*** Strategy Guide has a website! ***

Welcome to Strategy Guide, hosted by everyone's favorite intergalactic space alien, Guido, and his pet cow Jorge! This time, Guido picks one of the toughest Nintendo games ever made, and attempts to prove it is impossible.

As promised (and on time might I add), I present to you: Episode 2! You don't need to watch episode 1 to understand this, as each episode stands on its own. Those of you who are familiar with the series should notice that the animation is a lot more fluid. To make a long story short, I changed my technique and jacked the fps from 24 to 30, for your viewing pleasure! Please enjoy the cartoon - your laughs and support keep me going.

And now for the Episode 2 FAQ, because you KNOW someone will ask!

Q: I was expecting more of the family after seeing the trailer. What gives?

A: This episode serves as a great jumping point for future installments. I now have a universe of characters at my disposal. Unfortunately, I have to introduce those characters before I can use them! So, episode 2 serves and an introduction to the Strategy Guide universe. Each following episode will contain one or more of Guido's family members.

Q: I've gotten to stage 3! Do you really suck?

A: No, I've made it to stage 3 as well (although admittedly, only a few times). This is what we in the cartoon business like to call a joke. :)

Q: Do you know the Stage Select Code for this game?

A: Yer darn tootin I do! Hold Right and press B, B, B. Release Right and press Up, B, B, B, Left, B, B, B, Down, B, B, B, Start.

Q: Are you in this for the money?

A: I'm in this because I find Guido as funny as you do!

Q: The Intro song ROCKS OUT! Where can I get more information about this band?

A: Go to RAGE's website! http://www.rage-on.de/ ... they've been around for years, and have many albums from which to choose. I recommend you buy them all. They're very talented musicians.


Very Funny, Hope for More

This is a very funny movie. I hope I see more of these on Newgrounds in the future. My only suggestion is to rate more recent crappy games.


I have to say that I never played that game as I heard it was bad, but you made it sound worse! Anywho, I enjoyed the cartoon for the majority of it's length (needs more humor).

You preach it brutha. You preach it.

This game was hard. This game is still hard. But I think that´s why I love it. Because it drove me to the brink of sanity. Because it made me scream. It made me furious. But it tempered me, it tempered me in the very flames of hell it bent me, and learned me to swallow all my emotions and fight, fight with all the anger and frustration I could possibly muster, and go to new heights of gamingness. Course, I never finished it, but the lessons it taught me was well implied on other games.

Personally though, it wasn´t the big, burly guys who did me in. IT, was on stage three. The hell-beast. The terror made electronical. The Red Arremmer. He´s the little guy who pulls the leper guys finger in the ending. I fought him. Time. After time. After Time. But I couldn´t. I couldn´t beat him. He KNEW where my attacks where going to go man, he KNEW it. Fuck Psycho Mantis, this guy CAN read minds, there is no way he could be that bad-ass if he can´t read minds. He destroyed me. Obliterated me. Tottaly, completely undid me. Every time. I mean, the official tip for that guy in all the videogame mags I read was to exploit a glitch that made him go away. But I didn´t want him to go away, I wanted to defeat him! But I couldn´t. I simply couldn´t. Well, I made it past the first guy, but Dios mio, when the second one comes, and the third, and when theres a whole freaking ARMY of those Lotus-position bastards....it´s enough to make a small boy cry. I have already sould my soul to him, in exchange for him to sparemy miserable life when his kind rises and claims Earth for it´s domain. You should too. You seriously, seriously should.
