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 ...

Re: 2018/4/3: Arcadia 2001: Parashooter, Golf

My folks picked one of these up as a door prize at a timeshare presentation, with five games, back in '83. I traded it for a Colecovision, but now I wish I had kept it. It's such an oddball that I would definitely enjoy owning one again.

Re: 2018/3/2: Lynx: APB, Gordo 106

APB was never ported very well to any console or computer. The original arcade game, which was designed and programmed by Dave Theurer of Tempest and Missile Command fame (as well as a team of others that helped him), had a perfectly balanced control scheme with its steering wheel and gas pedal. I'v...

Re: My job sucks because...

FusekiGames, thank you for sharing your story. I have worked in the service industry in one capacity or another since I was 15 years old and I can attest to everything you have written. I eventually got out of restaurants and moved to hotels. I have nothing but the utmost respect for chefs who put ...

Re: My job sucks because...

I dishwash. The people and benefits are nice (I get free food), but it's dishwashing. It's gonna suck. I'm probably the highest paid dishwasher on the planet, as its part of my job and all of the chefs that work under me. There's no such thing as being too good to wash dishes in my kitchen, and no ...
