  1. What's a classic game you love that seems to be lesser known? (part 2)

      Mostly apogee games and sierra games on PC

  2. Looks like the stories are true.  I stopped in the Goodwill a while back and they had around 100 video games.  Each one said on it somewhere, NHL, MLB, Madden, or Kinect Adventures, whatever the F that is.  My guess is that now donations go into 3 piles:  Ebay, Amazon, and stuff so awful they might as well just leave it in the stores.

      I'd use those for putting a super famicom game into an snes cartridge. No need to mess with the cartridge slot. You would have to find a replacement label though but that's not bad.

  3. I just really love the Genesis, in all its forms. It's my Deserted Island system, no doubt. Hope there's electricity on the island.

      While I think the Super Nintendo is a little better, the Genesis is my 3rd favorite system of the 90s behind the PS1. SNES is the best, and the N64 is fourth.

  4. Manager forced me to give my boss's number because he claimed I was being "disrespectful" toward customers. Since when does "I don't work here" become disrespectful you POS? Seriously next manager to call me out on that's going to get a lawsuit.

  6. Would you consider the Playstation 2 to be a retro or classic console at this point? It's now as old as the Colecovision was when the Playstation 2 came out. And that makes me feel old.

    1. copper20

      Honestly I consider Sega Saturn to be the last of the retro systems.

      Black Friday should have never been invented. Retarded big departments are ruining November.

      Evacuate already if you haven't. Get out - you don't want to be in the way of this natural troublemaker.

  10. I timed it, and I got over 6 hours of battery life out of my Sega Game Gear. It's a much better portable system than what most people would lead you to believe.

      I hate the screen of the Game Gear, it's too hard to see, even after capacitor replacements and LED replacements.

      copper20

      Tried to collect 8 tracks and Betamax but couldn't find anything to play them with. Trying to find a good 8 track player is just torture anyway for me. And me thinking about going into LaserDisc? No thanks, I'll stick with VHS if I'm going to use a dead film format. It's cheap and reliable.

  12. Kim Kardashian's butt deflation cost her 100,000 Instagram followers.

    1. copper20

      copper20

      Kardashian is the one that made selfie a popular word likely, and potentially emojis as well - two things I hate.

  14. VCR almost got killed thanks to a dirty tape - glad I have my VCR head cleaning tape still.

      No it wasn't a pornographic movie - it had dirt on it or something and I couldn't get the picture to appear until I ran the VCR cleaner multiple times.

      Game Gear was pretty good but the screen was garbage.

  16. I'm 22 minutes into Rogue One and Tarkin's face looks like fake video game crap. Maybe they'll get it right in 5 or 10 more years, but that face needs more work before it would look real to me and cause me not to wince.

      Hey they tried unlike Lucas. Give them a break.

       

      They didn't overuse CGI in Force Awakens and Rogue One.

  17. BP was 150/89 after getting the magazines on the shelf at CVS. Then it went down to 128/82 about 2 minutes later. I'm sure it's even lower than that - I had readings of 117/75 at one point.

      I don't have any symptoms of high blood pressure and I think it only went up because of physical activity.

      Simpsons was really good up to Season 11, but there were still a very few duds in the seasons before such as Principal and the Pauper and Homer's Odyssey.

      And to extend my complaint on these things, there's NO EXTENSIONS OR APPS TO BLOCK THEM!!!! It's my biggest gripe.

      The turd one is one of the most offensive things I've ever seen. There's nothing cute and adorable about emojis they're stupid. I wish I could just burn down every cushion of these stupid icons.

      I think so, on the Windows version in the early 90s. It's still fun to see how fast my entire party dies, we used to do that back in the day.

      Most of the TV shows I watch (All cartoons) I get on DVD. Or VHS as a last resort when I typically use it for older movies.

  24. If my crt has weird colors in the corners, it needs to be degaussed? And to do that, you just repeatedly turn it on briefly then unplug it for 20 mins?

    1. copper20

      copper20

      That happens to mine too. I think it happens to all CRT tvs, it just happens and it takes multiple tries.

       

      Mine doesn't have a degausser switch but it degausses when it turns on.
