  1. Sorry if I'm missing it, but you happen to have a price in mind? I don't really need it, but I'm a sucker for pretty screenshots, and it sure looks pretty enough to make me want it
  2. Hidetaka Miyazak I don't think I've ever really given it much thought before, but now that I have, I think that's the only name that would immediately bump a game to a "launch day" purchase without knowing anything more about it.
  3. I forgot about this game. May be a good time to pick it back up. I got it at launch, played for a few hours but sadly, it just bored me to tears so I moved on to something else. I did promise myself I'd give it another shot, though, hoping it clicks.
  4. A few essentials (IMO) that are missing from your list -- Boom Blox Boom Blox Bash Party Little King's Story Zack & Wiki Trauma Center (both games) Trauma Team maybe just me, but Resident Evil 4 on Wii is the best version of that game, thanks to the accuracy of the WiiMote, so I'd add that in there For family co-op, if you're playing with kids or people who don't normally play video games -- Kirby: Epic Yarn and Kirby: Return to Dreamland
  5. Guess it’s time to give Sonic another chance. Confuses me, though. I’m never sure if I’m supposed to go fast, or take my time, explore, and collect the rings.

      Like they say.. you play it fully, you'll figure it out. Put it this way, if you make it to the Labyrinth Zone you won't be going very fast since it's under water. :)

      Funny thing is, I played (and finished) the original at some point in the 90s. I just remember not liking it much, and never knowing if I should blaze through or explore. Somehow though, I’ve ended up with pretty much all of them over the years, including Sonic Mania on Switch, so time to revisit, I suppose.

  6. Just finished Phantasy Star (Sega Ages) on the Switch. I finished it a couple of times in the 80's during the Genesis era thanks to the Power Base Convertor and figured it's a good time to revisit that series.
  7. Seems like it has a few unlockables in there. I finished Course A and it unlocked "Steering Wheel Tune-Up" whatever that is. I'm not familiar with the original arcade version (which I think this emulates) but doesn't seem like the original would've had unlockables like that. One slight bummer that may have a "disable" option -- when I finished the course, the game was determined to upload my score to their leaderboards or something. No worries, usually, but since I wasn't near internet, to the best of my knowledge, I had to wait it to finish trying to connect and click through a few windows/errors to get past it.
  8. For 10 thousand bucks, you'd think they'd at least get those monitors in alignment. Ewww... Check it out here Still... I wanna play Enduro on it.
  9. Watched all of She-Ra (2018) with my daughter over the weekend. I expected a bit of “meh,” but thought it was great!

      I don't know where or how, but I caught an episode of She-Ra last year (must've been travelling for work and saw it at a hotel) and I really liked it.

  10. That's the wrong gadget. The one that was announced for NES isn't available yet.
  11. Not sure what's up with the Vive setup, but the Zapper I referenced during the original post will, unless I'm completely misunderstanding, plug into a NES system and let you play Duck Hunt (and potentially others, but details are a bit short) on newer HD TVs. This, if it works properly, seems pretty sweet to me, whether it's something I "need" or not. A bummer, though -- seems like it might not work with 3rd part systems, so that might kill hopes of using it on AVS or NT. Still, interesting to see if it works out. Decent look/mockup of it
  12. I'm not familiar with "My Arcade," but this has my interest. A portable NES that uses actual NES and Famicom carts. Article from Gizmodo Retro Champ
  13. This could be neat NES Light Gun on HDTV
  14. Merry New Year! Ah HAHAHAHAHA!!!!

  15. My Playstation Classic has gotten more use than any of my “mini consoles.” I’ve been using it to hold down the corner of the Christmas paper to help with wrapping presents.

  17. Apparently, my reading comprehension goes straight to Hades when I try to follow the “FPGA Based Videogame System” thread.

      Think that's bad. The collective intelligence of AA goes to hell on the taco thread.

       

      Last year it was a garbage dump. This month it's a landfill.

      I love the taco thread! lot of good laughs there...Nutari brought it on themselves, being sue-happy, lying, impersonating "Atari", calling that abomination a VCS...

  18. Dear Gamestop, how are you supposed to say in business if your website doesn't let any orders process properly and the guy from India calling himself "Steve" has no idea what "Oops... undefined order error" means?

    1. GoldLeader

      GoldLeader

      ...And GS said, "Our computer says we have it, But we Don't...So we can't order it for you. Aren't you online?" Yes, So I bought it and the next decade worth of stuff online...

    2. GoldLeader

      GoldLeader

      BTW, At that point, KMart, WalMart and Target employees were also asking me if I was online, very much implying that I should simply buy it there and let them get back to their Death of Retail thing they were doing.

      I wrote a letter describing the experience and it got published in PSM (PlayStation Magazine)...The one with Metal Gear 4 on the cover. :)

  19. I have a Pac-Man Collection cart and need to know if it's the POKEY version. Is there any way I can tell this without booting it up? Not at home currently and no 7800 around to see if there's something on the title screen, but I can't see any indicator on the label. I checked my order history on AA Store, but it's coming back blank. If there's nothing on the cart to let me know, will there be indicator once I'm able to boot it up, other than "just listen and see?" Thanks for any help!
  20. RIP Customer Service. Not sure when you died, but it's clear that you're no longer with us.

      I'd be far happier if I knew I'd be able to make rent AND be able to eat, AND have disposable income with which to better my life, these are high school and college students who are eating nothing but cup noodles everyday because they can't pay rent and tuition as well as buy groceries. These guys can't afford to live.

      Part of the issue is seeing CS as a "cost center" to be squeezed. I feel like obvious outsourcing to India for call centers seems to be out of fashion -- or maybe they're just hidden behind chat windows nowadays?

      @DoctorSpuds: It's not a matter of being happy, it's about doing your *#[email protected] job!

       

      If I'm upset at work, I am not allowed to just blow my tasks, do them wrong or spitefully. If I did, I'd get fired.

  21. If no one reaches out with interest in installing this, Game-Tech has a list of recommended kit installers on their site with contact info. Good luck! That mod looks pretty sweet.
  22. Dealership where I bought my truck -- Before buying: at least 2 calls per day. After buying: 0 calls in 4 days, even though a callback was promised.

      Sounds like it's ran by arseholes. What kind of truck? I'd change out the factory oil at 2k and put in a quality filter and Mobil 1 synthetic.

  23. FYI, though, in case you didn't already know. If you kill him, he doesn't come back. This goes for all NPCs as far as I remember. I've seen many, many people over the years claiming that the game is "broken," and their save is "ruined" by this sort of thing. Kill 'em if you wanna, but know they don't come back until the next playthrough.
  24. Nissan Frontier All Black Midnight Edition, or Chevy Colorado LT? I like both equally for different (and quite opposite) reasons, so having a hard time making the choice.

      4.0 V6 with 5 speed transmission in the Nissan, and 3.6 V6 with 8 speed transmission in the Chevy.
