That you should buy the games off them if you really want them dumped.

that those undumped games are beta crap of b games and no one cares

>> No.4948448

Beyond historical reasons/notation? That anon isn't off so you can put your epic wojack meme away. Of all of the beta games I've played, Resident Evil 1.5 is probably the only one that's any semblance of fun and even that has annoying things present that obviously aren't ironed out.

Not appreciating the chance to experience an in-development stage of a beloved videogame is brainlet tier.

so what?

>> No.4948680

shit like those japanese people who were hoarding 70+ games considered to be lost is annoying to me. i don't care too much about undumped betas and stuff (other than publicly shown demos) but the unreleased or lost games are interesting.

No. Unless the game was commercial sold, they have no right to it. Samples, review copies, betas and prototypes are stolen property.

>> No.4949105


>> No.4949152

This actually bothers me. The original developers, artists, musicians don't see a dime for their work, because the game was unreleased, and meanwhile some overweight "collector" goes around commanding 5-figure price tags on prototypes he had NOTHING to do with creating.

>> No.4949183

sure everything that's not sold in stores is stolen property. what a weird way you have to look at things.

>> No.4949195

cunts, the lot of them
especially if they're prototypes
with final releases that made it to the market, it's not so bad since it's the owner's property and they have the right to do what they want, but it's still lame as shit

>> No.4949197

No, it isn't. This may shock you but you care about an incredibly niche experience in an already niche board. Appreciation, my ass. It's good to compile the information but don't act like it's a privileged experience when it comes to replayability.

>> No.4949198


play and ducument every playstation game first and then we talk

>> No.4950252

>What is your opinion on people who hoard undumped games?
they own the property so it's up to them but lets not as most do assume dumping automatically equates to emulating or sharing. Rare games should be dumped even if privately for preservation.

as far as the games go i can't name barely any undumped that i even care about only maybe dodonpachi blue version which is owned by the competition winner and a special version of metal black which i believe shou has.

>> No.4950270

They're nothing you'd want to play, and most can be bought for a dollar.

>> No.4950398


>> No.4950404

All the games worth playing have been dumped so who cares

>> No.4950558

My opinion is that there are few, if any. Romharders actually mean unreleased dump when they say dumped.

Depends what you mean by "worthwhile". But I can tell you that there are many romhoarders who loose sleep at night because their SD is missing a few turds they'll only look at once. You wouldn't believe the messages I get full of begging, sob stories and threats. This is clearly a serious life defining issue for certain people.

I hope they eat healthy. Sleep well, and lead a long productive life.

>> No.4951105

They won't. That's why the Pokemon space world games were dumped.

>> No.4951115

They don't owe you a dump, you're not entitled to every game ever and most of the time you wouldn't even know the game existed in the first place till someone started whining.

>> No.4951295

Worthless idiots. Like that dude that didn't share the StarCraft source.

This but unironically. Lmaoing about the beta kiddies itt trying to play it chill when they spend half their day spazzing out about betas they'll never play and sending death threats to people who may or may not even have them.
That's a myth.

It's selfish but ultimatly it's their shit to do with as they please.

I wish they would dump everything but if you're in it for financial reasons or epeen contests it would make no sense to dump a game.

Shut up fag
The HL1 Alpha was full of really cool ideas, and the HL2 beta was both full of even cooler ideas, and also fun to play, arguably moreso than the actual game. If you can't appreciate the cool ideas put into games, why the hell are you playing video games?

Andrew Borden of PtoPOnline is a great man. How is he supposed to achieve his dream of being a "video game historian" if he gives you goys rips of all his unreleased games?
Please give him 300 dollars and come to New York if you want to play some unreleased games from his archive goy.

>> No.4956885

I used to care about undumped shit, but I just have as much resentment for peeps who overvalue this shit and refuse to make large torrent backups of NexusMods, LoversLab, MUGEN characters, vector.co.jp, freem.ne.jp & tons of other freeware & shit.

I also despise how much of an elitist Trigger Squad most dumpers tend to be, ignoring the chance to "redump" any doujin game that's $15 or less on eBay cuz there might be half a titty in it for their low IQ, $300 PSX demo disc collection.

If they're not looking for that odd Paki-Bash thing for Atari ST, I don't give a shit about these retrofag dumpers.
