What're you favourite things about this wonderful waste of a good thing? It really makes you wonder how different the console scene would be if sega hadn't fucked up so hard leading up to it

>> No.5525701

The games are fantastic. But they really should have used DVDs as the storage media and have it play video DVDs as well. The PS2 beat the shit out of it on those 2 points. An internal hard drive option would have been nice too.

>> No.5525728

The controller and the games; also the machine in general. I love the Dreamcast; but I donated my DC collection to goodwill recently when I needed to clean out some stuff at my parent's house. It's one of the few consoles I played so much that I don't mind emulating. The 'dreamcast feeling' is something I'll always have with me; it helps that a large amount of its best titles are on the 360/Xbone now.

Why are you on this board Zoomer? This game MADE FPS. Defined it as a thing. This game still has a cult following and community of modders despite being almost 30 years old. No game imo has come close to its survivor horror feel.

They're all charming in their own way. Well, Mario 1 feels darker than the later games, like most of the game is very industrial-looking, or dry-looking, but still elegant.
SMB3 is amazing, but I'd have to go with World, I think. Pure personal preference.

What did they mean by developing a game that consists literally every single black stereotype you can imagine (apart from watermelon and fried chicken)? Is it an offense, a parody, or just a completely failed attempt at "market research" targeted towards black audiences? What was it like back in the day in the USA oldfags of /vr/, did people of color play vidya as much as you did?

You'd be surprised to know that blacks design their own characters with the worst stereotypes in mind. Fat Albert and his friends were a group of trouble makers who lived in ghettos, they were fairly dumb, and most lived in poor families.

Can't you read dutch OP? They're demolishing bootleg games (aka repros as newfags call them), not original games that collectors would like to have.
The title being "games demolished by a road roller" and thus misleading as hell doesn't help.

Now whether that means that you shouldn't enjoy bootlegs or emulation for that matter is a completely different topic.

why the hell would they destroy original games? Obviously by "preservation" I meant piracy

I would be willing to take such a project, although we should first decide what we aim to do here. I can do pretty much everything when it comes to infinity engine modding and I'm rather used to it. If anyone wants a bunch of links to modding resources i can dump.
If there's actually anyone interested in this i'll post a discord invite since managing projects on this serbian lamprey fishing market BBS isn't particularly easy.

Anyone remotely interested in digitized fighting games has heard of Galloping Ghost and the pending release of its sole title "Dark Presence," but the story goes even deeper than what initial reports have covered. Based on a few queries into the Wayback Machine, production apparently started in December, 1998. From the images that survived, an early version was apparently in development and then scrapped sometime around 2005/2006:

It is a serious undertaking for one man to do all the programming, but it seems little, if any, progress was made from the time production started. Absolutely no footage of gameplay surfaced and the new site is riddled with dead links. Even with the apparent success of the Galloping Ghost Arcade (if their social media presence is any indication), completion and release of Dark Presence do not appear to be forthcoming.

What's very interesting is that Galloping Ghost solicited for prospective investors as early as 2000:

Does anyone have more info on this? This is too damn interesting to pass up.
