Good as new.


Aren't all Metal Slug games literally just the same game with different cabinet art and for some reason the artists keep adding numbers to the end of the title?

Or become a zombie or a mummy.

Or ride a Camel or Elephant with gigantic guns mounted on the sides of them.

Or fight crab people and weird dealy-blooper aliens whose skin melts when they die exposing their skull. :colbert:

Ah, there we go.



Season 18 begins! Will Arino's doctor declare him unfit for another season? Will the PC Engine have enough oil to get through Tatsunoko Fighter? Can Arino ever become an accomplished speedrunner? The answer to all this and more in tonight's episode.

Actually, the speedrunning episode should be number four in the pipe. Arino doesn't speedrun the game you think, either! (Well, not "you" univbee. That's "you", the audience.)

It really is Tatsunoko Fighter (the title used in the episode). No, it's not that Tatsunoko.

Oddly enough, there's another, completely unrelated game called Tastunoko Fight which is that Tatsunoko.

Why, yes, I do like Kirby games.


Am I mistaken, or is the show adding some sort of sound effect to each death? (A sort of high-pitched noise I've heard in other contexts.) And if so, how long has it been doing it?

Jesus Christ, having a 25% chance of redoing a level seems like a dick move, and I wouldn't be surprised if the final door-roulette also had one that returned you to the beggining of the game like in JJ & Jeff. And then there was that :effort: last boss...

It was an amazing episode, thank you once again for the translation!

First of all, thanks a bunch for the new release! The game was kind of.... strange? But still a load of fun to watch. I can't believe we're in Season 18 already!

Also, I don't wanna get ahead of myself here but does unclogging the release pipe mean we're in for a flood of new releases that were all backed up in there? :ohdear:

Nope. I just made up stuff about working on three different episodes to keep people off balance. There's definitely nothing terrific and great coming up soon.

I want to see Arino digging that coin from under that machine already.

And I guess to a lesser extent the rest of that episode that goes with it.

Great episode, by the way! It's amazing how many these early games failed Game Design 101 with all of the little gently caress-yous (like the 25% chance of going back to the beginning of the level. One of the reasons I love GCCX is because it's really great as a game designer to analyze how well (and how badly) games were designed back then, and the average player's knee-jerk reaction to the mechanics.

Oh god that unclogging caused an overflow I can't stop it oh god there's releases EVERYWHERE!



Try as he might, Arino just can't get that dang blue bomber helmet off. As his Mega Man has been upgraded to twice the bits, so too, does this release upgrade to twice the frames, and we're doing a test run and trying a 60 frames per second release (but still offering a 30 fps version for those of you who don't want to deviate from the usual style).

:siren: Experimental - this episode has two versions, choose wisely :siren:

Mega Man X Part 1

30 fps - 604.2 megs (usual style, but some in-game effects don't come out right due to the flickering ending up on "odd" frames. Download this one if you're not sure.): https://mega.co.nz/#!6UM3SZbR!peelIEx8KmO8C7kM2x21QIPSZQjC4VxdtCi_qFzm_5E

60 fps - 664.7 megs (the full experience, but may not work on some devices or only show you 30 fps anyway. Played fine for me on updated Windows Media Player, VLC and MPC-HC, though. Also there will be spots where the overlays are off by 1 frame because apparently the subtitles don't let you tweak beyond 30 fps accuracy): https://mega.co.nz/#!GcV1DTCZ!V4v0VcJcG_IJjhDkwjISd9ZBYEkw1ARZ2gBLsR-dVdA
