Shouldn't your final score be 681k? That's impressive as hell though. I've never no deathed Battletoads.

There's no way I'd ever have that much patience. I was lucky to stick with it long enough to finish the game one time. It seems like @arnpoly and @BriGuy82 either no deathed it or 1cc'd it during the 2015 contest.

Surprisingly a 1cc of Battletoads is actually easier because you want to have a lot of lives late in the game.  My first win was a 1cc.

It took me a few continues to finish it. From what I remember, I had a lot of trouble with the later levels.

You know, it would take me a really, really long time to get gud enough to beat this game, but there's something about this game that's really working with me.  I think I may try to beat this game legit.  For me, that means cheating with save states until I master ever level, then sitting down and running through the game with no cheating.

I already save-stated my way through SMB1 about a year and a half ago because I'd never beat the game personally.  Maybe I should master that one and then come back to this.  Everyone seems to cry and whine that the stage 3 turbo tunnel stage is sooooo hard.  I'll admit I did save-state at the check points a bit last week, but eventually I got to where I could "speed run" to the turbo bikes in the stage so fast, I said "forget that" and just played the game as it is on my NES.

I don't want to become a gaming snob.  I mean, in this crowd, it's obvious I'm at the bottom of the list of people trying to not go for just participation points.  However, when I can play a game in two weeks that everyone says is "impossible" but to me it feels incrementally learnable and winnable, I start questioning the masses and thinking that, you know... if people really wanted to win at games, all they have to do is put real effort into it rather than just mashing buttons.  but, admittedly, that was how I played for the first 18 years of my life.

Ahh 2015... Where did my hair go?... I should glue @docile tapeworm's neck beard hair to my head. I'm sure it'll look natural.

I made it to near the end of Terra Tubes losing only two lives both to Robo Manus. And then I stupidly died a third time to a duck (tried to jump over the last duck before the goldfish and shark and didn't make it).

Progress! If I could just get better at fighting Robo Manus I should do good.

Using my current strats I'll reach 500k in Rat Race probably. I'm not skipping the first two levels but I'm also not going for points from birds. If I get desperate I can go for more points earlier on in order to reach 500k earlier but I still think I can do better.

Playing this way is also forcing me to become a much better Battletoads player. I like it.

I mean, everyone who beats Battletoads 1CCs it.

And arnpoly put up an amazing low score run in 2016.

You absolutely can. You just needed the right push.

Bea is slowly building an army of NES gaming, warrior machines.  What is her master plan?  What could it be...?

      Welcome, welcome!
      This week we will see who will be crowned the VERY FIRST VGS NES Weekly Contest Racing champion!
      Right now, the dispute has @NESfiend with 30 points and a very comfortable lead of 5 points over @PII, who has 25 points. With 22 points, @Dr. Morbis has no chance to take the crown from Nesfiend, so the dispute this week is between only him and Pii
      To decide this matter, the game of choice is R.C. Pro Am II. The rules are as follow:
      Player 1p only Play till game over You are not allowed to use continues. You ended 4th? TOUGH LUCK! You are done for.

Your user name MUST be written or typed on a piece of paper and be in the picture for your score to be valid.  The entire TV screen, or computer monitor if you are playing on an emulator, MUST be in the picture for the score to be valid.  No partial screenshots will be considered or accepted.  No screenshots by hitting "print screen" on a computer will be allowed.  You must take a picture of your computer monitor.  There may be instances where this will be acceptable, but it will be at the discretion of myself and the contest organizers.  Also, the use of turbo controllers is forbidden, as well as any cheat codes, Game Genies, slow motion functions, or save states if playing on an emulator.  Also, we will only be using NTSC systems for the contests.  The use of PAL systems will NOT be allowed.  Good luck everyone and have fun

      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!
