Misc, isn't it?

I did it!

Today is Veteran's Day / Armistice day, a day I know today is usually to celebrate peace. But this day, it was slightly different: I finally did it, did what many have thought almost impossible. I had to leave my NES on for almost 2 weeks, but finally, on 11-11-11, at 3:23 PM, I beat Ninja Gaiden. Huzzah! A game even the AVGN couldn't beat (at least in his tribute review)!

Every time I close my eyes, I still see all of Act VI in my head. You must replay it So. Many. Times. Gah, stupid eagles and monkeys!

I know I'm hardly the first, and that the first game is no Ninja Gaiden III, but dammit, I'm happy with myself right now. Perseverance works! (Should I say that procrastination works? Either way, the little red light on the NES almost seemed to be taunting me every night as I went to sleep...)

Photos of the moment below. Sorry for the cell phone pics of a TV, but I had to grab my phone (the closest thing to me) to record this moment.

And now the NES is off for a well deserved rest; it did me proud, never glitched once. And then, after a break, I can finally play some other games. Once again, huzzah!

Edited to add: And see you next!

THE NEDERLANDS

  • "IT'S NETHER OVER FOR HOLLAND!"
  • "Schoop
    Hit a bloop
    Hit a bloop
    Hit a bloop be doop be doop"
  • "What the ####?

    YOU'RE INTENTIONALLY WALKING RANDALL SIMON?

    WHAT THE ####?"

  • "RANDALL SIMON INTENTIONAL WALK!

    CATS LIVING WITH DOGS! "

  • "The old "walk Randall Simon to get to Yurendell de Caster" gambit. "
  • "In play, (runs).

    UNBELIEVABLE. "

  • "Holy ####. I mean. Wow. Holy ####. "
  • "LISTEN TO THE MUSIC!

    Adagio for Strings by Barber!

    You don't get that in America, even. "

  • "As the man says, "U bent niet veel als je geen Nederlands." "
  • "Gelooft u in Mirakelen?"
  • "Are there baseball fans who missed those two DR-NED games? They deserve to be slapped by a clog. "
  • "I'm down as long as it's competitive.

    I mean, what are the odds of Australia beating Cuba...

    [Looks at camera.]

    ...right?

    [Winks. Freeze. Roll credits.] "

  • "What were the Netherland's odds of advancing? All I could find were odds of them winning the tournament, which are rightly +15000. "
  • "In Amsterdam, the party is by all accounts crazy. We're talking hookers, massive consumption of recreational drugs....

    Oh wait, that's what Amsterdam is always like. My bad. "

  • "If Jair and Martis were playing, I'd almost say the Netherlands would be a serious threat in Round 2! No way they can defeat the USA, Puerto Rico and Venezuela, right? Right?

    Right? "
