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.]

I can't choose simply one waifu for myself, so I've been obsessed with looking up netorare hentai. That way, I know every trick to steal all of your waifus away and keep them all to myself. It's the perfect plan! The only problem: I only have one dick. :(

Well friends, its almost time for my blog to exit the large intestine of page one into the cold, dark bowl of page two, to be flushed and forgotten. Why not throw a fap on there to ease the journey, and give it one last look before its gone?

Do not believe Chris' lies. Cyber Sleuth is nothing like Persona. It's all lies, I tell you!

They put season 2 of Young Justice on Netflix finally. Apparently, if lots of people watch it they'll consider a 3rd season. So do it now! [url]http://comicbook.com/2016/02/03/greg-weisman-teases-hope-for-young-justice-season-3/[/url]

I try to hold myself to just one waifu, but games like Persona 4 and Overwatch make it so very hard.

Woot! I hit 8888 comments!

FEAR and Resident Evil 4 were great action/horror games. It's a shame that nowadays such ideas either go one way or another. I would like to see a resurgence of that style where it's a scary/tense experience but the player has power and control.
