Hey i was wondering if you guys are on the mood to talk about neat tricks on old arcade games tha might or might not have a way to pull them off. Like the diamond on mr do. Its there a way to easily get it? or is just 100% pure luck? Ive always wonder about that one. There are another ones that ive always wonder or ool tricks, or ass tricks like in the Teenage mutant ninja turtles, where you could jump of the grid in orther to avoid being hit by the enemys, but your team mates had to deal with them, that was a cool trick, or in ninja gaiden, where you could jump of the grid as well, and avoind the black ninja enemies for a while.... i would love to see some of those tricks, im a upload a video of the ones i just spoke. But the diamond in mr do,, always had me wonder....

in pac-man, if you can get the ghosts to chase you from the lower left corner area over to the right middle area shown from underneath and you keep facing "up" the ghosts can't find you. this is due to the pathfinding the ghosts have programmed, and their player chase traits, making this spot an area where they keep missing you.

Oh yeah, i love this one, and it works on the both original hardware and emulation, and i actually tried mu luck everytime i did it, i didnt knew you had to had the ghosts chase you from the lower left.
