  1. Robert Pattinson: The first Batman that looks scared.

  2. Lesson #1 from 2021: If Keanu Reeves is involved in a hyped project, prepare the popcorn: there will be drama.

  3. If Atari had released the Dreamcast in 1973 with Ray Tracing, Dungeons & Dragons wouldn't have had a chance.

    1. IntelliMission


      @DraxxonDon't be so confused. Check out the Atari 2600, Jaguar and Dreamcast forums for references.

  4. "For a genius, George Lucas sure has a lot of bad ideas". Now that's a way to start a video game review! (Quote from CGW's review of Indiana Jones and his Desktop Adventures in 1996)

  5. Sorry for the non-Garfield related interlude, but Alan Moore views on magic and art are interesting:

    I thought he had gone crazy, but it appears he just started calling art "magic".


    1. joeatari1


      How dare you!  Then again the mere mention of it being non Garfield related actually makes it Garfield related.  So, bravo, carry on!

  6. Austria will make vaccination mandatory in February. Other European countries may do the same.

      I gave a like that he posted the info.  Also gave Thanatos a like for an opinion...One thing I'd say,  is that I don't like "Mandatory" things,...Yet I believe a vaccine is a great choice based on science. 

    3. carlsson


      I saw that a brothel in Austria offered 30 min free services to anyone getting vaccinated. 150 men came to get a shot with benefits.

    4. GoldLeader


      ^Long way to go for some "vaccine".  LOL!

  7. Unpopular opinion: Halloween (the movie) is way better than Halloween (the celebration).

      Watching a horror movie in general is always a good time,...But I have a lot of Great memories of past Halloweens!

    3. BydoEmpire


      I do like monster and ghost movies, but for whatever reason, absolutely zero interest in slasher films.  Different strokes for different folks. Happy Halloween (which, if it wasn't obvious, I'd vote holiday >>>>>> movie).

    4. GoldLeader


      ^I have a friend who thinks exactly the same way.  I like both,  and some blur the lines pretty well...House of 1,000 Corpses for instance,  slasher-like in some ways, but with that brilliant set-up and almost music video directing at times, hitting Halloween and Horror themes so well ;)  🎃  🤡

  8. Looking forward to Uncharted: The Movie: The Game: The movie.

    1. GoldLeader


      Are you gonna have an Uncharted: The Movie: The Game: The movie: The Viewing Party ?  😆

  9. I'm starting to see an inverse IQ/number of status updates relation.

    1. Rogerpoco


      Everyone has their own thing, Man.

      Including growing old and curdmugeonly.


  10. Reminder: Don't post several Garfield Status Updates. Use Garfield Status Updates cautiously.

    1. GoldLeader


      People seem to like them,  but maybe mixing it up is in order...(Like don't let it become "expected");  A random amount of Garfield will keep it special.

  11. Last night I had my most nerdish dream ever: was in a book shop and saw NEW "ESCAPE FROM TENOPIA/FROME" BOOKS.

    1. nanochess


      Haha, as a kid I had a Frome book and a Tenopia one. As an adult managed to get two more Frome books, but I don't have saw Tenopia books anymore.

  12. Anyone remember a Star Wars/Trek parody movie where the crew of a starship were all a bunch of incredibly hairy hippies with extremely long beard and hair? Made in the 70s or 80s, very obscure, doesn't appear in any "list of parody movies" list. Could be European.

      Maybe near the end of The Ice Pirates, when they all got old in a time warp?

    3. IntelliMission


      Thanks for the answers! It can't be BBC's HGttG because there was no guy with a bathrobe, but it's certainly similar to the ending of The Ice Pirates. I will have to check that one out!

      (I saw the hairy people in the TV as a kid and now that I'm watching the original Star Trek series and movies, I couldn't help but remember it when starting The Motion Picture [1979]).


      UPDATE: Okay, so it looks VERY SIMILAR to The Ice Pirates ending, but the movie I'm looking for looks like this all the time. The hairy people are the characters in their normal state somehow.

    4. thanatos


      Remembering stuff as a kid is sometimes weird.  I recalled a scene from what I thought was a movie my dad was watching, and it somehow stuck in my head.  Never saw it again, never could figure out the movie.


      And just this past year, because of all the old TV shows on the antenna channels, I randomly saw the actual scene again, and it was an episode of CHIPS.  My mind was blown!


      That's the main reason I thought it might have been the Ice Pirates - I thought it might have been a similar situation.



  13. Would Atari have been more powerful had they conquered the whole world and add an Atari logo to each national flag?

    1. carlsson


      I'm not entirely sure, but here are a few previews.

      Nah, Atari would have over stretched their resources into too many programs and ultimately gone bankrupt.

  14. How to kill suspension of disbelief in 5sec- "it's inhabited by humanoids" (3 white dudes appear speaking English)

    1. Show previous comments  1 more
    2. IntelliMission


      The issue is the lack of imagination. It's a show made by white dudes who speak English where half of the alien races have evolved... to be white dudes who speak English. I don't know, at least paint their skins blue or something.

    3. _The Doctor__

      _The Doctor__

      the rant we expected... and didn't need... it's everywhere... I'd suspect if the show were made in a land full of purple people, we'd see purple things... this stuff is tiresome... if only people were logical...

      TOS had green people, black people, asian people... and on and on... it even had half of this color half of that... they had all sizes shapes and colors for people and alien... you are off base and off topic, take this crap away!

      nice job editing what you said after I responded to it... poor move

  15. Spencer Elden, the baby in Nevermind's cover, just sued Nirvana for child abuse.

      Wouldn't he need to sue his parents then?  I'm sure it wasn't Nirvana saying, 'Hey, We'll babysit!" ... Are they gone?  Let's throw him in the pool!  Get your camera!

    4. Hydro Thunder

      And I say if you're going to sue, you don't get to sue the band.  The economy of music these days?  Come on, you know who took the lion's share of the sales of Nevermind, and it sure AF wasn't Kurt or Dave etc.  Go for the soulless greed vacuums in the suits, they're the ones who take way too much money to make sure all the compensation agreements are signed etc. (and the same peeps who denied Spinal Tap's Smell the Glove first cover ;) ). Plus you could probably attack them and they'd settle out of court for $5mil just to shut you up.   

  16. Found an old sheet of paper on the ground next to my house. Squares drawn and a "You start at the tomb" message in Spanish apparently written by a kid. It MUST be a 30+ year old text adventure map... Whoa!

    1. GoldLeader


      Maybe it's a treasure map!  Get crackin'!

  17. Google word for definition, shitty modern band appears. Google 25yo good band, word definition appears. Thanks, Google.

  18. As a 20 year old, I realize life is much different than... Nah, who am I kidding? I'm more than twice that! Damn....

  19. Won't you tell me what's on your mind? If you'd open your head tell me what would I find, are you for real? What do you feel?

      My Brain is Insane

      Sometimes it's full of pain

      Other times it's filled with Rage

      If you peeked you'd be afraid

      Of the thoughts that I display

  20. He who hears
    In the vast silence
    He who wafts
    On the red wind
    In extremis
    He who steals
    Pearls from the ashes
    He who leaps
    Across the precipice
    Ride si sapis


    (P.S.: It looks like "Ars Moriendi" means "the art of dying" and "ride si sapis" means "laugh if you know how to").

  21. Nohing is better than William Shatner hawking the VIC-20. Except for William Shatner covering Mr. Tambourine Man.



  22. Imagine a game with limited inventory space, a time limit, unskippable cutscenes and respawning, flying enemies that can go through walls. Does anyone know such a gem?


    And maybe tank controls and 10 feet of draw distance, why not?

      Was it a pack in game for the Jaguar?  



      (People are always discussing the mistakes Atari made with Jaguar...)

      With the exception of the tank controls, all of that applies to Sonic 3 (& Knuckles), as you can only carry 999 rings at once, you die if the timer hits 10 minutes, there are multiple unskippable cutscenes, and there are those flying things in Launch Base Zone that you can intentionally spawn with those alarm thingies, and those go through walls.

  23. I'm afraid I officially entered the 'They Make Remakes of Games I Didn't Give a Fuck About' age.

    1. Mikebloke


      I guess the age of "It was originally released in HD because it wasn't that long ago but lets call a remaster of the graphics the HD version" is finally over.

    2. CPUWIZ


      Cough, Intellivision games included. :ponder:

  24. The world would be a better place if *some people* had Google Scholar as their default search engine.

    1. Keatah


      And even better if they stayed off the internet entirely.

  25. To the guy saying he had 15 items and he had tried licking all of them... Were you playing Space Quest IV by any chance?

    1. 7800Knight


      No, just your typical adventure game.

    2. GoldLeader


      Nope,  nope,  it was just 15 things I found rolling around on the floor in the back seat of my car.
