Fighting Game General

Fighting Game General 9 posts and 1 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Alright, so this is sort of a new genre that I'm getting into. I've never particularly liked fighting games, let alone been good at them. But there's just something about a lot of the SNK fighters that just makes me want to keep getting better (Real Bout Fatal Fury and The Last Blade especially)

Suddenly, you can replace the Duck Hunt dog's laugh with somebody else's. What laugh do ya pick? Pic related.

I haven't seen much of these games discussed, just Wing Commanders. How did you feel about the X-Wing series as a whole? I really only grew up with the original and that was fucking awesome. Exploring the capital ships and doing various campaigns. I've always been interested in xwing vs tie fighter and finally got around to downloading it. My buddy was around so we could play it co-operative. It's exactly what I hoped for in a mid 90s space combat. Plenty of challenge and a fair variety, and the expansion pack even added story-esque missions which XvT was missing upon initial release. I never did play Tie Fighter or XWing alliance but I bet they hold up decently as well.

Hey /vr/ I figured you of all people would know: Is it better to buy a USB gamepad flat out, or rather, use a First Party gamepad (such as N64, snes, etc) WITH a USB adapter for my computer. What do you guys typically use? Thanks!

First person adventure games

First person adventure games 3 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
hey /vr/, Can you recommend me some good first person adventures? I really loved playing Shadowgate 64 as a teen (looking forward to Zojoi's ShaGa NES remake too) and recently I played and finished Echo Night by From Software which is pretty similar in a lot of ways. I love that kind of games. Games that make me think about what to do with my environment, putting levers into machines, figuring out word and number based puzzles, solving other riddles related to causality and time, going through labyrinths or similar maps. I really enjoy that. So what else is a must-play adventure title in your opinion? You may also recommend point and click adventures as they are something I can appreciate as well but there is just something about first person perspective in that games that make them a lot more immersive.

Can someone help me out? I am looking for a specific version of Tetris. I think it might have come as a default game on an apple pc with windows 95 or maybe 98. I cant seem to find any pictures of it.. The only distinct things about it i remember are that it had a max of 10 levels, increasing drop speed as you progress through the levels. I think level 7 had like a pinkish/black background and level 9 or 10 had a rainbow type background. Any help is appreciated!

So why did Shouzou Kaga leave Intelligent Systems? It seemed like they had a good thing going, but then he left and made totally-not-Fire Emblem for the PSX.

Let's test out knowledge of retro game sound and music. I'll post a short vocaroo clip of a sound from a game, and you guess what the game is. Feel free to post your own. I'll start: http://vocaroo.com/i/s0Fem1ejEU7q
Why is ghosts 'n goblins... 52 posts and 5 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Why is ghosts 'n goblins considered a classic? It's one of the worst designed games on the nes, it's more frustrating than fun, it has only one music track playing for the majority of the game, it has no continues or password system and it's full of randomized bullcrap enemy encounters. Yet it's in the top 200 best games on the NES and we still play it today. I still feel drawn to this game from time to time. Is it just the music? Is it the charm of the main character? Is it because we love the arcade version? What do you think? Feel free to disagree and leave your opinion.

So I've just encountered this. I plugged in my SNES for the first time in 6 months and decided to play some Super Metroid and Kirbys Fun Pak. The save files were intact from my last sitting thankfully. However, after I switched the console off and went back to both games, the save files were gone. Is this a cartridge battery issue or is it something to do with the console? I had to blow on the cartridge several times before it got working

KOTOR 2 problems w/ restored content mod

KOTOR 2 problems w/ restored... 5 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
I have a problem with KOTOR 2's restored content mod and have googled my way into a dead end. I need some help on this. I have completed Dantooine and Nar Shadaa. And I have found the datapad of the Jedi Knight that's heading to the droid planet, M478. I have both the restored content mod up to 1.8.2 and the M478EP installed, but I'm stuck, and none of my quests will continue. The problem I'm facing is that Kelborn on Dxun has not contacted me. I've run out of content to complete. I know the game well enough to know how to do everything. I'm waiting for him to tell me I have a message waiting for me. The game is failing to contact me to tell me to go back to Anderan. I've beaten every sidequest the game has offered up until this point. I cannot go back to Anderan. I need to figure out how to fix this bug. I'm at the very end of the game.

This is an amazing piece of technology. A GBA AV IN! Does anyone know where I can pick one up? I feel like there are a bunch sitting in a warehouse somewhere in Hong Kong.
