I’ve recently developed the concentration and patience to play through JRPG’s and it turns out I really love them. So far I’ve beat DQ11, Tales of Symphonia, and am halfway through Tales of Abyss and I’m curious what other JRPG’s are considered “must play” from the previous generations? I’m gonna play Vesperia after Abyss, but after that I don’t have anything lined up except Chrono Trigger.

Rhapsody (I would recommend this more if the 2 other games in the series were translated, but afaik they're still not)

There's a lot more but these are my personal picks. I'm not really an FF fan outside of Ivalice stuff, and was never a DQ fan. I think they're both overrated franchises, but you might want to try some of them anyway.

to be fair to westerners, the main series effectively skipped them for nearly a decade through DQX not getting released.

You’re probably right. Nintendo has a habit of cutting corners on specs in order to keep prices low. It’s worth pointing out that the GC launched at $50 less than the PS2 and Xbox.

>> No.7884923

>The main reason was the underwhelming sales of both the N64 and GameCube.
Which was a factor of it being perceived as a kiddie system by consumers. PS2 and Xbox appealed more to teenagers and older gamers so Nintendo went for the approach of making something that appeals to nongamers since they weren't able to break that image.

For some reason, Nintendo only put their best anti-piracy protection on the games they ported to the GBA from the NES library, even though the NES library has been emulated for such a long time. Either get an accurate emulator or if your flash cart lets you, set the save type to EEPROM.


>> No.7884274 [DELETED]

>> No.7884317

To be fair, the GBA versions aren't straight ports. Besides adjusting the sprites to fit the screen, they did things like fix typos (Ganon is no longer "Gannon"), adjust AI (Dark Link in Zelda 2 can't be cheesed by squatting in the corner), and reinstate features (Castlevania has the stage replay from the FDS release). I imagine they put in plenty of anti-hacking measures underneath it as well.

I've not found any examples of these right-side drive cars actually being sold in Japan, despite their manufacture for other markets. The ones that I have seen mentioned as being sold as right-hand drive was Jeeps. Admittedly, this could also be a product of their own weak sales; I have read that GM has, as of a few years ago, largely restricted their sales of cars in Japan to certain "special" models that might appeal to the rare Japanese US auto enthusiast. Given the lack of sales this would naturally bring with it, it's unlikely they'd then do separate construction for them, especially given that being "unique imports" is likely another selling point to this unusual customer.

>> No.7884907

If I recall correctly, in Ace Attorney 2, in the Japanese version, the case with the girl pretending to be her sister, the Japanese version made it a point that the car was an American car so she was driving in the opposite side for the sake of the contradiction in her testimony.
This go localized in the US as "an European sportscar".

The subject I guess says it all.

I was interested in an XBOX back in 2018 because I heard it had a lot of good games not on PlayStation 2 (PS2 was the only console I had until getting an Xbox, besides a Nintendo DS I replaced my GBA with but some people don't count handhelds as consoles so idk)

But the Xbox has tons of interesting games not on PlayStation 2 or GameCube or anything. Riddick, Brute Force, Star Wars Republic Commando, Mechassault and of course Halo. Halo was my main reason for getting one. And it was worth it I adore Combat Evolution. One of my all-time favorite video games. I couldn't help but get the next one, Halo 2. To say the least, it's incredible. More guns than the first Halo game, you can hold 2 guns at once and use them simultaneously, you play as a Covenant Elite in some chapters and it has a universe-building story that allowed Halo to have more lore like books and such.

>>Ron Perlman: "Master Chief, mind telling me what you're doing on that ship?"
>>John 117: "Sir, finishing this fight."

The game ended before I knew it. Made me waste money on an Xbox 360 the following year just to play more Halo games. I know 360 isn't retro but I'll say, I don't like it. Piece of shit console. Can't do much with it. Unimpressive. I had to waste money on a shit console just to continue the Halo story. I wish there were at least a couple more Halo games on the first XBOX. Like, have a third game that continues off from Halo 2's ending, and one spin off of some sort. It'd have made sense if there were more Halo games on the first Xbox, it was the main attraction of the console. I mean, there's a dozen Star Wars games on the XBOX and a bazillion Tom Clancy games so why the hell not more Halo games?

Better yet Microsoft should've waited a few years to release the Xbox 360. I'd have given the original Xbox more time because it's a damn good console. Shouldn't be replaced so soon, let alone with a shitty console like the 360.

I'm amazed how well the PS3 holds up as a media device even today. In some ways it's actually better than the PS4. Booting up the 360 today feels like a toy in comparison. Except for the controller.

>> No.7884828

Well, the official 360 controllers ran on AA batteries while official PS3 controllers had charged batteries.
Also, the PS4 seems like a pointless console. I never owned any 8th gen consoles but I have thought about getting them later when they're not supported anymore and I can get them for less than $100 at Pawn Shops or something. Most of the PS4 games don't sound interesting to me if I'm being honest and I heard PS4 isn't backwards compatible which fucking sucks balls. If anything I might get a Switch despite not being a fan of Nintendo, to jailbreak it for it's GZDoom port so I have a console to play Doom Wads/Dehs on.
