  1. Finally got the gamebits to open the NES-101 Toploader I got for a decentish price. Yup. Thing was a roach nest once upon a time. Cleaned the heck outta it internally now. It's fully cleaned now!

      I hate roaches, as well as every single insect or any kind of tiny creatures full of juice.

  3. Does anyone know what's up with atari.io? It's been giving me some sort of error screen about malware for a bit and I can't get through it.

      What even is atari io anyway? I've never heard of that website before this thread and wouldn't have randomly gone there.

      It tried to serve me the same script, the other day.

       

      The Forum seems fine, but the main site is lousy with bad things.

    4. RALPH!

      RALPH!

      Type Forums.Atari.IO. go direct to forums. The Malware issue is with Word Press part of website. They work problem and replace Word Press part with HTML page soon.

  4. Psssst. You may wanna edit your most recent status update so people know it's a Bar/Arcade and not... you going in for an actual surgery. Lots of concerned people and sad emojis.

      @Prosystemsearch, Because Statuses no longer auto-insert youtube videos. If you look at that post in his feed, there's a whole youtube video where he goes to it.

      Thanks RockyRaccoon!

       

      That was confusing. Haha...

      Again I'm terribly sorry guys. I didn't realize you couldn't see the video in my status update, and should also know that not everybody checks my blog posts. In hindsight that status should have been WAY more clear.

  5. I'm liking the new forum stuff going on! ... I'd buy a subscription but I already bought like a three year one. X3. 

  6. I've been on a Nintendo DS/3DS kick recently. Dunno why! I've been looking at a few Atari Lynx consoles but they seem a little outta the price ranges I'm willing to pay. Oh well~ Maybe soon though. Belatedly, is there a Atari Lynx 'Flash cart'.

  7. Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy Holidays you crazy cats!

  8. Saw this online. lol idk, I think I draw the line at 'Pixel Underwear' - https://www.maisonpixel.com/

      There are firm butts, squishy butts, clean butts, dirty butts, hairy butts, smooth butts, dog butts, cat butts

       

      My dog's butt looks like JC on the cross.

      My neighbor once had a cat that shit pencils. The poo was ribbed and hard and stuck out like a pencil! Then it would break off. Repeat.

      I have a goddamn cold in the Summertime. It just feels weird to be resting at home when it's 75 degrees & sunny out. I never get colds in the Summertime. It does suck to get sick. Feel a tad better though and will probably do a small bike ride just to get out of the house. The Silver lining is I have been playing a lot on the many emulators on my Wii. Anyway, hope you feel better and less buttlike soon.

  10. Buying an Atari 800XL from masschamber, and bought an Ultimate Cartridge off Ebay. I think this is gonna be a good month.

      I just bought an 800xl, arrives in a few days. Looking for Ultimate Cart and a SIO2PC-USB. Can't wait!

  11. I decided to go ahead and purcahse a two year AtariAge Subscription because I use this place enough and I started feeling like a louse. X3.

  12. Hey guys, might wanna change your Twitter Passwords. Apparently Passwords were stored unmasked recently and I had multiple subsequent attempts to login to my account that I caught thanks to having SMS Verification turned on. z.z

      Oddly I haven't seen any email notification about this, only heard it on local radio (!) that one should change your Twitter password.

      Is there anything the Sega Master System can't do?

    4. RockyRaccoon

      RockyRaccoon

      Sega does what Twitendon't.

  13. Well that was a scary Windows 10 update. Forced my bios to update with PC's BIOS Flash utilitu.

  14. Pondering what console I want to obtain next for my collection that won't also cost me a fortune. :Ia

    1. masschamber

      masschamber

      I've got lots of spares, what are you interested in, I have an amazing intellivision starter set in the market place

    2. RockyRaccoon

      RockyRaccoon

      I think I want something older in that range, but I already own an Intellivision and plenty of games. I'm thinking I might try for an 8-bit Computer like a Commodore 64 or an Atari 800XL/XE model. Something I can pipe a smartphone into through a cassette cable or something, too.

  15. May have a softmodded Xbox for trade soon. It's DVD tray was stuck but I fixed that with a new drive belt today. Running it through some usage to make sure it sticks. Anyone vaugely intrested? Will do a proper post later this month for it probably.

    1. RockyRaccoon

      RockyRaccoon

      I'll keep an eye out!

  16. ...I found Final Fantasy NES in the wild at an old Pawn Shop for three dollars. Label not in good condition. Was rattling inside. Found out rattle was the plastic prongs that hold the board in place. A little super glue fixed that and bam, working great.

      ^ Lol! Oh boy... here come the "classic" memories. FF for NES is considered "rare" now? 1992 was probably the last time I had a copy or cared. lol

    3. masschamber

      masschamber

      Good good .though at first I read it as final fight nes and was thinking awe yeah

    4. RockyRaccoon

      RockyRaccoon

      @save2600: I'd say it's rare to find it 'in the wild' for sub 20 bucks, yeah.

  17. I got my Atari 5200 today and it works great! Came with Super Breakout, and Q*Bert and Frogger. Controller works good. I noooow have the Atari Number Triumvate. Time to concentrate on the two cats now soon. >:I

    1. Cobra Kai

      5200 one of the all time greats

  18. Bought a 7800 from someone on the forums here~ and a bunch of Inty games. Today's a good day. ~_~

    1. GoldLeader

      I'm hoping the Colecovision seller will get back with a price to me soon now, too!

    3. RamrodHare

      You're gonna like the 7800.

  19. It would be nice if I could find a free webhost that doesn't continually screw me in the a$$.

      Azure claims to be free...

    4. RockyRaccoon

      RockyRaccoon

      Do you mean Microsoft Azure? Microsoft Azure is a webapps platform, not webhosting. :-/

  20. I feel a lot better today than I have been. ~_~. Also found the original version of my website back from 2005 on some old burned CDs. X3

    1. GoldLeader

      I gather the jet stream is running along the Rockies. Everything to the east of the ROckies is cold, everything to the west is warm air from the Pacific.

  22. Snagged a Tunnel Runner, Gorf and Mountain King with Manual for about 10 dollars on Ebay as a pack. Good deal. Loved Tunnel Runner and Mountain King when I owned them way back!

    1. RockyRaccoon

      RockyRaccoon

      (All the carts are loose I only have the manual for Mountain King, but still!)

      Tunnel Runner is awesome still today

    3. RockyRaccoon

      Yes it is. It's tense at times!

      and yeah I know~. The games came with the instructions for the system, but no overlays, alas.

    3. GoldLeader

      GoldLeader

      My guess is that sticker was on something else and they just stuck it there...But that is just a guess.

  24. I have 'Love Rollercoaster' stuck in my head for no good reason. /Fuuuuuu---/

    4. RockyRaccoon

      RockyRaccoon

      Original in this case.

  25. Aaaaaaa I won a cheap Intellivison on Ebay with 12 games and the voice module. <3. I love being able to collect again~

      Plus it's attractive woodgrain finish looks nice on a shelf

    3. ls650

      ls650

      The games have a unique look, and often can't be found elsewhere.

    4. RockyRaccoon

      RockyRaccoon

      Yup. I love the woodgrain look of the original console. X3. And yes, you can usually look at an Intellivison game and go 'Yup, that's probably an Inty game.'.
