  1. Justin and I have been playing Tennis on NES lately. 🎾 It's fun! Despite being such a simple concept it's a bit tricky.

      That was always my favorite tennis game!

      Nintendo made some really great sports games on NES.  You're right, they are so simple, but still fun and a bit tricky.  Ice Hockey, Baseball, etc.

      Try the Game Boy version, you two! I think it's the better of the two, but they are both very good and very similar.

  2. I love how cozy atari.io feels 🧸

      I love this, Gianna! We should use this as our slogan! :wreck-it-ralph:

      Agreed, Gianna. Have a great Atari Day! :O)

      I just wish there were 52 days in a calendar month 😞  No special 5200 day.  'sigh'  But everyday an Atari day?  I'm down with that.

      That would work.  Instead of "Have you played Atari today?"  you could sing "Make every day an Atari Day."  It's the same pattern.

  4.  Happy New Year everyone! (and Merry Christmas!) A little late >_<, I ended up getting a bad cold Christmas Eve and have been resting a lot. 2 flu tests, 2 strep tests, and a covid test later it turned out to just be a bad cold (luckily!). I'm slowly starting to feel better 🤧

      You get better, Gianna. Glad it wasn't COVID-19. :O)

  5. 379 tickets! Can you guess what I was able to get with them? A small plastic shark that lights up, except the light up part didn’t work, and a jolly rancher 😯  nonetheless I had fun in the Universal arcade!

      That's cool you can make a trip like that relatively easily! I still haven't been to Florida.

    3. Gianna

      Gianna

      @socrates63 never?!? 😮 I live just about 3 hours away, but the drive feels much shorter. 

    4. socrates63

      Never ever been to Florida. Three years ago, I was scheduled to visit HBO Latin America office in Coral Gables, but it got canceled last minute.

      Being up in the northwest corner of the country, driving three hours north gets me to Vancouver BC in Canada, and three hours south is RickR's house. When my kids were younger, we'd drive 5 1/2 hours to Idaho to go to Silverwood Theme Park. It's not Universal Studios mind you, but we'd tent camp across the street and walk to the park -- fun times.

  7. 🎃 Happy Halloween everyone! Time to get spooky 💀

      The movie of choice at our house on Halloween was "Psycho".  It was fun! 

       

    4. DegasElite

      DegasElite

      I had a Happy Halloween myself, for sure. I am sure that you folks did as well. Thanks. :O)

  8. Gonna play Wrecking Crew tonight! 🙂

    1. DegasElite

      DegasElite

      It's a fun game, isn't it? I played it the other day on OpenEmu during the High Score Challenge for it. I wasn't satisfied with the score I got. That was the reason for not posting it on the forum. Not enough practice. I intend to get into the Challenges more, but I need time to practice more. I guess I am a perfectionist when I shouldn't be. But, I will enter other challenges in the future. Happy playing! :O)

  9. 🎃 Halloween is quickly approaching! Do you have any plans?

      I think we've seen it once, so I'll let you know if I notice any plot holes and such.  Overall, I thought it was good and really loved the "muerto" character designs. 

      But I understand what you mean @HDN.  "Up" is like that too.  The first 15 minutes of the film is a masterpiece.  But after that, meh.  I don't ever bother watching the rest of it anymore.

      That movie made me cry! lol

      Yeah the part where he sings the song to his grandma is pretty emotional.

  10. Have a good week everyone ^_^

    1. DegasElite

      You too, Gianna. Thanks for the greeting. :O)

      I pretty much have Mondays off for the rest of the year since I didn't consume all my vacation at work due to COVID and being stuck at home.  Today is the first Monday off, and I'm lovin' it. 

       

  11. It is Sunday! I hope everyone is having a great day, and has had a good weekend so far!

      We get the commercials for Culver's on cable TV, but there is none here. 

      There are two In-n-Out Burgers here in Oregon.  They are slowly migrating in.  The closest one to me is 40 miles south.  Makes for a nice trip once in a while when you feel like cranking up some music and driving. 

      I got combo #3, no onions.  It's a burger (with lettuce and tomato), fries, and drink.  Price = $6.25.  No tax. 

      Interesting to me:  The drive through line is always 45 minutes or so.  I parked and walked in.  Ordered at the counter "to-go" and was out in 5 minutes.

      Ooh that looks good!

      we have culvers here in Florida, not many, but more are popping up! One of my favorite places ☺️

  12. Super breakout and peanut m&ms are the best combo.

      I need that game in my collection and those m&ms in my stomach. Peanut M&Ms are the best! And my Wii emulator thinks Super Breakout is simply "Superb.BIN"

    3. DegasElite

      DegasElite

      I can see how they would be a great combination. :O)

      I'm a Reese's baby myself.  BUT...peanut M&Ms, buttered popcorn, AND Super Breakout are the bomb.  Just sayin' 😁

  13.  Posting from Universal in Orlando ☺️

      Have fun!  Ride that Harry Potter "flying broom" ride for me. 

    2. Gianna

      Gianna

      Unfortunately wait times ranged from 2-3 hours for a lot of rides. I ended up being there from about 11-7 and only got on 5 rides the entire day 😔 fast passes sold out first thing and then were available again for $200 a person.. no thanks. Universal and islands of adventure reached maximum capacity at like 1pm.

  14. I hope everyone has a great week ahead of them! The weekend always flies by.

      LOL. I love the look of the "Apple" guy on the right.  He's just like, "Whatever."  I remember those old Apple commercials.  I miss Steve Jobs' keynotes.

  16. ‼️ I love browsing the forums on my lunch break 🙂

      I don’t remember now 😓 I think Tuesday I had a sandwich from Starbucks, although now I can’t remember!

  17. I love when I think it's Tuesday and then realize it's actually Wednesday 😄 one day closer to the weekend!

    1. RickR

      RickR

      Wednesday already???  It's trash night!  Time to take out the trash. 

       

  18. 🐶 PUPDATE: Sally’s birthday was the 21st. She turned 8. She loves opening presents and was very happy with her gifts ☺️

      Our little Christmas knows which Christmas stocking is hers.  I have to hide it until late Christmas Eve night while she is sleeping or she will yank it down.  

      You have a very cute Sally.  Happy Birthday, Pup!  

  19. 🕹 New Squad Challenge coming tonight or tomorrow! Justin’s moving into a new house.

  20. I was reading the about me section of a profile and thought “wow they are similar to me,” and then immediately realized it was my own profile 😅😳

      No, it’s actually a vaporwave background I found online! ☺️ It does look familiar though.

  21. I think I am obsessed with mini M&M's 🤪

      Yeah, those peanut butter candies were my favorite of all time -- but then I became allergic to peanuts.  Sad, but what you gonna do?   Find a new favorite!

       

    3. Gianna

      Gianna

      I haven't tried either of those! I'm kind of picky. Reese's pieces are good. I like mini M&Ms, and @Justin and I always have peanut M&Ms 😄 

  22. 😲 Can you believe it is nearly July?! It feels like it was just March 2 weeks ago. Has time been going by fast for everyone as well?

      One minute it's 9pm...play a game what feels like a few minutes...next thing I know it's 2am.  D'OH!  Yep, know the feeling.

      You're right, time is flying. 

  23. I'm so glad I have gotten a lot more active. I enjoy it and feel better, and now I hate missing a day of not going for a walk or bike ride!
