  1. The collecting world has gone mad with this COVID stuff. Everything's jumped up in price, even Wii U systems. $150 at a bare minimum if you want one with a controller, and that's in poor condition. WTF?!

      Yeah, the unemployment bonus to stay at home thing, I think people are blowing that money and milking out the benefits, thinking that when it's over they will be able to just go back to work where they were before, or it will be easy to get hired when ever they feel ready. Employers aren't going to wait around on your lazy ass, and they won't appreciate being taken advantage of like that. You know they are blowing the extra money, because how else do you explain all the stupid spending on fireworks? I know guys that are unemployed that spent $2000 on personal fireworks!

      Pretty sure I saw 2 WiiUs here in a pawn shop.  IIRC, one was $90 and one was $110.  The sign said one had a password and one did not.  Now knowing nothing about it, does a password just unlock the games DLed on the system or is it more important than that?  I've never had one before.

    4. Austin


      @GoldLeader - Yeah, the password is needed to access games bought with that Nintendo Account. I don't think it's the end of the world though--pretty sure you can create a "Guest" account and play physical games normally.

  2. Updated R77 for sale, for anyone interested: 


  3. JagSD pre-orders are open!

      I have the lynx sd card and it is dynamite, I'm not sure I"m going to buy this only because I  have the entire original library, entire songbird library, the entire cd library and like 10 homebrews so while a great product, I don't know if I really need it,

  4. Starting up a NUON live stream on YT right now and I plan on dabbling with each of the 8 games released in North America. Stop in and say hi! https://www.youtube.com/c/gameplayandtalk/live

  5. The Making of Star Fox:

      That is pretty cool! Reminds me of a more layered version of Perturbator, just my initial impression, anyway.

    3. GoldLeader


      I looked at footage of the game, but it was... Too much going on, like to see it and make heads or tails of it, you'd have to strip away 2 layers of backgrounds, 3 layers of explosions and an anime cyberpunk video all playing at the same time.

    4. Austin


      Yeah, visually it's quite busy. You do get used to it once you spend some time with it. The game is basically a love letter to games like Smash T.V.

      Lol! Cause they are retro gaming on their GameCube!! :')

      I imagine it feels the same as when the kiddos bring up TSM_Myth or Summit1g and us old fogeys have no idea who they are.

  8. One of the best NES themes I can think of:

      Good lord. I think I've gotten to level 7. I suck at it. On T2K I could play that long. :(

    4. Austin


      Just stick with it, you'll get the hang of it.

      Oops, here's the link!


    3. GoldLeader


      Oh yeah ! Classic! I own the soundtrack and the remixed soundtrack.

    4. thanatos


      Nice. I love "The Grid" intro.

  12. Quick question: Does the top loader NES use the same A/C adapter as the front loader?

  13. Had my arcade monitor repaired over the weekend. Looks almost as good as new!

    1. Keatah


      What did they do?

    2. save2600


      Rejuvenation boost?

  14. Tax "returns" blow.

    1. toptenmaterial


      It depends. For a guy like me who only made 8k on the books and declared zero, it's a godsend.

  15. Working long hours Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Yay. At least I'll get a vacation-like break at the end of the week for doing it.

    1. GoldLeader


      Hopefully you get paid extra!

    2. Austin


      Nah, unfortunately. But it works out--my position is set up where if I work a holiday, I get to take a paid day off. What usually happens is it sets me up for an extra long weekend I wouldn't normally have.

  16. Going live with some Jaguar Cybermorph! Wish me luck.. https://gaming.youtube.com/c/AustinMackertGT/live

      ...Sorry I missed your Cybermorph session.

  17. Rest in peace, Chester Bennington.

      If people are going to cheer for celeb deaths, it ought to be for scumbag killers like O.J. Simpson, not musicians they don't care for.

    3. lushgirl_80


      He was the only musician from that group that I liked. The rest are annoying(never liked Linkin Park),but Chester was a good singer. If they had gotten rid of the cornball rapper guy in the group and made the songs with him just singing it would've been better imo. Anyways RIP..Seems like a trend for these grunge/alternative rock guy types to off themselves,sad.

    4. GoldLeader


      R.I.P. I'll crank "What I've Done" in your honor.
