  1. Wish I had thought of this for my niece and nephew. https://twitter.com/Nag_FR/status/1076512103815614464

      That's a great idea! I've got a pile of those old things at work.

      I feel for that kid. I wanted a Switch for Christmas too and didn't get one either. >_<

      I didn't want a Nintendo Switch, I wanted a toggle switch.

  2. Doom is 25 years old today and that makes me feel old too.

      I remember when Doom came out and it feels a lot longer. So, I feel not as old as I did a while ago. ^_^

      I'm old, you're old, we're all old here.

  3. We arrived at the Grand Canyon tonight, went to the main lodge building to get dinner, and I run into Mike Kennedy standing in line. That's some crazy random chance stuff!

      Seriously? That's random as hell. I don't even run into people I actually know, even in my own town!

       

      Hope you're having a fun trip!

  6. Did someone really make alt accounts over 2 years ago? As if they were planning something??

    1. jaybird3rd

      jaybird3rd

      It doesn't surprise me. Some peoples' lives are such miserable failures that they have to create drama, and deliberately stir up trouble, just to give themselves a sense of purpose. I can't think of any other reason they would put so much effort into behaving like a jerk on a classic gaming and computing forum.

      (... or "forem," as a certain one of those multiple-personality losers likes to call it.)

      I've made alt accounts but said it was me.. dunno if that's how it's done. :P

  8. Netflix, why must you keep messing with the interface? I liked scrolling either way, now you put a stupid menu bar when you go left.

    1. digdugnate

      digdugnate

      it drives me crazy! it seems like netflix changes their UI every other week when all I want to see is what is on my flippin' list lol

    2. wongojack

      wongojack

      I like the bar. I think it is an improvement and allows me to find stuff easier. If you click on "my stuff" in the bar it shows you a full page of your items instead of just putting them on one row.

      I hear that AtariBox is trying to make it more mom-friendly.

  9. I HATE "Holy grails". You can't have 15 holy grails. Plus it's a video game.

      If you drink out of a holy grail cartridge, do you get infinite lives?

    3. GoldLeader

      GoldLeader

      I actually like the concept of a "Holy Grail" for your own personal collection...But hate the way eBayers and resellers use the term...Kinda cheapens its meaning...

    4. GoldLeader

      GoldLeader

      P.S. Finding the actual Holy Grail would be easier than beating Battletoads!

  10. Finally cancelled my Netflix DVD subscription, after having the same disc for over a year...

    1. BydoEmpire

      We get TONS of DVDs from the library, too. Then again, I also still play Atari games ;)

      I figured I'd sign up for Netflix (Probably streaming) if I ever get caught up on all my DVDs I own and my DVR which is 66% full!!

  11. Someone mentioned Horizon as Moon Patrol II. Any game that starts at the beginning of a stage after death is evil.

    1. Flojomojo

      Flojomojo

      Run to the left instead! :-D

    2. retrorandy

      retrorandy

      Strangely enough I played this game once way back at an arcade in Berkeley in 1985 or so. I was blown away and I swear my hazy memory remembers the marquee at that time actually said, "Moon Patrol II" or something like that. So glad for the internets and to be able to play it again all these years later. It is an awesome game, but yeah thank goodness for modern day save states when playing it via an emulator.

  12. Boo. Cosmos was removed from Netflix. One of my standard going to sleep shows.

    1. Jess Ragan

      Wait, they dropped the film as you were watching it? Cold.

      There's a site that tells us what's new and what's leaving Netflix ... not sure if this is my favorite (there are many) but it will do: https://www.whats-on-netflix.com/leaving-soon/

      It actually had a pop-up when starting an episode for the past month or so saying it was available until Aug 7th.

  13. Browsing the Steam sale queue I added a couple $.99 games. Then later added money to my account, which cleared my cart. Now those devs miss out on a sale cuz I don't remember which games they were.

    1. xucaen

      xucaen

      I bought two games from Steam over the years: both times they took my money, both times they would not let me stream or download the game, nor play it in any way. Both times I had to request my money back. Both times they took a couple of weeks to refund the money. I'll never attempt to buy from them again.

    2. BiffsGamingVideos

      BiffsGamingVideos

      of geez. they lost a grand total of 45 cents after the rake.....not even worth selling it. ….Id recommend Bit Evolution on sale for $3.35 until tomorrow.

    3. thanatos

      Well, my lement was also that I may never get to play a game I thought looked interesting since it was a small fish in such a big pond.

  15. What should I bring to have Weird Al autograph? A UHF DVD case, the video collection DVD case, or the In 3D album cover (vinyl LP)

    1. NE146
    2. GoldLeader

      GoldLeader

      I agree they're all good choices...I, personally think a signed copy of UHF would be cool...

    3. Nathan Strum

      Nathan Strum

      If those are the only three, I'd bring UHF. Otherwise, I'd either bring Peter and the Wolf/Carnival of the Animals pt.II, or The Compleat Al.

    3. Flojomojo

      Flojomojo

      I'm thinking about going to see it again now that I know what it is. I mildly enjoyed it the first time but wished it had more sizzle. Maybe on the second viewing I can dig it more.

  17. Solo guy sitting at the bar was watching people play games live on his phone. World of Tanks and Dark Souls. Seemed weird.

      Twitch.tv is a very foreign land to me.

    2. GoldLeader

      GoldLeader

      Ever see that movie 24 Hour Party People? Eventually DJs (as in people playing records) were "The Band"...Seems he's found a way to be involved in video games without the effort of actually playing...Not for me. He's missing the point entirely.

  18. CBS fall lineup will include Macguyver, Hawaii Five-O, Murphy Brown, and Magnum PI. WHAT YEAR IS THIS?

    1. thanatos

      Misfits of Science and It's Your Move.

      Yes, I get that it's the Onion, and yes, it's a joke. But that doesn't change the fact that Space Invaders didn't have a high score table with initials.

  19. Smart TV = Intelligent Television?

    1. GoldLeader

      Maybe if you were to abbreviate Intelligent Television somewhat or maybe just take half of each word ... Hmmmm

      No switch version either... :sad:

      It looks cool and all, but it also kinda looks like your roommate is on Molly trying to jerk off to a rave video while you're trying to play Tempest.

  21. And Tron is no more. Farewell my love.

      I wasn't even actively looking to sell. Stumbled on a WTB post on Craigslist!

    2. Flojomojo

      PERFECT

      I totally get where you were coming from with "dump this thing before it breaks, because I can't fix it"

    3. thanatos

      thanatos

      Yup. Main reason I hung on so long is you just can't play that one properly with emulators.

  22. May be selling my Tron machine tomorrow. Sad, but it's probably time.
