Got PS1 working on my RetroPie and playing Wizardry Llygamyn Saga again. Going to beat it this time, I promise.

    Its still been a shorter time than plea deals normally take. I think the difference is that the others' offenses were supposedly small by comparison. Although, all blocked a more deserving student candidate.

Nobody really figured out a puzzle game like Tetris that works well in single player, did they?

    Does Breakout count? I'm biased.

    Cap'n Break'n: I'm speaking more generally of "objects fall towards the bottom of the screen and must be removed via grouping and pattern matching" type games.

    Although I guess the definition could be twisted to fit Space Invaders.

I need to finally break down and get gold refurbed 5200 controllers. Tired of my 5200 sitting in a box being frustrating.

    The only reason I'm even considering it is I was given about 30 5200 games at the same time. I'd much rather have an Atari 8-Bit.

I'm sure there's an excellent reason why replacement crisper drawers for refrigerators are so expensive.

    same goes for parts for any of your other appliances.

    They really don't want you repairing your appliance. They want you to buy a new one.

    ^-- yup. That said, I was very pleased that I was able to order the exact bracket I needed for my maytag dishwasher and fix it myself in 10 minutes. They actually had the part, it wasn't ridiculous, and it all worked. +1 to Maytag, I've had good luck compared to other appliance brands. YMMV.

    Okay - other than the times it is not overrated, continuity is overrated. Star Trek. I'm talking about Star Trek.

Family's asleep. Time to pull out the headphones, XMPlay, my MOD collection and pretend it's 1993 again.

    Awesome! I still have my MOD collection, but I converted most of them to MP3s in the early 2000s. :) Enjoy!!!!

    Conversion, schmonversion; most of the time the originals take up less space anyways, and all my Android phone needs is Droidsound-E. Look it up! >;)

So that Tazo chai latte mix you can grab for just under three dollars at Walmart isn’t bad at all.

Looks like Sega Ages Outrun has released on Switch. Looking forward to trying it tonight or tomorrow.

    I keep hearing a lot of praise about the Sega Ages stuff but never really able to determine what makes them so great. Guess I'll have to fork over a few $$$ to try this and Phantasy Star

    The praise is because they're very tastefully enhanced. Thunderforce IV has an option to disable slowdown (or at least slowdown the developers didn't design around), a "kid's mode" that makes it easier, sound tweaks (keep music from dropping out when audio samples play), etc. Phantasy Star has an automap added for dungeons among others. And all the extra features are optional and can be turned off.

    The SEGA AGES version is the only way I'll ever put up with this game and complete it (as I have always wanted to).

    Good explainer of the differences here:

    @deepthaw "tastefully enhanced" is a nice way to say it.
