(the pic was taken with my camera on a tv screen, that's why it looks a little dodgy)

Ant Attack |=| (Ste), Thursday, 16 October 2008 15:34 (eleven years ago) link

4 is totally san andreas

THERE IS NO VULCAN DEATH GRIP (Will M.), Thursday, 16 October 2008 18:52 (eleven years ago) link

I never played it but there's something about the art style of #2 that reminds me of some random pics I saw of X-COM.

Like sicking a little bit of water into my mouth (HI DERE), Thursday, 16 October 2008 18:55 (eleven years ago) link

#2 is driving me crazy. i have played that game.

THERE IS NO VULCAN DEATH GRIP (Will M.), Thursday, 16 October 2008 19:20 (eleven years ago) link

#2 also reminds me of one of the later Space Quest games.

Like sicking a little bit of water into my mouth (HI DERE), Thursday, 16 October 2008 19:21 (eleven years ago) link

#4 is not san andreas, but you're close lol

#2 still up for grabs, i'm going to change it i think that's too hard.

Ant Attack |=| (Ste), Thursday, 16 October 2008 20:55 (eleven years ago) link

THERE IS NO VULCAN DEATH GRIP (Will M.), Thursday, 16 October 2008 22:35 (eleven years ago) link

mine apparently may be impossibly obscure, it doesn't even have a wiki article!

Are they termites? I can't think of any game fighting termites !

I thought my new image of #2 might have helped things, apparently not.

Wow, Zeilard! I remember always seeing that box at Egghead (or Games N Gadgets or Software Etc. or CompUSA or whatever other sad, defunct chain of the olden days) with its swarthy sword-swinging warrior looking every bit like a game I would be into, and then the screens of the game itself looked like an ugly, cramped, pixellated drag. Maybe not though? Looks kinda Zelda II-esque, looking at it now...

Doctor Casino, Wednesday, 22 May 2013 19:36 (seven years ago) link

big ups forks! Base Wars is one of my favorite games ever, probably because i hate baseball, and i'm still waiting for the hd remake.

precious bonsai children of new york (Jordan), Wednesday, 22 May 2013 19:56 (seven years ago) link

one of my big strategies was to upgrade the pitcher as much as possible, then bean/walk the batters, running down their hp and eventually blowing them up until the other team has to forfeit because they don't have enough players.

i played it back when i was renting games in rounds of three for the nes from a local drugstore that had four utterly chaotic shelves of games to choose from

<3 all y'all

Doctor Casino, Wednesday, 22 May 2013 20:14 (seven years ago) link

I loved the chaotic-shelf video game rental experience, especially given that the huge number of NES titles meant that going with your friend to the place their Mom usually took them meant an entirely new, weird selection of games. No rhyme or reason - seemingly high-profile things would be quite scarce. I remember the only time I played TMNT: Manhattan Project, it was rented from a Stein-Mart at a mall I never otherwise frequented.

Doctor Casino, Wednesday, 22 May 2013 20:16 (seven years ago) link

yeah, if you REALLY dug in you could often find some real high-profile games jammed into a corner where some kid hid them to save for later. I think that's how i finally played startropics.

klaus dingeldore's rhinelander monkey keeper father (forksclovetofu), Wednesday, 22 May 2013 20:17 (seven years ago) link

damn, weird formatting. #68 is killer 7

woah, missed this - way to go closing that mystery out after 4.5 years!

flipside of the rental experience is, obviously, bringing home impenetrable impossible crap where you couldn't get past the first level and it suuuuuuucked. I have had many people defend "Legendary Wings" to me over the years but I cannot shake the sad, hot summer day's memory of just being frustrated to death and having nothing on which to direct my rage.

Doctor Casino, Wednesday, 22 May 2013 20:25 (seven years ago) link

holy crap Base Wars, i remember that one

haha, surprised that's all.

i was terrible at legendary wings, but i used to a watch a friend (who was great at it) play all the time. i think the music was pretty nice?

92 is Dirt Showdown?

These are my every day balloons (Ste), Thursday, 23 May 2013 20:35 (seven years ago) link

nope, but you are on to something re: theme. it might be a criminally neglected game for all i know, but i can vouch for it being totally awesome.

Storyboard director Zachary G. Brown stated that, "This game could put Sonic the Hedgehog in a whole new light. He could reach the top of the charts once more." The game's art and setting were heavily influenced by the games Shadow of the Colossus, Prince of Persia, and God of War.[20]
