I used to have a list of games that I beat on my computer. Looks like I'll have to re-do it again.


Title: Re: Games you've beaten (including Famicom)
Post by: TheSSNintendo on September 25, 2006, 12:16:38 AM
I have to pretty much look through All Game Guide to remember which games I've beaten.

200 -- wow. I haven't the patience or the time. Thank goodness for warps. If there's anyone out there who has ever beat Snake Rattle N Roll, I'd be impressed.


Title: Re: Games you've beaten (including Famicom)
Post by: Doc on October 01, 2006, 10:17:25 PM
Today I beat Super Mario Bros. with no warps, I'll add that to my nonexistant list.

Hello to all, I believe that my commentary impressed a little to them respect more than 200 games than I have finished…

On the matter comment to them that I have perhaps managed to finish them throughout my life… that is to say, I have 26 years of age and I have dedicated good part of it to play NES and other consoles…   

I want to them to comment that I am a nostalgic collector who each weekend I am at least finished a game of my collection.    The truth is that I do not have idea since I have finished as difficult games as AMAGON, A BOY AND HIS BLOB, Wizard an Warrior I an II among others…   

Greetings to all

With warps? :-\

Snake Rattle N Roll with warps can be easy to get you nearer the end. I've gotten to the final boss without the warps but licking the foot enough times -- I've never been able to destroy the dude.

Updated my list...you know, the weird thing is that I've beaten Mike Tyson's Punch-Out, but I can't beat regular ol' Punch-Out. Since Tyson and Dream fight the same, I must have some serious racial prejudice that allows me to effortlessly beat the shit out of a black dude and not a white dude. :-\


Title: Re: Games you've beaten (including Famicom)
Post by: TheSSNintendo on October 14, 2006, 08:37:53 PM

Beat Time Diver Avenger just now; I don't know where the title "Eon Man" comes from, perhaps the storyline, where it says some sort of "eon system" people use to travel around in time. I love the story...kinda cool. They call the dude "Time Diver" because he dives through time to save people. The bosses are pretty easy, but the game overall is fun.

The Idea.. everytime you complete a game, Post it here and at the end of the year. tally it up. I did this once and was suprised how much I sucked at Videogames, Only rule no doubles. beating a game twice doesn't count. lol

I'll go first

Are we talking 100% Completion, or making it to the end/beating the last boss?


Title: Re: Games you've beaten (including Famicom)
Post by: manuel on April 19, 2009, 10:15:11 AM
You don't always need 100% completion, so normally beating a game is fine.

Updated my list...you know, the weird thing is that I've beaten Mike Tyson's Punch-Out, but I can't beat regular ol' Punch-Out. Since Tyson and Dream fight the same, I must have some serious racial prejudice that allows me to effortlessly beat the shit out of a black dude and not a white dude. :-\
(Weird, I guess I didn't quote it before - which makes my whole statement not make any sense. Anywho...)
Oh, damn. ;D

I haven't noticed this until today. :D

Not too long ago I beat Punch Out!! all in one try just to see the differences in the two games - not that interesting.

Post by: namzep on April 24, 2009, 02:49:17 PM
In the last couple of weeks I've taken out:

Professor Layton and the Curious Village (DS) - still two puzzles from having 100% completion
Peggle: Dual Shot (DS) - basically Deluxe and Nights combined with some extras

I'm also pretty close on Geometry Wars: Galaxies (DS) but am having trouble with a few of the planets.  I really need to get back to Nuts & Milk and develop my skills at it, though.

Is that the one that commonly goes by Pokemon Green and has the green Clefairy in it?  I agree that game is easy, but it's really fun!


Title: Re: Games you've beaten (including Famicom)
Post by: ericj on June 27, 2010, 01:10:27 AM
It's the same game as the Pokemon Green version, but the sprite-hacked Pokemon is different--he's blue & red and skinnier. I couldn't find a picture of it online.

Green was one of the first sprite hack games I ever played, I got it on a multicart with Pocket Monster ( a hack of Athena )

I don't usually beat a game unless it's really astoundingly great, and even then it can take several plays over several years before I get around to it. I have a short attention span.

When I was really sick though I'd get a game, beat it, and trade it away for another game ASAP. Went through a bunch like that; Batman: Arkham Asylum, Borderlands, Assassin's Creed II, and several others I'm blanking on.

I'm trying to beat more games, but I don't really have the time to invest with all the things I like to do - like amass more games! Wow, I'm an idiot...

Green was one of the first sprite hack games I ever played, I got it on a multicart with Pocket Monster ( a hack of Athena )



Pocket Monster just stole graphics from Athena, it's not a hack.

Only level 1 steals from Athena, all the other levels steal from different games. (Adventure Island 2, etc) Some of the bosses are stolen from Adventure Island 2 also. It is a really great pirate original though.

I know. Played some of Pocket Monster, and it likes to steal from Adventure Island.


Title: What was the last famicom game you finished?
Post by: Kiddo on December 14, 2010, 03:11:14 AM
So yesterday I spent 4 hours playing Tiny Toons and managed to finish it for the first time! I guess compared to most games it isn't that hard but I'm still a bit rusty in the 8-bit gaming scene. Those were 4 hours I could have spent studying for an exam I've got coming up next thursday, but it's just so gratifying finishing a game, seeing the ending screen and listening to the closing music  :D

So what was the last famicom game you finished? Did it take you long? Was it hard? Have you finished it before?

mine was the second DBZ which was quite easy to play. I enjoyed it but the ending left me wanting for more...ugh it only ends at the freeza saga!

Reviving this thread...

The last day I finally beat Baten Kaitos.
First time I played it (in Japanese) years ago it seemed very hard, but this time around I kicked serious ass. Beating a boss boasting 13000HP with 2 attacks just feels so good...  ;D

Don't you think it would be a good idea if we all just put our games in one post and just edit that post when we beat a new game?
Because this thread is going to get REALLY big if we just put one game per post.

NES:
Super Mario Bros. 3
Kirby's Adventure

But nobody would bother to read everybody's post every couple of days just to see if somebody has beaten a game or not. When you make a new post, people will easily be able to see what game you just beat!


Title: Re: Games you've beaten (including Famicom)
Post by: cubelmariomadness on December 14, 2010, 09:17:26 PM
Maybe for each week or something you could color the title different
like for Week one
SMB3
Week two
Kirby's Adventure

And that way the list would stay organized and you can tell when people have added new games. Maybe I'm just trying making this too complicated.  :P

How about just deleting your original post and reposting it, noting the last game beaten as well as the those from the original list?  This would bump it to the top and each person would still only have one reply in the thread.

Edit: Just beat G.I. Joe. Oddly enough, I actually died at the same time as the final boss... for a second I got angry thinking I'd have to start the level all over again, but luckily for me it counted as a win anyway. Surprise that game actually had some mercy on me...

I've been in an unusual gaming mood. I've been revisiting obscure NES games that I grew up with. Last night, I beat DynoWarz for the first time in about 15 years. It was probably only the second time in the last 15 years that I'd played it for more than 10 minutes. It's not a particularly long or difficult game, but it does require patience to complete it because of some tough platforming combined with stiff jumping mechanics. The game's concept, of giant dinosaur mechs battling, was pretty cool. But it definitely could've used better execution than it got.

Today, I went back to another NES game that I have vague memories of conquering in middle school: Cobra Command. This one is lacking polish in a few areas, but this is overall a very interesting and enjoyable game. It's got some stiff challenge to it in places, but it's overall pretty fair. And I really enjoy the weapons upgrade system. I played it twice back-to-back, but wasn't able to finish it. The game has limited continues. I exhausted them on the first playthrough on Stage 4, and the second time I reached the opening part of Stage 7 (which is the final stage). Unfortunately, I apparently missed an upgrade depot in one of the middle stages, and I just didn't have enough engine speed to pass the instant-death fireballs at the beginning of the final stage. (It was terribly frustrating to get wiped out by the first obstacle of the stage 15 or so times in a row before the ultimate Game-Over!) I may try to get it done again later today or maybe tomorrow.

Prince of Persia, the DOS version. A while back I read through Jordan Mechner's "The Making of Karateka" and its follow-up "The Making of Prince of Persia" and it occurred to me that I've never actually beaten the original PoP. So I went and did that.

Very awesome game, still holds up today. I'll probably even return to it every now and then, to try and beat it without ever dying. First time I cleared it legitimately (ie. no savescumming) I did it with mere five minutes left on the clock.

Post by: nerdynebraskan on June 11, 2013, 01:52:23 AM
Finally knocked out Cobra Command (NES). That last level was a serious pain. Took me six or seven tries (10+ lives and then game-over/restart the game), across three days. The crazy thing is I vaguely remember beating this when I was around 10 years old. Clearly, I must've cheated my way through with a Game Genie.

Post by: Nightstar699 on June 16, 2013, 10:38:51 PM
I haven't played that game, but it wouldn't have necessarily sold well on the Famicom just because it's good. I've noticed that generally the best games also happen to be the most obscure and unknown. There isn't really a direct correlation between quality and sales, I mean, just look at how many sports/Mah-Jong games are among the best-selling titles for Famicom.


Title: Re: Last game you beat (including Famicom)

I just got done beating Mega Man 2 on my NES. I beat it on difficult without using special weapons, except on the two in Wily's Castle that are immune to the pea shooter (the wall turrets and the final Wily/alien robot). I was also able to do it without using E-tanks, except on the two-stage Wily ship boss and the final Wily boss (although I didn't need it to beat him; I didn't get hit again after using it). And, for the first time in over 20 years of playing this game, I was able to get over the disappearing platforms in Heatman's stage without using Item 2.

I started with Super Mario Bros. 2 (US); I used a couple of warps and kind of zipped through it. I played with Toad for the whole game, and had about 12 lives left after offing Wart. It was a pretty good run, considering I hadn't played the game in several months.

I then re-tested Mega Man 3. Last night, I'd passworded straight to Wily's castle, and beat the game, only for the cart to freeze and crash seconds into the ending cinematics. I'm selling this spare cart to a friend tomorrow, and I wanted to be sure this thing wasn't defective. So I cleaned it again this afternoon, and played through the whole game. I used no special weapons, and tried to avoid using E-tanks, but I wasn't as sharp today as I was yesterday. I needed E-tanks to get past three of the Doc Robots, as well as the Orange Devil and the Wily Spider Tank boss. But hey, the cart played beautifully all the way.

Awesome! You sound to be very skilled at Mega Man, I respect that. Some people consider Rockman 3 to be among the more difficult entries in the series, I'll never know why. Perhaps I just know the game too well.

Last few games I've beaten:

Konami Wai Wai World 2 - Among the easiest games I've ever played, beat it my first time ever playing, and only dying a couple times. Great game nonetheless, but surprised to play something so easy from Konami.

Doki! Doki! Yuuenchi: Crazyland Daisakusen - On the other hand, this is without a doubt one of the hardest games I've played. I wasn't able to beat it in one sitting, I had to use the password continuation to finish it. Cruelly difficult game, but I really loved the bosses in it.

Batman Dynamite - Now among my favorite games, I've been beating this one a couple times a day since I got it. I love almost every aspect of this game... so far the best I've done is beating it losing only one life... hopefully I'll clear a no-death run of it soon.

Congratulations! If that game is truly as difficult as most claim, then that's quite the accomplishment.

Tonight I beat Ninja Ryukenden III, and Contra on Famicom... Contra was a no-death run, I died a few times on Ninja Gaiden III, but overall I was surprised by how easy the bosses were.

You beat NGIII already?  You only got it recently :)

Even with the easier bosses, I think I might like it more than NGII.
I think I'm the only one though, most like the second more because of the story, but I play in Japanese so it's all lost on me anyway.  I prefer the weapons and platforming in the third one.  The first feels like Spartan X2, walk and hit.


Title: Re: Last game you beat (including Famicom)
Post by: Nightstar699 on June 28, 2013, 08:06:10 AM
Yeah! This morning... plus it was my first time ever playing. I have NGI + II on NES though, I've had those forever. So I am experienced with the Ninja Gaiden games.

I love all the Ninja Gaiden games, even on Game Boy, Master System and Xbox, so it's really difficult to pick one. I certainly don't play them for the story, though. The story could be about Ryu Hayabusa embarking on a journey to feed the giraffes at a petting zoo, it'd make no difference to me as long as the gameplay was there. I really liked NGIII though, the soundtrack was incredible and the powerups/wall climbing mechanic reminded me of Kage, which, as you know, is one of my favorite games of all time. It just might be my favorite one of the bunch.

Edit: Just completed my no-death run of Batman Dynamite. Yes!

Well, I knew the pattern for that already. I've picked the information up somewhere over the years and still remembered it. I used warps when I beat the game, but I also played without warps a bit - I had no idea about Castle 4's (I think it was) mini-labyrinth so that took some retries. And for some reason I had a vague idea of Castle 7's labyrinth as well so I managed that on my first try.

I also know what weapons some Mega Man bosses are weak against, even though I've never fought them myself. This is the stuff my brain retains, but I need reminders and calendars to remember things like birthdays.

Now you get to play Super Mario Bros. 2! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x7KOQQCBvQA&t=5m14s) :D Oh the joy! ;)

I actually have RetroUSB's superb SMB2j cart, so I'll tackle that sooner or later. ;)

I somehow managed to beat this the first proper go once I got to the throne room.  It seemed easier than on the GBA version, which I still haven't managed to beat, but will do shortly.

I know a lot of people have beat this game, but I never had this as a kid and recently really got into it after getting a cart from St.Jackie (thank you).  I'm going to keep and enjoy this for a long time, playing through every now and then, maybe I can clear the new game plus sometime too :)

I found Wario's Woods to be more dynamic and difficult than Dr. Mario or Tetris. Either that, or I really suck at it. You should give it a go and let me know whether the game is that tough or whether I just suck at it.

@nightstar

Yeah, I kept the bo until the end of the game. There's a practically impossible area with four of those spastic things that run back and forth, plus a couple of other annoying things on an uphill climb. I'd stop short of that, shapeshift into the bird, and just dodged all that crap to the end of the stage.

The final boss's first form is easy, but you already knew that. The second form is a huge pain in the ass. But I found that if I kill the first form at the far left of the screen, the second form will just walk all the way to the right without attacking. I got in three cheap shots when he first transformed (but before his spread-gun), got in three more hit-and-run shots while he walked to the right, jumped him and got two quick shots while ducking to finish him off when he started to attack.

Yesterday, I beat Mega Man 4 (NES). I went for a more relaxing run, so I allowed myself to use the special weapons. But I did play through the whole game without an E-Tank. I also finished with a full 9 lives. Gotta do something interesting once in a while to keep a familiar game a fresh experience.

I just beat The Terminator (NES) for the first time. I've owned this game since my early teens, but I haven't really played it seriously until this week. It's possibly the worst game in my collection. I try to keep only games that I really enjoy playing it, which means 95% of them are at least subjectively good for me. But between my fondness for the movies, and the fact that I've screwed around with this game for 20 years, there's just enough for me to almost-enjoy playing it. But man, this was a lot of frustration for a crappy, one-screen ending.

14-0, 14 KO. I had a perfect, no-hit, 1st round TKO of Super Macho Man to win the World Title, then needed 3 rounds to TKO Tyson. Neither result was hugely surprising.

I kind of needed to go back to something familiar after another crash-and-burn on Firehawk. That game gets damned tough toward the end.

Alright, now I've really got to brag.

I just beat Tecmo Super Bowl with Green Bay. Not only are the Packers one of the weakest teams in the game, but I marched through the Giants, 49ers, and Bills to win the Super Bowl. I took a garbage team, and pounded my way through the three nastiest teams back-to-back-to-back to win the big game. (I crushed the Bills 39-13 in the Super Bowl, rolling up 32 unanswered points in the second half.) My regular season record was only 12-3-1, but I definitely feel good about the way I closed out.

Cosmos Cop (Famicom)

The version of the game on the Asder 20-in-1 is incredibly easy, unlike the version of the game on the Caltron 6-in-1 (NES). I only managed to survive the first level on the Caltron version a handful of times, while I just completed the Asder version on my first time playing it. I don't know how many differences there are between the two versions, as I haven't played the Caltron version since selling mine about two years ago.

But there is one HUGE difference: the gun only shoots single shots in the Caltron version. In the Asder, you get either a two or three shot burst for tapping the button, or you can just hold down the A button for continuous fire. The hit detection is a little sketchy in the game, so the kind of precision shooting the Caltron version demands is really pretty unfair. In that version, I pretty much gave up on the gun and only fired the ring weapon; since that weapon has both limited ammo and a slower firing rate, I spent much more time dodging enemies than trying to kill them. In the Asder version, I just put myself in a good  position against an enemy and sprayed a stream of bullets in their general direction. One bullet was bound to find its mark! And it worked, over and over until I had cut through the game like a hot knife through butter.

Top Hunter (Famicom)

This is a pretty easy light gun game on the Asder 20-in-1. I beat it on my first try. You shoot wolves trying to run off with your flock of sheep, trying to survive for some set length of time. Your sheep are reset at the start of each round, and after 20 rounds the game offers you its "Congratiations" and gives you a single screen of credits with some repeating music.

Well, Nintendo Age's 2014 Beat Every NES Game challenge has started. I kicked off my new year by beating 12 games. Kind of crazy to nearly match my total from last year in one day, but then again these were all games I knew well and am pretty good at. The only achievement of sorts was beating Duck Tales 2 on Normal difficulty. It was my second time beating the game, and I played it through on Easy the first time. I also knocked out Chip N Dale Rescue Rangers 2, Friday the 13th, Jaws, Mega Man 3, Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!!, Monopoly, Paperboy, RoboCop, and all three Super Mario Bros. games.

I also beat mega man 3 (actually rockman 3), a week ago.... It took me around 15 hours, but it was my first time playing. Had problem with some bosses and on two levels when you play the bosses again. Wily stages took their time too, and Dr Wily until I found out the easy way to beat him. I uploaded the videos yesterday, going to blog about it tomorrow....

Well, it took me a lot more than 15 hours to figure out Mega Man 3 my first time. Of course, I was a pre-teen when I first played the first five Mega Man games, and I practically memorized them by middle school. It still took me about an hour and a half to ice Mega Man 3 yesterday, and that was with only three or four deaths (and no game-overs).

I got back to the grind already this morning, as I knocked out Hogan's Alley, Home Alone, Panic Restaurant, Spot, and Wild Gunman for the NA challenge.

Hogan's Alley?  I didn't know you could finish it.  Granted I only play Game C but it goes on and on and on.


Title: Re: Last game you beat (including Famicom)
Post by: nerdynebraskan on January 03, 2014, 12:01:01 AM
I beat Godzilla this afternoon. An easy game, but it does take over 2 hours to complete.

Neither Hogan's Alley nor Wild Gunman have a definitive end. With repetitive, arcade-style games like those, NA's challenge is just typically to loop the game and get the high score. That's really a pretty low bar for most of those game. I went ahead and played Hogan's Alley until I was named a "sharp shooter" in each of the three phases, which meant that I'd at least doubled the high scores in each phase and played two to three times as many stages as "needed." With Wild Gunman, I actually racked up 100,000 points in each of the three modes, which was almost 10 times the preset high score. As it was, I was still completely done with both games in less than half an hour.

No great bragging rights on either of those, and I wouldn't even personally count them as "beaten" on my personal list. But I wanted to do a couple of quick, easy light gun games this morning, and I was pleased to find a couple of black-box classics still on the need-to-be-played list.

For some reason I never learnt to play light gun games. Even on Saturn I rather use the mouse for Virtua Cop, LOL. I currently do have a famicom lightgun for practice if I wanted. I played Gun Sight with it recently, I think not many know that Gun Sight has lightgun support. Blogged about it too, fun game and somewhat of a hidden gem in my opinion. Maybe I should try to beat it? ;) For my own "beat every famicom game" challenge. That would take a lifetime.
The unrewarding thing with the NA challenge is that the people who beat the games quickly are the ones that have already beaten them many times, so it doesn't give them much.

I knocked off Desert Commander for the Nintendo Age NES challenge today. It's kind of an interesting change of pace to beat up on childhood favorites for the challenge.

Your criticisms are true for especially the first week of January, which is kind of the "gold rush" season of the challenge. But the obvious classics are usually long-gone by the end of January at latest, and the hardcore players who stay with the thread for the rest of the year are often slogging through some obscure stuff. Fifteen of the sixteen games I beat for the challenge last year were ones I'd never beaten before, even if I'd owned half of them since childhood and had already seen the last stages of most of those. Of course, I didn't have much choice there given that I only joined the thread halfway through the year, but the idea of playing through the obscure games is probably my favorite part of the challenge.

I've wondered about a spinoff Beat Every Famicom Game, but that would probably be much less successful here. I suspect the amount of interest, if not ability, to beat all of the hundreds of J-RPGs, adventure games, and all the boring crap like the horse racing betting games would be very low here. And of course this board is much smaller to begin with.


Title: Re: Last game you beat (including Famicom)
Post by: fredJ on January 04, 2014, 10:50:53 AM
We'd have to limit ourselves to playable famicom games, or at least games with English translations. I think it would be interesting to see if anyone could beat famicom exclusive games like Ninja Jajamaru Kun, Ninja Hattori Kun, Warpman, Super Xevious, or Transformers Convoy No Nazo (I think this last game is practically impossible without save states). Holy Diver is also really hard on actual hardware without save states.
There's enough of playable famicom games that would keep us occupied for the full year, without having to go to horse racing games.
Also it would be interesting to see if someone could beat a game like Shadowgate or Deja Vu in Japanese, if they are experienced with the English version.

Flintstones: Surprise at Dinosaur Peak (NES)

The first game I've beaten for the NA Challenge this year that I hadn't completed before. Took me three serious attempts. The damn fire wheel in the last volcano stage was probably the toughest obstacle in the game. That, and the final boss was pretty tough the first few times I fought it.

I beat Shooting Range for the NA NES Challenge.

I'm a sucker for light gun games, and I have extra nostalgia for this one since I've had it since childhood. But this one is still kind of a glitch-fest.

I played it on Level-3 (the highest difficulty), and try as I might I beat it twice but didn't score more than 29,950. But to get a gold medal I'm supposed to score 40,000? I look up the FAQ on GameFAQs, and it says you get 10,000 bonus points for beating the bonus stage. That's bull. I beat the round both times on my Level-3 completions, but it never gave me my bonus. (That and the scores for hitting targets are much more random... "500 point" targets are randomly worth 200, 300, or 500 with no apparent pattern.)

I went back and played it on Level-1. I stomped the first two levels, and did a bit better on score. BOOM! It gives me the 10,000 bonus for clearing the second stage, before I even got to the bottle-blasting bonus stage. OK... I play the bonus stage, and actually run out of ammo before blasting the last bottle. Crap! But the bonus points are still there on my status screen after going to the menu screen to start the last stage... IN SPACE! I start shooting aliens, and I look down and my score doesn't reflect the bonus 10,000 anymore. Dammit! I beat the Giant Brain boss and finish the game. I go to the high score screen, and hey, the bonus is back and I've scored 45,000 points. I'm treated to the Gold Medal screen. Alright then. I'll accept a glitch in my favor and call this one beaten.

I just beat Mechanized Attack (NES) for the NA Challenge. Second time beating it, second year in a row getting credit for it for the challenge. This might actually be the best light gun game on the NES.

As for Contra, you'll need a bit more practice to beat it with three lives, but it's a fairly simple matter of memorization. The game will be exactly the same every time you play it.


Title: Re: Last game you beat (including Famicom)
Post by: Nightstar699 on January 12, 2014, 08:17:19 PM
Not to mention that Contra contains some of the weakest enemies/bosses in video game history. I love it, but the whole game is a cakewalk because your character is 1000x stronger than everything else in the game. I guess that's part of the appeal in it, it's interesting controlling a character who feels that powerful.

And I just got done beating Doraemon for Sega Mega Drive. Good game, reminds me a lot of Kero Kero Keroppi 2 on Famicom.

A real challenge would be to try to get through Contra without the Konami code and without picking up a spread gun. That powerup is absurdly powerful, and it makes it possible for Contra hardcores to play through the whole game without getting hit once.

I beat Terminator 2 for the NA Challenge a couple of hours ago. Second time beating it, and second time getting the credit for the challenge.

Then, I beat Who Framed Roger Rabbit for the first time. Another NA credit, and a major personal achievement for me considering how long and tedious that final fight is against Judge Doom.


Title: Re: Last game you beat (including Famicom)
Post by: Nightstar699 on January 12, 2014, 10:27:35 PM
I've no-death ran it without picking up any powerups, I still wouldn't consider that to be difficult. Now, playing through the game without dying, using the fire gun... that'd be tough. I've only attempted it a few times in my life, and it wasn't pretty.

I`m far gone from being able to finish Contra without getting hit, but I can see from my run through that its just a matter of memorization.

The bosses are ridiculously easy too...

Still, one of my favorite games.

I had a friend over, and we knocked out Ninja Crusaders (NES) in tag-team fashion for the NA Challenge. The game is far less aggravating with the Contra-style respawning at point of death rather than restarting the level after every death that you have to suffer through in single-player mode. Sorry, Nightstar, but I'm not as hardcore as you are.


Title: Re: Last game you beat (including Famicom)

Ah it's okay. It's good to see Ninja Crusaders getting some more playtime regardless of circumstance, I think I'll play it next myself.

This evening I played a couple games, Shinobi III on Genesis (I've had better runs, but still this one wasn't bad. Died just once, and it was to Neo-Zeed), and Cocoron on Famicom. (No deaths)

You can no-death Shinobi PS2? I've yet to play that game but I've heard it's brutally difficult so much respect for that.

I just got done playing through a couple Famicom games, first off I played Ninja Crusaders Ryuga as I previously foretold of... I actually played it through twice, the rust was real my first time around, so I decided to do it again, this time giving it a proper no-death run. And then I played Ninja Ryukenden III, I used to consider this my favorite game of the trilogy but I gotta admit I like the second installment better overall.

Next I'm going to play Super Ninja Kun on Super Famicom. It's been a very ninja past couple days for me. Even on Cocoron yesterday, I created and played a ninja-themed character for most the game.

I can only no-death run Shinobi on easy straight through mind.  To be honest you can blaze it with Joe, just takes longer.  You can race through with Moritsune but it's easier to make a mistake and have to restart.  The game's only hard on Hard, then very hard on Super Hard.  There's a challenge waiting for you there - but you'll have no trouble with the game once you get into it I'm sure.

Congrats on finishing Dino City so quickly as well!  I don't have the patience! :)

Thanks! Though I'd recommend you give it another shot, I beat it a couple times since then, actually, It's not so difficult aside from a few points where you have to creatively utilize your human character, those are tricky the first time around.

And I actually just beat Go Go Ackman 2 again, this time no continues were used... my first time achieving that for this game, although, I was down to my last life upon completion. Have you ever played any of the GGA games on Super Famicom? Or has anyone else here, for that matter?

I beat The Terminator (NES) for the NA challenge. It's my second time beating the game.

LET,

Nah, there's no prizes. We're just doing it for bragging rights. I'm currently in third place (out of around 50 members participating), so that's pretty exciting.

They're using a new scoring system this year. Each of the beatable games is assigned a value between one and ten, with the scores determined by how quickly a game has been beaten in previous versions of the challenge. For instance, I got one point for beating Super Mario Bros, because it's always one of the first to fall. And Paperboy 2 was worth ten, because it's usually one of the last (if it falls at all...). It's a novel system that bypasses the subjective difficulty of any given game, and one that fairly accurately rewards people for tackling longer, tougher, or more boring games.

There are few things cheaper or more aggravating than a boss with a gun in a beat 'em up game. In between my many attempts at that today, I also beat Cobra Command and Operation Wolf. Having done Dr. Chaos this morning, that gave me four more credits for the NA challenge. I'm going to be in second place when the standings are next updated!

You die in one hit, no way to replenish energy. And when you look at the overall design/enemy placement of Choujin Sentai Jetman, it was clearly a game intended to have one-hit kills, the other game modes are simply there for practice.

I just beat The Jetsons. A fun, but difficult, game. I'm glad I picked on it for the NA challenge.

Good job. That game sounds like one brutal son of a bitch. No surprise, as Taito's Flintstones series is also pretty difficult... besides perhaps Surprise at Dinosaur Peak. I played through a few games last night:

Daiku No Gen-San (Famicom, both loops cleared)
Castle of Illusion (Mega Drive)
Magical Taruruuto Kun (Mega Drive)
Yu Yu Hakusho 2 (Super Famicom, cleared tournament mode as Kuwabara)

'Super Mario 3D World' for Wii U. Not to 100% completion, because to fully complete the game, you need to beat EVERY level in the game at least FIVE times, once with each character. Every level × 4 (I beat every level once with Luigi, but not with the other four characters)  = ˇNo me gusta!

I just beat Shatterhand (NES) for the first time. Another conquest for the NA challenge.

I can't believe I missed this, congratulations! I'd have to consider Shatterhand to be the best game the NES has to offer, despite my personal love (nostalgia) for Kirby's Adventure. Which bot combo did you like the best? Oh, and did you have the robot suit activated when you fought the final boss?


Title: Re: Last game you beat (including Famicom)
Post by: nerdynebraskan on February 22, 2014, 12:01:45 PM
I generally preferred the bot who threw the bombs diagonally-down at the enemies in front of me (beta-beta-beta?). That was usually a good angle for me, and it seemed to do more damage than many of the other options. The final boss was honestly not even the hardest one in the game. I was getting him flashing without a bot or a punch upgrade. But when I got in there with the suit and ten seconds to use it, he didn't have a chance.

Now, that sword bot on the elevator? HE was a bastard. I don't know if I could ever beat him without the suit. They really neutered him in the rematch in the second-to-last level, because they took away the gears in the background that could damage you in the original fight.

I haven't beat Shatterhand/Solbrain yet, I haven't sat down with it properly yet but that first stage doesn't get boring either.

Beat VS. Castlevania for the first time tonight.  Hardest stage is stage 3 for sure.  I raced through stages 4 and even 5 somehow, but it took me a few goes to beat Drac, 3 hits and you're gone.  Only one less than normal, but when you get to the second quest - man, enemies take off 8 points.  Yes, double medusa heads on Stage 2 and they all take off 8 points... Gonna look forward to clearing that!

BBB, also known as the Grenade Bot is definitely among the strongest in the game, that grenade does great damage. Technically speaking the strongest bot would be ABB, the one which throws discs that ricochet off of surfaces. Because of this, it has a lot of range and versatility, although its projectiles are weaker than those of Grenade Bot. My favorite bot would have to be ABA, the Katana Bot. I just love the animation on that sword swipe, and I'm a sucker for some good close range combat. Not to mention, there's a few points in the game where I think it's the technically preferred bot, like the submarine stage, it slices through those biological messes with ease.

I haven't beat Shatterhand/Solbrain yet, I haven't sat down with it properly yet but that first stage doesn't get boring either.

Beat VS. Castlevania for the first time tonight.  Hardest stage is stage 3 for sure.  I raced through stages 4 and even 5 somehow, but it took me a few goes to beat Drac, 3 hits and you're gone.  Only one less than normal, but when you get to the second quest - man, enemies take off 8 points.  Yes, double medusa heads on Stage 2 and they all take off 8 points... Gonna look forward to clearing that!

When the time comes, please make sure to play both Shatterhand, AND Solbrain. Area C is a completely different level between the two versions, and I'd be curious as to which you prefer.

I'm not sure how different VS. Castlevania is from the original, but I played through Castlevania on NES yet again last night, and I have to nominate stage four as the toughest in the game. The randomness in its first (underground) half is enraging. Still, I love the original Castlevania a lot, I'd have to say it's my second favorite in the series, after IV.

Also, a first time completion in the past few days: Papuwa-Kun on Super Famicom. Already beaten it three times, and it's safe to say... yep, one of my favorite games now.

Is that like playing the whole game through again for a couple extra Pokémon?

I got my stages mixed up on VS. Castlevania - I meant to say stage 4, not 3 is hardest.  I did nearly run out of time on Stage 3 though, had one second to spare.

Basic differences are, the game starts off with damage levels of the second quest, then gives you a strict time limit on top of that.  You don't have time to be careful sometimes or collect the usual amount of hearts.  I forgot about this and ran out of time on the first stage.  The first stage!

It's more like playing the whole game again on a new save file with just a few different random encounters. Then you would have to trade the new pokemons to the other game (but I supposed you would need two 3DSs in order to trade, plus the save files are locked to the 3DS it's played on AFAIK) if you want to have all pokemon on one game. This is assuming the Pokemon series is still using the same concept as the original.

Arcade versions usually have a high difficulty level but wow! I gotta test those VS games on my Everdrive some time. I saw that lots of them have patches to make them work on a Famicom including VS Hogan's Alley.


Title: Re: Last game you beat (including Famicom)
Post by: L___E___T on February 24, 2014, 12:00:59 PM
I haven't tried VS Hogan's Alley just yet, but yes VS Castlevania gave me some challenge.  Still wouldn't say it's as hard as Ghosts 'N' Goblins yet though.  Not sure what the default difficulty is on VS. Castlevania, but you can adjust it with dipswitches.

Last night, I beat P'Radikus Conflict (NES) for the first time. It's definitely one of the best Color Dreams games, and a fairly unique NES game to boot. It's basically an Asteroids-style space shooter with action-RPG and space exploration elements.

The difficulty is a bit uneven, with the third mission being quite a bit more difficult than the four that come after it. Then, the last level becomes incredibly hard. I struggled with it for a couple of hours (ah, infinite continues...), before catching a very helpful glitch. When being given the last mission, you get a full supply of the Thunderbolt, which is the most powerful special weapon in the game. But if you re-read the mission briefing, it'll resupply you infinitely. Once I started firing Thunderbolts liberally, the game was conquered pretty quickly.

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. The controls were a lot better in this game than in the Wii version of Twilight Princess, but I'm still not very fond of this whole motion control thing.

I love that game too! I thought it would be much more like Wind Waker and Twilight Princess (my two least favourite Zelda games although they are still great games) but it easily beats those two games. I was amazed of how good the motion plus feature was. I had heard lots of criticism of the controlls but I can't find anything about it to complain at. It's definitely a game worthy to be part of the Zelda series. I never had time to play through the whole game though. Last time I played I got the last of the three flames.

I just completed part of the quest of Song of Hero. I hear this quest is where the game breaking glitch appears. I understand that I should have nothing to worry about if I take the desert part last.

How is it the best but still not your favourite? Isn't "best" also only personal opinion?
It's definitely very good even for a Zelda game, but it's hard to beat Zelda 3 and Ocarina in terms of the best Zelda.


Title: Re: Last game you beat (including Famicom)
Post by: L___E___T on April 07, 2014, 10:58:45 AM
I was hoping someone would ask me to clarify.

In short, what I call favourite = my fondest memories, best = which I think offers (and fulfils) the most for players generally.  Both are subjective of course, as is all critique to some extent.


Zelda3, Link's Awakening and Ocarina of Time I enjoyed all well after they released.  To put that into perspective, the Z targetting system in OOT wasn't new for me, the graphics hadn't aged well at all, the difficulty spikes tiresome, the damnfairy incessantly annoying, among other things.  the game just didn't wow me in comparison to Wind Waker, which I enjoyed a lot more perhaps because it was newer and easier.

Likewise Zelda 3 and Link's Awakening I played later as well - but again in comparison to Minish Cap I just didn't enjoy them nearly as much.  I am definitely no graphics whore for want of a better term, they just didn't feel as well crafted.  Ironically I didn't get that with Zelda 1 and I didn't get that at all with Zelda G&W, the first Zelda game I ever played and went back to at the same time.  I never played Zelda 1 until 5 years ago, so I don't think it is just nostalgia, maybe they weren't in that retro sweet spot, but also lacked the rose-tinted effect of memories from a playthrough at release.


It's a bit like looking at a car collection - a collector may call the Lamborghini Miura his 'favourite' car, but the best performing in his garage may be a brand new Aventador.  It depends on what you judge them on.  I am a nostalgia fiend more than anything, but when games reach a a certain age I think I get that nostalgia even if I didn't play them way back when they were released perhaps.

There are some people that argue that your favourite is also what you call the best - because the games that do what they do best hit those emotions that favourites do - but I think calling something the best is not as personal, while a favourite is entirely personal.  To me that marks the difference.  I know it's commonly thought that ALTTP and Link's Awakening along with OOT are the 'best', but for mew I just didn't enjoy them as much as the Wii releases, they had more frustrations and annoyances than the Wii releases and they also were less pleasant to play generally than the Wii releases, so I do rank Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword above all three of those.  2D Zelda wise, I am sticking to Minish Cap as the best, it's fluid animation, structured gameplay and the way it handles the lore I think are better crafted than Zelda 3 or LA - but still not as original and charming as Zelda 1!


Title: Re: Last game you beat (including Famicom)
Post by: P on April 07, 2014, 09:59:47 PM
I see what you are saying. Certainly I probably give Zelda2, Zelda3 and maybe even Ocarina lots of bonus points just because of all the found memories of them. While I played WW and TP as an adult and with much much more critical eyes.

Zelda 2 was incredibly difficult for the very young me but I still insisted on playing it, and now it's permanently an important part of my childhood. If I try to discount my childhood memories of the game, I regard the game as a great action RPG with a very cool and well-made battle system.

Zelda 3 was AMAZING! I dreamed about the game, in school we could talk about the game for hours, and me and my brother often just played around in the game without even trying to get to the next goal. It was like a whole magical world to us. Today the game is still gorgeous. I'm not sure if I can look at this game with objective eyes though lol.

Ocarina was the most anticipated game I ever been waiting for, and yet it's a rare example of a game that fulfilled all my high expectancies and even exceeded them. I don't see why you think this game is hard but yet you have no problem with Zelda1 or Links Awakening which are both much harder IMHO. I think the difficultly (in terms of monsters, not in terms of puzzles) are this game's one and only real flaw. All other Zeldas before and after this game seems harder to me. The only really hard non-boss enemy in the game is the Iron Knuckle and there are very few of them.

I can't see what's so good about Minnish Cap though. It's a great game but I regard it along with the other Capcom Zeldas, as very different experiences that can't really be compared with Zelda games because they don't quite feel like Zelda games.

I don't get that car metaphor. If the Lamborghini Miura is your favourite, that's of course your subjective opinion. But whether the Aventador has the best performance or not is an objective fact that can't be argued against. Still I think I see your point. By best you mean the best game if you compare all the Zeldas objectively without considering nostalgia factors, thus it's still an subjective opinion. In that case earlier games like Zelda3 might loose points, if not for other reasons, because they are way too short compared to the 3D Zeldas.

When you say "best" is not personal you mean it has the potential to be the favourite of many people, as long as they have similar opinions as you (and thus it's in your own subjective opinion) but not the same memories of the games as you have. I totally buy that.

Thanks mate! I used to play the c64 version back in the day before I got the NES game. The latter is much more enjoyable today, it's a faster and a much more streamlined experience. So if you feel like giving it a go, definitely go for the NES version.

Edit: Just completed "The Goonies" on Famicom.

Edit: Today I finished a game of "North & South: Wakuwaku Nanboku Sensou" on Famicom. Played as a Level 1 South vs a Level 3 North in 1864 (Hardest campaign for the South). All "disasters" turned on.

Mission: Impossible (NES)

Just beat it for the first time, after working on it for weeks. It's probably the hardest game I've ever beaten, but it was definitely fun enough that I could see myself doing it every year for the NA challenge.

Post by: UglyJoe on April 15, 2014, 04:34:14 PM
Nice work :star:

I'll revisit the game one of these days.  How close was I to the end?  (I was at the claws in the last (?) stage).


Title: Re: Last game you beat (including Famicom)
Post by: nerdynebraskan on April 15, 2014, 04:41:39 PM
I think there's another 10 minutes worth of stuff to do between the claws and the ending credits. Most of it isn't too bad, with some practice. And you will get screwed at least five or six times figuring out what needs to be done. And then it's right back to the beginning of that long-ass last stage. And you'll pretty much need all three agents all the way to the end, too.

You shoot the claws with your soldier's rifle, and they blow up after about 15 shots. Definitely take out the bottom one first; it's much harder to dodge.

And I've always wanted to play Elite (NES); I thought it sounded like an awesome game. I even imported a cart a few years ago, but unfortunately it's one of those ones that glitches too hard to be playable in a US console. I've thought about importing a PAL console to play games like it and Beauty and the Beast, but I'm not sure I could get it to cooperate with my American TV anyway.

Good going on beating Mission: Impossible! Been meaning to give that one a spin, I was a fan of the show (though I prefer the 1966 series) but I never got far in the game when I was younger. Sounds like quite a challenge but at least they're kind enough to give you passwords along the way.

If you have a flashcart or want to build a repro and feel like trying out Elite on the NES; the unreleased NTSC version of the ROM is legally available on one of the original authors site found here: http://www.iancgbell.clara.net/elite/nes/

My goal this year is to beat 10 NES/Famicom games that I haven't finished before. I'm up to eight so far, so I may have to extend my goal!  ;D

So far I've finished: Legacy of the Wizard (NES); Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II (NES); Double Dragon II (FC);  The Goonies (FC); The Goonies II (NES); Boku Dracula-kun (FC); Bomberman (FC); and Getsu Fuma Den (FC).

Right now I'm working on Clash at Demonhead. Big ones on my list to beat are Blaster Master, Journey to Silius, and the first TMNT game.

I got everything in both games except one missile tank (it's so hard to get :() and the wave beam (I never use it).

Good job, especially since the wave beam is the easiest way to defeat Ridley and Kraid!

Me too! I beat it for the first time ever though, and I didn't even get her to take off her helmet :P She wasn't doing the crying animation at least so that's something. I skipped the wave beam altogether because the ice beam is more useful and the metroids are impossible to survive for me without being able to freeze them.

Good job, especially since the wave beam is the easiest way to defeat Ridley and Kraid!

Thanks mate! Kraid can be a little tough, I usually blast him with the few missiles I have then resort to bombing him until he's down. Ridley is easy though, freeze his fireballs and then feed him missiles until the fireballs begin to thaw, refreeze and more missiles. I seldom take any damage versus him.

Great! :) After you've got the map memorized getting a better ending isn't all that hard. It's really a wonderful game, well worth revisiting every now and then.

I finished Shadowgate on the NES this evening, haven't played it in ages. I got stuck at a couple of places but things clicked and I got through it in the end. Loved the game when I was younger, it still has that great atmosphere and the music is just great!

I always thought that you couldn't beat the game with the wave beam so I always take the wave beam first (because it's the strongest beam weapon) and then switch to ice beam later.

Although you don't need the wave beam, it's technically possible (albeit hard) to beat the game using it. On my route Norfair is done just before ridley so there's really no need to pick it up since Ridley is such a pushover using the ice beam and the normal enemies are kept at bay using the screwattack.

Just beat "Tatakai no Banka" on the Famicom. I used the continue code, but when you've gotten down the strategy for the bosses it's a pretty easy game. I think I'll try to do a run without continues during the week. Pretty fun game.

That hack looks good. Especially saving, minimap and beamstacking features. The graphics updates also looks good on pictures but I have to see the animations first before I make a judgement on that. I saw an earlier hack that was supposed to make Samus look better but the running animation was actually really bad.

On my route Norfair is done just before ridley so there's really no need to pick it up since Ridley is such a pushover using the ice beam and the normal enemies are kept at bay using the screwattack.
So you just have to avoid the metroids in Tourian if you have the wave beam instead of the ice beam?

I started playing the NES version and I realized that I DO take the ice beam first since it's useful and easily accessible in Brinstar early in the game. Then I probably just pick up the wave beam sometime when I'm going to Ridley. Then I have to pick up the ice beam again to stand a chance against the metroids. Maybe I should use the ice beam against Ridley this time though.

Even though I never beated Ridley I know I've been to Tourian as a kid. I probably used someone else's password where Ridley was already beaten. This time I'm gonna beat the whole game!

Oh another question, do you go to Kraid's lair before going to Norfair? I remember I used to beat Kraid by emptying my missile tanks in his face, but to do that I probably need to go to Norfair first and collect more missile tanks.

I first do Brinstar then Kraid, Norfair and finally Ridley. As I mentioned earlier I defeat Kraid by using the few missiles I have and when they run out I roll up into a ball and bomb the crap out of him. Doesn't take long to defeat him as they do pretty good damage. As long as you've got 3 energy tanks you should be able to finish him off easily!

OK I'm more or less done with Brinstar except I haven't got the Varia yet (not sure how you get it).
Speaking of the Varia I just looked in the Japanese manual and the Varia is spelled as "Baria" in Japanese. "Varia" is technically not a wrong romanization of the word but when I look at the picture in the manual where you can see that the item forms a force field barrier around Samus, it's clear to me that the intended meaning was most likely the English word "Barrier" and not Varia.

You can get the Varia early by doing a standing double bomb jump, requires some practice but it's not that hard. Otherwise you need to detour to Norfair for the high jump boots.
Yeah, I've read about that mis-romanization, they most probably meant "Barrier" but "Varia" still sound pretty cool and have of course since been cemented into the metroid mythos. :)

I just completed "Tatakai no Banka". This time with no continues, I got it on the first try.


Title: Re: Last game you beat (including Famicom)
Post by: P on May 03, 2014, 01:00:36 PM
Yeah I guess. Even the Japanese versions have the in-game romanisation of Varia Suit in later games I think. And since Metroid II the Varia upgrade doesn't just change the colour palette, but also changes the appearance of her power suit, indicating that the suit is physically upgraded as well.

I managed to beat Kraid! I post my latest attempts in the proper thread though: http://www.famicomworld.com/forum/index.php?topic=164.msg147809#msg147809

Daiku no Gen-San. Also know as Hammerin' Harry. I swear this game has some flawed controls in the jump it sometimes delays or sometimes I don't jump at all when I press the button but it only happens sometimes. Seem to especially happen on that run to the final boss with the fountains. Anyone else run into this problem?

As a long-time fan of the game, I can't say that I've ever had that issue. However, that sounds exactly what I experience sometimes when I play Doki Doki Yuuenchi... jumps not coming out for seemingly no reason. Huh. Did you clear the second loop of Gen-San? I'd recommend it, it cranks up the difficulty big time.

Omg hammerin' Harry 2 is one of most intense and hardest platforming games I've ever challenged. Please look up my old posts in this thread when I talk about beating this game. That rival boss you face in the junkyard in shooter mode had my number for like an hour no joke. I'm a platformer guy was not expecting such an intense shooter level.

Willow (NES)

@ Jedi

Yeah, those are probably the two most brutal parts of the whole game. The crazy thing is you have to face that room full of flamethrower guys twice to clear the last stage, but I actually got to be pretty good at it with a little practice. Your actor's boomerangs actually work really well; with a little practice you can hit them twice and eliminate them with one shot. Definitely get used to hitting them diagonally; harder to pull off, but it also gives you favorable angles to avoid their fire.

Metroid (NES)

On my way back to Brinstar after beating Ridley, I found a missile tank I had missed. And with that I probably had more than enough missiles to complete the game I thought so I headed for Tourian. The statues raised and the bridge to Tourian was materialized before me. Those metroids are really dangerous even though I know their weakness. But I also found out that I could absorb a good chunk of life or missile energy from them after defeating them, so keep fighting them was a perfect way to heal.

After destroying every metroid in sight I finally arrived in the mother brains room. The Mother Brain was nothing like Kraid or Ridley, it's easily the hardest boss in the game. The rinka are very dangerous because they come out from nowhere and smack you from behind all the time. I managed to destroy every zebetite that keeps the mother brain alive but even then I died several times trying to blast the mother brain with missiles (damn rinka!). Finally I defeated her and escaped before the bomb exploded. There shouldn't be anymore metroids on Zebes now.

Great going there P! What ending did you get?

Just completed Balloon Kid on the Gameboy. It was pretty hard, but since I've practiced all day and happened to find a fool proof strategy on the final boss I beat it with 9 lives left.

Edit: Finished Duck Tales on Gameboy as well. Loved that the stages weren't just carbon copies of the NES game, it was a bit harder though mainly because the control felt slightly off.

Oh Duck Tales to Gameboy. I used to borrow that game from my cousin when I was a kid and I have probably played it more than the NES version. It's mostly the same game, the stages are just arranged differently. I'm still confused when I play the Famicom/NES version because the stages edged into my mind is still that of the Gameboy version. Especially the more confusing levels like the moon and the castle.

As for me, well last night I beat all the scenarios on Sensha Senryaku: Sabaku no Kitsune (FC). I wrote a little more about that in the thread, "List of Famicom/NES Game Differences" since I'm already very familiar with its NES version: Desert Commander.

Brought my Famicom over to a buddy's house to play some of the games I got recently. We ended up playing Super Mario Bros. 3 all the way through (no warps). I had never played the slightly-more-difficult Famicom version. My friend grew up playing mostly Super Mario World, so 3 was pretty tough for him (I completed probably 90% of the stages).  :help:

Anyway. Man. That game is perfection. I always find something new in it, too. Like I had no idea that there were two different Bowser rooms.

Post Merge: May 13, 2014, 02:58:29 AM
Tonight I finished Faxanadu, an RPG I played a lot as a kid but never finished . I remember reaching the latter parts of the game when I was younger, but I can't recall if I was using Game Genie or not (I played to the end of many NES games as a kid using the ol' Genie...I just wasn't skilled or patient enough to beat them at the time).

The stiffest challenges, I thought, came in the misty areas midway through the game, where the enemies' strength was somewhat higher than yours, and the final dungeon, which required dutiful mapping. The last two bosses were both pretty tough, too.  :fire:

I loved the king's last line to you: "What a restless guy!"

Oh, and one other thing. If any of you are about to play through this game for the first time, here's some advice: DO NOT collect the amulet at the end of one of the misty area dungeons. It's supposed to increase your sword's strength, but due to a bug, it actually decreases it. The game registers the dungeon as completed as long as you defeat the boss; the amulet isn't necessary. I ended up generating a password to get me to the same point in the game but without the amulet, just so I didn't have to bear that burden any longer.  :-[

Lode Runner (NES)

No real ending to speak of. Beat Stage 50, and the game loops back to Stage 1 without any acknowledgement. But I did beat all 50 stages, so that's really all you can do. I'll have to try Championship Lode Runner (FC) again someday; I've never been able to beat a single stage of that.

I also dig New Ghostbusters II and Super CastleVania IV, but I've never seen either of them to the end. Someday...

I just finished Kawa no Nushi Tsuri on the Famicom. A little grind heavy in the middle perhaps, but a fantastic game it was. I loved that you got to walk back to the village (not bothered by enemies) once you'd caught the river master, gave the whole adventure some scope and closure.

Cool I gotta try to beat that game sometime. Was it short?

Walking back with the river king without encounters, I guess it was the same on the Gameboy game that was released in English? Dragon Quest games are almost always like that after you beat the final boss, you can go back and talk to all people in every town and all monsters are gone. Mother 2 was also like that I think.

I SORTA beat Blaster Master, a game I've owned since childhood and have repeatedly attempted to complete. As a kid I could reliably get to Area 4, but very rarely past that point - possibly because I simply had to turn off the NES by then! In the past the farthest I'd gotten was Area 5. This time I got all the way to the end of the game.

I say "sorta" beat because by the time I finally got the end of Area 8, I was on the last two lives of my last continue. On the second life I got to the final boss' second form, and even though I knew the trick to beating him, it didn't quite work and he whipped me to death.

Discouraged at having to trek through that entire game again (this first playthrough I left my NES on for three or so days), I decided to use a Game Genie code to put me at the final boss' door. I'd thought I would just use a stage select code and go through all of Area 8 again, but that code starts you without any of Sophia's upgrades, making it impossible to proceed.

But anyway, with a non-upgraded Jason I was able to beat the final boss on the second try, and I consider this book closed.  :fire:

It wasn't overly long and somewhat linear, but highly recommended, especially if you're a fan of the series.

No, the Gameboy version cuts to the ending as soon as you catch the River King, but you can continue playing after the credits. That's a cool feature, didn't know the Dragon Quest games had that. I haven't beaten any DQ games as of yet, got pretty far in the first one about 8 years ago or so, but for some reason I never finished it. I will try again sometime in the future!

I've beaten South Park The Stick of Truth. Great game for my money, but I'm a South Park fan. Though I'll say it wasn't any of Matt & Trey's best writing. Seems that since they didn't have an issue to tackle they sort of devolved into gross-out a bit too often. Still, very funny and good.

Beat Konami Wai Wai world tonight. The game was tough in some areas, but I had seen Arino complete it on one of the GCCX episodes, so I knew I could do it too.

Overall, I think the game suffers from some poor design choices - the level layouts are bland, the difficulty is all over the place - but the art and music is great and it's got that Konami flair. And since I was already a fan of most of the games represented on the cart, well, I was an easy sell. I'd like to track down the sequel too.

Don't forget how you always walk 75% to the right of the screen instead of the middle making it easier for enemies to take you by surprise.

I beat Megaman X4 late last night, an boy was it hard. I had just recorded a top 10 hardest games I've ever beaten list and now I have to revise it. Having to beat all three forms of Sigma in one go felt very harsh. The only glimmer of hope was that the energy pickup just before Sigma came back after every life which (slowly) allowed me to refill my subtanks.
Sigma's first form is very easy but the second form wasn't, but eventually I got it down to beating him without getting hit when I knew what the trick to him was.
The final final form of him had it's little methods but was even harder and took a lot of tries as well.
When I beat it the time was 01:38 or so and I'm working today. But I couldn't give up either because I knew quitting and continuing meant having to beat all 8 mavericks again which is hard in itself without using up both subtanks.

Congratulations, I've beaten it a few times recently too, and I agree that it's brutal. Sigma's second form took me a while to learn, and his third form just made me feel helpless. I can beat it without E-tanks now, but it's always a close battle... almost too close...

Yeah, the scrolling is pretty bad.

X4 was probably the only PSX-era Mega Man X game that I really enjoyed. I never actually completed X6. It's been a long while since I played through it, but I do remember the Sigma battle being pretty tough.

Akira on the Famicom. First I shot Tetsuo with the laser and got a pretty simple ending. Felt like a strange outcome, nothing like the movie, so I went on the internet and learned that there are different endings. So I used my last password (which was way back) and tried to get a better result. Then I got the one where Tetsuo meets Akira in the final scene and it doesn't appear to be the best one either. Anyone got any ideas on what the prerequisites for the best ending are?

Nekketsu Kouha Kunio-kun finally I beat the Famicom version! The reason I met multiple Misuzus before is because I was at the final stage and you meet a lot of clones of old bosses there. It's possible to skip the boss Misuzu on her stage, which is what I accidently did, and when I met her clones on the final stage I thought it was the normal boss fight with her.

Also I figured out how to beat her. You run away from her and then turn against her and do a jump kick. She will run into it face first, then you quickly do two more jump kicks and she will fall to the ground. Then repeat.

So I finally got a working copy of Metroid for the FDS and I just completed it. I was anxious that I'd run into an error code every time it loaded a new area so it was kind of an ordeal. One difference between the NES version and the FDS version that never seems to get mentioned is that you always start in Brinstar no matter where you save your game. Also the final showdown vs. Motherbrain seemed much harder, the rinkas can totally destroy you here.

I actually died at Motherbrain, and when I reloaded the game and went to pick up the energy tank in the roof in the beginning (I always leave it for last so I don't need to grind) it was gone. The bridge to Tourian was also activated. So it seem like the FDS version saves some data to disk each time you load a new area.

I had to grind some Metroids for health, though I died at Motherbrain again. So reload, more grinding (saying good bye to the best ending) and then, finally, I destroyed MB. As the ending was loading I got an Err. 27. Fuuuuu! I ejected and reinserted the disk around 5 times and suddenly the ending loaded. Got the best ending after all. :) I also got really lucky with that tricky jump for that one missile tank, so I even got 100% items in this run.

I also went through Hanjuku Hero again earlier today.


Title: Re: Last game you beat (including Famicom)
Post by: P on June 12, 2014, 10:02:49 PM
Heh I wasn't smart enough to save that energy tank for last so I had to grind for energy before Tourian (then I realized that metroids gives off tons of energy when killed).

Anyway cool findings. You should post them here http://www.famicomworld.com/forum/index.php?topic=383.0. Oh I should post our findings about Paluthena and Kid Icarus there too!

Done! I checked some videos on Youtube and the Rinkas/Lasers seem to do 15 points of damage in both the NES and FDS version. Don't know why I had so much trouble there, haven't died in that hall in ages. Read somewhere that there's less lag in the FDS version (though I occasionally thought it was the opposite way around whilst playing) perhaps that's the reason I failed twice. Less reaction time, i.e. no "8bit bullet-time" ;)

youkai yashiki "monster house" on the famicom disk system no death run did it in about 20 minutes it took a lot of trial and error to get that good of a time and no death is a must because if you die you lose everything and it's so hard to get it back. The game can be very confusing but once you learn the levels it's a breeze. I'm thinking of doing a "play it through" video of it.

Hostages: The Embassy Mission on Famicom. Middle Mode, Trigger Mission. Went for the "No casualties" ending, it was pretty hard getting the third sniper in place but I eventually did it. I believe the Famicom version has got different controls during the last part of the game. I think in the western version you turn using left/right and advance in the arrow's direction by pressing up, whereas in the Famicom version you simply press the d-pad in the direction you want to move. Good game anyhow.

Edit: Just found out that you can select the control type (direct or rotate) by pressing select on the map before you rappel down.

Edit: Nekketsu Koukou Dodgeball Bu: Kyouteki! Doukyuu Senshi no Maki on Gameboy. Awful controls and hard as nails, I completed it on easy mode.

Hammerin Harry 2 for the famicom was not as hard as I remembered. great game that rival shooter boss is much easier to beat with a sub weapon beat him first try. Still some intense platforming on that last stage. I think I may have got the bad ending cause I had the professor laughing at me at the end and can't read Japanese so don't know what he was saying game just started over from the beginning. Maybe nightstar can shed some light on this I know he is a big fan of the series.

Sure thing, Jay. I will follow wherever Gen-San advice is needed.

First off congrats on clearing Gen-San 2 yet again. That final stage pretty much never gets easier, those vertical jumping segments are so hard and luck-based. Regarding the ending, just like the first game in the series, Daiku No Gen-San 2 requires you to beat two loops to get the better ending. In Daiku No Gen-San 1, the second loop is MUCH more difficult than the first, but in Gen-San 2? The second loop isn't much different, in fact, the only real difference I've noticed is that the final boss is a lot more aggressive in the second loop... but he's still not too tough.

So yeah, if you want to get the better ending (with a couple additional panels, I believe) then feel free to play the second loop of the game. Just know that it won't be very different from the first loop.

I beat Nekketsu Kouha Kunio-kun: Bangai Rantou Hen and Downtown Nekketsu Koushinkyoku: Dokodemo Daiundoukai on the Gameboy yesterday. I really enjoyed Koushinkyoku, more so than the Famicom version actually.

Today I also completed Bikkuri Nekketsu Shinkiroku: Dokodemo Kin Medal. It wasn't bad, but buttonmashing on the Gameboy doesn't work all that well. Had to buy a few more items than usual to compensate. Also my favourite event from the Famicom version, the Swimming Battle Royale, is not in the game. Instead there's this Umbrella game that hasn't got nearly the same amount of strategy involved. But all in all not a bad game.

Edit: Beat Nekketsu Koukou Soccer Bu: World Cup Hen on Gameboy earlier today. Very hard game in the last few matches, I figured out a pretty solid strategy though.

That's all the Gameboy Nekketsu games completed! :)

I had to keep my poor NES on for almost 12 hours straight while I continued to grind on this game, since this is one of those games that has to be beaten in one sitting. It's a good thing that you can endlessly farm extra continue powerups in-game.

I just beat Golgo-13: Top Secret Episode (NES) for the first time.

The maze sections are pretty annoying, so I used maps on GameFAQs to navigate them. (I also needed the FAQ to tell me about a couple of hidden doors in the action stages.) Definitely cryptic in places, but a decent effort gameplay-wise and exceptionally deep on the storytelling by NES standards.

Ahh thank you, but it's nothing. I've no-deathed in the past, it's just... the previous time I played Ninja Gaiden, I failed pretty miserably (I got frustrated and was forced to use a continue), so this was like a nice redemption playthrough for me. Also, I just got done with Darkwing Duck on NES, still love that game.

How did you find it?  I breezed through much quicker than I expeted to be able to - but partly because I was having so much fun with it.

Defintely a game I'll revisit at some point.

Resident Evil 5 on PS3 with the PS Move.

Holy Diver on the famicom the hardest game I've ever beaten. The game has ruthless difficulty. I admit I had to use the 1up trick to get through this game but I could make it to level 5 without continuing. I'm mentally exhausted from beating this game.

Kid Icarus: Of Myths and Monsters - This is one of those Nintendo made games that was never released in Japan. Which is strange since the original game sold best in Japan according to this chart http://www.vgchartz.com/game/6307/kid-icarus/. It was released for 3DS Virtual Console in Japan though.

This game is easier than the original.

Kirby's Dream Land and Trax on Gameboy.

Edit: Samurai Shodown on Gameboy. Charlotte, Hard difficulty, including Kuroko & Hikyaku. Only lost one round, vs. Kyoshiro (heh). Score: 590650 (Pretty low by my own standards).

This game is easier than the original.

Being on a Gameboy romp lately, I also beat Myth and Monsters again a few days ago. The levels are indeed much easier, however I've always thought the bosses were a fair deal harder than in the FC/NES game. Nothing too difficult anyway.


Title: Re: Last game you beat (including Famicom)
Post by: P on July 16, 2014, 02:40:48 PM
You are right about that. The bosses were quite easy (if you have been training) in the original but in the Game Boy game they are often very hard. Especially the Minotaur.

The levels are easier because 1) you can't fall off the screen and die like in the original because it scrolls down as well and there are no pits (except the main character). 2) There are small glasses of wine of life that refills small bits of life, these can be found in almost every icarus statue and even as an enemy drop instead of hearts. 3) Big wine of life replenishes itself when you exit a door (in the original it disappears if you exit a door even if you haven't taken it yet). 4) It's easy get points and hearts early on in the game since enemies respawn. 5) Hot springs are in pretty much every level although often hidden.

The original game is hardest in the beginning of the game due to Pit being weak, easy to fall and it's not easy to get hearts and points early on (only certain enemies respawn).

Next I'm going to play Metroid II since I completed Metroid recently.

RC Pro-Am II (NES)

There's not much of an ending to this one. If you survive the last track (36), you just get shown your score relative to your computer opponents and jump to the High-Score screen and back to the main title screen. (Which is exactly the same result as a game-over.) I finished second to one of the computers in overall points, but I also took the High-Score (which doesn't count the scores of the computer players, obviously). It would've been nice to finish first, but I can always try again later.


Title: Re: Last game you beat (including Famicom)
Post by: P on July 20, 2014, 07:32:11 AM
I thought the game loops back to track 1 like the first game. I don't remember if I cleared all tracks but I played RC Pro-Am II quite a bit in the past.


Cleaned up SR388 in Metroid II! It was much easier than the first Metroid, the enemies are scarce (I guess the metroids and the X killed most of the creatures on the planet) although there are lots of bosses (about every metroid is like a boss or mini boss) you seldom have to worry about your energy getting depleted from normal enemies unlike in the first game. The queen was very hard and took me several tries, which made it very satisfying to beat her in the end. Great ending too.

Time for Super Metroid. That's yet another Metroid game I've played multiple times in the past but never really beaten.

Post by: P on July 20, 2014, 03:34:11 PM
05:50 I guess that's the second worst ending, I didn't exactly hurry through the game though. The game is not half as confusing as the first game much thanks to the linearity of the game. It's probably the most linear of all Metroid games, since you just need to clean all metroids in a certain area before an earthquake happens and the acid in the tunnels leaks out and you can go to the next area. Each area is often quite big though and often a bit confusing.

Now the last metroid is in captivity, and the galaxy is at peace. Great game indeed. :)

Post by: nerdynebraskan on July 20, 2014, 04:33:50 PM
P,

RC Pro-Am II doesn't loop infinitely like the first game does. It just game-overs after completing the last track. A pretty poor ending for an otherwise excellent game.

I have achieved my goal with Cosmos Cop. I managed to beat it on two deaths, using no primary weapon, and destroying the Chief boss with less than 130 rounds of my secondary weapon. I hope I can earn my completion credit for it in the Nintendo Age challenge.

I also beat the orginal Metroid on my 3DS XL today. I used to find this game waaay too brutal, but that was because I attempted going to Kraid's Hideout without even going to Norfair at all. I learned that going to Norfair early on and getting the High Jump Boots, Screw Attack, and Wave beam made the game sooo much easier. I only died 2 times (not counting Mother Brain) and used the virtual console's save state feature for saving right before the final battle. I didn't get the best ending, I think I had the 3rd or 4th best. I also got all items except 2 missles and the energy tank near the starting point in Brinstar. Now that I beat it without the cheat code, I find this game pretty easy. Next time I will try to beat it without the map.

I tried playing Metroid Fusion right after, but all the talking and cut scenes make the game a pain in the ass to play. I think I'm going to get Kid Icarus 3D Classics on the 3DS XL with my Club Nintendo points. I have it for both FDS (selling it, not keeping) and have the NES cart, but I really like how nice the 3DS version looks. I have never gotten past the first dungeon in this game. I have nearly beaten the GB one, but I find the last boss way to hard. I also have beaten Metroid II a long time ago and found it kinda easy.

And I agree with Darkwing Duck, it's a great Capcom Disney game! I never hear anyone talk about it. Another criminally underated NES game is Conquest of the Crystal Palace. It's an unknown gem and has very deep gameplay, awesome graphics and sound, and I haven't really gotten past the third level. I should play this again soon!

50 tedious, aggravating levels to be beaten in one sitting, just for the game to loop back to level 1 without an ending. And the game doesn't even keep score, so there's no point in continuing after that. But I can now say that I've beaten all six of the games that appeared on the Caltron 6-in-1.

I finally beat Super Metroid! Ridley wasn't that hard although very durable. Mother Brain was also much easier than the last boss in the two earlier games, didn't even need to use crystal flash.

What a broken, horrible game! When I heard about the glitch on the stairs to give you virtual invincibility, I had to knock this one out at least once for my own personal records. (Seeing it was still needed for the NA challenge was a good bonus, too.) This was one of my first five NES games, and it's still bitterly disappointing to me how badly this one was made. And it's not cheating to exploit the game's glitching against itself; it's kusoge ju-jitsu!

Cub Adventure (Famicom)

Well, I've beaten my first Nice Code game. This one really didn't make it hard on me, either. The entire game is just three, single-screen stages. All you do is dodge slow-moving (and completely predictable) enemies and collect items. Imagine my surprise two or three minutes into my first playthrough to be greeted with "End." I went ahead and played it a second time to be sure it wasn't a glitch; after collecting the helicopter hat to fly away from stage 3, the "End" was back again.

Sadly, this one could've been interesting if they'd put a bit more work into it...

Magical pop'n for the super famicom. Been a while since I've Beaten it. Had to use a continue. Was a little disappointed in myself but over all still a good run. I was being really sloppy in the first stage. Cost me two men.

I thought the game's sense of humor was exceptional in general, but that "glitch" was definitely a highlight. It's not every day that you get trolled by an NES game, afterall.

Primal Rage on Gameboy. Armadon, Level 8. I didn't lose a round but used 2 continues in the Final Battle (6 opponents in a row without any health refill).

Edit: Just managed to beat Primal Rage (GB) on Level 8 with Armadon, not losing a single round and using no continues in the Final Battle. Score: 9190156. No special ending but doing it without continues nets you a shit ton of points.

I beat the last mission of Conflict (NES) last night on my first try. I was playing on the lowest difficulty (Fame Points Level 1), but this game is already tedious enough when I start with enough FP to actually build new units.

@ Jedi

Was that the NES version of Paperboy 2? I've beaten it a couple of times, and yeah the single-screen newspaper ending is not the most interesting one after beating such a tough game. (But you have to admit it's a fairly appropriate one.)

Post by: Ghegs on October 05, 2014, 08:40:05 AM
Got Solomon's Key 2 a few weeks ago and I've been playing it ever since. Such an excellent game, you can tell it's a late Famicom release with the great graphics, animation and music. Gameplay-wise it's kind of different from the first game and obviously made exclusively for a console rather than being an arcade port. The Famicom version also has some differences to the NES version, in the former you can take back your previous moves with the Select button (infinitely, it seems), which makes it easy to test a solution out and then return to a previous state without having to reset the whole puzzle. I guess it makes the game a tad easier overall, but I'm quite happy not to have to reset the puzzle just because I accidentally erased a block I didn't mean to. And the Famicom version allows you to save your progress to the battery rather than having to use a 24-character password. There's even three save slots. (EDIT: Just noticed at least one of the puzzles has a slightly different layout in the NES version.)

Like I said, I've been playing it a lot, and I even got stuck on a few puzzles for days at a time. In the end I persevered and finished the last of the game's 100 levels today without resorting to any hints, walkthroughs or Youtube videos. Really happy about that.

And man, the game kept surprising me to the end. When I reached The End screen, I noticed that I couldn't return to the main screen, so I just set the controller down and turned away from the TV to check something on the computer. When I looked back, I noticed the screen had changed, and there was a message in Japanese. Since I can't read the language, all I understood was the letter "B" and the number "10". Jump to GameFAQS, "Oh, hold Select and press B 10 times in the main screen, okay"...

Holy shit 50 hidden bonus levels?!  :o

I beat Brawl Brothers and Final Fight 2 today. Both are SNES beat 'em ups, and I beat both of them on Easy. But they were also first-time completions. (And probably last-time for Brawl Brothers, which is just kind of a so-so Final Fight wannabe anyway.)


Title: Re: Last game you beat (including Famicom)
Post by: Nightstar699 on October 06, 2014, 03:38:51 AM
Both good picks, Jackson, but I gotta say, I disagree with your assessment of Brawl Brothers, love the entire Rushing Beat series. Oddly enough, the original one (Rival Turf) is my favorite, and that's also the one which plays the closest to Final Fight. Rushing Beat Ran (Brawl Brothers) has more than enough unique traits to set it apart from FF, the dashing attacks, being able to hit/grab opponents while they're down, the Ikari mode, the way the levels are set up, etc.

But Final Fight 2, that's my favorite of the trilogy! I'd recommend going back and clearing it on a higher difficulty, which character did you use?

I just beat Big Nose Freaks Out (NES) for the first time. It's a pretty decent ripoff of Sonic the Hedgehog.

@ nightstar

The gameplay was ok in Brawl Brothers, but the game just felt like a pretty generic 16-bit beat 'em up. The art is pretty average and the characters are pretty bland. I'd wondered if there was some relationship between Brawl Brothers and Rival Turf, and yeah Rival Turf is even more of a poor man's Final Fight.

As for my playthroughs of BB and FF2, I bounced around the characters a bit. But I generally prefer the heavyweight brawlers in these games, so I played with a lot of the big judo guy in BB and Haggar in FF2. See, I even bother to remember the name of Mike Haggar... Capcom made him interesting, at least to me.

Ninja Crusaders on Famicom, 2 Players.
Spent like 2+ hours on the last stage... Decent game but I hate 1-hit kills and the fact that whenever one player lost all lives, when the other died then they couldn't come back on the same screen again but had to start the level from the start.

I didn't like that this game like Wagyan Land and Kamen no Ninja Hanamaru, it had minigames instead of boss fights.. memory, janken and some number game. Mostly random when I won or lost these. Other than that, a decent enough game, enjoyable.

I had a good day today. I beat Double Dragon (NES) for only the second time in my life. Machine-Gun Willie is usually such a pain in the ass for me, but I got him on my first try. And, like the first time I beat Double Dragon, I easily defeated Jimmy Lee with a full life bar on my next life.

I also broke out the Duck Tales (NES) for the first time in over a year and got the special $10,000,000 ending.

In between, I celebrated my pickup of a nice CIB Streets of Rage 2 (Genesis) from my local game store by playing all the way through on "Easy." It sure is... I beat it on one credit.

I decided to get a bunch of NES stuff recently, mainly games which weren't on Famicom (like Kick Master and Low G Man) and I've been dying to play JTS again so I just figured ehhh might as well get that one too, though since I've fallen back in love with it I do plan to get a CIB copy of RAF World!

That being said I actually like the sprite in JTS better just because he has a little more color to 'im.

Edit: Speaking of which, I've also been obsessed with Street Fighter 2010 lately. Just like Silius, I couldn't beat this one as a child but have been clearing it quite convincing lately... haven't managed to no-death it yet though.

I completed RC Pro-Am II (NES) a couple of days ago. It's only my second time beating it, and I actually finished tied for 1st in overall points this time. (I finished behind a computer the first time I completed it.)

As for Duck Tales, I think it's a great game. It is a little on the short side, as are dozens of other polished platformers on the system. And I wish the last stage hadn't just been a replay of Transylvania with all the goodies removed. But aside from that, the game is a gem.

I played it on the second difficulty (I forget what they're called), because the first is a complete joke. (A few weeks ago, I watched my partner beat it on the lowest setting in half-an-hour on the first try despite fumbling with the controls for the first 10 minutes.) There was a decent increase in challenge, but I did still beat it on my first try.

Beat Radia Senki: Reimeihen on Famicom again a few days ago, I really love the pacing in that game. Also just completed Hanjuku Eiyuu (Famicom) again. I struggled a little in the 2nd scenario as an opponent's kingdom grew too big and kept pelting me with troops, though I managed to hold the front with two shoguns and sneakily flank them with my hero. Things started to ease up as I conquered their main castle, and I won the scenario pretty effortlessly thereafter. Scenario 3 gave me some trouble as well, but it was nothing near as much as in scenario 2. Still an excellent game!

I think I only beat the first scenario in that game. Gotta get back to it sometime.

I beat Zelda II, NES version. I thought the Grand Palace would be really hard, but it was actually a breeze! Then I came up to Thunderbird without the Thunder spell... So I backtracked and came back. I beat both bosses without dying! Then I played through hero-mode and beat all 6 palaces without a game over. I think I mastered this game.
Great, it's time to take on the Japanese version, it's harder.

RoboCop (NES)

It's a childhood favorite I've had completely conquered, if not completely memorized for nearly 20 years now. I've been playing this quite a bit over the last few days, because I picked up a stack of copies for cheap at my local game store. It's a good repro donor cart, and I'm testing them before shipping them off for trade credit on some repro work.

I may need to re-watch the movie soon...

I just completed all 32 (+7 on the second lap) mountains in Ice Climber on Famicom. Used 4 continues after Game Over. My goal was sub 5 and I almost made it in 3, died just at the end of mountain 30 due to a mistake.

Had a hard time with the game as a kid but I've always somehow liked it though. When you've learned the controls properly it gets really addictive.

Beat Little Nemo: The Dream Master.

I think the difficulty of this game is a bit too high for what it is - I feel like it should be closer to the Kid Dracula/Kirby's Adventure level. But I really enjoyed it, I used to play the game in rental stores a lot when I was a kid. I think back then I couldn't even clear the first stage.

The final stage was super stressful but I found the final boss to be pretty easy.

I hated Little Nemo. I thought I was going to like it but I didn't When out of a 'suit' you're completely fucked as all you can do is freeze enemies (in your way, so you're blocked from progressing lest you take damage!) and in a suit it's not a picnic either. And last but not least, respawning enemies~

Kid Dracula/Kirby's Adventure level.

Wat. Kid Dracula is way, way harder than Kirby's Adventure... and Little Nemo, for that matter. Nemo becomes quite easy when you replay it, once you learn when and where to swap suits.

And last but not least, respawning enemies~

The enemies have to respawn, otherwise you'd get into situations where you'd have no way to acquire a particular suit, and would therefore be literally unable to progress.

Maybe I'm not just remembering the more difficult bits, but I sat down and cruised through Kid Dracula in an afternoon. I found the limitations that Nemo put on you to be more difficult - like not always being able to attack enemies and having to memorize a certain sequence of suit swaps.

I am talking about the Famicom Kid Dracula, by the way. I haven't ever played the one for Game Boy.

Arkista's Ring, one of those odd little obscure games released by American Sammy. My childhood buddy down the street owned this game and I'd borrow it from him a lot. I stumbled across a copy over the weekend and snapped it up - it's fun and well designed, but eventually wears out its welcome. It has a brief 32 or so stages, but you have to complete four full loops of them (with stronger, faster enemies each time) to "really" beat the game.

I wouldn't recommend this. By the middle of the second loop, you've almost certainly found all of the game's items, meaning the rest is just endurance and managing your one-time use items. For all that you just get a black screen with "Thanks for helping me rescue Arkista's Ring," and a frozen shot of your final stats and items. Better just to complete one loop and call it there.

One of the stranger rare items in the game is the "Wealth Ring," which increases your score by 100 points with each step. Since points have no use in the game - you don't get extra lives or anything and they don't even reset at game over - it's more curiosity than anything else. You may notice I have more than 2 million points there at the end. Good lord.

Got my FDS working again and finished off Section Z.  It's easier on the FDS because of the save files.  The last boss took me a while to beat because my health was so low.  Yay for respawning enemies that drop health containers!

Always meant to finish Section Z on my NES. One of these days.

Lately I've been hitting the Genesis collection which I've neglected for a long time. I'm working through the Sonic games - recently beat 1 and 2, although I had beaten 2 before in the past. Did not collect the Chaos Emeralds in either. I've never made it all the way through Sonic 3 & Knuckles so I'm pretty excited for that.

Also beat Ranger X (one of the best on the system) and Alisia Dragoon (eventually used a stage select cheat since the game is so stingy with continues).

I had 1/2 of a heart left when I beat the final boss. Pretty intense!

Now go play Zoda's Revenge, it's just as fun. The jumping physics are different (you can change direction in midair), which got me killed a few times at the beginning, and there's no "delay" while you change direction or start moving, so it overall feels a bit faster and more action-packed.

Totally right about it being a summer game. The second one opens with snow and ice, so maybe it's good for next season. ;)

I think CVIII's endings only vary by character. The branching paths basically determine difficulty and which characters you encounter. For example, the clock tower stage is fully optional, but is the only way to meet Grant. IIRC the lower path to the castle results in stages that are far more difficult...although the end of the game is ass-beatingly hard any way you swing it.

Sypha is generally the best choice for ease of play, especially in the U.S. version.

Absolutely optional. And Zycrow is correct that the lower route (the one you have to take if you want Alucard) leads to much, much harder stages. Especially that falling block level... hardest stage in the game, I'd say.

Biohazard Battle for the Genesis. If anyone is into shooters and hasn't tried out this game, do it!

This was a milestone for me, incidentally. I've loved STGs for a long, long time, but I'm rarely able to actually see one to the end.

So this year I decided I'd break that trend - I chose this game first since it has a gentle difficulty curve and incredible presentation. I watched playthroughs for some of the areas that were giving me trouble and used the stage select to practice them.

I played on normal difficulty with the default number of lives (3); I reached the final boss on one credit, but didn't defeat it; I used almost all of the rest of my credits on the final stage and eventually beat it with a couple to spare.

Now that I've had so much practice on the final stage, I think I could probably 1CC the game. Perhaps later. ;)

Me too. Never was a big rpg fan back then. And when game converters stopped working with certain jap/usa games it became to risky to buy from importers. Its a really good game though i wish it was more linear later on. Took me 20 hours and only got stuck a few times in the last quarter.

Phantasy Star, playing the SMS original on my Genesis Everdrive.

Good RPG for the era, although the game feels like it runs out of steam toward the end. After a certain point there are no more new enemy types, and the characters don't really gain much strength, so it feels a bit tedious to continue.

But I toughed it out and the final battle and ending were worthwhile.

My one tip for hard mode (assuming by which you mean the second loop?) is to learn the Fishman spawns well in the first section of stage 4, that's the hardest part of loop 2. Stages 5 and 6 are identical to normal. (I believe)

I almost beat the 2nd loop once, but I deleted my file by putting All Night Nippon on my FDSStick without going into CMD to change game slots (I was even at the final level with Dracula).

Do the third, fourth, and so-on loops add any more enemies?

Beat Dracula X with Maria - last level was just too much with Richter so I switched to Maria and beat it first time round, then Dracula first time round as well.  He seemed too easy, especially the 2nd form.

Like Nightstar, I loved the Shaft resurrection boss fights, but it took me a fair few goes to beat them.

Currently trying to get through 5' now and find the other girls, then unlock all the other Technics and whatever else.  Heck of a game!

Think then I'll play through Dracula XX on SNES, I still have to beat Castlevania IV and Castlevania 3, but have a few passwords near the end for those.

After that I'd like to try beating Akumajou Drcaula X68000 and also Symphony of the Night, which I never got into.  Saving Dracula 2 for last, I have an improvement hack of it.

Don't forget Vampire Killer/Bloodlines. It's also a heck of a game! I was surprised how fun it was when I played it at first, considering I hadn't heard a lot about it. That shows that the Castlevania series isn't just about nostalgia, but a series of very well made games.

I know some of you guys can beat this game in like 15 minutes, but this is only the second time I've ever beaten it (once on NES, once on FDS).

Keep at it, mate! Eventually you'll be able to no-death with best ending as I've done... though admittedly it isn't a consistent run, Dracula XX can get brutal. But god I love it... probably my favorite 16-bit CV, or at least tied with Bloodlines.

First time beating it, but it was on super-wimpy mode. ("Normal" difficulty, with my energy and lives cranked all the way up.) I knocked out the final boss with less than a square of health left on my last life. The game has great style, but seems a little thin on substance.

Edit: I beat Super Mari: Fighting of the Malilugi last night (AKA Chip n Dale), naturally they were too lazy to change anything aside from a few sprites ::)

I decided to play Hoshi no Kirby on the Game Boy last night and I forgot just how short it was. I cleared the game on only two lives (I died during my first battle with Dedede).

I'll probably try and tackle extra mode tonight.

Finally got around to beating most of the NES Megaman games, I'd only beaten the second one until the last month or so and I felt like I should really play the others. Still haven't beaten the first one though, I feel like I'd probably have to cheese it with the pause trick :upsetroll:

In general, I feel like I've got a lot of games to catch up on :o

Vice: Project Doom. Through phone emulator, abusing savestates and even slow motion. Quite honestly, I'm not good at games. Haha.

Right now, playing through Totally Rad, but not really enjoying it. It seems to collect what I dislike about later Megaman games, and lacks what I like about earlier ones.

I found the game to be a lot more playable if you only transform when absolutely necessary.  Not sure if that misses the point, but that's how I managed to get through it.

Is there a transformation? I think I've been playing it wrong. It keeps referencing magic, but the only "magic" I can figure out, is every time I try to shoot upward (up + B), my dude does a dance, loses magic points and gains hp.

As for Bucky O'Hare, it was a favorite of mine as a child (I should feel guilty about that as an avid Stan Sakai fan, since Bucky O-Hare's commercial failure is often cited as the main obstacle in Sakai getting his own animated series). But, I love the series, and loved the toys and cartoon as a kid. It's on my list of games to play through as an adult.

If you press Start it'll bring up a menu to choose which magic you want to use.  Use Up+B to use it.

Oh, yeah. That changes things somewhat.

Most of the magic powers are fairly redundant though. The transformations look cool, but there's like half a dozen screen wipes.

That said, the dialog is making up for the lackluster gameplay.

Yes, the show was unheard of in my hometown sadly :(

It's a new year for the Beat Every NES Game challenge thread over at Nintendo Age.

Yesterday, I knocked out Yo! Noid and Captain America and the Avengers for the thread. (Second-time completions on both titles.) I'd been practicing Noid for a couple of days (read: playing until I exhausted my continues... damn that game is frustrating). But I actually 1CCed it yesterday, which was pretty surprising and impressive. I didn't improve too much on Cap'n, though. It took me about 6 hours of off-and-on playing to knock out Red Skull and see the ending there. That game really drags on with the repetitive stages, especially with all of the backtracking every time Cap or Hawkeye gets defeated and captured.

Beat RBI Baseball 2 & 3 (NES) for the first time today. I'd been playing RBI 2 for the last few days, and once I finished it I just picked up 3 and powered through it as well. I think 3 may even be the same game with updated rosters and slightly improved computer AI. Still, it was kind of nice to finally finish a couple of games I'd rented as a kid.

I had a couple of first-time NES completions today, as well as beating Pac-Mania for the second time. I played through King's Quest V last-night-into-this-morning. I've not played the original PC version, but I can see why this is considered a butchered port. Then I played through Challenge of the Dragon this evening. It's a typically sloppy Color Dreams beat 'em up, with the horribly slippery physics. Not too difficult, though, especially with the continues.

Hammerin Harry for the super famicom was a lot of fun. Beat the final boss on the 2nd try didn't even realize he was the final boss. couldn't grab a pic at the end screen cause it cut out to fast but I got this pic because I didn't know if it was the end or not. I'd like to state that the reason I didn't know it was the final boss is because I don't watch videos of play it throughs or emulate roms (I don't own a computer I use all the internet I need from my iPhone) I'll watch maybe a minute or two of the gameplay and that's enough for me to decide if I wanna buy it or not. I'm the kind of guy that's still likes to be surprised by games I don't know about and don't wanna spoil it for myself.

Aero Fighters (SNES)

I was at a friend's last night, and he'd just picked up a copy of Aero Fighters. I got the chance to beat it three times on Easy, and I watched two other guys beat it with the American pilots so I got to see all four endings.

It's a fun game, but a little short and light on difficulty. (We got halfway through it on Normal difficulty despite having never played the game before. We turned it down to Easy to see the endings after that.)

I can really recommend Strikers 1945 if you are into Shoot Em Ups from Psikyo. Although I believe it was not released on the SNES/SFC it is in my opinion their absolutely best game that was released by Psikyo. Most of them plays fairly similar though, but Strikers 1945 stands out in my opinion due to it's historical impact (it became very very popular in the arcades in Japan during it's release) and the AI, controls, variety and plot is simply the best Psikyo ever put out. I like Sonic Wings/Aero Fighters though, it's one of those games that are often overseen by many other more known shooters.

What do you think about Battle Outrun? It was not released here in Japan but it is compatible with the Everdrive so I had the chance of playing it. Really like it although it is much harder than Chase H.Q. I like the way that you can customize your car with ugrades although the enemies are a bit...dull.

I beat Time Diver: Eon Man (NES) a couple of nights ago.

I was at a gaming party with a guy I'd just traded some repros to, including that Time Diver cart. He popped it in and asked if I wanted to show how it was done. I'd never really played past the third stage before, but I just powered all the way through with a couple of small hiccups. It's not everyday that I beat a game for the first time with an audience.

It's a really solid, if not thoroughly polished, title. Expectations should never be sky-high for an unpublished prototype, but it was easily more fun than at least the bottom third of the official NES library.

I haven't had too much free time to game lately, but within the past 2 weeks I finished Gimmick! at home, and then Mother 3 on the GBA SP. I have a pretty short attention span to finish games, but I racked up ~33 hours to finish this one, and felt like I couldn't get enough of the story and absurb NPC interaction(s). My only complaint was not owning the SP headphone adapter, and the fact that my SP battery seems to be close to death.

At one point in Chapter 5, I happened to defeat a rarely occurring enemy, gaining so much XP that my party earned 3-4 levels with all 4 allies, and mere minutes later my handheld soft reset before I could save.  :'(

Ninja Gaiden 2 Dark Sword of Chaos aka 忍者龍剣伝2暗黒の邪神剣

Easier than the first game. I much appreciate three things:

Being able to climb on walls
When you die you start with less magic, not none
When you die at the final bosses you only have to redo one stage instead of three(!)

I disliked two things:

The windy and icy stages (they were annoying)
The sword going through a lot of enemies and items(feels like it happens more in 2 than 1/3)

Now I've beaten the Ninja Gaiden trilogy  ;D (on Famicom)

You beat III before II? Anyway, welcome to the club! Now all's that's left is Ninja Gaiden Shadow, which was really a Shadow of the Ninja game, so I'm going to play that first.

Oh yeah! I just completed Mega Man Battle Network 4. It wasn't a very impressive title, in my opinion. :diskkun:

I beat them in this order: 3 - 1 - 2. Also Battle Network 4? I'm playing through that series too and am at 4 currently, which is my least favorite. Too many competitions and little real storyline in that one.

Ninja Gaiden 2 Dark Sword of Chaos aka 忍者龍剣伝2暗黒の邪神剣

Easier than the first game. I much appreciate three things:

Being able to climb on walls
When you die you start with less magic, not none
When you die at the final bosses you only have to redo one stage instead of three(!)

I disliked two things:

The windy and icy stages (they were annoying)
The sword going through a lot of enemies and items(feels like it happens more in 2 than 1/3)

Now I've beaten the Ninja Gaiden trilogy  ;D (on Famicom)


Huh, as someone who speedruns the whole Ninja Gaiden trilogy, I find your experience interesting. General consensus among runners is that NG2 is the hardest one of the trilogy, and I must agree. The diminished hitbox on Ryu's sword (trust me, it wasn't your imagination) leads to a ton of tricky slashes, it demands perfect mastery of all your special weapons (not just Spin Slash like NG1), and of course those stage hazards. In fact it took me a much longer time to learn 2 than 1 or 3, just since I was so intimidated by its difficulty.

However, it has literally zero randomness, as opposed to the first game. So there's that.

Ironically a lot of Ninja Gaiden runners love the ice level because the sliding physics mean you can slash while standing, without slowing down. I personally kinda hate 5-2.

I hadn't beaten this one in almost 20 years. I played it all the way to the Joker pretty easily a couple of weeks ago, but just couldn't take him down in over an hour of trying. I picked it up today and wound up punching him out on about my seventh or eighth try.

StarTropics 2 zoda's revenge. Great game really liked it. I thought it was better then the 1st except for zodas death scene and the ending.
Just completed this one myself. I was expecting another island-hopping game, like the first one. Then I realized why ZODA's REVENGE is in big titles, while StarTropics II is barely noticeable.

I liked playing through these; they are obscure gems (and nice spiritual successors to the Zelda games on the NES). But I felt the second one was a little too easy. Something about the second one's ending left much to be desired as well. :-\

Final Fantasy (NES)

I hadn't played through this in probably 15 years. It's still a magical game, even if it has a lousy magic system ironically. My party consisted of two Fighter/Knights and two Red Mage/Wizards, because I need armor and swords to deal with this game.


Title: Re: Last game you beat (including Famicom)
Post by: P on December 29, 2016, 09:53:17 AM
Yeah since intelligence doesn't do anything, the only advantages the white and black mages has over the red one is their larger spell pool and larger number of spell charges. Mages (including red) also start out with the best saving throw, but they also have the lowest growth in saving throw.

I usually play with one white mage as a dedicated healer and the rest are fighter, monk and thief (I don't like to have more than one character per class). The game is hardest in the beginning, because the monk takes some time to shine and the thief is very weak until he becomes ninja.

I beat Robocco Wars (Famicom) for the first time last night. That's a fun game that starts pretty easy and stays more or less that way until a couple of the later bosses. I don't know if I could ever beat that final boss with less than a maxed-out health bar, so I suppose it will be one of those that has to be 1CCed for me.

Warming up for Breath of Wild.
Zelda 1 (FDS version) - Both quests, all Heart Containers, secrets and zero Game Overs.
It's the first time I cleared it with no Game Overs even on the first quest. :) It's much easier than it used to be.

Next I'm going to complete Zelda 2 (FDS version) with no Game Overs. It counts saves instead of Game Overs though, so I'm counting them manually. I'm not going to try beating it without saving, that's just unpractical.

Last game I beat was Breath of the Wild. My favorite Zelda game since the original two! Now I'm just waiting for my Disk System to get here to finally play the original Zelda. (I've played Zelda on NES to death, but never on my baby Famicom)

But yeah if you love the original Zelda, and have a Wii U or Switch, do yourself a favor and buy Breath of the Wild! It feels like they forgot about all the other games and made a modern sequel to the original title.

Zelda 2 (FDS version) - All secrets and no Game Overs.
This is by far the shortest Zelda game. Puzzles are quite easy but battles are a bit harder than in Zelda 1. I beat it in about 3 or 4 sessions (but I saved more often so the save count was about 6).

Last game I beat was Breath of the Wild. My favorite Zelda game since the original two! Now I'm just waiting for my Disk System to get here to finally play the original Zelda. (I've played Zelda on NES to death, but never on my baby Famicom)

But yeah if you love the original Zelda, and have a Wii U or Switch, do yourself a favor and buy Breath of the Wild! It feels like they forgot about all the other games and made a modern sequel to the original title.
I really recommend the disk system version, the English translation has lots of mistakes and weird changes (the ones that are not changed have good translations though) not mentioning the Pols Voices, and the Japanese cart version doesn't have the FDS sound channel feature, so the FDS version is the definitive version of this game.

For Zelda 2 however, I can't say that the FDS is the definitive version though. The changes in the NES version are mostly improvements (except they removed Roto's grave! Noo!) including a better battle theme, a more useful fire spell, easier to keep your experience levels and the translation is quite good too. Although I'm no fan of NOA's anti-religion censorship (they are obviously temples not palaces, and the guardians are of divine nature created by the king).
The manual also has a bunch of strange changes that only made translating future Zelda games more complex: Stalfon became downgraded to Stalfos, Iron-nakk became Iron Knuckles (better than the Tart-nakk -> Darknut translation though) and Gerudo-orm became Geldarm (this one is mostly a matter of romanization though, but Nintendo probably meant アーム to be orm in this case (changed to worm in some later games), and Gerudo is the standard romanization for Geld since Ocarina).
I really recommend to play both versions though, they have interesting changes, and the FDS sound channel is always nice.

Oh yes I'm picking up a Switch and Zelda BOW when I have the chance. But for now I'll continue my warm up with Zelda no Densetsu Kamigami no Triforce. Haven't played it in years.

Post by: mammal93 on March 29, 2017, 03:48:41 PM
Yeah I actually now have Zelda No Densetsu, but my Disk System is still in transit to me!

I did not realize there where any big differences in Zelda 2 in the US. Good thing I still have all my American console and games. I do want the Disk one for my collection, but I'm happy to know to just play the one I've had since I was a child.

BOTW is beyond amazing! I played it on Wii U, and the load times where bad, but it was worth it. I can't wait to get a switch and play through it again. It captures the open world and exploration of Zelda 1, and perfects the combt and everything of the 3D Zeldas. It's story is really good too. Not overly complicated, but a Breath of fresh air.  :-[


Title: Re: Last game you beat (including Famicom)
Post by: P on March 29, 2017, 08:51:12 PM
Oh if you haven't played Zelda 2 FDS version before, I really recommend to do it (well after you finished FDS Zelda 1). It's not really worse than the NES version, just different (some things are worse some are better). I think the FDS version is maybe a bit more challenging because you take more damage from enemies (unless I'm remembering the NES version poorly), but on the other hand there are no enemies that drains your experience points, and tektites and zoras are easier because they don't require the fire spell (which makes that spell less useful).
Also if you can read Japanese there are some interesting differences. There are also less NPC variety (no kids or fat ladies).

Yeah BOTW looks a lot Zelda 1:ish. That's actually what inspired me to play that game again to begin with. I think lately modern games have become maybe a bit too linear, I enjoy earlier RPGs where the story is driven forward without too much hand-holding and linearity.
Darn I really need a Switch now!

Post by: mammal93 on March 30, 2017, 04:03:53 PM
Yeah I'm just getting my first FDS so I have't played anything yet, but Zelda will be my first. I do plan on eventually buying Zelda 2, but I spent a lot getting games and the hardware so I'm waiting for it right now. It'll be interesting to see the differences. I played Zelda 2 more as a kid than Zelda 1 so I know it like the back of my hand.

Yeah I can dig a linear story based experience, but having a fully open Zelda made me realize I was really missing that in my life. Now I just need a new Ultima  ;D

Nice, that one is supposedly quite hard to 1CC due to the Boobeam Trap boss. I think I always waste a continue to beat it because I run out of Crash ammo.

I played Zelda 2 more as a kid than Zelda 1 so I know it like the back of my hand.
Me too, which is why I'm much better at Zelda 2 than Zelda 1. I never understood why it's one of the most disliked Zelda games. It was mostly considered the best game there was when it came out. Sure it's very different from other Zelda games in behind sight, but when it came out there was only one other game to compare with.



Last game I beat:
Zelda no Densetsu: Kamigami no Triforce - 100% complete, all secrets and no Game Overs.
While it was far from the first time I beat this game with one life, it was the first time in several years. I'm glad to see that it hasn't aged at all, it's truly still the best game in the Zelda series (closely followed by Ocarina) IMO.

I'm still in a Zelda mood though so I'm going to continue this little marathon with Zelda: Yume wo Miru Shima. That is one of the Zelda games I played the least. I only beat it once and that was with tons of Game Overs so I didn't see the good ending. Also it was the DX version I beat as I didn't buy the monochrome game when it came out for some reason (I have it now though).

Title: Re: Last game you beat (including Famicom)
Post by: P on April 27, 2017, 01:07:04 PM
Oh so you got a Switch? Nice!

Zelda no Densetsu: Yume wo Miru Shima (monochrome Japanese 1.0 version) - 100% complete, all secrets and no Game Overs.
Maybe the Zelda game with the most frustrating dungeons and hardest to find secrets so far (second quest of Zelda 1 might be worse though). I remember I got stuck several times as a kid in the dungeons. Bombable walls without cracks and a few puzzles that requires thinking differently from the standard formula. The DX version is a bit easier with the added owl statues in dungeons replacing the stone tablets and giving away more hints. Though being easier, I'd say the DX version is the better version because of the added photograph quest, the new dungeon and other smaller additions.

OK coming up next: Toki no Okarina!

I took it to my local used game store, and when the guy couldn't figure it out, we used their copy of the game to create a disc 2 save.

Other than disc swapping, I've had no problems playing my copy. What's also weird is that disc swapping to play a new game on disc 1 also doesn't work. ???

I'll take it in again on Saturday to see if they're tech expert can figure out what's wrong. So far it's been tried on two different Playstations with two different memory cards.

I was told that my discs looked like they were kept in very good condition (perhaps even better than their copy). So I really don't get this.

Edit: Apparently "disc swap" means something else. Every time I try to find help online, I get this crap: http://www.wikihow.com/Disk-Swap-on-a-PlayStation

Edit: The SLUS numbers on the discs match the case. Did Metal Gear Solid get any version updates? And if so, would the SLUS # be different?


Title: Re: Last game you beat (including Famicom)
Post by: P on May 12, 2017, 07:29:00 PM
I see, that's kind of wierd. Maybe some scratches or bad laser or something gets in the way for the disc swapping. I don't know much about optical discs though.
I wonder, what happens when you try to disc swap? Does it just freeze, or doesn't it recognize the other disc or something?

I've no idea about versions of the game. I played a PAL version back in the day.

By the way, how many different endings are there?
I'm pretty sure there was just two endings in MGS. Bad ending and good ending. The good ending is canon.
You get the bad ending by (spoiler): Giving up in the torture scene (press SELECT). The good ending is gotten by surviving the torture scene without giving up until you are able to escape.

Edit: Apparently "disc swap" means something else. Every time I try to find help online, I get this crap: http://www.wikihow.com/Disk-Swap-on-a-PlayStation
Yeah the Playstation's piracy protection is kind of weak. And that method would probably not work with Metal Gear Solid because that game requires hot swapping the disc half through the game. You can't save, turn off and boot from the second disc (like in for example the Final Fantasy games).

I just got done beating the Mission mode of Puyo Puyo (Famicom). Some of those puzzles were pretty tricky! (Yes, I needed walkthrough help on about a quarter of them...)

I also beat Kamen no Ninja: Hanamaru (Famicom) for the first time today. That one has an asterisk next to it, since I have beaten Yo! Noid once or twice before and it's basically the same game. It certainly makes more sense in a anime world with ninjas vs. starring the annoying mascot of a corporate pizza chain.

I decided to buy a set of loose discs (from the Essential Collection apparently) so I can beat Metal Gear Solid again. Turns out that the first disc was the one having problems: I could load the first Essential disc and swap in the second original disc but not the first original disc and swap in the second Essential disc. Both Essential discs swap fine.

I'm not sure if it really qualifies as [beating/i] a game but I finished Otogirisou, a visual novel-type game for Super Famicom (although Chunsoft themselves call it a Sound Novel, because you're supposed to read the text aloud)
It was about a couple driving around and crashing near an abandoned mansion(I love mansions) and explore it finding that a family used to live here but now only one remain, and the girlfriend might just be a long-lost member...

Then I found out that a japanese horror movie was based on the game as well so I've ordered it from ebay!

Great! Is expert when rations are limited/non-existant? I remember playing the hardest difficulty and running out of ration after the fight with Psycho Mantis and got stuck at Sniper Wolf due to having too little life. She always killed me before I could even aim at her!

a visual novel-type game ... (although Chunsoft themselves call it a Sound Novel, because you're supposed to read the text aloud)
From what I can remember the term Sound Novel was patented or something so companies started to use other terms like visual novel. Chunsoft games and the Sound Novel Tsukuuru games seems to use this term though.


Title: Re: Last game you beat (including Famicom)
Post by: Jedi QuestMaster on June 09, 2017, 03:21:53 AM
Oh, sorry. It's called 'Extreme.'

Let's see:

-you only get one ration (at a time)
 -there are no ration pick ups; rations can only be acquired from soldiers, who also drop famas and socom ammo (so you can still farm ;D)
-items do not respawn (except for the C4 and PSG1 ammo outside the frozen Tower A door
-after each boss fight, though your health bar increases, you do not regain health
-the lasers in the airlock move faster (which made it easier for me for some reason)
-Sniper Wolf is faster (as you've noticed)
-you must survive each torture session 6 times (which I miraculously got by on the first try both times!)
-the mine detector doesn't do squat (because there's no radar), but the IR goggles are just fine (except for locating the PAL key)
-your health replenishes for the rappel portion (thank God!)
-falling off the Metal Gear during the Liquid fight is instant death

Things I've found out:

-on the tank battle, the grenade must land precisely on the gunner to have effect (which really frustrated me!), on Normal, I believe you can finish this fight with two direct hits, whereas on Extreme you need four direct hits to do anything

-the Cyborg Ninja fight (the only other boss fight I needed to see a video walkthrough for), was the toughest fight by far due to all the phases and how quick he moves, and also his one-hit-kill attacks

-Psycho Mantis wasn't as tough as I expected, but this was the longest and most tedious fight

-the stair climb (the non-boss portion I needed a walkthrough for!) is easier if you're maxed out on stun grenades: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bZc8jdbEStY

...but my method involved dropping a grenade at the entrance hatch, while laying down claymore mines at the corners while going up (because you can always get more!) and gunning down anyone in front of me

-apparently the Hind D missile strike at the end is an instant kill, but I never get hit by these, because I always happened to be standing in my hiding spot between the door and that generator-looking thing

-the second Sniper Wolf fight is pretty much broken if you have a bunch of Nikita and stinger missiles (they both work!)

-Vulcan Raven (the other boss fight I needed a guide for!) is always shooting now and running from the beginning. It's also tough without the radar! But he moves in a static pattern: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ty-1KBmkZ6s

-Metal Gear REX isn't hard, as long as you're always running circles around it clockwise while shooting the radome, but on the second phase, stun grenades work now (which makes sense; didn't know why I didn't think of it)

-with precise timing, you can punch Liquid in one combo: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h-0G4TVJeik

Honestly, I wouldn't really say it's worth playing on Extreme unless you're seeking a challenge without reward. I just wanted to see how it's like without a radar (which is really worth trying out) and I decided screw Hard, let's see how Extreme is like, and it does get easier once your health bar increases enough.

And once you equip the PSG, the sneaking parts are practically nonexistent.

Now trying to get a Big Boss ranking, that's a different story.[/walloftext]

TLDR:

-Extreme is hard as shit that's been dried in the Sahara
-you can sort of 'cheat' in this game
-try 'Hard' if you wanna play without the radar, but just know, Extreme gets easy once you find the PSG
-screw Big Boss

I think I beat the game on hard but not on extreme (I fed up when I got stuck at Sniper Wolf). The game really isn't made to be played without radar. It requires prior knowledge of the level layout and enemy patterns. Yet all the games features a no radar mode for people that want more challenge.

Later games in the series allows you to shoot from first person view mode which is kind of like using the PSG-1 but with any weapon (and can be done from a standing position). But since the enemy's strategy is much more complex (for example they send out a dangerous search team if they notice they lost a man) it's not something that eliminates the sneaking parts, and in Solid 3 (my favourite) it is absolutely required as it takes place before the more modern radar was invented.

-there are no ration pick ups; rations can only be acquired from soldiers, who also drop famas and socom ammo (so you can still farm ;D)
Hmm why didn't I just farm for rations. I remember I was running around the whole base trying to look for scrap rations to no avail. It was a long time ago though so might not remember.

Quote
-the Cyborg Ninja fight (the only other boss fight I needed to see a video walkthrough for), was the toughest fight by far due to all the phases and how quick he moves, and also his one-hit-kill attacks
It's my favourite boss! I always loved that you have to fight him unarmed.

Quote
-Psycho Mantis wasn't as tough as I expected, but this was the longest and most tedious fight
Just wait until you fight The End in Solid 3...

Quote
-the stair climb (the non-boss portion I needed a walkthrough for!) is easier if you're maxed out on stun grenades: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bZc8jdbEStY

...but my method involved dropping a grenade at the entrance hatch, while laying down claymore mines at the corners while going up (because you can always get more!) and gunning down anyone in front of me
Yeah there are so many ways you can get through every situation. I really like the diversity of weapons. Stun grenades can be very effective for diversion attacks in any Metal Gear, unless you are sneaking. And mines are always fun, as long as you remember where you laid them...

Quote
-the second Sniper Wolf fight is pretty much broken if you have a bunch of Nikita and stinger missiles (they both work!)
Yeah I remember that. It was quite disappointing to discover that so I just refused to use anything but a sniper rifle on her. In later games, sniper battles may require you to not only use the sniper if you want to get certain extra items, or not drag the battle out forever.

Quote
-with precise timing, you can punch Liquid in one combo: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h-0G4TVJeik
Ah yes this is a very important technique in all 3D main series games. As soon as you kick, the enemy will fall and will be invincible for a short while. But if you continue punching he will be unable to doge and you can drain all his life or stamina quite quickly. Doing this on guards can knock them out relatively fast. Faster than doing the punch-punch-kick combo twice anyway, and with less danger of him calling support or attacking you.



BTW did you play the game with a dualshock controller? First time I played it I only had a normal controller, but second time I had the dualshock and was in for a surprise. Also having other Konami games on the memory card will be commented on at a certain time in the game. Gotta love their humour!

I bought a dual shock just for this game. The only other Playstation games I have are coincidentally Castlevania: Symphony of the Night and Suikoden. :P Suikoden is missing the first disc though. :( Yeah, I need more Playstation!

The directors cut has the arrange mode which switches stuff around. It also has a beginner mode that gets you more ammo and stuff, but nothing in either mode really beats the original in any significant way.

Plus directors cut absolutely butchers one song in the game https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0kcF7E69C6Q

After 28 years I finally beat Mike Tyson. Knocked off my number 1 video game bucket list goal. Took me about 2 1/2 hours of practice but I did it. The first time I won it was by decision. I was really disappointed. So when back until I finally got a TKO in the third. I can finally die a happy man. As soon as I learned how to quick dodge I knew it was over for kid dynamite. I’ve watched tons of tutorials on how to beat iron mike but it’s never explained properly. ***To do a successful quick dodge all you do is as soon as you see him flash or wink literally just tap left/right then Immediately hold up and start to throw your punches**** it’s truly not an easy technique to put in words. It’s one of those things that’s self taught after tons of  Trial and error and   Practice. The thing is you don’t ever have to use this technique with the first 13 fighters. Naturally you just hold left/right till little Mac descends back to the middle of the screen then start throwing blows. So throw everything out the window you learned from the 1st 13 fights because it doesn’t matter anymore. you’ve to Completely rework your style of fighting for the dream bout.

Super Mario Odyssey! At least the main part. What a great, wonderfully polished game. This game alone got me hooked on using joy-cons detached from the little shell that comes with the Switch...since, well, you basically have to play that way to easily make use of all of Cappy's moves. Whatever, I'm really good at Mario Kart 8 Deluxe now since I switched controllers.  8) Also, freehand joy-cons are great for motion-controlled shrines in Zelda since you only have to move the right joy-con. Much easier to execute smaller movements in the direction you actually want to go.

Pokonyan Henpokorin Adventure. Probably the easiest game I've ever beaten, although I didn't get a good score at the end.

Beat Super Mario Odyssey at the weekend and had a blast - now on to 100% the game, I reckon I'm 65% though or so, it's bigger than I thought.

No spoilers from me, but in terms of gut feel on the game, it's up there with the best but I don't think it's THE BEST Mario or even the best 3D game.

For me Galaxy 1 is still the best although this comes very close, and I prefer it to Galaxy 2.  It feels like a Galaxy sequel in a lot of ways, more than 64.

I just came to New Donk City!

IMHO Sunshine is the best balanced 3D Mario simply because it seemed more challenging and got you to really use your 3D jumping skills you learned in Mario 64. Galaxy games was made easier on purpose for inexperienced players sake, which made it a bit too easy in general IMHO. Odyssey doesn't feel much harder so far. Mario 64 was cool but it feels like it was (understandably) highly experimental with lots of hardly used moves (like the sweep kick that was removed in later 3D Mario games) and other hardly used things (like throwable boxes without purpose).

Rockman X6

I beat this game for the second time, first time was around a year after it was released, but I beat it with X's Ultimate Armor so
I wanted to do it the old-fashioned way (but with Zero because Zero is awesome).
Very frustrating(the nightmare system sucks, the stage designs are occasionally infuriating, especially the spike overload) but
I still maintain it's a good game overall and the story is decent and the music ranges from decent to fucking awesome.

7/10

Also, I just finished Castlevania III on the second quest with Alucard. I alternated between two playthroughs between Sypha and Alucard on the paths separate from where you pick them up on the first quest... and I couldn't get past the sunken city with Sypha. :( She couldn't freeze the water. :'(

Great, yet frustrating game, and sometimes unforgiving game. :)

Edit: Completed Shantae: Pirate's Curse barely under 2 hours by exploiting a jump trick to skip the final palace (I wasn't going to go through all those again!)

Double Edit: 100%ed Pirate's Curse in 2:47 or something and still unlocked the 100% Speedrun wallpaper. GameFAQs says the time is 2:30 for the 3DS. I guess it's 3 hours? ???

I beat Zelda 2 FDS today!

I grinded myself to 6 lives then set out for the grand palace, lost half those lives on the way, got to the firebird and beat him on my last life with little health left, then died at Dark Link with him having ONE piece of health left(and YES you better believe I did the "crouch and stab" thing) Then as I continued I saw that some of the items like the extra life was gone and I thought I would have to reset to truly try again but as I got to the firebird again he wasn't there, so I got to try Dark Link again with full health and then I could beat it pretty easily(although he does jump on you even in the corner).

Is it harder on the FDS?

I think it's probably about the same, but in the FDS one instead of having a leveling-up tree thing with rising EXP levels, you have to level up all 3 stats evenly or you get set back to the lowest level when you die (if you died with 5-2-3, you get set back to 2-2-2). This is a bit rough, but on the other hand when you reach Lv8 you only need 4000 to get an extra life and not 9000.

I always save all the dolls for the Great Palace (or actually they are temples not palaces) except the one in the Maze Island temple, that one is just too bothersome to go back and get. That way you should have more than enough lives for the last battle without grinding. You will probably get at least one more from experience points on your way to the last boss if you have maxed out all stats.

From my experience I'd say the FDS version is a bit harder than the NES version. Enemies seems to do more damage to you. On the other hand certain enemies can damage your experience points in the NES version, and zoras and tektites can only be defeated using magic (which makes the rather useless Fire spell useful). Shadow Link is nerfed in the NES version. The trick to duck at the left edge does not work in the FDS version, you have to fight him fair and square. Low attacks are still quite effective though, just not fail-safe.

Also see this post (https://www.famicomworld.com/forum/index.php?topic=41.msg175940#msg175940) (and the next few posts), for some more changes.

I finally got around to properly playing and clearing Super Contra (Famicom), I must've had the game for ~five years now. In the end it probably took less than 10 tries to finish the game on a single credit, and I ended up clearing not only the second, but the third loop as well on the same credit. Probably could've done fourth as well, but I had to do something else by that point.

I played Lords of Thunder on Mega CD for the first time yesterday evening - hell of a game!  I got my ass handed to me first play as I had a quick muck about on what I realised was the penultimate level first and didn't finish the level - but after a reset and proper playthrough I was able to beat it basically first time round.  Some of the armours feel pretty OP - while Earth armour felt pretty pointless.  Great game though, thoroughly enjoyed it.  I'll be opting for Super difficulty next time I think!
