  2. This is an outstanding and very informative review. I love these controllers and they deserve more exposure. Excellent quality stuff. Thanks for posting this.
  3. For a couple of days I actually let my Atari Age subscription expire. I really felt exposed. It was like the time I had a dream where I was standing naked in front of my high school class and all the kids were yelling "that guy's dingus is hanging out!" At least I think that was a dream.

      Totally understand. Mine been expired for about a year. No longer working has lots of advantages, but some disadvantages as well. Have to watch my budget for the first time in a long while.

      How strange, I had the same dream about you, but chalked it up to pre-release hype for the new Watchmen show. :-D

      I guess I'm lucky,...I once dreamt I was in Music class in 4th grade and I was naked, but the lights were out and they were showing a film strip so no one could tell...

      I liked it. I agree the laughing audience was obnoxious at first and needed mixed out of the audio...It's on my DVR haven't seen it yet.

      That D&D episode with Shatner, Kevin Smith, Kareem Abdul Jabbar, + Joe Maganiello playing over at Wil Wheaton's house was pretty awesome! Plus Mark Hamill on the wedding episode, and Newhart..Man gotta say they've had some nice guest stars!

      Stay away from Sunny D. Otherwise it'll give ya "Muddy D."

  8. Did somebody say McDonald’s? Look for the Golden Arches. You deserve a break today. It’s a good time for the great taste of McDonald’s. Two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions, on a sesame seed bun. It’s Mac tonight. Food, folks and fun. Bah-da-bum-bah-bah. I’m lovin’ it.

      Wasn't there a burger years ago made partly of seaweed called Arch Deluxe? I'll have to look it up, but I remember liking it. But, yes, as some have said, McDonalds is not healthy, and I admit an addiction of once-a-week (I believe even that is too much, from what I've read).

      It's a good time for the great taste. On the go after the show. Tasty fries, delicious pies disappear before your eyes. McDonald's and... You.

      Have you guys noticed the latest McD's commercials? They are using the music from the movie Brazil...

  10. I just want to chime in with my 2 cents on this console. It's an absolutely incredible product. Analogue has made me a believer, so much so that I'm probably also going to pick up their Super NT. This machine is off the charts. Solid build and so many customization options that it's almost overwhelming. Speaking of which, it would be nice to see the community members share some of their recommended option settings for ideal image and sound. The standard out of the box settings are great, but I imagine that some of you AV pros might have some tweaks. Digital Foundry posted an excellent review with some suggestions and it has also been very helpful. Another thing I want to rave about is that amazing M30 controller from 8Bitdo. I was on the fence after hearing about connectivity issues in various Amazon reviews. I am happy to say that I haven't experienced a single issue. The controller is one of the most solid, well built and responsive wireless controllers I have ever owned. I have really put it through a serious test too playing some of the most demanding fight games and shooters. It performs flawlessly every time. For those of you who prefer wired controllers I must recommend the new Sega licensed 6 button pad from Retro Bit. It is far better quality than the controller available from Hyperkin. It's a well built pad with a lengthy 10 foot cord. I also picked up a Mega EverDrive x5. What a fantastic device. My only disappointment is that I can't seem to play Game Gear games on the Mega Sg. Other than that small complaint it is a very worthy investment. I have not stopped playing my Mega Sg since it arrived. Definitely worth every penny.
  11. Those new Atari Jaguar Pro Controllers are absolutely freaking fantastic! The best investment I ever made in my Jaguar collection. My Jag has been getting more play than ever before.

      I did find that one of the two I ordered had the interal board for the joypad mounted slightly off-center. There are some instructions for fixing this in the Jag forum - very easy to do.

      Cereal toys were so much better when the companies didn't worry about us choking to death on them.

  13. What’s your GI Joe codename? Mine would be Slinky, because I’m always slinking around.

  14. GI Joe is the codename for America's daring, highly trained, special mission force. Its purpose: To defend human freedom against COBRA, a ruthless, terrorist organization determined to rule the world.

      Only now, decades later, are we learning that COBRA wanted to provide universal healthcare, a $30/hr. minimum wage, and a guaranteed basement/rec room arcade for everyone.

      How do you soften a mustache? Ask someone with swamp ass to sit on your face?
