Re: You should play 7800 HSC (or others)

Besides, AtariAge has a large community, and some of their discussions can get pretty heated. That's fun to read , but I'm not sure if it would be fun to participate in. I don't have many high-scores anyways. :( Atariage tbreads can also be long. Keeping up on topics can be a chore. Good informatio...

Re: Update: Cartridge or NES

Revs advice is solid.

You may not be able to open a NES cart without the appropriate bit. Also, if you opt for a new NES, there are modern reproductions.You can get a Retron 1 with 720p HDMI output for $40 on Amazon, free shipping with Prime.

Holy Cow - a hobbyist put a Raspberry Pi inside an old Tomy Electronics EM driving game and made Outrun!

Re: Retron 5 Review

One issue is that you can currently buy a Retron 5 from Amazon, but the Retro Freak (from Play-Asia) is not currently in stock Thank you Dave and everyone - I am giving serious thought to one of these systems. Like many of us, I have shelves of video game cartridges from the 70s,80s and 90s, but I r...

Re: New arcade machine

Never heard of Pinfest, but I will pencil it in the calendar - thanks.

I am awful at pinball, but for a flat fee, I am more than happy to be awful at pinball for several hours.

Re: New arcade machine

If you are ever near Asbury Park, NJ, there is a Silverball Retro Pinball Museum. You pay a flat fee to play, and has pinball covering the 50s on, including newer ones like Wizard of Oz.

Re: Top Ten Actors of all Time

Fat actors are the best. Jackie Gleason, Chris Farley, and John Goodman. Politics aside, I think Roseanne Barr is a hell of an actress, and I thought that Rosie O'Donnell was great in "A League of their Own". Outside of comedy, add in Sydney Greenstreet, Burl Ives, William Conrad, and Ors...

Re: How Xbox can lose a loyal fan

I don't think we've talked about the Xbox One X yet, and welcome to the boards on your first post. First, the console name sounds like a star ward droid XB1X. From what little I've read, the console is focused on 4k resolution, not improving performance or better graphical settings for 1080p. Its al...

Re: Happy 20th Birthday, GoldenEye

I was mildly surprised this hadn't been mentioned on here - Friday was actually the 20th Birthday of GoldenEye. Whether you love it or feel it's aged poorly (or both!) it is hard to deny the success of this title. Many hours have been (and continue to be, for this fan) invested into this cart. Well...
