the wonky windows are affine texturing artifacts. I'm guessing this is some PSX game running in a shitty emulator that renders the graphics in 1080p.

The affine mapping looks much less awful when you run games on the real hardware, since it is rendered at 320x224, and there's just not enough pixels on the screen for it to be a real issue.

It definitely doesn't look current gen. It looks about as good as a PS2 game, but considering the technology is about half a decade older, it still looks good for its time.

Sony never actually said this, it's a videogame urban legend. Seamus Blackley (the head of Microsoft's Xbox division) said it about the original Xbox:

Ken Kuturagi said that, and it was likely a mistranslation since he spoke fuckall for English at the time.

If you really want to get butthurt over something Sony said than you'd be better off looking at the answer they gave when asked "How many controller ports will the PlayStation 2 have?" by OPM, to which they replied "How many do you want?"

I guess they thought our answer was "2"

If the Dreamcast had come after the PS2 then it really wouldn't have registered with anyone. The PS2 had far too much hype behind it, the Xbox only made sales because of Halo, and Nintendo sold because Mario and Zelda. DC would have still failed on the basis of selling consoles only for Sonic Adventure and wouldn't have had the huge launch sales it got for being cutting edge.
Not to mention that Sega would've been bankrupt by then so they wouldn't have had a penny for marketing.

Its a unique concept for a game, highly stylized art style with a fairly unique and well produced soundtrack.

>> No.3761601

>the Xbox only made sales because of Halo,

Nobody gave a shit about Halo until Halo 2. It was a minor cult classic until then. Xbox sold as good as it did regardless of the first game.

When Halo 2 came out, they pushed the marketing up to eleven and turned the Xbox brand into the Halo Console.

>> No.3761603

>> No.3761615

I think the graffiti culture point is interesting. JSR did a good job of having a clear PoV, but it wasn't trying to pass itself off as edgy. A lot of games (like the later THPS games) kind of shove a lot of "teen culture" (or some Marketer's idea of "teen culture") and it often doesn't work. I love THPS's gameplay, but its aesthetic leaves a lot to be desired. JSR is less easy to pinpoint the real-world basis of, so I think it aged better and feels more genuine.

This isn't to say that JSR has no real-world influences, but that it doesn't take them overly seriously, and it is clearly sourcing a lot of stuff for inspiration, rather than trying to establish its own cred by jamming in references to real world "cool" stuff.

It's a pretty simple game where you control Arale doing small tasks and sometimes battling some enemies. I'm still a the beggining of the game.
Unfortunately, it's based on the Dr Slump remake, and not on the original series or the manga.
The remake may look good, but they shouldn't have ditched Arale's iconic original design, even though the new one looks pretty good.

>I bet if Sega released the Dreamcast in 2000 instead of 1998, it would get the respect it deserved and actually have a larger marketshare of games.

I disagree, releasing it in late 1998 was a smart move (Microsoft used the same strategy with the Xbox 360 and it worked for them), the Saturn was virtually dead in the west by late 1997 and the PS2 hype was enormous. An earlier 6th gen release would give time to build a good library to make the console still appealing against the PS2, otherwise it would be destroyed by Sony's machine.

Quite frankly, software-wise this strategy worked, the Dreamcast had an amazing library by 2000. Sega's two problems were their bad financial situation and negative brand association (thanks to failures like the Sega CD, 32X and the Saturn in the west).

It was a problem in earlier PS2 games when devs weren't familiarized with the architeture, on the PS2 the VRAM works like some kind of texture cache. On the other hand, the Dreamcast has very specific bottlenecks like the amount of polygons it can push.

But I believe the hardware could have remained competitive until late 2003 or so. Given the late 1998 release, we're talking about a 5 year life span, that's good enough.
