Re: Favorite Grunge Albums

When Nevermind came out, I was in love with it! Played it constantly. I was 16 in '91, so I was the perfect age for it.

Now, I can barely listen to it because of how overplayed it's been on the radio, etc over the years. It's too bad really, it is such a good album.

Re: Vinyl or Digital?

I should mention this record feels a lot heavier than what I'm used to. They must be using different material. Indeed, most modern pressings of vinyl records are now done to the standard of ''180 gram'', whereas pressings done in the past would be considerably lighter. This, I suppose, is to give t...

Re: Vinyl or Digital?

Great insight Bluenote. I agree that CDs are best on balance, but I'm really shocked how CD sales have tanked in recent years. I'm starting to wonder if they will ever have a vinyl-style "comeback" once they are perceived to be old and vintage. I really believe there will be. The fact tha...

Re: Vinyl or Digital?

I'm a big music guy and really fascinated with audiophile stuff. I usually frequent audiophile forums (much the same as video games). I went down this rabbit hole 7 or 8 years ago and here is some information that I picked up: - The debate on what sounds better between cd and records is the biggest ...

Re: No one to play games with

I have my wife and 2 kids (ages 7 and 10), so I'm lucky that I have people to play games with. Right now, we're all working on Link's Awakening for Switch. It started with me playing alone, but then 1 of the kids will come down to the basement and start to help then before I know it the whole family...

Re: Baseball Season?

Unfortunately, I agree with Teddybear in that I don't think any sports will happen this year. Even if they do start a baseball season in June timeframe, all it will take is 1 single person (either player or team employee) to be confirmed with Corona and they will shut it down. I'm a big hockey fan a...

Re: Favorite Atari 2600 Console Variant?

Mine is the light sixer as well. That's the one my brother and I had growing up. I bought one a few years ago to replace my original. I had it cleaned up and modded for rgb. Looks fantastic running through a framemeister! I then bought 2 new joysticks (with upgraded parts) through best electronics, ...

Re: You Have to Go Online

I'm not saying that it can't be used constructively. What I'm saying is that it, on balance, makes things worse for players overall. It is the nature of systems to be exploited. I don't think there's anything to be done about it, nor was there ever. I'm biased in favor of online distribution becaus...
