  1. Got a friend to help me with my broken PVM today and we were able to fix it! Can't wait to play some games on it!

      Lemmee get this straight, you had a broken Presbyterian Villages of Michigan? Now how in the world do those break? LOL

      @Save2600 yup, the fix itself wasn't difficult, just bypassed the switch, but getting to it through the wires was tough.

      Also replaced a light panel in the marquee of my arcade cab. A productive day!

  2. Congratulations to Clemson for defeating Alabama in the CFP championship game. Instant classic.

  3. Happy Thanksgiving! Things I'm thankful for: Family, friends, atariage. Things I'm not thankful for: eBay sellers who won't respond to my questions

  4. On eBay, it seems as though every PVM that offers local pickup only also happens to be in California. Seriously, there's like 5 high quality 20 inch PVMs located in California and maybe one anywhere else in the states. Makes me wish I lived close enough to pick one up.

      Always the way huh? Whenever I used to be interested in an Arcade game, it would always be pick up only and be on the East Coast for some reason...

      Had to get mine ordered. No chance in Newfoundland.

      More ebay sellers should offer free local pickup (just have to check a box in the listing form). I always offer free local pickup on all my auctions even small stuff. I will meet them at the Starbucks 2 miles from the house.

  5. I finally got to test my Missile Command TB for the 2600 I ordered from the AtariAge store, but it isn't working at all with my cx80 trackball. I guess this means I need the cx22 version.

      Is your CX80 in Joystick Mode or in Trackball Mode? (There's a switch on the back.)

      does it have the Hulk, corn, Knight Rider or Hello Kitty in it?

  7. Mets SP Matt "Dark Knight" Harvey to have season-ending surgery :(

  8. A thread I have many posts in isn't appearing at the top of "my content" when new posts appear. Odd...

      And a few posts later it's back to normal.

  9. Does anyone know if the Missile Command Trackball hack will work with a wico trackball?

      Thanks guys! I was considering buying a wico 'ball instead of an Atari one, but that's certainly not happening now.

      It's a darn shame that the Wico trackball doesn't have an analog mode like the Atari one and just emulates a joystick, since the build quality and feel of the Wico is enormously better.

  10. Most of the time, procrastinators can do 30 minutes of work in 8 hours, but when "cramming" is activated, they can do 8 hours of work in 30 minutes. Now that is what I call talent.

  11. New trailer for Pokemon Sun & Moon released today. It refers to the new character Lillie as "mysterious," so I hope she turns out to be one of the few really interesting Pokemon characters with actual character development, like N or Cynthia.

  12. He's back! Gotham welcomes the return of the real ace Matt Harvey

      Thank God. Now ESPN can talk about something else. Anything else would be appreciated by the REST of the country.

      I see what you mean. They never did stop talking about him. The irony is all of the talking about how he could get better probably made his mental state worse.

  13. Finally got 4 million in Bust-A-Move (Neo Geo MVS) again. I had done it before but I didn't realize my high scores would disappear and I didn't take a picture. Didn't make the same mistake this time!

      Well I really don't know because it held the high scores for a while and one day they just disappeared.

      check the game setup menu, you should see the last half dozen carts the system booted in there. If not, battery is probably dead. A shame there isn't memory for more games. Oh and I've noticed those mvs multicarts blank the memory too--at least the 100-in-1 I have does.

      I used to always drink beer and Play Bust A Move on a Neo Geo cab at this bar and grill that is no longer here....Never that good though!

  14. Happy 43rd Birthday Bartolo Colon! A CY young award, 222 wins, and the last active player in baseball to have played for the Expos. Oh, and that sweet home run.

  15. Plugged in a friend's Master System today using my Genesis 1 RGB cable with 3.5mm breakout for stereo. Since the Master System has no headphone port, there was no audio but I had the idea to plug the breakout jack into my phone. Pretty neat to play whatever song we wanted over the game.

    1. GoldLeader

      That is pretty cool.

      Nice thats something worth trying,

    3. Thorsten Günther

      Both the Master System and Mega Drive first revisions have the same AV connector, so one might get mono audio through that connector. The Mega Drive 2 has a new AV connector providing stereo, but lacks a headphone jack.

  16. On a less funny note for the Mets than Bartolo Colon's plate appearances, what has happened to Matt Harvey? He hasn't had a quality start all year and gave up 9 runs (6 earned) to the Nats today in under 3 innings. Right now he's the worst pitcher in the rotation by a decent margin.

    1. KreatorKat

      KreatorKat

      Could Scott Boras have been right last year about his innings? I sure hope not...

  17. ESPN homepage calls the Cleveland Cavaliers the "Chameleon Cavs." I guess the championship that LeBron promised Cleveland is being "delayed to make it even better!"

      Last year 2 of their superstars were inured. No team can win it all with only 1 great player.

  18. The Intellivision RGB mod board is for sale and in stock on RetroRGB.com for anyone interested; I've heard that they sell out pretty quick

  19. After a few weeks of no finds at my local flea market, today I finally broke through with Okami (ps2) and a gold Zelda (NES) cartridge. Can't wait to play Okami!

    1. GoldLeader

      GoldLeader

      My 1st thought was I have that game! Haven't played it yet...So I looked, and I have OKAGE (Not Okami)...I blame the codeine ...

      Congrats BTW!

  20. #TeamLitten! If Pokemon Sun/Moon's cities really look like the ones in the official trailer, then I will be a huge fan of the new region.

      It's Hawaii. They don't even try to disguise it.

      Yep, I totally see what you mean. It's not like they tried to hide France or NYC either ;). But I think the expansive cities and cool looking designs in the trailer are intriguing.

  21. Trying out an entire new "look" to my profile information that appears next to a post for the first time.

  22. Now here's something I never thought I would see: a youtube commercial for Ford featuring Psycho Mantis from Metal Gear Solid for the original Playstation. Just how did they dream that one up?

  23. Anyone else think that Seaquest (Activison) is a super underrated 2600 game?

      Totally a game I'd nearly forgotten about! I think my friend had this then I borrowed it (I had Bermuda Triangle myself)....But that's a guess because I recognize it so well...That box even looks familiar, so I don't think it's a memory from Flashbacks or Anthologies on PS2 etc... yet I don't see it in my collection...

    3. GoldLeader

      GoldLeader

      At least I do have it on a Multicart...I've got one of those multis with dipswitches where setting the switches determines which game will play...

      I consider Private Eye the most underrated Activision title. Seaquest is a fun game. I enjoy challenging the patch scores.

  24. NFL teams passing on Larmey Tunsil will be a huge mistake...

    1. KreatorKat

      Also, Giants with Eli Apple over Vernon Hargraves? I think they did it just for the Eli Manning-Eli Apple-Big Apple (NYC) puns.

      "Larmey Tunsil"? Sounds like a bad throat inflammation.

      Now I hope the Dolphins totally kick ass with him!

  25. The high scores disappeared from one of my MVS games. Kinda annoying since it's never done that before but not really a big deal since I know what I got.

    1. boog

      boog

      MVS high scores are stored on the motherboard memory and it only has enough space for the last 6 (or 8?) games that were played. After all the slots are filled, playing a new game replaces the save slot that hasn't been used in the longest time.
