Jeez, is pinterest trying to monopolize pictures off the internet? So I can't copy and paste the URL?

    Freebase some Space Rocks, use a light gun to hold up the Sentinel at your local BurgerTime, then take the money down to Playaround to see some lovely ladies (or Gigolos) get in the Pole Position. Just don't order anything from their Pressure Cooker, or you might get Montezuma's Revenge.

    I bet! And no shitty lag or flat/ blocky graphics to spoil the experience either. ;-)

    Great video! I watched it this morning over breakfast and it got me interested in checking out and playing a few Atari 7800 games that I hadn't tried before. =)

So I built an Atari 7800 arcade stick, my first soldering project since high school. I was so happy when it worked the first time, I hurried back into the workship to drill a hole for the cord and be done...and I drilled the hole on the FRONT of the case.

    Oh, man! That's so stupid. I would never do something like that. I didn't do something like that just last weekend. Nope. Not me.

    Or stick an LED or toggle switch in that hole. Doesn't need to be hooked to anything, but might look as if it's supposed to be there. lol

What the heck happened to Best Electronics? I ordered an Atari Light Gun from them, it arrived broken. They let me return it but made me pay shipping, then sent me a new one that worked only slightly better and looks like it was assembled by trained monkeys. http://i.imgur.com/Ey1FLbn.jpg Now they want to charge me $26.25 to return and exchange the replacement, when it's their fault it's messed up. I think it's time to file a claim with my credit card company.

    Their website looks like it was made in 1997 and never improved.

    Bought a light gun from him a few months ago and the trigger would get stuck. Loosened a screw nearby and that took care of it. Those BEST guns are more accurate than Atari's but they're built like shit

    No kidding save2600. The build quality isn't great by any means, but I was able to take the light gun apart, realign the shell halves to be fairly even, and adjust the lens so that it's only shooting 1/4" or so to the right now. I'm still not too happy with the build quality though, so I think tomorrow I'm going to list the fixed up Best Light Gun for sale for $20 and try my luck with an official Atari XG-1 light gun the next time I order from Video61.

    I have no room right now, so I never built a collection in the first place. Maybe some day though.

    Or they need to pay bills. Games gathering dust don't pay mortgages or put food on the table.

    Ah yes, that's it! I saw that recently when playing Space Invaders Extreme 2 on the DS. It's quite interesting that they kept that there. Thanks for the pic!
