Hello! I'm Dark Hero, long time retro game and tech enthusiast. I found this place from TCRF, which I've used for a long time. I used to be a big lurker but I've been expanding my internet presence in recent years.

I'm studying IT, and other than games I enjoy the usual geeky sci fi and fantasy stuff as well as swimming.

You can find me on Twitter, and I'm usually active on Discord and IRC when I'm around. I also have a Twitch channel where I mostly stream retro games and JRPGs, I haven't been able to stream in a while due to life and health stuff but I hope to get back to it soon.

Glad to be here!

In terms of my backlog, I'm most looking forward to playing Dragon Quest 4. Also the first Bayonetta now that I have it on steam.

Lunar: The Silver Star for the Sega CD. Been enjoying it so far despite the fact that I still don't feel like I'm in the main plot yet.

My gaming PC runs Windows 7, which I'm planning on keeping until I replace it.

I dual boot Windows 10 and Ubuntu MATE 16.04 on my laptop, with Ubuntu MATE as my daily driver.

I started an Aria of Sorrow randomizer seed not to long ago. Got Claimh Solais and the Hippogryph soul early which completely broke the game.

I'm a big advocate of business laptops, so unless you want something extremely light or need to game on the go I recommend looking into those. As others have said an SSD is important (on some models such as ThinkPads it's easy to swap in your own for cheaper) and make sure the screen resolution is at least 1920x1080, as many of the cheaper models are still 1366x768.

Using my JVC HA-RX700 headphones. I generally don't like using speakers, even when other people aren't around.

As good as Super Mario RPG is, the soundtrack really isn't that memorable.

My theory is Yoshis have an entirely different concept of gender compared to what we do.

I'm hoping I could get back to feeling like I actually got enough sleep.

If you haven't already, don't forget to clear out your temp folder as well. Once I had no idea why my hard drive was almost full then realized I had over 35GB in there.

I seem to be in the minority today, but I genuinely enjoy Sonic Adventure as much as I did when I first played it. Sure I don't enjoy all the characters, but the worst ones are given very little game time and the rest of the game more than makes up for it. The technical problems people criticize when they say the game "hasn't aged well" (which to be fair are abundant in the DX version) were also criticized when the game was first released, same with the cutscenes and voice acting.

These days when I find people discussing the game, I usually see disclaimers from people who give it a positive opinion, like "I recognize the game is garbage now but I like it because nostalgia" and "I enjoy this game but I admit it hasn't aged well." Not that there's anything wrong with having an opinion like that, but I don't really see that for other games and you don't need to justify your enjoyment of a game.

Strangely there's no metacritic page for the Dreamcast version, but I'm assuming Hanlon's razor.

I'll get around to XV myself... at some point. Still haven't played X-2 and I own that one.
