Question, since I could simply use a password to reach Dracula in Castlevania IV, do I need to make a video of my whole run?

 

Well as mentioned before, we are trying to hold to an honor code that people are playing these games legitimately and not cheating to beat them. It is one thing to look at a guide to help you out if you are having trouble, it is another to use a code to skip the game and go right to the end of it.

I imagine next year would give us N64 games, if this becomes a yearly event (which I assume and hope it is, considering Chris made a point about having the year on the badges)

Well N64 games wouldnt be a problem, or even PS1 ones, since though have been emulated with some sucess, the problem with Saturn is availbility and the lack of competent emulators

Yeah... Your point is? This event is running till New years, that's plenty of time to complete say, Mario 64 or Goldeneye.

Then go ahead and complete it. There still won't be an award for it, though; because this is by design and event for MD/SNES games.

While the time may be available, it isn't the purpose of this event. There may be an event in the future which will involve other consoles.

 

The choice of console(s) was the generation in which Sonic the Hedgehog was first introduced, not when Mario first went 3D or Rare created a modern console FPS.

What about Sonic 3D Blast game? Will that work since it is on the Genesis? What about cheating can that work? What if there's ending screen and credits with it? Where would this picture go to? I am new at this anyway! smile.png

Yes or No to Sonic 3D Blast? The only game I beat on the Genesis and the only Sonic game I beat? Otherwise this be lost cause for me. Oh well at least I did try that count! smile.png

It says any Sonic sidescrolling platformer. With that said, I don't think 3D Blast would count.

So does Sonic 3 complete count?

If you're referring to the game including the snap on technology (+Knuckles), then yes. But I encourage everybody with questions like these to read the topic as I've already stated the list of eligible Sonic the Hedgehog games a few times now and once with a very clear list.
