  1. Jimmy snuka is dead

    1. DuggerVideoGames


      He was a murderer, anyway.

  2. "Heavy-Sixer" is slang for the first production run of Atari 2600's (6 switches on the front and heavy internal RF shielding).

    1. zetastrike


      huh, I always thought it was a type of engine.

    2. Gorfy


      I thought it was a pack of high ABV beer

      So they already make sex robots?

    2. jd_1138


      Hook a Flesh Light up to a DeWalt 18V hammer-drill. No sex robot needed.

  4. Atari sued Magnavox over their Pac-Man clone, K.C. Munchkin.

    1. MrMaddog


      And Atari (SA) still sends C&D letters to this very day...

    2. retrorandy


      I was just playing K.C. Munchkin via emulation on my old Wii. Much more fun than the 2600 Pacman. It's probably one of the best games on the Odyssey II. I will say the Odyssey seemed woefully underpowered. My friend bought on instead of the VCS because of the built in keyboard and just to mix it up a little.

      Then a million third party maze games sprang up overnight on Atari, mostly by 3rd parties... :lolblue:

  5. was bored out of my skull lastweek. Didn't do anything. I only thought of it now. I should've played Pokemon Go!!! I probably would've got all those little bastards!

  7. bought tixs to see Jake "the snake" roberts comedy tour. Wonder if I'll get the DDT? :o

    1. Stephen


      Jake was and is awesome! I hope he holds it together finally!

    2. Shawn


      He's not exactly a great guy. Saw him at an autograph session a few months ago and he was about as personable as a can of Spam.

  8. updated my profile. Didn't know you can add a background pic.

  9. What's on your mind??

      Wilford Brimley diarrhea.

      Some guy called Pajeet saying "M. NIGHT SHAMALAMADINGDONG!"

    3. GoldLeader


      Strangely I was just ruminating on the fact that problems in the Free World (Not counting Dictatorships, Communist countries or Theocracies and Oligarchies) often stem from 2 things: They start with "M" and rhyme with Bunny and Carriage.

  10. bought a modded original xbox before xmas, with all the arcades games on it.
  11. MenAvision released only one game for the 2600 - Air Raid, one of the rarest games for that system.

    1. Bryan


      And it still stands as one of the world's finest examples of programming.

    2. Prosystemsearch


      9 or 10 on the rarity scale?

    3. BassGuitari


      ^10. Which means Video Life should be an 11.

  12. all the wrong people are dying.

    1. Tickled_Pink


      That's only because of all the spare parts she uses.

      Bad things should happen to douchebag celebrities like Kardashian, Bieber and Hilton.

  15. I invented the "?"

    1. atari2600land


      What about the interrobang

    2. Atarian7


      I coined the phrase "Elite Eight" for college basketball.

  16. bought a modded xbox with all the old arcades games, I never got to play when I was a kid!

    1. AtariBrian


      Do you have Solar Warrior , also called Xain'd Sleena ?

    2. Corby


      @Ataribrian yes Xain"d sleena

    3. Keatah


      @corby: That's gotta be a real blast! I had the same experience spread over many years while following the development of emulation on x86 PC's. Each newly emulated game was like magic.

  17. So what do you do for a living? Dammit Man I'm a "welder" not a brick layer!

    1. Skippy B. Coyote

      Skippy B. Coyote

      I get paid to feel crappy. In other words, I'm on permanent disability.

    2. GoldLeader


      Damnit Jin, I'm a doctor not a pool man!

    3. DZ-Jay


      My typical answer is: "I work in computers..." Otherwise, I'd have to explain what Data is and what a Data Architect does.

  19. The Atari 5200 was one of the first consoles to feature a "Pause" button.

    1. Bryan


      ...and it should have come with a message to 'press it while you can!'

  20. Space Invaders for the 2600 was the first ever 'killer-app' videogame.

    1. GoldLeader


      The other Arcade games, like Combat and Outlaw, etc. all felt obscure, even then...

    2. S1500


      I like the fact it has a ton of game variants.

    3. Corby


      I like killing
