Re: I hate listening to the news. Anyone else?

I just read the local paper. I've shut my eyes to national politics because it just harms my well being to know about that nonsense.

Re: 2019/5/30: Game Boy: Super Mario Land, Duck Tales

Sorry, but SML getting an A+ is simply shortsighted, and I always thought the game was a little cruddy after coming back to it in 2005 for the first time in 15 years. The controls are unresponsive, no matter what system you play it on. The stages are poorly designed, with questionable placement of c...

Re: Songs that defined your childhood?

Gary Numan's "Cars" and Matthew Wilder's "Break My Stride" were always up there with songs I heard a lot when I was younger (around 10). Breakfast in America (the entire album) also echoed around my house a lot in the earlier years (between 6-10). Later on, in my mid teens, I lis...

This is jaw-dropping. I can't believe how great this looks. Can you imagine if we'd gotten that back in the day? It looks better than the freakin' COLECOVISION port!

Amazingly, this game was programmed using a tool called Batari BASIC.

ProTip: get a SNES Classic Mini (official emulation) and fill it with classic ROMs from your favorite systems. https://snesclassicmods.com/


Why not just get a Pi at that point?

Re: Return of Toejam and Earl?

Taking more time to play, and this is proving a worthwhile reboot. I can't believe how damn good this game is! Great way to kill an hour or two.

https://venturebeat.com/2018/02/14/the-retrobeat-a-new-n64-cartridge-40-winks-wakes-up-after-a-long-slumber/ I'm honestly shocked. While a cool collectors piece maybe, this game was utter trash on the PS1. Was there really enough interest for this terrible platformer to justify bringing it out on th...

Did you download it? I didn't know it was already available.


Yeah, it's digital release is already out. Though, I do plan to get the Switch or perhaps PS4 version when those are available. This game, 8 days after release, is already in my top 10 favorite games of all time.
