  1. Why hasn't Bonzi Buddy released an official statement on their stance on COVID 19? What saftey measures are they going to take?

    1. thanatos


      Didn't see one on the X10.com pop-ups either.  Or anything from Angelfire.


  2. If 2020 was a console, it would be the Atari VCS!

      I would have said CD-I myself.


    3. CPUWIZ


      Wouldn't you have to set fire to it first?

    4. cedropoole


      SouljaGame Console because 2020 was a poser of a year

  3. 3 minutes into Wonder Woman 1984 and I spot an anachronism in the arcade.

      Be prepared for much more nonsense.

      If you like the first one, don't expect anything close out of this second one. Half decent movie but a terrible ending, IMO.

    4. Stephen


      But - Gal Gadot!

  4. What voltage do the Coleco & Intelly flashbacks take? I can't find the power supplies anywhere. 

    1. GoldLeader


      They're 5V 500mA  Center Positive

  5. I only now discovered the free retro games that came with Amazon Prime. NOICE.

      Twitch Prime, presumably Amazon will just get rid of the Twitch name one day. Its now called "Prime Gaming".


      It includes various B rated games, some of which might be ones you thought "oh, I wouldn't mind trying this sometime".


      I've been "saving" each game that comes out since they started doing it, and I'll be honest I don't think I've actually booted one of them up, but if you haven't got anything to play - it might be worth a shot.

    3. jgkspsx


      Wait, which?

  6. Somehow, some way I found an .EXE that actually runs Super Cassette Vision games. The libretro dlls in Retroarch boot up the system, but won't boot up the game.

  7. On the TV show "Eerie, Indiana" you can hear Atari 2600 asteroids, and a kid is playing Stargate arcade in the attract mode.

      I think I've seen at least three shows (cartoons mostly) where there are people playing Donkey Kong or Space Invaders but the sound is from 2600 Pac-Man :D

    2. GoldLeader


      I remember that show.

    3. S1500


      Also spotted; 2 Gemsticks worn on the ears. 

  8. Just as a reminder, everything in the universe will be discontinued, and then re-released with an HDMI port added to it.

      The mind reels at the possibilities.  Box of Kleenex? HDMI Port!  Hostess Fruit pie?  HDMI Port!  How 'bout an HDMI Port?  2 HDMI Ports!!!

      Closest thing to a Laserdisc player with an HDMI port I ever saw was a > $1000 Pioneer LD-S9, 2nd or 3rd best player in existence. It digitized everything internally it seems. I suppose if you were a super awesome uber-hacker you could tap into the digital stream and re-encode into HDMI. That said I know the comment was made in jest.

    4. save2600


      HDMI... with a million baby-step revisions afterwards. Gotta be the worst consumer electronics "standard" that way yet. 

  9. I'm watching The Great Space Coaster, and it's showing people smoking(and telling you not to smoke). Heh.

      Just remember, no Gnus is good Gnus!

      I couldn't wait for them to show the La Linea cartoons, with that little line man always getting mad when he falls into a pit. 

  10. I was watching American Horror Story and spotted a Tandy 1000HX

      Thats more traumatic than the first 15 minutes in Alien 1979...

  11. Funny. This old WiFi adapter won't work on Windows 10, yet the Raspberry Pi 1 picked it right up and is using it.

      I had the same issue when I upgraded (?) my desktop to Win 10.  The wifi stick isn't compatible.  A year later I upgraded to a new desktop with built in wifi and the one year old adapter I bought is no longer needed.  If you need one just pm me.

      There may be something in control panel that you might be able to change to get it working. My HP Spectre laptop was absolutely crawling along at around 1.5mbps at my daughter's place after she switched broadband provider. Everything else in the house seemed to work fine with the new router. Looking at the router's control panel, everything else was connected to it at 2.4Ghz while the laptop was at 5Ghz. So I tried forcing the laptop to default to the 2.4Ghz signal (by going into the Network Adapter settings in the control panel and disabling the standards that cause it to try to connect at 6Ghz) and now it accesses the internet as fast as anything else in the house.

      That doesn't sound funny to me at all!

  12. I'm looking forward to using this on RetoArch, as their resident 8-bit emulator doesn't work very well.
