RickR reacted to Justin in Squad Challenge - Ghouls 'N Ghosts (Sega Genesis)
Congratulations @btbfilms76 on your fantastic score! I hope you guys enjoyed checking out Ghouls 'N Ghosts on Sega Genesis! This was a tough one! I was happy to see you guys jumping into this challenge even though there was some emulation required that you may not have had set up. You guys posted some seriously impressive scores on a very challenging Single Life Run. @btbfilms76 posted a score of 15,700 points before the cutoff time last Saturday night, @Control Issues was right on his tail taking 2nd place on the board with a score of 12,400 points, @RickR took the 3rd position with his A-game of 6,700 points played during a busy work week, and @Atari Creep rounds things out with an impressive 5,400 points. Congrats to everyone who jumped in to play in this squad challenge and shared a score!
Note: We've changed our schedule to accommodate for a horrific Halloween Squad Challenge coming up for the later half of October! Our next High Score Squad Challenge will be for the Mattel Intellivision!
GHOULS 'N GHOSTS SINGLE LIFE RUN
1 BTBFILMS76 15,700
2 CONTROL ISSUES 12,400
3 RICKR 6,700
4 ATARI CREEP 5,400
Here's something unexpected: BTB and Atari Creep went into OVERTIME and continued playing the Squad Challenge into Sunday and Monday after the cutoff time (11:59 PM PST, Saturday, September 14th) and ended up posting their best scores. Both btbfilms76 and Atari Creep did livestream events on their Instagram and YouTube channels playing this game and showing how it's done in Ghouls 'N Ghosts. In the spirit of friendly competition I’m adding these scores in a 2nd section called “Extra Credit”. It would be fun to see these two dudes duke it out and keep this alive in the Scoreboard, I'd like to encourage @btbfilms76 and @Atari Creep to post their new high scores on the Scoreboard, and maybe this Challenge can continue on! And don't forget to check out BTB and Atari Creep on YouTube and Instagram!
1 BTBFILMS76 18,100
2 ATARI CREEP 15,000

Update: Late in coming, but I composite modded the above Atari 2600 Vader board and now it has perfect video and audio! Gifted the system to my brother for his birthday with a selection of great games!

RickR reacted to Kid A in Kid A's game room.
So a few days ago, I got a freakin' awesome addition to the game room! FOR FREE!
It needed a lot of work. It was missing a power plug, the insides were so dirty, one of the coin mechanisms wasn't working, Something is also wrong with the PCB, and the cab's paint has seen better days.
Ive already sent the board out for repairs and today I picked up some supplies over at the home Depot and painted it up.
I can't wait to get everything completely put back together and play this thing! This is one of my favorite games of all time! I've always wanted on of these. So awesome to have this cab!
RickR reacted to Atari Creep in Scored my first 800!
Hey guys. I swooped up an 800 today for nothing. I can finally play the GORF cart @Willie!gave me so long ago. Lol This is (aside from an XEGS) my first Atari 8 bit computer. This unit did not come with a power supply, anyone know of an alternative for power?
RickR got a reaction from Atari Creep in Squad Challenge - 2019 Pole Position II Grand Prix (Atari 7800)
Good point! I don't care about my score too much, but I really love seeing a lot of people participating and having fun! GREAT one, everyone.

RickR reacted to jmjustin6 in Thrift Store Finds
Forgot to post this last week but I found an odyssey 2 in the box. Price on it was $90 me and the cashier both thought that was crazy. She suggested I talk to one of the cooler managers and he took $40 off. So I was happy with that.
Today i found the killing joke (havent read or seen the movie yet) at goodwill range up for $1.50. I have heard amazing things about this one. Finally the last goodwill I stopped at today didnt see much but as I was leaving this thing cought my eyes. It's Mr. Pickles! The cashier gave me the strangest look and was studdering her words the whole time.

BTW I used the Sega Master System Control Pad this time for playing Pole Position II. I always have this perception of the Master System controller being clumsy and soggy... Until I pull it out again and actually play it. I don't hate it. I really like it a lot. It felt solid and responsive. After playing Hang On this summer on Sega Master System, the Control Pad felt like a very natural choice for playing Pole Position II. I hadn't done it in a while and plugged it in expecting there to be some issues but it worked perfectly. This is a great option to consider without having to mod an NES controller or custom build a new controller.
