  1. Why should he? It was not about that, it was about him being a condescending asshole.
  2. Awesome NES game FROM BELOW 😎 That's right, came across this and thought I would share. Not just in the classic 8-bit NES style but in fact actually available to play online in a browser based NES emulator or even better download the latest ROM file direct from the author to play in an emulator or even on actual NES compatible hardware using Flashcart / Everdrive etc. https://mhughson.itch.io/from-below A fun and impressive game! Check out this screen shot as well an excerpt of the description. Link to itchio . com for more info and ROM downloads. The Kraken cometh... From the deepest trenches of the ocean, the Kraken has come to lay waste to your city! The archers have slung every arrow. The burning tar has run dry. Every piece of military weaponry has been dispatch. And yet... the Kraken moves forward, climbing the towering walls of your seaside fortress. With no ammunition left, the city itself moves from a barricade, to a weapon! The stones of the walls are broken off, and hurdled down at hideous creature. And it just might be enough to slow it down till morning, when surely help will arrive... --- Hi! I am working on my first Homebrew NES game, FROM BELOW! It a falling block puzzle game featuring: Soft Drops Hard Drops Wall Kicks T-Spins Lock Delay 3 modes of play: Kraken Battle Mode The signature mode of FROM BELOW. Battle the Kraken by clear lines across the onslaught of attacking Kraken Tentacles. The Tentacles push more blocks onto the screen every few seconds, forcing to act quickly, and strategize on an every changing board. nes_tetris_july_03_gameplay_edit.gif.f612edbacd3915eafbfc0e0e5735b0f8.gif Classic Mode The classic block falling mechanics you know and love without any new gimicks. Modernize for 2020, with Hard Drops, Lock Delay, and more, making this (hopefully) the best feeling puzzle game on the NES! Turn Based Kraken Battle Mode Similar to "Kraken Battle Mode", but instead of the Kraken attacking every few seconds, it advances its tentacle every time you drop a piece. Make every move count, as this move favors slow, deliberate play! https://mhughson.itch.io/from-below
  3. 😎 not mine, but I enjoyed this video I watched earlier. Sorry if his vids have been posted before, I've not been following the thread.
  4. I remember those commercials like it was yesterday though I probably could not tell you what I had for dinner last Monday 😜🙄Outside of expansion modules, add-ons etc, also saying this as a happy and proud owner of an original 4 port 5200, as far as each console goes and it's native library of games, having to choose just one it is definitely ColecoVision all the way, it has always been my favorite console of it's era and while there are great Atari classics on the 5200 many are just improved versions of all the classic Atari hits they kept porting from 2600 to 8-bit etc, Centipede, Pac Man, Galaxian, Jungle Hunt etc, etc. While ColecoVision got some ports you still rarely see anywhere if at all like BERZERK. Now I fully admit my history was with 2600 then to Colecovision never owning a 5200 during it's heyday so there is a nostalgic connection to games on ColecoVision with Popeye, LadyBug, MouseTrap, Pepper II, Space Panic and more.
  5. Not really, the OP asked for peoples opinion about releasing a game about Corona virus, HE is giving his opinion on it AS WELL giving his opinion on how others should feel about it as if those against it need to see HIS way of thinking. NICE TRY THOUGH. Yes we can go round and round with this nonsense, my point was to let people give what the OP asked and not worry so much whether others agree or not, that would be the point of this thread. Rather not see the thread sink into comments back and forth about whether others should be offended about it or not.
  6. While I mostly agree with you please keep in mind the OP literally asked people of this community for their opinion and people are giving it as the see fit.
  7. Meh, like thousands of Youtubers they are just talking crap about an unreleased console, that kind of thing is endless. Personally I cannot stand Pat and Ian and I think they are a joke but they are entitled to their opinion however wrong or misguided it is. Engaging them further just gives them what they crave, would be a waste of time, effort, resources that would be much better used toward getting the system out and simply proving them wrong. They would LOVE attention like that, far better to just ignore them and just let them and their sheep fans keep doing their own little circle jerk until they are proven wrong. Think about it, Tommy brings on a defamation case, Pat and Ian cry foul and set up a fund for all their sheep fans to cover the cost of their defense and it goes back and forth wasting time money resources on both sides all the while they revel in the attention when all one really needs to do is ignore them and prove them for the idiots they are, that would be a far better outcome.
  8. 😮😢Oh no! My condolences, so sorry to hear this Curt. Pugs are such wonderful companions, I am sure you brought each other great joy.
  9. 😀 Yep pretty pathetic that he hates Atariage so much but just cannot let it go or stop bringing it up to this day! 🙄😆 Hilarious Kieren throwing shade at others for lack of research and "facts" is the biggest joke of all.
  10. Maybe I will buy 50 Phoenix units and relabel them the ColecoVision WAFER Drive and resell them. 😛
  11. Yep, they want to get as many suckers and backers etc as they can before the sudden announce about how bad they feel about not ever being able to deliver to "BACKERS" and have to announce bankruptcy, this is why they keep stalling and stalling and claiming they have units and things are shipping to "devs" 😆When an actual backer receives a unit and displays it and puts it through it's paces for all the world to see I will gladly admit I was wrong but I don't see it happening.
  12. Happy Canada Day EH! To all my Canadian brothers and sisters ! 🍁🍻 #CanadaDay2020

  13. That TV is a beauty man! Being 53 and having had a TV most of my life that was a TUBE I totally get it. Oh don't get me wrong, I love the 43' SHARP 4k TV the brother in law bought us a couple years ago, I could never go back but for consoles that came out during the reign of CRT I totally have no issue playing on the displays they were designed for!
  14. Someone can chime in with better knowledge as I been out of this scene for too long but pretty sure you need to have your Xbox modded either by chip or soft-mod in order to be able to run unsigned code IE: Homebrew etc. I have two Xbox that have been modded by both methods but done by someone else, either way once done you will still nned to transfer the files / hombrew to your Xbox likely through FTP or possibly by burning a DVD-r etc. Lot's of fun. Anyway yeah, as with most consoles things need to be altered in order to dig into such things. Hope you find the answers you are seeking, I am sure there will be better answers coming up by others. A modded Xbox truly is wonderful though.
