Got started on Konami's Sunset Riders. The game is amazing in the fact that I assumed that I had done well in my practice runs, but now I must redo EVERYTHING from scratch again. Such is the life of someone who wants to break a world record that has been set so high due to highly skilled and determined gamers who came before...

    It’s absoluteky crazy the extreme arcade players take stuff to here. I started submitting on console and thought I was amazing then moved on to arcade abs got a real slap. The arcade records are possible but man does it take a lot of effort. On the bright side the effort just makes the victory that much sweeter

    I LOVE sunset Riders. I have only played the Super nintendo version tho, not the actual arcade game.

    OK so here is my current hurdle in my attempts. It isn't the first run that's the problem... It's the second run now.

    And the biggest problem is... Chief Scalpem (or Chief Racist Stereotype as I call him). I honestly don't care what you think. He's one of the hardest bosses EVER out there. Harder than even the Queen from Alien Vs. Predator arcade. There are techniques to reduce his difficult level in-game but that requires a life to be sacrificed (preferably before you fight him), but that is a massive risk to take because if you still die while fighting him you'll lose all your power-ups and still manage to beat him, you'll have to start the next level with minimal firepower. Not that hard when you are on the first run... but when you are on the second run, you are in for one HELL of a ride.

    I calculate that in order to beat Patrick Wheeler's record, I must complete two playthroughs of the game and get past at least the first two levels on the third run... I also calculate that I am stuck where the second and third record holders are. Chief Racist Stereotype's boss level, which is far harder than the first run, if that is even possible.

    I'm honestly not too well practiced on the second-run like the first. So it's going to be a challenge for sure. I will need to take a break. I spent all last night playing an I haven't even slept yet...
