  2. !!!!!! I cannot believe that tomorrow, Sat Feb 11th, it is my Birthday, ok well, I can believe that, what I cannot believe is I am turning 49! HOLY CRAP !

  3. You know it saddens me that SEGA has never matched the quality / quantity / fun that they generated back in the 8-16 bit era. 😐

      I might be interested in purchasing or trading for one of those Dreamcasts if you ever consider letting one go. I bought one the day they came out but let it go many years ago. It's one of the few systems I don't currently have. I was living those VMU Dreams in the late '90s.

      I love Dreamcast. Sadly mine is starting to get finicky about reading discs. It won't play half my games anymore.

      The only Sega hardware I felt was a waste was the Sega CD and 32X add-ons.  Sonic CD was the only Sega CD game I could find in my area worth anything and Star Wars was fun on the 32X.  I never found any of the other games for these that were worth the purchase price.  Well I did find Sol-Fease on the Sega CD which was a fun shooter and had the six pack on CD as well but nothing spectacular.

      Saturn I enjoyed with Daytona, Virtua Cop, Sonic Blast, WipeOut, Tomb Raider, D, Darius, and The Horde.  My only wish is that it could have got the same third party games that PlayStation got.  It might have too if Sega didn't shoot themselves in the foot releasing the system too early.

      Dreamcast I absolutely love!  It was a game changer, underappreciated, undervalued, hardware.  It set standards and started the whole online gaming aspect.  I got a PS2 only after Sega left the hardware part of gaming.  And that was only to get Gran Turismo 3 A Spec.  I supported Dreamcast spiritually.  I wanted it to succeed.  It must have if Sega couldn't keep up with the demands and pre orders.

  4. I don't and likely will never, own an Atari Jaguar....I think I am OK with that. 😜

      I no longer own a Amiga CD32, but would love to own ANYTHING AMIGA,however that is unlikely at this point as well. 😢Oddly, I DO own 3DO and CD-i consoles...because the world is cruel. 🤔😜

    3. Justin

      Justin

      So why CD32, 3DO and CD-i but no room for Jaguar?

    4. MaximumRD

      MaximumRD

      Not about room, well not just about room, it just turned out that way while I was still actively collecting, at this point I could say the same about many consoles / handhelds / computers. 😉When I still HAD a CD32 it was because of my love for Commodore /Amiga, CD-i & 3DO because I happened upon great deals and I was curious since I never had much exposure to them. I never came upon a Jaguar let alone a good deal on one while I was actively collecting so at this point with no funds left for my hobby while out of space long ago (lately I am contributing more to our electronics recycling bin 😜) it just seems so unlikely, on top of the fact Jag stuff seems to go for a premium now, the few games I might be interested in just don't warrant it. To be clear, I am not "hating" on the Jag, I just literally come to terms with he fact I will likely never own one and I have accepted that, which is all I was trying to convey with my original comment 🍺

  5.  I cannot believe it, just after my video the other day and I said I never find anything good in electronic recycling during holidays? Today I found a laptop! Guess someone got a new one for Christmas, in take, great condition, Silver 14 or 15' HP Pavilion! Of course could not log in, don't know specs yet but it came with WINDOWS 8 so already better than the old HP Pavilion I was playing with Linux. Will make a great secondary laptop. Looked it up and running recovery mode on it NOW.

      That's incredible. Why would somebody just throw that out? You know that might be good just for doing MAME and other stuff.

    3. MaximumRD

      MaximumRD

      Considering the timing I suspect someone got a nice new powerful laptop for Xmas 😛 Ah well, fine by me, they literally sat it gently on top with the power supply right beside it. Guess they figured nobody could log in anyway but hey in the wrong hands....fortunately for them instead of bothering to access the hard drive by various methods to bypass the login password or hook up to an externally to look at the files, I just looked up how to access HP RECOVERY and after setting it to original stock install of WIn 8 since it is a valid license I was able to update free to Win 10. Not the fastest CPU but it is still better than the previous old HP laptop I found a few years back (I use that with Linux MINT). There are a lot of older retirees here as well so who knows? Maybe someone bought gramps a new laptop and he just placed the old one in the bin. I figure better I got it than someone else or having it actually end up at the recycle depot 😛 

    4. kamakazi20012

      kamakazi20012

      Let's see.  AMD architecture, Radeon GPU, and 4 GB of RAM?  That sounds like a basic gaming laptop setup.  Would be perfect for some Steam games and definitely MAME.  Amazing what you find in that recycle bin.  Just goes to show you that good things come to those that wait.

  9. Spent 6+ hours overnight in Kelowna Hospital Emergency. Woke up around 1:30am this past Friday night experiencing severe upper back that not only made sleep impossible but greatly hindered my upper mobility, as well interfered with my breathing, deep breathes inhaling was very painful and laying flat just about impossible. Long story short an effect of Postural Kyphosis. Years of bad posture and slouching likely due to my low self esteem and bouts of depression.

      @DeLorean I do not beleive so, it was brought to attention of the public with terrific viral marketing convincing the studio that fans wanted it and wanted a "proper" Deadpool movie and it worked out for all involved big time.

      @TheProfessor Hah Nope! The people who are eligible are the nominees I made and grubgun (the guy I tied with) made. I was eligible last month because the last winner Kitt171 nominated me and so it goes. Thanks though. Last time I was eligible was several years ago but I was up against a very popular Youtuber that thrashed me lol. I suspect I wont be up again anytime soon.

  13. lol SO JUST now hit 4000 "subscribers" on Youtube, the last few 100 due to a bigger Youtuber mentioning MaximumRD in a recent video. That is cool I guess though 90% don't actually watch my content which is fine as I will never monetize. NOW if I can just get out of this funk and feel like making videos again...

  15. Loving the new site the more I use it. In my video game art thread I noticed how easy it is to upload multiple images /attachments now. Starting to really see the benefits! Great work JUSTIN and all involved! Atari. io is better than ever! 🍻😘

    1. Justin

      Justin

      THANK YOU ROB!! That means so much coming from you. We're very fortunate to have you as part of the forums. I'm glad you like it! We're all averse to change in some way. I think the more you get used to the new site though the more you'll love it. Uploading is better, personal profiles are really cool, member blogs look awesome, and the "Topics" box on the top right shows shows topics with new unread content, not just "new" topics. This feels like a big leap ahead! 🕹️

      THANK YOU!! I hope it never stops impressing you. It really has turned out to be a great site. Just takes a little getting used to.

  16. Random memory - Back in the day as a kid I would be thankful of 2600 carts in ANY condition even with torn or missing labels, I guess I was more creative and had more time in those days as I would literally create new labels with sticky paper, colored pencils and I would even cover them over top with transparent sticky tape in an attempt to preserve / protect my work. While they were hardly magnificent works of art they were creative and original and damn I wish I had kept them over the years.

    1. kamakazi20012

      kamakazi20012

      I picked up some like that. My Tutankham has no label. It is sometimes cheaper to get those since some people turn an eye from a game that has poor or no labels. But it is a good opportunity to get titles cheaper.

    2. LeeJ07

      LeeJ07

      Hey, if a game works, I could care less if the label sucks. My copies of Adventure, Galaxian, and Swordquest Earthworld all have ratty labels, but they work perfectly fine.

    3. kamakazi20012

      kamakazi20012

      Those bad labels are just a sign of love ;)

  22. If anyone would be so cool to throw me a vote in youtuber of the month so at least I would have a bit less embarrassment when Grubgun takes it by a landslide I would really appreciate it thanks. Here is link to youtube video, please just post a comment that you vote for MaximumRD

      This is sad and frustrating. I'm a huge Twin Peaks fan. Thankful they brought some resolution to Hank and Norma's storyline but wish they'd stop wasting time and start filming Season 4. And now this.

    2. greenween

      greenween

      I was shocked to get home last night and see this. I agree Justin. Seeing Ed and Norma get closure was one of my many favorite parts of The Return.  Sadly, at this point I can't imagine season 4 will ever happen. Of course, Lynch is capable of anything.

    3. Justin

      Justin

      @greenween They keep hinting at it. Showtime wants to do it. Kyle MacLachlan says Lynch has more stores. Lynch hints at it. They need to do it and go make it now before there's no one left.

  23. WELL GANG FYI - MUCH to my surprise I was just messaged by Chris aka NovaBug, I TIED for YOUTUBER of the month, which is incredible considering how rarely I upload these days. TO BE CLEAR I TIED with Grubgun which is fine as I totally expected to lose by a landslide but thanks to my begging and all of you who took pity on me and voted I tied, we each got 36 votes :)
