  1. For those who have seen it, what are your opinions on Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker? Don’t hold back.

      I liked it quite a bit, overall.  A bit action-heavy, but that's okay.  I liked that it had a lot of ties to the original trilogy.  It was a satisfying conclusion to this trilogy and I think they could have done way worse.

      I enjoyed it a lot!  It's the only episode of 7, 8 and 9 that I want to go and pay to see in theatres again.  I felt like a kid watching it... next to my 10 year old son yet!  lol

      I was very happy with it.  Thought it was a satisfying ending.

      That's actually my choice if there is no coffee, regular Coke.

  3. Did you ever wonder where Linus got his strange, occultic belief in the Great Pumpkin? Childhood imagination or something more sinister?

      The only reason you're not asking this question about Santa Claus is that, let's face it, Santa has had more publicity.

      I look at the Great Pumpkin and the Peanuts Christmas Special as a two-part salvation for Linus, because he's the one quoting the Bible. Somewhere in between, he was converted. 

  4. I just want to say that I am so jealous of everyone who went to the Portland Retro Gaming Expo this year. It really looked like an amazing show!

  5. They say tomato, you say tahmatoe, I say TAMAYTAH!

  6. For whatever reason I can’t get any Game Genie codes to work on my Mega EverDrive 5. Nothing but a red screen every time, for every game. Can anyone help?

      Ahh,yes. We're witnessing it right now in our own society... the de-evolution of the man animal!

  9. I’m just monitoring this situation before I talk the plunge. Aside from the early reviewers, has anyone heard from users on other sites about receiving their product? For example Reddit or Digital Press?
  10. I would like to apologize for all the times that I said I have no idea what’s going on, when in fact, I knew what was going on the whole time.

  11. That's an awfully disparaging remark. I thought these folks had already proven themselves with their Neo SD line of products? The only thing I worry about is that they might might a Mega SD Pro six months from now, similar to what they did with the Neo SD / Neo SD Pro. They seem to have the support of Analogue Interactive, and their products are top notch. That alone is enough to make me have confidence in this device.
  12. After all these years and decades of exhaustive searching no one has discovered the location of Funky Town.

      Thought about movin' there...I was all, "Gotta make a move to a town that's right for me' ...and I talked about it talked about it talked about it talked about it...

  13. I guess it’s time for another round of ask the experts. My question for today is about the Neo SD and the Neo SD Pro. Does anyone know what improvements the Neo SD Pro offers over the original? Also is it true that you can run Neo Geo CD games on the Pro?
  14. I really am looking forward to hearing first impressions from early adopters. I never thought I would trade up from my trusty Ever Drive but this is mighty tempting. I’d like to retire my Sega CDX. I also could do without the load times.
  15. The trailer for the new Cats movie is  the MOST TERRIFYING THING MANKIND WILL EVER WITNESS.

  17. This is an outstanding and very informative review. I love these controllers and they deserve more exposure. Excellent quality stuff. Thanks for posting this.
  18. 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!

  23. 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...

  25. 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.
