      One of the greatest.

      He was one of my favorites. RIP :(

  4. Honestly had no plan to replace the old Toshiba 27' Tube Standard def until it literally died but that decision was made for us when relatives visited a few weeks ago and bought us a new 43" 4k Sharp TV. Gotta admit it is nice.

      How does it handle older systems? Does it accept a 240p signal?

    2. DCG


      480p Tubes are still better for retro games, but 4K is better for TV shows. You need both

    3. atarilbc


      I agree, but if you don't have space for both it becomes an issue. My tubes are in the garage and I have a few "beater" consoles that I keep hooked up out there. My "good" consoles are in the house and I use an older Samsung HD TV that still has s-video and component, despite being 1080p. It has a 4:3 aspect ratios setting too and most retro games look great on it. When that dies, it will be an upgrade and I know that some 4K TVs do not play well with the oldest consol...

  5. You nailed it, Sega Spartan? More like Sega Fartin am I right? ENOUGH ALREADY. No amount of petitions or signatures by Sega Fans is going to make the current Sega take notice or give a shit, they are too busy lending their license and IP's to cheap Chinese handheld and clone manufacturers for quick cashing in on Sega fans nostalgia.

  6. 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.

      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.

      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.

      Those bad labels are just a sign of love ;)

      Sad news indeed.

  14. RIP Joan Lee I suspect it will not be long before Stan passes now, that is usually the case after the spouse dies and such a old couple have been together for so many year. RIP Joan Lee http://www.newsarama.com/35212-joan-lee-passes-away-at-93.html

    1. Rowsdower70


      My wife and I just had this same discussion sadly. Stan had already given up the convention circuit because of his health.
