Post a screenshot of the retro game you just finished!


I saved the Police Chief, thwarted the terrorists plans and saved San Francisco in Super Runabout: San Francisco Edition on normal.

For my troubles, I received a grainy digitized photo and some rolling credits. :woozy_face:


I still can’t get over the hot dogs they have in this game. Lettuce? The fuck?


Finished Sega Ages Phantasy Star on Switch today in just a little over 15 hours. This is becoming my favorite version of the game. 4x meseta and xp eliminates a lot of the grind. And playing with the FM synth sound was really great, since I always wanted to hear it. Well worth 8 bucks on the eshop.


Goofy things like this is what adds to the charm of playing retro Japanese games ported to the west.

Although it still happens somewhat. You could tell the canceled Scalebound on the XB1 was trying to be tailored to a western audience and the main character came out uber-lame and cringe worthy.


What are you playing these days?

I beat Mega Man on NES (pardon the composite image).


You are hereby pardoned.


Nice! I haven’t beat it since I was a kid either, and want to remedy that soon. Mainly so I can bother @Socksfelloff about it since he has some weird hate on for Zelda 2 for some strange reason… I keep telling him it’s the “Dark Souls” of Zelda games but he still won’t bite.


My weird hate for Zelda 2 soley consists of wanting to play it but I just haven’t got around to it yet LMAO


It really is the Dark Souls of Zelda games. That’s why it’s my favorite.


@BTails thinks every game is like dark souls. I don’t get it


Bonus points if it is also Metroidvania, Roguelike, and/or 8/16-Bit Inspired.


I’m jealous. It’s one of the only Zelda games I haven’t beaten yet.

Was it enjoyable? I gave up on my playthrough last year for some reason. I liked most of it but got stuck at some point and gave up.


It’s the Darksouls Fever. I wish I’d taken a picture when I beat it back in college. Really is an awesome game when you let it stand on its own and don’t worry about the rest of the series.


I really want to play it one of these days. Zelda 1 and 2 are pretty much the only games in the series I haven’t played.

Even if a single game isn’t as good as others in the series I’m still able to enjoy it for what it is. For example CastleVania 2 had alot of great ideas and I enjoyed my time with it but so far it’s easily been my least favorite CastleVania game.

My favorite are the 8 bit games with thousands of frames of animation and modern color pallets. That ain’t 8 bit lol


They are both very much worth playing through. When I got my Analogue NT the first thing I did was fire up The Legend of Zelda and do a complete playthrough.

I actually really love CV 2. Same sot of thing. It has its own thing going and its awesome in its own right. I’ve never understood the mentality of “If it’s not the same as the last one I don’t like it.”


If you have Nintendo Switch Online, you will probably get a chance to play the last boss for the ending in one of those SP versions next month. This month it’s Ninja Gaiden and Ghosts ‘n’ Goblins set up for the last boss.


I beat LoZ 2 in middle school. I remember being the only one of my peers to do so at the time. I remember jumping up in down screaming in excitement at the time. I never replayed it.

Sometimes I wonder if they wanted to make another game but couldn’t come up with a character for it so it became a Zelda game.


Finished VB Wario Land with all the treasures today after missing them when I beat it for the first time last night. The final boss was great!

I actually preferred the ‘bad’ ending if you miss getting all the treasures. You get a coin rank (I was ranked C) and the Beavers messing with Wario was pretty hilarious!

Great game. The variety in level design is good, and its length and scoring emphasis makes it quite replayable. It’s an R&D 1 production through and through, from the high craftsmanship in the pixel art to the inventive boss and level design.

Wario Land 4 is still king, but I like this game’s structure and scoring emphasis a lot. Wario Land 2 and 3 are also excellent but don’t have the replayability of this or 4 due to their move away from action towards exploration and light puzzle solving.

Just finished Tetris with Cardcaptor Sakura Eternal Heart on normal difficulty.

There doesn’t appear to be a hard mode for the main game unless you play the 1V1 Taisen Tetris mode. Which is probably a good thing because Normal was very challenging!

You get 20 minutes to clear all stages, and even having gone back to replay many levels faster to claw back extra time for the last level it was a squeeze: I cleared the final stage with just 17 seconds and left on the clock after dozens of attempts.
