  1. Do you think SEGA will ever make a good modern sonic game right now.

    1. zylon


      Last thing they did that I liked was the XBL Sonic 4. :)

    2. ClassicGMR


      I'm going to get roasted for my opinion here but...


      Did they EVER make a good Sonic game to begin with? =/

    3. BassGuitari


      Why start now?

  2. How many of you got an atari 2600 when you were eleven, it was your first cosole that wasn't edutaiment and you were born in the 2000's?

    1. GoldLeader


      I got PONG as a present before Atari too!

    2. save2600


      Just wasn't known as "edutainment" then. Didn't hear that phrase until the 90's probably. Got a Radio Shack pong unit called TV Scoreboard (came with a light gun even) the Christmas before I "finally" got an Atari 2600.

      technically first video games played at home were on a Sol Terminal 20. I'm a rare breed too. :D

  3. when I asked "What's your highest score on asteroids?" I meant the vcs version (I forgot about the other platforms :P).

    1. digdugnate


      hehe for the 'default' vcs game, it's a rollover :) i got bored i think another 30k in.

    2. Eltigro


      Game one I think I've rolled the score over three or four times before I just stopped... rarely getting below 7 ships in reserve. Not bragging, it's just as is said above, game 1 is a cakewalk compared to other versions. There was an Asteroids week on the 2600 High Score Club one week...

  4. What's your highest score on asteroids? Mine is 100,609 (no that is not a misprint)

  5. My toys r us is 4 buildings down from a bowling alley. Good for that last minute birthday gift (that has never happened to me i'm just giving a random example). Across the street from the book store (fun day for a kid).
  6. 1: My sister would be so upset if the toy r us near us closed, she hasn't seen the american girl section yet and would be crushed if she couldn't see it at all. 2: What about that tv show "The Toybox", whats thier next retailer going to be, Walmart?
  7. how many of you played sonic mania and got bored after a couple of play throughs, and thus resorted to glitches and cheats for entertianment?

  8. I'm trying to find a copy of visual basic 6.0 on ebay but can't find any under 100

  9. This software is still in development but has moved to visual basic.
  10. Just got 6 new 2600 games from a used book store. Firefighter, space jockey, sky jinks, atlantis, frogger, and cosmic ark..

    1. ColecoGamer


      I need to visit used book stores!

    2. Trip2018


      Not "new" new but new to me.

    3. Trip2018


      Half price books has a ton of them for around $0.99 (Unless tagged otherwise) and its where I get most of my collection.

  11. How I (and probably most of us) feel in the morning... https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/190446375/

    1. GoldLeader


      Sometimes ... yeah...sometimes...Worse!

  12. I say "apple" like LUH-PLUH

  13. I don't know is I'm in the right forum but... I was installing the SMPS Player mod for Sonic & knucles collections by the instructions (without the HQ mod) but all seems quiet but the sfx (when I switch back the .dlls it seems to play fine, so the sound is on). P.S. I would ask on "sonic retro" but its pointless to make a forum account just to ask one question (I've done it before and now I'm bocked out of the raspberry pi forums because I forgot my username and password).
  14. How would i mod my copy of sonic 3 & knuckles collection?

    1. zetastrike


      That was one of my favorite PC games as a kid. I loved the MIDI soundtracks.

    2. Dreamcast Gamer

      Dreamcast Gamer

      zetastrike, same! I still have mine so maybe later today I'll find those MIDIs and play them through the SGM soundfont.

  15. I really like orange juice.

    1. Trip2018


      I don't really like orange juice as much as I said. I give me a terrible stomach ache.

    2. save2600


      Ever try grapefruit juice? Yuck

    3. Trip2018


      I love grapefruit juice. However it still gives me a terrible stomach ache.

  16. Please don't stop this. It's getting good.
  17. Trying to fix a wind up toy that came with a make your own paper wind up robot almost 8 years ago. It came with five of these wind up bases. A week later all the destroyed bots ended geting thrown away never to be remembered again. However the bases stayed. One stoped winding up like five years ago but just started fixing it today. It turns out the coil was just loose.

  18. considering making a 2600 pillow

    1. jaybird3rd


      Let's not give them any more harebrained ideas. They'll make it into the SpeakerPillow™©®.

    2. Jess Ragan

      Hopefully not a dakimakura.

    3. Eltigro


      Pretty sure I've seen a wedge shaped foam pillow that would be easy to turn into a 2600jr.

  19. Mario piant style is a great idea, but if I did try somthing like that I would probably have to switch from just basic to something better (Not java).
  20. Have you tried a 64k rom like zippy the porkupine. Sometimes 64k roms can be a real pain.
  21. I want to get steam running on my old windows xp computer so I can download anarchy arcade but it crashes at startup. :(

    1. wongojack


      I don't think Steam is supported on XP anymore due to the version of the browsers that are on there. It doesn't work on my XP machine either.

    2. Trip2018


      read the system reqirements at the bottom of this page http://store.steampowered.com/about/ . I just found out that my pc is 99mhz short in speed and 8mb short in ram.

  22. Ok then, this is now a game genie forum. And I know just what to call it, the rom booster.
