Spinner 8 and I both wore our Berserker tshirts the same day! Some dude's wife was enamored with BMF's Super Blob Brothers and it was pretty awesome to see! Some other dudes had some hacked virtual boys for multiplayer! I drunkly told some kid How It Is in our hotel room party for at least 20 minutes and probably scarred him for life!

edit: haha, and I drunkly called Sardius a pussy or something for showing up late for getting a flat tire, was that right? jesus christ.

That CGE was a great trip.

Congratulations, everybody! I've always enjoyed seeing what you guys come up with, and the efforts that you all take to research the stories behind the games as well, instead of just relying on hearsay. To another ten years!

Congrats, guys. I've always loved what you guys do... this place has remained in my bookmarks and I've continued to lurk here for ten years. Wow... I feel old.

I'm looking forward to another decade of awesomeness! Smile

Yeah, I remember reading about the Famicom Disk System and unreleased NES games on NES World in junior high, and I'm 28!

I'm 40 and I remember when http://www.atarihq.com/tsr/ used to get updated on a regular basis. And I love that NES World is still going strong. I remember finding that one while visiting my uncle in Chicago and playing on his computer with this new internet thing in the mid 90s.

Lost Levels has been this NES lovers dream site though, getting to play NES games I only read about in old Nintendo Power mags and seeing listed in the "Coming Soon" section and wondering what happened to them. California Raisins was the one I will remember the most. RIP The Thumb.

Thanks for all this Frank and letting us join in on the ride.

I was first introduced to the legend of Bio Force Frank via the TheRedeye.net. Warm, crusty french bread of a gaming website in a internet full of Wonder breads and stale rolls.
Happy Anniversary Frank.

He's on Youtube posting videos as myasshasworms.

Look at his SunsetRiders review.

CONGRATURATION on 10 years of Lost Levels!

People are always posting interesting information, and amazing new prototypes continue to turn up. It's still an exciting place to be!

Cheers to Frank, and everyone who contributed to the site (and in the greater context, game preservation!) over the years. YOU ARE A SUPER PLAYER!

Here's to the next 10!

Congrats Lost Levels! I have to admit that without your guy's help, I doubt I would have kept SNES Central going for as long as I have. Might have had something to do with this. ;)

Looking forward to the next article, as always.

Happy 10th indeed.

Think I ended up signing up when the site was posted on the Nesworld forums. Having spent so much time playing games in my teens and stuff, I had to find "new challenges/games" by whoring out my time to the unreleased ones!

(Speaking of NES World's age too; I remember that before I even got internet connectivity at home, I used to have a notebook where I wrote down addresses to various sites; I marked NES World with a star!)

A bit late to the party as usual, but yeah, congrats!

I hope the next ten years have less long lulls between releases. Razz

Behind every great man, there is a woman, or sometimes another dude, and it's not sexual, they're both straight, but anyway, that's me.

You're Welcome Everyone, for all the stuff Frank did slightly better because I was around to talk to.
