  1. So here's my random thought of the day...

     

    I'm driving in my car today, and the Black Eyed Peas "I've got a feeling" comes on. I've heard the song a hundred times (that's not really a good thing), but never the very beginning. This time, as the first eight bars play out, my brain goes "Holy Cow! I know this sound... it's from a game!"

     

    Of course, I couldn't come up with the connection, but instead was just stuck with a severse sense of deja vu.

     

    Now, a few hours later, I hear the song on the radio again (so much for the "no repeat workday"), and this time it clicks. The first eight bars totally remind me of the beginning of the giant walker level in R-Type Delta. It's not a perfect match, and I'm obviously not saying that they ripped off R-Type, but it thought it was interesting how my brain made this particular connection. (I was stuck on that level for a long time, so I had heard the same opening bars over and over and over again)

     

    Has anyone else experienced similar sudden flashes of deja vu around video game music?

     

     

    I made a simalar post the other day. theres a song out now that is called "tik-tok" and it sounds like super mario bros., of the same sound most NES music makes in thier games. exact rip off.


  2. in the desription i provided, it does say there are differences between the nes and arcade ports.

     

    I think you misread. I was restating the differences that I mentioned before (that I purposely mentioned without specifics) in reply to another poster. I'm well aware of the differences.

     

    well, the best way to resolve this is to get a screen shot of the original opening screen with the copyright date on it.

     

    Or you could just look up sites like KLOV or Google and search for screens, so this wouldn't need to be resolved. If you did that before, you would know that it has a copyright date of 1986.

     

     

    things that make you go hmmmmmmm!


  3. So is Vs SMB the same game. like the Play Choice 10s? I'd assume it's not different or upgraded or something.

    I am totally surprised that I haven't heard about this before now

     

    Vs. SMB is not the exact same game as the NES SMB1 or the playchoice 10 SMB. It's similar, but it's harder than the NES version with some level differences, 200 coins for a 1up, and one of the levels replaced by a level from SMB2J aka Lost Levels.

     

    And that's different from most Arcade ports to consoles vs real arcade versions how?

     

    It was said in multiple posts from multiple posters that Vs. Super Mario Bros from 1986 was ported to the arcade (and it came out after SMB and either after or around the same time as SMB2J), so I don't see a point in asking this now. Why does it have to be different anyway? It was asked if Vs. SMB was the same game as the NES and Playchoice versions of the game, not if it was different from most arcade ports to consoles. As far as I know, the Playchoice version is the same as the NES one and doesn't have the differences in Vs. SMB.

     

    Many home ports tend to be somewhat, or at least slightly easier in some respects than the Arcade originals (or have easier difficulty settings), and significant alterations compared to the arcade.

     

    I don't see how this even matters, or how the conclusion was made that this was not known. Important differences like level differences (which includes the smaller platforms and subtle level changes), 200 coins, and the level replaced by a Lost Levels level were mentioned and since, the NES and, as far as I know, the Playchoice don't have this.

     

    We dont know. (about the arcade release of Vs. Super Mario Bros)

     

    Multiple sites list a 1986 date for Vs. SMB. SMB FC/NES was first released in 1985, so it's clear that the NES game came out first.

     

    in the desription i provided, it does say there are differences between the nes and arcade ports.


  4. Vs. Super Mario Bros. (also known in promotional materials as Vs. Mario's Adventure), is nearly a separate game in its own right. This game, one of several games made for Nintendo's NES-based arcade cabinet, the Nintendo Vs. Unisystem (and its variant, the Nintendo Vs. Dualsystem), is based on Super Mario Bros., and has identical gameplay. The stages, however, are different; the early stages are subtly different, with small differences like the omission of 1-up mushrooms or other hidden items, narrower platforms and more dangerous enemies, but later stages are changed entirely. These changes have a net effect of making Vs. Super Mario Bros. much more difficult than the original Super Mario Bros. Many of these later, changed stages reappeared in the Japanese Super Mario Bros. 2.

    Um news flash! Super mario bros. is NOT and arcade game you are thinking of Mario Bros. which has been mentioned previously. :roll:

     

    -Darren-

    Darren,You are wrong. I back up CARTRIDGE STEALER's statement about Super Mario Bros. being an arcade game.

     

    Super Mario Bros was an arcade game, but it was released after Super Mario Bros. was released on the Nes. My younger brother and I played Super Mario Bros. as an arcade game back around 1988 matter of fact. My younger brother and I played it at a Pizza Hut. Some Pizza Huts at the time a small amount of arcade cabinets.

     

    I played the arcade version of Super Mario Bros. in 1988 because I remembered my parents telling my younger brother and I play an arcade game while our pizza was being made.

     

    Yeah, id have to say SMB does not count since it was on the NES first, and a series of "VS" arcade were made from popular NES games.

     

    BTW, I miss when Pizza Hut had arcade machines!! Haha, I remember going there to redeem my bookit club personal pan pizza and play me some Mortal Kombat when I was in school.

     

     

    We dont know. there was a debate on which came out first, and it was never resolved. it may have come out after the NES or before. but nevertheless, it was an arcade game.

    yup....your exactly right. it was after the nes's debut. I actually was quite good at the arcade version because of the nes's version.


  7. no, the add is not mine. I live in massapequa, once home to joey buttafucco, herru seinfeld and twisted sister. oh yea, the great all american burger! I am in nassau county. the poster is from suffolk county.

     

    Im old school. I dont post adds on craigs list, or newspapers or on telephone poles. I go out to garage sales and get my treasures.

     

    I do generic searches on craiglist for things and this one popped up and I read it and I could smell the bullshit through the computer!


  8. WANTED Nintendo nes (the original) video games, controllers and full systems.

     

    I just pulled my old Nintendo out of the closet and im looking to pick up some old games. Im not a dealer im just looking to see if anyone needs some extra cash and wants to sell me there unwanted games. Im also interested in full systems even if they no longer work. If the power button flashes or it doesnt turn on at all. I know how to fix them, so i would love them as well.

     

    I have also found my old Atari 2600. So i would be interested in any Atari games or consoles as well.

     

    I have had some good luck on Craigs list buying COMIC BOOKS so i figured i would try out games as well. I am also interested in Comic collections (even 90s and newer books) that most collectors have no interest in. But if you are selling comics of the last 20 years please dont expect big money. I will gladly buy any comics you may have. But most books from the last 20 years or so go for about 5 cents to on the very high side a $1. YES there are a few books worth more and i will pay a fair price for them if you have them.

     

    So if you have any Nintendo nes or Atari 2600 games/systems/controllers/power cords or comics. Please feel free to email me with what you have and what you are looking to get for them. Thanks

     

     

    P.S. im MOSTLY looking for Nintendo NES games and accesories (i need controllers). The Atari i need the power adaptor/tv hookup and any games. I have multiple controllers for the Atari But if you only want to sell a complete console i am open if the price is rite. Same gos for the NES i will buy full systems if the price is rite.

  9. Nerd is a term often bearing a derogatory connotation or stereotype, that refers to a person who passionately pursues intellectual activities, esoteric knowledge, or other obscure interests that are age-inappropriate rather than engaging in more social or popular activities. Therefore, a nerd is often excluded from physical activity and considered a loner by peers, or will tend to associate with like-minded people.

     

    The word geek is a slang term, noting individuals as "a peculiar or otherwise odd person, especially one who is perceived to be overly obsessed with one or more things including those of intellectuality, electronics, etc."[1] Formerly, the term referred to a carnival performer often billed as a wild man whose act usually includes biting the head off a live chicken, bat, snake or bugs. The 1976 edition of the American Heritage Dictionary included only the definition regarding geek shows.

     

    This word comes from English dialect geek, geck: fool, freak; from Low German geck, from Middle Low German. The root geck still survives in Dutch gek: crazy, and in the Alsatian word Gickeleshut: geek's hat, used in carnivals.[2]


  10. This looks "staged", meaning that he (the seller) probably has friends helping him out with the bids.

     

    recently, my friends brother was hired to do demo work on the Gotti's boys tanning salon and the contractor took the sign and put it on ebay. my friend called me and told me about it and I did some promo'ing for it and it got up $1000. I called him, joking about my cut since I helped him. He said that his 2 brothers were bidding on it themselves to get the other into bidding it.

     

    aslo, I dont know if this auction has any credit card confirmation requirements because if not, anyone could bid on it with a fake account.

  11. What is the point of this thread anymore?

     

    The Craigslist add did not specify a price, just that he was looking for a game. Then you go and send him a bogus reply and act all surprised when it devolves.

     

    This is why I avoid Craigslist. We all know that it is becoming the scummy back alley of on line trading. Your posts here just prove that you are a part of the problem.

     

    I get on Atariage to interact and learn about games and systems - not this stuff.

     

     

    his wasnt the only ad. there were 5 of them up there. one guy even offered $100 for the game.


  12. Wow what's with the Italian stab on a topic like story telling? That's not even a base for an Italian joke. It's not like you said you were hairy or loud or anything :roll: :P .

     

     

    I'm Italian BTW.

     

    he replied, again:

     

    you are a fucking idiot walmart didnt even exsist when this game was made stupid ginnie, fuck your mother soul, she would be pissed that you could make up a bull shit story like this and disgrace the stupid italian community too, again fuck your mother and fuck you

     

    my email address is [email protected] so he assumes Im italian. Im half italian and half argentinian.

     

    I replied back:

     

    walmart has been around since 1962 you fuckin jerk-off!!!! again, your never going to get a copy of my MINT IN BOX game now! youre a loser!
