  1. I've finally come to terms with my liking the 'murder mystery' theme/genre in video games above all others.

      It's a capcom-made comedic phoenix wright clone on ps2/psp/wii.  Wii version tends to crash

      As a fan of Murder Mysteries/Locked box stories, I approve.

       But why did they kill the Bird?  She was about to sing.   Then why kill the Pig?  He was about to squeal.

      Yea, except i'm not that handy either....

  3. Remember when "pre-order" meant 'put $5 down to save your place in line' vs 'take the day off to refresh a website and pay 100%'?

      @Reaperman Awesome to know Reaper. Hope it gives you many years of enjoyment. :)

  5. In Danganronpa, I have trouble remembering the names of so many children-but that's a problem that fixes itself 💀

  6. Nintendo's losing me as a whale. I've 'switched' from 'rebuy 15 years of Steam games on switch to make them portable' to 'buy more old low-spec steam games for the steamdeck'

      nope, don't have one yet, but its already taken away my desire for 'switch hoarding/rebuying.' Looks like there are currently great sales on valkyria 4, and this war of mine on eShop. But nope! I'll be able to play those handheld anyway by this time next year. I was bad enough off that I even double-bought the freaking garfield kart racing game. eShop is a technical trainwreck that made it hard to spend money--and now I'm not even tempted to put up with it.

      I love Garfield kart, haha!  Uploaded the Xbox One "MK Style" controller config to Steam myself.

      I totally get where you're coming from.  :)  Right now, I think 90% of the games I have installed on my Switch Lite are retro games.

       

      That Steam Deck is darned tempting!

  7. On ebay, I bought a c64 Koronis Rift for the manual, because the A8 version is more expensive. 'happily surprised it was a flippy disk with the 'more expensive' a8 version on the other side.

      That game and the Eidolon was amazing looking for the time. 

  8. If the tabletop RPG "Rule of Cool" were a video game, it'd be Cruis'n Blast.

    1. Flojomojo

      Flojomojo

      Yes! It not only breaks the lws of physics, it is completely in denial that they ever existed! It’s SO over the top and a lot of silly fun. 

  9. Today I stopped to help a wet&hurt cat that got hit by a car(?). While waiting, another wet cat showed up. I get the feeling I now own 3 cats, and/or I just kidnapped 2 outdoor cats.

      A skinny kitten once followed me home when I was at the store. We gave it some food, and it was really hungry. More kittens were spotted in the same area around the same time. I guess someone didn´t want their kittens anymore, and just threw them out.

       

      We didn´t want another cat, so we gave to some neighbours. The new owners reported that it would steal (human) food from their hands while they were eating. They gave it plenty of cat food, but I guess having been starving had made it crazy about food.

       

      The kitten/cat just disappeared one day.

       

      These neighbours had another cat (afterwards?) which woke them up at night so they could stir his/her cat food. :)

  10. Come on Cruis'n Blast.  It's 9/14--when can I play? Maybe noon and midnight got mixed up for launch time

  11. Ida day 6--power's back on here. 👍Learned to cold brew coffee. Cleaned streets, courtyard and pool.

      Yeah Best of luck Reaperman,  Looked like quite a disaster...I hope all are well and safe.

      Minimal damage to building, trim and siding, lost a single piece of each. last years storm got our roof, so it was sturdy this time. Trees got it bad, though. No flooding, that won't really happen where I'm at.

    4. SlidellMan

      SlidellMan

      I'm glad that you made it, and I only got one downed tree in my driveway. Luckily, it didn't hit my Airstream or my Dart.

  12. I managed to get a couple hurricane vids up, but power is flickering badly.  About to go dark for a couple weeks, possibly.

      I'm still around in Slidell, and all we have gotten is heavy rain and strong wind.

  13. Storm's coming. Waiting to see if I spend it at work or home.

    1. SlidellMan

      SlidellMan

      Yeah, and the Camellia City Farmer's Market is cancelled due to it.

      I think the only reason mass evacuation isn't happening is that it's too late for that. Which leaves the wife and I in a weird spot of not knowing if it's still bad enough for us to get called into work. Actually I'd probably rather be at work for the lock-in. I'd have power, A/C, and video games then. (probably have to wear a covid mask even while sleeping, though...)

  14. A new Star Citizen alpha came out, but instead it's motivated me to go back to Freelancer, or maybe even Space Rogue.

    1. Tickled_Pink

      Tickled_Pink

      ALPHA???? 😲

    2. Reaperman

      Reaperman

      yep, alpha--coming up on the 9th anniversary too. They don't have the flight model nailed down, don't have travel between systems, no tractor beams, and no interdiction mechanics outside of 'hope they don't run.' But they are on at least revision 3 of their ship insurance mechanics. fun.

  15. Nobody pick Oddjob. That's cheating.

      Can't pick Oddjob or Jaws. That was the house rules in my group. Oddjob has too small of a hitbox and Jaws is damn near bulletproof.

    3. Frozone212

      I never was able to find enough people for MP. I do remember ending up in a 3 way mexican standoff though...and I had the golden gun, though the other two had bazooka's so...

  16. This morning I finally printed myself a Koronis Rift manual after 35 years of trying to play without...

    1. Reaperman

      Reaperman

      oh good, there are maps too. That saves trouble finding all the different race sensors. Cute easter eggs. This game goes way deeper than I thought.

      Oh, Man-I can't relate to the game, don't know it, but it does sound super complicated.

      Something I learned from high-scoring, and particularly on the very basic Atari 2600-

      ALWAYS READ THE MANUAL!

      :D

      I can't tell you how many times I have struggled with something and finally read the manual and it tells me exactly what I was "missing" to do better.

      Have Fun!

  17. Why do so many modern arcade sticks have their L/R buttons swapped? 'R' is left of 'L.'

    1. Razzie.P

      Razzie.P

      I think it’s Street Fighter’s fault – The sticks are made to go along with 6 button fighting games, like Street Fighter, and default controls often seem to use R1 and R2 (on the game pad) as punch and kick, with L1 and L2 designated to some other function.  So to keep all 3 punches and all 3 kicks together (as in the arcade) while minimizing button remapping, they switched ‘em around a bit

  18. Anybody know what causes the loud audio glitches on WC: Privateer? I see them on real hardware and MiSTer, with downloaded copies and retail.

    1. Reaperman

      Reaperman

      I tried multiple real soundcards (kept buying them to fix it), and various SB spec combos, but I figured it was just a ghost in my MSDOS computer before also saw it on MiSTer. DOSBOX does not seem to have the issue.

  19. This is 3-on-3 street basketball; if you wanna join in you gotta answer the call. Tall, short, fat, it don't make no difference at all. When the whistle blows it's a free-for-all.

  20. I thought I was an annoying wet-blanket about input lag, but somewhere in here, the world got *hardcore.* Now there are commercial usb products with ~1ms response. 🤯

  21. Trying my MCC-TV FPGA system for the first time today. It's a little rough.

  22. I wasn't going to, but I went for the steam deck anyway. It's a great deal for what it is, but I'm just not the handheld gamer I used to be.

    1. thanatos

      thanatos

      That's why I'm hesitant!  "Oh, that looks amazing."  "Wait, it will probably get played for about 15 minutes, or max a day of showing it off to friends, then go on the shelf forever."

       

  23. F-Zero X Climax hack is as fantastic as it is difficult. I placed 21st overall in Bronze Beginner GP with my highest finish being 7th, and two last place finishes.

      Despite the F-Zero anime being on my Bottom Five 4Kids Dubs, that ROMhack is worth checking out.

  24. Has youtube forgotten how to pronounce 'subsequent' and 'divisive'? It was bad enough when they started saying 'addicting' a decade or so ago.

      My guess is that they learned the word by reading it vs hearing it, which speaks more to the vocabulary level of their media or schooling. It's actually possible kids no longer get sent home with lists of vocabulary words.

      One of my favorites is 'Mega Shark vs Mecha Shark'--they must have hired military advisors just to get as much as they could hilariously wrong about the uniforms. (SWO pins as collar devices, etc)  'Avalanche Sharks' and 'Ghost Sharks' were also SyFy shark winners.

    3. Reaperman

      Every once in a while we get a winner, though. 'Air Doll' is was brilliant movie about how humanity will treat artificial intelligence, and why AI will only ever see the worst in us. It's done without robots. We though it was going to be a light comedy where the punchlines were all 'huh huh, blow-up doll'--nope, sad and thought-provoking. Also the brilliant camera work in 'Cool as Ice' shocked us so much we stopped the movie to look up who did it. "wait, this bad movie is...beautiful"

    4. GoldLeader

      GoldLeader

      Oh I saw Cool as Ice too haha...It was cornier than a maze in Iowa, but all in good fun.  I thought it was entertaining.  I watched it for work (Processing a Video On Demand file) and my boss walked in as Vanilla Ice is arguing with the girl's dad, and we both noticed he had the word SEX in big letters on his jacket or something, ...We laughed so hard,   Why did the father not want this guy to date his daughter?    🤣

       

      For SyFy movies, after seeing the movie Lavalantula,  we set aside a night especially to see 2 LAVA 2 LANTULA!   Haaa!   The crossover scene with Ian Ziering from Sharknado was hilarious!  He runs past saying he's too busy fighting Sharks to join in the fight against the Spiders!  LOL!
