I got the sarcasm just fine. There's a difference between whether it's being viewed as appropriate or not, especially in light of some of the vitriol that was going on in this thread. And I'm not the only one who was looking at it as such.

Can we move on please?

I wouldn't worry about it, I interpreted another way myself, which was basically "this one is tossed...".  Not everybody is into sarcasm, in fact most people have a hard time getting their grips on it.  Marty is one of them, IMHO.
On that note, did you watch New Jack City?  Or did you just pull that reference out of google's ass?

I know New Jack City verbatim! And yeah, that was basically the joke. I don't know Curt much less want to murder him. But it is an emotional thread so that probably wasn't the place for it.

#3170365 Jaguar CD Worth?

Posted by toptenmaterial on Wed Feb 4, 2015 11:56 AM

The thing about the Jag CD is that it is hard to find a working one in the wild. If you decide to buy, be sure to demo it first and try to get some kind of warrantee.

#3169240 Bad Trader Alert

Looks like you got a random bad apple. Don't let it dissuade you from conducting business here. You could PM Albert, our admin, but he may decline to intervene as I would imagine that he doesn't wish to get sucked into a lot of different disputes. As far as I know AA does ban notorious scammers so we'll see. Perhaps you could contact whoever the moderator is for Marketplace forums, I forget who it is at the moment.

Hey where can I buy one of these?

#3134801 Next Gen consoles, which one's the best?

Posted by toptenmaterial on Tue Dec 16, 2014 7:38 PM

Wii U Oh, Ok. Comeon, outside of the initial hype, did anybody like the wii? I liked a total of two games on there, both mario titles, the sports titles were an OK diversion until real games came out, but me and my friends lost interest in those too. The only real saving grace was BC with the cube, but hey, I already have a cube, and the ONE most used feature on there, isn't supported on the wii (gameboy player) The Wii U is just an extension of that I'd like to get Mario and Luigi games, but I cna't help but think that I'd get the system, play it a very short time, be underwelmed by the touch pad thing, annoyed by most of the games yet again not supporting a perfectly good real controller, and the thing just sitting in the closet no more than two months in of owning one (just like the wii) It's to bad, Nintendo has the games I like, but the console actively prevents good third party games from being ported to it. Maybe there's some saving grace, but honestly, I didn't like the gamecube, felt burned by the wii, and honestly, this will just probably be more of the same.

I couldn't disagree with you more concerning the Wii. For me it was the defining console of that generation with awesome games like Galaxy 1 & 2, Epic Yarn, DK and NSMW. I have never enjoyed a console more. And it's a killer emu machine too.

#3120350 Does anyone know about GBA clones?

Posted by toptenmaterial on Mon Nov 24, 2014 3:42 PM

For some GBA games (like the Classic NES Castlevania) I much prefer the button layout of the SP to the DS.

#3119296 If you were Nintendo, what would you do?

Locking downloads to one specific system at a time is killing them. I don't know why they don't abandon this archaic policy.

#3118093 If Atari made a new console, what would it be called?

Posted by toptenmaterial on Fri Nov 21, 2014 1:19 AM

A "new" Atari could be introduced in the form of a $99 tablet. It would be manufactured solely by convict labor and marketed as the Slick Willy.

Edit: I forgot to mention that it will be advertised primarily in the Old Farmer's Almanac, Reader's Digest and on Howard.

Have a unified online user ID system. For crying out loud, it's almost 2006 already! :D

#3102045 My quest to beat Castlevania

Posted by toptenmaterial on Wed Oct 29, 2014 7:38 PM

Hi everyone! About 3 years and a half ago, I was going through a separation and living at a motel in Maine. Wasn't exactly loving life. To gain some purpose, I attempted to beat Castlevania, with the help of some folks from this thread. I was not successful, but it was fun as hell and really helped pull me out of a slump. I will be trying to beat it again now. I think I'll start by reviewing the posts and videos that other AAers have made and posted on this thread. In 2011, I was playing the game on a GBA SP (with the Classic NES Series cart); this time around, I will be using a hacked PSP-3000, without cheats. Wish me luck!

#3101227 What activities haven't been simulated on the Atari 2600?

Posted by toptenmaterial on Tue Oct 28, 2014 4:25 PM

Turn based strategy (Advance Wars style). Has anyone done that? It could be done.

#3100827 What activities haven't been simulated on the Atari 2600?

Posted by toptenmaterial on Tue Oct 28, 2014 3:13 AM

Circumcision. Actually a very good premise for an Atari game. In order for 2600 games to be successful, they usually have to revolve around a simple gimmick done well. Dragster, for example. My circumcision game will be called Snip the Tip.

#3100797 What's your gaming/ game console history?

Posted by toptenmaterial on Tue Oct 28, 2014 1:20 AM

My first exposer to video games was through my father's IBM PC in the early 80s, and more advanced PCs as the years rolled on. My sister and I saved up all our allowance money and bought an NES, and got hooked on Super Mario Bros, and I've been a die hard Nintendo fan ever since. I got back into gaming as an adult with the advent of the Nintendo DS, which I thought was the coolest thing on earth, and later the Wii, which blew my mind after demo-ing it at Best Buy.
