I'm still waiting for @Gloves to give me my beat em up charm from last year.

He is very busy working on the new RACING CATEGORY CHARM! Rumor is it will be based on the little racecar token in monopoly and should standout very nicely in my posts when I take that bitch down.

Next you will have @bertsampson inventing genres so he can win a charm since he sucks now.

I knew it would get brought up that I SUGGESTED (rather than created) the genre as some sort of an asterisk on my inevitable win. I will take this opportunity to say once and for all to announce that I do not, and WILL NOT, ever give a shit. I will celebrate that win harder than whomever wins the tournament and then some. For anyone who wants to travel to Southeast Missouri, there will be a catered party, a trophy ceremony, and a very long victory speech that will likely include tears. All who attend will be provided an autographed, but otherwise very chewed up, copy of RC Pro AM. RSVP accepted via PM

If I'm invited to the celebration/riot, I'm good as long as you can use your legal skills to keep me and @docile tapeworm out of your local correctional facility.

If doesnt reach the level of meth or beating on a woman, they dont have room for you. If somehow it gets there or above, I represent the biggest bail bondsman in town and the friends and family discounts are generous

If me and skinny were ever in the same place, I'm sure we would need the friends and family discount after whatever we ended up getting into.

I managed to clear this after all. That's an entire morning that I won't get back. I even beat my score from 2015 even though I'm not sure what I did different.

Why is the high score lower than your 1p score?  Is that a glitch or something?

That happens when you beat the game instead of getting a game over. It doesn't update the high score for the last level. 

Beat me to it. For whatever reason, it shows the correct score when you clear level 30, but it doesn't add it to the high score on the title screen.

I've noticed that it's practically impossible to clear stage 3 without missiles.

Practically?  Man, I made a point to not do it, and also to make sure it wasn't possible to point scum Round 3 by never beating it on purpose for a massive score, and I have firmly concluded that both had negative results.   First, playing that level for like half an hour straight only got me like 20k points, which is trivial for the time it takes, and second, at no point was I even at risk of beating the level by accident when avoiding missiles.  So, for me,  it's not "practically;" it is literally impossible to beat Round 3 without missiles...

How are people so good at this game? It's hard as shit. I've only reached stage 4 and i usually don't even make it that far.

 

That's how I feel about all the genres I suck at, when I see other people's ridiculous scores...  like how the fuck are some people so good at Marble Madness, for example?!?  😉

I guess we're all just wired a little bit differently...

It might also be possible with triple ball.

If you've never played it before it's quite difficult to start.  I thought so even though I grew up playing a lot of "Powerball" and "Krackout."  Stick with it and you'll flesh out the subtleties.

Level 3 requires missiles or multiball; it's probably possible to clear with big ball but unlikely.  

Once beating the game is achieved it would seem that 1st place comes down to whoever has the patience and perhaps the caffeine to spend hours on a level like 3.

That would be assuming more than one person beats it; last time only two people beat it, one of which is the only man to beat it so far this year...

      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. You can't name your character NES in order to start with $5000 before race 1. Take your picture at the highscore screen The player with the highest amount of points win Genre: Racing Pedal to the metal, ladies and gentlemen.

      The contest ends Sunday, 10/24/21 at midnight Brasilia time. 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

Once you reach the boss door, you have to go in. Highest score wins Participation: 5,000 points Genre: Arcade

      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
      The contest ends Sunday, 10/10/21 at midnight Brasilia time. 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

      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!
      The contest ends Sunday, 09/26/21 at midnight Brasilia time. 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
