Nana's Vibrator: 1.  This is a repeat from over a week ago
2.  facisto: For the rest of my life I'll never forget that code.

I was able to take that Tyson punk out in the first round.  That's what we did back then.  We played the same game 1000+ times and tried to get a faster time (or higher score, depending on the game).

Yep, pretty much.  With Super Mario I used to play it 1-1 > 1-4 , 2-1 > 2-4 all the way through 8-4 w/o any of the warps.  If i died once I would reset the game and start over.  I would also time myself on how fast I could do it.

I remember being at a friends house few years back and some of the boys around 11-12ish dug a nintendo out of a closet and were trying to get it working.  They had it all hooked up properly but when they put in the game it just wouldnt load.  I state "I will show you how this thing works".  Walked over to it.  Open the front lid.  Blew in it a few times.  Slid the game into it at "just the right spot" and pushed down to get the slight grinding sound.  Smacked the right side a few times and bam first start it loaded right up.

God I miss that old console :)

Saborlas: Getting his ass kicked by GLASS JOE. That is SAD.

/Glass Joe is a pun on Glass Jaw
//as in, an EASY boxing opponent
///Mikey got his ass kicked by the TUTORIAL opponent

Well granted he was trying to use the NES controller like a Wii controller at first, so methinks 30 year old gaming technology isn't in his skill set.

jaggspb: facisto: ltdanman44: up up down down left right left right b a start

Mike Tyson's Punch Out had a numerical based code system so the konami code wouldn't do a damn thing.

couldn't you hit select quickly between rounds one time per match and your health would recover almost fully or am I thinking of another game?

No, you're right. That's pretty much the only useful thing that Doc Louis ever did.

Well, to be fair, it's not like he could magically figure out on his first try, without anyone explaining the basics of the game to him, that there's a dodge-punch-punch-punch-punch pattern to follow and that the only way to get out of purple-fatigue mode is to dodge (also, the whole uppercut/star thing).

Man, Puch-Out still is an awesome game, and to this day I still haven't beaten Tyson/Mr Dream...

for some reason I always cringe when someone is playing a video game and have no idea what they're doing
