No, I've never played F-1 race.

As for Super Sprint, me and overhead/isometric NES racers just don't get along. I was also horrible at RC Pro Am and Danny Sullivan's Indy Heat. But I might give Super Sprint some more tries this week.

 


You could pretend you’re playing Marble Madness, which is kind of like an isometric racer.  Might ease you up a bit.  I get it though, these ones are always competitive and you can’t exactly squeak in with some mediocre score, I like these kind of games kinda but I never fare well for that reason. Still, Super Sprint seems to be easier on the player than RC Pro Am, RC’s programming just feels so so cruel lol.  (The bad flip side of this though, is that it’s also easy on everyone else)

Okay, I've officially topped Bart Simpson's, er, Bert Sampson's score, which is always goal number one since he comes in guns a-blazin' every week and puts up a good score before the rest of us have even put our pants on, and I think I'm done now until someone gives me a reason to try harder.  I missed exactly 10 wrenches, so I left 15,000 points on the table...

Man, you just missed it. We played that game toward the end of last year. And it was a ball. I want to say 3 people beat it. I think I had 4th behind them getting to like the second to last race. Whatever the last one with the race cars is. Such a great game, but def hard as shit. You can go into the event archives and find the scoreboard if you want to play and see how you would have compared to the field here

I'd probably suck at it but it's just a fun game to play.

Also, @docile tapeworm, you cant protest the racing games unless you play them. Then we will hear your gripes and dismiss them appropriately. You can't win if you dont play, and you cant get the racing category renamed "Nascar" without winning. 

In honor of my alma mater, Michigan State, and the recent name change for the basketball team, if I win the racing category, Ill request that it be renamed "NESfiend presents: THE CIRCUIT"

@NESfiend  curse you for making me play this........

It is fun, but for the life of me I can't figure out why sometimes i barely touch a wall and explode and then other times i run full force nose first into the wall like so:

Frustrated Head GIF

and I don't explode.  😕

Yep. That's pretty much the reason why I only got to level 6. It's kind of like Super Off-Road where the walls sometimes "suck" your vehicle toward them and you keep crashing and fall behind, except in that game the vehicles don't explode.

Two worst situations so far:

1: crashing while under an over pass and not being able to see if I'm stuck on something or which way to turn while the other cars pass me up but not before bobbling me around to make certain I don't figure it out with anything like timeliness.

2: Similar situation where I hit one of those poles that pop up in the road, get stuck; then the other three cars take turns hitting me and actually bobbling me backwards until I hit a wall and explode.

@FireHazard51 ur fuggin' picture broke again, what the actual heck are you doin'?

Might I suggest imgur and copy link address to share your pics?

My pixel phone auto loads them to my google photos account.  I then move photo to public album that all can view.  I don't know why the links keep breaking.... well the spoiler photo I accidently deleted.  Can you not see the other photo as that one I can see still.

      Ahoy hoy, my beloved friends. Long time no see! Life got WAY busier than it should be in the last two weeks here.
      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!

      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.
