Metroid II isnt less of a game. It's vastly superior - and that says a lot since its NES vs GB.

I make Pixel Art on occasion, and sometimes sell them as Game Assets.

Oh i've bet Metroid quite a lot, but more the remake than the original. Who of you have memorised the entire layout of Zebes in the original Metroid? I definitely have! I don't even need to resort to a walkthrough for either version and i've never needed to either! Metroid II however, I didn't ever get to play until up to the VC release this year, so that's a hard one, but not really as @RR529 put it. Metroid II is fairly linear, and i'm a bit of a completionist, I think it took me 15 hours to find every single upgrade and defeat the final boss, but that's no record time by the way.
I find the GBA version, Zero Mission, is easier for speed runs, mostyl because I can beat it in uner 1hr 20mins or less! I haven't tried speed running the original, but that would be a whole new challenge for me if I were to try.
Also whenever I do play the remake, I always set it to Hard mode, because easy isn't the same as the originals difficulty and the original only had one, Hard, but Hard always feels easy to me LOL

I have a ton of games but haven't beaten much only kirby's dream land (It was easy and short), Super Mario Land 2 (also easy but had good length), Sonic: Triple Trouble (Fun sonic game and i love playing as Tails), and 3D Classics Kirby's Adventure (Easy game and i had it for GBA). That's all I've beaten out of my about 40 3DS VC games but i'm gonna start getting down to beat more games. the ones on my list are Lock n' Chase, 3D Classics: Kid Icarus, Avenging Spirit, Donkey Kong '94, Metroid, and Bionic Comando. These i will try to beat this weekend.

Now for something completely different!
Still got it memorized?

I just beat The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX. I had never played it before, as I was into Zelda as a kid and also kind of skipped out on the GBC in general. It is a great game, and I highly recommend it. I also beat DK '94 a couple months ago. That game was really good too.

Uses Phoenix Down on thread

I recently completed Gargoyle's Quest II: The Demon Darkness. It was... short. And surprisingly easy, considering how difficult the original GB release was.

Adventure Island NES. I forgot how hard this game was. I had to use save states in the last world.

My Wii U VC backlog is pretty immense. I'm halfway through Yoshi's Island (GBA), Minish Cap and Fire Emblem and I have played about an hour of Wii VC games despite buying the first 3.

I only posted this to get my avatar as the forum's thumbnail.


Mystical Ninja starring Goemon (GB)
Castlevania The Adventure (GB)

Vegas Stakes (SNES)

Does anyone play the Gameboy version of Vegas Stakes? I saw it in the eShop and I was like wow.... nty. But I SO remember seeing that game being sold in stores when I was a kid. The green and gold. Same with the SNES but the GB box stood out more.
I'm coming close to finishing DK Country on my WiiU, I really am dying to get the 2nd one. Paranoia has ensued and I'm needing to buy these games before Nintendo pulls the rug on it again randomly like they did on the Wii.
Jk, prob wont pull rug but after that one time they did it, I can't be too careful now.

Ninja Gaiden (NES). Yes, this is my first legit completion of the game and I'm proud that I managed to beat the three end-bosses. I know the 'Kill Jaquio and the alien with a single life bar!' type of thing, but it was done on the first attempt (so I had the refill for the alien).

Edit: I completed it for the 2nd time today (thankfully, on the first try). Now I can finally consider playing it from time to time. It was a very unforgiving game (especially on the initial playthroughs). I can only try NG II now (I haven't beaten it, just got to act 7 bosses and saw that there are no health refills at the start of each fight).
