    Oh you make them? Nice. TBH for college I may go for an art course but sadly it would be a close by one due to personal issues. I guess though its the first step.

    Your most crowning gaming achievement, online or offline.

    I've never done online gaming (outside of MarioKart 3DS, at which I never win) so I have exactly zero achievements to list there. Offline, I think my biggest achievement was either entirely filling the PokeDex in Pokemon Red (though since I used Missingno I don't think that really counts either) or unlocking all the unlockable content in Smash Bros Brawl and Tekken 6. Yeah... I'm really not that much of an accomplished gamer

      Your most crowning gaming achievement, online or offline.

      For me, it's not actually accomplishing any goal in a game, or showing any great feat of skill. It's actually the day that I rediscovered Tyrian. It was my favoritestestest game EVER as a kid (Like, under 5.), and I had dreams and memories that made it seem like pure magic, but I really didn't remember anything about the game, and had no clue what it was called. I searched for it all the time, and it wasn't until early 2010 that I found it again. Playing through that game again was like the best moment of my life, easily. I still haven't beaten it though... it's really hard later on lol.

        Your most crowning gaming achievement, online or offline:

        As of right now it would have to be completing Donkey Kong Country Returns with a 200% file. Each individual level demanded absolute perfection and would settle for nothing less. In total it took me about 100 hours, and my god was it ever rewarding!

        Naww Andy! You are still and accomplished gamer, dont worry you filled a whole pokedex and thats hard without WiFi trading!
        Also I can relate to the SSBB thing.. I unlocked everything on the original Smash bros.. Yes I am that awesome.

        So your most crowning achievement was getting nostalgia? Thats so cute! How old is that game?? Where did you find it? Also I assume its still the pure magic from your childhood! I get that whenever I play any pokemon game. BEST THING EVER! (Pokemon was my first videogame.)

        Also Welcome to the club
        Joshawott
        and
        Teamfail!

        @Joshawott how do you get 200% completion O.o
        @Teamfail is 20 minutes a good time?? I have no idea

          Concerning Pokémon-related achievements, mine has to be legitimately completing the entire National Dex up to the fourth generation. I didn't first complete it until Emerald, though, when getting to events was a relatively simple task. It was easier in the 4G games thanks to Pal Park and its wider range of event-receiving options.

          Elizabeth Greene? She was a bigger pain than the Supreme Hunter (second fight, too)! Freakin' instant-kill crimson tide of death! (Does anyone else get the /worst/ implication from that? or is everyone here innocent concerning anatomical innuendo?)

          On another note, I use too many big words! :D

          I'll try to be active in this club, so hopefully I can join.

          Current Console of Choice: PS2. The console just blew me away. I didn't even expect to enjoy it that much.
          Favourite Game: Mother 3. Strange, funny, and heartrending.
          Mario or Luigi? Luigi. I've been the little brother for most of my life, so I think I can relate with him more.

          Your most crowning gaming achievement, online or offline.

          I'm pretty pathetic on anything that's a crowning moment of awesome. I don't think I have anything crowning to boast online. Offline though, I'm pretty proud of beating the frustratingly difficult Mother/Earthbound Zero. I also caught all catchable legendaries from Gen I - Gen IV in the Pokémon games I played, I think that was the greatest achievement I could ever accomplish in my Pokémon games. Plus I'm pretty happy to have beaten Unknown from BBS using the slowest character in the game. Just had to take many beatings, until I finally got it. I think the first one made me feel accomplished the most, though.

            - Collect all the puzzle pieces
            - Earn a shiny gold medal in each level

              So anyone here heard of or use RPG Maker? Seems very interesting. Saw a few of the finished games and they look very well done. I'm actually testing it out and thinking of using it for a rpg idea I have had for ages.

              20 minutes is a really good time. Someone has a GB Longplay that's about 33 minutes.

              Welcome Cid.
              Your achievements are still impressive, beating Unknown with a slow character must have been torturous!

              Man I hate your text colour, so difficult to read

              So when you 100% the game you really 200% it o.O How is it possible to get over 100% completion.. I'm totally lost'
              Also whats mirror mode? Is everything flipped and inverted?

              I've seen some games made with it I think..
              The games look pretty much all the same though.. but I think its fairly good starter program if you want to get into some game making, you could even use game maker if you really want to start off easy.

              Is that the original one? If it is I watched a video of it where the guy finished it in like 11 minutes, it was insane!!

                  The best program for game making by far is multimedia fusion 2. Costs a good amount of money if you're not willing to 'acquire' it though. lol

                    Oh I usually have a special way of getting programs. XD

                    Have you used it a long time?

                    Yeah, I've used it since October, so like 7-8 months. You can learn to make games within a few days with that program, (very simple ones of course) and within a few months, you could be making games for real. It can only do 2D games though.

                    The Apples and Oranges link in my sig was made after like a week of using the program.

                      Actually, no. For one to merely get a 100% file, they must collect all the 'KONG' letters and puzzle pieces. Collecting all of the 'KONG' letters will unlock the Golden Temple. If that is conquered, Mirror Mode will be unlocked accordingly.

                      To answer your other question, you're pretty spot-on with the exception of a few key details. In Mirror Mode, Diddy Kong is inaccessible and the player only gets one heart as opposed to the regular two. One hit, and the player must start from the last checkpoint. Believe you me, it's much harder than it sounds, as is trying to upgrade a regular gold medal to a shiny gold medal.

                      haha Classic gif!
                      Oh that still sounds a bit weird to me, but i guess thats how they made the game and it does sound like a VERY impressive achievement to 200% a game.

                      @Capt
                      Do you make games as well :O

                      @Quilava
                      How long have you been making games for? What kind of games do you make?

                      @Torisora
                      Have you tried creating games before?

                      Whats the most time you've put into one game??

                        I will have to say Resident Evil 2 I still have a save file from when I was 6th grader. I spent so many long days and night playing that game. Such good times.

                        Most time into one game... I think I have over 500 hours across all my Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep files. After that, I probably have 300 hours in Kingdom Hearts II and Pokemon Diamond, and then another ~200 in Tales of the Abyss. I'm pretty sure those are my tops.
