Hi /vr/, I just got an snes in the mail that I bought last week on ebay. Now I can't get it to work. It might be my shitty tv (got it for free on craigslist), but I can get a DVD player to work, so I think it might be the multi-out cord on the snes. It didn't come with an RF type cord. I live on the border of Oakland and Berkeley, is there any body nearby that has a snes and crtv, and can help me troubleshoot?

>having an interesting discussion on the tropes of many retro games, with also some references to modern games >janitor takes it down Whelp, time to never have a good discussion about that aspect of video games again since the other video game boards are generally shit.

Guys who have multiple consoles set up on one TV is there any reason why a TV wont display a console if i ran a composite through a euroconnecter in to the scart But works perfectly fine if i plug the three composite in the the TV's composite? I want to set up all my old shit on a multi scart box but non of the composite consoles IE "snes, / genesis / n64 work when using an euroconnector to plug them through a scart box but they work just fine if not in scart. Pic related, I'm using a bunch of them, oh and the start box works fine with my dreamcast

Looking for obscure older games

6 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
I am talking about older really off the radar games and ones that seem almost broken or just plain pointless to play. Looking for ones that can be emulated easily or play via flash or PSN/XBA Pic related Don't really want RPG's just games that can be played in short bursts and completed.

What's the best way to play real PS1 disks on a HDMI-only TV? PSOne + converter box? PS2? I never owned any of the playstation consoles and I want to order bunch of classic ps1 discs and check out what I missed

Is there a list somewhere of GB and GBC games that don't function properly on emulators? I know of one such instance in Wario Land 3 that prevents you from climbing a ladder if you attempted load a save-state at some point.

How about a good /vr/ 3D fighters thread? I've kind of avoided 3D fighters for a long time because I'm a 2D snob and thought 3D was mostly button mashing, but I'm starting to warm up to them.

Yo, I've been tasked to quess games from the list of 10, I got stuck with those four. Answers from previous questions were all retro, so I can assume that the rest will be the same, but I can't say for sure. Up to now I can say that: 1. I've been thinking about Transformers, but it has to be pre-movie game (according to wiki there are plenty), too much for me. 2. I thought of Ocarina of the Time, Link was awaken in the night and send to fight evil. But I don't remember if he had to hurry and catch up with the fight? It's very popular thing in movie/games where our hero is waken and go to fight. Hell, even in Pokemons hero does that. 3. No idea whatsoever. 4. Perfect example of this is Earthbound, however it had its release in Europe in July last year, through Wii online store. I found also a game Commander Keen that kind of fits here, but this Earthbound is like 100% if only without release thingy. I had fun quessing the previous 6, if you want to know previous questions I can write them.

I need help identifying a game for I'm pretty certain either Super Nintendo or Sega Genesis. Only ALMOST positive it was never localized in North America... The game was an (auto?) side scroller where the character you played as ran along the bottom left side of the screen and you aimed a reticule around the screen to 'snap photographs' of various shit going on in the stages for points. One level might have been like a fair or some shit, with clowns or some shit. Specifically remember some graffiti on a wall in the background of an urban stage that simply said "FUCK", or at least looked dangerously close, which is one of the reasons why I'm sure the game was never localized. Anybody have ANY idea what game this is?

/vr/ ive recently gotten into ps2 emulation after practically playing every snes, dos, ps1, n64 and dreamcast game under the sun I was wondering if you guys had any recommendations, I just recently beat way of the samurai 1 and 2 as well as a few dynasty warriors, dokapon kingdom, steambot chronicles, and darkstone I am into any genre but would like something not very well known as i probably played every damn "greatest hits" game when i was in college would really love something with a lot of replayabiity like an awesome strategy game or a rogelike but any recommendation will do for me

Why has /v/ taken over /vr/? Fucking millennials. Back in the 80s when NES was released it was the most fun ever, but it wasn't serious business. If Roger Ebert had done his "video games aren't art" back then, no one would've had the hissy fit they did. /v/ is a bunch of hysterical women, or maybe you're trans. ever think about it? Now watch this thread get deleted bcuz: srs bsns.
