Hey Guys! I recently picked this monster up for $50 and I can't seem to find any real info about it anywhere. It's a dreamcast twin stick and it's actually pretty awesome, my wife and I love it. But why is this thing so hard to come by?

Say what you will, I think the Jaguar had potential. It wasn't gonna compete with Sega or Nintendo but it could have been decent with time.

Sup /vr/ I got a 'broken' Vectrex back in January and never figured out how to fix it. Today I fixed my Mega Drive so now I'm motivated and willing to give this another shot. Any idea why my Vectrex picture is so shitty and not connected? I shot a video showing what I mean exactly. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nQU7EVS3rho&list=UU3dpEsu_UykWMc9nPHdHwIg

Does anyone here collect video game merchandise, aside from the actual games? Shirts, tapes, weapon replicas, posters, etc? Pic related just came in the mail. I also have a Majora's Mask promo tape somewhere, but I couldn't find it when I was taking this picture.

So did LJN ever develop a single video game themselves or was every single game "made" by LJN simply developed by outsourced developer like Probe Entertainment or Beam Software and only published by LJN?

so most of my family members have all of the old hardware stored with them, from gamecube games to NES classics. I don't want to reconcile a generation's worth of life with them just to play the games on the original hardware, so should I just say screw it as an enthusiast and emulate everything or play them the way they were intended?

Really irritating how nearly everyone who knows about this game thinks it's bad because of AVGN. It's a fantastic game with a fantastic soundtrack. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mhMbBi9oE1Y 2010 discussion and general underrated NES games.

Hey everyone I'm a graphic designer and I'm doing and project on the original Playstation controller for one of my classes and I've gotta do a research paper on it before I get started working on any design work. Now, I know a shit ton about the history of the Playstation and a little bit about the design of the controller, enough to easily be able to knock out this paper. However, this assignment requires me to have 2 books about my subject. Basically, I just need some help finding BOOKS that talk about when Sony broke off from the SNES CD project to create the Playstation, any other relevant history about the Playstation, and accurate information about the hardware specs. I'd really appreciate this because I know all this shit, but I just need it to be cite-able for the assignment you know? Also any notable bits of info you have to contribute yourself would be helpful as well, just in case. I gave a mini presentation on why I picked the object so my teacher knows I have an extensive amount of knowledge about it's history so she knows a lot of this is coming straight from my head.

Hi /vr/. My GPU died on my PC. I have to resort to a 2002 Dell until I get enough money for a replacement card. I am having a nostalgic blast playing 90's FMVs and PnCs. Currently playing Phantasmagoria and Ripper. I'm looking for some good classics that can run on a P4. Inb4... >Phantasmagoria 2 >Return to Zork >Zork Nemesis >Zork Grand Inquisitor >Full Throttle >Sam & Max Hit the Road >The Monkey Island Series >The Dig >The X-Files >Leisure Suit Larry 1-7 >Kings/Space/Police Quest >Hell: A Cyberpunk Thriller >Myst >Runaway >Syberia 1&2 >Gabriel Knight Trilogy I have played all these popular titles. What are some other PnC/FMV games that I missed out on? Please and thank you.

Retro games that are good for learning new languages

15 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Seeing how we all game anyway, why not use it to improve on new languages? The problem with a lot of retro games is they have little or no text, for example Sonic and Mario. So, we are after games with a good story or quite a lot of text, for example, the Zelda series tends to be a good choice because there is loads of dialogue. For the N64 era, there is the added detail of descriptions of enemies from your fairy, as well as cutscenes. For the less advanced learner, I would like to recommend Fantastic Dizzy. Although it has no dialogue, the reason it is good for a beginner is because of the equipment screen, which provides little descriptions of the location and inventory items, pic related. Because it is only providing descriptions of what you can see, and the sentences are always relatively simple, I think it is an excellent way to start at improving vocabulary and understanding of the chosen foreign language. Also, there is a version for the Genesis which has Cosmic Spacehead on the cart, which I think is also good for the beginner, but is somewhat more advanced than Dizzy because there is more dialogue and, once you have an item, there are no longer any visual cues, unlike Dizzy. One downside to learning through games, that I have come across, is there are very few with foreign voice acting, so listening skills can't be improved. So, if anyone knows any retro games that have any voice acting done, bonus points for that. tl;dr suggest games with potential for language learners, or just please suggest games which have a lot of dialogue and narrative.
