Faster Run Walk 20+%, Damage Reduction, +life, +Magic find.
Gloves: 20+% Faster Attack Rate for melee, 20+% Faster Cast Rate, + skills, +Resists, Life/Mana leech for melee
Rings: same as above
Amulet: same as above

And finally, the best things to look out for are headgear, specifically CIRCLETS/TIARAS/CORONETS
THESE THINGS ARE FUCKING GODLY. GAMBLE/IMBUE/MF for them because they are the be all/end all for end game gear if you get that 1:100000000 perfect roll. You can get something ridiculous like:

+2 Skills
+30 Dex
+30 Str
2 sockets
Mana Leach
Life Leach

Or any other crazy combinationss

>> No.10971369

I mean, The problem is there's a lot of variety, like for a big two handed sword the only choice isn't just the Grandfather, yeah? I'd rather have an ethereal Breath of the Dying colossus blade with perfect stats rather than even your perfect rare example (and getting + using a 415% ed and 15% ll eth BotD col blade is a D2 life goal of mine). Rare items being so random and not really having any standards to them, makes it so that for me to notice it's good it'd have to not just be "good enough", it'd have to be absolutely insane to the point that it's impossible not to notice that I have something good in my hands. The problem is I don't know where the edge cases are where rare items can somewhat reliably edge out any possible set, unique or runeword possible.

>Rare items to look out for
How much of them would I need for one to be good? What I mean is for let's say the boots, would the rare have to pretty much all of those or are some mandatory and others bonuses?
Also for how hard I find it to identify a good rare, I look at your circlet example and I think it's pretty good, but I would never have thought insane without you saying that.

>> No.10971831

Having a BotD is all fine and dandy, if you manage to get to that point. Likely though you won't go instantly to it unless you can grind up enough items to trade for one.

Rare items are either stopgaps you use while improving your gear or literally very tip top items that are complete speckled unicorns of perfection. Most are not worth using and you could ignore them all if you wanted to, but you might occasionally miss out on something good.

I've had several over the last 15 years or however long it's been since the runeword was introduced, I don't remember for sure if any were eth though and definitely none were immaculate. I've always had terrible luck finding runeword bases myself.

>but you might occasionally miss out on something good.
Honestly, I've probably vendored crazy good rare items more than once, especially rings - I looked up what was apparently an absolutely absurdly perfect ring and I kinda feel like there's a non-negligible chance I'd have just sold it off if I'd found it. The numbers feeling so random just make me go "is this really all that?" along with nothing that truly speaks to my soul other than 10 fcr.

I've finished that back in 2019. The social, open-world stuff was very barebones, but those FPS and fighting sections were truly horrible. The final boss was so hard that I had to put the difficulty back to Easy just for that fight. The fighting sections were so random because you either fought a braindead moron, or the AI kicked into high gear and a hospital nurse would absolutely wreck your ass in a single combo, with a Shoryuken in the middle! And it was so weird because if you died against one opponent, the AI would randomize again and he would be a moron in the next fight.

Still never played this one. Why do I always see people talking about it as if they were filtered hard?

Because in this one you're actually obligated to get good, unlike other classic or X games. So either you get good and you enjoy the game, or you get filtered. Choose your side.

The GBA port is a fair bit harder than the SNES version due to screen size limitations and that's the version everyone played back when due to the original being Japan only. Plus, it was always made to be a fair bit harder than the average Megaman game to begin with, especially if you played as Megaman instead of Bass. Though there is a fair bit of tradeoff in what portions are easier as each character.

Sorry but your anime cartoon characters aren't based. But nice try
