    Asterix repro?

    They're welding gloves. Why would anyone want to cause themselves certain hand pain by using a CX-40 while wearing welding gloves, unless it's some kind of "iron fingertip" karate exercise?
  2. Bubble Bobble, easily. Hopefully 2600 Zoo Keeper will eventually be found in its entirety, the sound code that has been found is pretty sweet. And Basketbrawl on the 7800/Lynx basically is Arch Rivals with even better fighting. And you know that 2600 Electric Yo-Yo already exists, right? A faster version that wasn't so easy would be cool, though.
  3. I can't stand most NES music. I liked it when I first heard it, but the tinkly bass-free sound doesn't hold up well in comparison to C64, 2600, or even CV music. The worst, though, has to be the horrible rendition of "Can't Stop Believin'" on the 2600 version of Journey Escape. How has no one brought it up yet?
  4. It's a fun little 2-player game, although I always preferred handhelds for my video baseball action...until Baseball Stars came out for the NES, anyway. Way better than the original Football.
  5. That may be the case with my NES as it is from Pharoah Video in Arab, Alabama, I'll bet my machine MORE than payed for itself 1008632[/snapback] One of mine (the one I cannibalized to get the one I got NIB in '88 working again) is from Scott's Video Rentals in Ragland, which was an awesome store when they still carried old cult B-movies on VHS and NES/Game Boy games, but now is like every other store around here: Nothing but recent DVDs, PS2/XBox/GC games, and a tanning bed (Bet Pharoah has one of those too now).
  6. Depends on the store. I know a few mom-and-pops around here in Alabama that rented NES games into this decade (one actually rented out Game Boy/Game Boy Color games as well, I bought a lot of their unlicensed/rare stuff for those). The big chains pretty much dumped the older systems as soon as the new generation was firmly entrenched. I doubt you could get NES stuff at Blockbuster or Hollywood after 1995 when all the carts got shoved off the shelf and replaced with Playstation and Saturn CDs. A few stores actually rented 2600 games out as well during its heyday. I never saw that myself, but someone here (Rick Weis???) has a few carts that came in VHS-sized rental boxes from a store somewhere in NY.
  7. I'm surprised he doesn't post here. Are any of those other screenshots from actual games? I know they're not 2600 or CV titles, but they could be from the like Vic-20 or something . . .
  8. They're quite good about shipping and such, but yeah, the games are copies. Not sure about the bare PCBs covered in tape as to whether they're copies or cannibalized from broken carts. Not a big deal if you're wanting them for pure play purposes instead of collecting, though, and they're the best source for CV/ADAM stuff out there. Better than eBay, where half the Coleco carts will always be mislabeled as Atari 2600 carts and often shoved in lots with same.
  9. The Acer logo was designed as part of a plan to merge with Commodore and form a new company called Giant Dong Technologies. Sadly, this never happened.
  10. All those carts looked perfectly shiny and new. I'm guessing they got a label scan from somewhere (here??) and made all of them, or at least most of them. As common as ET is, it's not as common as label-less Combat. As for the ending, I thought they were trying to beat the game on all of them. The idea that there's this substantially more awesome version (Yeah, I like it) of ET that got buried isn't part of the legend.
  11. OK, I understand what you mean now, and yeah, why wasn't such a device made for the N64? Will the Revolution have the ability to play downloaded games for the portable systems as well as the NES/SNES/N64? I'm pretty sold on it already, but that would make it a definite must-buy.
  12. Adventure is controversial? I've never known it to have many vocal detractors. Most people like it and the rest don't bother to shake up the (mostly undeserved) Haterade about it like they do about Pac-Man, ET, DK, etc.
  13. Buy some homebrews, you won't regret it. Then snag a large lot of common popular games on FeePay, since there are always plenty of those floating around. But make sure they're the format that matches your system.
  14. Are you trying to plug the force feedback thing that's supposed to go in your controller into the console? Sounds like it.
  15. No to Joust, although it's great and better than any other home port ever. Breakout/Super Breakout and Battlezone would both definitely qualify in my book, and of course Combat since there was no plane mode in Tank. Solar Fox is dead even with its arcade counterpart, but I wouldn't call it better.
