  1. Beep! Beep! Players, get ready to speed up, get some bird seed and avoid a lunatic coyote bearing ACME equipment at Road Runner! The rules for this week are very simple: Play till you lose your first life or till you reach the end of stage 21 If you reach the end of stage 21, pause the game and take your picture before finishing the stage If you roll you score, take a picture before roll over and after roll over Highest score wins Participation: 5,000 Genre: Arcade The contest ends Sunday, 05/29/22 at 11 pm EST. Your user name should be written or typed on a piece of paper and be in the picture for your score to be valid. For speed runs that require video, that is not required. 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.
  2. Ladies and gentleman, welcome for a week full of fast paced arcade action! It is time for us all to tackle on an absolute CLASSIC! Lode Runner! The rules for this week are as follow: Play 1 player mode Play till the round start screen says "LEFT 1" Take your picture at the start of the stage, when it says "LEFT 1". You don't have a lot of time to do it, so be quick. If you reach stage 30, take your picture at the start of stage 31 Highest progress with lowest score wins. Participation: 600 points The game only awards you points when you beat a stage, so you will need to reach at least stage 2 to get a valid score Genre: Action The contest ends Sunday, 05/22/22 at 11 pm EST. Your user name should be written or typed on a piece of paper and be in the picture for your score to be valid. For speed runs that require video, that is not required. 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.

  3. Welcome to the 2022 VideoGameSage NES Weekly Contests! Weekly Contest Moderators @BeaIank @guillavoie GENERAL CONTEST RULES Please read these rules carefully before you submit a score. Failure to comply with the rules may result in your score being disqualified. If you're new to the contests, please take a few minutes to read over the rules to make sure you submit your scores correctly. Posting Scores - In order to submit a score for the contest, take a picture of your score with your VGS user name written or typed on a piece of paper, which must be present in the picture. Your VGS user name MUST be in the picture or the score will be invalid and not accepted or considered. - 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 the contest organizers. - Old scores from past contests are not acceptable as submissions. You must play the game during the week it has been selected for the contests. Anyone suspected as passing off an old score as a new one will have their score disqualified and asked to resubmit a new one. - When posting a new score, please begin your post by typing out your score. Larger font (18pt) is preferred. - If you are posting an updated score, please edit your initial post with the new photo and score. You can still create a separate new post as a bump to notify you edited your score if desired. Editing your original post makes it much easier for the contest organizers to tally up the scores at the end of the week and also ensures that we don't make a mistake and credit you for the wrong score. - For speed runs contests, we will be requiring video to show your progress time, baring cases were a speed run may take over 1 hour of recording time. Systems - NTSC systems will be the only consoles allowed for the contests. PAL systems and games will not be allowed. There are some PAL games that are optimized to run at the same speed and difficulty as NTSC games. These will be allowed for use in the contests, but you MUST contact contest organizers first before using such a game so that we can investigate it. Failure to contact us first could result in your score being disqualified. Emulators - Emulators ARE allowed to be used in the weekly contests. However, anything that may give a player an advantage with an emulator over playing on the system is NOT allowed. This includes, but is not limited to, save states, Game Genie codes, altered ROMS, and turbo controls. It is preferred if everyone plays on a console. - There may be some weeks where emulator use will not be allowed. If we choose not to use emulators for a specific week, it will be noted in the rules. This means NO emulators can be used whatsoever and the game MUST be played on a console. If we play a game and emulators are forbidden and someone still submits a score using an emulator, the score will be ignored.. PowerPak - A PowerPak IS allowed to be used in the competition with the same regulations as with emulators. You may not use save states, Game Genies codes, altered ROMs or anything else that would give you an advantage over playing with the regular cartridge. Points and Leaderboards - Each week the top 8 players who submitted scores will earn points as follows: 1st - 20 points 2nd - 16 points 3rd - 13 points 4th - 10 points 5th - 8 points 6th - 6 points 7th - 5 points 8th - 4 points 9th - 3 points 10th - 2 points Participation - 1 - Anyone who finishes below 10th place will earn 1 participation point. - There will only be 1 regular leaderboard throughout the year, which will lead right up to the tournament. The leaderboard style will be the same as 2017 and all points on the leaderboard will be cumulative. - There will still be genre leaderboards for 2022. The genre for the 2022 contest will be: Action Arcade Beat 'Em Up Puzzle Shooter/Shoot 'Em Up Sports - All games played in the 2022 contests will be reflective of those genres. The genre leaderboards will use the same point system as the regular leaderboard, and whoever finishes atop each leaderboard prior to the start of the year-end tournament will win that genre and will be rewarded with a VGS Charms. - The genre leaderboards are just for fun and will not impact anyone's standing in the tournaments. So, if you feel you excel at Beat 'Em Ups, go for the Beat 'Em Up Charms. Participation Score - There may be instances where the rules of a game will require you to attain a minimum number of points in order to earn participation points for that week. For example, if we play Double Dragon, you may be required to score at least 50,000 to earn participation points toward the leaderboard. Participation scores will be noted in the rules if they will be used for a specific week. In the event we set a participation score, any scores submitted that do not meet the minimum amount of points will be ignored. Controllers - Turbo Controllers are NOT allowed to be used. Neither are any controllers that give you any advantage over regular controllers, such as slow motion or turbo ability. - If anyone is suspected of using turbo functions, slow motion abilities, etc from a controller, your score will be disqualified and you will be banned from further competition. Cheating - Cheating will NOT be tolerated in any form. This contest is based on trust and honor. Anyone found cheating will be banned from further competition. - The use of point glitches to intentionally increase (or in the case of a low score contest, decrease) your score are frowned upon and not allowed in the contests. If a point glitch is discovered that can create an unfair advantage, the rules for the game will be altered to ban the glitch. Anyone suspected of using point glitches will have their score disqualified. - If there is suspicion of a participant cheating, the contest moderators will review the case and the member may be asked to present further evidence of their score. Further evidence includes, but is not limited to, video recordings and/or extra pictures. - If you suspect another participant of cheating, do NOT call them out in the contest threads. Please send a PM to the contest organizers and we will review the score. Posting accusations in the contest threads creates unnecessary drama and stress for all involved and will NOT be tolerated. Sportsmanship and Overall Conduct - Please be a good sport while playing in the weekly contests. While smack talk and the occasional vent are fine, please do not get carried away with it. This includes, but is not limited to, name calling, excessive venting/complaining/whining, excessive profanity, cocky attitudes, arguing with contest moderators, accusations of cheating, cluttering threads with nonsense posts, etc. Participants who cannot be good sports will receive a warning from me. If your overall conduct is still considered to be in poor taste, you will be banned from the contests. - Disrupting of the weekly contests in any way will NOT be tolerated. This includes, but is not limited to, trolling, name calling, unauthorized prize giveaways, unnecessary drama, etc. Anyone who disrupts the weekly contests in any form will be reported to a site moderator. Tournament - There will be one tournament played this year and that will be hosted in a matter of weeks after the end of the regular season. - The number of competitors will be based on how many people participate and will be announced prior to the start of the tournament. - Anyone who earns a spot in the tournament will receive a PM asking for them to confirm their tournament spot prior to the start of the competition. Those who can't or are unwilling to participate will have their spot forfeited to the next available person. RANDOM PRIZES - Random prizes will be given out throughout the year whenever we have a prize to offer. These will be announced at random with no particular dates set in stone. More than likely, anyone who participates in a particular contest will entered into a drawing for a chance to win a prize. These prizes will be video game related in some way. - To make it fair for everyone who plays in the contests, you can only win one random prize for the year. - If anyone is interested in donating prizes to the weekly contests, please contact contest organizers first so arrangements can be made. Do not feel compelled to have to donate to the weekly contests, but if you really want to, feel free to do it. - If anyone wants to give away a prize on their own time for a particular contest, you must contact the contest organizers first to get authorization to do so. Any unauthorized giveaways will NOT be allowed. - In the event you win a prize, whether it be a random drawing or a tournament prize, we will send you a PM requesting your mailing address. When giving your mailing address, please give your full name (first and last name) and not just your first name or VGS user name. We want to ensure you receive your prize quickly and safely. .Once your package leaves our hands and is submitted to the post office, we will be not responsible for any lost, late, misdirected, mutilated, or returned packages. If you are afraid something may happen to your prize, please request insurance. UPCOMING GAMES FOR 2022 NOTE: This list may be revised with or without notice.

The rules for this week are as follow: 1 life only You must buy the wanted poster from the vendor You have up to three loops of the current stage to acquire the money needed to buy the wanted poster (and to point press!)

As long as you buy the wanted poster before the 3rd appearing of the vendor, your run is valid... unless you don't buy the poster at the 3rd vendor. Your score doesn't show during the boss fight, so I suggest you to pause the game before it and take a picture of your score should you die during the boss fight.

  23. 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.
  24. Hello and welcome to the BRAWL AREA, brothers and sisters! Get your fists ready for it is time for Dragon... Double the dragons even!

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.
