    I want to throw a big party when I get back into my old house. It's a long story. If you want to attend, contact me.

  1. Yes! That's the one! Another book my kids are growing up with is the MS Pac Man takes Baby Pac-Man for a walk... Um book. It's one of mine that survived my childhood, so it's authentic as hell. I think it's a Golden Book, but paperback. The story is typical schlock, but there are mazes in it that little kids can do with their fingers to "help" Ms and Baby Pac. Much better and more often requested then Tron, but hey ... Tron is still Tron. Hmmm. I wonder if there's any Wreck-It Ralph golden books?
  2. Wow! This looks amazing! Sign me up for a cart. Figurative or literally if this thread is monitored. I'll be keeping my eye out for this game!
  3. I got this... I got it in the mail a couple of days ago, just to be honest. Yay! I'm back to buying weird retro stuff now and then! (Divorce is a bitch! -but it does get better.) My 6-year-old son played the tape and had some trouble following it with the book the first time. The next day he got up early, rewound the tape and played it and pretty much followed it all the way through. Tron. A cheesier story has seldom been told. I still love it tho. The best moment was at the end when the narrator excitedly said, "If you want to hear the story again, just turn the tape over!" My son replied out loud, "No, thank you." Good manners, that kid.
  4. Cheers! I find all this hilarious. When I die, if there is a market for retro games and consoles, my stuff will be a really nifty series of gems and bombs when it hits the open market. Not because I own a bunch of holy grails or anything (although maybe I have a small handful), but because my stuff is shamelessly mixed with repros and home-made one-of-a-kinds. _I_ know which are which, but it's gonna take a heckofan expert to figure it out without me. Is that a real Tooth Protectors? Yes. A real NTSC Asterix? No. A real Malagai? ... Kind of. I never curated my collection with the intention of anyone liquidating it. It was, and is, a living bunch of games that I try to keep working. I've been doing this for years, on and off, while also dealing with real life. It's stuff I think all the background stories are entertaining. When this weird legacy hits the market, if it ever does, it will be a cool bunch of puzzles and pranks. I'll be laughing in my grave. Assuming the market exists.
  5. Hmmm. I wonder if the Toys R Us building in Sunnyvale is still haunted (it used to be pretty famous). My cousin used to work there. It would be interesting to see what is in the building now. Would be an awesome Spirit store!
  6. If we want to see Dr Moocowz go crazy, his Secret Santa this year might want to consider sending him a Jaguar Rotary controller. 🤭
  7. Groovy! And, yes I agree. I believe chicgamer and I are planning on hosting again. We are starting to talk about it again. It's looking like that seems to be fine with everyone. 😊
  8. I like the idea of announcing it earlier... BUT I don't think putting it on the front page would work out... I think that would increase our visibility to opportunistic freeloaders. I think keeping it subtle in the forums seems to work out well for the "in the know" long time AA members and/or true enthusiasts. Seems to have worked out well so far.
  9. Starting early was fun. It doesn't seem as necessary this year since I believe most of the shipping problems seem to improved. Anyone want to weigh in? I'm fine with starting early- having cheer in the atmosphere for longer seems like a good thing. Deadlines don't need to be quite as early.
  10. Sounds a little like Temple of Apshai. It also brings to mind the game my 4th grade class played on the PET... It was simply called Dungeon.
  11. Here's another one of my favs that rarely gets mentioned... Totally weird cute game that you can end up playing all day (at least back then... Does anyone have the time anymore?) I read somewhere that this was the devs' first game, and they went on to make Pokémon. Two player mode: Imagine Bomberman on acid.
  12. Hahaha! Yeah, that's kinda what I thought. I've been brave enough to suggest God of Thunder as a potential for a Jaguar game around here since it's now open source... But I'm just another fanboy who can't code that great so meh. I DO love it that much tho. Also, God of Thunder is Norse. 😏 Anyways... Maybe this game in question is somewhere in this list? https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Video_games_based_on_Greek_mythology
