Re: 2018/4/3: Arcadia 2001: Parashooter, Golf

My folks picked one of these up as a door prize at a timeshare presentation, with five games, back in '83. I traded it for a Colecovision, but now I wish I had kept it. It's such an oddball that I would definitely enjoy owning one again.

Re: 2018/3/2: Lynx: APB, Gordo 106

APB was never ported very well to any console or computer. The original arcade game, which was designed and programmed by Dave Theurer of Tempest and Missile Command fame (as well as a team of others that helped him), had a perfectly balanced control scheme with its steering wheel and gas pedal. I'v...

Re: My job sucks because...

FusekiGames, thank you for sharing your story. I have worked in the service industry in one capacity or another since I was 15 years old and I can attest to everything you have written. I eventually got out of restaurants and moved to hotels. I have nothing but the utmost respect for chefs who put ...

Re: My job sucks because...

I dishwash. The people and benefits are nice (I get free food), but it's dishwashing. It's gonna suck. I'm probably the highest paid dishwasher on the planet, as its part of my job and all of the chefs that work under me. There's no such thing as being too good to wash dishes in my kitchen, and no ...

Re: My job sucks because...

My entire career, pre and post coin-op amusements operator and pool hall/arcade owner, has sucked. My degreed profession is as a chef, and I burned out early (1997), so I went into business with a friend of mine for about 6 years. He has been in coin-op all of his life (and still is), and I was task...

Re: Obscure Systems

Thanks Fusemigames. I kept meaning to answer Sut's query, but I hadn't yet. Also, those Video Pinball Units are not expensive, so if the resistor surgery doesn't pan out, maybe you can snag the woodgrain model. The surgery should be successful, as I've tested it extensively, found the bad one, and ...

Re: The trash that is on Amazon Prime

Starcrash is such trash. Cheesy acting, bad special effects, David Hasselhoff... I love it.

Re: Obscure Systems

I'll add one more - its also part of the Atari Video Pinball unit along with the pinball variants (some use flippers, some use a pong paddle) and the breakout/breakthrough, and that's BASKETBALL. What makes this different from a pong game (although its obviously is descended from it, is that you *b...

Re: Star wars the last jedi

I liked it. It was a different arc than what many were expecting, so there's a lot of negativity going around about it. Personally, I expected the negativity, as whining has become par for the course these days, and it cannot be avoided without just shutting everything down and sitting in a dark roo...
