    Duck tales is ok. Defiantly not a bad game but kind of overrated if you ask me.

      Right? It’s nice, but, idk.. The Kirby ones are kinda under appreciated.

    Not sure if anyone has said, but if you want to learn the secret of the mine carts: You cannot press a direction while you jump or you get stuck in the cart. Try just jumping and THEN press the directional button. Much like you I died often before I learned that trick. Now it’s a piece of cake.

    It looks like he missed the hidden treasure in the African mines.

    If you press Select, you will refill your energy, but it costs $3,000,000.

    It is difficult to do (you need to use up money with the Select energy refill trick), but if you win with $0 you will get the bad ending where Scrooge lost his fortune searching for the treasures.

    If finish the game with over $10 million, you get the good ending… anything less than that but over $0 will result in the regular ending, which is what is shown in the video.

    Hey Mike, I´d recommend you to play the Ducktales game for DOS someday. I have really fond memories of it. As far as I remember you played with Huey, Dewey and Louie as characters and went mountain climbing, photographing aso. Had lot of variety. See it here:

    Next time you invite Bootsy, use him! He’s a player, not a commentator.

    These Mike & Bootsy videos are really growing on me. You guys should consider doing longer videos, maybe 30-45 minutes per game.

    Capcom generally took more time with their titles based on shows and movies. Never had a shot at playing this one growing up but I watched the show. Another great Disney game done by Capcom is Aladdin on the SNES. You can play through it fairly quick, but the challenge is collecting all the red gems throughout the stages.

    Not as good as castle of illusions on the Master System. You guys should do more Master System games.

    I love how Bootsy talks about how fun it is and he’s never played it. He is the best. Hope to see another round of Bootsy Beats soon.

    Paradoxically, most forms of anti-art have gradually been completely accepted by the art establishment as normal and conventional forms of art. Even the movements which rejected art with the most virulence are now collected by the most prestigious cultural institutions.

    When I was a kid, I found an NES game board lying on a patch of grass. I took it home, and opened my Rambo game cartridge to swap the boards. Turns out it was Duck Tales. I had always rented the game, but to find it free was even better. I love this game.

    How Long Do we have to wait for AVGN Episode 139?

    I loved this game when I was a kid. I was thinking of getting the remastered one just to see it a little different. As Mike said they didn’t add too much new things but I would of loved it if it was the same but then had option of added things after from like download. So then you could see whole new boards and new enemies.

    A game about helping the filthy rich get richer? What church do you think Scrooge goes to?

    Awesome memories playing this as a kid. Wish I still had my NES copy. Just picked up the remastered version on Steam.

    Not sure if you are aware. But there is three endings to the game. A secret good ending, awarded for having $10,000,000 or more in money earned in the game (those secret treasures help for this), an a secret bad ending. Ive never got that one, but you have to beat the game with no money. The key to uncovering this bittersweet secret, is to carefully score exactly $6,000,000 before DuckTales’ final level. You see, in addition to all of Scrooge’s pogo-stick bouncing, cane-smacking powers, he has another. And, it’s not in the instruction manual. By pressing the select button, Scrooge can refill his life bar at the cost of $3,000,000. So, get to the end with $6,000,000, take damage a few times, and two clicks of the select button later, you should be good to go. Figured you loved the game an might want to check it out sometime.
