  1. My advice? Focus less on being a better pilot and more on being a better man.

  2. Our family ended up with both a Wii U and Playstation copy of Lego Batman 3. We prefer the PS controllers for the game, so I am looking to trade the Wii U version. The game IS opened but used for less than one hour, in perfect condition, of course, complete with manual and case. Looking to get back a comparable Wii U title (Rayman Legends would be great), but also open to other new gen trade (PS4 or XB1). Any questions, please ask. Thanks.

  4. Very generous, thank you! Now if we could just get someone on the Intelly side to release Space Patrol and Ms. Night Stalker as ROMs...
  5. It warmed my heart today that my children made a point in their Christmas cards to talk about how much they appreciate God's gift of His Son, Jesus Christ, over 2,000 years ago.

      I appreciate Jesus' sacrifice as much as the next fellow.

  6. Tomb Raider PS4 -- solid B+ -- great shooting, some solid puzzles (bit too simple), some climbing/clambering (bit too easy), decent ending boss. Good story but mediocre voice acting. Excellent graphics and sound. NOT ENOUGH TOMB RAIDING.

      I still need to beat the first tomb raider lol

      But could it run on the jaguar? ;)

  7. Filled up the car's gas tank for $38. I cannot remember the last time it was so cheap to do that.

      same here! Cadillac is usually a pig, not today!

  8. I have the Space Patrol cart but would love a ROM, whether for free or for purchase.
  9. Winning the gaming community over to the joys of King's Field, one gamer at a time...

      Good game, I need to play it more. Maybe after I beat Diablo II :)

  10. Nothing says Thanksgiving like waiting on line for hours to buy cheaply produced stuff at a "discount". Really shameful what this holiday has become, but after all look at what Christmas has become... As for me, I refuse to shop on Thanksgiving.

      People have forgotten what this holiday is supposed to be about. Ditto Christmas and especially Easter.

      I think my teachers told me that this holiday is a celebration of our dominance over Native Americans. The ceremonial eating of the turkey represents our devouring of the country.

      I think your teachers are morons.

  12. That Atari Game Over documentary on Xbox Video is excellent.

  13. Right, and you have every right to buy what you want at the price you want; you are not obligated to buy something from someone simply because he is an AtariAge member.
  14. Interesting that you say this, because I've heard complaints that Atari made a mistake and that a RIGHTY's controller should use the left hand for the stick and the right for a fire button. If you notice, nowadays on controllers the left thumb controls and right thumb fires. I personally, as a righty, however, prefer the upper left fire button on the CX (a controller I really dig btw).
  15. I agree. It's a commentary on the state of our society and its moral decay.
  16. Still wondering when Sony and/or Microsoft will release any games as good as what is on the Wii U. 2016?

      Wii U may not be the obvious choice but of the good games it has, they're the best of their genre. They may only release a handful of must-have titles per year but I'm a father of two...'a handful' is more than I have time to play.

      That's a big part of why I have no interest in those systems.. No compelling games. And the whole need for an paid online service thing.

      The thing is: It's not like there's no games beside shooters for PS4 either. Great games are few, as they are on the WiiU, but they are there. Infamous 3 is very cool.Dragon Age 3 just came out. Assassins Creed. Resogun. Velocity 2X. Last of Us. Next year will see the release of Bloodborne, which will likely be when I finally buy. It's all up to personal tastes, and eventhough I don't play fps, I still find a lot more to enjoy than on WiiU. Tbh, I wasn't satisfied with a N...

  17. I could swear someone just said "I want to pay Amish to my childhood..."

      It wouldn't surprise me. It probably happened for the same reason that "for all intensive purposes" happens: most people read relatively little, so they learn expressions and idioms as they hear them, and they don't always hear them correctly.

      You have to wonder what they are thinking it means.

      I also see a lot of people writing "hommage", which is NOT A REAL WORD! If you can't spell, use a spell checker!

  18. Ground-breaking moment. Wife says, "I can see why videogames are so much fun now."

      I hope to get there. Someday..She's actually good at video games just a poor sport when she looses. (I let her win as much as possible)

  19. Duck Hunt coming to Wii U! YES! Now you can toss your CRTs, folks. :)

      Topten, it's not gonna work that great. It requires a Wiimote which means you will have a cursor on the screen most likely (think House of the Dead 2/3 on the Wii). Maybe I'll be wrong and Nintendo gets creative with the controller implementation..

      There are too many good light gun games on too many good systems for my to get rid of my CRT. Plus it's too heavy to move..

  20. Mario Kart 8, a bit of retro action with DK and Balloon Fight, followed by a taste of Sonic Racing Transformed and then a touch of Angry Birds. Got Arkham Asylum and King's Field 4 ready for tonight, plus some Gears 3 co-op. Yeah, it's a gaming day for sure.

  21. I would suggest doing one thing at a time and honoring your commitments to those who have spent money first. And please make DKA a priority, it's the only reason many (most?) of us bought the SGM. Thank you.
  22. I beat it with my pal (I was the wizard, he was the fighter); I remember it feeling a bit disappointing but I felt satisfaction in simply having finished the game. At this time, in that day and age, a great ending wasn't expected.
  23. Thank you, do you recommend a particular VGA box?
