  • Quick, tell us a joke!
    A pirate walks into a bar with a steering wheel on his pants, a peg leg and a parrot on his shoulder. The bartender says, "Hey, you've got a steering wheel on your pants."

    The pirate says, "Arrrr, I know. It's driving me nuts."

  3. I’m going to shoot to do the live drawing Sunday at 8 PM (eastern). I’ll test it today & if that’s successful, I’ll schedule and share the link.
  4. Please, you don’t have anything to apologize for sir! You’ve done plenty! @Atari Creep
  5. Fallout 3! LA Noire also debuted as a 360 game. You certainly won’t run out of good options.
  6. I had a lot of time to think over the weekend (marathon, raking leaves, etc.) @Atari Creep & this topic popped up from time to time. You're intimidated by this: but are okay using this? 🤣 That thing was scary to 7 year-old me & still is today!!
  7. Thanks to all of you who supported me! I apologize for not being able to stream any of my classics. 😞 I am glad I saw @CrossBow's note in Creep's PS3 thread about LA Noire! I've had that sitting there waiting to be played for years & that was the PERFECT game to play for 18+ hours this weekend. I'm going to draw the order for the prizes in the next couple of days. I'm going to hopefully stream that and I will let you know in advance when that will take place. THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!
  8. I did! I received it on release day, which was a very pleasant surprise. I'm upgrading from the One X, so I don't notice that much of a graphical upgrade yet. I haven't tried any optimized games for the Series X yet (Cold War, AC Valhalla, NBA 2K21) but I will soon. What I have noticed is how incredibly fast it is, loading games, switching between games, etc. and how equally quiet it is. Modern Warfare made my One X scream like a jet engine. This thing is stealthy. I probably wouldn't have tried to upgrade so quickly if I didn't have that Amazon gift card earmarked for this but I certainly don't regret it and am looking forward to what's coming in the future. Once I test some of those games (even Forza Horizon 4), I'll give an update.
  9. So I ran into some issues streaming my classic systems. I could not get the Retron 77, NES Mini or Genesis Mini to connect with my HDMI capture card. If I can get that working this morning, I will begin at 1 PM today with the retro sessions I was hoping to have yesterday. If not, there will be a lot more LA Noire. Thank you for all of your support!
  10. Phil, that was a horrible attempt, but I appreciate the kind words. 😀
  11. Today is the first of my two game days. I feel very underprepared. 😕 Here is today's tentative schedule (all times Eastern): 1 PM - 3 PM: Circus Atari/2600 3 PM - 5 PM: NES 5 PM - 7 PM: Genesis 7:PM - 9 PM: PUBG (first time playing in MONTHS) 9 PM - 11 PM: Modern Warfare* 11 PM - 1 AM: Ori & The Blind Forest** *Game & schedule dependent on if my usual crew of friends joins me. **Game dependent on my mood at the time 😀 Hopefully streaming everything here without any hiccups: Storm's Twitch Channel
  12. Don't be intimidated! I'm as old as you guys & I get by just fine. It's a cliche for sure, but if I can do it, then surely ANY OF YOU can do it. 😀 Seriously, just start slow with something simple. After playing for a little bit, the controls will feel natural. You won't have to think about the sticks or the buttons. I remember VIVIDLY being intimidated by the NES controller the first time I saw it. TWO BUTTONS??? What are these arrows?? That was the last time. Great find sir! Enjoy!
