Gauntlet....any interest.. releases in over a month
« on: July 25, 2014, 10:34:31 AM »
Man i remember this quarter sucking game. Wasn't this the first 4 player arcade box? My friends and i used to go play this when we were supposed to be in school .. I  remember almost coming to blows over this game. I mean what dumb motherFu**er is going to eat my Turkey leg when i 'm low on health and his health is full ..... "warrior needs food badly"  anybody like that needs a beatdown ;D. Nostalgia might get me on this one alone.

Looks a little bloodier than I remember.  Might be worth getting at some to play with friends.  I'm surprised it isn't coming out for consoles too.

I can remember getting mighty pissed at this game at the arcades and that 8bit Nintendo version.  Somehow I kept going back for more, glutton for punishment!

Same memories here of loving this game but oh how it would trigger a temper...

I'd get this, but not for twenty bucks. If it goes on sale I'd go for it, though.

Gauntlet is one of my all time favorite arcade games.  Many a quarter I dropped just to get the "...needs food badly" to amp up the panic as monsters swarmed at you from all directions.

I'll get it and hope it doesn't ruin my nostalgic memories.

"Elf needs food badly".

Stupid elf. I still hate him.

Loved this game too. If you all will be getting it let me know and I will too.

What the hell did the wizard say in the game anyway?   It always sounded like "faggy-beefy" to me.

I'd do a multiplayer with this bunch, as long as some kind of chat worked. Half the fun would be to hear you guys cursing over this game.  :2funny:
