Thanks Justin! That's a cool video! (BTW, I think I still have the Pitfall High Score, but maybe you were being prophetic in Retrogamer beating me ;) )

This was a lot of fun. And I don't think I ever won a high score contest before.  :spot:

I have never been a high score guy until events like this.

It didn't mean much when the cartridge erased your score when you turned it off. :unsure:

And honestly, I wouldn't have been surprised if RP made a last second winning entry.  :o

I don't know if I can participate in every HSS, I am definitely going to try the next game, since I already have it and will need to cover it on a future podcast. :thumb:

My score was so bad it didn't even make the video! :)

 

You guys are both absolutely right! Making this video was tricky and difficult to have ready so quickly after the end of the Squad Challenge so it was a little rushed. Next time I'll make sure everything's perfect  :emoji-E420:

Great video!! Have to clarify an error. Nosweargamer had the highest score in Pitfall not me. I have yet to play Pitfall. I'm gonna go for another game. Which should I do a round of out of the next 3?

 

Dracula's Curse

Contra

Or Mario Bros. (NES)

 

Mario Bros. on NES would be my vote :)

Haha you're absolutely right Arenafoot! Thank you!!

 

 

 

Ok guys!! Mario Bros for the NES it is!! Time to kick some shellcreepers, sidesteppers, fighter flies, and slipice butts!!

 

Looking forward to it Retrogamer!!

 

Also, nosweargamer, if you'd like to post it, you are more than welcome to post your winning score to the Scoreboard. I think you've set a high watermark for Centipede and if someone comes along in six months with a higher score it would be cool to see this continue.

 

I would invite all future Squad Challenge winners to post to the Scoreboard if they wish as well.

:mac_pirate: I've updated the video to make the corrections pointed out above. I'd like for these videos to be a reliable source for everything that's going on, so I took the time and made it right.

 

I was only joking about my score not being there. I appreciate you updating it though! I just don't want you to think I was upset. The video was great as it was.

Done! I wouldn't be surprised at all if RadioPoultry ends up beating it!

I know you're not complaining StormSurge  :)  it's important to me that the videos are accurate and on point, otherwise there's not a lot of value in watching them. Everybody who made the effort to show up for Squad deserves to have their scores included.

 

It was a challenge to make the video happen so quickly after the Squad Challenge ended, I knew I'd make a mistake  ;)

OK, judging from a YouTube video I just watched, the score rolls at 1,000,000.

 

Ah, but according to the manual, the easy mode does roll at 100,000. Interesting quirk. So Lee was correct as well.

 

Correct about both.  This is mentioned right in the manual (pg. 7).  

 

Here's my video of rolling the score (at 1 million):
