Any recommended blogs/forums/sites/channels/whatever for retro video games (mostly Japanese ones)?
>>3480 I don't know if it's what you're looking for, but I feel like I found out about a decent amount of games from watching a bunch of Game Sack videos years ago. I found it to be better than my old technique of finding new games to play by scrolling through ROMs and going off titles and not necessarily knowing anything about them. Not all the videos are about games for old systems, but I've always avoided most of the ones that aren't.
Oh boy, I have some things for you OP (and everybody reading this). But I have to look over my bookmarks so I won't be posting all of my resources until next week. I'll post a few today: >http://www.hardcoregaming101.net/ Unfortunately, there are some Western games on here (including modern ones), but the site was originally dedicated toward old JRPGS (and some other japanese games that aren't rpgs). You can find of tons of reviews on obscure games that you may have missed. >https://tcrf.net/The_Cutting_Room_Floor This site also isn't Japanese centric but it is a very good one for unearthing secret easter eggs or unused content in games. >https://dreamcastify.unreliable.network/ Very in-depth blog that shows the difference between Sonic Adventure 1 Dreamcast and DX ports. >https://kantopia.wordpress.com/ (Mostly) Fire Emblem translation blog. Contains newer titles but also (mostly) the old ones. >https://themushroomkingdom.net/ This has got to be my favorite on the list. Site has existed for a long time (1997) and has that look that is reminiscent of the early-mid 2000's. This site is dedicated to all things Mario. You can find some translations here too!
>>3485 >TMK Yo I didn't know this was still going, looks just like it did back in day. Nice list anon.
>>3485 HG101 is a crappy site run by SJWs, just like ResetEra. They've even harassed a fantranslator for a Ganbare Goemon game for the "crime" of using the word "tranny" at the fantranslation. Also the "reviews" for certain Western indie games are practically shilling since they're made by their friends.
>>3491 I never knew that anon, thanks for letting me know. I only really go there to look up reviews on older games, and a lot of the reviews are from some time ago, but now that you've mentioned this, I don't even really want to give them clicks anymore. It's extremely annoying to find controversies like this when it comes to something that is supposed to be extremely innocent. >Also the "reviews" for certain Western indie games are practically shilling since they're made by their friends. I have seen a lot of shilling for garbage western indies for a bit of time now, which I found distasteful but did my best to ignore it.
>>3496 Long time ago it used to be a decent site and community. I even used to be active member there (until they later banned me). But around Gamergate era they went fully SJW mode. And later they got even worse during BLM crap. Only a few members there were still ok.
