Do you guys find 3D games released later in the 5th gen more playable than the ones released earlier?
like a game from 1996 to a game in 1999?

or is the whole gen just unplayable today?

>The developers could have stayed with 2D for another few years and released some great games
They did, you know. They kept releasing incredible 2d games late into the nineties, e.g. D&D Shadow Over Mystara, on home consoles, e.g. Symphony of the Night, and even into the 2000s, e.g. MvsC2. 5th gen tech brought us the likes of Crash and Spyro, Ocarina of Time, Panzer Dragoon and Tekken 3 etc. etc. etc. We had the best of both worlds and still do.

I picked up two CD games for really cheap but i dont have a computer to play them on. The games works for windows 95 and up. The problem is that i dont have much money and it would take more than a year to save for a modern laptop. Do u guys know where i can get an old laptop for cheap? I only need it to be cabable of running windows 95 games. It must have a disc drive. I cant imagine an outdated windows xp laptop would cost that much.

Assuming OP had no access to an internet connection, CDs and a cheapest laptop is actually the least time consuming to get running. Else, I see no reason to just pirate them and apply nocd cracks. It's very unlikely to get copyright notices for old games if that's his concern.

Hey /vr/. I performed an experiment today and it worked really well so I thought I'd share. I had this cheap knock off Cirka snes controller. If you've ever used one they feel just awful, everything is super stiff. If you've ever wondered, the 'stiffness' of buttons is related to how much force is required to depress the plungers on the rubber pads beneath them. I took it apart wondering if there may be a way to reduce how much force would be required, therefore bringing it down to how effortless and loose the actual SNES controller is.

I took a knife and made incisions on the rubber pads near the base of each plunger; one at every cardinal. The L and R plungers were quite a but bigger so I cut out entire squares instead. It was fairly simple and testing as I went they definitely felt easier to depress. I put it back together and fucking wow, it's a massive difference. It's still not quite OEM level (nothing will fix the cheaper plastics), but the stiffness is near entirely gone. I can roll the dpad without any effort, the buttons require hardly any force, it's more than useable now.

So if anyone happens to have some shitty stiff controls I highly recommend giving this a try, especially if you dont have any OEM controllers at all. This simple fix turns a 10 dollar controller into a 30 dollar one

What did /vr/ think of the Medievil remake?
It was surprisingly closer in design to the original than I anticipated. I didn't like Dan's new running animation. The art style also feels quite different. I still think it's a very nice looking game though and after having played through both versions to 100% completion (since the original game is an unlockable in the remake), I'd sooner return to the remake if I ever decide to play it again. It makes very few actual changes to gameplay but what's changed is for the better, like the Pumpkin Serpent boss being expanded, the ability to light canons with the dragon armor's fire during the ghost pirate boss, equipping two weapons at once, or being able to burn the haystacks that spawn enemies in the scarecrow fields.
I think this is one case of a remake taking the opportunity to fix issues the original had while not fucking around with anything too much. It was good, but not perfect, and after having played both versions I think Medievil is a game with a number of charming and incredibly memorable moments, but it just wasn't ever that great of a game.

If they fix all the glitches, it's great.
You can jump over gates, the cutscenes glitch out, you can get stuck under the dragon platforms, Dan doesn't always get in position when reading books/opening chests...

What would produce better image quality or less controller latency? How accurate is the retroarch emulation on Wii U vs using real cartridges or a flash cart on a gameboy player?

Yeah, this game was pretty unique in that your roster of operatives' status carried on between missions. Wounded operators needed time to recover and those killed in action remained dead. This gave you an incentive to plan and execute missions well, especially since the replacement operatives for those KIA had a very poor skillset in comparison. Though not as deep, the PS version still retained elements of this.
