Modding Thread anon 09/16/2022 (Fri) 11:12:08 No. 19 [Reply]

I have a base ps4 with a databank mod on it which is pretty much just a mod to allow using 3,5" HDDs as internal storage .It's also very cool since the design conforms to the base ps4 design. That might not sound too retro but I use it to play retro stuff as well and it is a lightly modded console so I think it belongs here.

ITT: spooky games for halloween anon 09/12/2022 (Mon) 12:37:40 No. 13 [Reply]
Hey /vr/, I started playing the PS1 Residen Evil games during Halloween last year. Finished 1&2 and absolutely loved them, took some time to get used to the controls but it was totally worth it, didn't expect to have this much fun. This year I will probably play RE3 and Nightmare Creatures. Also kinda want to play Shadowman, but I think that one takes longer so perhaps I will postpone that to next year. Are you guys planning to play any spooky games on Halloween? Which ones? Also feel free to recommend any spooky games in here!
>>13 the torso spreader thing still creeps me out today lol
>>13 Very nice OP. I went through REmake back in 2014 and really loved it, I was waiting for the eventual REmake 2 so I didn't play RE2 until the last week before the REmake 2 came out. I had a blast going through it in one 8 hour sitting in a cold, dark January afternoon to night (pic related, terrible shader looking back but it's how I played it) just before starting up REmake 2 five days later, both are tied for my favourites in the franchise. How are you playing them? RE2 and RE3 have A LOT of different versions and changes. RE2 especially. If you're going to play RE3 I'd say look into the Gamecube version as it has an actual zbuffer for all the models so they're not warping (unless you like that), 480p background and some other stuff. This was also my favourite theme: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5KEHOU3ChN8 >Are you guys planning to play any spooky games on Halloween? Sadly, no. I only ever did that once back in 2019 when I went through Castlevania Lament of Innocence in one sitting on Halloween literally for that reason. Really good game, felt like DMC1 mixed with a metroidvania and was pretty fun. The start was a bit boring due to how easy all the enemies are but it picks up as you go through it. Had a cool subweapon system, everytime you killed a boss you'd get an orb that you could use to "upgrade" your subweapon to do different things, five different sub weapons along with five different orbs meant you could have around 25 different weapons to use in the game which is quite cool. I stuck with the axe throughout though since it was super powerful. Although the MP system was a bit shit and I never used magic much. I felt Lament was much better than Curse of Darkness which felt incredibly boring to play by comparison due to all the mindless running around you do in that castle. My favourite theme from that game as well: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jZLRnQqEyt0

A JP exclusive horror adventure game,there's an English patch available since last year. >Castlevania: Symphony of the Night One of my favorite games. I still have my save file from back when I first played it but enough time has passed so I figured now is a good time to revisit it. >Also feel free to recommend any spooky games in here! This is a JRPG but since you enjoyed the Resident Evil games I think you might like Koudelka. Don't let the 4 Discs intimidate you,it's not a very long game.

>>13 The last old horror games I got into were Parasite Eve, Dino Crisis, and Fatal Frame 2. I enjoyed all three a lot. I supposed FF2 is a bit on the newer side, but its almost been 20 years. I love the camera mechanic, really unique game.
>Shadow Man I've been playing this recently for the first time (the remaster), and I'm enjoying it a lot more than I thought I would (I only played the sequel back in the day which was pretty dull and average from what I remember). I'm "only" about 15-20 hours in, but I can recommend it if you like the sound of a vast, non-linear, labyrinthine, exploration-oriented, horror-themed 3D metroidvania-style platformer. And if the blood and guts don't scare you, getting totally lost in a deep, branching network of disorienting and claustrophobia-inducing corridors and a seemingly-neverending series of interconnected rooms with multiple exits that all seem to lead to completely different areas with a new set of paths will!

Best retro MMO. Anyone playing on Ephinea?

>>125 Always wanted to try PSO, as a kid I wanted the Gamecube version so I could get a Tails chao in SA2:B, and now as an adult just to see how it'd run on a Dreamcast in 2022 and if it'd be fun, never played an MMO before so having my first be something like PSO might make me gloss over the outdated aspects of the game. Will probably have to look into it eventually if I do go through with it one day.
>>125 I've actually set up a private server for this game, although it only lasted around a month and I didn't have a lot of time to play on it. You can set up a local server pretty easily, just download the game off of archive.org.

The remake is out, did anyone here play this?
I have not played it but I definitely will. According to a Twitter post by someone affiliated with the game (can't exactly remember who) it's 100% uncensored. I've heard it contains some freaky shit, really looking forward to playing it. Although I don't think it's a remake, just a remaster.

>>122 its the very first text based game, it was released in 1976 by one of the fathers of the internet, Will Crowther, he relesed it for the PDP-10 mainframe computer. In the game, the player explores a cave system rumored to be filled with treasure and gold. The game is composed of dozens of areas, and the player moves between these areas and interacts with objects in them by typing one- or two-word commands which are interpreted by the game's natural language input system. The program acts as a narrator, describing the player's location and the results of the player's attempted actions. It is the first well-known example of interactive fiction, as well as the first well-known adventure game, for which it was also the namesake.

What is the best map and why is it CTF-Face?
It's DM-deck16][ without question. I always liked healpod as well, especially with a lot of players.
>>117 DM-Barricade is one of my favorites, I especially love the soundtrack.
