What have you actually PLAYED tracker for 2021 (Season 14)

Recommended Posts

Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance for Playstation 2 - 513 minutes

 

I have finished easy mode with 1 character. I played this using an emulator this time to test how well it runs on a fast PC. This game is beatable and runs at an accurate speed most of the time but it needs a few fixes checked in the options to prevent slowdown around fire or ice effects. Even still there are areas where it slows down (around portals by the chapter bosses and the places you emerge in the next chapter), a few of the videos are scrambled (the intros, chapter intros and ending). Hopefully the  PCSX2 eventually gets on fixing all these things so it runs well with default settings some day.

 

I think when I looked at the Gamecube version, Dolphin ran the game better than PCSX2, but I dont like the Gamecube button layout as much and the second game is not even on Gamecube.

Another pretty sizable week of gaming for me this past week! I only played two games, Space Invaders for the Atari 2600 High Score Club and Resident Evil 4 on the Switch, but I had a lotta fun with both. I feel like I did pretty alright in the HSC, with a score of 2,255 in Game 6 of Space Invaders, and after beating Resident Evil 4 once I started a new game with max upgraded weapons and have been enjoying a leisurely second playthrough :)

10. Super Asteroids & Missile Command (Atari Lynx) - 90 min.

 

Pre-NES top 10:

 

1. Solar Fox (Atari 2600) - 133 min. (PN#2)
2. Space Invaders (Atari 2600) - 128 min.
3. Mappy (Arcade) - 120 min.

Top 10 systems:

3. Game Boy (375) (#3)
4. Arcade (220) (#9)

8. Game Gear (175) (#5)
9. NES/Famicom (119) (#8)
10. Atari Lynx (90)
 

None of the post-NES games on the main list remain from last week. Instead it is Mortal Kombat Mythologies: Sub-Zero followed by Super Mario Land at the top. By a margin of 5 minutes, Solar Fox takes the pre-NES title ahead of Space Invaders, and unusually the difference between #10 on the main list and #10 on the pre-NES list is only 25 minutes. Systems wise, MK Sub-Zero + Ocarina of Time bring the Nintendo 64 as the most played system.

 

Two new entries in the 1000 Minute Club:

 

#464 Super Mario Land (Game Boy) - 1278 min.

#465 Crystal Castles (Atari 2600) - 1054 min.

Here are the times for this past week (November 8th through 14th) on classic systems...

 

Arcade:

Jr. Pac-Man - 140 min. in 5 sessions

Ms. Pac-Man - 6 min.

Scrambled egg - 48 min.

Turtles - 1 min.

Yosaku to donbei - 1 min.

 

This week I mainly continued to play Jr. Pac-Man, but I don't seem to get any further in the game, peaking at Level 4. For a comparison, I briefly played Ms. Pac-Man, then I branched out to Turtles and Yosaku To Donbai. However, I killed Turtles after I got eaten on the 1st floor, and I couldn't quite get the hang of Yosaku To Donbei. However, Scrambled Egg worked better, I played until I beat the factory set high score of 30.000 points. I've played this one before, but it's been a long time.

More quality time with fewer games this week.

 

Atari 2600:

 

Space Invaders - 55 minutes for High Score Challenge and all I have to show for it is this:

 

D8B8B966-07BB-42D1-BF2F-BA9724EDB0F6.thumb.jpeg.b3b93565efb612f7ced019ef7aefbc4f.jpeg

 


And just under the wire:

 

Popeye - 25 minutes for HSC.

 

72A68836-09C2-4AB1-92EA-E4EA68DEF680.thumb.jpeg.bc128891cb410a069c85a12dba535e6c.jpeg


Microvision:

 

Block Buster - 45 minutes. Finally cleared the first board! I am getting better. And I need to clean the paddle.

 

C6E56A19-9731-4873-BB56-DC3ED24DFBA5.thumb.jpeg.96bde6a7be0aeaff47a85249dd3f1f42.jpeg

 

Connect Four - 22 minutes on hard. Nothing like having a handheld video game from 1982 clean your clock over and over and over again. I never won once.

 

Game Boy:

 

Vanishing Racer - 60 minutes. I have been trying to get good at this. I found a way to grind for lives on the first level and a super cheesy way to kill the first boss, so I can make it to the second level with tons of lives, but then I die.

 

72495A9C-1393-44DD-B737-F8CA23E9E27C.thumb.jpeg.313b9a8b7d457a302444b6b63d552e0c.jpeg

 

Lynx:

 

Centipede (Songbird version) - 200 minutes.

 

Have played a lot of Lynx Centipede (completed last year by @Songbird) for the high score challenge.

Game Gear:

 

Pinball Dreams - 15 minutes.

 

Factory Panic - 15 minutes. I like it better with Gorby.

 

Game Boy Color:

 

Merlin - 60 minutes. Beat it on "Practice" mode and got well into "Pro" mode. There isn't a huge difficulty spike, just that there is no checkpoint halfway through stages.

 

6CDD4807-6D7C-4506-AE50-B837EDA84426.thumb.jpeg.92feea42c338076da5cdc2245ab173bf.jpeg

3D Ultra Pinball: Thrillride - 25 minutes.

 

This completely under the radar game is the best pinball game on the Game Boy Color. Or indeed probably any Game Boy up until the Advance. It's really good.

Lemmings - 20 minutes of realizing I suck even more at Lemmings when I can't see where they are. This plays well, but has by far the worst music ever in a Lemmings game.

 

Turbografx 16:

 

Chew Man Fu - 117 minutes. Started playing this, couldn't stop. One of the system's most addictive and unknown games.

Not to mention funny - your mentor has a hilarious way with words:

Genesis:

 

Beyond Oasis - 47 minutes. Restarted from scratch, got the first two djinns.

 

EDIT: sorry @carlsson I forgot one again

 

Light Crusader - 15 minutes because I always think of Beyond Oasis and Light Crusader and Landstalker as one single unit and I felt bad about not having touched Light Crusader in a while.

 

SNES:

 

Super Nova (Darius Force) - 35 minutes. I dunno, Darius on the SNES is just not really living up to the name (or the not-name in the case of Super Nova). It's fun, but it feels a bit off.


ED6DE400-3268-4F0C-AB5B-7873BFF4DECD.thumb.jpeg.7366a457775a646e26319243eff1a3e6.jpeg

 

Spectre - 45 minutes. Do you love the Atari Jaguar mostly for its collection of modernized Battletank clones? Well, this one is for you (and me). You drive around arenas collecting flags, killing enemies, avoiding mines, refueling/filling up ammo, and that's that. You can jump long distances in a way that is almost reminiscent of X for Game Boy, but you can't actually fly like you can in X. If you like this particular genre and this "retro-futuristic" aesthetic, it's a LOT of fun, and it's dirt cheap.

NES:

 

Pin*Bot - 22 minutes. AMAZING conversion.

Snake Rattle 'n' Roll - 27 minutes.

I played a lot of variety opposed to logging lots of time into just one game mostly.

 

Alundra for Playstation - 89 minutes

Beyond the Beyond for Playstation - 103 minutes

Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Battle 22 for Playstation - 52 minutes

King's Field (Japanese) (1994) for Playstation - 182 minutes

King's Field (Japanese) [the first game; 1994] - made it to the second floor down and started exploring the graveyards down there. Remember, this is the game that only came out in Japan and the King's Field we got was actually their King's Field II, and our King's Field II was their King's Field III.

Kirby's Dream Land - played thru the normal mode

Zelda 1 - played thru the second quest

Mickey Mousecapade - played thru the game

Pokemon Blue Version - started a new game with Bulbasaur, beat Brock, have 9 different Pokemon so far. Some have been leveled up a bit.

Space Invaders 11

You got your score in only 11 minutes?   Or did you have time last week?

 

I played 105 minutes and only broke 2000 once.   If I had another day or two I think I could have gotten to 3 or 4 thousand.

I played a little last week also. I also played a few weeks ago for a FB HSC. 
 

there was something wrong with my emulated version. I had unlimited lives. I asked Vicelli to eliminate my score.

Not the busiest week for me, but still a good one! I played a bit of Atari 2600 for the High Score Club and logged a little more time in my second playthrough of Resident Evil 4 on the Switch, but the real gaming highlight of the week didn't happen until late Saturday night when I found myself stuck in the ER for a few hours. I had been having some reaaaaaally bad abdominal pain and nausea all day so I went in to get checked out (thankfully it turned out to be nothing serious, just a big IBS flare up or a stomach bug) and since I knew I'd have at least a few hours of sitting around to do I brought my backlit Game Boy Color and EverDrive GB X7 along with. 

 

Looking for something to play that would make the time pass more quickly I decided to finally get around to playing Pokémon Yellow Version for the first time. It was a real good decision because I've hardly been able to put the game down since then and it's been a real help passing the time in bed the past couple days while I wait to recover from whatever is going on with my insides. So far Yellow is definitely my favorite of the classic Pokémon games, and I may have to try out Crystal after I finish this one! :)

I gotta say, if you have a GBC-playing device and like platformers with a lot of run'n'gunning and cool bosses and powerups, slap Merlin on your flashcart or emulator or find a cheap copy. It is maybe a little too easy when you are fully powered up but it is such a joy to play. It's bizarre that I only stumbled upon it and bought it on a whim after never having heard of it before; it's one of the most pleasurable experiences I've had on the system. All of the reviews online follow pretty much the same trajectory as I did: "Oh, another europlatformer for the GBC, yay. Oh, huh, this is kinda different actually. Hey, this is kinda fun. Wow, this is a lot of fun!" It's short and not worth what it's currently on eBay for, but I paid like $15 and I am really tickled to death by it. I'd love to see somebody revisit the Gradius powerup mechanic in a platformer.

Here's the summary for Week 45, running from Nov 8 - 14. We logged 4087 minutes of eligible play, playing 56 games on a total of 18 systems.

 

Top 10:

 

1. Pokemon Yellow (Game Boy *) - 504 min.
2. Space Invaders (Atari 2600) - 394 min. (#4)
3. Centipede (Songbird edition) (Atari Lynx) - 200 min.
4. King's Field (Japanese) (PlayStation) - 182 min.
5. Legend of Zelda, The (NES/Famicom) - 165 min. (#10)
6. Lighthouse Adventure (TRS-80 MC-10) - 154 min.
7. Lost Dutchman's Gold, The (TRS-80 MC-10) - 145 min.
8. Jr. Pac-Man (Arcade) - 140 min. (#10)
9. Solar Fox (Atari 2600) - 135 min. (#3)
10. Eggomania (Atari 2600) - 122 min.

 

(*) From what I can tell, this game runs on the original Game Boy in black and white, though it was distributed in line with the new Game Boy Color and of course produces colours. We've had this discussion before how GB and GBC games are kept apart, but it was already listed as a GB game so I kept it as such since I could not find any evidence there were two distinct versions.

 

Pre-NES top 10:

 

1. Space Invaders (Atari 2600) - 394 min. (PN#2)
2. Lighthouse Adventure (TRS-80 MC-10) - 154 min.
3. Lost Dutchman's Gold, The (TRS-80 MC-10) - 145 min.
4. Jr. Pac-Man (Arcade) - 140 min. (PN#6)
5. Solar Fox (Atari 2600) - 135 min. (PN#1)
6. Eggomania (Atari 2600) - 122 min. (PN#7)
7. Mine Storm (Vectrex) - 120 min.
8. Popeye (Atari 2600) - 102 min.
9. Prince of Persia (Atari 8-bit) - 71 min. (PN#9)
10. Pac-Man Collection (Atari 7800) - 66 min.

 

Top 10 systems:

 

1. Atari 2600 (845) (#2)
2. Game Boy (765) (#3)
3. NES/Famicom (445) (#9)
4. PlayStation (426)
5. TRS-80 MC-10 (299) (#5)
6. Atari Lynx (200) (#10)
7. Arcade (196) (#4)
8. Vectrex (180)
9. Genesis (119)
10. TG-16/PC Engine (117)

 

Top 10 systems if Pokémon Yellow is a GBC game:

 

1. Atari 2600 (845) (#2)

2. Game Boy Color (609)
3. NES/Famicom (445) (#9)
4. PlayStation (426)
5. TRS-80 MC-10 (299) (#5)

6. Game Boy (261) (#3)
7. Atari Lynx (200) (#10)
8. Arcade (196) (#4)
9. Vectrex (180)
10. Genesis (119)
11. TG-16/PC Engine (117)

 

Pikachu, i.e. the yellow Pokémon, becomes the most played game this week. A collective of 2600 HSC players boost Space Invaders into second place which also makes it the premier pre-NES game, ahead of two MC-10 adventure games. Whether Pokémon Yellow counts as GB or GBC, I made two versions of the systems list, but in both cases the Atari 2600 is ahead of both.

 

Popeye (Atari 2600) becomes member #466 in the 1000 Minute Club with a total of 1093 minutes. It is also the 90th Atari 2600 game to enter the club.

For Pokemon Yellow, I just go by what's on the front cover of the box. Game Boy.

 

All GBC mode does is mimic the Super Game Boy palettes. It does not introduce full color into the game in the way Link's Awakening DX or Pokemon Gold and Silver do.

 

IMO the branding on the front cover of the box is what is most important. It is what the game was sold as.

So by that definition everything I’ve reported as GBC is GBC. I wonder how many games use Super Game Boy palettes on GBC? Usually they seem different…

Yeah as far as I know, Pokemon Yellow is the only Game Boy game released after the Game Boy Color came out and that may be due in part to the game coming out in Japan before the Game Boy Color over there.

 

All other GB/GBC hybrid games have different SGB palettes than they would appear on a GBC due to Super Game Boy being limited to monochrome. And most aren't very detailed or great as the 1994-1999 Game Boy games because they typically weren't being optimized for it. The whole game will usually be all one color palette unlike Donkey Kong Land 2 where each level type had a different palette. For example Link's Awakening DX and the Mega Man games for GBC do that.
