What is this?! Some kind of reverse Atari Poop?!
Now, based on this and your introduction, I still have no idea what to expect. I like that. I'll always be surprised :)

I'm doing this because sharing is fun, but I don't want to win the game, since I know I'll never play it. Anyway, my favourite N64 game is probably something different every day, but today it is Doom 64. I don't care that it's an inferior port. All I know is that the game is utterly unplayable for me unless I remap almost every single button. I then set it to the hardest difficulty (Watch Me Die!) and have the craziest amount of fun I've ever had beating an N64 game.
Seriously though, the game is just broken unless you remap most of the buttons.

@Bigjoe91 To me, every single one of those games deserves enough votes for me to review them, but if they remain where they are, and honestly, even if they were to only get one or two more votes, they just will not make the cut.

@ericmhunter You're tired of waiting? Think of how I must feel! I can't wait to get started, but I still have over 15 people whom have promised to send me a list before the deadline that I'm waiting on. Who knows how many others are planning to participate and haven't let me know yet. To be fair though, I did say they have until July 31st :)

FINALLY! SOMEONE GETS IT!!!! Never agreed with the people that hate
this enemy (or any element of this game for that matter.) Even the
knockback. If you're good and know what you're doing, you use the
knockback to your advantage. It's a tool not hindrance. Anyway, the
Ninja Gaiden II Eagle is very likely the single greatest enemy (not
boss) in all of 8-bit gaming.

@JoshuaCaleb75Unfortunately, Noby Noby Boy had a
tonne of potential, but ultimately did virtually nothing with it. It'll
entertain you for 20 minutes a couple times, and then you'll never play
it again. I was so disappointed, especially considering how much I love
the Katarami games. I really recommend you spend your money on something else :(

Nice lists! I also enjoyed seeing someone else choose a Maniac Mansion tune.
Congrats on the anniversary, Woodyman.
I enjoy things.

@NintendoLegend Frankly, I'll be disappointed if you don't.
@rizzardcore Look at the name of the cat who has also left a comment here ;)
@Bigjoe91 I wish I could tell that it really was the worst pronunciation of my name I've ever heard, but I'd be lying if I did. Even Quebeckers have trouble with my last name!
This game looks really good. Graphics reminded me more of Zelda II than the ones you mentioned (though they do resemble those too). Definitely going to try to check it out.
Oh, and "Randy" is probably Randy Rhoads, Ozzy and Quiet Riots' guitarist (died in a plane crash, I believe). Damn, I really need to share this with every heavy metal lover I know.

If you are interested, please submit your resume in one of the two options given in the job posting. Also, at least 1/2 of GMZ's founders is a Sega fanboy. I won't mention which half, but you should maybe watch what you say.
I will admit that being Canadian does not hurt your chances.

"90s were a dividing time. In those days you were Pokemon or Digimon,

Mortal Kombat, if you disagree you’re wrong." I don't think you ever written anything I've agreed with more :)

You're absolutely right. I have brought great shame to 1 More Castle. Would some form of ritual suicide atone for my sins? Harakiri, perhaps?
Just to clarify, I'm talking about the life of the source, not the journalist. My sources rely on me to protect their anonymity.

@majorkong No self-respecting journalist would ever reveal his sources when it would put their life in danger.
@Aggro Sky I hope he does. Good publicity for 1MC :)
@NintendoLegend I just love how so early in the history of the super hero genre, the whole thing gets turned upside-down by this game. Instead of a insanely superior character that can basically do anything imaginable (thus making the game easy and boring), you get a game where the main character can do virtually nothing at all (amping up the fun and difficulty).

@NintendoLegend @Aggro Sky @Atsinganoi @Paul Potvin My first car was a 2006 Carolla, which I bought a little less than 3 years ago.
I'll be honest. When I found that revolting Travolta pic, the article was already finished. I shoe-horned (or sock pianoed) the last two paragraphs (well, paragraph and final standalone sentence) just so I could have an excuse to use it in the article.
1 year, 3 months ago on Atari Poop – Enduro
@Paul Potvin Just so no one thinks you're trying to follow my ridiculous lead with this comment, I feel I need to point out that what you just said is actually at least mostly true. I've seen that is was a 280ZX, and you could win one as part of a "Race to Riches" sweepstakes, but not that it made specifically for the game. I didn't know about the hidden picture though.
@MegaSilverX1 Yeah, I don't even like paying that much for a console...even a new one.
I've never wanted to play a VB game before, but this one just might convince me to get an emulator to check it out.

Bonne fête 1MC! Thinking back to when I first pitched what became Atari Poop and how I was 100% certain I wouldn't get picked, it seems like it's been much longer than a year. What a long strange trip it's been. Eagerly looking forward to the next years.
1 year, 3 months ago on Happy 1st birthday, 1 More Castle!
Interesting article :)
As soon as I saw the word "Insmouse", I thought "I wonder if that's how the Japanese say Innsmouth and, if so, is this H.P. Lovecraft-related?" It turns out the game is based on a cheap Japanese TV movie (according to Wikipedia anyway) which was based on Lovecraft's The Shadow Over Innsmouth. Anyway, the game actually looks like it might be fun to play. I can't say that for any other VB game though.
@ericmhunter @NintendoLegend Don't you recognize Ray Liotta when you see him?!

About half-way through, while enjoying this article, I suddenly stopped to ask myself "Hey, where's the poop?" Then, the very next paragraph totally brought said poop.
Also, I'd show this article to my wife, but I'm afraid thast GIF will give her seizures.
Edit: If any of you saw the mess of typos in my first comment, blame my wife harassing me to hurry up. She's even doing it right now as I type this. But she is so amazing, nothing can compare to her amazigness :)
Edit #2: My wife totally added that last bit.
Edit blah: I, I mean, she added nothing cause she's amazazing :)

@Paul Potvin FFFUUUUUUUUUUU... I totally meant to have a section on how the can is played with a special, sold-seperately, controller (http://moonbeam.free.fr/Forum/Atari2600_KidsController_07_BoxFront.jpg) and how that should teach future/current parents that having kids means you're gonna have to waste money on all kinds of useless crap simply because it's "for kids".
I can't believe I forgot to add it. Daaaaaaaaaaaaaammit! I blame my kids and how they haven't let me sleep more than 6 hours (6 hours interrupted repeatedly) in one night over the past three years. So pissed at myself right now.

@Bigjoe91 I think the only one in Québec was decommissioned last year, so you'll likely need to come to New Brunswick or Ontario...or you could just castrate yourself.
I think this is the first time I've voted for Bailey, or at least the first time in a long time.
Speaking of Bailey, your RPG complaint took the words right out of my mouth. The only bad thing about them is how few there were. It reminds me of my reaction to people calling a game a "Zelda and clone" and implying it's a bad thing. I much rather would've played Zelda II - 2 or Link to the Past 2, 3, 4, and 5 than all those Mega Man games I can barely tell apart.

@Bigjoe91 Typical Québecois, thinking the whole world revolves around you and your problems. Just because your mafia built bridges, tunnels, and buildings are collapsing, doesn't mean the rest of the world needs a video game to tell them having stuff built by the mafia is a bad idea. It's just common sense. Still you have a point, Mario's Cement Factory might be the best Mario game for Quebecers, but for the rest of us normal folks, it's still Mario Bros.

@MegaSilverX1 That's what I thought. I guess "Comments Pierre" should just follow "Articles Pierre's" lead, but most of the time, the stuff "Articles Pierre" writes is just too ridiculous for "Comments Pierre" to continue with.
I probably sound crazy now. I'm not two people...or I am?
