  1. I'm on a mission to download every single 3DS Virtual Console game to my 3DS. I have reached 42. Will I succeed? Only time will tell...

      Have you reached 43 yet?

  2. About three or four more weeks till our new house comes in. I'm getting impatient to reorganize my games again.

    1. RickR


      Ah the joys of making plans.

  3. 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. :(

      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.

      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.

      I have tons of PS controllers but not sure how many PS2 controllers I have. I'll look and may have a 3rd party model. Hmm...can you take things apart comfortably? You might try taking the PS2 controller apart and cleaning the carbon contacts on the button pads and the flex circuit inside. That might work.

  4. Been doing a little shopping online, snatched up a couple games for relatively cheap. I'll post pics when I can.

  5. Got my room mostly cleaned out now. It looks like I dodged a bullet and most of my videogame collection was unscathed. A lot of my Wii and PC games boxes need to dry out, though.

  6. Well, the tree has finally been removed from the house. What a week.

      Hurricane Rita dropped a huge pine tree on our house. It was a lot of work from us pulling up wet carpet and padding before the contractors ever got there.

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

      The consoles that got wet might be OK. Give them time to dry out. Might take a month or two but they might still work. Glad you guys are alright.

    3. LeeJ07


      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.

    4. kamakazi20012


      VCS systems are built like tanks! But you could help them out. Remove the screws and pull the mainboard out. Use compressed air of some kind or a blow dryer to dry off the board. At least try to dry off the cart slot...it would most likely rust before other components.

  9. It seems my Dreamcast has died.

  10. May the Fourth be with you.

    1. Rowsdower70


      And also with you.

  11. The NES Classic Edition is discontinued? HOW AM I GONNA GET ONE NOW?

  12. First, I got the Game Boy Camera. Now, I have the e-Reader. My next conquest must be the Game Boy Printer. Then my Game Boy Advance shall be appeased.

      Can you still get paper for that printer?

  13. Well, it looks like my recently acquired copy of Chrono Cross is defective. It completely freezes up for no apparent reason.

      Try having the disc resurfaced. Any local used game store could probably do this for you if you ask nicely.

  14. I seem to be on a Playstation RPG kick lately; first Final Fantasy VIII, and now Chrono Cross. So many RPGs, so little time...

    1. kamakazi20012


      Some of the best RPGs are on that system. If you can splurge for it Final Fantasy IX is solid. There's tons on that system!

    2. Rowsdower70


      Final Fantasy Tactics is also great for PS1.

    3. greenween


      I love FF, but just never could get into FF8. FF 9 is my personal fave for the PS1. Tactics is very solid!

  15. Been getting more Playstation games lately. Not found any Atari in awhile.

    1. greenween


      I took out my PS1 this morning. Gonna spend the day with Metal Gear Solid! :)

  16. Got myself a Game Boy Camera yesterday.

    1. atarilbc


      These were really great. I remember using one for band photos BITD.

    2. Justin


      When those first came out our mall was covered in Game Boy Camera sticky photos that people had put all over the mall. Haha that was a great time :)

  17. Oh my gosh, Steve Woita just wished me a happy birthday on Facebook!!! :o

  18. My birthday is next Monday.

  19. My 3DS is back from Nintendo!!!

  20. We are surviving the rains and floods here. No major flooding my area, thankfully.

    1. Rowsdower70


      Glad to hear that, Lee!

    2. atarifan95


      Where was this flood? I've been hearing about it, but haven't heard where it was.


      I thought I was pretty bad off over here in Michigan (we had tornadoes for awhile), but once I heard about this flood, I changed my mind and decided that the tornadoes weren't too bad (they didn't last very long).

    3. Rowsdower70


      It was in Louisiana AF95.

  21. It would seem that my still rather new 3DS has just died. :(

      I still have warranty... Hoping it can be fixed.

    3. kamakazi20012


      wow. they don't make things like they use to.

  22. Just bought my first ever Dreamcast game: ChuChu Rocket!

    1. kamakazi20012


      That's a fun title! Weird but fun.

  23. Pokemon Go is the wildest thing, ever.
