  1. I dipped my feet into html a few hours ago. This is the first non BASIC language I've used. My_first_programAA.html


    1. carlsson


      Ah, the classic "HTML programming". :D


      Credits for trying to learn HTML markup from scratch though, instead of resorting to some WYSIWYG editor or content management system.

    2. Atarian7


      I knew enough HTML to list items on eBay, but that was years ago.


  2. I played Heritage For The Future for the first time. It's certainly not bad, but I think you need to be a fan of the anime in order to really enjoy it.

    1. desiv


      So you're saying everyone will like it then?  ;-)

  3. My Famicom collection is growing at an exponential rate, once my most recent 3 games get delivered, I'll probably make one of those collection threads.

    1. masschamber


      I like famicom carts, so many colors.

    2. GoldLeader


      I really enjoyed collecting for Famicom too!  At least once I got the tile games, pachinko games, and baseball games taken out of the mix so I could see if I got anything good.  


      (Every lot of Famicom games will have waaaayyy too many of those....)

  4. I used the Famicom 3D goggles for the first time today. The fact that it actually kinda worked is impressive.

    1. thanatos


      I didn't even know the Famicom had that.   The Master System 3D glasses worked pretty well, so I'm not surprised Nintendo's worked fine.

    2. haunted_ipa_


      what games does it support?

    3. Magmavision2000


      Only 7 games are compatible and I have 2 of them (3D Hot Rally and Rad Racer).

  5. Mickey Rooney would've been 100 years old today.

  6. Shaolin Vs. Wutang is the best fighting game since Kasumi Ninja.

    1. Joe C.

      Wu-Tang Clan ain't nothin' to fu*k with.

  7. Friendly reminder: You have 10 days left if you want to download Jump Rope Challenge on the eshop.

  8. Even though I like 3D All-Stars, they could've done so much better.

    1. SlidellMan


      Yeah, like including all the cut content from SM64 and Sunshine.

  9. The YouTube app seems to get worse every update.

      You're still using YouTube? All the cool kids use BitChute these days.

      ios or android? on android it's getting better

    3. Prosystemsearch


      Yeah, looks that way, especially with a damn hypocritical and greedy recent monetization rule changes from late 2019-early 2020. My top 3 candidates for a Youtube alternative are

      3. Storyfire.com

      2. Vlare.tv

      1. Bitchute.com

  10. I'm trying to read the script for the Seinfeld pilot (don't ask), and the website looks like it was last updated like 12 years ago. Do people not seek out Seinfeld scripts online for recreational reading?

      I have only 2 scripts,... bought for recreational reading.  One was for M*A*S*H,  an unshot episode if memory serves...And one for Land of the Lost (1974 I think)...

    3. AAA177


      I wish studios would offer scripts for digital sale (and even print-on-demand) as a regular course of business. One of the best I've read is "Creepshow" by Stephen King, mainly because of the writing style employed on it (can't get away with that nowadays with Hollywood gate-keeper readers). 


      You've got me interested, though (if I'm thinking of the correct episode - not sure if this was the first episode or if the actual pilot came later in the first season, not really an expert on the program - I believe it was pretty good). What is the site? And yeah, for some reason, all those sites are stuck in the past. 

    4. Magmavision2000


      I'm not sure if it's the "Pilot" Pilot, but they say the episode was released in 1989 so I'm positive its the real Pilot.


      Here's the site where the script (or transcript, it doesn't look like a script to me, maybe it was reformatted?) is: https://www.seinfeldscripts.com/TheSeinfeldChronicles.htm

  11. I'm gonna say it, I hate Super Mario Kart. The handling is outrageous, the hit detection is awful, and it's just a chore to play. Whoever gave it a 9/10 on IGN needs to be interrogated by the U.N. it's a 4/10 at best. I know most people say Super Circuit is the worst one, but it at least has Wario.

      @bluejay Yay, someone who is equally as lazy as me! I'm not alone here anymore~

      But seriously, I'll have to melt the tabs off with the soldering iron because they are literally ON the insides of the case.

      SFC games won't directly work in a PAL SNES. Or vice versa.  Need to do a region mod or get a universal adapter. Plat SFC games through PAL will also mean the game will run 17% slower and have black borders at the top and bottom of the screen. 

  12. This is both a comedy and an existential crisis.

      Nah, I'm nearing 15, I just put "2000" in my name to replicate the trend of things having "2000" in the title at the turn of the century. I got into classic games through YouTube, as my mother never really played games (She had an Atari 2600 and a Sega Master System, but they didn't get much play). 


      The original post was a reference to a stream of A.I. Dungeon I was watching and I said those words to myself during a part where the streamer was stuck in a death loop. But it can also be a reference to the world right now.


    3. doctorclu


      Could, but I like how it is about A.I. Dungeon.   Which stream were you watching?


    4. Magmavision2000



      Story starts at 1:10:37


      In the story, he died and went to the afterlife, but was reincarnated and then died again shortly after. And after I think three deaths, he starts arguing with the A.I.


      It was hilarious.

  13. I already know the answer, but how do you guys feel about Mario 3D Allstars being a limited release?

    1. Razzie.P


      It serves little more than a huge favor to the scalpers of the world.

  14. Man, I love the Sega Saturn! It's a shame that it wasn't super successful internationally.

  15. Just found out John Witherspoon had a cooking channel on YouTube. It seems like something he and his family did together.

  16. It's freezing near the Oklahoma-Kansas border, it's hard to believe that it was in the 80s a couple of days ago.

      I'm in Kansas(KC area) as well. Sunday night we were having dinner with my parents and couldn't eat on the patio because it was too hot(94) at 7:45 at night. Then woke up Monday and had to dig out my winter/fall running tops for my morning bike ride and it's still in the low 50's here. 

  17. Am I the only one that doesn't mind Jar-Jar? He's just C3P-O without R2D2.

    2. Magmavision2000


      You guys act defensive because you know it's true.



      Jar-Jar is, and always will be equal to C3P-O


    3. GoldLeader


      Now,...Who would you rather be stuck in a room with?   3PO, Quiet Mode!   

    4. doctorclu


      I actually liked JarJar and just thought they needed to meld the characters together more.   While he was wasted in the prequels, the Clone Wars series with their amazing writing did some cool things with the character.

  18. What's the name of the society Fred Flintstone's apart of?

      Oh yeah, that was the city or something. It's been too long.. :))

    3. GoldLeader


      Was there a Grand Poobah?   I bet I'm thinking of Happy Days.

    4. King_Salamon


      Yup... there was a Grand Poobah.  Ahh those were the days!  lol

  19. If you were to have a disappointing present gifted to you, would you rather get it on your birthday, or during Christmas?

    1. Jinroh


      My birthday and Christmas are 3 days apart, so it is irrelevant I suppose. x3

    2. GoldLeader


      Wouldn't matter.  I don't dwell on the negative.

  20. I just finished eating some late-night scum-fries (or Blimy-chips if you're from the U.K.), and besides tasting like charcoal, they weren't that bad.

  21. Why doesn't Microsoft Flight Simulator simulate plane crashes?

      Choice material! ..Grand Theft Aero..

    3. simbalion


      I really never knew that about Flight Simulator. Oh well, if I want to crash a plane I can fire up some GTA San Andreas, steal a plane and wreck it! :)

    4. GoldLeader


      Oh,  I never got far in that one.  Didn't realize you actually could steal a plane...

  22. Anyone notice that the eshop looks different?

    1. bluejay


      Has it changed?

      I haven't touched my switch in months.

  23. I was looking at the first issue of Electronic Games, and I came across a piece where they were "comparing" Asteroids and Space Invaders. They tried to claim that Midway developed Galaxian and it was a successor to Space Invaders.

    1. Show previous comments  3 more
    2. masschamber


      considering space invaders and galaxian both say by midway on the cabinet, it isn't that far of a stretch to assume it was a sequel.  Like has been said before, this was before you could pop out your phone and find a misleading article on the internet in seconds, then find a more accurate one with a few minutes of searching.

    3. fultonbot


      Yeah, at that time the Katz/Kunkel/Worley were some of the only people who even took video games seriously as a wave of the future.   

    4. GoldLeader


      At the time,  and like others have said, with the word Midway right on the cabinet, Galaxian was considered the spiritual successor to Space Invaders though there was a direct sequel in the  form of the Deluxe machine...

  24. Fun Fact: In the late '80s, for a very short time, Pepsi had the 6th largest navy in the world since the USSR traded them billions of dollars worth of ships for Pepsi.


    Look it up if you don't believe me.

    1. GoldLeader


      Yep!  17 submarines and 3 warships,  which Pepsico acted as a middleman to scrap them...Rubles were not used as currency since the Russian Govt controlled them, (and a Russian Vodka deal fell apart after the Soviets invaded Afghanistan) so this was a deal for payment...HMMMmmm   Ya know Magmavision,   I don't even know if I would have believed this story without looking it up!  

    2. DuggerVideoGames


      Should've traded New Coke for a bear.

    3. jd_1138


      Yeah it's a reminder that corporations are not like a mom and pop business. It's all about assets, cash flow, etc..

  25. I just woke up with a bad stiff neck, what can I do besides scream in agony?

      Take an Ibuprofen, with a bit of food ideally...

    3. BydoEmpire


      Alternate hot and cold packs?  At the very least a hot pack might help the area relax.

    4. bluejay


      Oh also, try taking a warm bath.
