i got zero trust i make it out of the first round. pick a whaaaamicom puzzle game against me and im dead.

That's what will probably happen to me since I can't finish in the top 8 so I can pick the game. I don't really know much about Famicom games anyway so it probably wouldn't matter.

im excited to play galaga. im not very good. i think 200-300k is my best.

I wouldn't worry too much about performing well in Galaga, little feller, it looks like there's already a new shooter champ ridin' into town, and I've got a feelin' he's gonna be here for a while........  😉

Enjoy your past glory while you can... they are some beautiful memories! 😛

(Maybe next year 😛😛 )

😄 🎶glory days🎶 ive won it twice and tied another. pretty good memories indeed 😊

2nd, 4th and 4th 😕 ugly stat line for you. 

i actually won one of the shooter weeks. and have finished higher than you both times i participated. 

maybe i can get good at galaga and make it interesting. careful your normal tact of less than full effort might be a bad idea 😁

My tactic isn't "less than full effort," it's "do enough to git'r dun."  ....Kind of like how I dealt with last week to win the arcade category.  But just have a little patience; I've gotta deal with winning the Action genre next week before I can get down to business with you in the Shooter genre a few weeks down the road...

I don't know how you were able to resist the fun of playing all 30 levels.

Did you play with the helicopter or the jeep? It's better with the jeep.

I think it may be easier with the jeep, but I played heli cause its more fun. Shooter fan like skinny will want to go to heli for sure

I like the mix of platforming and shooting with the jeep. It has kind of a Moon Patrol feel.

Are you getting another run in? I can't imagine you not getting the win this week.

I was deathless all the way to the tank last night and then blew it, lol. Yeah I'm gonna keep trying.

This is a fun game but there are so many cheap instant death opportunities as well as cheap hits from enemies (and you don't get much health). Makes it tough to conserve lives.

That's the same problem I had. I lost two lives at the end that were stupid or my score would have been 10k points higher. I doubt that I'll get to play any over the weekend, but I probably could get a better run in with more time.

      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!
