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.

Something has always bothered me about unlicensed NES games. As I understood it, Nintendo put the lockout chip in there to prevent NES games from running unless they gave them the okay (I don't remember but I assume it's just a software thing like Sega's TMSS screen).

My curiosity is that, if this is the case, then how were so many unlicensed carts made, and how were some of them so public-facing? I mean, I've seen Tengen games given away as prizes in Double Dare. How can a company do that when their games literally couldn't be played on a normal system? And if the games didn't play on normal systems, then how were companies prolific enough at selling them to keep going, ie. Color Dreams, when they were selling a product that, sans modification, no one could use? Did they have some kind of method that they advertised? Was there add-on hardware, a pass-through adapter perhaps, that bypassed the lock screen? Or did they advertise Game Genie as being the adapter you needed? Could that also be part of why Nintendo sued Galoob over the Game Genie, that it could be used to get around the lockout chip?

So which book has this game ripped off? I'm sorry but whenever there's something so brilliant and unique in videogame storytelling I have a hard time believing it was made up from scratch by gamedevelopers rather than lifted from superior storytelling mediums.

Hey /vr/ been playing games all my life and I want to get back into the retro games. Was wondering how clone consoles hold up instead of buying a NES,SNES, and Genesis seperately

bought the trilogy on GOG last year because it was 1.50€ and I was like why not, but I'm a bit afraid that I'm too much of a zoomer to truly appreciate these games
how do they hold up? did they age good or badly?
