    The trifecta.

    Finally played! If this was the only game I had for my TG-16 when I owned one I would have been very happy. First time playing this game, ever. Fun game. Now I want a TG-16 again if just for this game. 12,516,100 points.

    My personal PCE favorite look is the dark gray (or is it black?) Core II with the orange colored text. But, I agree, mod one with the TG-16 Logo on it. Priceless!

    Anyone have an Apple Pippin?

    Does anyone have an Appla Pippin? I was thinking of adding it to the collection, but wanted to know if it was worth the price it seems to be valued at? Is it more of a game system or computer? Best games? I've heard mixed reviews on it. I just sold a Macintosh performa 200 to someone in my area and he showed me pics of his pippin. Hes both a video game and apple collector. Said it's a fun machine/computer. But I'm just not too sure.

    Ootake works a lot better than MESS. Thumbs up for this suggestion.

    PC Engine has an expansion slot too! PC Engine and TurboGrafx-16 both connect to basically the same CD system. There's really would've been no functional downside to marketing the smaller PC Engine design in the US. It would have been so small and sleek and high tech. The first time I ever got to play a TurboGrafx-16 or see one in person was at a Brookstone or Sharper Image type of store. I was there on a Saturday and they had a table set up with a few TurboGrafx-16 consoles and monitors along each side of the table. There must've been at least six systems running. That left me with the impression that it's an advanced high-tech system. I can't imagine how out of this world it would've been to see something that was a generational leap past the NES churning out this kind of gameplay on a tiny console the size of two NES cartridges stacked on top of each other. That's just so cool to me.

    I'm so tempted to take a PC Engine and have it customized in all black with the neon TurboGrafx-16 logo and build that "what if" system I just spoke about.

    It's amazing when you look at the size of the Japanese PC Engine systems in comparison to the TurboGrafx-16. I love the TurboGrafx-16 and feel so fortunate that I grew up appreciating this little console. But when I look at how small the PC Engine is I see a huge missed opportunity. I can't imagine how incredibly advanced that would've looked at the time. Can you imagine walking into Toys 'R' Us, going up to that glass case and seeing one of these small, sharp, cutting edge consoles staring back at you? That's such a ninja move, huge power in a little punch. Give me this, but in "TurboGrafx-16 black":

    No worries at all. I had one eye on you and the other on my beloved Portland Trail Blazers finally taking down the dreaded Utah Jazz. So I was silent running.

    Cool! Thank you. I'm the master at fudging ball #1, this will really help. I'll see if MESS allows this button combo to work. Frankly, I'm getting tired of that skeleton face laughing at me.

    I finally got a TG-16!

    I did see a good one go on ebay (almost complete...missing that back cover thing) for about $120 shipped. That's about as good as it gets price-wise. Keep on looking and hopefully one turns up for a price you like.

    Hey Justin, I was watching you last night, and I have a quick question. I noticed that when you do badly on ball #1, you quickly restart the game and try again. How do you do that? It may just be that I'm missing a button on emulation.

    New personal best: 107,287,300 Thanks to @Atari Creep for coming out to the livestream on Instagram tonight and watching me play for a while. We've been doing that a lot lately and it's been fun! Heads up about this score: You can do it too! You may have noticed playing this game you can hit things that award you "Special Points". When I was playing the game tonight, something interesting happened when my pinball hit the left side of the screen. I think it was on the 2nd board, the middle one. I hit something or did something on the left, and the game awarded me 100,000,000 specialty points. This was, for the most part, one of my better-than-average games, plus the bonus award. If that bonus award exists, others must exist too. Let's keep playing and see what we can come up with!

    Anyone have an Apple Pippin?

    I had a Pippin. It was charcoal black. On the controller it said "@world" where it says "atmark" in the photo above. I don't know what the difference is. I bought it in 2000 and I think I sold it in 2011. I thought of it as being just as much of a Bandai console as Apple. If it had an Apple logo on it I probably would still have it, if only for an interesting piece of history. It never really fit in alongside my Newton or 20th Anniversary Macintosh. This was just before Apple became "cool" again. Pippin was one of those Gil Amelio things that Steve Jobs saw when he came back and probably thought was stupid and shook his head at. Had Apple introduced a dedicated video game system during the age of iPod and sold it in Apple stores it would've been a big deal. Pippin never benefited from any of that, it was just a little too early. I only played it a few times, I found it to be quite bland. The best way I can describe it is to say that I had WebTV at the time (remember that!) and Pippin felt exactly like trying to play computer games on WebTV and then go "hey look I'm playing video games now!" Pippin felt very much like one of those late '90s attempts to merge home computers and the internet with television. Imagine a world where you could answer an email on your TV screen, connect with friends, watch Seinfeld and explore the world of Multimedia! I only had 3 games, one was a racing game called "Racing Days". I absolutely love racing games. From the jewel case "Racing Days" looked pretty lame, and it was. Think of "Need for Speed" on 3DO, with the awful frame rate of Redline Racing on Jaguar. I wanted to like it, but it felt like a bland computer game and I'd much rather play Ridge Racer, Sega Rally Championship or Crusin' USA. That was the only game I really played at all. Then there was a game that was kind of like Myst and actually seemed very cool and mysterious. I forget the name of it, but it was like you were finding your way around and unravelling a mystery. My third game was a Power Rangers game which I had no interest in whatsoever. I bought the unit used and it came with all three games. My suggestion is if you're an Apple or Bandai fanatic and you have the opportunity to add something really unique to your collection, do it. Otherwise don't dive down that rabbit hole. It's not like TurboGrafx-16 or Lynx or Neo-Geo where there are some really great games to play and enjoy that seem to get better with time. This is more like WebTV.

    Bill & Ted 3

    It's one thing to have a delayed sequel when the main characters were already adults in the original. I'm not sure how Bill & Ted 3 can work when the originals featured them as immature teens. If you mature them, they lose a lot of the fun of the first two movies, but if they are still just as immature in 50 year old bodies, then it becomes kind of sad. Don't get me wrong: I like the Bill & Ted characters and I want this movie to end up being good, but I'm not sure how they can pull it off. Personally I think Ghostbusters 3 will have a better chance pulling off the late sequel thing. Oh, and I kinda liked the Robocop reboot.
