How old are the 2 previous winner now? Are they still alive? Do they still have their treasures?
Because if atari was to relaunch a new competition with Waterworld and Airworld, well, how could we be sure that the two previous winners in the early 80's would participate to the finals for the sword?
I They must be more than 50 by now and probably don't give any shit to video games...

He didn't actually review the three Castlevanias on the Game Boy...
I think he should someday make some follow ups to the castlevania serie, such as he did for the Back to the Future Game. Even if it take's him several years between each review sequel
Castlevania Part V: The Game Boy
*Castlevania II: Belmont's Revenge
Castlevania Part VI: The GBA
*Circle of the Moon
*Harmony of Dissonance
*Aria of Sorrow
Castlevania Part VII: the DS (for this one, he should wait a couple of years untill the DS becomes a retro console)
*Dawn of Sorrow
*Portrait of Ruin
*Order of Ecclesia
Castlevania Part VIII: A Follow up in the 3D games
*Lament of Innocence on the PS2
*Curse of Darkness on the PS2
*And eventually, sticking at the end the Lords of Shadow on the PS3/Xbox360
Castlevania Part IX: Castlevania 1 Remakes:
*Vampire Killer on the MSX
*Haunted Castle on Arcade
*Castlevania Chronicles (both on the Sharp X68000 and PS1)
*And finaly concluding with the fact that Super Castlevania was definitely the best C1 remake.
Castlevania Part X: Other remakes
*The Dracula X Chronicles (remake of the Rondo of Bloo)
*Legacy of Darkness (remake of Castlevania 64)
*Castlevania: The Adventure Rebirth (remake of Castlevania Adventure)
Castlevania Part XI: Japanese exclusive games and spin-offs
*Rondo of Blood on the PC-Engine
*Kid Dracula on the Game Boy
*Castlevania Judgement on the Wii
*Harmony of Despair on the current dowloadable Platforms
And if the nerd can possibly manage to get his hand on those:
*Akumajō Special: Boku Dracula-kun on the Famicom
*Castlevania The Arcade (a japanese exclusive arcade game)
*Order of Shadows on the mobile phones. (I know, mobile phones games shouldn't exist)
That would be the ultimate Castlevania review ever made!

The big question I have with this movie, is how it's going to be released? Will it come out on air on a local american channel? Or be hosted online on a paying viewing site? Will it come out only on DVD's? Or will some theaters that produce some independant films?
I must say that for those of us who don't live in america, we're quite concerned by the idea we'll probably going to have to wait a couple more months than the North american fans to get to see that movie if it's not released on DVD... ( increasing the risk of having major spoilers being meanwhile revealed on the internet...)

On the Famicom, there's a King of King's game developped by Namco. It's a strategy game that has nothing to do with that wisdom tree shit...

It's just like a street fighter II versus fight: The final match still needs to be set. Perhaps in the nerd movie?

BabySlayer777 No it's a cut movie. The true lenght is around 1h30 or more...
1 year, 5 months ago on Turkish Star Wars
ArikEmeis The main actor is famous in Turkey... and he is a legend among the fans that collects the worst movie ever made...
Cüneyt Arkın, is the worst turkish actor there's ever been! All the movie he's been participating are a pile of junk...
The Turkish Star Wars Rolfe and Mattei have been watching is a shortened version of this film. I've seen it entirely something like 4 years ago, and it's impossible! It goes for 1h and a half of riducule fighting scenes, a pointless story, and all the poor footage.
You laugh at first sight, but after one hour you just can't take it anymore!
If there were two more "awsome" movies from this actor (like beeing "awsome" for their crappiness) I' d recommand to watch "Death Warrior" and "Battal Gazi Geliyor"... These are HORRIBLE!!! But so funny at the same time!
Just check out that "epic" fighting scene taken from "Death Warrior" for instance:
After a quick check out it seems I was wrong with the After burner II game: it was only released on famicom, and not on the NES console.
But for the other games I am completly positive: they are missing in list (Dizzy the Adventurer, Dragon Ball, Formula 1 Sensation, Rod Land and Super Off Road)
And by the way,Dynablaster is not the European release of Bomberman, but the european release of Bomberman II.

A battle between Nerdy Turd and Shit Pickle?
Is there on earth a two player game bad enough to fit the challenge?
1 year, 5 months ago on The Odyssey
If you look overall the entire NES collection, it still has it's place in the "good games" list.
Of course, if you get to play an MSX translated version, do prefer this one to the NES version.
1 year, 5 months ago on Metal Gear
There is one console that's definitively missing in that list: The MSX. You can skip that one
I would also recommand the Amstrad GX4000 console. Not a huge console, but it had it's good and awful shitty games!

Another game only released in Europe that Rolfe did actually miss is ROD LAND, made by Jaleco, in 1992. Its a portage of an Arcade Game only released in Japan, and it's a kind of Bubble Bobble game. The two only european countries who got this game back them where Italy and Spain and it wasn't published in massive quantities: It's the rarest NES licenced game cartridge ever made, and it's a true challenge to find one nowdays! Good Luke to James Rolfe if he ever tries one day to find this one!
The last game I actually don't see in the nerds list is SUPER OFF-ROAD (full name: Ivan 'Ironman' Stewart's Super Off Road). It's also a portage of an arcade version, and it was released in USA and Europe in 1989 by Tradewest. The Super Nintendo version is well best known but the classic NES version is a pretty good game(unlike the superNES one) , and it's playable up to 4 people. It's a kind of RC pro Am or Micro Machine game. I own this one in my collection, with the box all the full notice, and I'm pretty sure Rolfe could find it here and there...
Considering the game colection, I think that's all. But there still are some particular cartridges out there than comes up with the NES. For example, I know there was a Joystick Test Cartridge that could be sent to you by Nintendo's after sales service if you had a controller failure. There's also a U-Force Test Cartridge in order to calibrate the device, but I think it was sold with the U-Force, so I wouldn't be surprised Rolfe already owns it.
I see James Rolfe has made it's list from the wikipedia's list of Nintendo entertainment system game.
But that list lacks a couple of games!
For instance, there is an AFTER BURNER II edited by Sunsoft in 1989 on the american NES. It's far more shitty than the original Sega After Burner II, but it still exists and should be found by Rolfe if he ever wishes to have a full collection!
I also see that the nerd has included the fantastic Adventures of Dizzy in his list, but there actually was another Dizzy the Egg game released on the NES console: DIZZY THE ADVENTURER, by Codemasters in 1993, and only for USA. It was on of these unlicensed games that could only be used with the Aladdin Deck Enhancer. Dizzy the Adventurer is the 6th game in the Dizzy series, and was originaly released in 1991 on old computer systems (Atari ST / Amiga / Commodore 64 / ZX Spectrum ...) as Dizzy the Prince of Northfolk.
(I wonder if the nerd is ever gonna try someday to review the old computer systems, the one that came before the first Windows versions... There were actually tons of shitty games on these systems!)
Another game that's not in nerd's list is the DRAGON BALL game. It was first released on Famicom in 1986 by Bandai, as is a pretty shitty game that is supposed to retrace the first adventure of Goku, Bulma, Yamcha and all the caracters of the Dragon Ball animated series.
The game was then ported on the US NES in 1988, but was renamed Dragon Power (and Rolfe owns this game), but actually had many changes from the original: The main caracter is no longer more Goku, but a guy that lokks like him, and several other changes...
However, there was a European portage of the original Dragon Ball game, only released in France (because Dragon Ball was the most popular TV animation among the french kids back in the 80's) , and directly translated from japanese to french with no changes from the original game such as Dragon Power did. It's very easy to find these days in France: evry retro gaming stores has a couple of these games since it's one of the shittyest ever released on the console.
There's also another game Rolfe didn't registered on his list: FORMULA 1 SENSATION, made by Konami and only released in Europe in 1993 by Palcom (a society created by Konami in order to distribute their games in Europe back then). It was initially released on Famicom as F-1 Sensation, but since it's one of the best formula 1 simulator ever made (not to say the best) on the NES, and since the europeans are very fond of F-1 racing, they got to be the only one to have this game. It's not a shitty one, it's actually quite good.
The Aracade version of Moonwalker, on the other hand, was so awsome!
I remembre leaving lots of coins in it back there in the early 90's!
