  1. So, does any one on here collect retro video games? If so, what consoles do you collect for? Any specific game genres you like to collect for or do you collect them all?
  2. So, as many of you may have noticed, there's been a sudden resurgence of retro gaming consoles. I'm not talking about retro games available for download on virtual consoles. No. They've actually begun manufacturing old consoles again. It's quite amazing. There was an add in the paper for 8-bit classic Nintendos at Target, and, of all places, Bed Bath & Beyond had a display of Sega Genesis consoles, and Atari 2600s! ATARI FREAKING 2600! Now, there do seem to be some minor improvements and tweaks--the Genesis appears to come bundled with some on-board games. So, in other words, if you don't have any cartridges, I guess you can turn on the power and you'll get a menu with a few iconic games right there on the system. I think some of the consoles might be smaller, as well. I think the original Atari 2600 was about the size of a refrigerator, so I would expect them to make that smaller. (Isn't it amazing how many millions of times more powerful a modern phone is than one of those old hulking monstrosities?) Anyway, apart from being smaller, the Atari looked exactly the same. Other than that, these are totally real, totally legit consoles, just like they were way back in the day. The most amazing thing about this resurgence is that it seems to have happened overnight. It was extremely sudden. These things used to be highly sought after collector's items and relics of the past, and then all of sudden, boom, they're on the shelves again. In a small way, I almost feel like it diminishes the meaning of the old relics of the collectors, but in a bigger way, I think it's pretty awesome. Surely there's a lot to say about it. Lastly, unless I've greatly missed my guess, I believe that most of the credit for this retro resurgence can be given to James Rolfe. Without him, I doubt that this ever would have happened.
  3. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ||NNSpace NNSpace or Neon Space is a game i developed in a week so far, it's a retro style arcade game that consists in surviving as long as possible in upcoming waves of always harder waves, since the game is currently in development so there is nothing much to see but it's going to get bigger (i am NOT an artist so please don't commentate on the art style and such) dowload at: upcoming features: -enemies with smart AI (chase player) -small motherships (float around with small turrets) -big motherships (small bosses with multiple turrets and rocket turrets) -huge motherships (bosses that spawn every 30 waves and get stronger with multiple turrets rockets and spawn smaller spacecrafts, give an extra life if u defeat em) -scoreboard (scoreboard of current top scores) -more kind of meteors -more stuff that you guys can suggest as of version 0.6.2 -rockets are now slightly slower and easier to hit as of version 0.6.1 -rockets now destroy also meteors as of version 0.6 -added rocket turrets as of version 0.5.1 -added a turret on the space station (with player aim) as of version 0.5 -space station as of version 0.4.1 -solved small respawn bug -time counter as of version 0.4 -small enemy spaceships with no smart AI (don't chase player) -wave counter as of version 0.3 -red big meteors as of version 0.2 -blue splitter meteorices -light blue splitted meteorites as of version 0.1 -green normal meteories -lives -score (original game maker forum page)
  4. As you might have noticed, there's a certain niche crowd out there for retro gaming. A lot of recent games have been made in a 32-bit style with chip tunes to call back to the older days of gaming, to the SNES and Genesis. These games have shown themselves to be... very well done, in a lot of cases. After all, they are utilizing tech that is well known and probably helped along by newer processors that can more than handle the payload. But I pose a question to you? Would you be interested in a game inspired by those made around the late 90s? To clarify, I'm talking about the games that came out for the original PlayStation and the Nintendo 64. Games with an excessively low polygon count, synthy music, and when 3D games were becoming a reality. Could this be an unexplored avenue developers could explore? Or is it too much of a downgrade with not enough reward or nostalgia to entice you to play it again?
  5. So I know I've been in and out of these boards for like awhile now. I have been meaning to edit this sucker for quiet some time. So as of now let's be official about this! <--- this lovely link right here will bring you to my Live Streaming Page. As of right now because my work life demands it, I can't post a consistent timing of when I shall be live. More or less I play week by week depending on what I have to do outside of my stable. Here is a current list of games we are playing, or are planning to play within the next month; Super Metroid (Hacks and Randomizer runs) Legend of Zelda (Different ones including Zelda Classic) MegaMan Mario There are other games on my agenda, but as a basic rule of thumb plan on seeing mainly Nintendo games atm. Thank you for stopping by, and hope to see y'all soon. (DoctorMcCrimmon is the artist who did my channel and avatar art)
  6. Not talking about new games rather copies of already-made games. My cousin is interested in Super Smash Bros Melee but it's craaazy expensive, even for a copy of the disc without packaging. Even though it's the No 1 best selling game on the Gamecube, it's pricey because it's in such high demand, my cousin says. This would be a good source of profit for good ol Nintendy, so they really ought to consider the idea. Same goes for other hits like Paper Mario.
  7. The other day I dusted off my good ol' N64 to play some Star Fox and Super Mario. After playing both games for countless hours, I ran into a bit of a problem: those are the only two games I have for the damn thing. I live in Massachusetts and I was wondering if anyone knew of any retro game stores around? The only one I knew of that was really close to me was shut down last year and I'm having a hard time finding other places. Thanks in advance!
  8. I was just playing some Atari 2600 games I got in the mail today, and thought, "Did people really play this? I have been missing out!" It was true, I was born in 1992, so I never got to experience anything before the NES years (My father still had it and gave it to me) The only systems I truly grew up with were the SNES and the N64. I was hooked back then. (And I still am to this day.) But that doesn't mean I don't enjoy the newer game systems of today, like the Xbox 360, the PS3, and the Wii. I enjoy the online multiplayer games of the Xbox 360, I like the motion controls of the Wii (NOT LOVE, LIKE), and some of the exclusives to the PS3's library of games.
  9. Personally I'm a big fan of video game emulation, It's vital to me for my game reviews in order to be able get game footage and manipulate it easily, and I much prefer a software to a hardware solution. Additionally I like the customisability certain emulators give. What do you think of emulators? I have..a fair few of them, I tend to have numerous emulators for each system so I probably have about 30 emulators in total, all configured differently. Let me know if you have any questions re-emulators I have a lot of tips and tricks I've accumulated over the years.
  10. Welcome to the gaming club! Here we play through a new game every month (This time limit will be extended if the game is long.) Everypony is welcome to join in and participate. Don't worry about your skill level, we'll all be willing to lend you a helping hand. Now without further ado let's get to the reason that you're all (probably) here for, the games! Here are the games for our first poll! If you suggested multiple games in the last topic I took the first one you listed first. I hope you don't mind. Since I haven't played all of the games, there might be something that I should have included in my little sales pitch but didn't. If that is the case please tell me and I'll add it in ASAP. Actraiser (SNES, Wii, PC) An interesting blend of action and city building that was never seen before, or since. You take on the role of a god trying to restore a world overrun by demonic forces. The gameplay is split up into 2 types. The first is a side scrolling action platformer with tight controls and a nice challenge. The second is a city building sim akin to Sim City. Command and Conquer 3: Kane's Wrath (PC, Xbox 360) This expansion pack to the long running RTS franchise sees you take control of LEGION, an artificial intelligance created by Kane. Learn more about Kane, why and how events from C&Q 3 came to be, and see what happened after the end of the original game. JSRF: Jet Set Radio Future (Xbox, PC) Are you ready to leave your mark on Tokyo-to? In this game you are a member of the GGs a graffiti gang vying for control of various disticts in the city with other rival gangs. Head into rival gang territory and cover up their marks with your own, just make sure you don't get caught by the police. Mega Man (NES, Gamecube, PS2, Xbox, Wii, PS3, Wii U, PSP, 3DS, PC) The start of an iconic video game franchise. The first great action platformer to a lot of people. You take control of Mega Man a robot created by Doctor Light for household chores along with his sister Roll. After his 6 brothers go crazy and start attacking people DR. Light upgrades Mega Man with combat abilities and sends him on a quest to stop his brothers. Well known for its non linear gameplay, the game allows you to take on any of your 6 brothers in any order you wish. Tight controls and a high difficulty make this a great example of NES gaming. Treasure Planet (Playstation, PS2, PC) Relive the Disney movie as you take control of Jim Hawkins, a young biy thirsting for adventure who ends up on an expedition to find, you guessed it, Treasure Planet. The gameplay is divided up into two sections. The first is a 3D platformer, and the second is levels where you ride on the solar surfer. The solar surfer levels are levels where you ride on the solar surfer completing various objectives, collect enough gold dubloons, fly through rings, race against the clock, etc. This game somehow managed to escape the movie liscensed game trap, and is actually a good game.
  11. We would pick a game and then discuss it with each other as we play through it. When we finish a game then everyone can post their suggestions for the next game and we could all vote on which to play next. All genres are welcome as long as the game has an ending. If you don't have access to a game then no problems, you can just join back in on the discussion the next time we're playing a game you have access to. I thought of this last night and I think it would be really fun. I was thinking of starting with a short NES game since any PC or laptop made in the last decade would be able to run it. The thread has been made and the first poll is up! Hope to see you there!
  12. Alright. So recently, I have acquired a copy of RPG maker VX ace, with plans of making a game in classic, 16-bit style. I would like to get as much help as possible on the project. My hopes are that it would have a true-to-console 16-bit feel. As in, all of the music, the graphics, and pretty much everything would be stylized like that of a Sega Genesis or Super Nintendo game. (This is partially why I started to do pixel art) What I would need, would be those kind enough to offer their help in creating the music, the graphics, as well as the storyline. So... Writers, musical artists, concept artists, pixel artists and even anybody who knows all of the in's and out's of making a good RPG, and even those good at social networking. If anybody would like to help: PM me, or just leave a comment.
  13. Hey all, some of you may know me and some may not. I'm comicconreviews aka Gamer Twilight. I host the YouTube channel; comicconreviews which is dedicated to looking at the history of video games. I'm especially fond of old pc games, ie Half Life, Deus Ex, and Dos games. I'd like to start a thread for other enthusiasts of old pc games. To kick-start the thread I want to share this video which is a very easy way to emulate Dosbox games. Dosbox, to those who do not know, allows people to emulate games from the early 80's to the late 90's. So many great games in that time, I know a handful, and would like to share my existing knowledge with those in this thread. I've put together this video which shows an extremely easy way of playing dos games on a modern OS such as Windows 7/8. I hope I can spark an interest with newbies to Dos with this. Anyone interested please share the video/let other ponies know. I'm very active on my YouTube channel and the social media I have integrated with the channel. Ie YouTube: Tumblr: Facebook Fan Page: Twitter: Steam:
  14. Hello everypony and welcome to my latest Let's Play.As you can see from the title i'm doing Castlevania for the Nintendo.Enjoy.Watch what i do to Death.all of my LP's link-
  15. I don't know if anyone remembers the Donkey Kong Country games for the SNES back in the 90's, but in my opinion they had some great music. One song in particular was my favorite. Mining Melancholy from DKC2. Well I just finished a remix of it. This was my first remix, and it was seriously difficult. It's much easier to write my own music than to try and play someone elses -_- But I did my best, and while it's not nearly as good as the original, I hope it can be seen as a decent effort for a first remix.
