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

Un-freaking-believable... It generated 128. That's Cheetamen II.

Unfortunately for me, this game is impossible to play through due to a programming bug, as well as it being a game that had not been fully developed. May I omit from this one and have the randomizer choose another, considering the conditions required to complete the challenge?

Perfect, ZSNES is not able to read the ROM image as it contains an invalid checksum.

ZSNES doesn't play NES games, if I remember correctly.

EDIT: I got Castlevania!

How do you beat a game that can't be beaten?

Get a high score that you feel is good. I have it on Animal Crossing and my high score is... let me check... 349,800. There's your motivation.

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

The /v/ thread got some new rules. Dunno if Berry Punch wants to add them to this, but posting anyway because they seem fair.
Quote:
1) Savestates are allowed ONLY for the purpose of taking screenshots and ONLY if your emulator/game in question does not have a pause function.
2) Rerolls are allowed under the following conditions:

-The game you get requires some sort of hardware functionality that cannot be accurately emulated to complete (eg, Boktai)
-The game would otherwise require cheats, hacks, or alteration of the software to complete due to a bug (eg, Cheetahmen II)
For games that have a high score, the rule Is
>if no high score has been established, set a goal and beat it
>if you're playing something another person already has a high score on, beat their high score
Damnit Erikson you ruined my easy win.

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

I got Win, Lose Or Draw.

It's a video game adaptation of a game show from the 80's I've never heard of. I was hoping for a good game, like Silver Surfer.

If not for me, you'd still have to look them up. This Tenser dude's score is 367,100. World record is 5,391,500. To exceed mine is going to be enough blood and sweat.

Ah, good, someone posted the extended rules. The high score thing could get fun and competitive.

Apparently one of the bosses in Adventure Island II is a tree's wang.

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

I rolled 531, which is... Road Blasters! Now I never played this game, but can it even be completed? I just checked a review and some guy said he loved it and played many hours on it, but never really got past stage 30+. Not sure if I have the time to try that. :p

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

Damn, I'm on one of the last levels of Adventure Island 2 and I have to go to work... I can't savestate.

Guess I'm going to do what I did as a kid and just leave it on until I'm home.

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

Rerolling every time you get a less than preferable game ruins the fun imo. To me, this challenge is like when you were growing up and your parents would take you to a rental store and let you rent one game. You played the ❤❤❤❤ out of it, regardless of how "good" it was because that game was your weekend, for better or worse.
