I just dropped in to say I haven't quit, I love this league and will be back in due course. My life's been turned upside down recently and I'm in the process of moving across the country and starting afresh. I skimmed this thread quickly and would like to add my two pence:
I'm still against the...
Damn! How do I choose? I haven't spent a lot of time on Golden Axe so I really fancied playing that, but I love Smash TV and it's perfect for this league. Both of my votes weren't supposed to win!
Smash TV has to be played as high score by the way Levi, keep it simple :)
Seems like every time I get a half decent run going those four blocks decide to form a wall. Or I'll turn the corner and three of them will already be in the air, so I aim for the one on the ground thinking it'll move by the time I get there: but of course it doesn't...
So here's an easily beatable time to kick off the karting:
Super Mario Kart
There was lots of crashing into walls and blocks involved, so I'll be very surprised if this is still the fastest by the end of today. Sad thing is that this time is a whopping 30 seconds faster than...
I can't believe how long it took me to work out how to avoid the giant spinning laser at the end of stage four. By the way is anyone else starting to get really annoyed with the talking bits between stages? My Pandora's buttons take more abuse during them than any other...
Got just past One Eyed Joe's helicopter thing in the shaft but then he got me on the next bit. Which way do you go after stage one? I always go to the research centre - although only because I figured out how not to die going that way first and stuck with it.
I meant the small one before that, but I've got it now. That virtual zone goes on forever, eh? What's with the tetris blocks? Any chance of some personal space? :P
I really like this game because it's virtually all boss battles, and good boss battles at that; not too easy, not too hard. You...
I wasn't really fussed which version is nominated, I just wondered why john4p preferred it on Sega CD is all. In fact I've played the arcade version A LOT so Sega CD sounds good to me :)
So to kick off Contra:
Should be pretty easy to beat; anyone gonna play with me or do I get all the points by default?
I think I'm going to say no to drugs and stay away from the LSD simulator, going for Contra instead. I don't have a great deal of time to play and I get killed a lot quicker on that :D
It's a really fun game (lot of explosions - I'm easily pleased), but maybe not such a good choice for a high...
