#4259695 Midwest Gaming Classic 2019

Posted by thanatos on Wed Apr 17, 2019 8:06 AM

Another great year.  Talked to Dauber, frankodragon, and Inky at their booth about Shatner and tacos.


Also ran into Crazy Climber.  We managed to not cross paths the last 4 years or so even though we both were always there.  He said he'll come back to the forums eventually.

Just put the .ISOs somewhere.  :D

If you like Star Trek, I hope you've seen Star Trek Legacy on Vimeo. It's awesome. Old made new again. Holistic ecosystem, no raw edges. ;)



That was great!  I love the Tron Legacy soundtrack.  And the movie was pretty much covered in 20 minutes!

I think even if I had Bezos money I'd have problems paying $100k for an NES cart.

I much prefer this classic book which reached early Amazon fame.

New sequel released!  Don't worry, Tacos do make an appearance.

Getting really excited about this. Unless I missed something, I've got the other carts SainT has done, and love them. Especially since I don't have a working CD drive, this is going to be pretty awesome. Love adding to my flash cart collection! This one is likely gonna be my favorite for a while. I have a few (yes I did my own custom case for my Master System ED lol)...




Wow.  And I thought I had a lot of them!  I'm just shy of 10 I think.

#4214023 Your first video game played ? owned ?

Posted by thanatos on Tue Feb 5, 2019 11:02 PM

The very first?  I couldn't even figure out which one it was officially. 

But I remember playing Space Zap with an aunt at an arcade/pizza place when I was around 5.  My job was to keep hitting the fire button and she would push the directions.  Worked pretty well!  Also a memory of that long ago where we played the Fire Truck arcade together at a bowling alley.


I think it was probably 2nd grade when dad brought a 2600 home.  Besides the included Combat, he bought Slot Racers.  (I didn't like it too much though)

#4212853 PS5 May Be Fully Backwards Compatible

Posted by thanatos on Mon Feb 4, 2019 11:51 AM

Other rumors have said that PS5 will be streaming-only, no physical media. :lolblue:


All I know is that I'm probably going to sit out this next round of consoles. I say that every generation, but this time I mean it -- my time played vs. money spent ratio is truly ridiculous. 


I should have sat out PS4.  Got one at launch, it probably hasn't even been turned on for more than 24 hours total.

Holy crap.  Really missed a money-making opportunity here.

Wife and I were wanting to go to this finally this year, but the airline ticket prices are making this a no go for this year. Crazy how much more expensive it is per person to fly North than it is to Portland.


Check out flights to Chicago.  Renting a car from there might even be cheaper, even though it's 90 miles away.  Or there is the option of Amtrak from Chicago to Milwaukee.

Flights to Milwaukee can be stupidly priced depending on where you come from.

Quick need of clarification on the cd support thing. I had asked you about it and you had said it would be coming later. But in this post you are not promising it yet.  Now I am not going to say that an sd cart for the jag without cd support is not great work and great for some people, it just would not fit my needs right now.  I would probably not want it without cd support. 

I have been planning to try and jump right in and get one of the first ones, but with you now saying this, should someone that feels no cd support would be a deal breaker (at least at this point) not be ordering one until you say otherwise on the cd thing?




Less wanters mean a shorter waiting list for those of us that will want one.

Bit of a reach, but anyone ever play Ribbit King?  I had to get it after seeing it covered on X-Play way back in the day.  It was just too weird and silly to not pass up.
