    I have that. It's great. Only downside is it doesn't save high scores. Later models do.

    I am SOOOO jealous of that Paper Mario. I have been coveting that game for years, but the prices it goes for online would make your eyes bleed.

    7800 Arcade Proline controllers

    I would be embarrassed to attach my name to something like that, let alone sell one (and for nearly $100 at that). Someone could write a 'How Not To' book based on those photos, or 'How To Waste $40 in Materials'. Damn. What a box of 'fail'. From poor layout design and construction (destroying a mounting post for the shell for a button that doesn't even fit properly?) to complete lack of wire management, to poor soldering skills (wires already falling off? Looks like he used general purpose acid core solder - same stuff used on pipes!). Even grade school shop projects don't look this bad. And on top of everything, you get a used paddle controller, instead of a new one from Best Electronics. You did a nice job trying to polish that turd, crossbow, but as the saying goes, you can put lipstick on a pig, but it's still a pig (or was it a wig on a pig?).

  7. K's score of 39k is amazing to me. I played for hours at a time and always topped out right at about 19k.

    Brian's Man Cave

    So looking at your shellf, I'm assuming Kirk and Spcok fought over the trophy, but since it ended without a knockout, they asked Pike to declare the winner...Awesome!

Congrats to @kamakazi20012 & runner up @RickR a big thanks to @Justin for these squad challenges for the opportunity for me to discover why I hate this game. and to@Atari Creep you's be welcome to come by & play it at my place if you ever head up North a bit. mebbe give me some pointers :)

    The No Swear Gamer

    Thank you to everyone who took part in my live stream last week! I plan to do more in the future, maybe twice a month, but can't say for sure when. Most likely it would be on certain Saturdays around 11 pm est. I'll try to post on fb and twitter when I do.
  23. I'm a big fan of Easter Eggs in games. Of course, Adventure is considered one of the all time greats: And it was awesome how Yar and Indian Jones are hidden in ET on the 2600 But my favorite might be Deadly Dogs in Dig Dug on the Intellivision. It's basically a free bonus game! What are your favorite Easter Eggs?

    XBOX LIVE Gets Crossed

    I agree. But if they stick with the original name of the service I can understand why since the whole "Live" aspect started with the original XBOX. Over the past year or two they have made some changes to the LIVE service on PC and XBOX (changed XBOX Points to Microsoft Rewards, etc.) so it would make sense to change the name to Microsoft LIVE for non-XBOX systems. LIVE's email service has also become a part of the Outlook family as well. The one thing that I applaud Microsoft for, something I never thought I would ever say or think of, is trying their hardest to bring cross platform gaming into a reality. Online gaming has always been behind a wall and only for the platform the game is being played on. I believe it is about time that it shouldn't matter which machine you play a game on in an online environment. There's no longer any difference in how online games are presented, and current-gen consoles, not including Switch, are X86 architecture similar to modern PCs. Switch is more like an Android/iOS tablet and I know XBOX has tried a few things in that department that have worked. It all makes sense and it's about time to bring gamers together regardless of what system they play on.

    Thrift Store Finds

    One of the best plug n plays you can get right there

    Thrift Store Finds

    This item is pretty old, but I've been looking for one for a long time with no luck. It's the Ms. Pac Man plug and play and it has the twisty knob for Pole Position control. It also has the little game key slot, but no cartridge (dang it). It had really old and dead batteries within, but I wasn't able to open it at Goodwill. I took a chance (only $5), and when I got home, the batteries were ancient. One had leaked, but not bad. I got it cleaned up pretty easily and it works fine.
