  1. There are 14 SNES cores in Retroarch but no Apple or proper Amiga one. Disappointing :/

      I wouldn't emulate a computer on RA since they don't support keyboards. And yes there are games that require at least one key to press like the space bar..

      How about emulating the CD32?

      GTFO, you're right! I thought for sure I've emulated Apple][ on the Pi, but nope! That must have been someplace else.

      It's ok. You're far too intelligent to ride this "it's only ads" excuse forever. You'll come around one day, I believe in you :P

      I'm just pulling your chain. :-)

       

      I'm willing to give up some privacy in exchange for useful things from Google but I detest ads.

       

      I've recently stopped my YouTube Premium subscription so I'll likely see a lot more ads, unless I just stop looking at amateur videos. The latter is more likely.

  5. So the Internet is oohing and aahing over the DCHDMI but TO ME it's just another proof why the pursuit of extreme sharpness in old games is misguided.

  6. Zero-gameplay "reveal" trailers are a joke.

      I thought it was a rule anymore...For every video game commercial you are Not allowed to show gameplay. In the same way, if you sell a game on ebay, you can't show the back of the box or any screenshot, only the front... or the cart...Frustrating world sometimes haha

      [email protected] "sent it out to die". Because EA hates money :)If it was CD Projekt, it'd be "they were unlucky to compete with other games and the market was saturated "

    3. Flojomojo

      Flojomojo

      For some reason, the only Star Wars games that appeal to me are the Lego games. The EA Battlefront game is too heavy, serious and overproduced, and the mobile Galaxy of Heroes character collector game is shallow and grindy.

       

      I wish we could have more KOTOR type RPG stuff. Episodic would be fine. Use the old engine if you must.

       

      Or just an X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter online arena type thing.

      Wish Lucasfilm would make a "Maniac Mansion"-type game with "Wars."

       

      I did enjoy "Apprentice of the Force" for Game Boy Advance.

      Amazing! I really look forward to playing this. I loved Nightmare and actually bought 2 of the expansion games for it back in the day. I bought the witch and zombie. The 4th one was never sold in stores in my area.

      My ex-wife and I spent many, many hours playing Nightmare. I dont know how the game would hold up today but those memories are awesome. :)

      I dunno man, I don't think kids are that oblivious as to how a game console works. But then again...

      The old Atari is kinda dumb, too. Who made RESET into the Start Game switch? Where's the PAUSE button? Why wasn't my high score saved?

  11. TIL: Daria from Beavis & Butthead got her own spin off, which ran for 5 seasons+TV specials. Wow.

    1. slab0meat

      TIL what TIL meant when I looked it up. Daria, I knew about, and that Judge had no involvement. Never cared for Daria.

      Her reactions to B&B were hilarious. Probably what made her so popular since she didn't like stupid, there is a lot of stupid around us, and for that many could relate.

  12. "Hail, Nobel One!" Can you guess where is this typo from?

    1. save2600

      Ultima for Apple manual. Sure, it should be Noble One. Interestingly, it may be a bootleg manual coz other editions don't have this.

  13. Web 3.0 sucks. Like, GOG.com's facepalm worthy hover-to-youtube-preview thingy, instead of some simple pic/text.

      And the Atari VCS came out 2 years before I started school. Time flies when you're having fun. Years are flying by. Carpe diem.

      I know!! Crazy. The PS3/360 gen still seems cutting edge to me. At least the console gens seem to be getting longer not shorter due to R&D and marketing costs

      We should do this kind of thing with console releases.

       

      Example: the same amount of time has passed since the launch of the Xbox 360 as the interval between the Super Nintendo and the Xb360.

  15. Is this week marked "90s icons" in Death's clendar? WTF.

      Meh... I bought the Resident Evil remake along RE 0 and RE 4 on both the GameCube and the Wii, I ain't buying 'em again.

       

      ...At least not until around Halloween XD

    4. Flojomojo

      Flojomojo

      It was the same with Skyrim, Doom, LA Noire, Diablo3. The prices will come down with time, and there are always good sales. I wouldn't ever pay full price for a Capcom game, they always seem to drop by half in a few months.

      There is more than zero veiws. It's a glitch in the forum software. As soon as a reply is added the real view count is posted.

      Sorry friend, nobody needed to know about Culkin's role in ToeJam and Earl. But if Sega Genesis and Nintendo Switch keep him away from drugs, more power to him.

      Confirming Shawn's observations. I replied in one of those threads and now it shows 35 views.

       

      Just keep on posting smart things, youxia, don't worry about the views or the likes.

      It's necessary for Samsung to sell phones in an increasingly glutted market, apparently.

    3. youxia

      Yeah, was just poking fun at that new Sony handset. As NP says it takes a big size to even notice a difference from 1080p. Nevermind that for that cost you could probably get a decent TV...

    4. DZ-Jay

      DZ-Jay

      64K should be enough for everybody.

  19. "ARCHON was inspired by developer Jon Freeman's participation as a pawn in a real-life chess match, where people role-played chess pieces in costume and faced-off in mock duels or real fencing battles."

      OMG, that means is the year my kid, born in the year of the Golden Pig, turns 12 this year.

       

      2019 is just a plain old Year of the Pig.

       

      Oink oink!

      or as they say in France,

      Groin groin!

      My friends have a band called YOTP (Year of the Pig)...At one point, every member of their band had been born in 1971.
