      Frogger is not the 2600 version. It has no music but it is a decent rendition.

    4. DragonGrafx-16

      This was done on a work order at my job … you can't unsee that

      I hope you don't work in the restaurant business and some customer ordered deep fried cockroaches. Or what do I know, perhaps those would be yummy?

    4. retrorussell


      Saying "cock-a-roach" is bad enough.

      Of all instruments in grade school, my brother chose the viola. Small world!  🤣

      Viola is my Grandmothers name.

      R.I.P. you will always be my favorite person to walk this planet.

      PG&E once shut off power to my apartment at 4.54pm on a Friday for nonpayment.  The irony was that I'd paid the bill that morning, in person, in one of their offices.  It wasn't even overdue; they just screwed up and left me without power for an entire weekend, copping the attitude of, "gee, that sucks."


      That's at the low end of the scale compared to what they've recently been up to, but PG&E can eat a fat turd in hell as far as I'm concerned.

  22. Finally playing Metroid Prime for the first time

      I could not defeat the final boss, sadly.

    3. CaptainBreakout


      Possibly my favorite game ever, besides Star Control II.  Certainly one of the most polished- a pleasure to play.

    4. BydoEmpire


      There were a lot of great parts, but a lot of frustration as well.  IMHO MP3: Corruption is the pinnacle - all the great bits of the Prime series, none of the bad.

  23. Ric Ocasek RIP

    1. Stephen


      Damn it.  We only lost Eddie Money a few days ago :(

    2. save2600


      Heard last night - how sad. Love The Cars and most of Ric's solo stuff.

    3. sramirez2008


      One of my favorites. Was able to see them during my youth.

      RIP Ric Ocasek and thank you for the music.

  24. Saw these recently in one old letter  ...

    " … it was humungass …"

    "... couldn't Carrie a tune …"

    " … raise his son Wright …"

    1. Flojomojo


      and at least one "should of," I'll bet. 

  25. FINALLY!!! I now own Ducktales vol 4, the final 25 episodes! I know it came out last year but I missed it then. Great episodes.

      Ah, the Disney Exclusive volume that goes for a few million dollars?  ;)  Congrats!  Not sure why they made that a club exclusive though, given that the other 3 volumes were not.
