Title: What NES game are you playing right now?
Post by Martin on 05. Aug 2008 at 19:28
Are you playing a NES game these days? if yes, which one is it?

I've been playing "Gold Medal Challenge '92" today and it's just as great as I remember it. My brother and I used to borrow the game from a friend back in the days but we unfortunately never got around to buying it ourselves.

Years back I managed to get the US version, "Barcelona '92", but it just wasn't the same..... Today this baby arrived in my mailbox!

Heh I wasn't actually thinking of the Olympics, but that's another reason to give Gold Medal Challenge a try I suppose.

Yesterday I played Dizzy the Adventurer and completed it in less than an hour... how sad the game is so short - but still a very cool game.

At the moment I'm enjoying 'Wrath of the Black Manta'. I've had the game for years but had never really played it until a few weeks ago, I think it's a great game!

Title: Re: What NES game are you playing right now?
Post by Martin on 09. Aug 2008 at 20:42
Hmmm I've never given Wrath of the Black Manta a chance... maybe I should :-)

Perhaps the next game spotlight? :)

I think it would make an excellent game spotlight - there would be a lot to talk about - the obvious point being the old shinobi / Ninja Gaiden / Black Manta who ripped off who debate, major differences in the game from the others mentioned etc.

It's very 'Konami' in nature, not too taxing on the brain, but the gameplay is solid. I'm determined to complete it!

Title: Re: What NES game are you playing right now?

Write a spotlight about it kungfukid! Or team up with Martin

I wrote 1 about ducktales and enjoyed it :)

Title: Re: What NES game are you playing right now?

Yeah, I might just do that if I get a chance this week! I'm going to try and complete it first though!  :)

Oh It'd be great if you made one... I'd happily make the screenshots and such if you wish, alle you need to do is write the text :-)

It's of course up to you though...

Post by kungfukid on 10. Aug 2008 at 23:13
Sure, I'll give it a bash then. What sort of tone do you prefer it to be written in? Factual? Funny? Review? And what sort of length would you like? I've written a fair bit before over on sega8bit (I'm an admin for the site and a mod for the forum) so you can see stuff I've written before - reviews etc.

Title: Re: What NES game are you playing right now?
Post by Martin on 11. Aug 2008 at 00:45
Whatever you find best for you... I actually try to mix factual and fun, sometimes I succeed I think and other times I don't :-)

I don't really have any demands for written material other than you should be happy with what you wrote... I just think it's great to see someone else write something for the site so that it isn't always my stupid jokes that are repeated over and over, if I even have a sense of humor... hmmm :-)

Title: Re: What NES game are you playing right now?
Post by kungfukid on 11. Aug 2008 at 11:07
Ok, well I'll get onto it! I'm not going to have time today though. I might get time tomorrow, though I have a meeting on Wednesday to prepare for so it depends how I get on with that. So if I don't get a chance tomorrow then it'll probably be Thursday before I can get it done. Either way I'll get it done before the end of the week.  :)

That's a really, really good game.  So strange they didn't release it over here, I really don't understand why considering the popularity of the movie.

I've been playing Metal Storm. Awesome, awesome game if any of you don't know; it's a run-'n-gun mech-based game. You're a red and orange mech (an M-308 Gunner to be exact), able to manipulate gravity at will to make your way through various levels, which makes gameplay a unique experience. And of course, you'll get power-ups along the way to help you.
There are two parts per level (as far as I know), and at the end of every level is a boss that awaits you. The boss battles are hectic.
The password system is unique than others of the NES; the passwords are always random every time you complete a level.
Anyway, the game has smooth sprite animations, realistic gravity and explosion effects, and multi-layer backgrounds without the drag. So yeah, once again, Metal Storm is an awesome game and a must for those who are into side-scrolling shooters.

I also play Bionic Commando, Super Mario Brothers 3, 3D World Runner, Cosmic Epsilon, and Gimmick! Very fun games indeed.

I am playing Vindicators as much as I can before it sells and due to it's rarity chances are I'll never get to play it again. The eBay item number is: 230403991502

After it sells I am going to take a photo of me with it crying and running through a field of daisies.

Post by KidOrrorin on 13. Dec 2009 at 02:02
'Vindicators' is rare? Since when? It's an excellent game, don't get me wrong! You can find a bunch of them on e-bay for under $20, boxed, and for the cartridge itself only $7 or so max.

Right now I'm playing and loving 'Solstice', 'Megaman 2', and 'Zombie Nation'. Also, I'm practicing at 'Little League Baseball' so I can beat my friends when they come home from college. CALIFORNIA FOR THE WIN!!!

Hey newbe here. Me & my 7year old just beat Little Sampson.  Well he just watched.  That shold be listed as one of the hardest games, never thought it would end. Have taken a look around, cool site.  Found
through retrozone (retrousb.com).  Just ordered the powerpaks, & a copynes.  I can't wait to start playing around with that.  One question I have is will the packs work with my GAR? Does anyone here know?

Post by Zaffo256 on 29. Dec 2011 at 13:38
The Nes and Snes Powerpaks won't work with any cheating device because of the way they are design (it load a "Boot rom before it load any game). In fact if you are really unlucky you may even break something if you load a cheat code and it make the boot rom do some random thing its not suppose to.
But both Powerpaks have a built in menu were you can safely enter up to 5 GameGenie codes.

Wizardry: Knight of Diamonds - Made my second attempt at a speed run on the 26th, but was slaughtered by the Magic Helmet :(  Gonna try and be more patient next time, and grind out a few more levels before fighting it.

Metroid - Tossed it in on a lark on the 27th, and ended up with a no-death run.  Took about 2 hours and 15 minutes, 15 minutes of which was me pausing to go print off a map of Norfair.

Castlevania II: Simon's Quest - Played it on the 27th as well, ended up getting the best ending.  Working on doing a no-continue run, which is simply gonna take practice.

Jackal - Buddy of mine was over on the 27th, so after watching each other slaughter some single player games (he knocked out no-death runs of SMB2 and Silent Assault), some two-player fare was in order, so we knocked off Jackal.  First time we'd beaten the game together, so we're running out of 2-player games now :P

Just beat Goonies II this morning.  I'm pretty sure I could do a no-death run of the game once I learn the layout a bit better...pretty damn easy game overall.  Also fired up Astyanax for the first time in around 15 years, got to 4-1 before dying, then had a few stupid deaths, so I just turned it off...figure it's not my day for that game, but it's definitely going in my 10-game "Now Playing" pile for the NES in my room :P

wait....whats snakes revenge?  is that licensed???

Title: Re: What NES game are you playing right now?
Post by the_wizard_666 on 02. Jan 2012 at 19:08
Yup, it's a licensed game.  It's the "sequel" to Metal Gear, before Kojima-san made an actual sequel to it.  Story is that Metal Gear did so well with western audiences that Konami commissioned a sequel to be made (it's actually a rarity in that it never saw a Famicom release, but was released in the US and Europe), and Kojima only found out from a chance encounter on a plane, which led to him developing Metal Gear 2 on the MSX.  It's definitely got it's share of flaws, but it's not a terrible game...just doesn't feel like it should be a Metal Gear game.

spiffy! ill check that one out see if its worth adding to the "tower" back story sounds kool!
i never liked metal gear or at least "what i saw of it" i base my cart buying decisions on if a youtube gameplay video can "sell" me the game. if im not impressed with video of it im not buying it basically.

Title: Re: What NES game are you playing right now?
Post by the_wizard_666 on 02. Jan 2012 at 23:03
Some games look like garbage when you watch the video.  I had more fun playing Metal Gear than I ever would watching it.  I would say if you find the games cheap, give 'em a whirl, but only hunt for (and pay top dollar for) anything you actually are sure you'll enjoy.  And if you don't like it, you can always sell it or trade it for something you do want :)

Title: Re: What NES game are you playing right now?
Post by NESsharpKing891 on 03. Jan 2012 at 00:28
yeah, my biggest problem with the vid test is i cant get a great idea of how good the bit mapping is or how crisp certain titles are because most vids are on "emulators" or hds/plasma's
and i run all my gameplay threw NES Sharp tvs as not only crt's are the best for retro games but these particular models being designed for games seem to amplify any games picture quality almost making the colors jump right out of the screen!
so when i see them on youtube and it looks all crappy i really have to second guess "well will it enhance,or is it really just that bad?"

as for trading/resell i suck at it lol "buying" though,well check out my youtube page, you'll get the jest lol j/k

when it comes to carts im like kicken-wing from joe dirt..."Snakes and sparklers are the only ones i like"   ;D

Nobody has been playing NES games since the Mayan end of the world ? (edit : whoops, last message was actually posted the day just after, my bad)

Snake Rattle'n'Roll with my GF (but she's still learning), and Megaman I and II when I'm alone. The second one is quite easy, but I'm still struggling on the first one.

And yes, I'm a noob, and I'm kind of necroposting. Well, kind of.

Metroid.  I never actually beat it.  So I'm really enjoying making the  map and such.  My wife thinks its an incredibly boring game!  There are so many games I played but never beat when I was younger.

So this is my first post here. I recently purchased a Retrobit 8-bit system off Groupon so I can get my 3 1/2 year old son into gaming the way I got into gaming. It does stink how hard and expensive games can be. I did however get Super Mario Bros and Duck hunt duo for $3. He has NEVER played a gaming system and it has been awesome playing it with him. He is horrid at it and it is awesome to watch him try and get even a foot further than he did the last time. Anyways that is what we are playing.
