We are back and stronger than ever!! After an extremely slow May I was having my doubts about our progress in this challenge. But after a crazy productive June and July we are back on track to make this challenge a reality!! As of July 31st we've collectively beaten 432 NES games which leaves us with an achievable 237 games to beat in the final 5 months of the year. With our selection of games dwindling we are getting into the weird, the bad, the ugly, the seedy underbelly of the NES. If you really want to deep dive into this amazing library now is a great time to join us in the NES Challenge.

With May being our slowest month to date thing's where not looking good for us to pass the halfway mark of the NES library by the halfway mark for the year. But with some very impressive June participation from several members we are more than 30 titles past the 50% mark of the entire licensed NES library! Starting July off with an impressive 370 NES games beaten by our own community members since January 1st 2019.

Join us for July as we press forward to our next milestone!

For the last couple months even cutting our community goal drastically we've continually fallen short of our monthly targets. So this month, and possible just going forward, I'm scrapping the community goal to hit a certain number of games. I was really hoping to have at least half the library done by now (and we are extremely close to doing so) to give use some extra wiggle room later in the year, but we will persevere regardless.

Participation has dropped off massively in the last 2 months and we could still use all the help we can get. So please take a look at the list of remaining games and join in if you're able to. Still lots of great titles that haven't been attempted yet as well as many hidden gems to yet be uncovered!

Even with our committed members slaying games left and right we managed to fall a little short of our Community Goal of 300 Games beaten by March 31st. Our unflinching players are not discouraged and continue to journey towards our ultimate goal of beating the entire NES library in 2019. We still managed to defeat 282 total games last month with 52 of those being in March alone!

With 2019 upon us, I propose a challenge to all my RFGeneration friends. Let's join forces to tackle the Nintendo Entertainment System licensed library in one year starting TODAY!! I think if all of us pool our combined knowledge, resources, collections, gaming skills, and support each other throughout the year, we can accomplish this lofty goal.

After many hours spent not playing NES games, and tons of PMs volleyed back and forth with Bickman2k (who was also my first subscriber ever, horaay!) we were finally able to get some videos shrunk down and then uploaded to youtube. Currently I've got 9.5 games loaded onto the old tube, but I've got all the rest of the videos shrunk to a more managable size and will be able to get them uploaded aswell in the near future. I also learned to reduce the settings on my capture software so that the file will be much smaller from the get go and I wont have to mess around with it afterwards.

Even though I spent a lot of my free time messing around with the videos I did manage to get a bit of gaming time in, which I spent playing Double Dragon. After over a dozen attempts I kept inching closer and closer to the end, but wasnt able to finish any games on Wednesday. A couple hours more DD early on Thursday morning and I was barely able to squeak out a victory and save my lady friend. 

Tried some DDII afterwards and decided that, for now at least, the games are too time consuming for me to continue with. They are short, but unforgiving, No extra lives or continues makes them brutal games. So I've moved on to everyones favorite......

Contra!! Now instead of having to dodge invisible bullets, like I had to with Mega Man it was my bullets that would occasionally be gone. That wasnt a big deal, but when I got hit and respawned I wouldnt be able to see my character while he was invulnerable. Which meant I couldnt take advantage of that wonderful time very well. It ended up taking me a bit longer than I wanted, but I was able to get another win. Almost had a no continue victory, but screwed up right near the end.

What goes better with Contra than Super C? Nothing, thats what. So I had no choice, but to follow up some C with a little Super C. Was a little bit quicker than Contra, but still took longer than it should have to get my win. Had a fairly solid run though so nothing to complain about.

I was hoping to score the Contra Trifecta tonight with a Contra Force win also, but I only had a very short time left and when I was partway through stage 4 on my last attempt, my game froze. Should be able to knock it off early tomorrow though and I'll probably follow it up with some Contra-esque Power Blade action.

I'll try and get the hot Contra on Contra videos up soon, in addition to the rest of the Mega Man ones.

Thanks so much for all your help Adam!!
