  2. Ladies and gentlemen, we are BACK with the last round of games of our beloved VGS NES Weekly Contest!

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.

  7. I just finished up survivor and started poking around in the weekly competition threads and noticed there are a lot of contests we aren't doing here. So that got me wondering what else people want to see and would participate in. I have some ideas which I'll share below, and would love to get thoughts on. Would anyone be interested in weekly competitions for more current gen games? Or a hybrid type competition where one week it's an NES game, another an N64 game, another a DS game, and so on? What about doing non high score games? Like Mario kart for example. Pick one track and make everyone race with the same character and kart, etc. Fastest time wins. What about a weekly competition with just a focus on speed running games? Fastest time to beat star fox 64, fastest time to beat smb3, etc. What about mobile or PC games? Chess tournament, Catan tournament, minesweeper, hearts, liars dice, flappy bird, whatever. There are tons and tons of other games out there. People have different gaming skill sets. High score games often reflect who has the most free time to dedicate to a game, as opposed to who might truly be the best gamer.
  8. Hello and welcome to the BRAWL AREA, brothers and sisters! Get your fists ready for it is time for Dragon... Double the dragons even! Punch your way into the scoreboard following the rules below, martial artists: Play as far into your last life as possible. Do not allow yourself to get a Game Over. If you get a Game Over, your score will not count. Get the highest score possible. If you beat the game, take your picture on the end screen where Billy rescues Marian (you can pause the game here). Any sort of point glitches in the game that can allow you to rack up points are forbidden. These include, but are not limited to, the weapon point glitch in Level 2 and exiting and re-entering areas (these include the Pink Cave and Blue Cave). It is also forbidden to exit and re-enter areas to restore your health. Anyone suspected of using any of these tactics or glitches will have their score disqualified. Point racking will be okay for this contest since there is a timer in the game. Highest score wins. Participation: 10,000 GENRE: Beat 'Em Up There are some special point bonuses that will be applied if a master fighter beats the game: If you beat the game on your last life (your life meter says P-0), you get no bonus. If you beat the game and have one extra life remaining (your life meter says P-1), add 10,000 points to your score. If you beat the game and have all your lives remaining (no-deathing the game) (your life meter says P-2), add 20,000 points to your score. The contest ends Sunday, 08/01/21 at 11 PM VGS time.

  13. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome for another week of our NES weekly contest! This week there will be MUCH shooting happening as our players tackle Silk Worm! A shooter game which is most complex to come up with working rules for... But nonetheless, here there are: 1 life only Play Heli or Jeep, your choice. If you die, pause the game at the start of your new life and take your picture. Since the game doesn't show your score and lives during the boss phase, pause and take your picture before the boss of the wave to post in case you die to the boss. Play till you get to wave 8 boss. Pause the game right before you get to the wave 8 boss to get your final score. I strongly suggest that you all watch playthrough of this game to know when the boss of the wave is about to come up. Point pressing at the bosses is not allowed. Highest score win Genre: Shooter The game doesn't seem to have a highscore screen, so unfortunately, those are the rules we have to run with.

As Guil and I start to plan the upcoming 2021 season of the beloved Weekly Contest, we deemed it wise to ask you all, the players, for suggestions of NES and Famicom games you believe to be worthy of being playing during our 2021 season! So spill the guts. Let us know what games you would love to see this year and we will thoroughly consider them!

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.

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.
