7800 had ballblazer and ninja golf.
I don't know much about the 5200.
>>
To put it in simple terms for this thread, discounting discrete (inferior) arcade ports there's only a literal hand full of exclusives for either platform period. The 7800 is probably slightly more worth having assuming you have an Atari 8-bit computer already like an XEGS or also if you have zero Atari systems and only want one.

it's probably as bad as the original game. Maybe a little worse due to bugs with a new engine.

This. I feel like Daggerfall is an incomplete game. A new engine could bring the possibility of expanding the game. Rather than that, we got the old DF with better graphics and planes.

Anyways for Daggerfall Unity, it looks good, hopefully they'll continue development and make it more bug-free and stable. Based on the videos I just saw about it, there were clipping and other minor tech issues

they should also do a retro-faithful demo instead of featuring new engine stuff, since it's mostly nostalgiafags that loathe dos that are gonna check it out

it's got potential/10

49 KB,
Posted this on /v/ earlier but it didn’t get much traction. I played the mobile version of Redshift’s ‘The Quest’ and really enjoyed it. I’m looking for another similar game to scratch my RPG itch and I’d appreciate it if any suggestions are thrown my way. I do have some preferences:

>Blank slate PC, ideally silent

>No team/party

>Challenging and fair

>Decent writing

>Good soundtrack

The Quest is mostly based on the Might and Magic games. I recommend 4+5 or 6.
But those have parties so if you really don't want that then I guess try Ultima Underworld maybe?

So I decided to play this on a whim and I cannot for the life of me understand why I cannot trigger the Wizard Quest at the guild, I did everything just finished Lefia Reunion but nope nothing.
Could it be because I spoke to Lefia at the Inn and got that item for the sealed dungeon?

Also while I am at it did anybody else trigger the safe spot spot for Daruk Golem? I destroyed the poor bastard despite only doing about 7 damage per hit.
>>
>>3679807
In this series of games when you don't get a quest to trigger it always means that you missed some clue or failed to finish one of the tasks before it

In Dark Law I seem to recall there were a few things that were very easy to miss, like finding the pendant, and almost all the quests have different variations on how to end them, and changing the result of one quest will alter what happens in another one down the line locking you out of certain possibilities.

Basically, you gotta restart
>>
>>3680131

I didn't miss any quests, but from what i read this quest was a sequel to the one called Sorcerers daughter.

I did everything including reading the homonculus letters and putting those freak shows in the basement out of their misery, Except the last one who I was able to speak with but he said something like "Oh leave me alone il go nuts soon " so I locked the door when i was leaving. Went up and the doctor died scenario over received XP.

Could that have been it?

That didn't take long. They're idiots not to have put it in a model 1 shaped case though, even regular sized.

What I think is that it has a dirt cheap composite-to-hdmi upscaler slapped onto it and it'll have all the ass of a FireCrore PLUS lag from the upscaling.

I mean, most of us understand this is a troll thread but somebody should still say it. Get a Wii instead.

So my BSGP Buffalo has arrived from Japan.
The building quality is pretty good. I love the material of the pad, it feels like a combination of silicon and plastic, which is great for those who tend to have sweaty hands.
The d-pad is quite good. Not Hori tier good, but very respectable for it's quality and it's precision.
You can use programmable macro combinations, the controller needs a software which is also included with the package.
Now there are some downsides too. First of all, it is remarkable small. Perhaps not for midgets, but seriously small. The face buttons are a lot more close to each other than it should be. Don't expect to pull out fancy combos in fighting games with this controller.
The L2-R2 are a big downside. Unlike most other ones, they aren't properly designed, and you will have issues with the grip overall.
In general, don't go for it, unless you have small palms, so it's ideal for people from 10 to 15, or for girls.
I guess I would had called it a bad investment if my girlfriend didn't like it and chose to use it instead.

>The L2-R2 are a big downside. Unlike most other ones, they aren't properly designed
Apparently some controller designers seriously believe that people use their middle fingers exclusively for L2 and R2 I've run into pads that exhibit this design myself. It has six face buttons though so do you really need four shoulder buttons?
>>
>>3679446
OP here. Well, there are some controllers with L2-R2 and six face buttons, like hammerhead, which are properly aligned and placed. And I'd say it is better to at least have the option to remap the buttons as you like, for example I know a few people who prefer six face buttons for fightings, and L2/R2 for everything else.

Continuation:
Games i liked:
MGS(duh), Syphon filter, Fear Effect, Abes odysse/exodus, Medievil, Crash Bandicoot, Spyro the dragoon1-2

Average/nice:
Resident evils, Countdown Vampires, Croc, Gex, Spyro 3, Lucky Luke, Silent Hill, Space Police

Shit/meh:
Parasite Eve, Dino Crisis, Tomb Raider 3, KKND, Crow:City of Angels

Can't dish out 40 h of gameplay into another JRPG, so they are not included here. Any help anons? Would jump to PS2 but too weak of PC to emulate.

When i was little, i used to have this crappy promotional gamey thing. It had some very simple games on it. Tetris, a car's game where you have to dodge, snake... And then there was this game. It was about what I think were spaceships. They were shaped like a Y. On the first level, you were against some ships like yours. You just had to shoot them from the side or behind, if you put in their line of fire, you lost a life. And then, oh boy, there was the second level. Suddenly you were facing a humongous spaceship, it was invulnerable, or at least I didn't discover...

These things were everywhere when I was a kid. I'm quite sure the Y-shaped things were tanks.
I don't think the games themselves had names but the machine itself was often called Brick Game. I remember the large tank but I can't find evidence that it existed, it was probably a different version since these came with tons of variations of each game, because 9999 in 1.

It was called WW because it was plopped in at the last minute when the original WW was too big to fit in the shitty 2k or whatever we had. You shoot the edges of the mother ship not the middle where, as you know, you get ass raped. Lost the source in 92 when every flip shit kalok drive in the office died at the same time.

I'm having problems with my arcade machine. the brightness is supposed to high on MAME, I adjust it, but every time I quit a game and start another one the brightness and gamma go back to what they were.

it looks like the backlight is set too high though, which you're not going to be able to set lower if you do it on mame.
