  1. I can't seem to get any Odyssey 2 emulator to work.  Is there a good one for those with little patience?

    1. littaum


      No luck with O2EM?

    2. retrorussell


      @littaum Nope.  If you have experience with that one, I may need a tutorial of some sort.  If I get an emulator I prefer to just be able to click on the exe and get started easy peasy.  It's a bit too antiquated for my liking; If you are familiar with it and can give me some pointers I would sure appreciate it!

  2. Sexy Parodius Fantastic Journey/Gokujou Parodius Parodius Da! All arcade
  3. Not a good showing by the Bills, but at least they weren't the Packers..

      I watched little bits of the Packers game, it was brutal.  Only one game in, but not the way we want to begin after a tumultuous off-season.

      As a Green Bay fan, yes, ouch.


  4. I can't get used to Door Dash/Ubereats.  My renter orders it all the time and I get antsy over people/cars near my house..

      Guess it depends where you live. When ordering take-out we use it and never had any problems. Usually just people wanting some sort of work when times are tough. Also usually they're really nice as they want good reviews

      My wife uses those services too.  I prefer to go and pick it up 5 minutes down the street for free.  Hey wife, if you're reading this, "for free".

      As a delivery driver (for a Philly Cheese Steak restaurant) I do see an upside.  We deliver for $2!  Now some people don't tip (*&#*^#$!) but some people tip $10 because they are getting used to those Doordash prices,  which sure helps balance out the cheapskates (heh)...Now if I could just get the Friggin price of gas to go back down...

  5. I'll throw out some pics/memories of laserdiscs to mull over: SPACE ACE (1984, Don Bluth/Cinematronics) FIREFOX (1984 Atari) BADLANDS (1984 Konami) And yeah, STAR RIDER (1983, WMS Industries/Computer Creations/Williams) I think I've seen all those except for STAR RIDER. Space Ace I believe at a Chuck E. Cheese-- I would think of my sister Kimberly when I think of this game, though she looks NOTHING similar to Ace's gf. Firefox (based on a dull Clint Eastwood movie from 1982) I think I only saw at Hydrotubes water park. And Badlands I saw at a nickel arcade-- very silly anime game set in the Old West.
  6. Good idea! MACH 3, 1983 Mylstar I saw this once or twice. Once I think at a nickel arcade, another time maybe at Hydrotubes water park. Laserdisc title with a fighter aircraft bombing or shooting enemies in 2 different missions. I've never played it. Either upright or cockpit cabinets.
  7. New one this week: CLIFF HANGER, 1983 Stern Laserdisc game featuring scenes from the Hayao Miyazaki anime films THE CASTLE OF CAGLIOSTRO and THE MYSTERY OF MAMO, both starring the thief Lupin III and his allies. This is just a reaction game ala Dragon's Lair-- you may see something flash to indicate you need to move there, or you might see an arrow, or a "boop" sound may indicate you need to do something. I remember seeing this at my local 7-11, and I can't remember if I saw it anywhere else. This appeared in the film THE GOONIES!
  8. KARNOV HEAVY BARREL GUERILLA WAR all arcade (MAME emulator)
  9. New one: CHOPLIFTER (1985, Sega/Dan Gorlin) First saw this I think at a laundromat. Strong port of the computer classic by Dan Gorlin. Fly a chopper and rescue hostages while avoiding enemy fire.
  10. Great food at T-Mobile Park last time.  This time.. yuck, redeemed somewhat by Uncle Charley's Cheesesteaks.

      Did you get the grasshoppers? Are they still even doing that?

    2. retrorussell


      I think they still are, but no, I did not.
