  1. I feel so utterly disconnected from modern pop culture.  I don't really watch current TV, Movies, watch sports or listen to current music.  People are talking about the Mandalorian online and i'm just like "huh?"

      For me it's less disconnect and more dissatisfaction.  Unoriginal hijacking of loved properties and horrible takes.

      Your new Aquarius expansion cart that adds a raspberry pi 0 as a co-processor?

  4. So either Horace's creator finally came out of hiding or came back from the dead & decides to attack Octav1us's youtube channel with several copyright strikes. What the actual fuck? :mad:

      Welp.  Time to subscribe to Octav1us and avoid certain IP holding companies.

      The heck?  I wonder what connection he has to these Subvert Ltd people who issued the strike.

      I'd love to know who actually tried to kill the youtubers source of income.  They say it isn't Atari or Khrome Studios.

       

      I guess no retro game reviews can be safely made on YouTube if Horace can't be used in fair use.

  7. After a long day of building homebrew games, what should I have for dinner?

    1. Gemintronic

      Could start with a cheese and 64k board

      ..or you could just get something à la cart :)

  8. Have to move again: "Unfortunately we will not be able to renew your current lease agreement. Please consider this letter to be your formal sixty day written notice that your lease will not be renewed and that you will need to vacate the leased premises by the end of your current lease term of September 30, 2019."

      The heck?  I don't fully understand why landlords want new tenants.   They could fleece the existing ones with rent increases anyway.

  9. You ever notice how the vast majority of popular Sega Genesis games all had 8 stages? I wonder why that was.

    1. Gemintronic

      Gemintronic

      Dunno. Probably not technical reasons. Most games seem to be 2mb or 4mb. Not much bank switching. Plenty of room for more levels.

  10. Why are there no sports-related homebrews? An updated baseball game or basketball game would be great.

      Is extreme couch surfing a sport? That's the only thing I'm good at.

  11. Just a word of advice: never, NEVER just take their word for it when someone says to you "I love you so" or "You mean the world to me" or something along those lines. Especially if it's early in the relationship. You WILL be sorry if you believe that person... and it will leave you in a bad place.

    1. Gemintronic

      Gemintronic

      Yep. The "I love you" trap. Not the fairest play in the relationship game.

  13. I want to make homebrew games but I don't know how.

    1. Gemintronic

      Gemintronic

      Modern systems are easier to learn. That's why I suggested it as a first step. Older does not equal easier. Pick a system that you enjoy and seek out tools to make games for it. Which old school console do you enjoy playing games on?

      Do you have a passion for a particular console or just making games? People can suggest the easiest language to start with if you tell them the particular system you want. Otherwise start with Game Maker from YoYo Games on PC. Make a game and finish it. THEN see if you want to go classic console.

  15. The reason the sailor never came back to visit Brandy, even though she was a fine girl, is because he and his entire crew were eaten by the Kraken.

      There's a port on a servers gateway

      And it serves a hundred IPs a day

      Lonely gamers pass the time away

      And Fallout 76 wrecks their hopes

       

      And there's a girl logging in now

      And she should be saving: the latency growing

      They say "Brandy, fetch more atoms!"

      She serves them currency and whines

       

      Todd Howard says "Brandy, we've fined you" (such a fined girl)

      "What a good whale you would be" (such a fined...

  16. I wish M-Network's Sea Battle for the VCS was hacked to include a single-player mode. Same with SuperChallenge Baseball.

      Gemintronic

      Maybe a homage to NES Jaws instead. I liked the side view sections :)

  17. I would like to try to make retro-style games in C#(already have something going), but I'm having major writers block here.

    1. Gemintronic

      Gemintronic

      Maybe a trip to archive .org and playing some emulated classic games would spark some inspiration. Also, if you know C you can make actual Coleco, Genesis, 2600 and even SNES games (among others).

      I got one when they were in the $599 to $799 range. Until Apple makes the full leap to their custom ARM chips I can wait. Too pricey for the hardware given.

  19. Looking to play through an Ultima game - other than Akalabeth on iOS and 5-10 minutes each of Ultima III & IV, I've never played them. Reocmmendations? I'm inclined to start with an earlier one because it won't be as big a time commitment.

      Although arguably worse maybe the console versions would work better for tablet touch controls.

  20. Opinions: What is the most bullshit, unfair, frustrating NES games you have ever played?

    1. Gemintronic

      Athena and Milons Secret Castle have utterly unexplained conditions that make the game literally unwinnable.

  21. The best selling videogame console in June was the NES classic.

      A console that doesn't have a cart slot and can't play more games unless hacked wins.. sigh.

      Facebork is practically an Internet onto itself. Does seem lazy, though.

  23. Patiently waiting until 1:30PST to place my first order with Best Electronics.

    1. Gemintronic

      Gemintronic

      It's a thing on AtariAge where Best gets random impressions from customers. Some very positive. Some very bad. It can vary by transaction too.
