  1. Today
  2. Yeah... those brain guys... how do you get away from the homing missile things? Or can you? Do you just have to shoot them before the fire?
  3. Good lord...haven't updated this thread in months! We apologize for the lateness. We have switched to a 3-week schedule due to a little thing called life. Unfortunately, this coincided with the 4th of July holiday. But nonetheless...here's the new episode! http://fab4it.com/piefactory/audio/PFP_Episode098.mp3
  4. Yesterday
  5. I'm going to try both emulation and OG hardware with my new Robotron controller by @RetroGameBoyz just for fun. Sure there will be a huge difference.
  6. Yep, I'll give it a shot in emulation. I've been playing a little of the Robotron 2084 arcade game in MAME with a Playstation 2 controller, using the two thumbsticks for control. Seems to be working okay, so hoping I can get it to work here, but we'll see.
  7. HAHAH How did I know this was coming??? Awesome.
  8. That's my plan...emulation. I'll probably give it a shot later this week. Great game.
  9. Wow, I'd love to try this on a 7800 emulator but I'm not sure I could pull it off.
  10. Episode 17 of Retro With Marco airs TONIGHT at 9pm ET!

    I'm putting the final touches on tonight's episode, which will include:

    1. High score and speedrun shoutouts
    2. Recap of the Retro World Series at the Southern Fried Gaming Expo
    3. GameStop going retro?


    Tune in tonight at 9pm ET / 6pm PT!




    See you then!

  11. Last week

  17.  Resolved the issue with the main part of the website and will have a new Squad Challenge up today!

  18. ⚠️ Having an issue with the main part of the website (not the forums) Likely Wordpress related. Working on resolving this. Will try to have the new High Score Squad Challenge up later tonight as well!

  19. Related, but not related: Earlier this year, McD's had "Avengers" toys that I thought were pretty cool. They also had a promotion with our local sports team for free 6 piece nuggets every time the team scored 100 points. So, my go-to the day after a Blazers win was to go to McD's and get the free nuggies and a hamburger happy meal. I ended up with about 5 or six of the Avenger toys. And also a pretty tasty lunch for about $3.50. I like how the happy meals come with apples, which is a little healthier...but it is a bit embarrassing to order a happy meal as a grown adult. Since the season ended, I haven't been to McD's
  20. That is a really cool item right there.
  21. Have shipped the box today to Chase, ready to go! I added a few things to make it interesting
  22. Yes this was part of the 2017 McDonald's Mario toy set. I've got a few if them. Nowadays when McDonald's toys come out in about a few weeks the thrift stores get over run with them.
