I've watched both Billy and Steve play live. In general, Steve tends to get around 9 barrels/flames with the bottom hammer. Billy seemed to get around 11 barrels/flames with the bottom hammer. The barrel level is the level that shows up the most in the game. The whole key to getting a million is the...

Ok. Now that I'm searching around a bit more, I see I have totally missed a big discussion on this. Obviously the masses have voted and spoken. My only comment is that there are just sometimes that rules need to exist on a case by case basis. I suggest that games with this sort of control are BEST e...

Ok. I guess I'm kind of new to this on MARP. But I'm confused. I own a FrontLine machine. One joystick moves around. There is also a button to launch grenades. I have not problem with those. But then the other controller is NOT a joystick. It is a spinner that you position and then press to fire the...

My score was done using only the keyboard. No spinner or anything here. I did reassign the keys since my "Alt" button seems to open the damn Start menu in WinXP for some reason. Just started doing that a few weeks ago and I can't get it to stop.

My shirt arrived last week. I took it in to work and kept it in my cube until Chris Fitch got his and tried to wear it in front of me. He got it and came in Tuesday. I ruined his fun by telling him I got mine before he got his. :lol: Even though I'm pretty sure you shipped them out at the same time....

Bullfight was a pretty cool game. Very frustrating at first. At first I thought bull fighting might be a little barbaric. Now this game has taught me that they are so damn annoying they deserve to die! :lol: I had never played or seen this game before Tuesday (the link from the GEGOTW main page to t...

Well, there certainly wouldn't be much demand, to drive the price up. On the other hand, I'd be surprised if it was that easy to find. I've seen a few past occurances on record of these going for $100 - $200. And I've heard a number of times that the boardsets are dirt cheap. I've got over 40 arcad...

I agree with Ian on this one. This game is definatly marathonable. I can see that I'm at that level already if I didn't make stupid mistakes. I was sometimes easily going 150k on a man and then just losing a bunch doing stupid stuff all in a row. At 150k your getting more points then needed for the ...

Oh. And the bonus started much higher on later rounds but clicked off at 500 per click (unlike normal 100 per click). Not sure if that is normal or part of the glitch.

I would have posted it here origionally but just now was finally able to start posting to the forum (some problem with the Forum Barry helped fix for me.) It was really cool playing out to around round 25. It was hard to estimate score. Usually I spelled Guzzler each round and ended up getting aroun...
