Re: The Retro Challenge Thread: A Special Game From Your Mother

Okay guys, let's have a little fun up in here.

Galaga: 68,100 (Wheatley)

So this is currently the high score for Galaga. (I'm picking a reasonably fun game here, thank me later)

I want one of you guys to beat it. Why, you ask? Well one week from today (That's Thursday, June 14th for those keeping track), I'll be giving away the Humble Indie Bundle V (That's Bastion, Amnesia, SuperBrothers, Limbo, and Psychonauts) to whoever manages to set the highest of high scores.

Just to make sure we're all being honest, screenshots are highly encouraged. I trust most of you to not be dicks, but yeah.

Re: The Retro Challenge Thread: A Special Game From Your Mother

Best run so far is 44,590.

BUT I CAN'T GIVE UP.

I know i can do better.

I sometimes do great at the start, but terribly afterwards, and sometimes I do terrible at the start, and great after.

I just have to be great at the start and great afterwards and that highscore will be MINE.

Re: The Retro Challenge Thread: A Special Game From Your Mother

Phalanx. I'm actually looking forward to trying it.

In my day I've probably played every popular game for the SNES and Genesis.

I know all about retro gaming.

Re: The Retro Challenge Thread: A Special Game From Your Mother

Saw this funny thread and decided to join the fun

SNES: 4
Which is Japan Only (3×3 Eyes: Juuma Houkan)

So, I reroll and get

1587 - Super Rugby (I have the feeling I'm gonna hate it ...)

Anyhow, why don't you have the N64 up there?
It's older than the Gba and was the childhood console of many people ...

EDIT: There's no tutorial, I don't know what the hell I'm supposed to do and I hate rugby
So it won't be fun, and I'm rerolling, sorry

Anyhow

195 - California Games II

Re: The Retro Challenge Thread: A Special Game From Your Mother

N64 has a higher system requirement to emulate than the other consoles.

After three months, I'm finally getting my computer to work.

But it looks like I missed out on the heyday of this thread.
