Re: Remember Type-In Games?

I'm not too proud to admit that I am a bit too young for this sort of thing, but I absolutely loooooove the concept. If I'm understanding all of this right, these were essentially a sort of "paint-by-numbers" approach to programming? As in, all of the steps and information were laid out f...

Re: Scaled down arcade cabinets

There's a pile of them at the local Walmart, not moving. I'm patiently waiting for them to go on clearance, and I'll probably buy a trio; Asteroids, Centipede, and Space Invaders. One of them will most likely end up as a Retropie machine once we get bored with it.

Re: What was your best goodwill video game find?

Not Goodwill, but I snagged a pallet-load of TI-99/4A computers, software, voice modules, and expansion boxes for around $30 at a barn sale back in 2003. By the time I sold off/traded everything, I ended up around $2800 and one Battlezone arcade machine richer. Those expansion boxes snagged $200-$30...

Re: Nostalgic and/or Favorite Video Game Mags

I grew up in the era of mid-70s to mid-80s arcades, so I'm partial to the old magazines. The May 1982 issue of Electronic Games really sticks out in my mind, as it was the very first video game magazine purchase I made with my newspaper route (remember those?) money, and I wore it out by reading it ...

Re: Heavy metal!

I'm just going to dump some stuff I've liked for a while:<snip> Lots of great, classic stuff in your list. Brutal Truth's Need to Control is an all-time classic album, and I can't say enough great things about Godflesh and JK Broadrick's myriad of other projects. Pitch Shifter is another one to che...

Re: Heavy metal!

I saw Ozzy in concert with Metallica supporting their Master of Puppet's album. I was pretty young then. It was my second concert. Before the show I remember some guy started kicking and punching his seat (probably high on drugs), eventually tearing it off the hinges. He raised it up and everybody ...
