Re: Dave wth is Scotland?

I loved that thread myself! I searched far and wide for some pictures - such joy to get a video game system for the holidays!

Re: Dave wth is Scotland?

Hi Gang!

Thanks for asking about me!

I'm fine. This might even be the push I need to game some more.

I'm looking through some posts, and seeing all the names makes me smile.

Re: 2019/9/1: Philips CD-i: A Great Day at the Races, Space Ace

A Great Day at the Races just seems wonderfully 1993. This is what a CD was supposed to provide - a history of hundreds of thoroughbreds. As far as gameplay, its less a racing game than a gambling game, and thats okay. You can relax with a game like that. I noticed there was no licensing. Can anyone...

Re: The printed page

I've forgotten the date, but for things that are in the public domain, you can get those dirt cheap as e-books. For instance, if you want to read Sherlock Holmes or Conan the Barbarian or Lovecraft or Tarzan or many of these Astonishing Tales

Re: Xbox One down on Wednesday

There was just an article in a major newspaper about the boom in home security cameras and how scary and invasive those can be....plus the babycam articles and others. And of course my smartphone is scary beyond belief. I was checking to see if I could take some young people out to a venue, and my p...

As it turns out I found the last book in the series. (Never read one before, but I'd heard that the series was good.) Now I know how everything ends, but I still want more.


You can pick up Trade Paperbacks of Jeff Smiths Bone pretty cheaply. Go for it.

Re: "Nintendo Makes It Clear that Piracy Is the Only Way to Preserve Video Game History"

In some ways, retro-gaming has made enormous strides. I like to game on old 8 bit microcomputers, but I've had some fun either with hobbyist made add-ons like disk drive emulators or complete software computer emulators.

Re: The 55 dollar question...

I'd probably go for the C64 mini. I never had one nor did I know anybody in my circle of friends who had one either when I was a kid. So I'm very curious as to how good a gaming machine it actually was. And since I really don't have the time, space or money to spend on an actual C64, the games and ...

A possible new console being dangled. Seems unlikely a new console would find marketshare without being backed by a giant.
