Lol, yeah.  I recalled seeing you had a shelf full of games and I thought there was no way you didn't have this one.  You have a complete collection of NES tapes?

lol 🙂

no nes set for me. i tried, got around 580+ loose carts. looked at like 400 of them and thought "why the hell do i have these" lol. then sold them to billy in 4c.

respect for anybody with a full set though. tough goal to complete.

What happens if you accidentally go over 500k? I don't know how likely that is to happen with warping and such.

 

You're supposed to go over 500k. Once you break it you stop.
So, highest possible score would be delivering the last blow to Dark Queen with a 499,900 or something score.

I finally got out of Turbo Tunnel without a death and then had a stupid death in Arctic Caverns. I still think that the caverns are less of a pain with this rule set than the surf level with its RNG so I've been avoiding that one.

My goal for now is Terra Tubes. if I even get that far I'm happy.

I'm having a blast though. This is going to be a fun week!

No but I do play it a lot. I can do some speedrun tricks but my fastest time without warps is like 45 minutes and with warps is 30.

Have you no deathed it without warps? Even with warps a no death run is extremely impressive.

Glad you are having fun. That was the main idea with this rule set.
Freshen things up with Battletoads.

I like that you scrapped the rule about having to get down to one life on the first level. Being able to warp to the turbo tunnel is nice.

New score posted on my top post. I think I'm going to stop warping to Stage 3. I hit the stage three warp to 5 on my second attempt. Managed to get to the end of the turbo tunnel and hit the barrier before the warp.

Stage 5 feels unfair. I might skip that warp too and go to stage 4 but we'll see if I can get enough points in 4 to justify the lack of warping.

I'm loving this game and the rules. Thanks @BeaIank

Fuck Robo Manus dude. I got to him deathless and of course that's where I died. Then I practiced Terra Tubes and that's also going to be a nightmare to do deathless, oh well.

The further this goes the more stressful it gets!

Warp to stage 3 and then beat the stage, go to the warp in stage 4 and you'll be at karnath's lair. From then, progress to the 2nd screen and when the snake first goes upwards, dash right and use that warp to intruder excluder. It's the easiest way to get far in the game and not having to deal with the rng of surf city.

      Hello and welcome, players!
      Be prepared, for this week you will have to rely on your fists, feet, knifes and machine guns to make through P.O.W.!
      This week will decide who will claim the crown to the Beat 'em up genre, proving they are the best bare hand fighter at VGS!
      @mbd39 currently leads the Beat 'em up scoreboard, with 23 points. Right behind him we have @NESfiend with 22 points, Krunch is creeping really close to both of them with 21 points.
      The three of them are the only ones with a chance to claim the title!
      So, without further ado, here's the rules
      Play until Game Over No point racking If you score less than 20,000 points, be ready to take your picture at the Game Over screen (it doesn’t stay up long) If you score more than 20,000 points, start a new game to get your score Each extra life remaining after beating the game adds 5000 points to your score. Highest score wins GENRE: Beat ‘Em Up

      Ladies and gentlemen, we are BACK with the last round of games of our beloved VGS NES Weekly Contest!
      To decide who will wear the laurels and claim the fame of being the 2021 VGS NES Weekly Contest Sports champion, we have one epic game of brutal action, where basketball meets street brawling!
      ARE YOU READY FOR Nekketsu Street Basketball?
      The rules are below:
      Pick battle mode (2nd option in the game) Pick 1P mode Pick Nekketsu as your team (first team in the screen) Pick US Navy as your opponent (second team in the screen) Pick the VEGAS stage to play on (second stage to the left, with the slot machines icon) Take your picture at the end of the match. Highest score difference for the Nekketsu team wins Participation: Beat the second team
      @0xDEAFC0DEhas a very comfortable 4 points lead over @NESfiend, who is the only who can challenge him for the Sports title this year.
      For Nesfiend to win, he needs to win this week and hope @0xDEAFC0DE doesn't score over 6th place, since he will be tied on most wins, but loses on the 2nd tie breaker, most 2nd places.
      Will he be able to pull such a miracle to claim the crown? Time will tell!
