That's why I was wondering.  With all the hacks, it should take a fraction of the time it normally would take to complete the game.

Yeah, it was a LOT faster but with all the starting and stopping and I can't really narrow it down beyond that guess.

Played some Cliffhanger today for Sega CD. Was messing around with some hacks and made videos of both Snowboarding levels that I've never beaten.. and 99% of the other people who've tried lol.
It's easy now :p

Played through Earthworm Jim SE today for Sega CD. Testing out new hacks and made a video of how easy it was to get through the 2nd submarine level w/ infinite air and damage :D




Edit
Finally saw the ending for this awesome game and uploaded it

Just played through Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire on Nintendo 64.


One of my favorite games 21 years ago and I still love it. I was on easy difficulty so didn't get to 'see' if Dash made it lol.
That Skyhook battle is one of the best ever and ramming the core with Outrider is a blast (watching it explode)
With infinite lives how can you go wrong :p


Man, what a fantastic game!! 8) 8) 8)

Cool.  The book certainly was great and it is amazing to think of how much media was made for this story.  There's even a soundtrack.

Spent the last 2 evenings playing Star Fox 64.


Had forgotten how nice this game looks. I could do without the farm animal wing men and their ridiculous dialog but was a fun revisit. Andross, the final boss, was way too hard initially. Couldn't remember how to kill the brain w/ eyes version of him and looked it up on Youtube. Finally offed him and followed Star Fox's dad out of that maze. Probably been 20 years since I last played. Outstanding game 8)

Star Fox 64 is a great game but I've never finished it, good job :)

I fired up my TG 16 today and played Blazing Lazers, Mr. Heli, Galaga 88, and Ordyne. Lots of shooting was done!

That sounds great. My TG 16 is boxed away somewhere but sure need to dig it out and play some titles.
Fantastic system I don't give near enough attention to. 8)

I've been playing the Lion King for sega mega drive/genesis. Not sure if this really counts as retro but been playing street fighter alpha 3 on GBA and got my Wii out and been playing super smash bros brawl.

Micro machines on the cdi, a game I love on other systems but it runs slow on the cdi. This makes it easier for newer players but for me I prefer the speed and falling off the edge lmfao.

I think, by now, the GBA is probably retro.  For some folks the PSOne is also retro, which makes sense if the Dreamcast is also retro.
