Id guess it does not loop, the WR is apparently just over 3 million, while your first place sits at around 2.6.... just a guess of course.

The only game I think we should remove is chicken shift, and that's just based on the fact I don't find it fun.

I may try it later in Full Mode to see what happens after you beat it. If it loops, I don't see why it couldn't be in.

Re: 2013 Retro Uprising Gaming Champ

Last time I played AVP through it didn't loop but there could be a setting that allows it to.

As you said Aliens definitely does. Love that game.

Re: 2013 Retro Uprising Gaming Champ

One thing for sure would be a topic that updates the standings every week or so, this should bump it in the "new posts" too. That would serve as a good reminder, and also inform newbies of it in case they want to jump in midway.

Look good to me. Can anyone eliminate 2.

I don't really consider those "sports" games.

Looks good. Does anyone know if it is likely that we will max out the score?
There is also this Cyberball Genesis. Not the best football game but it is the only one I know of that has a score system that will work for this.

They do loop but they have all been beaten here before. I think games that haven't been beaten before, like X-Men are much more exciting. When you beat X-Men we were all amazed and rooting for you. When you beat AVP we will all be expecting it. Different level of excitement. If the second loop doesn't increase in difficulty then it is just a marathon.

I'm not familiar with Flipper Slipper, but why would something being hard disqualify it?
The difficulty increases each level. It quickly gets to the point where it is probably impossible to play. There wont be a big point spread.

Quote:
Super Bagman is okay, but also can be heavily farmed in certain spots (legally on a timer). This could make the game boring, but I'm not 100% against it.
There are a lot of games to choose from for this genre. We should be able to find something that doesn't have any problems. Dig Dug? Burger Time? Frogger?

Re: 2013 Retro Uprising Gaming Champ

I like the list so far. In the undecideds list I would I would pick Star Force as the additional shooter. I also think at least 1 of the racing games should move to the final list.

I appreciate that. It was a fun run, but if a game loops I don't see how that would be different from something like Frogger that is also the same levels over and over. AVOP is pretty tough too, so not everyone will beat it. I haven't played this in 3-4 years, so I don't know if it gets tougher in successive loops, but it's a popular game. Not sure why the rule would be applied to Beat-em-ups, but not other genres.

Frogger?
I like this option.

Recap
I think this is sufficient. I wouldn't think it's your responsibility to constantly remind people of the standings when it's right on the contest page for anyone who cares to look. I had almost no time at all last year (I literally gamed for only 4-5 days including the last 1.5 days when I actually played in the GOTY compeition), but I would check now and then to see the standings. It's not hard to do.

This is a good idea and something different.

I like this idea, and it's a very hard game, so would be tough to beat.

Not my favorite game either. However, I think it should stay, as it is tough and works well.

I like Frogger, but if people are okay with a bit of legal leeching, Bagman could still work.

Re: 2013 Retro Uprising Gaming Champ

Star Force loops so there really is no end. There is a 1 Million point bonus but I've never made far enough into the game to get it.

Are you talking about the NES or another version? I thought there was an end in the NES one. I may be wrong, though.

@ Kong: Are we talking about different versions of AVP? I'm talking about the Coin-Op one. As far as I can see, no one on RU has beaten it before. The High Score table says "All", but that gives you that message once you get to a certain level (not if you finish the game). This is the one I mean: Alien vs Predator - Arcade/Coin-Op - Score Board

Comments
  
  The coin op version loops for sure. Don't know about NES.

Oh, that was the problem. I assumed "All" meant you had beat the game. That is stupid. Problem solved, we can use AVP then.


  1. Arcade - Bagman

  21. Racing or Sports -

Remove
Rail Shooter - Dynamite Duke - Arcade/Coin-Op and Multi-Directional Shooter - Smash TV - Arcade/Coin-Op just to keep it closer to 20 games and have less shooting games. I think removing one more genre to get it down to 20 would be good too.

Run'N Jump - a new suggestion please. Let's keep this genre for sure. Think Super Mario Bros. but with unlimited scoring.

Racing - Lethal Crash Race - Arcade/Coin-Op or
Enduro Racer - Arcade/Coin-Op or Turbo Out Run - Arcade/Coin-Op or Continental Circus - Arcade/Coin-Op or nothing

Sports -
Heavy Smash: Future Sports - Arcade/Coin-Op or Cyberball or nothing.

Run'N Gun -
Wild West COWBoys of Moo Mesa - Arcade/Coin-Op or Gun Smoke - Arcade/Coin-Op

A couple people should play Battlantis and comment. I have the high score and can only get to about level 3. If all of the top scores get stuck around level 3 or 5 then it is going to be boring and have a small score spread. If a few people can destroy my current high score then it will be interesting.

A couple people should play Dune 2: The Building of a Dynasty and comment. The score resets every level so you have to play a couple dummy levels before reaching an advanced level where you can get a good high score. Besides that one flaw the game is perfect for this but that is a big flaw. I am also ok with making a new rule that we will add all points from all levels to create a total score. This is a superior scoring system for this type of game but more work for the mods. It would also affect other games with similar score systems such as California Games.

Does anyone know if there is any problems with Quiz & Dragons. I know trivia games often have a problem of no randomization or repeating questions.

Re: 2013 Retro Uprising Gaming Champ

Quiz and Dragons is fine, it has a crap ton of questions as far as I can tell and randomizes them pretty well. I've played it a lot and kept getting new questions far more than I got repeat ones.

Re: 2013 Retro Uprising Gaming Champ

Battlantis seems alright. I have never played it before and got 20k on my first go. Crap score, but if I played it enough 74k doesnt seem too hard to beat.

It's not hard to do.
I meant setting up something automated, just something to bump the contest page periodically.

I dont think Dune 2: The Building of a Dynasty should be included or the reasons mentioned in Kong's above post.

What about this?

I am also ok with making a new rule that we will add all points from all levels to create a total score.

Re: 2013 Retro Uprising Gaming Champ

Don't we then have to create that rule for every game using the same or similar scoring system?

Re: 2013 Retro Uprising Gaming Champ

To me that is too much extra work especially in a long playthrough. I think Dune 2 should be out.

Re: 2013 Retro Uprising Gaming Champ

If Dune 2 goes (which I'm kind of in favor for it leaving) I suggest replacing it with a game that screams retro. One of the following coin-op games:

Space Invaders
Asteroids
Centipede
Donkey Kong Junior
Frogger
Pac Man
Donkey Kong
Burgertime
Q*bert
Ms. Pac Man
Galaga
Dig Dug

Since you will be one of the ones doing the extra work, I will leave the rule as is and veto the game from the contest.

I'll work on making it easier to score these types of games this year and it can be used next year.

We really need a good SMB type game.

Re: 2013 Retro Uprising Gaming Champ

Karnov looks too easy to max out at 999,999. Several people have done it at TG and MARP so I assume at least a couple of people would here.

Re: 2013 Retro Uprising Gaming Champ

The Arcade Karnov is one of those games where once you learn what to do and what items to use exactly where, it becomes really easy. Until that point it will seem like an extremely hard game.

I had friends that could max out the score quite handily at the corner store by my house when I was younger so I imagine we definitely have gamers here who could do it already.
