  1. Yeah, I really like that game. It can be frustrating but the voices and graphics are terrific!

      My girlfriend got mad at me when I told her the words to part of the song Tubthumping were "pissing the night away" as she thought they were "dancing the night away".

  4. Cool; Keizer could probably use all the exposure it can get.
  5. Well, that was quick.  The Popeye's chicken sandwiches ran out again.

      Chicken sandwiches for the masses, not the classes.  🤣

  6. EXERION I think I first saw at an Aladdin's Castle in Vancouver, WA. I played it a bit and enjoyed it, but most of my tokens went to ELEVATOR ACTION. Exerion is definitely one of Jaleco's more memorable titles (their NES classic Bases Loaded is my favorite). ELEVATOR ACTION (1983 Taito) I was crazy for this game when it came out. I think I might have first seen this at Hydrotubes water slide arcade room, in Tigard OR, when it was brand new. I still really enjoy it. The jump attack is SUPER useful for enemies close to the elevator shaft as you near their floor, since they get very trigger-happy on the later levels.
  7. YouTube user Killgruz has lots of great Game Genie codes, especially for Super Mario Bros. https://www.youtube.com/user/killgruz Plenty of weird, funny, and wtf codes!
  8. Exerion is definitely cool for 1983. I enjoy the dynamic of choosing between rapid fire or double shot for specific enemies. I just wish that it didn't take forever for you to get to the bonus round.
  9. New one: ZARZON/SATAN OF SATURN (!), 1981 SNK/Taito Really awful fixed-screen shooter, known as ZARZON in the US and originally called SATAN OF SATURN in its native Japan. Neither Zarzon nor Satan Of Saturn are really any good. Take out waves of UFOs, then diagonally descending ships, then a comet, and then you fly to Saturn to destroy bug-like enemies and then 3 dragonflies. Sounds perhaps kind of cool but it really is poorly made and unmemorable. I saw ZARZON at a drive-in theater snack lobby, I believe, in Vancouver WA back in 1987 when I went to see CREEPSHOW 2 with my mom.
  10. CHARLIE NINJA TECMO KNIGHT SNOW BROS. all arcade
  11. It sucks when your team gets smoked and you pick up a cold the same day.

  12. I always liked the Coleco Gemini controller. A fairly slim joystick and a paddle on top with button on the side. Worked just great for me.
