Your only resort is on buying second hand games and systems with suspicious amount of life left. If Nintendo are so buttmad at pirates why can't they start producing the things people look for? All they did is emulators without cartridges and couldn't even bother to properly tune the games in the first place...

I don't understand the priorities of MAME devs.
Games like Mystic Marathon have had incorrect color issues known to them for over a decade, yet they're focusing on getting fruit machines and all-in-one pirate junk emulated instead.

I've already said I've beaten almost the entire thing so I'm not sure why you're talking as if I don't know all of this.
It's still not worth it to waste your time on the game. The opponents are specifically designed to fuck you over. It's one of the cruellest games aimed at children I've ever seen. It isn't fair challenge, it's bullshit artificial challenge, and that kind of dickheaded design isn't worth bothering with. And I probably would have said it wasn't worth it anyway because of how goddamn slow it is. The animations are nice and all but literally a solid 75% of your total playtime will be just watching them alone. The option to turn them off would have been really nice.
Don't waste 40 hours of your life beating the Stadium games. It isn't worth it. Just cheat and get those speedup functions in a minute. Your life is precious. Don't waste it away on games that have no respect for your time.

Kurko wasted this on a stand alone single world demo instead of making it one of the bonus areas in Jiggies of Time

Shoulda cut the snowy Mario 64 area or the Donkey Kong arcade bonus area and used this instead. At the very least this should be used for a future mod, these "one world" hacks have no merit.

For the context of when it came out, it makes a lot of sense. Super Mario Bros. was a legitimate phenomenon in Japan. People would play it for hours and hours even after they'd already beaten it just because of how much fun they had. There were also a bunch of secrets to find, warps, etc which kept people hunting after every secret had been found. The original game was pretty easy up until the final World, so all that time players spent gitting gud was mostly just exerted on speed running the game for the sheer fun of it. Then add in the Famicom Disk System, which Nintendo could use a killer app for, even if it's a rush job.
All this taken into consideration, Super Mario Bros. 2 was a totally logical step forward. Super Mario Bros. was a hit on Famicom, and with the extra power from the FDS, they could include Luigi as a playable character for some variety, allow players to save, and do stuff like wind effects on top of the existing game engine. The game was designed for those SMB pros in mind, you spent all that time mastering SMB just for the fun of it? Here's a game where you can truly prove yourself to be a master at the game. Plus, they used their knowledge of how people played SMB to do sneaky tricks like having warp pipes that take the player backwards, include Posion Mushrooms to show that looking for secrets is going to require the player be on their toes, etc. And for that audience, I'm sure it was nothing short of a success.

I have never actually played what is described by some as the greatest 16-bit RPG of all time, Chrono Trigger. But I am remedying that tonight.

Any tips or advice for a first time player? Does your character or monsters positions on the battlefield matter at all or is it just for show? I can't seem to be able to move my PCs except when they attack and that is automatic.

I have been grinding a bit and playing the games at the Millenial Fair but I haven't gone through the portal yet. I see that I could get a bronze helm and karate gi for Marle, I already have a bronze helm for Chrono but I see I could get a much better sword for him if I grind but it's getting a bit tiresome. Is it worth it to do this? Chrono and Marle are both level 3, I have seen it recommended to be level 5 before you go through the portal.

Also Chrono Trigger General, discuss the game, characters, tactics and lore
