An important thing that must be remembered, since particular companies go out of their way to remove Roms from existence of games they will never go back to thus depriving people of a chance to experience them.
This goes double for games that were never translated and thus you only ever had a chance to play through fan-translation-patches. Anyone have personal stories when it comes to that? Live A Live was mine, in the process became one of my favorite rpgs now. https://fantasyanime.com/legacy2/live_about.htm

>>419448 >PS2 game You either used a toaster of a PC, or you misconfigured the emulator. I was playing PS2 games on emulators as far back as 2007 or so. I remember the huge jump in speed when they made it multicore capable, after the first dual core Athlon 64 X2s came out; Disgaea finally ran at full speed.

>>419411 Terraria is a sandbox platform game where you explore a complex world with different biomes (Underground, Snow, desert, ect) and each of these biomes have their oun unique set of bosses and enemies. there are over 15 chalanging bosses, each one unique. You can build amazing large structures, become the champion by defeating the moon lord, and explore you're world. Dig, fight, explore. And Terraria's motto is "The world is your canvas"
>>419412 sandbox platform game, uh, okay. Platform as getting past a bunch of pre-made traps, or platform like in Metal Slug where you gun down everyone while doing so? The whole worldbuilding crap does not appeal to me.
Warhammer Non-Specific: a thread for all things Warhammer. From fantasy to 40k. Vidya to roleplaying. Post it here. Especially miniatures. If you have 'em, post 'em. Other peoples cool models is fine too.
Since someone wanted a Doom thread lets get one read in preparation for Eternal, this is a haven for all Doom related discussion or posting of music and images.
Random thought; you gotta feel bad about the Elite Guards from Doom 2016 that serve as a source of upgrades for the player. They were cyborg super soldiers and the best chance on the base at fighting off the demons, but because they were such badasses their cybernetics included a kill switch in case of mutiny... which meant they were easily killed off by the same person letting the demons in.
You never see any of them possessed and their bodies are in much better condition than other corpses, just slumped over in pools of their own blood.
Panzer Paladin is a good retro platformer where you're a super fighting android piloting a giant robot armed with various destructible melee weapons you can break to cast spells.
In-game there's actually an editor that lets you design and stat out weapons pixel by pixel which then can be dropped by minibosses.
Also you can jump out of your mech to fight on foot with a laser-whip, its required for some sections where you use the whip to swing between hooks but it can also come into play when the robot gets taken out of action like in a boss fight, possible to continue on foot and win.
Looks like Steam Summer Sale dates have been leaked, and they're a bit early compared to previous years: http://www.ign.com/articles/2015/05/29/steam-summer-sale-2015-dates-leak >The Steam Summer Sale will begin on June 11 and last until June 20, according to a prematurely-revealed social post. Funny gif that is too big to upload here: http://media.giphy.com/media/3oEduNiXJuU6biIYda/giphy.gif
>>419197 That's the entire idea, by making buying as easy as possible and making big ass sales several times a year, they are making you spend more. Because if you see a good sale, your first reaction is to impulse buy it, and by making it so easy to spend money they prevent you from second guessing yourself.
It's why I refuse to install banking apps on my smartphone or use bank cards to pay. It stops me from impulse buying and forces me to think about what I need the most with whatever cash I have. I only use bank cards to pay when I'm doing a necessary purchase and out of cash. As for banking apps, that's just a recipe for financial ruin.
They've been making marketing tricks like that since forever. A classic example is pricing everything *99, because 499 looks cheaper than 500.
But the bigger issue is after all these years I'm burnt out on videogames, even games I've looked forward to for long periods of time waiting for them to get out of early access I'll buy when they are on sale for an appropriate sum... then find myself no longer so entranced to start them anymore.
