Now that you have seen this Bass XO, you must send it to five other Bass XOs or BassXO will come to you in a week and then you too will be BassXO.

8ass X÷ has hijacked this conversation.

@  Bass X0 : (12 June 2021 - 03:37 AM)

Its Bass X0. I named myself after my three favourite Mega Man characters - Bass, X and Zero. I did consider going with Vile Bass X0, but that would have been going too far.

@  repowers : (11 June 2021 - 11:29 PM)

Bass XO has been trying to reach you about your car's extended warranty.

@  Echowarrior : (11 June 2021 - 09:25 PM)

Do not taunt Bass XO.

@  wonko the sane? : (11 June 2021 - 09:02 PM)

Please consult a technician before using Bass XO. Do not operate Bass XO while consuming alcohol.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 June 2021 - 04:48 PM)

Nine out of ten doctors recommend Bass XO. The last doctor is on my list.

@  Dekafox : (11 June 2021 - 01:51 PM)

Bass XO is available at these fine retailers.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 June 2021 - 02:01 AM)

Bass XO is not to be confused with Bay Sexo.

@  Fenix Twilight : (10 June 2021 - 08:38 PM)

It's good to be back, after that outage I think I'll try to post more.

@  Steevy Maximus : (10 June 2021 - 12:16 PM)

When I googled 'space bridge' I was disappointed. Maybe in a hundred years.

Bass XO is backward compatible with the Sega Master System.

@  Donocropolis : (09 June 2021 - 05:37 AM)

Bass XO has 9" long, dagger-like teeth and a 12,000 lb. bite force

@  repowers : (08 June 2021 - 07:26 PM)

Bass XO doesn't feel pain. He can't be reasoned with!

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 June 2021 - 02:57 PM)

Bass XO has no known weaknesses.

@  Nevermore : (08 June 2021 - 06:15 AM)

Base XO is definitely unstoppable.

@  Donocropolis : (07 June 2021 - 04:30 PM)

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.

Probably not. I haven't heard much good things about old R.O.B. Unless you just want it for collection reasons.

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.
