El día en el que EA pagó una morterada para tener a Tiger Woods en PS1 y fue saboteada por South Park.
Un empleado coló uno de los primeros episodios de la mordaz serie de Comedy Central en el disco. 🙈
Good afternoon, Fedinauts!
A new week; some cool new Photo Sharkives shares.
Mid-90s Akihabara, Japan.
A wonderland of rapidly changing video game consoles and console generations. And young Danny Choo (now quite a well-known travel blogger and founder of Mirai Inc) on his first visits to Japan gave us a photographic glimpse into this changing landscape that would have felt like a futuristic paradise to teen me!
I was especially happy to see the wall of PlayStation as that's my favourite 90s console and the one I've been most passionate about collecting over the years.
A dose of mid-90s anime cuteness for your Fediverse feeds - and the third ever PlayStation game to be released alongside the Japanese launch of the console on December 3rd 1994.
Crime Crackers is a pretty nifty little sci-fi dungeon crawler FPS with lite-RPG elements. Think Slayers in Space or Lost Universe, which actually was Slayers in Space. Catgirls with a cute peeking fang are also included in abundance!
Sadly, there's still no fan translation, but you could largely muddle through it as the gameplay is rather simple and maze-based. I used Retroarch's screen translation tools for our playthrough of it and it worked pretty well.
One for fans of early PS1 games from Japan like myself!
👾 Here's a couple of great retro titles for the PlayStation 1. Driver 2 and Sim City 2000.
The Driver series was my first true open-world driving simulator games & it blew my mind spending entire summer vacations playing them.
Sim City 2000 was another game I would play for hours at a time. I drove my parents crazy (they found it boring), but I played it for years and it never got old. Will Wright (creator of Sim City/Sims) & team are great folks, I cannot wait to see what the next fancy new thing is they are working on now! 😉😉😉
Hace un mes salió una demo de "Twin Peaks: into the night" un fan game basado en la serie con estética de PS1 con influencias de survival horror de la época.
Me acabo de ver un gameplay y me parece una genialidad.

Big thanks to Adam in the Discord for shedding some light on "Gadget: Past As Future"🙏
I'd never heard of this game, let alone the 3 books written about it! 📚
Now all catalogued in #TheVideoGameLibrary!
🔴 THIS CAT IS LIVE!
OH HECK YEAH WE SPEEDRUNNIN FRIENDS!
Let's see if we can get our first official Parasite Eve New Game run on the books!
Come hang! :3
Picked up Star Wars: Rebel Assault 2 at a thrift store a while back, but still have not tried it. Any thoughts on this game? Live action video footage for Star Wars was a pretty rare and precious thing in the mid 90s! And it's got light gun support?! There can't have been many #starwars games with that, in spite of all the blasters in this galaxy. #ps1 #retrogaming #playstation
Working on a webcomic called "GARG LAND" to launch soon!! If you like retro game aesthetics and colorful, cartoony characters (many of whom are queer🌈), it'll be right up your alley!
Follow me for updates! 🤩
I'll be opening ✨commissions✨ soon as well.

@sleepybisexual 3DS is pretty challenging; you'll want a touch screen for some games. #Switch basically requires #Steamdeck or better. There are some Android based handhelds that are handing #Gamecube/#Wii now, but not Switch yet.
"Motley the Way-Cool Wombat" (2001)
Cover concept of an early PS2-era mascot platformer that unfortunately (or...thankfully?) doesn't exist.
Although the gaming press lambasted Motley for his derivative early-aughts 'tude, poor controls, and...odd creative choices (that ESRB rating is no joke, let's just leave it at that), his debut title is still considered a cult classic to....er...someone, out there, I guess.

Let's go with the Wu-Tang Shaolin Style game from Playstation 1.
This is the song Shaolin Temple from the game's soundtrack
In half an hour at 19:30 (Internet permitting) we're starting Episode II of our 1996 Tomb Raider playthrough.
We're streaming from an original PS One console, as true to 90s life as we can get. Would love any help you can give in solving these puzzles!

Killed Lazarus, and I'm at the end - exactly 30 days after starting my run as Alathra the rogue! I like to take it fairly slow, and I have. Now for the big demon himself. I suspect I won't have too much trouble - Lazarus is usually tougher and he was pretty much a breeze. Rogue arrows ftw! Find or buy a good bow!
Down in level 13 (and Alathra is now level 20). Was thankfully able to skip a lot of level 11, as those damn demons there kept surrounding me and killing me- but the succubi and other demons aren't too bad now since I found this BADASS bow that adds 101% damage. Almost breezing through level 13. Only a couple more to go!
Lots of decapitated bodies down here.
Good morning, Fediverse!
Breep-Breep! CODEC call coming in as it's the 25th anniversary of the Japanese release of the seminal METAL GEAR SOLID on PlayStation.
It's hard to understate just how landmark a title this is. It's everything that the stampede to FMV games on Mega CD and 3DO tried to do in terms of being a cinematic game - but with amazing gameplay. You didn't need live-action to be 'realistic' and 'cinematic' - Metal Gear Solid truly showed where the emphasis should be placed.
It's still an awesome game to play today and if you don't have a PS1 and a copy to hand, it's worth emulating that version with a memory card file full of saves just for a certain scene!
If you have any MGS memories you'd like to share, let's hear them! When did you first play it and did you import it from Japan or the US if you're in PAL?

Finally making some damn progress on level 9 in Diablo with my rogue run.
A big key for the rogue here is firing arrows toward where you know the monsters are (once you've died from them enough times to learn, ffs) to taunt them to come over near one of these wood enclosures with the door.
Then, you run inside, close the door, and fire out, chugging health potions. It works. They run over fast and want to surround you. My rogue Alathra is level 18 now, and pretty tough (Arkaines Valor etc) but if the monsters surround you on floor 9, they'll just kill you over and over. You can't even chug potions fast enough.
So I fully filled my inventory with health potions, had a town portal ready to go, kept saving every time I killed a few more, and I think I'm finally getting somewhere now.
I mean, I kept dying here a LOT. Was even trying Stone Curse, melee weapons, anything. It was brutal. Maybe now I can progress some more.
The #Nemesis is dead but I will have to redo this fight next Saturday as there was a problem with OBs luckily I didn't save after I fought him so I can easily do it next week. Check out my #Twitch stream and please boost this post as I'm a #Smallstreamer

Is anyone going to be playing Armored Core VI today?
Being deep into Baldurs Gate 3 and then Starfield soon means it's going to be a future play for me, but I've appreciated the series ever since Armored Core 2 on PS2.
I picked up the very first Armored Core for PS1 a few years back and it was pretty neat stuff to see where it all began - wobbly mecha polygons and all.
Still working my way back down to floor 9, gradually, just hangin out a little, grabbing up good gear. Got a better bow.
Every time I come back to town to sell stuff, I feel Griswold eyeing my badass backup axe, the unique and indestructible Wicked Axe, (that I'm keeping to thrash those jerks up close that instantly surround you on floor 9).
Not gonna happen, man. 🤣

Well, I kept hitting a wall at floor 9 in my PS1 mini Diablo run, so I just saved my character and restarted the whole game to respawn monsters. Had to sell my extra stuff and they took the special stuff (Arkaines Valor, etc) but I bought a new helmet and armor and now maybe I can get a little bump before trying floor 9 again. Argh!
Alathra's now level 16 and I'm starting in on floor 9, which is of course where that difficulty ramps up! However, I just went back to kill the Butcher and now I'm gonna take out Leoric. The Butcher was SO easy to take out with a level 16 rogue 🤣 I figure Leoric will be too. Diablo tip - wait to kill these two til later, when you're stronger! 🔥
Update - I played a little bit yesterday and today, my rogue Alathra is now level 5. Cleared out floors 1 and 2 except for the butcher, trying to get a little more experience down on floor 3 here etc before I tackle him.
It's SO much fun (I always have to speed it up though, the regular walk is so slow -- there's a tip for ya, as long as you can deal with slightly faster monsters. It's a game changer for me).
It's just a thrill every time I play this game. I always forget how much I love its AMAZING soundtrack and sound effects. I remember first seeing it at my friends house when it first came out, and I've been hooked ever since.
Moved the hacked PS1 mini (it has like 80+ games on it now thanks to Autobleem, the most important of them being Diablo) to the living room to start up a new Diablo run. I beat it two years ago in September and I started my run(s) in August 2021. Something about August and fall, I guess. Last time, I tried a sorcerer but struggled til I switched to fighter, which I beat it with. This time, I'm trying a rogue. Never tried rogue before. Should be wild. Time for tons of saving and leaving all my gear on the ground in town! 🤣
To prepare for the new show, I played #TwistedMetal 1 and 2 for the first time since I was a kid. It was alright.
First game had the more memorable characters, and second had much better controls and maps. I played as the dude on the cover with the giant wheels - it was a trip. The physics on the car were impressive #PS1 #PlayStation #gaming
Cheeky bonus stream tonight and it's coming from my Anbernic RG35XX handheld - it can emulate #Amiga, #ZXSpectrum, #C64 as well as consoles like #SNES, #PS1, arcades and many things in between. But how well? Come and find out at 19:30 BST over on #Twitch at https://twitch.tv/NAG_Graham
It’s the 25th anniversary of Brave Fencer Musashi this month. It’s one of the lesser known action RPG games from the #PS1 era that was made by Squaresoft.
It’s been cool going back and playing it today. It’s fully voice acted by big names. And many of the gameplay elements were groundbreaking for the time — from Crash Bandicoot style running towards camera boulder chase levels - to platforming on rotating platforms aka Super Mario Sunshine and Galaxy. It’s astounding how much they packed in.
Feel like I should do an #introduction post.

Just hooked the #RG35XX up to my TV with an HDMI cable and it just worked!
USB controller too; though charging won't pass through my hub.
#PS1 games look great once you get them scaling properly.
I don't think I've done one of these...
