N64Forever Beats 'Em All!; Let's Finish What the 2012-13 N64 Game-Off Started!

:n64: N64Forever Beats 'Em All! :n64:
The 2012-13 N64 Game-off was a smashing success. 152 titles were completed, which made the Staff wonder...Could our members beat every NTSC-U and PAL N64 title (and a few NTSC-J titles for good measure)? We are betting the answer is YES! So what the 2012-13 Game-Off started, N64 Beats 'Em All will now finish . . . without a stated deadline (at least for now).

Rules:
1. Only 1 Game can be 'Claimed' per person at a time - multiple people are free to beat the same game if desired but first person to claim it, gets it (please check THE BEATEN and THE HIT LIST to make sure the game you want to claim is not already take. CLAIMS ARE ONLY GOOD FOR 1 MONTH. If you post that you are actively playing the game and need more time, an additional month will be granted.
2. Difficulty level does not matter
3. Sports games are to be beaten via a championship.
4. Some games have no actual ending (particularly those marked with an "#" on the Hit List) so state what you challenged yourself to do to "complete" the game in a reasonable (and respectable) manner.
5. Beating the final boss (if there is one) is mandatory - 100% completion is not required, but welcomed.
6. After you beat the game, take and post a screen shot of the ending credits and/or any screen proving completion. IF YOU HAVE VIDEO CAPTURE CAPABILITY, please consider recording and posting final boss battles.
7. Please let us know how long it took you to beat the game (actual duration in approximate hours, as well as length of time Ex. 2 weeks, a month, etc.), what you completed (final boss, 100% etc), and your personal enjoyment level. REMEMBER, others here will want to know if the game you beat is worth their time.
8. The Staff will regularly update "THE BEATEN" and "THE HIT LIST".
9. Keep an open mind to playing games you normally wouldn't play (or finish) . . . this was one of the best experiences from the Game-Off.

ACHIEVEMENT LEVELS

THE BEATEN (308)


THE HIT LIST (current through Post#784)

I haven't got any of these games :( Can we use emulators? If so I will do Pokemon Puzzle League.
Good question! Emulated games legally downloaded (i.e. Wii's Virtual Console) are fine; illegal ROMs are not as our site disapproves of same. Hope this helps!

@Vekoman: Shindou SM64 has been beaten. Shindou Wave Race has not, though.

I think we all will be very happy with beating all NTSC-U and PAL titles; so Electric Fire Pen may go unbeaten. But hopefully someone will give it a whirl.

Glitchy games: If a game has no ending or cannot be beaten due to a glitch, I think we can declare it beaten if beaten to the point of the glitch (provided explanation given).

@Guite: Outstanding. Welcome aboard!

Red, no way can we disqualify you under those circumstances. I would ask that you give us a good write up after you beat the game, using you're awesome writing talents to describe the final battle, your feelungs of joy, relief, accomplishment, etc. upon beating the game. That would suffice for me (heck, I'd look forward to it)!

superman 64 is on the completed and "claim" list, I was tempted to claim it!
Sry about that, thanks for letting me know. All fixed.

I am very much enjoying FINALLY delving into NFL Blitz. My Broncos are 3-0 (well, after a few restarts and non-saves). Fun game; I would have not pierced the surface of outside of our collective quest.

Great update, NLuke99! I guess you are going for 100% completion, which is not necessary, but certainly welcomed!

My Broncos are 13-0 in NFL Blitz, and looking forward to the playoffs. (If this were Super Tecmo Bowl, I'd be sitting all of my starters Weeks 14-17 for fear of those dreaded injuries, but no such worries in Blitz :yeah: ).

@Faulty: You are in time. I have asked those without photo capability to give us a short but detailed write-up of the game/final battle as proof of victory. Would you please do that so we can strike Re-Volt from the Hit List? :w00t:

NFL Blitz has been beaten! Took my about 12 hours on "easy", and enjoyed it alot.
Spoiler: click to toggle

My Broncos when undefeated riding the legs on John Elway. In the Super Bowl, the Bears when ahead with 0:19 left. But 3 John Elway scrambles later, we took the lead for good.

Even on easy, the computer cheats all the time. If you get a defensive stop, your offensive is very likely to turn it over on the next possession. If you give the AI the ball back with little time remaining in the half, brace yourself as it offensive players can barely be tackled. Still boat loads of fun and every game goes down to the wire. I look forward to playing some of the sequels soon.

Definitely NOT an "E for Everyone" title. The cheerleader appears at halftime in various poses, many of which are a bit revealing. During the game, the announcer comments on the late hits. One of his quips is, "What the hell is wrong with that guy?!?"

Correction: it is rated E :rofl:

Update: I'll claim Blitz 2000. Flutie and the Bills.

Welcome back, Majora! You got it, bud!

NFL Blitz 2000 has been completed. Doug Flutie and the Buffalo Bills won the Super Bowl after finishing the season 15-1. The only loss was an epic 3 overtime loss to the Ravens.

NFL Blitz 2000 has nice tight controls and is exhilerating to play like the original. The games seem to take a bit longer, and playing defense is a little easier. But you still need to manage the clock to get the last possession bc the computer's rubberband AI will NOT let you take more than a 7-point lead. In fact tge ONLY time I went up by more, the game FROZE as the ball sailed through the uprights to make my 7-point lead a 10-point lead. Anyway, fun to play and now I'm torn between keeping on with Blitz or playing Madden to copare the two series. Here's the victory shot:

Next victim: NFL Blitz 2001

***GIVEAWAY OFFER****
Posted Image
The next member to beat a N64 title for N64Forever Beats 'Em All will receive from me, BDR, a FREE loose copy of Big Mountain 2000 (NTSC). It is a former rental with lots of stickers and markings to prove it, but hey, it's free! It's also a pretty underrated skiing/snowboarding racer in my book.

For this promotion, I'm gonna have to ask for photo proof of completion.

So have at it.

Hi DJ Cat! That would be great if you could knock off Hydro Thunder. Great game, but I've never progressed past the course (China?) where you have the earn a boost at the start to bunny hop the river bank.

I'll mark you down for it. If you beat it, great. If not, no worries.

@Italia: if. You beat them during the Game-off period (started July 1, 2012) they will count if you post the pics. But as they were beaten before the giveaway was announced, they would not count for that.

And the winner of the Big Mountain 2000 cart giveaway is....ME!
(Kidding! :P )

But I did beat NFL Blitz 2001 (Medium/6.5 hours). The St. Louis Rams--"The Greatest Show on Turf"--went 14-2 before winning the Super Bowl in a 41-10 trouncing of Jacksonville Jaguars. Another victory, another hottie:
Spoiler: click to toggle

This was the best installment of Blitz yet. Players look less blocky, the controls remain tight, and you can FINALLY get defensive stops if you play aggressively and smart. My only complaint is that the new stadiums and playing surfaces are flat out UGLY.

Although I am dying to play some Madden, I'll go for the series sweep by claiming NFL Blitz Special Edition next. Dante Culpepper, here I come!

Wow, the uber-n64 gamer Majora's Mask has done it again! MM, you are entitled to the Big Mountain 64 prize. Please PM me with your shipping info to claim. And looking fwd to your taking down another NTSC-J exclusive!

Great job, DJ Cat, on Hydro Thunder! Yes please post a pic of all boats unlocked for the good of the thread. Please have at Airboarders! It presently sits in my PAL N64, but I was so confused about controls, purpose, everything that I did not claim it myself. It would be cool to cross this non-US release off the list for sure.

@cyan: guides and walkthroughs are fine. Cheat codes are not.

That would be an AWESOME JP title to beat; I've got my fingers crossed someone can beat that one and Bangai-O.

And nice catch on deadly arts/GASP. Thanks!

Excellent work Cat-man! :yeah: Glad the glichiness stopped. I had NFL Blitz S.E. freeze on me in the fourth quarter of what would have been a rare easy win.
What are they doing?!?

Hoping it was random, as your freeze seems to have been.

I would like to help with posting your completion picture . . . I'll see if I can access your pics via your photobucket user name.

Good luck with Chopper Attack.
