What have you actually PLAYED tracker for 2019 (Season 12)

Recommended Posts

 

 

Anyone have suggestions about which Metal Gear game to play next? If you were going to play only one MG game (besides the first 3 which I've already played) which would it be?

 

I really liked Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots. It's fun to play as Old Snake :)

I have Revenge of the 'Gator... never seen anyone else who had it.

 

Oh, you'll find people with good taste in this thread. While I haven't logged any time for it lately, this is a game I keep going back to. The same people made Kirby's Pinball for the Gameboy, so if you like Gator, you should check that out too.

It's a cool game for sure! I've always liked just about everything from HAL Labs, and they did have a few Game Boy games outside of the Kirby series and spin-offs. Trax is a fun vertically scrolling tank shooter and if you're into European imports then Adventures of Lolo is a pretty sweet puzzle game. Speaking of European imports, there's another lesser known pinball game for the Game Boy called Hollywood Pinball that's quite good. It was only released in Europe and comes on one of those black backwards compatible Game Boy Color carts, but it's still pretty inexpensive and well worth tracking down a copy of if you're looking for more quality pinball games to play on the trusty old DMG. :)

I finished The Longest 5 Minutes for the Switch early in the week. BTW - it's a fantastic old-school RPG for anyone interested. Anyhow, my brother came over last night and we started a quest on the original Final Fantasy. Our goal is to get together every couple of weeks and play those great early RPGs. Wish us luck.

 

NES:

 

Final Fantasy - 231 minutes

Here are my times for this past week (January 7th through 13th)...

 

Arcade:

Burger Time - 78 min. in 2 sessions

 

Atari 2600:

Chaotic Grill (WIP) - 13 min.

 

Atari 7800:

Baby Pac-Man (WIP) - 55 min. in 3 sessions

 

PC (Windows 9x):

Visual PinMAME - Baby Pac-Man - 65 min. in 4 sessions

Visual Pinball - 8 min.

 

I continued playing Baby Pac-Man, but not to the extent I played it last week which I had off from work. By now I managed to "roll the fruit", that is, come to the point where the fruit would change for the 8th time, but that doesn't happen because then the fruit remain bananas. I also played the version in Visual PinMAME which runs the original ROM's in order to compare it to the Atari 7800 and version and help Bob improve it. While I was at it, I also tried two other tables coming with Visual Pinball, but they don't use Visual PinMAME because there's no original ROM's for them. Since this is essentially one game (as Pinball Construction Set would be one game), I didn't count the tables separately from each other.

 

Similarly, I played the original arcade version of Burger Time in order to help SplendidNut develop his Atari 2600 version called Chaotic Grill, which I also played.
