  1. Wondering how much the SpaceX 'zero-g dinosaur' would go for on ebay if it was listed

    1. Albert
    2. Magmavision2000


      $420.69 to be specific.

  2. Peanut Butter & Jelly....i'm a Peanut Butter & Jelly kind of guy, Peanut Butter & Jelly on RYE........

    1. atari2600land


      I want a turkey sandwich on rye bread and and AND, I don't want any zombie turkeys, I don't want to turn into a turkey myself, or any other weird surprises. You got it?

    2. chuckwalla


      fresh turkey only, not that processed crap

  3. Playing Atari 8-bit Star Raiders on the PC from gamesnostalgia.com

  4. Good news, Trump fast tracks the old anti-Malaria drug chloroquine to treat Coronvirus. The panic can start subsiding...go play a game

    1. Keatah


      SpaceInvaders sound - trump trump trump trump trump trump trump trump trump...

      Yay! Live medical experiments! The WHO hasn't confirmed that it's effective against Covid-19 and there have been some rather mixed signals from the research establishment. Some experts have even declared it "fake news". Still, if people want to try it ... 🤷‍♂️

      Tonic Water has Quinine in it.  Gin and Tonic, don't mind if I do!

      Nice. Is it as squeaky as the previous ones? 

    4. chuckwalla


      I don't have any other handheld to compare it against but the speakers are tiny and basically 'tinny" sounding as you would expect.

      But it does play the early Sega console games very well.

  6. Videogame Vaporware has always made my mild Tourette's Syndrome flare up wildly since my teenage years.

  7. Just discovered the Sega Genesis Sonic 1 with Spin Dash hack and I love it.


    1. SmittyB


      Sonic Jam on the Saturn rather nicely has the option for a spin-dash in Sonic 1 as well because it's a port rather than emulation, and as far as I can tell they built the Sonic 2 part first and then modified it for Sonic 1.

  8. I don't always use Internet Explorer... but when I do, it's to download a different browser.

    1. ls650


      It's funny cuz it's true!

    2. jd_1138


      I don't always use Chrome browser, but when I do it's, oh, like 99.99999999% of the time.  I guess MS Edge wasn't too bad, and they're changing it over to being based on Chromium open source browser.

    3. Tickled_Pink


      Pffft! Dinosaur! I stopped using IE as soon as Microsoft dropped it from Windows 10. Been using Edge ever since ... for downloading other browsers. Get with the times.

  9. Sega CD's being dumped on ebay like no tomorrow in anticipation of the Mega SD....

    1. Flojomojo


      Be sure to dump them on your hard drive, too!

  10. Trouble in Vaporware-land, Castlemania says the 'upcoming' Sega-Retrobit Nomad may not be a 'reality' until Fall 2020.

      * The Genesis

    3. chuckwalla


      That would be my dream system. I wouldn't doubt that someday we'll have it too.

      ain't that right? would be awesome

  11. Hoping for a Genesis version of the SNES FC 16 Go or Supaboy handhelds that I love using so much.

    1. DragonGrafx-16


      Well, there's the new Nomad if that thing is actually going to be sold.

    2. Skippy B. Coyote

      Skippy B. Coyote

      I'm sure hoping for one too! Retro-Bit is working on a a remake of the Sega Nomad, but who knows if it'll ever actually come to market.

  12. Video Game Critic's review of Philips CD-i console durability: most older cd players are susceptilble to read problems after heavy use, but fortunately, CD-i systems are not prone to heavy use.

      Every Apple Pippin in existence is probably still in showroom condition.

      Hell, It's barely prone to light use!

  13. Looks like the Youtube video converters are no longer functional - it's like freaking hell freezing over.

    1. adam242


      Which one do you use? I like https://ytmp3.cc/ and it seems just fine.

    2. chuckwalla


      Thanks, i'll check it out. Was using https://www.onlinevideoconverter.com/youtube-converter and https://www.clipconverter.cc/ - getting virus alerts on both. I'm using Norton 360 anti-virus.

      Maybe it's The Eagles

      I offered 4.50. It was auto-declined.

    3. GoldLeader


      I'm offering 35 cents...

    4. GoldLeader


      oh...Minimum offer is 99 cents so I upped the ante to $1.35. Hope I don't win!

      What does 43 year old pie crust taste like? Marie Callender's.

    2. DZ-Jay


      Sounds like an episode of Friends. LOL!

  15. Steve Hanawa, creator of Sega's Turbo arcade game said that the game was so difficult to design that he was hospitalized for a month following its completion due to stress, exhaustion and a collapsed lung – now that’s commitment!

      Thank You Steve! I loved that game as a kid! Played the heck out of the home version for the ColecoVision too!

    3. retrorandy


      In fact I just played the arcade version again (after probably a good 30 years) a few months back at Classic Gaming Expo. GREAT game!!! :)

      Someone at Rockstar Games just said, "Wow, making video games was so much easier back then."

  16. There's nothing like the nostalgic smell of late 1970's Hong Kong video game plastic....

    1. DZ-Jay


      Oh sure ... I could name plenty of things that smell just as stale. :P

  17. Finally decided to dig up my 6-switch Atari 2600 with Compro Videoplexer - was a little perplexed at setting it up but got it right the 2nd time around - how technology has changed...

    1. RockyRaccoon


      I don't understand how people have trouble connecting old systems to new TVs, unless the system is using a non-standard System-to-TV plug that isn't the RCA-style RF jack. You connect the jack into one of these: https://atariage.com/store/index.php?l=product_detail&p=42 and then you just turn the TV to channel 3. This still works on 'modern' TVs.


      AS for the video plexer, isn't it just 'plug cart cable into cartridge slot, power videoplexer, and press but...

    2. RockyRaccoon


      ....and press the button on the cart you loaded?

    3. chuckwalla


      I always forget that the Videoplexer plugs into the Atari console via cartridge slot and power supply connector and the 2600 power supply plugs into the Videoplexer. Cool accessory item.

  18. Interesting new wireless controller for the Genesis and SMS at Krikzz https://krikzz.com/store/home/52-master-everdrive.html

      Just Genesis or can this crazy thing be used as a Bluetooth controller as well?

    4. GoldenWheels


      Future clearance/sale item as I see it. This is a bad answer to a question almost no one asks.

  19. With a market saturated in SNES consoles, here's an SNES Mini clone with a bunch of built-in games -https://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-Super-Nintendo-Entertainment-System-SNES-third-party-compatible-console-AP64/222734375600?hash=item33dc00dab0:g:XOAAAOSwhrRajL7y

      I actually don't mean to harsh on it BTW, I'm kind of a sucker for things like this,...Lacking S-Video though sucks...Even my Retro Duo has that!

    3. carlsson


      I wish those clone manufacturers in China could come up with something new, fill a hole on the market. Obviously I'm not expecting proper licensing of stuff, just that a $70 system that does something nobody else does in commercial form, would be far more interesting than yet another low-end SNES clone.

      If I had that box it would be listed immediately

    3. GoldLeader


      I just looked...Hmmm I don't think I have the box for mine. *sigh* haha...

    4. GoldLeader


      I wonder if some of those people are still thinking it's more than just the box. If I were that seller I would have put "No Console, Just The Box" just to be sure.

  20. Playing the Rickster on Spatterhouse 2

  21. And in the corner to my right.....Afa...Sika..........the WILD SAMOANS!!!!!!
