Let's Play Streets of Rage



Streets of Rage is one of the best beat 'em ups ever created. Hell, it's one of the best games ever created and it's a perfect choice for a Let's Play.

I have spent many night playing through Streets of Rage on the Wii VC. I'll never get tired of the killer music and neon-filled city streets.

You can watch the video below, or check it out on youtube.

NES/Dwarf Fortress Streaming Continues! LIVE!


I'm getting damn close to beating Ninja Gaiden and Double Dragon II. The Dwarf Fortress plods along, almost self-sufficient at this point, but the sieges are becoming more aggressive and the greater the wealth of my kingdom, the greater the terrors that will try to take it.

Live 1/2 NES-a-thon!




NES-a-thon is typically a term used to describe 24-hour non-stop NES sessions. This has always been a goal of mine. I know that I won't make 24 hours today... but I'm pretty sure I can use today as my practice 1/2 NES-a-thon! (Marathon runners do the half marathon thing... same concept here).

Come check it out in my twitch channel (www.twitch.tv/Robot2600), or just watch it here on 8-Bit City. If you actually go to twitch, however, you can chat, yell at me, curse, and be a general public nuisance. I would obviously go that route, but the choice is yours!

I'm going to start things off with Castlevania 3. If you have a request I'll play at least a few minutes of it. I'm not uptight or elitists like some twitch bcasters either. Unlike some of the bigger streamers, words and "spam" don't bother me and your insane antics will only serve to amuse and delight.

So let's talk about the games a bit. I've never beaten Castlevania 3, although I'm getting better at it every day. Lately I've been playing SMB3, Castlevania, Ninja Gaiden, and Rygar... so expect those guys to show up over the next 12 hours.

Hopefully, with this practice session I will be able to complete one of my life goals: to play NES for 24 hours, stream it live, and document the entire thing with text as well. I don't have a set date yet, but maybe in a few days? Let's do 12 hours first.

Here is the live stream for today:

NES Streaming Live Tonight


While play Dwarf Fortress I've been listening to this list of the top 70 NES songs on repeat, and can no longer go another minute without playing some NES. The D0RFs will last, for now. Castlevania, Mega Man, and Adventure Island here I come!

Taking requests for games to play also.

It's live now @ www.twitch.tv/Robot2600

Dwarf Fortress: Back at It


Day 4. The epic adventure continues tonight!

Will goblins take me down? Unlikely? What can stop me? Nothing. Nothing can stop me.


VG Music: Top 70 NES Songs


Found this awesome top 70 list of NES songs on youtube this week. I don't agree 100% with the choices, but it definitely introduced me to like 10 songs I had never heard before! Great list, great listen.

Maybe this explains my recent delusions of beating Castlevania...
