Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    let me put it this way: I just about never play games to absolute 100% completion

    to date, I have done it with three games: sonic 1 and 2 on the genesis, and super mario galaxy

    and completing the former two at 100% just meant beating them with all the emeralds

    apparantly it's actually almost done, but they're not releasing it until 2010

    Small tips to help gently resolve or prevent gamer widowing:

    - Set a date night! It's much easier to be engaged with only each other when you're out of the house. Having a simple date night at least once a week makes a big difference. You can take turns deciding on what you will do on your date night so both parties participate in meaningful activities for the other person. (remember, she did learn to play Halo for you... I think you can manage a pottery class or a museum every once and a while)
    - Be honest about your timing. There are times where GG do need their gamer's attention for a moment and have to interrupt their game play. Most of the time the Gamer will either completely ignore them without making a sound or give a negative response to show their annoyance. GGs deserve more then that. They make you food, keep things tighty, give you love, and sometimes do your laundry. If you can't pause the game right then and there, at least give her a real time estimate of when you can be mentally available - and then STICK TO IT. Don't say "in a minute" if you don't mean "in a minute." It's ok to say "I'll have this boss beat in approx 12 minutes and then we can chat." Be respectful. Formulate full sentences and look her in the eye, when you can. GGs know all to well that infamous "gamer minute." One minute can mean fifteen. GGs appreciate when their Gamer polightly gives them an honest estimate they stick to. That way they don't feel like you think of them as a pest.
    - Prioritize your arrival from work. GGs know you've had a long day and you want to hop on your game right away. Try to resist that urge and give her at least 30 minutes. Have a seat, relax, chit chat. It wont hurt. She'll be more willing to let you be if you do.

    fucking goddammit

    really if your SO does not take priority over your video games she really isn't that important to you and you shouldn't be that important to her either

    Maybe I'm missing something, but this doesn't look that hard. I can see it might take a few tries to learn the locations of all the bombs and work out an optimal route, but once you've got that down it should be pretty straightforward. You've got ample health, at least 30 seconds more than you strictly need, and the timing on the electric gates isn't unreasonable.

    it always looks easy

    it wasn't

    plus the swim controls were pretty bad

    plus most people playing it when it came out were little kids

    You also have to remember that you don't heal between levels, so the fact that that guy got to that point with 4 full health turtles means he was rocking before he got there.

    That Battletoads level has a warp to a later level - just before you crash into a wall. You can see it in the video, I think. Battletoads is sadistically NES-hard.

    The dam level in TMNT is easy if you know exactly where to go and if you can manage the controls. They're not very good.

    Did any of you actually finish either of those games? I can't remember how far I got in Battletoads, and in TMNT I got into the technodrome and really hit the wall.
