Hey.. I really like the new games menu.. it kind of makes me cry, because it reminds me of all my favorite old Nintendo games where you ran around and talked to different people and did stuff and such. I wish they had those kind of games today. Nowadays, it's all about stellar graphics and 3-D panoramic views, which is cool, but there was something so neat about the simplicity.. they were more mysterious.

Oh, but those days are gone.. gone and shall never return.

:((

I love the new games menu! They put all the old, bad ones in an archive, and are left with: The Videlextrix ones, the ones mentioned in StrongBadEmail/videogames, and that marshie one. Okay, so they still have some bad ones, but it's still neat!

I like that they moved that marhie game onto it, since that one hasn't been on the site since last October.

Has anybody else noticed Thy Dungeonman 2 is missing? What's up with that?

Well, "Pigs on head" is missing. I don't know why they didn't put them on. I hope they remember to upgrade the games menu when Peasents Quest comes.

The new Games menu is awesome! I especially like the little glimpses of 20X6 The Cheat and Coach Z. Here's hoping they'll add the 20X6 versions of the other characters.

You can get to Thy Dungeonman 2 and Pigs On Head by clicking on the link to the Videlectrix website.

I like this. It's so much more... awesomer than the old one. 20X6 The Cheat looks really weird. My version looked better...

At the bottom of the menu it says "1982 Videlectrix.com."

Is it just me, or do the "graphics" of the menu look way too good for 1982? They look very much like the graphics of an early-90s SNES game (1992 would be more like it).

There are power-ups that come down after you wait awhile.


They look like this...

1982 isn't much of a stretch if it's an arcade game. For instance, Punch-Out!! was released in 1984, a scant two years later and it has graphics that go waaay beyond its NES counterpart, even though the NES version was made three years later, in 1987. Even the C64 (which was brand new in 1982) can have "SNES-like" graphics... I've seen some on the title screen of one game, whose name I don't remember. But it was only on the title screen.

20X6 Coach Z is awesome. 20X6 The Cheat is the weird one.
I think the best-looking ship is Stinkoman's (Strong Bad's wrestling mask).

No. Those are the only upgrades available right now. The Brothers Chaps might update it later.

I love the new games menu because it seriously reminds me of some real games... I mean, the space one is just like Galaxian, and then the one where he's flying over grass and buildings and stuff TOTALLY reminds me of the game Thunder Blade (the original)... honestly, did anyone else play that game? It kind of reminds me of Magnatron, too. These are old Commodore 64 games, by the way. :mrgreen:
