    North Dakota - Burning Mort II

    ...and we have a winner. I don't have many pictures or videos from the event. The ones I do have have already surfaced. I do want to throw out some very well-deserved thank you's in hosting the second iteration of Burning Mort...which is two more iterations than the world really needed to see. Thanks to all of the North Dakota Tecmo group for taking time away from real life over the course of the last few months to put together ideas, props, idiocy for something that is most decidedly not real life. Special thanks to Dr. Frolf - the amount of work he puts into this thing is just insane. He takes it from shirtless camping trip to techno dance remixes and Disneyland maps. Your work on Burning Mort cannot be understated or undersold. Thanks to to the Conjurer and his assistant. What was once a simple afterthought piece of Burning Mort quickly became the centerpiece and it's awesome. We are all in their debt, for Tecmo and for life. Thanks to Dave Murray and Brude for all the work they put in. The custom ROMs were a huge hit, and Dave's constant work on the multimedia is fantastic. I am still laughing at the Conjurer vs. Orenga scene on eatshitorenga.com right now. Both coasts collaborating to hit a homerun in the Great Plains. The Tecmo community is pretty rad. Thank you to all of the competitors. It is simply ridiculous that you would travel as far as you do for something so ridiculous, but we are glad you do. There were 16 competitors, and 11 of which traveled. It was a blast having each and every one of you there, and I had an uproariously good time with all of you. My face hurt from laughing dozens of times that day, and the night before. That was a righteous group of idiots that we put together. At the end of the night, the Conjurer handed out awards. These were entirely his picks: Champions - Tribe Chet MVP - Mort Rookie of the Year - Segathon Conjurer's Pet - sonofpatbeach Finally, I figured I would throw in one inside joke memory about each participant that stands out to me: Chet - Passing out around 1:30, and being threatened the next day to be added to the Burning Mort graveyard Josh - Stocking my fridge with Bud Light and buffalo chicken burritos Orenga - Getting pissed that we didn't throw BUF/NE in the beer helmet round to set the proper tone. We blew that one. Durch - Shedding his Gannonball Run shirt for the belly Badgers model. Paperboy savant. Segathon - Having Burning Mort written all over everything - car, flesh, shorts Beef Juice - Ordered a Colt 45 40 to start the weekend and put that SOB on Twitter arncoem- Made up a story to his wife, burned a thousand darts while he was free, and slept most of Sunday away with me (in a mostly non-gay way) Dot Don - The chief of the coolest tribe there. Must have ninja'd out way early before we could properly pay homage. Mort - Put up with the drunken mess; declared Burning Mort to be the best time other than his sexual conquests Lou - Slept in a van instead of the bare ground. Sacrificed his Tupa Bowl shirt to the fire. Murray - Tetris vs. Mort. Ruthless domination. Dr. Frolf - Somehow got a band with a giant mixing board, lights, and talent to perform in the woods Barry - Asking the band, "So is the first time you've played a Burning Mort?" Tucker - Pounded Chet in mirror Tecmo Bryce - Contributed "Good Ass Beer" - three words that will live in Burning Mort infamy Enjoy those gold pants, gentlemen.

    Personal highlights: LPGE as a whole was ridiculous and huge. Meeting new guys and seeing my brothers in Tecmo again after Madison. Cosplayers. Playing SFII in a VirtualBoy vs Regulator. Free Play Barcade on Friday night. Finding an In N Out and sharing Reg's, Ones' and Gats' first Double Double Animal Style with them. Introducing Gats to Mexican food. This meat is so good it doesn't even need ranch! Witnessing a Gats bowel movement so foul that I had to go the hotel lobby for 10 minutes. Game 1 of the finals had a ridiculous ending. Wow. This is why I do what I do. Legit esports moment there. Gatsisms are now a thing. This dude is so innocent it is hilarious. I love that he speaks his mind with no perceived judgement. It is awesome. True honesty. Receiving texts from Mort, Lou, JimSocks & Diaz all talking shiz and Mort dancing in a panther suit head. Great. Freaking. Weekend. Love you guys. Love each other. Lift your fellow man up.

    This was definitely an amazing event. Anyone who enjoys video games is missing out. Thank you @davefmurray for setting this up and securing this location for the tournament. It was the more fun atmosphere to date for a Tecmo tournament. It was great to see/compete against many fellow Tecmoer's like @joeygats, @Neerrm, @Ashman, @duecethasa1nt, Flo, @suicideking81, @Nos, as well as meeting many new faces. I don't know who Willie C. is but he gave me a good run for my money our first pool play game. I hope he continued to come to these events. P.S - There were some fine chicas dressed up as many characters you would know from all sorts of games.

    great post @Leonardite I think @DrFrolf is the Elon Musk of Tecmo. I am still not fully in this plane of existence yet. The Conjurer's gift of ROY has put enough magic around me that I have walked between worlds this week. Spaced out on a meeting yesterday at work and was driving through my neighborhood this morning see all the garabage cans out and thought to myself "wonder while they are putting out the garbage a day early" BUT the weirdest thing is this picture of me and my siblings is starting to fade out

    Chicago Tecmo Super Bowl Tournament - "The Equalizer" When - Saturday October 14, 2017 Where - Michael Anthony's Pizzeria - 6434 W. Ogden Ave. Berwyn, IL 60402 Time - Registration 11:45am to 12:15pm, Kickoff Time 12:30pm Buy In - $20 - Registration through paypal to retrosportsgamertom@gmail.com Format: 20 players maximum 5 groups of 4 players playing round robin (3 games for each player) -Groups will be separated by skill level, past tournament experience, TPC / online record. Top players will all be grouped together; newer players will all be grouped together. -Group play will use provided tier list for choosing matchups All 20 players will advance to a single elimination playoff round based overall record in tournament and the draft lottery. There will be a draft lottery for seeding based on your record after group play. It is based on the four possible record outcomes: Record - 0-3 - 20th seed will randomly be selected here, then seeds will continue to be selected until there is no player that was 0-3 left Record - 1-2 - Seeds randomly selected until there are no players that were 1-2 left Record - 2-1 - Seeds randomly selected until there are no players that were 2-1 left Record - 3-0 - Seeds randomly selected until there are no players that were 3-0 left, 1st pick will be last player selected -Determined seeding for the single elimination playoff creates the order for players to choose their team for the remainder of the tournament. (Tier 1 is excluded) For example, the first seed chooses their team first, then the second seed, third seed etc. 20th seed gets last choice of team. -There will be a championship game, as well as a third place game for the two participants eliminated in the final four. Prizes: All money for entry goes towards prizes. 1st - $200 2nd - $120 3rd - $80 Rules: 1. Tier list for group play. Winner of coin toss is player 1 and chooses tier. Loser of coin toss chooses team from tier player 1 selected or a lower tier. Winner of coin toss chooses team second from tier originally chosen or lower tier. 2. 49ers are allowed in group play with limitation. Either Joe Montana or Jerry Rice has to be on the bench. They cannot be on the field at the same time on offense. You can switch them in and out once per quarter and an additional time at the end of half / game. 3. We will not keep track of teams used during group play. Choose the team that best suites you in group play under the tier list guidelines. 4. Customizing Playbooks and Lineup Changes. You are allowed to change your selected team's playbook before each game. Checking the change / substitution screen is allowed during gameplay. Once per quarter for each player is the recommendation. 5. WR/TE at RB: A WR/TE cannot carry the football unless it is a reverse. You can insert a WR or TE into a RB slot for lead blocking purposes, but he cannot carry the football. To further clarify, players such as Ernest Givins, Ricky Sanders, and Andre Rison cannot carry the football unless it is a reverse. 6. Ties during group play are ok. No ties for single elimination playoff. If a game is tied when regulation concludes, competitors will proceed to OT. All OT’s will be 5-minute sudden death periods. If no one scores in the first OT, the second OT will be only the first quarter in a new game. This process will be repeated until a winner emerges. So that one competitor does not start with the ball in every OT period, the receiving team (i.e. team that gets the ball first) shall alternate beginning with the second OT period. 7. Defensive Lineman Lurching is prohibited. In this tournament, lurching is defined by user controlling a defensive lineman, not engaging a blocker, then diving at the quarterback or running back. If you go around the offensive line, you are allowed to dive at the quarterback. Going through the offensive line is permitted with a defensive lineman, but diving at quarterback or running back would be considered lurching. 8. Nintendo Malfunctions: If there is an equipment failure in the first half, games will be replayed from the start. If equipment malfunctions in the 2nd half, only the second half is replayed. In that event, the scores from each half are added together to obtain a final score. If the game was uncompetitive or the equipment malfunctioned due to human error, the tourney organizers reserve the right to declare a winner without replaying any portion of the game. 9. Tournament Disputes: Tom Stahnke and Francis Mort Buennagel are the tournament referees. They will decide all disputes unless one of them is a player in the game. If one or both is a player in the disputed game, a referee to be determined will resolve the dispute. 10. Competitors are allowed to bring their own controller, but it has to be an official Nintendo rectangle controller. Live Stream: The Retro Sports Gamer Youtube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC_b9V5HP0eJZyLuhuEmDf_g -A live stream will be set up for the top rated round robin group during group play -Single Elimination Playoff will showcase a selected game during each round, the 3rd Place game, and the Championship. Players that register and can't make the tournament with at least one week notice will be fully refunded. Please contact me at retrosportsgamertom@gmail.com if you have any questions about the tournament. Thanks!

    Top 10 Moments From Millard's Mayhem 2: #10: Everybody coming! This tourney couldn't of happened with all of you coming. You all really brought the Mayhem to the tourney. Hopefully you are all back next year. I have heard of or seen most everyone at the tourney but it was nice to actually talk and get to know some of you a little more. At Madison it is so crazy trying to get to know others is pretty tough. #9: My buddy Tony losing with the 49ers against the Bills against my brother Mike. I think of the 49ers as the unbeatable team and my buddy Tony should of easily won with way more experience. It was funny to see him lose and my brother getting his first Tecmo victory. #8: The Raffle prizes: I gave away a 12 month calendar the People's Champ made with some of his greatest sports memories. It was hand drawn by him. I believe Cory (Noonan) won it. Ask him. He can tell you it was a real Picasso. Also Segathon's buddy Nate winning the autographed Jeff George Card giving him good luck and getting him to the Elite 8 of the tourney. He truly did give 110%. I spent many of hours during my summer school prep periods on craigslist and ebay bargaining for low prices. I tried to make sure almost everyone won something. If you didn't let me know I will make you a card of your favorite player and bring it to Tundra Bowl. #7: Everyone making bracket play. It meant a lot to my buddies who aren't the best and new players that I haven't met (who were part of 2D Con) to be in bracket play. Also for those traveling from far away distances it makes it worth while. Everyone at least got 4 games in. It gives a fighting chance to everyone. It was also great to see my friends and brothers matched up against each other in the brackets. #6: The People's Champ getting his first victory. He almost had 2 in bracket play. He had Segathon on the ropes for most of the game in a Jets (Segathon) vs. Phoenix (George) it took a last quarter drive to get the win. Then the next game he defeated my brother Alex to cement his name in the win column. My brother could be an up and comer. I bet in 20 years he could take Madison. #5 and #4: RetroNathan stepping up and helping me out. Tom (8-Bit) was suppose to help me run this but for some reason just didn't. I know he did move so he was busy with real world stuff but it is hard to run a tourney one your own. My buddy Scib reduced him to 4 Bit because of his performance and play. Nate really came through with setting up the bracket putting in scores and helping clean up. I really appreciated it. He received a Joe Montana Starting Lineup as a reward. I couldn't of run the tourney as effectively without them. Segathon bringing his Tv's and NBA JAM. Having extra controllers which we needed two of and an extra TV which we needed and NBA Jam was awesome. Not only did my buddies love NBA Jam a college favorite for us but other people from 2D Con were playing NBA Jam. I really wished I wasn't running the tourney because I was jealous watching my buddies and brothers playing NBA Jam. I wanted in on that action. Miller and Smits never were able to get their groove on. These guys are also great guys in general. Awesome personalities and super fun to hang around. If you don't know them go to Tundra Bowl this January which Retro Nathan host or a Segathon event. It will make you smile. #3.5 and 3: The Iowa boys representing. I had heard of these guys but to really meet them was a joy. I played Kyle in group play in a classic match of Cleveland vs. NO which was back and forth until I fumbled on the kickoff and he took the lead for good. I played Cory in the final 6 in which he crushed me. I played Kris Kramer in the Elite 8 and he won in a Bills vs. Giants matchup which I was lucky to comeback and then lost on on my final drive. He blocked my JJ. I didn't get to play Justin or the other Kramer Brother but they are fun guys. I think they were all part of the Elite 8. Partying with you guys would be great. I hope to make it down there for one of your tourneys. I have tried a couple of years and each time snow has been my nemesis. Josh coming in from ND. He was classic. He had a classic game against my buddy Scib in bracket play. He also brought a case of Coors tall cans in and had great enthusiasm. That is what I call class. #2: My buddy Scib (Nostradamus)(Bills) and Josh (ElijahPeters)(Oilers) game in bracket play. Segathon posted the video a must watch. Scib throws a pass and it goes out bounds in the endzone for a safety with a minute left up one. He then kickoffs and Josh throws a JJ to get himself to the 50 with 3 seconds left. Zendejas lines up a perfect kick only to get blocked and win the game. It was pandemonium! I forgot how it all broke down until I watched the video that is how pumped I was. #1: The Championship game Francis (Mort)(Buccaneers) vs. Kyle (The Gamer)(Cardinals). This game had some of the best back and forth action I had ever seen for a championship game. It was classic. Mort was doing JJ's with Carrier like no one I had ever seen. He was on fire. Next year could definitely see a name change to Millard's Mayhem because of this game. Kyle did come back on a JJ to Roy Green and then out tapped Mort to score to send the game to overtime. I think the total play was 80 yards with the JJ happening on Mort's 48 yard line. Mort won the toss in OT and then after two plays fumbled on his 27 yard line. After two plays Kyle kicks the game winning field goal with Al Del Greco to seal the deal. He wins the Championship Belt and the prize money. It was great. An awesome way to end the tourney. Super fun and super exciting. Thanks again everyone. There were other great games and lots of excitement across the board to talk about as well, but that will all be in the book I write. Just kidding. Thanks for the memories.

    (NES) Tecmo Grey Cup 2016

    I plan on updating the ROM again if there is interest. I haven't started it yet. I can never tell if other people really use the CFL roms or if I'm just making it for myself lol. I see some people advertising the 2 pt conversion for Tecmo 18 on facebook. Do you know if that is now possible to have added?

    Tecmo Dallas I was a huge success! Thanks to everyone that came out! Let's Play Gaming Expo was incredible. While we were the sidecar event, it was amazing to be in the midst of 5,000 people, 1,100 of which were gamers there from all of the world to compete. We sold out at our capped 32 and had a few no shows, but we also had notables from the local scene show up and bring it. Tecmo "God" Lee took Suicide King to the ropes, with SK squeaking out a last minute FG. Will C. (from Pan Handle Tecmo, this was a "championship" back in the day. Maybe @Knobbe can help me find the site.) hung with Regulator for 3.5 quarters in a tied game. Our final 8 featured: @joeygats, @regulator088, Ashman, Big Hock, @Nos, @Neerrm, @duecethasa1nt & @suicideking81 . We had a TMXIII finals rematch with Regulator & Gats going head to head in a final round best of 3. They provided 3 awesome games, game 1 especially, with Regulator coming out on top. (Sober Regulator is freaking scary, FYI.) Thanks to @suicideking81 for bringing his setup so we could have a stream. If we do Tecmo Dallas again, there will be marked improvements in a lot of ways. We'll keep ya'll updated as always.

He will have plenty of signed memorabilia on hand for purchase in order to support the David Fulcher Foundation for awareness of multiple sclerosis. We will be raffling off a chance to play Fulcher in a game of Tecmo as well. He will man the Bengals, you will man a team tiered below the Bengals.

    Segathon and I were also talking about this. When you have friends or new players sign up and I know the thrill of victory is important but help some of the new guys with setting up play books and some of the fundamentals of the game. I made that announcement in Millard's Mayhem and it was good to see that happening before and after games. We can build a bigger fan base and more participation based on that as well. Destroying some one you know you are going to beat really doesn't make it worth while. Let them enjoy the past of the greatest sports game ever made. Making it as fun as possible is key. I had lot of free raffle prizes and everyone made bracket play. Most of these guys just want to play and maybe get one victory under the belt.

    It's a good problem to have. And it would be better to coordinate your date with tecmobowl.org, especially if you are trying to make it a big one. But I don't think we want to discourage people posting tournies/tecmo meet ups if 75% of the guys going are just mutual friends anyways. Heard this story on news and I think it applies. Nashville Hot Chicken got huge recently from a reginal dish to KFC selling it. One would think it may hurt the orginal Nashville Chicken places but it actually increased demand as people had the KFC version and want to get authentic dish. Lots going on in the world is crazy but I can get behind a world that has more spicy chicken and tecmo...

    Hey guys, As you may or may not be aware, we (the buds of nhl94.com) just think the world of you guys and how you run your tecmo tournaments. I've ran about half a dozen so far in three different cities, and the next one I'll be helping with is in Las Vegas in September. I just thought I'd mention this NHL '94 tourney in case there's someone here who might be interested in attending. There will also be an hour long NHl'94 documentary being premiered at the event. All the information is in the link below. https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/king-of-94-ii-nhl-94-tournament-registration-33959801681 Side note: I just got my new plate on Friday.

    There are unwavering commitments and sacrifices to be made. You must be one with The Conjurer. "Squeezes and deaths" do not please him. Only through continued promise will you be added to the short, short tribal comrade register. Those selected from the register to attend must verse themselves in the Burning Mort annals, thereby guaranteeing that all comrades comprehend the experience.

    The Road To Tecmo Madison

    We are working on some new, awesome extensions for Tecmo and Tecmo Madison. We are going to start a tournament series, including qualifiers and a last chance event, that leads up and builds to Tecmo Madison -- The Road To Tecmo Madison. Overall, there will be 5 tournaments - 3 qualifiers that will be coined "Majors", 1 Last Chance event and the main event, Tecmo Madison. Each of the majors will contribute to a new point and seeding system for Tecmo tournaments. Players who finish in the top 4 of each major will get a guaranteed Top 6 region seed at Madison. Major winners will get an even better seeding, with preferred placement into regions. The points system will be assigned to all tournaments that adhere to a few standard rules and formats. Those are: They must use the basic rules from Tecmo Madison (http://tecmomadison.com/rules), they must have more than 24 people, they must submit the scores to TecmoMadison.com using the proper format, and the final portion of the tournament must be a seeded bracket, single or double elimination. The points system is as follows: 1st 25 2nd 18 3rd 15 4th 12 5th 10 6th 8 7th 6 8th 4 9th 2 10th 1 Once your tournament has been posted on TecmoBowl.org and pinned, the Tecmo Madison committee will read through and reach out to let you know if your tournament will be part of The Road To Tecmo Madison. We will announce all the tournament majors in the coming weeks here on TecmoBowl.org. Players: We will keep track of your points and they will be posted on your TecmoMadison.com profile as we build them out. More on this later. Organizers: There will be further benefits to being part of the series and we will make a separate post laying out that information for you. Good luck and godspeed during this Tecmo Bowl season.

    It's a good thing. I am holding a tournament where I newly relocated in New York State. It is in between NYC and Syracuse. I have already had a new group of guys reach out to me, who are actually pretty competitive. I am looking to hold some practices with them, and grow them. It is a great way to add competition to the field, and see some new faces. Also, it gives people a chance to be more willing to play, by playing the game in their backyard and not having to travel so far away. Once they get some games under their belt and get better- they will venture out to larger, more meaningful tournaments. To me- 100% good thing. In my opinion the end goal of Tecmo should be to grow it so large, that it is televised, and the grand prize is a huge cash payout like other video games do. Would be special if that happened.

    View File Tecmo Grey Cup 2016 Thanks to Buck and Bruddog TECMO GREY CUP 2016 IS HERE!!! This year's version has tremendous upgrades and improvements. Using GRG's base CFL ROM (with Pambazos88 added Ottawa Redblacks graphics), Buck, Bruddog and I have completed this year's version of Tecmo Grey Cup. Buck did a ton of the difficult work. Buck fixed all of the graphics, removed the halftime stats, and redid the playbooks to give offense formations continuity and competitive COM. He also gave the Pro Bowl a makeover as he coded the 2016 CFL all-star team, and the 2016 NFL all-star team, and gave them proper playbooks as well as replacing references to AFC-NFL with CFL-NFL. There is even an easter egg to change the players of the NFL all-star team to the 1991 TSB all-stars. He lessened the kickoff minimum and maximum distance by 5 yards. Buck also added a hack for directional punting which I think is fantastic. Bruddog stepped in and provided a major major upgrade when he fixed the safety glitch. The end zones were increased to 20 yards which stops shotgun plays near your own end zone of automatically becoming a safety. This fix worked two-fold, as the real CFL end zones are 20 yards. Not only did this fix the safety glitch but it's more accurate, and now you have so much more freedom to call plays when you are in the red zone which is just like the real CFL. You can still throw a fly route from the 1 yard line!!! I updated the rosters to reflect the 2016 CFL rosters at end of season. I modified both player and team sim settings to reflect the 2016 season. Buck and I decided to release the game both with Regular and Max Juice versions. I personally love the Max Juice version as with only 3 downs the field position battle feels very true to the real CFL game you see on TV. However, that mode is certainly difficult and not for novice players so the regular version is also included for those that need it or just think it's more fun. Enjoy Tecmo Grey Cup 2016!!!

    Random Thoughts

    That's good stuff mgk. Thank you for those thoughtful posts. I like what you're throwing down. I certainly hope that most people don't support those statues bc of the evil, but for the good. We can look back and destroy legacies bc they were slave owners. And rightfully so, I suppose. But not knowing what the future holds could mean the exact same thing for extraordinary people of any time. That's sad and concerning. So museums is a logical compromise like you said. I wonder what would happen if someone put a statue up on private property? I see Che Guevara on t-shirts and he's become a pop culture icon of sorts. At first, it did bother me. So I empathize with those feelings. What did I do? I got a special tattoo of him, but not in celebration. It's very visible and quite a conversation piece. I'm going to add this perspective to my discussions bc I think it will be helpful. It's basically an anti-communist tribute I suppose. For me, it makes me feel like I've risen above what happened to my family in Cuba. And don't want to see it happen here. And respectfully, I hope you're wrong about the police state of over correcting the wheel so to speak. But when killing cops is being celebrated in the streets it's a recipe for complete disaster. It's feeding the problem and giving them reason to abuse even more power. Unintended consequences are a horrible bitch.

    Everything was great. Had a blast. All the speed running going on next to us was awesome to watch. Everybody had a blast it seemed, win or lose. That play was actually 95 yards I think. I ran out of bounds at the 5 on the KR to make sure I could get a few plays off. Not to many people can say they have a 95yd TD in a Tecmo tournament under their belt. I did it against Mort with no time left to tie it! That's crazy. Mort's a great sport and incredibly fun to play with. Hope he dominates every where he goes except for when I'm there, haha. I'll definitely be back next year. I'm with you Chris. If I wasn't in the tournament, you bet your ass I was going to go looking at all the other game centers going on. Never been to any game expo before. I know that was a small-ish one but it was awesome. I can't even imagine what E3 would be like.

    Thanks for a great time, fellas! Great tourney, SammieSmith33! The Jeff George card will be cuddling next to me in bed until the next tournament. I'm going to practice knocking controllers out of opponents' hands, so I have a chance next time!

    Great job @SammieSmith33 Tourney had it all - Great Venue - lots of other stuff to do with free arcade, indie games and magic card players that make a nerdy looking guy like myself resemble a prom king. - Tons of people with 2dcon going on - (I saw Chris Kluwe, Batman, chicks in spandex and portly guys wrapped in hotel pillows) - Great group of guys between Sammies 38 brothers, the rest of the Wisconsin Dells crew, the large Iowa contingent with @noonan energy (I think 5 hour energy drinks are just Noonans sweat) - all the tecmo swag for raffels. wish I was first out and got this shirt And some great finishes. This one was right after the Pass block Saftey Glitch Happened And of course the Championship game mele at the end. Glad @RetroNathan caught it on camera. I was trying to as well. (that's my elbow that keeps getting in the way) but I didn't press record. Mark Carrier is Unstoppable.
