  1. Tournament dates: July22-24 2022! Hey Sages, It's been a bit since we had any kind of event on VGS, so why not kick it off with a bang! We have been chatting with the creator of Super Tilt Bro. and the publisher @Broke Studio about a way to promote his game and tie it into something we could collaborate on! Lo and behold, a tournament for the ages! What is this and why should I care? What this is: We at VGS care about the community, and sometimes that means giving back and collaborating with developers. By that we mean, we care about growing our community and supporting others! We are looking to get the word out about this game as it shows some very nice potential to be the next Smash bros.......ok maybe not, but its cool that you can play a nes fighter online right? Why you should care: Prizes of course! Prizes to be offered: We have a plethora of prizes being offered! @Broke Studio has offered up a CIB copy of Super Tilt Bro. with a gold shell to add to the prize pool for the top 3. Need this for your homebrew collection? Then you better be top 3, and first to choose the winning prize!!!! If not there will be a run of this game, so don't worry if you aren't that great! @RogerBidon will be offering a set of 3 plushies of the 3 main characters! Look at these bad boys! More pics from Roger if they so choose, i hear they had a photo shoot! The sage: First off, we will be offering an equivalent prize of Steam card/Xbox card/Playstation card/Nintendo card of $50 for the top 3 prize pool. That should round off the prize pool for the top 3 prizes. Second, whatever we don't do there, we are going to be buying Nintendo/Xbox/Playstation cards for raffle for ALL participants to be included in! Rules: You must be a member of VGS to participate! Signups will be going from the time of posting until July 9 2022 at 10:00 PM EST! This will be a bracket tournament with random seeding! We do not have the means to seed everyone properly, so rng be your friend! To signup you must reply in this post. When we have all the participants signed up, we will get the brackets setup.(I will link a spreadsheet with participants listed so make sure you are on it. If not pm me!) It will be a best of 3 matches until the top 3. When the top 3 are up, it will be a best of 5 matches to determine winners. After signups are done, you will get assinged a match and will need to pm me available times that you are willing to be around to participate! This is worldwide, so we are trying to accomodate as best as possible. First Place will get first choice of top 3 prizes, second place, second choice and third will get remaining prize. So, if you don't wanna leave it to chance, GITGUD <--link. Hopefully you all will have a good time with this and enjoy it while we grow our community. Also, forgot to mention, we look to find the SAGE in the final release of the game with sprite animations drawn by none other than @CasualCart! So with that, get to practicing scrubs! Download here: https://sgadrat.itch.io/super-tilt-bro There is also a way to join the STB discord on the link above!
  2. Hello and welcome! @guillavoie and I have the honour to present the 2021 VGS NES Tournament, which picks the top 16 players of the season to play among themselves to decide the 2021 VGS NES Tournament Champion. @Dr. Morbis was already crowned the 2021 VGS NES Weekly Contest Champion and will have the chance to add another title to his collection should he choses to play in the tournament.

Expect some nastiness in game selection for top 8 and for the grand finals.
  3. Hello and welcome to our second round of TOURNAMENT ACTION, ladies and gentlemen! Out of our 15 players, 10 heroes survived the first round. Here they are: @Gaia Gensouki @Richardhead @bertsampson @Tablew/chairs@NESfiend@0xDEAFC0DE@8bitdontquit@mbd39@Jeevan@ninjistar Out of those 10, only 5 will make through a BRUTAL ROUND OF GYRUSS! Here's the rules they have to abide to during this week: Choose whichever controls you want Progress + highest score will determine the winner The highest score is capped at 1,200,000 points at the end of the first loop. If you reach 1,200,000 points before beating the end boss, you must stop your run and take your picture. In case of one or more players score exactly 1,200,000 points at the end of the first loop, the tie break will be determined by their overall Shooter genre position through the 2020 VGS Weekly contest. If you beat the game and has more than 1,200,000 points, your score will be disqualified. If you reach past 1,200,000 before beating the game, your score counts as 1,199,950 for the stage where you broke the 1,200,000 points mark. Pause the game and take your picture in such case. If you game over, state the stage you died when reporting the score at so that progress can be determined. No looping of the game allowed. If you beat the game, you must take your picture when the game loops back to stage 1. Anyone suspected of playing on a second loop or beyond will have their score disqualified. Good luck to those 10 brave warriors. They need it. The contest ends Sunday, 12/06/20 at 11 PM VGS 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.

  7. Edit 12/18/2019: Holy crap I actually placed in the top 999 for the Tetris 99 Maximus 10 cup!!!! Just saw the 999 points in my Nintendo rewards account today!!! The points showed up in my account 1 day after the tournament. Any of you place?? The 10th Tetris 99 Maximus cup ended 12/17/2019 at 2am EST. It was team battles this time instead of the usual single player mode. Points were awarded as followed for 1st-4th place: 50, 25, 5, 1. The top 999 players in this tournament will get 999 gold coins for the eShop. How'd you all do? I finished with 2,836 points. Really hoping that was enough but I was reading at least 6 people on Reddit had gotten over 3000, so I'm not super confident I got it. I was NOT a fan of how they awarded points. They should've given bonus point for the people who survived into the top 25 spots to deter people from just farming points and not actually playing a full match. If you got out in 10 seconds and your team won, you still got 50pts, but those people who carried the team also only got 50pts. I read so many instances where people didn't even play. They'd just let the game go while watching TV and farming their points.
  8. Ladies, gentlemen, I hope you are all READY FOR HOT TWO WHEELERS action! This week the MIGHTY TWELVE will tackle Excite Bike to prove who is the fastest and the best of the lot. The best get the crown, the rest eats dirty. Here's the rules for this exciting week: Play on Selection B Play all 6 races in a row (this includes the track 1 qualifying run) Take a picture at the podium screen for each race. Make sure you pause the game right after the finish line to be ready to take your pic at the podium screen! Also, power off the NES between runs to reset the best time of all tracks! If you finish 4th or higher at a race which prevents you to complete all 6 races, add 20 minutes for each of the remaining races to your total time You have a short time to take your picture at the podium screen. It is a good idea to record it then capture a screen from the video footage Lowest time wins May the fastest racer win! The contest ends Sunday, 11/24/19 at 11 PM VGS 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.
