  1. Oh thank God.. I was getting pissed at Fusion (my SMS emu) because I thought it wasn't recognizing any custom control inputs.. but there were TWO sets of inputs, one for Genesis controls and one for SMS controls and I kept changing the Genesis ones (obviously with no effect on the SMS games).  Whew!

  2. F***ing Walgreens.. you follow the instructions to stop them sending you emails and then you get twice as many.

      Oh, and the register receipts from CVS are incredible!  I bought a box of Band-Aids and got a receipt about five feet long!

      The same with junk mail I get from Spectrum.  I told them not send any more, and they back off for a month, but then start doing it again.  Their brains must be made of Teflon.

      Spectrum will never quit sending me junk mail no matter how nicely I ask.

  3. Wow, would have sworn Cleveland would blow another big lead as per usual.

      I mean . . . they won by 11 with a last min TD even getting it that close.  It was a playoff game for Pete's sake.  Usually the players keep playing in those.

  4. Just looking at the US releases for the Sega Master System I could understand being underwhelmed.  But many Brazil/Euro releases were great on the system!

      The guys at SMS Power have some decent homebrew releases.

      Lost Raider and Sunny the Mermaid are worth looking into.

      I also forgot to add that Nintendo's stranglehold on game developers also hurt the SMS. I have played some on the SMS and it seemed like a solid enough system.

      I also recommend Silver Valley as well.

  6. It sucks to not only embarrass yourself with a silly fall but also break/wound something in the process.  Walked back from the bank in the pouring rain and slipped on the wet grass, pinning my arm in the process.  And getting covered with mud.  F***!!!

      Ya know,  whenever I've fallen or gotten hurt on a bike or skateboard or whatever,  I usually jump up wondering if anyone saw, rather than worrying about the pain.  My pride must be what gets hurt the most LOL.

      @Machine Thanks!  I have much more mobility with my arm today.  My NFL team kicking butt just before the playoffs helps improve my disposition.

      @GoldLeaderEXACTLY how I was feeling.  Although the pain didn't really kick in until a bit later.  But I did NOT want to look stupid.

  9. Check out any old gaming shops in your area-- you might get lucky. Or perhaps better yet look for any gaming conventions that might come your way. That's where I got my NEO GEO home system. If you can get a memory card off eBay you can transfer your progress to a NEO GEO cabinet with the same game and pick up where you left off!
  10. Those "Butter Popcorn" Jelly Bellies tastes nothing like buttered popcorn.  They do, however, taste like sweet custard.  Yummy!

  11. Hey gang! You ever notice moments on TV or movies where someone is playing a game and the sounds you hear supposedly coming from the game are CLEARLY NOT the sounds from the actual game-- they either belong to another game or are just MADE UP game sounds! Stock ones often used incorrectly are from Atari 2600 Donkey Kong (Mario footsteps) or Atari 2600 Pac-Man's death. What incorrect sounds have you noticed, in which shows/movies/commercials/etc.? I think all the games in the 80s show SILVER SPOONS had made-up sounds, due (as is commonplace in such occurrences) to licensing issues.
  12. Infiltrate was the only Apollo game I played. But I really enjoyed it. The enemies looked just like Fry Guys. It was very nerve-wracking when they shot super-fast and would wait on the opposite side of an elevator from you and just hold down the trigger. Yikes!
