They're all charming in their own way. Well, Mario 1 feels darker than the later games, like most of the game is very industrial-looking, or dry-looking, but still elegant.

based on that picture alone I'd say SMB1 clearly. The koopa's shell has a shine, the spine turtle's spike's look sharp, the flying fish doesn't waste one of its 3 colors on a black outline, and Lakitu has a direction.

Honestly the sprites in SMB3 are underwhelming individually, what's good aesthetically about SMB3 is the variety of the game as a whole (levels, number of enemy types, etc.)

What did they mean by developing a game that consists literally every single black stereotype you can imagine (apart from watermelon and fried chicken)? Is it an offense, a parody, or just a completely failed attempt at "market research" targeted towards black audiences?

I actually kinda liked Shell Shock on the Sega Saturn. It was, in many ways, an extension of Thunderhawk on the Sega CD (and Thunderhawk 2 on the Saturn/ PS1). The Saturn version uses the systems "mode 7" 3D playing field, which made the environments very flat. But the game itself was alright.

It does have stereotypical 90's era black characters and a mid '90's hip hop aesthetic. But that was par for the course for the era.

Can't you read dutch OP? They're demolishing bootleg games (aka repros as newfags call them), not original games that collectors would like to have.

Anyone remotely interested in digitized fighting games has heard of Galloping Ghost and the pending release of its sole title "Dark Presence," but the story goes even deeper than what initial reports have covered. Based on a few queries into the Wayback Machine, production apparently started in December, 1998. From the images that survived, an early version was apparently in development and then scrapped sometime around 2005/2006:

It is a serious undertaking for one man to do all the programming, but it seems little, if any, progress was made from the time production started. Absolutely no footage of gameplay surfaced and the new site is riddled with dead links. Even with the apparent success of the Galloping Ghost Arcade (if their social media presence is any indication), completion and release of Dark Presence do not appear to be forthcoming.

What's very interesting is that Galloping Ghost solicited for prospective investors as early as 2000:

Does anyone have more info on this? This is too damn interesting to pass up.

What was the technical reason behind PSX textures being all wobbly and wavy? Hardware noob here but preety much fascinated by why early low-poly models acted like that. N64 seemed to be more stable in that matter

>> No.5524792


>> No.5524856

1. PSX used affine texture mapping instead of perspective-correct mapping like the N64, because it was faster to compute and because the PSX didn't have a Z buffer. This means textures warp as the perspective changes.
2. PSX used fixed point values for polygon vertices instead of floating point, so the coordinates weren't as accurate. The "wobble" is caused by the vertices being rounded between two different values.
