Retro Video Game Challenge Vol. 1 – Nintendo Ice Hockey

Saturday, March 12, 2016
By Louis Magnifico

Retro Video GamesThis Traveling Twosome video is the first in what will be an ongoing series of Battle of the Sexes Retro Video Game Challenges between Louis and Char Magnifico.  Future videos will include Pong, a Pinball Machine competition, Pac Man, Q*bert, Galaxian, Super Mario Brothers, and more!

First up in our series:  Nintendo Ice Hockey!  We know – this is a slightly unusual game to kick off the series.  It doesn’t carry the same weight as Pac Man or Space Invaders… but we chose this one for a special, personal reason.  Though it has been decades since Louis has played the game, it is a game at which he has never lost.  And, more interestingly, it is a game which Char has never played.  Sound familiar?  Paper football, anyone?

So… check out the first video in this series and let us know what you think after you’ve watched it!  Do you think Louis will remain undefeated?  Has Char’s Girl Power met its match?  Or will Louis underestimate Char once again?  Watch and see!

For our fans who like to watch our productions on TV rather than the internet, this show will begin airing on our Roku TV Channel on March 14, 2016.

    WTF! Louis won? Damn it, Char! You have to give her a rematch, Louis!

    You should have worn the Silver Seductress costume for the game! That would have given you the extra Girl Power! All you needed was one little point!

    Great video, though!

    Char, you have nothing to be ashamed of! You hardly knew how to play during training but came THIS CLOSE to beating Louis when you had to face him! A REMATCH IS IN ORDER!

    I love the video and look forward to all the retro game competitions coming up! BUT! I thought Char was going to come back and win. I really can’t believe you let Louis beat you, Char! I feel cheated somehow in this video! I need to see a Char victory at something SOON! Louis, she only lost because she scored against her own goal – a novice’s mistake. Give her a rematch, you have to admit she deserves one! She ALMOST beat your ass her first time playing! Come on!

    Still, a great video to watch. And the Silver Seductress scene was HOT AND SEXY!!!!!!!

    Louis, go ahead and get in all of your gloating now. All of your words will have to be eaten once you hold a rematch and Char kicks your ass!

    Char, if you hadn’t scored on yourself that one point, the game would not have been tied, you would have been up by 1 at the end of the final period! So technically, you could make an argument that Louis didn’t beat you on his own. It took your help! LOL

    I agree with the calls for a rematch! And I agree you should play in the Silver Seductress costume like you promised!

    I know, I know chess first. But after that maybe?

    I kinda expected Louis would win this game which is why I started saying early on that I was going to be on Louis’s side for this competition. Char, when you said you’d wear the Silver Seductress costume for the video, I switched sides. You changed your mind and went without the costume so I suppose had to be fair and switch my side again. Therefore, ALRIGHT! GO LOUIS! WE DID IT! 🙂

    Now, I told you already, I hoped that losing this game would make you all the more determined you’d be more ferocious in your next competitions against Louis and never face defeat again. So, I totally expect you to dominate Louis in the You Got Beat By A Girl wrestling match! 😉

    This video was good, my favorite part though was just watching you and Louis talk while you were wearing the Silver Seductress costume. Wow! Come talk to me in that outfit!

    Superb video! And a nice unexpected surprise for my weekend to get to see it! Even if I am totally devastated, DEVESTATED, by your loss Char!

    To be fair, though, you were set up for defeat and Louis should admit this is true! I wholeheartedly agree with the idea of a rematch and think it’s necessary in light of your 1 point loss! But you have to be fair about it next time. From the looks of this video, you only trained for a few minutes! Louis, give her a rematch but she must be allowed to play at least three more games against the system before she faces you! Give Char a fair fighting chance!

    Loved the video, though.

    I admit I completely expected Char to win this one after seeing her come out so strong in the first period against Louis! You almost had him Char!

    When you came back and tied it up, I knew you’d win! I was shocked that Louis hung on for the victory.

    You’ll get him next time, Char! What is your consequence for not winning hy 10 or more points Louis? Don’t let him off the hook Char!

    Oh no! Char, you could have won! Just one lousy point from a huge upset victory over him! You were so close!

    Louis, she deserves a rematch and you know it. Char will win the next time! Char, force him to give you a rematch! Withhold if you have to! 😉 I have to see you come back and win this game!

    I loved the video. I loved the costume, wish you wore it the whole time. I hate that you lost, Char. But you gave him a hell of a fight!!

    I know you will come back stronger than ever and beat him in a rematch. Remember you lost the first few paper football games, too! Now look at you!

    Louis, you better be ready. When Char returns for a rematch, she is coming for you with everything she’s got! She WILL be victorious in this game next time!

    Char, if it’s any condolence, you looked hot even though you lost! 😉

    Looking forward to chess next!

    I love the idea of doing a retro game series! Cool! What retro game is going to be next?

    LOUIS! YOU OWE CHAR A REMATCH! She scored against her own goalie! She would have won!!! Do over!

    Char, you’ll make him rematch you, right?

    First off, Char, any chance to see you in the Silver Seductress costume is a win for YOUR FANS! 😉 That costume is honestly mind blowing sexy and I can’t wait to see you rocking it again in the chess match. I know that’s coming this month, but when?

    Now Louis, this game was totally unfair! You can’t show Char how to play and immediately follow up with a match and expect her to be able to win! She should have been totally comfortable with the controls before playing you! She was still asking how to play in the opening minutes of your game against each other!

    To Char’s credit, she figured it all out fast and would have beaten you by one point herself if she hadn’t made it a tie score by scoring on herself!

    I want to see a rematch, too. She knows how to play now and will be ready for you. Give her a couple more games against the computer to refresh her skills and then film a rematch! My money is on Char! If she was behind the curve this badly and only lost by one point, imagine what will happen on your rematch!

    I know chess is next, but please tell me that you will hold a rematch after chess!
