    #1. March 1, 2015 Winning Game Playthrough/Discussion

    I'll be out of town for the beginning and I have to be up in three hours so I'm posting this in a hurry. If you guys have any issues you can hash them out amongst yourselves. If you have a copy of the original game or have it on virtual console or the like, feel free to play along with us and discuss without earning the achievements.

    1. Make sure you've setup an account at Retro Achievements.

    2. Download the emulator via their website or download retroarch. If you use retroarch, within the program you can download the core you need. If the game is NES, use FCEUMM. (Do NOT use Nestopia as the achievements don't work with that core. If the game is SNES, use BSNES Mercury Accurate, Balanced(recommended), or performance depending on the specs of your computer. You should test these cores in advance.

    3. If you have any achievements already for the game that is winning, you should delete them. You can do that here. Scroll down to the bottom and select the winning game and delete them. @Gleeok, this means you.

    4. Decide whether you will be using hardcore achievements or regular and act accordingly. Hardcore blocks save states for those that want to play the game the way it was meant to be played. You'll also get double achievement points at RA.

    5. Discuss the game here. Use spoiler tags if necessary. Feel free to link to any streams you will be hosting.

    6. When you have completed the game with 100% achievements post here with a screenshot of your RA profile for verification. Feel free to link to your profile also.

    7. There will be two awards given for 100% completion: First to finish, and first to finish hardcore. If you finish hardcore before anybody else finishes regular, you earn both awards. There will also be awards for anybody who streams the game and reviews it afterwards for AGN.com.

    8. I'm thinking 10am Eastern/9am Central is a fair start time. I'll let you guys discuss the start time here since I won't be available. Feel free to adjust it in any way necessary.

    Sorry if this is in any way confusing. I'm pressed for time and I promise next time I'll make sure it's edited properly and more organized. I'll be home March 9th at the very latest. I can't wait to get started myself. Good luck and have fun, everyone!

    Also, if you don't want to/can't use Retroarch, you can download the individual emulators from Retroachievements' site here.

    They're based on FCEUX for the NES, snes9x for SNES, Gens for Genesis, VBA for GB/GBA, and Ootake for the PC Engine. I've actually found it quicker and easier to use the individual ones, but it's all up to personal preference.

    Excited for this.
    I played the AI games as a kid, but not a ton, just random rentals or at friends places. Never owned one to play a ton.

    The Sans Hudson Bee Acheivements will probably be gotten only by those who have played the game plenty of times. Basically, you can't continue, ever, if you don't get the bee. So I probably won't get far, but I'll make an attempt.

    @MasterSwordUltima seems to have an early lead with 50% completion. However, @Tim and @War Lord seem to be playing the game on hardcore mode and are hot on his tail.

    Would anybody like to share their early impressions on this classic?

    Since I've only played the SNES ones, this is a change for me. I have one gripe and it's the flying dinosaur. It seems to be useful mostly for low fruit speed runs, more than for actually playing the damn game. That is unless you can stay low and fly dodge everything. ;_;

    Haven't even started yet because I slept in yesterday and today and had about 1-2 hours before work to get ready and eat...Gonna be at a big disadvantage because of that and because I've never played any of the games in the series. I'll try to get some time in tonight once I'm off of work.
