What do you think about 2D games for N64?
Is it interesting to anyone?
Think N64 was designed for 3D stuff, but there's some cool 2D games for it too.

Re: New Game, Retro GFX!

It does look cool. Then again, I'm a nut for all things SNES-y looking, so yeah... :wink:

Re: PC Classic - new games console based on PC

As for the official controller - I'd go for something like this personally: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YnQwL6niQEc A small/compact keyboard with a touch surface rather than some console style gamepad, as PC games tend to be more mouse & keyboard oriented. Although it should still have ports for...

Re: PC Classic - new games console based on PC

The interesting thing is For years a lot of PC gamers have scoffed at console gamers Now this happens........... It might be paradoxical to make a "games console" out of a "personal computer", and as history shows us, this usually wasn't greeted all too well (e.g. Commodore 64 GS, Amiga CD32, Steam...

Re: PC Classic - new games console based on PC

So here's some ideas for games: Tetris - maybe the DOS version isn't the best, still, it's a game I'd associate with the PC. Some sort of "green screen" filter would be nice to give a proper PC XT feel. Prince of Persia - DOS version was likely the best and showed that there's a bright future for PC...

Re: PC Classic - new games console based on PC

It's not that portable though. Sure, the box itself is small, but you're going to need a power supply and a TV, and probably a keyboard and mouse too to play most of the games properly. You can already buy modern x86 based PCs in around the same form factor too, such as the Intel NUC, Udoo Ultra an...

Re: Sony announces Playstation 1 Classic

Eurogamer have a review, and they're not terribly impressed. https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2018-11-08-weve-played-the-playstation-classic-and-its-a-disappointment Mostly it's much the same gripes people have had on here about the controllers and the games selection, but it would also seem that...

Re: What console would you like most to see brand new games for?

That's a pretty good representation in that last image, better than the usual unrealistic scanline junk that comes up In these conversations like the middle two. Which is exactly why the N64 smoothing thing baffles me. They took low res textures, the stretched and filtered them. Then they apply ano...

<Insert the usual post about why not just use a Raspberry Pi> And they have the answer for that... :wink: "Can’t I just buy a Raspberry Pi, an enclosure, gamepad, keyboard, and mouse, 3D print a faceplate, install Armbian, buy 30+ games, build the source for ARM or install/configure in DOSBox for e...

PC Classic - new games console based on PC

Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2sjbrqR36w4&t=1s It's essentially a small box to play retro PC games on. It's not a bad idea and the target price will be 99$. Interestingly, it won't use x86 architecture but ARM, which probably means it won't run native DOS PC games but have some form of emul...

Re: What console would you like most to see brand new games for?

I went for the SNES, today's indy devs have shown they can make some great, good looking games in the 2D 16-bit style. New high-quality SNES games would be interesting for sure, but even among the "16-bit" indies, we can see some are pushing for more than what a SNES could actually do. Something li...

Re: What console would you like most to see brand new games for?

You can however make N64 games look better by turning off the blurring http://retrorgb.com/n64blur.html In saying that Forsaken looks bloody good on it I actually prefer the "blurry" look, it's how it's supposed to look like. Too much sharpness on N64 results in very ugly dithering and pixelation, ...

Re: What console would you like most to see brand new games for?

Please don't confuse hacked and brand new games. I meant exactly AAA "like" games released on a physical medium with all related stuff like the case, shell, booklet and etc (exactly as it was released in the past). Yeah, this isn't really happening because as I mentioned it wouldn't really be worth...
