Madden Day

Ok, I'm really into football now. Rather unfortunate, considering it's June. But for some reason I can't get enough. I know, I'm weird, and what's more, I tend to be into the Cubs in January. Anyway, since it's hotter than blazes in Chicago today, I figured I'd stay in and play a little Madden. In f...

Re: Starfield for the PS5?

Unless you've ready anything concrete, it's difficult to speculate what might happen. Me, I'd be fine with faster and bigger hardware, and I'm sure none of us would mind if Nintendo consoles had better graphics. I think after a few years, you start to see some of the limitations on the current gener...

Goal! (NES)

This review is dedicated to my friend Enko, who passed away of a heart attack at 51 last November. He was my neighbor and friend in my old apartment complex, and he ran the pool. We would watch the World Cup and had some great times. I'll be watching it with a heavy heart this year. Ah, World Cup s...

Re: Smurf: Rescue in Gargamel's Castle (Atari 2600)

Atari 2600 games don't have much depth to them. I actually grew up on the NES, and games have only gotten better since then. Even a few NES games like Zelda or Metroid can hold my attention. But even with the best Atari 2600 games, I find myself enjoying them immensely at first, but then quickly get...

Smurf: Rescue in Gargamel's Castle (Atari 2600)

I forget how I found out so many years ago that you can use the Genesis controller on the Atari 2600, but I'm sure glad I did! Especially for games like this where you need to perform a series of very specific jumps, and just merely touching a wall kills you instantly. I honestly have no idea how an...

Re: Dogs

On the subject of dogs, maybe someone here can give me some advice. About a month ago I moved into a new apartment, and I brought my four year old shih tzu, Mitzi, with me. Mitzi is 100% house trained, but for some reason she's suddenly decided she doesn't want to poop outside, only inside. Four ti...

Re: River Raid (Atari 2600)

Oh wow, now I feel like I've earned something! Only thing is, I used the Genesis controller, which of course wouldn't have been an option way back when.

Re: River Raid (Atari 2600)

Thanks, I'm starting to get back into my Atari 2600. Although, I really should quit playing Activision games before I have to go to bed, because ten minutes tends to turn into an hour, and next thing you know, I'm dead tired at work the next day. Very bad in sales. Whether it's this, or Call of Duty...

Re: I love Switch, but....

Are there any converters or any way I can get the Pro controller for the Wii U to work on the Switch?

Re: I love Switch, but....

Yeah I'm not a fan of the joycons either, and the classic controller is like 70 bucks!
