And I'm back for 2013 and ready to plow through some more NES goodies!! Thought I'd start the year off with a bang and plugged in Sesame Street Countdown!!!! WoooooooHooooooo! The Count's voice clips actually did amuse me though. He was my favorite Sesame Street character after Super Grover Wink

Thought I'd get a bit more manly and play some TMNT Tournament Fighters after that. It was actually pretty decent. I had low expectations of a 1 on 1 fighting game on the NES, but it was surprisingly playable. You got your special moves, your counters, your throws, yup it had it all! Slammed through it with my buddy Raph and had a good time doing it. I just played through on the standard setting and the ending mentioned playing on Hard Mode though. Anyone know if there is a different ending for playing it on Hard?

What could be more manly than mutants fighting in the streets you say? How about shooting zombies and aliens! Put in the Bandai zapper game Shooting Range for my third game of 2013. Really not much to it. Some guys wander around the screen with pin wheels attached to them for some reason and you have to shoot the wheels. There was a disgusting looking pin wheel-eyed boss to fight at the end though which caught me off guard. I didn't master the game, but I did walk away with a nice bronze medal!!

There is nothing more manly than shooting aliens you might think, but you'd be an idiot because you forgot about Astronauts! Finished up my night of new NES games with Space Shuttle Project. This was a pretty unique game. You have to prep your shuttle for launch, gather your crew, launch your ship, get to your destination, perform a mission, and then return home. There are 6 missions in total, each one getting a bit more complicated and more challenging. If you're into repairing space stations or saving stranded Russian Cosmonauts this game will be right up your alley. Its not great, but I liked it.

It looks like there is a credit role when you beat it on hard mode looking at this hard playthrough:

Oh, and is congrats from GHWB and Dan Quyale a reward?
@Duke.Togo:Thanks Duke, I'll redo TMNT TF tonight on hard. And as a lowly Canadian praise from any of our US overlords is deemed a great honor Tongue
Well, you are really just the 51st state, right?
Hell of a start to the new year!  Keep it up Crabby.
I saw the Sesame Street game on my Youtube sub last night.  Showed it to my daughter and she thought it was simultaneously funny and stinky.
@bombatomba: YES! I'm finally breaking into new demographics. She's gonna subscribe, right? Wink
