You do know this game defaults to Practice mode, right?

Is that bad? I just figured that the game is pretty brutal already, so there was no reason to make it worse by making people play in professional mode.

Well, shit, difficulty's a problem? You DID pick Battletoads for the NES HSC... ;) :D

I was just under the impression the game might end early or something on Practice mode. Not that I would know, but I guess I will find out, haha.

Well, the game ends fine as it's supposed to (loops twice). It actually wigged out on me though the first time through and right before the end of the last stage, the game reset on me. This led me to believe it cuts you off for playing on easy/practice mode. Nope, most-likely just a glitch from running it on my Everdrive--I was able to start a new game and make it through to the full ending without glitching up on me.

Score at my first game-over (I kept going afterwards just to see if the game ends normally, hence the lower 1P score): 110,500

I guess maybe a Genesis HSC wasn't such a great idea? Barely anyone seems to be playing. :( :?

That's what I'm thinking. Every time the topic of a Genesis HSC has come up in the past, people all say how much they want it. I think part of it may be the time of year though, as the NES HSC is pretty dead, too. Not sure what to do. Maybe hold off until after the holidays,
