Alright, this is as good as it's going to get from me; I can't beat the fourth track 馃槥

The hairpin turn right before the finish line. On the second lap, seems like there is always a car positioned to where you either slow down to get by him or crash. If I do survive it, slowing down takes all your momentum way and the clock runs out.聽 Its beyond brutal

Still time, I suppose...

Thats a testament to how crazy hard it really is. You took down rad racer 2 and that game is a straight up bitch. All week I wondered if someone would get thru level 4. Makes me feel better no one did, yet

Well, I managed to join the level 4 club albeit at the buzzer... 聽Yeah, this one; jeez. 聽It is Savage. 聽After all the joking around about it's short-comings/giving it a solid go, I'd hafta say that in retrospect I probably could've given it a bit more cred. 聽It's def. a great competition game and I wouldn't mind seeing it again. 聽Would've liked to have prepared more for this one and started sooner, but ever onward; Bring on Double Dragon and congrats to everyone who had the stomach to get into F-1 Racer.

Now, I just have to figure out how to get a little sugar into @NESfiend聽's R.C. Pro-Am II Cart. gas tank... Hmmm...

(I kid, I kid!)

The fact that there is a competition where a week is being dedicated to pro am 2 is proof that the world is still a great place. Going to be epic

I actually think F1 is a very well-made and fair game.聽 The only issue for those of us playing in 2021 is that it comes from the "Git good or fuck off" era of video games, so it's tough to approach it head on when living in a world where video games are now pleasure-filled comfort cruises that are essentially designed to make us happy.聽 F1 Race does not want to make anybody happy...

This cracked me up hard. Its accurate and makes me wonder if I need to take a long look at why I only want to play those games and have no interest in todays "pleasure cruises " lol.聽聽

Yes!!!! Post a score that puts us all to shame. Someone needs to conquer that 4th track. Would be cool to see outside a YouTube video.聽

I was actually thinking today that its somewhat weird that people generally disliked this and rr2, but really enjoyed anartic adventure. Anartic plays so similar to racers like these聽with added elements of jumping and items to collect. Its cuter too I guess. When I first played it, I thought people would complain that 4 racers was already 4 too many and that aa was a hidden 5th

Well if this had been a post-season tournament game, I guaran-damn-tee you that I (and probably others) would have beaten the fourth track.聽 But in the middle of a long regular season, the law of diminishing returns comes into play, and it's just not worth the time and effort it would take to do it, all for the sake of adding a couple of extra throw-away points to your regular season total...

Preachin' to the choir with this comment. 聽Personally I see the "Git good or fuck off" era of video games (2nd & 3rd gen) as diversions and accompaniments to Real Life. 聽Sometimes I'll even make a case that some are聽educational as far as problem solving. 聽When I watch someone playing the newer stuff (7th, 8th, 9th gen) I usually see vast open worlds with gameplay that has no set end/win/death and to me it looks suspiciously like a replacement for real life.

Im going to hack a rad racer 2 cart to feature a penguin instead of a car and all聽you bastards will all eat it up. Im not actually going to do that because Im not capable of anything like that at all. But it would prove a point!

Crazy ranting joke aside, the jumping is what makes that game really unique. So much pleasure derived from catching those colorful fish in the air

I really enjoyed anticipating whether or not to use the flight propeller and when to slow down in mid jump during a succession of pits.

      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聽currently leads the Beat 'em up scoreboard, with 23 points. Right behind him we have @NESfiend聽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鈥檛 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 鈥楨m 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聽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聽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!
