      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! :)

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

  2. 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.

      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.

      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.

  6. Beef Jerky is one of the few types of food where the store bought stuff is better than homemade.

      Magmavision2000

      I gotta respectfully disagree with you guys. Every type of homemade beef jerky I've had tasted awful. 

    3. _The Doctor__

      _The Doctor__

      I'd say you need new suppliers of jerky, tenderized and properly dehydrated jerky can fall apart in your mouth, any jerky left out in the air or a paper sack may dry out hard as a rock over time. Oil can be added to take the place of water in home made jerky for those who no longer have teeth ;) there are just so many ways to make jerky and so many recipes.  Chances are your store bought jerky was a home made recipe at one time, might have some garbage in it to make you want more (MSG) or some moisture added back in, almost all store bought jerky is of lower quality these days... right down to the cut of meat used.

    4. thanatos

      thanatos

      There are at least two local jerky makers I know of that has fantastic stuff.  I would technically call it homemade because it is only sold in person in small batches.  Sort of like the old pickled egg jar at a bar.

      So I would have to disagree.

      AVGN, but he was originally called the Angry Nintendo Nerd, but when he started reviewing 2600 games, he changed it so it would be broader

      I mentioned that on 7 ups status. It's only a matter of time till Al jumps in with the ban hammer and starts knocking everyone down a peg or two. It's seems people are getting aggressive when others disagree no matter which side of the fence you're on. Quite childish considering we're all supposed to be intelligent adults. I expect this behavior on Facebook but never thought the AA community would act like that...

      If you think the thread's out of line, report it.  Personally I find reading the comments  interesting for the most part, and although there are a couple of heated opinions, I wouldn't consider most of the comments 'childish'.

      I find it more sad than interesting that people are egging on the paranoid by saying it's the end of their life because of this virus. Then only to get heated when someone disagrees with their statement. Reading others expressing their fear and panic with ill advised non professional advice isn't all that great either. My two cents...

  12. Did you ever hear the tragedy of Lord Karnage?

     

    I thought not. It's not a story AVGN would tell you. It's a CGR legend. Lord Karnage was a Lord of the retro games, so powerful and so wise he could use Youtube to influence the audience to love retro games... He had such a knowledge of the retro games that he could even get his video games from one guy in Qatar. The dark side of the internet is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural. He became so powerful... the only thing he was afraid of was losing his audience, which eventually, of course, he did. Unfortunately, he taught his apprentice everything he knew, then his apprentice killed him in his sleep. Ironic, he could save others from death, but not himself.

      I get his frustration. He put some actual time / effort / production into his stuff. He seems content doing publishing and quickie, off the cuff comic reviews on YouTube right now, so it's not like it had a tragic ending or anything.

    3. MrMaddog

      MrMaddog

      I don't blame him for not putting anything on YT anymore... Google really cheaps out on ad revenue payments unless it's some obnoxious gameplay streams, a dime a dozen on Twitch.  And now the FTC wants to fine YT'ers for having child targeted ads even though it's Google that puts them on.  The only way for anyone to get money for making professionally made videos is either through Patron e-begging or VPN ads.

      @GoldLeader That sounds like either Greed or Birth of A Nation. It was probably Greed though since Birth of A Nation isn't really safe for work.

      IMHO jazz is listening. In composition it's about listening to the movement in the harmony and melody, and how they support each other.  In performance it's about listening and reacting to the other musicians in the band.  In improvisation it's about listening to where things are going, and what each musician is doing, and how you support that together.  It's hard to separate jazz from improvisation - that's been a fundamental aspect of it since its inception.  Prog and metal don't typically have as much of an improvisation component, but of course anything can be done.  Some bands like Umphrey's McGhee have some heavier songs and certainly improvise, but it's more of a rock context than jazz.  Improv alone doesn't make something jazz, nor does more complex harmony.

  16. 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.

      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.

      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

      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...

      I sympathize.  I have year round allergies but my peak is ragweed season from August through October.  I get serum shots every other week and use Flonase.  Most of the pills are like sugar pills to me, they do practically nothing.

      I used to get custom Serum Shots every 2 weeks (I think it was)...I could never tell if anything was getting better or worse.  Gave up the shots long ago.  Nowadays I do kind of like Zyrtec (or generic equivalents),...Most pills do nothing or very little (Claritin, I could eat like PEZ, for instance and it does absolutely nothing,   less than a sugar pill)...People tell me to try Flonase, but I've never known a nasal spray to do anything...

      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.
