and TMNT Turtles in Time Re-Shelled PlayStation 3 down, not nearly as fun as I remember thinking it was years ago. Hope Dot Emu works their magic on the new one for sure.

Just beat TMNT IV (SNES) on Hard, solo! This has been something I've wanted to do for a very long time. I remember trying it a few times as a kid but could never make it further than Starbase, usually dying at the Krang fight. It's been on my to-do list, but I never made time for it. It was so satisfying to finally complete it! This game actually does a good job of increasing the difficulty from Normal to Hard. There are more enemies throughout the levels (and more of the more difficult enemies), plus the bosses have more difficult attack patterns. There also seemed to be less pizzas throughout the levels, and enemies seemed to deal more damage, but it's been a little while since the last time I played on Normal so I can't say for sure. I didn't think Slash could be any more annoying, but somehow he is on Hard mode. Also, the Shredder fight is ridiculous! He moves so fast, the window to actually get a hit in on him is almost non-existent. Plus his green attack is so brutal (insta-death) and has way too large of a hit window.

I'm considering going for a 2nd clear, but don't really feel like playing re-shelld again since I just played it last year. How does the arcade version compare to the SNES version? Better/worse? Easier/harder? Any notable differences?

The SNES version has additional levels and turns the surfing stages into Bonus Rounds.

The arcade version is easier in the sense you can just spam quarters. There's also no Easy Mode Mockery and you get the true ending, regardless of how you play.

There's still a week left in the month to beat Shredder down if you haven't already. Let me know when you do, or if I've missed your post.

Let's start taking nominations for the April Game of the Month. We'll start voting once we have five games or on the 28th; whichever comes first.

I'm newer here and after looking up all of the prior 3 years worth of titles am curious as to what platforms are generally considered as Retro?
I summed up the selections from '18 til this month and counted titles that I knew were on multiple systems accordingly. Here are the results:
Nintendo Entertainment System 11
Super Nintendo 6
Nintendo 64 1
Game Boy 1
Game Boy Advance 1
Nintendo DS 1

Sega Genesis 8
Sega CD 3
Sega Saturn 2

PlayStation 3
PlayStation 2 2

Microsoft Xbox 1
NEC TurboGrafx-16 3

Seems like PlayStation 2 Microsoft Xbox Nintendo DS are the most recent generation essentially. Also been more heavily focused on NES, SNES, Genesis with 25 games on those systems and only 18 on other 10 consoles.
That makes sense with I'd guess the general age of our members and those consoles being largely considered the retro systems overall, without getting into the next older group of Atari and so forth.

I generally lump everything before the previous gen into "retro", so all the way up to the Wii for Nintendo. I could see going 2 gens back though, either way Gamecube is definitely retro at this point IMO.

I nominate A Link to the Past. I'm itching to re-play it after finally re-playing A Link Between Worlds.

It doesn't really matter. But weirdly I consider Saturn Retro but PS1 not retro. More just about the feel of the systems. And I guess the fact that Sega no longer makes consoles.

This is so Retro. 1980's pinball through a virtual pinball machine. This is my new toy I'm in love with.

@Scott I would consider the GC as retro as it's in the same generation as PS2 and Xbox, I had is listed in my post too, but since this thread hadn't picked a game for it I removed it.

@Scott No worries - I was mainly seeking to both learn and show what consoles have been favored by this thread, spurred on by the back-to-back selection of SNES games the past 2 months.

I also was curious if nominating a GameCube or 360 title would be considered Retro.

I honestly wasn't even aware of that, I can only imagine how much cool new stuff they might add.
I gotta look this up, thanks for that.
