The Great Retro Quiz! .02: The Virtual Console (SNES)

11:40 AM on 09.19.2007 // Chad Concelmo

Hello, ladies and gentlemen, welcome to another edition of The Great Retro Quiz! You can’t see me right now, but I am dressed like a game show host and have a very pretty lady standing next to me gesturing towards the computer monitor as if it was a shiny new car or fancy dishwasher. I am trying to set the mood.

As with last week, this quiz is all about games available on the Wii’s Virtual Console. But instead of the NES, we are moving forward in time to focus on my personal BEST CONSOLE EVER!, the Super Nintendo Entertainment System.

This one is a little harder than last week, but, again, the more you have downloaded the better chance you have to win (and by “win” I mean “do well and feel good about yourself,” since I have no prizes available yet – be patient, though)! Like before, you can check my community blog tomorrow (9/20) for the answers to see how you did.

Hit the jump to prove your retro worth! Good luck!

[UPDATE: Oh, wow, I now have a prize to give away! Because of the amazing Topher, whoever gets the most questions correct this week will win a cool Wiimote keychain (see below for a pic). Just leave your answers in the comments and I will reveal the winner tomorrow on my community blog. If there is a tie, well, this week I don't have a tiebreaker question prepared, so I will just pick a name out of a hat or something. Thanks so much, Topher; now my pretty assistant has something to model.]

Witches of Crookback Bog from Witcher 3 is the best quest in the whole game and of any game I've played in recent memory.

I was just accosted by the most gorgeous cosmetics saleswoman with an adorable Hatian-Creole accent. It's not often my attention gets that immersed in a total bullshit sales pitch. Well, that and I didn't want her to let go of my arm.

Ever thought of skipping a console generation (and not upgrading PC for years, either) because of how big your pile of shame is? I'm doing that just now.

Apparently there are cancellations on the CE versions of MGSV:TTP from Europe and North America. People getting emails saying they are cancelled and such. On top of that is that there's been unboxings that don't have the extras for the Day One edition.

I've been mad at myself all morning for missing the apostrophe in "I'll" on my Quickpost last night, but it turns out that apostrophes just don't show up on the feed! Isn't that the bee's knees?

Playing through Skies of Arcadia Legends right now. Bringing this to Steam or current gen in HD seems like a no-brainer. Make it so, Sega!

Mr. Cordoba knows a lot about CSS, so I asked him to give us a touch-up job. Here's an early sneak peek at the next big Dtoid update: Drop us a note in the comments! [url]http://www.raulcordoba.com/dtoid/[/url]

I'll never get how making an inanimate object or a plant look like an animal or just alive somehow is considered more "out of ideas" than just an animal being an animal. That seems more like the opposite of being "out of ideas" to me.
