Shatsucon ’13

This past weekend, I reconvened with some of my Shizz friends for a birthday get-together in Massachusetts (Shatsu = Sherv, the birthday boy, + Mastunami, the person who hosted). At some point early on, we spontaneously decided that we would try to beat as many games as possible during the weekend, on both emulators and original hardware.

Here’s the final spreadsheet of the over 50 games beaten.

You can see my contributions as “Ken Oh”. You’ll notice me manning my favorites, such as Rygar and Zelda 2 (the latter on original hardware, meaning I lost a couple of hours to glitching). Some of the more epic achievements were Gremlins 2, Batman, Astyanax, Castlevania III, Castlevania: Dracula X, and Street Fighter 2 (on an actual arcade cabinet, with difficulty on the DIP switch put to max). Orb-3D also requires special mention for endurance. It’s a shame that no one made it through to see the end with me, as it took me until 6:30AM to finish it. I had to leave the end screen on for the others to make note of when they woke up a few hours after that.

  1. I saw you beat Ord 3D. That’s pretty awesome! I am not familiar with Astyanax. I had to look that one up.

  2. I forgot to mention how exactly hard the Street Fighter cabinet was. I was playing Chun Li vs. Blanka, and if I did a crouching punch, every fucking time the computer would also punch like .2 seconds afterwards, overriding my attack because Blanka’s punch has higher priority. Such bullshit.
