Game of the Month Captain: Renaissance2K GameTZ Subscriber Triple Gold Good Trader Has Written 4 Reviews


June 2021 Edition
PlayStation Sega Saturn Darkstalkers 3 / Vampire Savior
By "executive order" or something, Vampire Savior: The Lord of Vampire - otherwise
known as Darkstalkers 3 is June's Game of the Month.

Darkstalkers 3 is an coin arcade game* that saw home ports to the PlayStation PlayStation
and Sega Saturn Saturn. It was also featured in Darkstalkers collections on the PlayStation 2
PlayStation 2 (in Japan only), Microsoft Xbox 360 Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 PlayStation 3. It's also
a downloadable PS1 classic. Any of these versions is a good option for a playthrough.

Play through Darkstalkers 3 on any platform before July 1 to earn a badge for the
character you used. The game has 18 playable characters, plus two secret characters
in some ports. Gotta catch 'em all!

Because of the huge overhead for badges this month, I'll be making them on demand
as participants complete the game with each character.

* Darkstalkers 3 is playable on MiSTer via Jotego's CPS2 core, which is currently
in Beta. The Beta is available from Patreon, which start at $5/month. This guy has a number of incredible arcade
cores in the pipeline, but even if you can't commit to a monthly recurring donation,
a single payment gives you access to the Street Fighter Alpha series, the Marvel
vs. series, and a bunch of other classic Capcom arcade games.


May 2021 Edition
Sega Genesis PlayStation Sega Master System Strider

Play through Strider on any platform before June 1 to earn the Strider, standing
still and looking cool
badge.

Play it on two platforms to earn the Strider, vertical slash badge.

Play it on three platforms to earn the Strider, legion badge.

Sure, all those GIFs are taken from Marvel vs. Capcom and not the original Strider
game, but I'm calling an audible because his hyper combo is cool. You know what else
is cool? Posting your #BeatIt screenshots... but I'm still not going to make you.


April 2021 Edition
Neo Geo Metal Slug X

Play through Metal Slux X on any platform before May 1 to earn the Metal Slug
Type-R
badge.

{imgt}https://i.imgur.com/... 75 75{imgt}
You don't have to post a #BeatIt screenshot, but I'll assume you're lying if you don't.


March 2021 Edition
Super Nintendo Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV

Play through Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV on one platform - the arcade original,
the famed Super Nintendo port, one of the maligned 3D remakes, or another version
I've missed - before April 1 to earn the Leonardo badge.

{imgt}https://i.imgur.com/... 75 75{imgt}
Play through the game on an additional platform before the deadline to earn the
Donatello badge.

{imgt}https://i.imgur.com/... 75 75{imgt}
You have the option of posting your #BeatIt photos if you want me to nod approvingly
at your accomplishment, Johnson-style.



February 2021 Edition
Super Nintendo Super Turrican

Play through Super Turrican before March 1 to earn the Turrican badge.
{imgt}https://i.imgur.com/... 128 140{imgt}

Screenshots/Photos of your #BeatIt moment please your GOTM overlord, but they are
not required.



January 2021 Edition
Nintendo Entertainment System Jackal
Play through Jackal on one platform before February 1 to earn the Jackal Squad
badge.

{imgt}https://i.imgur.com/... 96 96{imgt}
If you decide to play through a second time on a different platform, you'll also
earn the Medium Tank badge.

{imgt}https://i.imgur.com/... 96 96{imgt}
For each platform you play through beyond the second (third, fourth, etc.), you'll earn a Heavy Tank badge.

I've never played this game. It's pretty good, a solid beat em up. 7.5 out of 10.

Makes me nostalgic for TMNT 2

Either keep it for 50 years, or try to sell it now while people are spending stimulus/tax refund money.

For those of us without e-vote-tile dysfunction, it's time to vote for next month's game.

Nominees
Metal Slug X Neo Geo PlayStation
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Arcade Game Nintendo Entertainment System
The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past Super Nintendo Game Boy Advance
Shadow Man PlayStation Nintendo 64 Sega Dreamcast
Ghouls 'n' Ghosts Sega Genesis Sega Master System Amiga Commodore 64 NEC Super Grafx

(We really need an arcade icon.)

Either publicly in this thread or privately in a PM to me, give each nominee 0-5 points. Omitting a nominee is equivalent to giving it a vote of 0. The game with the highest score by the end of the month will be the April 2021 GOTM.

Here are my votes:

Metal Slug X - 4
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Arcade Game - 4
The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past - 5
Shadow Man - 3
Ghouls 'n' Ghosts - 3

I think "premature e-vote-tulation" is the more accurate diagnosis, but whatever. I'm not a doctor.

Metal Slug X 5
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Arcade Game 4
The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past 2
Shadow Man 3

I wanted to vote higher for Zelda LttP, but I'd like to not have 3 SNES games in a row... that said if it wins I'll be happy.

Like on an arcade 1UP? If I had an opportunity to play this on that I might have been
Pretty psyched to play this, I was falling asleep on the 1st or 2nd in front of my SNES.
Been meaning to at least try to get through it again ever since.
Either way congrats and that's a pretty cool screenshot!

Thanks. It's an atgames. It's a pretty sweet machine that you can put any arcade game on it you want (granted if the chip can handle it. The cut off point is something like Golden Axe II, which has a lot of stuff going on. So it runs a lot of games, not much after 2003'ish.).
