Hmm...I might have to get in on this. There are a few games on the Classic that I've never played/beaten, and most of the games I HAVE played, I'd love to play again. It will have to wait until after Odyssey though, my game time is booked until then. DiamondDave wrote:

The entire world changes to that AFTER you get 100%, and you can't change it back.

Oh! Well, that's easy enough. Double clear then!whitefire wrote:

Keep your eyes open on the site, may find someone with an extra or an extra-extra. If a deal I'm working on for a Euro model goes through, I'd be happy to sell off the SNES. Though that does mean I'd have to basically double-clear Mario World twice. Eh, worth it.

Seeing credits roll. Seriously, no one who grew up in this era would have said any different back in the day.

For Mario Kart 64, I wouldn't have ever considered just beating all cups on 50cc to be "beating the game". 50/100cc are easy beginner modes just to get you ready for the real thing on 150cc.

I don't remember what it entailed, but back in the day (before internet) the benchmark was always a credit roll. Nobody denied you beat Super Metroid because you didn't get the "best ending", just like no one considered you didn't beat Street Fighter II if you beat it on level one. Anything else is a modern POV.
If Walmart ships my order and doesn't cancel on me I'd be in for fun. Not looking hopeful as it's supposed to be here tomorrow and hasn't shipped so getting pissed.
I could have gotten one off Amazon treasure truck but I didn't because I had an order and didn't want to be greedy....

Next time, be greedy! You could always sell it here to help out a GTZ'er!

Would have also been an hour drive each way probably. If I knew I wasn't getting one I'd have done it for sure.
Still hoping I get one eventually, I even talked wife into finally trying the games and now I'm stuck just waiting.
How would one complete the Tetris Attack?

This is how I feel about somebody using the Star World to quickly beat Super Mario World for a challenge like this.

My SNES Classic shipped from walmart so add me to the list

Yeah kind of. I never really played it much back in the day but I did witness my older cousin beat it without dying and without using any bombs. I wanted to emulate that this time around and managed to beat it without using any bombs but I did end up dying once or twice. Still a surprisingly fun game but the graphics made it kind of difficult to tell how far the enemies were away from you so aiming was really hard in 3rd person mode. There were also parts in the last level where you would see enemy fire before you would see the enemy which kind of sucked.
Next is Secret of Mana, I've already sunk an hour into the game.
1. Star Fox.
Beat it on central path and got about 93% overall score and used one earned credit.
Playing Mana now as well
Just redeemed my freebie site points for South Park as well. If it's half as funny as first one it will be a blast.

Save states are good, but if you just treat it like a regular SNES game once you save you can quit out and just start it "fresh" and load. I only use save states when I'm between save points, or when cheating RNG-based bonus challenges.

You can beat it in like 20 minutes with the shortcuts. I just went back and beat most of my favorite SNES games right before they rumored then announced the SNES Classic.
I have multiple 100% clears, including earlier this year.
I remember perfect running SPO (no losses) as a kid. Pretty tough, but still easier than beating Tyson/Dream.
SNES Classic modification is now a must, if not for game additions, then to allow for button combinations to get back to the menu. Like Nintendo shoulda done. image
It's almost here!
edit: Oops, I lied. it's out.
Hack at your own risk, but if you do, hack and have fun!
I'm gonna wait at least another 1-2 weeks for any bugs to be ironed out
welp, we'll see how this goes, but i'm in.
Finished Super Metroid, Mega Man X and Zelda so far
Also went through King of Dragons and Final Fight Guy today, but I suppose those don't count
Mine seems to be working fine, but I've mostly been playing SoM which is not very button press intensive or split second reaction required gameplay
Speaking of Son, I had forgotten how much grinding there is to keep weapon and magic levels up, fatigue is setting in a bit
Finally made the board.image
I must have not had Geno in the fight the last time I made it to Smithy; Geno Boost kinda breaks most encounters, other than bullcrap status effects and instant death moves.
My Son and I finished Kirby Super Star last night. I think we will move on to Super Mario World next.
I don't think you'll need to wait long (assuming you are actively looking, not just waiting on online notifications), I saw 8 sitting at a Target late this morning. Sorry, I don't have the funds or means to help out in your quest.
