"The now" can be overrated sometimes. Have you seen "stranger things" yet on Netflix? That show is so effing good and it totally reminds me of olden times 😉

I liked TRU and damn right I'm going to miss it! Even as an adult that was a fun place to go. But then again I have nephews and love things like games and legos and Disney and collectible stuff.

Also doing a tech roll out of a throw is an achievement on the 360 Streets of Rage game I think. Maybe I should learn it just for that lol. Yeah and I did watch your clip of teching out of a throw nice timing sir!

Back in January that's what everyone kept saying. I thought it was easy too.

Oh okay I didn't watch the video but yeah I never bothered with the tech after getting thrown. I just stopped getting thrown by them. Just waited for one of them to jump attack and hit her with a back kick. It does take awhile but it's how I did it easiest.

Did you hate Arrow Flash as much as everybody else here swears they did?

All that matters is you passed it playing how you wanted.

I don't know what you mean by "tech throw" you mean where you hit-stun them first? I just used the back kick as they jumped at me. It takes timing though.

I never said the whole game was "easy" I just had an easier time with the twins and the elevator that everyone else was saying they kept dying on.

There's a guy who uses a method and can beat the game without taking one hit of damage it's kinda insane. But it does use the hit stun into throws too. I started doing it before I saw that video anyways but it's too repetitive I can't just keep doing that forever I'm too um high strung I guess? I also didn't know you could frame trap bosses in that game either it's beyond what I imagined.

The twins for me were way easier than the final boss actually. I never figured out a good strategy to beat him I just got lucky enough to have enough lives left by the time I reached him.

That is really sad. There was still a few Kmart stores around and even when you went inside they were just a mess. At least no matter how bad things were Sears and Toys R Us always looked like they kept the stores clean and properly stocked.

Kmart was just like whatever, like no one who worked in them cared if stuff was thrown all around.

I definitely get that sentiment. I always get sad when these big businesses have to go out of business. But this one especially. I know part of it is Amazon too but I do kinda like Amazon. I will miss toys r us for sure. 😞

Isn't madden 17 from a year and a half ago? I guess it's still cool since it's brand new though. Is going to a Toys R Us now as depressing as I'm imagining? Because it seems like it would be.

I still have trouble with the second boss. But then again I've been playing it everytime as the spaceship and I rarely use Arrow Flash anyways. I think the robot can just Arrow Flash right into the bosses and kill them right? Kinda like Ninja Gaiden 1 with the spinslash?

So I can't remember where everything is everytime yet. Since I've only played it here and there. I think it's doable I died against the second boss today and lost all my power ups but was still able to beat it with just the first gun. It took all my lives but I think once the patterns are remembered it's possible to beat this game without Arrow Flash.

I never got to see him playing it. I've been playing this evening but I'm trying to get all the icons on the first playthrough.

So I might be awhile with it.

Yeah I think that's the only jealousy I have over people who play certain games on pc is the fact that there is more freedom to just add things to games. I hope to play Morrowind again I never did finish it. I was to busy leveling up my characters and exploring non essential quests. I never was able to get into Oblivion in the same way but I have more time to myself now so I guess I should start playing through some older adventures 😉

Morrowind was just such a great game to explore. It's very alive almost. Like you could almost imagine an alien planet that looks like that.

I'm not just talking about the debug menu from Shining Force 2.

I'm talking about Easter Eggs the developers left for people to stumble upon. I think Suikoden got the idea from Shining Force to have so many playable characters. You're supposed to find all the characters in Suikoden so why not try to find them all in Shining Force?

I actually did beat Streets of Rage. In January. I actually expected that elevator to be the most difficult part of the game the way you guys kept talking about it.

It was one of the easier things to pass. I even did the elevator 3 times in a row on the 360 just to beat the speed run time on there.

Oh you mean like how I do with game of the month? These guys would never bother, it's too much time yada yada yada. The only two besides you and I that I could see doing that are @DefaultGen and @sharif

And only if they really like the game.

I used to find secrets in the first two Shining Force games like hidden characters and hidden treasure chests. (Hint use the birdmen during battles)

That's the robot Arrow Flash. I never even use the robot I always transform, but I guess the other Arrow Flash is too big for a little icon.

This conversation will probably end up on his personal YouTube podcast where he interviews himself and talks about game trading and how to master the art of it.

I've often hoped it would too so everyone can see all the games if they don't check the thread often. Sometimes I need to think for a few days before I vote anyways.
