  1. 🤔 If you could change ONE thing about 2600 Pac-Man what would it be?

      Thankfully, I can confirm my new Wii U is NOT an early April Fool's joke.

  3. My local Gamestop has a pre-owned WiiU that I've had my eyes on for several weeks now, so I've decided to save up enough to buy it. I've got almost half the asking price of $129.99 now, and hope to have the other half by March. 

    I really want to get into the WiiU Virtual Console before Ninty eventually pulls the plug on it.

      WiiU is still online as of now. In fact, they released a NEW game on the WiiU Eshop just last week. Shocking, I know.

      Oh, I already have a Switch, lol. I bought it on sale from Toys R Us last year when it was going out of business. 

      It was only 5% off, unfortunately, but hey, a discount is a discount.

  5. You know it saddens me that SEGA has never matched the quality / quantity / fun that they generated back in the 8-16 bit era. 😐

      I love Dreamcast. Sadly mine is starting to get finicky about reading discs. It won't play half my games anymore.

  8. Got my hands on a couple of used Xbox 360s this week, but there's no controllers. If anybody here has one extra, I'd be willing to pay a reasonable amount for it. (Gamestop and Ebay are too expensive, I've already discovered.)

      My local Gamestop only has wireless ones, and they're asking $26.99 to $29.99, which is crazy for a controller.

  10. Decided to dip my toes into the world of import gaming. Just bought myself a Bandai Wonderswan Color on Ebay.

  11. 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.

      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.

  12. Finally dragged out my PS2 again, after making sure it was totally dried out, only to discover the only controller I have seems to have totally crapped out. Which is just great. I guess I'm back on the market for a PS2 controller, and in the meantime, no PS2 games. :(

      I'm guessing my PS2 controller got wet or somehow damaged back when the tree fell on the house, I don't know, but none of the four action switches on the right side work anymore. Bizarrely, the d-pad and analog stick on the left side work just fine.

      Dang, I wish I did, but I only have one Gamecube controller. I'll just have to troll Ebay or the local game store when I have time, but either of those options will likely cost more than I'd really like to pay. Sadly, PS2 controllers pretty much never show up at the thrift stores around here.

  15. A tree has fallen on our house. I believe my entire videogame collection may have been destroyed.

      Things are settling down a bit. The tree is being removed today. In better news, I managed to ascertain that my games are all apparently fine, aside from several cases getting wet. My Wii and PS2 are sitting out to dry. Sadly, my two VCS's had water literally pouring out of them. Hopefully they weren't destroyed, but 40 year old electronics? It probably isn't too good.

      Games might be okay, but nearly all my consoles were soaked. Only my Xbox and Intellivision escaped getting wet. I figure I've lost my Wii and PS2 completely. They were in standing water.
