I came here because of Bombastica. Ah Game Room... you could've been so good but you were soooo bad
The music in Trick Trap is pretty awesome.
It was pretty awesome, it's even more awesome when it's not poorly emulated:
Watch out for snakes!
Blades of Steel was amazing.
The music in Trick Trap is pretty awesome.
Am I a bad human being for not really liking Pitfall 2? I've only ever played the C64 version, and despite a lot of time with it as a kid, it always seemed like a chore.
Trick Trap has an awesome soundtrack! :D
That's probably the most exciting patch of games for the last 3 months or so.
Loving the Massive! F! bomb! at 1:36 :D am still grinning.
Holy shit...gameroom ..release is..good
Played Pitfall 2 last year at a mates house, awesome game that can still entertain the hell out of you.
"Hey Pretty Face! Shoot it!"
The evil-sounding music at the beginning of the QL reminds me of the music that plays in the cutscene in TMNT IV when the Technodrome is rising out of the ground.
" @PassiveKaerenai: I caught that too! Man, MST3K will never die... :-) "Keep circulating those tapes!
Revamping the look of Gameroom won't actually change anything if the games are still crap. At least Trick Trap had good music. Gameroom allows one to rewind in Pitfall II? Braid's influence is even retroactive... The cave part of Pitfall II pretty much defines "platformer".
Jeff should write a Pitfall cartoon page on screened.com
IS THAT IT :)
Actually some decent games this week. I used to own Blades of Steel for the NES, had a lot of fun playing it. I actually didn't even know that there was an arcade version. I might get it but the vertical orientation of the screen was a bit disorienting (ha ha) for me.
Pitfall II was one of my favorite games when I was a kid. The music definitely sounds a little off in the video, though.
I was surprised Jeff understood what an offside meant in hockey
Game Room is BACK! (too soon?)
Blades of Steel and Pitfall II are pretty awesome - but after playing Trick Trap a few times, I'd say it ranks up there with those two. It's a great Commando type game, with some cool level design. Nice surprise - hope people give it a chance past the first level.
Here's what is apparently inside 12:
Trick Trap 1771 (pretty cool Commando type game with a medieval meets future twist)
Blades of Steel (yes!!!)
MIA: Missing in Action (aka Rush'n Attack 2)
Sunset Riders (4-Player Beat'em up Cowboys)
Twinbee (Big shooter in Japan)
Off The Wall
Catching up on my QL backlog today. Cool update, and games that don't suck! Yes!
Pitfall II looks simply amazing. That's an Atari 2600 game? Fucking incredible.
" @SuperfluousMoniker said:Plus, there's this whole video game website thing that Jeff's been doing for the past fourteen years. With all the games constantly coming out that he has to focus on, he doesn't have the time to dedicate to a mastering a single game. If Pitfall II came out today, I doubt he would have dedication to memorize all of it like he did back then." I don't understand how Jeff could memorize Pitfall 2 yet hate Megaman 9.Pitfall 2 is about the exploration of hundreds of non-linear screens with infinite lives.
Mega Man 9 is about getting game overs across 12 linear screens until you get the pixel-memory down and can move onto the next stage, where you repeat the linearity and crazy difficulty once again.
They're kinda different. One is fun and relaxing. The other is brutal and punishing.
Personally, between the two options, I'd happily take the 'fun' choice! "
I actually think the medal box is actually kinda nifty.
edit: Its games like Pitfall 2 that really make these Quick Looks shine, but maybe thats because I like watching people play a game that they are good at.
Anyone else notice the number 1 high scorer's gamertag on Trick trap -1771?
Wow... I'm actually going to buy some Game Room games.
Pitfall 2 is what I've been waiting for, and some of these upcoming Arcade games sound promising. Though what's up with no ranked mode? It has points
Wait, Trick Trap isn't a game about undercover vice cops?
"Shoot it all over me!"
Holy balls! Pitfall 2 and Blades Of Steel. Two of my favorite games from my childhood. Is Game Room finally turning this shit around?
C P U
ON THE WING!
they keep sounding more and more depressed every game room quick look...
Laughed at Ryan's sarcastic "oh fuck!".
9 "Real" Arcade games, YES, that means at least 9 more weeks of "Game Room"
I feel like some random Game Room problem solved in the title update kept them from putting out all the games in this pack. I mean, there's no point to destroy the system with Intellivision crap if they still have real games left to sell. Compared to what we've seen the last couple months, this was a fucking miracle release of games.
"Shoot it all over me" - Jeff.
Sunset Riders... wow. If they worked in online multiplayer... I will gladly pay for it. I will happily make it my first purchase.
AgentZackMorgan is the best Trick Trap player in the world. Thats fucking awesome.
Look out for waterrrr snaaaakes
Finding out Sunset Riders is coming to game room has made watching all these videos worth it.
I have very fond memories playing pitfall 2 when i was really really young, I never realized it was released a year before i was born though. Have always loved the music in pitfall 2 and remember playing it a ton.
How can Ryan continuously sound so negative.
This week seem miles above anything previously seen in Game Room.
" Was Pitfall 2 the 1st Metroidvania? "Well... There is no power-ups.
Fuck! i cannot wait for sunset riders, that game was awesome. Pitfall 2 seems interesting, never played it all those years ago and to be honest im surprised as how complicated it is.
Trick Trap's music is fucking awesome.
