  1. I finally completed King's Valley on the Colecovision SGM. I really love that game and I'm so glad Team Pixelboy ported it.
  2. Yeah, it's got unlimited continues. It wouldn't have been bad if you started back at a reasonable check point like the original.
  3. It was Act 6 and you had to fight 3 bosses in a row and if you died on any of them you went all the way back to the beginning of 6-1. It was the most infuriating moment in my video game experience as a kid. I remember picturing a room full of Japanese developers watching me play the game and laughing hysterically when I died at Jaquio. At the time, I was convinced that it was impossible and the whole game was made solely just to troll kids because the developers must have hated them so much. I have less memories of Ninja Gaiden 2, but didn't it do the same thing with its final bosses?
  4. Congrats on your win. I think I enjoyed this season more than the last one, though I was running out of steam at the end. I also like that you included a graph. That is interesting to see!
  5. Birds. Ninja Gaiden birds. And their theme song.
  6. I don't know about scary, but the Tarantella Napoletana song that plays in Mangia' is kind of unsettling. It's partly because of the premise though, and they fact that it plays right after the kid's stomach explodes.
  7. I wish we were doing the superior btime3 (USA) version of Burger Time. It's a bit more fun. You feel really slow in this version. Elevator Action: 10,400 Metal Slug 5: 150,800 Burger Time: 32,050 Portman: 15,520
  8. I have a theory that Evil Otto is actually a Happy Fun Ball and the guy you control taunts it before the game starts.
  9. 1943: 40,800 Gyruss: 38,100 Metal Slug 5: 98,400 Elevator Action: 9,550 Baluba-Louk: 83,490 Kicker: 29,400 Port Man: 8,500
  10. I actually think you've got a shot at 2nd as most of these games I either suck at or have no experience with. Most of these are popular titles so I'm expecting great scores from you and Cynicaster. I can't rely on reflexes and I generally only do well on games where I can formulate a strategy that works for me. That takes a long time though and there are too many games to focus on this time. The same thing happened during the holiday round. That's where I really fell. All of that said, I don't want to sound too much like a defeatist and I'm sure you would be disappointed if I threw in the towel now and gave you 2nd place, so I will try my best to make sure you have to work for it!
  11. Unfortunately, the tips didn't help me out much with Rygar. I think I just got lucky in my first attempt. It took me over 2 hours of playing to improve my previous score! My main problem with the game is dying due to my attacks not registering a hit. About 50% of my deaths are attributed to this. I'll die to an easy 1 HP enemy that my attack bounced off of. Rygar: 215,640 Pengo: 55,290
  12. I agree. The game that inspired Cloudy Mountain, Hunt the Wumpus, had basically no action at all and it was all about finding the Wumpus (through deduction) without dying. I think that anxious survival element should have a little more focus. Trying to figure out where the tough monsters are and avoiding them until you are ready (or perhaps avoiding them entirely) should be a big component of the game. They should be difficult to defeat if you just barge in on them haphazardly and you should be rewarded for planning ahead. Also, I loved those moments where I had to decide if I wanted to risk shooting an arrow blindly into a room where I thought a dragon might reside.
  13. I actually kinda like the primitive shape graphics of the Shark! Shark! one. It has a certain charm to it.
  14. Yeah, that's happening to me a lot with Pengo. It's one of those games with a lot of randomness, so you can't really memorize the levels. I also find the AI to be difficult to predict at times.
