[MiniPhalla] NEStalgia -- GAME OVER

Remember the games of yesteryear? Ever long for the days when your achievements weren't measured in....well, in "Achievements", but rather in the sense of satisfaction gleaned from your mastery of that final boss fight?

Well, today is your day.


Welcome to NEStalgia MiniPhalla, where you can relive your memories of an elegant console for a more civilized age.

NES_controller.jpg

Standard Phalla rules apply: no screenshots, send me the link to any proboards, ask for clarifications in orange, don't talk/listen to dead people, etc. You know the drill.

Now, what makes this MiniPhalla unique? I'm glad you asked.

Each day, you'll vote in yellow for a classic NES game to play the following day. Depending on the game selected, different events will trigger and have an impact on the way the MiniPhalla is played that day.

What games may you choose from? Another excellent question, you're so smart.

I'm not going to pretend to have covered every great NES game here. Primarily, I selected games from those I played in my childhood, or those I am at least vaguely familiar with in some other way. This may or may not include your favorites; if it doesn't, feel free to design your own NEStalgia Mini. ;-)

But enough about that. Take a look (in no particular order) at the library of games available to you!

    Can we change our yellow vote at all during signups?

    Because I want to do everything in my power to ensure either North & South, Basewars or Rampart wins this.

    Yeah, feel free to change the yellow vote.

    EDIT: The yellow vote will close as soon as the player list is full -- I'll be sending out Role PMs at that time, or possibly even starting before the list is full, in order to have minimal conflict with Neville's upcoming Whedonverse game.
