      Double Dragon by a very large margin.

  2. Or you could have the proto ROM be made into a cart on the Atariage store (although I don't know how long that would take).
  3. For those who don't know, I have a series called Lost Gaming Vault on my blog where I talk about games that are lost. But I've noticed some of them aren't actually lost (as in no example has resurfaced) but are just simply undumped. Examples: Western Gun was a precursor to outlaw (which was the first game to use a CPU), Even though there are multiple cabinets of Western Gun known to exist, it hasn't been dumped due to the fact it runs on discrete logic. For some reason, this is considered lost, even though you can still play it (granted, you have to be very lucky, but still). Then there's stuff like Zero Racers where only screenshots exist, other than that there's nothing . What do you guys think? Should I start making a distinction between lost and undumped in my future entries?
  4. Okay, so I'm doing some late-night shaving (because it's like laundry, you always do it at night), and halfway through my electric razor dies. Now I have to stay up longer than I anticipated so I can fully shave my face. 

  5. Is Lupin III part 2 a good place to start? I can only watch part 2 on Hulu and I'm afraid I'll miss some lore if I don't watch Part 1 first.
  6. My picks would be: NES: Kung Fu and Pinball SNES: DKC 1-3 and maybe some Satelleview games DKC and Kung Fu would probably be a little hard to have put on the apps since Nintendo didn't develop them, and Kung Fu, in particular, is a licensed based game in Japan (It shares the same name and characters as Spartan X A.K.A Wheels On Meals), but they are both big games that are absent from their apps. I want Pinball on there just because it's an underrated pinball game.
  7. Shot in the dark question, but has anyone here worked at Columbus, Ohio Public Access in the late '90s to early '00s? I've stumbled across a really weird kids show I'd like to know more about. Why am I asking this here? Well, besides YouTube and Twitch, this the only social media platform im on and I'd assume that at least someone may have done technical stuff for their public access channel.

      I've seen blameitonjorge's video talking about that

      Same here, it was super interesting. I just want confirmation on if it was real or something the uploader made.

  8. I have played Jump Rope Challenge for a week now, and I can now flex my calves.

  9. I know that during the late 2000's to early 2010's there were loads of DS cart holders that flooded the market, you could probably find some of those for cheap. You could also use a card binder.
  10. This thread is about giving recommendations for beginner collectors (mainly the one's who aim to get as much as possible), it can help answer some questions about obtaining a full set in general. Plus it's kind of fun to challenge yourself with a small collection, if you're going for a bigger collection like the NES or Dreamcast, the rarer games usually come up on eBay and other sites often, but with smaller libraries, usually, the rare games don't show up often (usually because the system's rather obscure), so you actually have to seek a copy out instead of camping on eBay.
  11. I can't find a photo of Elevator Panic do you mind showing a picture of your copy?
  12. I'd try going to the Wanted Subforum and asking there. If that doesn't work, you might want to try to look at International auction sites. I hope this helps a little.
  13. I'm surprised there isn't a thread like this(or at least one that's not 10-15 years old). I kick this off with one I posted on the discord: In Galaxian for the Famicom, if you press the reset button 44 times, press A+B on the second controller (the one without the start and select buttons for those who don't know), and press reset one more time you'll be able to listen to some secret music! There are five songs in total and you have to repeat those steps every time to hear them all. You can also do it by pressing the reset button 10 times and then shouting into the mic 4 times, but It didn't work as well for me. Bonus one: In Super Mario Odyssey, if you go to the Metro Kingdom and look at the street signs, all the names will be references to DKC characters.
  14. For most systems, it's nearly impossible to get a complete collection. But there are some systems that have a very small library and you can realistically get a complete collection. I'd like to add the Cassettevision to the list, it has 11 released games (and 1 unreleased game, but I believe there's only one in existence so it doesn't count). The Virtual Boy has 14 NA games and 19 Japanese games, although there are some rare ones so it would be a little difficult to collect for. Do you guys know any more systems with a small library?
  15. I've stated my spicy opinion on the matter numerous times, but I'll do it again anyway Unlike the majority of the users on this forum, I never got to use the original hardware in its heyday (I'd say the average user age is between 35-50 years old whereas I'm 14) so I love having the original hardware so I can experience the same thing the previous generations did. Playing an Atari game on a CRT with the low humming sound filling up the room is a great experience, it's also nice to hear gears and stuff moving while you wait for an FDS game to load. Unfortunately, it gets kind of difficult playing on real hardware for one reason or another, that's when emulation comes in, I can lay down in my bed or sit at my computer with my modded 3DS and play just about any game I want, yes some games don't run properly, yes the sound can be off, but it's a sacrifice I'm willing to make in exchange for convenience. Like other people have said, there's going to be one day (hopefully in the far, far future) where most, if not all classic systems and games will be broken beyond repair and the only way to play them is through emulation. So instead of looking at pros and cons, we should accept this fate and help make emulators as accurate as we possibly can so when these systems stop working we can have 1:1 replicas (this is coming from someone who favors original hardware over emulation). Overall, I'd say the pros to emulation are convenience, good preservation, and the ability to add stuff that's absent from OG hardware (e.g. Online play). The cons are not always accurate, some emulators are poor quality, and the games lose some of their "soul" through emulation. Okay, now that I've written an essay, I'm going to bed.
  16. Kelibaca (I'm not sure on what your forum name is) on the AA discord exposed me to the Gamecenter CX 24/7 live stream and I've done nothing but watch it and play video games for like 3 days now.

  17. I believe Sega released games for the Dreamcast (in Japan) until 2007, I'll make a list and report back. Edit: Okay, so the list is WAY bigger than I expected, so I'll list the last three official Dreamcast games (according to Sega Retro) instead: Frog Feast Karous Trigger Heart Exelica There was also a Homebrew game Last Hope released in 2007 as well.
  18. Have you ever wanted to dictate what profile picture a user can have? Well, now you can! https://atariage.com/forums/topic/308160-game-choose-my-new-profile-picture/

    whichever photo gets the most reactions by the 21st will be my new profile picture!

  19. The music (at least Technotris) is okay IMO, it's just butchered due to the loud buzzing. There's an orchestral version that sounds great:
  20. Im surprised that nobody has chosen the Famicom version.
  21. For those who don't know, Nintendo released a free jump rope simulator called Jump Rope Challenge for the Switch on the 15th, I decided to download it after I found out about thanks to Steven Pendleton's post in the witch subforum, after cheating the first 100 while my joycons charged, I decided to actually try and do them. I might've gone too far... Granted, I did take 30 min-1 hour breaks in between, but I'm not active at all (to put it into perspective, I get tired when I go up a large flight of stairs (I know, pathetic)) so doing this really put my body into maximum overdrive. While doing them, I felt like I was going to pass out on multiple occasions, my legs hurt, I'm pretty sure I threw my back out, and to top it all off, my head hurts pretty bad (although that probably has something to do with dehydration). TL;DR I'm beat. But strangely, It felt "good", it was like I got a dopamine rush when I did it. I'll definitely be doing it again but in moderation.
  22. (Funny, when this was posted, I wasn't even a year old!) My favorite male video game character (hero) is Mario. He (and his brother) we're just minding there own business taking care of other people's business (if you get my drift), when all of the sudden, he was sucked into a pipe that sent him to a parallel universe! And he's such a nice guy, he helped its inhabitants fight against an evil turtle instead of having a mental breakdown. My favorite male video game character (villain/anti-hero) is Wario. He's kind of like me, he wants everything, but doesn't want to put in any effort, loves money, loves weird things, and most importantly, loves video games. My favorite female video game character (hero) is Samus, I mean, she went into an abandoned spaceship in order to fight a giant alien brain, and did this on multiple occasions! She has bigger balls than me and she doesn't even have balls! I don't know any female villains, so I'm gonna choose Isabelle since she probably runs an underground smuggling ring.
  23. That free switch game, Jump Rope Challenge is fun in the most exhausting, painful way possible. 8/10.
