Is this the best controller ever made? Why doesn't anyone ape the microswitched digital thumb pad? I've been using it (mostly for shmups and some platformers) and I don't think I could ever go back to a traditional dpad

Remember playing this as a child, it's a platformer called Reks. Can't find much info or a proper copy of it anywhere. It seems to be related to an anime called, "White Heart Baek-Gu". There is a Korean demo version online, but I would like to pay the full English version as I did back in the day. Help an autistic out.

Been recently playing stuff on both of these consoles through emulation, mostly Japanese exclusives. If you have any hidden gems on either console to recommend let me know /vr/. Try to avoid anything obvious like Rondo of Blood or the numerous arcade-perfect ports on Saturn, I also haven't found many translation patches for games on these consoles either making text-heavy Japanese games a no-go.

Looking for some help finding a DOS game I used to play as a kid.

I've recently been downloading old DOS games I used to play as a child for some nostalgia. But there is one game I'm struggling to find.

Here is all the info I can provide. This is all me trying to remember a game i played decades ago so its not all 100%.

I can't remember the title other than it possibly had a female name in it.

It was a game in which you played a girl who was a waiter or something at a drive-in or restaurant or something.

She was possibly on rollerskates.

As far as i can remember is was a top-down view and you would go through a maze or something to collect fast food or something.

Here is the other games i played for reference if that helps



Any info or help would be greatly appreciated.

Arcades were a bigger rip-off than DLC. They were a bigger rip-off than loot boxes. They were a bigger rip-off than ads in street fighter 5. Honestly the only practice in gaming that is a bigger rip-off than arcades is pay2win.

Consoles killed arcades for a reason. Burn in hell forever you pieces of shit.

Ehh... it was exciting to leave the house and be around other people with the same interest that you had. And to be able to socialize with them. It was about the experience. The sounds, the lights, the banter, the unique individuals that knew secrets and exploits and cheat codes, etc. Before the esports faggotry.

Arcades were for kids and teens what bars are to adults. Yeah.... you can sit at home and drink alone. But drinking with other strange, drunken people? That's where the interesting experiences come in.

It has the best RGB output, but its Composite is still ass. The LaserActive’s Genesis PAC has the cleanest Composite output of any Genesis model, which is a necessity for games that use dithering heavily to simulate transparency.
