Commando

Commando

#commando #NES #takeThatFlag //

Thanks to @NES_Longplay for the walk-through/play-through. This was a late add, should’ve been out sometime in ’20… but, you know… today is the day it gets published to no fault of our own. Nor the scheduling mechanism.

To no avail, the stars aligned etc., Commando became reality. Game play is fantastic, painful long arduous process, leading to a never ending cycle of failed attempts. Unless of course you wait 20+ years, you’ve got yourself the ole’ map published on the web somewhere… and a cause of energy drink, coffee or tea. You might need a lot more, but let’s live big; in the moment. Believe you me, wish we had the map way back when. Although, have to admit, this game was one of those games that never ended… hence the need for walk-through. Commando is still on the list of ‘have not’s, meaning it’s still on the bucket list of games to dig up, play and complete the game. That’s where we live you today, 20 years in the making.

Top Gun NES

Top Gun

@Snapbackwill, check this out… this guy made it past Mission 1. What a nightmare! Maybe 80’s nostalgia to me or that real-life shooting pain in your hands (flashback)… you awaken, clinching your hand when recalling the horror of Top Gun. Landing was such a nightmare, same for game play. A nightmare only an 80’s child can recall after hour upon hour of wasted time trying to land the d#&@ aircraft on any mission, if you made it past Mission 1.

@NintendoComplete, shares the ultimate kick to the gut, this play-through is pure genius (no voice over, just the game and all of its glory). Glory of which I never had. The game still to this day, remains one of my favorite games besides may be Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!, Contra, Track & Field II, Kung Fu, Duckhunt. Hell there are to many games for a Top 10. Don’t forget Friday the 13th, here is @lordkayoss “Howdy Folks, LK on the Tube…”. This guy gets it. Great narrative, game play, tips/tricks for Friday the 13th and more. Give his YT channel a look, subscribe, click the bell. You know the drill.

Contra NES

C & Super C NES

#NES #NintendoEntertainmentSystem #Contra #Top10NES #UpUpDownDown #SelectStart #TwoPlayerFun //

@Peg (3.5M views) makes quick work of Contra… It’s been sometime, may be 20+ years since I’ve seen Contra or played myself. Might be one of my top 3 of 10 NES games of all time. Honestly, the video is pure gold… and it pains me to say it, I was never very good at video games. Super C (NES), Street Fighter 3 (SNES/Dreamcast), Soul Calibur (Dreamcast) were different. I didn’t have time as a kid, and the time I earned to play was pure torture! College, sure… we had all the time in the world to waste on FIFA, Soul Calibur, SSX Tricky, Golden Eye, Mario Kart and more.

Ah, one other item to note here, I think there are only a few games that remind me of OG (Original Gamer) Games (of which I played, so there is much smaller number of games to notate). Yes, this is subjective and limited to the games I could play around town. Contra is one of those, post arcade, post Pong, early at home gaming systems. NES only, Track & Field | T&F 2, Super Contra, Excitbike, Mario (Super Mario 1/2 & 3), Duckhunt, RBI Baseball, Hockey, Tecmo Bowl/Super Tecmo Bowl, Zelda, Link, Double Dragon, Kungfu (previous posts), Tetris. Didn’t have time to go over the Sega or Jaguar systems. Some other day, in some future land… There are far to games to remember, count, rank for which one or 100 are in the top 10. Just wanted to cover a few games that might spark an interest. Finally, for the record, this subjective of course, I’m sure you have your reasons for listing other games, fighting, first-person shooters or beat’em up games. Please share!

Finally, I’ll continue to post updates here, more NES, SEGA, SNES games and the likes. We will try arcade, computer games as well, assuming there is YouTube content to cover. Only reason I say this, is simply access to video content for games I don’t have. The goal will be simple, post a few games here and there, starting with the games I’m most familiar with and so on. I’ll try and stay out of the weeds… All joking aside, after losing so many d*(# times… This feels almost cathartic, a purge It did take practice, time and patience. 2 of 3 took time and with time, time heals all. Or I guess you take your licking and keep trying.

Track N’ Field 1/2 NES, SNES NEAT-O!

Track N’ Field 1/2 NES, SNES NEAT-O!

#NES_SNES_NEAT_O #NESNOSTALGIA # NESTrack&FieldII //

I’ll start off by saying Track & Field I and II are some good games… I skipped the screenshots on T&F I, meaning just providing the one for Long Jump… And splurged on the T&FII Video and in-game screenshots. I mean come on, T&FII had Arm Wrestling, Kayaking, Archery, Clay/Trap, Tae Kwon Do, Fencing, Hang Gliding, Hammer Throw, Steeple Chase, Swimming, Platform Diving, Triple Jump… (Did I miss any?) Regardless, this is the game that made me want to ‘play better’. And by play better, I mean it caused so much heartache, pain and suffering over a ‘silly’ game. That I mark that one day, so many days ago… that I would get better at gaming… Not sure, but I will ask.. Did I convince any of you, convince any of you that I did any more than waste a bunch of my meaningless youth playing such a game? I’m not sure I convinced myself… ((SUPER TANGENT)) Watching the Super Super Castlevania IV Playthrough now… EPIC Konami Game. While we are on the subject of Castlevania, those of you who are Anime fans, check out the Castlevania Animated Series, it’s good. It’s got that Dante’s Inferno Animated Series feeling… at least a similar treatment.((/SUPER TANGENT)) More to come at a later time I guess.

Sit back, enjoy the NES/SNES NOSTALGIA!

Grumble Grumble

Grumble, Grumble //

#NESLegendOfZelda #GoldNESCartridge //

“Grumble, Grumble” Everyone needs a little 80’s nostalgia, 80’s NES NOSTALGIA! May not be for everyone, certainly aiming to cover the 80/20 split, 20% being the hardcore gamers of the 80s/90’s. Those of you in the 80% or more, fair warning. You need some NES (this afternoon? tonight? all the time… people it’s LEGEND OF ZELDA). Could be a fan favorite, Top 5 of 10 NES games? Definitely at the top of the heap, may be top 3 or 4.

Kung Fu ((( YES )))

Kick & Punch, Beat ‘Em Up

#NES #NintendoEntertainmentSystem #Kungfu #Fu #Top10NES #Thomas #MrX #Silvia //

@NintendoComplete (1M views) Known as Fu around these parts. Not the other, let’s keep it clean… (( Shout Out )) @NintendoComplete coming through for the series again. Never could’ve, never would’ve won this game. Still in my Top 15 NES games. For nothing more than a reminder just how awesome 80’s Karate/MMA was in the US. Again, for a beat ’em up game you kick, sweep kick, jump kick and punch, fairly simple. Watch out various insects, knife-throwers and ceiling crawlers. At times this game can be tedious a painful reminder of arcade button-smashers. makes quick work of Contra… It’s been sometime, may be 10+ year or so. Might have caught a game or two in college, may be… since I’ve played Kungfu or played myself. Might be one of my top 3 of 10 NES games of all time. Honestly, the video is pure gold… and it pains me to say it, I was never very good at Kungfu, which is probably why it sits on my Top NES games of all time *for the games I had the privilege to play growing up.
