No amount of skills could get you through the thing he showed with the gem in C2. The only way I and anyone who I knew that played the damn thing could get through that bit was with either Nintendo Power or some other strategy guide. I also recall a similar situation with a lowering lake, or something, where there was simply no indication of what to do.
TMNT is a good game, but man, it is so hard. That's what makes it bad. It's just so unfair that you get pissed. But it's fun to me.
When I was a kid, I only got up to the van level. About a year ago, I emulated it with cheat codes. Holy shit, I would've never beat it when I was a kid. Damned if I could beat it now without cheat codes. What an incredibly difficult game.
He made some points in Castlevania2 but a couple were really retarded.
I didn't look at the rest of the video because even when i was young i thought those games sucked so i suppose i'm aware of what he is talking about.
TMNT has got to be the worst of the series. I can't remember much other than the annoying water levels and the sewers. I only played the first one cuz of the ninja turtles. If the game had starred a fat plumber, I would have seen through it and would have shot it for the crap it was. Not even Mario's face could have made people think it was a good game. Turtle power, baby.
I'm pretty sure we did when we were younger. He didn't really have much else to do. NTSC NES in a country where games weren't available = having to make do with the games you had. TMNT, Zelda, Goonies II and that olympic game with the mat were ****ing great ways to kill time.
I was such a turtle fanatic that I actually beat the first game. Once you learn the game like a finely crafted piece of silicon chip then it gets easier but yeah the mechanics blowed but there were glitches around all of them. Shredder was easy if you saved up all your wave projectiles. I vote he does demon sword next or rcr.
You can't sway me with your talk of fake respect, I am the most skillful gamer here, I have played more BAD games than you EVER will, and Angry Nintendo Nerd is correct on all fronts - no IFs ANDs or BUTs about it
