Either we throw the list to randomizer and take say first 10 in that order... or everybody votes for say their favourite 10 titles from the list and we give points for each pick so that first pick is 10 points, 2nd 9 points etc...

There's various picks in PMs and facebook too (I assume) so it's getting to be complex.

Well somebody post them in this thread then. :)

I'd favour a couple days voting period for everyone to vote their 10 picks from the list. Or maybe put them all in randomizer and then vote from a random selection of 10 games?

I may not be much cooperation because I do not have enough time, but I'll do as much as I can.

I can't, sorry... I told Valter I was going to consider participating because I really wanted to, but I shouldn't.
On July I start on my new job (after 10 years of working on my current job!) and I want to focus on it.

Hopefully next time I will be able to participate.
Go MARP team!!!

I like both these games, hehe. Black Widow in general would be a good tourney choice, games wouldn't go too long because it's so hard. Princess Clara Daisakusen I've completely forgotten everything about but could probably pick back up...

Well going back to the list that Tommi compiled, these are the games I personally would be interested in playing:

20 Gaplus
... that's less than I thought, lol. And as much as I like Rygar and Chelnov, they both have leeching issues that drag the games down IMO (Chelnov less so, as it consists entirely of suiciding on later bosses at the same time you kill them), but I'd certainly play them if they popped up in the tourney. Blood Bros also has an infinite leech trick that people would have to look out for.

Anyway a few I was thinking about:

Crime City (relatively simple late 80's platformer, an unusual scoring trick but no leeching)
Night Striker (Space Harrier-style behind-the-ship shooter, maybe not suitable because of analog controls)
Rescue (dual joystick game. maybe too infuriating hehe)
Time Pilot 84 (I know gstrain is good at this too)
Shock Troopers (you know I have to nominate this. Although in a 20-game format, there is not that much time to learn how to play it which isn't the ideal format I would like to see for it in a tournament. Obviously I'd get 1st on it but I dunno about everyone else so... maybe not.)

I want to nominate Sinistar since we've got me and Steve Wagner on the same team, but it's not the same on an 8-way stick and I'd expect the RU people to complain because it's not playable on the RU site for some reason.

Decisions, decisions...

Ha ha I played this Saturday night a bit. Luckily there's a dedicated cab near me, but I think it's not too much of a disadvantage playing on an 8 way stick. A lot of players will hold the stick constantly (Kappa?) on a direction rather than really use the 49 way movement. Although I have never tried to play with an 8 way stick, only going by what I have read. I imagine if you are an experienced player on the game it will be more noticeable.

I was thinking of suggesting Time Pilot 84 and also Exerion as well, so would be happy with either of those games. :)

A few of the other games I was thinking from the 'classic' period, or more accurately from when I was a lot younger and spent time popping 'twennies' in them all have marathon problems:

Gyruss, Juno First, Xevious

So I've ruled them out. (Even suggesting 5 lives would still be problematic..)

'twennies' = 20 cent coins = what we 'used' to pay for games in NZ back in the early 80s..... other than the greedy arcade people who sometimes charged 40 cents per game... or in the case of Defender when it was first released, 60 cents per game!!!

Cheers,
BeeJay.
