So in the period of one month, I’ve managed to cover 47 video game entries in total. It’s a decent result, though not really satisfying in the slightest. I’ve been having some issues, both with making some of the games work and completing them. Apart form that, I’ve been having a hard time dealing with some problems that my PC machine has been experiencing of lately. It’s nothing too grand, but I would probably focus on acquiring a better toaster this summer. I’ve also had some health issues myself, but again, they are nothing to be quacking all about.
While the marathon lasted, I also started working on a game. An actual game, that I am thinking about potentially selling, once it’s done being developed. The reason for me to do that is because I had an idea and an opportunity, which were further supported by a certain people who are willing to give me a hand in the project. Teamwork is great, even if sometimes the quality is not as clean as a bride’s dress in a ketchup factory.
So for a time being, I will post updates on twitter regarding the game development. In addition, I would like to finish the marathon, even though the initial results are already in. I’ll probably combine both of these and try to be done by the time my birthday comes, as I have special plans for that day and onward.
I still postponed some planned posts for the site, but surprises are meant to be surprising. Have you changed your socks recently? You should do that!
For twenty-six days I’ve been playing some of the “worst” games that were ever made.I was planning to cover over forty-five new titles.Fifteen of them were never even touched.Five were dropped due to various reasons, mostly because I could not run them on my machine.I managed to beat only seventeen titles from the rest and fail at the remaining eight.Overall, I’m quite happy with the results!I managed to clear the E.T. game and “Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon”, which were some of my main priorities for this event. I’m sad that I couldn’t find time for certain titles, like “Friday the 13th” for the NES, but what can I say – My life has been pretty busy lately.
The games that I managed to clear are:
Aqua Teen Hunger Force: Worst Game Ever
E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial [Atari 2600]
Family Dog [SNES]
Felix the Cat 3 [NES]
Link: The Faces of Evil [Philips CD-i]
Mario 4: Space Odyssey [Sega Genesis]
Revenge of the Sunfish
Rex Ronan: Experimental Surgeon [SNES]
Super Donkey Kong ’99 [Sega Genesis]
Super Maruo [NES]
Titanic 2005 [NES]
Valis SD [Sega Genesis]
Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon [Philips CD-i]
So there you have it! Tremble at the ending screens of these “horrible” creations!Happy Halloween everyone! I hope you are enjoying yourself and having a great time! I certainly could have done better for this event, but hey! – There is always next year!
Last year for Halloween, I made a special event where I decided to pick a game that’s considered to be horrible in every aspect and play it all the way through. That game was “Bubsy 3D”. A terrible game indeed, with a fame that’s a bit … undeserved. From my experience, things could have been way, way worse.
AND NOW THEY WILL BE!
Instead of making a new special event this year, for Halloween, I’ve decided to put up a brand new volume! I’ll focus on playing not just one, but many, “shitty” video games, from various generations and for various consoles! A running marathon starting from today ’till the end of October.Lab. Room 19 rules will still be intact, enhancing the whole experience even further! My overall goal is to clear as many titles as I can, capture as many end game screens and make the spookiest Halloween poster out of them!
I’ll still make posts about other games,perhaps not too many,as I would mainly focus on the marathon.
Onward! Until my brain becomes mashed eggs!
Updates and score for the titles will be posted on my twitter account.The final poster will be published both here and on twitter.
