I agree, posting pepe memes is a bannable offense by resetera rules. Right, fellow old timer 4chan user?

When I was a kid, like 6 or 7, I had Earth Defense Force on SNES.
Shooter that was surprisingly hard.
Like really hard.
One day I somehow managed to spill some Orange Juice on the cartridge.
I didn't bother trying to clean it, nor did I know how to.

When I booted it up,
for some reason I had infinite shields or lives.
I was finally able to beat the game.

Yeah, I would cry too if I had to live through that.

>> No.5580226

>>5580118
The SNES had such atrocious slowdown across the entire board of its library due to being such an underpowered and underclocked piece of shit that the difference rusulting from NTSC/PAL basically didn't matter and was just secondary to its slowdown suckage.
I recently replayed earthbound after 19 years and holy fucking shit, there were times when it hit single digit fps. On a 60 Hz NTSC model nontheless.

For some reason, for almost 3 decades I never really got past the very intro to terranigma (for one reason or another) where you're still walking from tower to tower. Last year I started it for like, the 27th time, played through it, it was a different game than I thought and I loved the fuck out of it. And of course, finished it.

'pepe memes' in 2019 != sadfrog like it was in 2009
Don't act like all those pepe (and for the record wojak as well) edits are 'old 4chan' instead of shit directly imported from social media and 9GAG (why do people still visit that garbage website, seriously). It's not even reddit tier anymore at this point but a low effort attempt at trying to fit in with the cool internet guys or in your language "it's become a normie thing".
But hey keep on strawmanning if that comforts you, I won't judge.

The comic character the frog was based on was named Pepe. I can't remember if I saved it, but I know there's a page where a friend of his catches him pissing with his pants entirely down.

For some reason there's a lot of interest by resetera in this place (easy content repost ressource, they often send members to infiltrate or even interrogate people at places they hate to then come back with juicy info they use to try and cause harm or distress somehow to that party - they even have dedicated doxing op discords)
It went beyond suspicious thread timings to screencaps where they brag about flaming internet strangers in places they hate (this very place first)

That reseteratard attacked the OP of a childhood memories topic, unprovoked, because of a reaction pic that's pretty normal (others before him here were yelling at "anime avatars", in 4chan /vr/, seriously)

Not really that I can remember. I have vague memories of getting to the Factory in SMRPG one day early morning. School must have been cancelled or delayed due to snow or whatever. I remember playing in my room with the lights off, it was still a little bit dark out.
