Legitimately impressed by how clutterless and cute that setup looks, Petty.

Thanks dude! I've gone through several different ways of organizing my games. I only have a 1 bedroom so space is a premium.

Here's a look in the case under the tv:

Assuming that the PAL is referring to the region, that wouldn't be a Canadian copy.
The cartridge label says says NES-AL-FRA, so I'd guess France.

Yeah, that looks like a PAL-A cart.

Finished the year speedrunning / playing two underrated platformers on the NES: Jackie Chan's Action Kung Fu and Pizza Pop! Highly recommended if people are looking to play a couple of shortish games. I also participated in a speedrun marathon on Twitch in October for WR holders in NES games. I ended up doing alright but I did die once on a boss fight (bad RNG / nervousness). I don't have a clue what I want to speedrun next though.

so what's the easiest emulator to use on my surface pro? saw that there was a big dump of snes games in the dropbox and impulsively grabbed it, but can't get snes9x, zsnes, higane, or retroarch to work. they're all giving me errors about different missing files when I try to start the emu. kind of remember this being a pain in the ass last time I wanted to get into this stuff a few years ago but can't recall what ended up working out :(

Its likely your just missing the BIOS files of everything, they can't legally distribute those with the emulators.

metroid prime 2 is mostly great and i'm glad i'm finally getting around to playing another one of these after 15 years but god the decision to turn this into a series about space marines at war dates it so badly in a way that isn't even charming to me. the color palette is also a lot darker and theres less ambient life than in the first game. just. it could've been so fucking good if they weren't trying to turn it into halo. as i understand prime 3 is even worse in this regard and other m is what it is. i still want to get around to playing prime 3 eventually tho. hope the decade off means retro pulls off something special for the fourth game.
My body like a back road. Not many people know about it. People talk to me and they go I didn't even know you have a body. They ask me about it and then they go Yeah you got arms and legs and everything. The only people that know I got a body are people I really like it's crazy

I really wish Nintendo would just make another Super Metroid style game, I don't care about the Prime series at all. I really don't like the genre drift the Metroid series has had.

isn't the new 3DS game pretty much them going that way even if it's based on Metroid 2?

Did you ever play AM2R, Kenny?

I was scared away by the reviews (esp. Jeremy Parish who I usually agree with + he's a huge metroid fan) saying that the counter-based combat kind of ruined it for him. I definitely plan to pick it up on some impulse if/when it gets cheap though.

I played A2M it was def dope. I also thought Axiom Verge was amazing on a second playthrough (after listening to a Retronauts interview where the creator said he created the speedrun option also for people who didn't want any plot explained like the original metroid)

yeah I don't have a 3DS so I didn't play it but it's still probably the most classic-styled metroid game they made since zero mission

god zero mission was 14 years ago

Todd Rogers has had his Dragster time removed and he's been banned completely from Twin Galaxies records :shock:



I'm a little sad because I really liked Todd Rogers instantly after seeing him in the Chasing Ghosts documentary

yeah i ended up abandoning 2 about 1/3 of the way in just thinking i'd much rather revisit the first game. or any of the 2d games.

sigh oh well. still hope they do something cool with 4 given they took so much time off the franchise.
