  1. I agree! I was very young when we got it and it was because of this game that I played all the time that made me love PAC-Man as a kid! I was so young that I played this first before the arcade one. In my mind I thought they made it that way to be harder so it was more of a challenge. Lol Was not till I got older that understood. I was just amazing to be able to play these kind of games at home back then!
  2. My first time joining finally!!! Yay! My first and second try. With my old joystick that still sticks at times lol Playing old school. I was reminded very quickly of the cramping in the hand playing this. I remember as a kid I use to think if I just played it all the time I would build up the muscles in my hand and it would eventually not hurt when I played. Yeah that never happened. Lol
  3. lol that was Lily. We have 2 tortoiseshell cat we adopted last year.
  4. I am actually excited for it! I will not sell my first born for one but I would really like to have it. I did get the NES one but I was not the one who went hunting for it, my step daughter did so my husband could give it to me for Christmas. So if that happen again this year I will be just as overly excited like last year. Atari was my fist come system and SNES was my second. My dad did not fall for the NES hype so I only got to play it when I was at friend's houses. But when I got the SNES (years after it first came out) I was in love with that thing. So yeah even though I have a handful of the games on it I still would really like to have one.
  5. Thanks for the info and link!!
  6. I really like that idea!!!
  7. We definitely have lots of plans. One being tv on back of bar. We had one but right now it is in our camper. The older tvs will not fit, I tried. We are going to be having outlets put in so we can hookup stuff on the bar. Only thing I had hooked up to the TV that was on the bar was my C64.
  8. Yeah I have seen the videos on replacing it and does not look hard at all. Just need to make the time oh and order the part. Lol. ....... My oldest is 14 and she likes the room as a game room. She lost interest in toys at about 10-11 so hoping by then the 4 year old will be a gamer like the rest of us. Lol Fingers crossed ????
  9. So not much yet, but a work in progress. I have not been on here much but I finally made a little video of the game room.
  10. I lived in Texas as a young child and we had Show Biz and Chuck E Cheese. We always went to Show Biz, it was so much cooler! I still to this day can vividly remember how it looked and the felling I had being there! When I was 9 we moved to NJ which had no Show Biz, only Chuck E Cheese. It was not long after that Show Biz was bought and then crushed. I still have a Show Biz watch I got as a prize, the only thing I have left of those great childhood memories.
  11. I admittedly did the same thing. What was up with that?! Lol
  12. I like them all and still trying to complete my collection of all! Still working on completing the 2600 which I think at this point I just need the heavy sixer and the othe Jr. (I do believe there was two designs of the Jr.) Of course I would like to get my hands on 2800 but think that would be almost a impossible. The 2600 will always be my favorite, it is where my love for video games started!
  13. I got the same thing I got for my Secret Santa! I just do not know who my Secret Santa was but who ever it was thank you! This book is awesome!!
  14. Yes I was just thinking the same thing and was trying to find a clip of it on YouTube!
  15. Yes I agree with not risking it now and waiting for it to officially come out. It reached it's mark and then some. Though I will wonder if it will ever be able to be official over any kind of licensing. It even says on the site that they do not guarantee the product like if the company that is producing them could go out of business or whatever so invest at your own risk. I still like the idea of it but of course nothing is as good as the real thing!!
  16. For $59 that would save someone like me time and energy. Something I lack these days. ????
  17. I just came across this on Facebook, what do you think?? I personally think it is pretty cool. You could hang out in any room in your house and take a collection of retro games with or take it to anyone's house. Thoughts? https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/retroengine-sigma-mini-console-media-player-cool#/
  18. Actually always my understanding is Sercret Santa you remain anonymous and a Pollyanna you exchange names. That just how at I have always understood it. But ether way I am sure everyone enjoys it. I also like waiting to Christmas to open my gifts, gives me something to look forward to just like a little kid. Lol No right or wrong way.
  19. I definitely have to try to get to this. Not to far from up. Is there and discounts of hotels for this??
  20. Not sure if anyone has posted about this yet but I am very excited for this!! Hope I post the link correct. https://www.google.com/amp/www.forbes.com/sites/olliebarder/2016/11/30/nintendo-is-teaming-up-with-universal-studios-to-help-bring-mario-into-the-real-world/?client=safari
  21. I am in! Sounds fun! I have a Amazon video game collecting list and also have some gaming stuff on my main list so I will post both up Gaming List https://www.amazon.com/registry/wishlist/2K1P13ALTQAMK/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_ip_wl_o_Wdllyb5R9AQF9 Main List https://www.amazon.com/registry/wishlist/237ZB68F2J6E4/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_ip_wl_o_5fllybMBF0001
