If you thought July was action-packed, wait until you see what we have in store for you in August. Get ready for another great month of community adventure as the RF Generation Playthrough Group takes you to Slumberland and Dubai, two once peaceful areas that are now stricken with unrest. Join us as Fleach moves over to the retro side and hosts a very unique, action-platformer on the NES, Little Nemo: The Dream Master. This title was voted on by the community and we hope that you will join us in playing this classic.  Disposed Hero hops over to the modern side this upcoming month to host Spec Ops: The Line, a 3rd person shooter with an emphasis on squad tactics and cover. While the game is little talked about, it has an extremely compelling story and won several industry awards, including Best Narrative at Machinima's Inside Gaming Awards.



Little Nemo: The Dream Master is a NES classic that is typically well-known by collectors, but may not be as familiar to the more casual gamer. The game was developed by Capcom, and like most of their titles, this one is up to standard. You play as Nemo, a young boy, as he travels to the Nightmare land to rescue Morpheus, the king of Slumberland, from the clutches of the evil Nightmare King. In this 2-D platformer, you must search for a specific number of keys in each level (the number of keys varies) in order to unlock several doors at the end of each. Along the way, you will encounter enemies and other more helpful animals who are essential to your success and will aid you on your quest if you feed them candy. Little Nemo is a beloved NES classic that should not be missed.

On the modern side, join us for Spec Ops: The Line, and strap on the boots of U.S. Army Captain Martin Walker as you embark on a rescue mission in the now-barren wasteland of Dubai, which has been ravaged by a series of cataclysmic sandstorms. On the surface, Spec Ops: The Line (for 360/PS3/PC) is a modern military third-person shooter, but underneath that exterior lies a provocative story that will challenge your morality by placing you in the middle of unspeakable situations where unimaginable choices affecting human life must be made. Do you have what it takes to experience the trials of war, walk “The Line”, and emerge on the other side with your sanity intact?

The year is 1991, I share an NES with my sister.  I am 10 years old, and lived on a military base in New York.  The Commissary has a small VHS and video game rental part of the store.  I was able to convince my mother to rent this game (LIttle Nemo) for me.  I was so excited that I stayed up all night (it was summer) and played it.  I played it again the next day, and the next.  This game was really hard, but I couldn't stop playing it.  Finally enough time passed that I had to return the game.

I hadn't beaten the game, and I just HAD to find out how this game unfolded at the end, so naturally I asked my mother to get the game for me.  I don't even recall which holiday, or occasion that I received the game, but I immediately popped it in and played a marathon again, leaving the NES on overnight so as to not lose my progress.  I did this a few times because after a couple of days being on someone would inevitably power it off and I would have to start over again.

Eventually I was able to beat the game in it's entirety, and it felt like such an accomplishment, much like when my sister and I would beat Super Mario Bros. 4-8 times in a row such that the very first baddies were buzzy beetles and moving at a very fast pace.  At any rate, I have not gotten the game back again, but this may motivate me to beat this game again.
 
@Gamer4Lyfe: Awesome story! I do hope that you can join us. Smiley
 
@singlebanana: It is likely I will be able to do it as I couldn't resist and just ordered the game...not the most prudent of purchases, but I love this game.
