    I think it's pretty cool that Flo's brother has continued his legacy by attending tournaments and posting to threads after Flo's untimely death at BurningMort. He's not as good at Tecmo or nearly as good looking as Flo, but you take what you can get. I didn't catch his name at Green Bay, but he seemed like a good guy.

    MGK's Videogames Thread

    UPDATE: Tried a bunch of games. Currently I'm playing The Division. I'm kind of in love with this game. Very tactical gameplay for a duck & cover shooter. I dig mostly everything about it. The NPC enemies can be something of bullet sponges, but I don't mind that. The constant need to change out old gear for better new gear can get a little tedious. The types of missions can get a little repetitive, but the core of the game relies on the duck & cover game play within the missions themselves, which I think is the best part of the game. Do I think I'll play this game for months and months on end? No. Is the story great? No (and, honestly, who cares?) But I DO think that when an urge comes up to play a 3rd-person shooter, this is definitely my go-to experience. Highly recommended. 4 yaks out of 5. Tried the re-release for Resident Evil 4, having never played it originally when it debuted in the mid-2000s. I'm sure the game COULD be fun, but the controls are absolutely BRUTAL. Re-releasing this game without upgrading the controls/camera was a terrible, terrible choice by Capcom. If you can get beyond how absolutely BRUTALLY TERRIBLE the controls are, I'm sure you'll have fun. Not recommended. 1.5 yaks out of 5. Gave Batman - Arkham Knight a whirl. Fun. The atmosphere is amazing. The scale of the city and the technology of the game engine to render such a beautiful city is pretty amazing. Technologically, this game is pretty astounding in ways. It also appears to me to be a faithful interpretation of Batman's world in Gotham city. Typical open-world gameplay format, which works for a Batman, IMO. The voicing acting for Batman is terrible, though. Seriously, what a stupid mistake to make in a game that's ABOUT BATMAN. I'm not a huge Batman fan in general, so I'm not overly interested to push this game higher on my list of games to play. If I was more of a Batman fanboy, I'd be in heaven. Recommended. 3.5 yaks out of 5. I finally bit the bullet and picked up Rocket League. Fun as hell. The depth of the game engine is brilliant. Each match I have is fantastic. The only thing I don't like about the game is that there aren't more complicated multi-player match styles, like a tournament mode, or season mode, or something that simply wasn't one-off matches with a different number of players involved. They try to work around this by having your account 'level up' and whatnot, but I simply don't see the point of that. Overall, highly recommended. I just wish there was more to do with the multiplayer. 4 yaks out of 5. Grand Theft Auto 5 for the Xbox One finally was super discounted a couple of weeks ago, so I picked that up. Amazing how far Rockstar has taken this series, technologically-speaking. It's impressive in so many ways. The physics engine in GTA 5 is actually a little phased back from GTA 4, in terms of dynamics in car crashes and on foot. I was a little disappointed by that. The story/characters are typical Rockstar GTA nuttiness. I don't mind that the game doesn't take itself seriously at all, but I'm still waiting for Rockstar to truly flesh out how in-depth the player can interact with the various wandering NPCs. Although the world is so beautifully fleshed out and full of visual life, the actual interactive life of the world is still just as 2-dimensional as the early versions of this game on older consoles. NPCs in the GTA games just serve as providers of missions, or the general public NPCs serve as barriers to get in your way, either as bullet fodder for your guns, and blood splatters on the hood of your car. They really don't have much more depth than that, which is disappointing to me at this stage in GTA's life. I want more. Recommended. 3 yaks out of 5.

    Team Review: Green Bay Packers

    Green Bay Packers The 1990 Packers went 6-10 and dropped to 4-12 in 91. Thankfully for Packers fans it was the end of a long period of futility between the stand out play of the 60’s and 1993 onward. The teams best player is Sterling Sharpe. One of the best wr’s of the day but his career was cut short by injury. Never forget Sterling Sharpe is always open. His hands skills are so great that he even caught himself upon exiting the womb. Green Bay is an offensive powerhouse on the lower end of the game. Yet they have little on defense. Key Players QB Don Majkowski 25 Ms and 50 PC RB Keith Woodside 44 Ms RB Michael Haddix 94 hp WR Sterling Sharpe 50 ms, 75 rec DL Bob Nelson 69 RP, 38 ms, 56 hp LB Tim Harris 50 RP 50 MS 56 HP DB Jerry Holmes 44 MS 50 int DB Mark Murphy 44 MS 50 int Team strength running the ball, QB mobility, Sterling Sharpe. Team weaknesses lots of bad drones, weak ol and not too many good choices for manned defender. Best matchups. Vs Sea, Cle, No, Nyj Other possibilities Ne, Atl, Ind, Phx Stretching it Pitt Watch the video below as we go further in depth on the Lions. View the full article

    Team Review Detroit Lions

    Detroit Lions Part of an ongoing project to do a write up each team in Tecmo Thanks to Tom (The Retro Sports Gamer) for doing the videos. Please give me some feedback on the write up and video. Also follow Tom’s channel as we broadcast these live. Next Wednesday we will review Minn and TB if time allows us to do two again. I want to keep the write up short but have the key information. The 1990 Detroit Lions featured in TSB went 6-10 and then won the NFC Central in 1991 with a 12-4 record. They featured Barry Sanders who is in goat conversations for the RB position. Barry is the second best RB in tecmo and it’s hard to stop the Det offense when Barry, Rodney Peete and Mel Gray get in a groove. Key players QB Rodney Peete 31 Ms and 44 PC QB Andre Ware 25 Ms but 38 pc RB Barry Sanders 69 Ms RB Mel Gray 56 Ms WR Richard Johnson 75 rec but only 19 Ms DL Jerry Ball 69 hp LB Michael Cover 50 to 56 Ms, 50 hp LB Chris Spielman 44 rp, 50 ms, 56 HP DB William White 44 rp 56 Ms 56 HP 56 int Team strength running the ball, QB mobility and several usable defenders. Team weaknesses lots of bad drones, weak ol, bad kicker, low QB PC, very little HP in skill positions on offense and slow wr core. Best matchups. Vs Minn, Mia, Rams, Wash, Cin Other possibilities Den, TB, Dal, Phi Stretching it Oak, Chi, Pitt Watch the video below as we go further in depth on the Lions. View the full article

    Nintendo Switch Reveal

    I've definitely been on a gaming kick for the last year. I've really enjoyed it. To supplement that experience, I'd have to have the kind of lifestyle necessary to provide me the time. To wit: No kids; don't want any. Little TV watching; don't care. No theatre; not currently interested. No projects; started a new job recently and my 10-6 time spent in my working brain is enough. That being said, I need to make more time for working out. I recently turned 37, and my body has long since forgot about what a natural metabolism is. All of this adds up to having the kind of time to play some video games, and I fucken love it. I've been playing The Division lately, and the game is fun as fuck.

    (NES) Tecmonster's Tecmo Super Bowl 2017

    Thanks. They weren't all easy wins by any means. A few comebacks and last second finishes. I like the challenge of tecmonsters ROMS. The enhanced AI with the play calling and pass game for the computer etc. It makes it a whole different experience.

    Week 4: Colts @ Rams

    Final: Colts- 21 Rams- 7 It is no easy task to stop Bo Jackson, but the Colts defense was as solid today as constipated shit running through ones butthole. Rams begin game clawing away, but too many jukes and moves has Bo running into a Colts defender and he plants i on the ground. Colts recover. 7-0 Colts on the legs of Linda Blair/ Blair Thomas/ The Blair Witch Project. Rams get ball, Rypien Farts overthrows the TE on a 4th down by a tad. Blair gets another go ahead TD. 14-0 Colts. Rams get ball before half. Called play, slide catch convert. The Third Reich hits up Reed before half. TD 14-7 at the break. Halftime- Girls jumping on trampolines Colts receive. Moving the ball after Ivey Joe Hunter somehow scampers to mid field. 4th down and 4. Mitchell runs for the first...barely. Johnny Starship Hector gets the ball. TD. 21-7 Colts. Rams get ball. Colts defense holds. Mike Harden gets the INT. Colts run clock to end the game and do not put any more points in the board, because they are classy motherfuckers. GG to my good friend Gerald. Always fun to play vs him and just chat. GL to him on his season with Bo. I think the God's were just on my side tonight. Bob Golic was the key difference maker.

    Classic Tailback Highlights

    If @buck was an NFL running back, this is who I'd imagine he'd run like. Decisive and tough.

    There are a few things I think you can work on vs the computer: Running the same pass play over and over to get comfortable cycling through receivers and timing routes. Dodging drones on long runs. Making sure that if you win a grapple or the MAN defender gets blocked or bounced that you will take every run for as far as it can go. Changing the computer's plays to reflect a tournament player's playbook and trying to defend different plays from different positions. Knowing who isn't blocked on run plays and what positions drop in coverage. You can also practice tapping. Maybe try tweaking your technique while in game vs computer. I think something that people sometimes forget about being a good tapper is having a good jump when the tap battle starts. You want your first press to be as close to the beginning of the tap-off and switching your grip from running a ballcarrier/defender to how you tap fastest might make you skip a beat. Practicing on a ROM or with Track and Field or some other game is also a good way to track how fast you are tapping. Oh, and kicking field goals. Play on a ROM and do a save state before you attempt, so you can quickly reload your save state and attempt a kick over and over. Outside of that, I don't think there is much you can work on without having a person there.

    TSB’s Secret “Juice”

    My favorite Jstout story - People into stat-tracking were getting annoyed that tackles after a TD could cause fumbles, which would reset the stats to 0 for that play. I realized that I had never seen an out of bounds tackle result in a fumble, so asked Jstout if there was some boundary logic that could be switched to include crossing the end zone after a touchdown. He looked at the code a few minutes, tried a few things out, and before I knew it he gave us a hack that prevented lost stats from ever occurring again! It took him about 15 minutes, and all of the leagues (and I think even TPC) adopted the hack very quickly. It was one of the more minor hacks ever created by Jstout, but I still thought it was so cool how he took a basic idea and turned it into reality in a matter of minutes!
