Okay, that was not only well done, but freakin' hilarious!

I recognized so many of those games. Major flashbacks. And they're right about the Turtles game - it was freaking hard!

The 8-bit rendition of Don't Stop Me Now was bad ass

Ayn Rand's Cervix: The 8-bit rendition of Don't Stop Me Now was bad ass

Any one who likes retro gaming should love Abobo's Big Adventure

Ah nintendo...did people back then say things like "I don't care of if megaman does have better graphics...those don't make a game good!!! Come back to me when the storyline meets the standards set by Zork!"

(Or something like that.)

I'm impressed at the amount of props they had for that video!
 
2012-10-28 07:21:23 PM
that was pretty farking amusing, watched it all the way through.

Great job picking many of the harder games, even by NES standards, especially Battletoads and that damned tunnel level. I was hoping for Bubble Bobble on there too but alas they can't put all the classics in there.

Agree wholeheartedly!

Good find.

Full song on Youtube, starts a bit slow imo, but I enjoyed it!

I was kind of hoping there'd be 8-bit music too, but this was still pretty great.

Good find and quite amusing.

I don't have a lot of nostalgia for pre-SNES sadly, because all my console experience before PS1 was at friends' houses so I didn't get to play a lot. Link To The Past is still my favorite of the old games though.

Thanks for the link. It brings back a lot of fond gaming memories.

NES, Genesis, and SNES had some outstanding games.

I always set aside Raphael to use for the dam(n!) level. His weapons had the worst reach.

this is still one of my favorite bit tune deconstructs of a song:

A-HA - Take On Me

It's technically NOT 8-bit, think its something closer to 16-bit but its still a great "chip tune" deconstruct of the song 

And the absolute favorite is:

This Eric Johnson cover is dope.

I always thought the NES was shiat. Overpriced games with nowhere near the diversity or originality of what you could find on the C64, Spectrum or CPC at a fraction of the price.

So, minor threadjack... for any of you who play these old school consoles on your modern TVs, do you find any video problems? I have a 65" DLP and have some shaky display issues with Super Nintendo. I've been wanting to get a 2600 and an NES, but not if they're not going to work with the TV.

I don't have any older systems hooked up to my current tv, but I do know my Bro-in-law hooked a 2600 up to his TV with no issues. YMMV.

I've got a 40" Samsung LCD that I bought in 2006 and I've never had any problems playing SNES on it. Never tried any systems older than that.

I bought a new video cable (the multi-out into composite), that fixed all the problems I had with the grainy and shaky picture.

Ah, cool, thanks. I might try running it through my receiver, see if that fixes it. I didn't have it the last time I hooked one up.

I used Raphael only for driving and swimming.

That could have easily worn itself thin early on, but they added plenty of surprises and nice touches to keep it going. The many props and window dressing really made it for me, but the main thing was how into they were. They sold it, and I bought it. Very well done. Good find, subby.

The piano was real, but I think most of the rest of the music was digital. Not sure if 8-bit, though. I probably should know, since I grew up in the 8-bit era, but I don't.

I've always loved it when people do the opposite.

I sold a copy of Duck Hunt to someone who apparently played it on a new big tv, and he said it was awful (the display). I expect he probably had no idea how to convert hookups though.
