I forgot to go through a lengthy and convoluted selection process this month, so I just looked through my list of games in MAME and asked myself how I could be an asshole...

Image

<CptRansom> i'll flip a fucking coin
<CptRansom> heads we play image fight
<CptRansom> tails we play gradius 3
<CptRansom> either way
<CptRansom> nobody wins


Arcade version (not PSP, not PS2, not SNES, not Commodore 64, not your mom). Japan version. Grow some balls and game over on 1-1 like a MAN.

I'm using the new tables because they rock tits. That being said, post scores in the following format or I'm going to look at you like you're stupid.

Name & Score & Area & Type

Don't screw it up or your score won't get posted until you correct your stupid mistakes.



Given the massive drama lately, you must submit a video of your replay as well as a simultaneous video of your hands and face (I want to see your emotional intensity as proof that you're trying otherwise you're probably just cheating).

Gradius IV would have been even more dickish.

I'll have to try to derust, but I don't see myself game overing on 1-1, even with the rust.

Your choice of format is silly!

I made an improvement: chum & 104,520 & 1-3 & A

3 options for stage 2 sure helped

Stage 3 is the furthest I've ever gotten in a Gradius game :lol:

Emuser & 635,400 & 1-10 & Type B

After 5 hours I play a run so good that I had gotten all the way past the gunwall on 1-10 no miss, but right before the spider on the following section comes out...I am dead serious when I say that I died randomly for no reason. Nothing on screen, no spider yet, no walkers from either the top or bottom, I was just near the back of the screen when I suddenly go POOF and I proceed to spend the next 20 minutes stuck on gunwall killing it repeatedly and dying shortly into the spider part.

I did say I was extremely rusty at this game. Didn't practice any before trying to go at it. I seem to at least remember the first 2 stages. I died because the game went out of the slowdown causing me to move faster than I thought I'd be and right into the water walls.
