  1. found a new unopened mad catz 64 controller at a thrift store today, bought out of novelty, probably going to stay new and unused

  2. found a chrome dome 2600, first time I've ever seen one, keeping it,

  3. Alright got one of the jag game drives this time, if tomb raider  gets ported to the jag, I'm playing through it, don't care if it runs at 2 fps

  4. picked up a atari flashback 2 today, not amazing or anything, but I still like it.

  5. so I went to gamestop to trade in a bunch of wii games (seriously game stop currently pays way too much for a bunch of nintendo first party wii games) but behind the counter there are copies of final fantasy 8 and resident evil 3, I ask did someone trade it.  the guy said some couldn't get anything and asked them to toss them for him.  He asked if I wanted them and I was like oh yeah I do

      Good save!

  6. the track "que sera sera" from katamari damacy does a wonderful job of calming my infant daughter, when nothing else seems to work though she'll stay calm through lonely rolling star as well , she might cry more after but those 10 minutes are bliss

    1. digdugnate


      Katamari Damacy in general had a really neat soundtrack.  Our kiddos were pretty small when we owned a copy on the PS2; it seemed like they dug the soundtrack.


      It's cool to hear that it helps your kidlet! :)

  7. so a constant low baller messaged me on ebay mad that I blocked them from bidding/sending offers.

    1. joeatari1


      Damn it man!  Why'd you block me!  I really want that Neo Geo AES for $100!  You gotta sell it while you can, nobody else gonna bid on this thing.

      heh, imagine that, an auction site where people bid low or attempt to get a low price. man... ban them all. Only Big Coin rich COLLECTION graded people should exist there!!! [email protected]@k super duper RARE VINTAGE HIGH BALLERS only need press that button!!!   How dare poor peons plead a case or DARE to attempt to haggle and deal    :)    The shear audacity of a person to even consider an item could possibly be less than msrp or asking price more than once!  Maybe just don't set up best offer, or state the price is firm, perhaps setting a reserve or higher starting price... you know, like it's been done on other auction, bid, or sales platforms going back to the classifieds in the newspaper days. Maybe it costs a couple pennies more or some sort of fee to set it up that way, THUS causing a person not willing to pay for that set up to field such atrocities !!!   Did I nail it? Did I get the perfect ranter of the year award?  Armies of Low ballers unite and Make ebay Cheap Again. :mwah ha ha ha ha!!  evil laughter !!!  The MeCA movement lives!! Make eBay Cheap Again!     OK, I think I get the Academy Award now... thank you thank you!  I'd like to thank....

      I hope he wasn't wanting any HOLY GRAIL!s or LAUNCH EDITION!s


      So you can still get messaged if you block a bidder?   That seems odd.



  8. SO I picked up a 360 at the salvation army, tested it, worked, good, but just booted whatever lego game that was in the drive.

    Go to try something else, bam parental lock.  I tried microsoft's reset solution, no dice.  I go in for one final try , randomly mash the buttons with my eyes closed, open them and there it was the parental control settings.  Suffice to say I disabled them all promptly

    also I picked up an hd 4:3 tv from sanyo, kind of neat

  9. I found an addams family cd-i movie in the slip case while looking through a box of stuff, I'll take it as a silly excuse to hook up my cd-i 

    1. Frozone212


      I hope you bought lots of spaghetti


  10. I hate sergio leone's movies, I'll just watch a few minutes I say, then several hours have passed.

  11. a warning light came on on my car, oh it's a good one, 

    low battery for the tire pressure sensor

      Those aren't oil leaks.  It's just marking its territory :-D

      sea foam shouldn't be in there for too long

      it's a game of cleaning 'just enough'

    4. x=usr(1536)


      Re: Sea Foam: one-third of the can in the tank, one-third of the can down the intake, and one-third of the can in the crankcase about 100 miles before doing an oil change.  That's been my usual strategy for years, and it seems to work well.

  12. Picked up a microvision with 4 games yesterday for 13 dollars at a flea market, works too, now I can rock on to the first 4 bars of anchor's away when I start up sea duel

    1. Rogerpoco


      I want to live where you live, and go to the places you go, ten minutes before you get there.


  13. picked up atari corp blackjack, might not be a new game but at least it is a picture label and a hard to find one as well.

  14. picked up a box of ds/gameboy stuff at a garage sale today, most of the cases turned out to be empty (no big deal as it was cheap) but it had zelda minish cap (real not a boot) and zelda oracle of seasons so really nice stuff to add to my collection

    then pokemon black 2 sealed! yeah I'm going to be  selling that, 

    1. jhd


      I have encountered people (and stores!) selling empty game cases before. That is why I always check before I make my purchase. I'm happy that you found at least something worthwhile. 

    2. masschamber


      believe me i always check cases at stores but this was 25 bucks with a ds and minish cap, it was already golden

      but yeah at like the salvation army or a thrift store, always check cases, as a good chunk of the time they are empty

  15. I have a cheepo taiwan cart labeled worm war 1 , turns out it was warm war 1, and not the same game  as the taiwan cooper warm war,

      Your mailbox may be full, I can not PM you...

      all good now, gave it another go, its sea hawk

  16. my nephew is visiting for a a few days, at one point he was covered in atariage stickers, man my daughter loves those things, shame  the glue finally wears out after being applied, peeled and reapplied repeatedly as she's spent like an hour playing with them each day for the past 4 days

    they also like fairy force, but I don't think they actually know (or care) about how to play it.

  17. add a new 2600 game to my collection for the first time in over 6 months, a pretty rare one to, space tunnel ntsc

    1. pacman000


      Bit Corp's vertical scrolling shooter. 


    2. masschamber


      yeah but it says puzzy at the bottom of  the screen, almost as good as a new hat on an old doll.

  18. My order from the store arrived today, Al certainly came through with the extra AA stickers for my daughter.

     now they're are stuck to ever single wall and door in the house


  19. trying to redownload ps3 stuff sure is a hassle, somethings have gotten better on newer hardware

    1. Rick Dangerous

      Rick Dangerous

      How so? I had no trouble finding and redownloading my purchases?

  20. picked up a cheap ps3 slim today, sold as non-working, probably because the disk drive was crammed full of like 5 or 6 disks, oddly enough non of them were for the ps3, but several were for the xbox 360

  21. I think I'm going to watch Rashomon tomorrow if they weather is bad.

    1. Razzie.P


      A fine choice in any weather.

    2. LaserCat


      There is actually an episode of Dick Van Dyke told in the style of Rashomon. Ohhhh Rob...


  22. well, this was a neat score, an intellivision keyboard component parallel interface, a bunch of internal Mattel paper work, a keyboard component microphone and a bunch of keyboard component game manuals

  23. pretty sure  "improve user experience" means increase spying while removing features people like.

    1. BydoEmpire


      Don't forget having the opportunity to re-buy software and hardware you already bought and works fine, but is no longer compatible.

  24. So I'm trying to complete an original transformers skystalker, I'm just missing the right shuttle wing, but they are basically unobtainable, yet the left wing, which is mirrored, but otherwise identical is readily available.  How bizarre. 

    1. ClassicGMR


      And until just now I had never heard of Skystalker. Nice. Learned something new today. :)

    2. IntelliMission


      I suggest you keep on searching, I'm sure there's...


      ...more than meets the eye.



  25. looks like the odyssey 2 is slowly creeping up in price and with it the last vestige of affordable classic gaming

    1. ClassicGMR


      What's wrong with a left nut and a right pinky for an E.T. cartridge?

    2. Frozone212


      I go to the VideoGameCritic for my reviews. the Odyssey has mostly F's and D's with the occasionally rare A title.


      Still, curiosity is a good thing, just don't expect arcade quality

    3. Rogerpoco


      Man-Wife is way too good to me(I got a Conure a couple days ago, she insisted, lol. "For me". Ok, Thanks!), you know I've been putting off that one a couple towns away from me, but I'm trying to work it out now, don't want to miss out, thanks for the heads up!!!


      @Frozone212 - I have/play almost every system, haha, pretty lucky-TOTALLY get what you are saying, but tbh, if I want arcade, I play MAME, haha, etc, etc-I don't play too much modern stuff, but still a good time-range of technology, and I honestly don't compare games, say, side by side on different systems, I just assume/take them all as "different", since I have almost any option to play, and just enjoy it for what it is.

      I swear, not poo-pooing on your sentiment, haha, what I am saying is that I don't mind to adjust to "bad games", squeeze what I can out of them!
