Has there ever been a more compelling call to arms than, “PRESS FIRE TO RUMBLE!!”?  I postulate that there has not!

Between the Animal Kings and trying to get “We’ve Only Just Begun” out of my head, this will indeed be my toughest challenge yet!

…but I’m talkin’ ‘bout NES game sequels whose stories got shafted.  Can you dig it?

I recruited Golgo 13 to help me find the 10 stupidest NES sequel plots, as summarized by only 1 screen of their introductory movies.

This was his response.

The Sinister Six have returned — and they are (from left to right):  Tom Servo, 3 heads sculpted from bubblegum, The Cowardly Lion, and Lightning Mask Guy’s Ironic Smirk.

YOU DID MAKE IT PAST LEVEL ONE YOU SLY DOG

I’ve actually been playing this game quite a bit lately, despite its open contempt for the player (incredibly puny normal form, dozens of enemies with “3-way spread shot” attacks, very finite lives and bullets, no actual continues as such) — it all boils down to “you play for 15-30 minutes then make the wrong move, and you might as well hit reset”.  I guess I got toughened up to repetition of early levels by beating my head against Spider-Man and the X-Men in Arcade’s RevengeAnyway, I legitimately got to Level 4 last night, and found that the “Continue” is basically a lie (instead of starting over at level 1, if you die in level 4, you can choose to continue in levels 2 or 3…so you have to keep winning level 3 on your next continue or its back to level 1 for you!) So punishing.  But with peppy music!
