  1. Well that's a new one. I just had an update downloaded to my Sony television remote control. I have no idea what it consisted of, and am only left questioning why a remote control needs an update.

    1. Omega-TI


      If your remote has a sponsored service button it may have needed updating?

  2. Can Activision Decathlon be played with the Track & Field controller? I mean all of it...

  3. "I'm gonna take you to the bank Senator Trent. To the Blood Bank" hahaha one of the worst one-liners ever. Guess the movie.

      Hard to Kill (Steven Seagal)

  4. Watching F.I.S.T right now. This is definitely a lesser known Sylvester Stallone flick, but really good.

  5. Lee Van Cleef is so epic. I'm torn though, is he more or less awesome for wearing the exact same outfit in every spaghetti western? He wears a black duster with a shoulder cape. Almost every spaghetti!

    1. x=usr(1536)


      True, but he broke with both the role and outfits in Escape From New York, though his shirt remained black...

  6. The eye doctor told me to not consider  corrective laser surgery until after my eyes change to needing bifocals. He said if you do it before, at my age (45), you could need it again in 6 months. Makes sense. 

    1. john_q_atari


      After growing up wearing glasses, and now wearing soft contacts for decades, I can't ever see myself going the surgery route.

    2. jd_1138


      My wife's uncle is a prominent ophthalmologist who still practices at age 83 and has like 55 years experience. When I first met him in 2014, I saw that he wears glasses, and I asked if he recommends corrective surgery.  He replied that he'd never get it and never recommends it because things can go wrong. Some people experience horrible pain the rest of their lives after getting it done. Of course this is just the advice of ONE eye doc -- admittedly at the end of his career.  But he's the smartest person in my family. He graduated summa cum laude with a BS in Physics and went to medical school.

      I had RK done in, lessee '95.  That's Knives not Lasers.  It was Fantastic!,...Lasted for decades too, but eventually my eyesight went down a bit on its own and I wear glasses (minor "progressives").  I asked about LASIK to correct a mild astigmatism in one eye but the doc said it was too minor to worry about...

  7. Michael Fassbender kind of looks like Peter Cushing.

  8. So, I usually have about 5-6 game consoles hooked up at any given time. Eventually, one doesn't see much play for months, then I put it away and replace it with a different  console. Then, about 2 weeks later, I start craving to play the console that I just boxed up. It's true, you don't miss it until it's gone.

    1. masschamber


      makes sense, I personally have only 2 console hooked up at any time (7800 is always in, the other changes), but I have a dozen stored on a coffee table underneath my game table all ready to be swapped out the second I want something else.

    2. Rogerpoco


      I go with Masschambers style pretty much.

      At my "other haunt", I've been Peer Choice "Most Prolific" for three years running now, which to me means "does the most different things, *pretty well*", tho they don't quite define it that way(I think it's based on..."being entertaining/enthusiastic", lol.).

      I really only started playing the classic systems again about 5 years ago, but I have well over a couple dozen now.

      I'll get on one primary system, and kinda make a list of things I want to accomplish before "putting it up for a while", but in the meantime I'll occasionally distract myself with another system to break up the monotony.

      When I complete or give up on my goals(lol), I'll put the primary towards "the back of the line", pick a new primary, and keep cycling thru, eventually getting back to everything.

      Except NES. Christ, I can't score on that system. Really my "main" system, as far as becoming a "gamer"(I remember being "too young" for Atari, but others my Age were good, so I think I was just..."slow".), but it friggin hates me...

    3. bluejay


      I just have everything set up next to my 1702. But then again I don't have that much stuff to hook up. Only  VIC-20, 128, NES, SNES, and N64. I just plug in whatever I want to play whenever I want to play.

  9. Just bought The Herculoids dvd set.

    1. SlidellMan


      I grew up on a lot of Wildey/Toth HB cartoons when I first started watching Cartoon Network. Both men, however, deserved to be paired with writers that were better than what HB, Ruby-Spears, etc. hired.

    2. GoldLeader


      The Classic!   I used to love that on Saturday mornings!  (I didn't even know or care that they were reruns in the 70's...)

  10. Ned Flanders: “If it’s clear and yella, you’ve got juice there, fella; if it’s tangy and brown, you’re in cider town!”

  11. Is Patrick Swayze's hair in Roadhouse a mullet or not? Is it just big hair?

      I'm gonna go with not-a-mullet. It looks like he's had it short and he's just starting to grow it out.

      Interesting answers. I've had the same confusion about Mel Gibson's Lethal Weapon 'do. Not sure if it's a mullet or big hair. Now, Van Damme in Hard Target, that's a mullet!

    4. joeatari1


      I keep telling my wife that I'm going to have a mullet one of these days.  She said the only way you're going to have that is if you buy a time travelling DeLorean.:rolling:

  12. Well it's that time of year where I'm just really tired of mowing grass.

    1. simbalion


      For me, I am getting tired of dew points in the 70's. We maybe get one day of relief and then it shoots right back up to sauna mode.

  13. Anybody seen Notzilla? 

  14. Super-geek mode ON: I opened 9 packs of Double Masters and got 4 mythic rares, that's insane! 3 of those were Sword of Feast and Famine, Sword of Body and Mind and an Imperial Recruiter. Best pulls I've ever had probably since my first starter deck back in 1994.

  15. Castlevania 64 is a good game.

      Nice to hear.  Generally, I hear nothing but negative comments about it.  I loved it at launch, and have played through it multiple times over the years.

    3. SlidellMan


      To tell you guys the truth, I have gotten sick and tired of all the flak towards it. Especially when there are worse games made in the past ten years that would make even Maddox and Tom Fulp want to apologize towards it.

      It's certainly a rather relaxed game when you play it, I never feel rushed. Kind of just take your time and figure out the puzzles, and move on. The auto-targeting works really well, and my biggest complaint would be the shoddy camera, which is usual for N64 titles, so it's not like CV64 stands out negatively in that regard either.

  16. I'm happy to see fast food places reducing the amount of items available, even if it's items I happen to buy. The whole industry has had overly bloated menus for too long.

      What's worse with the bloated menus is the switch to friggen animated TV menu boards with videos and all the stuff moving around, just show the damn menu!



    3. GoldLeader


      Yeah, it was a Taco Bell TacoBurger type deal (Pretty good, on occasion back when I ate meat)...It was on the menu from the 70's til I think the 90's (?) actually.

    4. GoldLeader


      It is kind of funny, last night at Taco John's drive thru, after ordering Potato Oles, with a side of Nacho Cheese, of course, and a burrito, I asked for Pintos and Cheese, then the gal said "A side of beans?" And I said Yes, then I couldn't remember if it was Taco John's or Taco Bell that always called it Pintos and Cheese, and most side items were nowhere to be found on the menu...And a big sign outside the menu said, All of our combo #s have changed.  Not sure why, but OK, and then she said, I don't know, things change pretty fast around here.  I do know since COVID that Taco John's also had frozen TJ Burritos that you could buy and cook at home later, but I didn't see those on the menu either...

  17. Let's see, I'll have 16 Gravy Scrape'ems, a bucket of Twisty Lard, and two Super Choker Breakfast Burritos with macho sauce. And mega-size it please! And I'll have a diet coke, deep fried..../Homer Simpson

      Sounds yummy if you ask me (even though I’d at best be able to get half of of down my throat).

    2. Shawn


      That sounds like the recipe for a heart attack old friend. 

  18. I'm watching this movie on TV right now called Roll Bounce. It's a comedy with roller disco, it's actually not bad...lol

      Great film!

  19. "So what you're telling me is, Napoleon was a short, dead dude."

      Strange things are afoot at the Circle K.

      It seems to me the only thing you've learned is that Caesar is a "salad dressing dude."

  20. Just heard a commercial on the radio for a mini golf place called Ninja Golf!

    1. masschamber


      only reasonable response is to go, let us know how the giant frogs were.

      That has to be it! Granger, IN is only 20 minutes from my house. That looks cool, it must be really new.

  21. I told the operations manager at work to tell people that this coming Friday would not be a day off from work, because the 4th of July was cancelled due to coronavirus. He thought it was humorous but won't pull that prank.

      Yeah, so if a National Holiday happens to land on a weekend, most businesses are required to provide a paid day off to compensate. Businesses don't get to cheat you out holiday pay because of the 'luck of the draw' on their part.

    3. carlsson


      Aha! That is not the case over here. We have "employees' years" where most holidays happen on weekdays, and "employers' years" where many of those happen on weekends. In the end it is thought that this evens out.

      Husband: "Was that fireworks or gunshots?"


      Wife: "Stick your head out the front door and find out."




      Wife: "I didn't like him anyway."


  22. We had chili cheese dogs and baked beans for dinner last night. I think you could label that a double whammy.

      Or you could take the Haribo sugar-free gummy bear challenge and eat 5 pounds of gummy bears and your butt will feel like Mount St. Helens exploding in no time.

    3. thanatos


      For room clearing results, have Bass Ale and Spam the same day.  Random, but yeah, that happened once in the college dorms.


    4. Trinity


      Two cans of Chef Boyardee ravioli's and about half a box of Golden Grahams cereal. OMG!

  23. I'm probably not the first person to realize Jim Parsons would make a good PeeWee Herman

  24. I really enjoy the Hardcore Gaming 101 series of books. Good screenshots, full color, and very nice background info on the games discussed. Highly recommended.

    1. Zoyous


      I've got their two volumes of Sega Arcade Classics. I did spot a couple of errors, but for the most part they're excellent and I learned from them. I definitely want to get some more of their books.

  25. Oh wow Fission Superstar X is awesome! I had trouble putting this game down last night.
