Re: Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection

Had a go of this on the Switch. No big deal but 2nd Impact’s widescreen mode is inexplicably single-player only. No option on local VS. In the museum they’ve muddled some newer art in with older years, but overall it’s excellent so I’ll let them off. I played with an 8bitdo. The input lag is atrocio...

Re: "Retro" games with bad pixels

Geo, magic pixels. They overlap each other, rotate and shrink. Look at the dragon’s tail. It breaks the 240p wall. pseudo pixel nonsense. You know, in discussions of new retro releases like NGDEV’s the point always comes up that those are overhyped games that would be irrelevant if they weren’t runn...

Re: "Retro" games with bad pixels

I disagree. Neither looks good. One follows low-res limitations. Both are shortcuts. Rotation works in some low res cases but it has a horrendous effect on something like a 16x16 detailed face. Everything breaks. Reworking can take hours for each frame and then looks nothing like the base image and ...

Re: "Retro" games with bad pixels

I’ve noticed it’s quite common in pixel art style games these days. I frowned at first, and even Nathan did too. There’s sensible reason for it though. Low res rotation looks nasty and jumpy, I remember how horrifying the Deluxe Paint 3 Move effect was at first (and mode7 too tbh), and it takes a ma...

Re: ps classic mini

I don’t think it’s worth comparing value to stupendous collector prices. I do value legal roms but be realistic, they’re £5 eshop games bundled with a discount.

The SNES mini is better because the games are better and the emulation is better and the price is better and Oh Nintendo.

Hi,
I was having fun with Commodore hardware for a long time, a year ago I discovered arcade cabinets are fun too!

Re: Ever gotten a highly anticipated game and been disappointed?

I’m not a lover of Mortal Kombat but liked MK2 enough for a laugh back in the day. Can’t speak for the gameplay but Mortal Kombat X is the only one to have raised my eyebrows since. From the brief few matches I watched I actually do remember the finishing moves. I honestly thought the broken jaw sel...

Oh yeah, I forgot about that table showing an extremely unlikely amount of 800 point bonuses*. That pretty much squashes my accidentally-emulated excuse for him. *[edit] Which is a few posts up :palm: Erm, what’s that table showing exactly?

Re: Billy Mitchell's a cheat.

From what I’ve gathered the faked tapes claim is nonsense for a lot of reasons. However I think it’s always been very possible he’s played on emulators in the past without even realising it. This is his best character defence that I can think of. Every dubious thing he’s said on the matter could be ...

Is CPS2 not something between, like 12:7 widescreen.
Only when it’s displayed 1:1 with square pixels (wrongly).
