2018-10-04: Search server active for recent posts, rebuilding for older posts. DesuArchive & RBT restored after host's storage had a 2nd SAN hiccup on 9/24. No damage, but posts need import from the contingency scraper. Many thanks to our new tetrarchy of sysadmins who worked to fix this complex service after the loss of the original admin. More info later. Donations would still help in case of image storage failure and we still need a new scraper.
The server is stable, but the scraper is at its final limits due to crippling resource use and cloudflare limits, so /gif/ and /wsg/ images are paused. Let's solve this: help build a new scraper. More details here.
Ghostposting is under extreme vetting by new moderators to mitigate spam. Crackspamming or responding to any is a bannable offense.

Now I'm not an insane purist for retro games but this is complete crap. We need to make classic games more approachable and easy to start because people cant pick them up immediately? This is such horse shit. Is this the fallout of creating the NES Classic and newer generations going with fads and not realizing the actual difficulty in retro games?

Why are Amerimutt SNES so ugly? Who designed this piece of shit and thought it would look appealing to a consumer? If you own one of these things I'm sorry for you. It's the least aesthetic console ever made. Even Atari and Pong consoles looked better.

Anyone have downloads for these? These are solid gaming retrospective books, and I need them for research. I'm collecting as many JP and ENG Retrospective gaming books as I can find.

Thread for general game books too.
