  1. If it's software emulation and not hardware emulation, it will dump the rom into an emulator. This will make it incompatible with flash cards, EverDrives etc, in which case I'll stick with my original console or emulation. Hopefully, at sometime in the future this will improve .

  2. WOW that's cool. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ‘
  3. Cooters was awesome! Better than I expected, planning to upload a video about it once we return home. Checking out the mall tommorrow, highlights have been downtown, Fleet street brirish pub, Woolworth on 5th (location of historic sit in by black college students for civil rights) and BB kings blues club! LOVED NASHVILLE and was my personal first exposure to southern hospitality. Sadly our week is up soon and we leave early Sat morning to head back home.
  4. Checking out yet another arcade in my travels. This time while staying at Opryland Resort in Nashville I stumbled across this tiny, empty and mostly ignored little ARCADE. Check it out with me.
  5. Honestly, up earlier than I expected after enjoying BB King's blues club downtown last night. But, all up and ready to check out the resort today and likely head over to Cooters a.k.a. the Duke of hazard Museum. Yee Haaaaw! ย ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿ˜Ž

      I've had that opportunity before -- to tag along with my wife on her business trip -- and it's awesome.ย  Enjoy.ย  Make sure your wife gets out to see the sights too in the evening.ย

      No problems there Rick, ๐Ÿ˜‰ Melissa has always been THE PLANNER, a seasoned traveller who had ย already covered half the globe by the time we met! So it's more like, Rob, here is our itinerary and what we will be doing ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜‚ ย So last night we went to downtown to BB King's blues club and today I run around the resort while she's attending conferences and we meet up later and head downtown again tonight, fun city. ๐Ÿบ

  8. Fortunately I have a Harmony cart, that isn't an MP3 Player, it's a...get this....one of two extensions for our LANDLINE telephone, yep we do not have cell phones of any type and still use cordless home landline phones, though it is powered through our SHAW Cable Internet. I mean I do TECHNICALLY have an old iPhone 4 I phone some weeks back but literally use it as just an basic iPOD for the apps on WiFi, the SIM card has no service attached to it, I only keep it in there so there is no NO SIM CARD message lol. But between a home landline and devices with internet apps, facetime and messenger that is about all the communications we need ๐Ÿ˜†I like knowing when we go out or to an event or just get away from home the RARE phone call we might get (I think we average 2 a month between the two of us) can wait as a message to respond to at our convenience when we get back home. It's funny because the world tried to ignore you if you don't have some kind of cellphone, like activating or verifying services always wants to "Text" your cell, less and less there are options to call a landline instead, so I guess we are hold outs in the cellphone revolution but I am OK with that.
  9. ๐Ÿ˜ŽTwo great examples of classic portable audio devices sitting on the top inside a recycle bin today. ๐Ÿ˜ฎWow, a Sony Walkman like I briefly had back in the day and a portable CD PLAYER by TDK, man I am old to remember how cool these would of been to own at retail release.๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿป Might do a video about them.
  10. Ouya ?....WE HARDLY KNEW YA !!!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜œ Er, I don't own one but I just had to say that.
  11. You know I had no interest in getting a PlayStation Classic myself, mostly because my collecting days have ended, maybe one day I would accept one in some sort of trade because frankly I WAS tempted if I could have found one in my area for a reasonable price, sadly I never did BUT considering the mods and hacks that can been done I certainly would not pass on one under the right conditions, sure as is and for the launch price it was not great but for those who do not mind a little tinkering getting one for a good price is a no brainer and aside from other emulation and hacks I just seen THIS video from a source that has been legit, not a bad way to play Nintendo DS titles ! TEASER of Nintendo DS Running on Playstation Classic - COMING SOON! | DEMO
  12. As I continue to go through my collection I find so many items I did not even realize I had or I overlooked because of lack of interest, a side effect of buying large lots and packages over the years for specific items you tend to end up with many things you would have never purposely acquired. THIS is a good example, I have very few original Snes games since I have an Everdrive Cart but I definitely had no idea I had this one, I don't even recall seeing it originally in whatever package it came with ๐Ÿ˜› ๐ŸบMAN I loved using my NES Advantage joystick to play Zelda and Metroid back in the day. I found THIS Camerica "TurboTronic" Joystick I acquired somewhere but have never used before, will be interesting to see how it compares, or doesn't as the case may be. Anyone use one before? ๐Ÿ˜Ž
  13. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿค”New quick video ! Looking through some loose NES cartridges I noticed this name written on with permanent marker, so being late at night I thought I would upload this quick little video asking "Did YOU ever write your name on your cartridges?" - As collectors we often come across them, often research how to remove them but I did make me think about how people did this, sometimes it was kids who did not know better and would mark everything they owned in some fashion, maybe because we did not think of decreasing value or ever parting with our precious games? I sometimes wonder about the people who owned them previously, why they sold or traded them etc. ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿป
  14. As a kid I took a bottle of Flintstones Chew-able vitamins fromย home and ate 1/2 a bottles worth by the time I walked to school.....and promptly threw up....true story.....๐Ÿ˜œ

      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.

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

      @greenweenย 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.

      R.I.P. old friend. Glad they were able to get everyone together one last time in these new movies.

  16. That dude (aka Eric Butts) knew exactly what he was doing I am pretty sure. ๐Ÿ˜‰Over reacting / getting emotional watching trailers is one of his gimmicks, it got him TONS of views and sweet ad revenue as well as attention from celebs including Mark Hamill, and Gary Whitta and already he has been interviewed and supported by his local news as well as the BBS and his twitter description "Iโ€™m the guy who cries to Star Wars trailers! " - While the hate is unwarranted and sad I suggest he knew EXACTLY what the result would be, there are plenty more people standing up for him and being upset on his behalf, Eric is just fine with the reaction and thick skinned, a direct quote from Eric. TO BE CLEAR - It does not excuse the hate I just believe Eric anticipated it and used it to his advantage and GOOD FOR HIM lol. It's LEAVE BRITTANY ALONE all over again. ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ‘

      I see Earthworm Jim made the list! I'm as excited for that as anything.ย That's great news that they are adding more games!

  19. Thanks, I got imessage and facetime going on it (they say not activated but runs fine ๐Ÿ˜› ) this will be good because end of May we are going to Nashville for a week, business trip Melissa only accepted because they agreed I could go along lol, so during day she will go to conference and I will hang at resort and surrounding areas (going to check out the Dukes of Hazard Museum) so this should come in handy instead of dragging the iPad around.
