    Classic arcade and video games, T.V. shows from the 70's and 80's, arcade game restoration.
  1. I know here it was in the early 90s when they started the the conversions from Showbiz to Chuck E Cheese. Before that it was the ball pit.
  2. Long Island? Man, I grew up in Poughkeepsie! We were practically neighbors!!!! And thank you!!!!
  3. Chuck E Cheese was awesome back the late 70s and through most of the 80s. An arcade WITH PIZZA? (and the pizza was pretty good back then...) There were many more like it, but Chuck E Cheese was what I had and it was great!
  4. Astro Fighter was always one of those visceral favorites of mine- meaning when you even look at the game, those familiar smells, and yes, tastes of that bygone era come flooding into my head again. It was 1980. We had a little Mom and Pop Deli up the road from our house. I rode my bike there every chance I got. If my Mom needed ANYTHING from the store, I was on it! The reason- they had a 5 piece arcade in the back! They had this game- I could play for hours! We always needed bread at home- Mom would give me $2.00 for a loaf of bread that cost .60! So, I could get a Twix bar, (or a Whatchamacallit, before they put caramel in them, by the way!) a Nehi Grape, and enough for a game or two! So, every time I play this game, it just takes me back. This game is STUNNING on the 7800! I looks and plays like the arcade version! And I should know- Not only would I highly recommend this game, but I'd like to post a review over on my site, if it's ok. Thank you for the great memories this morning!!!!!
  5. Hey Tempest- This is RayGunn from DisneyQuest. Ive had a DECO system (at the time I think it was playing Burgertime?- ahh, it was 1982- so it's getting foggy) but I have several modern equivalents that work the same way. In the newer PC based games,that's how they work- software loads off the CD, after being confirmed by the dongle that it has the right software version to run. and 90% of the time, it's the dongle causing the problem. Now,in a previous reply, you had mentioned that the game would load just fine, then crash. Now if I were a betting man, I would say it's the dongle. The software wouldn't just load and start running, then go down if it was a faulty cassette. Also, I'm figuring the dongle would be harder to get than the software, I would replace that first. Just a guess.
  6. I'm Nintendo: I just signed a contract with Universal, to have characters and rides based on my properties, I've finally (sort of) got a grasp of my "new" system, the Wii U, with titles like Super Smash Bros, Mariocart 8, and Splatoon. Nintendo World Championships 2015!!!!! Tons of new games on the horizon, what am I doing? counting the money! I just did a podcast on this! https://arcadearchives.wordpress.com/2015/05/10/electric-circus-episode-7-nintendo-and-universal/
  7. No... The most disturbing (yet highly accurate first round playfield) goes to- Donkey Kong Jr. ( Jr's scary looking- like a real hairy kid was hired to play him!) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aVZ9lmAAvlo (kinda looks like Teen Wolf!)
  8. Howsabout a little GABAGOUL? little Sopranos reference there... and if you don't know what gabagoul is- Capocollo (in the United States, cappicola or gabagoul; in Canada, capicollo or capicolla),[1] or coppa, is a traditional Italian pork cold cut (salume) made from the dry-cured muscle running from the neck to the 4th or 5th rib of the pork shoulder or neck. This cold cut is sometimes called coppa. The name capocollo comes from capo("head") and collo ("neck") of a pig. The Italian word "capocollo'" is of Italian origin, but its precise etymology is unknown (in Latin caput means head and collum means head or head and neck). It is a whole muscle salume, dry cured and, typically, sliced very thin. It is similar to the more widely known cured ham or prosciutto, because they are both pork-derived cold-cuts that are used in similar dishes. However, coppa is not brined as ham typically is. (from wikipedia- cause they're always right!) Seriously- this is an awesome port! You have given this game not only the arcade look- but the arcade feel! and as you can see... I'm a big fan of the original.
  9. Close it? I think it should have it's own section in the forum that we can bump from time to time 'till the internets are no more!
  10. I have to say- in my opinion, this thread is better the Hulk movies that have been released in the last decade or so!!!!! Thank you, airgames!
  11. Yup... here's my copy- it's legit. Greatest.Thread. Ever.
  12. Another classic that deserves some love is Sega's PULSAR-
  13. Cat Trax is a Pac - Man style game ( eating dots, avoid bad guy) where in Make Trax, you actually paint the maze, weird things walk in your paint ( making you repaint the areas they walked in) No power pellets, energizers, or power ups! you have 2 two rollers placed in the maze- get the fish to follow you there and roll em' over! They never go away, but you can only use them in the same area. There are also 6 exits! A great game that has been overlooked long enough!!!!
  14. ... I couldn't help myself. This is one game that I wish had been done in the early days of the VCS. Loved Bosconian back in 81' and this is a perfect version for the Atari! GREATJOB!!!!
