    Someone beat Cuphead from start to finish in 90 minutes... using 2 DDR pads as controllers.

    It is! Only played a couple levels to start, but wow, the little touches on each level.

    And holy wah is this a tough game!! Not in the way that I want to through my controller through my TV when EA's NHL series tilts the ice and I lose a game, but in a "Jesus, I know I can do this," way where you lose track of time trying to get through each level. It takes a couple of deaths to figure out the pattern. Really reminds me of early platformers (which is what they wanted, especially Contra).

    Also, holy crap is the Mini SNES awesome! Sure it's missing a bunch of potential games, but what a trip in the way back machine.
    Watching ProtonJon run it right now.

    They had to be. They couldn't cram 100 hours of content onto those ROMs, so they had to make them Nintendo Hard to give them some sense of replay value (and keep the rentals rolling in at Blockbuster.)

    Plus we were all used to arcade games which were specifically designed to suck quarters as efficiently as possible.

    Wow. Cuphead is excellent.

    Great visuals and music. Just enough difficulty to require you to play well, not just sleepwalk thru levels.

    And only $20.

    Fiddling around with the new Synthetic Dawn DLC on Stellaris, and my science ship just arrived in the Covfefe system.

    Super easy using the Amazon Treasure Truck. https://www.amazon.com/b?node=15020057011

    Select cities have the service available, but pretty cool.

    Just pre-ordered the South Park game. Looks pretty fun.

    Re: Official Video Games Thread VIII: Titans are destined to fall

    Got SNES from GameStop this morning...

    Tried Target, but it was a gong show. There was a group of 20-30 people that seemed to be there just to flip these things. They were constantly talking to 3 guys and those guys also handed out cash and cards to the group. Target staff didn't really have any organization either. I'd be more annoyed if I didn't get an SNES I guess.

    These literally weren't even on my radar, but just got a text from the Amazon Treasure Truck in the area. They are posted up at a relatively nearby mall, order through Amazon and pick up at the truck today. Snagged one, why not. No markup either.
