Gaming Discussion / Re: Sega embraces game modding.
« on: April 27, 2016, 03:08:30 pm »
I can only speak for the SNES version but "ehhhh". It pretty much has everything that I usually see in RPGs. Lots of interation with NPCs (some can become party memebers if you got the cash/nuyen), experience points (karma points), a stat leveling system, customizable equipment, some fantasy and scifi elements (typical in RPGs), a large world to explore somewhat freely, etc, etc. I can't think of anything that would make it not an RPG. To me it is 100% an action RPG. If the Sega version is anything like the SNES version (I know they're supposed to be pretty different) then it is def an RPG.

Side note: Shadowrun is dope.

EDIT: I just looked up the Sega CD version. It appears to be a turn-based RPG and looks really cool. I am now so disappointed that we didn't get it.

Guess I was wrong about that.

Also, all three Shadowrun 16 bit games are different games. If you disliked the SNES version, try the genesis one.

Shadowrun's more of an adventure game than an RPG, IIRC.

Again? Did something happen outside of the usual selling shit on ebay?

BOF4 was localized by Capcom, so it doesn't really count.

It depends on the amount of work that goes into it. Minor edits aren't allowed, but making a 100% new sprite or a complete sprite replacement including all of it editing is.

See, at least with FO4, you don't have authors taking old mods and making paid versions of them.

That was morally indefensible.

Not only that, they're welcome on Steam Workshop for their package thingy (though IMO I don't really know why you would buy that).

So you can legally hack shit and release it.

Apparently, the game's original director had this one remade.

Revivalist is the word you're looking for. Obscure as hell, so I don't blame you for not knowing it.

I don't recall. I know you need both ultimate vault hunter packs for the extra skill points. There's a video on youtube and I believe it shows what skills are used before he goes and one shots the raid boss.

BTW, if anyone thinks that Mechro is broken, the Psycho is capable of one shotting raid bosses with no equipment and with the badass stat bonuses shut off.

It is stupidly, stupidly broken.

Wasn't meant to be an advertisement, it was a watermark intended to declare where the roms you got "originated" from. Originated is in quotations because I don't think Vim ever did any actual rom dumping so it was all an ego driven enterprise of bullshit and idiot.

Fiddley? LOL

The camera and a lot of the little elements of the game are kind of off and hard to control/handle/etc. Hence my use of fiddly.

Gaming Discussion / Re: What is the definitive version of Star Fox 2?
« on: March 25, 2016, 10:15:23 am »
We sadly won't see that version unless Nintendo, bizarrely, uses it to push new hardware sales as can be argued they've tried to with EarthBound and EBB (aka EB0) being limited to Wii U and the former being restricted to New 3DSes.
(though as to whether Nintendo has a legitimate case for restricting SNES VC to New 3DSes, I'm not sure. I have heard about homebrew SNES emulators for all 3DS but I hear they're pretty slow and buggy so I don't know.
But EBB not being on 3DS? Is there any good reason for that?)

I read a post from a developer of one of the 3DS homebrew SNES emulators, and he basically said the only way they got it to work was hacks so massive that a lot of games could never work, up to and including jury rigging the GPU to do stuff on the game. Nintendo, on the other hand, is basically doing software emulation on the N3DS, thanks to its much, much higher clocked CPU.

Threads of Fate was cool, but honestly a little too fiddley. Ahead of its time and paid the price, IMO.

Turn on the Dynarec. The option's a bit hidden. When you have ePSXe loaded but no game loaded, look under the Options tab and you'll find a menu named CPU Mode. You can swap it to Dynarec which will get you a fuckton more speed.

Surprised you need it, though. Older PC, bregalad?

We've had title screen hacks since forever, dude. http://www.romhacking.net/hacks/84/ here's one pre-dating the site's official launch.

As for "science"

Okay, show me the science. back up your claim. Show me the pier reviewed studies. Not just some random news article, the actual fucking studies. Until then, I'm gonna call bullshit, bias and bigotry based off of ancient thinking the likes of which should be outdated in the days of silicon and the internet.
