99,999,999

This is one of my favorite Pinball games, so I thought I'd join in this week.  This was easily my best game of Pin Bot ever.  For the first time, I maxed out the score and looped the stages in the same game (I've accomplished these in separate games before, but never in the same game).

Why the shit is there not a pause button!?! There are no shortage of buttons available and even playing the game badly takes up a long time without breaks. Pinball purist sons a bitches. 

Aside from that gripe, this is a really fun change of pace. A fun game to zone out with 

The B button on controller 2 pauses.

You wanna antagonize me?  Well antagonize me!  Get in the ring!

edited to make PG for all the youngsters.

Yeah, I do. It entertains the fans, so I'm here for it. We all know you suck, but you don't need to be this enthusiastic about it. It's not like this weeks contest is High Speed. You could probably crush everyone with your experience. 😉

I'm not sure what you mean by that.  Am I good at High Speed?  I forget.

Nah. Just mediocre like everything else. It's sad really. Criminally bad.

I'm no criminal...well, just the once...or was it twice.  Anyway, in comes the FNG @Nicies to make me wanna try again.  I can't let some dude's brother that's not his brother or whatever craziness, beat me.  You @Bearcat-Doug don't matter.  I'd be fine losing to you now so you actually make the tournament.

Lol I dont know how much more pinbot Nicies has in him. He has spent the last two days at work bitching about the game. Getting him addicted to the contests was a success. Selling him on the greatness of 8-bit gaming is still a work in progress.

      Welcome to THE VERY LAST weekly contest game for this season!
      And what a fitting finale right before our most expected tournament!

      Without further ado, here's the SPOOKY rules for this not at all spooky game:
      Play until Game Over You must power up your NES before each of your run to reset the drop pattern correctly. You may collect each 1-up only once.  In the second loop of the game, you will be allowed to collect each 1-up one time as well. Looping from stage 6 to stage 5 by not having the shield is forbidden Highest score wins Participation: 5,000 GENRE: Action The tournament details will be made public during the course of the next two weeks. Players, be prepared!

      It is time to GET SPOOKY! October is upon us. SPOOOOKYYYY!
       
      So to start this scary season, nothing better than an horrific game, Monster In My Pocket!
      Since our players are scared shirtless, here's the rules already:
      1 life only 1 player only Choose whichever character you want Stage progress followed by high score is what determines your placing. If you make to the final boss, take your picture at the start of the fight. Your run ends there. Max score is 9,500. If you pass over it, your score is 9,490 and your run ends there. In case of 9,490 points ties, progress will determine who wins. If you hit exactly 9,500, you may proceed till the final boss without killing anything else... if you can. Any score picture taken at the boss screen takes precedence over 9,500+ points scores. Reaching the boss is a sure way to secure a top 8 spot. If you make to the final boss with 9,500, you earn the 1st place for this week. Several people can tie for 1st this week. Participation: 500 The contest ends Sunday, 10/11/20 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.
