  1. As I was born in the 90s, I completely missed the 80s. But... I think a Nostalgia thread for those that were in the 80s should exist. So here is a thread for you 80s folks to talk about movies and fashion and TV and overall other 80s stuff. Here is the 90s Nostalgia thread. And the 2000s thread. In any-case, I now like some things from the 80s, like transformers and movies so I guess there are things younger people can talk about even if it wouldn't be nostalgia for us. As for me, am planning an 80s themed week, where I listen to 80s music, play 80s video games, and wear 80s fashion. Watching 'Back to the Future' is totally on my list. So any-ponies here have any suggestions for 80s week? go ahead and share some ideas please!
  2. I made a thread about the 90s, and the 80s... the-90s-nostalgia-thread the-80s-nostalgia-thread So I figured "why not make a nostalgia thread based the first decade of this millennium?" So lets do that, lets talk about the decade that most of you guys were either children in and/or were teenagers in. Talk about TV, movies, music, trends, all that stuff. Animation was rather notable, in that the american cartoon industry boom of the 90s continued into the 00s and then declined as the decade went on. Same with anime, there was a big anime boom in the early 2000s that busted by the end of the decade. This was the decade of invader Zim and Haruhi. Classics.
  3. Lately, i've been sucked back into a pinball frenzy and i realized that pinball has become a bit of a forgotten thing, considering that arcades are no more and there are barely any pubs out there that still own any Pinball Machines. Anyone still like to play Pinball?
  4. I grew up in the 90s and so are a lot of the other people on this site, and I was thinking about how fun it could be if there was a thread were we can discuss the 1990s, talk about TV, fashion, Music, trends, that kind of stuff. I was more of a late 90s/early 00s person, having been born in the real early 90s, teenager 90s things weren't targeted at me, unlike my older siblings. For example my sister had a whole bunch of those Grateful dead stuffed bears (at least that's what I think that's what they were), as well as had a bunch of rock and roll stuff like posters and things in her room, so that's what I think about when I think about stuff for teenagers in the 90s from my perspective as a kid at the time. (that and I may have secretly watched an episode or two of things that I was not allowed to watch, like South park and Beevis and Butthead, and Celebrity Death Match). I made threads about the 80s and 2000s too.
  5. Anyone who knows me knows I have always loved a good game. My love of gaming started all the way back to the original NES system, and I treasured the hours I spent getting new games, learning them and conquering them. Eventually my old NES gave up the ghost, and the games went off to a pawn shop. Now I am trying to revisit those old classics and recapture some of the magic I felt before. It is no secret I have become somewhat disillusioned with games in the last few years.. they have become bigger, louder and flashier.. but not necessarily better. Not saying they suck, but they just don't capture my attention the way they used to in the past, which is not necessarily their fault, just my own feelings in general. So this is my own personal little adventure to recapture some of that magic... to revisit the past and travel up into the present. Is it going to take a long time? You bet it is.. but that is OK.. I will have fun all the same. And that is what ANY game is supposed to be about. Now, to say I had a lot of NES games is an understatement.... a major understatement... and honestly is a story for another time. But for now let's just say I had a lot of them... and having so many of them, there were games I loved, and games I played once and then hid at the bottom of closets to never be touched again. I went through several systems, all the way up the PS3 where i finally just got tired of it all and slipped out of the market for gaming for awhile. For the sake of simplicity, this blog entry will only be for the NES classic system. I am not sticking to ONLY NES games, and have plans to move up nto SNES, Genesis and later systems as well, and I still may pop on some PS1 and 2 games here and there as well.. but at the moment I am mainly trying to concentrate on NES games. Also, I am mainly concentrating on games I used to own and games I have heard about and just never gotten around to playing that interest me. I won't replay everything nor finish everything... let's face it, some of the old stuff was pure garbage and I won't force myself though that crap... but I will at least mess with it a bit if for no other reason to remind myself why I hated it. I may end up putting up reviews as well.. but I dunno, I have never been keen on reviewing games. I do usually have a couple of games going at once as well. I was playing Dragon Warrior for example for a couple of weeks there, but in that time I also replayed Blaster Master, A Boy and His Blob and Bionic Commando. (Exploding Hitler never gets old!) The main reason for this is my favorite genres are RPGs, but as much as I love them, at times they get tedious and I need to break off and play something else. I am open to suggestions and discussions on the topic as well. I love sharing thoughts and opinions and learning what other people are enjoying. If you do suggest something and it is not something I loathe, or appears like I will loathe, then it will go on the list. I will update this as I have the time and interest. Sometimes work burns me out and sometimes I just am not in the mood to play. Also, just because it is on the list does not mean I will get to it anytime soon since as I said, it will change as I have time and interest.So we will see how it goes. Feel free to message me with any thoughts you may have. And yes, i am mostly running through the alphabet, although that is not a hard fast rule. It is more for convenience than necessity.

  6. OK, honestly I am not much for reviews or playthroughs, I am just not fond of sitting down and trying to write about my thoughts on any game or having people watch me play anything. However I did promise someone I would give it a go, so that is what i am doing. So without further ado, here is my incredibly semi sort of playthrough and review of a classic NES game... 8 Eyes! And by playthrough I actually mean pictures of screen shots with my assorted rambles and comments thrown underneath. I'll try and keep them sort of brief, but no promises. And by review, I mean just my totally awesome and yet irrelevant opinions. I don't claim to be an expert at reviewing games, just an expert on giving my opinion of them. I'll let you know right up front, this story has nothing to do with real eyes, so any ophthalmologists out there thinking you have just found your ultimate wet dream can put those tissues away. 8 Eyes is actually in reference to the 8 stones you have to dally around the world to pick up. The Story: After hundreds of years of chaos, mankind has finally emerged from the ruins of nuclear war. This world of the distant future has once again flourished under the guidance of the Great King, who harnessed the power of the 8 Eyes to rebuild the planet. These strange jewels of power were formed at the eyes, or center, of the eight nuclear explosions which nearly destroyed the Earth. In the wrong hands, the 8 Eyes could cause untold destruction... And now, they have been seized by the Great King's eight Dukes, in a desperate bid to gain control of the world for themselves. They have banished the King to the nuclear wastelands, and already their squabbling threatens to plunge the world into war once again! The task of retrieving the 8 Eyes falls to you, Orin the Falconer, the bravest and mightiest of the King's Guardsmen. With your fighting falcon, Cutrus, you must penetrate each of the 8 Dukes' castles. There you will face the Dukes' soldiers, and battle strange nuclear mutants such as living skeletons, giant wasps, and mud men. You must defeat the monstrous Boss of each castle to retrieve the Jewel of Power he guards. Then, to complete your quest, return the 8 Eyes to the Altar of Peace to await the return of the Great King, so that he may finish the rebuilding of Earth. Your reward will be the eternal gratitude of all mankind! ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The gratitude of ALL mankind? What about gold, land or getting to be a contestant on jeopardy? Fuck that gratitude thing! "Hello? Ford Motors? Yes I would like to buy a new SUV... do you take gratitude? You see, i have a whole lot of it in surplus and I thought I would put some of it to use to finally get that babe magnet I've been looking at... and to you know.... *cough* get my mom to quit driving me from country to country to defeat evil and stuff. Hello? Hello?... HELLO!!!?" Besides... I am taking the jewels back from people living in these countries, not sure how grateful they will be for me swiping their knick knacks... I think ALL mankind might be stretching it a bit. So with that out of the way, lets get to the elephant in the room right away when it comes to this game. I am a huge Castlevania fan.. I mean a huge one. That includes the classic series as much as the later games they put out, and holy shit... it doesn't matter whether you are squinting from far away or have your face pressed to the television screen this will pass for a Castlevania game. It is not just a Castlevania clone, it is Castlevania that ducked under the counter and came back up wearing a fake mustache. They literally stole Simon's whip away from him, gave him a pretty tiny dagger, and then tossed a bird side kick in because who doesn't want to bring their pets along when saving the world? Play style... well remember when I said the game is a clone... hell yeah you do because I just finished saying it, AGAIN! I cannot stress how much you seriously cannot play this game without being reminded with every step that this is a Castlevania clone through and through... if Simon took a wet fart, Orin had to change pants. However, where Simon and company get a whip.. you get a sword.... with an awful fucking hitbox. Seriously.. you would have better luck dropkicking the enemies than hitting them with your blade without taking damage yourself. Cutrus is a nice addition to the game to be fair. he is the falcon that flies around grabbing crap for you, leaving dead mice in your pocket for souvenirs and occasionally smacking an enemy. Also he is one the cool ways where 8 Eyes varies from that other game I should stop name dropping, in the fact that he makes 8 Eyes a two player game. That's right, you and a friend can team up. You get to be the mighty falconer with the not-so-mighty sword, your bud gets to be the bird bringing you stuff and occasionally plastering enemies with droppings. In this regard the game can be pretty fun, in solo play though, controlling Cutrus is right up there with using sandpaper toilet paper... you can do it if you have to, but holy crap is it rough... you will probably use a swear word or three! Now one place 8 Eyes blows 'Vania out of the water, is difficulty. You will WISH Dracula would come back after a couple of levels of this game. Some of the levels and enemies feel more like self punishment than actual challenging gameplay. And to make it more vile, that is just on the NORMAL setting! There are two more fucking difficulty levels above that one. Hard and "Go die in a hole weeb". I've beat it on normal, and gotten 3/4 of the way through hard before deciding just running into the wall at top speed gave me the same feelings of pain but without the hand cramps. Screw you very hard, I am not into masochistic entertainment, unless you bring me flowers or something.. then we'll talk. The main issue is just the damn hitbox on your weapon, and some of the more dastardly enemies you will encounter in the levels. The bosses are not too bad once you get used to them, but some of the regular levels are just such a damn pain. Anyway, let's do a sort of walk-through review shall we? Stop reading now if you don't like spoilers of really old retro NES games. So where do we start huh? Well you get to take your pick actually! You can play through any of the levels beside the House of Ruth at your leisure. However, because the developers were dicks they did put in a certain order you should play them in. If you do not play it in this order, the difficulty goes up even higher. You see to make a long story short, as you finish levels, you get new sword power ups, but the power up only effects ONE of the other bosses... so if you get the power up and choose the wrong next level you basically just threw that power up away. So, indeed 8 Eyes gives you an increase in power, so long as you do exactly what it tells to you to do with it. Take that free will! So I am starting in Spain. Because why the hell not? Because I don't want to spend more time cursing than I need to! For post apocalyptic worlds, you don't visit any of the "worlds" actually, just a bunch of houses. No exploring the war torn country-side, just a bunch of plodding around in strangers homes. Where clothes are entirely optional as you shall see. This place does not look too Spanish if you ask me... there are no bullfighting pictures anywhere! What about football (soccer to Yanks) or Flamenco dancers? How can I get into a Spanish mindset without pictures of bulls getting murdered or my favorite sports teams? Oh well, let's go inside anyway.. I know a Jason door when I see one. And I have seen enough Friday the 13ths to know what happens when i go in one. Awfully nice of the people of Spain to label their doors as definitely not emergency exits. Also, that is the happiest bat I have ever seen. Onwards and upwards! What? Castlevania clone? What makes you think so? I am wearing a Batman sidekick costume, this is nothing like a Castlevania game! Ignore those stairs and my appearance walking up them, and that knight at the top and those sort of Medusa heads. Nope, no clones here! Excuse me while I change pants... again. Screw you Simon! Holy crap dude, put on some clothes! Is the apocalyptic future really so bad you have to go around fighting people in your tighty whiteys wearing dirty gym socks? Apparently for the people of Spain it is. But I could be mistaken, he might not be attacking me at all, just working on his high kicks for the High School Musical enactment of The Karate Kid 3. Ah well time for a boss... OMG! Are you a giant Keebler elf? Is that a severed head? Is that a horribly cheap nerf sword? So many questions! This is like a collection of my lamest nightmares all come to life at once. Also what a splendid mustache. Bosses in this game are less of a fight and more of a war of attrition, you just go back and forth popping them and using subweapons and such to stun them... in this case throw some frozen balls to get in some free hits. Another way in which this game differs from Castlevania, is what happens when you beat a boss. You have tea with them!! Served by a skeleton!! This game just got a little cooler I think. Also make note of this scene, since it is far different than all the rest for the most part. I wonder if he is having "green" tea? What a pleasant way to end a particularly difficult disagreement with an an evil duke intent on killing you. Dracula could learn a thing or two about civility from these guys. Anyway.. onward to Egypt! Home of the pyramids and crazy archeologists battling Nazis. Well it is pyramid shaped I suppose... Nice hats guys! The conehead look is apparently hot in Egypt in the far flung future! Or maybe they are just all really huge fans of Ancient Aliens. What am I saying... Ancient Aliens has no fans... people just watch for Giorgio Tsoukalos' hair because it is just so mesmerizing. I once sent it a love letter, but it's agent wrote back that it was currently seeing William Shatner's toupee and the two were quite happy. Needless to say, I was crushed. Anyway.. hey a door! Let's see what's behind it! Hey guys... Dracula called... he is issuing a cease and desist order on the use of his Blood Skeletons. And boy was he pissed! He said you could have the Fleamen though since no one likes them anyway. Seriously, I know different game and all... but fuck fleamen. Strange place to store you toiletries I must say. Don't you people believe in closets and pantries. Oh right.. you're a bunch of undead... what are you doing with toiletries anyway? "Does this smell infected to you?" "Good lord it's all green!!!!" "Well I am a troll monster..." "Oh... right.... yeah, it smells infected." Egypt boss.... Every bodies grandfather! Or maybe that eccentric uncle no one talks about unless the kids are out of the room. Great job matching the robe to your hair color gramps! I bet that took some time to find at your local Wal-Mart in the bargain bins. Again, just use your freeze balls. What the hell? Was the teal not doing it for you? Did orange suddenly become all the rage after your defeat? The waiter is dead, no need to wow him with your fashion sense. Still good at matching the wardrobe to hair color though. "The carpet matches the drapes to... care for a peek?" "No.. no I don't." And with that disturbing encounter out of the way, onward to Italy! Wow.. Italy sure loves their green houses. Also their door switches look like lipstick, just pointing that out. And it is pretty dumb to put the switch to open your front door on the outside of your house. You have to call your neighbors to let you out just to mow your lawn. I bet the owners have to put on parachutes just to go grocery shopping. UTINNI! Man Star Wars is everywhere since Disney got the license. Sorry sir there are no Droids here... in fact this is not even Tatooine! Get the hell out here and back to your own franchise! Where is a Stormtrooper when I actually need one? The fashion faux pas continues! Your choice of horrors....naked Don Rickles or Santa Clause in a diaper. The enemies in this game just love to toe the line with indecent. Of course when you have survived a nuclear holocaust I suppose you can pretty much wear what you want to right? Dude pay attention and get off your cellphone and fight me! "Sorry dude... gotta go, this lame-o here is really affecting my mood... Yeah we can totally play some CoD later. I'll have to get permission from my mom though" And now for a double boss! Well, not really but that is what I am calling it. "C'mon Heathcliff, lets go get your litter box changed.... all of Italy is complaining." "Phew! I'll say!" You actually don't have to kill the cat to beat him... but all it does is get in the way so you might as well. You can get an invincibility in this fight to make it easier for the first part of it. Use the freeze balls for rest of it... hell just use the freeze balls for every boss fight, who am I kidding? Did you just feel the need to take off your coat or something? I feel so overdressed now. So... sorry about killing your cat? Especially after you changed the box. My bad. Maybe you could let some kids play in it or something. Onto India before I get reported to the ASPCA... if they still exist that is. Welcome to India, land of the Taj Mahal... but we are not going there... just another small house.... I wonder have all the people in these countries just moved into one building each and designated it the official "new country"? The accommodations must be horrible! The line for the bathrooms must be insane. "Taste my boxing glove on a spring!" "It tastes terrible!" "Yeah punching all these naked bearded guys in the junk gives it that strong aftertaste" And about those naked bearded guys... clothes must also be a luxury in future India. Either that or the humidity is JUST that bad. You would think with guys running around with spring loaded boxing gloves they would learn to adopt pants with built in cups. I mean what else is anyone going to do with those things? Boss time... and he IS FABULOUS! You don't see wardrobes like that outside of getting dressed in a dark room from a strangers closet these days. And he is bringing back disco in style from the looks of it. Apparently having your ass kicked included having the fashion sense kicked right out of you as well. That might be a good thing for the people of India, since they were getting tired of every Friday being forced to do the YMCA dance. Onto Africa where they certainly are not into doing the hustle.. I hope. I left the 70's for a reason. Hmmm giant doorbell? Giant door...? If King Kong does not answer I will be so disappointed. Of course if he does answer I will have a whole lot more to worry about than a bunch of glittery doorstops and what I will do with 85lbs of gratitude... Seriously... dudes... what is it with no one in the future wearing any clothes and diapers being the preferred armor?? "We are under attack, EVERYONE, get your fetish gear! We will make him so uncomfortable he will have to retreat!" Hah! The jokes on you guys, I got through Custer's Revenge, Conker's Bad Fur Day and The XXX Adventures of X-Man. This is a cake walk! Better just hurry to the boss though, this is starting to creep me out a bit I admit. Wow.. even the boss is under-dressed. You would think if someone was invading your house you would have the good sense to not go out in your under-roos to fight them. By the way, nice fish tale hand... do you know Aqua-Man? And another quick costume change. Looks like you went and put on some armor just so you could have some tea. Glad we understand your priorities fish-boy. I know there is a skeleton serving us, but all he is armed with is teacups and sugar packages... I would imagine that is less dangerous than me with a sharp object. Onward to Germany! Italy called.. they want their house back... or at the very least quit stealing all their green paint! Of course for all I know maybe green is the only color of paint left in the world... that means in Germany all the muppets on Sesame Street will be Oscar and all the Volkswagens will be piled around stop signs. Hey look! A cameo by the face dude from SMB2 whenever you steal a key! Glad to see he is still making a living outside of a Mario game that no one actually likes! I wonder if he is still friends with that dude from Star Trek 5 and dating the Gorgon heads from Castlevania? I would ask him but I see a key over there... "coo coo I'm a bird" "Yes, yes you are. Can we get on with it now?" "Flap flap whooooshhhh" *Face palm* "I am really embarrassed by that whole bird thing, and especially when I laid that egg at the top of the stairs" "Don't worry about it.. at least you are wearing pants" BTW, I notice he did not feel the need to change clothes after getting his ass kicked. I guess once you've pantomimed Big Bird in front of your would be assassin you've done laid all the shame cards on the table. Onto Arabia! Now this actually reminds me of an Arabian setting. I would totally believe it if Jafar answered the door right now. I just hope that stupid parrot is not with him. Seriously... Gilbert Gottfried sucks. He can kill other comedy acts by just having his name shouted out loud during a performance. He is like kryptonite to comedy. Also, it is here I started really getting bored of doing this and tried speeding it up some. "Dirty street-rat! What have you done with Princess Jasmine!" "Robin Williams help me!!!!" "I can show you the world!" "Is it located outside of this house? If so, I'm all yours!" Wow, you traded in your turban for a sailor hat? Or is that a stylish beanie? The world may never know.... and even if it did.. would it care? "This is for those Aladdin jokes, isn't it? And my Gottfried insults" "Yes" And now we are able to tackle the House of Ruth. The House of Ruth also doubles as a Red Cross shelter. Who knew? What!!!! But we had tea together!?? I thought we were friends!! Actually this stage is nothing but a boss rush. You get to fight all of the Dukes over again one after the other, proving tea does not end hostilities between warring nations. Defeat them all and you get to tackle the final boss... no worries though, they are a lot easier this time around in a sense, since you have all your power ups and you get a ton of weapons and items, and your health is refilled after each fight. The one boss missing from the rush is Germany's... I suspect he ended up in one of those burning Volkswagens by the green stop signs on his way to the big fight. Ruth! "will you be my valentine? I love your hat. Also I won't complain this time that someone is not wearing pants" "Sexist pig! Die" "Yikes!" Ruth is actually not too tough.... she attacks with a whip and just stomps back and forth over you. (So many fetishes, so little time...) "You changed dresses just for me? Does this count as a date? Hurry up with the wine skeleton!!!! I'm sorry, the service around here sucks!" Anyway, that is the end of 8 Eyes... well except for.... Placing those damn jewels you have been collecting. Yes, you have to place them in the correct order to win the game. All those fights don't mean squat unless you have been writing down the clues you have been picking up. And there is the ending screen. A nice gargoyle shows up to congratulate you and tell you how awesome and courageous you are for battling through a world without pants. Here is what he says so I don't have to bother putting up screen shots of every single page. Congratulations Orin!! In Fighting Your Way Through The Eight Perilous Castles, You Have Proved That Your Swordsmanship And Falconry Talents Are Great. In Solving The Riddle Of The Eight Jewels, You Have Proved Your Skill As A Logician. These Were Great Tests Of Skill, And Only The Strongest Of Warriors And The Wisest Of Scholars Could Have Completed This Quest. I Realize That There Is Only One Thing More Gratifying Than Coming To The End Of A Great Game, That Is Realizing The Challenge Has Just Begun. Go Now Orin, Another Quest Awaits. In This Second Adventure, Your Skills Will Be Tested As Never Before. If You Are Truly Skilled, You May Be Able To Finish Some Of It! Good Luck! So yeah, there are two more quests after this one... but screw that. Normal mode was a pain in the ass enough as is. I had enough deaths to show for it. Anyway, that is my trip through the world of 8 Eyes. It is not a bad game, but not a great game either. It has enough Castlevania similarities to make you want to send Konami a letter (lol, silly person, Konami does not care about games anymore!), but a few differences to set it apart. This game is challenging, but really due more to aggravating programing in the game itself vs. actual difficulty. I would give the game a 5/10 overall for being different enough to be worth checking out, but aggravating in the controls and ease of play. Sorry for making this so long. I'll work on making them shorter in the future, if I bother with doing anymore of them that is.
  7. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ||NNSpace NNSpace or Neon Space is a game i developed in a week so far, it's a retro style arcade game that consists in surviving as long as possible in upcoming waves of always harder waves, since the game is currently in development so there is nothing much to see but it's going to get bigger (i am NOT an artist so please don't commentate on the art style and such) dowload at: upcoming features: -enemies with smart AI (chase player) -small motherships (float around with small turrets) -big motherships (small bosses with multiple turrets and rocket turrets) -huge motherships (bosses that spawn every 30 waves and get stronger with multiple turrets rockets and spawn smaller spacecrafts, give an extra life if u defeat em) -scoreboard (scoreboard of current top scores) -more kind of meteors -more stuff that you guys can suggest as of version 0.6.2 -rockets are now slightly slower and easier to hit as of version 0.6.1 -rockets now destroy also meteors as of version 0.6 -added rocket turrets as of version 0.5.1 -added a turret on the space station (with player aim) as of version 0.5 -space station as of version 0.4.1 -solved small respawn bug -time counter as of version 0.4 -small enemy spaceships with no smart AI (don't chase player) -wave counter as of version 0.3 -red big meteors as of version 0.2 -blue splitter meteorices -light blue splitted meteorites as of version 0.1 -green normal meteories -lives -score (original game maker forum page)
  8. The premise is simple: someone posts a videogame screenshot, and you try to guess it. After the game is guessed you can then post a screenshot of your game in return. Retro and obscure games are allowed. Hints are also allowed. As much fun as it is to stump your opponent it's also fun to move onto the next game to guess so it's relative. I'll start with a shot I think is fair but not too easy. Guess this game:
  9. Check out these two songs I made. I was going for a retro-y kind of vibe. I like the first song the most, but I would like to know what you guys think. Also, check the rest of the stuff on my soundcloud, its mostly piano and orchestral compositions (I'll probably make another topic for that kind of stuff later)
  10. BETA 1.0 This is a NES-like Platformer Shooter similar to Contra. Two brothers are 'kidnapped' to the Game World by The Virus. It asks them to gather data from various games, which would grant it more power. Once the request will be fulfilled, the brothers will be brought back to real world. But what will happen next? Is the game world in danger? Do Super Coolstory Brothers find another way? > Unique Gameplay! (As for RPG Maker) Engine' scripts are totally reprogrammed > LOCAL MULTIPLAYER! > Bring Back Memories From Your Childhood! > Original Soundtracks! > Original Sound Effects! > Old-school gameplay! (8-bit style) COLOSSAL ANT - A murderous ant. For some reason it damages humans when touched and HOLY BALLS! It takes few bullets to kill and is annoying to hit! Drastically upscaled so you can see. Spuder - Dis Spuder can shoot cobwebs all over the place. It can't aim properly to be honest. Wox - A hybrid of a wolf and a fox. This cute dogie will gladly run through hug you. Rock - It has hard character. It wants to prove, that you don't need life to move and not be grounded. SMALL DATA CHIP - Increases DATA value by 1 BIG DATA CHIP - Increases DATA value by 3 SMALL HEART - Restores HP by one heart BIG HEART - Restores HP by three hearts 1UP - Gives one Extra Life Time - Gives some Extra Time Planned Items: Heart Container - Increases maximum life by one heart Super Coolstory Bros! BETA 1.0 IMPORTANT NOTE Google Drive and related to it sites assume, that this file is dangerous. That's because games made in the 'RPG Maker' series have an uncommon file type (custom compression), which isn't trusted by antiviruses. It even says, that the file is dangerous right after I create it, which is ridiculous. Nevertheless, I don't take any responsibility for potential harm. I'm just letting you know how things look like, but it's worth to be careful anyway.
  11. This mainly stems from my being here for ~4 years, so there is a lot of nostalgia wired into this post. I was wondering if MLP Forums could get a "Retro" look on the "Change Theme" option when users scroll down, so that the site looks and almost feels like how it was back in ~2012 (scrapped functionalities or features don't count, obviously, just the theme/look of the forums). I thought it might be nice if older users were to see it again just for all the times they had here, and for newer guys to see what the site looked like long ago.
  12. It's been a long time since I've done a review, or been on this site in general. Sorry about that, I guess Today I'm going to be reviewing one of my all time favorite games on the NES 64: Yahtzee [Yatzy is a very violent game, and I don't recommend you looking it up if you have a weak stomach.] GAMEPLAY Gameplay is very smooth, running at a solid 100-230 frames a minute. This is very impressive for the time (1967, the same year Mr. Lincoln died). It is a turn based game, players roll 18 six-sided die, and then count up the total. If you do not get a score over 100, all the other players have to take turns tormenting the other with hateful insults and slaps to the back of the head until said player falls unconscious or is put into a coma from repressed memories. All in all, it's solid. OBJECTIVE The objective of Yanghigh is to capture as many lands as possible, while still managing your money and providing for your family. The game has a leveling system, and this allows you to grow closer to global domination. After capturing the world in an iron fist, you have 2 options; mass genocide or the deletion of the Internet. It might be hard to choose between these, as both of them are very appealing. However, your actions don't really matter, as this is a game about putting dice in a plastic cup and counting. There is no objective. I lied. PROS There are many pros in Yogert, such as the advanced real-time strategy, the over-the-top graphics, and the expert voice acting. However, my favorite feature is the text-to-speech option. That's a pretty good one. CONS Your fingers might hurt. RATYING Yagtz isn't for children, but it's great for people between the ages of 26-42. If you fall in this range, I reccommend
  13. So, are there any old school gamers on this forum? Man, I see everybody has this XBox 360 jazz, the Wii, Playstation 5, Kinect, whatever. And I'm sitting over here with the newest system I own being a PS2. XD So, who else likes kicking it old school, and what's the best system? I hope I covered all the most popular ones in the poll.
  14. I ordered some Chiptune music for my video outros take a listen here and let me know which track you think is the best? Also discuss!
  15. Alright, In my last pixel art thread for Rarity, @Bradicuda asked if I had done Pinkie Pie yet. Well, that sounded like a pretty good idea, so I went ahead and made this. Let me know what you guys think, and hope you like it!
  16. For Sonic's 20th anniversary, SEGA decided to merge three eras of Sonic history- classic, Dreamcast and modern- into one game, 'Sonic Generations'. In it, both classic and modern Sonic were playable characters, running through stages from previous Sonic games (with updated music from the originals) as well as fighting familiar bosses such as Perfect Chaos and the Death Egg Robot. Simply put, if you had played any of the main games in the series, you were going to feel the nostalgia, hard. What I'm wondering is, what other gaming series would you like to have their own Generations-styled installment? Personally, it would have to be the Mario series for me. There are quite a few characters that haven't appeared again in years- Wart and Tatanga, for example- and it'd be great seeing them and some other retro settings return modernised. Plus, considering its long history, there'd be a lot of material to work from, even disregarding the various spin-offs that it has. What are your ideas?
  17. This thread is dedicated to the golden years of the 80s and 90s. Describe you're best founded memories you ever had as a child growing up in those years and tell us what year was the best year for you and why. Also tell us what was you're favorite cartoons and toys and TV shows and movies from those years.
  18. 16-bit versions of the horror comic so popular, hardly anyone knows about it
  19. I was curious is there is any one out there who loves to stick to the retro games even though they could be 20+ years. I recently went back to play the old Legacy of Kain games as i never finished them. What retro games do you stand by even though they are out-dated? (or are they?) Two other games i always stand by is DOOM and Dune. I would love to meet some new ponies who share my love of those games as well.
  20. Can anyone recommend any good GBA RPG's? I liked Lufia on the GBC and I like that kind of RPG for lack of a better term casual/easy rpg. I like retro rpg's that aren't taxing but have great music and animations. (Other system recommendations welcomed).
  21. I'm a gamer. It's something I've been pretty proud of my whole life. I don't entirely fit in with the community of people who call themselves "gamers." I'm talking about the people who only play Call of Duty, who only buy Xbox or PlayStation because Nintendo consoles are generally underpowered these days in comparison to its competitors and they don't have the graphical capabilities of Nintendo's competitors. And I have to agree that this is true starting with the GameCube. Nintendo probably has a different target market. Anyway, the console war is a debate in itself that should be spared for a different time. Now I have to say that most games do present a challenge these days. There are some hard games out there. I just finished Borderlands 2 on True Vault Hunter Mode. And it was a challenge. I'm not sure that I want to try Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode. At least, I'm not doing it solo like I did the previous two modes. And Borderlands 2 wasn't even that tough on the harder difficulty. Now I know there are some truly hard games out there like Demon Souls and Dark Souls. I haven't played them yet and I'm not sure that I want to spend money on a game I can't beat. It makes as much sense to me as buying Dickens' "Great Expectations" as a first grader. When I was six years old, I couldn't hope to be able to read that book. Hell, when I was 13, I missed most of it. Now lately, I've clocked a lot of hours on Borderlands 2. I mean, A LOT. I have it both on my PC and on the PS3 I just picked up a few days ago (I had to get a PS3 because after months of trying, I can't convince my roommate or my brother to kill their consoles and switch to PC and the PS3 is relatively cheap nowadays). Steam says I've got 104 hours on Borderlands 2. It's second only to Skyrim, which I've played 282 hours. But I've owned Skyrim for nearly 2 years now. I've only owned Borderlands 2 for a few months. And I know I've clocked at least 20 more hours this week on the PlayStation. So I decided to take a break from Borderlands today. In fact, I wanted to get retro with my gaming today. Now when I say "retro" I'm talking about a game on a platform that is so old that even though it looked good then, it looks like crap today, the console it was on is no longer relevant and 99% of the games on said console is all abandonware anyway. Like the companies know they won't make any more money from these games so they don't see the point in going after the copyrights that have been infringed upon. There's no profit to be made. That cow is out of milk. I started today with a little GameBoy Tetris. You know, the game with the famous A theme? Tetris has been around for a long time and everyone knows what it is. There have been hundreds or thousands of variations of Tetris. But I just like the classic play-til-you-fill-the-play-field style of Tetris. Now I generally play Tetris on my phone. I'm pretty good at it on there. So I thought I would do pretty well on the Game Boy Tetris. It turns out that it doesn't translate very well. My best game on my phone was 882,107 with 488 lines made. The best I could possibly do on the Game Boy Tetris was a meager 71,418 with only 91 lines. Button presses are much slower than finger drags in positioning a piece and the delay between when the piece hits the bottom and when it sets is much smaller on the Game Boy. In a nutshell, coming from Tetris on my smartphone to going back to the past, Tetris is a brutal game. Then I played some Super Metroid. This is actually an old game I've never played. But I did play Zero Mission on the GBA not long ago and I wanted to try it out. I just can't platform very well anymore. I can't get used to the way Samus jumps. And I keep running out of rockets! I'll be coming back to this game later, but for now, I'm done with it. Finally (after watching an interesting documentary on the coelacanth) I ended up playing Mortal Kombat II. I used to be awesome at the game when I was 7. But I haven't played the game in 14 years. The last time I played this game was before some of you were even born. So there. If that helps to put it in perspective of how long it's been. Now I can remember being 7 and the only person I could never beat at this game was my father. I did beat him every now and again but I think he just let me win that one time every hundred or so just because he knew I'd say something like, "Yeah Dad! I kicked your ass!!" just to gauge my mom's reaction. So yeah, I haven't played this game in a long time and I just wanted to check it out again after 14 years. It was easy when I was young and the game hasn't changed since it got its first release. And as it turns out, I suck at this game too. The furthest I made it was Round 2 of the second fight. I did find the difficulty settings. I turned them down to "Very easy" and went back. The farthest I made it was the 4th fight. And then I gave up. The game is that hard for me. So at the end of the day my day has been unproductive and less than enjoyable. It does have nostalgic going for it, though. I'm beginning to believe that I was a much better gamer when I was a kid than I am as an adult.
  22. Alright. So recently, I have acquired a copy of RPG maker VX ace, with plans of making a game in classic, 16-bit style. I would like to get as much help as possible on the project. My hopes are that it would have a true-to-console 16-bit feel. As in, all of the music, the graphics, and pretty much everything would be stylized like that of a Sega Genesis or Super Nintendo game. (This is partially why I started to do pixel art) What I would need, would be those kind enough to offer their help in creating the music, the graphics, as well as the storyline. So... Writers, musical artists, concept artists, pixel artists and even anybody who knows all of the in's and out's of making a good RPG, and even those good at social networking. If anybody would like to help: PM me, or just leave a comment.
  23. One thing every gamer has experienced and known for a long time is Mario, the icon of Nintendo. He has been the mascot of the company with the most successful games in most of his titles. His first debut was for the NES, being a launch title called Super Mario Bros. Every gamer has played this once, and I know that by many, most struggle with it to this day. I have the game boy advance re-release, and managed to FINALLY beat it a week ago! After so many years, and I have finally beaten it! Now, enough of me, my question to you is have you managed beat this game? If not, what was the furthest you've ever made it? PS: I hate the hammer bros....
