  1. 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...? 

  2. I must've eaten something bad, because I contracted the 2600 bug!

      I've got the Jaguar bug and man is it expensive to treat!🤮

  3. What was the first piece of optical media you ever bought?

  4. Has anyone here had good luck with Nintendo stock?

      I have not tried making Nintendo broth lately.  The last time I did, I mixed it with SEGA noodles and it turned out poorly.

      I have in the past but not currently,  though that rumor of a Switch 2 might have given them a boost..

      Not in my neck of the woods, which makes me lucky that I got mine back in 2017.

  5. Whoever mentioned Yellow Magic Orchestra in the "music that could be in a video game" thread, thank you. I've been a huge fan since then.

      Yup, a good third of their first album is video game music. :)

  6. There's an increasing number of users who are using the "Buy, Sell, Trade" section of the forum for wanted posts, despite there being not only a subforum right under the buy, sell, trade subforum, but also a pinned post saying NOT to post wanted posts in the buy, sell, trade subforum.  Don't do this please.

      Wanting something is usually the first step in Buy, Sell, or Trade. Makes total sense and it isn't going to change.

  7. I can't sleep, might as well play Famicom until I get tired.

  8. I'm happy that Telnet still exists on Windows platforms. I like to see old, obsolete technology still being supported.

      Yep, still a whole world out there to see.   https://www.telnetbbsguide.com/

      I use it at work all the time, but not for actual sessions.  Quick and easy way to tell if a port is open/reachable on a remote machine!

  9. Koopa or Bowser: Which sounds cooler?

      New screen name?  Bowser for sure!

      Koopa is cooler

      Like Koopa.

  10. I decided to sell most of my NES collection, reasonable offers welcome!  https://atariage.com/forums/topic/310315-fs-my-nes-collection/

      What about low-ball offers? 

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

    1. ApolloBoy

      ApolloBoy

      @masschamber Actually the NES port of Commando was done by Capcom themselves, it was the first NES/Famicom game they programmed in-house.

    2. Magmavision2000

      Magmavision2000

      Yeah, those early Capcom games were pretty janky.

      7800 version is perfection IMO although it was released at a later date

  12. My Famicom collection has grown to the point where I had to remove my NES collection from the shelf. If it gets any bigger, I'll have to start removing my 2600 games.

      WOW! I have only a single cheap knock off multicart for famicom 😆 I admit though I LOVE the size and look of famicom carts compared to the bulky large NES versions.

      Hmph.  First world problems.

  14. It's kinda sad that almost all of the classic gaming reviewers from the early days of YouTube are gone. And even if they still make stuff, it doesn't have the same feel as their older videos.

      What is AVGN calling himself now?

    3. Magmavision2000

      Magmavision2000

      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

    4. JacobZu7zu7

      JacobZu7zu7

      I meant to say, changed from Angry Nintendo Nerd to AVGN. Not from AVGN... but couldn't edit post.

  16. The only piece of Star Trek media I've seen in full is the Pilot episode of TOS.

     

     

     

    Is my Atariage liscense now revoked?

    1. GoldLeader

      GoldLeader

      IMO, TOS and TNG are pretty worthwhile.  I'm still getting through all of TOS...There's also some fun to be had in each of the other series,  but I'm no expert.

    2. jaybird3rd

      jaybird3rd

      I second that recommendation, TOS and TNG are well worth looking into.  In numerous places, you'll find "Top 10" lists for both series, so if you don't want to commit to watching every single episode, use these lists as a guide.  You should see the first six Trek movies as well, but in my opinion you'll appreciate them better if you watch them only *after* finishing TOS.

       

      TNG took longer to "gel" as a series, so the first two seasons get a bad rap, but there are gems to be found there as well.  I'll recommend nine episodes from both seasons to help you steer clear of the dross.  From S1, check out the two-part pilot "Encounter at Farpoint", then "Where No One Has Gone Before," "The Big Goodbye," "Datalore," "11001001," "Home Soil," "Heart of Glory," "Skin of Evil," and "The Neutral Zone."  From S2, check out "The Child," "Elementary, Dear Data," "Samaritan Snare," "The Measure of a Man," "Contagion," "Time Squared," "Pen Pals," "Q Who," and "Peak Performance."  S3 on is pretty solid, with a few exceptions, though the four TNG movies were IMHO a disappointment.

      Admitting it is the first step.

  17. There's a man who lives in a rental dumpster in Queens. He was born in 1832 and saw the Statue of Liberty when it was new. He also has long toenails so he can climb walls.

      Yo MV,

       

      Have you gotten into the raw oatmeal raisin cookie dough again?

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

  19. like 6 hamburger patties (no bun) 2 hours ago, and now everytime I belch, it smells like I farted out of my mouth.

      You didn't season them with Emeril spices, did you?  The last time I used his seasonings, I was a fart factory.

      A potent combination is hot dogs and cake frosting. They come out wet and that smell takes eons to completely dissipate.

  20. Is price charting even worth it anymore? I just look at the game on eBay and get the cheapest one.

  21. I don't know if it's because my 3DS is modded, or if it's just a feature I didn't know existed, but when I boot up a game and then go to the Internet app, it has the game name in the search engine.

    1. SlidellMan

      SlidellMan

      More likely a feature, then again, I never used the 3DS browser.

  22. What's big and brown and stinks all the time?

  23. You know, Joe Besser wasn't that bad of a Stooge.

    1. retrorussell

      retrorussell

      I was too young to know him as a Stooge (I had watched some old Stooges that didn't have him yet) but I remembered him as Babu the genie in the cartoon Jeannie.

    2. SlidellMan

      SlidellMan

      I don't blame him for how dull the episodes he was in were. Rather, I blame lazy writers.

  24. Here's a useful law: Whale poaching is illegal... in Oklahoma.

      We know THAT ain't against the law in Oklahoma!

  25. I just saw a short clip of a recent episode of SpongeBob and the animation looked like it was from a YouTube parody. Everything was squishy, fast, and the characters looked nothing like what they used to. Is this what happens when you let a show go on for 20+ years?

    1. doctorclu

      Always looked like cheap animation to me.

      There's also the change from traditional animation to digital but at least Spongebob is still a 2D show.
