  1. Well, I did it. I beat Sonic 2. Fine, I played on my Switch and used savestates, but whatever. Maybe I'll try to beat it on my actual Genesis sometime later.

     

    Meanwhile, I've started Sonic Mania. Really digging the remixed tunes.

    And the storage unit taketh away: my entire Intellivision collection is AWOL. I didn’t have anything worth more than $15 except the system, but that’s still a bummer. I wonder what I did with it?

      repairing odyssey 2 controllers is easy, just wire it up to a 2600 stick, or build something custom , or wire up a male db-9 and make it support detachable controllers

  22. my last place to find old game stuff has decided to crank the prices up to 11, they had a few common atari games in box for 50 dollars each, still checked incase of like sears superman or cannon man but well probably won't be finding anything cool locally much anymore.

    1. masschamber

      masschamber

      yeah now stuff is going to sit there for months, a local goodwill actually did that and their sales cratered and they went out of business.

  24. When I was a kid, we were taught Jupiter had 13 moons. Now I just learned from watching season 2 of The Expanse that it has 79 moons. Checking a Wikipedia article, it has closer to 600 natural satellites ranging in diameter from 5300 km for Ganymede to a few meters for most. It is basically surrounded by its own asteroid belt.
