Each week a new achievement will be chosen. Some weeks we will do achievements on obscure underplayed games and other weeks the challenge will be the hardest in that game's entire set.

If you can get the achievement you win 1 point towards the just for fun leaderboard, 2 for earning it on hardcore! (You Also must earn it in this week to get the point)

Scott: "Can I add - if you already have this achievement and want to enter the competition, please visit your settings page (www.retroachievements.org/controlpanel.php) and remove the achievement from your account first. You will find the option to remove individual achievements from your account under "reset game progress", first pick the game (Power Blade/Chrono Trigger), then the achievement ('Lord of the Power Blade/Toxic Avenger'). This will allow you to re-earn the achievement this week! Good luck all!"

Power Blade on hardcore = done :) I actually enjoyed it even though it felt like a Mega Man ripoff at points.

Once I learned the levels, I decided which were the hardest and did those first. I loosely suggest going:
2 --> 6 --> 4 = 5 --> 1 --> 3 --> 7

2 is a frustrating level where enemies can knock you into pits a lot, and it also has one of the most annoying bosses.
6 has some tight pit jumping and an annoying part with a few disappearing blocks and a boss that hits hard.
4 and 5 are about even. 4 has some pit jumping, and 5 is very long (you will run low on time if you're not quick or get lost)
1 is pretty tame, but you still have to be careful on some parts
3 is a really easy level and has the easiest boss

Also, the Power Blade powerup is awesome. It shoots through walls and you definitely want to try carrying it into the boss with you.

Power Blade done. Playing this game was weird, it felt like a mix of other NES titles. The Castlevania like hud, the Mega Man style level select, those rotating spheres from SMB3, and the Contra look alike protagonist.

>need to finish this crap fast because i'm only gonna have till thursday night to finish both next week's aotw and chrono trigger's which will take a long time and i haven't even started, among other obligations

>finish normal and absolutely destroying expert, palms sweating like mad, doing the levels form hardest imo to easiest, saved Sector 1 for last

>somehow lock up for a split-second and get knocked into spikes at the very end of the stage, resulting in a death
