I need help to choose a retro snes or nes game to play. Something with a rich story as well as long play-ability. Extra points for multiplayer. Something that isn't super rare (under 15$) and it can be for any retro system.

There's obvious horror themed classics like Castlevania, Ghosts and Goblins or Splatterhouse but there's a real lack of genuinely spooky 2D games, the best I can think of are Sweet Home and Clock Tower. I might finally get around to Fatal Frame 2 if I have to resort to something more recent.

Hey guys, i was recently cleaning my closet and found my old ps1 along with a bunch of pirated cds circa 1999-2000, the memory card didn't work for shit and some cds were all fucked up but i managed to find some that were working, now im sitting here with 4 games and a working ps1 with a modchip.

What are some essential ps1 games to have? I have a lots of 700mb disks i can burn.

What good mods are there for older games? I know about a bunch of those Super Mario 64 ones, Sonic 3 Complete, that weird Yoshi in Sonic 2 one, Pokemon Red++, Sonic 3 Complete, Sonic 3D Director's Cut, and the Zelda and Metroid ones (especially Rogue Dawn). I imagine there are a shit-load I've never heard of.

The image here is also a 7zip archive, and is full of a pile of romhacks I have on hand.

Interested in playing through one of each franchise.. only one. Which would you recommend of each for someone that maybe wants to only play one of the mentioned vr titles below but not every release. Mainly due to gameplay but story continuity can be a factor too.

Castlevania

Metroid

Contra

Rockman

This list was going to be shorter but it wouldn't have been fair not to include the blue bomber. I'm debating but I've beaten one of those before. Plus, I can't help but prefer the megaman-zero games… ty

Japanese verison of 3

/vr/ help me find the name of this game.

I was a little kid and I saw this game going and going in demo mode in a shop. It was for Amiga I think, at the time I had a commodore so I didn't bought the game but I could stare long time at that demo playing.

So the game was a sort of Rastan clone, and no, was not Rastan because he had a sky with several level of parallax scrolling (that Rastan does not have).

The main character was a sort of barbarian fighting with a club, but he could upgrade it with some potions and other stuff found in chests.

He could for example shoot fireball from the club.

Just to remove the obvious, it was not black tiger and it was not Rastan.

I vaguely remember 2 scenes being played in the demo. One in a montain area with a red sunset sky and another one in a forest with giant trees.

Any help appreciated, is several years the memory of this game haunts me.

Didn't play any of those, and I'm not missing anything tbh. I tried a large number of Nintendo DS roms, because I have a flash cart (the NDS itself was free), but can't get into most of them. With PC games it's much worse because there's even more focus on graphics and fancy 3D shit. In the end, I ended up using that NDS to run emulators for 8-bit systems, especially Gameboy/Color and GameGear. Also a few 16-bit stuff like the Naxat pinball games.

After playing some of the first one, I'm surprised it hasn't become more popular over time. Really fun uses of Bonk's head for combat and platforming.

Also, on the subject of platformers, The Legendary Axe is worth a try. More Castlevania-like game with very brisk levels and good music.

Does he legit still post about it being an ongoing thing? After that long, it's just safer to assume they gave up. But I'm also a pessimistic fuck and usually bail if there's no update after six months.

He actually released his Phantasia PS1 patch on New Years Eve 2012. Big thing though is that he hasn't posted anything since posting a bug fix version for his Phantasia patch. I know Absolute Zero's been in contact with him though; while Absolute Zero's been working on fan translating Tales of Phantasia: Narikiri Dungeon X themselves, they've mentioned wanting to consult with Cless about the actual translation script to try to make the best translation they can (while their original PS1 translation script isn't bad, apparently Cless' feels more polished, the way a localization would) while still trying to get it released in a somewhat timely manner (to the point of it being maybe 2-3 years expected time; their Phantasia PS1 patch being an oddity that only took from August 2007 until December 2007).

Nice thing about Absolute Zero is that they have a decent track record of not taking too horribly long to fan translate, post updates on what they're working on every few months (NDX and Tales of Destiny: Director's Cut at the moment), sometimes with actual video clips of it in motion, and have a programmer that seems to know what he's doing in testing and creating the patches.

Yeah, that embed works.

Just got back into Card Fighters Clash for the first time in forever. I actually reset the game because I had unlocked pretty much everything, but couldn't remember what all those high-powered decks were meant to do. So, once more, from the beginning.

I'd forgotten how grindy it was, to be honest: getting only three to five random cards per battle means it takes an age to build up any assortment of cards, let alone anything usable or what you're after. But right now I'm thinking of building around Chunners to "landmine" enemies (sapping their power so they're only capable of swinging in for a couple of hundred points per turn, but not outright killing them).

I'd also forgotten how damn cozy it was. The music, the art-style: comfiest game on the comfiest portable.

Installed Quake on a retro PC (Pentium II) under Win98SE and the music can't be heard (even though the game reads the music tracks from the CD, which can be seen from the CD drive activity). The music works fine under DOS 6.22 on the same PC. Anyone knows what might be wrong? Graphics performance seems faster under Win98 than under DOS so it would be great to get the music working too.

Ok nevermind, problem solved. It turns out I had to use a DOS mixer program to set volume levels for Quake (the CD audio output channel was all the way down from the DOS mixer's perspective) even though the game was running under Windows. Then again Quake is a 16-bit DOS program, so the solution is plausible (even if confusing).

Oh and fastvid helps immensely, with activated LFB combined writes the game runs as fast under DOS as does under Windows (with the latter probably activating an equivalent performance improvement on graphics driver level).

I noticed that Quake 2/3 engine games somehow insist on using display modes with very high refresh rates like 150 Hz. I don't want to overwork the old CRT monitor with stupidly high refresh rates which are of no use anyway (the computer reaches nowhere near the framerates), just 85 Hz (which is set in dxdiag, and which other games follow except for Q2/3 games like Q2/Hexen2/Half-Life/Q3 etc.) or even 60 Hz will be enough. I don't remember them doing this back in the day btw (or I just didn't pay attention to it), have they always been that way?

It's very average. Drags on a bit.

It's also bizarre in that you spend the entire game shooting the X-Men.

Why is this so underrated, yet so good?

And why doesn't Square return to the charming fantasy setting instead of giving us pseudo-realistic settings with a boy-band enoutrage??

If you enjoyed this you may want to work your way backwards and play ff8 and then ff7, after that you may jump into ff X and x-2.

The hype was deflated after FF8 and a lot of casual fans bailed. It's a captain obvious statement but it's true. Randoms had no expectations and would rather save the money for a PS2 while replaying FF7.

First game I ever pre-ordered, and among my favorites for PS1. Those were the golden years for Squaresoft, this game is very underrated. The blend of technology and fantasy was flawless, great richness of characters and locations, loads of side quest - the chocobo treasure hunting was great fun. FF9's soundtrack is still one I listen to (not like it's my only CD but is in the mix).

Honestly, I have forgotten the specifics, in the storyline and otherwise, but that will make it more enjoyable to replay someday when I have the time. Looking forward to it

No, it's overrated. The game has 20 seconds long loading times before AND after EVERY battle. The reason this game has a cult following is because it was 'retro', you even said it:
