  1. They finally listened! A good update! Us folks in the land of the setting sun are getting: SNES: DONKEY KONG COUNTRY!!!, and Natsume Championship Wrestling NES: The Immortal The boys in Japan are getting: SFC: Super Donkey Kong, and Shin Megami Tensei FC: VICE: Project Doom This is the most promising update in a while, my only gripe is that they're only trickling out NES and FC games, hopefully next update they give us a bit more. I'm definitely looking forward to this update! https://nintendoeverything.com/nintendo-switch-online-reveals-new-snes-nes-games-for-july-2020-update/
  2. Milk is just cheesy water.

      Skim milk is just white water.  Yuck..

      I've been having skim milk since I was a kid.  I'm so used to it that milk with more than 1% fat is gross to me.


    3. retrorussell


      Yuck; my folks drink skim milk.. 2% is just right for me.  I used to drink 3.whatever% but that's a bit much now.

  3. I absolutely love this series (you probably already know since I can't stop talking about it here!), but some of the games they released should've just stayed in the arcade. So I'm going to make a series of entries where I will see whether or not a game is worth the price tag. I will be rating them between 1-10 (0 if it's really bad). Now, before I start reviewing stuff, I'll give you an explanation of what Arcade Archives is: Arcade Archives is a series of re-released arcade games, ranging from the early '80s all the way to the early 2000s. This series started in 2014 on the PlayStation 4 but is now on the Xbox One (ACA NEO GEO only), PC (ACA NEO GEO only), and Nintendo Switch. As of 2020, only the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 receive both Arcade Archives and ACA NEO GEO, with the Switch getting some exclusive Nintendo arcade games, and the PS4 getting a mix of Taito and Konami games exclusive to the PS4. The company who re-releases these games (HAMSTER CORPORATION.), seems to announce games on a live stream on Niconico (a Japanese video sharing site, similar to YouTube). As of writing this, there are 120 games in the Arcade Archives catalog and 108 games in the ACA NEO GEO catalog. ACA NEO GEO is a spinoff of the Arcade Archives series where they re-release the arcade versions of various Neo Geo games. Each game is $7.99 and they rarely go on sale, so they're pretty firm on the price. This where people usually back away, as the price may seem high for just one game, but I personally think if you really want to play a game in their catalog, $7.99 isn't that bad. Okay, let's say you go ahead and get one of the games, here's what you get with it: The game: you'll obviously get the ROM of the game, you get the average stuff that comes with an emulated ROM, the ability to change the controls, a decent CRT filter, a save state feature (you only get one, unfortunately), an online leaderboard, and sometimes, you'll get different versions of the games (e.g. Japanese and English versions). High score mode: A mode where you get to compete for a high score on one credit. Caravan mode: where you try to get the highest score possible in 5 minutes. Think of it as a high score speedrun of sorts. I think, for what you get, it's not that bad. I'd give the Arcade Archives series a 9/10. Okay, that's about it! You can think of this entry as a pilot or press release of what's about to come. I currently have 1 review written, and im just proofreading it right now. Thanks for reading! NOTE: I am not endorsed by HAMSTER CORPORATION. I just really like this series. Some reviews may have a bit of bias in them, so take this (and all reviews for that matter) with a grain of salt.
  4. I was on the fence about watching Lupin the III for a while (I watched out of context clips of the dub, which were hilarious). I finally decided to watch it after Classicgamer74's video on Lupin the III games, and I'm currently loving it. I started with part 2 and I'm currently on the one where they go to Egypt so I'm not too far in, but it has to be my second favorite anime next to Pop Team Epic. I'm watching the dub, and I think they added some comedy in it, but I'm okay with that since I don't take anime seriously.

  5. Why do people pronounce MK Raiden as Rayden but pronounce the shmup as Rai-den (which is the correct way to say Raiden I think)? English is weird.

    1. The Usotsuki

      The Usotsuki

      The MK Raiden/Rayden is pronounced as "Rayden" by the various voice-overs, kind-of forcing things.  (But Japanese people will say it as proper Japanese nonetheless; that comes up once in Hi Score Girl.)


      It should honestly be Ry-den for both, but eh.

    2. masschamber


      I wouldn't go to mortal kombat  for authentic, well anything, Shaolin monks are Chinese pacifists, Raiden is a shinto god, everything is wacky, play mk for punching off peoples skulls, not learning about Asian cultures and language

    3. GoldLeader


      I wonder how Data says Raiden?

  6. I played the first Bubsy game on an emulator not too long ago and I didn't enjoy it. The graphics were very nice, the music was okay, but the gameplay was just bad in my opinion. It was floaty and I didn't feel like I was doing anything. Granted, I only played through level 1 and that's it, so I'll need to play it more to get a better opinion on it, but man, that was an awful first impression. UPDATE: played through a little bit again, still bad.
  7. TIL: Atari made a fighting game called "Boxer" in 1978, but it was never released. It was also the inspiration for Activision's "Boxing". I believe it's dumped now so anyone can play it. 

  8. (It's currently 4:32 A.M. and im super tired, so I'm sorry for any inconsistencies in my post) I was looking at my storage just in case I needed to delete some stinkers in my collection, and to my surprise, I had 21.1 GB of free system storage and 12.9 GB of free space on my SD card (out of 32 GB). I'm kinda amazed at how small switch games are (I know there's some like L.A. Noire that are like 40GB. But in general they're pretty small). Now, im not a demanding player. I usually buy small classic games for it, but I do own a decent amount of games, about 33 games and they all hold on an SD card (I have some on the system storage, but I was able to fit them all on the SD card when I tested it). The largest game in my collection is Night Trap: 25th Anniversary Edition at only 6.2GB. The most detailed game in my collection, Mario Odyssey only takes up 386MB of space (most of the game's on the card though). Now, im sure if I add a few more first-party games to my library, my storage would be full, but with how I mostly use my system (hybrid classic game console and YouTube player), I should be fine for the next couple of years. What's the largest game you own for your switch? How much space do you have left on it? Are you going to upgrade your storage anytime soon?
  9. I want to tell the person it's fake, but either they already know, or won't listen. I'll just report it.
  10. I just learned pigeons produce milk. 

    1. Magmavision2000


      @save2600 Pigeon milk factory. I'll call it "Avian Dairy™". I'll make millions selling it to hipsters!

    2. joeatari1


      I have nipples Focker, can you milk me?

    3. GoldLeader


      Just not much...I mean 12 pigeons later you're still thirsty...

  12. I've created a lost gaming club. If you're into that stuff, then come on and join! https://atariage.com/forums/clubs/56-the-official-lost-gaming-club/




  13. When I'm reading the word, I say "Weeko", but when I say it out loud, I say "Wicko".
  14. No, it's not the name of a lost visual novel. I've actually started a lost gaming club: It's not 100% set up yet, but it's certainly usable. If you enjoy my entries, you'll enjoy this club!
  15. I'll keep this short since most of you probably know the difference, but I'm still gonna post this for noobies. Lost, by definition, Is: Unable to find one's way; not knowing one's whereabouts. I put the important part in bold. Undumped, by definition, is: A video game that has not been dumped and uploaded to the internet. Examples of lost games: Taiwan 2001 (spiritual successor to Hong Kong 97), Bouncer, Circus Charlie (Atari 2600), and Sonic the Hedgehog 1990 Tokyo Toy Show Prototype. Examples of undumped games: Mortal Kombat: Nitro Edition (Dev has the prototype cart, but hasn't dumped it as of 7/2/20), Western Gun, and Grand Champion. If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask.
  16. Welcome to the Lost Gaming Club! Before you start posting, it's highly recommended you read the rules: 1. No talks of politics or religion. This is still Atariage and their rules are still enforced. Discussions of these topics usually start flame wars (have you seen the COVID-19 threads?) 2. No witch-hunting, doxxing, or harassing of people who own undumped games. Yeah, people who refuse to dump games are jerks, but you have to respect their wishes, just look for another lead. You will be banned instantly if you break this rule. 3. Be civil. Don't call people names or make fun of their beliefs. Please be mature here. 4. Don't post things you vaguely remember in the Lost Gaming section. That's what the Tip Of My Tounge section is for. Breaking these rules will result in a warning (except for #2), breaking them again will result in a ban.
  17. I played through Double Dragon (Arcade) last night, and not only was it the worst game I've ever played, but it was also so difficult I wasn't even happy when I beat it, I was just angry. At least the music is good.
  18. I've played a lot of bad games, and for most, I can find something to enjoy. But with Double Dragon (Arcade), I can't find anything good to talk about besides the music (which you can listen to on YouTube so don't bother playing the game to listen to it). Let's start off with the visuals. Now, for 1987 the graphics aren't terrible, but why does everything look off? I look at an Abobo and it looks like oatmeal. Then you have the controls which are very slippery and delayed. I don't know if it was Arcade Archives or not, but it felt like I was controlling a lubed up broken DVD remote. I don't even want to talk about the hitboxes, oh God the hitboxes, you have to stand in the perfect spot to hit an enemy, but if you even touch the D-Pad, you quit fighting and start moving, and if you start moving, you're vulnerable to attacks, and if you get hit, you might as well put in another credit because it's an instant game over. I think half of my game overs we're due to my character being stuck because an enemy was pummeling me to death. And to top it off, the game is pitifully short. I was able to beat it in 45 minutes (and a lot of credit scummimg), even with all the crap that is put in my way. I never thought I'd say an NES port us better than an arcade port. How this got past the test market stage is beyond me. I'd rather watch the Double Dragon movie or play the Atari 2600 version of Double Dragon (okay, maybe not that) than play this flawed game. If the Eshop issued refunds, I'd be getting one right now. Don't waste your money, 0/10.
  19. Oklahoma is the Mongolia of the US.

    1. carlsson


      I see that there already is a Genghis Grill in Oklahoma City. They market themselves as "much more than your ordinary Chinese Food or Mongolian BBQ restaurant", however that is good or bad.

    2. SlidellMan


      I thought that Wyoming, Colorado, Montana, the Dakotas, and Nevada were vying for that title.

    3. Magmavision2000


      @SlidellMan Wyoming is just a big volcano (or doesn't exist, there's no proof of it's existence), Colorado is just a big bong, Montana has a funny face, North Dakotans are Canadians that didn't get there in time South Dakotans are North Dakotans that didn't get there in time, and Nevada is a big casino with deserts surrounding it (also it's Na-Vah-Da, not Knee-Vaa-Da!). 



      This is all a joke btw

  20. With Super Punchout, and multiple Data East games (including Burgertime) on their way to the Eshop and PS store under the Arcade Archives brand, the possibilities are endless. If they could get ahold of the rights, Kung Fu Master and Great Swordsman would be excellent titles they could add to their catalog. Radar Scope would also be a good one to release since it stayed in the Arcades. What are some games you'd like to see on Arcade Archives?
  21. I wonder if Sonic CD will ever get the Sega Ages treatment. If it does, they better use the Christian Whitehead version. I was kind of angry they didn't use the CW version of Sonic 1 since that's like the best port out there.
  22. To 1-up Elon Musk, I'm gonna name my kid ß-æ@-(?)69¥¶∆π™. That'll show em!

    1. DragonGrafx-16


      Or called "69 Yen" for short...

  23. I never thought of that. According to the criteria of the Lost Media Wiki (where I get my information), Pong would technically be lost media (which is bogus). I'll bring that up to the people over there and see if they could change their criteria (they probably won't, but it never hurts to try). Also, Western Gun actually has a recreated version on Gamejolt by MasterofTTL, it has some sound issues, but other than that, it's pretty accurate. But it's still considered a lost game.
