This thread should be used to make people aware of recordings nobody should miss. Post about your favourite recordings here so that everybody can check them out.

My favourite is M.T's DoDonPachi. What this man does is unreal. If you haven't watched it, watch it now. If you've seen it already, watch it again.

Hard to pick a favorite among all the amazing recordings on MARP. If I have to pick something out, I think it would be all Jinx´s Metal slug 1-3 recordings.

As a favorite (overall) player, I think Hisa Chan is my personal nr1 pick though.

good selection Chad. I might end up starting up VPC to watch that bad boy.

That game is so intense.

I'll have to give it another attempt in MAME someday.

I liked it more on a real arcade machine.

cool, I really didn't know if my Mad Planets scores were truly any "good" or not. :)

the coolest recording I've seen lately is H-AML's Ninja Warriors (Japan) recording.

Of course he finishes it, the last level is very difficult... and I couldn't help but laugh at the fact that he kills the last boss and finishes the game RIGHT as the timer runs out and the character starts to explode...which is ironic since the characters "die" at the end anyway. :)

Bandit@Team2ch.jp's Gradius III (World?) Recording

Excellent recording, especially considering how hard this game is.

There are many great recordings at marp. Here are a few I like:

Mutant Night is a very bizarre yet fun game. Zek shows that after 93 stages the game ends: http://marp.retrogames.com/inp/1/b/0/ze ... _win58.zip

Bandit has a 10 million point gradius (or nemesis, or gradius II, I forget) replay where he looks like he will easily cruise to the advertised score. He unfortuanetly dies in a very tricky spot and loses what seems like over 40 men trying to get past it. When his extra man count below five, he amazingly gets through the area and after a few hours scores 10 million points. The replay shows how incredibly difficult the gradius series can be if one dies in the wrong place.

BBH shows that in survival arts, anything and everything goes in a battle to the death! One should use all of his body to destroy their opponent and BBH does just that: http://marp.retrogames.com/inp/5/d/c/bb ... mame61.zip

Violet and Hisa have some very nice Donpachi replays. Unfortunately they quit on stages 2-1 and 2-2 repsectively. Hisa will hopefully finish the game soon enough and THAT replay might become my favorite at marp. Until then, M.T's Dodonpachi inp is my must see marp replay of all time.

Hisa Chan's 1942 recording (that is no longer on MARP).
