Good on you.

While not brutally difficult, those games do "bring the challenge". I first learned about these two around ten years ago and felt I missed out on some the the best NES titles.

I'm playing it, but I gotta admit that I don't like the Lost Levels much. At no point have I felt psyched about coming home to play it. It just feels like a chore.


Funny how people tend to gravitate to different genres. For me Lost Levels is light and fun and easy peasy. But that FPS stuff you play? I'd be lucky to make it out of level one.

Oh, on a whim I downloaded the original 8-bit Lost Levels from the eShop yesterday afternoon. Way more brutal than the All-Stars remake. Got my ass handed to me rather quickly.


Yeah, I know what you mean. Playing FPS is basically second nature at this point, I've been doing it for so long. It's one of the few genres that I specifically crave, and I seek them out endlessly. I've probably beaten more of them than any other genre. I've beaten 14(including expansions and hybrids) already just this year. Heck, if I go back through the Games Beaten threads to 2010, I've beaten 72 of them in the last five years. When I'm on GOG making requests, they're almost always FPS, and I will almost always immediately buy new FPS that end up on their service.

But platformers? They just don't appeal to me. There are some I love, like the original Mega Man series and Castlevanias, but Mario? Sonic? Just not for me. They don't thrill me in the same way.

But we'll always have RPGs, Bone.

Yeah, that's how I feel about them, too. I was an RPG fiend back in the NES days, although I was a huge Mega Man fan as well. But I really did tend to gloss over a lot of the action games... and those were two that didn't get a lot of fanfare. They're both great games, and they're short enough to blast through in an evening. And they're not incredibly hard like the Ninja Gaiden games or Battletoads, or even Batman, but they're tough. And they feel fair, which makes all the difference in the world.

Too lazy to google, but I believe both games were released at the end of the 8-bit era. I also don't remember them being on the cover of Nintendo Power.

However, I said they weren't brutally difficult. But! I'd like to see a gamer under the age of twenty try to complete either of the two. I'd say that Shatterhand is a bit more difficult than Batman, but that's up for debate.

Great list Sarge.

Luke if you haven't played these NES games yet, I believe you would enjoy them:

Code Name: Viper
Journey to Silius
Kabuki Quantum Fighter
Low G Man: The Low Gravity Man
Power Blade
Power Blade 2
Strider
Vice: Project Doom


Much challenge, such awesome.

Thanks!

I own all of them besides Journey To Silius (and Kabuki) , which I've been wanting to own since it was released. I remember hearing it was "Part terminator plus part Blaster Master" and I was sold. Expensive cart though.

Might need to finally pull the trigger and purchase Silius.

Vice: Project Doom, in particular, is an excellent game. It pulls the disparate genres together in a way Bayou Billy only wishes it could. It wants to be Ninja Gaiden in its cutscenes, but sadly it doesn't pull off things with nearly the aplomb that series does.

Kabuki is also surprisingly decent. I like a lot about it. It's a little rougher than the top-tier stuff, but it's certainly quite fun. Just manage your chips carefully, or you'll end up with some really, really tough boss fights towards the end.

I beat it for the first time last year, and I think it's worth the cost. Truly a challenging game, but do-able. Nice run'n'gun action. It has an unbelievably awesome original soundtrack too. One of the NES's best in that regard.

I don't even remember the last time i updated my list and maybe i forgot to add more games to the current list

1- Heavenly Sword (Ps3)
2- Deus Ex: Human Revolution (PS3)
3- Sonic Generations (Ps3)
4- Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance (3DS)
5- Legend of Zelda: Link between worlds (3DS)
6- Castlevania: Mirror of Fate (3DS)
7- Pokemón Crystal (GBC)
8- Pokemón Fire Red (GBA)
9- Pokémon Y (3DS)*
10- Duke Nukem Forever (PS3)
11- New Super Mario Bros (DS)
12- Dishonored (PS3)
13- Batman: Arkham Asylum (PS3)
14- House of the Dead Overkill (PS3)


New SMB: I find more enjoyable and fun than NSMB 2, withouth the coin rush mode the levels can be more complicated.

Dishonored: Low chaos play, sthealthy as posible but i allowed myself to kill 2-3 people per level in case i fail something. Well you know this game becomes MUCH better when you abuse the blink power! *Puff* Im behind cover now*Puff* Im behind my enemy now, i choke them and grab the body*Puff* Now i put the body far away*Puff* Now im on my normal way now. Still i really feel that the sthealt options are limited compared to being chaotic, and also since the game changes depending on how much chaos you create i find myself checking a few videos of the alternative endings and... the high chaos stage at the end looks SO MUCH BETTER. Rain and lightning in the sky, a grim presence in the island, the 4 people who betrayed you are in a war with each other. THAT'S my main issue with this game, the combat is more enjoyable than the sthealt mechanics and being good (kinda feels like a metaphore). In the end i have fun with the game but aparently not at the same level i have with deus ex or thief.

Batman AS: Now something wierd about this game, i don't think is the best thing ever made but i just had to play it all day until i finish it. Is really well done and i enjoy everything about it, the gadgets, the combat, the characters, the story everything fits really well with each other. Maybe the only thing i didn't like too much was when they throw you a giant with normal people to fight, they're not a good mix, usually i espend my time walking in circles waiting for the big guy to do his thing so i can throw a batarang to his head and punch him. That i sometimes killer croc acted a bit cheap on this level and was a bit longer than it should.

Edit: Forgot about house of the dead, beated it in coop and almost in single player. The game is awesome!

They're plenty good & difficult. Now he just has to try to beat Abadox and S.C.A.T. for the Natsume "Bring The NES Challenge" quad-fecta award. :lol:
