I like both, but prefer AC/DC.

Re: Booze!

I'm pretty much a craft beer drinker, and usually only have two or three beers over say a week. I often go weeks without a beer, then get hit with a bit of a craving. I'll pick up a six-pack or two of decent stuff, finish them off, and then not have a beer for a month or so. I stay away from the che...

Re: Atari Flashback Portable confirmed for Fall 2016

I ordered one from bedbathandbeyond a week or so ago. I received mine yesterday, and loaded up an old SD card with a few favorite ROMs while waiting for the unit to charge. I haven't played it much, just a minute or two each with maybe 15 or 20 different games. Pro : + Emulation seems pretty good. I...

Re: Miniature NES with 30 built-in games

I'm not surprised by the demand. You could see this coming for months now. Lots of video games and consoles are hyped this way: deliberately create viral interest on the internet, release just a few copies, act all 'surprised' that you couldn't meet demand, and sit back while the hype train pulls ou...

Re: Classic Games get no respect?

I have several 8-bit systems: I prefer the older games to newer ones. When I see a friend playing a game like Skyrim, Uncharted, etc. the graphics are very impressive - but is the game play itself really any different? Jump from this platform to that one, shoot the moving target, flip the switches i...

Re: Mad Max: Fury Road

I saw it last weekend, and not sure what to think. Although the action scenes, car chases, explosions, and special effects are completely over the top (like the other Mad Max films) I thought they were very entertaining - you really couldn't ask for better such action if that's what you're looking f...

Re: Retro VGS Console

While I want this to be successful, I think it will flop. If you want to make a successful retro console that uses carts, why not reproduce an existing system that was well received back in the day? Look at the Sega Flashbacks. I see something like that being successful, but an unknown new system wi...
