    ^Niiice. I tried Wild Woody at one point but found the opening levels alienating and hard to grasp. Did you find that it improved as it went on?

    And yeah, I've been surprised by the persistence of...

    Has Outworld 2375 AD ever been discussed around these parts? Or the alleged "heartbeat versions" of NHLPA Hockey and PGA Tour Golf II? There's a discussion on Reddit:

    I got a Blinking Light Win, and am 100% happy with it. I'd almost given up on playing NES on real hardware as I got so sick of the finickiness and all the mythology about "Just do X and it'll be...

    Apparently, yeah. If you're intrepid with the Wayback Machine it's pretty easy to figure out who, but no idea what the underlying reason was.

    That sounds awesome -- with your expertise I'm sure it'll be terrific! Great to know its differences and strengths will be documented.

    Yeah, Starblade was one of the reviews that got pulled by...
  6. Sticky: Excellent, Barone, and thank you for the video!...

    Excellent, Barone, and thank you for the video! Somehow it really looks like a "game of the future" in that video, if you know what I mean. Great that you have the right controller for it -- I'm sure...

    Not Fatal Labyrinth, but the thought of Sword of Sodan crossed my mind, simply because I had a blast playing that game, but I didn't feel like hearing the same tired accusations of "How can you like...
  8. OK, I've put together a list. One thing I...

    OK, I've put together a list. One thing I struggle with is the idea of being "objective": to me, the biggest thing that matters is my enjoyment of a game -- or more accurately, how rewarding it was...
  9. Sticky: I primarily had Genesis/Mega Drive and 32X in...

    I primarily had Genesis/Mega Drive and 32X in mind. In fact, why don't I put it that way: I'll commit to beating six unbeaten cartridge games in 2021. :)

    Anything I do on Sega CD is an extra;...
  10. Sticky: Well, I'll commit to trying to add six wins to...

    Well, I'll commit to trying to add six wins to this list in 2021. Ideally 12, i.e. one per month, but I'll try to be realistic here. :) I got burned out on Genesis after the first half of the 2010s...

    That'd be awesome -- we're now at the point where every win represents a big step, percentage-wise, toward the goal.

    You can rest assured I'm going to keep my avatar for the foreseeable future....

    Awesome, Goati!! For some reason Sega-16 totally stopped sending me timely notifications of threads*, so I'm only seeing this now.

    You've taken Genesis win #666 and brought us to only 25 games...
  13. Sticky: Awesome, Cafeman! Thanks for posting your win....

    Awesome, Cafeman! Thanks for posting your win. Great to see that Sega CD list shrink by quite a bit this year.

    Very on-target review. Oddly enough I was just mulling this game over, having forgotten that Phantar was going to be reviewing it, and thinking of what I would write about it -- and a lot of what he...

    Goati did indeed beat Lemmings -- I know he's been planning to stop by and post that victory.

    And yeah, Stellar-Fire is technically impressive but a mess to play. The lack of a reverse button is...

    I just spent the afternoon playing through Stellar-Fire on Easy, so I'll aim to complete a run on Normal sometime this week.

    Not a great game -- who the hell thought it was a good idea to have a...

    Really interesting stuff, Tony -- thank you again. It seems certain that my missing medal must have been based on score since I didn't reach the threshold, so who knows whether I got the placement of...

    ...So am I the only one who's noticed that you can pretty much just spam fireballs as Ryo and beat the entire game with ease, even on Expert difficulty?

    I ran through the whole thing tonight on...

    Interesting -- when I beat the game back in January 2012 (so I was pretty close with my guess of 2011!), the third medal was apparently the only one I didn't get.

    EDIT: Aha, very interesting that...

    BTW the earlier picture isn't a screenshot from my playthrough -- I'm guessing it's a still shot from a YouTube video that I can't find anymore. I wish I had a picture of my run from...

    ^You are the best! As far as I know, no one knows anything about any of this at all -- until now. Excited to see the other four!!

    Awesome, Tony, thanks so much! This will be a real help.

    I'd love to know the hard-patched ROM codes, actually -- I tend to do hard patches a fair percentage of the time, especially for playing on...

    That sure looks likely to be the best possible ending to me -- not that it matters for our purposes, since a "good" ending is enough, but what more could they do? Anoint you President? :D

    Terrific...

    Ha, a lot of that sounds familiar! One question: you are using the lock-on targeting function activated by (as I recall) holding down B, right? That made the game go from "more or less unplayable" to...
