They are pretty ok in the grand scheme of things. As in, you might not have the most accurate sound on all of the games or even the ability to play them all (looking at you, Castlevania III), they usually can play PAL games too. Like the FC-Twin (NES/SNES combo), it can play PAL NES games no adapter needed. Confirmed with Mega Man anyway.

If you are intent on using your old carts, then they get the job done and basically look like the original but with cleaner video output. Retron is generally cheap and effective. Most people will never know the difference.

if you don't mind piracy, you may as well just emulate on a PC or a Pi.

Perhaps in the earliest version of OD&D when it was still a expansion for Chainmail, but certantly not in the eighties when vidya RPGs began to be developed in earnest. By that time you already have AD&D, Basic Roleplaying, Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay, Traveller and so on.

By playing the fuck out of it on N64, but for Wii I used a GameCube controller with 1.1 Honey as my controller style with auto-aim off and sight off screen.
I find that auto-aim and the sight tend to distract and take a bit more time, so I got good at that exact setting. Good luck, Agent Anon.

>> No.5961424

You get comfy when you find one that works for what you want. I think most people would be good with a 19-24 inch PC monitor +OSSC (or similar) and a 27-34 inch consumer set. One for solo and one for 'playing with the bros'

However even as much as I like CRT. Most of the time we end up playing on my OLED or projector when in a large group.

I understand the game has to end with you learning how deep everything runs. But up until this point there was an illusion of choice. Paul has no alternate path, no way to mitigate or even protest. He is immortal because the devs didn't want, didn't know or ran out of time to deal with your not wanting to screw yourself over on the word of a bleeding heart and his terrorist buddies. It tanked my desire to keep playing. I would of been fine with a betrayal, with paul setting me up to fall. Anything would of been better then having to pull the trigger myself

Human revolution doesn't have anything like this

>> No.5961357

The original is a simulated world robust enough that you can do basically whatever you want and it'll (mostly) keep on going; DXHR is more of a scripted experience that allows for some player choice. It's not like there's much advantage in pushing the simulation to its limits, but the fact that you CAN do that and not feel the hand of the game designer at every turn makes the original DX a much more immersive experience. Then again, I have a high jank tolerance, so the moments when it does crap out don't bother me so much.

That's why some publishers used more sophisticated methods for printing those listings (especially for machine code) like dedicated type-in programs with checkums
But something like that was also used for BASIC listings

It was nice that the programs (and games) worked the first time you typed them in, but somehow I missed looking at the program while typing it in. Especially to type-in machine language code was kinda cryptic and boring.

Sometimes having a fresh open mind helps you play better, it's easy to get set in your ways and stop being adaptable when doing a lot of runs back to back.
