  1. A bit of a different one here. Browsing Goodwill's auction site. Going to definitely be doing more of these streams and videos as it was pretty fun. Going to edit more stuff out of the next one, though... too many slow parts rewatching the video...
  2. Been a while since I posted anything in here... we've moved, so the game "room" setup is different. Need to put out a new video. Anywho, here's some pics from some recent pickups... A "rare" Activision game, Cosmic Commuter. My first boxed 2600 game, Kaboom! (I already had a loose copy of Kaboom, but now I have one in the box, too.) And a couple of more common titles that I didn't have. Back in the day, I had a real, honest to goodness photo-taken-of-the-TV-and-sent-to-Activision patch for River Raid. I'm nowhere near as good at it now.
  3. Hey there from a fellow Texan! (I also had a Pong unit... well... clone I think... back in the day, but it's loong gone.) Hope you were okay during the big freeze!
  4. Mine's not too exciting... a laptop. I have built my own desktops in the past, but for a while now I've been a laptop guy. It's a Dell G5 5590 Intel Core i7-9750H CPU @ 2.60GHz 2.59 GHz 16.0 GB Ram 256GB SSD and 1TB HDD (also have a 1TB external HDD I took out of an old laptop) It's done better than I thought it would. Runs Cyberpunk with only the problems the game comes with. lol Pics are of the laptop and my background image (photo by me) and the desk environment. (I cleaned it a little to take this pic, but it's always a mess of wires.)
  5. It's kinda become a soda review channel. lol... I need to make more gaming related content.
  6. I used to watch Automan and still remember his car and how it would take 90 degree turns at speed and throw the detective guy against the window. I kinda "made" the car in one of the Forza games...
  7. Here's the video I was thinking of... and this was January 2020, so before Covid...
  8. I've been seeing more and more about this recently, but it's been going on for a while. I remember getting just about everything for my first home built computer there around the year 2000. But I also remember seeing a video where a guy was going to see if he could buy everything he needed to build a computer there recently and he couldn't. It's like he had a choice of cases, but none of the motherboards they had in stock would fit or he could find a few pieces that would go together, but then couldn't find the right power supply. Pretty sad. There's one not too far from me, but I haven't
  9. I just played Arcana for the SNES for the first time yesterday. Not sure how great it is just yet, but I played for around 30 min and really liked it. It's a first person dungeon crawler type game, like AD&D Eye of the Beholder but a little less complicated. But the real draw for me is that it has an automap feature for the dungeons! No graph paper needed!
  10. One good thing about streaming is, when I do something cool, I have a record. lol... Got a hole in one on Mean 18 for the 7800. (Think I called it "Mean Green" in the video... I was excited.) Also "Wooch" is another streamer who does a lot of golf streams.
  11. Not an "Until I Die" stream, but a timed run of Bonk's Adventure for the TurboGrafx-16.
  12. Forgotten Worlds was on the TurboDuo... could've ordered it from TurboZone Direct for $49.99 back in the day...
  13. My dad won a 2600 and several games as a grand opening door prize at a local grocery store. We already had a 2600, so he let us pick one game to keep from the stuff he won. I picked Yars Revenge. I mean, actually, back then I got all my games for free because my parents bought them, but this one always felt different because even my parents didn't have to pay for it.
  14. I like cilantro. It's great on tacos and nachos and similar foods. There's a lot of people who say it tastes like soap. I think it's a genetic thing? Can't remember for sure, but I think I saw something like that.
  15. I like plain bagels toasted with butter. But I never put cream cheese or anything on them. I also like the asiago bagels. But again, with nothing on them. Don't even toast them. Never been that big on the other ones. I actually applied for a job at a bagel place out of high school. Didn't get the job, though.
  16. I have too many to count, probably... but I'll try to break it down some... Homemade - Fried over easy eggs, bacon, and toast. Cereal - It changes a lot, but as for sugary cereal, Fruit Loops. For not so sugary cereal, Raisin Bran or Rice Krispies. McDonald's - Egg McMuffin Whataburger - Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Taquito with salsa or a Honey Butter Chicken Biscuit IHOP - Breakfast Sampler or Colorado Omelet with a side of grits. Donuts - Regular glazed, but sometimes a raspberry filled
  17. I started off on the 2600 and arcades, so... Yars Revenge - 2600 - Repetitive, but challenging. First game I ever got for free. Gotta love free games! River Raid - 2600 - First game I ever thought I was actually good at. Got a patch from Activision and everything! Ms Pac Man - Arcade - The action, the sounds, the intermissions! Dig Dug - Arcade - A favorite that I try any time I see it. Galaga - Arcade - I remember playing this at the local Dairy Queen. Never was great at it, but another favorite. But after that, the NES is what really made me love video games. Cas
  18. I still have my VCR hooked up, but haven't watched a video on it about a year. The video I watched was a freestyle bmx video, where they're doing lots of tricks on ramps and flatland. It was made by a bmx bike company called Homeless Bikes that used to be in Austin Tx. It's from around 93 or so. My wife is in the video and that's why we have it. (She wasn't riding a bike... she was actually watching a burning TV or something...) I've been thinking about copying that video into digital form and posting it on YouTube, but I'm not sure if I'd get into any kind of copyright issues.
  19. Did you get it yet? How is it? Out of the two, I'd probably get the XBox, but I'm not really in the market for either right now.
