Happy birthday, you guys. :slight_smile:

I’ve put a form up to allow you to choose which games you’d like to see me play for my retro streaming Sunday. If you don’t see it listed and it’s pre-1995, write it in and I’ll try to figure out a way to play it provided I have time.

Try contacting the owner of the form if you think this is a mistake.

did i do something wrong?


Bloodborne Release-Day Stream TONIGHT!

Hm. I had it set to only let you complete the form if you were logged in to a Google account to make sure someone doesn’t spam something terrible like Cheetahmen. Let me check it out.


#8

Ok, it should be working now. Sorry about that.


#9

VOTE MEGA MAN 2. Also vote Battletoads & Contra. We need to make this the hardest birthday ever ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Where’s the Ninja Gaiden games? D:


#10

I could play them, but I wanted to limit the list to 50 games. You can write one in but I haven’t played more than half an hour of it. I’ll probably fail miserably.


#11

well, you might fail, and that might seem bad to you. But let me assure you, the viewers will love it!


#12

MegaMan2 was like anger management treatment if I remember correctly, either it cured it or made you insane. Demon Souls seemed immensely fair compared to the Megaman games I remember. So yea, I voted that, Contra and then Shadowgate just because I never got to that one unfortunately.


#13

Yeah, I put Mega Man 2 on there specifically because of its difficulty level. The stages are very difficult and bosses are very easy. Shadowgate is my second favorite NES game, and I’ve gotten to where I can beat it in about 13 minutes. If I don’t get to it then, I’ll have to put a video up of a playthrough.


#14

I’ve also got a Steam key of Super Win the Game and a download of Com Truise - In Decay that I’ll be giving away.


#15

I’ve tried several times to beat mega man 2. I don’t know how people get through the end. Truly respect all people who play it, they need a medal.


#16

My votes went in for you @shane; great games by the way.

I’m saying Actraiser, CV:AoS, Illusion of Gaia, MM2, Soul Blazer, Super Metroid, and Terranigma.

:slight_smile: Have fun. I’ll be around to watch some of them if you chose 'em.

In normal mode, almost the entire game becomes a piece of cake with one of the abilities you get from a specific robot master. In Hard mode, RIP in Pepperonis, because the game is too damn hard. I only beat hard mode once, and that’s because I had to (the GCN collectors edition only has hard mode). I’ve beaten the first three MM games more times than I can count though. I have the first three streamed on my YouTube channel.


#17

Then you also need to add the original Ninja Turtles game.


#18

WAIT. HOLD ON. Did you say the collectors edition only has hard mode? I have the PS2 version of the collector’s edition, I assume it’s the same. That’s not fair. No wonder why I got my butt kicked. Mad, mad respect for you Peter being a big mega man fan. I’m checking out those playthroughs sometime.


#19

Yes sir. The anniversary edition (mistakenly called it collector’s edition) of the Mega Man series has all of the games set to their hardest difficulty, that I know of, so there was no option to pick. Couple that with the GameCube version having reversed A and B button functionality, and you can see why it was such a damn challenge for me lol! But yes, huge, huge Mega Man fan, and anxiously awaiting Mighty No. 9 when that drops.

I’ve got a few more games to give away during my stream. Got a copy of Steamworld Dig, Super Chibi Knight, and Borderlands GOTY. The Borderlands game is compliments of a friend that hosts the Storm Unity podcast and runs a monthly meetup called Arcade Jax.
