  1. I still think "Super Nintendo" is one of the dumbest names for a console. In Japan the NES was called the "Famicom". So, when the "Super Famicom" came out it made sense in my mind. Nintendo Super Famicom sounds pretty good. But here in the US. the prior console was the Nintendo Entertainment System (or NES). So we got the Super NES (Super Nintendo Entertainment System)...or what is known as the "Super Nintendo"...but it just sounds dumber than Super Famicom to me...dunno why.

      You know what is even more dumb? The U.S. not adopting the Super Famicom design and making it purple.

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

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

  3. If you were an Atari game, which one would you be?

      I dunno, but definitely one of the crap ones.

  4. 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'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

      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.

      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.

      I'm haven't seen the Skeleton Brigade™, so we're still doing good.

  8. DBZ is fun to go back to, at least the Raditz, Saiyan, and Frieza sagas. The Cell and Buu sagas, on the other hand, tried too hard and were a complete bore.

    1. Magmavision2000

      Magmavision2000

      I haven't watched a lot of Dragon Ball, but from what I remember, after the Freiza saga, they basically became gods and the show became boring, since they would always win due to their power (and if they died they could always just find the Dragon Balls and wish the character back).

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

    1. Magmavision2000

      Magmavision2000

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

       

      Spoiler

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

  10. If you could go to sleep tonight and wake up in any year; which would it be and why?  Pick an age, retain your current memories. 

    1. Magmavision2000

      Magmavision2000

      Yeah, there's some games I'd miss out on, but judging in how the post is titled, time would progress as normal, it's just that you've been transported into the 80s, and you now have to live through it.

      World is my least-favorite classic Mario game, I hate Super Mario Kart, and OOT doesn't look like a game I'd enjoy.

      If I could come back, the late 1800s.

       

      Reason: I'm super into lost media, so I would go around with my wealth (household annual earnings aren't upper class, but in the late 19th century, I'd be Jeff Bezos) and buy up pristine copies of film prints, may stay until the release of King King and then go to the future and digitize and preserve them.

       

      If I have to stay, 80s without a doubt.

  13. So, no looking it up or posting the answer: How many know what the SD is SD card stands for?

    I had to finally look it up.

  14. What games are impossible to make on the Atari 2600?

  15. Windows 95 turns 25. Was any of you on launch date for it?

  17. Online classes suck.

    1. Magmavision2000

      Magmavision2000

      As someone who's been homeschooled since 3rd grade, I've grown accustomed to online classes. I like the fact I can do stuff at my own pace.

       

       

      Although sometimes I wish I had a tutor though.

  18. I don't get why they're bothering to dub Yakuza like a dragon, I don't think a dub is enough to bring in people that aren't interested and I don't think fans of Yakuza are the type of people that want  a dub.  But as long as they don't drop the original Japanese dub it  isn't a big deal.

      As long as they get Mark Hamil to reprise his role as Majima, then I'm cool with a dub.

  19. MS Flight Simulator 2020 is a stunningly beautiful game. Sim. Whatever.

      I watched someone play it, and it looks great when you're in the skies, but it looks like a really late PS3 game when you're near the ground.

  21. I was paying Commando on the NES, and it was so unstable, it felt like it was going to fold itself out of existence.

      Yeah, those early Capcom games were pretty janky.

      Do you got a good antivirus? Do you not use the computer anymore? Are you bored?

       

       

      If you answer yes to any of these questions, then yeah!
