Hello fellow 4channers
I was wondering if any of you can help me remember the name of a rather old game, that could possibly belong to the SNES list. Here are the tips (bare with my format, please):
* The game scenario was something like an arena in open outter space.
* There were two fighting sides, each with their own type of spaceships.
* Each side had 12 battle space ships, if I remember correctly.
* The only game mode, I believe, was a 1v1 match that pitted spaceship vs spaceship until one of the fighting sides had last all his spaceships.
* Among the...

Star Control. You remember some things right(Syreen ship, Arilou ship, Ur-Quan ship), but there were more game modes than just the melee(though that IS the most popular mode to play). The first one's on the Genesis(as well as PC and a few other systems), not the SNES. Also, the Ur-Quan(big green ship) are the bad guys, not the good guys(though you learn more about them if you play the sequel and find...they're not THAT bad, comparatively).

As >>3368898 said that's Star Control for the Genesis. It was a really, really shitty port of the game - it ran at something like 15 frames - and at this point you're better off pirating the PC game or downloading Star Control 2 for free at http://sc2.sourceforge.net/

Fuck no. A good part, not all, is memorisation in the worst kind of way. But I still liked it, just wished it had good music.

>A good part, not all, is memorisation in the worst kind of way

I'd argue only one of the shooter levels requires a lot of memorization, the one with the hordes of missiles and waves of enemies.

You can bust your way through most of the game with the spread shot or the bouncy shot.

You can mostly beat the bosses just by abusing the smart bombs, especially the green bomb or the blue super laser. Not only that but smart bombs recharge over time.

The only surviving "arcades" around me are in the lobby of movie theaters and the one "bar-cade" downtown. The movie theater corner-cades only have new games from Raw Thrills--so hard pass. But both of the Cinemarks do have the newer Stern pinball tables (transformers and Family guy, I believe) that are decent.

The barcade has older games--Joust, MS. Pac-man cocktail, MK 4, Terminator 2 light gun and a mid 90s midway pinball table-- along with a MAME cabinet or two. Sadly, it's been infected with EDM kiddos sucking down expensive shots, sorting adderall and listening to the shittest music possible over the game audio. I haven't been in a year now--wonder if my Joust score still reigns.

Thinly veiled CRT and emulation thread.

I had an old laptop with Windows 7 unoccupied, and I found an old VGA to S-Video converter collecting dust, so I turned it into an emulation machine for my CRT setup to cover the console I don't have and some older PC games on DOSBOX.

As it is, it 'just werks', but poorly. It's locked on 800x600 and a rather low refresh rate. It's playable, but the image is blurry. Kinda misses the point of using the CRT TV at all.

So I decided to research for a proper VGA converter (pic not related). Hopefully,...

How does a single RPG occupy your summer? I mean, even assuming you're working a full-time job, you'd think it would only eat up one or two weekends tops.

Just started playing Super Mario 64. Never had an N64, so I'm having a ton of fun with it now.

Problem is I expected there would be more things to collect and have a sort of inventory.

Anyone know of games with more of a focus on collecting things? And I don't mean only platformers, could be something like Resident Evil with an extended emphasis on inventory.

2 MB,
So, I recently got myself an N64, and picked up a few games at my thrift store, along with good condition copies of Mario 64 and Diddy Kong Racing for a decent price.

I almost have enough saved up to buy an SNES and some games for that, but I want your guys opinion.

What are some good tips for finding places that sell good condition older games, and some overall advice on what games I should be trying to get. I am fairly new to collecting retro stuff and could use some help.

Thanks.

You want my honest opinion? Stop "collecting" and start playing.

Or else one day you'll wake up with 17 different color N64s and 2000 games most of which are shit, and almost all of which you have never played.

If people spent less time at work saving to buy out all the world's stock of old games, and more time chilling at home actually playing the damn games we'd be a lot better off and happier in general imo.

The levels are pretty similar, so I'm going with the look and mood of the levels:

> Crash 1

The Lost City/Sunset Vista, Slippery Climb, or Lights Out/Fumbling in the Dark

> Crash 2

Ruination

> Crash 3

This game didn't have anything as good as the previous two, so this one is tough, as there's nothing that compares.

I guess the Arab levels were the nicest.

High Time was set in the evening, so it's the most aesthetically...
