I was saw it as a response to the kiddie reputation they developed at the time due to how censorship-friendly they were. Nintendo desperately needed an image change after they fucked up with the Super NES port of Mortal Kombat and the Genesis version outsold it by twice the amount.

Don't feel bad, I might have gotten a SNES in 1997 but I didn't get an N64 until Christmas 2000, and didn't get a PS1 until the slim PS2s came out.

A friend of mine got quite a few consoles really close to launch. I always was jealous because his family most definitely WAS poor, but after I grew up it made sense that he was just part of a media family.

512K (4Mb), which is also impressive considering how much crap they crammed into it. I think the 1MB thing came from a bad dump.

On another note, Kirby's Adventure is 6 Mb, and Metal Slader Glory (VN! ON THE NES!) clocks in at a full MB. FF7 NES comes in at 2 (!) MBs.

Also holy shit, did you see that Sega commercial last night after ALF?

>> No.3295259

Talking about game size in data as if it were related to world size in human terms of exploration is obviously retarded, so as was pointed out it's only really tried on millenials.

However with a good enough compression algorithm and simple enough levels and difficulty enough in defining "exploring" environment, it could well be argued that 1mb would be enough for a lifetime. For example try exploring 1mb worth of chess PGN games.

>people discussing about the MB thing

Guise, if you actually lived in the 90s, you'd know magazines said just "Mega"
No bits or bytes or MB or nothing, just MEGA.

MEGAAAAA POWEEEEEEER*gets shot for e-celeb bullshit but proves my point*

I actually never cared about that shit as a kid, but one of my friends did care and if a game wasn't enough big in terms of "MEGA" according to magazines, he wouldn't buy it. But he's such a nerd.

You can beat the game without dying once. You'll still end up with a number on your "death count" at the end of the game unless you play through the entire thing in one sitting.

Yes, each time you save and quit it counts as a death, because the game counts deaths. Go actually beat the game for once and see how wrong you are.

This, because noone had computers so memory sizes were an unknown concepts to most people.

Scaling, Pilot Wings relied on it.

It can be used to zoom in and out on a map or rotate it, like in PW or the map in Zelda 3 or flying the dragon in Secret of Mana.

It may sound like nothing today but without it games would be pretty limited.

>> No.3297820


If you save and quit from the meny it doesn't count as dying.

Source: I know because first time I played it back in 1992-93 I had 112 game overs. Next time I had 6. I didn't play the game in 6 sessions, more like 30+, I played it a few times a week for maybe 2 months.

The thing is, it counts using a fairy as a death. It gets added as a "game over" in the list of dungeons.

You have to use the potions from the witch as the only form of healing if you want to beat this flawless.

>> No.3299424


And to clearify further:

If you run out of hearts and the fairy auto uses, you get 1 game over.

Theorectically you can release the fairy and heal by touching it, but it's not very useful in a boss fight.
