http://kiblitzing.blogspot.com/2017/06/coming-to-scalper-near-you.html Yes, I'm kind of salty about the probable lack of Super NES Classic systems. Salt would have been handy for Jennifer Strange, who died from water intoxication because she couldn't just walk into a store and buy a damn Wii.

    I never understood peoples' fascination with the NES mini. You can purchase a real NES and have access to the system's entire library of games. Call me old-fashioned if you must, but that is my take on Nintendo's 'mini' console system(s).

I just discovered that there's a Super Breakout audio book. Somebody HAS to put that on SoundCloud or YouTube.

    I have the cassette, but not the book. Is it really just black and white line drawings? Is it a coloring book sorsomething?

    They are all just line drawings. It does not say anywhere on the packaging about coloring. I did color in mine when I had one.

Wow, Zima did NOT live up to my memories. Tastes like slightly sweet rubbing alcohol.

Good idea: Modding a joystick to make it work better. Bad idea: Charring your skin with a soldering iron in the process. http://kiblitzing.blogspot.com/2017/06/the-sizzle-reel.html

    It's a Hori stick for the original Playstation. And I'll keep the cotton gloves suggestion in mind.

    Just mentioning it because you said Sony designer.

    I assume you meant the Sony designs copied by Hori...

The power flickers from time to time, leaving me a little worried! C'mon, not during a heat wave!

https://twitter.com/ACR_Collection/status/875147975126896645 Apparently Keith Robinson of Intellivision Productions just passed away. I still remember playing his wacky Genesis game Normy's Beach Babe-a-Rama. His company's Q*Bert sequel for Super NES was also really good.

I just found a Nintendo Wii dumped into the free bin over at the local thrift store. And the award for the most disposable game console goes to...!

    I used to think that maybe I'll pick up a Wii when it sells below $50. Now it far below that amount but I couldn't be bothered unless I got one for free.

    I've started to think of it as a Super Super Nintendo, which makes me like it more. The disc software was throwing me off, but now it feels like a retro console.

    It's good for hacking. A little underpowered, but good for emulating 8-bit and some 16-bit systems. If this thing works, that will probably be what I do with it.

http://kiblitzing.blogspot.com/2017/06/back-words.html Oh Sony. So arrogant. So profoundly stupid. Maybe slagging your fans' introduction to the Playstation brand isn't such a good way to ensure their continued loyalty.
