i still have the cart. dang. i should have played that week. morbius wouldnt be singing mr blue bird right now if i had!

You said the regular season stuff was meaningless so what do you care?!?聽 Fuck the nine solid months of fun NES competition; all that matters is the arbitrary titles chosen for that little two week tourney after the season's over, remember... 馃槖

You're even purposely not putting up scores for multiple weeks to try and drop in the rankings for a little one-off competition at the end... 馃槙

I absolutely do not understand your viewpoint on this weekly NES competition, but hey, to each his own, I guess.聽 As long as you're having fun.......聽聽聽 馃槵

I'll just be over here having fun week in and week out posting scores and winning the overall season and almost half the genres while you hold out for that long-shot "fakicom" tourney victory in December.....聽 馃槣

Man, if I had a nickle for every time you posted in the last 8 months that the regular season was pointless......

the regular season is pointless though.

you ask me what do i care. well, i care about the shooter title. i still dont care about regular season though.

a genre title is more meaningful and the shooter title is the most meaningful behind tourney champ

With the current playoff format, the regular season standings are no longer pointless, even for curmudgeons like you.

You say the shooter title is meaningful to you but you can't even be arsed to play all four games?聽 I don't judge based on what people say, but on what they do... 馃槈

And think about this: I'm going to win your coveted shooter title without ever winning a game in the category.聽 Like you already mentioned, I'll be 2nd, 4th, 4th, and whatever I get in Galaga (I need 5th or better for a guaranteed victory), and yet the genre titles are somehow more meaningful than the regular season as a whole?!?聽 Your logic makes no sense to me: both titles follow the exact same rules.聽 You're going to respect me as the "Shooter Champ" for coming in 2nd, 4th, 4th, and 5th?聽 WTF is that?

You can pick and choose what's more meaningful to you, and that's fine, but think about this: coming in first in shooters requires averaging 4th four times - coming in first in the regular season requires averaging a high placing all year.聽 Compared to that, your coveted Shooter title doesn't mean shit!!!!!!! 馃槢

@Dr. Morbis聽you only have a chance at wining the shoter crown with 2nd, 4th, 4th and 5th because didnt play silk worm and bert didnt play gradius 2.聽so ill respect you if you win it? yes, but its not a pretty win at all.

its not that i cant be "arsed" to play. i got life stuff too. and sometimes playing a nintendo game couldnt be further down the list of stuff that needs to get done 馃檪plus im not a natural, i gotta grind on a game im not familiar with. i gone toe to toe with wampson on alpha mission before and gradius 2 came easier because i am familiar with the first game.

morphius. your really good at playing nintender tapes 馃挭馃徎

just not as good as me!!!! hahaaaaaa!!!

overall leader is a paper champ! shooter crown rules all!!!!!

As a former regular season champion, I definitely think maintaining that level of consistency over a full season is a far more impressive accomplishment than winning a three week tournament where luck of the draw is a major benefit.

@Dr. Morbis聽ya c'mon im dense but i guess it takes a little skill (mostly longevity) to achive a first place overall.聽

Look at your post count: if you spent one tenth the time playing that you spend posting on VGS, we wouldn't be having this conversation... 馃槈

I posted my real score already. Thought I might have had an early week win too. Well played Doug.

I'd be shocked if @mbd39聽doesn't post another score. You actually have a better score than me, I just had one more extra life.

I'm trying but I can't get a good run going without fucking up.

I don't like how certain enemies will randomly throw jump kicks while you're attacking them with no seeming way to avoid it. Like those knife guys in the first cave in level 3. It just seems down to luck. Hope to get a good pattern where they don't kick. It wouldn't be so bad if you got more health but health is so damn limited in this game. That enemies will randomly be aggressive or not is annoying and results in cheap deaths.

The lasers are a problem spot for me as well. I hate them. And then the tank and the final boss. There is a strat where you聽 kick the final boss as soon as he lands from a jump but I haven't got the timing down. You can also kick him as he's running toward you but sometimes he'll get in an attack first and do a lot of damage.

I had two cheap deaths at the end of my run. I might be able do a little better if I had time, but I couldn't guarantee it.

      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.
