>>2948870 >>2948875 >Retro gaming means consoles, computer games, arcade games (including pinball) and any other forms of video games on platforms launched in 1999 and earlier. It's obviously not retro. But it is relevant to this board since it was actually released on a platform. I don't know why you retards have such a hard time grasping even the most simple concepts.
Seemed promising before turning into a mediocre JRPG that gets too much credit simply due to nostalgia bait.
"A love letter to the 16-bit era"
Had some cringeworthy lines here and there that I'll admit I allowed to affect my perception of the game more than they should but it's not bad. There's not too many JRPGs for the Genesis and I'd say it did a good job at being that.
They got some really great music out of the system for this one, but kind of failed on the graphics front. And I don't mean the way it looks, it looks all right. But the slowdown and framerate are in the dumps. You wouldn't think this matters in an RPG, but it does, it means the random battles take a ton of time because the animations are so slow.
>>2948893 We try to maintain a delicate balance between quality posting and 4chan on this board. We are on 4chan, yes, and that's part of why I like this place, so you should expect to see "faggot" and "REEEEEEE" from time to time. But this board is unique in being on of the most civil and informative on 4chan, and I hope we can all do our part to keep it that way.

Not him but as a long time 4chan frequenter and someone who visits many different boards, you're either knowingly making shit up or don't actually know what you're talking about. /vr/ is currently one of the most hostile boards. It's shitposting and trolling is worse than /v/ these days. No exaggeration and no joke.
Not that we should listen to that guy and all act like flaming retards just because we're on 4chan.
What an awful thread. Anyways, I didn't see much love for the Pier Solar, I see it being called mediocre, like >>2948884 said, and I don't understand why there was made "Mega CD enhancement", like they couldn't make a Mega CD release.
>>2948918 In terms of overall hostility? /v/ for one. Seriously. That's how bad the shitposting here has gotten. In no small part to people like this >>2948923 who interject every thread they don't like with "fuck off to /v/" garbage posts. Then it just gets worse from there.
The reality is at this point, most of the other boards are more civil than here. /b/ and /pol/ are the worst for it. /int/, /adv/, /tv/, /mu, and /lit/ are the other bad ones. /vr/ is in with those these days.
>>2948932 Most of /co/ blames the movies more than the new cartoons. People can barely talk about actual comics there because it all gets reduced to the movies.
/tg/ is pretty great though, /ck/ has been getting better now that they've finally stopped fighting (as much) about vegans. /diy/, /an/, /out/, and shockingly /fa/ and /fit/ are all quite good as well.
Indie trash. Not to put anyone down for being ambitious, but there's a good reason why big budget games involve large staffs. Pier Solar is a mess of amateur writing, unoriginal and overused gameplay mechanics and overall uninspired designs.
It's like some goober just picked up a dev kit one day and went, "Hey, I'm going to put together the most generic JRPG experience I possibly can! Oh, and by the way, I have zero experience with writing, graphic design or gameplay planning."
It might as well have been a ROM hack of Phantasy Star. At least they wouldn't have lost any money on the deal.
I hate these threads. Seriously. Some dipshit shills their ROM hack or indie game on /vr/, gets criticized - or god forbid, called out for being a shill - and flips their shit. Suddenly it's, "Wah! /vr/ is such a hostile place! I just wanted everybody to circlejerk around me!"
You know, if you can't handle scrutiny, then don't ask for anyone's opinion in the first place. You're opening yourself up to criticism when you solicit our opinions. This isn't some hugbox where people are just going to line up to shower you in praises, no matter how boring or uninspired they may find your ideas to be. What you're doing is the literal definition of autism.
No. Fuck off. I would have no problem saying "Pier Solar is a great game" if it truly had the elements to be a great game, but it does not. It doesn't matter how many times you create this thread (and I count at least 4 other iterations of this discussion in the past several months) - your game sucks. It will always suck. The end. Count your losses and move on.
We've actually reached a point in time when teens born in 1997-1999 are acting nostalgic about their shitty ass childhood: Hannah Montana, Xbox 360, Wii, post-movie Spongebob, social media, Justin Bieber, Jonas Brothers, Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter, etc.
Don't even try to say that your childhood was good because it wasn't. Let me explain why…
You would have grown up in the 7th generation of video games. That was a time when games were declining fast. Let me name off some things all of you didn't experience:
- The years of Pokemon when it was actually good(1998-2000) - The time when the PS1, N64, SNES, and Genesis were the shit - The slew of amazing JRPGs on the SNES/PS1 - The golden years of Newgrounds(late 90s/very early 2000s) - The golden year of flash games in general(same timeframe as the golden years of Newgrounds) - The killer platformers of the 90s - LAN parties - The 1-3 years that Digimon and Yugioh were actually good(1999-2001) - The age of good 90s/early 2000s cartoons - instead, you got shit like Squirrel Boy, Ben 10, My Gym Partner is a Monkey, Camp Lazlo, and 6teen - The awesome FPS games like Goldeneye007, Perfect Dark, Doom, Quake, Duke Nukem 3D, and Star Wars: Dark Forces - A time before social media - The 1999 St. Louis Rams - Playing multi-player games with friends(Mario Party, ect.)
And there's plenty of more shit I could name, but I think you guys get the picture. The future of /vr/ is doomed if we let the youngfags win.
>>2949925 >Maybe I'm just old for 4chan's standards (26) >26 >old >also meaning you were born in 1990; when the 4th gen already kicked into high gear because of the Genesis/Mega Drive's release, which was in 1988, with the Super Famicom following shortly after
>>2949986 >Facts are facts. >my opinion is fact Can't wait for the time you try to defend the NES as "retro" from somebody born in the 70's who doesn't think it's retro because it came out after he was born/
If the rules weren't the way they are now, we wouldn't be able to discuss the majority of dreamcast games because they were released after 1999
hell, we wouldn't even be able to discuss a shitload of ps1 and n64 games either
the rules say we can discuss all games on retro consoles for a reason. it's easier to just say we can talk about games for these consoles instead of trying to evaluate each and every game that gets posted
if you don't like people discussing this SEGA GENESIS game, then just hide the thread and stop whining autistically about it
>>2949731 You don't LAN anymore? My guys do a lan party at least once every 3 months (used to be way more often but life and such) I'm bringing a guy from work who's 19
Also pokemon was never good, we thought it was because we were children and we were having fun (which really is all that matters).
SNES is still the shit, N64 was never really a good time (see above about pokemon). PS1 was but I never had it growing up so I don't have a boner for it. Genesis was cool but it wasn't the shit.
You realize that most of your stuff are things that can still be experienced today, right? I still play Doom and Quake to this day (we'll be playing it at the LAN next weekend)
It's comments like this that totally make me want to distance myself from my peers. You all start to sound like grandpas who fear change. Perhaps it's because I don't really see a big separation between 'games' and 'retro games' or at least being 'retro' doesn't imbue some special qualities to a game that make it better. No one is stopping you from enjoying your things, maybe you should let other people enjoy theirs.
>>2950171 Well in all fairness that was the reason I started the thread. I think these lines in the sand are really dumb so I thought I'd point out how they're dumb.
To those who think it's not retro because it's recently released then your 1999 date would exclude things like majoras mask, space channel 5, Banjo Tooie, Perfect Dark, SNK Gals' Fighters, Dragon Warrior Monsters, LoZ:OoS/OoA, Bomberman 64, Conker, ect.
I don't really have a problem with having a arbitrary cut-off cause it's totally necessary to have some agreed upon rule. Obviously with any rule you'll have people that either don't bother to read it or the just don't care and want to break it. At this point thought there seems to be a pretty large group that thinks the rule is dumb (I for one think it simply lacks enough definition, how does PC fall into the category?) and that's the point that it's time to consider the rule and what it's purpose is. If having it is causing this much trouble perhaps it's not doing what it's supposed to and should be adjusted to do it's job better.
Secondly, I think it really is the overly hostile method that people are throwing a fit if anyone shows up to the ball game with a bat made after 1999. I realize that's outside the bounds of the board but surely you're smart enough to know that that kind of hostility is only going to generate a backlash from people who in all honesty are just like you. They're people who play games and love games and want to talk about games. Sure they can go to /v but it's a whole different ball game there. They're keeping up with what's current, we're talking about memories of old. Seems pretty shitty to look down on someone cause their cherished childhood memories can't drive yet.
