  1. stepped on a ic today, pins up, if you think a lego is bad, wooo, I had to pry that thing out

    1. bluejay


      It probably is better than stepping on a pin header.(yep, that's happened before; it hurt)

    2. Prosystemsearch


      How long did it take to pry out?

    3. CPUWIZ


      I've done that, sucks.

  2. left a box of games I picked up from spring clean up a few days ago in the car port, took it out today, got a few nice cib 2600 games including a gatefold combat

      spring clean ups are always goldmines

  3. replaced the thermal paste on my ps4 with the 10 dollar stuff, the system is now as quiet as when it was new again.

      Mine had a bad motivator!  That's the last time I buy from those Jawas...

  4. The only ultra-rare 2600 game I wish was more common is Mangia, not because it is a good game, but because it is such an incredibly bizarre game

    1. save2600


      Sneak 'n Peak for the win that way!  :P

  5. I've got like a dozen nice working cx40s I need to sell, I'm thinking 7 dollars each plus shipping

  6. So my wife had a friend over so I could help him with his homework (2nd grader and he had like 100 assignments)  but after an hour he couldn't work anymore so my wife said go play with my daughter.  Being an 8 year old boy, he didn't look happy.  Then my daughter ran up to him carrying an Optimus Prime and asking "Do you want to play with Transformers?"  never seen  a more relieved expression.

  7. Disappointed in Astroblaster, but Astrofighter more than made up for it... or is it the other way around.. or I am I confusing one astro- game with another...why don't games have astro in the titles so much anymore?

    1. Theallknowingsause


      kinda like the 80's strange obsession with the word "Tron" and how many games and or franchises used "Tron" in the name

    2. GoldLeader


      I loved Astro Blaster in the arcade and the homebrew...Pretty sure I need Astro Fighter...Maybe I should pick up Astro Invader while I'm at it? heh

  8. I'm about to play some atari today.  Juno first it is 

  9. My Daughter(3) logged into my final meeting of the day while I was in the bathroom, she knows clicking green buttons on screen connects to things, she told everyone  I was in the bathroom, then proceeded to started them other funny things like to read chickachicka boom boom in english class.  Suffice to say she made everyone's day.

  10. Nintendo 64 games seem to have filtered themselves into 3 categories, expensive, terrible, and wrestling games.  And expensive doesn't mean good either.

    1. Magmavision2000


      Does the N64 have that WCW game that has a skeleton, Santa Claus, and an Anime Girl as unlockable characters?

    2. GoldenWheels


      Didn't seem like any of your categorizations were meant to be nice! XD

    3. GoldLeader


      I see how ya meant it now....Still,  I'm just not a fan of wrestling games...

  11.  my daughter is making flowers out of hanafuda cards and atariage stickers.

    1. masschamber


      If you could throw in a few extras with my next order that would delight my daughter,

    2. Albert


      I would be glad to do that, just please make a note at the end of your order so I don't forget.  :)

  12. Man, the package of spicey ramen noodles I had tonight for dinner was missing the dried vegetables and meat packet, still not bad without them and I do add my own ingredients in, but they are nice to add.

    In the end the noodles still made the foundation of a nice dinner. 

    1. Cobra Kai

      Cobra Kai

      The only ones I really  like anymore are the Maruchan Yakisoba noodle bowls, but they are more scarce than toilet paper these days.

  13. Deadly premonition is ugly, runs poorly, has a stupid story and questionable gameplay, but boy is it charming and I am enjoying.

    1. RARusk


      DP is one of the great cult games out there and is often called Twin Peaks: The Video Game. Even wrote a GFAQs guide for it. Either you get it or you don't and it looks like you do. BTW, what platform (PS3, X360, PC, Switch).

    2. SlidellMan


      It's inspired lunacy as the Rage-a-holic said.

  14. finally thought I cleared out all of my spare 2600 games, then what do I find, 2 medium boxes full of games, so I have about another 150 or so to clear out again.


    1. Theallknowingsause


      I hope one day I'll have 2 spare boxes of random Atari 2600 games that I can forget about, that's the life I want to live in.

  15. an atari corp class,  I opened a new sealed copy of realsports baseball for the 7800 and what was inside? why a 2600 cart.  

    Quality control at atari corp was glorious.

    1. jaybird3rd


      Wow.  The wrong game cartridge in the wrong box, with the wrong board in the cartridge!  It's a turducken of failure!

    2. save2600


      Solaris? You struck bonanza!  lol

    3. masschamber


      Makes you wonder how all those carts ended up in Venezuala, 

      Bob:Hey Steve, where is this shipment going?

      Steve (not listing, talking to wife on phone)  : I'm thinking we should visit Venezuala next winter.

      Bob: Venezuala it is, Got an address?

      Steve (after wife asked where he wants to go for dinner): Anywhere is fine.

      Bob:Okay, I'll just leave that blank then.  (walks away)

      Steven: Hey, Bob did you say something? (no response) Eh, doesn't matter.

  16. My daughter loves the atari age stickers al packs in with every homebrew purchase.


  17. Which tank themed pun title do you prefer, 

    tanks but no tanks

    or tanks a lot?

    1. zetastrike


      So long and tanks for all the fish

    2. GoldLeader


      ^When those fish get armored vehicles they drive underwater...Well, Those'll be Fish Tanks!

    3. masschamber


      Fish tanks, now that is a good idea for a game.

  18. replaced the thermal grease on my ps4, finally pretty quite again.

    1. CPUWIZ


      Shame it isn't quiet again.

    2. CrazyChris


      Your taking your life in your own hands when applying thermal grease. ;)

  19. completely disassembled my ps4 then cleaned out all of the dust, far far quieter.

  20. SO I was going through my box of odd ball 3rd party controllers and I found one called the faster blaster, I could not blaster faster with with it.

  21. If anyone needs a vic 20 rf unit, I have 2 available for 15 shipped each. or both for 25

  22. well this is kind of funny, if I name folder risedragon at the location f:\scdr it consistently crashes my computer, regardless of device I create it in.  nothing on the drive is corrupted, no other problems, just a crash.

    1. atari2600land


      Could it be because "risedragon" is more than 8 letters and "rdragon" isn't?

    2. jd_1138


      It's a 2-bit computer in this day and age of 32 and 64 bit.  Ha.

    3. Albert


      Did you forget to enter 4, 8, 15, 16, 23 and 42?

  23. I've found Resident evil resistance is not a bad game, though I do wonder, did they use material from it for nemesis or nemesis material for it (not that either is brimming with content), but they make no effort to balance the match making, high level survivors, low level mastermind, survivors will just plow through, low level survivors, high level mastermind, a wall of monsters the survivors have no hope of penetrating. 

  24. Probably the second nicest thing about working from home (first being the amount of time I can spend with my daughter) has been clearning out my extras.  Right now I'm trying to decide what to clear out next, extra timex sinclair stuff (no carts) and remaining extra coleco stuff, or the extra nintendo 64 stuff.  Anyone interested in a timex sinclair 2068?

    1. masschamber


      I have to work from home, even if I wanted to do my planning and lessons from school, it's locked 4 days a week or something and appointments to come in need to be scheduled.

    2. BydoEmpire


      I don't have any more time with my son than I did before (WFH full time), but it is really nice to see him intermittently throughout the day!  I'm really enjoying working from home.  I'm thankful I'm able to do it, and it's going great so far.  Very focused and productive!

      Working from home for months; basement and collection are fully organized; love it!  And yes the extra time NOT commuting to be with family is very nice.


      Tell me what you have for N64!

  25. went to pre-order an inellivision amico today, and  sold out!

    1. save2600


      He who hesitates...




    2. masschamber


      yep, I should have acted back when I first decided I wanted one.

    3. ls650


      I believe I've read that there may be one more pre-order run.   If you're interested, sign-up on their mailing list and you'll get notified right away.
