    Whoa whoa. I think I'm just using scale2x but it's going through a 2-pass render to tone it down/sharpen in RetroArch. No big deal. Excuse me for trying to slightly smooth text that I'm sitting 2 feet away from. Is this the pixelated shit you prefer?

    Fucking hell, I can still remember how much Snatcher grabbed me. That game was how cinematic should be done. Still got Policenauts on my list tho. Anyone knows if that's as good? Quackshot is a fucking classic. Prolly the first platformer I actually completed.

    BTW Phantasmal, isn't that strategy game Centurion: Defender of Rome?

    edit: and yeah, having played most of these on actual consoles (except for Snatcher because lolSegaCD), I can attest that they look like someone ejaculated all over the screen.

    Snatcher was cool, but the 3rd act is just one long info dump (like every Kojima game).

    I hated the shooting parts. I actually couldn't get past the last one so I just watched the ending on youtube. :M

    Just like Snatcher, it has some shitty popamole shooting gallery parts but makes up for it with atmosphere and awesome artwork. Plus I love those kind of adventure games, Western or Jap. I have the translated version for PS1 so there's lots of voice acting. I'd say that's a negative since it's anime style voices, with lots of random grunts and awkward nonsense. Still a cool game though.

    Another somewhat similar game I've been playing is Rise of the Dragon. Hadn't played it in ages, still great.

    Yep, that'd be the one. Those old strategy games are a pain on consoles, thanks to no mouse support and everything being icons.

    I'm about done with my Hyperspin setup, just a few more systems to go. It's such multi-clitted vagina having tons of old gems together on a frontend. Grabbing some TurboGrafx CD games right now then onto Amiga, then heaven.

    If you liked Snatcher than you will feel at home with Policenauts. I played them one after another and it was a blast. And instead of Invastion of The Body Snatchers/Terminator thing we have Lethal Weapon in future . The english patch is very well done, and yes, it's got some shooting sequences, one which can be more difficult but overall it's not painful. Great soundtrack and no horrible american dubbing, so there is your answer ;).

    Who is that guy anyway? There's too much resemblance for it to be coincidental, I think.

    Anyway, I wonder how Bethesda feels about the fact that modders managed to make their game from 2001 look better than Bethesda was able to do with Oblivion in 2006. The mod also seems a lot more stable than MGSO2 did. Hasn't crashed on me yet.

    Todd Howard, the Awesomer

    David Gaider, the Romancer

    Peter Molyneux, the Innovator

    Morgoth, the Day Oner

    Not too bad I guess, since most people thought Oblivion looked wonderful on release (sometimes you saw someone complaining about the potato heads, but those were quickly shushed). But to be fair, modders do it as a hobby and can spend a week getting the pottery's texture just right, the comparison will always be unfair.

    Herve should be the disease or the cancer since it's something eats away at your from the inside, corrupting and twisting everything that you hold dear.

    felipepepe: A better term for "eater" would be "devourer".

    As for Caen... Pestilence?

    I was playing morrowind overhaul and my cousin was impressed by the graphics. It was a long time he played games. Then he got interested in seeing more and I showed him skyrim vanilla that i just torrented... he thought morrowind looked better, and that it was a newer game.

    Vanilla Morrowind already looked better than Oblivion. Actually, I really prefer the vanilla faces to those modded ones. Maybe just because they don't resemble Squiward Tentacles in any way.
