Where to download PC games

Hey /vr/ I'm looking for a site to dl some retro PC games for free. I've tried isozone but a lot of the links are dead.

I just played this remake for the first time. I've ignored the Mario Advance games up until now because... well, most of them are just barebones ports with voices and original Mario Bros. added in... But this one is actually a surprisingly good remake. Some of the differences I really liked about it: - Killing more than one enemy with a single throw gives you hearts. Health was very rare in the NES version and it made that game kind of unfair later on. - There are giant versions of some regular enemies, and killing them gives you a heart. - The koopa shell actually bounces off walls now instead of disappearing. It makes it more risky to use because it can kill you, but it also gives you a heart for every enemy you kill with it. - Every stage has 5 "A" coins, similar to the Dragon coins in SMW, which gives the game some extra challenge if you feel like collecting them all. - There are stationary heart pickups before bosses and at certain hard sections, but they become less frequent at later levels to keep the difficulty going up at a fair pace. This game is a terrific improvement over the original SMB2.

So I'm new to MAME emulation, I tried my hand at it like a decade back, and got a few games to work, but for the most part was totally fucking confused by all the CHD files and bios shit. I've never had a problem emulating any home console but for some reason I just couldn't get my head around mame. Can you guys help me out? Last time I tried I picked up chd files for like 20 games and only about 6 of them worked, and I had to download the rom and them some background file that was gigs in size or something. Honestly I'm not retarded, I just could never find a quickstart guide to this shit. And the last time I tried I was like 17 and a dipshit. tl;dr: where do you get everything you need to get MAME working. I wanna set up some 4-6 player arcade games (simpsons, x-men tmnt,), and some radiant silvergun.

Was Gex really a failed mascot like people say? He seemed pretty popular alas not every series has dozens of games.

Have you ever had any negative or positive experiences involving younger people and retro games? My daughter is elementary age so I decided to let her start playing games. I've been collecting since high school so I have a nice sized collection by now.. She prefers 32 bit over 16 but has never whined.

So, how about it /vr/? How did you do tonight? Only one medal tonight. I'm pretty ashamed, but I am a bit rusty.

Has there ever been a game with a better combat system than Hybrid Heaven? I don't think so!

Gonna sell this electric blue n64 with a few unboxed games. What can I expect to get for it? I'll post a few more shots of the games.

So, I got around to playing Bedlam again. I was probably 10 when I first played it and it was always such fun to set the whole game map on fire. It is almost an unsung classic to me. What does /vr/ think of it?

I found $100 outside my house in the street. What old ass pricey game should I blow it on? I have most systems. Leaning towards KiKi KaiKai on SFC so far.

Hey /vr/, besides pic related, what are some good side-scrolling platformer shooters? Even if the shooting part comes secondarily and not quiet as the main appeal of the game, like Metroid for instance.

New to JRPG

10 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Hi /vr/ . I am planning to play more JRPGs after completing Chrono Trigger like final fantasy , phantasy star , shinning force etc . However , one thing is hindering me to start me - the fear of getting stuck . I don't want to consult a walkthrough , only to learn it's too late and have to start over after investing a huge time . My question is - Is it possible to get into really nasty blockade or most of them can be by-passed without going back too long ?

Super Mario 64 on 64DD

Few days ago, a guy by the username of Jimmy130, found a very rare Super Mario 64 Disk to use on a 64DD http://64dd.net/modules/news/article.php?storyid=235 http://www.gamekult.com/blog/jimmy130/311446/photos-64dd-super-mario-64-disk-version.html (The second one is in French) How do you guys feel about it? Is it good? bad? fascinating?

my Commander Keen mods

MY COMMANDER KEEN MODS! I made two Commander Keen mods recently as a bit of a hobby. one is the sequel to the other, about the commander keen character being grown up. You need to play them in Dosbox (www.dosbox.com) and just run the .bat files to get them going. anyways, here they are: Episode 58: Ruin of Roib: http://www.shikadi.net/wiki/files/Mods/Keen4/m.bernie.the_ruin_of_roib.k4.2013-07-01.zip Episode 59: Underworld Ultimate!: https://www.dropbox.com/s/nwnf6xis8u4m116/Keen59-Underworld%20Ultimate.zip Quick note that Underworld Ultimate is buggier than the other one cause i havent debugged it much yet.

Would the video game industry have been different if the PS1 was never made? Or what if the PS1 was indeed made, but it turned out to have been a failure on the same level as the 3DO?
