@  Steevy Maximus : (25 May 2020 - 01:37 PM)

I'm actually sad Cyberverse won't get another season. 2 and 3 (of what I've seen) have REALLY nailed it in being fun little actions shows, like the Sunbow series.

@  Rycochet : (25 May 2020 - 01:00 PM)

Yes.

@  Maximus Ambus : (25 May 2020 - 12:52 PM)

I'm waiting for Animated season 4. Am I insane?

@  wonko the sane? : (25 May 2020 - 11:22 AM)

I'm waiting for the next season to show up on netflix.

@  Sabrblade : (25 May 2020 - 10:59 AM)

Many of us have already watched the rest of the Cyberverse episodes since the whole third season aired in the UK last September.

@  Bass X0 : (25 May 2020 - 01:28 AM)

Already seen it online.

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 09:42 PM)

Who's excited for tomorrow? The only thing that makes Monday worth it is the Cyberverse episodes .-.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 May 2020 - 12:30 PM)

Welcome. I just came into that trick myself recently, so happy to share.

@  Nevermore : (24 May 2020 - 12:05 PM)

Thanks, wonko the sane? for the tip with the cloning. That helped a lot!

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 12:02 PM)

Heheh.... yes... I don't think a sniper would be very good at making a vaccine... 0.0

@  Nevermore : (24 May 2020 - 11:48 AM)

All right! Cloning my old HHD to an SSD and then swapping out the drive was successful, it would appear. Finally.

@  Bass X0 : (24 May 2020 - 11:30 AM)

Scientist Perceptor is. Sniper Perceptor less so.

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 10:51 AM)

Perceptor would be more responsible.

Little do we realize that the Perceptor in question is the Mini-Con combiner. :p

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

He would!!!

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

Horrible consequences? I... Doubt that would happen.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:55 PM)

Even if he would come up with the answer by tomorrow.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:54 PM)

I'd rather not deal with the horrible but unintended consequences of that.

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 09:52 PM)

Lets let Perceptor make a vaccine for COVID-19. Who agrees with me :)

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 08:43 PM)

I'll take your word for it. =D

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 May 2020 - 08:42 PM)

@  fourteenwings : (23 May 2020 - 10:22 AM)

By that logic we might as well just get rid of the Shoutbox wholesale! I'd rather have like 3 or 4 things stuck for a week or so than one person dominating the whole thing (no offense Nevermore).

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 May 2020 - 03:30 AM)

I would argue that "full of something one doesn't read" and "devoid of reading material" are functionally identical at the end-user level. :D

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 May 2020 - 07:58 PM)

If it emptied, it would become empty.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 07:53 PM)

It would be the same effect as if the shoutbox simply emptied once or twice a week.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 May 2020 - 07:27 PM)

I don't see how having walls of the same guy on top whenever I go to any page on this site is "refreshing".

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 06:10 PM)

I don't know, I find the occasional flushing of the box to be refreshing.

@  Telly : (22 May 2020 - 04:20 PM)

but its gets annoying seeing a wall of text from him that takes up most of the shoutbox

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 03:53 PM)

Eh, that's just Nevermore.

@  fourteenwings : (22 May 2020 - 12:11 AM)

@Nevermore: Good rule of thumb is if you feel like you need not just multiple statements but also multiple shouts to make a point, best just make a thread.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2020 - 05:36 PM)

Dude, do you just, not know when to stop?

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:35 PM)

Instead of "I have only ten hours to get all my stuff from place A to place B", it's more like "I temporarily stored 90% of my stuff in easily accessible place C in my spare time, so now I have ten hours to get the remaining 10% of my stuff over to the new place before permanently saying goodbye to the old place".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2020 - 03:33 PM)

At these point you two are just repeating what you already said.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:32 PM)

Again using my "moving apartments" analogy. If you can store the stuff you don't immediately need for everyday life somewhere else, it reduces the critical time of permanently switching your primary base of residence over to the new place because there's less stuff to move when the time comes.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:30 PM)

Well, my main point is that it will speed up the system migration so I have A) less system downtime because there are fewer files to transfer before the new system can be up and running and B) it reduces the risk of something going wrong during the system migration.

NES.

Megaman. all of them.(though i'd specifically recommend 2 and 3).
Dragon Warrior 3 and 4. 1 and 2 are ok, but more grind heavy.
Destiny of an Emperor. similar to dragon warrior, but more interesting.
Final Fantasy
Faxanadu
Blaster Master
Metroid
Legend of Zelda, of course
Super Mario Bros 3
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 1, 2, and 3.
Marble Madness
Little Nemo: The Dream Master

Duck Tales
River City Ransom
Low G Man
Blaster Master
Batman
Deja Vu

Great call on Little Nemo! I loved that game and I still have it!

I'd also recommend Town & Country Surf Designs: Wood & Water Rage, I'm not so much a fan of the surfing side of the game, but the skating part was just SO darn fun when I was a kid!!! You keep playing similar boards, but they get longer and more difficult every time.

Have fun!

Crystalis. It's a better Zelda than Zelda. Seriously. It has all the same gameplay aspects as Zelda but without any of the infuriating issues. You don't have to die in order to save, the mechanics of firing energy from your sword are MUCH better, there's an RPG-esque leveling system and you can interact with people in towns. It might seem a little ho-hum by today's standards, but the game was lightyears ahead of its time in the 80s. A shame SNK has forgotten it exists.

Street Fighter 2010. People hate it because it's called "Street Fighter", is made by Capcom and has *nothing* to do with the Street Fighter franchise outside of the main character being named Ken and shooting energy blasts out of his hands. But don't be fooled: this game rocks. It's basically just a series of boss battles, one after another with only a handful of platforming levels in between. So pretty much all the good stuff without the boring bits. It's one of the most graphically intense games on the system and you can pull off some really impressive moves once you get a handle on the controls.

Isn't Street Fighter 2010 for the Super Nes?

Or am I remembering stuff wrong here...

Anyway. North And South. Delicious comedy strategy is delicious. 2 Players are a must.

Chip And Dale Rescue Rangers. Fun, fun platform game with good graphics. In the same vain you need to play Ducktales.

Its amazing how Capcom made so many awesome liscense games on the NES.

My favorites were always:

Super Mario Bros.
Super Mario Bros. 3
Duck Hunt
Bionic Commando (though I never got far...)
Contra (you kow the cheat!)
1943 (king of top-down shooters)
Blades of Steel (great with a friend, especially when you get in a fight)
Excitebike
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Arcade Game
Dr. Mario
Micro Machines (race through Cheerios mazes!)

It's really hard to beat an NES for simple, fun, pick-up-and-play games.

This thread is SERIOUSLY lacking in a few AWSOME NES games:

Ninja Gaiden 1, 2, and 3. Seriously people. How am -I- the first one to mention them. Yeah they're kinda hard, but they're NINJA GAIDEN.

The Guardian Legend. Awsome zelda/space shooter hybrid.

Video of the first space level and Zelda style gameplay. (Ignore the short Lufia intro)

You can also pick up the first Metal Gear which ain't that bad a game.

People have already said Zelda, Metriod, Castlevania, and of course Megaman. So I won't go there.

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles games have been mentioned, but for THE LOVE OF GOD do NOT get The first game. Just get TMNT 2: The Arcade game and up. Skip the first one.

Another vote for Great call on Little Nemo. Awsome game.

Street Fighter 2010 is indeed on the NES. I own it. (PS: It's suppose to take place in the Street Fighter universe, or alternate one, as the Ken in this game IS the Ken we all know and love. There is someone else in the game from the street fighter franchise that I won't spoil. This game is basically called the black sheep of the SF franchise. Not that it makes it a bad game.)

Others you may want to try out:

Whomp Em - Great little 'megaman' style game. See it Here.
Wizard and Warriors
Zanac - Space shooter
Totally Rad - This game is TOTALLY RAD! icon-waspy.gif Seriously though you fight a giant corn on the cob punk rocker. Yes you read that right.

As for RPGs:
Star Tropics
Star Tropics 2: Zoda's Revenge
Ghost Lion - Ghost Lion is an interesting beginer RPG. That only I seem to own. >_<

Course their is always Uninvited and ShadowGate if you like the point and click type adventures.

Random:
M.U.L.E. - Can't really describe this. But it's an interesting game, and has an AWSOME theme song.
Pools of Radiance - If you can find this gem. I say pick it up. Great D&D sytle game. I wish -I- had a copy. >_<

Despite his hate for the game, You should try it out. It's a lot different then the rest of the turtle games. Being made before the Arcade game, it had its own look and feel. Being a one player game is it's main drawback. You control one of the four turtles at a time, switching between the four on the pause menu, between an overworld map and a side scrolling adventure game. It's got some weird normal enemies that have nothing to do with the TMNT, but bosses tend to be taken from the old cartoon series, like Bebop, Rocksteady, Metalhead (robot turtle version),and the Technodrome. The Damn level is frustrating as heck, especially in the swimming bomb diffusion part. The last fight with Shredder can also be frustrating but is easy to finish with Don if you know how to. I actually prefer it to the straight arcade sidescrolling beat em' ups, due to the variety of gameplay.

Actually I don't hate the game. I even own it, though I only do because it was a buck and my collection looked weird without the first game there, but even so. I've played the game and seen the reviews for this game. It's pretty universally agreed that it sucks. Even the Angry Video Game Nerd reviewed it.

Of course you SHOULD try it out yourself, and if you find it for cheap enough, go ahead. But I wouldn't pay a lot of money for the game.

If you like strange little video game curios, sure. But it's hardly necessary. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/R.O.B.

Get a light gun and Advantage joystick first.
