Re: Help! Game room ideas?

Here's how I did my room, though I had a larger room to work with. I broke with a lot of the norms of game room building. https://youtu.be/Z84_aP_5ChM This is excellent...maybe my favorite gaming set-up that I've seen. Definitely way too complicated for me, but it's amazing that you pulled that off...

Re: Help! Game room ideas?

Here's a progress update. I appreciate all the ideas you guys gave me. Being about half-done with the room, I've used many of them and also came up with some that popped in my head. No matter what the original vision, there is definitely a lot of adjustments that happen along the way. Having a blank...

Re: Every Good System Dies Twice (a.k.a. Rule #1 of Game Collecting, longplay edition)

By the way, remember that the best time to buy retro games is usually after the First Death and before the Second Life. So, right now is a good time to stock up on Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii games. No one cares about them right now, so demand is low with tons of supply. If you wait for the Second Life i...

Re: Every Good System Dies Twice (a.k.a. Rule #1 of Game Collecting, longplay edition)

First off, thanks to everyone who took the time to read and respond to this very long post of mine a few months back. I appreciate you guys finding it thought-provoking.. I just reread it and I must have been eating my Wheaties that day, because I had forgotten writing most of that and found it pret...

Just as an update, I'm about half done with the room, and hope to finish it by March. Thanks to everyone for the ideas; you've helped a lot.

Re: P.O.W. (NES)

Like Pinball Quest, I also picked this game up in the same pawn shop a few months back. Haven't tried it yet, but I bought it based on good reviews I was seeing around the internet (again, thanks to google on my phone), so it sounds like your impressions are on target. Hearing it from you, I'll defi...

Re: Pinball Quest (NES)

I bought this game a few months back. Before then, I had never heard of it. But I was combing through a stack of NES games at a pawn shop and the name "Pinball Quest" immediately caught my attention. It instantly sounds like a combo-genre game. I googled the game on my phone and found that...

Re: New Construction Icon

Little Big Planet is a good catch by esauce. The first one that popped in my head was the Tony Hawk games, since that's the only level editor I've spent a lot of time with. Several of the THPS games have a level editor, although I don't recall which game it started with (I think it was THPS2). One t...

Re: Skylanders Giants (Dad review)

Just a few days ago, I stumbled into Gamestop looking to spruce up my Wii collection, and picked up this game for $0.99. After reading the review and comments here, now I'm interested to try it out. Is it completely unplayable without the portal and figures? At the moment, I only have the game itsel...

Re: New Song by One of the "Pac-man Fever" Guys

Thanks - this topic inspired me to watch youtube videos of the old song and read up on the history of these two guys. I had heard the Pac-Man Fever song before, but didn't know much background on it. Watched the new video too. (I agree with you on preferring the old song over this new one. It's not ...
