    LeeJ07 got a reaction from nosweargamer in Your Greatest In-game Feats   
    Managed to reach 1 million points on Laser Blast in the Activision Classics game on my PSP, back in the day.
    That was A LOT of tedious laser shooting, I can tell you. But it was super satisfying to finally hit 1 million and watch the number counter roll over to !!!!!!.
    I used to have a photo of the feat, too, but it's off in the Google Cloud somewhere now.

    Nintendo is still a fun company, and they are the only one willing to take seemingly crazy ideas with their hardware, and make it work. Sony and Microsoft, conversely, just do the same things over and over again.

    Got my first PS3 ever this year, too.
    Been playing a lot of Skyrim on it. If you like open-world action RPGs, definitely check out Skyrim.
    If you get it online, the Playstation Store has PS1 and PS2 games available to download at really affordable prices. I've got a lot of older PS1 RPGs that way.

    LeeJ07 got a reaction from HDN in We need another 2D Metroid game   
    Samus Returns is a very good remake of Metroid 2, but it is about time they put out a new 2D Metroid that isn't a remake.
    However, they're still distracted with Prime 4, and that game is still a complete unknown regarding when it'll ever be released, so I imagine anything else Metroid related is on the back burner for the foreseeable future.

    LeeJ07 got a reaction from HDN in "ATARI" today and the new AtariVCS dumpster fire...   
    Really, Atari is like a guy that went out and shot another, more famous person, then took his name and pretended to be the real deal, somehow fooling thousands of people in the process.
    I'd call Atari a shambling, walking dead version of itself, but it's not even that. It's actually a shambling, walking dead version of Infogrames, I believe.

    I didn't get a Dreamcast during its heyday.  I got it only a few years ago.  I have been very impressed with the system and its capabilities.  Sega really made an amazing machine.

    Same. I've said for a long time that I'm gonna get a Gamecube someday, but my Wii has perfect backwards compatibility with 'Cube games, so I've never actually needed one. If I ever get one, it'll mostly just be to say I have one.
    That said, that Game Boy Player is pretty darn cool, and I wouldn't mind being able to play GB, GBC, and GBA games on tv.

    Eeeh, I was off by 8.
    133 games for INTV in total. 118 carts for the Master Component, 6 for the ECS, and 8 cassettes and 1 cart for the fabled and much delayed Keyboard Component, which is naturally ridiculously rare these days.
    At any rate, 118, thereabouts, is a pretty attainable goal, but some of those later games are pushing three digits.

    Intellivision only had 125 games? I thought they would have more than that.
    I don't think I have ever mentioned this on the forums before, but I used to be really embarrassed by not having a 2600. A lot of my friends' parents had them rotting away in a basement. I always considered myself a massive retro video game fan, but I was always a little embarrassed that the oldest console I had was the NES. I always felt a little strange playing 2600 on Wii. Not like I showed it or anything. I'd just be like "Oh, that's cool," and stuff like that. When I got a little older I wasn't jealous anymore, but I just really wished I had one. 
    There was this one rich kid in school who always bragged about the cool crap he had. He would also fake-complain like, "Oh, my internet sucks. I can't even get Wi-Fi in my gym!" That was a real thing he said, though I'm paraphrasing a bit. Anyway, one day he wanted a 2600 and his parents just got it for him. He said he played it once and that it sucked and he never touched it again, or something like that. UGH, did that kid bother me back in the day!

    Nope, I have not. It looks wonderfully bizarre, and I'll need to try it sometime. Unfortunately, the going rate is way too high. I'm not paying $86 for it!
    To be honest, I'm more interested in the golf part rather than the ninjas. Not a big fan of beat em ups, but I can enjoy them. This reminds me a lot of Kung Fu (master) on NES, a game I really enjoy. But for now, for the money, I'll stick with NES Golf. I do plan to get it someday as I'd like to have the complete library at some point.

    @HDN As an aside, have you played Ninja Golf yet? Forgive the question if you have and mentioned it in this thread already, I haven't checked all the posts.
    Such a weird game concept, though, not that that's a bad thing, mind. It's a shame we never got a proper Ninja Golf franchise.

    Get one. Please. If you get one before I get rid of them, I could send you a couple games. I'm currently trying to find a home for them. I don't want to sell them as they were very kindly sent to me for free by @cjherr. I'd like to pay them forward to someone who'd play them someday, not sure when. My dad and I are trying to work out a deal. I'd like to do some work or something to earn the money to be able to ship them. My only condition for anyone who wants them: they have to pay it forward to someone else when they are able to. Cjherr was nice enough to send me these games, and I'd like to send some for free as well at some point. My end goal here is to get a chain of good deeds going, all to different people.
    It is a shame that the NES had to destroy it. The 7800 is a great system (and arguably better than the NES), but it didn't stand a snowball's chance in hell.
    There are actually two that I'm aware of. The first is a port of the arcade game, which can be found on Midway's Greatest Arcade Hits volume one. It works quite well and is the one I was referring to. Basically, you know how the Virtual Boy controller has two D-Pads on it? The controls remind me of that. Basically, you use the four C-buttons as a D-Pad. The C-buttons shoot, and the D-pad moves. It works well, but I prefer the sticks of the 7800 version. Maybe it's just because the 7800 version is easier. When I play the 7800 version, I flip-flop the sticks. I use the right joystick to move and the left to fire. I think it's the opposite of the arcade version, but I don't know.
    The second "port" is actually a 3D remake, Robotron 64. It looks like it plays basically the exact same as the arcade version, but it has 3D models and plays at an angle. I don't see the point. Reminds me of those arcade game remakes you'd see on Jaguar, but with a bit more polish this time. I don't have this game in my collection, but I have the former.
    Don't quote me on any of this! I'm no Robotron enthusiast! I'm just talking about what I remember from the past.

    I seriously gotta pick up a 7800 someday. Absolute pinnacle of what Atari could do, a shame it came out so late that the NES completely steamrolled it.
    Didn't know a version of Robotron came out on it, though. Pretty ambitious, considering the dual-joystick setup that game requires. (Didn't know there was a N64 port of Robotron, either. I'll have to look that up.)

    Seriously, even though Sega had to bow out of the hardware market (which still sucks sooo much), at least they went out on the highest note possible.
    PS2 may have won the numbers, but Dreamcast won our hearts.
