    Oh, it's really good in Miami right now.  70's during the day, 60's at night.

    TrekMD got a reaction from Justin in Howard Scott Warshaw’s video game was blamed for single-handedly sinking a multibillion-dollar market. But the true story is more complicated.   
    This is a fallacy that keeps on getting repeated. The crash came for a multitude of reasons and ET certainly was not the worst games ever.  There are plenty other really horrid titles on the 2600 from companies that tried to get easy money from video games.  ET wasn't perfect but it could be played and it was rather involved for a 2600 game.  You just needed to read the manual.  A bit more polish could have made the game better and, in fact, someone has done this and fixed the issues with the game to make it more fun to play.

    I just purchased the digital version.  If a color print version is released, I'll get it as well.

    It looks like Towerfall ended this morning.  Sorry!  Keep your eyes out though.  I think they change the free game every day.

    Wow, I'm impressed by your dedication! This is no draw, you've definitely earned the win!
    Has anyone figured out a pattern for the instant replays? I hardly saw any later on in the game, but maybe they don't trigger if you finish a level too quickly.

    TrekMD got a reaction from StormSurge in Modern Gaming Rant   
    This does suck about modern games.  They are dependent on servers to work.  So, now this is happening with a mainstream system like the Xbox.  It happened with OUYA and we'll have to see who is next.  There will be no "retro" gaming for future generations with this model.

    I'm not surprised by that.  Given how the last season ended, I'd expect the show to be totally different.  Pandora's box has been opened!
