If you're referring to this idiot, no, he was a Rom Hacker unrelated to the old folks. He was like 15 when he registered for the site and did a Super Mario Kart hack or two. Not sure how you got that impression. Maybe mixing up a different name starting with G? He was like seven when all that stuff was going on.

The old folks being mentioned were Translation Hackers no less, rather than gameplay altering Hackers like Garouth.

He was known for not actually putting critical thought into stuff, misunderstanding sarcasm always, and having several dumb things he said put into peoples' sigs. He left when there was a forum controversy about a year and a half or more back. I believe it was before I was added as a mod again(I was a mod for a while here back in 2009 and resigned due to forum drama).

Baru goes by Myria now, FWIW.

Makes you wonder how that little tidbit of incorrect info got spread around... Someone with the same actual name being killed in a car accident in the same area? Prank? Running joke between some random folks gone wrong? Malicious intent?

That was a huge lie apparently. She stopped by the IRC channel a while back.

Not only that, but she even posted here correcting it somewhere in the news section.

It's probably just an emulation error. Given the emulator hasn't been updated in literally years, you're likely screwed.

new vegas best fallout imo

FONV for the win.

As for FO4? I'm very much excited for it... When it's finished, that is. Because it's not. Bethesda games aren't like Borderlands 1/2/Pre-Sequel, where you get a complete game that gets bigger. There's always something missing about them that the DLC fills in. Before now, it was a proper ending(FO3) and a too low level cap(FO3, FONV), amongst other things. I don';t know much about FO4, but I'm sure there's something missing.

I'm not even going to go into the subject of buggy initial releases for Bethesda games.

So, what's the Fool class for? Is it like other games where it starts off weak as all fuck and then at the end is able to one shot Archangels?

Sorry, dude, but we don't allow ROM links here.

Gaming Discussion / Re: PC Gaming - Mouse/Keyboard vs Gamepad
« on: November 11, 2015, 10:01:54 am »
For games based around precise aiming and shooting, as well as First Person games in general, I use keyboard/mouse. For platforming games, controller. For the occasional strategy game, keyboard/mouse. Fighting games, controller. 3D melee action games like Metal Gear Rising or Dynasty Warriors or etc, controller. Emulation, controller.

List goes on bouncing between controller and keyboard/mouse. It really depends on the game AND the genre of the game. Sometimes, there are exceptions(Serious Sam DD is a side scrolling platformer with a fair bit of jumping around but it also has aimed shooting so I use keyboard/mouse) to the rules.

Yep, the vertical lines in the Comix Zone shadows are a "trick" they used in conjunction with CRT TVs. Due to the way CRTs functioned, these created a fake translucency. The same can be seen with the waterfalls in Sonic.

So, it was, in fact, option 4.

Toss up between the PS1 and PS2 for me. I don't revisit those games often, but that's because I have a backlog.

There's a few possibilities.

1. The shadows are glitched on every properly emulated, well, emulator, and on at least one hardware revision due to a bug in the game's code. This would mean emulators that show unglitched shadows are either doing it wrong, or emulating slightly different variations. Recall that the console had two major revisions in the U.S., a kazillion versions where it was either an add-on or embedded into something, and who knows how many minor revisions.

2. Somehow all the emulators are getting it wrong, and something just happened to be wrong with that particular console/cart setup in the linked video.

3. The shadows are glitched in one revision of the game, but not in others. I don't know if the game has any alt versions outside of country/region differences, or any undumped versions.

4. Something else I haven't thought of. :P

Radiant Silvergun got an Xbox Live Arcade release, as did Guardian Heroes, IIRC.
