But the blocky c64 chicks kept me going
That's just a demo, not a game, featuring just the one 'chick'.

Rotate the joystick to rotate her hand...

Garou: Mark of the Wolves is available for the Dreamcast. Very nice it is too, considered by many to be the best fighter on the system.

i still think being caught masturbating to Way of the Exploding Fist wins hands down (or hands up - or hands up and down..)

Damn right! I think you've set a standard I will use to judge every embarrassing I have for the rest of my life. No matter what, I'll be able to say: 'At least I wasn't masturbating.'

That is, assuming I'm not masturbating. Otherwise, I'll probably have to resort to: 'Well, at least my mum didn't catch me.'

Mind you, I think col75's embarrassing moment runs a close second to yours. Everyone else might as well pack up and go home.

I also once shipped softporn to my mother-in-laws house. For the record all I was thinking about was saving on the shipping costs and expanding my 3DO collection. difficult conversation that.

erm, i'd try to resist that if i were you. what if you had an embarrassing moment at work with the boss; at the in-laws sunday dinner; or during a wedding?

i don't think "at least i wasn't masturbating" would be looked upon as a desirable and face-saving response.. (at least it has never worked for me yet..)

:lol: Good point. Particularly if you add, 'Unlike that one time when...' and bust out the Exploding Fist anecdote.

2 years ago I got my Xbox set up to live and thought,'Right, I'm on live now and I'll get some pro evo 4 going, who wants a beating?' First game I play online I get my ass whipped 9-0. :(

Rushing out the day I got my Wii to buy a wireless router only to realise later that day when I was £80 poorer that none of the game were online enabled :evil:

Luckily I managed to find a use for the router 4 months later when I bought a 360 :D

My most recent is getting an achievement in guitar Hero 2 on 360.

"Achievement Unlocked"
Happy days I thought, wonder what it is.
"Long Road Ahead Award - Fail a song on Easy."
Aw crap - and to top it off my dad was watching me play!

I suppose thats 2 embarassing moments as nobody can play that game and not look silly!
I'd buy that for a dollar!

It would have to be me AND my mate, after WEEKS of practice on Tony Hawks 3, thinking we were Gods, passing the pad to his 11 yr old son (who we later discovered also owned the game) and then feeling the colour drain from our faces as he hammered our scores into the ground about 8 times over, discovering secret areas we had never seen, and then to make it worse, saying things like "You DIDN'T know you could link tricks up for massive combos and points?". We started playing Vice city after that, and I can't bear ANY of the THPS games now. Talk about student overtaking the masters.

Losing in the semi final of the UK MK3 tournament to a 9 year old. Worst thing is, i beat him flawless in round 1 with Smoke and hit some mega kombos. The rest is just a blur...i always hated Sonya.
