mitchcumstein1: I swear to Christ...if you make me go underwater and defuse bombs, I'll absolutely lose my shiat.


One of the weirdest moments of my life- I'd just gotten TMNT for NES, and like everyone else, was hung up as fark on that underwater bomb level. It got to be out of control- I was about 8 years old, and frustrated as all hell, and my parents were bugging me about bedtime. I told them I just HAD to finish this level.... in uncharacteristic fashion, my mom and dad relented, stayed in the room, watching me play and trying to give helpful advice for more than a couple hours. After what was probably the dozenth time I'd made it that far, my mother (a Mormon ladies group director and cake decorator, who as far as I know had never played a video game outside Pac-Man in an arcade) picked up the controller, and nailed the bomb level on her first go. I don't know how the fark she did it. All I can assume is that she was watching me play VERY closely.

To this day, it was the most miraculous thing I've ever witnessed, and my mom is still rightfully coasting on that cred. I wish she didn't hate video games- I think she's some sort of savant.

Shame about your mom not liking video games.

My mom was like that too at first. Until one day I was playing Bubble Bobble and needed a partner cause my sister had something to do after school. My mom started playing with me and was hooked on it. Some of my best memories were of her, my sister, and myself playing video games.

/CSB

So my cousin had Space Invaders for the Atari 2600. He and I would switch off to see who could get the highest score. My dad was watching and wanted to play.

My cousin, was pretty damn good, kept beating him soundly. I kept beating him soundly. So after we went to bed, my father stayed up ALL NIGHT, to beat his score. When we came down in the morning, he proudly showed how he beat my 10 year old cousins high score.

He didn't understand why the entire family just looked at him like he was nuts.

That made me remember the time I had my mom, dad, and grandparents in my room one night playing Night Driver (of all things) for the 2600. My granddad was a WWII vet who really didn't think too much of any technology past the tv remote and was pretty jaded with life, was roaring with laughter whenever he hit the barriers. One of the few good memories I have.

No doubt. Try to throw a 360 controller like we would throw the NES controllers back in the day, and we'd be buying new controllers every week. Those things were sturdy. I have a vast collection of NES games and controllers and nearly every one of them still works today 20-25 years later.

I had bad luck with my parents and video games. My dad bought me a 2600 for Christmas around 1990. I had the system for 3 months and I got Pac-Man for my birthday. As soon as my mom discovered Pac-Man, and later Ms. Pac-Man, the Atari disappeared from the den and went into the family room where all the grownups hang out.

Then we got a NES a couple years later. I told my mom I wanted Tetris, and she ended up buying me Dr. Mario. About a month later the NES disappeared into the living room again and to this day my mom still plays Dr. Mario. When the NES finally died I put a ROM on her computer and hacked an NES controller to use USB for her because she couldn't get used to using the keyboard.

I did eventually get my own NES from a neighbor who told us "I need to get rid of this thing. I haven't slept in 3 farking days trying to get that little Italian bastard over that farking hole in the ground!"

CSB:

I finished the bombs in the sewers level the first time. After that, it took years until I could finish it again. I guess I just had one of those beautiful mind moments. My cousin had tried it 10 times, and handed the controller to me. So the advantage I had was where the bombs were.

Since we are having a horrible thunderstorm rolling in today, and working at the office will probably suck, I might just load up NESTRON and play some Ninja turtles today.

And hell yeah, I read about the TMNT game on Iheartchaos the other day, and I have to say, I'm all for it. Especially if Usagi Yojimbo is DLC or preorder content, count me in.

I enjoyed Arkham City, the combat could be misconstrued as button mashing - and you can easily beat the game that way - but if you actually learn the combos and counter effectively there is a fluidity to the combat that you don't get from button mashing. I found it very enjoyable to drop into a crowd of 15 thugs, stand there like Batman would - waiting for the thugs to make their move and then completely dismantling them.

My two biggest gripes with the game are:

1) Beating the story (and side missions) gives you roughly a 50% complete rating. I'm sorry Riddler trophies do not constitute 50% of the gameplay.
2) The gun jammer gadget - how do you electronically jam a machine gun?

Yeah, the original comic was very good, and was never meant to be a kid friendly book. But I learned about the Usagi Yojimbo comics by watching the cartoon, that I thank them for. It's a great series.

I've got the main book and a couple of the sourcebooks (Transdimensional and Hollywood) in print, and a couple of the others on PDF. Wish someone would update/convert the rules so it would work with a more modern system like Savage Worlds or D20. (Always found the original a bit confusing, maybe its just me).

Yeah, I actually took time to learn the combos, its nice to go back into the courthouse where there are like 10 of those guys in there, get up on the wire and then dive bomb them, use the shock to knock them all down, and the get up a combo where you can do the multi-batarang takedown, and finish up. Also, dismantling weapons is fun as well (grabbing a lead pipe from the guy and bending it was great).

If you treat it like a button masher, then yes, it is a button masher, but IMO the combos are complex and fun to use if you can get the timing down.

I did all the "riddles" except for the damn challenges (beat up so many guys, use three different gadgets in combot, glide so many meters). I started to, but I lost interest, which sucks because it is the last stuff I have to do to get 100% (and I went back to Skyrim)

I picked up most of the trophies and rescued all but one of the riddler's hostages, I think I'll finish that up and call the game done.
The catwomen trophies are superfluous and anything else will only add to my completion percentage. I just want to see how the Riddler story arc is resolved.

Yeah, it's a cliche but they really don't make them like they used to. My NES still works, although I have to fight with it a little bit because of the spring loading thing. My SNES still works like a charm though, and I'm willing to bet my N64 would too. Yet I doubt in 20 years many of the current consoles will still be working. Hell, my PS2 already crapped out on me a couple of years ago.

If you quit after a half hour, then that's why you think it's all button mashing. Later in the game, they send sets of enemies after you that are specifically designed to disrupt button mashing. If you haven't mastered the combos and timing, they'll cut you down.

quiotu: /Seriously, no one caught that yet?


It was mentioned in the article. First sentence.

Also, count me in the crowd less than impressed with the Arkham games- all I heard about the first one was how great it was and how I had to play it- been busy with Skyrim and life, so didn't have time until recently, or room for another game- so I grabbed the GotY edition. Played it for about 90 min- after the "wow, it's so cool that I'm Batman, voiced by Conroy!" excitement/novelty wore off, all I could think was "Hm. So this game is: run down hallway to large room, beat up dudes. Repeat." Thought it may be an oversaturation thing and I shouldn't hammer away at it; also considered that since I'd been playing so many sandbox type games of late, I felt confined by the levels- went out and got Saint Row 3; it hasn't been outside my console since I put it there.

I'm sure I'll get back to it, and maybe I'd like Arkham City better- but it just didn't "grab" me the way other games (Skyrim, SR3, etc) have recently.
