Booooo, i want to throw down my current Retro games I've beaten on this thread, but they're on the VC...Yet the Wii VC thread is kind of shall i say daffy duck dead as nobody seems to be playing much VC games considering the state of the Wii's VC since it's infected with gaming Rigamortis and is on Molly Ringwald life support :p

Ugh, I mean i can't stand playing my NES or SNES on my 42" 1080p LCD, not only because of the motion handeling, but because NES games just don't look good on the big screen, let alone a 1080p display for the most part, plus the composite connection for the NES doesn't quite blast out poppy colors on my LCD no matter how far i max them out, i mean it does but not quite as good as my CRT plus it ends up crushing a bit of detail. :p

Aghhhh, i so need a game room for my 27" TUBER. :p I've got no room currently. eek!
What's a radical retro rooster to do!? B-) I'm itching to play the horribly awesome Back to the Future, Amagon and TMNT III: The Manhattan project.

I know what you mean. I still use a standard def TV for all of my gaming until the HD Wii U comes out next year.

That's exactly what i was going to do, but my Sony 32" wega SDTV got a case of the green goblin as the screen keeps switching to a shade of green.lol But What i love about my new LCD aside from having a black frame instead of a Silver Space ship silver on my Old set, would have to be progressive scan which is just wonderful.

Wii games look clearer/crisper and cleaner on my LCD than on my CRT, plus the wider color gamut options let me blast out colors that weren't possible on my SDTV, although there a bit of color detail crushing in the process. Oh and the brightness levels thanks to the back light is amazing, beats out my SDTV easily. But you don't wan't it too high otherwise you'll scorth your eyes Fry Guy-style into Kingdom Grey Skull. Black levels are the same, yet my CRT SDTV wins in the motion department.

Lag wise it's amazing, there's only a slight difference i think. :p which is practically unoticable. But for the millionth time what's annoying the hell hound hell out of me is the crappier soft yet awesome widescreen mode. I just need to get over it and set it to 4:3, because it's just a bogus widescreen tease for the masses that looks worse But ya, whatever. :p

How would the difficulty rank up against something like Adventure Island or Ghosts 'n Goblins? I honestly don't think I'll play a harder game in my life after the grueling mega tropical ordeal i had with Adventure Island. :p I mean I wouldn't mind, but it would be tough to find some. Even the mighty and challenging Ghosts 'n goblins doesn't match it's difficulty, Ninja Gaiden III and Castlevania III i found were even tougher than Ghosts 'n goblins, mind you NGIII had unlimited continues but even if it didn't i'd still rank it as the toughest NES gaiden. :o

The original TMNT and Blaster Master however have defeated me and it completely pisses me off beyond Bowser belief! lol
I can't make it to shredder during the final stage, but i blame this on poor game design.lol And Blaster Master's final battle is balls to the walls insanity(So is that blue lobster that hurls ice at you, almost next to impossible without using that pause glitch), made it to his 3rd form while it felt like i was just about to take him down when i got axed at the last minut. I made it to the final boss 3 more times, but i called it quits because i got sick and tired and bored to tears of the game since i had to restart and listen to those repetitive grating tunes over and over. :p

yeah youll never beat Amagon lol.
watch the youtube playthrough of it. i rented it for years and never seen past the second level i believe. i actually bought it like 10 years ago again and had the same problem. if i bought it again it would be like swallowing a cheese grater or sucking on a urinal puck...i know i shouldnt do it

I actually haven't made it past the 2nd level based on the last time i played it at the age of 6 or 7 when i rented it at the videostore. That box art just does something to me and takes me back to fuzzy wuzzy nostalgia land. :p And I bet you i will conquer this little NES beastie.....I won't have it any other way! :p it's just a matter of making room for my 27" and doing it.

yeah you cant beat the box art for Amagon. i seen the whole game on youtube and it was awesome, imo its hardcore Nes music as well. i just really wish it was easier...ive never played a game on an emulator and dont plan on doing it either. i love this game but dang is it hard. do yourself a favor and watch it get beat on youtube. the last boss has something to do with the Flatwoods Monster if yer into Cryptozoology or Cryptid type stuff.

Thanks for the spoilers! But I guess you figured i wouldn't live to see that cryptic Nun-looking freak show of a final boss anyhow. :p And I don't want to watch the playthrough on YouTube, because that would just spoil basically everything. :p

In your opinion, which is thee' toughest NES game out there? Snake Rattle 'n Role, Amagon, Adventure Island, Blaster Master ect cet? B-)

I could never make it past that Kart Racing area(which I think was the 2nd or 3rd level?) back in the day during my Battletoads days. Never played Double Dragon III or II, but i beat the original for the first time last Christmas, something i couldn't even come close to achieving as a little Wavester'. Plus i finished Super Ghouls N Ghosts a year or so ago on Halloween and i think it's safe to say that Super Ghouls beats out the Arcade original in terms of difficulty like a Wild berry sugar coated toaster stroodle over a stale strawberry pop tart. :p

Hey, and don't forget Fester's Quest :o
Karate Kid was a bit of a stumper as well, not to mention Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse and Ninja Gaiden III.

also Little Nemo: The Dream Master can be pretty hard. yeah Ninja Gaiden games were always tough. Double Dragon 2 was okay but you have to set the difficulty to "Supreme Master" to see the real last boss (which is the hardest difficulty)

Shadowgate!
Released: 1989 by Kemco for the NES!

Untitled Untitled Untitled Untitled

Shadowgate is one of those NES games I knew of but missed out on as a kid. Maybe it was the menacing gargoyle on the front of the box along with the well known Grim Reaper screenshot that was enough to deter me away as an 8 year-old easily scared kid. After rediscovering this title years later and with my new odd obsession for video games with gargoyles, I was looking forward to finally accepting my role as the last living member of warrior kings and storming the castle to defeat the evil Warlock Lord! What I discovered right away is that storming Castle Shadowgate is not really the name of the game here. It's more about about "point and click," "trail and error" and enjoying the entertaining description of your latest death! It's a tough game, from the very beginning of the game you are given your first mighty challenge, a locked door which took me twenty minutes to open!

The main screens may be simple but they are nicely done. The colors are eye-catching and aesthetically pleasing in all that classic wondrous NES fashion that you retro fans have come to know and love. You will come across a lot of monsters who are a definite product of the 80’s as they radiate the colors of bright pink, neon green, and hypercolor blue. The realistic HD dragons in games today have nothing on these bad boys. Yes, the screen doesn’t show much action but which one of us hasn’t wanted to visit a decrepit building and search out its secrets whether as a curious kid or an adventurous adult? Shadowgate does a great job of connecting and hooking onto this desire. Enjoy the ride too because after you discover “the way” through Shadowgate like Luke Skywalker discovered the Force things will become easy and the replayability for this one is just nonexistent. I really enjoyed the accompanying music. The Main Hall Theme is superb and will never be forgotten while the music from the other areas fits the atmosphere really well.

This game is not for everyone as some may find the limited action boring. It’s unique to console gaming in that you need to simply read the text, think out a possible solution, apply, and hope for the best. Shakespeare it is not but with the right mindset it can play out like a fun and absorbing interactive book. That is what makes this a cult-classic and fans of older games looking for something fresher than the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air should at least give Shadowgate a try!

Crimson Skies!
Developer: Fasa Studios
Released: For the Xbox!

UntitledUntitled
UntitledUntitled

If you have an original Xbox, then you already know it's home to some of the greatest retro games ever made and that Crimson Skies is one of them. It took me forever to finally give this game a chance though. For years the image of Nathan Zachary in his socks put me off playing this game since I'm not a curious kid or an adventurous adult. But a friend loaned it to me so I decided to dust off Crimson Skies.

The game opens with Nathan Zachary rudely awakened by a sky pirate running off with the keys to his cockpit. Now it's up to Nathan to keep his pants on long enough to get his plane back and settle his gambling debts--in blood! You may or may not be pleased to learn that you won't be seeing much of Nathan but rather his plane, Crimson Skies is a sort of flight sim with a big emphasis on action. The first level serves as a tutorial where an irritated Betty (probably tired of Nathan's pantsless adventures) decides to show you the ropes. Now if you still remember how to use one of those old dual analog controllers, the controls are easy to pick up and you should get comfortable with them fast.

As you play through Crimson Skies a larger plot begins to reveal itself, and you'll have to take on side jobs around each area to raise money if you want to progress though the game and tackle those big bosses. You'll find yourself dogfighting, racing, flying escort missions, and attacking gun towers. You'll also want to flag down hidden tokens and acquire new planes/upgrades, if you plan to survive the Crimson Skies. The online aspect is a thing of the past, but retro gamers can still enjoy the single player campaign.

The ride isn't the only thing that's rough in Crimson Skies, the low polygon count will look as weird today as real life Toby McGuire to HD gamers. Most of these old games of yesteryear aren't widescreen either. True retro gamers will appreciate the traditional level of vertex shading and care they put into these old Xbox classics regardless. The music complements the action well enough too but it doesn't exactly wake me up inside. Why can't I listen to my own CD soundtracks in Skies like I could with GTA?

They sure don't make them like Crimson Skies anymore. If you like firestorms and revenge and aren't afraid of old school games, maybe it's time for you to take the Devastator out of retirement and start flying by the seat of Nathan's ever shifting pants.

Graphics: 10
Sound: 9
Fun Factor: 10
Awesomeness: 11

OVERALL: 10/10 The high road to retro gaming!

Well I've blasted through the entire professor layton series! I won't put up pictures since it'd take forvever, but if I could rank them, I'd have to go

Diabolical Box (6/10) ----> Last Specter (7/10) ----> Curious Village (9/10) ----> Unwound Future (9/10)

Here's to The Eternal Diva! And maybe I'll get a 3DS to play the next games in the series, though it's gonna take a lot of persuasion for me to do it.

I can understand someone calling the xbox retro (it's not IMO.) but a DS series? I'm sorry, you probably just didn't see retro up there in the title.

I legit loled. Good job.

Probably mainly because I am old and Xbox = retro will probably always be just false to me, logic be damned. Regardless of my opinions, I think everyone who grew up with an SNES just facepalmed reading that.

Crimson Skies is awesome though.

also for some hypocricy: I beat Super Monkey Ball 2! I'm amazed at how not incredibly difficult World 10 was, I remember that being the most difficult thing ever.
