  1.  I got bored so I haphazardly put my TV in the vertical position for the Authentic Arcade Experience™ [See pic] 20200507_113836.thumb.jpg.12baa2daab70b1d3e22ecfb109a2f5c3.jpg

      Now you're cookin'! Next, consider chopping up a couple of bookcases to build the cabinet.

  4. (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Li_Ching-Yuen) If it's true this man lived to be 256, I genuinely feel bad for him. 

  5. (I'm truly sorry to rant, but this has been in my mind for a while)


    Why is it that some old people (60+) demand they get the respect/benefits that old people usually get, yet, refuse to acknowledge/accept their old?!? It doesn't matter if you feel like Stallone or if you feel like Granny Smith, you can't eat your cake and have it too!


    To clarify, I don't hate old people (I actually really respect them), I just hate the small minority that I mentioned above.

      You don't have to think you are old to think you are entitled to free money.

      Being 60 IS old.


    4. GoldLeader


      Being 50 is old!

  6. (See link) I decided to go ahead and write about the topic I had in mind for Lost Gaming Vault, 70s video games! I have written about each game in more detail than the 64DD one, and there are pictures! If you have any ideas for Lost Gaming Vault, just comment on the entry! https://atariage.com/forums/blogs/entry/16666-lost-gaming-vault-70s-video-games/



  7. *Piano from Bohemian Rhapsody plays* eBaaaaaayyyyyy, why won't you work? My PayPal is completely fine, but all you do is fit and whine.

  8. 20200320_232724.thumb.jpg.aba2a7209eefa7aaf07c1d2ecbaa3ed8.jpgA quick update about the 2000s nick recording: after finding my old capture card, and finding an old VCR I thought was dead, I'm (proud?) to say I'm currently digitizing it and it will be on my Google Drive either in a couple of hours or tomorrow. Be warned though, I'm digitizing a decayed VHS tape using a composite capture card with low-quality AV cables, so don't expect it to be crystal clear. Here's a pic showing how damaged it is after being used for 18 years.


    Edit: I feel like I should list all the "features" of this tape. 


    1. A crap ton of Spongebob (nothing really special)

    2. Quite a few segments of the semi-obscure nick variety show Upick-Live (possibly some segments that were never uploaded on the internet!)

    3. Lots of both local and national commercials from the early 2000s.

    4. A Toonami commercial on Nick (don't know why)

    5. An anti-climactic secret that I'm hiding so people will watch the recording. 🙂

    6. Hours of early 2000s TV (However it's all Nick)



    1. jaybird3rd


      Cool!  It looks as if Spongebob is stuck in a malfunctioning transporter.

    2. atari2600land


      I have tons of old VHS tapes dating back to 1983, when I was a kid. The oldest Nick stuff is from the Ren & Stimpy era, though, I have like 3 tapes of Ren & Stimpy airings on Snick.

    3. GoldLeader


      I have some Dungeons & Dragons cartoons and Land of the Lost reruns from the 80's on VHS complete with commercials...Ahhh..Good Times!

      Did you know there's an entire Star Wars Comic series/Books about that guy and what he did after he was told to go home and rethink his life? It's amazing.

    3. GoldLeader


      You don't wanna











      watch those prequels...

    4. Magmavision2000


      I want to go home and rethink my life...

    Sorry for my sick sense of humor.

  13. A new Arcade Archives Reviews entry is up! This one's about the infamous Nintendo game Sky Skipper!

      The U.S. flag now has 50 stars on it, not 48. ;)

      LMAO I just noticed that. 

  15. According to science, Chickens, as well as ostriches, are closely related to the Tyrannosaurus Rex. And since Ostrich eggs are basically just really big Chicken eggs, it's safe to assume that Ostrich meat tastes like Chicken. Therefore, is it safe to say that T-Rex meat also tasted like Chicken?

      Well, Mary Schweitzer found soft T.Rex tissue. Perhaps she and her lab.staff enjoyed a good fried and spiced T.Rex in secret...? 

  16. After 3 months, Burgertime is finally on the eshop for $7.99.


    1. digdugnate


      oh sweet!  i'll have to go pick it up.

  17. After watching the original airing of "A Charlie Brown Christmas", I'm craving a nice refreshing Coca-Cola™ (See Pick)

      I could go for some chocolate Zingers by Dolly Madison-- er, Hostess.

    3. GoldLeader


      Funny I actually thought I bought some of those Hostess Cupcakes,  I guess I really didn't look too carefully,  blue and white box and all....Turns out, they're Little Debbies!

    4. retrorussell


      Little Debbie's makes some pretty decent stuff too.  Brownies and Boston Crème Rolls.. wow

  18. Al, I'll give you not 1, but 2 virtual cans of pepsi  if you make a Sega Saturn subforum.

      Nobody knows the trouble I've seen,

      Nobody knows, but Sega

    4. Mikebloke


      Ehhh should just be a sega subforum imo... Then all the awesome people can collect in one place...

  19. All of those findings after that huge Nintendo leak happened made me wish I actively used Twitter.


    But only a little.

    1. IntelliMission


      I only have an account to be able to click on "All replies and messages", a button that prompts visitors to log in when clicked. A couple of times I have sent private messages too.


      If you think Twitter sucks, remember that everyone under 25yo uses Instagram as their main social network AND chatting app. (And yes, Twitter sucks, but at least it's based around text and not images).


      Thanks for mentioning the leak, I will check that now.

  20. Allergy update: I woke up with phlegm in my throat and my face still feels puffed up, but the weezing is gone!

    1. joeatari1


      If I don't have my allergy shots regularly my throat closes up and my uvula swells up.  So basically I can't breathe.  It's fun.

  21. 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.

  22. Any fans of Gamecenter CX on AtariAge?

      I'm just recommending how to get episodes in a silly way, due to the semi-illegal nature of grabbing torrents. I certainly have no problem downloading stuff like this we don't really have access to.

    3. Magmavision2000


      @dj_convoy Well that joke went over my head. 😁

    4. Magmavision2000


      Since some people haven't seen the show, I decided to make a sample pack with four episodes. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/8n1wq1tu0xdx4vg/AABtDXlM_lWqoaeYLqLug9q5a?dl=0 I STRONGLY recommend supporting the creators of the show and buying their DVDs.

  23. Anyone else feel like the eshop is just a slightly higher quality version of Google Play (slight exaggeration)?
