I nostalgia'd all over myself - Page 2

post #11 of 34
I'm sure MGS 1 didn't get re-done due to licensing issues and the fact it's had more remakes than any of the others.

Something tells me somehow Nintendo holds the rights to Twin Snakes and Kojima wouldn't want to remake the original, I don't know, I just think the Twin Snakes release has something to do with it.

I never tried Twin Snakes and it sounds like allot of work went into it.
Quote:
The Twin Snakes features graphical improvements over the original, new cut scenes written and directed by Ryuhei Kitamura, and gameplay functions originally introduced in the sequel Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty. The game also includes a revised translation with re-recorded voice acting using all of the original English voice cast.


MGS 1 was even available on the PC but It used DX7 I think and this was back when 1280x1024 was something you wished you could run a game at, hence it's so old that even if someone patched it to function properly, it wouldn't support the type of resolutions we want.

MGS 2 was available in the generic resolutions all the way up to 1080p on the PC obviously, since you could change resolutions. It was actually a fairly good port.

Someone recompiled the exec for MGS 2 for ATi and Nvidia cards so the game functioned properly with the final patch on hardware that wasn't ancient, I played it on my 9600 GT flawlessly, with the recompiled exec of course. If you didn't use the corrected exec half of the graphics would be missing. Once again you should realize the game came out almost 10-11 years ago and a fix of this type is almost unheard of, and it had no side effects, and was designed to work with the final patch as well.

The MGS HD collection was worth it just for MGS 3, Since I played MGS1/2 on the PC and PS 1/2, so I got to experience them on better hardware/higher resolutions.

As for Nostalgia, the last time I did I think it was when I loaded up MGS 3 a few days ago just to see what it was like in the MGS HD collection.

I know I'm going to enjoy that sniper fight, oh man, I loved it, sitting alone with headphones on in the middle of the night, no other noise in the house or outside, had the lights off, and the ambience of that fight was just amazing, slowly creeping up to spot the old guy sniping just to hit him once and do it all over again.

It's like the middle of winter in a forest, it's literally so quiet you can hear snow falling.

I loaded up FFVII on an XP Virtual Machine earlier this year on my macbook pro. Got all the graphics mods and patches and got it to run flawlessly. I'd never actually managed to finish it before that playthrough because of not being able to use omnislash without the game crashing, so never got through the final sephiroth battle, which it was good to finally do after about 10 years of wondering what the ending was like. I nostalgia'd pretty hard.

The PC version uses horrible MIDI tracks for the soundtrack which makes it sound like DOOM 1/2 DOS music since WAV files were too big and MP3's didn't exist yet, at least publicly. The earliest I remember MP3's existing was for Napster and in N64 cartridges.

Although I do like the MIDI's for their retro feel, I actually used the OpenGL graphics mod and the ficedula audio patch, which allows the use of the orchestral score of the game music (in mp3 format). Both of which made for a much better experience than on my old Windows 98 box

I had a hardcore nostalgia moment with a friend last wednesday when we plugged in my PSX on the retro gaming rig I have...

We played Driver 2, Medievil 1&2, FFIX, Crash Bandicoot 1, 2 & Warped.

Man, that was epic. That texture skewing that was sooo characteristic on PSX... undescriptable redface.gif

Ah yes, and some Resident Evil aswell biggrin.gif

I just bought Croc: Legend of the gobbos.

I'll be honest, it's a bit more linear than I remember it tongue.gif
