  1. 51,540 Beat my personal best and I'm inching toward completing the game.
  2. That's a good MAME title. I've never played the Famicom version. I'll add it as an option. If we get to it, I'll be sure to hit you up for the potential scoring pitfalls.
  3. I didn't really see any point in waiting a week or two. I figured if anyone wants to make game suggestions they can do that while we get going. Absolutely. We had three of them during season 16. I'll add these to my list of candidates.
  4. That concludes our season of black box titles. Congratulations to Tempest for taking first place! Points Awarded: bubufubu 1,479,300 +25 mbd30 233,900 +20 fakecortex 230,700 +17 Tempest 178,500 +14 Magmavision2000 136,500 +12 roadrunner 43,100 +10 jblenkle 26,800 +8 Final Standings:
  5. No time to catch your breath, a new season is here! We're back to our normal format of any game goes so if there's a title you've been dying to see in the HSC please post a suggestion. I still have a modest list of suggestions from previous years that I'll be pulling from as well. Anyway, we're going to kick this one off with a favorite: Marble Madness. Thanks for playing!

  6. Great score, that's impressive! Jackal has become one of my favorites since I first played it here. I've been debating including it next season.
  7. That's just fine. Play on whatever's available to you.

  11. After some consideration I've modified the remaining season titles list. Wrecking Crew and Donkey Kong 3 will be the last two rounds. I've decided to remove Excitebike because the only fair competition would be to only play the challenge tracks and I think it'll be tedious to have to continually reset the console to race each track. At this point in the season I don't think that's too big of a deal. The bonus games will be open for four more weeks if anyone else wants to jump in.
