Re: My job sucks because...

I have to figure out how to get some passive income, because life is much more enjoyable when you don't work. Having money to invest so you can live off the dividends is the classic way - If you happen to have a $2,000,000 (US), you can buy about 40,000 shares of Verizon. Those 40,000 shares will g...

Re: King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters

Just make sure you keep up on the recent events involved. https://www.polygon.com/2018/2/23/17039412/billy-mitchell-donkey-kong-twin-galaxies-explainer This is a story in Polygon from just the other day. Mitchell has been accused of 'falsifying the platform' and 'using prohibited techniques', and Tw...

Re: Dave’s No Cursing Policy

I am going to echo this sentiment.

I know to some people any profanity is too much, but I like the bar set where it is here. Hearing too much profanity takes my brain out of listening and learning mode to reacting mode. Profanity is emotional language, not informative language, at least to me.

Re: 60 years of Turok

The 90s comic crash is another discussion, but massive crossovers were just the order of the day. Why have great characters like Turok in the past fighting dinosaurs or Magnus, fighting robots in the future, and not put them together - thought just about everyone. Valiant was just one of many that d...

Re: Bosconian clone comming to the Atari 2600!!!

https://atariage.com/store/index.php?l=product_detail&p=1107 Just thought I'd bump this thread. SpiceWare comes around here once in awhile, and he has made a Bosconian port for the Atari 2600 called Draconian. It looks pretty fun. Its 32K, so no way could this have been made back in the day whe...

Re: Mini Arcade Games

That's a neat idea - these are 4 feet high, 17" screens, so you'll be sitting on a stool to play. That Centipede cabinet art is great. I hope they can make others. At $400 (plus I'm sure S&H), its an option for many a game room.

Re: 60 years of Turok

Finally found an old Turok comic. Fairly fun read, and that cover art is amazing. Here's a gallery of the old covers: http://psychosaurus.com/plain/turokindex.html Thanks for dredging up this old thread. Who doesn't want to be a rugged hero in a world of dinosaurs! The Turok cover art is amazing fo...

If you are still using the vintage game switch box, that's the first thing I would ditch.

Re: Early to Mid 1995

Systems? Sure. Mutually incompatible ones? No. The 80s supported lots of computers, and all different but similar enough where ports were not that large a hurdle. Everyone had Frogger. Yet by the mid 90s, these new systems are just so different. When it gets like that, its going to winnow down. Look...
